General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Ok, so I was wrong. Last week, I said one of the episodes was the one that Jonathan Jackson should submit for his Emmy. Clearly, today's episode should be the one he submits and wins.

Talk about raw passion and emotion. It was all there. Anger, sadness, heartbreak and disappointment. I also think Rebecca Herbst did a bang up job. The fear, the desperation and the lies to try to save her hide.

By contrast, Tyler Christopher spent the episode looking like he was mentally reading the ingredients on a bottle of ketchup, except for a brief moment when he had a line of water coming down his face. It was as if suddenly the make up department realized that he needed to look invested and pulled out the bottle of Visine.

Lines of the day:
Elizabeth: “I love you Lucky.”
Lucky: “You don’t do this to someone you love.”

Elizabeth: “I don’t think we should do this while you’re drunk.”
Lucky: “WHO CARES. Drunk, sober, sober, drunk. Who cares.”

While I hated the idea of Carly showing up in this story, I really did laugh when she appeared at the moment that she did. Talk about the one time you don’t want your mortal enemy to show up! I loved that she got out of there as quickly as she could though, but I hated that she ran to Jason with the knowledge. And really, if infidelity was the point where they take kids away, I’m pretty sure she’d no longer have custody of Morgan or Michael. People in glass houses and all that.

Funny line of the day:
Lucky to Carly:
“I’ll be there. But I don’t think Elizabeth or Nikolas will be there, because they’ll probably be rutting like farm animals.”

I loved the final Lucky and Luke scene. Luke was drinking his coffee, listening to Lucky and then finally, he cut him off from the booze.

I hated Sam and Diane trying to prevent Maxie from telling Mac the truth.

I loved Lulu’s reaction to hearing the news from Nikolas, especially since she’d spent the day finding out about Al-Anon meetings for Lucky. I’m hoping she actually smacks Nik in the face for his lies.

OMG JJ did a fantastic job today!!! Just go ahead and mail his emmy to him right now.  He had me feeling the hurt, pain, sadness and anger he was going through.  He really put it to Liz and I couldn't be happier.  She really had it coming.  The scene where he put his hand on her cheek and said " What happened to that precious little girl that I found trembling in the snow. I'll always love her" had me in tears. 

I agree with other posters that have said Nik didn't rape or drug Liz to make her sleep with him.  I don't see why he was trying to take all the blame.  I mean I seem to remember Liz going over to Spoon island.  She was doing some of the chasing too. 

I think BH did a good job of portraying her hurt and sadness especially at the end when she fell on the couch crying. 

It sure didn't take Michael that long to go over and tell him that Dominic is really an undercover cop. 

Loved the scene with Luke and Lucky.  I'm glad he took the bottle away and told him " A man that has nothing to lose also has nothing to live for."  Hopefully it'll help Lucky stop drinking.

Can't wait til tomorrow to see Lulu give it to Luke and hopefully right after that she goes and gives Liz a piece of her mind.

Marezi--  I disagree with you I think Lulu has every right to give Nik a piece of her mind.  I mean two of the people that are involved are her brothers.  She has a right to say something because what is happening is going to tear her family apart.  I don't think it was right of her to keep the secret of Jake not being Lucky's but she was doing it in the best interest of Lucky.  He had barely gotten sober and she did not want him to fall off the wagon.  She was looking out for his well being just like she is doing now.

I'm sorry, but I really think that Rebecca Herbst could have been better.  Maybe it's just that Jonathon Jackson was giving it his all and I think that I expected more from her and from Tyler Christopher (he just looked bored). 

When Lucky was tearing into Liz, yes, I could see that she was feeling guilty but when she was alone and she started throwing stuff, I just felt that it could have been more powerful. I mean she was okay, but it didn't make me go "Oh my gosh Becky is really bringing it".  However, that's just my opinion and maybe my dislike for Liz right now is clouding my judgement, but I didn't buy it.

My husband was building a fire during todays episode and when it was over he said "Wait, that's it?!"  He's hooked.  Then again, I have him loving KS's Maxie.

He's teaching a commedia dell'arte class and Liz's "I hate you get out of here" to Nik is exactly what the high status lovers do.  I love you, I hate you.  Scorn and reconcilliation.

