HomeTVGeneral HospitalGeneral Hospital: Perkie’s Observations Perkie January 16, 2013 General Hospital, TV Recap 17 Comments Connie thanks Sonny for taking her home, but she feels he should leave immediately. He wants to make sure she’s okay, and Connie assures him she's fine. She has everything she needs, except her son. Connie thinks Sonny is sticking around in case Kate emerges, but Sonny claims he's there to help. Connie doesn’t trust him, but Sonny maintains his only reason for staying is support. When he tries to leave, Connie asks him to stay and sit with her. Lucy goes to Kelly’s, and freaks out when she sees John. She calls him Caleb, the King of vampires. Things go from bad to worse when Sam appears, and Lucy calls her Livvie. Sam and John are confused by Lucy’s rantings about vampires. Lucy pulls out a crucifix, and shouts Caleb has worked his voodoo on Livvie. John ushers Sam and the baby out, and assures Sam he can deal with Lucy on his own. Suddenly, Lucy comes outside, and stabs John in the chest with a piece of wood from a broken chair. Carly lets herself into Todd’s hotel room, and informs AJ she’s there for revenge. AJ’s worries when Carly grabs a pair of scissors, but she only cuts up Todd’s clothes. AJ grabs the scissors, and she wonders if he’s going to kill her. AJ won't give her the satisfaction, and admits he’s having too much fun watching her suffer. He knows she did all of this to herself. Diane visits Johnny, and is less than pleased about his tussle with Todd. He tells her Todd goaded him, so he could escape from the hospital. Diane doesn’t believe him, but Johnny advises her to stop Todd from escaping. Felix and Sabrina are on duty, when Todd is brought in. Todd manages to grab a paper clip to later get out of his handcuffs. Sabrina spots Starr, and breaks the news to her that Todd is in the hospital. Starr finds her father, who claims Johnny started the whole thing. He swears he didn’t provoke him. Starr doesn't believe him for a second, and expresses her discontent with Todd for breaking her trust again. Todd tells Starr he loves her, as she leaves. Michael offers to take Kristina home and stay with her. Steven gives her Trey’s belongings. Kris opens the package, and finds Joe Jr.'s old religious medal. She wonders if Trey knew he was nothing like his father. Steve informs Todd he’s free to go back to jail. Todd calls him Dr. Drake, which causes Steve to hesitate. He orders a CT scan to make sure Todd's isn't faking. Diane arrives, just as Todd is about to escape. She asks how Carly and Starr will feel when they learn he took off. She also vows to be done with him if he escapes. Lucy screams she’s trying to keep Port Charles safe from the forces of darkness, as Alexis and Shawn arrive. He grabs Lucy to detain her, until the police arrive. Meanwhile, Sam begs John not to die on her like Jason did. Alexis asks Lucy why she would stab John. Lucy swears he's not John, but a dangerous vampire named Caleb Morley. She continues on, and tells Alexis that Sam isn't her daughter, but she's Kevin's daughter, Livvie Locke. AJ taunts Carly about her relationship with Johnny and Todd. He tears into her and says she’s spent years using people, only to be used back. Carly grabs the scissors and starts to cut her hair, because she can’t stand the sight of herself. AJ stops her, and she cries in his arms. He places her to bed to sleep it off. John is brought into GH, as Todd dressed like a doctor, attempts to leave. Sabrina unknowingly asks Todd to examine John. John immediately recognizes Todd in disguise. Todd tries to run, but Sam stops him. The police grab him, and Sam declares there's some unfinished business between them. 17 Responses Perkie January 16, 2013 I don’t know if it was just the mood I was in, but I found so many things funny today. Almost eerything that came out of Todd’s mouth. AJ’s line about Carly being drunk and stabby. Everything John and Lucy until she stabbed him, especially him calling her Buffy. Diane getting ready to give Lucy her card until she heard her rantings. Log in to Reply Secrets and Lies January 16, 2013 The Diane/Johnny scenes were awesome. LOL at Todd flirting with Felix to distract him. The lower Todd stoops the more I have to root for him. The Lucy/Caleb/Livvie thing is intriguing – is it possible Lucy is right and Sam is not Sam? Log in to Reply logan_echolls January 16, 2013 OMG, that would be so awesome if Sam is not really Sam. That would mean she’s not Alexis daughter and that whole stupid plot point could go away. Sam should have never been Alexis’ daughter.

