General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Tracy complains to Luke about Duke stealing the relish, but explains she gave him fake money as a little payback.  Luke doesn’t think she made a wise decision, especially with the SEC breathing down her neck.  Tracy only cares about her missing relish.  Tracy changes the subject to Laura, and Luke feels Laura needs to know Scotty’s playing her. Tracy doesn’t understand Luke’s need to save Laura, but Luke vows he would be there for Tracy if she needed him as well.  
 


Anna’s shocked to hear Duke’s money is counterfeit.  Duke swears he wouldn’t use forged bills, and confesses they came from Tracy.  He explains the entire Pickle Lila situation to Anna. Anna points out Duke was breaking and entering.  Duke decides to confront Tracy, and Anna joins him. 

Scotty assures Laura that Anna and Luke are still together. Laura is not pleased Anna is cheating on Luke.  She feels she has to tell Luke the truth.  Scott says it isn’t their business, and advises her not to say anything.  Laura agrees, but when Scotty heads to the shower, Laura heads out.  
 
Connie accuses Kate of stealing her life and man.  Kate points out Connie hates Sonny, but Connie admits things changed due to Trey's death. Connie informs Kate that she had a psychiatrist prove Kate is the alter. Kate gets angry and throws a paperweight. The mirror shatters, and Connie disappears.  Kate heads back upstairs to Sonny. 
 
At the police station, Molly worries about what’s going to happen to Rafe.  John tells her they’re trying to set up a foster home for him. However, in the meantime, Rafe will go to a group home.  Molly wants Rafe to come home with them, but Alexis says they have to follow the rules. She also points out it would upset TJ.  Molly promises Rafe all will be fine, and he thanks her for her support.  
 
John decides to wait with Rafe.  The social service woman comes for Rafe, who thanks John for his help.  
 
TJ complains to Shawn about Molly being too invested in Rafe.  Shawn assures him everything will work out. When Molly arrives, TJ can tell something is wrong with her. He promises she can trust him with whatever is bothering her.  Molly admits she’s worried about Rafe being alone.  In turn, TJ tells her about Kate’s return, which thrills Molly. 
 
Laura shows up at the mansion to talk to Luke.  Before she has a chance, Anna and Duke arrive.  Tracy’s upset by all the people in her home, and Duke doesn't make things any better. He throws the fake money at her, and claims he wants to press charges.  Tracy wants Duke charged with breaking and entering, and theft.  Anna decides she needs to arrest both Tracy and Duke, unless they mutually decide not to pursue this further. 
 
Scotty arrives and asks to speak with Laura. Laura obliges, and Scotty tells her he thought they had decided not to get involved in Luke and Anna's relationship. He orders Laura to leave with him.  Back at the hotel, Laura hopes she did the right thing in not saying anything.  Scott reminds Laura she doesn’t have to pick up after Luke anymore. He feels they need to focus on their wedding.  

Anna tells Duke they can’t be together, because it will end up being a conflict of interest. She can’t turn a blind eye to his law breaking because, she’ll lose her job and self respect. Duke doesn’t understand, but Anna stresses she doesn’t want to go down this road again.

Loved all the action at the Q mansion and Tracy's disgust at all these people in her living room.

Line of the day:
Anna: Now, when you say relish, is that code for something, or a condiment for a sandwich.

The Scotty/Laura scene, when he ordered her to leave with him, was it weird to anyone else? It felt like he was using mind control on her. Or am I just reading too much into it.

I'm thrilled Anna dumped Duke. He was never good enough for MY Anna. Now she needs to go to work and see the hot chemistry she has with JOhn.

I had to roll my eyes when Anna mentioned calling the FBI about the counterfeit money. You'd think someone in her position would know the Secret Service deals with counterfeit money, not the FBI. It was a nice touch of reality, however, when that waiter refused to let them leave until someone (Anna) took care of the dinner bill.