I gotta say, I"m the #1 RH fan and her dumping the table over and sobbing was pretty lame.  The writing seemed off to me, which in turn set the actors up for not as great a scene as I know they can do.  (Then again, I could have been off.)

Even my husband was calling JJ vampire boy!
I love you all!!!!!

Marezi--hear hear!  Lulu crap.

Yeah for us soap fans!

Watched it all again and I still got goosebumps!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Jonathan Jackson!!!

BTW - The "coffee table"  was actually just a butler's tray on a stand and hence weighs very little.  Sorry but I'm an interior designer so I couldn't let everyone think she flipped a heavy wood coffee table.  She didn't and shouldn't.  Remember in real life RH is pregnant.

Wowowowowow!!!!!

What a great episode!!! I can't truly express how much I loved seeing Lucky rip Liz and Nicholas. They deserved it and oh so much more. I hope Lulu kicks Nik in the nuts and gives Liz a good smack. She's trying to be the good sister and make sure her brother doesn't become an addict again while Liz and Nik are causing it...Blech..Hate them.

- I wasn't all that happy that they dumped Greg V for Jonathan J but with all due respect to GV I dont' think he could have pulled off what JJ did.

- I loved that Carly came in at the moment she did and then ran off to tell Jason about it. (note to Days writers - Sami should be more like Carly and not Marlena). I loved the fact she was gleeful about it because it was realistic. She hates Liz and it showed!

- I feel not an ounce of sympathy for Liz and especially not Nik. But you know they will probably be a couple by the end of sweeps..Whatever.  Don't like either of them.

- Hated hated hated the Dante/Olivia conversation. I hate that Dante is now the latest to gush about the greatness of Sonny. Hopefully that will stop once Sonny shoots him.    Don't ruin Dante to once again elevate Sonny.

Today was amazing!!  Lucky said everything to Liz that I've been wanting him to say forever!  I especially love that he called her out on using the boys to manipulate him.  She did that to Jason all the time too and I hope she finally cops to it during the upcoming Liason scenes.  JJ was, of course, amazing.  I also love RH today.  I'm not really sure why others thought she didn't do well, but I thought she was very realistic.  I mean, what could Liz really do at that point except cry and hate herself?  I hate Liz and I wanted her to get a smack down, but I did empathize.  I know the feeling when you realize your bad decisions are coming back to haunt you and you know you've done the wrong thing and deserve it.  I also love Carly going to Jason and Jason basically not caring who Liz jumps into bed with, just as long as it doesn't hurt Jake.

I think this is the nail in L&L2's coffin.  Of course, this is soap, and they can put any couple they want together.  But really, no one is going to get back together with someone that cheated on them with their sibling.  You don't get over that.

Perkie, if Lucky could sleep with Liz sister and they end up back together, it's possible.

I just loved the whole episode today.  The best part was when Lucky held Liz's face in his hand and said what happened to the little girl I found in the snow, I will always love her.  The look in his and Liz's face was just priceless.  That was the best scene.

Although it was a little sick. Liz just got raped when he found her in the snow. So bascially Lucky was saying he loved weak Liz who needed him to save her. He didn't like Liz before the rape when she was a bad girl. He loved the girl he had to save and who was a rape victim.  That's not love. That's like Lucky loved Liz being dependent on him. He loves her as a victim.

I think BH did a good job. What was she suppose to do. If she would have yelled at Lucky or started falling out and being over dramatic, it would have made her look like a fool.  She took her punishment from him as she should have.

Why on earth would Carly go over to Liz's house to drop off an invitation. It makes no freakin sense.  If she was going to invite her cousin Lucky, then she should have went to LUCKY'S house and dropped off the invitation.  Then her hightailing it over to jason's house to tell him the juicy gossip was so immature. This is the same woman who told Liz she did a great thing hiding the fact Jason's is Jake's bio dad to keep him safe.  Now she wants to snatch Jake from the only father he's known to live with a man who has people like Franco stalking him.  She is just so stupid. I guess she wants everyones kids to be as messed up as hers.  Also that bullcrap about Jason only agreeing to let Lucky raise Jake was if him and Liz was together was false.  Liz and Lucky wasn't together for 2 years and they raised Jake together. They didnt' get back together until August of last year.

Sam had her two seconds of screentime. Oh well.

