HomeTVGeneral HospitalGeneral Hospital: Perkie’s Observations Perkie July 30, 2013 General Hospital, TV Recap 41 Comments Diane declares AJ the CEO of ELQ, which shocks Tracy. She quickly realizes someone in her group must have flipped their vote to AJ. She initially believes it is either Brook Lynn or Maya, but Diane informs Tracy they stayed on her side. Tracy then deduces the only other person with five percent is Alice, and turns to her. Tracy mentions Alice promised Luke she’d always side with Tracy. Alice points out Luke isn’t here, and AJ is family. Alice calls Tracy a bully, and feels she shouldn’t have called a vote when a family member was hospitalized. Alice knows family was important to Edward, and Tracy takes exception to that. The two women fight while everyone else looks on. Dr. Obrecht is back in town to warn Britt that people are plotting against her. Britt tells her mother she is fine. Sabrina walks up and asks to be introduced to Britt’s friend. Britt claims she doesn’t know the woman, and was only making small talk. Felix tells Sabrina he has confirmation Patrick may not be the baby’s father, and Britt and her mother are hiding something. Sabrina thinks the woman with Britt must have been her mother. Connie decides to head to ELQ to get a story for the paper, so the new boss doesn’t shut it and Crimson down. Sonny warns her to watch her back around AJ, but Connie isn’t concerned. She is determined to save her company. Patrick tells Carly and Morgan that Franco survived the surgery, and he removed the tumor. Morgan heads off to tell Kiki. Sam runs into Carly, who tells her the news. Sam is thrilled Franco will be able to save Danny. Carly asks to sit with Franco. Patrick is surprised at her concern, but warns he doesn’t know what the side effects of the surgery will be. Carly talks to Franco, and he opens his eyes. She tells Franco he’ll be able to save Danny’s life, which just may redeem him. Carly is glad he’s alive. Franco reaches out and touches her arm. Kiki congratulates Michael with a hug, and Morgan sees it. He tells her Franco is out of surgery, and Ava is thankful. Morgan heads out to see Sonny. Dr. Obrecht complains about Britt’s weight, and the people who plotting against her. Britt knows about the possible threat, and is one step ahead of Sabrina and Felix. Her mother nags she should have gotten Patrick by now. Britt admits nothing she does works, and thinks she should cut her losses. Dr. Obrecht questions whether Britt still loves Patrick, or if she has eyes for Nikolas. Britt stresses she and Nik are just friends. The two argue about Dr. O’s failures with Britt’s father, and Dr. O. smacks Britt in the face. Britt does care for Patrick, but he doesn’t care for her. Dr. O. believes Patrick will love her when his baby is born. Britt reminds her mother she isn't carrying Patrick’s baby. AJ tells Tracy to leave, because he won. Tracy declares she’ll get ELQ back, and fires Alice. Tracy’s upset, but Ava asks her what Edward would say. Tracy decides Kiki needs to change her vote, and Ava needs to make it happen. Ava tells her Kiki is upset with her for conspiring with Tracy, and has become attached to Franco. She knows her daughter won't change her vote. Tracy wishes Kiki wasn’t a Quartermaine, and asks if it’s possible Franco isn’t her father. Ava lies, and confirms Kiki is a Quartermaine. AJ wants to go somewhere with Liz to celebrate his victory. Sam questions Patrick about Franco’s readiness to donate. Patrick tells her that he may not be able to, because they found some suspicious cells. If they turn out to be cancerous, his marrow wouldn’t be viable. Sam cries Franco is Danny’s only hope, and she can’t lose her son. Patrick hugs her and says he’s hoping for the best. However, she should continue to look for a donor. Connie stops by ELQ looking for a story, but Michael explains Tracy didn’t have the votes and AJ is still CEO. Sonny wonders why Morgan wants to tie himself down at his age. Morgan loves Kiki, and wants to spend his life with her. Sonny presses the issue, and wonders what Morgan isn’t saying. Morgan admits he may lose Kiki to Michael, which Sonny doesn't think is possible because they are cousins. Connie arrives in time to hear Morgan confess Kiki and Michael are not cousins, because she’s not a Quartermaine. 