General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Sonny tells John to go back to Llanview now, since he had nothing to do with Teresa’s death. Kristina, Trey and the crew show up as John’s leaving, wanting to film there. Sonny wants no part of the show. He  isn’t happy to be introduced to Trey. Sonny drags Trey into the living room to threaten him.

Kristina bangs on the door as Sonny warns Trey that the filming is over. If Trey pushes him, he’ll end up in pieces on the floor. Trey says if Sonny kicks him out, Kristina will cut all ties to her father. Sonny lets the crew in and offers everyone cookies. Sonny gushes about how wonderful and intelligent Kristina is. She wonders when he suddenly decided to care.

Ewen’s desperate to find out what happened to the baby, so Kate continues her story. She went to her priest who told her it was a sin to abort the baby, even if it was a product of rape. She couldn’t tell Sonny the truth, because he’d retaliate. She begs God’s forgiveness. Ewen asks why she needs it. Kate says she told her parents she had to start school early, left and went to a boarding school until the baby was born.

Johnny calls Lulu, looking for the key to the back room. She tells him about Dante being angry with their new venture. He asks if she wants out. Lulu wants to be a part of the nightclub.

Anna stops the kissing and immediately declares that she has work to do and heads to her room. Luke heads over to Lulu’s, to tell her about his relationship complications. She tells him about being half owner of the Star and Dante being angry about it. Luke says he understands how Dante feels, but Lulu claims he’s always telling her to trust her instincts. She asks about him kissing Tracy. Luke admits that he just kissed Anna.

Lulu says she thought they were just friends and that he was helping Anna after Robin died. Luke says he’s confused. Anna has helped him too, especially when Ronnie had Lulu. It isn’t really easy with Anna. Lulu asks if it’s the same with Tracy. Luke says Tracy wants him back, but that they shouldn’t until the cloud of Anthony is over. Lulu wonders if Luke really thinks it’s too soon with Tracy or if he really wants to be with Anna.

Lulu wonders if it’s a good idea for Luke to get involved with Anna, considering she’s the new commissioner. He asks what’s so special about her. Luke says Anna is smart. Lulu reminds him that he hasn’t told her the truth about Anthony or Ethan not being Robert’s son. Luke agrees that it’s a terrible idea for them to get involved.

John stops by Anna’s to say goodbye. He got answers, but they weren’t the ones he was looking for. He tells her what Sonny told him. Anna wonders if Sonny is telling the truth. John believes that he is. John’s angry that he’s been chasing the wrong guy all these years. Anna says he did the best he could. John thanks her for being the voice of reason. Anna says she doesn’t follow it herself, having kissed Luke.

Anna swears she and Luke are just platonic friends. However, John is incredulous. He asks what happened after. Anna says she ran and hid in her room and calls herself a coward. She doesn’t know how she’ll face him. John wonders what the problem is. Anna says she’s not the only woman Luke kissed today and explains about Tracy.

John says Tracy scares him. He asks what Anna wants. Anna says her job is hard enough without the complications of getting involved with Luke, who’s also her ex’s best friend. John hugs Anna goodbye. Luke arrives as John is leaving.

Dante stops by the Star to see Johnny. Johnny swears the venture is legit. However, Dante doesn’t want Lulu involved. He doesn’t want her caught in the middle, when he arrests Johnny for murdering his grandfather. Johnny says to knock on Tracy’s door for that. He didn’t cause the accident. Dante says Sonny is innocent, but Johnny says Kate isn’t. Dante’s surprised to hear Johnny point the finger at Kate. He says there is no evidence. Johnny reminds him that Kate attacked Ewen. He knows Kate confessed to her lawyer and Sonny is keeping it quiet. Before Dante leaves, he warns Johnny that he’ll be watching him. If Johnny takes one misstep, Dante will take him down.

Ewen asks Kate if she had the baby and what she did with him. Kate said she got rid of him and explains that she was in labor for hours. She gave birth alone in the boarding house and felt nothing when she saw him. Kate was angry that the baby was a reminder of what happened to her and what she’d lost. She left him behind and never went back. It was like he never existed. Ewen realizes that at that moment Connie ceased to exist as well.

Kate says she left, became Kate Howard and went to Princeton. It was like it never happened and she just forgot. Ewen says she knows the truth now and she can begin to heal, because it means Connie is gone. She doesn’t need to live two separate lives. Kate agrees, but realizes she needs to live with what Connie did.

