General Hospital: Perkie's Observations




My Performer of the Day has got to go to Constance Towers (Helena) again, although Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) was right up there (that’s right and I’ll get to her in a minute).

I love that Helena’s away for months, heck, years and yet knows the score on everyone in town. She knows how long Liz and Nik have been at it, knows that there’s been a rift between Lucky and Liz and knows that Luke will be happy for Lucky if it turns out this isn’t Lucky’s kid. She just knows.

Lucky: “We don’t know who’s baby this is.”
Helena: “Imagine, Liz and Nikolas, rutting like animals all over Windemere for many months. I don’t think the odds are in your favour.”

Helena to Lucky: “Your love has been dead for a long time.”

I also liked the scene with Luke, although I get tired of Luke threatening to break her neck everytime she comes back to town. Either do it or stop mentioning it already. They do make an interesting, if not icky, pair.

Luke: “Can I make you a drink?”
Helena: “Only if you taste it first.”

Now onto Olivia. I’ve been hating on her for months, but today she redeemed herself a little. I loved that she gave Carly a good smackdown. I just wish it had been more. I also loved that when Dante started in on her, she reminded him that she was his mother, lies or no lies. I loved that when Sonny started with the ‘woe is me, my son, my son, my son’ routine, that she didn’t back down and basically said, yes if she were to do it all over again, she would. She would tell Dante when he showed up in PC, but she still wouldn’t tell Sonny. Now, if she can maintain her convictions and keep out of Sonny’s bed, I’m good.

Olivia to Dante: “I’m still your mother and I expect your respect and when you get on that witness stand, I hope you respect yourself too.”

The Liz/Lucky scene was rather creepy. She’s begging for forgiveness and he says he does, but then looks like he wants to go and puke in a corner somewhere.

I loved Liz treating Nikolas with total disdain. I’m guessing she won’t say yes when you propose.

Why are Carly and Jason wondering how to deal with Dante, since he’s a cop? Treat him the same way you do Mac and Lucky.

Was that gunfight between Max, Milo and Johnny supposed to be silly? They were about two feet from each other, shooting like maniacs, at nothing and hitting nothing. It was very weird and random.

What a way to end a Friday. Oh no, will Lucky and Maxie survive?

Couldn't agree more on all fronts.  Helena was hilarious today, Liz freezing Nik with her eyes was awesome, Olivia finally doing some truth-telling and standing up NOT for Sonny (the man who tried to murder her son -- who cares if he knew) but for herself and, more important, for Dante and everything he stands for.  Loved, as you did, that she basically said she never would've told Sonny the truth, she just would've told her son and let him handle it the way he thought right.  Though if she'd thrown a knife at Carly, I wouldn't have complained.  I loved that someone finally mentioned the endless parade of inappopriate visitors coming to traumatize a shooting victim.

Am I the only who felt that maybe KS did something to piss off the hair and wardrobe departments?  Either that, or I have lost what little fashion sense I used to have...

Totally agree about Olivia, I loved everything that came out of her mouth today.  She did raise a good man on her own and gave him a childhood that his brothers never had and that should be a mother's priority.  Carly on the other hand always seems to put her children third after Sonny and Jason and doesn't seem to remember the harm that's come to them over the years.   I too wish Olivia said a lot more to Carly.   Carly has the nerve to want everyone to lie for Sonny but it's wrong for Jax to lie to protect his family.   Please.

Everything Lulu said about the Lucky/Liz/Nik situation is true.   Both guys will be all over Liz and she'll come out of this like Madonna.  Now I do like Liz but she knew what she was doing and actions have consequences so no I don't feel for her.   Another mother who didn't put the welfare of her children first (is it the water in PC or is it that Pratt I mean Guza has no respect for woman).

I've really had enough of Helena.  This is getting so old.

I don't think it was just you.  Now I don't consider myself a fashionista but KS/ Maxie looked absolutely bloody awful today.  What was up with that hair and that boring outfit and kilt?  Yikes!!!

