General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Heather gives Todd the photo of Sam and John kissing. While Todd would love to use it, to get back at John, he refuses to hurt Sam anymore than he already has.  Todd tells her to dig dirt on someone else, namely Johnny.   Todd’s concerned by Johnny’s involvement with Starr, but he doesn’t trust Johnny and knows he’s hiding something big.  He tells Heather to find Johnny’s skeleton.   Heather sets out to find Johnny’s secrets. 

Anna tells Delores that they found Anthony with gunshot wounds, but doesn’t think Lacey did it.  Anna thinks Heather moved the body because she’s fascinated with Luke. Anthony had other enemies, including Sonny and Jason, but that she wants them to check out Johnny. 

Johnny’s wondering where Starr’s mind is at since her rehearsal wasn’t good.  Starr admits she’s thinking of someone and that it’s Michael. She they’re just friends even though they kissed.  Johnny says she and Michael look good together and they deserve to be happy.  Starr’s worried about getting hurt again and that it will be weird since Michael is Sonny’s son and Kate killed her family. Johnny mentions Todd coming to see him, to warn him away from Starr. Starr gets angry and she heads out to find her father. 

Michael’s listening to Starr’s song on his iPod and remembering their kiss, when he spots Jason, who’s just removed his wedding ring.  Michael talks about Starr and that he has feelings for her. Talk turns to Sam and Michael is sure that she still needs Jason, but Jason says he saw her kissing John and that it’s over.  He says Sam didn’t turn to him in her time of need and then John was there. 

Liz leaves a voice message for Jason about the kiss. Steve overhears and is upset to hear the kiss was with Jason.  She denies that it was romantic, saying Jason’s dealing with his marriage and she wants to be there for him.  Steve asks if she still has feelings for Jason, and that he’s worried about her.  Liz says she’s fine. Steve says he and Olivia had a fight because she hired Spin to follow Heather.  Liz points out that his mother isn’t easy to get along with and he should be cautious.   

Kristina catches Sam taking off her ring and begs her to reconsider and give Jason another chance.  Sam says she can’t get past what Jason did even though she misses him.  Kris says Jason could be helping and supporting her. Sam admits she kissed John McBain.  Kristina wonders if Sam wants to be with John or go back to Jason.  Sam says John was never the problem. 

Kristina reminds Sam that she and Jason have survived a lot, but Sam says she hasn’t seen the man she loves in a long time.  Kris begs her to put the ring back on and Sam does.

Starr goes to her father and tells him to back off or she’s kicking him out of her life.  Todd says he was only trying to protect her because he loves her. He promises not to interfere regarding Johnny anymore.  Starr tells him the music and the club will launch in a couple of weeks. 

Anna calls Johnny to come down to the PCPD for information on Anthony.  When he gets there, Anna tells him that they found Anthony’s body buried in the woods.  Johnny asks if Luke is in custody for shooting him. Anna points out that she didn’t say Anthony was shot.  Johnny comes back with Anthony’s blood being at the boathouse and Lacey disposing of the gun.  Anna says Tracy denies anything and Luke is missing. She thinks Heather was involved in the disposing.  Johnny heads out. Delores stops him and tells him that Anna thinks another man was involved as well.   Anna tells her men to put an APB out on Luke. 

Starr calls Michael to hang out and Jason warns him to be careful.  When they meet, the two kiss and Michael says she sounds stressed.  Starr is bothered by her father. Michael says it reminds him of Kristina, but Starr says Todd doesn’t have boundaries. 

Heather gets back to the office and shows Todd that she has put a camera in Johnny’s office and he can watch everything Johnny does. 

Anna shows up and says Heather needs to come with her down to the station to answer questions about Anthony.  Heather leaves her purse, with the DNA letter, behind. 

Jason runs into Steve and Liz at Kelly’s. Steve warns him to stay away from his sister and Sam walks in and hears Steve say that Jason had no business kissing Liz.

    I wish Liz was planning the Nurses Ball instead of kissing married men.

    she should be the Lucy Coe or Amy Vining of this generation and doing all the Nurses Ball stuff.

