General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

64
comments



Sam introduces Sonny to the baby and goes on about being a happy family with Jason again.  Sonny interrupts and breaks the news to her that Jason has been shot and thrown into the harbor. Sonny tells her he dove into the water to look for him, but came up empty. Sam needs to see for herself, and leaves Sonny in charge of the baby.
 
Lulu can’t believe how hurt she is over not being able to carry a child.  Dante reassures her there are other ways to have a family.  He gets a call about the pier, and heads out after Lulu convinces him she’ll be okay.  Maxie finds her and wonders if Lulu’s tears are of joy because she’s pregnant. However, Lulu busts Maxie's bubble and explains her condition. Maxie offers her condolences and asks about the pamphlets.  Lulu says they contain other options, but she’s not interested right now.  Lulu wants a strong drink, so the two head to Jake’s. 


Joe dies after telling Trey that Sonny shot him.  Trey begs Tracy to get him to a hospital, but she says it’s too late and nothing can be done. Tracy suggests they need to call the police.  Trey asks her to call Kristina and Tracy obliges.  Trey wonders why his father ended up here, and Tracy explains they were friends.  She gives Trey his father’s medallion and he’s grateful to have it, since his was taken from him. 
 
Starr and Michael are surprised when Kristina shows up looking for Trey. They quickly realize he went to find his father.  Kristina gets the call from Tracy and heads out.  Sonny phones Michael to tell him Bernie and Jason have been shot and he needs Michael to baby-sit Daniel.
 
Spinelli and Ellie show up at Jake’s to find Mac, Felicia, Shawn and Alexis in the middle of another strip poker game.  Ellie drools over Shawn’s half naked body.  Spin introduces Ellie to Mac and Felicia, and Felicia thinks Ellie is Maxie’s replacement.  Mac points out that Spin offered Maxie his heart, but she rejected him. 
 
Shawn and Alexis make small talk about Trey and the annulment.  Ellie and Spin join them, and Spin is thrilled to hear that JaSam have reconciled. 
 
Maxie tells Lulu she went to see Matt, who was fine with getting a divorce. She wants to tell Spin about Matt's decision. Lulu thinks it’s a bad idea, but Maxie approaches Spin and lets him know. 
 
Trey talks to his father and sulks over not having any family now. He wonders if he should avenge his father's death.  Kristina arrives, surprised to see Joe dead.  Trey tells her Sonny killed him.  Kris cautions him that they don't know for sure who murdered him, but she wouldn't be surprised if it was Sonny.
 
Dante’s on the scene getting caught up to speed on the latest happenings when Sam arrives. Dante says their calling off the search, since it’s too cold and the current is too strong.  Sam knows Jason is down there, and they can’t stop looking for him now.  She refuses to give up and asks for a wet suit to look for Jason herself. Dante doesn’t want her going in the water, but she tells him she’s going down and no one can stop her. 
 
Michael wants to go with Sonny to the scene, but Sonny doesn’t want him to see Jason if the worst has happened. Therefore, Michael and Starr babysit Danny while Sonny returns to the pier.  Michael talks about Jason's great fathering skills and explains his upbringing with Jason. Starr urges him to stay hopeful as long as possible. 
 
Sonny gets back to the scene and lets Dante know what Bernie told him.  Before Dante can investigate, he gets a call about Joe and leaves. Sam arrives in a wet suit and tells Sonny she’s going to find Jason. 
 
Tracy wonders about Joe's admission that he saved her with his only antidote to Jerry's poison. Dante arrives and Tracy explains everything.  Trey tells him Sonny is a suspect, but Dante reminds him Sonny was at his apartment when the original call came in.  Trey figures Sonny headed straight to the pier and shot Joe.  Dante says only one gun was recovered, and it appears to be Joe’s. 
 
Dante mentions Bernie’s death and Jason's shooting, but Trey swears his father didn’t do it.  Trey claims Sonny told Jason to kill Joe.  Dante asks Tracy if there is more to her story, and she hesitates, but denies anything else.   Trey complains to Kristina that everything they said about his father was true. He was a criminal and a murderer, but he was still his father and he loved him. 
 
Sam comes out of the water and Sonny asks if she found anything.  Sam shows him the phoenix.

No, she left him outside in a planter to be highjacked by a lunatic. Fab mother!

Actually when Sam felt like she was going to pass out, she left Danny in a wood planter box that looked like a cradle. Clearly she loved and cared enough about him that she didn't want him to get hurt if she passed out, which she did. Much different than the many thoughtless and reckless things other mothers on GH have done. Sam is a wonderful mother!!!

Sam left her child outside and took herself inside. Fabulous!

