General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Todd tries to explain to Anna and Sam things aren’t what they seem, but Anna decides Todd was trying to steal Danny.  Carly wanders on to the docks, and Todd swears he was saving the baby from John. He would never let anything bad happen to Danny again.  Anna informs him John has been in police custody, and promptly arrests Todd. 
 


Alexis is shocked to see Rafe, and accuses Molly of harboring an accused murderer in her room.  Rafe vows he wouldn’t hurt Danny, and admits Heather took him. Molly begs her mother not to call the police, and help Rafe.  Before Alexis can answer, she receives a call from Sam giving her the good news about Danny.
 
Molly thinks her mother should represent Rafe, since she has no problem being Sonny's attorney.  Alexis points out she’s already representing John, so she has a conflict of interest. She does agree to take Rafe down to the station.  TJ arrives, as they are leaving. 
 
Sonny wants Shawn to look into the Zacchara organization, now that Johnny is in jail for a while. Shawn thinks Johnny’s assets may be in Connie’s name, but Sonny believes otherwise. 
 
John tells Dante he's isn't the one who is killing people, because Caleb Morley is real. Dante doesn’t know what to believe.  John feels Rafe is the key to the mystery.  John reminds Dante he helped him during the Ronnie situation. John wants to be let go.   
 
Kristina runs into Johnny at Pentonville, and explains Connie recanted on the stand, thus allowing Kris to get community service instead of jail time.  Johnny doesn’t understand why Connie would lie to help someone else.  Kris thinks it was for Sonny, but Johnny feels Connie hates Sonny since he wants Kate.    Johnny tells her about giving Starr the club. 
 
Diane meets with Connie and informs her that she may be able to get the court to dismiss the manslaughter charges, but wants to pin the accident on Kate.  Connie isn’t interested, since she would end up in Shadybrook again. Diane asks about paying her legal bills, and Connie promises to check Johnny’s accounts. 
 
Sonny thanks Connie again for helping Kristina.  Connie tells him about Diane wanting to blame Kate for the accident.  Sonny remembers last year’s Valentine’s day, and is sure Connie was around back then.  She admits she was, and hated what Kate was doing with her life.  She’s surprised at the difference a year makes.  She reminisces about cookies in high school, and Sonny comments that was a long time ago.  
 
Carly doesn’t understand why Todd would go near Danny again, or blame John.  Sam explains there is someone who looks like John committing all these crimes, which makes Todd’s story believable.  Carly would like to believe Todd. 
 
Anna brings Todd into the station, and he accuses John of killing Heather and trying to take the baby.  John points out he was at the station the entire time, and there is someone out there who looks like him.  Anna asks what happened to the man, and Todd says he just sort of vanished.  John’s worried about Caleb going after Sam and the baby.  
 
TJ is angry Molly was hiding Rafe in her bedroom.  Molly says Rafe was in trouble, but TJ accuses her of lying to him. He feels he can’t trust her. TJ can't believe she broke the law, and storms off. 
 
Alexis brings Rafe to the station, and tells Diane she has a client for her.  Diane informs Alexis her plate is full, but changes her turn when Alexis mentions Rafe is from the Barrington family. She believes there’s likely a trust fund somewhere.  Diane takes on the case, and warns the officer to treat Rafe properly.  
 
Carly visits Todd at the police station, and tells him she believes him. He asks her to spend her night there with him, but Carly leaves.  
 
Caleb appears to Sam and the baby.  He pretends he’s John, and wants to look at the baby.  Sam doesn't fall for his trick, and calls him Caleb. Caleb says they’ve known each other for centuries, and always circle back to each other.

Funny Todd moment of the day: Anna pulls out her cell phone to read him his rights:
Todd: You'd think you'd know that by heart by now
Anna: I know, right.

Loved pretty much everything except how lame it was to have Carly stumble across Todd and the gang at that moment.

I thought Anna said "You too" to Todd.. It was the great line of today for sure..

Loved Carly and Sam!! Loved Danny playing with Sam's hair when she was talking.. I of course loved that Sam didn't fall for Caleb being John..

I hope my Johnny is out of jail soon. Wondering if we are going to be treated to lots of bonding with him and Krissy.. Not sure how I feel about that.

Why does everyone in Port Charles seem to take leisurely strolls down by the docks? Carly just appearing there was odd.

I am curious about why no one thought it would be a good idea to maybe dust the stroller for prints since it would show that Heather, Todd and John (since Caleb's fingerprints are identical) had laid hands on it which would have been the evidence needed to prove that Todd wasn't lying.
And the way the entire PCPD leaves Sam and Daniel alone on the docks was bizarre since Anna still believes Heather is at large and she did just kidnap Daniel. But I guess they wanted to have a convenient way for Caleb and Sam to have their first meeting.

