G.H. Commentary by
General Hospital’s Top Ten
These past couple of GH days have been exceptional.
10. Alcazar Shooting. Alcazar is holding a gun at Sonny, having him at a
totally disadvantage. Of course Alcazar has to go into a mini-monologue and
right before he shoots, Carly barges into the room. Lo is distracted giving
Sonny the opportunity to grab his gun and shoot and the camera pans to a
shocked Carly, looking down on the ground. Here I thought Carly getting shot
in the head was a good one. Alcazar’s shooting was very tense and well done.
9. Sam/Liz Spat. Sam comes “home” to Jason’s penthouse and finds Liz scarf
there. For a moment I was afraid. There is no telling what she could do. I
mean she already broke out of prison and became a fugitive over some
pictures that Ric showed her, so what would finding Liz’s scarf do? Well, it
wasn’t long before she reacted. She rushes out and at the hospital goes
after Liz. Liz, probably not wanting to lose her job, tries to move past the
altercation with as little fanfare as possible but it doesn’t work because
Sam’s yelling soon gathers an audience of Ms. Sneed and Epiphany. Too bad
Lucky wasn’t around to hear about Liz and Jason then this whole baby debacle
could be out in the open. Anyway, Sam is shooting out looks of death to
anyone who gets in her way and eventually ends up quitting. Next to a
Robin/Carly and Liz/Carly spat, this one was quite entertaining. Of course
Carly is not to be outdone (see number 2).
8. Epiphany/Sneed Spat. After bearing witness to the Liz/Sam exchange of
words, the awful Ms. Sneed decides to handle the situation. Epiphany jumps
in and lets Ms. Sneed know that under no uncertain terms will she overstep
her bounds by writing any of her nurses up. Ms. Sneed just can’t catch a
break. I would not want to be the administrator for General Hospital.
7. Dillon embracing his Q genes unbeknownst to them. Dillon explains to Lulu
that his family is deranged and the only way to deal with them is to play by
their rules which he easily does by calling a “family meeting” to act as a
distraction so that Lulu can search the house for Rick Webber’s stolen date
book. Everyone thinks Dillon has gotten soft but he is just besting them at
their own game. I absolutely loved Dillon in full Q mode.
6. Maxi just might be right. For the first time in years, Maxi just might be
right about something- Professor Pete is conning Georgie. Of course this is
speculation on my part, but isn’t the writing on the wall. He is attracted
to Georgie and is not only interested in her “research.”
5. Quatermaine family meeting. It doesn’t matter why they get together,
having the Quatermaines in one room together is always a treat. Edward is
the greatest patriarch around.
4. Carly asking anyone to marry her. At the PCPD, Carly blabs off to Ric
that she saw everything that happened during the shooting. Of course she
didn’t. She only saw enough to incriminate Sonny. In order to avoid sending
Sonny to jail and herself going up on criminal charges, she has to what?
Marry Sonny of course. So she spends a couple of days running frantically
trying to avoid any discussion of marrying Sonny even to the point of asking
Max to marry her.
3. Alice and Spinelli wrestle. I knew there was a reason why I loved Alice,
her being able to handle the Qs notwithstanding. She is a wrestler! What a
hidden talent that will sure to serve well in the Q household. She even
tried one of her knew moves on Spinelli who happens to be a fan.
2. Carly and Sky get into it. When Carly went to see Sky about the shooting
in hopes of getting her to get Lorenzo to drop charges, she didn’t bargain
for the venom spewing out of the new mother. Sky was taking no prisoners as
she angrily vowed revenge against Carly, Sonny, and anyone else who dared to
mess with her man. She even grabbed Carly by the arm at one point. It was a
great scene, and although misplaced, it was nice to see some fire coming
1. Sonny’s feeling are hurt. I believe this quote from Sonny to Jason
explains why this was a great moment. "She's acting as though marrying me
signals the apocalypse coming, and I gotta be honest with you … it hurts my
feelings a little bit."
Some of the best scenes of late and the week isn’t even over yet.
