General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Olivia ends up taking the bullet meant for Franco. Shawn can't believe what just happened. Carly stands around looking guilty, while Franco calls the paramedics. Sonny tries to stop the bleeding.  Carly claims not to know what happened, but Franco quickly figures someone was trying to kill one of them.  
 


Emma has a fun time putting makeup on Duke, and asks him to put on a tutu.   Duke tells Anna that Emma reminds him of Robin.  Anna gets the call about the shooting, and heads out.  Duke and Emma dance the tango dressed in tutus.   
 
Patrick and Sabrina kiss, and share cupcakes for dessert.  Sabrina sees his wedding photo with Robin.  Patrick wants her to spend the night, but Sabrina points out he shared his life with Robin here.  Patrick tells her Robin made him a DVD when she thought she was dying, and told him to find the right person. He wants to be with Sabrina.
 
Lulu and Dante spend time together until he gets called away for the shooting.  Lulu calls Maxie to come over and eat Chinese with her.  Maxie complains about how huge she’s getting.  Lulu can’t wait to see who the baby looks like.  
 
AJ visits Liz, and the two discuss Michael.  AJ believes Franco is trying to make amends.  He explains about everyone staying at the house, and his need to get out of there.  Liz tells him Danny is in the hospital, and AJ realizes it reminds her of Jake.   AJ heads off to see Danny.  
 
Nikolas sits with Alexis while she waits to hear about Danny.  She tells him about Shawn, and how he works for Sonny.  Nik accuses her of following a pattern when it comes to men, but Alexis swears Shawn isn’t like that.  
 
Anna and Dante get to the scene, and Dante is upset to see his mother is the victim.  Both Sonny and Connie tell him to stay behind and find out who did it, while they go with Olivia to the hospital.  
 
Carly explains to Anna she was dining with Franco when the shooting happened. She didn’t see the shooter.  Franco admits he saw a glint of light, and points to the window where it came from.
 
Shawn returns to the hospital, and Alexis introduces him to Nikolas.  Nik heads off to check on Sam, and Alexis wants to know what Shawn’s job was.  Shawn mentions they had an unspoken agreement not to discuss his work for Sonny, but Alexis wants to know now. 
 
AJ and Nik run into each other.  Nik tells AJ he has the recording of AJ admitting to Tracy he slept with Carly.  He won’t tell Liz.  AJ wants Nik to destroy the tape, or give it to him.  Nik calls the tape his insurance policy. 
 
Olivia is brought into the hospital and stabilized. She's being prepped for surgery.  Sonny tells Olivia she’s strong, and will get through this.  Connie overhears him say he needs Olivia in his life.  
 
Anna and Dante check out the room where Shawn shot Olivia. Anna finds a shell casing, and asks Carly for the security footage.   
 
Carly calls Shawn and asks what happened.  She tells him to find out about Olivia’s condition.  Franco tells Carly he knows who was responsible.

    Loved, loved, loved the Maxie/Lulu scenes. I was worried that she had called Milo to join her so I was glad to see Maxie. Also, now that they’ve pulled out the big baby pillow, they can’t go back to the small one.

    Loved, loved, loved Emma/Duke.

    Loved Alexis/Nik.

    Hated the Sabrina/Patrick.

    I’m not rolling along on the Sabrina hate train, but I can say, she and Patrick really gross me out. She seems like she fits more in story with Michael and Morgan, and not with the grown up Patrick.

    Duke and Emma were SOOO CUTE! The little girl who plays Emma is one of the cutest kids they’ve had on this show since Jake and the first Cameron, I hope like Liz’s kids she never gets SORAS’d.

    Loved TC’s haircut and his star trek shirt, he looks SO GOOD, Liz needs to forget about Aj and get her some of that prince loving! When Sam is on again, I hope we get to see Nik supporting her, it’s nice to see the Davis girls but some Cassadine bonding would be cool as well.

    I know it wasn’t meant to be funny, but I laughed when Olivia was on the stretcher with a bullet in her chest and Dante tells the paramedics to stop, instead of wanting her to get in the ambulance and to GH right away.

