General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Alexis reminds Jerry that he’s supposed to be dead. He jokes that he’s a strong swimmer and wants to catch up on their lives. Jerry says he cares about her, which Alexis finds odd since he likes to hurt those she loves. She says she loathes him. However,  Jerry thinks she’s lying and really wants him. Alexis slaps Jerry and says there is no goodness in him. She points out that there’s still a warrant out for his arrest and wants to call the police. Her phone doesn’t work. Jerry admits he moved the satellite.

Jason demands to know what’s going on, since he thought John was gone. Sam explains about the picture and that Alexis is representing John. Sam again says the kiss didn’t mean anything. John decides to leave them to work things out. However, before he leaves Sam warns him not to do anything to violate the restraining order and make things worse.

Sam asks what Jason wants. He admits that things keep getting in the way of their reunion. Sam admits she still loves him, but doesn’t think it’s enough anymore. Jason says he’ll put his ring back on if she wants. He knows he hurt her by not accepting the baby soon enough. He swears he never wanted the baby gone. He wants the old feelings back and asks if Sam can forgive him.

Sam isn’t sure if she can. The pain is still fresh and will likely never go away. She blames him and always will. Sam thinks it would be different if they baby had lived. She says she won’t turn her back on John, since he’s in this mess because of her and she won’t let him lose his child. Sam asks if Jason can accept John in her life and he doesn’t know.

Dante and Kate question Ewen about Olivia’s episodes. He assures them that they are likely acid flashbacks and will get less frequent over time. Ewen tells them to keep doing what they have been. Kate sends Dante off and talks to Ewen about not being fully integrated yet because she still hasn’t remembered shooting out the tires. She wonders if she’s a danger to Sonny, but Ewen feels that Connie is no longer a threat.

Lulu says she isn’t pregnant because they’ve been using protection, but Maxie wants her to find out for sure. Lulu heads off to find a washroom but runs into Dante. Maxie deflects his curiosity and after he’s gone, she tells Lulu to have a conversation with her husband about having a family.

Johnny tells Carly about his visit with Joe, who wants to bring Sonny to his knees and wants Johnny’s help. Johnny tells her that he turned it down, that he’s through with that life and isn’t risking losing her. Carly’s proud of Johnny and glad that she doesn’t have to worry about her kids anymore. Carly brings Josslyn up for a nap and the two decide to have their own afternoon delight.

Joe’s angry when he sees the marks on Trey’s face and swears Sonny will pay for it. Trey tries to reassure his father that it was a friendly boxing match and it got on Kristina’s good side as well. Joe wants to know when the wedding is set for. Trey complains that it’s too soon and he wants to take things slow. Joe continues to insist that Trey needs to be married before Sonny finds out the truth or that Sonny will come after him when he’s let out. Trey agrees to find a way to propose. Joe promises they’ll do something good with the money when they get it.

Sonny wants advice from Kristina and shows her an engagement ring. He says he’s going to propose to Kate. Kris reminds him that Kate was shot the last time. She wonders if she is strong enough to handle something like this. Sonny says they’re working on their issues. Kris says she’s happy for him. Sonny’s glad they aren’t fighting anymore.

John runs into them and Kristina warns him away from JaSam. John swears he has no intention of getting between them. Sonny complains that the DA in Atlantic City is dragging his heels and that no one gets what they want if Joe walks. John asks if Sonny is going after Joe and Sonny mentions Joe’s threat about the kids. John says Sonny can have Joe if he gets off.

Sonny runs into Kate and says he has a surprise for her. Ewen lets himself into Carly’s house. Sam and Jason realize they need to divorce. Alexis finds the doors locked when she tries to make a run for it. Jerry grabs her and chloroforms her.

I know I shouldn’t bag on an actor’s physical attributes but I hate the way Joe Scully Jr talks. It’s called enunciation, look it up.

So, Ewen just strolls into Carly’s house, no fuss, no security?

Alexis, I love you dearly, but why didn’t you pick up any number of heavy objects in that room and either hurl them at Jerry himself or through the window panes of the balcony door.

I miss original recipe Josslyn with her funny pyjamas and her sucking on teddy bear arms. This one is too old and too blonde.

Was it just me or was it weird to anyone else that John and Sonny were dressed exactly alike, with the black shirt under the black suit.

