HomeTVGeneral HospitalGeneral Hospital: Perkie’s Observations Perkie April 11, 2012 38 Comments Kate’s surprised to see CarJohn out in public. Sonny complains about Johnny framing him and using Carly against him. Kate says Carly only cares about herself and not to let it get under Sonny’s skin. Sonny doesn’t understand why Carly is doing this to Michael, because he’s stuck between his parents. Johnny offers to talk to Michael. Carly says she’s entitled to her own life and Michael will come around. Johnny says he doesn’t want to cause problems, but Carly has helped pull him out of his darkness. It’s not about Sonny. Johnny wonders why Carly is so certain he didn’t frame Sonny. Carly says she knows him, and what kind of person he is. She’s starting to care and isn’t going anywhere. Ewen fills out commitment papers for Kate. Matt distracts Ewen with talk of a patient, needing a psych consult, while Spinelli rummages through Ewen’s office. He finds the commitment papers, where he reads the words Crimson Magazine. He assumes Ewen wants to commit Maxie. Spinelli confronts Ewen and accuses him of killing Lisa, then turning on Maxie. Ewen says Maxie isn’t his patient. She’s not who the papers are for. Luke is shocked to see Heather out and about. She reassures him that she’s better now and has been released to Steve. Luke says she isn’t welcome. He’s not sympathetic to her because he remembers everything she did. Luke tries to call Steve, but Heather takes his phone away. She says she just wants to talk for a minute. Luke doesn’t want to revisit old times. Heather realizes someone else is in the suite and calls out. Anna comes out of the other room and Luke introduces them. Olivia’s concerned at Heather’s disappearance. Steve assures her that his mother wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize her release. Olivia says he’s responsible for everything Heather does. He needs to find her before she causes damage. Olivia asks who or where Heather would go. Steve said she had a fixation with Luke. Carly confronts Kate about the changing of her locks. The two snipe at each other. Carly feels Kate has something to hide, like the gun. Kate says she’ll have Carly arrested if she breaks into her office again. Sonny says Johnny put the gun there. Johnny says the DA thinks Sonny did, since the trial starts tomorrow. Carly asks what Kate is hiding from Sonny. Kate says Carly humiliated Michael by sleeping with everything that moves. Carly tells Kate to meet her outside and calls her Connie. She accuses her of walking away from her family, because she’s a soulless lying bitch. Sonny tells Johnny to control his woman. Johnny says he shouldn’t talk. Sonny tells Johnny not to lie again and say that Kate came to him for sex. Kate wants them to leave. Sonny tells her to get the car because he wants a word with Johnny. Carly walks away, so Sonny tells Johnny that he’ll beat the charges against him. Then he’ll come after Johnny. He doesn’t want to kill Johnny, just humiliate him and make him suffer so he’ll lose everything. Then Carly will dump him. Johnny warns him that he’ll push back and that Sonny has more to lose than he thinks. Olivia stops by to complain to Kate that she came onto Steve, since Kate hasn’t acted like that since she was a teenager. Kate is surprised at the accusation. When Sonny comes back for Kate, Olivia offers her best wishes for his trial and reminds him not to let Johnny get away with anything. Heather wonders why Anna is staying with Luke. She wants to get reacquainted with him and Anna would be in the way. Luke says Heather was released from Ferncliff. Anna wonders if it was prematurely. Heather swears she’s fully recovered. She’s been given a second chance and wants to show Luke the kind of woman she really is. Heather reaches into her purse. Luke assumes she has a gun and throws himself on Anna. Turns out it was a letter that Heather wrote to remind him of what they shared. Luke says they don’t’ share anything. Heather wants them to see where this will go. However, Luke isn’t interested. Steve shows up. She tells his mother that she can’t disappear on him. Luke says Steve should have warned people. Heather tells Luke to read the letter with an open mind and leaves with Steven. Anna’s surprised that Luke would have taken a bullet for