41 Responses Perkie July 30, 2013 Have we been told Dr. O’s first name and I’m not remembering it? Because I’m tired of writing it out in full. I want to say her name is Maria but I could be making that up. She looks like she’d be a Maria though, doesn’t she?! Interesting Dr. O/Britt scenes. She is a hateful woman but then turns it off when she’s trying to get Britt to do her bidding. And we have confirmation that the baby isn’t Patrick and that Britt is fully aware and in on whatever plan is going on. Loved the Sam/Patrick scenes. There was more chemistry there than in six months of Pat/Sabrina. Hated the Carly/Franco scene. How long before she conveniently forgets he was responsible for Michael’s rape and ends up with him. Love that Connie is overhearing the truth about Kiki and will likely be the one to out her. Log in to Reply GHteenybopper July 30, 2013 Perkie…I think her name is Lisa, I’m not 100% sure though, but I think in Switzerland someone (Faison?) called her Lisa. What is this madness with Carly sympathizing with Francoma????? RoHo just lying there was some of the best acting I’ve seen since he’s stepped into the role of Franco. I think they should just keep Franco in a coma or unconscious…w/e he is for the duration of RoHo’s contract. The Michael/Kiki scenes are so repetitive and unnecessary. Even though it was no secret that the baby isn’t Patrick’s, I’m still team Britt, I actually feel bad for her at times, I’m sure both her parents would off her in a heartbeat if it was a means to an ends for them, and she truly has no friends in PC. Connie overhearing the stuff about Kiki was good, but good Lord, I hope Ava doesn’t find out she knows and goes into Sniper mode and kills her…..because if Connie is killed off, I want it done in a way to ensure they can never bring her back again, maybe her head can fall off (Harsh, I know, just watched a marathon of Dexter, sorry…sort of). I hope they don’t drag out this Kiki/Silas secret, because I want to see Tracy beat AJ. TEAM TRACY FTW!

LOL! Do you suppose Francoma will still be the “Wizard of Id” when he wakes up? Maybe this time, he’ll wake up thinking he’s Dr. Jason Q., memories and all. :bigsmile: Log in to Reply JASAMMABBY July 30, 2013 I relly have to say I am team Tracy. I still don’t get why everyine thinks AJ should get ELQ.. That frat boy grin of his made me want to smack him.. However so much goodness with Tracy and Alice and Diane.. Sam/Patrick were gold for me. Whenever I see them together they have so much hotness. Would not mind some bonding and hooking up there. Sam was great with Carly today to. Kemo has been knocking her scenes out of the park lately. She will always bee one of the greatest when it comes to expressing so many emptions for me. I also love how well others can play off her.. Connie and Sonny were so so for me.. Dr. O’s accent makes me giggle. If Kiki and Sabrina vanished tomorrow I would be in heaven. Log in to Reply RoMo4322 July 30, 2013 Can someone please tell me what is so gorgeous out Kiki that Michael feels the need to act like a high school freshman, sweating profusely while trying his damnedest to keep his pants on???? I just don’t get it!! LOL Log in to Reply katehhoward July 30, 2013 I know they are planning on killing off Connie but my GOD, when Kate Howard stepped unto the scene by Megan Ward no one wanted her to be killed off. Because of FV and RC Connie was Kate was destroyed and became one of the most hated characters in soaps. It is sad that people want Connie dead but they don’t remember that Kate is Connie and Kate played by Megan Ward was a delight and amazing character. I feel that this is one of the worst moves FV could make and the last time they had Kate leave the canvas she flew off to Paris to launch Crimson over there. But the fact that they have Connie running around looking for news stories unrelated to Crimson is utter nonsense. I can not say anymore just that Kate Howard will always be a great character in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdsvPyjHoYg Log in to Reply GHvetfan July 30, 2013 I am a bit tired of the Tracy and AJ dance. There is nothing new there. It really wasn’t making sense to Sam that if Franco has cancer he could make Danny sicker. I