General Hospital: Perkie's Observations

51
comments


Britt tells Patrick the baby isn’t his, but Patrick calls her a liar and brings up the paternity test.  Britt admits the test was faked, and her mother helped her.  Britt was devastated when Patrick dumped her, and Dr. Obrecht suggested she have a child to bring them together.  Britt claims she loved Patrick, and wanted him to love her back.  Patrick demands to know the real father's identity.


AJ tells Michael he remembers taking the gun from the safe, and feels he needs to confess.  Diane arrives in time to tell him one never confesses to anything, and Tracy’s missing gun isn’t necessarily the gun that killed Connie.  Diane tells Michael to leave, so he can’t be called as a witness.  AJ is thrilled when Michael calls him "Dad".
 
Dante’s back at the hospital, and tells Lulu that Connie was murdered and Sonny found her.  Lulu remembers working for Connie, and understands she had a short, hard life.  Lulu wonders if Maxie knows, and feels she should be told. 
 
A nurse asks if Maxie is the baby’s mother, and Maxie admits she is.  When the nurse asks about breastfeeding, Maxie is ready to do it, until Spinelli interrupts. He takes Maxie back to her room.
 
Kiki complains to Morgan about her mother being a liar.  Ava shows up and informs them the cops picked up AJ for Connie’s murder, and are looking for the weapon.  Morgan decides he needs to go see Sonny, so Kiki opts to visit Franco in the hospital. 
 
After Kiki leaves, Ava is angry with Morgan for rushing into the wedding without telling her.  Morgan knew he had to marry Kiki before she saw the newspaper and chose Michael.  He admits he pretended he didn’t know the truth in advance.  He believes his marriage is safe, but Ava might tell Kiki the truth to try and repair their relationship.  Morgan panics and begs her not to tell Kiki.  Ava promises not to say anything, but only if he does something for her.  She puts her hand on his knee.  Morgan gives Ava his word, and she taunts he owes her one.

Kiki shows up at the station to offer Michael support.  She admits she lied to Morgan about where she was going, and asks if AJ did it.  Michael hopes AJ didn’t do it, but knows he had been drinking a lot.  Michael is worried about AJ. 
 
Diane asks what AJ remembers.  He remembers taking the gun and going to Connie’s office, and feeling very angry with her. However, he doesn’t remember pulling the trigger.  Diane tells him the evidence is circumstantial, and they don’t even have the weapon. 
 
Dante and Lulu head to the nursery to see the baby, and find the nurse feeding her a bottle.  They are upset with her, and explain they are the parents.  The nurse explains Maxie said she was the mother, and was going to breastfeed.  Dante tells her no one is allowed in the room other than them. 

Maxie begs Spinelli not to tell Lante she was going to feed the baby.  Spin admits Ellie told him the truth about their baby.  He wants her to make him understand how she could let Lulu and Dante fall in love with a baby that isn’t theirs. Maxie wanted to give Lante a baby, but her first instinct was to tell Spin the truth.  She mentions Ellie had forgiven him, and she couldn’t ruin what they had.  Maxie lied to Lante, because no one was supposed to know the truth. Suddenly, Lulu and Dante storm into the room.
 
As Morgan is leaving the boathouse to visit Sonny, he spots a gun in the bushes.

So, we have throw away lines that Franco is back in the hospital and Monica's at a conference in Argentina. Good to know!

Has anyone thought to test AJ's hands for gun powder residue?

I'm assuming Ava dumped the gun in the bushes and that's what she'll use as leverage on Morgan.

Still loving the Patrick/Britt scenes and I'm waiting anxiously for her answer as to who the baby daddy is.

Loved the Maxie/Spin scenes. Thought BA and KSt did bang up jobs. Maxie looks so sad. I love Lante, but gosh darn it, I want Maxie to have her daughter. Spin, not so much.

I want Maxie to have her baby but I fear Britt lied to her and she was carrying Lante's baby. These writers just love to change paternity.

Britt's baby will end up a Cassidine.

I loved Maxie and Spin and Dante and Lulu.

I do not care about Morgan.

I loved Britt and Patrick. Jason Thompson knows how to bring it. Kelly held her own which was great. Britt will pass the baby off as Nicolas' baby.

