General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Michael receives the daily newspaper, which headlines the Ferncliff escape.  When Starr doesn’t seem overly upset, he wonders if she wants Todd to get away. However, Starr quickly denies it.  Michael decides to head to the courthouse to support Kristina, even though Sonny will be there.

John updates the officers about the escapees, and reminds them Todd and Heather are dangerous.  Sam tells him Danny is with Monica, and John is exasperated Ferncliff hasn’t been able to contain Todd and Heather.  John receives the forensic report from the weapon used to kill Alison, and discovers his own partial print is on it.  He wonders if Rafe may be telling a bit of the truth.    

Todd, Heather and Lucy find themselves hiding out at Windermere.   Todd quickly discovers some clothes and heads out.  Lucy reads the paper, and comes across an article about Alison’s death.  Lucy's upset she wasn’t able to protect Alison, but knows she needs to protect Rafe from Caleb.   Lucy realizes everything she thought would happen is coming true. She wants to go to Rafe as soon as possible. Heather stops Lucy and reminds her she’ll be caught. Heather feels they need to work together. 

Rafe is Johnny’s new cell neighbor, as Johnny awaits transport for his sentencing hearing.  Johnny’s curious about Rafe killing his own mother, but Rafe claims McBain did it.  Johnny admits he killed his grandfather, and hiding the truth is the worst punishment. Johnny is taken away for his hearing, as Rafe denies killing Alison. 

Alexis takes Kristina to her arraignment.  Kristina runs into Johnny at the courthouse, and explains to him how she tried to kill Connie.  Johnny understands the feeling and wishes her luck. 

Olivia stops by Connie’s office to talk about Heather being at large again.  Connie reassures her Heather will be caught in no time.  Olivia wants to talk about Kristina.  Connie says Kris tried to kill her.  Olivia points out Kris is still grieving over Trey. She believes Connie is only trying to get back at Sonny through his daughter.  

Olivia cares about her cousin, and feels sending Kristina to prison will not solve anything.  She doesn’t want Connie to ruin Kris’ life, and earn Sonny’s hatred.  Olivia wishes Connie would honor her son, and let Kristina go.  

Sonny’s concerned about Kristina, and Shawn wonders if his boss wants him to take care of Connie.  Sonny knows they can't kidnap Connie twice. He confesses the first time he was desperate to get through to Kate.  Shawn wonders if Sonny has gone soft, or if he has a thing for Connie.

Molly sneaks in to see Rafe, and offers her condolences. Then, she asks if he did it, based on what he said to her at the diner.  Rafe swears he loved his mother and would never do anything to hurt her.  He stresses he saw McBain do it.  He asks if Molly believes him.  Before Molly can answer, the guard sends her away. 

Todd shows up at Starr’s apartment and begs her not to call the police.  He needed to see her one last time, because he can't go to prison.  Todd says the only thing that kept him sane when he was kidnapped was the hope he’d see her again.  Todd admits he made a mess, but this is goodbye.  Starr realizes she’ll never see him again.  The two hug and say they love each other before Todd leaves.   Todd heads to his office for something in his safe, which is now gone.

John wonders if there really is a Caleb, since Rafe claims to have seen someone who looked like him. Also, Alison and Lucy both thought he was the vampire.  He gets a call about an abandoned car by the Quartermaine Mansion, and Sam’s heads out to check on it.  

TJ shows up at the station, looking for Molly. He finds her and becomes angry when he discovers she went to see Rafe.  

Michael gets to the courthouse, and runs into Johnny.  He asks if Johnny gave the ELQ information to Sonny, but Johnny says he would never help Sonny. 

Inside the courtroom, Michael offers Kristina his best wishes and takes a seat beside Sonny.  Sonny is glad Michael came, and swears he didn’t leak the ELQ story. 

Olivia arrives, and informs Sonny she talked to Connie, but isn’t sure she helped.  The judge asks Kristina how she pleads, as Connie enters the courtroom and declares not guilty.  

Starr arrives for Johnny’s hearing, and wishes him a lengthy prison sentence.  

John talks to Rafe, and tells him that he didn’t kill Alison.  Rafe didn’t either, so John wonders who did.  

Lucy finds some clothes at Windermere, but decides to take a nap before heading out to look for Caleb.  Heather waits until she’s asleep before slipping out.  Caleb shows up, as Lucy’s wakes.
