General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Lulu’s at the Star and calls Luke. She tells him that someone is interested in the Star and he’s thrilled for her. Tracy shows up and asks Luke if Anthony or his killer have been found. She’s thrilled that they’re no longer suspects. However, Luke’s worried someone is trying to set them up and pin the murder on them. Luke reminds her that she should be in mourning, but Tracy wants to celebrate their liberation.

Johnny gets to the Star, but Lulu’s not interested if he’s looking for trouble. Johnny says he’s looking for Luke. He thinks his grandfather is dead and he overheard Lacey discussing it. Lulu reassures him that Luke didn’t kill Anthony, but backs off when Johnny questions her. She claims her father isn’t a murderer.

Michael finds Starr crying on the docks. She explains about Tea’s baby. She shares how it brings up memories of Hope and that it hurts. Michael assures her that someday she won’t be crying about it anymore and things will work out. Starr tells him about her talk with Todd and that Sonny was protecting Kate who has DID.

Ewen pays Kate a visit and she apologizes for Connie’s behavior, but he says she wasn’t responsible for what Connie did. He wants to find the cause of why Kate has created the personalities. However, Kate’s more upset about what Connie did that was worst and explains about the car accident.

Carly goes to Jason’s and is shocked when he tells her what happened to Sam and that the baby died. Carly says they need to help each other, but Jason says Sam blames him. He explains about the guys beating up John and Sam wandering off looking for help. Carly says it wasn’t his fault, but Jason claims that Sam thinks it was.

Liz brings Sam flowers from her sisters and offers her condolences. She asks if there’s anything she can do. Sam asks if Liz can bring back her baby and keep him alive. Liz says she understands, since that’s the one thing people asked after Jake died as well. Liz says she saw Jason and that he’s pretty upset as well. She says they shouldn’t go through this alone, which angers Sam.

Liz apologizes for upsetting Sam. She says Jason just wants to be with her to mourn with her and that he seemed genuine. Sam says she begged him to try and be a family.  She was the one who was raped. She needed Jason’s love from the start. Sam says she has to tiptoe around Jason’s feelings. She can’t express how scared, how hurt she was when he looked at them and saw Franco. Liz says it’s not how Jason feels anymore and she believes him. Sam says she doesn’t.

Sam says it’s Jason’s fault, that if John had come back, doctors could have helped the baby. Liz says there’s no way to know that for sure. Sam incredulously asks if Liz is defending Jason, since nothing is ever Jason’s fault. Liz says Jason is a mess right now, but Sam is determined to believe that the baby died because of Jason. She tells Liz to go dry Jason’s tears, to make sure everything is ok. She tells Liz that Jason is all hers and that it’s over.

Liz swears she and Jason are just friends, that he loves Sam. She says Jason is not perfect that he’s made mistakes and wonders if it’s over, why Sam is still holding onto the dragon figurine.

Johnny tells Lulu that he’s the one who wants to buy the Star, but she points out that the last time he was using it to launder money. Johnny says that was all Anthony’s doing. She points out that he owns Vonn’s. Johnny says he got rid of it. He’s done objectifying women, since Carly took him back.

Lulu is shocked that Carly would forgive Johnny for cheating. She figures he has a lot to make up for. Lulu admits that Johnny seems different now that he’s out from under his grandfather. Johnny says he has an idea for legitimate club. Lulu admits she’s been thinking of something similar. Johnny says he has the money and they can go in together. Lulu says she already has a job, but Johnny thinks she wants more out of life. Lulu agrees to the deal, but only if it’s not a scam. Johnny swears it’s above board and they are now partners.

Carly says Jason made many mistakes, but that he isn’t responsible. Jason feels Sam won’t forgive him, something Carly is sure she will. Carly is sure they can work this out and that he needs to make it up to Sam. Jason says Sam won’t listen, but Carly yells at him to keep talking to her until she does.

Carly tells Jason that she and Johnny are back together, which is fine with Jason but he warns that Johnny better treat her right this time. Carly says Sam needs him whether she admits or not.

Kate explains that Connie told Sonny she was responsible, but Ewen doesn’t buy it and thinks Connie could have lied. Kate doesn’t understand why Connie would say she did if she didn’t. Kate agrees to more treatment and jokes that she doesn’t even know what day it is anymore. Ewen tells her that it’s June 12th and she freaks out.

