General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Carly begs Franco to give Danny to her, because he needs to get back to the hospital.  Franco-Jason thinks Evil Franco got to her just like he did with Sam. However, Carly talks to him like he’s Jason, and swears she’d never lie to him. She stresses he can trust her.  
 


Monica is certain Franco wouldn’t hurt Danny if he thinks he’s Jason.  Sam wants to leave to find Danny, but Silas warns she should rest.  Dante arrives, and informs them the police and Carly are out looking for Danny.  Monica’s annoyed Carly is in the picture, but Liz and Sam both think Carly may be able to find Franco in his current warped state of mind. 
 
Laura tells Tracy she knows Tracy wasn’t sick, and Luke was the real patient. She also has the results of the tests. Laura demands Tracy tell her everything. Tracy explains about Helena and the possible connection to Jerry Jacks.  Laura’s angry Tracy let a sick and dying Luke leave on his own, but Tracy tells her that she tried to go with him. Laura decides Luke needs her, and she’s going to find him.  
 
Alexis and Nik get back to Danny’s room, and find him missing. They don't panic, and assume Sam has him somewhere.  They talk about possible donors, and Alexis' anger over not remembering anything about Sam’s father. Nik asks her about the J name, and if it rings any bells. 
 
TJ runs into Taylor, who kisses him.  He breaks it off, and tells her that he just wants them to be friends.  Taylor is angry he’s still hung up on Molly.  She decides she wants a drink, and flirts with a guy to get her one.  As their leaving together, TJ warns the guy she’s underage. The guy leaves, and Taylor gets angry again.  She wonders why TJ doesn’t like her enough. 
 
Molly explains to Rafe the chemo isn’t working for Danny, and no one has been a match yet.  She explains what little they know about Sam’s father.  Rafe asks about the letter J, and the only person Molly can think of is Jerry. However, she feels Alexis would have remembered him.  
 
Molly and Rafe end up at Jake’s, and see TJ and Taylor hugging.  
 
Franco decides to trust Carly, and hands her the baby.  Liz calls, and Carly tells her that she has Danny. Before she can leave, Franco decides he’s going to shoot himself. Carly tells Franco he’s a good person, and shouldn't pull the trigger.  Franco knows he hurts people, and points out he just shot Liz.  Carly tells him that she just spoke to Liz, and she’s fine.  Franco shouts his head hurts, and he wants to end things.  
 
Dante uses Liz’s phone to track Carly down. They discover Franco and Carly are at the bridge. Dante heads out with Sam and Silas in tow.  
 
Monica and Liz get back to Danny’s room, and update Alexis and Nikolas on the current situation.
 
Carly explains to Franco he has a brain tumor that’s causing him pain and confusion, but he has a good heart.  She begs him to put the gun down and not end his life.
 
Dante and the police arrive.  Carly hands the baby to Sam, but begs Dante not to shoot Franco.   She pleads with Franco to trust her, and give her the gun.  Franco wonders if she’s saving him, and then breaks down in tears.

Carly honey, just take the sick baby back to the hospital and let the crazy man shoot himself in the head if that's what he wants. Although, at one point RoHO was pointing the gun at his clavicle, so I don't how much damage that would have actually done.

"Damnit, I've got a headache and now a gunshot wound to my shoulder."

Funny line of the day:
Molly: "Jerry Jacks was a total psychopath"
Rafe: "Another one?"
Molly: "We do have a lot of them"

Good scenes between Laura and Tracy, but I'm not sure just what Laura thinks she'll accomplish, traipsing around the world looking for Luke.

And, is it just me, or were there a lot of anvils today that Jerry could be the J that is Sam's father? He has changed his appearance so it's possible that Alexis wouldn't recognize him as the teenage boy that he once was. But if he was, that would open up Lady Jane, Jax and Joss as possible donors.

"Damnit, I've got a headache and now a gunshot wound to my shoulder.".

I had to rewind to see if I missed something that would explain why Carly would stop Franco from killing himself. At the very least she could have said they need him to test for bone marrow donation so that her sudden show of once run would have made some knd of sense.
The way she was acting it was like Carly had her own brain tumor that was making her think Franco really was Jason.

I enjoyed their scenes too but I was disappointed with how things ended. I was hoping for Tracey to invite herself along on Laura's search for Luke.

I honestly stopped caring about who sam's daddy is once it went from Alexis being frightened to even mention the guy's name to just some teenage one night stand that Alexis barely remembers the details from. This storyline had the potential to be compelling but now it is just so pedestrian that I can barely muster any interest.

Jerry isn't Sam's father. That would mean that Sam was screwing her uncle when she first came to town. Maybe it's Julian Jerome.

You can almost smell that they gonna try to sell us a potential Carly/Franco pairing. I was screaming the entire time, "woman leave him alone, let him shoot himself and be done with it". But no such luck. This awful Franco saga continues and the brain tumor doesn't change a thing for me.
It was a big mistake to bring this character back. And it doesn't matter how many twists and turns RC decides to write for RoHo, it does not work.

I enjoyed Laura's scenes with Tracy. At some point I still hope for that LnL reunion to be honest. Just looking at how things were left between Laura and Luke in 2002, 2006 and 2008, they deserve it.
I'm just not sure if RC should be trusted to write it. Anyway I don't see Laura's marriage to Scotty last that long.

I'd say that the letter J is for Jerome. It's rumored that Sam's father turns out to be Ava's older brother and that they infact are related to the Jerome crime family from the 80s.
I doubt that it's Jerry Jacks and that they are going to tie Sam to a family that isn't really featured on the show regularly.

