General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Monica is shocked to discover Liz at her door.  Liz wants to see AJ, but Monica claims he’s in bed sleeping.  Liz informs her they had a fight earlier, which she now regrets. Liz needs to speak with AJ.  
 


Carly worries Monica might run into Liz, and say something to her.  AJ is certain his mother would never say anything.  Carly tries to leave, but is stopped when she sees Monica and Liz at the front door.  
 
Ellie tells Spin she has something important to tell him, but Maxie grabs the phone out of Ellie's hand. She tells Spin that Ellie had to leave, and will call him later.  Spin wonders what’s wrong, and Maxie tells him Ellie hacked into her records.  
 
Lulu’s not happy when Dante declares he’s going to stay at Milo’s as well.  Max shows up, and Milo is angry with him for telling Dante. However, Max feels he was looking out for Dante. He also believes Milo’s in the wrong in this situation. Milo was only trying to help Lulu.  Lulu decides she’s had enough, and takes off.  
 
Laura stops by Windermere to check on Nikolas, and wonders why Liz isn’t with him. Nik tells her Liz was there, but left after they kissed.  Nik admits he still has feelings for Liz, which surprises Laura, who thought Liz and AJ were together.  Nik explains how AJ warned him off, and Liz broke up with him.  
 
Laura’s not happy to hear Nik is interested in Liz, and reminds Nik he nearly lost his brother the last time. She warns Lucky may not be forgiving the second time.  Nik points out Lucky is gone, and he let Liz go. Laura still believes Lucky would find Nik and Liz being together painful. Nik swears it’s more about AJ, and the fact Liz shouldn’t be with him.  Laura knows Nik will be labeled a home wrecker again.  She doesn’t think it's right for Nik to break up Liz and AJ’s relationship.  She tells him to stay out of it, but Nik admits he can’t.  
 
Ellie still wants to tell Spin the truth, since he deserves to know he’s the father of Maxie’s baby.  Maxie tells her Lulu and Dante want a child, and that shouldn’t change simply because Maxie made a mistake by sleeping with Spin.  Ellie insists everyone involved deserves to know the truth.  Maxie wonders if Ellie really wants Spin to know the truth, because Spin will want to be involved in the child and Maxie's life. 
 
Maxie feels the baby move, as does Ellie.  Maxie says Spin doesn’t want kids with her, and Lante desperately want a baby. She honestly believes this is best for everyone.  Ellie gets a call from Spin, but ignores it and leaves.  
 
AJ comes downstairs to intercept Liz.  She tells him that she didn’t like how they left things, and she overreacted.  AJ admits he acted badly as well, and knows there is nothing between her and Nik.  Liz tells him Nik admitted he had feelings for her, and they kissed.  She tells AJ she stopped the kiss, because she wanted to see what would happen between them.  Liz doesn’t want them to hide things from each other.  AJ’s happy they’re getting a do over. 
 
Monica heads to AJ’s room to find the hussy he slept with, and finds Carly hiding in the closet.  Carly swears this was a one-time thing, and wants nothing more do with AJ. Monica is angry Carly may have messed up the possibility of AJ and Liz.  Carly knows Liz has been through hell, and doesn’t deserve AJ.  The two claim they will never mention what happened the prior evening, and Monica escorts Carly out of the house.   
 
Monica confronts AJ, and warns him Liz can never find out what happened between him and Carly.  
 
Dante finds Lulu at The Floating Rib, and proceeds to tell her about their first meeting there. He brings up the game of pool they played, and a few others who were there that night. Lulu has a brief flash of the event, and Dante asks if she remembered something. Milo shows up before Lulu can answer, and Lulu decides it’s all too much. She takes off again, with Milo.

Nothing is funnier than Carly getting caught in the closet by her sex partner's mother.

AJ/Liz had potential for me but not anymore.

Loved the Laura/Nik scenes but I need people to stop talking about Lucky's feelings, like they matter at this point. For all we know, Lucky could be sleeping his way through Ireland and Africa not giving a crap what his brother and his ex are doing.

It was interesting to see them re-do the Lante meeting scenes with nuLu. I actually didn't remember most of that, except when Ethan and Lucky showed up and beat the crap out of Dante, which we didn't get to see this time around.

Milo needs to back off now. It's not his place.

Nikolas, Shut up. You're bullying Liz just like AJ. He's just doing it in hush, calm and polite tones. It reminds me of something he said during the original Niz storyline. "You didn't want me, but I took you anyway." He wants to beat AJ more than to love Liz.