Tracy and Luke are enjoying ribs. Tracy declares a new lease on life. Luke gets sauce on his face, so she wipes it off and then kisses him. He wonders where that came from. She says she liked it the last time and wanted to do it again. Tracy says Luke isn’t always a horrible person, he’s capable of being generous and kind and always helps her. Luke says he cares for her. Tracy says she wants him back.

Luke is surprised and doesn’t think it would look right if they got together so soon after Anthony’s death. Tracy assures him they could be discreet and tells him to move out from Anna’s. She asks if Luke isn’t interested in her. Luke says he is, but doesn’t want to jump the gun and needs time to process. Tracy kisses him again, as Lulu shows up and sees it.

Starr explains to Michael that DID is a coping mechanism. She saw Kate and that it was easier to hate Sonny, but she doesn’t hate Kate. She feels she owes both Sonny and Michael an apology. She was wrong to accuse Sonny. Michael says he was wrong about Johnny. Starr says she hasn’t heard from Johnny about the recording contract. She asks Michael to put everything behind them and be friends, which he agrees to. Starr gets a call from Johnny to meet her.

Johnny tells Starr that this is their new club, for her recording and possible performing. Starr likes it.

Jason gets to the hospital in time for Liz to tell him that Sam has checked herself out.

Kate tells Ewen that she’s late and might be pregnant.

Someone needs to explain to me the appeal of Luke to the point where three women are interested in him. I know there aren't very many men of that age group in town, but really. Three?

Loved the Lulu/Johnny interaction. I'm not a JoLu fan, since I'm still sort of a Lante fan and I sort of like CarJohn, but I like the idea of them in business together.

I hate that these writers are putting Liz in the middle of JaSam. It didn't have to be her, it could have been Carly in those scenes with Sam. It just flames the Liz/Sam fan wars.

Having said that, more goodness from KeMo today. Although I was a little ticked that she didn't take her sisters flowers when she left. That's just rude!

Please don't go down a WTD road with Kate/Connie/Sonny/Johnny. I really don't want to see that.

Being a Sam and Liz fan I disliked those scenes.. I feel like Sam didn't have to be so snappy and Liz should have backed off. It should have been any one else than Liz in there for sure. But I loved everything Sam was saying about Jason.. Also I felt that Sam should have realized the person she was saying it all to had experienced all that.. I agree setting off a Liz and Sam fan base war just sucks..

Must agree about Luke- really I can take crazy Heather. Love Tracy and him but my Anna can do so much better. She is just such a class act!!

I really enjoyed how excited Lulu was with Johnny.. However can still do with out Star and Kate. Less Star and Kate- more Lulu and Liz please!!

As always my Kemo was FABULOUS!!!

Sam probably wasn't thinking of the flowers being a gift from her sisters when she left. I'm sure she was distracted. Also, the flowers--although well-intended--may be a reminder of the baby's death.

I thought the flowers were just another plot point to let us know that was Sams room Jason was going into... You know cause it would be so hard to figure out. Wink

I have never gotten the appeal of Luke on a romantic level, and I'm someone who loved Luke and Laura for years, but then again I don't get the appeal of the show's other 2 main leading men either. All Luke has ever really done to Tracey is to use her for her money and connections. She loved him, and he broke her heart. He threw Anthony Z in her face today when he knows darn well that he's the one who divorced Tracey, that Anthony was blackmailing her into marriage, and he must've forgotten all the unmentionable ladies of the night that he probably hit it with while he was with Lupe last year while still married to Tracey.

I thought KeMo and RH were brilliant in their scene together today, I just wish Liz wouldn't have went to bat for Jason. Of all the people who I figured would defend Jason to Sam, I didn't think Liz would be the very first and while Sam was still in her hospital bed. I figured Carly would be the first forcing Saint Jason's praises on her, followed by Sonny, Michael, Monica, and then any of the rest of PC who think that Jason walks on water. We all know why the writers did it though, to get the fanbases all riled up.

I do not want to hear Starr sing.

A Sam and Liz scene! I see where Sam is coming from with her greif so I get why she was snarky, but I wish Liz would have just shut up about Jason, RH is way too talented to be propping up a character like Jason, I wish we could've seen Liz relate to Sam about them both losing a child and being victims of rape and see them bond. Loved seeing JoLu together, have they had scenes since Dante came along? Loved all things Luke and Tracy, but I don't think Luke is worthy of anyone being in love with him after he killed Jake. I wonder if Jane Elliot chomping down on the corn was improv, that was hilarious. I love her and Tracy!

As for Kate being late.....no. Just no.
Overall today was really good. Thanks Perkie!

