General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Sabrina accidentally bumps into Steve and spills water all over him.  Steve remembers Olivia’s vision of his shower with Sabrina, and wonders if her other vision of his untimely death will come true as well.  As he's thinking, Liz pays him a visit. Liz reassures him the visions are open to interpretation. She doesn’t think the vision necessarily means Steven will be stabbed.  
 


On the anniversary of Cole and Hope’s death, Starr brings flowers to the side of the road. Michael joins her, and the two discuss the crazy year they’ve had together. They make a wish on a falling star and leave together.  Unbeknownst to them, someone has been watching their every move. 

On the anniversary of Robin’s death, Patrick attends a Narcotics Anonymous meeting. He admits times have been hard, but he has friends who support him.  Later on, he heads to the chapel and runs into Sabrina.  Sabrina explains that her mother, who died when she was a child, was a nurse and her hero.    Sabrina tells Patrick her father sent her to live with her cousins after her mother's death. She misses her mother, who always told her she could become anything if she followed her heart.  Patrick advises Sabrina to have faith in herself.  They both light a candle for Sabrina’s mother and Robin.  
 
Kate demands to know how Trey died, so Olivia and Sonny fill her in.  Kate is angry to learn Olivia and Sonny just let Connie take Trey off life support. Kate feels they should have waited until she came back, but Sonny says Trey’s organs saved others. He died a hero.  Kate reminds them Connie is just a symptom, not the real person. She’s also angry at how quickly she thinks Sonny jumped in Connie’s bed.  Sonny tries to explain, but Kate declares she’s finished with him.  
 
John decides to track Caleb to Windermere. Lucy wants to join him, since she’s a slayer, and Rafe wants retribution for his mother.  The three arm themselves with weapons from the professor’s office. 
 
Sam wakes up and begs Caleb to let her and Danny go.  She claims she isn’t Livvie, but Caleb doesn't listen. He needs her to remember she's Livvie Locke. Sam realizes Caleb has bitten her neck and drugged her. Caleb promises no harm will come to Danny, and he’ll accept her son if she accepts his.  Caleb informs Sam it takes three bites for her to remember, and shows her his fangs.  
 
Anna and her detective show up at the professor’s office, and discover the article on Steven Clay.  Anna realizes Caleb actually exists, but doesn’t understand why he looks like John.  She sees the weapons are missing, and knows the vampire slayer trio is armed.  
 
Lucy yells at Caleb to come out, which infuriates John because she’s given Caleb a chance to take off. Lucy feels Caleb’s presence, and knows he’s still there. However, when they burst into the room, Caleb and Sam are nowhere to be found. Luckily, Danny is still there.  The threesome wonders where Caleb would have taken Sam. Caleb and Sam are seen hiding in the tunnels.  
 
At the same time, Heather menacingly shows up at Olivia’s.

    I’ve got to say, I was not feeling this episode at all. The only bright spot was when ME, flamboyantly drapped himself on the couch as Caleb, otherwise meh.

    It’s the anniversary of MY Robin’s “death” and I have a brief scene of Patrick in a meeting, but nothing between him and Liz, Robin’s best friend, or Anna, Robin’s mother. In fact the Anna part of the story seemed like a different day, like one part in one part of town it’s still the day after Valentine’s, whereas it’s a different day elsewhere.

    Having Starr and Michael reminisce about their brief love affair in great detail including a ton of flashbacks was also annoying. Why no flashbacks of Robin?

    Then we’ve got Kate crying over Trey, who was in town for five minutes while Olivia and Sonny spend twenty minutes skirting around the truth.

    And on top of all that, I’m still pissed that Liz will once again lose a member of her family, for no good reason.

    GUH!!

    The guy lurking in the shadows??? The only way this story with Starr and Michael work is to bring back Cole but the original Cole. And yes I mean Brandon Buddy!. A real good actor and someone who can bring it to this triangle.

    I am intrigued about Sabrina’s story. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if she was related to Roy DiLucca. That would be amazing. The story about her dad may be a sign that Sabrina is not who we think she is…. I found it odd they would bring up that little tid bit about the father not being able to take care of her and shipped her off. Could Sabrina be the lost Quartermaine heir?

