General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Monica demands to know why Leslie is snooping around the hospital records.  Lesley tells Monica she was checking her email, but quickly changes her story and claims she’s consulting on a case.  Monica continues to press the issue, and Lesley finally admits the truth. She is trying to help a worried Laura find out what is wrong with Luke, because she feels Tracy knows the truth. Monica informs her Tracy’s tests don’t exist.  Lesley begs Monica to understand her need to help her daughter, and asks Monica to look the other way for 2 minutes.  Monica reluctantly agrees.  Lesley gets the information, and thanks Monica for her help.  
 


Morgan questions whether Franco is, in fact, Kiki’s father.  Ava accuses him of eavesdropping, and stresses he should mind his own business.  Morgan tells Ava that Kiki has made her peace with having Franco as a father, and is starting to care for him. He feels she needs to know the truth.  Ava believes if Kiki knew the truth, it would send her into Michael’s arms. Morgan claims Kiki is with him, but Ava suggests he has his reason to keep quiet, as does she.  She feels its best in the long run if Kiki never finds out the truth.
 
Patrick explains Franco has a tumor, but Carly doesn’t believe it.  She appeals to Liz, and mentions Franco's past of taking over the computer system. She believes he likely did it again. She feels Franco lives to mess with everyone, and swears she’ll get the truth out of Franco.   
 
Franco tells Sam he’s Jason, and fought to get back to her.  Sam wants nothing to do with him, so Franco forces a kiss on her.  She breaks it off, and slaps him. Sam warns him that she’ll kill him if he touches her again.  Franco stops her from calling the police.  Sam wants to go and see Danny, but Franco refuses to let her. 
 
Felix finds Michael drinking at Jake’s, and offers to listen to his problems.  They end up talking about Brad, and Michael tells him about Brad’s offer. Felix apologizes for all gay men.  Felix tells Michael the best way to get over a girl is to get another girl, and introduces him to a couple.  
 
Kiki’s looking for Morgan, but finds AJ.  He wants to talk to her about Michael, and mentions he knows what's going on between them. AJ worries about an incest scandal, which upsets Kiki.  She informs him Morgan only knows about the first kiss, and she needs to do damage control.  AJ wonders if she and Morgan are truly meant to be, especially if Michael so easily distracted her.  Kiki assures AJ she cares for Morgan.

Silas finds Danny gone, and the nurse tells him Sam left to find him.  Carly arrives looking for Franco, and tells Silas she believes Franco is faking it. She brings up his history of playing mind games.  Silas informs her Franco took Danny and left. Silas asks Carly where Franco would go if he thought he was Jason.  
 
Sam pulls her gun out of the closet, and warns Franco she’ll kill him.  Franco manages to get the gun from her. 
 
Liz and Patrick talk about Britt and her new friendship with Nikolas.  She wants him to talk to Nikolas, but Patrick doesn’t want to get involved.  
 
Morgan finds Kiki at the house, and proposes.  
 
Silas and Carly get to the penthouse, and find Sam on the floor of the trashed room. Franco is nowhere to be found.

Sam, for the love of pete, shoot the SOB. It doesn't even have to be in the head, do it in the knees, the crotch, the shoulder, anything.

Morgan, what are you thinking? A marriage proposal? Eeesh!!!

Loved the Monica/Lesley scenes.

I cant' tell you the number of times I've carried my kid's birth certificate around in my purse and then took it out to look at it, just for the heck of it.

Ditto Perkie!!! Everything you said is what that is. Great episode though whether Franco is faking or not.

I agree that Sam should have shot Franco. Wouldn't it be more dramatic for Patrick to have to perform brain surgery on a patient with a fresh gunshot wound? I think it would have been more dramatic than the predictable scene on the docks or wherever he's taken Danny. Also, if Franco truly believes he is Jason, it would be cool to see "Jason" dealing with the notion that he has just been shot by his beloved Sam.

I enjoyed the scenes between Michael and Felix! They should become friends out of this, especially after reading the spoilers for next week. Hoo boy! WHAT is going on there!? Laughing out loud

I loved michael and felix as buds too but it underscored the fact that I see felix and sabrina as part of the younger set and not part of the patrick/liz aged set.

It was nice to have Monica on air today. GH more Monica less KiKi and Morgan. I would love to see Monica and Tracy take down Ava.

The Franco as Jason stuff is so ridiculous (especially RH in Jason drag) but I am taking the optimistic approach with this storyline. RH is a favorite of mine and if doing a Jason brain injury redux is what it takes to get this character as far removed from the horrid original run then I am all for it. Hopefully after the surgery he starts calling himself Robert Quartermaine and has no memory of his previous life.

