General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Tracy records the conversation between AJ and Carly about their night together.  AJ spots her, and Tracy confesses she knows he and Carly slept together behind Liz’s back. Both AJ and Carly try to deny it, but Tracy doesn't care. She’s too busy wondering how to use the information.  Tracy blames AJ for everyone getting sick, and gives him an ultimatum. He must take all the blame for the relish, or she’ll tell Liz about his night with Carly.  AJ calls Tracy’s bluff, so she heads off to find Liz.  
 


Carly warns AJ that Tracy will make good on her threat. However, AJ’s worried about the possible lawsuits against ELQ, if he admits his relish was tainted.  
 
Sam explains to Silas about his brother, the serial killer.  Silas tells her he hadn’t seen his brother in more than ten years.  Silas apologizes for what Steven Clay did to Sam and the others. Sam also tells him about Rafe.  Silas is not really interested, and Sam accuses him of not having any compassion.  Silas refuses to do penance for his brother’s sins.  
 
Liz thanks Nikolas for his support, but it doesn’t change anything between them.  Nik continues to claim AJ will screw up at some point, and his concern is only for her.  Liz is certain AJ won’t do anything to hurt her, but Tracy arrives and says he already did.  

Connie and Olivia are keeping the goon company, while they wait for confirmation from Sonny about Morgan. Sonny calls and informs the women the goon gave him the wrong address to find Morgan. In response, Olivia threatens to shoot the goon’s other knee, so he gives the correct address.  
 
The college kids realize Kiki and Morgan are cheating, and angrily leave.  Kiki is mad at Michael for interfering.  Morgan insists he’ll handle this without Sonny’s’ help.  
Soon, the original goons return.  Morgan tells them he has ten thousand, but they want the full fifty.  Michael and Morgan end up in a fistfight with the goons, until Shawn and Sonny show up.  
 
TJ becomes enraged when he spots Rafe and Molly hugging. They both assure him it’s not what he thinks.  Molly finally gets fed up with TJ, and refuses to go to the prom with him. She informs him she's already asked Rafe to prom, and he agreed.  Molly accuses TJ of not trusting or believing her.  TJ storms off.  Rafe wonders if she means it about the prom, and Molly wants them to go as friends.  
 
Tracy tells Liz that AJ doesn’t deserve her loyalty.  AJ arrives, and admits his relish caused the food poisoning, because it wasn’t FDA approved.  Liz points out they’ve been eating the relish since before they came to New York.  AJ tells her there was a problem with the preservation, and is taking full responsibility.  
 
Sonny warns the goons to take his money and leave.  Michael explains what happened.  Kiki introduces herself as Katherine.  Sonny wonders if she’s related to the Jerome family that was once in Port Charles, but Kiki denies it.  Sonny doesn’t believe it is coincidence that Morgan would be beaten up in her house.  Sonny insists Morgan leave and come home with him.

Good lord, I hate the name Silas. What were they thinking with that name? I'm just going to call him McBain or McClay.

I love Laura Wright. Love all the expressions of horror as Carly realizes what Tracy has on her.

Line of the day:
AJ: Why would I wanna sleep with her?
Carly: Yeah, why would I sleep with him?
Tracy: i don't know! I don't know why anyone would sleep with either one of you!

What's with the croc and Tracy's insistence on bringing it to the hospital. I'm pretty sure Mario Batali has bigger worries right now.

Hey AJ, your pants are on fire, liar, liar.

So, is Katherine Jerome actually Lauren Frank's half sister? Can Ellie still turn out to be Lauren?

AJ is the one person who talks about his wrongdoings out in the open and gets shocked when someone overhears him and uses it against him.

Glad Tracy got the leg up on him. I never liked this Pickle Lila storyline because Tracy was left the Pickle Lila in the will. AJ never had any rights to it.

