General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Johnny and Lulu prepare for their opening night. Kristina and Trey arrive. Kris tells Lulu about her reality show. Carly arrives and offers her congratulations to Lulu and Johnny. Maxie and Patrick show up. Lulu tells them to have fun.

Dante talks to Anna about Heather possibly hiring a forger. Anna shows him her letter from Luke. They realize Heather wrote the note and has Luke stashed somewhere. Anna mentions Lulu’s letter. Dante wonders why she didn’t show it to him, until he reads it.

Todd wants Blair to go to the party with him to show Starr they’re making an effort and she agrees.

Michael gives Starr a rose. He tells her she’ll be great, despite the fact that she’s nervous. Johnny tells Lulu that Carly bought the first drink and wishes them success. Carly tells Lulu that Luke would be proud of her.

Blair hugs Starr and meets Johnny. Carly tells Todd to keep his hands off Johnny, but Todd’s more worried about Johnny’s hands on Starr and Blair. Blair is grateful to Johnny for all that he’s done for Starr. She tells Todd to thank Johnny and he reluctantly does.

Heather shows Luke a vial of LSD. Luke says no drug will make him love her, but she says the drugs are for Anna. She says Anna will go crazy. Luke wants to take it instead and make love. While Heather is tempted she decides the dose will go to Anna.

Olivia tells Steve about Heather and the forger. Steve’s angry that she hasn’t dropped this whole thing like he asked. Steve is sure the guy was visiting someone else and that Heather is working tonight. Olivia wants them to talk to Dante which angers Steve who wants a break. Olivia says she’s trying to protect him, but Steve says he won’t’ abandon his mother.

Patrick goes to a back room to take a pill. He is surprised to see Kristina’s camera man and angrily tells him to film someone else.

Lulu welcomes everyone to the Star and that she’s toasting to starting over. Johnny says it’s about new beginnings. He thanks Carly for the second chance. Johnny introduces Starr who thanks everyone who helped her and sings a song, while staring intently at Michael.

Archie the forger is brought into the station. He originally denies knowing Heather, until Dante tells him one of the letters was sent to Anna. Anna says forensic verified it was his work. Archie admits Heather hired him to write the letters from Luke and mentions doing work with her before. He tells them about the letter from Maggie. Dante tells Anna the back-story. Anna’s even more concerned about Luke’s well being.

After the song is done, Blair and Todd congratulate Starr. She goes to Michael and they kiss, which shocks her parents and Carly. Starr admits they’re dating. Todd reminds her that Michael is Sonny’s son, but she points out he’s her father. Blair’s just happy that Starr is happy and Carly thinks it’s great.

Patrick tells Maxie he’s leaving, but for her to stay and support Lulu. Kristina congratulates Starr on her singing. Lulu tells Maxie that she’s worried about Dante who never showed up.

Carly tells Todd that she saw him and Blair hugging and he’s ready for new beginnings. Todd takes Blair to his room. She says they have a lot to talk about. He looks at a ring in a box.

Olivia finds Heather dressed up like the maid, in Anna’s room.

Patrick comes back to the boat and sees Ghost Robin on the deck.

    Loved the absolutely gobsmacked look on Carly, Todd and Blair’s faces when Starr walked up to Michael and kissed him. Also loved that both mother’s were all, “i’m cool with it”.

    Looks like Olivia isn’t too long for this world. Looks like she’ll end up with Anna’s batch of laced iced tea. I never hated Olivia, so that would make me sad but it should give DZ some good material as the angst ridden son.

    Steve’s a douche bag.

    This was actually a pretty good episode…no Sonny, Kate, Jason, Joe Jr. et al…and I don’t think I FF’d once! Shocker!!

    Not only is Steve a douche, but Dante has also been one lately. Where did all this jealousy come from anyway? I don’t think Lante are long for this world and that’s too bad. I really liked them in the beginning. But they have been together longer than the usual soap-couple-15-minute-allotment, so I guess it’s time for them to split. I guess I wouldn’t mind a re-do of Lulu and Johnny when he and Carly split, as we know they will, but when the truth comes out about Johnny, is he a goner too?

    I don’t think Olivia is long for this world either. I’ve gone back and forth with liking/hating Olivia, and right now I kind of like her investigating Heather and all. Too bad Steven Lars is just as stupid as the name his mother calls him by. The scenes with Heather and Olivia on Friday should be pretty good.

    As for Todd…I was not at all happy when RH came on GH as Todd. TSJ was “Todd” for me most of my time watching OLTL, and I quit the last year or so, so didn’t see RH’s comeback storyline. That being said, I am starting to really dig the Todd character on GH and that is mostly thanks to Heather, whom I also did not like when she first came back. Even though they will never be a romantic couple, they are the best pairing on the show right now.

