General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Jax tells the gang that Jerry escaped, after he took the guard’s gun in hopes of getting Jerry to take him to the counter agent.  Jax says Jerry had someone helping him, but didn’t see who.  Sonny and Jax get into it. Jax says Sonny got away with trying to kill him and keeping him from his daughter.  Johnny finally breaks it up. Tracy says they need to find Jerry before they all die.  Todd notes that Tracy doesn’t seem to be dying and wonders why. 

Tracy says she was sick then started feeling better, so the others tell her to head to the hospital in case she has a natural immunity that can help the doctors.  Tracy heads off. Jax wonders whose idea was it to give Jerry the money.  Todd cops to it and Carly says they’re splitting the ransom.  Sonny points out that if they can’t find Jerry then they’re all dead.  Jax says he was distracted by Jerry’s mention of Ewen and how he killed their father. 

Patrick stands by the lab doors, remembering losing Robin.  Maxie finds him there, admitting she hasn’t been there since it happened.  Patrick says he needs to find something in Robin’s notes from when Nikolas was poisoned that he can isolate to help everyone.  Maxie offers to help by deciphering Robin’s handwriting.  Patrick thanks her for seeing that he had a problem and getting him help and taking care of Emma.  He says he wouldn’t have made it without her. 

Jerry shows Joe that he has the briefcase of serum hiding in Ewen’s cabin. Jerry mentions Ewen helping to facilitate a trade with someone in Switzerland.  Joe wants one of the vials, telling Jerry that he gave his to Tracy.  Joe reminds Jerry that he saved him at the station and to have a heart, so Jerry gives him one.  Joe gets a call from Tracy that she’s at the hospital and heads there. 

Steve tells Ewen that he shouldn’t save him. He took matters into his own hands once before, but decides he won’t do that this time. He’ll save Ewen’s life, for Liz’ sake.  Ewen tells him that surgery is a waste of time. Other people need Steve’s help more than he does and to let him go.  Steve offers to call someone, but Ewen only wants to talk to Patrick. 

Sam finds a note with the cards that says they were right to check there, but are too late.  John decides to go back to talk to Jerry. Sam passes out, smacking her head on the desk on her way down.  When she comes to, John decides to take her to the hospital to be checked out. 

Liz can’t believe she trusted Ewen and that she didn’t listen to Jason. She feels she could have prevented what happened had she been paying attention and reading the signs.  Jason tells her Ewen’s connection with Jerry goes far back and not to blame herself.  Liz checks and tells Jason that he’ll have to wait to get the bullet out, but gives him an antibiotic.  She apologizes for dragging him into it and getting him shot.  She feels she talked herself into believing Ewen was a good person. 

John and Sam arrive. He asks Liz to take a look at Sam’s head.  Liz agrees to clean up the wound. Sam wonders what happened to Jason’s leg.  Liz explains what happened. Jason mentions Ewen being down in the ER.  John gets a call that Jerry has escaped and heads out.  Jason tries to go with John, but Liz stops him. 

Steve tells Patrick that Ewen is asking for him. However, Patrick wants nothing to do with Ewen.  Steve talks him into going.  Tracy tells Steve that she isn’t sick and Steve agrees to run some tests to find out why. 

Sonny decides he’s going to look for Jerry. Todd offers to go with, but gets a call from Jerry asking to finalize the negotiations for the money.  Todd admits they have it. Jerry wants to know who’s involved.  Carly, Johnny, Sonny and Jax admit they’re part of it.  Jerry tells them he has the cure and will give it to them.  Jax wonders if Jerry is telling the truth or if it’s a trap. 

Joe finds Tracy in the lab and she tells him that Jerry has escaped, but that she’s there to help find the cure.  When Steve returns with Liz to take Tracy’s blood, Joe ducks out. 

Patrick goes to Ewen who apologizes and has something to say about Robin, but dies before telling him anything. 

Sam worries that they don’t have long to live and wonders what if they had made different choices.  She asks Jason, if the baby had lived, would their lives be different.

    Loved, loved, loved seeing Kirsten Storms back. No offence to Jen Lilley, who did a great job in Kirsten’s absence, but Kirsten is Maxie. I loved that it didn’t feel like she’d been gone. Everything was so seemless. Now, she just needs to tone down the hair!!

    When Joe found Tracy at the hospital, I totally expected him to do something to Tracy to prevent her from helping them find the cure.

    I’m pissed that Ewen didn’t spit it out before he died. “Robin’s alive” how tough is that? I really wanted to see what Patrick’s reaction would have been.