    Looks like Todd will use whatever he gets on Johnny to control him like he’s doing with Heather.

    It’s great seeing Anna back on the force. I was watching a classic episode on youtube where she’s giving a speech at the annual Policeman’s Ball. they should bring that back too.

    I’m still exhausted from yesterday’s episode.

    Sam was in a dress and she wasn’t going to a wedding or a funeral. She looked pretty, too bad they still won’t let her wear other colors. I want to see her working with Todd more.

    Where were the cameramen? I’ll bet Sam thought they weren’t taping since they were gone, but there’s probably some hidden cameras in there. And if Krissy knew and didn’t tell Sam, then she’s using Sam’s pain for her own gain.

    Jason sure left out a major detail while spilling Sam’s kiss with McBain to Michael, his own smootch with Liz. Funny how when Jason spills to people about Sam, he’s never gives them the WHOLE story as it pertains to his actions.

    Not only can Heather kill people with drugs, forge letters, carry around a man’s dead weight like it was nothing, convince men to switch babies around, blackmail herself into a nice cushy gossip column, walk on water (I’m assuming that because to take that shot of Sam/McBain she’d have had to been out on the water, with a camera she wasn’t shown possessing when she was at Kelly’s right before the fireworks), but she also kept up on the advances of motion detected vid cams while she was in the nuthouse. Sure, that’s all TOTALLY believable. Yeah, right.

    I miss McBain. Please Sam, give the ring to Jason and file the papers, and let him go sit and spin with his box of pain.

    I was wondering where she learned all the camera stuff, and how to set up a remote server they could access online. I guess they teach hard core life skills in the looney bin.

    I’m hoping these so-called “writers” are going to introduce a new character that has been helping Heather all long in the shadows, getting her caught up and teaching her about the newest tech, helping her move dead people, dig graves, etc.

    i know it’s a soap but it’s getting ridiculous how much of a SuperMan she’s becoming.

    she’s 63 years old for heaven’s sake.

    Great show today. I love how Todd is slightly outraged on Natalie’s behalf… even if she isn’t his favorite niece ;-)

    I love the scenes with Todd and Heather. She doesn’t understand his sarcasm and I think he has a certain respect for her brand of crazy….

    What would GH be without those pesky little unlikelihoods?! I’m still trying to figure out how Jason got Joe Scully Jr. to Port Charles undetected. Or how anyone could buy that a publishing diva could shoot out tires during a high-speed chase and inadvertently cause the death of a little girl and her dad. Or why Heather hasn’t dropped dead yet from a heart attack.

    Maybe there’s some special ingredient in those BLTs that gives her superheroine strength as well as high cholesterol. Whatever it is, I’m willing to go along with the implausibilities — and even overlook Johnny’s leaving his office without locking the door — if it keeps Heather around wreaking havoc for a while longer. I don’t think the show would be quite as interesting without her.

    Now I am going to go all Heather on y’all: don’t call her Heather, it is SuperHeather to you!

    To think that this SuperWoman gave birth to a dunce like Steven Lars. It really stirs up that whole nature vs nurture debate.

    What’s next? SuperHeather rapes Luke and gets pregnant! If Helena can, than for sure SuperHeather can! And ReRon is writing after all!

    And we find out that Alice, the one that was Heather’s mother, sold Heather’s fraternal twin to the Perkins family in Pennsylvania, who named the child Alison!

    Back in the day when soaps were plentiful or at least when there were 6 or 8 of them on TV during the day, General Hospital, and even The Young and The Restless, could take huge liberties like this storyline with Heather and we would probably overlook it as growing pains to get some whimsy into the show. But not now. I love Heather and Robin Mattsen and think the actress is showing all these younger actresses and actors HOW IT’S DONE. But the convoluted scenarios that Cartini are putting her in and the ridiculous ways she gets away with it without detection is just making this show more a joke than a soap.

