    Who's the boss? (ABC)
    "General Hospital" Rundown for the week of January 20 – 24:

    It really was a week featuring the most unexpected, bizarre, and randomly juvenile scenes ever…and it's only January.

    Hail to the Chief.
    There's not much I complain about in the realm of soap opera fiction, but really, Obrecht as Chief of Staff? Both Cesar Faison and Helena Cassadine could come back from the dead next week and it would be more believable than someone from General Hospital hiring Obrecht as an employee. It was more out of left field than learning Franco was Scott and Heather's son or that Jerry Jacks survived a fall from a balcony at the Metro Court. Granted there were some entertaining moments, like berating Brad and Elizabeth and defending Silas to Detective Nathan West. Silas was quite agreeable with the arrangement…happy to work for her provided she doesn't kidnap any of his close family or friends. Plus there was some nonsense about contracts. Someone needs to call Diane Miller, quick.

    Pretend you didn't hear.
    Wow. Sabrina started to think she was running the joint when she had the nerve to ask Elizabeth to keep her secret. Asking your best friend to zip it is one thing, asking the best friend of the baby's daddy not to tell was just overstepping boundaries. Of course now that the nurses' station is under the watchful eye of Dr. Obrecht, Sabrina doesn't stand a chance of keeping her secret.

    Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
    Ava and Julian are the daftest individuals in Port Charles. Ava really thought she'd be able to carry on a relationship with Morgan during Julian and Sonny's mob war. The texting was so juvenile with her fawning over pictures of the two of them on her phone. Meanwhile, Julian thought he could invite himself into the lives of his children and be a father. It's about time that Jerry Jacks put Dr. Obrecht in charge of these two incompetent evil doers.


    Unstable in the stable. (ABC)
    Love, elementary style.
    The love triangle between Spence, Cam and Emily was bordering on more entertaining than whatever wasn't happening between Molly, Rafe and TJ. Maybe it was the air of mystery surrounding the happenings at the stable, or the excitement at the prospect of a duel that was less absurd than Obrecht's new position at the hospital that held our interest. Those kiddos were fun to watch, especially Emma and Heather bonding in girl power. Heather can still make friends.

    Franco and Kiki.
    These two are kindred spirits. Kiki has wedged her way into a makeshift family and Franco has found a way into her heart without trying. Silas was taking way too long to step up to the plate as father and Kiki couldn't help herself. She cares for Franco and would make Carly proud. Franco and Kiki remind me of Luke and Lulu in many ways.

    Duke and Anna.
    It was easy to predict trouble in paradise for those two, not that they've had any quality time together. She's a workaholic and spends more time with Robert. It was no wonder that Duke was out meeting with gangsters. It would be sad to see this couple go the way of Luke and Laura so here's to hoping that they can pull it together soon.

    Lucy and Scott.
    Kevin's a great person, but it just doesn't seem like he adds spark to Lucy's life. Unfortunately, he just seems like he's along for the ride. Scott on the other hand appears to be interested and keeps her interested.

    Sonny and Alexis.
    Sonny and Alexis came off as such an endearing former couple. Their friendship brought a touch of warmth to the show and made me ponder, what if they had a go at it again? Take Soaps.com's General Hospital Poll to tell us if a Sonny and Alexis reunion would be your cup of tea.

    Agree with you on almost all your points, Violette.
    Bizarre re Dr. O. Juvenile Ava--yes! The writers/PTB are going down that long road to oblivion by failure to write anything believable anymore. We viewers are not fools and will not stand still (nor watch!) for that.
    I depart with you on the idea that it would be positive for a lawyer--mainly Alexis--to go down that road with Sonny again.
    Agree with you re the sadness of breaking up L and L.
    Anna and Duke? I prefer Anna and Robert--but, alas, TPTB botched it again by failing to give Robert a contract--just like they failed to give Genie Francis a contract (regardless of their protestations otherwise).
    And one more comment: who is there to like on GH, and who is there to pull for?

    Glad Dr.O jumped on Liz. She is a employee and no matter who her grandfather was, he didn't own GH, and he was a employee also. Sick of seeing her leave whenever she felt like it to either run some man down. Liz got a big mouth and why she thinks so much of herself is beyond me. Hope Dr. O just her butt again.

    When is Anna going to solve a crime, there's still the matter of who shot Olivia/who tried to kill Franco/where's, Jerry Jacks. When is Nicolas going to put 2&2 together about what Britt told him about how Ben came about. I can't wait until the rating war is over. Then maybe the plots will start to make sense.
