General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Trey makes a break for it. Connie says they were arguing about his marriage to Kristina. Michael shows up ready to tell Sonny about his connection to Trey’s father. He wonders why Kate hasn’t said anything. Kate gets a call from Olivia and heads out.

Michael tells Sonny that he doesn’t believe Trey’s story. He says he made up the whole thing about the fathers for the reality show. He tells Sonny that Trey’s father just got out of prison. Sonny thinks he knows who Trey’s father is.

Trey’s upset when he gets back to the apartment, but despite Starr’s efforts he doesn’t tell her the truth about what happened with Kate.

Dante and Lulu get busy trying to make a baby. Steve calls and tells Dante that Heather has escaped. Dante warns Olivia to stay clear of Heather. Kate stops by to see Olivia. Olivia ‘hallucinates’ that it’s Connie, even though Connie pretends and claims she’s Kate.

Carly wants to know what Johnny’s secret was. Johnny says his share of the ransom money was gotten from mob connections. Carly makes him promise not to keep any more secrets.

Jax wants Todd to tell him what Johnny’s secret is. Todd wants to, but ultimately doesn’t tell Jax, who figures Johnny likely has something on Todd in exchange.

Spin tells Jason about Heather being in the area of the shack on the night in question. They figure Heather must have had an accomplice. Jason wants to go to Ferncliffe to question Heather, but Steve calls and lets them know that she’s escaped.

Carly asks Jax to deal with the divorce papers. Connie stops by to see Johnny.

    Sorry for the shorter than usual column today. Had to work, covering someone on vacation. Then had a school meeting that ran late. Then took forever to watch the episode and was too tired to take the normal notes and did the column from memory.

    I love that Connie’s back.

    I love that Olivia knew who she really was.

    I love Lante and their baby making cuteness.

    Todd line of the day:
    Jax: What did you see
    Todd: Johnny dancing around in women’s undewear.

    Thanks for posting this, Perkie. It’s still a good memory-jogger. :-)

    My only thought about today’s show is that I wonder if I’m the only one (I don’t think so) who is tired of all the flashbacks to what happened the on the PREVIOUS DAY’S SHOW!!! Come on, we don’t need the constant flashbacks. We’ve got Perkie and YouTube and other ways to catch up if we missed a show. It’s especially annoying when you watch two shows back-to-back, and you start to feel as though all you see is flashbacks!

    @TV Gord-Oh my gosh! You have said it! ;) I am so dang tired as well of all these flashback moments in an episode!!! They almost don’t miss a day. I don’t like FV choice in doing this. :Sp I can say GH never really did this before under Phelps.

    I like the “flashback” moments as I think they’re there for viewers who may have missed a show.

    I absolutely laughed out loud when Todd said he saw Johnny “doing the cha cha cha in women’s underwear” to Jax!What a line!! Well done writers! :D :D :D

    Wonder who’s going to be Kate/Connie’s shrink now?I really felt for Trey and thought Erik Valdez did a pretty good job in his scenes.Also enjoyed Olivia’s “sixth sense” and feel this is really going to be useful to her and the other citizens of Port Charles. :) :love:

    What really sold RoH’s line about Johnny’s cha cha cha in women’s underwear was the little dance he did while delivering it. Absolutely hysterical.

    So if Connie is with Olivia when crazy Heather comes calling, are we going to have a show-down of the crazies?

    It would be a great tribute to the history of the show if in the end it’s Jax who discovers both Todd’s and Johnny’s secrets and reveals them to Carly. As much as the killing of a child is a horrific crime, I am still in the camp that says it was an unintentional accident that occurred when Johnny was trying to get rid of the one person EVERYONE in town … including Sonny … was trying to get rid of for months/years.

    Johnny CHOSE to end his father-grandfather’s life and had no way of knowing what the results would be in the end. Sure, he is guilty of causing Hope’s death and keeping it a secret BUT it was not his decision to do it.

    Compare that to Todd’s MOST SELFISH act ever and Todd takes the cake. I understand its a soap opera but lets not forget that on top of Todd’s recent deeds his MOST SELFISH and even more horrific act had been orchestrating the gang rape of Marty. SORRY, rape is rape and HOW or WHY any smart woman would find this man SEXUAL/ROMANTICALLY attractive is beyond me. (Bring on a dim wit to show Todd is a “man” not pair him with Carly).

