General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Lulu is reading a newspaper article about Johnny receiving a 20-year sentence to Pentonville, when Mac stops by to purchase tickets to the Valentine’s Day dance.  She feels bad for Johnny because he lost everything. Now, Lulu is forced to run The Haunted Star by herself.  Mac complains about Frisco showing up in town to visit Maxie. Lulu worries about the stress on Maxie, and reassures Mac he’s the better man. 
 


Frisco visits Felicia, and complains about Maxie ignoring his calls.  Felicia says Maxie doesn’t trust him, since he always takes off after getting her hopes up.  She advises him to prove his love to Maxie.  Frisco claims to know how important Maxie and Felicia are in his life now. He admits he's come back for them.  
 
Frisco confesses he’s loved Felicia since day one, but Felicia doesn’t think constantly being dumped is love. She's realized over the years he has no room in his life for family. She wants to know why he’s suddenly changing the rules.  Frisco urges Felicia to admit she still loves him, but Felicia says she’s with Mac.  Frisco thinks she’s settling, and knows what they had was special.  
 
Johnny asks to see Starr before being shipped to Pentonville.  She doesn’t want to hear any remorse from him, since it won’t bring her family back.  Johnny knows he can’t bring them back, but can give her something that may help.    
 
Laura watches as Anna and Luke kiss, but quickly leaves.  Anna feels she's not thinking straight, and has no faith in her judgment.  Luke wonders if this is the end.  Anna says having Duke back reminded her of how it used to be, and she wants to feel that again. She believes Luke had the real deal with Laura, but he claims his life with Laura is long over.  Anna thanks him for everything he did when Robin died, but ends their relationship.  
 
Molly hides Rafe in her room, and offers to make him some food.  While she’s gone, Kristina knocks on the door. Rafe panics and hides under the bed.  Kristina is concerned she may be capable of murder, because she wanted Connie dead.  She and Molly talk about Johnny, and Kris mentions she will perform her community service at Pentonville.  
 
TJ expresses his concerns about Molly and her feelings for Rafe to Shawn.  TJ checks his phone, and reads a message stating Rafe is no longer in police custody.  He worries about Molly and calls her to tell her. However, she already knows and assures him everything is fine.
 
Dante demands to know where John has been, and asks about him taking Rafe out of his cell.  John denies Dante's allegations, so Dante shows him the security footage.  John wants Date to talk to Carlson, but Dante informs him Carlson was murdered. He mentions the eyewitness fingered John as the culprit.  Dante tells John the weapon used to murder Carlson was the same one used in Alison's murder. John knows it was down in the evidence room.  Dante shows him the footage of Caleb leaving the room.
 
Lulu is thrilled when Laura shows up at The Haunted Star.  Laura says she came as soon as she heard she was going to be a grandmother.  Lulu asks about Lucky, and Laura informs her that she saw him last year in Ireland.  Laura asks about Luke, and if he’s seeing anyone.  Lulu mentions Anna, but isn’t certain where they stand.  
 
Mac’s not happy to see Frisco back at the bar.  He reminds Frisco of the hurt he caused his daughters, and warns Maxie may not be so forgiving this time.  Frisco feels it’s up to Maxie and Felicia to give him a second chance. He wants to have dinner with them tomorrow.  Mac doesn't think the dinner will happen, because he and Felicia have plans for the Valentine’s Day dance.  Frisco tells Felicia to work on Maxie, because he’s not giving up on either of them.  
 
Rafe thinks he should leave, because he’s putting Molly in danger. Molly doesn't think so, and wants him to stay.
 
Starr visits Lulu, and is overjoyed to meet the infamous Laura.  Laura heads out, and Starr informs Lulu that Johnny gave her his half of the Haunted Star. She and Lulu are official partners. 

Despite the video footage, John swears to Dante and Anna he didn’t steal evidence or escape with Rafe. However, Anna can't go on his word alone, and has no choice but to place him under arrest. 
 
Laura makes a call and informs a mystery person she’s safely in Port Charles. She tells the person they should go ahead with their plans.

    I loved Frisco and Frisco/Felicia back in the day, but he’s seriously pissing me off. That whole attitude that Felicia should still want him after all the years of him treating her like crap is makin me want to punch him.