Maxie and Spin were really sad. When Spin was asking Maxie to please explain why I just began to tear up because it was so real and so raw. Bradford is very scary when he drops his voice. He deserves and Emmy for his acting this time around.

Lulu is getting on my last nerve and i hope next week they will reveal the truth about the baby.

Ava and Morgan was kind of creepy. She is stressed and needs some release and Morgan said he would do anything...Goodness is this the same little Morgan who was considered the good product of Sonny and Carly. But the best thing will be when Carly bitch slaps Ava. We know its coming...I usually do not root for Carly but this time I will. MW knows how to push the buttons.

I do not believe Ava left the gun on the premises. I still have a suspicion that Alice is somehow involved. These kinds of killings are never that obvious. It will usually end up being someone no one expected. They will have a back story where it will turn out that Connie had split after being confronted by AJ, knocked him out, was about to take him out and Alice showed up to make a plea for AJ and ELQ,Alice saw AJ lying on the floor with Connie standing over the body with a gun, she runs and drops Connie gun fly's out of her hand, they struggle to get the gun, gun goes off while Connie is left on the floor, Alice panics gets AJ and runs out. She attempted to drop AJ by the boat house so that Michael would not see him. While in the process she drops the gun. AJ was knocked out cold and doesn't remember a damn thing.

The scene that bothered me the most today was the heartless exterior of Diane. But then again Connie was not the real Kate Howard. The Kate Howard who was friends with Alexis Davis and Diane Miller is in Paris. Diane had met up with Kate on several of her trips abroad. I am creating an alternate story to the Kate Howard mythos. Kelly Sullivan was never the Kate Howard who walked into Sonnys' coffee shop dressed to kill demanding to make a very important phone call. Diane at the time was with Sonny and was in awe of Kate Howard the woman who dictated fashion. The woman whom Diane so admired for being one of the most influential people in the world as well as a very successful business woman. No ladies and gentlemen Kelly Sullivan was no Kate Howard, she was a poor imitation. That is why I am rewriting history. Kate Howard is in France running Couture Magazine. If you would like to know more about Kate Howards' dealings in Paris please let me know and I will be sure to give you the tid bits.

katehhoward...drop it. This alternate reality of yours is really kind of creepy. You spend waaay too much time thinking about this. They were actors portraying a role, that's all.

I am aware but I refuse to allow the memory of such an amazing character be desecrated. You have no idea what I was going through during those times. When Megan ward popped on the screen my life changed and I will forever be grateful for that. The character Kate hit close to home for me. I live in Brooklyn, went to catholic school, high school in Bensonhurst, always drempt of working in the city of lights in fashion. Kate Howard was whom I wanted to be. I may not be an EIC of a fashion mag but I am an avid fashion connoisseur. I make it my business to stay up to date with trends and upcoming designers. It may sound cliche but fashion is my passion. It may sound creepy but I related a lot to the Kate Howard character. Megan Ward did a great job portraying such an iconic persona.

Lulu and Dante are being really cold towards Maxie. It's as though they could care less that she almost died giving birth for them. I want the truth to come out so Maxie can have her baby, I don't give a crap about Lante. Even if Maxie wasn't the child's biological mother, how can you expect someone not to form an attachment with a living thing that's been apart of them for 9 months.

Thought the scenes with Michael, Diane and Aj were funny. Once again GH is on a roll, can't wait till next week!

Hi all. I have taken a hiatus from GH for not enjoying the show as much over the past few months but caught up on most of this week's episodes after reading that Maxie was giving birth. I'm glad I did. Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms were fantastic. Such capable actors often trapped in subpar story so it was great to watch them in strong story with strong dialogue.

I disagree re: Lante's coldness toward Maxie. I think they have been very grateful but reasonably concerned about Maxie's attachment to their baby. There is concern for Maxie's emotional health as well. I think Lante were much more calm than I would have been when learning that Maxie nearly breast fed their child! I would have had a police officer stationed outside of my baby's room 24/7 after learning of that.

I miss Julie Berman's interpretation of Lulu. Marcy Rylan just doesn't cut it for me. She's not a bad actress, she's just not Lulu for me.

