General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

Alexis asks Shawn if he’s the one who shot Olivia. She thinks he took Jason’s place in Sonny’s organization.  Shawn reminds Alexis she never wanted to know what his job was.  Alexis tries to put the pieces together, and realizes Shawn went to the ER that night to check on Olivia due to an overwhelming case of guilt.
 


Shawn claims a lot of people wanted Franco dead, including her. However, Alexis assures him that she doesn’t kill her enemies, but Sonny does.  She insists Shawn give her an answer about Olivia. Shawn caves, and shouts he tried to kill Franco but accidentally shot Olivia instead.  Alexis wonders how it feels to shoot the wrong person, and if he thought of what would happen to TJ.  Shawn is upset he hit the wrong person, just like when he accidentally killed TJ’s father.  
 
Alexis is upset, because so many people depend on Shawn. Shawn tells Alexis that’s why he did it.  He made a judgment call, and was fine with killing Franco.  Alexis reminds him Olivia may die, and asks how he’ll be able to live with that.  Shawn’s hoping for a miracle, and wonders what Alexis will do with this knowledge now.  
 
Morgan recognizes the house as the Quartermaine mansion, and is very confused about why Kiki would live there.  Alice explains Kiki is Franco’s daughter, and a Quartermaine.  Morgan realizes this means Kiki and Michael are cousins, which eases his mind since he walked in on them in towels. Morgan tells Alice he’s Michael’s brother, and she finally recognizes him.  
 
Kiki tells Michael her father is alive, but is a crazy person who wants a relationship with her. She's not interested in having a connection with him at all. Michael tells her about his similar experience with AJ, and swears he’s a better man now. Michael is glad he got to know his father better.  Kiki figures she should give her father a second chance, and decides to go back to the house.  She thanks Michael, and gives him a hug, which turns into the two of them kissing.  Kiki breaks it off. She's upset she kissed her boyfriend’s brother, and storms off. 
 
Tracy wants Franco to side with her, but AJ quickly explains to his brother about Tracy’s bad deeds with the company.  Tracy points the finger at AJ as a possible suspect in Franco’s shooting, and brings up the incident where AJ shot Alan in the back. AJ vows he’s a changed man, who wanted a relationship with his child. He knows Franco can understand how he felt.

AJ thinks Michael can help the shares race by getting close to Kiki. He thinks having the kids be on the same side could help Kiki get closer to Franco.  He mentions Tracy is offering revenge, while he’s offering redemption.  Franco admits to Tracy all he wants is a relationship with his daughter.  Tracy feels Franco should align with her, and secure ELQ’s future for Kiki.  
 
Taylor’s not happy when a distracted TJ wants to check up on Molly.  She wonders if they’re back together. TJ explains Molly asked him back, but he’s not with her because of Taylor.  Taylor’s upset she’s a pity date.  She decides to have her own party, and climbs up the sunroof.  
 
Molly and Rafe spend his last night in the park. He gives her a corsage, and they decide to make the most of their last night and dance together.  Rafe thanks her for being his friend, and asks if he can kiss her.  Taylor spots them from the sunroof, and tells TJ to come up.  He sees them kissing.
 
Kiki gets back to the mansion and runs into AJ, who wants to talk to her about Michael.  Michael calls and informs his father he's upset because he kissed Morgan's girlfriend.  AJ promises to deal with it, but asks Michael to come over and meet his cousin.
 
Alice introduces Morgan to Tracy and Franco.  Franco seems quite taken by Morgan.  Kiki comes in, and is surprised Morgan knows the Quartermaines. Morgan says Michael knows them as well.   Michael arrives, and AJ wants him to meet Kiki.    AJ introduces Michael to Kiki, and Morgan points out they’re cousins.

Alexis, if you don't dump Shawn's sorry butt, I will be seriously pissed.

Taylor, you invited yourself to the prom, knowing TJ still had feelings for Molly. So shut it with your pity party.

