General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Lucy believes Sam is the best candidate to become Rafe's foster parent. She points out Sam owes him for saving Danny.  Alexis feels Sam has been through a lot over the past year, and taking Rafe in might be too much. She knows they’ll find another foster home for Rafe.  Sam disagrees with her mother, and thinks becoming Rafe's foster parent isn't such a bad idea at all.
 


Olivia’s upset Connie dumped Sonny, especially since he stood by her.  Connie loves Sonny, but believes they have a dysfunctional relationship, which will undermine her recovery. Connie is trying to rebuild her life, and knows her personalities will try to battle for control.  She believes Sonny was the catalyst that splintered her in the first place, and she has to let him go.  Olivia finally understands, and offers her support. 
 
Carly doesn’t understand why Sonny isn’t infuriated Brenda took advantage of Michael.  She feels Michael trusted Brenda, who exploited Michael only to pay back Carly for telling Jax the truth. Carly wants Sonny to make Brenda disappear, but he knows Michael would feel guilty.   
 
AJ and Brenda hug, and are happy to see each other after all these years.  AJ tells her not to feel bad about what happened with Michael, since they are both consenting, single adults.  After AJ leaves, Michael informs Brenda he told Sonny the truth, because he owed it to him.  Brenda wishes he hadn’t and blames it all on Carly.  
 
Liz is annoyed with Nik for defying doctor’s orders, and being out of bed.  Nik’s tired of being stuck in bed, but agrees to sit in a chair.  Liz tells him that Dante and the Spencer’s are on their way back with Lulu.  AJ walks in, as Liz and Nik hug. 
 
Nik spots AJ and the two reluctantly greet each other. Liz gets called away, and AJ warns Nik to stay away from Liz. He doesn't think Liz needs to be reminded of Nikolas and the complicated history they share right now. Nikolas points out AJ’s many faults, and he doesn't believe AJ is best for Liz.  Liz returns, and feels the tension in the room. She wonders what’s going on between the two men.  
 
Alexis warns Sam not to feel pressured into this decision, but Sam admits the house feels empty without Jason. She honestly believes it’s something Jason would have done.  Sam feels she has the space and money to support Rafe.  She’s willing to try.   
 
Sonny tells Carly about Connie, and then how he thought Brenda was out of his life. He doesn’t understand why she did what she did.  Carly says Brenda would rather have Sonny hate her, than ignore her. She knows Brenda will keep using Michael.  
 
Alexis talks to the judge, who agrees to allow Rafe to stay with Sam for 90-day grace period. Everyone celebrates, and Sam takes Rafe home with her. 
 
Michael tells Brenda he feels something is broken now between him and Sonny, all because he made a bad decision that can’t be changed.  Brenda suggests maybe they can change it. She admits she has a confession to make.

I still don't understand how single Sam with a new baby, makes a better foster parent that Lucy and Doc together.

Yeah Brenda, you think now that you've ruined Michael's relationship with his father, you should come clean. Stupid ditz. And I hate Sonny as Michael's father.

I am so glad that they got Lucy back on this show.

Sam is a convicted prostitute and could not adopt a child while she was with Jason, so how in the heck is her taking in Rafe even feasible? Also, Sam has gone from the old "supposed" ride and die chick to being just like every other woman on the show with a couple of babies and I 'm including Rafe in that category....LMAO!

LMAO at Brenda about to tell Michael that there is no way in hell she would ever sleep with him. Carly will rule the day that she opened up a hotel guests room and started running off at the mouth.

Liz has two men in a pissing contest over her. Party

Ugh. I was sure hoping that Connie was going to leave town and take Olivia with her. Of course, another poster thinks killing off Olivia would give great story for MB, DZ, and KSu.

I really miss Joe Jr. and Tracy!

Has there ever been a time when Nik has not gone after a woman involved with another man? He went after Emily, Courtney and Liz while they were involved with other men.