her. She’s not thrilled with Luke’s taste in women. He swears it’s all in Heather’s head. Anna thinks Heather wants to make amends and that she’s harmless. Luke thinks differently and that madness never gets better. Luke explains his past with Heather and how she tried to kill Skye. Matt asks if Spinelli actually saw Maxie’s name on the papers. Spin realizes that it only said Crimson and assumed Maxie. He realizes its Kate. Spin leaves Jason a message to talk about Kate’s issues. Matt talks to Ewen about Maxie’s determination to be punished. Heather apologizes to Steve, saying she wanted to see an old friend. Steve says she and Luke will not be together. Heather reassures him that she wishes all the best for Luke and Anna. Johnny and Carly make love, as do Kate and Sonny. Connie emerges after and calls Johnny. She lets him know the offer to bed her still stands. Johnny says no, but Connie isn’t taking no for an answer. 38 Responses Perkie April 11, 2012 I`m still not remembering Heather marrying Edward, but thanks to the flashback, I am remembering the Skye part of the story and how HEather killed the cop and left him in the lakehouse. Love everything Anna and how level headed she was in the face of crazy. If connie is the type of person who runs around shooting out people`s tires, why doesn`t she just kill Sonny herself. I fully expected Connie to come out while Carly was yelling and I was actually looking forward to that. I don`t think Connie needs to put that lipstick on for us to know she`s changed into Connie. Her look of revulsion when she sees Sonny is enough to make me realize she`s changed. I get quite a giggle out of that look. Is Steven supposed to sit at home all day and babysit Heather. ISn`t that going to cut into his doctoring time. Bad editing today, with Olivia being at Steven`s than running into kate at the restaurant than back at Steven`s in time for him to bring HEather home.

The lipstick thing is silly. The change in personality/acting choices is enough alone to notice when Kate changes into Connie.

Log in to Reply NY2477 April 11, 2012 Posted under a DOOL article but probably more GH focused…I JUST WANT A GOOD SOAP!!! When GL and ATWT went off the air, I went to OLTL and loved it! It was a classic soap with the right focus on the new, veterans and pacing. My first option was to go to DOOL since I have never been a GH fan. DOOL has not drawn me in…Carrie and Austin have been particularly boring and had to check this site to see if Matthew Ashford had even returned since he was never seen. The show isn’t bad just not exciting and not must see on a daily basis. Not surprised by the changes just the fact that they acted so quickly when they let the old writing regime last so long. I know Sarah Brown is a great actress…was even a fan on ATWT but she made me flinch on DOOL. What I like on GH are the OLTL actors and the probably under used characters of Steve, Olivia, Tracey, Elizabeth and Kate not the Sonny’s and Jason’s and others that GH relied on the past few years. Love Laura Wright (huge GL and Loving/The City fan) but bring back Bobbie and keep her away from Sonny, etc. I have no interest in the mob story. They also need to find some humor somewhere. Where is GH’s version of Roxie or something like that. A soap should take us full cirlce…sometimes it is all drama but mostly show the lives that we like to follow under different scenarios, every day. I’m thrilled to see Robin Mattson as Heather as I am a fan as far back as her turn as Hope on Gl…yes, I am that old! Also, Finola Hughes is great with any one she is with. Bring in Kassie De Pavia and mix the pot up and create a diverse interesting, captivating DAILY drama. Make it exciting, make it bright and make me want to watch every day!!! I hope Frank and Ron can work their magic…not sold yet but still watching…I want to love a soap again!!! Log in to Reply Carol2 April 11, 2012 I’d love to see Blair again, I don’t think it will happen though. GH should bring Matt back as Tom Hardy. Dump Steve. Log in to Reply cape105 April 11, 2012 Heather’s obsession with Luke is stupid but the fact that she did not know Anna by face was dead on. They never knew each other during Anna’a run. Heather may have known about Anna and Robert by reading about there heroics through the newspapers. Log in to Reply The_Moustache April 11, 2012 i hope Ron & Frank get Matt Ashford to reprise his One Life to Live role of serial killer Dr. Stephen Haver!!! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 April 11, 2012 I LOVED the look on Luke’s face when he saw Heather. I especially enjoyed Anna in these scenes. I think Heather is letting her motive on way too early … and she certainly doesn’t look sane to me. If she handled herself like this in a mental institution I have to ask myself how could she have been released in the first place??? Enjoyed the part where Spinelli and Matt suspected Ewen to be the killer of Lisa Niles. And I liked that Spinelli found out that Kate is Ewen’s patient. I didn’t enjoy the Carly and Kate confrontation to be honest. Of course I thought that Connie would make an appearance there … but either way, it was just unnecessary and seemed beneath Carly and Kate to go off on each other like this in a public place. And I agree, Kelly Sullivan is a good enough actress … she doesn’t need a red lipstick or get through her hair to let us know that she transformed into Connie. @NY2477: GH’s fun character used to be Diane … lately especially in her scenes with Alexis. And then there is Max, there is Alice and there is Coleman. GH has enough funny guys for some comic relief that isn’t too campy. Log in to Reply mipeony April 11, 2012 Matt and Spinelli acting stupid was just… stupid. Was that supposed to be the comic relief of the episode or something? Now I love me some crazy Heather, but GH already has Anthony, Kate, Sonny, and Maxie…. do we really need more crazy? Granted, Heather’s more interesting to me than the other 4. How much more crazy can one show take? I’m so sick of Sonny threatening Johnny and bitching about how smug Johnny is, perhaps the aging mobster ought to take a good long look in the mirror. I don’t even like Johnny all that much, but I’m wishing that once, Johnny would win one over Sonny…. but we all know that won’t happen because Sonny and Jason still can’t lose. Olivia and Sonny need to just STHU. I’m also tired of seeing Kate and Carly scream at one another…. honestly, it was nice once or twice, but that was enough also. Besides the Luke/Anna/Heather stuff today just seemed like a big old steaming pile of deja vu to me.

Log in to Reply GHvetfan April 11, 2012 Because this show has so many insane characters, Anna just stands right out with her level headed sane approach. Why must they waste her on Luke?

I don’t think Heather will be around long enough for any big story about this. Don’t waste her on this pig who bragged about killing a child. Log in to Reply BellaDonna April 11, 2012 I will be a Connie FF if she performs a public service and kills both Cujo Carly and Oblivious Olivia. Then someone can ship her off to Ferncliff, and with Sonny locked away in Pentonville, all will be right in the world of Port Charles once again. Or at least more right than it’s been for the past 15 years or so. I wonder if Olivia realizes how stupid and hypocritical she comes off when on the one hand, she’s lecturing Steve about what a badbad person Heather is, and even if she is his mother, she’s not entirely deserving of the second chance he wants to give her, while on the other hand she follows Dante around, lecturing him on what a good person Sonny is, despite the evidence to the contrary, and that he owes it to Sonny to give him a chance because dammit, Sonny is his father! Agree that it was unlike Kate to go off and make a scene in a public place, that’s more Connie’s style. But underneath the veneer, Carly is still the same trashy loudmouth she’s always been, and that was right in character. Log in to Reply p3wong April 11, 2012 I think Jason Thompson has spoiled GH for me – I really miss Patrick when I don’t see him every day. I like Anna, and McBain and Connie/Kate are growing on me, but the rest of the show isn’t doing much for me. :S Log in to Reply robertscorpio April 11, 2012 [quote=Perkie] Bad editing today, with Olivia being at Steven`s than running into kate at the restaurant than back at Steven`s in time for him to bring HEather home.[/quote] Perkie I think Olivia and Steve came to the Metro Court together. While he was getting his mother from Lukes room, she probably went to check on things upstairs at the restaurant.

