“General Hospital” weekly rundown April 16 – 20:

Port Charles certainly can’t be accused of being a happy, shiny place these days, but it feels like a few dark storylines are coming to a head. Hopefully, when some of these arcs play out, it will make room for some levity and good old fashioned romance. Until then, let’s break down what occurred last week on “General Hospital,” which was filled with nothing but burning questions.

Happy birthday?

Was there anything more entertaining than Kate’s meltdown last week? It wasn’t supposed to be, but watching her freak out on a perplexed Jason was laugh out loud funny. Thankfully, she decided to commit herself, but delayed going to the loony bin so she could tell Sonny he’s dating both women he fell in love with: Kate Howard and Connie Falconeri. Of course, that didn’t work and Connie took over. Sonny’s birthday cake didn’t fare so well and it looks like Sonny and Carly won’t either since a fired up Connie ended up on an out-for-blood Johnny’s doorstep. Hopefully, after witnessing Johnny and Connie together, not only will the once hot, but now not Carly and Johnny be over, but the alter ego mess will be too.

Who did it?
They seem to finally be getting around to solving Lisa’s murder. If anyone still cares, Spinelli and Matt (mostly Spinelli), have been speculating about who the culprit could be. Ewen was briefly a suspect and Patrick was next on Spin’s list, but by Thursday’s end, he started to wonder about Matt since he was drunk and doesn’t remember most of the night Lisa was killed. Even though Maxie has confessed to the crime, it’s pretty clear she didn’t do it, but she does indicate this week that she knows who did. Could it be someone close to her that she’s covering for? Or is it really Ewen or even Maggie, who is on her way off the canvas and who seemingly had a connection to the evil doctor that was never explored? Tell us your current theory at General Hospital Poll: Lisa’s Killer.
