The Doctor’s Order – GH

gourmez3By Becca

So what else has happened in the last month of General Hospital? Robin’s left town again, Brad found himself in a romantic triangle, AJ found out who really shot Connie and promptly got shot himself, and Ric Lansing slithered his way back into town. What’s next, a return of Casey the Alien?

Another month has passed since my last column. Carly was rescued, Luke was possibly brainwashed, Ric Lansing came back to town, Robin left town, Anna continued to deflect suspicions about Faison’s death, and Sonny tried not to take as much delight in shooting AJ as he wanted to. Most importantly, though, we still don’t know whether Emma wants Spencer or Cameron more!

While I’m still digesting the hilarious pairing of Victor Cassadine and Dr. Obrecht, enjoying how much more exciting jail scenes are when suspects can talk to each other through their bars, and wondering why anyone would ever want to bring Jason Morgan back, let’s talk a bit about secrets. Bobbie tried to keep Lucas’s father a secret, Sabrina caved on keeping her own secret after a few weeks, and Felicia is attempting to keep Lucy’s affair with Scotty a secret. Perhaps Felicia should learn from the first two?

Yet again, the mob has taken over General Hospital. Morgan’s caught in a battle of loyalties between the Jeromes and his father. Olivia’s throwing her weight around to support Sonny. Both Lucas and Brad discovered their fathers are mob heads—seriously, Brad’s dad too? Where did that even come from? But at least the show is delving into the weightier matter of living in constant violence. That’s especially apparent in Duke’s story, which came to a heartbreaking apex on Tuesday.

So we’re in a mob war on General Hospital. Did I miss 2014 and end up back in 2011, the last time there was a mob war in town? It was the Balkan then, and if you don’t remember him, then, well, you’re blessed enough to probably have forgotten most of Brenda Barrett’s last stay in town. I wish I had your memory, though I’ve discovered my own selective one is becoming quite handy these days. For instance, there’s something familiar about Scotty being scorned by his old friend and lover, Lucy Coe, in favor of her one true love, something about the same thing happening to him with another old love just this summer…maybe someone he was married to? It’s all very fuzzy, but it’s sure easier to enjoy the show that way.

This column originally had a heartfelt introduction about how traumatic the Baby Connie custody battle has been. That heartfelt introduction still exists; it’s just coming later in the column because I watched Monday’s episode of General Hospital and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard at this show as I did when Juan Santiago showed up with a dress for his cousin Sabrina.

What a difference two weeks makes! There’s been genuine forward momentum in each of General Hospital’s current storylines, so much so that I’ll need two columns to talk about it all! In this one, I cover the small but sure steps a couple of relationships have taken. The show may have found a way for me to enjoy Franco, and I can feel myself investing in Alexis and Derek already. But that’s not all my friends. For the first time since Lucky, I find myself enjoying one of Sam’s relationships. That’s a miracle in and of itself.

I’m a week behind in my GH viewing, so apologies if none of this is pertinent anymore…but let’s be real. It’s still a soap opera; I can’t have missed that much forward momentum, right? I never knew I wanted Cesar Faison dressed as Beetlejuice for Halloween, but oh, oh, I did. It’s like the Powers that Be looked deep into my ridiculous soul and crafted him just for me.

Halloween events happen and Robin’s spied by a pair of eyes!

General Hospital became an action flick last week with women in the role of kick-ass hero, and I loved it! Our writers get that you can’t have a Scorpio storyline without scenes that hanker back to GH’s glory days of ridiculous spy stories. They get that linking Luke’s kidnapping and poisoning with Cesar Faison and Jerry Jacks makes for a wide-ranging storyline that affects nearly the whole canvas. They get that Robin doesn’t have to have spy training to fight her way out of a situation, but using her brain is just as effective. And I’ve enjoyed every second of this plot, even the ones that hurt.

Drag me behind a truck by my hands. Tie me to the railroad tracks. Force me into a pit full of vipers. Make Courtney Matthews rise from the dead. You could do any of these horrifying things, but my opinion wouldn’t change. I love Morgan with Ava.

The cat is out of the bag, or is it the jackal out of the carriage? I can’t keep it straight. But thank the soap gods Brad spilled the beans about baby Connie because I could barely watch the farce of both Maxie and Spinelli agreeing to godparent their own child.

Those of you who have read my column in the past two years know few things could bring me greater joy than the gift General Hospital gave us recently. That gift, of course, was the death of Connie Falconeri. It’s only the second time this incarnation of Kate Howard has delighted me. The first was a moment I will forever treasure: her unforgettable slaughtering of Sonny’s birthday cake.

I apologize for how long it’s taken for me to get another column up. But I am settled into the Bay Area now, and the more amazing feat is that I’ve caught up on the show! These past two months have been packed with paternity reveals for everyone in Port Charles, and lawd knows I have opinions on them.

Becca’s GHFCW: Girls’ Night In

My move is over (if you can count it as over without the moving truck here yet). So I finally had time to get my last write-up from the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend up! Girls’ Night In with Emily Wilson and Teresa Castillo was the perfect end to this jam-packed weekend of events. I have only two words to tease you with: Pajama Party!