I thought Dante was particularly cold when discussing Connie being dead. As was Diane given that she admired and befriended Kate. Her behavior under these writers seems odd and unpleasant. Diane used to be a lot of fun. No longer.

I just don't care about AJ. He grates on my nerves. I hate that he and Elizabeth are probably end-game.

I wish to never see Kiki or two hot guys obsess over her.

When will Ava jump Morgan's bones?! I so wish for that to happen ala OLTL's Dorian/Joey. Carly's head would explode. I really like Morgan and think the actor is good.

Kudos to the Patrick/Britt scenes. Really strong acting. We haven't seen Jason Thompson sink his teeth in a performance for the better part of the year being attached to the nothingness that is Sabrina. Imagine how much more impact the Patrick/Britt scenes would have been if they had actually been treated as an item? Sabrina serves no other purpose but to annoy.

I still believe that Britt is pregnant with Lulu and Dante's child. So whoever she names as the father will be a cover. I also somehow believe that Britt might find some kind of a redemption in maybe getting Robin back; turning on her mother when she finds out the reason why Obrecht was pushing her into Patrick's direction.

Somehow I started to expect that Ava seduces Morgan right then and there. LOL

The scenes between Michael, AJ and Diane were pretty good. As soon as Kiki admitted that she lied to Morgan to come see Michael, he should have told her to go back to her husband or finally start to consider an annulment. Otherwise what she's doing is just not fair.

I get that Dante and Lulu are worried about Maxie's behavior. Lulu feels insecure enough that she couldn't do what Maxie has done. It must feel even stranger to now see how attached Maxie seems. Yeah they seem a bit cold, but after Maxie already said that the baby is her's, I would react the same way.

I like Marcy/Emmy Rylan as Lulu. She's a great actress and will totally be Lulu by the end of Oct. or so. It takes a little while to make a well known character your own.

I loved Britt and Patrick as well. Sabrina needs to go. I'm sorry, but she and Patrick don't 'fit' together....at all IMO.

I absolutely LOVE Ava Jerome! I don't know who killed Connie, but I agree it is probably too obvious for it to be AJ or Ava. I hate that Kelly Sullivan is gone though. I think she is a great actress. I'm a huge DAYS fan and would love to see her come to Salem, USA.

I think it would help if they would stop using the name KIKI! Please call her Lauren or something!

At the end I dont like how Dante and Lulu went into Maxie's room. they looked as if they had a bone to pick with her cause Maxie said she was the baby's mother and wanted to feed her. Turning ugly. Britt's belly is going to fall out of that robe.

I think Dante will be the father of Britt's baby but it won't be Lulu's egg. The fertility issue was all Lulu, she had no more viable eggs and that's why Britt couldn't just "replace" the fetus Maxie lost with another of Lulu's fertilized eggs. But Britt probably still had Dante's sperm on ice and used that to impregnate herself. That sets up a nice custody battle between Dante and Lulu and Britt.

I love Gh! However, do miss the original Kate Howard character with Megan Ward in the role. I appreciate "KateHHoward's" comments!

Lulu's eggs were fine. The problem was a tilted uterus (or something), which meant she could get pregnant but not remain pregnant. She was told at the time that she'd miscarry.

Plus, Britt said there were three fertilized embryos and they implanted one in Maxie which left two to use at another time. (if my understanding of biology and infertility is correct!!)

I still say Britt had Dante's swimmers, and she used them with her own egg. Which is why Dr O is still thrilled because the baby is still Faison's grandchild. I can't see Dr O being thrilled about passing off a Corinthos/Spencer child as Faison's flesh and blood. It must be Britt's DNA in there.

Diane, Alexis, and Kate were friends. We had quite a few scenes of them bonding over their love of shoes. I miss that. Diane is turning into someone else under these writers. Sure, she can still be snappy and witty, but she's lost her heart.

I don't care about Lulu at all. I want Maxie to have her baby. BA's been on fire the past few episodes. It's too bad he couldn't have been written as a more well rounded character from the start. JT's been doing some awesome stuff lately also, some of these not as used actors come alive when they're actually given something to do and I love it.

