the 100 most memorable moments in soap history
Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough), who had been on GH since she was a child, grew up very quickly in the mid-1990s. When Robin's boyfriend, Stone Cates (Michael Sutton), could not shake the flu, tests revealed the worst possible news: Stone was HIV-positive. Stone couldn't bring himself to reveal this deeply tragic news to Robin. Following a gang attack, Robin found the wounded Stone in the motel where they'd first made love. He revealed the terrible news that he was indeed HIV-positive and had already developed full-blown AIDS. The disease progressed quickly, and Robin was by Stone's side as he slipped away from her. In a touching moment, Stone, nearly blind from his disease, was able to see Robin again, as his life came to an end. The death of Stone Cates had an impact on almost everyone in Port Charles, and as Robin continues to deal with being HIV positive herself, the impact of Stone's storyline lives on.