    John/Sam/Liz/Jason = awkward!!

    I like the little nuances, like everyone looking hot and sweaty, like they might be sick.

    I am starting to wonder where certain people are, like Anna and Alexis and Lulu and Dante. I can fanwank it that Anna would not be allowed to fly back, but the other should be around. Or at least showing them finding out and being concerned wherever they are (like Starr and Michael)

    I couldn’t stop laughing. Jason has a bandage over his jeans,its hot as blazes and everyone is wearing a jacket while having a fever,and Patrick is now so stupid he can’t read his wife’s writing. Love everyone walking in and contaminating the lab. So glad Ew and his blubbering,crazy behind is dead. And seriously,I can’t stomach anymore Robin flashbacks. I hear about her more now than before she was “dead”. Duke,please keep her.

    I hear ya, how hard was it to get out?! He just kept sayin’ Robin, give a dog a bone, dang…..
    I hope he finds out soon, I know she isn’t coming back, but it’d be nice if he were clued in that his wife and the mother of his kid is alive out there.
    I wonder if Heather is dead yet, I’m sure they let her shower, then we can stop hearing, “Steven Larrrssss”, that is worse than “Robin…Robin..Ro…” well you get it. LOL! That was pretty awkward for the 4 of them. I hope this s/l doesn’t go on forever though…

    I can’t believe that Ewen couldn’t just say that Robin is alive instead of repeating her name a hundred times. I know he was dying but common. LOL

    I’m so happy Kirsten Storms is back. I really missed her! Enjoyed every minute we got with her. And it already felt different when Maxie and Patrick were talking about Robin … so much that doesn’t need to be even said with her in the role.

    My Liason babies are so pretty, pretty! :bigsmile:

    I would have rather seen Patrick move on with a returning Dr. Sarah Webber and then Robin is rescued during the 50th Anniversary show, just as the couple announced their pregnant. Liz is thrilled for her sister and friend, but torn at how unfair it is to Robin.

    Speaking of those Webber sisters, it would have been nice if Steven had a teenage daughter that could be paired up with Morgan.

    Yes, the McBam and Liason scenes were all kinds of awkward. I thought Sam and John were going to get all nasty, nasty on the floor of Johnny’s office. We had all kinds of Liason “eye sex” today!

    Dr. Hunk aka Ewen Keenan is dead. Sigh. The best abs on the show is dead. What a bummer!

    Now, I could get into Patrick/Maxie falling for each other and Robin comes back from the dead. Maxie/Spinelli were better off as platonic friends.

    Yay, Kirsten Storms back onscreen today! Didn’t realize how much I missed her until I saw her back… oh, I’m kidding, I did — I just chose not to piss and moan about it for 11 months, 2 weeks and 4 days like a lot of the GH “fans” out there. :Sp

    Welcome Back Kirsten, you were missed! Thank you Jen for keeping Maxie alive… let’s hope she didn’t drink the water and stays that way.

    When Maxie first appeared with her back to the camera, I thought it was Monica. I got so happy. I realized it was only Maxie and wondered where the he m she has been. About a five seconds later, I realized it was Kirsten Storms. It was for me as if she had never been gone. She is Maxie and I am so glad she is back. Jen Lilly did a fab job and I hope she finds gainful employment really soon. Yay Kirsten is back!

    This Ewan actor may have nice abs but he is not a very good actor. He was way over the top.

    How crazy is it that Jason and Elizabeth were in the cabin just prior to Jerry showing up?

    Here is my antiserum question. One vial gets mixed with a bottle of water and Tracy is fine. Joe got one vial and is improving. Jerry had a briefcase with enough vials for regular cast members. How about the rest of Port Charles? Does he have several crates of brief cases?

    The Sam and Jason scenes were awkward.

    The Liason scenes were fantastic! The eye sex (a distant cousin to arm rape)was off the charts. There is just a sparkle to Jason that only Liz and Robin have ever brought out in him. It makes him seem human and vulnerable.

    McBam were all flirty with their “see you soon” and “I hope so” with cute smiles. Then bam, Sam is hopping off the bed like she is fine and asking Jason what would have happened if her child had lived? Whiplash much? I guess it’s normal to be torn between your soon-to-be ex and the guy you now have the hots for, but the change in emotion in about 30 seconds was a little weird. There needed to be something more in the writing to explain the transition.

    GHvetfan – I was wondering the same thing about the vials.

