General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

comments


Connie explains to Sonny how her original story about ELQ didn’t pan out, but she found another story. She tells him she overheard Morgan confess Kiki is not a Quartermaine. Sonny tells her no one can know the truth, because he promised Morgan he wouldn’t say anything. Sonny informs Connie his youngest son is afraid to lose Kiki to Michael. Connie accuses Sonny of sacrificing one son’s happiness for another, but Sonny feels this is his only way to prove to Morgan he truly does love him.  

 
Morgan has a nightmare where Michael knows the truth, and Kiki calls off the wedding.  When he wakes from it, he tells Kiki he doesn’t remember it. However, later he admits the dream involved her calling off the wedding.  Kiki declares she’s not calling anything off.  She asks what Sonny’s reaction was, and is surprised when Morgan tells her that his father gave his blessing. 
 
Carly tells Michael that Franco is a match for Danny, and they are waiting for test results.  She tells him about Morgan’s wedding plans, and wants Michael to talk Morgan out of it.  Michael informs her Morgan won’t listen to him either, and explains about his attraction to Kiki.  Carly decides it’s all the more reason to stop the wedding, especially if Kiki doesn’t return Morgan’s feelings.  She compares it to her marriage with AJ, while planning a life with Jason. She won’t let that happen to Morgan.   
 
Sam’s freaking out because they haven’t heard from Silas about Franco’s tests yet. Molly begs her to wait a little longer, and believes no news is good news. However, Sam decides to track down Silas.  After she’s gone, Molly breaks down with Alexis.  When she calms down, the two make small talk.  Molly tells her mother she may give TJ a second chance, and asks about Shawn.  Alexis decrees they are done. 
 
Rafe wants answers from Silas, who is still working in the lab.  He recruits Rafe’s help, and then asks about Molly.  Rafe explains they’re just friends, but Silas tells him to go after what he wants.  
 
Maxie overhears Derek telling someone that nobody knows what he’s up to.  He confronts her, but Maxie swears she didn’t hear anything.  He grabs her arm, as Olivia arrives and warns him to stop.  Olivia throws Connie’s name around, but Derek tells her he owns the company and is Connie’s boss.  Olivia tells him if he messes with Maxie again, he’ll regret it.  Derek tells Maxie not to listen to his conversations again. 
 
Maxie tells Olivia she believes Connie has a big story, and then apologizes to Olivia for telling Connie to go after Sonny.  Olivia assures her that she’ll be fine. 
 
TJ tells Shawn that he and Molly may be reconciling.  He tells Shawn to go after Alexis.  
 
Morgan and Kiki overhear Carly tell Michael that Sonny will likely stop the wedding. Morgan tells her Sonny gave them his blessing, so Carly storms off to find Sonny.  
 
Connie continues to try to make Sonny see reason in the situation.  She feels if Kiki loves Michael, then Morgan needs to let her go. She also believes Kiki needs to know the truth. She says Sonny can be there to help Morgan through it.  Sonny is prepared to keep the secret if it will prove to Morgan how much he loves him.  Connie’s upset this means she loses her story, and likely her magazine.  
 
Connie goes to Derek, and tells him there is no story. Derek informs Connie she’s out of a job.  
 
Carly storms into Sonny’s house, and asks why he gave his blessing to the wedding.  
 
Rafe overhears Molly tell Alexis about a possible reconciliation with TJ.  He tells her it’s a mistake, because TJ is not the right guy for her. Rafe declares he is the right guy for Molly.   
 
Sam shows up at the lab looking for answers.  Alexis comes to offer her support, and the women ask Silas whether Franco will be able to save Danny.

I love how the women (Carly and Connie) were making total sense with the whole, "if Kiki loves Michael she shouldn't marry Morgan", but the boys were all, "but that's what Morgan wants".

I also got a little weirded out when Morgan was almost begging Kiki to marry him and not change her mind. I know the boy is starved for attention, but eesh.

Loved Olivia coming to Maxie's defence. Derek, dude, don't be manhandling the pregnant women.

Loved Molly's very realistic break down after Sam left.

Loved Carly showing up at Sonny's and knocking on the door and being all "see I knocked and waited" before tearing a strip off of him.

The Morgan/Lauren/Michael stuff was the only part of GH I didn't enjoy today, I don't give two craps about Lauren, and it's way too repetitive. Everyone is bagging out Morgan, but no one is talking to Michael about backing off his brother's girlfriend. Michael has no boundaries, and I don't see this so called chemistry between the two characters anyways.

Loved the CarSon scenes.

They really need to hurry up and find a match for Danny, I can't take anymore of this sick baby story and seeing Sam miserable and crying almost every day, yet again. If they had little spots after the show like they did during Kristina's abuse storyline informing viewer about Leukemia then maybe I would care a little more, but as usual on GH they tend to miss those beats, and shift the focus to different characters. A story involving a disease like this should be a little more informative to viewers..missed opportunity there.