    Having said that, who else wants to be Felicia, with two gorgeous guys fighting for her.

    Loved the Laura/Lulu scene.

    I find it interesting that Starr is now Lulu’s partner, considering KA is leaving, even briefly.

    Love that Anna dumped Luke, once and for all. Let’s see how fast he runs back to Tracy, despite his undying love for Anna.

    I know the PCPD isn’t played as being that smart, but today’s episode with Anna, Dante and John had me annoyed at how poorly this show is being written. How many months ago was Anna fooled by Faison pretending to be Duke by wearing a fake mask? Was it 2 months? 3 at the most? Why in the world wouldn’t any of these cops stop and think that Faison or a cohort of his is up to the same thing by impersonating John? Why didn’t Anna lunge at John and try to rip his face off? She just had a scene minutes earlier saying her judgment is totally off. Why wouldn’t John offer up that someone is impersonating him as his defense? Anna & Dante would more than likely believe it based on what just happened with Faison/Duke scam.

    My biggest fear right now is that CarTini will make TJ turn into the “Angry Black Man” and that will cause Molly to dump him and run to Rafe. I hate that this is happening to TJ and Molly when we barely got to see them together. They were so sweet and cute during the water crisis. CarTini hates Black ppl.

    So Kristina, a young pretty TEENAGER is going to do community service at Pentonville? Let me guess, something will happen to her and Johnny will rescue her which will lead to him getting out early and a romance between them. I miss Johnny and Ethan. Johnny really needs his friend right now.

    Laura and Lulu had a nice scene but I felt sorry that Laura had to witness AnaL. Thank goodness they broke up.

    Yeah after everything that has happened with Faison, Anna and John (who witness the melting face) should be able to think that maybe someone is pretending to be John?

    Also with the pcpd, how about that Caleb was wearing different clothes and his hair was longer…..
    How about now that they know this, John agrees to wear a monitor to show he isn’t at the places Caleb is…
    I think the stuff we are seeing now was taped before the PP issue, but if not they apparently were confident they could hold onto the three characters..

    YEEEAAHHHH!! My wish came true! Thank you Ron and Frank for FINALLY ending that farce of a romance between Anna and Luke. I clapped my hands as Anna acknowledged the incredible feeling of love she had for Duke and wanted to feel it again. A great moment loyal to the history of this great show.

    John J. York look so damned fine! Mac was my MVP today telling Frisco how he was there for Georgie & Maxie as Frisco traipsed around the world. Mac would win my heart by a landslide versus Frisco! Kristina Wagner looks fabulous but her line delivery does grate. Still, I love to see Felicia on my screen. Frisco on the otherhand…not enjoying it at all. There is a way to portray jealous with out coming off like an ass. Mac ONLY raised his daughters!

    Glad to hear Anna ended that nonsense with Luke. I FFWD their scenes. I love Anna but I am so tired of seeing her cry.

    Glad Genie Francis is back! She looks beautiful as always, though not as good as when she was on Y&R a few months back. Can’t wait for Laura to visit with Liz, Cam and Aiden.

    Wardrobe loves Julie Berman because she is often dressed lovely. I enjoyed the Lulu/Mac scenes too. I enjoy Lulu so much these days in a more supporting role but wish she and Dante were the focus of the surrogacy storyline versus Maxie’s awful behavior.

    @logan_echolls: I don’t think TJ is written poorly or will be written poorly but it’s clear that Molly/Rafe is where the greater energy is (I happen to like Molly/Rafe better than Molly/TJ already.) Also, I am not sure I agree that Cartini hates Black people although them bastards killed my beloved Evangeline Williamson on OLTL! Still, Cartini featured Destiny and gave the Evans’ clan real play the last few months of OLTL.

    I think logan_echolls was kidding about the Cartini hating black people, at least I hope so. I think more diversity is always needed in daytime but I think Cartini did a pretty good job on their stint at OLTL. The Evans as you mentions and of Evangeline and her sister Layla. But also Christian and Antonio along with their mother had been front and center for many years. I also like the fact that they actually gave them meaty storylines and didn’t leave them on the backburner. Loved the John/Evangeline/Natalie triangle.