Why do people feel the need to tell psychopaths what they're going to do? Olivia wiht Heather. Ewen with Jerry. And now Alexis with Jerry. Just pacify the crazy person and take the first opportunity to get out of dodge and head to the police station.

I really hate this balless Sonny who does nothing but give out advice and seem like the best father/boyfriend eve rwhen he's really a horrible person who has yet to pay for anything. Nice whitewash Cartooni!

Sonny talking about proposing to Kate a woman he has no chemistry with. Yet the only woman who Sonny has sexual chemistry with is the chick playing his daughter! Very very odd. Reminds me of Joseph Cotten and Teresa Wright's chemistry in Shadow of a Doubt and they were suppose to be neice and uncle but they had big time sexual chemistry.

So glad John never told Jason he regretted that kiss. So glad.

I also don't understand Alexis not grabbing something. But I really don't understand her being locked in a room in Wyndermere. Don't they have like a billion secret rooms. Alexis should have found one of those rooms and escaped. Writers need to remember, she is a Cassadine. She was raised as their cousin. I remember a story Alexis told Stefan about how he pushed her into a river or something and she was drowning but he wouldn't jump in a save her because he wanted her to learn to fight for herself. Where is that Alexis! The gatekeeper of the family has to know how to fight.

After months of watching Sean be the bodyguard for Carly and Josslyn, Carly still doesn't have a security system! Hasn't she seen those ADT commercials?

Please don't let Lulu be pregnant. In months she went from working in the police file room, becoming a sort of cop, club runner and now they are going to make her pregnant?! NOOOO Please don't.

I wish all the Brooklyn bunch would go back, Joe Jr, Kate, Olivia and Dante. We need Johnny/Lulu back together. At least she inspired him to write music.

No Todd? JaSam's talk was boring. The fact that Jason still keeps saying "your baby" just makes all his apologies fall flat. When you marry, "I" and "me" goes away, it's us and we. Jason should have said our baby. He's just all talk when it comes to Sam. After everything that woman when through because of him, he still says your baby.

logan...I feel the same way. I find Sonny and Kristina's scenes so uncomfortable to watch. Their chemistry is totally sexual...I don't see how the show can't see it...it is so obvious...I don't care about the age difference involved...It comes across totally incestuous.

Loved that John would not tell Jason that the kiss did not mean anything...looking forward to McBam...as they do have fantastic chemistry.

I thought Carly and Johnny talking mob business in front of Josslyn was wrong also. Kids hear everything...whether you think they understand or not. I can't wait for them to end also, and Todd and Carly to begin.

I too am curious for a Todd/Carly matchup on GH but wouldn't it also be nice if this time around, in bringing Ingo back, that Jax and Carly could share some screen time ...and *gasp* reconcile? She hasn't signed those divorce papers after all. I know I'm wishing for a lot here but since GH has brought Ingo back for a third time since they handed him his walking papers last year it would be nice to see him interact with Carly (and others) instead of hiding in the shadows.

Cartini: please find Jax's spine and return it to his core character. Thanx.

@Clifford: ITA! I really want CarJax back, but I want CARLY to be the one who pursues HIM! And I want Jax to come back 'super bad ass corporate raider' style and bankrupt (or come really close) Sonny for trying to kill him.

Oh, and I also want Morgan to come back a Jacks (i.e. hating Sonny, but this time I want it to stick... *cough*Dante,Kristina*cough*).

LuLy being pregnant as this junction (and because of the dumb spoilers, we know she is) is so CLICHE. Is there no other way to create tension in the Lante marriage?

We already know LuLu does not want a child right now. What is she going to do, have another abortion?

Sonny, why all the teenage excitement about asking Kate to marry you? It's not like it is the first time.

@holdingon: Cartooni is so appropriate for these idiots. No wonder the ratings just float in the toilet.

So a Spencer/Corrinthos baby might be on the way! Hopefully this child will be allowed to go home with its parents and be happy for a little while!!

Alexis is a Cassadine for heaven's sake! She couldn't throw a vase or a lamp or a gargoyle at Jerry's head or at the glass door? She couldn't kick Jerry in the balls or try to throw a punch? And they expect us to believe that Jerry actually moved a satellite? Really?

Ewen was able to walk right in through Carly's front door! Carly is still connected to the Corrinthos crime family and now the Zaccara crime family, lives in a upscale home and yet doesn't even have an alarm system. And as a parent of a young child (other than Elizabeth), who doesn't lock their front door these days?

