Noah Drake on General Hospital


Dr. Noah Drake shows up at General Hospital today, to give his son Patrick (Jason Thompson) a heart to heart talk, and some sound advice. It was nice to see them not at each other's throats. If you missed it, it is still available on SoapNet through the weekend.
With rumors of another Drake coming soon, let's hope that means more tv time for Noah.