Sonny calling Maxie names. That pissed me off. Nik trying to "be there" for Liz after what just happened was so wrong. I love Niz but the last thing he needed was to be there for Liz at that moment.

I decided to stay with GH for JJ and I have been rewarded. It is possible to be a Liz FF and still love today's episode which I mostly FF to JJ's scenes.  I thought RH was terrific as well, she played her scenes quietly to counteract JJ's power and I think that was the right choice. TC looked disinterested and his tears looked as though they were applied by the makeup dept.  Even TC's boredom couldn't deter JJ and RH.

Watched again and I am even MADDER.  I cant believe she said "I know you want to punish me but what about the boys".  UGGH Does this skank have NO SHAME.  Its just unbelievable to me how often she uses those boys to get what she wants.  She dangled Jake like a carrot in front of Jason, she dangled them in front of Lucky when she wanted him to cover up the dui and then again when she and Jason were over and she wanted Lucky back again.  Its sad and so damn pathetic.  I loved everything JJ said to her because it wasnt just little old EET or any of the others that get called haters saying that she uses the kids, it was their FATHER.

And of course after all the times Lizziebitch offered her two scents about Carly's life she is going to get a reaction.  Carly couldnt so much as get a cup of joe from kelly's without hearing Lizard's thoughts on AJ and Jason back in the day.  Every mistake Carly ever made was put on blast by little Imogene like she would never ever by stupid enough, slutty enough or selfish enough to do the same and yet OOPS there she is doing the exact same crap only as a grown woman.  And Carly always wanted Jason to claim Jake with the exception of that one convo that always gets trotted out right after the shooting.  I dont think Carly even knew the full story then - that Sonny had dismissed the guards to impress his flavor of the month.  Jason would NEVER take that kind of risk with his child.  She thought super mom and Lucky would be raising the baby together, not that they would be together but that they would be coparents.  Was Carly's reaction mature, probably not, but it was HONEST - Lizzie would have clicked her tongue, tsk tsk did you hear about Carly's latest mess. TSK TSK. all the while thinking how she was totally right all along about her nemisis.

The performances.  The first time I watched I was mesmerized by Lucky, so I didnt the others were so so bad.  I tried to pay more attention this time based on the reactions and comments from people like Nelson on twitter.  Guess what.  Nelson was right.  If JJ was an A+, RH was a B-/C and TC was a big ol D- (I couldnt give the F because at least he was awake which it better than usual)

I got my 23 year old brother to watch soaps with me today after endless attempts!!!! It was awesome!!!. Thank you Jonathan Jackson....lol
Speaking of JJ, where is Season1217? I need to tuck my tail between my legs and be a big girl about this because I think I see what she sees!!! OMG, I could not believe the performance, when JJ was recounting what happened as he saw them have sex and burst into tears, I too teared up majorly (am so f*cking serious).
I will be the first to say am not a Liz fan, but I give credit where credit is due, Becky Herbst did a great job, the look on her face as she was trying to come up with ANYTHING to salvage the situation was amazing, she looked surprised as hell when she saw how angry lucky was. (Ok, I'll put my Liz hater glasses back on now..haha)
Lulu...Let's just say I can't wait to see what she'll say to both of them tomorrow.
Carly was making me laugh so hard, I loved how she was practically panting to Jason's place, yeah..yeah, she's being a 'hypocrite', but come on, Carly is Jason's best friend so that was to be expected and ...she's a little nuts (kinda why I love her).
I don't think I'll be deleting that episode off my DVR anytime soon.
Kudos to JJ once again
I agree with ur assessment of TC's performance, Perkie. My bro was like 'are u gonna say anything?'..haha, it really is so much fun watching soaps with him.

BigDeDe and maxsmom...ICAM.

JJ was awesome.  Becky's reactions were perfect.  Elizabeth is guilty and she knows it although I thought Lucky was a little heavy-handed with the insults considering his infidelity checkered past.    It reminded of when Lucky was being borderline abusive to Elizabeth in times past.  The thing I don't understand is why she allows him to treat her that way.  She hasn't loved him "like that" since she gave her heart to Jason when she was 17 years old.  I like that he pretty much called her on all her crap.  She did what she did with the best of intentions...but you know what they say about intentions.