OMG, being a die hard Lulu fan, I was in heaven yesterday. Finally, I got to see a glimpse of the old Lulu Spencer back, feisty and fun. loved what Johnny told her about her job at the PCPD, loved that she was sooooo quick to make her decision to work with him and loved how they said it could be a new start for both of them.

I have said several times that I was a Logan and Lulu fan and hated JoLu for that reason. But loving Lulu so much, it made me sick to see how my girl has been totally ruined since paired with Dante. She was not herself anymore and just wanted to be that Stepford wife forbDante which she is not. She is the daughter of Luke Spencer! But I must say the very rare scenes she was allowed to share with Johnny in the past three years have made me change my mind and jumped on the JoLu ship. Johnny and Lulu have so much chemistry and Lulu is so alive and so herself when she is with Johnny.

I hate what CarTini have done to Johnny lately but I am very thankful that they are ready to finally challenge that boredom that Lante is. Lulu deserves better and JMB deserves better also! So I am SO happy about the JoLu scenes yesterday. Dante is going to turn green and will of course try to force Luku out of it but I hope that she will tell him to go to hell!

However, what I am pissed at is that in a post here two days ago, I was saying that at least CarTini seemed to be sparing us the end of the Ford/Jessica storyline as we didn't get a Kate is pregnant storyline. I should just have shut up because BAM here it comes, the total copycat of the Ford/Jess storyline on OLTL.... I am going to be honest, I just want Kate to lose that child as I don't want Johnny to have a kid with Kate and I certainly don't need another Corinthos spawn. This pregnancy storyline is SUCH a lazy and bad idea....

But I am still on cloud 9 because of sparkling Lulu and all those JoLu scenes. Just GIVE ME MORE!

I received so many emails and PM today (yesterday...) about the JoLu scene that I was afraid to be disappointed. I finally just watched GH and it was so GOOD!!!!

My Lulu is back and finally out of the shadow of Dumbte! So feakin good!

Have to go to bed so I will make t short. Verdi, I agree with turning you said about JoLu (I personally HATED Logan and Lulu so I won't agree on that part of your post LOL).

JoLu are pure magic together and I hope she will be Johnny's redemption and that Johnny will allow her to be back alive and kicking as the old feisty and spunky Lulu Spencer.

For all the JoLu scenes yesterday a big THANK YOU to Ron and Frank.

My dreams are going to be sweet. LOL Good night everyone! Love

Why would the writers skip the Sam/Heather and Jason/Liz scenes started at the end of Monday's episode. I think those scenes would have been interesting.

Outrageous. This episode was actively annoying, with the stupid dialogue between Liz and Sam. What was that beyond riling fanbases? Sam and Liz should empathize with the similar experiences of being raped and losing children. Instead, Sam was ugly toward Liz (but she gets a short-pass because of her recent loss) but Liz going on and on inappropriately was completely unnecessary. I am beyond tired of Liz pimping JaSam. Disgusting. JaSam will reunite no matter if Sam blames Jason for her baby's "death" right now, so why is there a need for anyone to pimp them let alone Liz? And I was mostly with Sam regarding Jason, only it rings shallow because she stated she had to "tiptoe" around Jason's feelings? What?! She CHOSE to be hang her entire existence from his left testicle. No one made her live her life as the maid-servant of a mob hitman but her. So, excuse me while I do not appreciate her "clear" view of Jason.

Tracey and Luke's disgusting food-sex, Ethan/Kate drivel and Michael/Starr dryness. ARGH. Johnny acting crazy as ever. Admittedly, I do think Lulu and Johnny have chemistry but he's so despicable and a lost cause, why should I bother investing?

After a decent Monday episode, I could not believe how poor Tuesday was.

To answer your question, JoLu has been allowed to share scenes where they actually talked to each other seven times in the past three years of the Lante nightmare. Seven episodes in three years because TPTB were so scared to jeopardize their Spencer / Corinthos coupling from hell as each time JoLu shared a scene, there was a great buzz on the net. Except Liaison there are the only pairing consistently in the SID Top 10 for years without sharing scenes. Guza threw JoLu under the bus because his beloved wife Meg Bennett had made the decision of the LANTE pairing BEFORE DZ was even cast. carTini threw Johnny under the bus in order to pair Carly and Todd. Too bad the backlash and the fury at them was so big that they had to switch strategy. To keep Johnny and Carly apart, let's throw Lulu in the mix!