Trey wants Sonny to explain what he did to get Kristina into Yale. Sonny says he thought she was waitlisted because of him and he made some calls. He claims he didn’t bully her in or threaten anyone. He made a contribution to the library fund. Sonny says he would do anything for his kids and that he did nothing illegal.

Trey asks who John was. Sonny explains and says he was giving John information on his case. Trey asks about Kate, who was charged with assault and is in a mental institute. Sonny cuts things short for the day.

Trey and the crew leave. Kristina warns Sonny that playing nice won’t make her call the whole thing off. Sonny says he sees himself in her, more than his other kids and that she ends up hurting herself. He tells her that she’s making a mistake if she believes Trey cares about her.

Anna says it was a mistake to get involved and she doesn’t want things to be awkward. Luke agrees, saying he wants them to just be friends. Then they grab each other and start kissing again.

Dante gets home and tells Lulu that he went to see Johnny. He says he doesn’t trust him, but that he trusts Lulu and respects her decision to work together, even if he doesn’t like it. He apologizes for walking out on her earlier. Lulu apologizes for not consulting him before making such a big decision, since they’re in this together.

Kate says she left her baby to die and wonders what that makes her.

I absolutely ADORE John and Anna together. The ease that ME and FH have is amazing and I don't understand why they're forcing Anna/Luke when they could so easily have ANna/John.

Loved the Luke/Lulu scenes.

Loved the Dante/Johnny scenes.

Loved the Lante reconciliation.

Very rarely does Sonny say or do anything that I liked, but I laughed heartily when he opened the living room door to the let crew in and he had the biggest, fakest smile on his face. And when he came back with the cookies and offered them to the crew too.

Kristina and her angst don't make any sense to me.

Please, please, please tell me that Trey isn't Kate's son. Because that's just beyond contrived. And stupid. And I don't like Trey.

HATED the second Anna/Luke kiss as much as the first one. Jumping into his arms? Really?

i'm thinking that Spinelli would be perfect as the son of Kate and Joe Jr. he needs some blood relations in Port Charles and it would amp up the drama with Spinelli and Sonny and Jason ...

To me it's pointless to have Kate's son be some newbie. Who's going to care about him at all? I would like it to be Spin, but I don't see it happening.

I think John and Anna have fabulous FRIEND chemistry, but I just see ease and comfort, not passion. I don't see them as lovers. I do think Luke and Anna are kinda cute, and I'm happy they are taking Luke back to more how he used to be. I'm also thrilled Luke is confiding in Lulu now, just like he used to always do with Lucky.

I'm still bored with Kristina's crappy tv show, and making Trey Kate's son isn't going to help at all.

How stupid is Sonny? Seriously, yesterday he gives info to the cop McBain about his sister's death and he incriminates himself in the cover up of said crime, and then today he is filmed on camera bragging about how he gave information to a cop about a crime that someone else committed. I thought old school mobsters had a no snitching code of honor amongst one another, wouldn't this fact endanger him and his children's lives??? Will Jason have to interrupt talking to one of his exes about the pain he feels over the loss of Sam's baby that he didn't want in order to deal with Sonny's loose lips?

I agree McBain and Anna flow well together, actually it reminds me a lot of Bo and John on OLTL, but I feel like they're writing McBain a bit lighter here on GH as to how he was on OLTL, where I felt he was always a damn stick in the mud. Could it lead to romance? I don't know... I prefer Anna with Robert. Maybe if John comes back to PC after this visit home, they will lead a stronger police force when dealing with GH's crime. I prefer John with Sam, but I don't think Sam is in the mind frame for romance anytime soon, and the Natalie situation would have to be cleared up with a neat little bow first.

Maybe Luke could find Lulu a window AC unit off the back of one of Sonny and Jason's trucks. lol.

Really stunned that Kate's children are going to turn out to be Liz and Spinelli. Y'all thought that Liz was just being backburnered because Cartini hate women (okay, they do) and that Spinelli was being backburnered because he looks like a potato and gays don't like ugly (it's true, they don't) but IN FACT the relationship between the Lizard, the PotatoFace and their mentally ill mother is going to be driving story for the next (last) six months of GH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're so lucky to see these maestros at work. Bravo, good sirs. B-R-A-V-O

Ditto to everything you said mipeony.. I just really must add no to Luke and Anna.. Please Anna and Mac or Anna and McBain or of course Anna and Robert. Just no way no how Luke.. The character is so dead to me and I hate how he is treating Tracy!!