    Anyway, Todd made a lucid decision to switch a dead baby for a live one NOT for noble reasons (there are never any) but SOLELY because he did not want Tea mad at him and to blame him for Tea’s son’s death! That is SELFISH act number one. THEN he took a child from another woman whom he did not know to complete his first selfish act MAKING this his second selfish act! He took the child not from a woman who died in childbirth but a woman who collapsed from it. A woman he was told would thank him for his “noble act” and HE didn’t knwo that lying woman either!

    When you compare both men, you have to go with Johnny to be the redeemed man. He has NEVER harmed a woman. He lived a tortured life at the hands of his father-grandfather and still up to only a few years ago stayed out of the mob. He got into it only to exact revenge on the man whom he believed was to blame for his sister-mother’s death.

    Todd. He’s a rapist. He has kidnapped and told women their newborn child is dead MORE THAN ONCE all because of selfish reasons. And he’s a buffoon.

    pjc722 – You nailed it on the head for me in respect to Johnny/Todd.

    I just wish that Johnny told Carly something more tangent like he did shoot Anthony. Not some lame story about cash flow

    I too love Connie and that Olivia sees thru the charade but isn’t quite sure.

    My only issue with flashbacks is while yes it does get bothersome at times…if having flashbacks in some ways helps with cost maintenance on this show…then I am all for anything to keep this amazing show on the air

    If you think this show is bad, try watching DOOL (maybe you do)…they have probably 5 times as many flashbacks as GH. I honestly haven’t noticed it that much on GH. I think maybe GH does it on Monday/Tuesday shows to remind us of something that happened the previous week, but it doesn’t bother me like DOOL, which can have up to 10-12 flashbacks in one episode, one scene after another, showing stuff that just happened on THAT SAME SHOW.

    I agree about Olivia. Boring and repeticious. Too sterotypical. I am glad they have been pulling back on that. Or at least the actress is. Too over the top. You know what I mean. It came out in tales of the old neighborhood. I don’t know, maybe if someone is from the old neighborhood…..I feel the same from Sonny and the rest from Bensonhurst. They are how old and moved from there when?

    I think actress plays crazy better. Maybe she could even have a permanent mean streak no one picks up on. Not necessarily crazy but possessive of Dante or something. An edge.

    Because Olivia only looks a few years older than Dante (referring to actors), I think pulling back on the honey stuff, should go. It comes off rearly weird in this pair. I won’t go further on that. Just awkward scenes. I cringe when that mother/son are in scenes. Very close to the odd mother/son duo (now gone) on B&B. The difference on B&B is that weirdness is part of that whole show.

    Show has had some good twists and turns lately.

    I agree about too many flashbacks every day, they also did that on OLTL. I guess they keep hoping there are new viewers tuning in each day, to keep them up-to-date but as an everyday watcher it can get annoying. I still think Bree Williamson, on OLTL, did a better acting job with the multi-personalities storyline then Kelly Sullivan. Bree would slide into the different personalities so well and more believable, while Kelly sometimes over does those big eye facial expressions.

    [quote=JASAMMABBY]@PCJ AND Raven- I am so with you on Johnny. It could just be that I love the actor to death. I hate the way that Todd of all people is looking like the wounded party..[/quote]

    That’s twice in a week you’ve agreed with me…are you getting scared yet LMAO ;)

    I love that the love of a good character can bring all together

    I found Jason and Spinelli’s conversation to be silly and stilted. Perhaps it is because it seems rather obvious to me that they should look into any other newborns on the night of the storm. Spinelli already was into the hospital records. The Heather tie seemed like a leap whereas exploring other babIes seems like a no brainer. It just sems like the writers have them climbing over a mountain when there is a tunnel in plain sight.

    I like Olivia and I like that she has more to do than cook for Damte.

    Kate has moments where I buy in and than she loses me.

    I want more Jax. Johnny is good but I really want him to confess so we can all get past this. I also hate him with Carly. I cannot remember when I last thought she was a viable character. I think only with Jax.

    I like Dante and Lulu in their baby making mode. I really want Lulu to call her mother.

    I don’t know how I feel about Trey but I like him better with Star than Kristina.

    A guy makes a couple of little mistakes and you never let him forget it.

    Can I love todd AND johnny? THough I do want todd to get whats coming to him way more than johnny.

    I also agree about spin and jason. I said the other day that I thought they would find the baby easily because you are only talking about 500 babies and you could rule out any child born in the hospital from there. It doesnt seem like that would be potentially more than five at best.

    I appreciate anything it really helps me keep track of things I’m terrible with details and I like reading the responses from posters … Thank you very much.