Loved the Michael/Kiki reveal at the end. The look of disgust on their faces was priceless. But they can stop kissing anytime now, because that's icking me out.

Still annoyed that Tracy would want anything to do with Franco.

I thought Tracy and Aj would've teamed up against Franco, especially after she found out about Michael's rape and the scenes we saw between her and Monica and then her and Aj. Really disappointed the writers didn't team Aj/Tracy up.

The scenes between Alexis and Shawn were the only thing that made me continue to watch this episode, everything else was really boring. I thought both NLG and SB really brought it!

Teen scene.....meh...but I did like Taylor's flask, it was a nice shade of blue. I wonder if she's going to hop out of the limo and interrupt Rafe/Molly tomorrow lol, she is sort of annoying, but I think I like the character, she's a mini Britt, and Molly is a mini Sabrina

The Michael/Kiki thing grossed me out, I know they weren't aware they share DNA, but especially since I just started watching Y&R again, it's incest overload, and seeing the kissing cousins just upped the ick factor for me.

I'm so tired of T.J. acting like being around this attractive, vivacious black girl is the worst thing that ever happened to him. Maybe now that he spots Molly kissing another guy for the second time, he'll man up and show his date a good time. He DOES look awfully young around her, though. That tux seems to swallow him up.

Here's what I don't get about soap morality. It's OK to date a girl that you grew up in the same house as step-siblings (I'm looking at you Thomas and Hope (B&B) - but you can't date a girl who just found out that she is second cousins with your father?

If they were royals this would be totally kosher.

Sodsince16--Michael and Kiki are first cousins--their fathers are brothers.

I enjoyed this episode--I kept anticipating the reveal and it didn't disappoint. I thought AJ was great today--he displayed appropriate levels of sincerity (when talking to Franco)and desperation(when pleading with Michael to come over).

Franco and AJ do have similar stories--and I like the idea of pursuing redemption. And Tracy has also done some horrible things (messing with the money Alan left) that no one mentions.

Finally some emotion from Sean and Nancy Grahn rocked it today. I even thought Molly and Rafe were cute.

For all of you posters who didn't understand why Alice didn't recognize Morgan, if you had waited and episode it would have all become clear as it did in today's episode. Made perfect sense. Didn't it? I just laugh at all the nit-picking that goes on here. Oh well to each his own.

I guess Michael being that slow to catch on is a result of the brain damage he suffered being shot in the head.

Both AJ and Tracy were absolutely disgusting. I must say though, Cartoony did a good job laying out the similarities between AJ and Toddco in relation to their children.

I agree with everyone who had hoped that this story with Franco would have turned into AJ and Tracey teaming up so that Franco had NO POWER at all in controlling the dynasty of what this show/family calls Edward's legacy.

It would have been smart to write it that AJ realizes that even though he feels that he would be the better CEO for the workers, Tracey is the only one who has the experience to run the place out of it's current situation and into the black. And that he could learn from Tracey. And Tracey could decide that since AJ was standing up for his son, Michael, and that ELQ is about her father's and their family's legacy that she and AJ could work together with her as CEO and AJ as President.

We could still get all the sniping and bickering and all the GREAT Q humor but we could clip Franco off at the knees and end that character's reign. Sadly we won't but a boy can dream. LOL

Personally, I don't see the attraction between Michael and Kiki (and for that matter Kiki with Morgan). Sure, the actors are a couple in real life... not Michael and morgan, mind ya but Kristen & Chad. LOL... but their chemistry on screen is lackluster. Now that they are cousins... FIRST COUSINS... their attraction should be over, especially since they don't live in the backwoods of appalachia in the 1800s.

I'm stoked that Alexis has a small story besides a shoulder story for Sam or Molly or her insipid daughter Kristina. But now that Alexis knows about what Shawn did it's her duty both as a lawyer and then to her character's integrity to report what she knows. That could be a truly dynamic story and Diane could easily argue in court that her testimony was a conversation sealed by Lawyer/client confidentiality even if it was one between lovers. I'd believe that scenario for why he doesn't go to prison.