    Sadly I wasn’t kidding.

    Evangline wasn’t created by CarTini and I believe the sexy romance that was JoVan wasn’t started by CarTini but CarTini made sure when they got in to end it and put John with Natalie. Vangie’s sister had a good romance with Chistian but they wrote her as an afterthought. Thank goodness that actress left and went on to success.

    CarTini made sure to get rid of all the Gannons. Then they brought in that RJ reject only to fire him. Shawn was nothing but a bodyguard and babysitter. The Evans was there once in a while. I think CarTini was watching TVOne, saw an old episode of Good Times and decided to make a Black family with the last name Evans.

    Unlike Liz/Lucky, Georgie/Dillon, Zander/Emily, we never got to see TJ and Molly as a couple. We never got to see them go on dates, experience their first kiss, go on an adventure, nothing. Heck even Juan and Emily had a full fledged romance before Zander was brought into the picture. Juan and Emily had two years together before they had a 3rd party. TJ and Molly already have a 3rd party messing with their relationship when it seems they have only been together for like 6 mos! CarTini didn’t like Molly with this Black teen and decided they wanted to whiten it up so they brought on Rafe.

    ^^ I know Renee Elise Goldsberry left OLTL before Carvialti came onboard but Carvialti unceremoniously killed off the character in that stupid story with Elijah Clarke. Evangeline was barely mourned and Layla given short-shrift. I love Evangeline and still PO’ed about her treatment! ;-)

    No. It was due to money. She felt she deserved more money and they wouldn’t pay her. She went on to do Color Purple. I saw her in NY in the play. Beautiful voice.

    @robertscorpio: Outside of The Evans Family, Carvialti minimized all of the characters you mentioned. Carvialti did establish Fish & Kyle, frontburnered Tea Delgado and feauturd The Patels (who I adored.) FV & RC made a concerted effort to feature diverse day players and supporting characters on OLTL.

    Loved seeing Laura, i ran home from school all those yrs ago to see the wedding, was a huge L&L fan, now not a fan of the lazy,drunk,deadbeat baby killer, but i’m willing to listen as to why Laura has never been by to see Liz and Laura’s grandkids that Liz has, and yes for all intents and purposes Cam has been her grand kid.

    Don’t get me started on the stupidity that is pcpd, so the commish not only is walking around a crime scene picking things up w/o gloves but she lets a civilian under the tape then proceeds to make out w/him at a crime scene involving a dead cop, this is when they get super worked up, not pcpd. and to find out that the murderer might be another cop…..

    and frisco really, Mac has been the only father YOUR children have ever known, he has been there for everything and you want to get up in his face. LOVE Mac.

    and molly really annoyed me today, johnny deserves to be in jail, how about your mom, your dad, your sister’s dad/your uncle, you dead BIL and your sister,and your sister’s brother/your cousin all of these people have done things that they should be in jail for. molly needs a little family history lesson. and really as far as she knows this rafe kid could have killed his dad, i’m sure all of the people i named above said they didn’t do what they did, as far as she knows he was found over his mom’s dead body,someone he was complaining about saying she was looney,with the murder weapon. this is Ric’s kid really,hasn’t her mom been the da a few times.

    and why did johnny give stahhh his half in the HS, isn’t she leaving, now you have 2 girls one that i know has never held a job for long and has no experience doing anything running a nightclub.

    Yea, I forgot about the Patels. When it went off the air, I would argue that out of all the soaps, OLTL had the most diverse cast. I think its a misstatement to say that Cartini doesn’t like black people as someone stated in an earlier post. And I’m saying this as an African American. And as far as the TJ and Molly thing, maybe there is just no chemistry. I actually don’t see any. I like their characters individually but in this little time, I have seen more chemistry between Molly and Rafe.

    I’m not sure people ever heard of the term, my opinion. That’s when someone says something others may not agree with but that person believes it to be true. Therefore, it’s MY OPINION that CarTini doesn’t like or doesn’t feel comfortable writing for Black people. I believe that to be true and I’m sticking to it. There is NO reason to have a third party involved in Molly and TJ’s romance. But CarTini isn’t comfortable with TJ and Molly so they are going to whiting it up.