Molly and Rafe continue to be the two most annoying characters on the show. Those scenes where Molly was screeching at Alexis to not call the police and Rafe's overly sickening goody two shoes routine were enough to make me pluck out my eyes. I think I would rather see a week of Connie and Kristina arguing than see one more second of these two wretched children.

Another WTF scenario was how they just let Kristina fraternize openly with the inmate population, i.e. a social hour with Johnny! LOLOL yeeaaahhh I'm sure that's how it rolls in most prisons! No supervision...Truly funny!

Jimmy Deshler (Rafe) is a fantastic find. Just an awesome young actor.

Great episode! I really enjoyed it ... despite the fact I am still beyond annoyed to go another day and not see Laura, Frisco, Felicia, Maxie ... but I'm sure it will all work out. I'll keep watching.

I agree with J. Bernard about Jimmy Deshler ... I am enjoying every scene that boy is in.

Finally a mention of Amanda Barrington! If there had been one earlier, I missed it. I am glad it finally came out this this lost boy comes from a lot of money! Maybe he can move in with the Q's! Monica can adopt him ... or not. I just want to see Monica.

And I love Molly ... I was proud of her for standing up to Alexis and bringing up all the times she has defended known criminals like "Uncle Sonny" (gross -- what an awful person to call "uncle").

TJ was great today ... for the first time I really felt him. It was sad when Molly opened her present and saw all the sweet things he gave her and how thoughtful it was.

Why must we have scenes with Shawn and Sonny?

Connie has grown on me, I have to admit it. Kelly Sullivan is really good, in my opinion.

Just when I thought Kristina was fading into the background, she is taking up a major portion of the episode. Does not look like she's going anywhere soon. I did like it when the guard made a point that it was ridiculous that Kristina was left in that room with Johnny! I've noticed that the writers have added little comments like that recently to point out things that look ridiculous to us, the viewers. A little nod that they know we're not stupid.

The last scene with Sam, Danny, and Caleb was really suspenseful. It's like you could tell as Sam quickly realized it wasn't John and she was in major danger.

The PCPD might want to consider shutting down Pier 52 ... and directing the significant foot traffic another direction. Smile

Loving this show!

As the Hot Boyz would say, "This show is on fiiiiiiiiyyyyyyahhhhhhhh, Hot.... Hot"
Great acting all around lol. I love Anna smacking her lips saying "You too."
I can not wait to see how this wraps up and to have all those people in lock up will be funny.

The place is called "Port Charles". I'm sure in Port Cities it is common that people walk on the docks all the time lol.

Today's episode was really good! I can't believe I'm saying this, but KeSu is growing on me, too. What's more--and I can't believe I'm saying THIS, either--but I loved the interchange between Sonny and Dante, and I hope they pick up where they left off and we get to find out more about why Sonny is so wistful.

Everyone looked great today, too. KeMo and LW looked beautiful and the lighting for them on the docks was lovely.

I adore Molly and I think it's great that GH gave her a little triangle.

The Deshler person is a good actor but my Lord is he tiny! No more than 5'5" I'd guess. And he's 18, so I doubt he's going to shoot up. In any case, good thick hair so he's got that going for him.

I hope we get to see Heather pulling herself out of the water. I think Robin Mattson would be hilarious!

It was a bit odd that Carly suddenly appears on the dock but I guess they have to use less sets to keep costs under control which Frank V was always good at on OLTL. I think they wanted Carly there so she could see that Todd actually wanted to save Baby Danny and eventually I think they will hook up again as a couple because both actors seem to want it. I still can't figure out this whole Caleb thing . Is he a vampire, a psycho killer,and why is he going after everyone that was associated to Caleb, like Livvie. And how is he associated to John?
I hope that we are still seeing Johnny that he will be staying on the show. I like Brandon B as an actor. The actor playing Rafe has a lot of potential. I laughed at the always funny Dianne when Alexis said she had a client for her how fast she came running back. Somehow I doubt Heather is dead. She's a favorite of Ron C.'s.

Just watched Friday's episode. Can't believe they have let the ball drop so far in terms of scheduling. The pre-emptions were weeks ago, and we are still two episodes behind? That seems inplausible to me. So now Valentine's Day will be on Monday. Also, Laura's cliffhanger scenes would have been on a Thursday and Friday, as they should have.