    I am not surprised but disappointed that Cartini has fallen into the trap of IMMEDIATELY thinking the perp is Johnny with NO clear evidence other than a Dante-hunch. Anna calling Johnny in first after knowing the REALLY bad blood with Sonny and Jason, the public threats of death to Anthony by the 2 and the pure fact that Johnny has ONLY and EVER threatened his father in the privacy of his condo is just one of the dumbest aspects of this show.

    With Heather, Cartini has created a character similar to Spinelli that can add humor and lighthearted fare to the drama of a soap opera but she has been turned UP several notches to be involved in almost every story without her dim witted AND THE DULLEST SHOAP CHARACTER… and sorry actor… on daytime ever noticing even with his girfriend screaming YOUR MOMMA IS NUTS!!!

    Heather knows everything and can do it all. She’s the new supervillain of Port Charles! It’s unbelievable but Heather’s fun. I enjoy watching her and her messing with people is entertaining. It’s not another Lisa Niles where you just get annoyed with the stuff she does. Heather’s a loony and I love her for it!

    But what bothers me are these major errors in writing. Yeah, how did Jason get Joe Jr. to Port Charles exactly??? Not to mention all the errors that were made by the production of Kristina’s awful reality show. There is nothing legal about that stupid stuff.

    And since I heard many people telling their own truth yet again when it comes to Liz, let me just say that Jason kissed her! It wasn’t like she was trowing herself at him. She actually tried to help him and talked to him several times about having an honest talk with Sam and telling her his feelings. It’s not Elizabeth’s fault that Jason is incapable of doing so and rather kisses his ex-fiancée instead of asking his wife why she is kissing someone else.

    I like that Anna isn’t stupid and is seeing the bigger picture. But what’s with her leaving some things so unresolved? Yesterday she didn’t look into the shack after she was already on the door (and a dead body was found not far away from it) and today they letting Heather leave her handbag behind, which should among other things have her ID in it. Not to mention her bringing in Johnny before Anthony’s nemesis Sonny??? The police doesn’t work like this!

    I don’t care if Heather will next control the weather in Port Charles, I’m freaking loving it. Robin Mattson is pure gold on this show and looks to be having one hell of a good time. Honestly, I rather take this version of Heather Webber than the one that hatchet job hack Jill Farren Phelps brought back years earlier.

    Anna thinking like the smart pistol she is who killed Anthony was so much fun to watch. I’m so grateful Valentini was able to bring Finola Hughes back to this show. Putting Anna Devane back as the commish was a genius move and I’m enjoying every minute of it.

    Steve needs to butt out of Liz’s life and concentrate on his cuckoo mother. Isn’t he responsible for her? Wasn’t that the condition of her release?

    I want more Liza/Jason/Sam!!!! Finally a writer with the balls to write this triangle full steam ahead and adding McBain in the picture. Cannot wait for today’s show to see Liz/Jason/Sam go at it.

But not now.

    What “back in the day” era are you referring to? The radio shows of the 1930’s? The immediate days after “These Are My Children” in 1949? The simultaneous debuts of “As the World Turns” and “The Edge of Night” in 1956? By the time GH appeared in 1963 and The Young and the Restless popped up in 1973, there were no “growing pains” for audiences to accept within the soap opera landscape as a whole. It was already a mature and vibrant genre, peaking in the 1969 season with 19 shows on the air. To say that those were a part of the “growing pains” of soaps as a genre is outrageously shortsighted and historically inaccurate.

    The era of stunts, big adventure, sci-fi-esque, supernatural and outrageous storytelling lasted a good 15 YEARS staring in the early 1980’s — with Monty’s GH, at that — and the remnants of which lasted well into the 2000’s. Not coincidentally, when it comes to sheer numbers of shows, the 1960’s and early seventies were higher rated in terms of raw numbers of viewers for multiple reasons (briefly 4 and then 3 networks (Dumont, ABC, NBC, CBS); far more stay at home women), but the period of The Big Crazy Soap Story encapsulated the period when soaps hit both huge numbers AND were bouyed by the zeitgeist of the nation for such storytelling, sparked as much by Dallas and Dynasty at night as it was by Gloria Monty’s game changing gambits during the day. If it were not for massive and unrelenting budget cuts following the ballooning costs associated with soaps during the 80’s and a host of other reasons too long to go on here, soaps very likely would still be telling the biggest, most outrageous stories possible IF they could afford them.