    Just the other day I cAlled out CARTINI in that they brought back Frisco less to resolve his relationship with Maxie and abandoning her basically for well over 20 years but more to capitalize on the past success of Felicia and Frisco as a super couple for the shows 50th anniversary.

    It’s cartini’s m.o. to skip the good dramatic story for the stupid one. I would have preferred Felicia to crack up in Frisco’s face saying no way at all buddy I’m extremely happy with Mac!! And then told him his first responsibility is to his daughter and not his ego. CARTINI is dropping the ball to tell an old love story that doesn’t deserve being rekindled instead of dealing with a father and daughter story that could lead down the road to a reunion between Felicia n Frisco if Frisco and Maxie was handled well.

    As for the PCPD, Dante has arrested people over a lot less evidence, accused with nothing more than a hunch YET he has a witness seeing him standing over a dying cop, has the dying cop name him outright before dying, has video surveillance and other witnesses that he took rate with the dead cop yet an entire episode b4 the cuffs?!!!

    Anna has been proven to be the dumbest cop on soaps after making out with Luke at a crime scene and for all of the escapes everywhere of all these prisoners under her watch.

    Loved Laura back and liked the catch up abt lucky with lulu.

    I do not like Starr owning 50% of the club with lulu. It doesn’t ring true. Sorry, as a character Starr is still too young on so many fronts to be an owner of a club. For one thing, besides being a teen mom, what job has the character EVER EVER HELD?!!!

    I CAN NOT STAND WRITING TEENS THE WAY THIS TEAM DOES!!! Once again Molly is written like an idiot and she knows better than the police, her mom, the da, that rafe is innocent and has brought the runaway fugitive into her family’s home without any concern for anyone else’s well being?!! This has to be one of the most annoying teen characters I have been forced to watch! And not only that, this virgin 15 year old wrote a best selling romance novel?!! Honestly?!! I just hate the implausible scenarios that is so CARTINI always popping up and NO ONE CALLING IT OUT!!

    Speaking of which… I love Laura but she is lurking around a crime scene of a cop’s murder WHILE THE COMMISH IS MAKING OUT WITH LUKE and not one cop… A cop shooting g would have the full force there… Sees her?!!!

    Love having Laura back! I’m for Felicia with Mac, but it’s totally understandable her pull towards Frisco. Hopefully she fully shuts him down before he leaves town again for another “mission”. Anna breaking up with Luke was awesome. About time! Love that there was no haziness about it.

    It is not a color issue…rather an age discretion. The actor TeQuan is like 20 years old they can not really have him and Molly hook up because that would be illegal. CarTini was smart enough to keep the actor around because he is good at his craft but they needed to bring in a mix because they new the age difference was an issue. This new development will at least have the actors refraining from making out. That little girl portraying Molly is like 15 years old. I am sure there will be another girl added to the fold to even things out. But really dear it is not a color issue.

    LOVED the Laura/Lulu scenes although they were a bit short and I really hated the interruption by Stahhhh. Absolutely HATE that Johnny gave her half of the HS. It is just wrong. And not letting Lulu know? Just wrong. Very glad the Anna/Luke thing is over. Blech. I agree with most, Frisco is being a little….unrealistic with his expectations. Looking forward to more Laura.

    Renee Elise Goldsberry left because she wanted a raise. They never wanted to fire her. Am i wrong but isn’t OLTL the show that casted an Asian Blair Kramer? OLTL has been the only show with a huge diverse cast. GH was the only show that lacked a real diverse cast and still does. GH did have Simone and Tom back in the day but never went back to revisit the couple. They had Lainey, Epiphany, Stan (Epiphany’s son), The Ward’s, and a few other that were never kept on. GH has been a revolving door for African American Actors. Felix will not be staying and we already know this. I love the cast on GH but there s some issue there with diversity. There has always been issues. Carly and Shawn did not work out and neither is Alexis and Shawn. Molly and TJ would but the actor is too old. When Tea came to visit and brought her Latin flavor on the show it was not very welcomed. There has always been a problem bringing different cultures unto GH. Just do the research and you will see that GH predominantly has had Caucasians kept on contract for long term. It may have something to do with the viewers of GH. Perhaps the actors themselves, but all I know is that that show never has black people kept on for long stretches.