I find it hard to believe that there are no Barringtons left in Port Charles, given how prominent they were at one time. Rafe ought to have some local relative who can take him in. When Alexis pointed out to Diane that Rafe is a Barrington, she saw $$$ as if she was familiar with the family "in the present".

Loving Anna's Day From Hell. It's one for the record books!

I wouldn't mind if they explore something between Duke and Tracey. But I hope that Anna dumping Duke doesn't mean that the show is going to create a quadrangle among Anna, Luke, Laura and Scotty.

I liked today's episode. I like Anna heavily patting Tracey on the back as she left and Tracey hollering ouch!

I found that last scene between Anna and Duke very heartbreaking. I guess that we'll be in for a triangle between Anna/Duke/Tracy. Don't see Anna and Luke making a comeback now that Laura is back in Port Charles.

That scene between Scott and Laura was weird indeed. Their relationship seems strange to begin with. First Scotty lets Laura promises to stay out of Luke's business and then she seems to leave just after he went under the shower. Something smells not right here.

The hug Molly and Rafe shared was very sweet. I just really like those two together. Nice match. It's only a little bit odd how they let Rafe deal with all what happened. His mother gets murdered right in front of him and his dad is a crazy serial killer. He seems too calm to me.

Connie, Kate, Connie, Kate ... WHO STILL CARES??? This character really needs to go. I'm sorry but I'm so over this mess. It's been going on for a year now. Enough is enough.

Sorry Perkie, Duke and Anna will reunite! Her hesitation today was just a hiccup and a suspense-building tactic. Duke and Anna are legendary, just like Frisco/Felicia, Luke/Laura, etc....Frank and Ron are good about delivering a payoff to the fans of the supercouples from the 80s era, a la Tina/Cord on OLTL. They will follow through the same way with Duke/Anna.

^^ Definitely the line of the day!

I was sad at Anna breaking up with Duke. I like them together.

Tracy was ON THE MONEY all day! She was hilarious.

Not at all feeling Luke/Laura/Scott. It's lame. Luke comes off nonchalant about Laura and focused on Scott; Laura extremely passive; and Scott too domineering and also focused on Luke. Perhaps, Luke & Scott should couple-up and Laura connect with Mac Wink

Also, Scott comes off like a poor man's Jack Nicholson. LOL.

Molly is super-obnoxious. I like TJ's reasoning of his situation with Molly. I'd like to see him in scenes with Mac to commiserate over being too tame to keep their ladies interested!

Oooh, the woman from social services who picked Rafe up at the police station needed her hair done before going out in public! And Rafe still going out into the cold without a jacket. LOL.

I wonder what Liz & AJ were up to...oh, wait, Kate had to square-off with Connie again.

I agree about Laura, and I'm glad it isn't just me. This is Pod-Laura we are getting. Something isn't right. I love Scotty, but I didn't like him giving Laura orders.

I'm also glad that Anna gave Duke the boot, and him committing a crime was just as good of an excuse for her to use as any. I'm holding onto hope that ME will be back at some point, and that McBam picks up where it left off. However, Finola Hughes is still a vital, sexy woman, so there's no reason why she shouldn't be involved with someone equally hot--assuming of course, that Robert isn't coming back. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Scorpio Family reunion.

While I find Duke much too disingenuous for Anna, I very much enjoy the chemistry that Tracy and Duke have. Whereas Anna is straightforward and modern (flim-flam clearly gets under her skin), Tracy enjoys the con. I also find Duke's old-world, somewhat smarmy charm more suited to Tracy's taste. Tracy is one tough cookie, but she's also very vulnerable. And she loves to be flattered. It would, therefore, be very much in-character for Tracy to be taken in by Duke.

Soapbaby--I'm with you. Yesterday I said that we always need more Mac. If things don't work out with Felicia (I don't know what Cartini's plans are here), I'd love to see Mac move on. He'd be great with Laura. He'd also be great with Anna for that matter, but GH has already given us enough two-brother triangles.

I really thought someone would take Rafe in and I was certain it would be Alexis. Rafe and John have an easy chemistry, so there's a lot of story going to waste there, too. I'd hate to see him shipped off to an orphanage never to be heard from again.

