General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Carly thanks Todd for waiting at the hospital with her.  Michael and Starr show up, grateful to see their parent alive.  Todd jokingly says he’ll kill them for going to Vegas.  Carly explains what happened. Michael asks about Jax, but Carly’s not sure where he is. She explains about Johnny being shot protecting her. 

Sonny stops by to see Jason, who has to spend an extra day in hospital.  Sonny claims that Jerry is dead, so the crisis is over.  He also says Jax’s body wasn’t found. Jason figures he’ll need to tell Carly, but Sonny offers to do it. 

Joe finds Tracy in one of the rooms and they’re both thrilled they made it through.  He wants to get on with their lives.  Tracy asks if he wants to come stay at the mansion so they can get to know each other better.  Joe agrees and heads out of the room only to spot Sonny. He ducks back in, dragging Tracy on the pretext that he just can’t wait to have her.  Once they’re done, Tracy’s surprised at herself. Joe says they’re celebrating being alive.  After he’s gone, Tracy finds his medallion and knows his initials are JMS.

Kristina and Trey show up at the lake house and tell Sam that they were in Vegas getting married.  Kris explains that it’s for the show and they’ll get it annulled.  Sam points out that neither Alexis nor Sonny will be happy. Kris doesn’t think it will be a problem.  Trey calls his dad to meet and heads out, but not before Kris reminds him that they need to take care of the annulment. 

Sam explains to Kris about Jason and John and saying her goodbyes.  Kristina can’t believe she’s someone’s wife now.  Sam comments on how their mother will be working on Kris’ annulment at the same time as Sam’s divorce. 

Spinelli is grateful that Maxie and her parents are okay. Mac wonders why he wasn’t in town. Spin explains chasing Ewen’s lead and then not being allowed to fly back into the city.  Maxie asks if Spin no longer hates her, because she misses their friendship.  Spinelli says they aren’t friends and never will be again. 

Maxie doesn’t understand, since she knows Spin cares about her.  Spin explains that he can’t keep being treated like junk under her shoe.  He says if he can’t have her love, he refuses her like. 

Felicia tells Maxie that being with Frisco was exciting and romantic. She thought they’d live happily ever after, but grew apart. She was always chasing the dream. She says she needed to grow up and open her heart to Mac, who’s there for her and loves her. Felicia says it sounds like Spin and his feelings for Maxie. Maxie asks if her mother wants her to get back with Spinelli, saying it didn’t work the last time, because she cheated and then got married.  Felicia says Matt didn’t ask her to wait and that her experience is loving a man who’s there for her. She deserves to be happy. 

Starr and Todd head off to see Johnny. Carly explains to Michael that she thinks Johnny was trying to confess something to her.  Sonny arrives and Michael says he has something to tell about Trey and Kristina.  Sonny says he needs to tell Carly that Jax didn’t make it.  Carly refuses to believe it. She then wants to call someone to look for Jax.  Sonny says search and rescue has already looked and not found either body.  Carly says if Sonny didn’t see a body, then it doesn’t mean Jax is dead. She wonders why Sonny’s trying too hard to convince her.  She asks if it was what he wanted. 

Sonny says Jerry was the one that blew up the boat, but Carly says it’s his fault if Jax is dead.  Jax arrives, saying Sonny actually saved his life.  Carly is thrilled to see him. Jax explains that he got thrown into the water and hit his head, but hung onto something until morning and then swam to shore.  Carly takes Jax to be checked out. 

Starr tells an unconscious Johnny that she’s glad he’ll be okay, since he’s an amazing friend that she grateful to have in her life.  Todd interrupts, but she says she wants Johnny to know that she’s there.  Todd tells her not to wake Johnny, so Starr leaves, while Todd stays behind. 

