General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

68
comments


Carly wants to know how Steve plans on treating Josslyn, but he’s just hoping the meds they’ve given are going to keep the fever down. Sam explains that Alexis was at Wyndemere. Jason feels that was where the injection took place. Carly can’t believe someone would take Josslyn to Wyndemere. Jason thinks Ewen can shed a light and explains seeing him there.

Johnny arrives and Carly gives him the details. She is upset that she doesn’t even known how long Joss was gone. She tells Johnny that it was deliberate and blames herself for not paying attention. Steve tells Carly that he’s rechecked some lab work and has bad news.

Ewen tells the same story about getting a call from the alarm company, but Jason says the call was a fake. He says that someone wanted Alexis there. Liz is glad that Ewen was delayed getting the message, figuring that he could have been injected too, but Jason doesn’t believe that.

Molly’s complaining to TJ about her mom when she finally checks Kris’ voice messages and they head to the hospital.

Trey explains to Kristina that his father is in jail, but has been framed. Kristina’s distracted by her mother and Trey tells her to focus on Alexis right now.

Jerry explains to Joe how he gave Alexis and Josslyn injections, which will ultimately make them very sick and that the doctors will spend the day chasing their tails.

Ewen calls Jerry to warn them that people know the injections were given at Wyndemere and that people are getting close to figuring out what’s going on.

Liz is upset with Jason for assuming Ewen is involved. Liz says Ewen is a doctor who wouldn’t hurt people and he’s not a liar. Jason points out what she told him about Ewen leaving her at Wyndemere. Liz accuses him of trying to play hero to Sam, but Jason says Josslyn is sick too. Jason claims she doesn’t trust Ewen, but Liz say she’s dating him and likes him and not to try and protect her.

Joe calls Trey to ask about the wedding plans. Trey tells his father that there won’t be a wedding because Alexis is sick and it wouldn’t be right to mess with Kristina right now. Joe’s upset with Jerry for messing his wedding plans.

Dr. Cutie tells the Davis girls that Alexis is not responding to the medication and her fever and heart rate are going up which can cause organ damage. Steve tells Carly the same thing about Josslyn and that with fever comes seizures and possible brain damage. Sam and Molly beg the doctor not to let Alexis die and to do something for her. Steve tells Carly that they’ve done everything they can for Josslyn.

Johnny goes to the chapel to pray for Josslyn. He tells God not to make Joss pay for what he did, thinking that Josslyn is being punished for what Johnny did to Hope. Starr finds him there and says that she keeps thinking of Hope even though she should be focusing on Josslyn and supporting Michael. They hug and Johnny repeats that he’s sorry. Johnny says he has something to tell Starr but before he gets a chance, Michael arrives to tell them that Joss likely won’t make it, so Johnny heads back to Carly’s side. Michael’s upset that he promised he’d take Joss on a boat ride.

Shawn, TJ and Trey join them in the chapel, hold hands and pray. Carly wonders how she could not have noticed that Josslyn wasn’t in the house. Johnny tells her that she can’t stand guard by joss’s room all the time and that it’s not her fault. Carly talks to Josslyn, and tells her to fight.

At Sam’s insistence, Steve checks on Alexis but he tells her there’s nothing more than can do. Both monitors go off at the same time and both families think its’ the end.

Jerry explains to Joe that he didn’t harm either of them, that he loves them. Both Alexis and Josslyn suddenly wake up and their families rejoice as jerry says he did it to inoculate them, to keep them safe from what he’s about to unleash on everyone else.

I will. Thanks. My sister seems to be improving, although I'm a little afraid to say it. Walking on pins and needles. You've all really touched me deeply.

I have to agree with some of the things you said. I am just not liking this Jerry Jacks storyline. It just came out of nowhere. The acting on Friday's show, especially from the younger cast, was so over-acted and the whole story was over-dramatic. The actor playing Jerry is great but I would have liked to see him in a better storyline.He's so James Bond-ish, I could see him with Anna in an adventure story, not this pyscho killer letting this virus out on Port Charles. Too dumb a story for me.
I still want to see more romance. GH has the hottest guys, and I just love Micheal Easton and Roger Howarth. Give them both a hot love storyline already. I still love Blair with Todd, wish they'd make Blair a regular but I will take a Carly/ Todd romance, then have Blair come on and have her and Carly fight over Todd. That's how to bring in the ratings. I am a longtime viewer Of GH and remember the Luke and Laura days when the show was at the top. Why? It was about a couple that had amazing chemistry, and had adventure storylines.

[I am so grateful to all of you for your thoughts and wishes that I decided to do a recap of today's show. I'm no Perkie, but she deserves a break and I hope this keeps people happy until she's back. I may not be able to do it tomorrow, but for now, here's what happened on Monday, August 20, 2012...with a little editorializing by me.] Wink

Spinelli is delivering a big white cuddly teddy bear to Josslyn and a gift basket to Alexis (or is it the other way around?) when Jason sidetracks him to investigate who might have injected them. Jason says he suspects Dr. Keenan. Jason has been suspicious about him since he pulled Elizabeth out of the water and just left her there to tend to another patient. Spin wonders if Jason's feelings are tied to Elizabeth's relationship with Keenan, but regardless, he goes to Keenan's office after hours and starts looking for clues.