I know I am still manipulated but this time I don't care because I got more JoLu yesterday than in the past three years all together. Because of how their chemistry is even bigger because they have both grown up. Because they shine together. Because Lulu can be herself without thinking of how Dumbte will judge her. Because, unlike Dante who laughed at her when she said she wanted to buy the Haunted Star and worked there, Johnny didn't even discuss it and embraced her as a partner immediately. Because Dante will be green and I LOVE IT. Because I got my JoLu back on screen and it is the first time I enjoyed GH in a VERY long time.

Please give me more. Let us have a real triangle with Lulu-Johnny-Dante or Lulu-Johnny-Carly. I am impressed by how big the buzz was on Twitlter for JoLu yesterday. They are fresh and they are both passionate. They were each other's first love... And you never forget your first love!

I don't care about how CarTini have recently destroyed Johnny because the Johnny I know is the guy who risked the death penalty to protect Lulu.

Cannot comment about the rest of the show as I barely watched.

But please spare us the full Jessica / Robert Ford redo. This is pathetic. Johnny first kid should be with Lulu and we certainly not need another Sperminator's spawn.

Sorry I have to do another happy dans, JoLu is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And hotter than ever! TEAM JOLU ALL THE WAY!

Tracy wearing a plastic bib? Yeah right!

As a Liz fan, I want her to stop pimping Jason. He's been a jerk since his head hit that tree.

It was nice to see Johnny smile and not talking to himself.

I don't want to hear Starr sing either. Because she can't. She ain't no Mary Mae.

Sam, so wonderfully written yesterday, returns to the same old Sam today. She's just gotta protect herself against anyone who might steal her man, even though she supposedly sent her man packing yesterday. In the real world, would women who have shared the same kinds of pain really behave this way? Perhaps not all but I don't always want to see the worst of womanhood on my screen.

The appeal of Luke? There is none. I love AG as an actor. I could even love Luke in a story at this point. But what's the infatuation with needing every character paired up romantically? Luke and Anna turning romantic makes my skin crawl. There is no logical reason she'd go there.

We finally get Lulu away from Dumb Dumb. Too bad she's run straight to a rapist/murderer/sociopath. Oh well, it is GH. That is what real women do, right? Redeem Johnny? Well the writers do think we are brain dead so anything is possible.

And the possibility of a who's the baby daddy story is so intriguing. (laugh) It seems this regime hasn't run out of soap cliche! What this show really needed was ANOTHER female character wondering if her killer boyfriend or her rapist impregnated her. I always said this regime was better than Wolf. But now they are recycling his garbage!

Wishing I could take back my compliments about the previous two shows. Clearly, this regime hasn't turned over a new leaf.

While I understand those who don't see the appeal of Luke, but I have to say I like the story. Anthony Geary has chemistry with both women.

So Kate might be pregnant? That's the thing they come up with now? Plot-driven mess! I don't need a storyline like this specially after all this baby drama.

This was actually the first time I enjoyed Starr and Michael together. Not a big fan but I didn't mind their scenes.

I liked the JoLu scenes a lot. All the more reason that it hurts me what the writers did with Johnny. Anyway I'm happy to finally see Lulu without her husband.

These Sam/Liz scenes ... I know that they want to go for this shipping war to keep people talking and everything but the way it's done doesn't do them any favors. Jason appears to be an ass right now who hasn't deserved either one of these women. And we all know that Liason is just a tease ... that they going for this friendship thing and there really isn't happening anything romantic.
And this makes these scenes between Sam and Liz so unnecessary. Perkie, you're right - Carly could have easily be the one talking to Sam. It shouldn't have been Liz. There is too much history on both sides. These two women really should stay out of each others personal life.

Have always loved Johnny & Lulu so I was ecstatic. I would enjoy seeing Lulu vs Carly again. When I heard Johnny mention singing at the new club and he called Starr I said, OH SHIT!

Exactly! She chose to live her life that way, and now I'm supposed to feel bad for her that her constant kowtowing to Jason blew up in her face? And thanks for making me choke on my coffee!

I should just ignore this but.....how can you go there? Liz flat out told Sam that Jason loves Sam, and then pimped the hell out of Jason and Jasam being there for eachother. To top it off, she was kind and compassionate while Sam was bitchy and rude.

I couldn't believe Sam had the nerve when Liz asked if there was something she could do for her, and Sam rudely asked if Liz could bring her baby back. You know what Sam? No, Liz can't bring back YOUR baby, but you could have brought back HER baby when Jake was kidnapped by Maureen. At that point, Liz should have reminded Sam of her actions during her supposed "mental breakdowm" and walked out. Of course, Sam would have been confused because she was never written as having a mental breakdown, but whatever, right?