Bishbay LOL!!! Big smile

The thought that Spinelli might turn out to be Sonny's son always cracked me up to no end. Sonny is always so exasperated by Spinelli, and he acts like he doesn't understand a thing that comes out of his mouth. I LOLd when I pictured the two of them facing off after finding out that they are father and son. Laughing out loud Anyway, judging by that little bit of energy that Sonny and Trey shared today, and the cutaway scenes with Connie and Ewan about her baby, I think it's Trey, and that Joe Jr. is the father. In a way it really would fit if Connie is Spin's mother. I still want to know the impetus for Jackal P.I. I remember all the talk about Spin having DID.

Nukristina just isn't cutting it for me. I find her very abrasive, and if she was my daughter, I would launch her off of the end of my foot before I would put up with her cr*p. And gone is Lexi A.'s vulnerability. Even though her Kristina was a brat, I rooted for her and thought she was age-appropriate--which I found refreshing.

When I saw Luanna on paper, I wouldn't have guessed that Luke and Anna would have any chemistry together, but there's enough there for me to be curious about where it goes. I know Tracy is going to be very hurt, but I find this triangle very entertaining.

If you had asked me a year ago about which man I would root for in a Lante/Johnny triangle, I would have come down firmly on Jolu's side. But I guess a year makes the difference. I still love me some Johnny, but Dante has been wonderful to Lulu since they got married. I wouldn't want to see Lulu screw that up, nor do I like the idea of mob money running through her place of business.

Just like everyone else, I'm tired of "Rapeview." That said, KeSu is making the most of her material, and Connie (I guess Kate is the alter?) is very rootable.

Ewan is easy on the eyes. I'd like to see him get a real story.

OH, another Sonny centric episode.

is this the change that Obama....i mean Ron Cavarlati and Frank Valentini "promised" us last remaing ABC soap fans??

Trey = Connie's son. it couldnt be more f*cking obvious. that's steller writing there reRon.

Anna will turn into TRASH is she sleeps with Luke, knowing what she does about him. then again she slept with and married David Hayward on All My Children so idk why this is surprising.

Unless I fell asleep while watching GH, Spinelli has had exactly one intimate relationship (Maxie) since the character showed up around November 2006. I honestly don't get why JC aka Matt Hunter was sent packing when the character is a doctor and has family on the show. I know RC/FV were all about family connections on OLTL which is why it is so odd that Spinelli is still on the show, unless his contract doesn't expire until the end of 2012.

I gagged at the Anna and Luke kiss. Blech.

Lawd. I guess RC moved Sam's "baby by rape" over to Connie/Kate! Drunk

Maybe we should start a campaign for "Sonny free" TV! Party

Say what? Where is the Liz information coming from? Kate had a son, as far as I know.

Other than Heather and Anna, this show is still a train wreck. Cartini should watch the new Dallas and learn about the right way to write and produce a soap. What a mess GH still is.

The most we're left to wonder about is who will be NuKate's long lost son(Drunk. That in a nutshell is why GH stinks right now. Seriously, another cliche soap plot?

I had to turn my eyes away when Anna jumped into Luke. I think she wrapped her damn legs around him. The visual was nauseating. But yes Perkie, I agree that she has MUCH more chemistry with McBoring. I wanted her to jump him instead. I think they won't go there because OLTL fans would be up in arms since he's with someone in Llanview and this whole merger was about please OLTL fans so that their beloved fictional town could seem like it was still going on. But having hottie McBoring stay celibate in PC for too long just seems like a waste of man-talent.

I normally LOVE Luke + Lulu scenes. They have such a natural chemistry. But all of her flaunting around and fanning herself and sweating just distracted me from the scene. We got it with the fans. It was hot...now what was the point to all of the scenes? And the only person Luke can talk to about kissing Anna is his daughter?

I love Dr. Hottie Psychiatrist. But he needs some believable dialogue. The NuKate scenes were embarrassing again. No actress could salvage this plot, much less make the dialogue anything but embarrassingly funny. NuKate, eyes frozen, just starred off into the distance. Where did the writers and this actress do their research for this particular portrayal of mental illness?

The hair grease department at GH, formerly only over-used by Sonny, has now attacked Johnny. His hair was greasier than Exxon. The ONLY thing left to like about rapist/killer Johnny IS his looks. Why must they mess it up?