    FV and RC are trying to change that tempo but there may be higher ups that do not agree with the direction they are willing to go. I know FV loves bring diversity to a show and if it does not work out on GH trust me it is not because of TPTB but rather the viewers not welcoming diversity to GH. Some of those actors already look kind of racist. I am sorry to be blunt but look at the interaction with some of the black actors. Alexis and Shawn is so awkward. It is like they know these black characters are just there to meet a certain quota.
    I know some of you may not like the truth coming out but really why couldn’t they find a nice black guy to hook Kristina with? They could not of re-casted Maya Ward? The viewers of GH are mostly white folks who are uncomfortable with seeing color on GH. I know a few who come to my office and it turns them off seeing Alexis and Shawn together. The numbers dropped whenever Shawn and TJ are seen together onscreen. Viewers do not care. They love Epiphany because that’s Mammy right there and they love Felix because they see gay rather then color and gay folks will fight for that cutie.

    I have just one thing to say, GH please bring on the romance. You have these two gorgeous guys, Mac and Patrick. Show Mac romancing Felicia so she forgets all about Frisco and give Patrick a real woman, not another psycho doctor like Britt or mousy Sabrina. If they would make Sabrina less like a 16 year old and more of a woman I could may-be accept a romance with her and Patrick. I always loved Luke and Laura, but Tony Geary is so much older looking now then Genie. May-be, and I say may-be, I’ll take a new romance between them but it must be written well and taken slowly because I want to see Laura as a strong woman now.

    AngelWendy15 – Totally agree – I watched DAYS earlier and two couples either had sex or were all over each other…I could not remember the last time someone got a little sookie-sookie on at GH. I would like passion and cute couple thingys…enough of the angst – I got enough of that when Jason was alive…I want a man to just grab a woman and kiss her hard where I swoon.

    Quick question, when Laura left with Scotty a few years back, wasn’t she kind of coerced by Scotty to leave with him, or he’d use the death of his son Logan against Lulu?!? I could have sworn there was something of that nature that occured? yes? no?

    I only ask, because if that call Laura made is to Scotty and we’re about to learn they are getting hitched, wouldn’t that seem out of place?

    First fact check most of the storyline of color was gone or ended when frank and crew took over oltl. Destiny and her family were not written great..Her dad went to jail(no bonding there) even though he had chemistry with the half white rachel(a legacy character). All the christien and his family stuff was way over before they got there….(also the evangeline stuff). They really are great writers but not of diversity..Destiny was loud, rude, and couldn’t keep a secret. AS far as GH viewers…its always been the writers..we all loved edwards black family. The writers esp. GuZa lost interest in writing for Justice. Taggart Justice and DAra were fire and the exit of the actor playing Nicholas ruined Nicholas and taggarts sisters relationship not the fans hatting it because we loved it…

    why is frisco being unrealistic ALMOST EVERYTIME FELICIA LEFT TOWN IT WAS TO BE WITH HIM…This is a well written story..after all these years he should think he could just come back and get her, because she just came back from a stint of being in danger with him(that was the reason she wasn’t there for maxi and Georgie) and every parent thinks their kids will love and forgive them anything on soaps i love this story and i wasn’t there for the original f/f story but mac needed a man to fight for his love and now he has one..

    Cartini if you ever watched OLTL had one of the most ethnically diverse casts on Daytime. To say that they hate Black people is ridiculous and unfair. I never saw Molly being involved with TJ for long, not because he is Black but because he and Molly have very little in common.

    Kristina being pretty or not has nothing to do with where she would do community service. Believe it or not some very attractive women actually do work in prisons.

    It’s a Soap you are suppose to suspend your reality and just have fun watching it. Soaps have always been full of ridiculous stories and misunderstandings that is what makes them fun to watch.

    Re: Felicia & Frisco, perhaps I will get onboard with the pairing once the couple’s flashbacks are aired. Right now, Frisco comes off like a douchebag. Another thought is that if Frisco can be somewhat repaired, he and Felicia would seem like a viable option as a couple. A few flashbacks from F&F’s past would help a lot and I feel are coming.