The only thing I can hope for is an LL2 funeral.  Put a fork in them...they're done.  Kind of like the Dead Horse formerly known as JaSam.  Good land of the living...let them DIE.

Interesting parallel the writers brought out this week...made me wonder what the point was.  Did anyone catch that within several scenes of each other both Lucky & Sam were talking about their conartist past?  Lucky was talking to his dad about the cons they pulled...I don't remember who Sam was talking to...but my thought was...talk about SOULmates.  I never really caught how similar their upbringings were until right then.  Was it on purpose or was it just a coincidence?  Hmmm...

Anyway...today was SPECTACULAR!   Love Jonathan Jackson even though Lucky is still a weenie...I can see my opinion changing over time but I'm still recovering from the last 10 years.

I always wonder (not to start an argument) is whether the writers would ever give Sam something like this.  Something heavy and so soapy.

This LL2/Niz storyline is pure soap. This is the kind of storyline you would have seen back in the heyday of soaps. The fallout was perfection.  JJ and RH was outstanding.

I wonder if the writers will ever give KeMo such a juicy soapy storyline that would have such an awesome fallout. I wonder if they think she could handle it.

BigDede -Give me a break!  KM is a much better actress that RH so I think she can "handle" whatever the writers might dream up.  And she has certainly had dramatic and emotional storylines in the past like loosing her baby for one.  Perfection in the acting department.

I thought JJ was AWESOME today but I was unmoved by RH and bored by TC.  KM certainly never bores me or leaves me unmoved no matter what the writers through her way!

I loved today episode JJ rocked it today , he was amazing amazing
also I agree RH and TC were less better .....
Lucky  said what every Liz hater feels about her 

I just love that  carly was there she is so carly and I love her , I just love that Lucky opened the door even though Liz didn't want him , and he called Carly hey Cous LOL Liz didn't want it because she knows Carly would love it , and she was right...
Carly was so cute  she run to Jason to tell the good news , I think Lucky knew that Carly would go straight to Jason.....
And I also think Carly had a point with Jake , i don't think Lucky wants to be Jake and Cam father any more ...
And Jason agreed that Jake will have both parent...
So Carly was right  go Girl 

Dante is the most stupid cop ever !!!!!!!

Loved how Diane  came to Maxi rescue !!
Sonny should have never called  Maxi names after what he did , I loved that Jason had faith in her ...

I was riveted.  I think I agree with a little bit of everyone in a liz category today  (haters, lovers inbetweeners, and don't give a flying $hi!ters).  The entire time Lucky was giving it to them I kept thinking this is a SOAP.  JJ was ON point...he gave it to them hard and said things she needed to hear.  He gutted her like a fish, kid it was brilliant.

I think RH had the right reactions.  Liz could hardly be explosive when she was caught dead to rights by the one person she didn't want to call her out.  Watching her squirm and struggle to find an excuse, the different emotions on her face worked for me.  She just looked helpless and cornered and well she was...

I loved every line Lucky used. but the line:  "passing yourself around like candy" was the best.  It also made me think he was not just angry at her for Nic, there was clearly some residual Jason stuff as well.  

BigDede:  the line he used about the snow...do you really think he was refering to finding her that night?  It does say alot about his impression of her if that is the memory he treasures.   More importantly, that chick is long gone.  Smile

JJ was so good, he made Jason tolerable to me again.  So much so I broke my strict FF Jason rule and watched a Jason scene for the first time in months. .

WOW...I was worried when JJ joined the show again thinking the character outgrew him, but WOW.  He owned that show.  I too, think RH was a little weak, and actually didn't mind TC reactions.

And I too, think Dante is one of the worst cops in the world.  I'm fine with the whole other people hearing conversations, if it's in a back alley or something, not in the middle of the docks.  That gets lame.

All in all....GREAT job JJ, your emmy awaits you.

They're about as likely to give something like that to her as they were GV.  GV's Lucky didn't have as many lines in a month of Sundays as compared to ones they gave JJ's Lucky in ONE day.  They (GV/KeMo's characters) were/are there to look pretty and make Jason look like a super stud.  Not much range required for that privilege.

Today show was amazing.  Loved every bit of JJ looking like he was about to turn into a Vampire oh it was great.

Hated Carly today because it was like the Pot calling the Kettle black!!!!  If Liz deserves to lose her kids then Carly kids need to be taken away and her tubes ties  so she is not allowed to anymore with the dumb ass choices she makes.