    Connie/Cate can go seat on a tack. Sonny can follow suite.

    This is the single worst episode I’ve seen since Cartini joined the show. I tried to watch every scene, but ended up ffing through all of the Konnie, Bovina/Michael and Patrick/Childish ShowEater with Bad Hair scenes after the first 15-30 seconds. The vampire stuff was fun, but not enough to make up for all of the other terribleness. Truly awful.

    @Perkie: They would have had to pay KMc if she’d been heavily featured in flashbacks. Money well-spent, I say, but the duo in charge are pinching pennies to kick off something big for the anniversary, I’d guess.

    I agree with Perkie about not feeling this episode … it felt like a lot of wasted space.

    First off, why do we need to see a re-hash of Michael and Starr? Have we really forgotten (in less than a year’s time) how this perfect little couple came to be? I’m being a “little” sarcastic here — I don’t hate Michael-Starr, in fact, I usually like them, but all the flashbacks seemed like a strange use of valuable, limited time on a show that has way too many storylines going on.

    And speaking of unnecessary storylines, Kate, Sonny, Olivia … need I say more? This part of today’s episode just stuck out like a sore thumb. A whole episode was spent telling Kate things that we already know. Nothing shocking or terribly interesting developed. I am praying Connie comes back soon and takes care of Kate for good.

    I loved the Patrick scene at the NA meeting. I think it would have been interesting if Patrick had made a love connection at his meetings months ago. Somebody who was also struggling with addiction … maybe not doing as well as Patrick did. Would have been better than the triangle with Sabrina and the Britch.

    But I will say that Sabrina was more interesting today. The scene in the chapel was good. And it looks like Sabrina may have a history that will make her a little more compelling. When she first started talking about her mother being the perfect nurse, I thought maybe it was Barbara Jean Spencer!!! But no, her mother is dead, and thank god, Bobbie is alive and coming back soon!

    Loved Lucy, McBain, and Rafe … and poor little Danny, and the marks on Sam’s neck! Haha! More scissors I’m sure!

    I love this show … just seems like there is way too much going on.

    Perkie, I feel your pain. I am getting tired of Liz’s family and friends constantly being killed off of this freaking show. Grrrrr.

    Hmmmm. I bet Annie Logan turns out to be Sabrina’s mother. I really like Ellie, it’s a shame she’s being wasted on Spixe nonsense.

    Connie/Kate can take a huge leap off of a building. Sonny has not thrown any bar ware in a very long time.

    Lawd. I just realized that Starr is on her third boyfriend since she and Cole did the nasty nasty which created Hope about five years ago. Cole was probably the one lurking in the bushes and will show up to usher Starr off canvas with an alive Hope and Johnny will soon be off the hook for only killing his grandfather/father.

    Brief observations of each character today:

    Michael and Starr: BOOOOOORINNNNNNNNNNNNGGGG! lol

    Sabrina and Patrick: very sweet scene revolving around loss of loved ones and having faith in oneself love Sabrinas character.

    Kate/Connie/Bubba/Gump/Olivia/Sonny : LMAO hilarity ensues when someone who has ALREADY been told about her son has to pretend like she doesnt know alter or not come on you would think inside of Connie SAME DAMN PERSON AS USUAL that KATE would have come out immediately when Trey got hurt and was dying.

    Incredibly stupid storyline but at least Sonny fucked the Kate out of Connie still laughing at that one lmao

    Stephen/Elizabeth: Cute scene between brother and sister unfortunately with foreboding doom surrounding the scene of his upcoming departure from the show.

    Lucy/John/Rae/Livvie/Sam/Caleb: One of my favorite parts of the show now funny parts between John and Lucy and some intense scenes involving Caleb and Sam/Livvie.

    The girl was bitten by Caleb also he also has vampire teeth so this stuff about him being a mental patient IS just a way to throw the audience off and make them forget the real history of Caleb when he WAS A VAMPIRE.

    Think of how illogical that would be to create a storyline around someone who was a vampire in a city called Port Charles which is STILL called Port Charles and there was also a GENERAL HOSPITAL on the show Port Charles.

    It would make no sense whatsoever to revise and rewrite the entire storyline of Livvie and Caleb period.

