General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Alexis warns Shawn the police will heavily investigate the shooting. Shawn wonders if she plans on turning him in. Shawn tells her that he already met with Anna, and she doesn’t have enough evidence.  Alexis mentions Sonny, and suggests he’ll have Shawn killed. However, Shawn believes Sonny will be more furious with someone else. 
 


Shawn asks Alexis again if she plans on turning him in, but she admits she can't. If she does, it will lead the police to Sonny.  Shawn accuses Alexis of being a killer as well, and reminds her of the Kiefer incident. Alexis doesn't think Shawn can compare the two, but Shawn thinks differently.

Carly comes home to find Sonny waiting for her with a gun. He reminds her if Olivia dies, so does she.  Carly is sorry, but Sonny is still angry he let her be part of his inner circle. She went behind his back, and now Franco is still alive and knows they were responsible.  Sonny tells her that she messed up Shawn, as well. He warns it's only a matter of time before Alexis figures things out, and Franco uses his knowledge against them.

Lulu and Dante continue to sit vigil at Olivia’s side.  Lulu’s sorry about her treatment of Olivia when she couldn’t remember.  Both say how much they love Olivia, and beg her to pull through.  Dante is determined to find who did this, even if it’s Sonny.  Lulu mentions others wanted Franco dead, and brings up Carly.  She tells Dante about seeing Sonny and Carly in the hall.  Dante wonders if they were involved together. 
 
Michael is shocked to hear Kiki is actually Lauren, and they are cousins.  Morgan is thrilled to hear his girlfriend and brother are related.   Everyone’s talking, and Franco swears he’s not responsible for the rape, which shocks Morgan.  Michael admits to his brother what happened to him, and Franco’s involvement.  Kiki gets angry Franco was behind the rape. Morgan is upset to learn Kiki knew, and he didn’t.  Morgan wonders why Michael and Kiki are suddenly so close, but Kiki defends Michael. 
 
Rafe and Molly enjoy their kiss. However, when it’s over, Molly admits she wants to be with TJ.  She’s upset TJ seems so interested in Taylor.  Rafe assures her TJ will be back. The two realize this is the end of their evening, and say their goodbyes.  A tearful Molly walks in on a fighting Shawn and Alexis, and runs off to her room.  
 
TJ’s angry at seeing the kiss, and Taylor knows what will make him feel better. She leans in for a kiss.  TJ stops it, but Taylor points out Molly has moved on and he needs to as well.  She shows him a condom, and TJ goes for it.  
 
Sonny stops by to check on Olivia, so Lulu leaves the two men alone.  Sonny tells Dante about the stories from Dante's childhood Olivia would tell him.  Dante asks why he left before, and where he went.  Sonny wonders what Dante is asking, but Dante is determined to capture who did this to his mother.
 
Lulu goes to Carly to apologize for working with Franco on The Haunted Star.  Carly understands, but Lulu pushes the subject. She wonders how upset Carly must be that Franco is still alive.  Carly sends Lulu out, but not before Lulu assures her Dante will find who did this to Olivia.  
 
AJ drags Michael out, and mentions him kissing Kiki.  Michael didn’t know they were cousins.  Kiki tells Michael the kiss never happened. 
 
Franco is intrigued by Morgan. He tells Morgan that Carly and Sonny want Franco dead, but he loves having the upper hand.

    again, Franco is an awful character and no amount Todd-ian/Todd-ism or acting like quips and “rape tapes” can save or redeem him.

    what a waste to have brought in Roger Howard as this re-cast.

    Teen scene…Taylor, girl, slow down. Rafe and Molly…EW! If Molly is still so into Tj, why is she letting another guy kiss her, and Rafe full well knows Molly is still into TJ so he’s just pathetic with the woe is me, I have to move now so kiss me. Soon he’ll be throwing lavish parties at Uncle Silas’s and quoting the Great Gatsby.

    Glad Shawn called out Alexis on her hypocrisy…both Sean and Nancy brought it again and saved todays episode.

    Sonny…Sonny..Sonny…Why doesn’t Sonny go and wave his gun at FrankenTodd instead of the mother of his children who he already shot…and over Olivia??? If it were Brenda, maybe I’d buy this, but over Olivia, the broken Ms. Cleo? No, not buying it, this is out of character. Seeing MB try to cry and then watching him yell is redundant, tired and boring. After all the times Carly has perjured herself and covered for Sonny, and he threatens her life over a hit that he initiated…get the entire hell outta here with that.

    And I am supposed to believe that Carly, the same Carly who carried a baseball bat into a room full of menacing mobsters would be intimidated by one of Sonny’s gun toting temper tantrums? To the writers: witch, please!

