General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Alexis stops Shawn from hitting Franco, and both Sonny and Shawn want her to butt out. Sonny won’t allow Franco to walk around without a care in the world.  Shawn reminds her of what Franco did to Sam.  Alexis doesn't think they should dispense vigilante justice whenever they please. She shouts if they kill Franco, they may end up killing Danny.  
 


Alexis explains they’re testing blood relatives for bone marrow, and Franco, being Jason’s twin, needs to be tested.  Franco points out he hasn’t agreed to be tested, and wants to be asked.  Alexis asks, and Franco agrees.  Sonny still doesn’t understand why Alexis is protecting Franco.  Franco declares he's trying to right some wrongs. 
 
Morgan walks into the exam room, as Brad is saying he’ll tell the first person that walks in about Michael and Kiki. Michael deflects by saying Morgan is only his half brother, and can’t be tested. So, Brad goes along with the ruse, until he’s alone with Michael. Again, Brad threatens to tell people about Michael and Kiki's kiss unless Michael spends the night with him.
 
Silas wants Rafe to move in with him, immediately. Sam wonders why he’s being unreasonable once again.  Sam asks what’s bothering him, and Silas explains he ran into an ex-girlfriend. He goes on to tell Sam how badly things ended between them.  Sam asks what went wrong, but Silas deflects and asks to see Danny.  
 
Britt apologizes to Patrick about the doll, and gives him a new one for Emma.  He wonders why she’s not on bed rest, and Britt tells him she’s feeling better.  Sabrina snarks there probably wasn’t anything wrong with Britt in the first place, and Britt gets angry at the accusation.  She reminds Sabrina all her accusations have been proven wrong, and wonders why Sabrina is still kicking her while she’s down. 
 
Lucy informs Laura they have an investor who’s ready to sign the papers and front the money for Deception.  Laura’s upset Lucy is moving so quickly without her input.  Nikolas arrives as the investor, and Laura doesn’t want him to feel obligated to help her.  Nik believes it’s a good investment.  After he leaves, Lucy and Laura continue to argue until Scotty breaks it up. 
 
Ava gets back to the mansion, and angrily helps herself to a drink.  Tracy wonders why she’s all worked up, and Ava admits she saw an ex-boyfriend. Tracy wonders what Franco has done now, but Ava tells her it isn’t him. She explains how the relationship went down, and confesses to not handling their break up well. Tracy understands, and tells Ava a little bit about her and Luke.  Tracy thinks she and Ava make a good team. Tracy advises Ava to choose whose side she wants to be on.    
 
Britt runs into Nikolas, and explains she’s upset because she loves the father of her baby, but he loves someone else.  Nik understands, as he’s in a similar situation.  Nikolas offers Britt his card, and tells her to call him.  
 
Morgan gives Kiki the necklace.  She thinks he’s gambling again, and wonders where he got the money.  Morgan lies, and says he cashed in a bond.
 
Scotty wonders if Laura is overreacting with Lucy.  Laura admits she’s worried about Luke, because she thinks he’s sick and Tracy was covering.  Scotty offers to talk to Tracy, and reminds Laura today is the anniversary of their first marriage 34 years ago. He vows he’d do anything for her.  Laura apologizes to Lucy. 
 
Scotty stops by to see Tracy.  
 
Alexis takes Franco to the hospital. 
 
Silas examines Danny, who seems okay.  Sam explains it’s her brother Danny’s birthday, and feels sad she couldn’t prevent him from dying. She swears she’ll do better by her son Danny.  Silas assures her Danny will be fine once a donor has been found.   
 
Britt tells Brad he needs to run tests on her to prove she no longer needs to be on bed rest.  Michael overhears her say she helped Brad get his promotion.  When Britt leaves, Michael tells a worried Brad he’ll tell Monica what he overheard, unless Brad backs off.

    I spent the first half of the episode wondering why Michael had forgotten that his grandmother is chief of staff and his adopted father is a killer, both of whom could stomp Brad into the ground (well, Sonny would get Shawn to do it, but you know what I mean!!). but the payoff came with the look on his face when Brad turned the corner and realized Michael had heard the conversation with Britt. Chad nailed that look and made me laugh.

