"GH" Rundown for the week of March 25-29:
This week the show accelerated into the fast lane turning into a bit of a trilogy of terror. The Haunted Star turned up on the list of things missing from Port Charles along with Lulu, Nikolas was shot and was unable to tell Luke what he knew about Lulu, and Britt was making plans with her evil mother, Dr. Obrecht, while trying to avoid contact with her father. Pleasantly for this viewer, the mysteries just kept piling up.
Evil is as evil does.
The biggest mystery outside of who kidnapped Lulu and shot Nikolas was who is Britt’s father and what was her and her mother planning for Dr. Patrick Drake? Also, what does Nikolas know? "GH" seems to be pulling out all the stops in these major storylines leading up to the Nurses’ Ball and it is hard to not want to watch. It seems like Helena or Jerry Jacks is just too easy of an answer for all the suspense invading Port Charles. Even after Luke and Laura confronted Helena, we still don't know if she has Lulu and it is clear she had nothing to do with Nikolas getting shot.
The show was not without its dull or annoying moments. The tiresome back and forth of Patrick thinking about Sabrina or Felix and Liz coaching Sabrina and Patrick about the other has hopefully run its course. Unfortunately viewers will probably have a few more episodes of this until Robin returns…if she returns. More tiresome was Felix pouting over Sabrina hooking up with Milo for all of 30 seconds, I mean really, that relationship isn’t even out of the gate, oh, wait, more importantly Milo isn’t even gay. Did Carly really need to spell that out to Felix?
Unrequited love of children.
Here’s an area that needs some serious consideration. Some people in this world don’t want kids; it’s their right to choose that lifestyle. This is not something that goes away over time. It is hard to tell if "GH" is working a PSA here as they have on other issues, or if they just want to free Spin up for Maxie. Whatever the case may be, they would do well to tread lightly on this issue. It was impressive so far to have both Tracy and AJ support Ellie and Spin respectively. Each has someone in their court and the advice stand your ground is the only way for the couple to sort this issue out. If they both don’t take a stance, then someone will get hurt later by falsely believing if you love someone enough, they will change to accommodate you.