Otherwise I think the show would be much better if RC would write more character-driven stories instead of all those twists and turns that serve one campy plot after another. In some moments, the show feels just all over the place.
For example: How many times was Little Danny taken from Sam in this one year he's alive? Three, four times!? Danny could already be the most kidnapped kid in soaps...

i wonder if Alexis doesn't remember Sam's baby daddy because she was raped and blocked it out of her memory??

I actually really enjoyed it too Gord, though I was initially too afraid to mention it here. Sad(

I thought Laura Wright was amazing, especially after 3 days of shrieking. Don't really want Laura to be traipsing all around the world--Scotty will not be pleased. I thought Elizabeth was going to think of the bridge, but I guess she's still not allowed to save the day. And sorry to you KeMo fans, but her acting leaves me unaffected.

Alexis remembered her baby daddy when talking to Ric and Anna but now she's forgotten. Anyhoo, if Nik and Liz don't speak to each or give each other sex eyes tomorrow I will be super pissed!

Jerry Jax was in PC back in the late 90's and he was dating Bobbie. Jerry, Bobbie, Jasper Jax, Alexis, Ned, V, Felicia, Mac use to all hang out all the time at the Outback. Alexis would have known who he was when Jax first introduced him to Alexis. Then he had the plastic surgery. Also like what was mentioned, Sam had sex with Jax.

I get why Carly kept Franco alive because bone marrow can only be taken from a donor who is alive. I must say, all that Franco crying or whatever Roger was doing today was horrid.

I hate hate HATE that Laura is running after Luke. Is this TIIC excuse to not show Laura by having her run off to find Luke? I know this has been said555-55550x but Laura needs Stefan, period.

if Jerry Jax is Sam's father, does that mean she comitted incest by banging her uncle Jasper Jax???

i wonder why Molly didn't bring that up.

maybe because as a toddler she wasn't following her big sister's sex life too closely?

Hmmm, J as in...Jeff Webber? That would be interesting. Then Liz and Sam would be half-sisters.

Okay, thank you. I'd forgotten that Alexis knew original recipe Jerry, before he was played by Sebastian.

I just don't like the idea of it being Ava's brother.

But if he has a tumour is he a viable candidate? I thought they said they couldn't use alexis because of her history of lung cancer.

Since when has that stopped soap writers? If you watched Dallas you'll know that Lucy slept with Ray Krebbs (who turned out to be her uncle).

Not all tumors are cancerous. Alexis had malignant lung cancer and is more than likely on medication as a result. Franco's rumor may not be malignant. Remember Jason's brain tumor was also non-cancerous.

Perkie - Tumors don't always equal cancer. A person can have a non-malignant tumor that impacts his health because of where it is (e.g. brain) or because of the size of it. Jason's tumor wasn't cancerous either.

Sam needs to get lojack on Danny pronto. I will admit...I love how many times he has been kidnapped because of all the times Sam's fans ragged on Liz for not keeping an eye on her kids 24/7. It is, however, getting to be too much even for me. Let's wait until the kid is at least 10 before we get another kidnapping, ok?

I would like to see more of Nik and Liz on screen....together. For that matter, it would be nice to see more of AJ and Liz as well. This is the most invisible love triangle I have ever seen.

Did HP dye her hair? It looked really dark.

Franco -IS- a tumor and he's giving all of -US- a headache! ...and -HE'S- complaining he has a headache? He -IS- the headache! He's a like a bloody aneurism that just won't bleed out!

When he's so close to killing himself off, you just want to hear the click and the thump as he hits the ground! Do it, do it you creepy, half assed written mutant of a character, pull the trigger! Ah well, One can dream!

I am surprised Tracy would let Laura go after Luke without her! What gives on that?

Molly has no idea that Sam rode Ric like a pony.

Has Jason ever mentioned the bridge to Carly? I know Robin/Stone, Robin/Jason and Jason/Liz all used to hang out at the bridge.

Hell no to Sam being Dr. Jeff Webber's daughter. Jeez. Is there not one thing on this freaking show that can truly be Liz's as a Hardy/Webber legacy character without trying to cram in Sam?

FrankenToddJason will hopefully be backburned over the next six months. However, I suspect Carly is going to hit it with FrancoToddJason in the next few weeks!

Loved that Laura set off to find Luke. Just wish Tony still wanted to work with Genie in a romantic way for their characters...

It BLOWS my mind that every day i read Perkie's thread it seems to be another day with RoHo/Frodd on...just boggles the mind. Did someone tell me a while back that this guy wasn't lead OR swallowing the show whole? GMAB!

Kinda/sorta want to see the Tracy/Laura scenes...nah, moment has passed.

Ron definitely can't be that creative. It's all one campy plot twist after another. It's the sorta stuff that ruined even mildly interesting characters like porn sisters Messica and Natalie on OLTL. They went thru 2-3 leading men per year!

I can't wait until Roger does Californication. I really hope that means backburner for Franco for a long long time.

I also hope this mean Ava/Tracy team up. Tracy needs a BFF who's just a fly as her.

Can't wait for this silliness to be over. That scene with Dr. Nameoftheweek and Sam was so weak. Normally Sam would have been jumping off the examining table on onto her five inch stilletos to save Danny....well maybe just Jason not his son. Stupid show....she barely showed more emotion than if she tore her favorite jeans. KM usually can do high drama and vulnerability....even she can't believe this craparse story.

Love it! I have been looking for Richard Dean Anderson "Dr. Jeff Webber" during the 50th anniversary!Would love to see those scenes between Monica and him!

I always liked the character Todd and was not watching during the James Franco "Franco Fiasco". I will let them redeem Franco!

I should never read past Perkie's info. All of the comments, are just people bitching about how it isn't the way they would write it. Either watch it and enjoy it or turn it off.