    I’m actually starting to like Nikolas and Britt.

    Tracy and Ava!! Tracy to Ava- I despise you the least.. Loved it!!

    I may be a one-man army when it comes to shipping Sam and Silas, but I’m rooting for them 100%, especially after today because I really felt their famous chemistry. Hopefully, everything perks along in a slow, sweet way. I have faith that once we really come to understand his history we’ll be able to forgive him for being so abrupt selfish. I’ve redeemed meaner characters than him before.

    Tracy and Ava are pure gold! So are Scotty and Tracy, for that matter.

    I FLOVED that Nik and Britt were so smiley and happy to see one another. TC looked very relaxed.

    I liked everything about today’s show.

    Team Britta and Prince Nicholas aka “Brita” for the win! I hope this pairing works out.

    I think Scotty and Tracy were once an item years ago?

    Poor, Princess Sabrina, boo hoo! I hope Britt’s baby turns out to be Patrick just to piss all over Sabrina’s little fairy tale life with Patrick.

    OMG! Brad will flirt with every man in his path. I almost (almost) felt a little sorry for Nik, but decided that maybe the Prince needs a little “Brad” in his life!

    You are not alone, I see the chemistry between them. It is different than their previous chemistry but the spark is still there it just isn’t a burning flame like before. At least not yet. Having him be tender with Sam and then offer to accompany her on her visit to see Heather about donating bone marrow.

    Tracy and Ava were good. I have been wanting Tracy to have a female friend ever since the stuff with Connie from last year.

    I loved seeing a softer side of Britt, too bad it is being wasted on that asshat Nik. I give GH props for tryng out Britt with someone other than Patrick but Nikolas is just a black hole of pure suckiness.
    This show really needs to flip the chess board on a lot of these relationships (I am looking in your direction Patrick/Sabrina) and try some more chem testing situations with different characters.

    I agree on the need for the show to chem test ALL of the characters instead of forcing a couple together. Whatever happened to the days of organic pairings?

    Laugh and rewind line of the day from Britt: “Patrick and his little fritz ball.”

    I wonder if RH has reached that point in daytime stardom where people are afraid to direct him. Somebody needed to reign him in today and nobody did. With all that sputtering through blood and slob thing he was doing. I halfway expected him to say, “I Am Not An Animal!”

    Silas has more chemistry with Ava than Sam. And Alexis’s self righteousness is making me hate her. She knows good and damn well that Shawn would never hit her. You’re too fine for her anyway, Shawn. Mismatch!

    Love all things Britt and Nik.

    I know the GH storylines have been scattered lately; but I’m so excited to see what’s going to happen once these characters get settled/blended with the rest of the cast. GH is becoming home to some real “power-house” soap stars! They’re bringing their A-game to make these stories work!!! (see how they’re slowly getting rid of characters who can’t act i.e. Christina and Connie)??!!

    Even though the Franco character is a mess, big-props to Roger Howarth, the man is trying .. and that’s why I will always love him and watch him in whatever character he plays! :-)

    I’m now starting to see the fireworks between Silas and Sam …. whew, hew!!!! Tracy and Ava Jerome, WOW, perfection. Take notes all you other ‘actors’ (Liz, Carly, Sam, Sabrina) you might just lose your day-job if you don’t step up your skills. (their are other stronger actors waiting to come on board to GH). Is that Michelle Stafford’s phone I hear ringing???? haha

    I’d love to see more Anna, Epiphany, and Diane. I’m sticking with you GH!! Great stuff is on the way :-)