    Patrick and Sabrina…meh, don’t really care for them, but it’s nice to see a happy couple on the show since they hardly show Mac/Felicia. I’ll take Patrick/Sabrina over Morgan and Lauren in their towels any day.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that somebody is finally going to lay the smack-down on Carly. That look on her face when Sony says if Olivia dies, you (Carly) die, priceless! So many years of her inserting herself into people’s business and acting like THE mob-queen finally coming to an end. We know, and I’m sure even Sony knows he won’t kill her, he’s just that mad and will FINALLY, hopefully put her in her place.

    Now, is it just me, or is anyone else seeing the Olivia/Sony/Connie triangle as GH’s version of Kendall/Ryan/Greenlee????

    Loved the Maxie/Lulu scenes also. She’s now the real Lulu to me. And Christopher Tyler …smoking hot!!! I prefer to see him with a grown-woman on the show, Liz is too whinny/poor me little girl (sorry to offend Liz fans). Oh, and I loved the Felix and Brit scenes yesterday! It’s rare to see a character go-off and tell it like it T-I-IS! :-)

    Sorry, but this story irks me in that if Carly has to pay for the crime. OTHERWISE, how can any fan think that a character will get his or her comeuppance if every time someone does an evil deed they get off?!

    Yes, we just had Franco do the unthinkable but now Carly has caused Dante’s mother extreme harm so he can’t turn a blind eye.

    But I actually liked the drama today.

    Duke and Emma were just tutu cute. He looks great in pink! :)

    Dare I hope that all those Robin mentions were anvils?

    I hear people say all the time that Carly may be a bitch, but at least she “owns” who she is. Well, she didn’t own anything today. She looked like she just wanted to slither away unnoticed. Anyway, Shawn should have known better than to go forward without hearing it from Sonny himself.

    LOL! That Star Trek shirt was too funny. As for his hair, they need to do a better job at disguising his hair loss issues. Still, he and Liz have so much more chemistry than Liz/A.J.

    I enjoyed the Duke/Emma scenes, too. Seeing Ian Buchanan wearing more rouge than Ronald Reagan just made me smile.

    I actually enjoyed the Patrick/Sabrina scenes today. Their kisses were hot (she looks like a great kisser), and I do see them as a viable couple. Until Robin comes back, anyway.

    I’m glad Olivia’s not going to die, and although I hated how stupid the hitman scenes were, I’m looking forward to Alexis peeling away the onion that is Shawn, until she realizes can no longer be with a hitman.

    All of the Quiz hotness since Nik showed up in town has been toned way down. Boo! Liz and AJ act like BFF’s more than a potential couple. GRrrr..

    Emma is so adorable.

    Sorry, Patrick looked like he was kissing his teenage daughter.

    I feel like this is the first time Patrick and Sabrina have had a chance at romance and it fizzled.

    Emma equals pure joy. Love her!!!!

    Maxie and Lulu were pure win.

    Carly sucks!

    Anna and Dante work well together.

    Nik’s shirt made me laugh. Elizabeth is so gorgeous. I want her skin.

    I watched this episode twice and I have a feeling I’ll be watching tomorrow’s twice for Sonny’s reaction.

    I know alot of people loved the Duke & Emma (Filler) I may have also if I had not wanted to see more of the reactions from the shooting. Dante, Sonny, Carly & Shawn; I really wanted to get more screen time.

    I’m sure this shooting is a way to propel the story of Olivia and Sonny getting together and possibly Connie becoming “Connie”! Technically Olivia had Sonny first so Connie and Sonny should have never gotten together in the first place.

    I enjoy have Nicholas back; I’m still hoping Lying Game comes back but I like Nicholas back and giving liz a story. AJ and Liz are destined to break up when she hears the tape so I’m wondering who he’ll actually end up with; Will AJ be the one that helps Carly out this situation they end up together?

    I’m assuming Sabrina is a virgin and that come in between Patrick and her having sex or he’ll get called to the hospital to do the surgery.

    I was actually hoping Lulu called Milo; but it made more sense for her to call Maxie now that she has her memory back.

    Good try AJ trying to get Nicholas to destroy the tape; Nicholas isn’t stupid.

    Alexis finally starts to face the fact that she’s been in denial about Shawn ever since she saw him take his clothes off.

    Did Shawn shoot Nicholas? Is that what they’re hinting at?

    Carly is not legally going to pay for the crime but I do think some how this is going to place her in Franco’s orbit possibly through his blackmailing of her and her role in the shooting.

    Loved Emma. Cutest kid on TV. Nice bonding scenes with Maxie & Lulu.

