General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Brenda and Alec walk into Sonny’s office and find the dead body.  Brenda screams and yanks Alec out of the room, while Sonny checks out the problem.  Brenda and Alec are sent home and Sonny calls Dante to piece together what might have happened.  Sonny blames Anthony, but Dante wonders if Sonny could be guilty.  Sonny points out that if he’d done it, the body wouldn’t have been found and certainly not left in his office for Brenda to find. 

Dante wants Sonny to let the police deal with things and wonders what's going on. Sonny thinks Anthony is covering his tracks and has an ulterior motive. He believes something much bigger is going on. 

Shawn has a check up with Patrick about an old war injury.  Patrick feels a surgery is needed, but Shawn angrily says he isn’t interested, which raises a flag for Patrick about PTSD. Patrick tells Shawn he should seek treatment for it, as Carly listens in.

Once Carly and Shawn are home, Carly tries to bring up what happened with Patrick. However, Shawn doesn’t want to discuss it and heads off to make plans for an outing with Josslyn.  Tracy shows up wondering where Luke is, and wants to know if Carly helped him.  Carly swears she doesn’t know Luke's whereabouts and doubts he’ll come back.  Tracy says she needs to find him, but Carly brings up that she knew who Luke was when she married him and can’t change the rules now.  Carly says she’s going through that with Jax, but Tracy points out that Luke’s in denial and his drinking is out of control.

Jax asks to meet with Robin to see if she’d be willing to testify for him against Carly.  He mentions the danger of Sonny and Jason.  Robin tells him that she’s a friend of both, but Jax says she doesn’t let Emma hang out with them.  Robin doesn’t agree with Jax’s plan to have Carly visit her daughter and not live with her.  Jax says he always thought Carly would distance herself from Sonny and Jason, especially now since Josslyn is in the picture.  Robin feels Carly is a good mother and she refuses to say that she isn’t. 

Maxie stops by the Star to see Lulu, who explains about Luke leaving rehab.  Lulu wants Maxie’s help to redecorate the Star, but Maxie thinks it won’t bring Luke back.  Maxie understand about father’s leaving, but Lulu dismisses that saying it’s not the same as the Frisco and Felicia situation.  She feels Luke needs a reason to come back, but Maxie thinks Lulu needs to accept that he might not.
