The GH Rant from August 18 - 22:
This week was a somewhat slow week in Port Charles compared to last week. Nevertheless we got to see Tracy get what was coming to her, a Carly and Sonny hookup, more Skype time with Fluke, and Sabrina’s return. Let’s discuss what happened on “General Hospital.”
Pizza and wine.
In last week's blog I discussed how I hoped that Carly would use her head and show Sonny the door. Unfortunately she did exactly the opposite and showed him to her bed, after a lovely meal of pizza and wine. Not only did Carly screw Sonny, she literally screwed him if Franco ever finds out the truth. Franco could simply go psycho and kill Sonny, or he could expose Sonny’s secret to Michael that Sonny killed AJ. Not only would Michael hate Sonny, he’d likely hate his mother for keeping it from him as well. What was Carly thinking? Though Carly’s choice was a poor one, it did make for some humorous scenes with Franco running around her place looking for Sonny. His impersonation of Jack Nicholson in “The Shining” when he burst through Carly’s front door screaming "Honey I'm home!" was great. Many fans seem to be on board for a Sonny and Carly reunion, I personally think they work better as friends and co-parents. What are your thoughts?

Make a choice!
Nikolas continued to be a man of indecision this week. It seemed we finally had an end to this triangle when he told Britt that he still had feelings for Liz and wanted to try to make it work with her, but then he got hot and heavy with Britt moments later. Seriously dude, pick one! Spencer’s love triangle with Cameron and Emma is actually more interesting than this one, as much as it pains me to say that.
Cabin in the woods.
The story with Levi and Maxie was finally getting interesting when the show dropped it like a hot potato. Levi and his accomplice tied Maxie and Lulu up in a cabin in the woods, and that was the last we saw of them. Shockingly, I can’t wait until the show gets back to Levi to see what is happening with him. Who knew turning Levi into a bad boy would make his character tolerable, dare I say even enjoyable?
What Alice overheard.
Tracy finally got her comeuppance this week when Alice told Michael about Tracy and Luke’s scheme. I almost thought that Alice had forgotten about it. Michael gave her the boot, and Ned and an off-screen Monica kicked her out of the mansion. It was good to see Tracy get what was coming to her, though a tiny part of me felt for her given she’s been duped by Fluke. Then again, he seems to be bringing out her nastiness, so I don't feel that bad for her. When Fluke’s exposure comes it will be epic. Fluke isn't who he's pretending to be, and neither is Levi. It makes you wonder if anyone else is lying about their identity?
Always a friend.
Ned was back on-screen this week, but seems to have been pigeonholed into the role of friend. Poor Ned needs a lady! How is it that the bad boys have too many women, and the good guys like Ned and Nathan can’t even get one. Ned asked Olivia out as a friend, but they have such a presence on screen together that they need to become more than friends. Ned is possibly too nice for his own good. One positive development with Ned was that he seems to have picked up on the complete personality change in Luke. Could Ned be the one to finally figure out who Fluke is?