am so glad I didn’t have to see Dr. Greasyhair today. I am officially sick of Sobrina. It really took me too long to get here. She isn’t interesting. I still do not get why Britt wants Patrick so much that she would be willing to carry someone else’s child. Is this so her mother can taunt Robin? I think they could just tell Robin that Patrick had moved on. Is this to have Luke’s grandchild? I do not understand. Was is necessary to have Liz in the boardroom? Can they please give her story? Log in to Reply maxsmom July 30, 2013 Danny’s story could be an opportunity to learn about bone marrow donation in addition to the predictable story that is playing out. Sam should be on television asking for everyone in Port Charles and the surrounding area to sign up for the donor registry. of course, that kind of realism would invite scrutiny that would mean the storytelling would have to be tight and precise rather than Carlivati slapdash. I follow Frank Valentini on Twitter and I try to watch when he says big things are happening but I haven’t been truly involved since the anniversary celebration. I can’t count the number of times I quit this show with grand pronouncements and then came sniveling back, but for the past few months I can’t get hooked. It’s as though my Junior’s Cheesecake has been replaced by The Cheesecake Factory, it’s edible but it’s not the taste I love. Edited to Add: I will always be Team AJ. I waited so long to have Sean Kanan back and a Q corporate story front and center. It’s too bad that the actual goings on are ridiculous. Log in to Reply Yoryla July 30, 2013 The so-called “fight” for ELQ is horrible and a ridicule. The relish story was bad enough, and went on for too long – but at least that was based on actual roots in the show’s history. It was Edward and Lila’s legacy to Tracy. And I liked the initial premise of the storyline. The thing were it became ridiculous was there having TWO different relishes – roll eyes. And then of course followed the infamous, beyond-disgusting Chew debacle. Omg, that was hor-rib-le. Then I thought it couldn’t get any worse. Wrong! They introduced a bunch of random faces, who I really couldn’t care less about as Faux-Q’s and dared to make THEM apart of the storyline. And if the spoilers are accurate, this might get EVEN worse (if you can imagine that possible!). The fight shouldn’t even be internal anymore at this point. There should be another company to fight AGAINST ELQ, with Tracy and AJ finally coming to an agreement, and co-CEO-ing the place. I actually do think Tracy should be the CEO moreso than AJ, although I find Tracy a spiteful, hateful harpy usually. Nobody wants to see this family fighting internally ALL the time (Although granted, internal fighting is what the Q’s are all about.) But I mean this, most people love Tracy and most people love AJ. It gets tiring to constantly see them fighting. And I still can’t really even remember WHY AJ even wants to be the CEO in the first place. I only remember him saying he needs to prove himself to Michael, etc. You don’t need to be a CEO to do that! Hello, Michael already trusts you, mission accomplished. But then again, this is one of the BETTER storylines of the show! Log in to Reply FaisonFanInTexas July 30, 2013 Team AJ. I like Tracy usually but I wanted to smack her with all of her screaming and carrying on. Get a damn grip. Did she really think she was going to cause Alice any kind of physical harm? Tracy’s like a pissed off 14 year old most of the time. Loved Diane’s little dance out of the way, though. Team Britta. I like her more everyday. Sabrina has got to be the most boring person ever on a soap. I don’t know why anyone would give 2 hoots about her. Someone said awhile back that Ava’s facial expressions were “reptile-like”. I agree 100% with this, but I still like Ava(so far). I am SO sick of Kiki, I sure as hell don’t see what everybody’s in love with there. Was I the only ones yelling for a DNA test when Morgan told Sonny that he had not “knocked up” Kiki? He can’t possibly be a Corinthos if he’s having sex but hasn’t impregnated anyone yet. :p Log in to Reply Cornfed July 30, 2013 [quote=GHteenybopper]RoHo just lying there was some of the best acting I’ve seen since he’s stepped into the role of Franco.

