General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Dante wonders if Lulu feels like they have no future together, but Lulu feels she just had a crisis of conscience because they were fighting all the time.  She felt she was being a bad wife and that the PCPD just isn’t her. She says Heather’s letter pushed her buttons. Dante assures her that he wants to know her feelings and asks if he’s smothering her, which Lulu denies.  Lulu says she’s been measuring her life against a history she isn’t part of and thinks love equals adventure.  She says she cares about the club. Dante hopes that Johnny has changed. He admits he was jealous and wants to make it up to her.

Dante says he’ll support Lulu through all her plans and is willing to work on their marriage.  Lulu apologizes for not telling him about the deal with Johnny, the expensive dress and that they don’t mean anything if they aren’t together. Lulu admits that the word forever scares her. Dante wants her to take the leap of faith. He’ll feel the same about her in fifty years that he does now. 

Liz overhears part of Ewen’s phone conversation about working with someone, but he deflects that he’s treating a celebrity and needs to be discreet.  She asks about Patrick. Ewen explains the withdrawals, how unfair it is that Robin is gone and that Patrick needs to learn how to cope.  Ewen asks Liz to lunch and she accepts. 

Sam lets Alexis in on the reality show being done, but that Kristina has feelings for Trey. Sam isn’t sure he doesn’t have ulterior motives.  Sam mentions Kris’ concerns for her and Jason. Alexis says she was happy with Jason until he failed to give Sam support. She wonders where they stand.  Sam says there is a distance between them and explains what happened with John and Liz.  

Sam’s upset because Jason and Liz shared a child and have a connection.  Alexis asks if she wants a divorce, but Sam hasn’t thought about that yet.  She’s trying to find a way to forgive Jason, but part of her still blames him and deep down can’t forgive.  Alexis tells her that she needs to let go, but Sam’s too confused to make a decision. Alexis jokingly tells Sam that she’ll represent her in the divorce for free. The two say I love you before Alexis leaves. 

Sonny lets Jason in on his visit with Joe and how Joe was making statements about the kids. Sonny wants to beef up security.  Jason asks if he wants a background check on Trey. However, Sonny says the show is over and that Kris mentioned being worried about JaSam.  Jason says Sam can’t get past what happened and he’s tried to reach out. 

Liz and Ewen show up and Liz introduces Ewen to Sonny and Jason. Sonny is confused, since he already knows Ewen.  Sonny wonders what’s going on, so Jason explains about kissing Liz and that he doesn’t want to hurt either Liz or Sam.   Sonny points out that Jason needs to make a decision and call it quits now for everyone’s sake.  Jason doesn’t want a divorce, but won’t fight it if it’s what Sam wants.  Sonny tells him to figure out what will cause the least damage. 

Liz is concentrating on Jason then apologizes for it.  Ewen understands that she still cares for Jason, even though they’re not together.  

Trey and Kristina kiss. He wants to continue in the bedroom, but instead she explains about Kiefer, his abuse and putting her in the hospital.  Kris says she hasn’t been serious with anyone since, but felt Trey had a right to know.  Trey swears he would never hurt her.  Kristina says she isn’t ready to sleep with him, because she needs time to feel safe with him. She says she will understand if he calls it all off. 

Trey reassures her that they’ll take it as slow as she needs to, which thrills Kristina.  After she leaves, he calls his father to say that he doesn’t want to use Kristina. However, he ultimately agrees to do what Joe wants him to.

Loved, loved, loved the Alexis/Sam scenes. Well acted on both parts and there's always something very realistic mother/daughter between KeMo and NLG.

Loved, loved, loved the Lante reconciliation and I hope it sticks. And I hope we see more of them together than we have the past few months.

Kristina/Trey: Wasn't feeling her emotions when talking about Keifer. Maybe because I know it wasn't her but Lexi. Trey seemed less skeevy with her today than yesterday, even during the phone call where he really wanted to do the right thing but was being forced by his father not to.

Liz/Ewen: If they're going to have them dating, then do it full force. None of this passive aggressive looking at Jason while she's on her date crap.

the Alexis/Sam scenes are too forced. their mom/daughter relationship is too forced and IT SHOWS. time to remove Sam as Alexis daughter.

what's with all the Jason/Liz talk today? JIZ is over! JIZ is no more!

this week has been a major bore-fest but thankfully tomorrow it looks like Todd will be back so it won't be a complete waste.

Uh perkie why no mention of Jason watching Liz throughout her date with Ewen? Seems he did just as much, if not more staring of her than she did of him, especially when Ewen reached for Liz's hand.