Not at all!  It was terrifying!  Was that, like, a ponytail fauxhawk?  Yikes.

Very, very well put.

Perkie, I agree with everything you said.  I was hating that Olivia had not slapped Sonny in the face for shooting her son and then having the gall to blame her, but her standing up for herself against him and Carly has done a lot to redeem her in my eyes.  Like Sonny and jason, I was disgusted enough with Carly today that I no longer have any notions of liking the character.  That she would not only ask Dante to lie in court and give up his noble profession for a criminal who shot him, but try to make it seem as if he was in the wrong and owed it to Sonny, was completely in character, but as such that is a character I can no longer like.  If it wasn't before, it is clear now that she is not mad at Jax for lying, she is mad that he tried to help Sonny get what he deserved, which is her chosing Sonny over her husband.  I wanted them back together, but now I want him to divorce her and get custody of Jocelyn.  I feel bad for Morgan if he does not have the halfway decent influence of Jax (not that he is perfect) in his life, so he will grow up thinking that Sonny is some great sacrificing father, and not a murdering selfish douchebag. 

Sonny crying in that scene where he was Yelling at Olivia about keeping Dante away from him and making Dante hate him, was laughable.  He did not think that AJ deserved to konw his child, and his crime was being a recovering alcoholic with a controlling family, not a career criminal.  While MB was pretty good, I still felt not the slightest bit of pity for Sonny.  This sitation is all because he CHOSE a life of crime.

I also had issues with Carly and Jason implying that Jason would kill Dante for being a cop investigating him,  They have never tried to kill Mac or Taggert, so why would Dante be any different?

Finally, Helena is the gift that keeps on giving.  I love every moment that she is on screen.  Not only is she hilarious, but she is always calling everyone out on their crap.

I don't understand Carly asking Dante to lie. When she left Sam yesterday I thought she had a good plan in motion but to ask him to in a round about way to say it was all a lie, that is not making any sense.

Have to say that Dante needs a day off. He has been off screen just five days since August. They never learn to much is really too much.

I hope Olivia and Carly become enemies. Just because. (also because I am tired of Olivia, LOL) I try not to get involved in either of their (Dante & Olivia) stories.

What do you call that "shoot out on the docks" What a pitiful sight that was. Johnny is not very good at this. He should just stick to driving fast cars, working on cars and walking the buildings top ledge.

Helena is just awesome as always. Love everything that comes out of her mouth.
Luke doesn't seem bothered that she wants the Cassadine heir as long as she leaves Lucky alone. Hells and Luke,  a toast Click glasses together . LOL

Lulu made sense again today. OH MY. Roll your eyes girl because I do the same thing when anything is said about poor  "Madonna" Liz..  Now I ask again, Why is Liz "crazy"? What drove her to "break down"? I do not see a broke Liz. I still see a manipulative woman. She is not wanting to get better. She is wanting out of Shadybrook and for Lucky to forgive her. and once lucky forgives her then she can say "F-u to everyone else in Port Chuck.  What is Liz going to do when she finds out Lucky is not forgiving her and that he lied because that is what she needed to hear? she cries and carries on when Lucky is there but she is strong in defying Helena (scared yes but strong in her standing up to Helena), she is snarky with Nik whom she sure does seem to blame for making her cross the moat over to Windermere and seems to be putting all of the blame on him.
I think she is going to come out of Shadybrook bitchier then ever as she finds out Lucky is NOT falling into her web and then the games can begin. I think if she plays the bitch I could get behind her. it is this twofaced person I can't get behind and never will but if she come out and owns her bitchiness hell I will get on her board. At least I will know where she stands then. She is to wishy washy and I hate that.
 
I told my husband if I ever go missing in a hospital to make sure he looks for me up on the roof first, not in surgery, not walking the floor to get my strength back, not going to the bathroom, not visiting other patients, not going to the vending machines or cafeteria but to check the roof first becasue all good patients go to the roof. (even though the doors have the buzzers / alarms on them if you do go out that way)

Marezi, What do you mean you "don't understand Carly asking Dante to lie"?

