General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Ewen’s upset that the Robin is nearly comatose when all he wanted was to calm her down and stop her from trying to escape. He tells Robin that he had no choice, because she can’t leave. He says her family and friends have accepted her death and that she’s going to a special clinic in Switzerland. He puts the pamphlet beside her, but it falls on the floor.

Liz is surprised when Patrick tells her he’s checking himself in because he has a drug problem and has been self medicating. He admits that Robin is dead and he’s an addict. He explains how Maxie found the pill and that Lulu stepped in. He says Ewen is helping him and that Ewen’s a good guy who cares about Liz. He thinks she should give him a second chance.

Patrick explains how Ewen asked about Jason and that he doesn’t understand her soft spot for him. Liz says her feelings for Jason are complicated. Patrick tells her not to waste time pining for Jason when Ewen is such a good guy and is available.

Jason runs into Carly at the Metro Court where he’s meeting Diane. Carly thinks it’s for a divorce and that Sam is still grieving. Jason explains about all the kissing with Liz and Sam with John. Carly tells him to find Sam and start over and that Sam blames herself. Jason says love isn’t enough.

Todd accuses Johnny of a guilty conscience. Johnny realizes he’s the one that planted the camera. Todd says he heard Johnny admit to causing the accident, but Johnny says Connie is responsible. Todd gets angry and grabs Johnny. He starts to choke him, until Johnny punches him in the gut and grabs his baseball bat.

Johnny says it was an accident and that he didn’t mean to kill anyone that night. He asks if there isn’t something that Todd regrets. Johnny says he’s trying to make it up to Starr. Todd wonders what Carly would say if she knew the truth?

Anna shows up at Ferncliff and is stopped by Nurse Rachet. She shows her a picture of Robin. Nurse says she has to maintain confidentiality and wonders why Anna thinks Robin is there. Anna tells her about Heather. The nurse says she can’t trust what Heather says. Anna angrily yells that they should not have let Heather out and Ewen and Robin both hear. Robin mutters “Mom”. Ewen makes the nurse a sign to get rid of Anna. Nurse takes Anna to all the rooms to show her that Robin isn’t there, including the one Robin was in, which is now empty, except for the pamphlet on the floor.

Spinelli finds Sam snooping through Todd’s office. He tells her she can quit now and get her life back, but Sam wants to know what Heather and Todd have going on and thinks it’s about her. Spin wonders why she thinks that and claims she’s just trying to distract herself. Sam says she isn’t giving up trying to figure out Todd. Spin accuses her of giving up on her marriage.

Sam says Jason gave up first. Spin accuses her of kissing McBain to get back at Jason, but that they’re both in deep grief and need to reach out. Sam says she can’t wave a magic wand and goes back to wondering what Todd is up to. She decides she wants to crack open the safe so Spin heads out and leaves her to it alone.

Tracy stops by to see Luke and says she hates him because he lied to her and wants an honest answer. Luke admits he was going to break up with her to be with Anna. He apologizes for hurting her. He asks for her forgiveness. Tracy complains that he divorced her and didn’t help her with Anthony until the end. Luke says the thing with Anna is recent and wants to continue with it.

Tracy says they match each other, that she understands him and knows they aren’t over because they never will be. She wants to be there when he realizes Anna can’t make him happy and he comes crawling back to her.

Anna runs into Patrick and Liz, but neither tells her why Patrick is really at the hospital. She’s glad they’re talking about Robin, then heads off to see Luke. Patrick thanks Liz for not saying anything to Anna.

Ewen’s wheeling Robin out of Ferncliff, talking about how wonderful Switzerland will be, when Liz calls him and says she’d like to try again.

Anna explains to Luke about going to Ferncliff and not finding Robin, but finding the pamphlet on the floor. Luke warns her that Heather was simply torturing. However, but Anna feels she has to go to Switzerland, if there is the remotest chance that Robin is alive.