    I guess I am in the minority but I already miss Jen Lilly. Kirsten Storms is awesome however I just enjoyed Jen’s protrayal of Maxie a bit more. With Jen I felt there were more dimensions to Maxie. I felt a stronger bond between Patrick and Maxie when Jen was there. I felt an unconditional love between the two of them that I somehow don’t see with Kirsten. I just never felt the connection. Perhaps when I see Kirsten perform with Spin then maybe I will change my mind?

    I know Jen will excel at other opportunities and am happy for her. On the same note I happy that Kirsten is healthy and had the opportunity to come back. I wish best of luck to both.

    Here is my antiserum question. One vial gets mixed with a bottle of water and Tracy is fine. Joe got one vial and is improving. Jerry had a briefcase with enough vials for regular cast members. How about the rest of Port Charles? Does he have several crates of brief cases?

    Remember, Jerry had a cannister the size of a large Costco bottle of hairspray that contained a hyper-concentration of the toxin to spread in the water supply. There may have been more. My guess is that he has a similar cannister or cannisters with the counter-agent (which us what McBain & Sam were searching for, thinking it might be with the Dead Man’s Hand). While I think Jerry has indicated that the briefcase contains the only counter agents in the vials, it could be these specific vials are for those Jerry has an interest in saving or that these vials of counter- agent can be used by Patrick & Steve to synthesize a larger batch of the cure.

    I too thought Maxie was Monica. Steve trying to help with a cure is hilarious. Let’s face it,Ew could have walked in with a papercut and still would have died. Steve isn’t really good at saving lives.

    I’m surprised that they are making Jax a dope big enough to let Jerry get the slip on him. Did Ingo really want to come back to have his character made to be so stupid?

    Speaking of Monica, where the hell is she? Isn’t she the Chief of Staff? Normally I give props to Cartini because I have started enjoying the show again, but her absence struck me yesterday. I heard John Ingle (Edward) is ill in real life, and Tracy said he was resting upstairs when the 1%ers were together. Did she explain Monica’s absence?

    Great show yesterday….Liason….what can I say…I love that couple, and enjoy scenes like they had yesterday. I am so bummed that SBu is leaving, because Liason will never get a real chance now.

    Thrilled that KS is back…she is my one and only Maxie also. I am also a Ingo fan…so I have been thrilled to see him back on the show…even if it is only for a bit. I loved seeing a little of my girl Robin yesterday….I still miss her terribly

    I do wonder when Anna is going to return. I think she is way over due, and I miss not seeing her. Who I am glad that is still MIA is the older teen set….. Michael and his entourage can stay in Vegas…I am not missing them at all.

    I think they said the other day that the city is under quarantine, no one in or out. That might mean everyone who’s out of town won’t be appearing until this crisis (ie. poorly thought out storyline) is over.

    AWKWARD

    But can someone tell me if this is the first time Liz and McBain shared a scene together.

    Put me in as one of those who thought that McBam were going to get hot and heavy…that just oozed hotness and tenderness.

    I loved when Jason grabbed Liz’ arm..with SBu leaving I just want one thing a proclamation from Jason that he too has always loved Elizabeth…and that even though he loves with Sam…his heart will always hold a place for Liz.

    I’m surprised that they are making Jax a dope big enough to let Jerry get the slip on him. Did Ingo really want to come back to have his character made to be so stupid?

    Jerry getting the jump on Jax is the wrong formulation of that conclusion. Jax had no idea that Joe Jr. was lurking around the corner, who just happened upon Jax breaking Jerry out. That was all about bad luck. I don’t fault Jasper/Ingo on that level, though.

    The stupid part actually was Jax assaulting a cop (why isn’t Jax in custody?) and thinking he could waltz out of the PCPD with literally Public Enemy #1 at gun point (which, apparently, he could have done). LOL

    (As a non-nitpicker, even I was chuckling at a LOT of the suspension of disbelief stuff, i.e. the police seemingly not at all concerned that Jerry had escaped while The PC 1%-ers held a board meeting at the desk, then held a speakerphone conference call with said Public Enemy #1 as oblivious cops buzz around them. I still love it all, though. LOL)

    Here’s a question, where does the water in Port Charles go once it’s been flushed or sent down the drain? Wouldn’t that pathogen have found itself floating down some water way to another town?

    Here’s a question, where does the water in Port Charles go once it’s been flushed or sent down the drain? Wouldn’t that pathogen have found itself floating down some water way to another town?

    The City
    Corinth
    Llanview
    Pine Valley
    Bay City
    Monticello
    Oakdale
    Springfield
    Harmony
    Sunset Beach
    Santa Barbara…

    To be fair, they are ghost towns now. Jerry pre-tested the toxin on those communities.