Log in to Reply logan_echolls July 30, 2013 The only good thing about the ELQ story is Ava and Tracy becoming BFFs. They better not mess with that budding friendship. I also don’t understand what it is about KiKi that got Michael acting like a high school boy. If Ned, Skye, Dillon heck even Brooklyn was involved in this ELQ storyline, I might care but I don’t. I know LW wants to work with Roger badly. She’s been harping on them for the longest but this time it won’t work. If Carly gets with Franco after everything that man has done to her love ones, it makes Carly a less viable character. It would make it hard to listen to Carly when she worries about her kids if she gets with Franco. Franco tried to steal Joss first before Aiden! He got her son raped. That whole bedside scene was ridic. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Britt. The actress got me loving her. Sabrina sickens me with her holier than thou attitude. She did the exactly same thing Britt did to get Patrick except instead of using sex, she used the memory of his dead wife (the nurse’s ball) and his daughter. And Felix needs a life of his own. Worry about his sister instead of stupid Sabrina’s boring love life. Britt reminds me a little of SJB’s Carly. All the horrible things Carly did and said, I still cheered for her because the actress was able to get you to love her no matter what. That’s what the actress who plays Britt is able to do. I love Britt. But not with Nik. They should have showed Liz involved in Franco’s care. She’s a surgical nurse. Log in to Reply liason4real July 30, 2013 If Jason and Lucky could take Sam back after she terrorized baby Jake, Carly can bang Franco all over town. Liz/RH needs her own story. Team Britta for the win! I love Britta and her devious dancing Dr. O. Now all we need are scenes of Britta and her evil father, Faison. Felix needs to backoff with all of the ugly comments about Britta. Yes, Sabrina is his friend, but the woman should be able to handle her own business with Britta and Patrick. Awwww. Quiz looked so adorable yesterday. I was hoping AJ was going to suggest that Liz bring the boys and they all take off for a nice long vacation. Log in to Reply GHFan777 July 30, 2013 LOL…I think it is a riot that NO ONE likes the Disney Princess Sabrina. I have yet to see anyone say anything positive about this character. I agree with her being the most boring propped character also. ESPECIALLY the other day with Felix texting Michael to suffer through the kiss for Sabrina…WHY??? LOL why should he care about her. I liked the Sam and Patrick scenes. Kelly has been doing a great job with her scenes lately. I thought Alice and Tracy scenes were funny, especially when AJ didn’t break the fight up. Loved the Britt/Dr O scenes. I do like Britt, however I can’t get invested in any romance for her. Eventually what she has done in cahoots with her mother, will break up anything she has started with either Nik or Patrick. I will continue to like the character though. She actually makes me feel bad for her at times, with that monster of a mother. Can’t stand Carly…really can’t stand FrankenToddson, or the idea of Carly forgiving him and hooking up with him. FFT that was me that said that Ava’s facial expressions reminded me of a reptile…I am SO HAPPY you see that also…I do like Ava though…I tend to like the bad girls. They make the show interesting. WAYYYYY sick of the Kiki/Michael/Morgan storyline and seeing their faces EVERY DAY!

Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin July 30, 2013 Iowa dont even sweat it – we always have to have some reference to the summer of sleaze the second that anyone does anything wrong on a soap. And for the record I agree – Carly banging franco makes carly a less viable character to me. i could get forgiving him for stealing joss, but franco caused michael a LIFETIME of pain. If they paired franco with ava legitimately or someone that his reign of terror didnt impact SO dramatically like connie (were she staying) or olivia or even liz i could come to maybe accept it but carly should NEVER want to be with franco. NEVER. I dont understand cartini sometimes – carly and aj have so much history and so much chemistry, why they arent telling that story i will never know. Log in to Reply Yoryla July 30, 2013 I have had to start FF’ing Maura West just because I can’t stand her scene partners. TBH Ava herself has started to wear out her welcome for me. I smell another botched storyline for a MW character coming up – this has all the same signs as in Y&R with Diane. Log in to Reply Cornfed July 30, 2013 They aren’t telling that story b/c it’s STILL all about OLTL obsession, at least to some degree. If RoHo wants to be the next smarmy David Duchovny, PLEASE let him. PLEASE! As someone stated earlier, Ava and Anna should be doing a dance about now, but they don’t want to tell that story, OR they’re making viewers wait for it. Who knows!