Todd calls Carly, but just as she answers Johnny tells him to hang up the phone because if he tells Carly what Johnny did to Starr’s child he will tell Sam what Todd did to hers.

My goodness, this show is on fire with the cliffhanger reveals.

Throughout the Johnny/Todd scenes I kept wondering how Johnny (and the writers) were going to get out of this. To prevent Todd from out and out killing JOhnny. And there it is. Johnny knows the truth about Sam's baby. I don't even care how he knows, I'm just glad he knows. And I'm hoping there's another reveal, like if johnny disappears or shows up dead, the information is with his lawyer and will be used against Todd.

I still don't understand what Tracy sees in Luke and why she'd want his sloppy seconds.

I love Anna but she's not thinking straight and I'd like to blame it on the grief. Why wouldn't she have been stealthier at Ferncliffe? Get MAc and Felicia involved. Instead she shows a nurse a picture and isn't smart about it.

I don't want MY Liz with Dr Crazy. It's bad enough I had to watch MY Robin get victimized by Crazy Lisa for a year and now Liz. UGH.

what's this so-called rumor about Robin and other "dead" characters from the past being held prisoner by Dr. Keenan and his co-horts because of a mind-control plot (similar to Lucky's)???

is this how Jonny will get off the hook for killing Cole/Hope/Anthony, because he was being mind-controlled and programmed to kill them??

How in the entire hell could Johnny possibly know about the baby switch? I'm waiting for monday to come for an explanation for this. But wow this past week minus anything Skate related has been ON FIRE!
GH is sooooooo good right now. I love it! I don't want to see Johnny get away with murdering a 3 year old and blaming it on the mentally ill women whom he also raped.

I didn't get how Johnny could know about the baby switch. It makes no sense at all. That was the big twist I did not like at all.

As for the rest of the show, I loved it!!!!

I loved Anna being so close to Robin and in the end she had something to hold on to with the information about this Swiss clinic. I hope she follows up on it.

I liked the scenes between Luke and Tracy. And if you look at Tracy's love life I get why she wants to hold on. In the end, she had a lot of fun with Luke. As did we with them as a couple. Smile

I'm interested in who Ewen is working for. And if Robin is the only one involved in whatever they are planing with her.

That purple shirt looked gorgeous on RHo. Todd definately did not expect for Johnny to throw the baby thing in his face. Whew! I want some back story that shows how Johnny knows and I hope it's a better story than when they backtracked and decided Johnny should be responsible for shooting out those tires.

I thought Ewen looked remorseful for what he ordered done to Robin, and then really worried that something might've gone wrong when she wouldn't come to right away. I don't know if it was him being scared of hurting Robin permanently or someone hurting him for potentially damaging their kidnapped patient.

I knew Tracey would get her heart broke by Luke yet again, and it hurt me to have her tell him she would wait for him to come crawling back. Tracey, Sam, and Liz all need to be first in line for a class or two teaching them how not to wait around for their men's garbage. That being said, maybe we're going to start to see a vengeful Tracey because when she gets hurt, she lashes out.

I want Sam to get her baby back, and for all of Jason's cheerleaders to leave her and the baby alone.

GH is GREAT right now .. CarTini have done a wonderful job in picking up the pace and giving us big reveals and cliffhangers seemingly every day. They made OLTL the best soap on TV for its last five years and I am optimistic that GH's best days are yet to come.

(But I still won't believe Cole and Hope are dead until I see the bodies!)

ummmm, you know what is REALLY crazy? This is how ONE LIFE TO LIVE was for the last 18 months of it's life and you people didn't realize how GREAT it was! Which means Frank and Ron should be sainted! Those TWO are the rock GODS of daytime and should be bowed down to at every chance.

I LOVE GH now more than ever...but at the time, let's be honest. GH should've gotten the boot and not OLTL. But, let's be happy that there is NEW life into GH and may it reign supreme for years to come. And again, we know who to thank for that...right?

I watched OLTL for decades and the last eighteen months the show was on fire!