Am I the only one who thought that Connie/Kate fighting with herself over Sonny was hilarious? Any not necessarily in a good way? SMH. I had to wonder what Brenda would have thought if she walked in and saw that. This story line stinks to high heaven!

I don't really think that Scotty is controlling Laura. They are kissing all over each other when they're alone. She does seem really concerned about Luke and I think its obvious she's just settling for Scotty. That's probably the problem. Its also a little hard to trust Scotty after how terrible he was last time around. I mean he's already proven to not be trustworthy and he may be working with Helena, but I don't think there's mind control going on here at all. Just think Laura is comfortable with Scotty and settling for him. I also agree that Luke seems concerned with Laura's well-being, but he doesn't want to be with her. Tony Geary has gone on record as saying he thinks Luke belongs with Tracy now. I think RC will go against his wishing and give the fans Luke and Laura and I hope TG will get it together and act the way the script is written. When Luke first saw Laura on the Haunted Star you could see the love in his eyes, but it has been gone since that moment. Now he's just like whatever Laura, I hate Scotty.

I do agree with the comment made about Duke/Anna getting back together eventually. They are endgame and they needed something like this to happen. I would not mind an Anna/Duke/Tracy triangle at all, in fact I welcome it. I was heartbroken today when Duke and Anna broke up, that was so sad to me. It was played beautifully and the reasoning was strong so I'm fine with it, knowing that they're likely the end game. I love how all of these ridiculously talented actors are interacting and they were all in the Quartermaine Mansion at the same time. I don't think I could have even asked for something so great! Scotty/Laura/Luke/Tracy/Duke/Anna?! It does not get better than that. I will say I wish we could add Robert/Holly to the end of that. I'm a huge Robert/Anna fan and I love the pairing, but I know Duke and Anna are IT and that's what's going to happen. Not sure I really want to go down that road because I love Robert and want to cheer for whatever he's doing. I do want him onscreen like now though, I'm sure he's coming eventually.

Kate/Connie/whatever is the only drag on this show at all. Its seriously horrible to me and its unwatchable. I couldn't believe how horrible it was compared to all of the legends. And it stuck out like a sore thumb when we were getting these amazing scenes filled with greats then had Kelly Sullivan yelling at herself in a mirror. God help me.

I too think John and Anna could be hot, but I'm pretty sure Finola Hughes is great with everyone. I also think John and Alexis are hot. And I think Caleb and Sam could have been hot, not sure if John and Sam work because they're both so mellow all of the time. They're sure as hell pretty together, but whatever. With ME gone for an unknown amount of time I guess we will see what happens. All I know is this show continues to thrill me even if there are some undesirable things going on.

Count me in with the opinion that something is off with Laura...However...Scotty doesn't feel his hold over Laura is all that solid, or he would not have been so adamant about Laura not telling Luke about Anna and Duke. That tells me he is afraid that Laura will call off the engagement, if she thinks Luke is free.

Today was another good show. I have to say the dialogue on this show at times is really pretty witty...Some of their one liners are priceless. Everything at the Q mansion, and events leading up to going to the mansion... were good...Once again Konnie was the only blight on the show for me.

I was thinking the same thing about the Barrington family also. There should be some form of extended family for Rafe...but I don't think the show wants to open up that can of worms. Then they might have to cast more people for his family, and I think the plan is to put him with John eventually anyway.

tealita! Yes, you were the one who named Mac & Laura and it's now stuck in my head! Mac/John J. York is a gem and could really be paired with almost anyone or just onscreen every day.

Does anyone remember when Luke/Felicia hooked up? Although we got that GREAT catfight between Felicia and Laura, they tried Mac/Laura but it didn't work. Gia locked them on the roof and they talked about Luke/Felicia but there was never any chemistry.

Also with this Rafe thing. The reason it's so absurd is because the Barrington's came from old money. That means there are still family members alive with money that could take Rafe in. The Barrington's are like the Kennedy's or the Bush's, there is always a family member around who has money. Isn't there a Paris Hilton like cousin around to take him in?