Sonny and Kate are at General Hospital after seeing Alexis and Josslyn. They spot Dr. Keenan and ask how someone could inject them with a dangerous substance. Dr. Keenan's guilt is written all over his face [but neither of those idiots notice]. John McBain calls Sonny to say that they need to meet to talk about Joe Junior. Sonny and Kate go their separate ways.

Sonny arrives as McBain is talking on the phone with Sam, offering best wishes to Sam's mother. Sonny doesn't like that and warns him that Jason will want a showdown.

McBain tells Sonny Joe Junior is out of jail, case dismissed [Really? Dismissed? I must have missed that! I thought it was merely bail that Jerry posted.]. John says the jail log showed nobody had been to see Junior, or that his benefactor somehow wiped the record clean. Later, Sonny then has to tell Kate that her rapist is free.

Meanwhile, Kate and Dr. Keenan talk about her future and how she seems to be over the whole Connie business [hyeah, right!]. The good (bad) doc starts to crack during their discussion; his guilt is getting the better of him. He says he can no longer be her doctor. Kate implores him to trust her and tell her what's going on with him. He refuses, but asks that his little snitfit be kept between the two of them. She agrees, but tells him that beating himself up is no more useful for him than beating herself up was for her.

Dante and Lulu are still honeymooning over their pregnancy. They wonder what kind of parents they will be, considering what train wrecks their patents are, but they decide they will be able to do it. They meet with a doctor to confirm the home pregnancy test, but sadly, Lulu is not preggers. (So much for those 50th anniversary celebrations we were discussing last week.)

Trey and Starr are back at their apartment after the ordeal of Josslyn's and Alexis' illnesses, and Starr turns the discussion back to the subject of Trey's father. Trey tells Starr that he broke it to Kristina that his dad is a jailbird, but then he goes on to admit to Starr that his dad has a history with Sonny. Starr wonders whether that's why Trey attempted the reality show with Kristina, and Trey says there wasn't a connection (as far as HE knows).

Jerry Jax and Joe Junior are having breakfast at Windermere. [The one tolerable thing about Junior is how frustrated he gets about the cryptic way Jerry always talks. That's kind of funny.] Jerry rehashes his scheme to poison the Port Charles water supply for Joe [who doesn't process new information too easily in that lunkhead of his] and it finally dawns on him that his son is Port Charles. Jerry says his only solution is to get Trey out of town.

Shawn takes Alexis some flowers and finds her up and around already (you can't keep a good woman down). They talk about Mac's desire for them to get together, and it becomes clear that they both have had the same thoughts. Shawn asks her out on a date, but she argues (always the lawyer) that they are too incompatible to work. Alexis says she traditionally only attracts psychopaths. [Should I be worried that I love her?] Somehow, during their discussion, she finally comes to the decision that she should throw caution to the wind and say yes to Shawn's invitation.

Thanks for the recap, TV Gord.

I miss sexy as hell Ric Lansing.

Dr. Ewen Keenan is losing it! Lawd. The poor man was all shook up while dealing with Kate/Connie, because we all know that Jerry is cray cray.

John sitting down drinking with Sonny was all kinds of wrong. Sigh.

TV Gord-Thanks for the re-cap. I wish I could distill what I see the way you did with todays episode. With me, it's always the details. Wink I have to work on that. These umbrella/ensemble stories get me twisted to where (sigh) everthing seems, oh, I don't know, "important". As for D&L and their "non" pregnancy, which apparently is also part of tomorrows' viewing? Yes, I'm disappointed but I'm thinking (and hoping),the writers are saying "No, not yet. It isn't the right time." Hang in there, darlin'!... Innocent

Hey all, long time Perkie obs. lurker and finally decdided to join in the discussion. When my 2 yr old is running round the house during gh, Perkie keeps me up to date with what I missied Smile

Liking alot about GH these days. So I will just comment on what needs some help. nuKristina needs to meet with GH's acting coach big time. Watching her try to do an emotional scenes is discomfitting and a little embarassing for her. Also need a little better balance. Sometimes you won't see people for like a week at a time. Liking that it isn't so mobcentric as before.

Just a little something on yest. show. Really felt for Lulu. I too have thought i was preg. and found out chem. pregnancy. Didn't know there was a such thing at time. When she said something to the effect of "Didn't know she"d miss something that she didn't really have", that spoke to me.

Wow this was a long comment. Sorry! ha

I liked Dante right away and thought DZ had chemistry with everyone, male or female but I hated that he was earmarked for Lulu rather than allowed to pair off organically. I like Lulu single and have disliked every pairing including Johnny and in fact didnt like Johnny until he was away from Lulu. My point and I do have one: I like Lante for the first time ever right now. I loved Lulu insisting that they get pregnant right away because it's nearly impossible to plan the perfect time for a baby. They have incomes, health insurance, and a love that finally feels right. I
want a happy healthy pregnancy with Dante pampering her by doing all the chores and cooking, driving her a bit crazy but in a funny positive way. I want Dante hoping for a girl while Lulu plans for a boy. But mostly I want Lulu unaffected by this virus. I am willing to give the virus story a chance in general but if it makes either half of Lante unable to have children...

The Joe Jr. story makes absolutely no sense. Trey marrying Kristina is going to give JJ access to Sonny's fortune? Huh?