Hate Olivia, but loved that she defended Maxie against Derek the Douche. I love when Maxie rambles when she's trying to explain stuff, she's like Spinelli, but less annoying and for the most part her sentences make sense lol

Oh.....and GO AWAY RAFE!!! Good Lord, that boy needs to find a hobby and a personality. I don't think I've ever hated a new character this much in years. I can't explain it, I just loathe him, he always looks like he's about to break down and cry. Get him some paxil.

RC tweeted that Luke is back tomorrow, so hopefully we get to see some fun stuff with L&L while they look for Luke's cure!

My main issue with M/M/K triangle is that the story is going at warp speed. Slow the heck down. Let Michael back off and date other women.

Yeah! Today was a FrankenToddJason free day!

Rafe is annoying. Ugh. The boy was kind of cute at first, but now he's just bugging me with his whiny need to be all up in Molly's business. Paging Ric Lansing!

Derek looks too way to young to be Sam's father.

I am looking forward to no more Connie on my screen and hope she takes Olivia with her on her way out of town...please!

It's been nice not seeing Luke's face on my screen, so here's hoping he dies before ever setting foot back in Port Charles.

I actually kind of enjoy the triangle between Michael, Kiki and Morgan. The built up is good and I can't wait for all this to blow up. I also expect that keeping Morgan's secret will be having a huge impact on Sonny's relationship to Michael.

It's beyond me though how Sonny justifies keeping Morgan's secret. Giving the kid attention is good, but getting in on his lie and let your other son believe he's falling for his cousin is just wrong.

Wouldn't surprise me if with the end of this storyline Michael takes AJ's last name.

Can't stand Molly or Rafe anymore. Molly is whining all the time while Rafe seems to be a depressed teenager that never looks happy.

I liked Carly and Connie's POV today.

And no FrankenTodd today. Yay!!!!

I may be among the minority but Kiki doesn't bother me as much as Franco and Dr. Hasnopersonality. That isn't really much of a ringing endorsement but Michael and Kiki have something there. The problem is they are on too much. I also wish Kiki wasn't saying she likes Morgan. Triangles work for me when both sides are viable. This is playing out that the only thing keeping these two apart is that "kissing cousins" are frowned upon. It seems like if their relationship wasn't public knowledge the two of them would be all in. They do not feel disgusted by their lust at all. Michael doesn't seem to mind messing with his brother's girlfriend. Kiki is all about Michael but will stay with Morgan as a fall back position. Why isn't breaking up with him and being alone an option? Anywho, their screentime annoys me but the actors are likable and talented enough. The actor playing Morgan is growing on me. I wish he would have more scenes with his family or scenes where he is looking for a job.

Franco and Dr crabbypants are just failures for me. It is probably because the writers seem to feel the need to shove these square pegs into the Carly/Sam round holes. It isn't working for me. One of them is just lacking any personality and the other is unnecessarily always going for the comic turn. Why would Carly ever develop romantic feelings for a man who set her son up to be raped? Why would Sam ever have romantic feelings for a man she associates with her son's possible death? He isn't exactly making any effort to be kind. He is ham fisted at bedside manner. I would think when Danny is "cured" Dr. Ponytail would be a bad memory. Michael will never be able to forget his rape if his mother ignores that experience and involves herself with Franco regardless of whether he had a brain tumor. He still set that rape in motion. Neither story makes sense to me.

I watched this episode with a friend who works at a local medical center. She schedules surgeries. She told me she works in the hospital and cannot get anywhere near the labs. The labs have security doors behind security doors. She cannot even accidentally walk onto wing or floor. The way Sam, Rafe, and Alexis were allowed into the lab would never happen. I asked her if a doctor would ever perform the tests himself and she said doctors barely involve themselves with the patients but they also do not have unlimited access to labs.

It really bothered me Sam kept interrupting the test. She wants to chat and distract the lab test that could save her kids life? Couldn't they have had her chatting up the owner of her next couch while Ellie performed the tests? It would have made her seem less stupid. I have been trying really hard to feel the emotion with this Danny cancer story but that is really hard with Kelly Monaco and Michael Easton leading the story. Molly's breaking down was the first time I saw any real emotion. Alexis isn't even giving me any emotion.

This show is all over the place.

William DeVry is only 8 years older than Kelly Monaco.

But if he really is playing Sam's father, the big winner in all this will be Nancy Lee Grahn, who's actually 12 years older than the actor playing the "older guy" who seduced hear all those years ago.

I actually enjoyed the Davis girls scenes. I thought KM did a great job. I found it very realistic that Sam would snap at and lash out at her mom and sister while she is stressed. That is something that happens in real families. You can lash out at your family freely because you know they will understand and still love and support you. I also like Molly's reaction after Sam left (even though she needs to work on her crying). The only time I cringed was when suddenly realized that Sam was snapping at a teenager, but given that they are sisters I could overlook that.