^^ God, I wish I could wipe the image of Luke/Felicia from my memory! I cannot for the life of me remember Mac/Laura interacting. Perhaps, there could be chemistry now_ a long time has passed. And now you reminded me of awful, awful Gia!

Soooo, Luke's drinking is now played for laughs? He mowed down a preschooler while driving drunk. Just a few months ago he wasn't touching the stuff in "The Floating Rib" and now he regularly downs Tracy's alcohol. How fun! Note my sarcasm and disgust. Apparently, Luke's intervention meant nothing but Tony Geary's most recent Emmy. I also dislike that Tracy attended that intervention and says nothing to Luke about drinking.

And, I don't care if it's Tony Geary's "acting choice", it's wrong for Luke Spencer.

^^OMG! Don't get me started. I saw that, but promised myself that I wouldn't go off on a rant about it; no today, anyway. That really chaps my ass. I really wanted Laura to take Luke to task over his drinking, and I can't get back on the L&L bus unless they do.

its really really weird the show isn't addressing Jake between Luke and Laura. That should be a really big story... Luke KILLED their grandchild! But no, Laura is too consumed with making sure the poor Luke isn't being cheated on. If this were even the tiniest tiniest bit realistic Laura would be furious with Luke. Maybe once they find out Lulu's not actually having a kid, they'll remember that kid ( i mean grandchild) Luke mowed down.
Sorry but I just cannot get on the L&L train until Luke gets his comeuppance. I don't think every one always needs to "pay" for their crimes on soaps... i.e. Sonny or jail time, etc. But it could at least be mentioned in conversation/dialog... and addressed as angst or a giant problem to overcome, rather then stupid Scotty, or the dumb Ice Princess.

Perkie, I think you have something there about Scotty and Laura. Something seems off, like he's controlling her in some way. I hope that eventually changes because I know Genie Francis has stated she wanted to play Laura as a strong woman, not a victim anymore, and here she is being controlled by Scotty. I really hope there is more to this story because I was hoping Cartini would make Laura stronger. I like the snarky remarks between Scotty and Luke but somehow Tony Geary doesn't seem like he's into the whole Luke and Laura thing anymore. I agree, they should discuss Jake!
Tracy is always funny (but I wish Jane Elliot, and I adore her, but tone down a bit of the screaming!!!) Tired of the whole Connie/Kate DID story. It's identical to Jessica on OLTL and I'm sure there will be another personality coming out (I just hope Kate doesn't get pregnant but I'm afraid that is what will happen). The whole story is just dumb and dull.
I started watching DOOL's on Soapnet and that show is smokin' with hot romance and sex (EJ and Sami have major chemistry which is rare lately on the soaps today). GH should take some lessons. Again, where is the romance?!!!Watching the old Felicia and Frisco flashbacks - I miss that love in the afternoon of the 80's. What happened? Is it the writing or that the actors are just not giving it all like they used to (like in the Gloria Monty days). The couples back then just sizzled with chemistry. There is not one couple on GH right now that even comes close to those days. Even Luke and laura are dull this time around.

GOLINOGAL, I agree with you on the Jake part of GHs history. I thought it a very compelling story that it was Luke, in a DUI moment, ran over his grandson and did not remember it at all. They did a huge INTERVENTION stand alone episode and all about his drinking during the whole story. They even sent him away ... even though he left the place shortly thereafter. But Luke never paid for his crime and I am surprised that since they went down that road to make an example of Luke that they did not include a MADD moment and also prison time.

It was just one of those dumb soap plot twists over the past decade of soaps that the writers put in there and then give a simple solution to that leave the fans saying "wait, he killed someone?!!"

Thankfully, that was not CARTOONY.

I am one of the people/fans who is over all these "let's get back together" redux stories from the far off glory days of GH. From Frisco coming back after 2 decades of missing his daughter's and brother's death, to his other daughter's murder trial and cousin's funeral and many other trivails TO a redux of Anna with Robert/Duke/and any other pairing. To even the return of Laura with Scotty in tow and Luke jealous.