    Crazy calling…:crazy:…crazy calling…:crazy:…crazy calling…:crazy:…

    Olivia has been a useless & waste of a character since the moment she set foot in Port Charles. she’s added nothing nor has she enhanced the quality of the show.

    hopefully this won’t be one of those “she’ll be sick for a few episodes then it’s back to normal” storylines.

    i really wish they wouldn’t use the show as a vehicle so Kristen Alderson can try to launch a singing career. this is not the place for it tbh.

    LOVED LOVED the Blair/Todd/Carly scenes but it sucks that Kassie DePaiva is only a temp basis with the show. i wish she would become a full-time contract player.

    i think Robin is astral-projecting herself to Patrick from wherever she’s being held prisoner.

    I have to say I liked this episode very much. It’s nice to not have the egos of a Sonny Corinthos or Jason Morgan on the screen. As I said before the Joe Jr. storyline is FF material anyway.

    I LOVED Robin’s appearance and the look in Patrick’s eyes. So magical! I wish we finally would get some results in the Robin storyline. And yes, I want Kimberly McCullough to return full time.
    I don’t know how her work as a director is kicking off … but this might be the last year of “GH”. And if she wants to direct, maybe Frank Valentini could work something out with her.

    Is Olivia going to die? Well it sure looks to be the direction they are taken this. And I thought from the moment of Heather’s return (and her reaction to Olivia) that she might be killed off with a glass of ice tea.^^ If Olivia dies, I won’t be sad.
    While I liked the character with Johnny, I think she just might be the biggest hypocrite running around in Port Charles.

    Michael and Starr kissing in front of Blair, Carly and Todd and seeing their reaction was pretty cool. I really like them as a couple. And now that there are some obstacles in a possible Kristina/Trey romance, I hope Trey stays far away from Starr.

    I LOVE that Archie came clean and that Anna finally has something on Heather.

    Heather and Luke’s talk about taking LSD and then having sex was NASTY. So NASTY!!! LOL

    I find the interactions between Maxie/Lulu/Patrick very strange and off-putting. If they had to do this stupid addiction story, it should have involved people that make sense. They shouldn’t have gotten rid of Matt. Liz should be involved as she is Patrick’s good friend (instead being the designated Jasam pimper)and was one of Robin’s best friends. She is the one Robin asked to watch over her family, not flighty Maxie or practically a stranger Lulu. Why get Patrick involved with this younger duo? It would seem kind of sketchy to me if Patrick became involved with either one of these young women. It wouldn’t be as bad as Abby/Michael, but it wouldn’t sit right the way Sonny/Emily didn’t sit right. Also, Epiphany and Anna should be more involved in this story.

    I love love love Heather Webber. I don’t want her to leave yet.

    I’m torn with Todd. I love the actor and what he does with the character, but in the back of my mind I keep thinking “Todd is a rapist”.

    I don’t really care for Starr’s singing. She’s not good enough to interrupt the actual show. I would rather hear BB sing if they have to have someone sing.

    I think Robin at the end is actually Lulu. The dress she was wearing was Lulu’s dress. At least now I know why they were making such a big deal about a pretty plain dress.

    The dresses looked similar but they were far from being the same. Robin wasn’t wearing Lulu’s dress.

    js3557 I agree with you I think it will be Lulu that Patrick thinks is Robin and kiss her, which is when Dante will probably show up. Olivia either has to die or go into a coma no way Heather is can let her go.
    It seems like Heathers world is closing in but she always has some trick.
    I love Todd the only problem I have is that he would never let Heather(or anyone else) get the best of him, he would find a way to turn the tables. Like that he is getting a little bit of a conscience but don’t like that she is ordering him around. When she gets busted he should blame it all on her theres a good chance he’ll be believed since she is nutty.

    I enjoyed that Heather’s LSD (Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds) touched off a series of Beatles references. That was fun.

    I guess everyone’s right about Olivia’s remaining time on this earth being counted in minutes. It’s a shame, in a way, because I loved Lisa LoCicero when she was on The City as Jocelyn, the lawyer/hooker with a heart of gold. She hasn’t been given the best character to play on GH, but on The City, she had the greatest cleavage. Er, I mean role.

    As for Todd’s reaction to seeing Starr kiss Michael, I guess they aren’t going to turn Todd back into psycho-dad, which means the threat to Starr and Michael is destined to be Trey, which I don’t see at all! Trey has all the creepiness of Rick the porn producer, who was trying to run Starr’s career on OLTL. I don’t see Starr ever falling for the ickiness that is Trey. They would have to do some whiplash rehab on that character to pull it off.