I prefer Quiz over A.C., but that's not going to happen. When Liz finds out about AJ's affair, she's going to slice his balls off with a scalpel. AJ and Carly are emotional cowards, and they would never admit that they had genuine feelings for each other.

Monica is a gem, and I hope she gets more material during the A.C. fallout.

i knew they were going to re-film scenes from Lulu's past with the new actress just like they did with Laura Wright when she took over the Carly role and went down memory lane with her therapist.

still not feeling Marcy Rylan as Lulu. maybe they should just write her as a spunky/bubbly role like Lizzie & Abby that she plays and that's where her strength are. i don't think she can do serious drama.

:-\

i wonder if Carly will become pregnant again by AJ??

I loved the scenes with AJ, Carly, and Monica. More please...

Woulda loved if Carly had used the line "Y'know a mother shouldn't be in the room 'the morning after'" said to her by Brenda after her non-tryst with Michael. Woulda been very Carlivati comedic turnaround.

Or Liz then sleeps with AJ too and we can have a "who's the momma?" story!
Oh wait...

How about...
STD hijinks with who gave what to whom...that could be an awkward way to have to broach the subject of the one-night stand. Chlamydia is very topical.

I agree and I think it has been subtley showing during different scenes. Particularly, that scene with the two of them when Carly had just learned Todd's involvement in the baby switch. As much as he wanted to gloat, AJ eventually took care of her that night. And in the episodes a few days ago, I think Carly, in Carly's way, was trying to stop AJ from drinking when she kept egging him on and told him what would happen if he did. I like them together. There is an explosive chemistry between the two.

AJ didn't even swoosh around any mouthwash before he went down there and gave Liz that kiss on the cheek. So Liz told AJ about what transpired between her and Nik but AJ didn't speak a word about him and Carly. That's very telling and that's what is going to be the end of Quiz. Tracy will hear about what happened.

Laura taking about Lucky, the man who cries more than anyone, is a rock? I'm not understanding why Laura is taking Lucky's side over Nik's. Laura knows everything Lucky has done but yet Nik is the bad one. Liz and Lucky are no longer together. Nik has the right to love and be with Liz. Lucky is a Non MF Factor!! Then Laura calls Nik a homewrecker, what! When Laura kisses Luke, I hope Nik throws that in her face. Laura slept with brothers. Nikolas is what Stefan was to her so she should understand.

I hate when they redo scenes. I don't believe in that. Didn't like that scene with Lulu and Dante. Milo does need to butt out but it seems Ron loves him and wants to make him a lead actor.

In the redo scenes ER was truly channeling JMB. Great job.

At least AJ had the decency not to kiss LIz on the mouth.

Lucky's head is full of rocks. Lucky talks to rocks. Lucky spends days staring at drugs like a rock.

The problem with Liz/Nik, is the two spent the last ten years as bro/sis considering she was with Lucky most of the time. My sisters and I would be pissed if we bed hopped with any of our exes.

Lucky once wanted Emily so bad that he hoped Nik never regained his memories, he and Sarah constantly tried to do the nasty before Liz called off their first wedding, and Liz caught the two having sex at Kelly's diner. Nik wanted Emily, Courtney, Rebecca and Liz while they were unavailable (what a home wrecker!).

Nasty AJ/Carly sex. I, too, looked forward to Quiz, but it seems that FV is pimping Becky and Tyler way too hard on Twitter, has other ideas. What a bummer. I was looking forward to a Hardy and Quartermaine union.

Monica needs her own bed buddy so that she can stay out of her grown sons sex life!

OMG. Are the TIIC delibberately trying to drive Lante fans away!?? These are precious iconic scenes to me and to see them redone with NOtLu who isn't nearly as pretty, charming or talented as JMB is sacrilege. Seriously!

I hate this!

Lante is dead. Let DZ out of this mess. Pair him with Maxie. They both need a good partner.

I loved the scenes with Lulu and Dante at Jake's and I felt their chemistry, but lord have mercy I would smack the taste out of Milo's mouth. He needs to butt out.

And I also don't get the "they are deliberately trying to drive Lante fans away" What should Cartini do just fold up shop because JMB DECIDED on her OWN to leave. I for one love that Dante is fighting for his wife, cause we all know it's not in his genes, I mean Sonny practically beat down every wife he ever had, and only since Connie did he even show an ounce of emotion for someone with mental issues

I can see Quiz but all good triangles have bumps in the road, and we all pretty much know that once Liz finds out she will run straight into Nik's arms while still harboring feelings for AJ.

I get Carly falling back into bad habits but I don't see Cartini making them a real couple because there is way too much history and in the end as much as it would make Sonny's head explode I don't see it as a realistic option. SO unless Cartini has no choice because he can't or won't put Carly back with Roger's new character then and only then can see it as a possibility.