The funniest was Felix (I’m starting to really like the character)and Todd! I laughed over the “balls” and “I might swell” lines. I have to say it again I just love Roger Howarth!!! You never know what he is going to do in a scene. I love how Todd always turns to little boy mode when he’s caught doing something wrong. Laura Wright was fabulous in her scenes! Finally Carly got back some of her own medicine. I thought her and Sean acted well together. The Lucy, Sam and John scenes were hysterical. John saying, “I was just demoted from king to prince of darkness”. Glad Easton is getting recognition for his role as Caleb the vampire. He was so good in that role and I’ll say it again, it was way before the “Twilight” movies. It will be interesting to see where this story goes. When Lucy said “you are Caleb Morely” the way John turned and looked at her, he really did look like Caleb!Also liked the Dianne and Johnny scenes. Would like to see Diane more on the show, she is so funny! She needs a new man! Still don’t see any chemistry between Shawn and Alexis. She needs a more exciting guy! Log in to Reply bishbay January 16, 2013 It would be awesome if Sam were not Sam. If Sam were just…anybody else, really. I kid, I kid. Sam is so much better now that that fool Jason is gone and she’s on the backburner. Log in to Reply katehhoward January 16, 2013 This episode was hilarious. I was rooting for Carly ad AJ to get it in. I have to admit that AJ and Carly make a really good couple the chemistry between them was explosive. The Connie and Sonny scenes were moving. I think by now we should all agree that Kate is not coming back. And I myself who loved and admired Megan Ward as Kate Howard has accepted that fact. Kelly was unable to pull off a good Fashionista Kate persona. Connie should remain because there is more story to tell. When is Rick returning? Is Diane the only lawyer in town? Alexis has not won a case in lord knows how long. I would rather see Rick return to defend Todd or Johnny. Diane is great but we need someone who can go toe to toe with her. Alexis is not cutting it. Speaking of Alexis they need to give up on the Shawn and Alexis pairing. It just is not working out. Nancy does not seem invested in that coupling. Is Sabrina suppose to be a Nurse? How dumb is she that she did not realize that it was Todd behind the mask? Felix was great as usual. Tiny Sam jumping on Todd’s back was hysterical. Log in to Reply Jon January 16, 2013 From Lucy staking John to Diane and Johnny to Todd and Felix flirting over balls; this episode was pure camp….and I LOVED IT! Log in to Reply Ravennite613 January 16, 2013 OMFG I FLOVED this episode – Funny, quirky, hilarious and then moving and emotional I must admit that I love Sam now that Jason is gone, and my heart broke a little when she told McBain that she couldn’t lose him too…and the next minute she is taking a spin on Todd’s back trying to stop him…how priceless While I like Todd/Felix flirting it made me uncomfortable that Felix was doing it at his place of work and in front of cops and staff. If I flirting openly like that at work I’d be reprimanded. Kristina still sucks but thankfully I FF all of her and Mikey, though how dare you open that stuff it belonged to Trey’s mother. Carly & AJ – WOW and here I thought that Carly had chemistry with Johnny/Todd that was nothing compared to AJ….These two are freaking FIYAH and when Carly started cutting into her hair and broke down into AJ’s arms I felt it. For me it’s Carly finally meeting her match…I haven’t felt this way since CarSon 1.0 and Penthouse Roughneck Sex. And I truly can’t believe I forgot that Kevin was Livvie’s Dad….I would love for Kevin to be Sam’s Dad Log in to Reply days4ever January 16, 2013 [quote=Perkie]I don’t know if it was just the mood I was in, but I found so many things funny today.

The shows getting really good but I think the character of Konnie could use a break! Log in to Reply wiggum January 16, 2013 I would love if Kevin(or Ryan) were Sam’s dad but wasn’t Kevin on the show with Alexis? WOuldn’t she recognize him?

I’ve always HATED that they made Sam Alexis’ daughter. It was so forced and contrived. I just had to add that I agree this episode was very funny! The comment Todd said to Felix about something swelling up and Diane about to give her card to Lucy and then just standing their in shock at Lucy’s crazy fit. Log in to Reply JASAMMABBY January 16, 2013 I just have to say I loved this episode and I love these writers.. They must be geniuses if they can make me feel bad for Carly. She was just awesome as broken- and cutting off her own hair.. I saw her new cut on twitter and it looks great- she really has the best hair.. Anyhow- if you can take two characters like Carly and AJ and actually make me root for them- then BRAVO!! Also- OMG I loved Lucy- COMBUST, COMBUST!! Along with all the other funny stuff mentioned. Lucy and McBam were so fun to watch. And Sam jumping on Todds back at the end.. So great! I could have done with out Krissy, Michael and Star. But everything else was so golden I really could care less.. Ohhhh- and Johnny and Diane!! Loved it.. Log in to Reply Daniel St. John January 16, 2013 I loved this episode aside from the Sonny/Connie and Kristina scenes. Todd was hilarious from flirting with Felix to trying to disguise himself as a doctor. And the sight of tiny Sam on Todd’s back was too funny. Lucy the Vampire Slayer was good too. I am going to guess that we will find out (probablyobce Kevin arrives) that all of the fantastical events from Port Charles were all in Lucy’s head and my favorite duck loving diva has had a mental breakdown. But the best part of the episode was AJ and Carly. I never thought in a million years that I would ever see an iota of a chance that AJ and Carly could ever be anything other than sworn enemies but Sean Kanan and Laura Wright have amazing chemistry. Sometimes I forget that before they hated each other or even became sex buddies that AJ and Carly were friends. It would be nice to see more of a complicated relationship between the two of them because the blanket hatred makes things very dull. Log in to Reply nysam January 17, 2013 I guess I’m in the minority about what I want from my soaps. I don’t want comedy. I knew they would make Lucy look stupid and they did. Not to mention, Todd’s cartoony antics were up there with the Roadrunner and Wylie Coyote. If I wanted a sitcom I would watch MODERN FAMILY.
