“GH” Rundown for the week of June 3 – 7:

This week outdid the previous and left a feeling that there might still be something to celebrate after 50 years. The remaining veterans pulled off a coup while a number of newer characters worked their magic.

The vets.
Luke and Tracy never fail to entertain. They can be falling in and out of love for the umpteenth time and always hold our attention. As dramatic as they try to make it, sometimes the best part is the humor, something “GH” always has going for. The scene at the hospital was funny where Luke wanted Lulu to believe they were there for Tracy and he shoved her in a wheelchair. Monica ended up in on the action as well. She’s a vet who’s been sorely missed and it’s great to have her around now that AJ is alive.

Sonny and Carly have been out of play as a team for quite a while. Man, when those two put their heads together it’s easy to see why they should be kept apart, but it’s nice that they aren’t sometimes so it can add to the drama. It’s questionable that Carly would want to be this involved in the business after trying to keep Michael and Morgan out of it, but if there’s one thing Carly’s game for, it’s revenge. It’s too bad no one is considering how Michael will feel about putting a hit on his uncle.

Sniper Shawn.
It probably wasn’t what they were going for and it wasn’t a funny moment, but what the heck was Shawn doing on the Quartermaine patio trying to take out Franco in the living room? This is when comedy doesn’t work. Did someone think that scene made it to the cutting room floor, because it didn’t? Carly running around doing that would be more believable than Shawn in that position.

Goings on at Michael’s place.
Anything happening between Michael and Lauren/Kiki seems contrived and it’d be nice if it would end. They shouldn’t be forced to be a couple based on chemistry they had when Kiki was Starr. Bryan Craig is doing a great job as Morgan; even though it’s weird the character left for school a polite little boy and came back an obnoxious twit. Since Kristina aged out and left home and Michael has matured greatly, it’s nice to have a character with Morgan’s bite.

Dr. Silas Clay, Enforcer of Medicine.
Seriously, were they trying to model this character after Jason Morgan, the mob enforcer? Dr. Clay is about as dark and disturbing as they come. A good diagnosis from this doctor would make a patient feel ill. The subtle reference that no one knows blood like he does seems to say a lot for how undecided the writers might be about this character. Is he really Caleb?
