General Hospital: Perkie's Observations


Johnny wonders when Todd will be transferred to Pentonville, but Todd explains he's being taken to Ferncliff instead. He tells Johnny all about playing the crazy card in court. Johnny knows Todd won’t be able to escape the high security mental facility, but Todd believes he can fool the doctors. Johnny taunts that he won’t have Carly, because she’s through with him. However, Todd doesn’t see it that way. 

Patrick searches for Sabrina, and Liz tells him she's taking care of stuff for the ball.  Patrick wonders if he did something to offend Sabrina, since she’s avoiding him. Patrick also doesn’t understand why Emma hasn’t cliqued with Britt. Liz isn't surprised by Emma's attitude towards Britt. Patrick wants to know what Liz has against Britt. Liz brings up Britt being vicious to all the nurses, especially Sabrina.  Patrick still doesn’t see the connection, and Britt interrupts the two before they can finish their conversation. 
Britt asks to go skating with Patrick and Emma, and Patrick hesitates. She wonders if he truly wants her to develop a relationship with Emma. Patrick agrees, and heads off to pick up Emma. 
Felix and Sabrina discuss her chances with Patrick, while waiting to meet with Carly.  When Carly arrives, Felix loves her new look. Carly admits she showed off to Todd.  Felix says Sabrina needs to pull the same move on Patrick, and Carly is surprised to hear about the attraction. Sabrina quickly points out Patrick is already involved with Britt. Carly claims she’s going to be alone for a while, and Felix asks about AJ. However, Carly has nothing good to say about him.   
Carly secures the Metro Court Ballroom for the Nurse’s Ball, and finds irony in doing something in Robin’s honor.  When Sabrina returns to the hospital, she tries to be nice to Britt. A snarky Britt informs her that she’s going skating with Patrick and Emma. 
Epiphany reads John the riot act for leaving the hospital too soon, while giving him a fresh set of stitches. Sam shows up, so Pif leaves. John explains Lucy tore out some of his stitches when she jumped on him at the courthouse. He also breaks the news to her about Todd going to Ferncliff instead of Pentonville. Sam is upset Todd is basically going to get off for his misdeeds by pleading insanity.  Sam wants to make sure Todd pays, and John assures her he'll take care of it. He warns Sam to stay out of it.

Michael tells AJ that Tracy knows he went to see Lucy.  AJ explains he told Lucy he believed her vampire story.  Michael doesn’t want him taking advantage of someone’s mental illness.   AJ mentions running into Heather, but Michael doesn’t trust her.  AJ continues on about Heather, and brings up Edward's will. He admits he hasn’t found anything in there to help them secure ELQ. Michael updates AJ on Heather's terrible antics involving Jason and Sam. He feels there has to be another way to get ELQ, which doesn't involve Heather.

Ned is back in town to help Tracy in the battle for ELQ.  Tracy wants to make sure Lucy continues to be crazy, because her shenanigans will keep AJ away. Tracy needs to neutralize him.  Ned understands a bad psych evaluation will make Lucy’s vote useless, but he’s not happy with his mother’s current plan. 
Todd is less than thrilled when John arrives to escort him to Ferncliff.
Tracy worries AJ may have changed, therefore they can’t afford to dismiss him.  Ned wants Tracy to give up ELQ, and let AJ take over. Tracy proclaims ELQ is her legacy, and she refuses to relinquish it.  Ned’s worried about the toll this is taking on her. He feels his mother has nothing to prove to anyone anymore.  Tracy asks if he is with or against her. Ned feels they need to find out where she’s vulnerable, first. Then, they have to come up with a strategy to beat AJ.  He asks if there is anything out there that can hurt her, and she claims there isn’t.  Ned knows it is important to keep AJ away from Lucy. Tracy tells him they need to figure AJ’s next move, and calls Sonny. 
AJ asks about Johnny, but Michael isn’t sure about working with him.  AJ explains Skye had information on Tracy, but she gave to Anthony. He thinks Johnny must be in possession of it now.  Michael agrees to help, and heads off to see Johnny in prison.

The problem with johnny is easily solved. They have a ton of story coming up with the elq battle and they probably are going to have to focus a bunch on todd/john/starr in order to exit them from the canvas. As part of the negotiations with PP they could have PP write cole and hope's non death in to the tapestry of new oltl. Since they have bunches of story and a bit of a crowded canvas, johnny COULD go to jail for a month or two and then suddenly he is wheeled in to the ER out of the blue with a brain tumor. Rumors have maxie getting ill as part of her pregnancy so they could be placed in the same wing. Or if they want to go with Liz, liz could be his nurse. Or Sabrina. Maybe he loses some loss of his legs and he has to do rehab with Ellie. Heck there is even triangle potential with liz vs. maxie.

Then I agree the problem is johnny has no family on the canvas. Again easily fixed - either resurrect a reformed claudia or retcon johnnys paternity. Again, according to rumors, stefan/SN may be coming back to the canvas. Stefan could lay eyes on johnny at the dock and say to him that he reminds him of his first love as he has her eyes. making him a cassadine ties him to stefan, nik, alexis, kristina, molly and sam. I am SURE sam might have something to say about her cousin trying to chose between one of her besties and her main nemesis.

As for the lack of men, why not bring jax or yeah recast dillon before adding any newbies. Its a shame JK is going to the new Oltl as he would have made a great dillon. I dont think he was so enmeshed in the oltl universe that it would be confusing to see him as dillon mixing it up with any of the oltl people, the way it might if say Eddie Alderson was cast as rafe.

This episode was great!

Always love to see Ned.

THIS is the Tracy Q I know - all geared up and ready to fight! Loved her calling Sonny - it's totally plausible.

Love how much Sean Kanan and Cahd Duell look alike! Michael totally is AJ's mini-me.

Carly looked faboosh!!! God I love her new hair!

Elizabeth, tell Patrick what a witch that Britch is!!! Well, she did try. Loved her expressions when listening to the Britch and making her say please.