Is it just me or has Lindsey Morgans acting improved? She seemed much more natural and relaxed today in her scenes with Johnny. Maybe Brandon Barash is one of those people who make you feel so comfortable in the scenes that it's easier.

Sorry but I don't feel any sympathy for TJ. Never was really invested in that pairing. I'm glad Molly is having her own storyline. Rafe is still uber-cute!

Danny was so adorable today, as usual. Loved him playing with Sam's hair and buttons Smile

McBain, you are a police officer yourself, and you're encouraging Dante to just let you walk and "look the other way"? Really? Hello, future crooked cop.

Loved the pier scenes with Carly, Sam, Anna & Todd. Bringing Carly on was a nice spice. And it was nice to see a little scene between Sam & Carly, GH's former leading ladies. They don't have many scenes together these days, so it was nice. And of course, both looked great. Loved the shot of their legs with the camera rising up, in the middle of the show.

Todd is just so pathetic. Every excuse he gives is just so empty.

I didn't get the Anna reading the rights from a notebook. Todd was right, shouldn't she know them by heart, being the commissioner and all? I don't think I've ever seen a policeman read rights from a notebook. It made her look incompetent.

Sonny and "Yawnnie" were total FF material for me today. It feels so forced, and it doesn't help to know how much MB loves that pairing. She had a nice dress on though. Oh, and please, make it clear already: Who is the alter and who is the real deal. Thank you.

WTH was the preview with her, Olivia and Steve? Is she going to get enmeshed in that storyline too?

Carolyn Hennesy was 100% on point as always. Loved Alexis shipping Rafe off to Diane, haha.

So glad to finally see Laura again on Monday!!! And - can you believe it - Laura/Liz scenes! In her HOUSE!!!! Eeek! Smile

Actually, the quote was:

Anna: "You too."

I agree, it was a good show. And the cliffhanger was good too. Can't wait until Monday Smile

At 1st I didn't know what to think of the kid playing Rafe.. I have to say he has grown on me. did anyone else find it interesting that Alexis mentioned Trust Funds. I bet we find out Rafe is going become really rich really fast.

I too, liked the line between Anna and Todd about the rights.

Isn't it funny how Dante will let Sonny and Connie get away with everything under the sun, yet McBain, who he's worked with for a while and has helped him in the past with Lulu, he won't give an inch for? I'm waiting for Scotty Baldwin to come back to town and get in his face about his wife's involvement in the death of his son Logan. Hum... I wonder if she has mentioned that to him yet, I seem to remember her shrieking at him over and over again all about honesty when the Balkan thing was going on and he hadn't told her right away about the coverup with Brenda's baby daddy. I guess we shall see if it happens!

I liked that Sam figured out really fast that it wasn't McBain she was talking to. I also liked the fact that Carly was civil to Sam and didn't try to get in her face about how wonderful Todd is.

Sonny and Connie bore me to death, but I was wondering if he was going to pick up on the fact that she was sharing those memories of them as teenagers with him today, and not Kate. Doesn't that mean that she is the orginial and not Kate?

Of course Rafe is rich. His grandmother is Amanda Barrington. The Barringtons are one of the richest families in PC. She was on the board at the hospital for ages.

Why does everyone find it so odd that Carly was at the docks? She had just left the Haunted Star, which is a floating night club.

Sonny is her biological uncle. LOL

Is Todd the guy in the pic? I wish he'd cut his hair. Seems kinda handsome under all that.

^^ Yes he is, pferrando Smile He does look nice. But for me, his character tends to be so comedic, even cartoonish at times that it's hard to take him seriously. Especially as a romantic lead.

Btw, this is a good time to start watching GH... Wink

The PCPD ran prints on the weapon Caleb used to kill Allison and there were three matches: Allison, Rafe and John. So Caleb and John having matching fingerprints.

RoHo never wanted Todd a gang rapist to become a romantic lead. Maybe the actor has changed his mind along the way?

Not necessarily. 2013Connie could be an alter of original recipe Connie along with Kate and anybody else who's in there.

Thanks for the info...I knew there was something about Johns fingerprints being on the murder weapon but I wasn't recalling the inconclusive part.
Which fits the twin thing since twins may not have identical fingerprints but they can be very close with just subtle differences.

GH was great all week and Friday's episode did not disappoint!!!

Caleb had a twin brother Michael who was not a vampire, so it is possible that John is somehow related to that family tree via either his mother or his father's family.

Loved seeing Sam and Danny together and all the little charming unscripted gestures Danny was making towards Sam!!

Everyone is dressing much better these days, the women and the men!

I'm so happy that Laura is back!!! Party