Here is what I am loving about GH...right now. We're seeing vets and very little mob nonsense. How refreshing it is not to see so much of Sonny, Jason, Carly and Sam the last two weeks. Yeah!

If Johnny knew about the baby switch he would have used it a long time ago to back off Todd in order to keep working with Starr. I have a feeling we're about to see a lame back story on how Johnny found out about the baby switch.

One last thing, Johnny was sitting in his office trying to figure out who bugged his office. We're suppose to believe he's known all along about the baby switch and did not think that Todd was the one keeping tabs on his conversations?

GH...so good! It's because they are showcasing the actors who KNOW HOW TO BRING IT!! When that energy is alive on the set with a combination of awesome writing and awesome performances you either have to jump on board or get left behind. It seems that most everyone has decided to board the train...even if it is a CRAZY TRAIN. Love it!

I'm a little surprised that Luke is discouraging Anna from believing Heather. This from the man who saved the world from a weather machine! I hope when he's feeling better he starts snooping around a little on his own and starts helping instead of hindering.

Was anyone else yelling at the screen yesterday when Robin whispered, "Mom?" I was saying louder Robin! Louder!!! She can almost hear you!!

Perkie...somehow I don't think (I'm hoping) that Elizabeth isn't the victim this time around. I think she'll figure this thing with Ewen out and then SHE can be the hero again. I was really pissed that one of her best friends is being wheeled out of the hospital by that asshat WHILE she was talking to him. I hope she finds out about that so she can give him an extra kick in the nuts when all is revealed.

So excited about GH right now!!

FV should give them the boot so they can go to Y&R now that their best friend JFP is in charge.

the show has been so good without them hogging all the screentime like they've done for decades!

I think Ewen is Jerry's son and he is talking to Jerry. Ewen knew so much about Jerry's family when he first started talking with Liz, a lot about Lady Jane.

Yes, refreshing without Sonny and Jason hogging the screen, I think they need a vacation. There are so many good characters to take over.

I wonder if they will hold back on revealing how johnny knows - how do you know? what does it matter how I know, just that I know type of thing - and then we find out that the mind control people knew from heather or programmed heather to somehow snatch victors baby (if victor turns out to also be held at ferncliff)? (maybe she called them and said I have a baby here to sell you type of thing). It would allow heather to come back to the canvas if we learn she was programmed to kidnap luke, snatch the baby and to eliminate any threats to her mission like olivia if necessary and if johnny is also being controlled that would give him an out too. I would love to find out that johnny was under their influence and somehow was instructed to remove hope from the car before it went over.

Loved the scenes with sam and spinelli today. I love sam in determined mother mode and I cant wait for her to begin to piece together what happened in that shack. I wouldnt want to be todd when sam finds out because Im suspecting she just might go all cassadine on his ass when she does find out the truth.

Patrick thinking Ewan is a good guy? I'll give him a pass because hes grieving and all messed up on the drugs, but once again Liz is a dope. I wonder if ewan turns out to be a faison or jax whether they might go with her having a child with him - if she sleeps with jason and ewan at the same time, I will be smelling a wtd story in the making.

I SOOOO wanted to scream when Anna kept walking by room 16 though i was annoyed that she didnt clue in that a Nurse Fletcher might not be the person to trust given what heather told her - that obviously if Robin was alive she had been snatched by evil doers for a purpose and that the nurse "treating" her (according to heather fletcher was treating her) would have to almost certainly be in on the plan. Now if there is a god of soaps please let JFP fire genie and tristan so they can come home and be a part of this story. And yes, why didnt they have anna involving mac even if it was a throw away line of having her say to luke i didnt call him because i didnt want to get his hopes up or i didnt involve mac and flea because i thought they would try to talk me out of it - anything that explained why she wouldnt do the obvious thing and partner up with her friends.