I almost choked on my Vitamin Water when Ava pulled that birth certificate out of her purse..as goofy as it was I guess Ava likes to keep her secrets close to her at all times.

Michael and Felix being friends would be great, it would open Felix up to another portion of the canvas and stop him from being seen as just the Best Gay to the women in town.

Monica and Leslie was just as great as I hoped it would be,

I really liked the AJ/Kiki scenes. It was nice seeing AJ be paternal and actually give good advice. Hopefully he and Kiki can grow closer while they all still think she is a Q, the girl could use a father figure since the one she thinks is her dad is a lunatic and AJ needs to have more friendships in town.

I enjoyed Felix and Michael's conversation.

Yes, Felix, Michael, Sabrina, KikiStarr etc,,, belong in the 21 - 25 age bracket story wise.

Sam the old ride and die chick once again failed to kill Franco in 2010 and now in 2013. Sheesh.

Loved the scenes of Monica and Leslie. I kept waiting on a few of the duo's fight old fight scenes from the 1980's.

What's up with the instant love between Michael and KikiStarr? It's as bad as Nik waking up from his gunshot wound to wax on and on about his great love for Liz which is pure garbage.

So, Ava's been carrying around Kiki's birth certificate in her purse for 21 years. I half expected to see little hearts drawn around the name "Silas Clay."

Great observation I didn't even think about how long she's been hanging on to that birth certificate lol.

Also I'm not old enough to remember Leslie and Monica's history so it was good to get a recap. I'm still not sure why we are even still talking about Luke, He usually doesn't come back until September/October

I also have to add that I loved new Lulu and her spitfire attitude but now she's back to the way the old Lulu was played; boring as hell. Let's get this story up and going; Maxie has been pregnant forever and that vision of Maxie killing Lulu I'm sure it was a metaphor; has the Lulu being pregnant story been dropped or was her flu more pregnancy clues?

The Franco story which I do like is really dragging, I'm hoping that he brain tumor allows people to get over the portrayal of the character by James Franco and all those story line elements will get lost if Franco starts acting like Jason and protecting everybody that hates him.

All in all I like the show but this was not an episode that got me excited. Looking forward to Britt being back on my screen (Wow did I just say that) and more jealous Elizabeth Smile

Your recap did NOT do justice to the soapy goodness that was the Monica and Lesley showdown/truce. A major part of me wishes that they'd add yet another new character for these two to have a nice triangle with, but the cast is bloated enough as it is.

Michael and Felix as friends is nice. The show has so few friends amongst the under 50 set and everyone seems to exist in storyline bubbles. I like when oddly matched characters get to play with each other.

Does anyone know if there's a cause and effect relationship between brain tumors/seizures with excessive peroxide?

Liason4real - I laughed at Sam and her ineffectual stand against Franco. Again?? She faces off with him and fails to shoot? She is not smart. Poor Danny!!! She has a serial killer in her apartment and gives him a gun?! Ride or die? Idiot!!!

Leslie and Monica - for the WIN!!!

I enjoy Michael with Felix. I like when the cast gets mixed around.

As much as I love Maura West, I hate the way GH is becoming the "Maura West Show".

Thank God for the Monica and Leslie scenes. Guess Frank and Ron haven't completely given up on all the vets just yet.

I think It would be great if they used Monica and Lesley much more. Id love to see what happened to Lesley during her years in captivity with the Cassadines told from beginning to recall more things from the past and in flash backs. It would be incredible to see if more presumed dead Port Charles were actually held captive along side her and have Lesley begin to recall who they were. Then have our heroes of Port Charles rescue their loved ones from the Cassadines and Faison. This could have a great impact and involve so much of the cast.

ROFLMAO!!! That's hilarious!!

Cannot express how much I loved the Monica/Lesley scenes.

As for Ava and that birth certificate, that was just for expediency, didn't think anything of it.

As for GH turning into "The Maura West Show," hey, after all the years of complaints about "The Jason/Carly/Sonny Show" and more recent "The Sabrina Santiago Variety Hour" and "The OLTL GH Takeover Caper" I gotta say, I'm loving almost every minute of "The Maura West Show." While she was phenomenal as Carly on ATWT, Ms. West is exposing more layers, more nuance, more range than I think anyone who has followed her career ever expected. I love the way she plays different beats with every single character & actor. She literally walks differently depending on whoever she is playing a scene with; Ava is a chameleon, changing colors for whatever situation she finds herself in and yet there is a through line in every acting choice that underscores and grounds the character. Ava is a true woman of mystery, something I've not scene on soap in many years and Ms. West as Ava is doing almost heroic work from creating a real mother-daughter dynamic with Lauren (after Ms. Aldersen's decades work with Kassie de Paiva) to her dangerous chemistry with Morgan to the instant delicious rivalry with Carly to almost singlehandedly rescuing the character of Silas.

