General Hospital: Perkie's Observations


Alexis, John and Sam are discussing Lucy, when Kevin shows up out of nowhere. Apparently, he received Alexis' messages, and had to return to Port Charles.
Kevin explains Lucy believed she was a vampire slayer, and had a whole story mapped out in her head. She even thought he had a daughter, Livvie. He was forced to leave Lucy to protect his kids.  Kevin believes Lucy can now get the help she needs.  Alexis is surprised Kevin would leave Lucy this way.  He feels he should step aside, and let the doctors help her.  Alexis thinks he should support his ex-wife.

Todd calls Connie to find out why there was no newspaper printed today.  She explains his staff wasn’t welcoming to her, but she fixed the issue herself. The Sun will be sent out later than usual with the ELQ story on the cover.  Lucy overhears Todd say he’ll be getting out soon. 
Lucy wants to know, and get in on Todd’s plan to escape.  Todd isn’t interested in teaming up, but Lucy wears him down. He agrees to include her as long as she tells everyone he’s crazy. He plans to fake DID. 
Sonny runs into Tracy and reminds her he can’t get involved in her scheme because of Michael. He advises her to let AJ self-destruct.   Tracy reveals she has taken matters into her own hands, and AJ won’t be CEO for much longer.   Sonny is worried Michael will be caught in the crossfire. Tracy isn't bothered by something happening to Michael in the least bit.
Starr and Michael visit Connie to ask her to drop the charges against Kristina.  Connie refuses, because she has to protect herself.  She mentions Todd being crazy, which catches Starr by surprise.  Connie tells her Todd is in Ferncliff.  Starr heads off to see her father.  
Monica stops by ELQ to congratulate AJ, and warn him that Tracy will not go down without a fight. She also reminds him Michael will need time to adjust to the corporate world. At that moment, Michael arrives, ready for his first day at work. 
Alice meets with Tracy in place of Ned, who had to fly out to check on an ailing Brook Lynn.  Ned left his mother a note, which mentions Heather's comments about the will and Carly possibly having information about another Quartermaine heir. Tracy realizes she needs to stop the ELQ story from coming out.  
Sonny runs into Olivia, and explains what happened between Kristina and Connie.   He thinks Connie is punishing him by not dropping the charges.  Olivia thought things had gotten better between Sonny and Connie, and asks if they kissed.  Sonny admits they’ve connected, and he cares about Connie. However, he's still very much in love with Kate.  
Alison and her son Rafe return to town.  She’s determined to find Lucy, so she can help her protect Rafe.  Alison heads to the PCPD to speak with John, but can't believe her eyes when she sees him. Alison gasps, and calls him Caleb. 
Starr arrives at Ferncliff, just as Todd is showing Lucy his best impersonation of a person with DID. Starr knows he’s pretending to have the disease like he did when she was a kid. She still has the tape of him confessing to it.  Starr wants him to take responsibility for once.  Todd reminds her he spent 8 years being tortured, but she’s angry he protected Johnny and spit on Cole and Hope’s grave.  Starr threatens go to the police with the tape if Todd pretends to have DID.  When the orderly comes to get Todd for his evaluation, she decides she will sit in on it with him.  
Tracy runs to Connie's to stop the presses.  Unfortunately, she's too late, and the story is out.  Tracy claims she’s ruined, and will lose her sons.  Connie promises not to say anything, or reveal Tracy as her source. She feels they’ve become friends.  
AJ gets a call about the article and finds a copy of the paper. He's shocked to see the headline.  Monica is sure Tracy leaked the story, but AJ doesn’t believe it. He’s sure Sonny is responsible, but Michael refuses to believe his father would be behind the story. AJ remembers seeing Sonny meet with Tracy, and decides to find out the truth from Connie.  
Lucy’s sad her chances of leaving with Todd have disappeared.  Suddenly, Kevin arrives, and she’s thrilled to see him. 
Sonny visits Connie again to ask for leniency for Kristina.  Connie refuses to budge on her position, and feels Kris has to pay.  Sonny promises to give her something in exchange, and kisses her. Connie’s angry he thinks he can play her. 
Soon after, AJ arrives and demands to know where Connie got the story.  Connie points to Sonny, and says he gave it to her.

Even though the actress hasn't been doing anything lately (that I know of), I just find it hard to believe that Erin Hershey would come back to PC only to be killed a few episodes later. They could have recast the part or just brought on Rafe Jr. to avenge the death of his mother offscreen. But who knows...

And I loved seeing Kevin, but why was he such a dick? He just came to PC to tell Alexis what he thought about Lucy and was going to leave without even seeing her? Have they been seperated? Weird.

Believe it or not, not all actors and actresses are as invested in the characters they play as some fans are. Maybe she's just back to give the character a proper sendoff.

Loved seeing Kevin, even though I thought he was acting a little weird for him. I was surprised they went with the story of Lucy making up Livvie and Caleb in her head.

Loved seeing EH back as Allison! I severly miss the original recipe Rafe though, BG was so good looking, it's a shame they didn't bring him back in some way. I've said this before on here, but I loved Livvie and Caleb ALMOST as much as I did Rafe and Allison. And I thought that ME and EH had chemistry back then also (who else remembers the hot barn sex Caleb and Allison had because of the wish baby-rabie-minded Livvie made on Caleb's ring??),they could've given her a different story now and made a triangle between her, Sam, and McBain.

I don't see MB as a sex symbol anymore, so seeing him mackin' on anyone, especially Connie is just unappealing. When Connie used to kiss Sonny, she would always wipe her mouth or make faces behind his back when they were done. I just don't think she'd be falling for Sonny so soon. They should really put this DID storyline out to pasture.

Michael McBain came on as John's brother, Max and Gabby's son AL Holden Died, You should get your facts straight! Michael NEVER saw AL in ANY MIRROR!

Al Holden died, his love for Marcie was so strong that his spirit came back to earth. Appearing to Marcie in visions, Al saw his chance to be with her when Michael died after taking the wrong medication. Seeing another chance, Al's soul entered Michael's body. However, there was a catch--Marcie believed him to be Michael. That same day, Al's deceased stepmother, Luna, told Al that he only had until Valentine's Day to make Marcie recognize him. As the months went on, Al got closer to his goal, but then learned that he would lose his memories if he succeeded in getting Marcie to fall in love with Michael. On Valentine's Day, Marcie finally realized the truth when she saw Al in Michael's eyes. Al then told Marcie that although his spirit had to go to heaven, Michael would have his soul. After a final kiss, Al left for heaven, and Michael and Marcie had no recollection of his ever being there. However, both did remember their courtship of the last few months and started a new relationship.

So yea John has FAMILY and HISTORY on OLTL and that is where John needs to be! WITH HIS FAMILY!

I was being jokey/facetious. Calm down. Life's too short.