    I think there is something compelling about MWs performances, but like roho, she cant chew the scenery in every scene. I dont think thats necessarily some display of skill that should leave kemo and lauraw quaking in their boots. One thing i give kelly credit for is that she doesnt have to be the center of every scene that she is in – for example the scene where sonny was grieving robin, she was very subtle and yet very effective in what she gave us. Laura – honestly she just rings so much emotion out of anything shes given. I find more and more that watching rogers franco and mauras ava is just one giant battle for which actor is going to out do the other with their theatrics and that takes me out of the scene. The critique i might make is much like harry connick said to the ai contestants last year – that it wasnt about who could do the most runs or hit the biggest note, it was understanding the meaning and emotion in a song and selling that with truthfulness and heart. he complained that the gals were showing what they could do vocally instead of thinking about the performance as a whole and i see that right now with both roho and mw – too much look what i can do and not enough selling me on why i should care about either one of them. Conversely, laura and kelly make me LOVE carly and sam. Michelle staffords phone ringing or not ringing doesnt mean squat to me (and truth be told if she comes on as a q i might just hater her from jump just for being a red head in the q mansion. if they feel they need that, who not just bring back robin christopher who has history with the show).

    Yes I agree that selling a scene with truthfulness and heart is definitely a good way to go that is why I can’t understand why Maura West has to be so over-the-top in most of the scenes she is in. Her face contorts so much that everytime I watch her I keep thinking to myself “for goodness sake pls relax will ya and stop being so over-dramatic”. Roger Howarth & Laura Wright chew scenes too but to a lesser extent than Maura in my opinion.

    Kelly Monaco is capable of brilliant acting e.g. when her babies died (both times even though the 2nd baby was Victor III), the virus storyline when her brother died, when Jason left her after she was shot, just to name a few examples.

    This is one of her best scenes (last part of video):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I75q8BO2Zl8

    I like that she doesn’t choose to go overboard with her portrayal and I feel comfortable watching her and even emotionally moved sometimes especially during scenes like in today’s episode when she was talking about her brother and baby Danny.

    It is amazing how all of a sudden most of the posts are complementing today’s episode. Where are the complainers…I guess it is too early.
    I knew Michael would not fall for that Brad crap and he addressed the whole Monica thing…Tracey addressed the reason why Monica is allowing Franco and Ava to reside at the mansion. A lot of questions that I have been seeing on the board were answered today.

    As for Sabrina and Patrick I still think Sabrina is an attractive actress who just needs a different direction.

    Even the scene between Morgan and Kiki were actually sweet. I am loving Nic and Britt.

    A lot of the haters of this show only post multiple times when TPTB take a little turn. PJC2777, prettyflower10001, Yoryla, IOWAHAWKEYE…these are the ones to look out for.

    I liked parts of this episode and didn’t like others. I liked Tracy and Ava, although I do agree that Ava can chew some scenery. And why is that woman always licking her lips? Someone get that woman a glass of water or something.

    I liked Michael getting one up on Brad (who is gross), but I still can’t stand KA and don’t want Michael with Kiki. I also hope that Morgan grows a brain at some point because kids usually get smarter as they get older, not dumber. Little Morgan was kind, considerate and smart. College Morgan is an douchey moron. I think maybe one of Sonny’s enemies kidnapped Michael and Morgan and performed a personality swap.

    I don’t like Nik and Britt. Yes, I am a Niz fan, but that is not the sole reason I don’t like Britt with Nik. I don’t like it when a couple gets together based on lies. Britt is lying to Nik from the jump about her relationship with Patrick and about her role in all of her mess. She brought on all of her problems and there is no way in hell that baby is Patrick’s or that she accidentally got pregnant. She is lying to Nik and he is too smart for that crap (although he does have a weakness for women in distress – even if it’s of their own doing). I think they do have chemistry, but it is ruined for me by the way Britt is tweaking her version of reality to make her appear to be the victim in all of her drama.

    I thought that Sam and Silas had good chemistry today…and that is from someone who only saw chemistry between Sam and GV’s Lucky and in no other Sam pairing. I also thought it was adorable when little Danny looked like he was trying to kiss Sam’s cheek after she kissed his. That little boy is a star.