And let's not forget that she hightailed her a$$ to the roach motel instead of staying ANYWHERE else during a high risk pregnancy in the middle of the boonies.

Remind me to put her in for an award - Left child out in rain inside a planters box because walking the two feet to get inside was just too much work but I passed out so it's all ok

I was just wondering if anybody else had a problem getting Tuesday's GH on their station. I record every episode and for some reason Tuesday's did not record. I checked on Soap Channel and even there it was Monday's episode instead of Tuesday's. I ended up watching it online.

I loved Kelly Monaco as Livvie on Port Charles, but I've never warmed up to Sam McCall. I think she made a better bad girl.

How is turning your back in your own living room to go through mail leaving a child unattended? Do you have children sassy? Do you know how many times a day a mother's back is turned to her child(ren) in her own home while doing chores, cooking dinner, looking at the mail, taking a shower, etc.? If we have to compare Liz and Sam, which I don't believe is necessary since Sam making poor choices has nothing to do with Liz, Liz looking through her mail vs. Sam leaving her son with a mob boss who is the constant target of shootings and bombings. Yeah, looking through the mail is so much worse.

Yes BigFan - I did as did a few others I believe it was because the description of the show was from the day before so some DVRs read it as a repeat and did not record it.

Yeah I love when Liz hate is so fierce that we would blame a mother for doing something so normal as opposed to actually looking at the fact that a drunk Luke was the real reason that jake is dead.

I mean the boys could have been playing in the front yard with the knowledge of Liz and still gotten run over by the drunkard..but haters would still find some excuse for blaming Liz

Oh and before I forget..what security at the penthouse...Jason does not have guards and Sonny did not have them with him either so she left her son with a Mob Boss who was most likely the target of the hit on her husband

I really have to laugh at all of you. I never mentioned Elizabeth in ANY of my posts and yet all of you have jumped to her defense. Are you feeling guilty about something she did? Cleary you are!!! Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud

^^ Seriously sassy? You are going to claim that because you did not use the character's name that you were NOT referring to Liz? That's laughable. Posters here sited Sam's poor choice in the episode observed, yet you referred to Liz as a way to bash that character as you support Sam. Liz wasn't even featured on the episode yet she's the scapegoat for Sam's poor decision-making. Again, Sam-love equals Liz-hate for some of her fans.

At least she doesn't have multiple children that she leaves with their elderly grandmother or in daycare 24/7 and she didn't leave Danny unattended to crawl out the front door!!!

Those are your words Sassy..please don't insult me by now feigning innocence over who we were talking about...Unless of course you can name someone else that description fits

Glad that you admit that Elizabeth did/does those things!!! Wink Laughing out loud

It's not an admission as to that being what Liz did/does, it's a statement of fact that this is how you interpret Liz's actions through your hate-filled haze.

I thought better of you Sassy. So disingenuous!

Not disingenuous at all. Just being honest. I never mentioned Elizabeth's name. All of you presumed that my comments must of course be about her. Just because you are of that opinion doesn't make it so.

It's how I see it, too. LOL! Where were Liz's kids when she was waving her booty in front of Nikolas. Some Mother of the Year, there!

And like I said if you did not mean Liz name the person you meant

Since you can't I will just call it as I see it...some people just like to stir the pot and that would be you..You hate Liz just continue to own it without the riddles.

Mark those words when your girl starts to scratch her itch with McBain or AJ

Ravennite - Sorry but I'm not taking the bait. I don't have to name any name. If I had wanted to do that I would have in my original post. Since you think you know exactly who I was talking about I don't need to elaborate on my original comment. The end.

Ravenite - before the New Year, Sam will be scratching that itch and probably on Jason's couch.

Baby Jason will probably be placed in a planter outside the door

GHvetfan - Shady and disingenuous? So your calling me childish names now? Aren't you doing exactly what you said I had previously done to you and that you didn't feel was proper discourse? Hypocritical don't you think?

Hey Sassy - I didn't say I was speaking to you. You just assumed that. Guilty?

Anyhoo, those are not name calling. They are descriptives of a situation.

Who else has a grandmother on the show who babysits their kids? Who else had a child run down by a drunk driver because the child got out the front door? No one but Liz. The rest of your description is just your I-hate-Liz spin on and interpretation of the events. So there isn't anyone else you could have been talking about. You are trying to be cute, but you failed.

Any one that has ever turned their head for a few seconds when it came to a child knows very well that accidents happen all of the time. I've seen parents with their children at the mall stop for a few seconds to look for a particular store and the next thing you know one of their children has wandered off.

Just being honest...GHVetfan never mentioned you by name so just because you are of that opinion doesn't make it so