Well, Sam's hurting because of her loss and we know how she behaves when she's like that, so I guess it's a good thing Ric's in LA and Alexis isn't currently married.

What's worst is that in order for her to be pregnant, JOhnny would have had to be unprotected. So, not only did he actually go all the way when all he needed to do was pretend, but he supposedly wasn't protected either?

I can fanwank that Sonny and Kate wouldn't use protection because they were in a relationship but that's not real either since I'm sure Sonny doesn't want any more kids and would have protected himself and Kate, as a big business woman who never seemed all that motherly, would have been protected as well.

WTD stories only work some of the time, not all the time. They shouldn't go to that well for everyone. I think if she is pregnant they should be brave and have her have an abortion.

I co-sign your post #21 JS3557!

LOL EET, are we watching the same show?? For the past month or so, we've seen Liz pimping JaSam which is the most ridiculous thing they could have Liz do, if she wanted Jason, she would have never been taking Sam's side which is what Liz has been doing this entire time. She would've taken the opportunity to trash Sam to Jason instead and I've never seen her do that. I know you hate Liz, but ummm I think you're seeing something that isn't there, even RH stated in an interview that Liz has no romantic interest in Jason, and it's all strictly friendship. Maybe you think she wants to go to his PH to boink him because their chemistry is 10x more than JaSam will ever have. And Jason is a grown douche, even if Liz was after him, he can turn her down.

I thought it was nice of Liz to go see Sam, I'm choosing to overlook how bitchy Sam was because of thee circumstances, but a lot of the people on twitter weren't so nice about how she was with Liz.

See, I was going to give Sam a pass but, boy, she is one of the least sympathetic characters in soaps. We also know when she's hurt, she'll hire goons to draw guns on a mother, preschooler and toddler. Only when Sam's hurt she'll see Jason for who he is but when she's over it, she'll prop herself on his couch with cheap takeout and her rose-colored glasses. And I get hearty laughs of all of the close-ups of the cheap Chinese restaurant party favors to represent JaSam's "love."

@js3557: Sorry my earlier post made you choke on your coffee! I am really holding back regarding Sam because Jason has been worse and Sam believes she was raped and baby is dead. I was rather appalled about her reaction to Liz's considerate and benign, "is there anything I can do for you?" Sam asking her if she could bring her baby back was outrageous, especially considering Jake is dead. Now, Liz should have walked away versus defend Jason. Just phooey! Remembering those scenes makes he want to spit out my coffee!!!

A couple of points that I just don't agree with on this show or from the new regime.

Point 1: Sam's baby. Sam is totally right when she says that if Jason didnt have John kidnapped and beaten she would have been in the hospital. 100% true. The baby was delivered and they would have been at the hospital because at the time, the child was alive. Yes, according to what she knows the child had a disease so it "could" have died at the hospital or en route.

BUT now, lets move forward to the reveal that Tea has Sam's baby. Again, Jason's fault. Same scenario. If Jason hadn't had John picked up and beaten, Sam would have been in the hospital and out of reach of Heather. Simple fact.

If the writers are going to truly write this story and make Sam a true female heroine or role model, they will have her tell Jason that life doesn't revolve around him or Sonny. That because of his selfish actions/self-serving actions, she can not be with him. Even when the child is returned because no matter how you look at it, Jason is just as guilty in this as Todd is for switching the kids.

POINT 2: Starr and her easily forgiving the death of her child and the child's dad. This story should be written that Starr could understand the condition that Kate is suffering from because of her aunt and cousin, but that she should demand that Kate still pay. For months, Starr has cried and demanded action to bring the killers to justice. Then in one clean conversation with her father she's like "oh. OK" I don't care what the familiar history is with this condition but neither Starr's aunt Vicki or cousin Jessica KILLED INNOCENT PEOPLE when in their alternate states.

In this case, Starr should be demanding that Kate be locked up. Yes, at trial Kate could walk free (not a true depiction of INSANITY pleas) but at least Starr fought til the end to make sure justice was brought for the loss of life.

But it wont happen. Now Starr, an 18-19 year old, is a lounge singer in a bar in upstate New York owned by a mobster. And she is a relative UNKNOWN singer to HEADLINE a new club/bar?!!!