Poor Ewen. Even though I know he's got Robin (but I think he's being coerced into what he's doing), I still felt sorry for him today. That's all I'm going to say about that mess today, since I'm sure the Liz vs Sam war will rage on today.

I liked Sam and Alexis's scenes.

Seemed like there was a sometimes love is not enough theme being forced on us today. Granted, I want Sam to divorce Jason, find her son, name him Daniel after the brother that she loved, find herself a nice little house of her own, and have some hot smoking sex with McBain on the side. I doubt that will all happen though because I don't get the couples I want, and I'm afraid we're going to get MA after December like people have been saying after the PP deal timeline is officially over. I didn't mind Jolie version one or two, but it got old and stale after that, and I'd rather not see Natalie on GH.

After Alexis found out about the Sam/McBain smooch, she should have walked away, but not before reminding her grown azz daughter how she slept with Ric and Lucky, and is now playing tonsil hockey with Natalie's man. I just don't buy Alexis as Sam's mother when I thought she gave birth to a boy?

Liason. Sigh. Jason needs to stop the whining and tell Diane to start those divorce papers. However, it was nice to see Sam and Sonny both acknowledge that Liason have a long history and a connection besides Jake.

Sonny made me laugh for the first time in years, as he sat in Jake's (I just can not call that place the Floating Rib) and gave out his own love advice to Jason.

Jason: Sam kissed McBain.

Sonny: Sam kissed McBain? Divorce her, now! Pull the plug. Rip off the band-aid!

Bummer. I was really hoping that Lulu and Johnny would hit the sheets, the desk or floor at the Haunted Star, but it looks like she's still with Dante.

WTH is up with Krissy? She throws herself at Trey and now she's acting all gun shy and coy when the guy decides to give her a whirl?

Ewen is smoking. I wanted Liz to spend more time with Ewen until Jason gets his act together, but it was all kinds of awesome that Jason kept sneaking peeks over at Liz while she kept sneaking peeks over at him. Liason is just so pretty!

Sad to say but can't wait for the Olympics to be over so the writers at GH will go back to storytelling, instead of story-retelling like we're being subjected to this week, i.e. Sonny telling Jason what going on with Kate, Jason telling Sonny what's going on with Sam, Sam telling Alexis what's going on with Jason, and so on and so on. Sigh, we're most likely looking at another boring week next week until the Olympics finished up before we start to see something worth not nodding off to on GH. Thankfully last week had to me glued day after day after day.

As a good viewer I had this playing but had a play date going on and didn't get to watch. I am however excited to turn it on now and watch my Sam and Alexis. Sorry- but I adore them together. I think they have fantastic chemistry. They are all sorts of awesome..

Love this site. listen to the podcast so now I want to post some comments

First...what the freak is Sonny doing at the Floating Rib?!? Drinking beer??? Where was Mac? Him and his tight shirt and muscles was just there now they are gone? Is GH like Y&R, only show Black characters on the 1st and 15th?

I like Alexis/Sam chemistry but I still do not believe them as mother/daughter. I have never liked that stupid angle and believe there is more story with Sam finding out Alexis isn't her mother and also finding out who her father is. They need to flesh out Sam's character.

I LOVED when Jason was staring at Liz while she was holding Ewen's hand and Jason tried to change the subject when Sonny noticed it. Although I loved that scene, I hated how Liz kept looking at Jason. I like that Liason has history but I can't take Liz chasing Jason or being his cheerleader. Liz does great when dealing with a guilt-ridden bad guy. Liz/Ric was epic. They need to give the actor who plays Ewen an acting coach to help him with his flow. He doesn't know how to transition between scenes and sometimes he seems uncomfortable.

The whole Sonny/Kate/Kristina/Trey/Joe Jr is so boring. I know MB and his fans has to be bored of this stuff. It's the same ole same ole. Also for Joe Jr to be so awful, he raised a good son who was going to Harvard and never got shot in the head!

This is the second day in a row that there were no OLTL characters. I'm sick of all of these GH characters pushing my OLTL stars off the screen.

Deuche and Trey are the vortex of suck and they are pulling all the life out of GH. They need to be gone, taking Skannie with them!

Watching NuKristina attempt to cry was so painful. I've been willing to give her a chance, as I felt she had very big shoes to fill, but yesterday's episode sealed the deal for me: she's just not very good. I suppose she can improve, but I remember LA crying on cue from the very first moment her character had to cry. I had a hard time watching those Krissy/Trey scenes because Krissy looked like she was scrunching up her face, TRYING to cry, instead of the tears coming naturally.