I don’t see how this new writing team is really trying to save GH. Honestly. Everything that has been leading to GH downfall for the last couple of years is now on GH 24/7 repeating the same lines. Same JaSam angst and lines. Carly v Kate for the 1,000,000 time. Aside for the Heather/Luke/Anna scenes. GH is super annoying. I did LOVE when Ewen said Spinelli and Matt were idiots. What happened to Matt being into Liz so hard? Now he loves Maxie again? Log in to Reply sweetiepie April 11, 2012 I keep wondering why Kate doesn’t just kill Sonny as well. I don’t quite get her reasoning for wanting to sleep with Johnny to get back at Sonny. It does not make sense, especially when Sonny would just kill Johnny on the spot. By the way,soap Gods please let it come out that Sonny really did shoot out Anthony’s tires. He is walking around accusing Johnny, well after all of his posturing, he is telling every one and anyone in earshot that Johnny did it to frame him. Too bad Johnny isn’t as obsessed with Sonny as Sonny is with him. Also too bad that they have turned Papa Crazy into a wuss, who is afraid of Sonny. Log in to Reply sassysdreams April 11, 2012 Best part of the hour for me were the Luke/Anna/Heather scenes!! Loving AG and FH!!! Drama and comedy all at the same time and all three actors were outstanding!! Log in to Reply maxsmom April 11, 2012 Maybe I am being protective of Johnny because I love him but he and Carly make less sense in each passing episode…unless Johnny is trying to get under Sonny’s skin and is in fact using Carly. His statement that Michael would understand because they get along was flat out stupid, did keeping the secret that Dante was an undercover cop smooth his relationship with Dante’s mother. He hated Sonny and Claudia and that’s back when she was his sister. Remember how fast Michael turned on Jax in favor of Sonny, boys dont want their moms with anyone but their dads and some dont even want that, hello Oedipus. I am speaking in generalities of course. This would also be Sonny’s 2nd ex and with Kate sniffing around as ex #3, it makes Johnny seem as obsessed with Sonny as Sonny is with him. Send Johnny to see Maxie to convince her to end her ridic storyline and make him suitor #3 for her affections. JoMax affects Johnny’s ex and Maxie’s best friend Lulu who always thought there was something btwn them, it affects Maxie’s other friend Sam in dating her husband’s boss’s rival, it affects Spinelli in having Maxie choose the bad boy again and now that Matt realizes he loves her he loses her. As for Carly, she needs a new job, mothering is not for her. She sent her son away from Sonny only to get involved with Johnny. Jossyln is growing up without a father in part due to Sonny but Johnny is okay? Heather making a beeline for Luke tells me that Robin Mattson’s stint is going to be a short one. Log in to Reply LuluFF April 11, 2012 Maxsmom..i agree with most of your post except for the part about Johnny & Maxi.The ONLY woman who johnny belongs with is Lulu and NOBODY else. Log in to Reply sweetiepie April 11, 2012 Laura Wright has chemistry with Branden Barash, that is the reason behind the pairing. She has no chemistry romantically with Maurice Benard who is about 6 inches shorter than she is, Ingo is gone and they were good together. Luke is her Uncle, Jason does not want to sleep with her, there are not a lot of options here. Basically, Carly has the “screaming hot thigh sweats” (credit given to Carla, on Cheers) for Johnny, plain and simple. Sonny on the other hand, thinks the world revolves around him, and him alone so of course he sees this as Johnny using Carly to get next to him. Johnny, on the other hand just wants Carly.

I also believe he was brought on for Lulu and the relationship felt forced, Starr and Michael are molasses by comparison. I thought Lulu jumped into Johnny with both feet too soon after jumping in with both feet with Logan and in fact I disagree with a lot of the criticism toward Lulu regarding turning in Michael as disloyalty because I agreed with her and Dante’s decision. There was more time btwn Johnny and Dante but it felt like Dante was brought on for Lulu, once again felt forced and once again there were both of Lulu’s feet. I like Lulu solo but the character has been written to lose herself in relationships and I’d like to see her start fresh with someone new.