    There is a claim/supposition here that assumes that daytime audiences don’t want big, crazy, “unbelievable” stories anymore (and the early failure of Port Charles especially after the adoption of the telenovela format and the slow, agonizing death of the wretched Passions aid that argument). This may be true, but it would be more accurate to say that SOME of the most VOCAL of the daytime soap audience that is LEFT doesn’t want this. The reality is that — according to all the chatter and the ratings and the media coverage — audiences of all kinds have embraced big, crazy unbelievable storytelling from the vampire nation of True Blood and The Vampire Diaries, to the witches of Secret Circle, to the all-knowing everything all the time “A” of Pretty Little Liars or the all seeing gossip girl of Gossip Girl, to a machine that knows what everyone is doing at any given time and can identify their danger level based on a number on Person of Interest, to the loosely fairy tale based Grimm to that most magical of soap operas, the LITERAL fairy tale based Once Upon a Time.

    And I think it would be safe to say that a lot of the viewers of those shows can be found right here on these boards, where it seems like complaining about how “unbelievable” Heather Webber’s actions have been in a soap opera where a dude tried to freeze the goddamn world at the height of its popularity and shares the same fictional universe where a billionaire built an underground city and multiple residents time traveled to 1888 and 1968 is, to be as kind about it as possible, an irony on multiple levels. The current iteration of Heather Webber — played by the awesome Robin Mattson, looking terrific and doing a bangup, swell job — is a fun, crazy character doing “fun” crazy shit. Stuff like Anna taking Heather in for questioning and leaving her purse (and laptop) on the desk is eyebrow raising, but then there is that final camera zoom on the paternity letter sticking out of the top of Heather’s handbag. So at that point, what is MORE important? That — for the sake of dramatic license (or contrivance, something that NO SOAP HAS EVER DONE) — we should nitpick over the purse being left on the desk OR should we as soap opera viewers be concerned with who, if anyone, might FIND the letter?

    Does everything always have to be a referendum on how much smarter “the fans” are than however “the powers that be” are defined at any given moment?

    I swear to God, some of ya’ll would take the fun out of a funeral.

    She explained her hunch to Delores though. Anthony’s phone was left behind at Johnny’s appartment. JOhnny was the one pointing the finger at Lacey and working overtime to make sure someone arrested Luke. He was showing suspicious signs.

    After thinking about that whole thing with the shed, I decided to fanwank it that Anna was specifically looking for a buried Anthony. Once she found him, there was no reason to look in the shed for any other bodies, because she wasn’t looking for another body, just Anthony’s.

    J Bernard Jones, you write very well. And your post gave substance for the mind to say the least. However I must be part of those fans who look for more credibility in my soap nowadays. I don’t watch True Blood, Vampire Diaries and all those shows for the same reasons (didn’t like Port Charles for the same reasons also). The only “supernatural show” I have really watched was Lost because when it started I didn’t see it as a “supernatural show” and then I was hooked.

    I have been watching GH for 31 years. I have watched and loved the total GH nonsense that was marvelously showcased by Tony Geary and Genie Francis in particular at the time. But I must have changed while getting older I guess and I know that the lack of credibility of some of my soaps sometimes kills me. The day to day life, the kids and now grandkids, it seems all this has changed a lot the things I like or not like on TV. And I think that I try to watch TV less than when I was younger because I am afraid that at the end of my life I will have the feeling that I have spent more time in front of my TV than with my extended family and friends :)

    Don’t misunderstand me, I still love the “even if your heart has stopped in front of me and I saw your coffin put in the ground, you may still be alive” thing (that’s my favorite one in soaps, the resurrection of the deads). I loved the trainwreck, the Metrocourt hostage crisis, the Wyndermere Black and White ball which were my last great GH sweeps…