Of course Carly is going to ask Dante and anyone else to lie if it means preventing Sonny  from going to prison. That is the man she loves, and it's definitely not Jax no matter what those GH writers want us to think.  I think any one of us would do the same thing in Carly's position no matter what, 'cause love is blind (which is a good and bad thing).

I am so over Lucky and his constant weeping and pulling guns out on people.  He looked like a moron holding a gun on an older woman.  I don't care how much of a bad ass she is.  I don't know why either man is going after Liz.  Ugh.  I'm with Ms. Lulu on Liz.  This week was kind of tedious but I always love sitting down after a long day at work and getting into the complete fantasy world of GH.  One thing I loved throughout the week was the valentine theme with some of my fav couples.  They were light hearted and fun.  It was a relief after all the boohooing going on.

SoapCrazy=Not all of us would do the same thing (EVEN if we were in love) If i were to ever be in love with a loser like Sonny who would shoot a cop ( or anyone for that matter) I would turn his ASS in to the police and help them build a case against him.

The amorality of General Hospital with the con artists and the mob being the (anti) heroes and the cops, and powers that be always being corrupt has reached its logical disgusting end with the current plot lines.

The rationalization for Sonny and Jason not having been written into a corner a long time ago was that they only seemed to kill people who were as sleazy and sociopathic as they are ( e.g. faith, and any number of minor characters that were basically brought on the show to be killed by the "good" mob).

That anyone on this show is not kicking sonny in the balls for shooting dante shows the utter lack of credibility and integrity of this show.  It doesn't matter that Dante was Sonny's son. He crossed the line of trying to kill someone who was a "good" guy--not someone who had chosen the life and violence of the mob and was as tainted as Sonny and Jason and crew.  What's next--Mac or Lucky has some evidence on one of their crimes so its fair game to rub them out as well? 

Dante's motivation because Sonny had killed a cop who was his childhood mentor, gives a disgusting  rewriting of history that Sonny has a longer tradition of crossing these lines?  (And maybe I am missing something and the man Dante thought was a "good' guy was also on the take and murdered innocents as well so his killing was "justified."

But regardless, the show allowing Sonny to ratiionalize and Jax and Olivia to be the only ones to hold him accountable for his crimes is obscene.  Alexis, Diane, Sam, Carly, his own kids, and anyone else who has not crossed the lines and killed someone in the name of protecting Sonny's lifestyle (because shooting a good cop is certainly not about honor) should round up their kids, drop him like fresh poop, and have nothing to do with him.

The only way I could imagine them redeeming Sonny and Jason (who continues to encourage Sonny to off Dante???!!!) would be for this to be a crisis of confidence and for them to begin thinking that a) they have no write to protect themselves at anyone else's cost (they have a very broad interpretation of self defense) and b) that there just might be something wrong with killing even the bad guys. (Oh, I forgot, Sonny isn't really bad because he's not into drugs.._)

There comes a point that good drama (and due to Olivia, Dante, Lulu and a few others, there is some powerful acting going on) does not justify plot lines that are not only amoral, but immoral.  To encourage people to buy sonny's and jason's crap (which is the net result of not writing characters to challenge them--even olivia is pulling her punches by being part of the cover up of dante's shooting), is simply wrong. To paint people who kill people who get in their way as romantic heroes is wrong. And I would hope there would be an uproar even from the fans who think the mob scenes make for good television.

I, like everyone else is not seeing the connection the writers want us to in regard to Liz and Lucky.

She needs to stop worrying about Lucky's forgiveness and worry about Helena!!!  I want her to kick some Cassidine butt!!!

But is that really Liz' fault?  What does it say about both guys that they want so badly to be with her?  Lucky wants to be her saviour, but what the hell does Nikolas wants?  He says he loves her, but I don't see it.

