Perkie’s Observations: Justice is Served on General Hospital

Anna and Dr. Obrecht square off against each other, while the confused guard stands off to the side.  Anna insists she is the correct person, and figures Dr. O is wearing a mask.  She tries to explain to the guard Faison has also worn a mask to impersonate someone, but Dr. Obrecht claims Anna is the imposter.  The guard forces them to drop their guns, but Liesl grabs hers and shoots him.  She and Anna fight until Anna knocks Liesl out.  Faison lets himself out of his holding room.

Robin tries to communicate to Patrick, but the phone reception is poor.  Robin does manage to say she’s alive, and needs Patrick’s help.  Before she loses the connection, Robin also tells Patrick she has his son.  Then, Robin’s phone battery dies. 

Tracy informs Jerry that only Luke will be getting the cure.  Jerry is certain Tracy wouldn’t shoot him, but she assures him she would, in memory of Alan and Edward.  Jerry tries to explain the cure may kill Luke, but Luke mentions he’s dying anyway. Tracy injects the entire syringe into Luke. 

Felix and Sabrina discuss her relationship.  He feels Patrick is ready to fight for her, but Sabrina worries things still aren’t right. She knows Patrick is still thinking of Robin. 

Nik is shocked to hear Faison is Britt’s father.  Britt tells Nik her mother is obsessed with Faison, and is certain Ben is with them. Nik wonders why she didn’t tell him the truth sooner, but Britt felt embarrassed by her family.  Nik assures her that his is no better.  Britt apologizes for lying to him, but Nik feels she’s a good friend.  The two rewatch the video, and Nikolas recognizes the painting in the background. He deduces Dr. Obrecht and Ben are on Cassadine Island. 

Anna demands answers from Faison about Robin. She asks him if Robin is alive.  At first, Faison claims Robin is dead, but Anna tells him Robert is alive and remembers seeing her.  Anna asks if Faison got Dr. Obrecht to hide Robin for him.  Faison wonders if telling her the truth will anger her, or turn him into her hero.  Anna begs him to tell her the truth on his love for her. 

Faison admits Robin is alive.  Anna wonders why he would take Robin, and Faison admits he thought Anna would love him if he brought Robin back to her.  Anna demands to know where Liesl has taken Robin.  Faison tells her to get him out of prison, and they’ll find Robin together.  Dr. Obrecht comes to and knocks Anna out. 

Patrick desperately tries to find out who called him and from where.  Sabrina sees him upset, and he frantically tells her Robin just called him. He needs to tell Anna immediately.  Sabrina stops him, and assures him it must have been someone other than Robin.  Patrick is certain it was Robin’s voice, because he recognized it. However, he eventually realizes it’s not possible. 

Jerry tries to stop Tracy, so she shoots him in the shoulder.  Luke and Tracy leave, and lock Jerry in the room. 

Robin tries to recharge the battery by rubbing it against a blanket, and manages to get a bit of juice from it. However, Jerry arrives and takes his phone back.  Robin insists on being let go, since she found his cure.  Jerry informs Robin he doesn't have the cure, because it was taken from him. Now, he needs her to get him another one.

Dr. Obrecht convinces Faison he has no future with Anna, and needs to make his escape with her. Then, they can go to their grandson.  She wants Faison to have a future with her, instead of being Anna’s prisoner. 

When Anna comes to, the guard tells her Liesl and Faison have escaped.

    Giant kudos to both Finola Hughes and Jason Thompson. Excellent work by both.

    Wow, that’s a wonderful maximum security prison that Faison just walked out of. Eeesh!

    Loving Britt/Nik together. Now, Nik needs to call Anna and tell her where Dr. O is so that they can all converge on Cassadine Island and rescue my girl.

    I cannot wait for the Anna/Robin reunion and the Robin/Patrick one.

    There are episodes where all one can do is just sit and revel in amazement and this was one of those episodes. It was epic. Finola Hughes continues to bring it and I mean the difference between her acting as Dr. O and Anna’s devastation had differences which were apparent. Even though there were things that did not make sense the acting was amazing.

    I would love to see Faison, Stavros and the Jerome’s team up to take over Port Charles. That would be huge. I think a scene between Faison and Sonny would be so interesting. Anders Hove did such an amazing job taunting Anna it was sheer genius on his acting. “Give me a kiss.” Faison is truly demented. Brilliant acting. It would be incredible to have that acting caliber brought in with the other actors. I would definitely like to see an evil legion rise on GH. We should take it back a bit more and just see if Stavros wants to freeze the world again. ITS A SOAP NOT REAL LIFE.

    I fell in love once more with Robin when she was on the phone with Patrick. I can’t really see Robin alone without Patrick. Jason was incredible.

    Every Sabrina hater is going to come out today. I did shriek when Felix suggested Sabrina take Patrick to Puerto Rico. I was hoping we would get some PR location shoots. It has been a while since we have had scenes filmed out of the studio. Its expansive but I want GH to start getting funded and bringing back the days of location shoots. Lets go BIG.

    Finola upfront and amazing! Plus a side nod to her twin (they probably couldn’t say her name because Alex is an AMC character). Faison, just an amazing actor. And Patrick actually hearing Robin’s voice!! The only downside that it looks like no Anna today!

    I haven’t seen Friday’s show yet, and I came in partway through Monday’s when Anna was fighting her doppelganger. My first thought was how incredibly cheesy that scene was, and I was glad there were no non-soap fans around. It would be so easily ridiculed by the uninitiated.