POINT 3: Defending Jason or Sonny. The writers write women like they are fools. Liz walking into Sam's room to defend Jason was ridiculous. Sam should have been screaming for Liz to mind her own business. I love the character of Sam but it would have been more realistic if they just had Liz go into the room and chat with Sam about losing a child and how her own doubts about Jason made it more about her dealing with her grief with family and friends. This defending Jason or even Sonny by Kate or Carly or even Robin when she was alive is a ridiculous depiction of idiotic women who overlook the true nature of these men and that they are criminals, killers and ego-maniacs. NOT SEXY.

POINT 4: Kate pregnant?!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, this is the Jess/Tess story all over again!!! Does this new regime have any new ideas?!!! Seriously!!! WHere are the critics on this one? Kate will discover she is pregnant and then in the mirror we will see Connie saying the child is mine and I will take it back and then there will be the exact story as before on OLTL.

POINT 5: OK, how many offspring on this show are the products of killers: Alexis' 2 daughters Molly and Kristina and even Sam since Alexis is a Casadine. All of Carly's kids except Joycelyn. Starr is because of Todd. Dante. Now Kate's unborn spawn. Sam's child... whichever daddy it turns out to be. Tea's dead child because I believe nuTodd killed and got away with it.

Women in Port Charles. Start traveling out of town for sperm to have babies. Better gene pools.

LOL. Love this! but unfortunately, the majority of women in PC would need their killer boyfriend's permission to leave town. And the minute their controlling (oops, I mean protective) boyfriends were not by their side, the women would most certainly be raped or victimized in some other way. The rape would then cause a mob war and who's the baby daddy drama but we'd never see the woman's side of the story. The baby, because of all the trauma, would contract DID in utero. Heather would discover that the baby is actually twins and devise a way to sell them After months of struggle, at least one of the babies dies in an explosion or car accident. They are, after all, the leading causes of death in Port Charles. The other, the lucky survivor is taken to a celebration at the Haunted Star where Starr is singing. The baby's first words are "please make it stop". The baby then dies from the terrible terror and neglect. Close ups of Sonny and Jason tearing up. Another close up of Todd arching his eyebrows. Yes, he caused it all. Flashback to his paying Starr to use her singing voice as a murder weapon. His revenge is complete.

In regards to Pt 1 - One small note - SAM chose to leave the confines of the warm cozy penthouse and head over to the hotel stuck in the middle of the woods during the height of her pregnancy. Also if Sam would have done the one thing her husband asked her and stay away from McBain maybe he would not have felt it necessary to have thugs beat him up.

Moral of the story when your husband offers you the penthouse take it and send HIM to the sleaze bag motel

I was not sure what to expect when I signed in today but it was nice to see that overall everyone saw the same thing I did with the Liz/Sam scenes.

Soapbaby you slayed me...and the mental image of her hanging from the left one is priceless

Well EET in Liz' defense would she have the right I mean Sam practically handed Jason on a silver platter to her.

I am ok if I never go another day without the image of Tracy sticking her tongue down Luke's throat. Even hubby commented

Love Ya JS3557

I just don't think you can blame Sam for that whole conversation. She was snarky but Liz was totally inappropriate. It is one of those scenes I choose to forget happen. It was obviously there to lead up to the scene we see today that was on the promo.. IMHO it is just a fan base war that doesn't need to be riled. I also saw that the reaction was pretty even on twitter and message boards. Unless of course you went to a Jasam or Liason only sight..

Sam wasn't at the height of her pregnancy, she delivered unexpectedly early. And who's to say the penthouse would've been any safer, in theory the motel should have been safer but apparently this is the only hotel on the planet without any staff (really dumb writing). I can't get behind the concept that Sam should have stayed with the man who was pressuring her to give up her child so she could be in "a cozy warm penthouse" while her husband ran around ordering cops beaten to a bloody pulp for the crime of speaking to his wife. Sam's supposed to stay with a man who rejected both her and her child after she was raped AND only speak to those he allows? Give me a break. Sam's only real mistake was marrying that guy in the first place. I used to be a fan of this couple but I cheered when she told him off. Jason's starting to make Sonny look like a saint and he has even more women running around excusing his nonsense than Sonny ever did. The whole thing is absurd.

Liz should just send another nurse to Sam's room. Sam doesn't deserve personal attention. How ungrateful? Her comments to Liz about Liz having an open field prove to me that she has never been confident in Jason and she knows him less than Epiphany. How long before she waves her "friendship" with Mcbain in Jason's face? We All know how Sam reacts when she is rejected and Jason has rejected her. Ste wanted him to fall in line and get over himself but he needed time and wasn't willing to lie. She ran away from home and wanted him to beg her back. He didn't. She will retaliate. It is coming.