    I haven’t been commenting on the board in a few weeks because some of the negativity bothered me. I may be in the minority but I like Roger Howarth and he is trying so hard to bring sympathy to the Franco character, that James Franco, the big movie star, didn’t bring to the role. He just played Franco as a total “pyscho”. Roger has a way , as he did with the Todd character, to make you feel sorry for him and to believe he is trying to right the wrong. It is the same with AJ. As much as they try, their past always comes back to haunt them and though they try to be good, something always happens to push them back to the dark side again. But, how great for RH and SK to be able to play such complicated characters.

    I still see the chemistry between KM and ME. When he put his hand on her shoulder, it was a big thing because he has always been so cold and unfeeling. I predicted Sam would bring out his good side. It’s obvious Kiki will be Silas’s daughter, this way they can continue the Micheal/Kiki relationship. I like KA so much better as Kiki then Starr, and I see the chemistry between her and Micheal.

    I liked the scenes between Alexis/ Sonny/ Shawn and Franco. Nancy and Maurice were giving it their all. I’m sure there are fans that still want the “Mob” thing, so that scene was perfect. I like Nick and Britt (it rhymnes-Ha!). The show may not be perfect but I don’t think any of the other soaps are. I’m sure there are a lot more stories to come, with many revealations. I really like Maura West and liked her and Tracy connecting as women with their men problems. Rumours are that Michelle Stafford will soon be joining GH. She is another STRONG actress that chews up the scenery. I’m not sure how good she will be for GH. With Carly, Ava, Tracy, and Anna, there are already too many strong actresses on the show. Will wait and see what happens.

    I really think this is unnecessary. I don’t consider anyone to be a “hater”. As with all soaps, there are good days and bad days, sometimes there is a episode that you like, others you don’t.

    Now…I was okay with this episode. I am still near the end of my rope as I am finding less and less to enjoy, but here is what I did enjoy and am looking forward to.

    Britt and Nik – I am not a fan of Britt (for the same reasons that I don’t like Sabrina), but I am a fan of Nik. I am not looking forward to another jealous Liz, so I am watching with some trepidation. I actually saw a genuine Britt when she was with Nik. Go fig.

    I am a fan of MW and I love her in scenes with TE.

    I love seeing Laura on the show and the scenes with her and Lucy were most definitely refreshing.

    I loved Sam calling Silas out on being upset today, I also liked her mentioning her brother to him. I would like for Silas to find out that Sam has already buried a daughter, and that she thought Danny was dead and didn’t have him due to a baby switch for the first 6 months or so of his life. I want Silas to soften towards Sam more, then perhaps he will soften towards others. I also want his backstory, I was intrigued when he beat feet out of Kellys the other day when he couldn’t even deal with having coffee with Ava. I just want something to soften him a bit before I will back this pairing, even though I’ve loved them in their two other pairings, especially McBam.

    I liked that Michael got the upper hand with Brad. I was worried we were going to have to deal with another rape scene, I’m so tired of them on GH. No more rapes or dead babies please!

    Britch just looks like her breath smell like booboo. I love her and Nic together though. He’ll turn on her when he finds out what her mother did to Robin though. Then it’ll make him look like a big old hypocrite. Then he’ll leave the show again.

    Loved Alexis in the Sonny / Shawn scene as always NLG delivers esp seeing Franco get his butt whipped if I’m suppose to feel sorry for him it didn’t work.

    Still don’t like Britt she can leave tomorrow and take Sabrina with her as for her with Nik I’m not seeing this chemistry their suppose to have yet. Same said with KiKi and Michael they are bland to me.

    Morgan is a dud but I’m very interested in seeing where his story takes him.

    I find Ava a little scene chewing but again I’m waiting to see where her story takes her. Hopefully Monica will get to say her iconic line “this is my house” I don’t need to hear that from Ava…where’s Monica?

    I’d rather let Shawn beat the crap out of me like he did Franco then to watch this Mob / Sonny ‘storyline’ AGAIN

    we’ve seen it over and over and over and over and over again

    It’s old, it’s washed up, it’s recycled, it’s boring, it’s predictable, it’s stale and it’s a ratings killer

    FAST FORWARD thru it —–>