    Sorry Patrick and Sabrina are painful to watch. But there were lots of Robin mentions today–so I hope that portends of her reappearance.

    Could this trauma cause Connie to split again?

    Elizabeth and AJ seem to have lost some of their “heat”. I hope they get it back–I still want to see more of her.

    I don’t hate Roger as Franco–but I hate the hair color. Can it be toned down?

    I know there’s been a lot of negativity about the show lately, but overall I’m enjoying it. I want to see Carly consumed with guilt, it will be interesting to see Sonny play the “innocent” party and I am truly curious about the fate of the babies (Maxie’s & Britt’s).

    For me, somehow GH has to regain some credibility.

    We have seen Dante turn a blind eye every time his father sonny pulls out a gun… even when he shot him at point blank range… without so much as an arrest or going to trial.

    While I will give the show great props for being more entertaining on the drama front this week, I will hit it hard with the pure amateurish way the shooting scenes were shot, the cavalier way that Shawn and Carly acted after an innocent was shot and whether the show can earn back its credibility before it truly turns into a farce.

    Carly has to be found out that she hired Shawn to shoot Franco but the MORON marksman shot Olivia instead. We have seen Sonny walk free because of Dante a million times. We have seen Connie/Kate, Olivia, Alexis, Carly, Michael and the rest of the cast lie through their teeth to Mac, Anna, John and Dante about who committed a crime and the perps to walk free… ALL THE WHILE THE ENTIRE TOWN KNOWS except for the cops WHO ARE FRIENDS WITH EVERYONE.

    I know Franco will never pay for anything… whether or not guilty… but how can we see someone commit a crime now if they don’t pay for it and then not just laugh at the cop trying to solve the crime if consequences are not paid. Sure, have Carly wrecked by guilt but have that guilt cause her to be arrested and put on trial. Do thoughtful maneuvering to get her off and not lazy… we have no witnesses or evidence cause we lost it crap.

    Make me… and I hope some other fans… see that this show can write a crime and then RIGHT a wrong.

    Yeah the Liz/AJ scenes had no heat or anything in it. It was like AJ was a delivery guy just bring Liz something to eat and they decided to have a conversation. It was so bla

    I so wanted to see Nik comfort Liz as she thought of Jake. I wanted to see him hold her and Liz start to feel to comfortable in Nik’s arms and pull back. I just need some Niz dangit! When I saw that Star Trek shirt, first thing I thought of was the Live Long and Prosper hand single. I know where he could stick……

    Patrick and Sabrina was just nasty. When that fool brought her freakin cupcakes, that showed the immaturity of this so called relationship. The man didn’t have one adult snack for the ho? He knew he was bringing her back to unlock that chastity belt so why didn’t he have something prepared? He could have pre bought a Happy Meal with the toys so she could have something to play with.

    BTW, that must be ONE MASSIVE HOTEL in an upstate town that can have a sharpshooter in a room on one side of the hotel SHOOT across the building at the rooftop on the other side. WHo would have thought PORT CHARLES was a vacation/business destination that such a building THAT LARGE would exist.

    LOL

    OH… I even warmed up SLIGHTLY to Franco. (I can’t protest for so long on deaf ears. LOL)

    Am I the only one who noticed that Sean Kenan has begun to lose weight? Although the scene between AJ and Liz were cold he sure did look hot today.

    Tyler also had that dark brooding look today. He has really developed into a fine specimen.

    I desperately want Carly to feel Sonny’s wrath. She is turning out to be perfect for Franco. A lot of people are going to go against Carly when they find out what she did and the only person she will have left to turn to will be Franco.

    I like Olivia, although when Megan was in the role of Kate, we knew that Olivia would eventually hook up with Sonny. That was my one qualm with Olivia. I have said this before and I will say it again we need more men on GH. I hear that we will be getting Serena and Christina Baldwin on the canvas but what about some men? I would actually like to see a Jax like figure enter town to go up against ELQ or even have a new therapist come on board at GH. The show is lacking in the male department. With Spin going off contract we will be down one male. Michael will find Christina but that still leaves too many woman without love interests. Maxie needs a new bad boy. In fact we don’t have enough rebels on the show.