    Was it just me or did Morgan not appear to give a rats ass about what happened to Michael?

    I wish PP never sued ABC so Todd and Starr could give each other their hair colors back and not pretend to be Franco and Kiki because I’m so over both characters and their stories.

    I love that lil ho Taylor! I just never seen anyone not born in the 1940′s drinking out of a flask.

    Sick and tired of Orphan Rafe and his constant whining. Oh he has to move to another city in NY. He acts like he’s moving to Europe! Molly goes on and on about how much she loves TJ but this is the second time Rafe has kissed her. Sick of Rafe quoting Streetcar named Desire. Yeah yeah he’s a hopeless romantic. But didn’t Stanley rape his wife’s crazy sister? So is this foreshadowing? Molly and Rafe sicken me with their we can’t be together but we really should be together thing. Annoying. Especially Rafe’s hairline. Not to sound evil but he reminds me of Eddie Munster.

    Love Shawn bringing up Alexis killing Keifer. I wish he knew about Luis. I also hate that Alexis said every man she’s been with skirted the law. HELLO what about NED ASHTON! The man you were about to marry but ran out on. Come one writers. Ned and Alexis was a huge story. How can they forget about Ned?

    The whole Quatermaine nonsense just annoys me. Seeing AJ kiss Frodd behind hurts. So they bring up Michael’s rape again and yet that didn’t make AJ snap and kick Frodd out? That should have made AJ realize that he should hook up with Tracy so they can be rid of the guy who got his son raped. Morgan was more mad that Michael told KiKi about the rape before him! Morgan just acts a little too dumb for me. Who goes off to college and get stupid? I remember when him and Molly use to be on the pier doing their school project together.

    Seeing Sonny with that gun should have brought back traumatic memories for Carly. Still trying to understand how Olivia is Sonny’s lifeline. I’m still trying to understand why this trick is still in Port Charles.

    Sonny is blowing hot air and I don’t believe for one second that Carly is intimidated by his tatrum. Her reaction is more of guilt. Believe me, if Olivia did die and Carly thought Sonny would be out to kill her, Carly, in true Spencer form, would take him out first.

    I thought today’s episode was interesting and very well acted. I am however, having a very hard time reconciling all of the horrific things that Franco has done to the court jester that is Frodd. It just doesn’t compute.

    I definitely agree with TEALITA. Thought the episode was good but won’t get my head around the character of Franco being a central focus of the Q family and the show.

    Acting is not the shows problem, story direction and writing is.

    It was just one of the biggest BLUNDERS of CARTOONY thus far.

    But I will say that even though I am nit picking on it, someone will have to pay for shooting Olivia, even if it leads the police to Sonny… who initiated this whole MORONIC “kill franco out in the open with a sniper’s bullet” scheme.

    It just goes to the fact that if the writers want characters to KILL, then they have to be willing to have those same characters pay the price with prison. Otherwise, what makes Carly, Sonny, ALexis, Shawn, Luke, Laura, Dante, Anna, Duke, AJ and Sam ANY BETTER than Franco?!! Sure, I just made a good argument to SHUT UP about Franco being on the show BUT when someone does kill someone we all love HOW can we watch as Dante brings that person to justice when he lets ALL THESE other characters float?! (Just using Dante as an example)

    Without, let’s say, Shawn being discovered by the police as the shooter and being found guilty and going to prison WHAT dramatic weight will the next murder have in this town? It’s like the boy who cries wolf… sooner or later we will all, as fans, just be like “so what” and there goes the drama.

    That’s my gripe… and it can be applied to Franco and everyone else in town.

    Actually, so is Steven Webber, Patrick’s kid brother (Why can’t I remember his name?) and Heather Webber. But I get what you’re saying. I think it might be a GH thing, though, and not necessarily this regime, since characters have been getting away with murder for years. One of the interesting differences with Cartini at OLTL is that pretty much nobody got away with murder (except Marty Saybrooke!). Characters were being sent to Statesville all the time, which was why they were able to do that prison break storyline near the end that affected almost the entire canvas.

    While I think things at GH are better than they have been, I’m still feeling unfulfilled as of late.

    RoHo as Franco, I haven’t been able to embrace it. Which irks me because I am a RoHo fan. The fact we have a story unfolding surrounding Sonny, well, I’m am Sonny’d out! Him being a side piece has been more tolerable than moving him back into the limelight. I may have to tune out until this story passes. His behavior towards Carly doesn’t fit the bill, he’s over acting and his reactions to events are over the top. I mean c’mon, it’s Olivia, her best attributes to acting are chest out, chin up!