    Thinking about flashbacks does energize me for the 50th anniversary. The flashbacks chosen for Robin’s “death” were good. The show has major popular couples back (Luke & Laura, Anna & Duke, Felicia & Frisco.) not to mention, Scotty, Lucy and Kevin and Bobbie, so hopefully there will be plenty of flashbacks.

    @KatheHoward….are you serious? Age issue? You do know that Brandon Buddy who played OLTL’s “Cole” to Alderon’s “Starr” was 6 years older than her…meaning when their romance took off on the soap she was 16 and he was 21.

    You do know that the greatest love story ever told on daytime has an age difference of 15 years? Genie was 17 and Tony was 30 when they become daytime’s “it” couple.

    Age has nothing to do with why TJ and Molly were broken up.

    @SavePortChuck: Genie Francis looks better with blonde hair. She was very blonde on Y&R. IMO she looked better on Y&R while her character was awful. Y&R has better production value than GH.

    Loved seeing Laura, and all things around her! Loved the Laura/Lulu scenes and them talking about Lucky. It was also a very nice nod to make Laura be the person who Lucky saw at the graveyard in his last scene. Also, loved that Starr came in and referred to Laura as “The Laura” and a legend. It’s true :)

    Thank YOU Cartini for ending the horrible Luke/Anna pairing (has there ever been a more approriate portmanteau than “AnaL”, lol?). It was ridiculous to begin with. Not all male/female relationships have to turn romantic anyway.

    Although, it was kind of sudden for Anna, wasn’t she just last week saying how she still sees Duke as Faison?

    Loved the Frisco/Felicia scenes! Frisco didn’t annoy me one bit. So glad Felicia is finally in a storyline and we get to see her – to me I felt KW’s emotions were really coming through with her acting in this episode.

    I also loved the scenes between Mac & Lulu, and Lulu shipping him totally as the wonderful guy he is.

    Not sure how I feel about Starr having half of the HS. I thought it was a nice gesture from Johnny, but I just instantly assumed she would sell it to someone. I don’t think I want to see Starr trying to co-run that place, imo that would only lead into trouble. I haven’t thought of a good partner for Lulu though.

    Pretty much FF’d through all the Molly/Rafe/TJ/Shawn/John/Dante stuff.

    I think a Johnny/Kristina pairing was the main reason GH went “sexier” with the recast for Kristina. While very pretty, Lindsay Morgan cannot act. I do not look forward to Johnny/Kristina which is pretty obviously telegraphed.

    I think Johnny should pay for his crimes. He should not be absolved because others have gotten away with crimes. Johnny shot and killed Anthony at point-blank range, actions led to the deaths of Cole & Hope (3 y.o.), he framed Konnie, knowligly had sex with a mentally-fractured Kate who was horrified about the event, he ran a black-market organ trafficking ring! Johnny has been taken to the extreme and no more redeemed than Todd or Sonny. He has a 20-year sentence he will not do a fraction of. I think pairing him with Kristina seems like punishment enough. Lol.

Therefore, it’s MY OPINION that CarTini doesn’t like or doesn’t feel comfortable writing for Black people. I believe that to be true and I’m sticking to it. There is NO reason to have a third party involved in Molly and TJ’s romance. But CarTini isn’t comfortable with TJ and Molly so they are going to whiting it up.[/quote]

    I think people have heard of the term, my opinion. That is why we gave ours on your statement that Cartini hates Black people.

    Loved seeing Laura back. Fix your family girl, and stay away from that wretched Luke!!! I so want Stefan Cassadine to show up now with Nic right behind him. I’m sure we’ll see Laura visit Liz within the next couple days to see her grandkids!

    Loved seeing Anna decide to walk away from a romance with Luke.

    The Lulu/Maxie surrogate story for me falls flat for many reasons, but the biggest one for me is that Maxie may be way too selfish, but she knows the pain of her father (and mother later on in life depending on how one sees it), deserting her. I do not believe for one second that Maxie would give up her own child after all the pain she’s felt from the abandonment of her father.

    Yay for Mac telling Frisco how it was!

    Like others I think we’ll be seeing a Johnny/Kristina pairing soon, but also like others, wouldn’t mind them recasting Kristina.