Oh... I can't believe that kiki would want to give her father a second chance, either! I mean, so what that her mother is a bitch, but not only did she save/protect her from her psycho father BUT the entire town hates him, have told her what he has done and I am sure the newspaper rag of GC has printed how this man is back and his evil doings. Plus he is out on bail so that should also prove STAY AWAY from the psycho!!

But it is entertaining even if I nitpick at stuff I have no control over. 37 minutes is nothing these days.

Maybe I'm not quite remembering the story correctly and if I'm not please correct me, but didn't Alexis try to kill someone considered a menace once? And didn't that result in the wrong person being near fatally injured? If so... she really needs to get off her high horse. She's willing to take the law into her own hands when it affects her and yet has situational amnesia about it when it comes to judging others for the same thing.

It isn't believable that AJ and Tracy would rather beat each other than leave Franco powerless. That feels like a plot point and while I don't mind the story, you can see the seams.

Yes, Alexis killed Luis Alcazar.

Great episode, loved the slow build to the reveal that Kiki is the missing heiress. If I were in the situation that Michael is in, why would I assume that my brother's girlfriend's long-lost rich family were the same as mine? I'm sure there are other wealthy clans in Port Charles, like the Barringtons.

Thankful that IN GENERAL (capitalized for the nitpick responses to follow) the characters use their brains and figure things out. In an alternate universe, Alexis would have no idea Shaun was the shooter, TJ would get Taylor pregnant without ever talking to Molly and most character backstory would be forgotten.

My favorite line of the day (that should definitely be explored more) was when Shaun told Alexis that it was "thanks to people like her" that people like Franco are free. Alexis is well aware of what Sonny and Jason did, so I think she is at the very least morally culpable in their crimes, even if she's protected by attorney client privelege.

Also attempted to murder Helena via a parapet at Windemere rigged to give way when leaned upon by her target. The plan (with Luke)was to lure Helena up there in an argument and back her against it but poor (not really) Katherine Bell took the fall instead.

We need more ALICE. The Dominator is an absolute treasure. Rafe is starting to grow on me more and more. Love those pink cheeks!

Great episode

The Alexis/Sean scenes were wonderful! Great acting from great actors!

I don't care for the character of Taylor, but I think that's the purpose of this character and the actress is doing a good job. The teen scene is really good right now. It's just a variation on every other love triangle/quadrangle out there. It's harmless fun and the teens are good actors.

Carlivati is going to get us good I tell you...I m pretty positive it will be revealed that Kiki isn't who we think she is and her and Michael are not cousins. I just see it happening.

For whoever suggested that Tracy and AJ team up against Franco, I think that is a great plan. Wish this would actually happen!

Also, whoever mentioned the Barrington Family...I am ALL for bringing back the Barringtons! ALL for it! Just wish they wouldn't have killed off Allison-loved her so much! Sigh...

Wow! Alexis' rants/judgments against Shawn were filled with hypocrisy!! She vindictively went after Luis Alcazar after sister was killed, let other people take the fall (but represent them in court) ... then didn't she FAKE some type of mental illness where she didn't know what she was doing ???? !!! And not to mention attempting to kill Helena. And blackmailing deans to get her daughter in Yale. This is why I do not like the character Alexis, such a hypocrite.

And I don't like her with Shawn either. To me it looks like NANCY LEE GRAHN was "trying to hard" to make a connection with him. From the beginning of this pairing she just looked to frigid when she was with him.

Shawn is too much man for Nancy/Alexis period! she can't handle it. Pair Shawn with someone that has passion, fire.... Olivia, Carly (maybe even Brit). Shawn with one of these ladies will bring the sexy back, hot, hot, hot! love in the afternoon. Remember when we had "love in the afternoon" with our soaps??? Smile

Meh, I like Taylor. She's a whole lot more fun to be around than that uptight, holier than thou Molly Lansing. I almost fell asleep watching Molly/Rafe scenes, they are making those too so "perfect" that they just aren't fun to watch.