Shockingly, I kind of liked Sonny in this episode. Only because of his homoerotic encounter with reality boy. As Sonny slammed him into the wall, I thought they might kiss but alas they only had stare down eye sex with each other. Reality boy is WAY annoying. But NuKristina is EVEN MORE annoying. She seems to suck her teeth and roll her eyes as her only form of showing expression. And she really seems far too stupid to go to Yale. When they mentioned she was the 95th percentile, I thought: then American education is failing a lot of kids. It's a shame young women can't be written as intelligent. Remember how Claire Labine used to write young Robin? Once again, NuKristina isn't a as much of a casting problem as a writing problem.

Not that female characters are the only ones who can be dumb. As evidence we have Dante, possibly the most IQ challenged of any soap character in the history of this genre. This regime's needing him to crawl up Sonny's ass for "saving his life" has been the final bullet to this already brain dead characters head.

And what was the Friday cliffhanger supposed to be? What are the "surprises" this regime keeps promising? I can't' say I care about any current story. I just want the stupidity to end and be replaced with something else. It seems they are hinging a lot on viewers caring about NuKate and her DID and long lost child. They put a lot of their credibility into this story which relies on our caring for an unpopular re-cast, pushing aside our disbelief and finally actually rooting for a character who has changed with each of the last three writing regimes. It's a lot to ask of the audience. But I have to wonder why NuKate is the new lead actress on GH. Is this who they thought we wanted to see the most of?

But that's just one of many decisions this regime has made that make this soap fan wonder why. It seems they followed a recipe for failure: no romance, soap cliche, showcasing unpopular characters at the expense of beloved ones. Every regime is going to have some failures. But this regime's failures have added up very quickly and they've now buried themselves and the show with it. It's time to start digging out of this mess but I fear they'll only dig deeper into this black hole of misogyny and soap camp.

So Trey is Joe the third. Did his father find him in the dresser drawer?

Why does Connie hate Sonny if Joe Jr. raped her? She left Sonny to protect him?

Thanks Anna, now my eyes are bleeding.

Why can't there be ANY story on this show that does not involve the MOB!

Why can't we have sweet love stories?! Sadly, the Lulu and Dante story has run its course and they are now dull. Yes, dull. Not much of a spark there.

I am enjoying the Luke/Tracy/Anna triangle with Heather thrown in to make complications throughout. I would much prefer Heather to be delusional about Luke than a baby switcher, nurse killer and all around loon who can easily move bodies and babies without anyone noticing.

Olivia and Steve are a nice romance but sooooooo quickly did their romance move from them to Olivia spying on Heather that you forget there is a love affair going on. It would have been better if Heather was just humorously trying to thwart the coupling.

Mac and Felicia are a new REdone package but it would have been nice if Alexis was still in the mix and that Mac was now finding himself torn between lovers.

Michael and Starr could still work if they added 2 more to the young set that the two would date but then slowly and BELIEVABLY bring starr and Michael together. Let these kids be kids!!!

Liz, Sam, Jason and Ewen could be another nice combo. It could be an interesting way to keep the hitman/serial killer in the show without having him be the heavy.

WAIT A SECOND HERE!!!! I just thought of something. How are they explaining the deal between Kate and Connie since when Kate was raped by JR she was REALLY CONNIE who she REALLY is!?!!!

So then Kate is the DID personality. Connie went to her priest. Connie decided not to abort the child and have it. Connie opted to go to college and leave her family behind. Connie made all of these decisions herself. Connie was the strong one all along, not the Kate personna.

Kate came about when Kate went to college, that has always been the case here with this character. So truth be told, when Connie is trying to come out SHE IS THE RIGHTFUL PERSONALITY that should be in control since she was ALWAYS THE ORIGINAL ONE, not Kate. Kate is the personality that took over when Kate was raped.

I haven't watched the reveals this week so I apologize if I am revealing what they have revealed on the show.

But think about it. Kate took over because Connie, who was always the strong, tough one, was beat down and ruined y the rape so "good girl" kate came out.

If any personality is washed away it should be Kate, people!! Not Connie. Connie is the true PERSONALITY.

Geeze another rape, rapebaby, long lost kid, Konnie (not interested)

I'm with you Perks I'd rather have seen Anna kiss McBain then Luke.

Anna/John have a sensous chemistry. I don't feel anything with Anna/Luke but I know they will write them to work even though I just don't see chemistry between them...that's the GH way ...sort of like Starr & Michael..force feed until they work.