    What bothers me is when the writing seems totally sloppy and the audience itself can think of better ways to achieve plot points without ruining the credibility of some characters. I love Robin Mattson (even more on Santa Barbara to be honest) but Heather planting a camera in a mobster office in 3 minutes??? Sorry but it bothers me more than if Alan was coming back from the heaven he must sit in… But this is just me :)

    Oh… BTW, could we get ONE day without Todd? He has become the new GH airhog… One of these day, I am even going to miss Sonny (and I loathe the Corinthos family). They better not make Todd the one that will be the downfall of Johnny or I will hate Cartini forever… The real Johnny (pre-Cartini) is worth 10 Todds so please do the right thing and don’t make the gang rapist a hero!

    Pjc722, great post. After John bonding with Sonny (John, meet Dante…), I guess we will have Anna having a sweet spot for him too in the future and closing the eyes like every PC Commissioner before her. She will focus on Sonny’s mob enemies instead of course!

    I only wish that we could have more Felicia and Mac along with more Monica and other Q’s. The show is getting much better though.

    Robin Mattson isn’t really 63 is she? If so, she looks even more fabulous with that in mind. I’m guessing she’s in her 50’s though. I hope Cartini realizes how much everyone’s enjoying Heather back on screen and will put her on contract!I’d like to see them bring her down a notch or two in the crazy dept if only to make it somewhat plausible that she can get away with her crimes. Just a touch of humanity and vulnerability would really bring back the delicious Heather of the 80’s. I wonder if the actress who played her mother, Alice, is still alive. Imagine Alice released from jail after all these years and put in the care of crazy Heather!

I am going to forget some but Raven, JS, Vet, Miry, and the smartest Teen I know had some great posts. Bishbay helped relieve some of the tension by making me laugh aloud.

    Tuesday on early Friday…chugging along…let’s see…

    Whoa! No bully. Again. Me likey… :bigsmile:

    If SR’s Steve wasn’t so tied up with concern for his mother, we might have
    more scenes like the ones with RH at Kelly’s. Nice give and take here, letting him swing from big brother (mixed with tart rebuke), “He kissed me…wasn’t romantic. It was-” “Wrong.” to translator “It wasn’t a real kis.” “Did his lips touch your lips?” and on to interrogator “Do you still have feelings for Jason?” Liz isn’t completely transparent, but she’s not opaque either. Her eyes shift, clearly not comfortable, but not willing to desert her friend. I don’t think she can honestly answer her brother and manages to table the inquiry: “Let it go.” Not without a last try: “I don’t want you to get hurt.” Knowing her history, I’m not taking any bets
    on that…

    She turns the tables on him, returning the favor, asking Steve about his Firecracker 4th which ended up fizzling. “…get in a fight?” “… a blowout.” “Over what?” ” My mother.” Yeah, it’s laugh inducing, until you remember it’s Heather. I got a kick out of Liz trying to put Steve at ease after the “dating site debacle”. “From what I know…the woman can handle herself.” Uh, she’s handled Steve, Luke, stiff as a board Anthony, and now Todd Manning with all the subtlety of a dump truck…

    Speaking of brother/sister vibes that’s exactly what I get watching BrBa and KA. I noted this same quality early on and it’s striking how “easy” they look together. Even when John marches her into his office. “Sit…You were all over the place in rehearsal…something on your mind?” “Someone.” He was part stern taskmaster, part mother hen, surveying his first signed artist, who has, unbeknownst to her, had her life flipped 180 degrees and sideways by her mentor. Not wanting to reveal who’s got her brain (and heart) engaged she comes clean. “…MIchael.” He’s surprised, slightly confused. “That’s weird..odd…dating mother and son?” She tries to ignore that tid-bit and soon is rambling about her hopes, concerns, fears. About “getting close” to the point that someone would “be ripped away…maybe I shouldn’t even try to move on.” “You have to, you need to…You and Michael deserve to be happy.” There’s almost a frantic note that bursts from him, along with his own guilkt over what he’s taken from her. “Getting back…my music…You did that…You’re a good producer and an even better friend.” If John Z. exits PC it won’t be as a result of bullets or violence. It’ll be because of Starr Manning…