I know Carly will lie and ask anyone to lie for whatever reason she wants them to lie. But I just don't understand what she said to Sam the day before saying something about getting the right person to tell the right lie. I thought she had a better plan than to just say lie for Sonny. I really did think she had something planned where he wouldn't be able to not lie for Sonny. Hell anyone can just ask him to lie. It was a let down because I thought it would be this cool revelation of some sort...LOL I was disappointed , let down and couldn't bleieve she didn't have a grand scheme of some sort and just said what she did. Carly is losing her touch.

Perkie in a way it is Lizard's fault that those two are in knots....I dont understand why suddenly she HATES nik...oh yeah because its all his fault...he dragged her into this....he hypnotized her into leaving her kid in the hospital to go out for a booty call.  Then there is Lucky....if you know someone is justly angrier than all get out with you, you might ask once if they forgive you, but when you dont get an answer, who ups the I'm fragile ante - all trembling lips and flowing tears....you do forgive me dont you  sniff sniff.  The whole scene was puke-worthy.

Back when we were suffering through Jiz, there was all this stuff being posted on this board about how Lizard certain didnt need to have Jason teach her about guns, she's tough enough to hang with Jason, just as tough as Sam etc. etc. So if that is true, why is she suddenly this fragile little thing that needs big bad Lucky and Nik to protect her. I am totally with Marezi on this one...the whole fragile Lizard thing comes across as phony as a three dollar bill...I never thought she was as tough as Carly or Sam but how many times has she said I'm not glass.

I was born, raised, and still live in NYC.  The Mob, if it existed, and it doesn't, would have a rule against killing cops because cops would band together and turn over every rock to find the killer. A cop might miss number running, prostitution, and even drugs as long as they aren't dealt near schools, but killing cops affects all cops so in general it's a no no. Now Port Charles is a standin for Rochester not NYC but I would guess the rule would hold nationwide. And Sonny, like me, is from Bklyn. so he would know.

MAXSMOM - I live in Upstate New York.  Not too long ago, a State Trooper was shot during a regular traffic stop for speeding and was killed.  The entire state was on hold for days while every officer in the state hunted the shooter down and he was killed.  There was no escape for the guy.  The end was inevitable.  It doesn't have to even involve the mob.  Cop killers face retribution.  This whole Sonny crap is crap.  There is no way Sonny should have ever been allowed anywhere near Dante's room.  There would have been a sea of blue surrounding the room while his fellow officers waited to see if he made it out of surgery.

Ok, I don't necessarily beleive what I'm about to write, but here's how I see it.

Regarding Nikolas.  For whatever strange reason, she suddenly felt a weakness for him.  (I don't get it, but I'm not a fan of TC.  Maybe if it had been Dante or Patrick or Johnny, I'd get it, so maybe I'm biased against Nik and Niz, but whatever).  She kept telling him that they couldn't do what they were doing, but he kept pushing her.  Yes, she could have stood firm on the NO, but that's what weakness is. 

So now, her life has imploded and while 50% of it is her fault, she's seeing it as entirely Nik's fault, because she asked him repeatedly to leave her alone and he didn't.  (I'm not talking about the first time when she row, row, rowed her boat!!). 

I don't beleive for one second that Nikolas is in love with her.  TC or Nik have not shown me one iota of that.  I think he's infatuated with having the girl that his brother loves so much. 

Maybe she sees that too, so that makes her extra pissed off.  Add on top of that, crazy Grandma Helena showing up two seconds after she's committed herself, to claim a 3 months fetus and well, you have a pissed off chick.

As for the Lucky scene, I agree that it was icky, but I'm fanwanking it that she had just had a screaming match with crazy Helena, where Lukcy drew his gun and where Helena basically said everything nasty that Liz has been thinking about herself and she was ready to break. 