Log in to Reply Madithusa April 12, 2012 LuluFF, I am a die hard JoLu fan, trust me but I can’t honestly say that LW and BB have no chem… Johnny and Carly are hot together. But because I just think BB has chem with almost every female (and male!) on canvas… And LW has chem with a lot of male actors of the show (except Shawn, Sonny and Jason…). I will always find that JoLu had a fantastic chemistry and that’s why BB was given a contract when he was supposed to be only 4 months on GH and just be a small bump to Lulu and Logan. JoLu clicked immediately to me and I am so mad that they cannot even share a scene because TPTB is so afraid that it would ruin Lante (like when they did share some scenes 16 months ago and the JoLu support was suddenly everywhere… BTW, JoLu has not left the SID Top 10 since!). I so hope that one day Lulu will finally be free of Dante instead of making Lante the new John and Natalie when the real Lulu Spencer would NEVER be a cop and would be more like Ethan and her Dad. CarTini is not being fair to the Spencer genes, they are just repackaging stories they used on OLTL to try to artificially keep Lulu out of any other men’s orbit. I love KS. I loved the Johnny/Maxie friendship and that they never went beyond that three kisses. But I always thought that Maxie and Johnny were too self destructive to be together. They are good as friends and certainly not as a couple. And now that KS is gone, I don’t even see the point as the new Maxie have less layers than before and less depth and I don’t see Johnny one minute with this superficial Maxie (nothing against JL who is really doing a good job and that I loved having a glimpse of in the movie The Artist). So as long as we cannot get JoLu back, BB is paired with a lead of GH like LW and their characters are hot together, I will accept it… as long as it keeps Johnny on my screen and I can get JoLu back one day… Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 April 14, 2012 Been that kind of week…late nights at my sewing machine…PC at my side…and no, I haven’t stitched my hand to the fabric…not yet… Knowing that BA has a background in musical theatre, I totally appreciated the duet with the prop tree just before he had Spinelli pirouette into Ewan’s office. Another unlocked door! And egads! Private paper work out in the open. Too transparent. :~ The timing of his arrival at the hub, brandishing the commitment papers was pretty good, owing to the fact that he had two other comic foils to work off of. I almost wished that he could have sailed from the top of the stairs for a grander entrance, but one can’t have everything. I had a gut feeling Ewan wasn’t the killer and NB sold the disgust and exasperation at their accusations quite well. How he and JC didn’t laugh outright at BA rising on his toes to look him in the eyes, I’ll never know. As for commiting Maxie? False alarm. And the other name that sprang to Spinelli’s mind? Well he’s gotta call Stone Cold about that… Each sentence starter from her has a stop sign response from him. “…glad to see you haven’t forgotten me…” No chance of that.” “…my standing here is a gift.” “That’s not the word I would’ve chosen.” Heather is nothing if not tenacious in her attempts to pick up from where she left off, never mind the last time she was with Luke she was being toted off to what my dad refered to as the funny farm. There were some laugh inducing moments. Anna’s cautious introduction and spot on first impression: “Heather was released from Ferncliff…” “…a little premature, you think?” The reach for the letter resulting in Luke yelping “Gun!” and tackling our super spy while a bewildered Heather gapes. “You really thought I was gonna shoot her?” “…crossed my mind.” The dry, matter of fact observation about his taste in women: “…I thought Tracy…was bad enough…” As with JE and BW, AG, FH, and RM demonstrate what veteran talent brings to the canvas. I even founf myself feeling a bit sorry for Heather, wanting someone who will never care for her… At least Steve had the good sense to call the Q’s to be on the look out for his mother. I would not put him or Olivia in charge of babysitting a potted plant. And I’d not listen to Liv’s hypocritical drivel about Heather, when she’s gone and done the same apologist turn about her son’s mob boss father… All I’ll say about the bully and John is that it was a lot of the same old, same old about “using a woman to get to me.” All about him as per usual. Describing John as a “…smug b*****d…”? Excuse me? A*****e take a look in the mirror. … It was sweet how John offers to pull back and withdraw from their relationship: “…If you’re about to do the noble thing and walk away… don’t.” “I’m starting to care for you. A lot.” I’m thinking this pairing could work for a certain amount of time, “…For the record, I’m starting to care about you, too.”, but there’s that pesky alter that could derail this couple. Witness the phone call John gets from “Connie” while watching his lover sleep. You can see he’s thinking about her offer. And he’s torn when he looks over at the woman in his bed… I almost wished Kate (with or without “Connie” in control), would have reeled back and landed a nice upper cut on Carly. Maybe they can start up their own reality series, “Mob Molls of PC”. But I digress. These are the scenes where Carly so reminds me of a female version of the bully. I think it has to do with LW’s take on the character along with her physical stature. Personally, I couldn’t see TB’s Carly as so “unattractive” and “street”. SJB’s could have gone either way, but I think she’d lean toward LW’s portrayal. KSul for the most part came off stronger here than than the last time these two were in each others faces at the New Year’s Eve shindig. As for the alter coming out before?, during?, well, definitely after bedding down with the bully? The lipstick application is overused at this point. We don’t need the reminder. And note to MB (or whoever advises you about stuff like this). No disrespect intended, but could you please dishevel your hair a little bit? It would be more realistic and make me believe your alter ego and Kate actually engaged in a pleasant, physical encounter. But that’s me… Be back again…sometime this weekend…enjoy yours, all… Swan! 0:) Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