    If you look closely regarding this storyline you can tell Carlivati is trying to throw the audience off over and over again one minute hes a vampire the next a mental patient theres a twist coming up rest assured .

    The end with Olivia and the SPOILER ALERT the very much ALIVE HEATHER was a fantastic way to end the show.

    It looks like from the preview also that Heather will be the inadvertent cause of Stephens death.

    Did you notice that in that scene when Caleb killed the professor the scissors were on the floor?

    Now why would Caleb of all people leave that there intentionally?

    I believe its to continue to throw the audience off further it would be way too easy for him to just leave that there for someone to find.

    But then again knowing how crafty and cunning Caleb is he probably did that on purpose to make people THINK the professor was killed by those scissors.

    Scissors also would not make marks like the ones on the professors neck they would be much more deep then the marks that they saw on his neck.

    Way too convenient .

    I love that Heather is used in the tease/cliffhanger for tomorrow’s episode! Proof positive that she has been and remains a key player in bringing this show back from the brink.

    Still wish we would have seen Heather claw her way out of the water. That would have been great. She probably feels she now has a score to settle with Caleb … hope she goes for it!

    So the episode begins with Patrick talking about the loss of his wife and his recovery….and he ends up being a should for Sabrina. And that is all that we get? Can we have the family all meet at the chapel and say a prayer if they don’t want to pay for flashbacks? That sequence just lost me.

    Then you have Starr and Michael. Starr is trying to honor her dead child and boyfriend, by reflecting on how their deaths brought her to Michael? Really? It’s one think that they had flashbacks, but the flashbacks weren’t to honor the dead, but to recall how they got together. Talk about morbid.

    Meanwhile, the actress that plays Con/Kate (can’t think of her name), gets to play the same scene as a different person. She reflects on the loss of her son first as Connie…then as Kate. Felt like groundhog day.

    Too many other possibilities to dismiss the Mental patient angle as a plot feint.
    – Seeing the fangs on Caleb is just the viewing being given the perspective of the hypnotized Sam. (most likely)

    This episode really showcased all the things that are wrong on GH right now. I could have FF’d through the entire episode and not miss anything interesting.

    I’ll just start out positively by saying (who’d a thunk it) – it was Olivia/Steve I was interested in today the most! I have never been interested in their relationship thusfar, but I’m actually now glad they are showcasing them as much as possible, before Steve goes. I actually hope Steve and Olivia get married before he dies, maybe on his deathbed. I’m also glad about the Liz/Steve scenes. AND I love Heather! She looks great, and opposed to some opinions, in my opinion she can come back time after time, she’s just so great.

    But then the rest… Sabrina, really? She hijacked Robin’s day. And her hairdo was ridiculous again. The only ray of hope MIGHT have been her finally discussing her parents and maybe a revelation that they are someone we know from the past. But, frankly, I’m not holding my breath. I cannot fathom why none of these newbies have been tied to a legacy family by now? That would make these people at least SOMEWHAT tolerable.

    Starr? Umm – memo to TPTB – All of those flashbacks happened within in the last YEAR. I think we all remember them. Plus, MiStarr is not some epic love story. Stop trying to portray it as it is. And yes, why all the Starr fbs but none of Robin?! Lunacy. I can’t believe Robin and Cole & Hope died on the same day? What? I thought there was at least a week in between. Luckily, it provides me comfrot to know Starr is leaving soon.

    And then of course there was Kate. Did we really have to RE-live the whole death of Trey through Kate?! It ate up enough screen-time on the FIRST time (no offense, but to the death of such a newbie, complete with magical spirits transforming into heaven, shouldn’t have been used so much time on). It was TOTALLY unnecessary. Not to mention the character of Kate. How does one even see which one is in control, Kate or Connie? If the show hadn’t told me which one it is, I wouldn’t have known.

    And sorry, but I’m still not interested in the Caleb thing, and I am VERY glad the storyline will soon be over, I hope. I am glad he is not a real vampire, but at the same time I totally understand if PC fans feel they were betrayed and the memory of that show tarnished.

    I did like Lucy being all tough and assembling the weapons, and kicking the door open at Wyndemere. And Danny was oh so cute as always. That’s about it.