I don't know.  Maybe I'm trying to see more than what is there.  <heavy sigh>

Liz is begging Lucky to forgive her because she doesn't forgive herself.  SHe committed herself so she could get some much needed counsel so she could get stronger for herself and her children.   She wasn't in Shady Brook more than half a minute before Helena shows up and essentially tells her that Helena controls the hospital staff and plans to control her child.  That isn't a very condusive atmosphere for Liz to get help.  How will she learn to trust the medical staff if she always wonders who is on Helena's payroll?  I wish they had held off on springing Helena on her at least until she has had a few sessions with a doctor.  Will she get help?  Why didn't she tell Lucky or Patrick that the orderly was taking orders from Helena?  I really don't like that part of it. 

I liked that Lucky was supportive.  It is in the boys interests that their mother get her head together.  That makes it in Luckys best interests as well.  I don't think Liz is playing games.  I think she is genuinely out of sorts.  I don't think Liz believes that she deserves Lucky.  She sabotages their relationship every chance she gets.  I hope she gets to discuss why she does that.  I hope Lucky and Nikolas get to work through their issues as well.  Lucky wants to rescue her every chance he can get and Nikolas is still competing with Lucky. A joint session with a counselor might be in order.  In the end, I don't want Liz with either of them.

I like that Patrick and Robin will be supportive friends.  I always like when characters intermingle between different storylines.  I don't like it when the characters are isolated from each other.

Perkie...just two questions...first, how many of the niz boinking sessions took place at wyndemere and how many took place at Casa de Liz??  Given that the later was like 2% (for the almost boinking that Lucky interrupted) and the rest at the Prince's abode, how was it that Nik pushed??  Which leads to the second question...when Nik decided to leave town the second time what was Lizard's response?? I think it was I love you, I love you, I love you, one more time for the road, we shouldnt, but lets. 

See I always saw it as nik pushing with respect to the honesty aspect - time and time again he said I love you, I want to make this real, lets tell the truth and see where things go. Whether he meant it, whether he wanted her because she is the next closest thing to Emily, whether he wanted her to compete with his brother - I dont think it really matters. The point is he never pushed her to have sex, he simply pushed for honesty.  That is the reason why all her animosity towards him now seems self-serving and contrived...and I think it actually is that she is angry that Lucky and Lulu were harder on her than they were on Nik - if thats the case, doesnt that buttress the idea that this is all about how she is seen and her hangup about being the Princess of Port Charles... I mean this is the woman that just yesterday asked if an imperfect person can be a good mother???  HUH???  last I checked we are all imperfect and if she was so delusional that she thought there was a time when she wasnt imperfect too, then I think she needed Shadybrooke a long time ago.

Re: Lucky - ICAM that he needs to support his kids mom because thats whats best for the children and I agree its stupid on her part that she didnt tell anyone Helena controls the medical staff - she never has been the brightest bulb in the box - but what I found icky was the forgive me, forgive me crap that she has been pulling. Lucky JUST found out that she slept with his brother and manipulating him with this woes me I am too fragile to not be forgiven stuff makes me ill to watch.  If she had said I hope someday you will give me the chance to earn your forgiveness that would have been different but she had to know that she was guilting him into saying what she wanted to hear.

Thank you EET for saying exactly what I was thinking.  I was cringing for Lucky in those scenes and so sad for him and what is no more.  He's figured it out.  Too bad Liz is still living in her teenage fantasies.  I really do hope she gets some help so she can raise her three children and Lucky can be free to finally move on!

EET - Try to take the devil horns that you like to see on Liz off for just a few minutes.

I look at her as a rape victim who never really dealt with the rape.  Did she ever get help?  I do not remember ever seeing Liz in counseling.  I only remember her refusing to go to the hospital and Lucky getting Bobbie to check on her.  Liz showered and Bobbie gave her a morning after pill (that part I am not 100% sure about),  The only real help she ever got after that was from a sixteen year old boy.   Lucky was supportive and gave her loads of time to deal with the rape before they went in the romance direction.  She got a bit of closure by getting to face her attacker which I absolutely still love Taggert for.  She never got any professional counselling.  I can be wrong about that but I really don't remember it.  If it happened, it was an afterthought and was not very significant.  It is not unusual for a woman who has been raped to blame themself even years later with loads of professional care.  WHat did they do wrong?  Was it how they dressed?  Should I have been in the park by myself?  What is it about me that brought this rape on?  It is all of those questions that rapists depend on.  It is why some women never report the crime. 