OTOH, I thought the Lante scenes were excellent. Wonderful acting, and the argument felt very real and natural.

Can't wait for McBain to return! I need some McBam action!

It was a great episode about relationships. Very well acted by almost everyone.

Even though I'm starting to like Trey, I can't say the same thing about NuKristina. Her talking about Kiefer made me just wish that Lexi Ainsworth was still playing the part. Then Kristina could have flashbacks. Not to mention that LA could have sold those scene. Lindsey Morgan couldn't.

I thought Lulu and Dante's conversation about their marriage and Lulu's insecurity was amazing. I'm not even a fan of this couple but it was just brilliantly written, well acted and realistic drama. I was impressed!

I actually thought that Sam's talk with Alexis together with Liz and Jason constantly looking at each other was the weakest link of the episode.
While I enjoyed some mother-daughter time between Alexis and Sam I didn't feel the need at this point to tell her about the kisses too. The same goes for Jason and Sonny. Jason just talked to Carly about the kiss with Elizabeth. If there was some new development I would have said fine but this way it felt like a repeat.

And I'm sorry, as much as I do like Liason, Liz and Jason looking at each other was ridiculous. Liz/Ewen and Jason/Sonny practically sat next to each other which made the situation more than weird. It's been a while since I've seen a scene that looked so uncomfortable. And it wasn't the situation itself.

I am also biased to the oltl characters. I also think that some have been assimilated smoothly.

I think when I started watching GH was when they made Alexis/Sam mother/daughter. That was not that long ago. I just thought another soap kid showing up. No big deal.

Actress playing LuLu is different. I am sure it has to reflect some of her off screen personality. I am talking the lay back nature. Different.

Don't care who Jason is with so I will move on.

We need a good Friday cliffhanger.

In Kristina's defence, as recently as "yesterday" Trey was saying no thanks, lets keep it professional and now he's all, let's play tonsil hockey in the bedroom. I don't think she'd even thought that far ahead because in her scenes with Sam and Sonny from earlier she was still playing it innocent, like, Ooooooh he's so dreamy, I'm drawing hearts on my binder, kind of thing.

I loved the Liason scenes (please try to control your shock Wink )and thought Rh looked gorgeous in that red top. I loved the way Sonny called Jason out on his connection to Liz, and how at one point Jason was outright staring at Liz and Ewen holding hands and Sonny had to say "Jaasssooon" to get his attention back to their conversation. Liz did look a few times at Jason, but by the end she seemed to be paying full attention to Ewen.

I don't buy Sam and Alexis as mother and daughter. I really don't buy Sam unloading on her mom about cheating on Jason considering Sam's history with Alexis and Ric. I did find it amusing how, yet again, Sam didn't own what she did and proceeded to minimize her wrongdoing. She actually said about her kiss with McBain "well, if you can even call it wrong". Yes, Sam, I call kissing one man while you are married to another man wrong. I also call Jason kissing Liz while he is married wrong. I also call McBain kissing Sam while in a relationship with Natalie wrong. And again with the booze? Neither one of them appeared even close to drunk. If they were supposed to come off either buzzed or drunk, they are both horrible actors.

I wanted more Mac today as well. He is one smoking hot man!

NuKristina is awful at emotional scenes. She needs some practice and some acting classes. I think she has the ability to improve with training.

I like Lindsey Morgan and think she is gorgeous. I thought Lexi looked too young and cant imagine her in the this storyline. Looking young is a great thing in Hollywood and in life but I found it distracting in the role. I think it's difficult to judge the acting when the writing for a character is one note and she is in a terrible storyline.

WHERE is Felicia? Why aren't they showing Felicia and Mac together? Love that he is working at hte FLoating Rib.
Nu-Krissy has to go.....she is just not up to par with the others - I can tell she is acting.....I know they will eventually get Trey and Star together....

it's ridiculous that Ewen took Robin, too....unless it is Faison, which means Ewen worked with Faison and Helena....interesting that he told Patrick he lost someone once and couldn't get passed it - who I wonder
..it's like 8th graders are writing that plot.....

is Johnny dying or not?

All Lexi did in the role was cry over everything. She couldn't do much beyond crying well except being smug. I remember because I grew as sick of Kristina's tears a sI had after years of Theresa Lopez Fitzgerald's tears.

Yesterday was awful. I could not for the life of me figure out what Lulu was screeching to Dante about. How did that fight start?

I never bought Sam and Alexis as mother/daughter and still don't. Please let Alexis go find her real daughter and drop Sam.

I really hate that Mac is wasting time working at Jakes. Just like I hate that Sean is wiping tables at Kellys.

