HomeTVGeneral HospitalGeneral Hospital: Perkie’s Observations Perkie July 23, 2013 General Hospital, TV Recap 26 Comments Franco believes he’s Jason, and heads to the bridge with Danny. There, he imagines Liz arriving to help him, but Evil Franco shows up and grabs Liz. Franco-Jason shoots, but the bullet hits Liz in the stomach. Evil Franco doesn't bat an eyelash, and throws her in the water. Sam regains consciousness, and tells Silas and Carly what happened. She needs to find Franco, and wants to go after him. However, Silas wants her to go to the hospital, and get her wound checked. Dante and a few officers arrive, and he promises to put out an APB on Franco. Carly tells Sam she’ll find Danny, and thinks she should let Silas help her. Silas takes Sam to the hospital, while Dante tries to keep Carly at the penthouse. Carly knows where Franco would go, and sneaks off when Dante’s not looking. Michael and Penny play pool. He imagines Kiki, and kisses Penny. She asks if he wants to leave, but Michael needs to get to work early. Penny realizes he’s not over another girl. Kiki is shocked when Morgan proposes, and wonders if it’s about what happened with Michael. Morgan cares about her, and doesn’t want to lose her. Kiki argues they’re too young, and haven't finished their education. Morgan wonders if she no longer wants to be with him. Monica tells Tracy she knows Luke was the one to have the tests, and is aware Tracy was covering for him. She’s about to warn Tracy of something, when she gets called back to the hospital. Ava tells AJ that Franco had a seizure, but he’s alive. AJ comments Franco dying would put a crimp in her plans. When Tracy enters the room, AJ tells her about Ava’s plan to take over ELQ by pitting them against each other, and using Kiki and Franco’s shares. Lesley gives Laura the results of Luke’s tests, and explains about the poisoning. She also mentions Luke refused treatment. Laura realizes Luke has gone off to die, and Tracy knows more than she’s telling. Lesley points out Luke didn’t want her to know, and reminds her Scotty isn’t happy. Laura can’t let Luke die alone, because their kids need him. Laura decides to confront Tracy. Morgan and Kiki announce to a shocked AJ, Ava and Tracy they’re getting married. Tracy wonders if Kiki is pregnant, but they reassure everyone she isn't. AJ and Ava question Kiki and Morgan, respectively. Morgan wants to make sure Kiki is his; before Michael finds out they aren’t cousins. He’s certain the truth will come out soon. AJ calls Michael, and tells him about the engagement. AJ advises Michael to get over Kiki once and for all. Michael decides to invite Penny back to his place. Silas and Liz are patching up Sam, when Monica enters the room. Sam explains Franco believes he’s Jason, and Silas chimes in the tumor could be making him think he's Jason. Sam feels it’s all a game. Evil Franco continues to taunt Franco-Jason. He goes on and on about not having what Jason had growing up, and finding out Jason threw it all away for a life of crime. Evil Franco decrees the cycle of pain needs to end, and Danny must be sacrificed. Franco-Jason holds Danny over the water, and says he doesn’t want this life for him. Carly arrives to stop him. 26 Responses Perkie July 23, 2013 Please, please make this horrible Franco stuff stop. I just can’t anymore. The only good thing during his scenes that I spent most of it watching baby Danny. At one point he was playing with the keys, then he cried and I’ll give RoHo credit for trying to calm him down while continuing with the scene. Then at one point Danny was picking his nose! Poor sweet baby, stuck in this mess of a story. Ah Dante, don’t you know Carly by now? Of course she’ll take off the minute your back is turned. Why not just work with her and let her lead you to Franco. Was it just me or did Penny look a lot like TB’s Carly? Loved Sean, Maura and Jane’s reactions when Miki announced their engagement. Tracy had this look of disgust while Ava looked like she swallowed a brick and AJ had a look of ‘man that boy is stupid’. Line of the day: when Morgan gets excited at someone’s mention of champagne, Tracy immediately says there are juice boxes in the fridge. Log in to Reply logan_echolls July 23, 2013 I just couldn’t today. The Franco stuff was horrid. When Franco told Franco/Jason that Jason and Liz love was imaginary, I was pissed. The whole time Danny was sitting there like , why? I also love how at times Danny was giving the side eye. After everything Sam has been through, how the freak is she this calm? At the hospital, the COS Monica didn’t know her grandson was STOLEN FROM THE HOSPITAL! Silas and Sam was a little too calm also. Where is Alexis? Where is Nik? Pls stop with all this. Also KiKi and Morgan announcing their upcoming