General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Sonny shows Trey the medallion and knows that Joe is his father.  Trey admits it, but blames Sonny for Joe’s troubles.  Sonny tells him to get a divorce. Trey refuses to stay away from Kris, saying he cares for her and wouldn’t hurt her.  Sonny says his father would.  Sonny accuses Trey of tricking Kris into marrying him, pulls a gun and asks where Joe is.  Trey refuses to give his father up.

Olivia stops Connie and Milo’s make out session. Milo begs her not to tell Sonny before he runs off.  Olivia wonders how Kate could do something like that to Sonny, but Connie spins it that Olivia is having another hallucination.  Connie says she was simply calming Milo and would never hurt Sonny. She says  Olivia was having another episode.

Felicia and Mac congratulate Maxie on a job well done. She thanks Lulu for helping with Milo.  She hopes this will get her reinstated at Crimson.  Felicia mentions Spin, but Lulu reminds everyone that Maxie is still married to Matt, even though he wasn’t as good to her after Robin’s death as Spin was.  Lulu says Maxie has to make the first move.

Sam thanks Kris for dragging her out and giving her a good time.  Kris reassures her that she will get through this, with Jason. Sam isn’t so sure. Liz listens as Kris points out that they don’t act like a divorced couple and even kissed.   Kris says Sam is still in love with Jason.

Dante tells Michael that he’s worried about him in regards to Trey.  Michael admits he got very angry in Vegas. Dante warns him that Trey could cause trouble if Michael isn’t careful.  Dante wonders if Sonny is taking care of Trey. Michael says he can’t say anything.

Johnny’s packing a bag when Carly shows up, angry that he’s up and about instead of resting.  He tells her he wants them to go away, sail away on the Star, out of PC for good.  Carly says she has Josslyn, and it’s not realistic, but Johnny is determined.  Carly wonders why he suddenly wants to go and wonders if it’s about the mob money, but Johnny says people don’t want them to make it and want to hurt them.  Carly says this is their home and it’s not the right time to go.

Jason tells Spin that their investigation is over. However, Spin plans on finding out what happened with the tests.  Ellie shows up and Jason says the lab made a mistake, but Ellie says she was responsible.

Kristina asks Starr about Trey. Starr says he was acting weird and said he’d spoken to his mother.  Starr says Trey wouldn’t confide in her but maybe he will Kristina.

Milo gets back to the restaurant and tells Max that Kate came onto him and Olivia caught them.  Max warns him not to say anything to Sonny.

Lulu asks Liz what was bothering her. With Sam sitting a few feet away, listening, Liz tells Lulu that she and Jason kissed.  Liz says Jason kissed her and she was confused, since he’s still married. However, he said he had feelings for her and she always had them for him, but didn’t want to come between JaSam.  She says Jason told her it was over, that he would sign the papers, put his mistakes in the past and move on.  Liz says they’ve been in and out of each other’s lives since before Sam, but the timing was never right, but now it is.  Sam leaves.

Trey asks for his medallion back, saying Kate tore it off of him. Dante interrupts Sonny’s plans, so Sonny hides the gun and Trey runs out.  Back at home Kristina tells him she cares about him and to trust her with the truth.

Connie tells Maxie that she did a good job and the job at Crimson is hers.  With Felicia’s push, Maxie heads out to see Spinelli.  Spin and Ellie are making small talk and Spin asks if she’d be his date for the wedding.  Maxie arrives as Ellie agrees.

Sam finds Jason and gives him the divorce papers, and tells him to sign them so they can move on.

Connie asks to stay at the bar by herself and proceeds to dance on the pool table while eating whipped cream, but she’s not there when Sonny shows up looking for her.  She goes to find Johnny and he begs her not to make him do this.

I fast forwarded all through that bachelorette party nonsense just like I always do with the entire Kate/Connie ridiculous plot. Its just like Cartini to make any excuse to put more trash on the screen. This is their true M.O. just like on One Life to Live.
They used any excuse to turn that show into a gay porn with the lame ass Ford brothers strutting around half naked, and wrestling in saunas and such.
Some of us actually watch Daytime serials for story and performances. We aren't all a bunch of desperate, hard up housewives who are salivating all over the screen at every muscled guy that comes along. Its insulting and lame. That's just another reason why the entire soap genre is just a mere shadow of what it used to be in its heyday. But I guess when you hire inept actresses like Kelly Sullivan they only thing you can do with them is play them in over the top comic relief plots and exploit their sexuality. SMH.

When RC tweeted the 'story beat' comment, he was met by several versions of 'story beat = PP' replies. He didn't deny any of them. He also didn't go into a lengthy explanation as to what he was going to write. He simply followed up with his 'probably not writing any of it (re: Liz) at all' remark. Enough for me.

Yes, I fault ron for not answering every single comment by rabid incensed fans who received answers to their questions and still kept going, pulling apart every word looking for and inferring from each for clues in to some master plot all designed to mess with liz fans. SMDH seriously paranoia will destroy ya!