    Jr. is quite the happy camper. CD showa a “lighter” feel now that he (like KA) is out of the forrest of trial nd tribulation. But who should enter stage right (from the left side of your screen, ladies and gentlemen), but Mr. Morose and Depressed Extrordinaire. Our enforcer has had the ginger taken out of him, and not just the result of seeing his wife kiss another man. He’s gone and compounded the problem by kissing another woman. Okay. You’d think he’d muster a little enthusiasm for his nephew, but nah, too much work. “…I like her…she feels the same…slow…give it a shot.” “Maybe you shouldn’t.” “What?!” “…save yourself a lot of pain…” Good Lord love a duck! If everybody never got close to someone, or fell in love, there wouldn’t be that sharp sense of life well lived coursing through their veins. This writing makes Jason into an insipid dipstick. Liz, Sam, step away from the black t-shirt… :~

    Lindsey Morgan’s K didn’t annoy me. They toned down her make-up. And I picked up a trace of a scared little girl really wanting her big sister to work things out with her husband. “Don’t you miss him?…He could be helping you…supporting…If you let him.” Four words. Simple. Direct. But “…little more complicated…I kissed someone else last night…John McBain.” K’s incredulous and I think, confused that, while Sam is upset at what she’s done, she’s not a complete basket case. “John didn’t do anything I didn’t want him to do.” Hmm. Deep down Sam’s wishing she could insert Jason’s name instead of McBain’s into that line. K hits unknowingly where Sam won’t go. “Is it over?…Will you go back to Jason?” John was never the problem.” “…John’s a problem now.” Among other things. K begging her to put her ring back on makes me think she wants something in her life that “stays together” when her own seems to be in pieces. No offense, but Sam’s life isn’t exactly “together”…

    Maybe Heather had some portable “floaties” to buoy that camera out to where it could take Sam and McBain’s lip lock from that angle…

    Heather and Todd working together (for him reluctantly), are like a malice filled Abbott and Costello. Yes, RM and RoHo are getting major air time but I believe it’s as much about story as it is to have these two work together.(Thank goodness they’re teriffic.) For all his bluster, Manning shows how easily he can be swayed if there’s a chance he could be making the wrong choice. Thus you see a distinct weakness. Voila! Baby switch. (No clapping please.) He believes it’ll be easier to live with if he gets Heather to back off Sam. For practical puposes, setting her off on
    John Z.’s trail accomplishes two things. 1) Dirt on the mob prince and 2) keeping her occupied and out of his hair. “…the ones that scream the loudest…they’re redeemed…have the bigest skeletons in their closet. Find Johnny’s. His skeleton. Not his closet.” LOL! :bigsmile: Well. She doesn’t find his skeleton. She doesn’t find his closet. But she finds his office. She must’ve been taking lessons from Nolan on “Revenge”, planting that tiny video camera. Trouble is that video feed won’t help her when Anna Devane arives to haul her off to PCPD…

    I loved Anna and Padilla, Smart, savy women putting the puzzle together.
    Efficiently, with common sense and logic.(Even when it come to a whack job like Heather.) I think Anna goes to John as a suspect partly because she knows about the bully’s acquital and Jason’s surgery. All that evidence and hearsay emmanates from John, to point to one, Luke Spencer. “…time to rattle Johnny’s cage. I think you’re just the person…” I think they both rattled John, Anna going first, baiting him. “I’d assume Luke is in custody…he’s the one who shot (him) in cold blood.” “I never said he was shot.” Oops. Then it’s Padilla’s turn, starting with the sympathy card, then the water drip: “I shouldn’t say…the commissioner likes someone else…heard…she has evidence that ties another man to the crime.” You see his wariness tinged with a hint of nerves. Cut to the video feed at Manning Enterprises. A camera in an office. John is…slamming his hands on his desk. The rattling must have gotten louder…

    Oh, almost forgot. Sam heard Jason kissed Liz via a loud-mouthed Steve. Cue the dread filled music… :~

    Tune in for our next episode…
    As ever…Swan! 0:)
