HomeTVGeneral HospitalGeneral Hospital: Perkie’s Observations Perkie February 4, 2013 General Hospital, TV Recap 15 Comments Anna is shocked when Rafe swears he watched John McBain kill his mother. Anna points out that Rafe was found with the murder weapon. Rafe admits he pulled it out in hopes of helping his mother. Rafe explains they were in town to find Lucy, and Alison gave him the weapon for protection. He mentions having lunch with Molly, then heading back to the alley. Rafe has a memory of someone who looks like John killing his mother, and then being arrested by John. He begs Anna to believe him. John tells Sam that Alison was murdered, and Rafe was found kneeling over the dead body. Sam fills him in on her conversation with Lucy about Caleb. Apparently, Caleb was Rafe’s father, and neither Rafe Sr. nor Caleb have been seen for years. Britt informs Lulu that Maxie has been lying to her, and exposes the one night stand with Spinelli. Lulu admits Maxie told her, but she's just as upset with Britt for keeping things about the pregnancy from her and Dante. Britt apologizes for keeping Lulu out of the loop, and promises to tell her everything from now on. However, Britt doesn’t divulge the baby’s true paternity. Patrick asks Sabrina about Britt’s comments, but Liz arrives and explains ELQ's funds are frozen. When Patrick steps away to answer a call, Sabrina updates Liz on what happened between Patrick and Britt. She also mentions how Britt exposed her for wanting Patrick for herself. Liz believes Sabrina should tell Patrick how she feels, but Sabrina doesn’t think he’s interested. Liz convinces her to say something, and when Patrick returns, she urges Sabrina to say it now. Felicia and Mac are happy to see Kevin, who tells them all about his vampire filled visit with Lucy. He thinks the collapse of her company and coming back to PC triggered the return of her fantasies. Mac and Felicia feel he shouldn't give up on Lucy so quickly. They believe Kevin and Lucy belong together, and Lucy will put the vampire stuff behind her once and for all. Molly realizes Rafe is the boy charged with killing his mother, and TJ convinces her to talk to the police. They head to the station and she tells John and Sam what happened earlier with Rafe. Molly mentions Rafe said he wishes he were sometimes free of his mother. However, she doesn’t believe he would kill her. Sam reminds her she barely knows Rafe, or what he’s capable of. Todd’s returns to Ferncliff and speaks with Lucy. He couldn't lie at the hearing, because Starr sat in on it. Now, his case will go to trial. Suddenly, Heather shows up and claims to have a plan. However, Todd wants nothing to do with her. At first, neither does Lucy, but her tune changes when Heather swears she can get them out. Todd eventually decides he wants in on the plan, because he refuses to go back to prison. Lucy worries about Heather’s plan, but Todd points out Heather has escaped more than once. He asks Heather what she has up her sleeve. Heather explains she’s gotten friendly with the staff, and made them believe they are underpaid. The Ferncliff staff has planned a walk out tonight, and the three of them will join them. After Lulu leaves, Maxie begs Britt not to tell the truth about the baby. She promises to do anything to keep Britt quiet. Britt says her relationship with Patrick is over, but Maxie can help her destroy Sabrina. John enters the room to talk to Rafe, who accuses him of killing his mother. As Rafe is being taken away, he sees Molly and calls out to her. He swears he didn't kill Alison. John informs Sam that Rafe claims John is the killer. Sam is sure Rafe is just trying to protect himself. Felicia’s alone in the bar, when Frisco arrives. Todd, Heather and Lucy are sneaking out of Ferncliff dressed as guards. Just as they are almost out of the door, Kevin arrives and catches them. Caleb Morley returns to the scene of the crime. 15 Responses Perkie February 4, 2013 Loved, loved, loved all things Todd/HEather/Lucy. I’m just disapointed that Kevin got there when he did, because I would have loved to see the three of them out on the lam! Hated everything Sabrina/Liz. If they really want me to believe that Sabrina is the one for Patrick, they have to make her stop acting like an annoying 14 year old. Heck, Molly is more mature that she is and I can’t picture her with Patrick either. Yuck. So, there really is a Caleb and it’s not just Lucy’s imagination? Don’t know how I feel about that. Back in the day, when I was but a giggly teenager, Frisco was all the rage (righ behind my love for all things Robert and Anna), so seeing him back brought a smile to my face. But I’m liking Felicia and Mac together, so it will sadden me if they break them up. I’d love to see Frisco and Alexis together, see what kind of chemistry the two have (despite their real life issues) Log in to Reply sweetiepie February 5, 2013 I am so not a fan of the vampire genre, but I must admit I am intrigued. I can’t wait to see how they tie Lucy’s crazy vampire story to reality and now that Caleb has appeared. Sabrina needs to mature. God knows Molly is more mature. While I appreciate that Liz has a friend, the two of them giggling like high Schoolers got on my nerves.

Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 February 5, 2013 GH already wanted to freeze the world and got visited by an alien. I can live with the Caleb storyline and I honestly can say that I enjoy it very, very much. Britt appears to be a sociopath. She was dating Patrick for a hot second and acts all crazy because she lost him. I mean their life together wouldn’t have worked anyway. Patrick is a single father and Britt doesn’t seem like the mother-type. So why go in that deep in the first place? And now she wants to destroy Sabrina!? Yeah what a competition. And that she can’t even do alone, no she needs Maxie’s help. How unprofessional and pathetic. I loved the Heather/Todd/Lucy scenes. Hilarious. Even though I have to say that Ferncliff really is an unbelievable joke. An institution like this would have been closed for years with security issues. But since we are talking vampires and this is a soap I shouldn’t judge over something so little in a fun comedic performance. Shouldn’t John start to look into this whole Caleb mess a little bit more? I mean I get that he doesn’t believe in vampires but two women mistook him for a man named Caleb that Alison was afraid of … and now Alison is murdered and Rafe tells Anna that John is the one who killed her. Shouldn’t that raise some questions??? Seems to be written a little bit after plot that John is going after the kid. Frisco. <3 <3 <3 And Felicia looked like she wanted to hug him. So sweet! :love: Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 February 5, 2013 Well, this explains things now that Caleb is actually alive. I couldn’t believe Caleb was masquerading as John McBain! Like the twist to the story. I guess this is how they will exit the McBain character till things can be worked out with Prospect Park. What I want to see is when Caleb sees Sam (Livie). They had such hot chemistry on Port Charles. Todd, Lucy, and Heather, can you ask for a better trio of crazies???Very funny! Frisco hasn’t aged much, still handsome! Looking forward to the scenes with Felicia, and then Maxie and Mac. Loving seeing all my old favorites! Can’t wait to see Laura. I have a feeling she’ll be a much stronger character now, which is what Genie always wanted. Love her darker blonde hair-coloring. Can’t wait to see the Luke and Scotty scenes. I also like Rafe- a good young actor. Keep him, for Molly. Log in to Reply NERescuer February 5, 2013 This storyline is horrible, Sabrina has the emotional maturity of a teenager or a preteen. I do not see Patrick going from loving a mature woman like Robin to one like Sabrina. The whole Patrick, Sabrina and Brit storyline is simply terrible. I am loving the John/Caleb and Sam storyline. The Heather, Todd and Lucy story should be a hoot. The new actor who plays Rafe is really good. Log in to Reply pjc722 February 5, 2013 Unfortunately I did not catch last night’s episode so I will have to catch it tonight to see the reveal of Caleb. If they can believably rewrite the story that Lucy and Alison were somewhat delusional than I might buy this whole thing. But please don’t write it like you write all the other stories on here with a very weak link that the fans are suppose to suck up like a “who shot JR” scenario! Speaking of weak links… this Heather has a plan and was able to convince all the staff to stage a walk out tonight because of low pay AT AN MENTAL PRISON since she is a patient is ridiculous!!! For one thing, why would any staff listen to a woman who has been in this hospital for years and keeps getting sent back?!! It just makes no sense. I can understand ONE or TWO or even four staff believing her but to say that all the staff would fall for Heather’s plot is just weak and dumb. I would more believe Todd paying off guards to let him escape or Lucy promising FREE KOO-KOO, I mean COE-CO makeup for life to an ugly duckling guard than I would believe Heather being this powerful. COME ON, every day I watch this show where Heather is able to pull the wool over people’s eyes OR Connie is OR even AJ the more I am apt not to watch it tomorrow. If Todd gets out I will be greatly disappointed. I want it to be a trick and that the guards weren’t as dumb as to believe Heather and now they will get the trio when they try to escape. OK, I don’t get Britt being a gyno and not liking kids! I understand that she may not like them then WHY want to deliver them?!! Also, why is it that she can tell part of the story but not all of it concerning Maxie and Spinelli? I mean, the sex part is minimal but the paternity of the kid is devastating news and even more so when Spinelli sues for custody after Lulu has been raising the kid. It’s just dumb. It’s alos unethical in many ways the secrets Britt is keeping and divulging. Sabrina should just go back to grammar school. She may think that patrick is not interested BUT I can guarantee he is not interested. So far, the love of his life has been Robin. Robin was strong minded, tough as nails