    Again, an hour of my life was saved by not watching an episode of GH… and that’s a good and a bad thing.

    With all this hype about GH getting better and better from everyone on this blog and by critics in articles, it’s funny that all that I think is wrong with the show is right here in one episode!

    First off, I am not sure which of you wrote that Sonny “effed” Kate out of Connie BUT THAT IS ONE HILARIOUS WAY TO PUT IT!!! LOL My problem with this storyline has been MANY and not few. From the start I have always said that Connie is the real personality and Kate the ALTER. From the very beginning of this character showing up in GH (can’t even say PORT CHARLES because of the silly vampire crap-story anymore) while played superbly by Megan Ward it was slowly revealed that “KATE” was the made up personna Connie came up with to get away from all that was bad with Bensonhurst. So now Kate comes out after we were tortured with the real Connie… surprised that no one in Bensonhurst ‘knock her off’ before now… AND NO ONE CALLS A DOCTOR?!!! People this ain’t healthy.

    Back to my point… So Sonny “eff’s” Kate out of Connie (hmmm, either he is that good or Connie is truly repulsed by him that she said to Kate, you take this one cause his breathe tastes like GARRRLIC) but not the death of her son that we had to relive AGAIN this afternoon AND through more than half the episode of Olivia and Sonny hedging around the bush about it?!! This is why I can’t stand this writing regime because they make dumb choses on when things should occur and when they don’t.

    WHEN is Starr going?? Come on people, the figure lurking in the bushes around Starr and Michael is Todd! He will kidnap Starr… since the actors have to leave the canvas… because he doesn’t want to be on the run alone. BELIEVE ME that will be the case. There won’t be a Cole in the bushes scene because if it was Cole he would have gone into town for Starr and not hung out at the bush on a cliff in the middle of halfway to NO WHERE in the dead of winter hoping that Starr would show up. ONLY TODD WOULD DO SOMETHING THAT STUPID.

    Sabrina will turn out to be a Quartermaine and the product of the delusional and killer FRANCO. Of course, once we find that out we will be given weeks of Sabrina with lines like “OMG, I have a super crush on Patrick that I can’t reveal because not only am I a nursing student with a whiny spineless body and why would he want me BUT now I am a Quartermaine and the spawn of a serial killer HIGH END artist!!!” to which she will whine “does that make me a killer, too? Hmmm, and an artist?!!” TO which she will steal Emma’s crayolas and start drawing a 5 yr old kids depiction of what a crazy family is! YIPPEE. Can’t wait to see this loosely held together nurse crumble under the manipulations of both the swarmy AJ and the screeching Tracey.

    Ah, then the vampires. Either John believes Caleb is a vampire OR HE IS ONE OF THE DUMBEST AND MOST IRRESPONSIBLE ADULTS ON THE FACE OF PORT CHARLES! HE ALLOWED RAFE, A 15YR OLD BOY, GO ALONG WITH HIM AND THE ‘UP TO THIS POINT’ CRAZY LUCY TO FIND AND KILL EITHER (a) A THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD VAMPIRE or (b) A SERIAL KILLER WHO HAS GONE UNDETECTED FOR WELL OVER 20 YEARS?!!

    If you answered “BOTH” than you have won the grand prize of watching this storyline play out on your soap for weeks to come. NOT ONLY Have you won this prize, but we will throw in Anna Devane, international spy turned upstate NY police chief, as she and her merry band of misfits chase after the unemployed Llanview cop, the Cosmetics tycoon and the teenage boy with no jacket as they hunt down a Serial Killing thousand year old vampire and a his hostage, a twitching whiny ex-girlfriend of a mob killer!

    YIPPEEEEEEEE, forget DISNEYLAND, I’m going to Port Charles!

    Oh forgot about Steve. Is he still alive?!!! It will be great if and when Heather kills her son that we see less of the comedic Heather and more of the dramatic from her and the great Robin Mattsen.

    Wow so much going on in my brain right now I almost wish I had a Connie hiding inside so I can just unleash it.

    First for the show:

    I did FF through most because I did not like the tone of having young love found on a cliff being rammed down my throat and I like these two.

    These two bozos (Liv/Sonny) should not be going into details on a woman that fragile.