I'm so tired of the writers leaving out all the little important details that lend credibility to the story because clearly they don't respect, appreciate or acknowledge the GH viewers intelligence! This is NOT a good start to what looks like another disgusting evil terrorist Jerry Jacks storyline!!! Tired Sick Evil

My heart broke for Sam today!!! Jason is sorry he couldn't accept "THE baby". He's sorry he got jealous of her friendship with John and sent men to beat him up or she might not have lost "HER baby". He never wanted "THAT baby" to be gone and he would give his life "so you can have YOUR son back." THE baby, HER baby, THAT baby, YOUR son. I'm so glad that Sam told him she couldn't just instantly forgive him or that she might never be able to stop blaming him! He doesn't deserve it!!! Not only hasn't he earned her forgiveness or trust but in fact, he's done exactly the opposite by not only kissing Elizabeth as tit for tat, but by constantly hanging around her (Sam's arch nemesis), knowing that Elizabeth is flaunting her renewed interest in Jason all around town to anyone that will listen or who might overhear. And so far Sam, Alexis, Kristina, Molly, Steve, Patrick, Heather, Ewen, Sonny, Spinelli, Carly and Jason himself all know Elizabeth is interested in rekindling her affair with Jason. How is Sam supposed to forgive or accept THAT when Jason can't even accept her friendship with John? Jason is a schmuck and I no longer want Sam with him!! She deserves so much better than that self-centered, compassionless, unfaithful, douchebag!!!

Bravo to Kelly Monaco for giving us a nuanced and beautiful performance!!! Love

I totally agree with you Sassy. Jason was shown lacking. His love for Sam had limits. He did not love her enough, and was not able to accept "her rape baby". He does not deserve to be forgiven. She should show him the door and never let him back in.

Maybe he will learn a good lesson from this, and be a better man for the next woman....which will hopefully be Elizabeth.

Funny you should say this, because for the longest time, girl had no story at all. From the time they got married at Christmas to a couple of months ago, Lulu was practically MIA. Now all of a sudden, she has a ton of different stories with different characters all at the same time. Slow down writers. Poor girl will need to catch her breath!

I sort of see it, but it's not quite as bad as Claudia/Johnny. Those two had so much smoking heat between them it was too bad they were playing siblings.

Miry wrote:

How about Carly pursues him but doesn't get him because Jax regained his brain while he was gone and realized that a mob moll is not what he wants, but what he does want is a gorgeous, though slightly neurotic lawyer that he will have to rescue from his psychotic brother's clutches.

I had to laugh at this sentence because only on a soap would there be a gargoyle, available to throw at someone!!!

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. Liz does not deserve that douchebag putz. Jason should be with the person of his dreams, the only person he truly loves....Sonny.

I dont really like that they will not allow Jason to refer even accidentally as "our" baby. He did consider the child his.

Sam is not the victim. I wish people would stop painting her that way. She married a hitman for better or worse. How surprised can she possibly be that he would handle any problem with violence? What is the deal with her not being able to forgive her husband for handling an issue with violence? He didnt know she was in labor. She knew Jake was his kid when she watched an unbalanced woman kidnap him. She has been forgiven but cannot forgive? The two of them are awful willing to end a marriage that I am supposed to believe is one of soulmates. Not hardly! She wants Jason to accept her relationship with a cop and she is a ride or die chick who understands his lifestyle? Silliness!

By the way, this breakup scene was the first time I could dredge up even a minute particle of respect for Kelly Monaco's acting. It was stilted and she appeared uncomfortable so I decided to assume that she too thought the whole setup was stupid. Sam is just walking away from Jason after parking herself on his couch and eating only Chinese leftovers for years because she can't forgive him? I just have to believe that Kelly Monaco was confused and shocked. She certainly didnt sell that dialog like she understood it.

I suspect Lulu's pregnancy is being tied into the shows 50th anniversary next year. And no, this is not a spoiler.