    Shawn is out thanks to Carly. I still think there can be a story for Shawn is they bring TJ’s mother on. But if they do not I do not see the point of having Shawn on canvas, He has no chemistry with Alexis. Speaking of Alexis we need to have Rick Lansing return.

    PERKIE- AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID! Loved the Duke/Emma scenes. That little girl is just so adorable!!!!It’s scenes like this that keep me watching GH, even after some shows at times that can be so cartoony and bad. I love seeing real-life situations played out. Liked Lulu and Maxie pigging out on Chinese food and Maxie looking so pregnant and complaining she can’t wear heels anymore. It’s good to see KS and ER connecting because I know KS and JMB were really close pals.
    I think I will like a Sonny/Olivia/ Connie triangle. Poor Maurice needs more story-line and having two women fighting over him will be fun. I see Carly will already have some involvement with Franco, since she ordered the hit and Franco knows. LW and RH seem to really enjoy working with each other, you can see it in their eyes.

    There wasn’t any romantic chemistry between AJ and Liz in this episode. They seemed more like friends than a couple dating. He didn’t even give her so much as a hug or a peck on the cheek when he left. Bring on Niz and all their hotness now please! On another note, RH looked gorgeous. Her skin is unbelievably perfect.

    Maxie/Lulu was great. The scenes were believable and they had great friendship chemistry. The fortune cookies were a bit corny, but it’s a soap.

    Duke and Emma were great. It brought me back to Duke and Robin when she was little.

    Patrick and Sabrina have zero chemistry. In fact, they have negative chemistry.

    The age difference is really bugging me as they get closer to sleeping together. What was cute before is rapidly becoming cringeworthy.

    Loving Britt lately.

    I’m really enjoying RoHo as Franco (especially now that he seems to have caught on to Carly so quickly); can’t wait til he moves in with the Q’s.

    And I totally agree with what J. Bernard Jones said about the shooting scenes. Better editing could have made them so much better.

    “This is Commander Nicholas Cassadine of the USS Enterprise.” I expected him to be beamed out of his scene with AJ.

    Duke and Emma were too cute. I don’t know if it’s because of Ian Buchanan’s availability or his agreement with the show, but I wish Duke were in an actual story. Most people who’ve been in prison for years suffer from trauma and find it difficult to blend back into society. This could be a realistic wrinkle in his love affair with Anna.

    Shout out to pjc’s post #21. Really only 2 things had me interested in this show today — the Nik & Alexis scenes and Emma,Anna & Duke. Honorable mention was FINALLY RoHo being shoved to the background, but i didn’t think i’d need to wait a whole month to see that :(

    Long term, this could be an interesting wrinkle for Carly…and since i’m enjoying Laura Wright these days i wanna see this play out.

    I may be the only one here, but LLo’s acting prior to the shooting was so stiff and actor-ish, i was praying she’d get shot! “walmart visions” — there’s a good one! :beer:

    I do wanna see how this Alexis/Sean thing unfolds. It was such an “add water. stir” type of romance i can’t see anyone being THAT invested, but since we care about Alexis i wanna see where this goes. Frankly i’m still waiting for them to trim this cast down and it still ain’t happenin…maybe they’re just gonna have the entire cast on recurring??? LOL

    I may be in the minority here but NuLu is still so annoying, but i’m gonna keep trying!

    Being the ballet teacher that I am, I just adored the scenes with IB and BRS and their “Tutu Tango”. And it came om my day to teach my crew of “baby ballerinas” (ages 6 and 7), so I had an even bigger smile planted on my face. Just “tutu” sweet. (Sorry, couldn’t resist. ;) )…

    You know something? TC may be a lovely person off set, but her Sabrina with JT’s Patrick is…just…no…

    I mentioned to a friend that LLo’s Olivia being the one to get shot was kind of a “been there, done that” type of event. I was more concerned for her after the bus crash. This didn’t have the same dramatic impact. Now if Carly had been the one to take the bullet, that would make for any interesting scenario. I know these sequences could easily have gone way over the top in terms of excessive emoting, but curiously, I found just about everybody subdued, almost muted in their reactions. And I found, surprisingly for me, SeBl’s Shawn to be the one that (despite his idiocy in not checking with the mob boss to verify the hit being back on), brought home the actual gravity of what just happened…

    Yeah, AJ is a mess when it comes to making colossal mistakes and self sabotaging himself, but count me as one who would like to see him with a love match that would build him up instead of tear him down. Liz would be a lovely choice, but with the Carly aspect, the sabbotage has already nuked that possibility…