when she needed to be and loving. Then he chose Britt, who is strong minded, a tough as nails bitch and can be loving when needed. Then you have Sabrina. She’s a nursing student so no more than 21/22 years old. She’s timid. She loves to babysit 5 year olds (no matter how adorable) on a Friday night or New Year’s Eve. She can’t tell him for the best 6 months that her loins ACHE for him. And she is just mousy. She is a “little sister” to Patrick and no matter how sweet they write her Patrick should not go to her because she is so not what he is into. I am not saying Britt is but I would rather see them pair him with Liz than with a poodle like Sabrina. That’s my take. What’s yours? Log in to Reply Ravennite613 February 5, 2013 Let’s see Wow even I wanted to smack Sabrina around today. I agreed with Liz when she said to just tell him, I mean after the abuse you took from Britch this would not be any worse. I don’t buy her or this storyline, even if I dodn’t know that Robin was alive it would still be a loss I was a hit or miss watcher back when Frisco was on but even I smiled when he walked thru that door..and for me it’s because he’s Maxie’s bio dad The 3 Musketeers (with a screw loose) were too funny, and I kept thinking this is why we need Todd Oh Caleb of the bad weave how I am glad you really are real. I agree with the above poster who mentioned that John really needs to buy a clue it’s one thing when one person calls you Caleb, but then it’s two and there are other people (i.e. Kevin) who can confirm a Caleb existed – maybe it’s time to do some research. Until I see DNA proof that this little puppy is Spin’s I am not buying it…I am living in a little bubble called DENIAL Log in to Reply angrierblackerman February 5, 2013 Ron Carlivati: “If I can’t have Brandon Buddy as Cole, dammit, I’ll make a new character and cast Brandon Buddy’s twin!” Rafe reminds me of Brandon Buddy (Cole from OLTL), lol! Log in to Reply Yoryla February 5, 2013 The look in Felicia’s eyes, when Frisco walked in was magical! I am really glad that this all brings more storyline for Felicia! I love Kristina Wagner and she is still as beautiful and cute as ever. I only wondered why on earth did the episode not end with Frisco? I’m sorry, but the return of such an iconic character after an 18-year abscence is way more important than Caleb. Having said that, I did enjoy seeing Caleb, although I was surprised by it. Caleb IS hot, hotter than John McBain. If someone had once told me I would be seeing a scene where Heather Webber, Lucy Coe & Todd Manning would escape a mental facility together, I would have laughed in their face. This threesome is made in soap opera heaven!!! Love it! Loved the banter between Liz & Sabrina (although I still think it should be about Liz and not Sabrina). Glad to see Sabrina with a little more oomph concerning Britt. Maxie is just such a little wench. I cannot believe she would do this to Robin’s husband and daughter. Loved Lulu getting serious with Dr. Britt. She came off a little like Laura’s daughter. Log in to Reply Jon February 5, 2013 Rafe is such a cutie. Definitely has that Brandon Buddy vibe. I thought Michael Easton in the Caleb wig was smokin’ hot. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman February 5, 2013 I think the makeup department should make Caleb a little prettier. Shave his stubble, put makeup on him, etc, to create more of a contrast between Caleb and McBain. I was thinking that maybe Caleb is McBain’s Twin. Wasn’t Caleb’s alter ego named Michael Morley? What if Caleb is Michael McBain, John’s twin that was presumed dead? Caleb doesn’t have to be a vampire, he could just be a serial killer who joined a vampire cult. In college, I knew a girl who was a ‘vampire’. She filed her teeth into fangs, drank animal blood, wore black lipstick and leather, etc. Slept mostly during the day (she scheduled all night classes). Those exist actually. People (humans) who live as vampires, drink blood and engage in various macabre acts. Lucy and Alison wouldn’t be wrong in what they experienced. Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones February 5, 2013 AngrierBlackMan, I’ve thought SOME of the theories that you’ve posted (especially the vampire cult), but you filled all that in quite nicely. Well done. Log in to Reply Ravennite613 February 5, 2013 [quote=angrierblackerman]I think the makeup department should make Caleb a little prettier.

I am intrigued to see how Ron plans to wrap this story up since has has gone on record that vampires won’t be showing up in Port Charles. And I guess we can look forward to a Caleb masquerading as John story to go on for a bit while all this Prospect Park stuff gets sorted out. I could watch Todd, Heather and Lucy hanging around the looney bin all day every day. The three of them are hilarious together. And I am going to need Sabrina to be much more assertive now that Britt has declared war on her. The whole mouses thing has worn out its welcome.