    Doesn’t Caleb have a bit longer hair and a different style of coat than McBain does?

    [quote=soapbaby]I think a Johnny/Kristina pairing was the main reason GH went “sexier” with the recast for Kristina. While very pretty, Lindsay Morgan cannot act. I do not look forward to Johnny/Kristina which is pretty obviously telegraphed.
    I think Johnny should pay for his crimes. He should not be absolved because others have gotten away with crimes. Johnny shot and killed Anthony at point-blank range, actions led to the deaths of Cole & Hope (3 y.o.), he framed Konnie, knowligly had sex with a mentally-fractured Kate who was horrified about the event, he ran a black-market organ trafficking ring! Johnny has been taken to the extreme and no more redeemed than Todd or Sonny. He has a 20-year sentence he will not do a fraction of. I think pairing him with Kristina seems like punishment enough. Lol.[/quote]

    Dayum are we in trouble if they think she is “sexier” lol

    I know he has to pay but it just hurts because Sonny gets away with everything :(

    but you are dead on about Kristina being punishment enough…too flipping funny

    I totally agree, SavePortChuck! What’s with the mousy brown hair?! I’m a big fan of GF/Laura and, though we owe the new regime for TOTALLY re-charging GH, I want them to handle the Laura character with extreme care. They also lit her poorly yesterday and, please, blonde her back up! I had hoped for a more riveting return to the canvas for her but maybe we just need to bide our time!

    Rebecca Herbst was 5yrs older than Jonathan Jackson, she was 20 and he was 15.

    i’m sorry but johnny isn’t the only one to pay for his crimes,johnny did his knowingly Matt was drunk and pretty much committing self-defence and he’s in jail and we won’t see him. Liz has been publicly shouted at for things that everyone else on the show did but have never been outed or yelled at publically.

    and really maxie you would rather “ruin” sabrina than tell looloo and dante that you had a miscarriage that really wasn’t your fault. i think they would have understood and yes they would have been sad, but they could try again.

    I love Genie Francis’s new hair color. Love it! I recall GF being more of a dark ash blonde in her teens, which I loved. This is very natural looking and flattering to her skin tone.

    Anyway, light buttery (brassy) blondes are kinda out now. They are showing lots of dark blonde/ light ash brown colors, which IMHO are beautiful. Allure magazine refers to it as a “brond” and says that it’s highly coveted among Victoria Secret models, but is not that easy to achieve.

    Some pics of Genie when her hair was a darker blonde. As you can see, she’s beautiful.

    [quote=katehhoward]It is not a color issue…rather an age discretion. The actor TeQuan is like 20 years old they can not really have him and Molly hook up because that would be illegal. CarTini was smart enough to keep the actor around because he is good at his craft but they needed to bring in a mix because they new the age difference was an issue. This new development will at least have the actors refraining from making out. That little girl portraying Molly is like 15 years old. I am sure there will be another girl added to the fold to even things out. But really dear it is not a color issue.[/quote]
    The kid playing Rafe is 18 so he is no more age appropriate to be playing Halley Pullos’ boyfriend as Tequan Richmond by those metrics.
    And what exactly do you expect to happen between the Molly and TJ characters that would make their scenes illegal? It’s a soap not porn.

    [quote=NERescuer]Cartini if you ever watched OLTL had one of the most ethnically diverse casts on Daytime. To say that they hate Black people is ridiculous and unfair. I never saw Molly being involved with TJ for long, not because he is Black but because he and Molly have very little in common.
    [/quote]
    What does she have in common with Rafe that we have been shown other than his having read a copy of Streetcar Named Desire that he found on the street?
    This whole Rafe/Molly thing is being so heavy handed and telegraphed that it makes me not like either character. This storyline desperately needs to add another teenage girl to the mix to alleviate the butchering of TJ’s character and make this saccharinely vomitous budding romance between Molly and Rafe into something I don’t want to fast forward through.