    I agree with Perkie by the end of the show all that I took away was that Liz was once again losing someone she loved..but it beyond irks me that Steve is a legacy and yet I have to be subjected to the Sabrina hour over and over. Cartini this is not the way to get me to like this girl, I mean even Steve’s death had to have Sabrina in it.\

    I do agree that the telling of her fanily history is foreshadowing that she is in fact Franco’s daughter.

    Simply loved everything Caleb/John – and one cannot forget the adorable Danny who when Caleb was holding him was all snuggled into him.

    The faces that John gave Lucy made me smile.

    I have to agree with everyone’s opinions so far. This episode was pretty bad, and it is saying what is wrong with GH right now. When Cartini first took over I had such high hopes, and the show was so much better, getting away from all that Mob crap. But, now, we are being over-loaded with all these pyscho characters and killers. Enough already! I love Todd because he’s funny and I like Heather, but now the character is becoming too much. Then we have Britt, Kate/Connie (they need to end this DID storyline), and the Caleb/Stephan Clay storyline that is becoming confusing each day. Yesterday they showed him with fangs, so is he really Caleb the vampire? The best part is watching Micheal Easton, who I always liked, playing the two roles. Love how they emphasize his blue eyes as Caleb with the make-up and lighting. I still can’t figure out the connection between him and John McBain. I know they probably had to rush this story line to explain Micheal Easton having to leave the show. I also think that is why we got that marathon of Starr and Micheal’s romance, because something will have to happen for her to leave the show, also Todd, who may be the stalker. But, I am getting tired of the pysho story lines (Olivia with her visions). The show is becoming a bit over the top. They NEED to get back to the drama and romance, to balance the show. I love Todd, he’s crazy, but he is so funny. But they have to balance out the rest of the show with better stories. Look at Y &R, their ratings keep going up because they deal with real-life stories. I am starting to get worried that once GH celebrates it’s 50th, if ratings don’t go up, the show is going to be in trouble.
    And stop with making everything Sabrina. This character is just not catching on, yet she’s involved in all these story lines. No wonder JMB (Lulu) wants to leave the show. She hasn’t had a great story in awhile. I wonder about Tony Geary also. He hasn’t had one Emmy type show since Guza left. Have a feeling he’ll be the next to go. Cartini needs to balance the show better. Some shows are so off, they seem to be thrown together. I love Lucy, but enough with her screaming about Caleb the vampire. I want to see her and Kevin, and OMG -PLEASE bring some romance on this show, before it’s too late.

    LOL Im the one who said that about Sonny fing the Kate out of Connie.

    Great points also I might add.

    I agree Kate THE REAL ALTER (lol) should have immediately come out when Trey got hurt and was dying the writers were morons especially with that storyline.

    LOL I can just see Todd now doesnt she realize my selfish need is more important then her love life?!

    LMFAO @ the Sabrina part I love the character but thats too damn funny nonetheless I can just see her being carted away in a rubber jacket yelling Patrick fuck me fuck me! lol

    Umm, i think Yoryla about summed up everything that sucked about yesterday’s GH! Although i wanna add Steve being a (much-deserved) d*ck to Sabrina was about THE most interesting the character’s ever been…too bad a bad actor has to cause said character to be killed off!

    I just CAN.NOT take another minute of Stahh, i just can’t. And spacing out Jack Wagner’s episodes has totally sidelined the characters of Maxie,Spinelli and Ellie. And WTH is AJ? He’s on 1/off 4, don’t get it.

    I’ve never thought Kate was the alter, and I hope they don’t go that way. From what I understand about real cases of DID,the alter(or alters) emerges as a defense mechanism to cope with trauma. Given that role, the alter is kind of on stand by to jump in when needed, and is aware of everything the main personality does. So it would be Connie who has all the memories and Kate has the blackouts and chunks of time lost, which is how it’s played out so far.

    I guess there’s validity to the argument that the shock of learning that Trey died should have caused Connie to reemerge, but I think Connie is at peace with Sonny and the loss of Trey, so she doesn’t feel the need to do so at this time.

    That being said, I think we probably haven’t seen the last of Connie. I think she’ll pop up if Kate really goes on trial, if they go deeper with the roots of Kate’s DID, or Connie reemerges to fight for Sonny (which would be really dumb but wouldn’t surprise me).