I hated watching tracy get her heart broken because luke doesnt deserve her, but Im hoping that scene is the basis for a later convo when he comes back post anna and says he went with her because he felt guilty over sending robert away when she needed him and because he couldnt look at tracy without feeling that he had so badly let her down. Im over luke with laura and I cant stand him being with anna - he simply belongs with the only woman that can understand and tolerate his narcissistic and cavalier ways. I can only surmise that tracy is putting up with him right now because she loves him, she knows he loves her and will come back and that the relationship with anna will be as inconsequential as all of his other dalliances. Im also hoping he cops to having been jealous about her marrying anthony because i definitely think there is a passive aggressiveness to his choice here and the fact that he keeps bringing up AZ knowing he was blackmailing her is either a justification for why he should get to break her heart (you were with someone else so now you can wait while im with someone else) or hes punishing her for not being available to him when he decided he was over killing jake.

What if Ewen, in conjunction with someone else, is protecting or trying to protect Robin from someone much worse?

But the Jerry Jax angle....yea...there's that. LOL

Love that Nurse Fletcher is a nod to Louise Fletcher, who played Nurse Ratchet in One Who Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest.

How exactly does this story make Liz a dope? She is having a conversation on the phone with a guy. She isnt watching him wheel Robin out of the hospital. They are not even in the same hospital. Anna was 5 feet from Robin and somehow Liz is the chump. Agenda much?

Some will just always hate. Liz could sit somewhere and read a book and she would do everything wrong. Sad but true.

It's just penis envy. Jason's penis would rather be with Liz than the other chick and it makes her FFs envious. Classic case. True story.

Actually I FLOVE Anna - as Ive said many times she is my ALL TIME favorite soap character EVER - and I mentioned that she too had moments of being a dope of late with the way they wrote her (trusting the nurse or even going back to the dogs barking and barking outside the shed and not going in). Fortunately they have had moments where she was written brilliantly to balance out the portrayal. In this case, I said Liz is a dope because she never seems to clue in shes dealing with someone that is shady whether it was ric lansing chaining a woman to a wall in her own home right under her nose to not realizing for the longest time that lucky was on pills to not seeing that she was pushing zander over the edge and now ewan. That to me is fairly dopey. I would also add that ethan was also dopey when it came to ewan because he should have wondered more about why he was keeping the LIW at Wyndemere. Aside from liz, patrick and ethan, not many characters have been shown to have much interaction with ewan which is why i suspect he hasnt yet raised doubts in anyone. Conversely i like that they are writing spin and sam as being suspicious of todd and heather with out much to go on but instinct.

Oh and if I had an agenda why is that but two sentences in my entire post. In fact, most of my post was about anna, tracy and johnny.

The Evil Nurse is one of my favorite archetypes, so I loved the Nurse Ratchet nod, too. I like Ewan, so I'm glad they are making him a bad guy, but I hope they redeem him. I also wondered if he was doing a roundabout job of protecting robin.

How is Liz suppose to know that Ewen is shady when he has been nothing but kind and professional? Ewen helped her deal with Cam after Lucky ran off to cry in Ireland. He saved her life and she saved his. At no point was it ever shown until Thursday's cliff hanger that Ewen was a bad dude. Heck, Patrick and Steven think the guy walks on water and are actively pushing Liz to date the man. I guess this means Patrick and Steven are a bunch of dopes?

Well lets put it this way i thought something was fishy about ewan from the jump - all the way back to letting his amnesiac patient appropriate a house that wasnt hers so maybe i think liz is just a dope compared to me. lol. And yes patrick IS on dope and steven is a moron. I would also argue that patrick and steve are less vested in liz dating ewan than the are in keeping her from hanging around with a married man who happens to be a hit man. Compared to Jason I suppose they might STILL think ewan is the bomb. Wink

Oh and doodle, i will believe jasons pee pee prefers lizards rent a vajay jay more than sams enchanted trail when I hear him say as much. What I do know is that both carly and steve believe jason hooks up with liz only when he fights with Sam and that while he usually cant keep his hands off sam he ran out on liz to tend to carlys crisis de jour back during the summer of sleaze when he hadnt been able to hook up with his girl in weeks. I would think if his ding dong was so hot for your ding dong of a gal, he would have let carly go cry in her beer at least until he had the time to flick her bic (the way apparently only nik could do, and if she believes that hes the only one who can get her across the finish line, I have to wonder how hot the jiz sex really could possibly be)

Awww...EET! Yet he always goes back for more. 15 years and counting. His conscience won't let him have her because he doesn't want his dirty dealings to taint her life so he keeps having to settle for second best. BUT THEN, like he always does, he allows himself to dream again. He lets down his guard for a little while and tries to go for the gold one more time...