Ron loves to mess with all the fan bases. Again I Wish Liz wasn't in this story but at least she has one. I would love forJason to leave with both ladies hating him. Can't wait to are his reaction to the truth. AJ taunting him with it would be even better. I Just get the feeling his exit will be lack luster.

Tris - anna has told Jason twice not to break the law. She will throw the book at him. I think that may be how he gets written out. I am hoping AJ sets him up. It would be poetic justice if AJ sent him to jail and kept hom from watching his child grow up.

EET, I have to disagree with you on one point in your post #30. I do NOT feel that Sam looked bad AT ALL!!! I think she behaved like an adult, unlike Elizabeth who was behaving like a jilted jealous teenager!! She had enough courtesy to quietly remove herself from an unpleasant situation rather than creating a scene and disrupting the entire party!!!

My thoughts on Twitter- Actors and TV Personalities and writers set up the accounts and enjoy the adulation they get from fans. It is a good way to communicate if they want that. They have to expect that not everyone loves and thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread. They are speaking to their consumer. They should treat them with courtesy. If he opened himself up to questions, he has to expect to get them. I am not saying that fans should treat him with disrespect but he needs to expect negative feedback as well as positive.

The same holds for Melissa Reeves who shut down her twitter because it got a bit too real for her. People have opinions and they have anonymity. Celebrities do not. They really need to consider that before they open the door.

I do not tweet.

The longer we are subjected to crazy ass Kate the more I am certain that Joe Jr did not rape her. I don't know what made her split but maybe it had something to do with Sonny knocking up Olivia. I agree that here mus be another alter because neither one of thee geniuses could have the smarts to go Princeton on scholarship.

Ever since Kate verbally beat Trey down I have hated her. Now Sonny starts in on the kid, and while we know hes no innocent here, I hate that manipulating and bullying Trey Mitchell has become a spectator sport in PC.

It's easy to believe that Liz is acting out of character as a plot point, but seriously, it really makes Liz look really desperate and If I were a Liz fan I would be outraged. Bad enough she committed herself after having a nervous breakdown after Lucky told her there was no chance for them to get back together. Now Jason tells her virtually the same thing and she goes off the deep end?? Liz seriously needs to be alone for a year or so to get herself together, because this is just sad.

I feel bad for Johnny that he is being pulled by the short hairs by Connie,but I really want Carly back with Jax.

I noticed that in between her lies at the bar, LIZ would look at her phone, fidget, and look away. In the DNA switch scene, she was actually mouthing words of regret. I suspect that there is more to her lies than what seems obvious to the naked eye. Remember when Johnny revealed his knowledge of Todd's misdeeds? I think that something like that is at play here.

Alternatively, perhaps SAM was only imagining what she apparently heard.

Only gay male viewers have the right to categorize this as gay porn.

I have to agree I don't think Sam looked bad at the bar. She and Krissy had a convo that was all Krissy talking about thier kiss and how they love each other. She wasn't aware Liz was there. Then she heard the Liz convo that Liz meant for her to hear that went along with the kiss she witnessed. She acted like a girl with her big girl panties on and left..

On the twitter thing I think he excpects to hear this and opens himself up to it. I myself would never twitter that but to each his one. However I must note yet again another double standard. I have seen many people mention here with contempt the supposed "rabid" fans of Jasam making trouble with hate mail and such. Yet it's OK to be rabid when it's your fanbase doing the twitter explosion?? I guess because it's been alluded to that the Jasam fans get whole stories changed- maybe it will work for them..

He married the daughter of the local mob boss so his father could ruin said mob boss' life. Should we really fell sympathy for Trey and what he's getting back?

Ron tweeted a meme that read "Keep calm while watching GH". I would if any of it made sense. Poor Trey is the Johnny. The adults in his life suck.

Yeah, I feel bad for Trey. His father is pulling his strings by playing the "we only have each other card ", while his batshit crazy mother tells him she wishes she had aborted him. Trey is not innocent here, he was led to believe that Sonny stole from his father and framed him for murderer so he is operating under the assumption that he is helping his dad. Sonny seems to blame him for existing because the delicate hot house orchid that is Kate will relive her so called rape everytime she sees him. Granted, he married Kristina based on a lie, but he really does like the girl and does not want to hurt her. The kid cant help who his parents are. Besides I cant stand him and cant wait for this wedding toblow up in his face.

Okay, I don't get it.

Who cares about this whole Liz/Jason/Sam -triangle/whatever from Boresville, USA?! To me, that is one of the most boring plots on GH right now. Heck, I'm more interested in Trey & Kristina's marriage than this s/l. Ugh.

Especially I have to wonder - thursday's show was all about the bachelorette party, yet everyone on that days thread keeps talking about "Liz this, Liz that..." Liz can go as far as I'm concerned!

That sentence is a bit of an oxymoron. You can't marry someone on a lie and then claim you don't want to hurt them. That's like saying, "I went in the bank to rob it, I didn't mean to kill the security guard". Trey's hands have not been clean since he drove into Port Charles. Starting with doing the show to piss off Kris's family, down to marrying her on dad's behest. Whether he knows the truth about his father or whether he's chosen not to see the signs that are clearly there (dad telling him to stay out of town while the town is being poisoned) he's not an innocent.