marriage was not good since Morgan is a Corinthos!! I don’t see why AJ or Tracy would even care. Where is Sonny? We know where Carly is but she should be at the Q mansion scream/talking. This Morgan/KiKi/Michael is not a Quatermaine storyline. This should be a Jermone/Corinthos storyline. But Liz is a Porcelain Goddess. Log in to Reply katehhoward July 23, 2013 Todays episode was pure trash! My god can we please stop with the Franco nonsense. I understand they want to redeem the character but OMG I was cringing every time Franco scenes came up. I love RH but they made a major mistake letting him be Franco. It just is not working out. I would of preferred if they had Michael run into a girl he did not know but we audience members knew. Perhaps a Baldwin girl would of been nice. This piece of meat Michael is with now is not a viable get over chick. The whole scenes at the Q Mansion were the only thing that saved the episode. Carly is getting on my last nerve. Laura Wright is awesome but I can not stand seeing her everyday screaming at the top of her lungs. At least with Blair she can take it back a notch but Carly just goes on and on. Even Sarah Brown knew when to pull back, I love GH but they better start directing the cast better. There are a few actor who need direction and they need it fast. Log in to Reply GHteenybopper July 23, 2013 I do not believe for a frankensecond that Sam would just go to the hospital and sit there getting stitched up while her son is missing. This is the chick who jumped off a hotel building during the hostage crisis…This “backseat” Sam was not the Sam I know..she’s not Alexis. Speaking of Alexis…why wasn’t she called, why wasn’t her family out there helping look for Danny? I have a feeling some of RH’s scenes are gonna be on the soup, I cringed during most of it, I don’t know if it was because RH was overacting or if it was because this entire story is downright stupid, but I hated it and thought the acting was horrible. I really can’t believe I’m saying this, but the head honchos at GH either need to hire a co head writer as someone on here previously mentioned or RC needs to go. This show is turning into a campy mess with RC becoming the new holy trinity and consuming the whole show. It’s like the tbtp are letting RC write this show to shit so it can end up on PP or something.

Log in to Reply js3557 July 23, 2013 I was angry at first about the things that Franco was saying about Liason and their relationship, but then I took a breath and remembered that this is Franco’s interpretation of Liason, not Jason’s. Franco doesn’t know their entire history. He doesn’t know about their secret romance or about their safe house. Franco only knows what everyone else is PC knows. Only Jason and Elizabeth knew the depths of their feelings and why they felt it couldn’t work. The acting was over the top by RoHo in those scenes. I didn’t like how Sam refused to believe Silas about Franco’s tumor affecting his behavior and even rolled her eyes at Liz, but then immediately believed Monica when she said exactly what Silas and Liz had been saying. Silas hasn’t lied to her about anything and Liz is a surgical nurse who works with Patrick on many of his surgeries. Why disbelieve them so rudely? I laughed many times during the Q mansion scenes. AJ and Tracy were on fire with their one-liners. Log in to Reply Aurora2 July 23, 2013 This episode made me embarrassed to say that I watch GH. Enough of the overdone Franco/Jason scenes!! Log in to Reply mufasa July 23, 2013 It. Was. The. Worst. Show. in 50 years. The End Log in to Reply thecourt99 July 23, 2013 You know what’s funny? I am in catch up mode on the podcosts and I just heard Jamey’s rant about Y&R and why JG needs a co-writer. I think the same argument applies to RC. Log in to Reply jerrysd July 23, 2013 It was bad. Love Howarth but even I couldn’t stand his take on Franco/Jason anymore. And the fake outs are incredibly stupid, I feel like I’m watching Passions. I’m giving the show till the end of the week to turn it around. If not, I’ll finally take GH off my DVR and program Days instead. Log in to Reply logan_echolls July 23, 2013 Anyone see Jack Wagner’s tweets regarding GH: Jack Wagner @JackWagnerhpk 9h Very disappointed in the powers that b @ GH. The ratings momentum around the 50th was blown, BADLY, sorry GH fans we were misled Jack Wagner @JackWagnerhpk 9h The way Frisco was written out was wrong n out of character,I could hv fuckin screamed n should hv but didn’t want 2 make waves. Shame on me Jack Wagner @JackWagnerhpk 8h It’s my fault, I should hv had some sack n stood up 4 the character n his history but was a total pussy. I apologize GH n Frisco fans my bad Log in to Reply pferrando July 23, 2013 Damn. Isn’t there any other picture of this guy?