    That’s EXACTLY what I’m saying, js3557! I don’t know what Lulu is doing in Patrick’s story. To these eyes, she looks as uncomfortable there as she did talking to Carly today.

    And what a great prediction that it’s actually Lulu that Patrick is seeing and that he will end up kissing her. You are on a roll today! :)

    I love Heather, too, but as I said in another post, I don’t see how Heather is going to get the better of Olivia. Isn’t she supposed to be this tough broad from Bensonhurst? How in the world is Heather going to force her to drink that iced tea?

    It seems ridiculous to me that this allegedly tough Bensonhurst chick is going to be overtaken by Heather, but stranger things have happened. I guess crazy is tougher and stronger than anything else. lol

    Why does everyone think Olivia’s time is up? Because Heather is standing in front of her with a jug of iced tea? Unless there’s a gun in her pocket, I wouldn’t be too quick to count Olivia out. Plus Lisa LoCicero, whom I enjoy, too, was on SoapCentral Live last week, and she didn’t seem to be on the verge of going anywhere.

    On that show for sure! Otherwise why would Todd put up with Heather? He could shut her up. He has enough dirt on her to not do her dirty work anymore.

    I hope you didn’t get my comment about the dress wrong. I didn’t want to offend you in any way. Just wanted clear it up. :)

    I thought it was the same dress too… curious. Why would Patrick imagine Robin in a party dress she’s probably never worn before? Wouldn’t he imagine her in something he’s already seen her in? But I’m guessing it’s going to be Lulu standing there in the end.

    The thought of Luke and Heather getting it on repulses me, but then again the thought of Luke getting it on with anyone repluses me after the crap that spewed from his mouth about being liberated by killing Jake last year.

    I personally wish they would’ve left Starr’s singing career with the rest on OLTL. It got old with Blair doing it back then, and it started off old and sounded very overproduced now.

    Can Todd just take his shirt off again instead??? The rest doesn’t really keep me interested long enough.

    I’m going through McBain withdrawls! I hope they have him beefing it up also!

    soapjunkie88 – I wasn’t offended at all! I was legitimately thanking you for being pleasant about it. Some people use simple mistakes as a basis for attack…but you just kindly pointed it out. I’m glad you pointed out that it wasn’t the same dress.

    I’m anxious to see today’s show even more now, because I’m hoping you’re right, js3557! Regardless of whether you are, that’s a pretty inspired idea you have, there! (And better Lulu than Maxie…I’m more than a little creeped out by her living with Patrick and Emma.)

    It never occured to me that it would be Lulu standing there instead of Robin, although it would make some sense. I actually thought something was going to happen with Maxie, because she came out on deck moments before Patrick came back and I figured she would either see him talking to Ghost Robin or would be the stand in for the kiss. And, nothing against Jen Lilley, but I don’t want Maxie and Patrick kissing. Just…no.

    As for Lulu in the story, it makes sense to me. She’s Maxie’s best friend and the only person Maxie could have turned to about the drugs.

    While I did fast forward most of Starr’s singing, I did find her incredibly beautiful in her dress, hair and makeup. And I find her and Michael adorable together, so I liked that whole thing.

    Heather was strong enough to carry dead weight Anthony around for days and Luke’s unconscious body, so I have no doubt she can get the drop on 80 pounds of Olivia.

    I found it ironic that Heather claimed Luke was too ripe for the picking, considering many of us wondered how he’s getting by without a bathroom.

    Too bad they couldn’t hire Lisa Rinna to sneak in some Depends Silhouettes to him! ABC is always looking for those product placement opportunities.

    Robin!!!!! Love, love, love seeing Robin. I agree that I would rather see Liz in Patricks story. It would be sweet seeing them together with Cam, Aiden and little Emma.. Emma is such a little darling- I have seen her in two commercials.. Curious to see where this Robin sighting is going..

    Just can’t get into much else that was going on. Please tell me I am not going to have to keep hearing Star sing…

    Yes Todd Michael is Sonny Corinthos son but he’s also Carly’s son as well…

    Great scene w/Patrick seeing Robin!

    What is the obsession Carlintini has with Starr’s singing?

    if this were the same Todd from the 90’s, he would’ve strapped a bomb to Heather and told her “adios crazy!”.

    he’s killed about a dozen people in cold-blood before, simply because they got in his way or tried to intimidate him.

    i wish GH’s Todd were that guy again.

    In last week’s ratings, GH was the only soap who has added a few eyeballs. In the meanwhile, DAYS is below GH now.

    So NOW you’ve upgraded it from before the end of the year (as you said in a previous post) to in the next 18 months? It might be, but keep it up and your next prediction will be “before Arbor Day 2015.” SMH