    Alexis has had her share of bending the rules to sway her favor, so I can see her and Shawn battling this out without her considering turning him in. She picks messed up men any ways, so this won’t be a stretch and I like them together. She’s tried killing Helena in the past, in fact, didn’t Catherine Bell fall to her death because Alexis rigged a balcony railing to fail?

    I watched primarily for Shawn and Alexis. I saw chemistry. The writing was on point. The acting was on point. The passion was perfect!

    The addition of Franco and the sucking up to Franco has decreased my enjoyment of the Q’s.

    The teens…eh. Rafe needs a kiss before he leaves? Isn’t that like the men that went to war and told the ladies…I might die tomorrow…please don’t let me die a virgin? Molly??? I’m done with her and TJ. She has offered to run away with Rafe and has kissed him twice. How am I supposed to believe that she wants and misses TJ? Taylor?? I have no words.

    Sonny/Carly? whatevs…Sonny will never shoot Carly and I am sick of Sonny waving his gun and not shooting anyone. I think the last person he shot was Robin, right? Anyways…I’m not interested in this.

    TJ, TJ, TJ. Why did they have to end his segment like that? I really like his character and if he did have sex with her ( as the previes imply) I’ll be really disappointed in him. Maybe I’m naive but I like Molly and TJ together. Very sweet, very innocent, and he makes her tolerable. Shawn and Alexis were great! I could feel the chemistry/anger/ disappointment in each other and it felt like a good use of history.

    Love, love, love Shawn calling out hypocrite Alexis! LOVED IT!!

    Hate, hate, hate Taylor. So far she’s nothing but a steamrolling ho. Why, oh WHY, do these pos parents send their out of control daughter to spend the summer with her brother, like he’s gonna fix her? She’s YOUR damn kid, YOU handle her AA meetings and future abortions. UGH.

    So stupid the mini mobster sitting in the dark at Carly’s house with his gun out, then waving it around when she shows up. At the very LEAST, Joss should’ve come in so Carly could rip his face off about brandishing a gun around HER CHILD. But I was daydreaming of Carly jerking the gun out of his hands and saying, “Screw YOU.” and shooting Sonny full of holes.

    But that’s just me….

    I’m completely sick of the teens. Alexis is as much a criminal as Shawn and Sonny.

    Rafe is such a whiny ass. He’s been running around with his mom for years and now a doctor wants him to come live in Manhattan… hello???? Manhattan or Port Charles? The choice is obvious.

    What teenage boy is going to resist a gorgeous young woman like Taylor offering her services? Perhaps a klan member but I can’t imagine a young man like TJ doing that in real life.

    I’m cutting the teens some slack. They are young. They are learning all of the things that most of us learned back when we were teens and young adults. It’s not fair to judge them through adult eyes. Besides, how many times have we seen grown adults on soaps do exactly what TJ did? Carly and AJ are the most recent example. Sleeping with the wrong people is a plot device that has always been used on soaps.

    Molly is attracted to two guys for different reasons. That’s not so unusual. Neither is a young woman on the prowl, like Taylor. Rafe has only had eyes for Molly since he first saw her, so wanting a kiss before he leaves FOREVER (not really, as we know) is a realistic situation.

    I started watching soaps when I was in my teens and those storylines back then were crazy and hard to relate to for me. What’s happening on GH right now sounds a lot closer to what the teens in my family are going through than I did back then.

    My goodness Taylor, Taylor Taylor it is all about girlfriend Taylor. She is the new fascinating character on GH for me. That girl is a SLUT….She actually carries a condom around with her!!! I agree with Molly there is something about Taylor that does not seat well. TJ is a teenage boy whom if memory serves me correct has been trying to do the deed with Molly from the start. I think Taylor out sizes TJ but they are doing a great job with the teen stories. Molly will not stay with Rafe he is boring. That boy needs to run out the closet but I have a feeling Rafe will be teaming up with Taylor to permanently break Molly and TJ apart. Rafe being all sweet now will not last. I don’t remember the Barrington’s being this wimpy.

    I loved the episode. I think Sonny should tell Dante the truth and let him go after Carly. I think Carly will be getting involved with Franco to keep her from going down.

    Lauren is NOT a Quartermaine heir. I still think Franco will be but not the way people would want. And there probably still is a Q heir out there. I think with the fact that Bradford will be recurring they should invovle Ellie in another story. Fans love Ellie and i still say they should make her the Q heiress.