The scene where Sam took Rafe home ended with Rafe totally checking his new foster mommy out! Did anyone else notice how his eyes wandered in that last shot of him? I don't blame him, but I wonder if that was intentional or unintentional. Probably unintentional, but it made me say, "All right, Rafe!" Wink

Carly demanding that Brenda has to pay and insisting that Sonny wants her dead made me sick. I thought the days where Carly was running to the mobster and basically asking for someone to be killed are over. Well guess again, I guess. -.-

I agree with you, Perkie. I don't know why single mom Sam makes a better legal guardian than Lucy and Kevin. But whatever.

It was great seeing Brenda and A.J. together and them hugging each other. Reminded me of the mid 90s when Brenda was hanging out in the Quartermaine mansion. And of course she didn't sleep with him.
I don't like Sonny as Michael's father either. I always felt that the Quartermaines were robbed and that it was stupid that Sonny made A.J. sign away his rights. This kid should have been raised a Quartermaine.

Olivia understood the situation when she left Sonny's. I don't get why she had the same argument with Connie, claiming not to understand why Connie had to leave Sonny. In the end, all of the sudden, she got it - again. Huh!?

I'm curious if we'll only get a tease of a A.J./Liz/Nikolas triangle or if they really going to play it. Anyway I liked the scenes that involved those three.

I don't care about anything else that happened today. Niz was perfection

Everything about them how Nik caressed her cheek when she was trying to get him back to bed and he was saying he was fine to when he hugged her and stroked her hair. I loved the AJ and Nik scenes also. They didn't get loud and ignorant. They both stated why each is wrong for Liz. I like that AJ stood in front of Nik and his chest to block Liz's view!

Yeah Lucy raised two girls yet she can't take in a foster child who is also her cousin. Didn't Rafe sign the birth certificate. Doc is a big time psych doc and Lucy has good money but the judge say no. Yet Sam, who was married to a big time hitman and who has lots of charges on her record is good for Rafe??? This is a plot point so Bella and Edward (molly/rafe) could be together.

Brenda just tell Michael the truth, geez

With Olivia flapping her lips about Sonny and Carly running to Sonny...and Michael tearing his heart over Sonny, I feel like GH has slithered back into the netherworld that was Guza-2011. Blah.

If they do play the AJ/Liz/Nik traingle, I think part of the plan will involve AJ doing something stupid. AJ wouldn't be AJ if he wasn't his own worst enemy. Cool

Now that so many other people are out of the closet about how much they enjoyed Niz, I suppose it's OK for me to stop referring to them as a guilty pleasure and just say that Liz and Nik are smokin' hot. That pesky moral question as to whether they should or shouldn't be together? Forget that. Just go with it! Tyler Christopher is very sexy this time around. Love

Sam hasnt been convicted of anything in about a decade. Lucy was arrested for staking a supposed vampire last month. (and if we are going to complain about absurd things is it really that much more absurd that lucy was denied custody than it was that she was released for what she did to john - okay so the escape was supposedly to lure out stephen clay but the staking incident wasnt faked as epiphany and sabrina can certainly attest) I also dont think sam fostering rafe is any more absurd that the judge dismissing kevins history like it was nothing - didnt he have a homicidal break with reality? Todays scenes is one of the many reasons i love sam - how generous that she took in someone who is pretty much a stranger to her, the same way she and jason took in spinelli back in the day. And though she has rafe and danny now, i highly doubt shes going to be hanging up her leather and guns any time soon - she is still a kick ass PI. wasnt she just tangling with a vampire not all that long ago? Not exactly boring mom story. im guessing when stephen clay shows up she will be back in action!

Nik has been working out...MMMMMMM

EET--Thank you for coming to Sam's defense. I sat here thinking about it, but I would have probably fumbled had I responded. I'm invested in Rafe and I'm glad they found a way to tie him to future story. Sam and Rafe have a sweet buddy-buddy relationship and he needs someone to rely on. I also loved Easton's easy chemistry with JD, who btw, I think is a is a great little actor.

With so many mentions of Jason, is there any doubt that he will return around May 10th. looking like a certain vampire? I say BRING IT ON!