    Maybe it was the wine, but I thought the ep was worth watching. Always love someone lurking in the bushes. Hope it’s Cole and not Todd.

    Even though the story line is getting tired, Kelly Sullivan can certainly bring it! I hope they figure out something interesting for her to do next (not a fashion mag or cosmetics line or any other sort of high powered gig… that would be a snooze.)

    Interesting possibilities regarding Sabrina and her backstory.

    Do they really have to pay an actor for flashback scenes? Wouldn’t ABC own all previously run material? It is strange there were no Robin flashbacks.

    The vampire story continues to be wacky yet engaging. Love Lynn Herring’s Lucy Coe!

    Speaking of love, I so hope someone above was right and that Heather only inadvertently causes Steven Lars’ death. Robin Mattson is one of the characters that truly weaves gold into the fabric of this show!

    Wish there wasn’t so much hate for this show right now. Yes, I understand that there are stories and characters that not everyone is going to love or even like for the matter, but the show has been entertaining nonetheless. And if you don’t think so, there’s always The Talk or Let’s Make a Deal on the other channel. Or even go back and watch clips on youtube of your favorite classic storylines.

    Carlivati’s version of GH may not be amazing, brilliant, or will win the Pulitzer prize anytime soon, but it’s a soap opera. Shows like this are allowed to cross boundries and get creative however they feel necessary. It’s fiction and I for one would like to praise the show for their creativity as opposed to the last regime which hated women only making them victims and only wanted to write about mob stories.

    I am thankful for this show. I can agree that technical things like Starr and Michael’s flashbacks being SO annoying and that the screentime could have gone to something else more useful or dialogue that repeats itself every single scene needs to go or be improved, but I am loving the show. For the first time in awhile, I look forward to going home and watching my show from the day. So I will continue to watch the show, vampires, serial killers, crazy people, psychos who were different faces, witches, diamonds that control people and all. Rock on Cartini! Let your creative side flourish! Let’s just get better dialogue in there and no repeat yourselves so much.

    To DonnyA2001: It’s not so much nit-picking with the show, it’s more the fact that for the majority of Feb (sweeps month above all else!) the show has overall S-U-C-K-E-D, or at the very least been lackluster. So many characters have disappeared from our screen, while Starr and Sabrina (who i used to like but am slowly starting to resent) eat up BIG chunks of screen time. The following characters are pretty much down to ONE DAY A WEEK — AJ, Duke, Dante, Lulu, Maxie (due to spacing out JW’s run), Spinelli, Ellie, Tracy. As a result of that — or maybe b/c of the OLTL exits — we’re stuck with Molly, Caleb/Stephen Clay, newbie Rafe, the overexposed DID story, and last AND least, Starr. I’m a bit concerned about who’s getting screen time and who’s not….I can totally co-sign and earlier stated the very same thing as I and an above poster mentioned, the HIGHLIGHT of yesterday’s show was Steve being an a$$ to Sabrina. When that’s the hightlight of an entire episode, you have some problems…just sayin. The show is still watchable, but there is a bunch of crap on as well. I think the clock should also be ticking on the relevance of Olivia on the canvas. LoCicero is cute as a button, but this character could leave tomorrow and use the salary for someone else!

    @DonnyA2001….”praise the show for their creativity as opposed to the last regime which hated women only making them victims and only wanted to write about mob stories.”

    I still see female victims on the “new” GH. Sam has been kidnapped and has to be rescued, Maxie isn’t strong enough to expose her lie to her best friend, Allison Barrington was murdered, Connie/Kate can’t do anything without Sonny, Ellie is in a wheelchair and living only for Spinelli, Sabrina can’t stand up for herself, Carly is so damaged that she falls for a rapist and then we have cuckoos Heather, Olivia and the one time strong, Lucy. I love Anna but she was played as a victime who had to be rescued by Robert & John.

    Other than Tracy, Monica and occassionally Monica women are still victims in Port Charles.

    I just caught the promo for today’s ep, and MOLLY, RAFE, TJ, SONNY, KATE ON AGAIN! This has got to stop…looks like the only highlight will be Heather killing her beloved Steven Lars! :(