    Maybe its just me but I am totally sick ,this time around of the OLTL cast eating the show.
    I loved that Shawn did tell Alexis to get off her high horse,and release she has done everything he has and more. For her to say she was an officer of the court, my head is still spinning? I thought she forgot that. She has broken so many laws ,hey Alexis remember when Zander told you Sonny had AJ on hooks trying to get him to drink. Threatening to just kill him. Telling him his family already thought he was dead in a dui? Then you forgot all about the officer of the court, and filed the coerced papers anyway. Then you told Zander to find a new job Sonny wasn’t someone he should be working for. SAID SONNYS LAWYER. didn’t she go home then and make Kristina?
    Sorry but Franco is so evil, and RoHo with that smirk,. makes me gag. I do not find the man funny. Francotodd needs to be put away. I hate that AJ and Tracy will kowtow to the man who hurt so many people, .When will Tracy and AJ get together and just save ELQ? FrankenRon are killing the show. Wash rinse and repeat, OLTL that is.

    I TOTALLY AGREE. I find Franco unwatchable. It is hard to watch what is going on while throwing up into my mouth. I don’t know of another character in the history of the show, and I have been watching since 1963, that I have found more repulsive. Franco is irredeemable. He should never have been created. I enjoyed Roger Howarth as Todd while he was on GH as he was a source of comic relief. There is nothing comical about Franco. There is nothing Franco can do to make me like him. He’s sleazy and slimy and totally untrustworthy and he comes by it all from his crazy mother, Heather Webber.

    Liked the Alexis/Shawn scenes…NLG was great as usual but it was nice to see Sean Blakemore have a chance to show his acting chops.

    I like Taylor, every teen scene needs a bad girl and she is just a trip ad a half. I am sure we will find out that her horrible personality and slutacious ways are due to her parents loving Felix more than her or something typically soapy. Plus anyone who is there to call out Molly’s nonsense is OK in my book.

    Morgan is just awful and I am ready for him to go back to school far away from Port Charles.

    I actually see more chemistry between Kiki and Michael than I ever saw between Starr and Michael.

    I officially don’t care about this fight for ELQ anymore and just want the whole thing over ASAP.

    I agree with you that someone has to pay for Olivia’s shooting but I don’t think that it automatically means that any of the parties involved should go to jail. As long as Shawn, Sonny and Carly are made to pay in some way (Shawn losing Alexis as a lover and TJ’s respect and admiration; Sonny and Dante having a total falling out) then the scales will be balanced for me because if every soap character was made to pay a legal penalty for his other crimes and misdeeds then every show would be populated with Pollyanna characters like Sabrina and Molly.

    AND THE ONLY reason Steve Webber is in prison is solely because they didn’t need the character any longer.

    Most of the characters released from STATESVILLE were never introduced under this regime but they let them out. LOL

    I know… its nitpicking and a drama but just like when they kill a character and SAY it will give us story, so would seeing the likes of Alexis or Shawn or Carly OR EVEN Sonny go to prison for crimes they commit. It could also be something NEW that soaps BARELY try but that OZ proven could work and that’s prison drama… DON’T mention Michael because for some reason Jason was able to get in and babysit him and then GET out at the same time like prison is an ALL INCLUSIVE resort.

    We will see.

    The conversations between Shawn/Alexis and Carly/Sonny were fabulous. Alexis- I love her.. However there have times in this show when I have hated her. Trying to control Sam early on and when she ran over Kiefer another time. Everytime it just showed how hypocritical she can be. Most of the time I love that girl though. Especilly with my Davis clan. So I liked the moral back and forth between them. It was honest. I also enjoyed Carly getting a lecture from Sonny. For different reasons though. In the past this is the point that Jason would have been sheltering her. She would always do crazy stuff and Jason would be there to protect her and validate her. So I am going to enjoy seeing how she navigates this solo.

    I think the difference with watching teens nowadays and “back in the day” is that back in MY day, the youngsters weren’t ever really that young…Vincent Irizzary wasn’t 16, Peter Reckell wasn’t 16, Jon Hensley wasn’t 16, Grant Aleksander wasn’t 16, Stephen Nichols wasn’t 16, Charles Flohe (Grant) wasn’t 16, and most definitely Anthony Geary wasn’t 16 — he was twice that! These leading men carried the youth storylines and were all in their early 20s — much more edgier and interesting imo. (If i’m wrong about any of these numbers, i’m sure JBJ will jump in with the correct stats! :) ) I’m sure there are some exceptions to this (one being Melissa Reeves who debuted at 18 years old as SORASed Jennifer Rose), but you get my point. Nowadays, courting the teen demographic, they just assume that teens only want to see OTHER TEENS. In my book, NOT TRUE.

    It took 1 full train ride to get thru 3 eps of GH, it’s really bad nowadays. And as pjc stated, it’s not the acting. It’s the the writing and the overall storylines. It’s all pretty tiresome and no arc seems to be longer than 3 months. Out of the past 4-6 eps i’ve seen, the only thing slightly enjoyable has been the Taylor and Britt scenes, and of course Jane Eliot.