    My second thought was that I wished Anna was fighting her twin sister, Alex. I was disappointed when it turned out to be the predictable thing: Dr. O. I do not enjoy it when the superlative Finola Hughes gets stuck playing scenes such as these. Those masks are a horrible plot device. I would have enjoyed the show much more if it were camped up a bit. The same goes for the Tracy scenes. I just can’t accept her as a sudden superspy, and a little humor would have made it all a bit easier to swallow.

    By the way, a question for the AMC fans. Now that Dimitri is back in Pine Valley, did they explain why he and Alex Devane are no longer together?

    I have to say, sometimes Ron C’s writings can be a bit “cartoony” and over-the top. The whole Anna versus Anna (Dr.O) was over the top, but thanks to Finola H’s great performance, as always, it was believable. FH should get an Emmy nod this year, the tears, grabbing Faison’s face and begging to hear the truth about Robin. An amazing actress!!! And I just think Dr.O is the best villian. Her and Faison make the cartoony type story believeable.
    Why am I finding Tony Geary as Luke so annoying lately? Is it just me? I LOVED Luke and Laura, from the early days of the 80’s, the whole on-the-run story, the Wyndmere store dance, and their wedding, but, to me, TG is just getting old and his acting seems over the top. I’d rather see more of Laura, Scotty and Lucy, and may-be if TG retires they can afford these actors. Just my opinion.

    Finola is amazing. She is the best actress in daytime television. Those scenes with her and Faision were perfection. I agree Cartoony did do his usual campy antics but Finola made everything right.

    1) What kind of prison can allow gun shots and NO ONE comes for minutes to investigate. There are no lockdowns and Faison just walks out with Dr. O. Horrible prison.

    2)I need that mask Dr. O was wearing. If it can make you lose 20 lbs just by putting it on, I need that mask.

    3)When Sabrina was trying to tell Patrick that it was all in his head, I kept waiting for Patrick to yell “Get Behind Me Satan!”. GAWD she pissed me off in those scenes. Patrick knows his wife’s voice.

    4)Pls give Felix something to do. His little nicknames aren’t funny anymore and him listening to Sabrina boring love life 24/7 is not entertaining. Get him away from Sabrina. With Liz, Lucy, Carly he is fun. Sabrina brings him down.

    6)I also wouldn’t mind of Luke died. He is annoying and I want Tracy to have a real romance. I just don’t see it with Luke.

    7)When Jerry was yelling for the guards to get Tracy/Luke, I was cracking up. If 60-something yr old Tracy can sneak on Cassadine Island full of guards AND dock SS Lila at the island without being seen, then I know for a fact Tracy could walk out with sick Luke a free man.

    8)Thank goodness Nik recongized that picture. Now he can call and tell Anna about the picture and Anna can stop and PICK UP ROBERT so they both can find Robin at the same time. I want Robin to see both her parents. I also want old Britt back. That’s why this baby storyline should have been wrapped up BEFORE they decided to pair Britt/Nik. Hearing her whine and cry all day is not the Britt I love. I miss scheming Britt and her witty comebacks.

    Isn’t Steinmauer supposed to be a maximum security prison? You can leave that place easier than Ferncliff.
    Otherwise I have to agree, Finola Hughes was amazing. She really is one of the best if not the best actress in Daytime.

    I loved that Patrick recognized Robin’s voice, hated that Sabrina had to stop him before he could tell someone other than her. Sabrina should see the signs. Alive or not, Patrick isn’t ready to move on.

    Tracy deserves someone better than Luke. He’s walking out on her anyway when Geary leaves for his next vacation.

    Love Nik/Britt but yeah lets bring some of that bitchiness back soon.

    TREMENDOUS acting by Finola!!! Marvelous!!!! You could see the seething hatred Ulbrecht has for Anna through Finola’s facial expressions. Just marvelous!! And Yes: I HATE SABRINA!!!!!!!!!! Even MORE so than I did before after this episode, and that’s saying something!!! (see my posting titled; “Top Ten Ways to Kill off Sabrina on GH.”

    Yet another doppelganger story line in the soap world…[/quote]

    I wouldn’t call it a doppelganger story. It was a plot twist for two episodes that acted as a nod to Faison impersonating Duke last year. Nothing more.

    TV Gord…David Hayward was actually with Anna, not Alex. They married but broke up after the death of their daughter, Leora. Anna left Pine Valley shortly thereafter.

    Alex Devane was married to Dimitri Marrick when he left Pine Valley; he came back this summer but I don’t know if they addressed the fact that Alex wasn’t with him.

    And I still hold out hope that I will get to see Vincent Irizarry on GH as Dr. David Hayward. He and Finola Hughes had great chemistry and a David-Anna-Duke triangle would be hot. Plus GH could use a bit of Heyward style villainy.

    And loved loved loved Finola doing Obrecht mannerisms as Fake Anna.

    Daniel St. John, I seriously doubt you’ll get your wish. Vincent Irizarry appears to be the male lead of the AMC reboot, and I don’t see Prospect Park letting him go. It appears AMC will go on for at least another season so Dr. David will be staying put in PV. And even if the show does shut down again I don’t see Prospect Park ever agreeing to lend AMC or OLTL characters to GH (and I doubt ABC would want them). Too much bad blood there.

    Daniel St. John may get his wish. If Thorsten Kaye is with Bold and the Beautiful right now, Dr. Hayward could come back to GH. I think that whole Prospect Park thing is done and over. Although I think TPTB at GH are so invested in Anna/Duke, Anna/Robert that they wouldn’t bring on another guy for her. I think they are sticking to GH history since they messed up with that whole AnaL thing.

    Thanks, tmac, but I didn’t bring up David. I was asking about Dimitri and Alex. :-)

    [quote=Jagger1966]On AMC Dimitri did say that he and Alex are divorced now.[/quote]

    Thanks, Jagger. :-)