Todd closes the blinds, locks the door, grabs a pillow and holds it over Johnny’s face.  Johnny wakes up and fights back.  Todd stops, figuring it’s not worth a murder charge. He warns Johnny not to confess anything to Carly or he really will shut him up for good.  Johnny agrees to go back to how it was, but points out that Jax overheard them talking and is protective of Carly. If he finds out, it could be a problem for them.  Todd is sure that Jax won’t be a problem and the two shake hands on their new promise.

Spinelli stops by to see Jason and apologizes for not believing him about Ewen.  Jason says he needs his help and explains about the inconsistencies in Sam’s baby’s file.  Spin hacks into the hospital computer.  Spin says Sam donated the baby’s tissues, which can be frozen until needed.  Jason tells him to find out if the baby that died was Sam’s. 

Michael tells Sonny that Kristina and Trey got married in Vegas.  Sonny angrily declares that he’s going to straighten things out.  When he gets to the lake house, Sonny accuses Trey of taking advantage of Kristina. However, she swears it was all for the show. 

Joe stops by to see Trey, who wonders if his father knew in advance about the threat. Joe claims he only wanted Trey out of town to make sure the wedding took place.  Starr arrives surprised to see Trey’s dad.

Jax is given a clean bill of health, much to Carly’s relief.  He tells her that she needs to find out what Johnny and Todd are keeping from her.

I'll admit it, I squeeled like a little girl when JAx showed up. Although I did giggle a little that he spent the night in the water, but his jacket and clothes were still nicely intact and pretty much dry. And just how thorough was that search and rescue team that they didn't see a 6 foot tall guy hanging out on a piece of wood.

Todd, stop trying to kill Johnny.

Loved Sam's incredulity at Kris' inane "Mom and Dad aren't going to have a problem with this". Uh Kris, have you met neurotic Alexis and crazy Sonny.

Love the Maxie/Felicia/MAc family unit, but I really hate Felicia's message to go for Spin because he's there. Or maybe it's just that I hate Spin. Even more so, now that real Maxie is back.

I think the tissue sample angle is an interesting one, although I wish someone other than Jason and Spin were figuring it out.

If cartini doesnt have the good sense to keep jax on the canvas, it will be their first MAJOR blunder IMHO. I never realized how important he was to the canvas until he really seemed gone for good and with jason gone, they should use that money to keep ingo (and bring back robert scorpio)

I enjoy nu kristina when shes one on one with one of the pros when shes talking about something OTHER than mob princess. then we go back to that dog of a story again and my eyes glass over. if carjohn is to be done, they should have trey leave town and put her with johnny. This K is old enough, the story would be an interesting dynamic and she would benefit from working with someone as talented as BBa.

So pleased to see jason ignoring liz's naysaying and trusting his instincts. Go get your son daddy.

Are they showing Jason scenes that were filmed out of order? He told Spinelli that he had only shared his suspicions with Spin and Liz. Didn't he also tell Monica? The show got interrupted for a fire but he was speaking with Monica yesterday and had the file. Did he ask Monica? Was yesterday's Monica scene added after SB decided to leave?

Perkie- I hated Felicia's advice too. It sounded a bit like if you can't have who you want you should love the one you are with. Ick! Poor Mac.

Poor Tracy!!

So happy to see Jax!

Can we get Anna back now?

Can we see Edward again?

I also yell when I saw Jax. He is VERY important to this show especially now that we have the real Jax back. Everything about him is so right...so right. Todd putting that pillow over Johnny face was annoying. So sick of them having the same freakin conversation everyday. It's enough!

I also did not like that Felicia told Maxie to get with Spinelli because he's always around. Basically because he's boring. I'm still pissed Mac got back with Felicia. Mac sexy, fine behind needs to be out there dating. Maxie doesn't deserve a man-child like Spinelli. She is grown. Time for her to get with a grown, sexy man. Johnny and Maxie was a missed opportunity.

Lastly, I just want to say since Felicia is back it's time for Alexis to get her friend back. Those two planned a wedding together. I want to see them friends again, NOW. Mac/Shawn are buddy buddy. Let the four of them be cool. Mac's not a cop anymore so he can be cool with Shawn. They better not miss the chance. ...Poor Tracy, poor Tracy. Tracy and Liz, unlucky in love. Liz better get a great man.