    I am a hard core JMB fan. You all know that. And I also admit that I have not acquired the kind of sophisticated mechanism that many have at their disposal that has helped them to “move on”. As with GF previously, for me, there is something “off”, in the scenes that the recast shared with KS’s Maxie. I see and I hear the scripted dialogue, but it rings hollow and for me, there isn’t that mischievious warmth that tells me these two are best friends, even with the very real deception that hangs over Maxie’s head. The cheerfulness for me, comes off as forced as opposed to spontaneous and genuine, something that was a hallmark of watching Julie perform, whether it was with DZ, AG or anyone else in the GH cast. But that is my “reality” to deal with. You may ask why I continue to watch my favorite pair if I feel this way. Much of it is to support DZ. But I also want to continue to support GH and it’s full company of actors, even when I have difficulties with where the show is at this point in time. And that’s being honest, as is my usual position… 0:)

    What I am most curious to see is how Carly reacts. For years I see her talk herself out of guilt or put the blame on Sonny. Like when Sonny set up Jax and it was the huge it wasn’t really her fault thing. I love me some LW and Carly but she always skates and some how pulls off some moral high ground. Or Dante won’t do anything to her because who else will supervise the Nanny that mothers Joss… :p

    I have never really seen any heat between AJ and Liz so this scene seemed normal to me. I see way more heat between Niz and loved the interantion wit Nic and AJ.. I actually hope to see some more Carly and AJ.. Maybe Sonny turns his back in her and she turns to AJ..

    I use to really want Sonny and Olivia- so I wouldn’t mind seeing some of that..

    Tell it sister! Yeah it’s like we hear the director — “…and…ACTION! (cut to 2 actresses giggling and squirming on sofa)” Sorry it all just seems scripted and i realize ER is working hard to sell “Happy Lulu”, it’s just cloying. UGH

    I also agree about the reaction to the shooting, it was all off. Not sure who directed that ep but i didn’t feel any of it :( But on the bright side, we DID get another shot of Franco’s skinny jeans and pointy shoes! *eyeroll*

    It can’t be underestimated what large shoes ER has to fill. It seemed effortlessly how JMB conveyed tomboy, fashionista and old soul. And as SwanQueen has pointed out before, this Lulu doesn’t have the Spencer edge. :(

    I wish there would be a scene of Sam and Nic with Danny, they’re relation, and I don’t think he’s met Danny yet, unless it’s been off-screen. I don’t much like TC, but I’d bet he’d be much cuter with baby Danny held in his arms. Then Liz can come in and see how fine he looks with a baby in his arms again (and I’m not on Team AJ or Team Nic because well… ya’ll know how I feel about the brothers of old loves bit).

    I don’t care that Olivia got shot. It was one of those, EH things for me. Send her and her cousin back to the b-hood, and I’d be perfectly fine with it. I can’t imagine Dante not calling Lulu right away after finding out his mother got shot. I too, was worried she had called Milo, then when I saw her lighting those candles I was like uh-oh, and then relieved when Maxie came through the door.

    I can’t wrap my head around all the reasons people have for disliking Sabrina, but I do wish they would flesh her character out more beyond Patrick and Britt. We know her mother died when she was young and her father wasn’t the best. I think we need to know more about her and see her interacting beyond the limited scope she’s been in. I had a thought– what if her mother was a victim of Franco’s? Could be an interesting plotpoint to launch Nurse Santiago into another area besides pining for Patrick.

    Of course the major reason most can’t cotton to the character is that we know Robin is alive so we won’t accept Patrick with anyone else.

    I really don’t understand this whole AJ/Liz/Nikolas triangle. Before Nik came back the show was doing a nice job of the slow build with their relationship and SK and RH had a really sweet romantic chemistry but ever since Nikolas was inserted into things the writing for AJ and Liz has been very blah and all of their scenes ave had a distinct fraternal vibe to them.
    As much as I hate the Nikolas character and wish his dad had chucked him into one of the spare freeze chambers on Cassidine Island I am hoping they just throw him and Liz together and let Liz and AJ just be friends.
    I’d be sad that Liz has to be paired with such an insufferable ass as the Douche Prince but at least I could FF all of their scenes.
    And then AJ could be thrown into something with Carly, Ava or even Connie or Britt.