Krystina is FF material at this point she's shown "no growth" after getting her butt whipped in her abuse storyline. I just don't care about her she's acting like a spoiled brat.

Johnny give Sonny his Afro Sheen back. Thanks. And someone rip that bandage off Ew's head. Now to my main gripe How could Trey the fourth Ford brother be Kate's? He looks to be Krissy's age. And Just in time for teen summer viewing-hide your pregnancy and leave your baby in a drawer to presumably die. Delightful. I don't know if I want to kick Cartini or ask for some of their stash.

And left it in a drawer.
Because it's so much less of a sin to kill a newborn than an unborn baby.
But I'm sure the baby lived and is now old enough to come to Port Charles and annoy all of us.

Reminder:Connie/Cate is within a year or two of Sonny's age although KSul is 15 years younger than MB.

Trey is a grad student and while one can attend grad school at any age, I think he is supposed to be about 24 to Kristina's 20/21. I think Starr is 20 and although Michael was once about 5 years older than Kristina, in SorasLand Michael is just a year older.

Remember soap fans, Claudia gave birth at age 5. Stupid writers will write stupid things! I could care less who NuKate's kid is. However, how old that child is now or how old the actor who plays that child is will have zero bearing on who these hacks decide is the child.

Hmmm. I wonder if Dante could turn out to be Joe Jr's. kid? Olivia and Connie would have been pregnant around the same time. Olivia's baby was still born while she went looking for Connie and found the baby in the drawer.

And yes, Kate is the alternate personality that Connie created after going to college. Connie has been struggling to get out after Kate was shot at her wedding to Sonny.

I hated seeing Anna jumping Luke after we saw the man lying with his head in a hooker's lap last year. I still remember the revolting conversation Luke had with Lucky about Jake's death.

I just went back through and watched the John/Anna scenes from this episode and I totally didn't catch his little singsong the first time I watched it... Anna and Luke sitting in a tree... hahahhahaa....

Every time someone mentions Joe Jr I end up flashing back to that old Sandra Bullock movie, While You Were Sleeping... her landlord had a son named Joe Jr that was interested in her, and I picture him everytime. Too funny.

It strikes me that not since Jaq came and left have we all seemingly be united this way - we ALL seem to hate luke and anna kissing. Way to go Cartini, way to bring the fans together, though I think not as you expected.

I just hope to dear lord that they dont then tie this joe jr. into sam or johnnys paternity. I have a feeling that they are in love with the idea of this new character and hes going to be touching nearly every story. I would much much much rather see Vincent Irizary coming as a recast Jeff Webbwer, as a new distant cassadine that fathered sam and/or johnny, or even david hayward but stripped of the stupid project orifice story in his background and put him in a triangle with anna/VI/alexis. Either that or get Robert back pronto. Luke dogging his best friend is disgusting and the Anna I love would never ever go there. Not buying it one bit.

And that sort of brings me to the other thing I wanted to mention - one thing I think cartini HAS gotten right is the editing. I see a vast improvement on that front and I love that they manage to edit two parts to a story whether its jason talking to carly about the hit men and then the hitmen getting to john or whatever. I think however with the luanna stuff and the tracy/alice stuff much like the liz/jason vs. sam/mcbain flips it really highlights how much of an asshat these guys are being. Doesnt cartini see that it is probably wildly unappealing to most women - to watch the older supposed true love ex wife finally forgiving luke and then flipping to luke romancing anna? Doesnt cartini see that it is probably wildly unappealing to most women to watch jason dog out his wife about being a rape victim to his ex lover while we are flipping back to the wife agonizing over the aftermath of that rape. And these guys are SUPPOSE to be our shows heros/anti-heros. I agree with the poster who said cartini needs to watch the new dallas and see how its done. the white hats dont have to be totally good and pure and they certainly dont have to be push overs but at least be appealing (and not just appealing in comparison to dirtbags like Joe jr.)

We do not all agree - most of us who like the show do not post anymore because we're made to feel unwelcome if we disagree with the majority here.

I love you EET but I happen to be enjoying the Anna/Luke/Tracy storyline! It's all kinds of good soapy fun and I'm delighted to be watching at least one storyline on GH that isn't all about rape, DID, rape, dead/switched children, rape, mobsters, rape. I love all three talented actors and characters!!! And even though all three are over 50 at least it's some humor and love in the afternoon for a change!!!!! Smile