Log in to Reply JASAMMABBY July 30, 2013 I can’t figure out if it is deliberate writing but I just can’t support what I see on my screen. Todays episode was making it even worst. AJ/Liz- Am I suppose to like them because I can’t stand seeing them together. There is no pop. Liz should be with Patrick or Nic or someone new.. AJ/Carly have crazy hot chemistry. I love it even though I know I shouldn’t.. Patrick/Sabrina- Hate her! Patrick is so wasted on her. Maybe I would love to see Sam and Patrick together till their true loves Robin and Jason are back. Seriously anything is better than Sabrina.. She is a twit!! Michael/Kiki/Morgan… Hate her! No matter how this is written I am rooting for Morgan. Michael is scamming on his little bro’s girl and doesn’t even seem to think it’s wrong. I still have no idea where their sudden passion came from. CD is wasted on her. Morgan is wasted on her.. Ellie!! I love her. The only new character I love yet I feel she will be somehow sacrficed and I will endure many months of Kikirina.. Log in to Reply tealita July 30, 2013 Carly schtupping Franken-Todd does absolutely make her a less viable character. I also agree that she does have amazing chemistry with AJ. I’m just guessing though, that neither LW or RoHo, or Carlivati see it that way. They have salaries and episode counts to defend. Why would LW want Carly to be romantically paired with AJ if it effects her earnings? Based on the fact that LW has come right out and said that she wants to work with RoHo, it’s fair for me to comment on it. It’s a shame though, because Franco is a bust–IMO, of course. And…even though it looks like Quiz is a go, it feels like it’s stalled, for what reason, I don’t know. I’m making a concerted effort to enjoy most of what we are getting, but the storylines are thin. Most of the newbies have yet to be fleshed out, and even the vet sl/s are patchy at best. I’m beginning to wonder if we might be hear rumbles that GH will indeed sunset by spring of next year; not that I want that to happen, so please don’t think I’m trying to cast some bad juju on the show.From my observation, it looks like FV&RC are working with three alternative scenarios: the right now filler, the hopefully longer arcs, and end-game. As a result, GH is a mess, and it makes it very hard to latch onto the stories that we do like. Again, this is just my opinion. I’m not in possession of any intel that we all haven’t already heard–and I’m definitely not blaming my opinion on the ratings. I know, I know: “GH isn’t going anywhere.” Log in to Reply Cornfed July 30, 2013 JASAMMABBY — LOL, LOVE THIS POST. It sucks when politics eat up a show. Laura Wright (aka Blair) wants to work with RoHo, so that’s the end game. Brian Frons had the hots for KeMo, so Sam was changed into an angel that could do no harm. (GH was better when she was bad!) The story direction usually has LITTLE to do with the fans! It’s amazing how much more interesting — tho no less propped up — Sobrina was when she was a mousy nerd. Yes, now she’s just a twit. An irrelevant twit. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin July 30, 2013 Liason seriously does every post and every topic have to come back to jake for you. Sam was the love of jasons life and he recognized that not only did she have some break down issues from all the loss she endured, he shared some culpability in how they got there as a couple. Then she saved jakes life and showed her endless regret. Even with all that it took years for him to forgive even thought jake wasnt a daily part of his life. you may think it made no sense that he forgave her but to most viewers it certainly did. Todd/carly – they played that he understood how she did bad things because he did too and visa versa. Todd hurt many people but he didnt do it in front of carly and he didnt hurt her children. Even his transgression against jason – listen to her remarks, it was always if you had told me the truth i could have made sure the baby got back to jason – so the only person she loved that he hurt, she convinced herself that she COULD have made it right. franco is entirely different. She would be falling in love with him knowing he kidnapped joss and knowing he set the ball rolling with respect to michaels rape. She didnt love him, he went off the rails, and then she forgave him, she would be knowingly involving herself with the man that did those things. Ill add too – carly didnt have to look at her kids and justify loving someone that hurt them. jason didnt have to do that either – i cant imagine jake coming to him as a teen and asking why he forgave sam for allowing someone else to take him for a week, my guess is he would barely remember it if he remembered at all. With Franco – im sorry but i cant imagine trying to explain to my son that i fell in love with the guy who got him sodomized. We watched michael grow up – not chad per se the way we watched kim m – but certainly the character and i would have huge issues with carly for that sort of betrayal. Tealita, i dont blame lw for wanting a paycheck but she is going to be front burner no matter what. If they hooked her up with aj, sonny would lose his mind, she would be regularly interacting with tracy and ava, she would have cause to fuss with liz, and hell there would still be interaction with franco at the house. Plus you have lucas potentially coming to the show and the story with michael and morgan, im just not sure with all that there is a reason to believe that carly would be backburnered if not for the carco pairing.