    I agree with your post, except that Liz needs a new man with no connections to Lucky. I’m irritated that RC did not bring on Jimmy Lee Holt’s hunky sons for women in Liz’s age group.

    As for Quiz, the couple was doing the slow build and it’s very obvious that their dynamic changed the second that Nik was tossed back into Liz’s orbit. Quiz is acting more like BFFs each time that I see them versus that sweet kiss that the two shared at the nurses ball or how AJ kept trying to get Liz to give him another chance while at Jake’s.

    If you don’t like a post just skim it.. No need to go after the person posting. No offense PJC but generally I will skim over yours just for the very reason that I am enjoying the show. Sometimes a ton of negative is tedious for me. There is no reason to go after some one just don’t read it if you find it that upsetting… At least PJC cares enough to post. It is an open forum and he is able to post what he wants. To that point so are you but you seem to be trying to start an arguement..

    Thanks IOWA for the call out on my post. Firmly, believe that if soaps go back to the traditional way of telling stories and writing BAD guys, we would see less gUNS and more drama!!

    And for those who thought I was complaining, I wasn’t. I absolutely LOVE Laura Wright! I have been loving her since THE CITY, her days on Guiding Light and came to GH because she moved out West and took the role of Carly.

    I think making Carly the pivot of change to make the story telling of CRIMES more balanced and credible would be fantastic.

    No other actress can convey the indignation over the charges that should be brought against her than Laura Wright as Carly.

    No other actress on GH could believe she has the right to commit murder than LW/Carly.

    AND definitely NO OTHER ACTRESS/character would show the right emotion of pain, anger and sadness than LW/Carly as her life crumbles around her from this one IN HER MIND innocent to save lives decision.

    THIS IS WHAT SOAP OPERA DRAMA I expect. THIS is the drama that would make me rush home to watch. THIS IS THE DRAMA that GH, in my humble opinion, should be showing.

    CINLEE… thank you for the defense with that BULLY. I truly appreciate it. I’ve decided … THANKS TO THE KIND and wonderful ‘private’ emails several other posters have sent me… that I will continue posting the way I have since discovering DAYTIME CONFIDENTIAL.

    I’ve decided those who love to label people like me as haters/complainers are not worth the energy.

    As with most bullies, Cinlee.. and everyone else, let’s ignore them and be happy in the fact we’re better and eventually they will realize NO ONE IS ACTUALLY LISTENING.

    I don’t, as a rule, call out fellow posters. That’s so not my style. But please, ghrulz12 your rudeness coarsens the debate here at DC. It’s one thing to engage in intelligent back and forth, another to tear down others’ views (as well as the poster personally), seemingly just for sport. I may not agree with everything people comment on, but is it too much to expect we treat one another with simple, decent kindness and respect? pjc’s commentary can be intense, but it’s an intensity that demonstrates a sincere care for GH and wanting the best for the show. I’m pretty sure that’s why we all take the time to put our thoughts on the board… 0:)

    [quote=liason4real]I agree with your post, except that Liz needs a new man with no connections to Lucky. I’m irritated that RC did not bring on Jimmy Lee Holt’s hunky sons for women in Liz’s age group.
    As for Quiz, the couple was doing the slow build and it’s very obvious that their dynamic changed the second that Nik was tossed back into Liz’s orbit. Quiz is acting more like BFFs each time that I see them versus that sweet kiss that the two shared at the nurses ball or how AJ kept trying to get Liz to give him another chance while at Jake’s.[/quote]

    I am all for Liz getting the hell away from Nikolas (and even AJ) just to stop the whole dating bothers thing but especially Nik because there is something really sleeve about how that character treats Liz. There is a condescending “you don’t know what’s good for you like I do” vibe I get from Nikolas towards Liz in their scenes.

    AJ and Liz have the most depressing relationship. They’re always talking about some tragedy: Jake’s death, Jason’s Shooting, Michael’s rape or Danny’s possible cancer. It feels like the writers are sucking out all the venom of Liz’s inevitable rant at AJ over his fling with Carly.

    Carly is trying to dodge a murder conspiracy, and AJ will be freaking out about Michael’s burgeoing alcohol problem and his son lusting after Kiki. Liz’s fury should be epic, but it will seem trivial in comparison to AJ’s other problems.
