“GH” Rundown for the week of July 15-19:

This week on “General Hospital” most of the drama actually revolved around General Hospital, thanks to the hunt for Danny’s bone marrow match, Franco’s new identity, the double-trouble birthing class, Danny’s kidnapping and the friction between Patrick and Silas. Even a newly-returned Epiphany couldn’t reign in all the madness. Along with an insanely high rate of daddy issues it was still mostly doom and gloom in Port Charles with a lot of sad faces.

Lukewarm love triangle.
Olivia looks pretty good for a gunshot victim. Too good to be sleeping with Dante and Lulu in their studio apartment. They can just say goodbye to all of their remaining alone time before the baby arrives. Plus, Olivia’s heartache in Dante’s face is just one more thing for him to be pissed at Sonny about, who just seems okay with whatever happens to him on this one. He isn’t really taking a stand one way or the other about what he prefers, Connie or Olivia, and in fact, it almost seems as if he would prefer the ladies settle the matter themselves and let him know the outcome afterwards. Without Sonny showing some serious interest either way, neither of these pairings brings much heat.

Daddy issues and partners in parenting.
So we learned that while sipping a Tom Collins, teenage Alexis met Sam’s dad, had sex in the back seat and said goodbye to him and her virginity without ever knowing his name. Of course with the few details she did have – bad boy with a leather jacket getting off work – Sam and Spin should be able to get started on a search. At least Rafe and Molly were able to get the letter “J” out of the Ouija board. It was pretty emotional watching Alexis tell her girls about how she got pregnant. That is one rough story to have to relay to anyone, much less your children. No wonder she has kept it a secret for so long.

Franco’s Jason.
Sam wasn’t the only one struggling with daddy issues – this wasn’t exactly the father-son reunion we were expecting for Jason and Danny, although Roger Howarth donning Jason Morgan’s iconic black T-shirt as Franco thinking he was Stone Cold was pretty priceless. Regardless, this personality swap doesn’t bode well for his burgeoning relationship with Kiki, who barely knew him to begin with. Now he’s got other kids to get to know and in true Franco fashion was willing to shoot his “wife” to do it.