They had no handle on the character when the brought her on, but they brought her on straight from a popular run on port charles and not because frons had the hots but because on a show that was frequently a hot mess, the one pairing that really really caught on was livvie and caleb. i definitely thought she came on as a future leading lady for the show. That said i dont think she is an angel any more than carly is an angel. Angels arent interesting – as we see with sabrina. The only “angel” that every worked was robin.

Is that why he’s a supporting character and not a lead?[/quote] ==== I hope not. I like Sk’s version of AJ. I don’t remember anyone wanting SBu or TC fired because they were so bulky back in 2009.

Log in to Reply Cyberologist July 31, 2013 liason4real Elizabeth does have a story (I know it doesn’t seem like it) but as was explained a way to interpret it is who is right? – Can Elizabeth resist walking down the same destructive path as before? She felt renewing a relationship with Nikolas is re-embarking on the same destructive path she forged before. Is AJ a healthy relationship for Elizabeth or not? That is the question. Both Nikolas & Elizabeth feel the other is making a major mistake. Who is right? That is the story. IMO that’s the reason for her (visually) “standing by (her man) his side in story is to up the ante they are emphasizing her unconditional “support” as Liz and AJ continue to grow closer in their relationship.

If they so desperately wanted the Q part of the story, he could have been Jimmy Lee Holt’s son/grandson and created a whole new character that would make sense having Carly hook up with. Franco and Carly is a square peg that they are trying to pound into a round hole and it will not work. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin July 31, 2013 Liason i never said be happy with it, but as much as i hated the summer of sleaze you dont hear me comparing liz to franco now do you? Franco is a crazy serial killer. liz has done some pretty terrible things – as has sam, carly, connie, etc. etc – but there isnt any character that weve seen as a truly long term viable character where they were in a pair that was being written as one to root for that compares in misdeeds to franco. No matter what any of these characters have done, how does it compare to getting a minor raped? Not to mention the serial killing of innocent random young women. Oh and i forgot – didnt carly once say lulu was like a daughter or a sister (?) to her – what about what franco did to her? Thats why i think its comical that your agenda is so strong that you would even try and go there. I also disagree with the whole politics thing extending to all these pairings. We know LW and roho enjoy working with each other but ive read things that all suggests that lw loves working with sk. i dont fault them for wanting to work with one another. the only thing i dont understand is cartini. like Perkie said if thats where they were going why make roho franco. Heck as ive said, i could have seen jimmys son showing up with surgery to look like franco as part of a heather created plan. they could have let the viewers in on the scam from nearly jump while they told the pc reacting to FRANCO story the same way. instead of a tired brain tumor story, they could have had fake franco falling for carly and having to choose between claiming the inheritance and place in the family that edward cut them out of or coming forward, admitting he isnt REALLY franco and having a shot at the woman. Thats all on cartini that they went with the bad choice of franco. now is that politics or hubris? that he could see anything? or was it wanting the creative challenge of selling it? or did he just think truly that was the better story. Whos to say Those same questions could be asked about all the pairings liason that you mention. like i have always said, if we have certain preferences, why would we expect the people who put the show together not to have theirs.

And why wouldn’t they show us AJ and Liz on their celebratory date? The biggest problem I have with this couple is tat no time is bing spent showing them growing closer. We were getting that earlier in te ear but after the Nurses Ball it all went kaput. I could watch Dr. O all day every day. She is just a hoot and watching her warped motherly love moments with her Schotsie are great. Log in to Reply logan_echolls July 31, 2013 Oh Perkie, great idea. Just imagine of Jimmy Lee’s son came back for revenge since his dad was cut out the will and his life was hard. He could romance Carly. AJ would be pissed and this would also create drama for Michael and Carly since Michael is helping AJ with ELQ yet his mom is with the man trying to ruin AJ and ELQ. Wish Ron would have thought and planned this out better. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