Ms. West is not just gold, she's platinum.

Sam definitely wanted to kill him. That much is clear. I admired her level-head, and the fact that she tried to subdue him, if only for Danny's sake. Besides, RC wrote Carly into this scenario, and it seems obvious to me that SHE will save the day, which annoys me to no end.

Sam will always have that "ride or die" side of her, but she has Danny now. It's perfectly understandable that she would respond in a manner that suits her current lifestyle.

FLOVED Lesley & Monica. More please. Smile

I love Ava's character too, but I agree that she's on a bit too much.

ETA: It sure didn't hurt that Silas rushed to help Sam! Love

That rumor started at DD, so hopefully it's not true. AJ has too many ties to the canvas to just up and dump him. Angry

It was nice to see some Monica/Leslie scenes, although I only hope that there is more in store for these two as I simply hate just being given "scraps" of GH history occasionally.

GH has missed the boat with these two characters on plenty of occasions. In one way, I was a little taken back by Monica's attitude towards Leslie considering that Monica came to Laura's aid when Leslie was trying to remember her past all those years ago after being held captive by the Cassadines. Furthermore, if anyone should have had attitude, it should have been Leslie considering that Monica was all smitten with Rick Webber when he came back a few years back prior to his character being destroyed. Yet, GH missed the boat then as the biggest WTF moment during that time was why Rick and Leslie didn't run into each other's arms considering he moved on because he thought she had died in that accident so many years ago.

In any case, regarding the Franco stuff, I just feel as though there is too much emphasis on this character. It's almost as though this character is being pushed too much. Yes I want more Quartermaines, but it seems like creating a storyline around the Quartermaines now just seems like a little too late. Sorry Franco, but you missed the Quartermaine party about several deaths ago when there really was a Quartermaine family (and not just 2 women with peripheral characters and occasional family members who pop into town).

I'm sure if Sam would've actually shot Franco, she'd be flamed on here for not thinking about what would be in the best interest of her child in case Franco was the only bone marrow match. Good golly. Whatever.

I too liked Silas rushing to get to Sam on the floor after he saw her.

Ava's veneer is starting to crack. Geez, so she's been so calm and collected since hitting PC, but now she's turning into a shrew. Are they going to have her turn crazy and write her off quick? I can't remember reading if she has a long term contract with GH or just a short one. Morgan, geez, he's just another stupid Corinthos thinking with his other head.

Add Monica and original recipe Leslie to the list of people who do against the law snooping against patients. We've got a town full of snoops in GH!

While I don't believe departures until they are confirmed, I can see that both AJ and Shawn could easily be ushered off the show. For AJ, it's easy to make him lose ELQ and Liz (not that he ever had either of them, really). For Shawn, now that he and Alexis are done and TJ is almost an adult, the show can do without him, too.

I think much more could be done with Shawn, but he's been relegated mostly to supporting the teen scene storylines (and a couple of others that don't affect him much as a character). I know a lot of people would miss AJ, but I don't find that he has much chemistry with anyone. The one thing that would have made him more interesting to me is if they had dealt with his panic attacks, and what's behind them. Unfortunately, they always seemed to use them simply to provide an artificial mini-cliffhanger (and an ineffectual one, at that).

If they both stay, I'm happy. If either or both of them go, I just shrug. They would just be two more in the revolving door that just keeps spinning in the soap world.

Sam could have shot Franco in the knee and left his butt screaming in pain before calling 911 for help. By the way, where are the supposed guards that protect Sonny and Jason's family?

None of those exits are confirmed. The SK rumor is on DD by HNY who is known to be reliable, but even he is saying it's "under consideration".

I for one think that the prospect of SK/AJ being fired and/or thought not to be interesting or relevant, especially relevant without Jason, is preposterous and very insulting to the character, to the Quartermaine family, and to the whole history of the show. I really hope this stays as just a rumor.

Don't really care about SB/ Shawn. He has never really been a "GH" character to me in the first place.

I hope its just a rumor that AJ is leaving the show. I really enjoy SK/CD's chemistry as AJ/Michael.

It's not unusual for some soap characters to be bent sideways to make them fit (Yes, I'm looking at you FrankenTodd!), while other characters with legacy ties to the show are sent packing. Angry

I too hope it is only rumor. I love the Relationship between AJ & Michael, and see no reason for him to leave. Also would like to see an Aj & Carly pairing. Like SB but he doesn't have the ties to canvas that AJ has. BTW, what is DD? Somebody point me in that direction please.
