General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

The Quartermaines say their goodbyes to Edward in the crypt, but soon begin squabbling about AJ and his many mistakes. Michael steps up and stops the argument.   Tracy seems to be the family member struggling the most with Edward’s passing. AJ says a few words about Edward, and claims that his own ‘death’ changed him into the man he should be. He promises to make Edward proud.  Tracy places Edward’s cap on his tombstone. 
 


Molly and Kristina run into Sam at the funeral and invite her to dinner.  As they’re leaving, Kris runs into Trey, who’s been living and working at the church since Maxie evicted him.  She offers to buy him lunch. 
 
Maxie has no interest in Spinelli now that he’s chosen Ellie over her.  Spin updates Sam on Maxie's latest confession, and the outcome of the situation. Sam asks what Spin would have done if Ellie wasn’t in the picture, but he doesn't think it matters. He changes the conversation topic to Jason’s investigation.  Sam admits John thinks Jason is dead, and wonders if Spin thinks the same thing.
 
Spinelli points out there is no proof that Jason is alive. He wants to believe in Jason's return, but he doesn’t have Sam's faith.  Ellie arrives, and apologizes for being late.  Spin introduces her to Sam and the baby.  She asks if Maxie was able to comfort him for the funeral in her absence, but he admits Maxie didn’t. 
 
Maxie wants Lulu to tell her what to do with her life, since she has no job or purpose.  Lulu explains about the failed adoption and the possible surrogacy.  Lulu says they met with potential candidates, but didn’t feel comfortable with any of them.  Maxie offers to be the surrogate for Lulu and Dante.
 
Molly joins Starr at Kelly’s, and tells her that she finished writing her novel.  Starr wants to check it out, and is thrilled with what she reads.  Starr asks if Molly will try to get it published, but Molly is sure no publisher would care.  Starr says her father is a publisher, and offers to get him to read it. 
 
Kristina wonders what Trey has planned for the immediate future.  He says he came to town to do the show with her, but is thinking of leaving since his father is gone.  Trey is unsure of his next move.
 
Diane arrives at the Quartermaine mansion for the reading of the will.  Diane lists the grandchildren, which include Skye, Jason, Ned and Dillon, but not AJ.  Michael points out that AJ is also a grandchild, but Diane mentions he was dead when the will was made. However, the will states, ‘living grandchildren' and AJ is now alive, so Diane includes him.  They receive 60% of Edward’s ELQ shares.  Tracy is shocked, since this leaves her with 40%. 
 
Diane continues on that 30% of the shares will be divided between the great grandchildren, Maya, Lila Rae, Michael, Brooke and Danny.  Tracy can't believe she's only been left with 10%, but Diane breaks it to her that the remaining percentage is to be split between Monica and Alice. 
 
Tracy is shocked her father left her nothing.  Ned asks about the dispersal of Edward's cash and material possessions.  Diane says 50% goes to Habitat for Humanity, and the rest to PBS.  After everyone leaves, Diane pulls out a box and admits Edward left her something.  Tracy opens it, and finds a jar of Lila’s homemade relish.

I will have to rewatch it but didn't Diane say 12% before Michael established AJ should get his share??

I loved the fact that Tracy only received a jar of Lila's pickle relish, since she and Luke stole Jake's inheritance when Alan died. And yes, we all know that Liz/Jason/Jake had no idea that Alan left the little boy an inheritance.

JE as Tracy Q has been the bomb the last few weeks, so here's hoping that the actress continues to be front and center where she no longer has to wait on AG's Luke for a story line.

I agree with perkie. thought it was unnecessarily cruel since apparently he didnt even explain in the will why she got nothing. Im also baffled about the percentage. tracy did steal the inheritance that really should go to danny now that jake is dead as well as the shares alan left skye and it stands to reason that if alan had shares tracy would have been given some shares in her own right as well. with her shares, the jasons baby shares, the skye shares through alan and ned and dillons support that should give her control of the company. Im also confused as to how the shares work out if aj wasnt accounted for in the 12 percent and now he counts. Finally what happened to sonny and jax having shares. didnt sonny have jasons shares and jax have shares at some point. And didnt paul hornsby have shares. i suspend a lot of reason at times with soaps but if you are going to tell a story where who has what shares matter, then those shares should be explained even with a throw away line like tracy saying she sold her shares to keep them out of anthony's hands. I can tell you for example on bold and the beautiful who exactly owns what shares of the company.

When Alan's will was changed, didn't someone find out what Tracy and Luke had done and have it changed back? For some reason I'm remembering it that Tracy didn't get away with it. Although that could totally be something that I made up in my head, which I did plenty in the horrid Guza years!!

I think the problem with the whole Edward not leaving Tracy anything has more to do with John Ingle, for me. The last we saw of Edward he was this frail old man, willing to give up his antidote to save a little girl who isn't even a part of his family. He also seemed to be in a good place with Tracy at that time. I can't picture that man leaving nothing for his daughter.

I think if JI hadn't passed and they were simply getting rid of the Edward character by having him pass, and the last we saw of him was his old curmudgeonly old self, yelling at Tracy and Alice, then I can picture that Edward being cold hearted.

I thought it was just Alans ghost coming to make her feel guilty..I don't think they were caught. At the time that they changed the will did Tracy know about Jake? I thought Luke told her after Liz told Laura?

I thought they all knew tracy changed the will but couldnt prove it and given that no one wanted to run the company they just let it stand. They didnt know about jake at the time so it wasnt like monica had a grandchild to fight for, she had no love loss for skye at the time so she wasnt apt to go to bat to benefit her (vs. tracy who she has a long history with) aj had to stay hidden so monica wasnt going to go to bat for him, and jason didnt want to run the company. those were the people that got cheated from the change and thats why i thought they left it.