Let's not forget how Alexis ran down Keifer with her car not too long ago either. But, she doesn't want a "Jason" as the man in her life, so I have no problem with her reaming Sean out about being a hitman. She can dump his butt and move on to someone else now.... hum... it's about time Sam's father came to town... they're going to be wanting to test people's bone marrow soon, and it would be a better story to have Sam's father save her son rather than someone like Franco.

I've been saying it all along, and I still think to this day that it's going to turn out that Franco is actually Heather's son and not Susan's. That will open it back up to Michael and Lauren not being related, even though I don't see any chemistry between the two characters, no matter who they're playing. If they're really dating in real life, they must really want to save their chemistry for off the screen.

Molly's dress was a pretty shade of blue. I personally have never known any teenager (much less anyone under the age of 45) who actually has a flask. I don't care for Taylor at all, we already have Morgan and Lauren/Kiki being brats, we didn't need another.

This is 100% what's going to happen. This Franco played by RH will turn out to be Heather's son.

But Alexis may not report it herself based on the lawyer/client confidentiality. Im thinking she is going to represent Shawn and probably convince him to turn himself in

Sean is not too much man for Alexis to handle. I loved their scenes yesterday and I'm not writing their relationship off so soon. Relationships are complicated and this one is no exception. Alexis is obviously upset, but she will have to evaluate her own doings over the years and see that she is flawed as well. Either way, NLG can act her ass off! I've loved her since she was on Santa Barbara.

I like her and Sean together, personally. Maybe she'll marry him so she can keep the secret(Drunk.... You never know!?!?!

So does that mean Ellie will never be the Q heiress??? *SIGH*

Loved Taylor she is the new Brenda and it is fun to watch her. The look on TJ's face was priceless. I like Rafe a lot but he is too nice and I can see Taylor going in for the kill.

People please, many of you never liked the idea of Shawn and Alexis and this was the first time they actually had chemistry??? When they are about to break up. Was it me or did I feel uncomfortable with NLG going in on SB like that. There was a bit of racial discourse in that scene that made me very uncomfortable. It felt as though Alexis was talking to a child not a grown man. She would never use that kind of dialogue with Rick or Sonny. It was hard to watch at times it was just intense. I think NLG is thrilled that she will not have to be involved with this actor in a love story again. I think they should really bring Victoria Rowell in as TJ's mom. We need a black female Carly on the show. Dynasty had Dominique and GH needs someone with that fire and wealth. Dara Jensen would of been great to have for Shawn.

I THINK MOST FANS WOULD OF LOVED IT IF DARA JENSEN WAS IN THIS STORY LINE WITH SHAWN RATHER THAN ALEXIS.PLEASE LOOK UP DARA JENSEN AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ALL THINK.

To all those who think Franco is Heather's son and not a Quartermaine, who are you supposing is the father? Does he know he's Heather's son or does he think he's Jason's twin?

Do you think there never was a Jason twin?

Come on! Someone has to take the fall for violence!

I'm nitpicking but it's such a waste to watch crimes when no one pays for them.

I am enjoying Morgan over the last two days. His reactions to being relieved and 'happy' that Lauren and Michael are related, knowing they like each other, are cracking me up.

NLG didn't chose the dialogue. That comes from the writers. Why would you say she is thrilled to not have a love story with him again??

Anyone else as skeeved out by AJ and Tracy bending over backwards to suck up to Franco? It is especially stomach churning for AJ to be doing it. I'd have preferred AJ just give up on ELQ before begging for favors from the scumbag that orchestrated his son's rape. And roping Michael into it makes no sense.
I started out loving this fight for ELQ but honestly I am sick of the entire thing and just want it over.

So sad that AJ is having to beg the man who helped get his son raped for his shares in ELQ.

Why can't AJ just start his own business?

I thought Nik was Tracy's business partner, where is he?

This is just sickening to watch.

For the first time ever, Alexis/Shawn had chemistry

Did they ever even do a DNA test? Or did they just take Heather's word?