All Liz did was have an affair granted it was with her brother-in-law but that it.  Carly on the other hand Choses to keep her kids in the mob life even after all the crazy sh*t that has happen to her kids.

doodleynoodle:  I will have to agree with you I don't see them giving Kelly a story with such good writing. 

I'm not a big Sam fan but they do have her there to make Jason look good.  I bet this so called big storyline that's coming isn't really that big at all.  Like I have said in a few post of my they are just making her a female Jason.  I know this might sounds pitty but they even starting to dress her like him except they might throw on that brown leather jacket.

Must start out with giving much praise to BigDede, Maxsmom, Doodley you guys nailed it. 

Bigdede - I was coming in here to mention about why the Fluck would Carly be heading over to Liz's house instead of Lucky's but you nailed it.  Also, Big we can't have Sam ever involved in something so horrific as a triangle because really that would mean someone cheated on the all powerful Jason and we know that could never happen.

I would like someone who thinks RH did not do a good job yesterday explain what they would have liked her to do, is there a certain way she should have thrown the furniture, should she have gotten indignant and yelled.  Please explain, because what I saw yesterday was an actress giving what the scene needed.  Yesterday was about Lucky/JJ.

I only hated Carly having to be present and  Lucky uttering the line about does cheating turn you on.  Really Lucky?? She only cheated on you ONCE(before this), and that was when she caught you CHEATING.  See selective writers memory.

MEMO TO FRUZA - this is what we want to see, not stunts..driven stories with legacy characters and a nod to history.

 I don't see why h  e was trying to take all the blame.

Actually, I was kind of glad that he did.  TC spent the entire episode looking annoyed.  Annoyed that his tryst with Liz is over.  Annoyed that Lucky knows.  Annoyed that Lucky is confronting them.  The least he could do was try to take the blame and take some of the heat off of his partner in crime.  If he truly loved her, that's what he'd do.  (Not that I'm condoning his behaviour or absolving her of her part). 

TC needed to show some signs of guilt.  Guilt that he's messed up his brother's life.  Guilt that he's mess up a relationship.  Guilt that he's messed up the trust between him and Lucky, and he was not showing me any of that.

As for RH, there was only so much she could do at that moment.  She'd been found out, and she was grasping at any straw she could.  She showed me guilt and fear and desperation and those are really the only things she could show.  Liz couldn't get angry, because she had no place to be angry.  She couldn't start yelling back at Lucky, blaming him, because none of this was his fault.  I think RH did what she could with the material that she was allowed.

It sure didn't take Michael that long to go over and tell him that Dominic is really an undercover cop. 

The wording in that conversation was weird.  Instead of saying that Dominic is a cop, he says, "Dominic is working with the cops", which isn't the same thing.

 

Perkie, if Lucky could sleep with Liz sister and they end up back together, it's possible.

I don't think you can compare the two situations.  I don't remember how "together" L&L were at the time, but they weren't engaged to married.  If I remember correctly, Lucky slept with Sarah once.  Liz and Nik have been getting it on for months, while they both lied to Lucky about it.

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS SINCE FRIDAY AND I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. EVERYBODY KILLED THIS SCENE FOR ME. I LOVE LUCKY'S RAW EMOTIONAL. I LOVE HOW HE WENT FROM ANGER TO SADNESS. I STARTED CRYING AT THE END WHEN HE GRABBED HER CHEEK AND TALKED ABOUT THE RAPE. I LOVED HOW IZ COWARDED LIKE A LITTLE GIRL. THE ENERGY BETWEEN JJ AND RB IS GOLDEN. AND I MAY GET PUNCHED BY EVERYBODY ON THE BOARD, BUT I LIKED TC AS WELL. IT WAS LIKE HE WAS SCRAMBLING FOR THINGS TO SAY, BUT KNEW IN HIS MIND THAT NOTHING HE COULD SAY WOULD FIX THIS. I THINK RB AND JJ DESERVE EMMYS FOR THIS ONE SCENCE. I AM SUPER CARLY FAN AND I AM GLAD THEY WROTE CARLY THAT WAY IN THE SCENE. SHE COULD HAVE STAY IN TAUNTED LIZ, INSTEAD I FEEL LIKE SINCE LUCKY HAS BEEN HELPING MICHAEL LATELY SHE FELT THE PAIN FROM HER COUSIN AND KNEW IT WAS SERIOUS HENCE SHE GOT THE HELL OUT OF DODGE. FINALLY, WHEN LULU CALLED HIM A BASTARD AND LOW DOWN SELFISH PIG I WAS THINKING I LOVE THIS GIRL EVEN MORE.