I did not understand why Rafe, Sam and Alexis were able to get access to the lab. I did not get why Rafe was not only hanging out in the lab, but had gloves on and was assisting Silas. I did not get why Silas was doing the testing. Most doctors wouldn't even know how to operate the equipment or run the tests. They can read results, but they usually don't know how to run the tests or the equipment. These weird moments threw the scenes off for me. I get that it's a soap and they were just condensing events to save time, but I agree with GHvetfan that Silas and Rafe and then Sam and Rafe could have had these conversations while a lab technician ran the tests.

Rafe is kind of creepy when he is around Molly, and Molly is a whine-bag when she is around Rafe.

Kate and Carly on the same side and they are right? Will wonders never cease! Sonny is being manipulated by Carly Part Deux (aka Morgan). I don't like Kiki, I don't see any chemistry between her and Michael, and I think Michael would be better with Sabrina or someone new.

Where has Ellie been? We haven't seen her in weeks. Must be hanging out with Duke, Anna, Mac and Felicia.

Although Carly drew a parallel to the her, AJ and Jason situation when talking to Michael the triangle it reminds me of more is the one that drew me into the GH years ago -- Rick/Monica/Jeff.

Monica married Rick's younger brother Jeff when they thought Rick was dead. Jeff was so desperately in love with Monica that he tried to kill himself when he discovered Rick and Monica having an affair... If the writers could draw this out -- have Kiki and Morgan actually marry before the news comes out the potential is there for years of story especially if Michael becomes involved with someone else (Sabrina could be the "Leslie" in the quad)

Perkie - I wish there was a "like" option on these posts! I have been missing Anna, Mac and Felicia.

I've been wanting Carly to start knocking on other people's doors before she enters their homes for years.... it's nice to see you can teach an old dog new tricks, too bad it won't stick.

Loved the Davis girls scene. You can really tell how much shorter Kemo is compared to Haley in that scene... LOL.

After the Maxie/Robin/gas value thing you'd think no one other than hospital personnel would be in any of the labs, but then again this is the same hospital where anyone can look up and talk about anyone else's medical business without penalty, so eh.

Why do either Morgan or Michael want Kiki anyway? Both of them know she's been playing tonsil hockey with his brother. Gross.

Can Rafe and his hairline pls exit Port Charles. Isn't there some boarding school Silas can send that annoying brat to?

I work in a hospital lab. In what lab do you let a kid just hang out w/o a lab jacket or safety glasses? They are researching to to make sure Franco is a match and Rafe just hanging out in there?!?! Kill him And hurry and cure Danny. KeMo has got to be tired of crying and running her hands through her hair everyday.

There is nothing that can make me like Molly. I was so hoping at least ONE of Alexis kids can have her half Cassadine gene and half Ric gene.

I can not believe Sonny is going along with this lie. Like Carly told Michael, why would he let Morgan settle with a girl who doesn't love him.

So Derek is just a mustache twirling bad guy? I don't give a care who he is, he should NOT have grabbed Maxie. That did not make him an appealing character especially for his second day.

Um, isn't Kate an editor? Shouldn't she have reporters working for her? Why is she doing the reporting herself? Also since Jax gave her his share, why doesn't she just sell her half or the MetroCourt back to Carly and use that money to keep her magazine. Also why the heck did she tell Sonny about the KiKi thing. It's called a secret source. Reporters keep their sources a secret. Kate could have done the report without Sonny even knowing she found out from him.

One small thing that helped make the scenes a touch more believable was that AT LEAST the door was locked, and Silas had to go to the door and open it for people to enter. That's something. People weren't just able to breeze in and out as though it was just another room. For a soap, that was pretty amazing. Smile

What bothered me the most in this episode was Derek manhandling a pregnant Maxie. Only a really nasty guy would do that....I was appalled... LOL I also loved Olivia coming in to Maxie's rescue. If Derek turns out to be Sam's dad, I will feel sorry for her getting such a loser of a father after all these years.

GHFan77 - Derek grabbing Maxie like that and bothered me too. Grabbing any woman that way is wrong. Grabbing a pregnant woman that way is wrongest of wrongs.

I agree js...manhandling ANY woman like that is wrong...but a pregnant woman is the lowest of low. My mouth fell open, and I literally said oh no you didn't LOL. If he turns out to be Sam's dad, that is really a shame. We already know that he is Lucas's biological father now with the Julian reveal on today's show. That would make them half siblings. Wow Sam's family just keeps growing all the time...OH no lol...I just thought of this, it would sort of relate her to Carly also. Bobbie as Lucas's adopted mother makes them siblings.