I don't care who is the father of Britt's baby, as long as Lulus not the mom. I'd like to see Dante be able to have some chemistry with someone on the canvas besides the Spencer Princess. I think he'd fit in great in a triangle with Liz/Nic, or if they brought a new gal on him and Michael could try for her. I wouldn't mind it if Liz battled Lulu for Dante either. I'm sure he'd be great with Liz's boys.

tmac-L never had fertility issues. It was diagnosed that with her having a "bi-cornate" (heart shaped), uterus, she would not be able to carry to term. However, there has been medical evidence that there have been women who have carried to term with this condition. The way RC has chosen to write this story was to have L and D not "follow up"/get a second opinion as to where they might go before they decided on the surrogate route.

If I remember correctly, there were three fertilized embryos that were originally stored from the harvesting of L's eggs and D giving his sperm sample. There were those beautifully sweet and tender scenes where D wheeled L to the lab after the egg harvesting and they both watched Ellie doing the fertilization proceedure through the observation window.

I'm guessing, as I said in another thread, that Dr. O. wouldn't be interested in a detective from Brooklyn/PC, whose father is a silk suited thug, being a match for her brilliant physician daughter when she would have had access to "more suitable" (ie-Stavros), donars for her and Faison's grandchild.... Innocent

I am with you all...Although I like Emme Rylan, she just doesn't feel like Lulu. I miss JMB in the role. Emme has yet to establish chemistry with any of the other actors like JMB had. With that said I am really disappointed in Lante and their lack of interest in Maxie since delivering the baby. They know that Maxie almost died...yet they haven't even bothered to walk down the hall to see her in her room. Unbelievable to me that they would be such horrible friends. This was not the normal surrogacy situation. Maxie is not just their surrogate, she is Lulu's best friend. Maxie was NOT paid for her services, she did this incredibly selfless act out of the goodness of her heart. Yes Sonny gave Lante money for this surrogacy, but that was to pay for the procedure, not to compensate Maxie in any way. Yes Maxie has wronged them terribly by not telling them about the miscarriage, and the fact that the baby she carried was her own....but they don't know any of this at this time. All they know is that Maxie almost died doing this huge favor for them, and that she seems to have an unhealthy interest in the baby. Instead of wanting to help her deal with this, they are already going on the attack. Two very selfish jerks in my book. Getting her baby back is not going to be easy for Maxie. She signed papers, and as the legal parents of the baby, Lante does not have to agree to a DNA test. Eventually they will do the right thing...but not before there is suffering all around.

Great scenes with Britt and Patrick...Only possible fathers are Dante, Jax and Starvos. Dante and Jax because of the deposits and Starvos because of the clinic he was in with Dr O.

I see another redo of Joey and Dorian coming up with Ava and Morgan.

Counting the days until my Scorpio family is united.

I just don't get the context of Kiki hating her mother for lying to her and running to Franco, even using it as an excuse to lie herself and see Morgan.. her new husband of 2 weeks... brother.

Franco did nothing for her other than beg to have a relationship with Kiki. But Kiki didn't know about the guy until months ago and even then she discovered the evil and heinous crimes the man commited. SO your mother lied to you about who your father was. Up to the point that she discovers that Silas is actually her father, I would think the writers would have been writing Ava as Kiki's hero because she went to great lengths to keep her from a crazy man.

Then Kiki finds out Silas... a successful doctor with NO bed side manner... and he is actually the one saving Danny's life and YET Kiki wants more to do with the crazy pyscho killer?!

Sorry, even with a brain tumor any DA could argue that the removal of the tumor still does not negate his crimes.

So why is Kiki so much of a selfish brat lying to Morgan and seeing Michael but hating her mom for lying? Or hating Silas, again a successful doctor WHILE admiring Franco?