Jason. Jason. Jason. Sam is always blaming you for things that go wrong in HER life. Sam blamed Jason for being shot by Manny. Sam blamed Jason for riding Ric like a pony on the floor of her cancer stricken mother's home. Sam blamed Jason for sleeping with Liz while she was riding Ric. Sam blamed Jason for impregnating Liz. Sam blamed Jason when she hid in the bushes while a cray cray woman walked off with his son. Sam blamed Jason when she hired the men that went after Liz, Cam and Jake in the park. Sam blamed Jason when she couldn't have a child. Sam blamed Jason because she does not have a GED or the common sense not to take a baby out into a storm, into the woods and dump him in a planter. Sam blaming Jason is just wrong for her baby's death. Sam chose to move to Alexis home AFTER her baby died instead of being supported by her mom and sisters. Sam has YET to blame Jason for all of the times she fell out of the sky in her panties, showed up in her peepshow outfit, or basically stalked him to death in order for him to take her back.

Here's hoping that JaSam breakup sticks and Jason moves on whether to Liz or alone, because I am tired of listening to Sam not take responsibility for her own actions that led up to Jason Jr. death or give the man a chance to deal with the baby being Franco's.

Now that Ive seen the great stuff on the screen with Heather, Anna, Robin, Patrick, ect... All the Joe Scully, Sonny, Kate Kristina, Spinelli stuff seems so bad. The show itself has a split personality, some days when they focus on the exciting stuff with the characters the audience has attached to its on fire. But then Trey, Joe, and fake Kristina come on the screen and its FF time. Its those days I can watch GH in two minutes flat.

My poor jasam heart broke a little.. Sob!!! However Kemo has just been so awesome during this whole story.. Totally has outshined SBu.. I can only assume she has a ton of emmy material. My only hope is generally these kind of seperations are just to add angst to a couple.. The fact is they still have a little bebe out there. I still hope to see a reunion with my Q's involved. They really are not doing Jason any favors with his dialogue- I love for once him going under the bus..

I am with you Perkie- would love to see Jax come back to rescue Alexis- and tell Carly to stuff it. I really want to see Carly have to work for something.. I was hoping to see Alexis pull out her naughty librarian glasses and point them at Jerry while she gave him one of her lecturing lectures.. Then talk her way right out of there..

@Logan_escholls-I totally agree with your assessment of Sonny and Kristina. It was wierd watching that. It almost felt like Sonny was flirting a little bit. He was laughing and everything.

@FFIT-I agree with you too. The Sam hate is just laughable. Even though it is a breakup, the love between them is obvious. Jason telling Sam he wants to give it a try if she wants too says a lot.

@Sassy-I agree with you three. I feel like Jerry's storyline is just not being written well. What is the problem with the writers. This is a superb actor you have on your hands!

Sorry, but GH is just not where it needs to be. I have not been impressed overall.

I will say that I am happy that this Jasam "seperation" is by Sams choice.. For so long it has been Jason saying "I am leaving you for your safety" to every lady he is with.. I am super hopeful because this is clearly a big change in the writing.. Sam is holding the cards- he wants her back and she is aying no.. That totally shows where his heart is.. For once he is on the other side and I love that my girl has the power... He wants her to come home- and order all sorts of chinese food all over the place.. Wink

I don't think Jason was doing abything but going through the motions. If he truly wanted Sam back, why would he take off his ring? Ring removal is a rather glaring tell.

Nah!!! If he wanted to do anything to make her happy, he would have accepted her suggestion that he also accept her relationship with her new boyfriend.

Spinelli's comment at the gym about JaSam being a "habit" was very telling on Friday. I think Jason finally realized that his relationship with Sam is toxic. It is time to move O.N.

Wow, I love Shadow of a Doubt--it's just so weird that it never fails to fascinate me. I recommend it to all of my friends; but they just don't understand why I love it so much and think I've just got a crush on Joseph Cotten ( well, I do love him in The Magnificent Ambersons, too; but I digress...)

Sad to see so many Liz FF wishing for her to be the consolation prize. Clearly jason still loves sam even if he doesnt know what to do or say about his major f*up with their child.

Im still waiting to see how Sam chasing someone through the metro court and landing on jason was planned. I know Sam is brilliant but the logistics would have had to have been as complicated as cirque de soleil

I second that emotion - Liz was there long before Sam ever created an imprint on Jason's couch.

But explain to me why after Liason last break-up was Sam not considered a consolation prize - I mean it's not like Liason broke up over Sam so in the end her running after him in her hookah heels was sort of desperate and made her look like he settled.

And truly if we use SamFF theory all women outside of a person's first love are consolation prizes.
