General Hospital Rundown for the week of September 20 – 24:
Last week’s General Hospital had Lucky getting some unwanted assistance in Ireland, Jason playing the straight man as he does so well, and Robin getting into some serious trouble. Of course a couple of other things slipped in there as well.
In order to keep his cover in Ireland, Lucky convinced Siobhan that Ronan found God and turned over a new leaf. She seemed to have fallen for this and is even starting to like him, which seems odd considering Ronan killed her boyfriend. It makes me wonder if Siobhan is also undercover and maybe knows Lucky isn’t really Ronan.
Dante and Lulu decided to come to Lucky’s rescue in Ireland, but they really only managed to almost blow him out of the water. While I think Dante should know better than to just bust in on someone’s undercover work, I see where he would think he could help Lucky. Lulu, on the other hand, really serves no purpose unless she wants to get her brother killed. I really don’t know why she feels she can always effectively come to Dante or Lucky’s rescue. And how can she just keep leaving her job like that? Kate is not that understanding of a boss. What do you think of Lucky’s storyline? Tell us in our Undercover in Ireland poll.
Lightening things up.
Jason and Brenda together in Rome has been pretty entertaining. Jason is really at his best when he’s annoyed and exasperated and Brenda can bring that out in him better than anyone. I also loved that Sonny and Sam knew Jason well enough that they saw how miserable he was in the photo with Brenda. Jason even got Suzanne riled up enough to dress pretty for the hit man. Although, I’m not really sure why she continues to cover up the danger Brenda is in just so she can preserve her privacy. I really think getting Brenda help after being injected with heroin might be more important than making sure it doesn’t leak to the press. I was starting to think Suzanne might be The Balkan, but she did bring Interpol in on Brenda’s latest attack.
Michael yet again walked in on a couple making out, got uncomfortable and left the room. After this happened, Carly and Jax went back to what they were doing, thinking he was just uncomfortable because he saw his parents going at it. Has no one in Port Charles seen "Oz?" Sam seems to be the only one who even remotely seems to understand why Michael might be a bit skittish.
Blink and you missed it.
Olivia and Johnny got back together, but we were robbed of a steamy reunion scene. They had a sweet reconciliation, but it was too short and then they never went back to them. Disappointing.
Adding Maxie to the mix of Nikolas and Brook was a good idea. I so hope we get to see some scenes of Maxie styling Brook Lynn, which I'm sure will lead to some snarky one-liners from each woman. This storyline is also making Nikolas more enjoyable than he's been in some time so I hope it continues for awhile.
Moving her plan along.
Lisa messed with Robin's HIV meds last week, which made her fall asleep while driving with little Emma in the backseat. Emma was just so darned cute when the cop thankfully found her. I also loved Patrick holding her while yelling at Mac as he tried to get him to listen to his theory that Lisa was behind this latest incident. Jason Thompson looked like such a natural with that little girl. What I couldn't understand was Mac's refusal to even listen to what Patrick had to say. Mac knew Robin was worried about Lisa's behavior and Patrick only cheated on Robin, he wasn't trying to physically harm her or put her in danger, so why would he lie about this? As for Lisa, she finally cracked and started to show her true colors with Robin in the cabin, as she ranted about Patrick. Robin better put her crafty Scorpio DNA to good use and get the heck out of there.