I am all for the characters returning, but after 20 years of being dumped and left abandoned, I would hope that Felicia would have the balls to just simply say to Frisco "Listen, you might have been saying lives all these years for the government, but that was selfish, because during that time your family needed saving more and you weren't there! Mac was and that's why I am in love with him." Eventually, I know that may be the outcome but I think the return of Frisco, the super spy/agent, could have been better served if he had returned, let's say to take down Duke who has been behind so much other than being comatose for 20 years.

Even the Duke and Anna pairing is dull this time around. I hope it does turn out he is back in the mob and that AJ was foolish to hire him. And maybe it's with Tracey's help they get control of ELQ from the back from the dead Duke and we see a joint team of AJ and Tracey at the company. (Fighting, of course, but still working alongside one another as Aunt and nephew).

When is CONNIE story over?!!! I am tired of no one suggesting Connie/Kate go to deep therapy for mental help/health. It's a weird story that no one is mentioning it.

But I do like the show. I just always want it my way. lol

Ahhh, but which supercouple is THE supercoupe? For me, it's Robert and Anna. So until MY Robert recovers and returns after saving Robin, I"m okay with Anna flinging it up with McBain.

Sonny did briefly mention it, but she didn't want to hear about it. He should have pushed the issue, but he's Sonny, and well, he's waited five whole months.

A lot of suspecting that Scotty has some sort of mind control over Laura. Perhaps you are all correct. Maybe Scott DID send the Ice Princess to Lulu. Maybe Scott is working with Helena to control Laura the way Helena controlled Lucky with it.

Hmmm...perhaps, Scott does have a microchip implanted into Laura's brain which not only controls her mind but also has a very accurate GPS locater! How the heck could Scott track Laura down to the Q mansion? Wink

I'm glad to see it's just not me who thinks the Laura we are watching is "off"! She seems to taking her response cue's from what Scotty says, rather than have independent thought. Her concern over the Anna/Duke/Luke aspect seems even more odd, it's the only part of her that seems to be acting in an independent nature.

I'm not suggesting the writing is weird, I just can't figure out what the heck is going on. Unless Scotty is really there for revenge and using Laura to get to Luke and to get back at Lulu, I'm at a loss. I can't see Scotty using Laura, he's always had the same uncomfortable obsession with Laura that Luke has! I'm sure it will make more sense in time. Genie is doing a fine job not behaving as herself, it has us all scratching our heads!

It'll be interesting to see how this unfolds.

Another great avatar GHFan777! Agree with everyone here. I see them heading down a Duke/Tracy road and it's a fabulous idea imo. Laura is still being written as a bit more passive than i'd like, but i'll ride this story out and see where it goes. I've always found Kin Shriner hot and want to see him stick around, at least for a bit.

Does anyone know if Lynn Herring is sticking around a bit longer? I thought maybe we'd know yesterday if Lucy would hopefully have some more story or not.

Loved loved love Finola Hughes, she hits it out of the ballpark in every scene, always finding the right tone.

I didn't mind Sean (Shawn?) as much yesterday as i normally do. He had good advice for TJ but yeah TJ needs to stop being so co-dependent.

Yesterday was a fairly good example of mixing up the old and the new and making it work.

Agree with Perkie about all the action at the Q mansion. I thought Laura was supposed to be bringing a secret with her to PC, was that secret her engagement to Scotty, or something else? I liked seeing the intimacy with Scotty and Laura and PREFER that it's not mind control or forced. I'm more than content to have this ride out for a bit and see where it goes. I would add that Francis is playing this a BIT like she's begrudgingly being intimate, or hesitant in general, tho professing her love for him near the end. Let's see Scotty and Lucy in some scenes!