    [quote=nysam]I know the PCPD isn’t played as being that smart, but today’s episode with Anna, Dante and John had me annoyed at how poorly this show is being written. How many months ago was Anna fooled by Faison pretending to be Duke by wearing a fake mask? Was it 2 months? 3 at the most? Why in the world wouldn’t any of these cops stop and think that Faison or a cohort of his is up to the same thing by impersonating John? Why didn’t Anna lunge at John and try to rip his face off? She just had a scene minutes earlier saying her judgment is totally off. Why wouldn’t John offer up that someone is impersonating him as his defense? Anna & Dante would more than likely believe it based on what just happened with Faison/Duke scam.[/quote]
    I was screaming this same stuff at my TV while watching this episode! Aside from the recent fake Duke stuff, it’s not like there hasn’t been a parade of identitical twins strolling into Port Charles for the last umpteen years. To automatically assume that John McBain of all people is a murderer just makes everyone look like bumbling idiots.

    Mac has not exactly been the most civil person either with Frisco’s return – from the very start when he did not want to shake Frisco’s hand, Mac has been very insecure and hostile towards Frisco.

    I have no issue with Mac – I actually liked his character much more when he first arrived in Port Charles. That being said, much like Colton and Felicia, Mac and Felicia could not, can not, hold a candle to Frisco and Felicia. Yes, Frisco has a lot to answer for – but it sure doesn’t look like Felicia doesn’t want Frisco back – she’s just afraid of what might happen if she gets him back.

    Mac should just steer clear of this situation – she’s dumped him how many times? I never understood why he and Alexis didn’t pair up…they still could – I could buy that coupling.

    Just a question-Would a student nurse like Sabrina really have that type of responsibility in the ER? I would have thought an actual nurse, like Elizabeth or Epiphany, would be ER nurses not some barely legal student nurse.

    I will just say that I love Molly … I think she is cute, smart, and realistic. I am apparently in the minority. I think Molly is good with TJ or Rafe.

    As far as the lack of “cultural diversity” why does it have to be a race thing? Some characters connect, others don’t. Think of all the white characters that have come and gone over 50 years without much notice or remembrance.

    I do not like Shawn the character. The character is just boring … but it’s also partly the actor. I’m not sure it would matter what he was saying or doing because he just doesn’t have much presence, in my opinion.

    I love Felix because he is interesting! Where is he by the way? Wasn’t Epiphany supposed to yell at him for not showing up to work one day?

    I feel like this is very touchy territory, so I will tread lightly. But it just seems that as soon as a african-american character appears on canvas, it’s like, “OK, get ready for the interracial romance story” regardless of whether there is a suitable romantic possibility even available. Alexis and Shawn are a good example. Except for the fact that he is beyond HOT, there is little to no reason she would be interested in him.

    Felix is different, in my opinion. A romantic storyline for him isn’t being forced. When it happens, it will seem normal, whether it’s a black guy or a white guy … but it would seem that he would be white since I’m hoping for a return of Lucas Jones!

    I’m not sure I’ve made any kind of point here … and I’ve kind of made arguments for both sides. But those are my thoughts.

    I haven’t seen the ep yet but my opinion on Starr accepting the HS is that it doesn’t make sense, Johnny must feel like he “owes” her something but half interest in a casino in exchange for killing my child? Why would I allow him to assuage his guilt even just a little?

    My other objection is once again RC ignores the fact that Starr should be RICH. She should be in college preparing to takeover Manning Enterprises, her mom’s nightclub or just earning a degree in business so she can finally get that recording career up and running, not operating a nightclub. So far she has been represented by a porn producer and a gangsta, not too bright. KA is 21 so maybe Starr is too, and it’s legally okay for her to run the HS but it makes no sense to me.

    no she wouldn’t and on today’s show patrick said steve was the head of the er. my sister was an er nurse at mayo for 20yrs and ers have their own staff, the floor nurses don’t work in the er, the training is different. patrick wouldn’t have been in the er,he’s a neurosurgeon he wouldn’t be hanging out in the er. they would send the patient up to patrick he’s not a trauma dr. and when they brought the patient in, the emts took him straight to a floor not the er, which isn’t what they do and a student nurse wouldn’t be giving the vitals or all the info.

    I like Genie’s new hair color. If you look at a lot of the actresses in Hollywood now they are getting away from the brass blonde look, and more of low-lites to their blonde shade. Genie is on Katie Couric today. Saw a commercial and she looks fabulous!