Liz looked pretty in red.

Why was Sonny at Jakes? He hates that place!

Loved Sam and Alexis's talk!!! They have such great chemistry together as mother and daughter and I love that Alexis is supporting her daughter 100%!!!

Nice scenes with Dante and Lulu. Enjoyed seeing them have an actual conversation where we learned both sides point of view.

The Trey and Kristina scenes were boring.

Jason is a schmuck!!

Love how nice everyone is dressing these days!

LOL at the haters busting on the awesome mom daughter connection between alexis and sam. Maybe its because as its been written few of the other ladies in town have moms who could care less. Hell liz's mom hasnt even laid eyeballs on her in 20 years. Bobbie hardly sees carly from what weve been told and shown, flea ran out on maxie, laura hasnt been back from europe since she pulled out of a coma, momma's falconari couldnt be bothered with liv and/or kate etc. etc. I think the other thing that irks folks is that it makes sam part of a main family - not unlike robin, carly, alexis and liz. I think the haters want to think of her as some second class citizen - sniff sniff shes not REALLY a Cassadine so shes NOT from a core family.

I liked the lante scenes. this is how this couple should be written - they have always had the chemistry and it works when they arent writing dante like sonny jr.

Love people enjoying sonny saying cut bait - the same sonny who barely washes the sheets and empties the tub before hes got the replacement in line using the EXACT same lines/moves/moments on each. but what I FLOVED about that scene was Sonny busting lizard for her passive aggressive tactics - so she brings ewan over here to introduce him, was that for YOUR benefit? Um yes, Sonny it WAS for Jasons benefit as was sitting in proximity to the two of you while on her "date". How do we know this is her MO....well run the footage because i think we saw her pull this move with nik when she was trying to make lucky jealous when he was in to rebecca and i think we saw this move again when she was trying to get niks attention when he was in to brooklyn. And when left to his own devices on wed. epi who was he thinking about - SAM. No, jason doesnt want liz moving on and yes he seemed jealous but thats because a guy wants his back up choice to remain free and available to him until he decides what hes going to do with his first choice. Really i think they should just put sonny and liz together because the both need new moves, they both are fertile myrtles who still havent figured out birth control, they both think they are totally justified in everything they do, and they both think nothing of using one person to get a rise out of another without thought for either persons feelings.

Im willing to give nuK a chance because I think she has potential, i think shes been put in a dog of a story and she is a corinthos davis cassadine, but treys gotta go. Why not put her with johnny after the docs find a brain tumor or a mind control device (to explain his bad behavior) Or better yet get nathan parsons to return.

1 other thought - i totally agree about rebecca looking great in red. i think reddish/cranberry colors suit her way more than the blues and greens they typically put her in.

I can only speak for myself, but I really don't give a crap whether or not Sam is connected to a family. I don't think she and Alexis are believable as mom/daughter. I don't like any of Alexis' daughters. I love Alexis and I think she deserves a lot better than having a former prostitute/con-artist (Sam), a spoiled, self-centered twit daughter (Kristina), and an obnoxious know-it-all (Molly) for her daughters. Weirdly, when they are all together, I do enjoy Davis girls scenes in a women-bonding kind of way.

And as for when Sonny asked if bringing Ewen over was for Jason's benefit, Jason clearly shot that down when he said he had already met Ewen. I think it was just an awkward moment because of Liason's recent kiss.

Nah, they should just return to Sam and Sonny. After all the sexing they did and Sam being preggars with Sonny's spawn - they need another chance to make it work.

Aww cmon siz fans have been waiting for the sizzle for 20 years - ever since liz showed up on sonny's doorstep pretending to be all interested in jason just trying to get close to mr. dimples. If it werent for Anne Sweeney and her agenda HWs would have let their love blossom and by now we would have so much great story - siz love baby number one battling michael for control of the mob while cameron, now grown, took on sonny in an attempt save his brother from the mob life. True siz fans know that liz and sonny's love is marked by her wearing red shirts and until they brought on cartini tptb were too afraid to even let liz wear red around sonny lest the fans demand their pairing be given a shot. if only they had been allowed to go forward think about all those unwanted pregnancies that could have been diverted - no misc. sonny babies, no misc. liz babies just sizzle babies and maybe sonny could leave the mob to manage the new corinthos five pop singing sensation.

for all those reasons and many more the time is right for siz. im sure he has a pair of black sheets just waiting for liz to slip in between. In fact, all the better if they do it as a flash back - lets see them having had a ONS ten years ago right around the time cam was conceived!