 SIDENOTE: I WOULD BE EXTRA PISSED TO IF YOU HAVE ME RUNNING AROUND TOWN THINKING MY DRUG ADDICT BROTHER HAS FELL OF THE WAGON FOR NO REASON EVEN IF YOU DIDNT KNOW HE KNEW ABOUT THE AFFAIR.

I BEEN LUKE FAN SINCE I STARTED WATCHING WHEN I WAS IN 5TH GRADE. THE MAN'S SUBTLE AND SUBDUED PERFORMANCE TODAY WAS MARVELOUS. EMMYS ALL AROUND.

sb_fan, what is there left to say? Jonathan Jackson is the motherf*#%ing man! I take issue with some of the dialogue, but you find the person you love in bed with your sibling and we'll see what names you would call them. I liked that he acknowledged that he said terrible things but was too numb to regret it.

Okay let us all please get over the fact that Carly came to Liz's as we all knew it was going to happen and just be happy about the rutting like farm animal line that was used!

I absolutely loved the past week of GH. The lead up to this reveal and the lead up to the reveal of Dante being a cop is amazing stuff right now! I cannot wait for that ball to drop and loved that they just had Sonny look at Michael and not say a word.

Dante running to Olivia and airing his concerns should not make anyone worry. While I do feel he is showing remorse and some would consider that the sign the writers are going to have him turn into the mob mole, I myself do not see that happening. It proves that Dante has the good that Sonny has. That he is a man and understands it goes beyond Sonny's bad dealings that make the man. That being said Sonny does need to atone for his sins. I so wanna see Sonny and Anthony sharing a cell together!

Back to the best part of GH yesterday and Friday: JJ performance had me at the edge of my seat. I was amazed and wondering if this will get him a Supporting Actor Emmy or Lead Actor. What a coy that would be and a huge slap in the face of GV. Although I do not believe that GV could have done better or even as close to good as JJ did. I will say though TC played it very interestingly. I feel he showed that he is becoming a Casadine and didn't play it like he was sleeping. It will be interesting to see if he gives into the bad and try's to get Lucky back for hurting Liz considering now Liz doesn't want Nik!

Carly running to Jason wasn't too bad! She did admit that while not the poster of perfection, Liz is just as human as the rest. Loved it!

Favorite part of all was Luke drinking coffee and cutting Lucky off the sauce! Way to go!

I needed a cigarette after this episode!  Jonathan Jackson was absolutely fabulous (Except at the very end.  I thought he hammed it up a little with the tears before he left Liz.).  And yeah, the language was harsh, but remember, Lucky was drunk, and if they did actually have him acknowledge that what he said was uncharacteristic, then I give the writers kudos for a little bit of self-awareness for once.

And I'm definitely not a fan of BH's acting, but she was at least ENGAGED in those scenes.  She gave JJ what he needed to get through that scene with the rage he needed.  Tyler Christopher looked like he couldn't be bothered to care, and I for one am frankly sick of it.  When Natalia Livingston was on, everyone had to talk about how Tyler was the better actor, blahblahblah.  Maybe Natty was the weaker actress, but she was engaged every time she was onscreen.  And Becky Herbst is too.  And I'm tired of the actresses being the ones to suffer for a bad pairing with Nik when TC looks like he's too good for this show.  Leave already if it's so beneath you.

GH Lover - Dante is absolutely NOT a stupid cop!!!  I do think knowing that the end to his investigation is almost here has made him a little careless.  Unfortunately in his line of work careless can get you killed.

Perkie - "The wording in that conversation was weird.  Instead of saying that Dominic is a cop, he says, "Dominic is working with the cops", which isn't the same thing."

I presume Michael couldn't hear every single word all that clearly from his hiding place so he heard the word cops and jumped to that conclusion.

Still in awe of JJ's performance from yesterday!  AWESOME!!!