GHvetfan - Jason did tell Monica about the blood type and the other concers he had (hemophilia, etc) and Monica was also a "naysayer". She also said that it was probably a typo or lab mistake.

Did I miss something? I hear that the show is firing on all cylinders for some people but when did Felicia and Maxie get all warm and fuzzy? The last I recall Maxi couldn't stand her...did they have a storyline where they made up? Nevertheless its good to see Felicia and Mac again...it seems these characters are just making guest appearances not its been a long time since I've seen Felicia...

Great to see Tracey and Alexis set free from the confines/shackles of Frons' GH Tracey is getting it on! Go Tracey Go; I like Joe with her...so I've changed my tune about him.

My sweet Alexis in action packed scenes again ~le sigh~ and even got a kiss! She's not just playing Mommy to her coven of brats? WoW..if this was the old GH it would have been Sam again...and/or Carly again and/or LuLu again...I was really surprised in these two kicking A and takin' names.

Why did things go down a notch with the Trey/Kristina/Sam scenes? Oh I know they bore me. Looking forward to Jason's exit storyline its got me curious.

Jasper Jacks I miss him; I hope he sticks around longer this time.

True js monica was a bit of a naysayer too but the reason i didnt mention her is that their convo was cut off. Spin too was a naysayer in the first stages but as jason laid out the case he became a little concerned and seemed to think that yes, it deserved a second look. Monica didnt get to hear how strongly jasons instincts were pinging and Im not sure he walked her through all the details? Since he has now had parts of the same convo with three people I dont recall which details were shared with which people.

So Jason isn't simply ignoring Liz? And, Liz isn't naysaying for any nefarious purpose? Also, she doesn't win or lose anything by not believing or helping him? Did Jason say he wanted to find the truth to get back with Sam? Did he say he was trying to prove himself to her? I missed that.

Jasons instincts were to believe sam and to tell her about the baby. Liz told him not to move forward, essentially a lie of omission. It seemed odd to me that the same day that she told him not to go look for the child, she declared that basically since lucky "died" in the fire, she developed feelings for jason that never go away - which means that ALL those times sam said hey back off my boyfriend/fiance/husband and liz kept saying but were FRIIIIIIEEENDS and sam looked her like "yeah right", clearly sams instincts were right. Moreover all those times liz's husband, gvs lucky, accused her of secretly comparing him unfavorably to jason and of still wanting jason, HIS instincts were right too.

I dont think so far we have a clear picture of what liz's motives are. Remember when she was claiming she wanted jason to go back to sam and that she was rooting for their marriage? Seems odd THAT would have been her motive if she still loved the guy. I certainly wouldnt be honestly looking to encourage a marriage if the alternative was the guy i was in love with would be available then to me.

You would if you genuinely loved him and wanted him to be happy. If Jason says that he loves Sam and wants to stay married to her, I have no doubt Liz would back off because she clearly has for years. You can love someone and not be able to be with them. I have no doubt Luke loves Laura and vice versa. Anna and Robert couldn't stay together. Felicia and Frisco were in love but his spy games got in the way. Life happens! It isn't so simplistic. Sam says she loves Jason but is holding hands with the Pain. How come Liz is responsible for Jason and Sam's marriage? Jason has slways said he loved Liz. Sam knew that when she threw herself off a roof at him, and when she threw herself down the stairs at him. Monica also had the instincts to not believe the inconceivable as did Spinelli as did Jason.

Why is Liz the bad guy? She just survived a real threat to her life and the town. Her reaction is to be honest and tell Jason how she feels knowing she may get her heart broken but also knowing he has chosen a divorce. Sam is doing the same. Why is it ok for her and not Liz? She is the one who said she cannot forgive Jason but also now admits she too was culpable on the loss of the baby. She is being wishy washy with Jason and John. How come that is ok?