Enchanted Trail? More like the Indentured Trench or "the town pump" I believe is how Tracy put it. That thing has been used to make more money than all the ELQ stocks put together. Please. Let's not put on airs about the pristine condition of Sam's Man Cave. It's a tourist trap that's seen more than it's fair share of foot traffic over the years.

Doodle like I said Ill believe it when i hear him say that and not just read it in some jiz fan fic. On the other hand I have heard jason say that hes never loved anyone the way he loves sam, I have heard him say that she made him happier than anyone did in his entire life and I heard him take vows - something he never did with liz.

I love tracy but tracy says a lot of things. look at the stuff she has said about anna and skye over the years. tracy didnt like that edward had taken a shine to sam when he is often brutal with her, it had nothing to do with anything else. In the last five years sams been with two men - lucky and jason. in that same time liz has been with jason, lucky, nicholas and if rumors are true ewan will make four. even if sam sleeps with mcbain that still makes liz 25% sluttier than sam in the here and now.

I love that picture, too. Old movies are my favorites so anything from that era fascinates me.

EET...blah, blah, blah. It's all logistics. My diagnosis...take 2 chill pills, an arm job and call me in the morning. I'm too tired to continue tonight.

First I love BB as Johnny.. Saying that I hate that people keep saying he killed that little girl.. He just isn't a bad guy to me- ever since he appeared he was always trying to be a better person. So these actions on his part I just don't buy. I really hope they start to do him some justice..

I have just been adoring JT!! I loved his converstion with Liz because it was just great dialogue. Him admitting he hates Jason and that can cloud his vision of how he see's her interactions with him. Bringing up how both her and Robin had a soft spot for him. Liz holding her ground about how she doesn't have to justify her choices- but still being there for him. I truly love what he said though because it is how I see Jason and Liz right now. Currently I see nothing romantic coming from Jason- he is usually just running into her on accident. He is very clear that he is in love with Sam- just like the SOS. I know she is his friend but she should think of herself first and make choices on whats best for herself. Not blow off decent guys to be his rebound girl. Before I get attacked let me be honest I don't think she is being romantic with Jason at all- but I get what Patricks point was. For all they know Ewan is a great guy- (except for all that staring at a ceiling thing)and he just wants her to see it.

My thing is I just want a good story- more than that if you can give me something I hate and make me love it well even better. That is why I can never buy Liason- during the SOS I hated it because of what they were doing to Sam. More than that it never made sense because of what I was seeing and hearing from Jason. The same holds true this time- there is no way they are writing Jason that shows me he could be in love with Liz. With the tired excuse I always hear that Liz was just to good for him- I have to say that that holds no water for me at all. The fact is we all know Jason loves children more than anything- he always protects them first and foremost. He agreed he wanted children with Sam before they were married- then tried to have them after. He was willing to put a ring on it and have a baby with her. The fact is you could be the biggest Jasam hater and say he is with her because it's easy. However I would say that could only be true if he didn't agree he wanted a family with her and bring a child into their home. To me Sam will always be the love of Jason's life and I still hope to see them have the baby visiting with the Q's.. Mostly because I love the Q's and Sam is the only female in Jason's life that cares at all about making sure they have contact with their grandchildren.. Neither Carly or Liz ever cared how much the children would mean to Monica and Edward.. So yeah my greatest hope is that by next year I will see the Morgan family having a family dinner with Edward, Monica and pleeeaaassse Alan!!!
