General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



A lot of dialogue from the Spencer boys today.  It’s always hard to paraphrase a recap on days like that. 

Lucky tells Luke he thought he was helping, but realized he was punishing his father too hard. He needs Luke to understand how much he needs him.  Luke blows Lucky off, saying he’s not interested in anything Lucky has to say.  Lucky admits he latched onto his father’s drinking when he lost Jake and forced the recovery onto his father. However, he loves Luke and needs him in his life, as do Lulu, Ethan and Tracy.  He asks Luke to come home. 

Luke wonders what he’d be coming home to. He feels Lucky doesn’t know who he really is, but has an idea of who he wants his father to be.  Luke says he’s not a hero, but a lousy husband and father against his will.  He tried to make a clean exit, but Lucky had to hunt him down. To make things crystal clear, Luke tells his son he’s not going home. 

Lucky understands his father is angry with him, but he’s not giving up.  Luke says everyone is trying to change him, which Lucky denies, but Luke says this is who he is.  Luke tells Lucky he never wanted to be a father or have responsibility, but he met Laura and fell in love.  He informs his son that he’s going to live until he dies and no one will slow him down.

Lucky asks if his father is through with him. He's sorry he interrupted Luke’s beautiful life, but Lulu and Ethan don’t deserve that.  Luke says he regrets running down Jake and causing Lucky and Liz so much pain, but now he’s beyond redemption and it’s liberated him.

He would never betray her again. When Robin shows up and wonders what the boys are talking about, Coleman complains about Kate and commitment. Robin points out that fidelity is a big deal and if he’s going to say it, he has to mean it.

Brenda eats it up, until Anthony starts talking about Sonny and introduces himself.  Brenda brings up Claudia, and Anthony claims Sonny used his daughter, turned on her and made her snap.  Anthony asks where Brenda’s guards are and thinks their absence is a lack of judgment on Sonny’s part. He hopes she doesn’t end up like Claudia.

Hooker Lupe returns to the room, and finds Luke playing with a gun.  He tells her he never wanted to be a father, because of his father, but admits that loving Lucky was the easiest thing he’s ever done because Lucky wasn’t like him, he was better.  He allows Lupe to take the gun from him, as he continues to tell her how he taught Lucky all of his survival skills.  Then, everything changed once he got into a car and killed Lucky’s son. Luke feels he put Lucky in an impossible position of forgiving him by accidentally killing his son. Now, he's taken out Lucky’s heart and stomped on it, to free him of his father.