Like that Liz called her and AJ a "relationship" only because that means I get to see when Quiz crashes after Liz finds out about Carly and AJ. Also it keeps Niz apart so I can see the push and pull between them and all the angst. But before Quiz ends, I need to see at least ONE romantic scene between them. Can AJ take her to dinner? Dancing? something.

Silas. Someone has been watching Vampire Diaries! Sam was acting like Lucy today. It was too hard to watch the Kiki scenes. I loved Sonny telling Morgan to shut up and let him handle it. Love that scene!!!! But why did Morgan ask what about Kiki. Isn't she in her mom's house? So why does she need to go with Morgan? Let her and her head stay there.

I really hate to see Tracy gain an advantage over AJ. She is such a rude and miserable excuse for a human being. She doesn't care who she hurts in her pursuit of control of ELQ, or anything else she happens to want at any given time. I used to enjoy the character but Tracy seems to have been turned into a caricature of a greedy bitch with an acid mouth. JA is marvelous in the role but then she can do any script given to her.

Kiki wasn't awful. Not the best by any means, but not awful. Surprised they went with the name Katherine, as many viewers still miss and love the character of Katherine Bell.

I think Ellie is going to be Lauren. There's no way they're going to make Chad Duell and Kristen Alderson cousins on the show. Besides, it isn't a big stretch with the non-traditional nicknames. Katherine to Kiki, Lauren to Ellie.

I love the characters of AJ and Tracey and feel the same way about SK and JE but this AJ/Tracey battle has been so vapid and shallow that I can't begin to care about it because AJ and Tracey only have this contentious relationship with no undertones of affection at all.
Tracey may be a beeyotch to Monica but deep down she loves her sister-in-law and we have been given moments where the affection the two women have for one another are shown. But with AJ it is just pure hatred and disdain with no underlying affection at all between the two of them and that makes this fight for ELQ just seem hollow. My dearly departed Guiding Light did the upper crust family that eats their own thing perfectly with the Spauldings. No matter how horrible Alan, Alex, Phillip and the rest were to one another there was never any doubt that they all loved each other. I need to see a genuine moment between AJ and Tracey (maybe she is present for one of AJ's panic attacks and helps him through it) that shows how complicated and multi-faceted their relationship is because as it stands their I traction is just cartoonish.

And I loathe Nikolas. I have detested the character since the day Tyler resumed the role and us overly judgmental douchebag attitude towards AJ is annoying and makes Nikolas seem like an e en bigger ass than I already thought he was.

Silas is a dreadful name but I like that he is a bit if a pompous ass. And ME and KM have great chemistry no matter who they are playing.
Kiki is an even worse name but I like KA as a bt f a bad girl.

Molly annoys me more than any fictional character should. She created this situation where TJ is feeling insecure and Rafe is thinking that she is interested in him romantically by the way she became Rafe's instant stalker when he came to town. Both guys dumping her would be the perfect end to this triangle.

People are wondering about the name SILAS?!

Vampire Diaries.

We just finished up with the original vampire in Port Charles and he disappeared (everyone thought he was dead) but fans know he came back to life.

On the Vampire Diaries, for the past year, they have been talking about a really old and evil vampire NAMED SILAS.

I may be stretching here, but who knows.

As for Tracey, LOVED IT ALL!!! She's one great character and actress.

AJ needs to step it up and romance Liz or walk away.

Nik is still a creepy ass stalker. It's a good thing that Liz woke up or Nik probably would have crawled into her hospital bed. Sick

Tracy has been so loud and obnoxious. She manipulated AJ into not saying goodbye to Edward on the man's death bed. For all we know, Edward could have lasted long enough to change his will which is probably why Tracy kept AJ away from Edward.

Is ME's character suppose to be in drag? What's up with the binocular eye glasses and ratty hair pulled back into a bun?

I had to laugh out loud at the utter contrivance of Starr/Kiki sharing scenes with Michael/Sonny her second day on the show. The same nonsense occurred with Sam/McBain/Clay whatever the character's name.