Niz 4-EVA. I'm very glad that I'm not alone in the wilderness of liking that couple anymore. How anyone could have wanted her with the sniveling JJ/Lucky is beyond me. That being said, AJ is much stiffer competition, but still: NIZ.

Is Rafe a little person? He's certainly wee.

Who else thought that pissing fight was hot? I loved it. It has been awhile since we've had two men vie for a female on canvas. By the was Tyler looks really good. He must of been working out like crazy for his other tv role. It is funny how we have tyler and Vanessa back on GH at the same time and yet they despise each other...lol.

I like Olivia and this new Connie seems to be moving in the direction of the former fashionista. I do hope they bring back Serena so that Maxie and Serena will be the new assistants at Crimson. It would also be great to have Lucy team up with Crimson to relaunch their Coe Coe cosmetics line. I would love to have some glamour back on GH. I truly hope that this time we can have Connie in more sophisticated attire.

The Rafe thing does not make any sense. Sam was also married to an alleged hit-man! So how is it they would allow a single mother once prostitute, involved with a hit-man be a foster parent? Lucy is married to a psychiatrist! Doc would have made a better referral for Lucy. The only reasoning behind this is the fact that Michael Easton will be returning as another Morley.I am excited and can not wait to have Morgan back on screen. I do hope they bring on a black or Latin teen female to be his love interest.

I think Sam was chosen simply because she's more front-burner than Lucy will be.

I thought it was just me, but I also noticed Rafe checking Sam out in those end scenes at her apartment. Don't know if it was intentional, but let's face it, Sam ,Kelly Monaco, is this tiny girl with looks and a great figure. What teenage boy wouldn't notice? May-be it was just the actor checking her out because it would be rather icky to go there.

Nik is looking really good! I hope he will be sticking around. Liz, that lucky girl, having two guys, Nik and AJ ,after her, but she is a beauty! Hope they continue with this story with the three of them. I still feel GH needs more ROMANCE on the show!!!!

I saw and thought eeewww, please don't go there. She's old enough to be his mother (or his older sister!!). I'm hoping the Sam/Rafe thing is just so Molly has easier access to him, without him being under Alexis' roof. Although now I'm reading that ME is coming back as Steven Clay's brother, therefore Rafe's uncle, so that's probably the real reason there.

And can I just say UGH on the Steven Clay brother angle. Was there no one else ME could have been?

I HATED Niz the first time around, but gosh darn it, I'm finding them seriously cute this time around. Or maybe I'm just happy Liz might be having two boys chase after her for once and a story of her own instead of propping Sabrina.

I'm not a fan of tattoos, but Nik/TC was looking mighty fine.

Lucy can be a bit manic at times, but I did laugh when she was telling Alexis to take hunky teenage Rafe into her home with hormonal Molly and watch the house combust.

Another great episode

I don't mind Rafe going to live with Sam, but I would have much preferred him to live with Lucy. I too do not understand how Sam is a better fit than Lucy, but oh well, guess the writers know what they are doing and leading up to. It would have been nice to see him and her and Serena (when she gets there) as a little family unit. Have they mentioned where Lucy's adopted daughter Christina Scanlon is? I would love for her to come back into the picture. She was adorable on Port Charles.

Wow, Tyler Christopher's body is amazing and his tattoos are hot! Damn! I would LOVE that if my biggest problem was to choose between AJ and Nikolas! What a great problem to have!

Really enjoying the new Connie. She's being smart not being with Sonny and you can tell it's tearing her up. Looking forward to more from Kate Sullivan. And I still love Olivia...not sure where all the Olivia hate came from.

Hope Brenda stays in town!

I am sorry but AJ totally irker the hell out of me in the beginning. I mean he just talks like a darn frat boy. This is what puts me on the Niz train. They have so much going on together with their past. I got way more excited to see them together then AJ ruined it.

Carly just needs to shut it. Didn't she learn her lesson when Sonny went after Jax..

Sam looked so great yesterday- hair an make up perfection. I do love that it showed how generous she is because that is totally something Jason would have done and they did do with Spin. Living with Sam will give Rafe access to the Davis clan and the Q's. She is very connected on screen so I think it works..