I don't know why everyone complains about missing certain conversations or scenes between characters. It's called faster storytelling which I happen to prefer over the drawn-out week long conversations during the Guza/Phelps era. It makes it more exciting and a lot more like prime time soaps. I also don't know why people complain about a saturated cast. Everyone's used fairly evenly and in rotation. Remember the good old Sonny show days with occasional Luke/Tracy scenes or Alexis would pop up every 5-7 times a month and it was mostly to be just a mother. And remember when Liz was a one-dimensional slut bag? I'll take the revolving door of a larger cast than we're used to if it means I get to see a very much grown-up Carly school her son Morgan the same way Bobbie did with her, or see how smoothly they've been able to gap decades and generations of GH characters, stories and fans while making it all still timely and applicable to modern day. So, call the cast saturated but don't forget that in turn we also see characters and stories that are saturated and well-rounded. We see Sonny as more of a man than a criminal, Liz is a mother and a friend and a woman with a lot of pain inside her as well guilt from actions past, Nik is back to the borderline selfish Prince he was in his glory days. Yes, I know that the show flirts with camp a lot but the cast looks fun doing it and I need to remember its a soap. I haven't loved GH this much since I first started watching in 93! TPTB really know what they're doing and honoring so much of GH's past. I'm hooked and don't want to ever miss a single episode. A year and a half ago I would've been fine watching once a week.

The Maxie/Lulu/Dante story mixed with Connie's death is a bit off balanced for me. Lulu's reaction was sort of like how I would feel if a colleague was killed. Nice person but I only worked with them.

Connie was her mother's best friend and first cousin. There should be more emotion. Especially from Dante. It just seems like a whole lot happening in one hour without a whole lot of devotion to one big story so having 4 huge ones seem to lessen the impact of all of them.

Connie's murder and AJs arrest.

maxie's baby.

Britt's kid

And anything with Ava, etc.

I read spoilers that lab tech Brad is Britts baby daddy! Although it'll turn out that brad got cold feet and switched his swimmers for someone else's.

Overall happy with the show...even though I'm extremely annoyed with Lante...

Maybe Britt really is pregnant with a Lante baby, since there were already fertilized embryos "ready to go"/implant, when her Mutter suggested a baby to hold on to Patrick. Maybe Britt didn't tell Mama O that it wasn't her own egg she used and that's why Mama O thinks it will truly be a Faison grandbaby....

Can't imagine Britt would use either Brad or Dante as sperm donor. Stavros as the daddy...ooh, that's just too creepy.

The show has been very clear that Britt is the mother and the father is ?

No to Liz and Dante. No to Liz and Michael!

I use to love the friendship between Alexis, Diane and Kate (MW) and GH just had to dismantle the relationship. Diane and Max always made me smile.

Hmmmm. Spinelli is such a hypocrite! He had the chance to tell Lulu the truth about the baby and he kept his mouth shut.

Patrick was on fire with Britta!

I like Britta and hope the baby turns out to be Stavros'!

Ava and Morgan need to hit the sheets and watch Carly's head explode in a fit of rage.

I think the writers still want the same interaction between RoHo/KA which is why we have KiKiStarr still concerned about Franco. Has KikiStarr even sat down to talk to Silas after finding out that he and not a serial killer is her father?

Awe. Michael called AJ "Dad"!

Hi all, not sure if i ever posted here, but there was something with my e-mail so i guess i did Smile But very dumb handle, so I'm not sure Smile

I wonder what is going to happen with Spin/Maxie/poor li'l un-named baby girl, especially since he has been moved to "recurring" status (Boo!)Does that mean Spinelli is going away? Their stuff Friday was really good, you can tell he's a Dad in real life.

Anyway, there was a 'missing' embryo that was a Falconeri baby-to-be i think, i heard a lot of chatter that Britt is carrying that baby, so now everyone gets a baby (except Britt) and is happy, wee. Is it just me or is Lulu just SO ungrateful?? As far as she knows, that's her baby. Maxie carried the baby, charged them no money (maybe Dante and Lulu paid her doc bills at least?) had a c-section and almost DIED giving birth and she's in trouble for visiting the baby in the nursery? If i had a surrogate i would absolutely love for her to nurse my baby, babies need Mother's milk! It's not like Lulu is over there lactating.

The Cassidine theory is definitely possible, but then where is the other embryo? And i feel weird talking about frozen embryos, that just gives me the heebie jeebies.

Morgan is horrible! Ick! Kiki sure liked him before Michael showed up - they have changed her character SO much in way too short a time, she was such a tough chick and now she's....well, she's Starr with brown hair pretty much. Ava and Morgan can both go far away, as far as i'm concerned. Smile (and she totes killed Connie, which makes me dislike her even more!!)