First Kiki and now we've got Silas. Don't know what to say ... maybe I should just laugh at it.

I didn't like Olivia waving a gun around since she was always so judgmental of the mob and all things that came with it. Hell, isn't that why she broke off things with Johnny!? But it's not the first time that the character appeared as one big hypocrite.

Tracy was amazing today. Loved very scene with her.

Those Michael/Kiki/Morgan scenes were awful to watch. And that Kiki is one horrible character. It becomes more clear day by day. I hope that she turns out to be Lauren Jerome, because that would give the character some much needed meaning.

The whole Silas thing seems unreal. He had no idea what his brother was up to?

This week the show has moved into the realm of the ridiculous.

AJ is an idiot. Next Tracy will demand he relinquish control of ELQ, duhuh.

The big question I have is if Ellie is Lauren (which would be great), why is she going by Ellie Trout? It's a great name, plus Ellie is on recurring status...I am not sure they would put a recurring cast member as a Quartermaine...unless they she is being bumped up Smile

Also of note is that Faux Lauren that Damian met was an Ellie lookalike which has a few possibilities:
Luke hired her knowing that Spinelli would find her attractive and be further distracted by her.
The writers were tipping their hand and hinting that Ellie = Lauren
The writers were purposely punking the audience with the Ellie= Lauren theory

Carly's lack of self awareness is amazing. Her sons are missing, and she is worried about Michael's being traumatized by her booty call. Michael has been shot, comatose, murdered someone in self defense, imprisoned and raped, but finding out his biological parents had sex will push him over the edge.

With all that being said, AJ and Carly needs to stop having all this chemistry because they're delightful, and it kills me to want them together. Quiz isn't meant to be with Nikolas' charm offense rolling at steam.

Tracy has become a shrieking shrew but I love Jane Elliot and she is so good with comedy, her eyes, her looks, just make me laugh. And, how great is it that an actress, at her age, is getting all this story-line, (we'd NEVER see this under Guza/Phelps), so despite those awful Chew scenes, I am trying not to complain too much. I'd love to see more of Monica. I always thought it would be great to have a character like David Vickers, (Tuc Watkins), who loves to manipulate older, rich women, come on and romance both Tracy and Monica. I can just see the cat fights! But, he's back on OLTL, but I still rather watch the vets then, Molly, Rafe, TJ, Morgan. I just can't get into the teenage storylines.
I rewatched yesterday's show on Soapnet and there is definetly something more with the Silus Clay character. He kept mentioning how he hasn't seen his brother in 10 years and again he mentioned in a decade, which is when Port Charles went off the air. I'm wondering if he's Caleb? I like how ME is playing the character so mysteriously and cold, which always means there is more then the eye can see.

I may not be first on this thread by any means but i mentioned the Silas reference a couple days ago. My VD fan friend clued me into the name.

There are a couple plus sides to having KA be the SISTER to Lauren Frank: 1) The writers can still get their rocks off pairing Chad Duel and KA, and 2) BY NO MEANS WILL SHE BE AN INTEGRAL PART TO THE SHOW if she is merely a sister to Lauren! This is like, um, the BEST NEWS EVER ??? I honestly don't see KA lasting another year on GH, maybe i'm wrong.

From your post to whatever soap god's ear there may be floating around out there, LOL! I also appreciate the fact that your words have made me smile at the thoughts you've typed out... Innocent

It's funny, my GH friend who i dish with at work, she really didn't totally resent the Starr character like many of us did. But since she's stormed on in this latest incarnation, similar to Lindsey Morgan's grating Kristina, my friend really can't bash KA enough. In other words, she finally has the nerve to list all of KA's shortcomings, and i for one love it! Keep it real i say.

I'm curious to see GH bounce back from this atrocious week; i'm sure it can, or at least will try. That being said, i really don't want Maura West associated with this annoying storyline AT ALL!