I didn't like Trey from jump. He was Just a lost Ford brother to me. But between,Connie's disgusting words,his father telling half truths,and having to deal with Sonny period,Makes me feel for him.
Sonny blames everything on his childhood,then holds people like Johnny and Trey to his hypocritical standards.

In my opinion, the Trey/Connie confrontation was one of the most powerful scenes of the last few months. That scene alone--especially the sight of Trey crying as Connie mercilessly ripped his life apart--was very well done and got me interested in this story. Erik Valdez absolutely nailed that scene and I've been watching daily since then. My issue with that plot now lies with the silliness of Connie acting like a lunatic and no one seeing that Kate has left the building. It's so dumb.

The Lulu/Liz conversation was ridiculous and of a piece with the sudden obliviousness of everyone in PC regarding Connie's reemergence. I mean, I enjoyed it, and I enjoy Liz acting like a vixen (seriously, this is some late-'90s Carly ish she's rocking right now) but what bothered me most about the entire setup was that we were asked to believe that Lulu is dumb or mean enough to have that conversation with Sam three feet away. Lulu's not a saint but why in the world would she be so callous with Sam? And why does she suddenly give a crap about Liz? Alternately, does she have a head wound that is blocking her peripheral vision? It's all quite stupid. Entertaining, but dumb.

I don't blame Liz fans for being angry.

Remember folks, Kate was consciously created as a new identity when Constanza left Bensonhearst to go to school. Psycho Connie as we see her now is the perversion of the original Connie/Constanza after years of being suppressed. She is desperate to keep Kate from marrying Sonny because she has suffered a lot of pain at Sonny's hand, ie. getting shot by Michael, getting shot by Anthony Z on her wedding day, being replaced by that awful bitch, Claudia. Connie/Constanza is protecting herself and Kate from more hurt.
Do I like Connie as we see her now? NO, hell not! She is tacky and trashy and so over the top as to be ludicrous. Why is everyone buying this story about the integrated Connie? Beats me. I think it's a load of manure. It's time to get finished with this boring story line and bring someone interesting to the forefront. We have had Sonny rammed down our throats for years now. Enough already, folks. Pack up the kiddies and send them out of town. Are there any viewers out there who actually care of Trey and Kristina? That story line was full of holes too.

Ron is doing exactly what he did on OLTL to Marty with Liz now. At first I was open to it when it came out as spoiler because I thought hey maybe it's a red herring or something and it's okay because I'll see Liz onscreen more, but now that it's probably not some red herring..I'm upset about it

^^ Exactly! As a former OLTL viewer I have been amazed at how Carvialti has duplicated the same stories from OLTL on GH! Kate Howard's DID is "play-by-play" Jessica Buchanan in Llanview, PA.

Elizabeth Webber is being made to look like Marty Saybrooke. Marty was a longtime beloved character, ruined to prop Jolie (John and Natalie.) Now, Liz is being thrown under the bus to prop JaSam. So completely unnecessary and out-of-character for Liz who has never pined for Jason over the years, manipulated to keep him (as he has sought her out) and contemplate keeping a mother away from her child after suffering the losses of three children herself. I am fine with a shift in character behavior if justified and gradual but not unjustified and sudden! I LOVE Liz's "bitchface" but wish it had good reason to appear and not under this circumstance. Ahh well, I wish Liz had never been dragged into JaSam's orbit when she has great story potential.

The ones in here that are saying that Kate/Connie was not raped dont know much about the bodies defenses and DID. When someone gets raped or something happens that is too hard for a weak person to handle they will develop a new personality to take care of the person. The rough type person is usually the one to be developed from the situation. The shy person is the original one, the one that cant handle problems. The other personality will be the one that does just the opposite of the original person. Some need to read more on DID to understand how it works. A girl that is raped most times can not deal with it and will turn to an way that is good for them.

Perkie - nothing to fight over. RC already tweeted Liz's current actions are nothing but a 'story beat' (aka plot point') and he 'probably would not have
written any of it at all' if SBu had remained.

Jasam have never been able to stand on their own. It wasn't enough to have Franco, Heather, Todd,Johnny,McBain preventing them from being together. Liz had to be thrown in for a 2-day (PC time)hit.

Alas, it will be over next week and Liz will be free!
Becky Herbst ROCKS!

Its always taken a village and an entire eppy to pimp and prop JaSam (even a movie star)...JaSam are "victims" they're always people plotting against them its been like forever but nonstop since 2008.

I'm just sorry Elizabeth is shackeled to this awful storyline for her fans because we know she'll be the heavy. I just don't get this she did a 180 she has always been supportive of JaSam even when she wanted Jason back in 2006...even '04 ...now this...if she had to to be stuck in this black hole I prefer her supporting Jason's family. As has been said it will be finally over and I can't wait. FREE ELIZABETH...!

I'm only looking forward to Duke's storyline and hoping that its not a re-hash of a OLTL story e.g. 2 Dukes...