I always liked Elizabeth and Nikolas they smoked but I knew they wouldn't get the writing to workl and Guza made them uber sleazy but I still was into the story because of Becky and Tyler's chemistry. I like how they act off each other and was hoping that they have some story before inserting AJ into their scenes.

I was one of only two people who openly admitted their Niz love the first time around..so as the conductor on this train I say ALL ABOARD

This is so good having Liz get some attention and not be made to look like the desperate girl craving attention

My only issue with Lucy not getting a chance to foster is that she is blood but I have no problem with Sam because her life is not a problem with no Jason. I mean Spin could have easily testified that she took him in all those years ago.

How nice is it to finally see Liz in a STORYLINE? And even more, in a triangle, where two men actually both want her?! That alone is pure gold.

Loved the AJ/ Nik scenes. It really felt powerful, and the men feel on equal playing field. Both are rich, handsome and have been around the block. I was kind of scared someone would get hurt there. Although AJ's striped shirt look is getting kind of old. And how on earth can a CEO of a major conglomerate walk around town with their shirt unbuttoned like that, casually??? It does not look flattering. Edward Quartermaine wouldn't be caught dead looking like that, LOL!

I'm still kind of just thinking Nik wants to be a good friend to Liz and protect her from all things bad. At this point I'm not seeing he would necessarily even want a big love story from her.

Why would Lucy care or worried about a possible Molly/Rafe relationship? Is it because she likes TJ and is worried about him? That didn't make any sense to me. Shouldn't she be on Rafe's side? And how come she even knows anything about Molly & Rafe being anything more than friends?

I'm not sure I get Brenda's lying. I got it at first, she wanted to make Carly mad, which succeeded. But she had to know this would get back to Sonny. Why didn't she just tell he truth right away? Did she want a reaction out of Sonny?

Loved the AJ/Brenda scene! Since Lucy said she is going to Kelly's, I hope it means there will be a Lucy/Brenda scene coming down the pike aswell.

Can't wait to see Laura, Lulu and the others today! Smile

Yoryla, unfortunately, GH (and everything else) is preempted today by the goings-on in Boston/Watertown. Live coverage preempted it in the east, and because of that, The Chew is airing in GH's timeslot in the west.

I can't stand Connie, but I absolutely hated watching Sonny, Carly and Olivia badgering her about breaking up with Sonny when they all of them know that she clearly has mental health issues and she's just trying to get better. Those 3 conversations the last couple days have done nothing but remind me of Guza's GH, and how Sonny can do no wrong and everyone else is at fault.

It makes sense to me that Sam would take Rafe in, especially since there's probably going to be two storylines coming from it, the Sam/Rafe/new ME character story, and the Molly/Rafe/TJ story. It also makes sense to me that Lucy would get denied custody seeings how she was vampire cray cray not too long ago. Heck, Rafe was lucky so many people wanted to take the chance to foster him. In real life it doesn't work out that way for teens in the system.

I don't like either AJ or Nic for Liz, so I won't comment on that besides the fact that AJ came into that room and might have well have peed his scent all over Liz's legs even though they've only technically had one date and some meaningful conversations. I do hope Liz keeps her eyes open with both of them.

Oh, and I forgot to add... I wouldn't want AJ with Brenda, but I love the idea of making Sonny's head spin if they dated.

I like a soap triangle where I cannot decide which guy Liz ends up with. I will be happy if both guys are great options and Liz gets fought over. GH has had too many two girls fighting over one less than worthwhile guy triangles of late. I like this. Nik and Liz have the history. Liz and AJ look like a slow build. Let it play out and maybe I will pick a side.

Rafe is hard pressed to find a suitable guardian in Port Charles. I think Patrick might be the only legit option. Everyone else has a history of mental illness or a background in crime. Let us be serious here! Who would leave their kid with either Sam or Lucy?

This whole Brenda with Michael deal is creepy but Carly looking for Sonny to kill her is just worse.

Ooh, I forgot about Epiphany. She would make an awesome guardian . Rafe wouldn't get away with anything ever.