Kelly Sullivan CONTINUES to be CarTini's muse for whatever reason, or maybe it's just that DID stories are a bit more paint by the numbers and easier to write? It's sorta how i felt about Bree Williamson being overexposed on OLTL, except that Sullivan for me is a much more enjoyable actress, but still TOO MUCH screen time for my liking. Since they took Jess/Tess/Bess/Wes/Guess to the very limit, i don't know how this story could offer up any shockers...

This is par for the course pretty much that the Wed/Thurs eps are the best of each week. Are they still off track with the airing of episodes? Today could be a stinker...

Count me in as seeing that GF's Laura is "off" and thinking there may be a connection with the "mind control" aspect that was a part of Helena's dealings with Lucky. Whether it's a branch of the Ice Princess re-visit is yet to be seen but certain words or phrases KiSh's Scott is using in relation to Luke and himself seem to be keeping Laura "docile", compliant if you will. When he is away from her, the influence is less intense and she seems able to think on her own. Reminds me a little bit of GL back in the day when Signey Coleman was a recast for Cynthia Watros' Annie and used certain words/phrases to control Robert Newman's Josh Lewis. And having only been a casual observer of OLTL, I'm aware that RoHo and TSJ's Todd and Victor were victims of Irene Manning and her black opps training/mind control shenanigans. It's not a stretch to believe with Scott's being a lawyer he'd have access to government information about such activities. I could see him making a devil's deal with Helena that would extract revenge for himself on Luke and L, while Laura is "distracted". In the end, Helena gets everything she's wanted from the day she cursed the Spencer's... Innocent

Awww TY Iowa...I love changing my avatar up, and spreading around my love for my favorite characters. I haven't had a F&F one lately, and after their scenes the other day... I am feeling my love for this couple all over again. I loved the 80's couples on GH.

((((Swan))) I have been wanting to do this since I heard about JMB. I know you are such a Lante fan, as well a fan of each actor. I figure you are pretty sad about Julie leaving, and I am sorry about that. I hope you can embrace this new actress in the role, and your love for Lante continues.

Yes, let's hope and pray annoying/ditzy MR can step up as Lulu, tho she's a bit old(er) for the part!

GHFan, i absolutely LOVED the F&F scenes the other day, a definite highlight for the week. KW is playing every beat of this story, whether it's her own personal journey she's playing or Felicia's, it's all great! I think ppl are being a bit tough on JW, i think he's hit all the emotions necessary, at least as what's written on the page. My last image of him was on DWTS, and it wasn't too favorable lol. Like Jon Hensley, Peter Reckell and other 80s hearththrobs, he's definitely upped his game and i'd welcome more returns from him.

Iowa...I actually got all teary in the F&F scenes. They moved me at least...I think they are both doing a good job...Hard to just step back into that after 20 years.

I don't really watch Y&R...I have tried because I have a good friend that loves that show...and then Tristan went there, followed by Genie and now SBu...So I have attempted to get into it...but the show just doesn't grab me. I have seen MR on there however, and I thought she was good, as well as having a lot charisma and charm...She is supposedly only 3 years older than JMB, which really isn't anything in soaps. So hopefully that will not be a issue...It certainly isn't anything compared to the age difference between Dom Z and LLC (9 years and his mother)...or KSu playing a age contemporary of LLC and MB, while being 15 years younger.

IOWAHAWKEYE-Me bad. Wink GHFan777-You're a doll. Smile My sorrow about JMB is matched by my anger that a two time emmy winning actress, who had given her notice in JULY and graciously agreed to give them extra time is being treated so shabbily by TPTB. Stare It's bad enough the "could-have-been- uplifting" surrogacy story has been turned into a mockery of the process. To have her airtime be reduced to a mere trickle is an example of disrespect and disregard for the thought and care that went into building a character that JMB made her own from the beginning. It's a variation of what happened with SBu when he elected to leave the role of Jason. (How he chose to handle his departure is a seperate subject.) In both cases, from what I've seen, neither has been shown the decency that any artist should have for the time and effort that was put out for the viewing public over an extended period of their lives. If I had the ability to spit nails... but that would not be helpful.