It could be said that for every one person who embraces the current vision of GH , there are 20 who mourn the loss of GH’s previous good quality and are not willing to sit quietly on their hands and say nothing. Log in to Reply Santa_Barbara_4Ever July 23, 2013 I started watching GH when GL went off the air. I stopped watching GH as of the end of yesterdays episode. God I hate to do it, but I can’t stand that they brought this Jason mess up. They should have left RH as Franco and moved forward. Instead of soapy drama….we got campy crap. I’m sticking with DAYS and I guess I’ll add B&B to my DVR. This is such a shame because I LOVE: Ava, Alexis, Carly, Sonny, AJ, Tracy……But Jason never was a favorite of mine and Steve Burton IMO was just blah (and he’s the same way on Y&R from what I’ve seen.) Someone needs to reign in the writing team at GH and give us classic soap. Don’t get me wrong, I love some fun in my dramas as well. Santa Barbara did that So Very Well! TAKE NOTE GH POWERS THAT BE: It takes a lot to make a soap viewer tune out. If I was able to stay with GL through the horrible last 2 years of its run and through the brief bad times at Santa Barbara and even DAYS during Dena Higley’s run, but I can’t handle this mess you are producing right now…..there is a SERIOUS issue here that you need to course correct and fast! Log in to Reply Cornfed July 23, 2013 GUYS GUYS GUYS — RoHo’s acting has ALWAYS BEEN ONE-NOTE AND HORRIBLE! Sorry to scream but glad to have some of you see the light later as opposed to never LOL Re: JW’s tweets, wow and double wow, appreciate him stepping up and saying what needs to be said. And can someone @ DC please remove the misleading “Best.News.Ever” Emme Rylan headline and story from the top of the feed? Granted, that *news* made my Monday but then realized it’s a story from 2012 LOL. I could only wish ER would go back to GH! Log in to Reply liason4real July 23, 2013 Today’s show was a mix bag of humor (Q mansion), bizarre (Franco/Franco) on the bridge, and funny (Sam having to sit around while her child was rescued by another woman!). Liz is a Porcelain Goddess! I don’t think JW will be making another return to the show! Log in to Reply bishbay July 23, 2013 Liz getting shot in the stomach and thrown into the water SOUNDS amusing but with Carlivati’s unerring talent for turning gold into shit I’m sure it was terrible. Carlivati doesn’t need a co-headwriter. He needs to lose his job. Fire Carlivati. Log in to Reply Yoryla July 23, 2013 I’m not sure whether Jack Wagner was right in his assessment or not, but I have to say this was a little silly of him to say. Now we know for sure he is not coming back to this show. And the fact that he is sorry about “not speaking up”, well I’m sorry but that was not only the right thing to do, but normal. You don’t start to make demands on people who have wanted you to return to the place that made you a star, against all odds. Nobody wants to work with someone who’s difficult. He wasn’t difficult, just like any normal person wouldn’t be. And what did he expect, really? With JFP and Guza he would never have gotten an invite back. Oh, and take no notice on FoxyMegan, he/she’s been positioning herself above everyone else and spewing that GHC crap here for several months. Log in to Reply Cornfed July 23, 2013 @Yorla, tho the ratings argument continues to this day, isn’t JW on point re: everything else? Do you think there was possibly a fallout behind the scenes? Maybe Jack was having one Jack too many? Log in to Reply tealita July 23, 2013 [quote=liason4real]Liz is a Porcelain Goddess![/quote] ROFL! I’ve prayed to the Porcelain Goddess on more than one regrettable moment in my life. 8) Speaking of regrettable moments, I’m sure JW’s God has a plan for how he’s gonna pay his bills.

And I enjoyed the AJ/Ava scenes and the reactions by the adults to Morgan/Kiki getting engaged. The rest of the show I sped through on FF. Log in to Reply Yoryla July 24, 2013 IOWA, well yes of course he had a point about the ratings. They ARE declining, and deservingly so! But otherwise, I just don’t think this is really his issue to say at this point. And I don’t think there was alcohol involved, I think he’s learned his lesson on that by now.