Oh yeah and please no more talk about LUCKY and his feelings, thankfully Nik brought up that Lucky isn't allowed to be judgmental anymore

The Carly/Monica scenes were just so funny (very soap-ish like the 80's scenes on GH). Leslie C., (Monica), shouldn't wear low blouses. Her face is so smooth and pulled but her chest is all wrinkled. It emphasizes too much the plastic surgery she's done on her face. But , I love Monica and glad to see her and Tracy more and more on the show. The character of Monica barely existed under Guza/Phelps. Liz is one lucky woman having all these guys fighting over her. Is it possible Carly will become pregnant again with AJ's child? It's kind of yucky but gives a whole story-line for Liz with AJ, Nicolas, and Carly. Will wait and see. All this talk about Lucky, wonder if JJ will soon make an appearance on the show while "Nashville" is on hiatus.

I don't think it will come from Tracy, I think Carly will take care of it herself. Her line to Monica about "Liz has been through heartache, why have her with trainwreck AJ" was very telling for me. I thought, wow Carly is thinking of someone other than herself, especially LIz, whom she's never liked. But then I figured that was foreshadowing for Carly being the one to drop the bomb on LIz, to "save" her from AJ and his distructiveness.

The Carly/AJ/Monica scenes were hysterical! Poor Leslie C. shouldn't be criticized for having some wrinkles - we all get old at some point! Nik would have no problem on B & B where all the brothers, fathers and grandsons pass around the same women (Brooke and Taylor).

Monica made the show today! I really hope the new writers continue to find ways to utilize a character and actress that drove this show for a couple decades until she disappeared one day.

Oh, and I agree with Perkie ... I'm guessing it will be Carly who decides to lower the bomb on Liz at some point. Either to "help" Liz or to crush Liz. Either way, it will be another reason to despise Carly.

Hum.... how will Liz find out about Carly? My guess is that Carly's going to end up pregnant and Liz will find out that way, but I don't think they'll let Carly carry the baby too long.

I don't like AJ or Nic for Liz, but TC and RH make a better looking couple.

I laughed when Monica found Carly standing in the closet. Classic.

Lulu doesn't want to even try to remember her life. She's the same old selfish witch she was before. Milo knows he's wrong to keep her away from Dante, yet he does it anyway. If Milo sleeps with her before she regains her memories, I'm going to feel about him the same way I felt about Johnny sleeping with Connie. At least Johnny was being blackmailed into it. Milo just doesn't seem to care about Lulu's mental well being right now, he's just seeing what he wants. I hope they don't try to give him a bigger role on GH. I don't care how rocking his body from the neck down is, he's just filler.

The only thing is I see Carly being too embarrassed to tell anyone she slept with AJ. Imagine if Michael found out. I do see Carly maneuvering so that Tracy will find out and spill the secret. Or Tracy might walk in on Monica and AJ talking about it. I know Monica will be berating AJ for a while about that.

THe aj/carly and monica scenes were gold. Im thinking it all comes out from Tracy too via a convo between monica and aj. They have written that liz is the only one that knows how to quell ajs panic attacks and tracy made the point that panic attacks disqualify you from running a major multinational corporation. If she can get liz to bail that certainly might make it harder for aj to control his health issue.

Carly has had difficulties with pregnancy so this is a strange story, but yeah i wouldnt be surprised that she gets preggers. If so, the pregnancy should be risky if it mirrors the joss pregnancy so I wonder if aj will want her to move in to the Q mansion.

I thought laura was WAY out of line. First she leaves nik on his deathbed for lulu and hasnt even addressed that and now luckys feelings come first. I hate that nik always gets the short end of the stick.

I can understand the JMB fans not liking the redo even if they were necessary. Im not sure I would love see a nujason playing dominos with sam. I almost think they should create a new "memory" where they talk about the other memories with the old actor and then add in the new - ie remember the first time we played pool at jakes. We played pool and haggled over the juke box. then the second time we danced - the flash back to a scene that never was shown before. Im having a hard time warming to nululu. she seems so much younger than jmb's lulu. i cant see her being a mother, wife and business owner. jmbs lulu seemed closer to 30 and not 20 and with emme its the other way. In case lante doesnt work, I wish they would start showing more dante maxie scenes. A daxie vs. spellie custody battle might be interesting. your honor she hid the pregnancy and was going to give the child away. your honor he worked for a mob hit man and still often works for the local mob kingpin. your honor I was the guy who she was giving the baby away to and at least i wanted the kid which ellie the medical records thief did not.
