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.

What an exciting week on GH!!! Beer

I thought Ewen was creepy from the first time I saw him. I think he could be a Jax since he seemed very familiar with their family when speaking to Elizabeth about them and he is from Australia. On the other hand, he did work in a tunnel ridden castle with Helena lurking around and lived to see another day, even though his patient/Helena’s daughter was unceremoniously murdered. So maybe he’s connected to Helena. Or both.

Loved Anna’s determination to find Robin and for listening to her gut instincts telling her that there may be something more to Heather’s machinations along with finding the pamphlet that solidified the idea for her!!! Hopefully after Luke recovers and is off the morphine, his own instincts will kick in and he’ll help her look for Robin!! Loved that Robin heard Anna searching for her and said mom. That should give her some strength to hang on!

Loved watching Sam search Todd’s office while putting together the pieces of the puzzle!!! She is one smart cookie as Spinelli’s alter ego would say! She’s on to Todd and Heather and she knows it has to do with her!! Her instincts are driving her in the right direction and I can’t wait until she learns their secret is that her baby son is alive and well and is Jason’s biological child!!! I really enjoyed watching Spinelli help with her case while gently offering a little marriage counseling on the side!

Enjoyed all of Patrick’s scenes!! I’m glad that he is finally starting to tell people about his drug problem and his depression. The more people that know the truth, the more people that will be there to support him and help him through it.

Loved the Luke and Tracy scenes!! A conversation filled with wit and vitriol. Luke and Tracy are perfect for each other and it’s clear as day that they still deeply love one another!!

Todd versus Johnny... Two murdering, raping, self-deprecating, angry men threatening each other!! One who’s enraged, lonely and has no conscience and one who is guilt ridden, agonized and determined not to lose what little he feels he has left. A volatile combination of testosterone and desperation!

What a week!!! Party

I like Sam with John so much better than her and Jason. Sam and John they are great together so much chemistry. Jason needs to get back to being a hit man.

Sam and John do have TONS of chemistry. For me the triangle reminds me of jax/brenda/sonny - awesome gal torn between the sweet good guy who pours his heart out to her and the bad boy with whom she has tons of history and tons of heat. It will be interesting to see where this goes because i think theres more passion between john and sam than there was between brenda and jax and if jason continues to dally with liz it will feel like a bigger violation than sonny leaving brenda in the rain, so who knows which pair i might ship in the end.

Sassy - i have to disagree with one thing in your post. I actually think todd does have a conscience. he just is desperate to be loved and he does bad things to that end.

EET - I would like to believe that about Todd but where was his conscience when he gang raped Marty? Or when he threatened to rape Nora? Where was his conscience when he paid Tea to marry him so he could get custody of Starr away from Blair? Or when he sold baby Jack on the black market and allowed Blair to think her child was dead? Where was his conscience when he killed Victor (his brother and Tea's husband) in cold blood? Or when he agreed to switch Sam's baby with Tea's, allowing Sam to believe her child had died? And these are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the evil things Todd has done. What conscience?

This is a 6 minute video of AWESOME scenes between Anna and Heather that were CUT OUT of the scenes we saw on GH last week!

In the interrogation room, Anna demanded to know why Heather had been so cruel as to tell her that Robin was alive. Anna wanted proof of Heather's claim. Heather reminded Anna that Anna had initially refused to hear her out, because Anna had been focused on listing Heather's crimes. Anna argued that Heather had killed Maggie, had nearly killed Luke, and had harmed Olivia. Heather was confident that Olivia would be fine.

Obviously todd is capable of great evil but we have seen him on oltl struggle greatly with what he did to marty and in fact he pretty much sacrificed everything of value to him to attempt to atone for what he did to her when he risked his life for her in ireland. Even with that, I believe his words to her were something along the lines of nothing he could ever do could make up for what he did to her - i dont think a guy who completely lacked a conscience would say and do all that. I dont think what he did with tea was necessarily evil, he loved starr and wanted full custody, something plenty of parents unfortunately do when they go through a divorce. I think too, there, it was his love for starr and the thin line between love and hate with blair that drove him to it. The Jack thing again evil - every bit as evil as the rape - but much like the sam baby thing it was todd acting on emotion and his love for someone that drove him there and the second he did it he regretted it. With sam, i would add that absent heather whispering in his ear i dont think he would have gone there. I see that regret as conscience. As for Victor - well he didnt really kill victor so that doesnt go on his list - but victor had no sense of compromise or decency imho when he found out he had basically been living todds life. a decent man would have tried to get to know his brother and would have tried to divide up the assets in some way. I also think victor could have helped facilitate things with jack. If we are going to evaluate which man is worse, I actually think victor has less of a conscience given that he was going to steal starrs baby and he essentially raped marty when he believed he was todd and that she wouldnt have given him informed consent. Watching the tale of two todds - knowing that victor had hurt blair, seeing the chaos his children were in with jack facing jail for gigis "death"/shane's bullying and cole in jail too, victors lack of compromise and the vitriol he spit at todd and the sense that maybe he went along with his mothers plan and factoring in all the years of torture todd endured at irenes hands I sort of think todd gets a pass for killing irene and wanting to kill tomas and victor.

Oddly enough I didn't mention Todd killing Irene (his mother) since I think it was justified. Nor did I mention kidnapping Tomas for the very same reason. But Victor isn't on GH so can't be blamed for anything Todd has done since he thought he killed him. And he isn't the one who originally raped Marty and did all the things that I listed prior to Victor ever coming to town, so I don't think blaming Victor for Todd's behavior is an acceptable excuse. Almost everything Victor did was wrong and perhaps even evil, but as we teach our children, two wrongs don't make a right. Todd is equally as evil as his twin brother in my opinion and I can only hope that he does have a conscience and it propels him to correct the crime he's currently perpetrated!

Thanks for the link! I had to go watch it as soon as I saw it. I love Anna, and while I'm all about Anna being written strong, I don't like her pulling the gun out and making threats when we've had scenes of her having meetings telling the cops to do their jobs correctly, trying to find moles in the department, and hauling Jason in and giving him a heads up about how she won't look the other way. It just makes her look bad, and I wish they would've done something different.

I thought some of you might enjoy the scene from All My Children when Anna and Robin reunite after years of Anna's presumed death!

I think those missing scenes of Anna & Heather were cut because of the Colorado shootings, but were shown on abc.com. Great scenes...it shows WHY Heather gave in so quickly & told Anna about Robin.

I know this is way off topic but can someone clue me in on something- is Jack Manning Todd and Blairs son? Also is he the one that was some sort of bully- locked up that Gigi girl and she "died"???

The last actor that played Jack was HORRIBLE, and universally panned by all....Probably one of the worst young actors, I have ever seen on a soap. The young actor that played Jack before he was sorased...was actually quite good, and comedic.... at least in my opinion. But the character of Jack has always been played as spoiled brat who feels entitled. In other words a chip off the old block.... Todd Jr.

GHFan777..I agree with most of your assessment of Jack Manning...except the last part..Jack was played as a spoiled, entitled bully by this last actor,Andrew Triscitta(sp). A chip off the old block, the man who raised him, Victor Lord Jr.

Thanks so much for the Jack answers. Not a spoiler but if Blair and Todd are gonna be in PC I was thinking it was not long until he joined them. All I knew about the kid was what little I had read about what he did to Gigi last year. I don't mind OLTL characters coming- but it is hard for me when they all share scenes and talk about a shared past that I am clueless over. Maybe I am the only GH fan who is a GH only soap fan who knows...