It is very real that years later the victim can still be second guessing themself.  I don't really expect these writers to handle issues like this with very much care but Liz has a history of going for men who are dangerous.  Is she looking for someone she can trust to protect her or is she going for men she feels like she deserves?  Zander, Jason, Nikolas, and Rik are all so far removed from who Lucky is.  I just think Liz feels like she doesn't deserve the respectable Lucky and the house with the picket fence.  She doesn't think she deserves the children even though that is exactly what she wants.  All of her haters say that she places herself on a pedestal but I have never seen her act like that.  It is the men who place her there.  It is also not unusual for men to treat women who have been raped as if they are fragile.  Luke hates that she hurt his son but he remembers finding her scared and broken and he told Helena to back off her.  He included her in his family that Helena needs to back away from.  Is it Liz who acts like she is better than others or is it men who treat her that way?

Carly has always hated her because she was close to Jason at a time when Carly messed up that relationship.  Liz didn't come between them.  Carly did.  Carly was just jealous that another woman had Jason's attention and Jason was super protective of her.  He felt responsible for what happened to Lucky when they thought he was dead and he knew about the rape.  How can Carly even compete with that?  Everytime Carly attempts to be snarky abou Liz, Jason shuts her down.  Carly hates that.

I don't think Sam ever considered Liz to be a threat until Liz and Jason slept together.  Liz wasn't pursuing him.  They were friends.  I always liked that the show stayed true to that relationship.  They always checked back in with one another a few times every year.  Liz went to Jason so she could lick her wounds.  Lucky was her savior and he let her down.  She turned to someone she knew she could trust.  I am sorry but that is how I see that night.

As for Liz begging for Lucky's forgiveness and not making sense by asking him to forgive her somewhere down the line - she is in a mental facility.  Why are we looking for her to make sense?  She is floundering.  She is reaching out for someone to help her and to forgive her.  Lucky is the logical choice but what she really needs is to accept her mistakes and forgive herself.  That is why I want them to show her treatment sessions instead of only showing the endless visitors and the big bad Helena.

It seems to me that now that Liz has pretty much painted her saintly self into a corner of her making, she wants to look down her perkie porcelin nose at Nik, for having the nerve to warm her britches.. All this, while she begs poor Lucky to forgive her for betraying him with his brother.  

Unless I am mistaken, this is the same woman who looked down her nose at Lucky when she was sweating up the sheets with Jason.  Liz not only wouldn't give Lucky the time of day, but bad mouthed him into vbad health to anyone who would listen....that is until; she needed him to be Jakes father.

Helena was right, the cards are stacked against Lucky.  Liz has slept with him, what once she they agreed to try again, and then she jumped up and boinked Nik with practically no shower between them.  I love JJ's portrayal of Lucky, but I cringe at the thought of seeing him shirtless, Greg V. was some serious eye candy, and the imagination could go wild with the two of them.  This Lucky, not so much.

More later but Lizard was helped by bobbie and audrey, not just teen aged lucky.  And I think she did go to rape counseling - I may have confused that with Emily but I thought before Em went to group, Eliesalot was the one that talked her into it.

Heres Liz with Bobbie....bobbie says Audrey is a trained professional....

And saying that this is all post-rape fall out...why didnt we see post rape fall out ever before - its been 15 years or so and in all that time we havent seen one moment where this was an explanation before now.  So with Jason, Lizard is exploring a love "years in the making", but when she does the same type of bad act with Nik, she is a poor rape victim that never got over it.  I have a really hard time buying that.  And if this was post rape reaction, why was she so willing to use her horrific experience in the name of shutting down Rebecca? 

The pedestal stuff...its that she has a laundry list of people she looks down on, mostly women -- many of whom were rivals but also look at the way she talks to pif.

Maybe its not that I see her with horns, but that you are seeing her with rose colored glasses??
