“General Hospital” weekly rundown for May 2 – 6:
Last week’s “General Hospital” pitted a few couples against each other, while others further solidified their bonds. A few other things happened as well, including a few of the same gripes, so let’s get to it.
I’m having a hard time with Jax being made to be the bad guy. I know he’s kind of a broken record regarding Josslyn and her being in danger with Carly, but he does have a point. Sonny and Jason’s world is not safe and Carly is never far from the danger. So, Shawn calling Jax a bully just makes me like the former less. I really want to like Shawn, but this is not the way to go about it because Jax isn’t the bad guy or a bully. He just wants his daughter to be safe and I can’t fault him for that. Where do you stand?

Aside from Ethan, Luke’s family stood their ground and froze him out after he decided not to seek treatment. I’m glad this story has continued and didn’t neatly wrap up after the intervention, but something else needs to happen now so that we can see something other than Luke beat himself up at the Haunted Star.
Wrench in the works.
Lucky and Siobhan have really grown on me. They are a sweet couple who married for a green card, but only after already having a relationship. Unlike many other marriages of convenience on soaps that eventually develop into something more, we won’t have to watch that cliché play out, because they already dig each other. Instead, the secret of Lucky being Aiden’s father is looming over them. I’m liking this storyline so far, which also includes Lucky and Nikolas being brothers again. I will be sad to watch Nikolas have to give up his son to his recently reconciled brother. I’m guessing that will be the catalyst for Nikolas’ exit, which I’m also not looking forward to.
The next level.
Steve and Olivia turned up the heat in their relationship and slept together last week. It was great to see them take their relationship to the next level, but we don’t see them nearly enough. It's too bad they don't have an actual storyline. They certainly have the chemistry to make whatever they do interesting. And Steve definitely has the body for a romantic lead. He might even look better than the last time he was shirtless. Olivia used to be in front burner stories fans wanted to watch, so let's give these two something substantial to do.
It's so frustrating that Brenda won't even consider the fact that Suzanne took Lucian. The woman kept her son hidden from her for three years and was knowingly married to the man who tormented Brenda for much of that time. Why would she not even consider her as a suspect? That said, I don’t blame Brenda for being upset with Sonny, who doesn’t seem to grasp the severity of Lucian's disappearance. Would he be so calm if Michael, Morgan or Kristina were taken? I think not.
Coming to an end?
It's always nice to see Patrick and Robin happy and I enjoyed their canoodling all week. What I did not enjoy was Lisa secretly listening in on them. This is all supposed to lead to a big showdown and I am hoping against hope that it's the final one so all parties involved can move on.
I was hoping Abby was going to be revealed to be in cahoots with the Zaccharas when Jason found her at Johnny's. It would certainly shake things up in this boring storyline. I like Michael and Abby together, but their 'love' is too perfect. I also hate where Michael's head is at in regards to protecting Abby and the never ending conversation about how everyone needs to protect him. Something different needs to happen.
That's all I got this time around. What did you think about last week's "General Hospital?" Feel free to share your thoughts below.
