“General Hospital” Rundown for the week of October 14 – October 18:

The intrigue picks up momentum this week when we see continued developments abroad and in Port Charles. There are adventuresome chapters on the horizon for “General Hospital.”

Empty nest syndrome.
Ava hasn’t cornered the market on silliness while suffering from empty nest syndrome. Her rival Carly appears to be in the same boat. They both need something to fill the void in their lives. Carly really should consider raising her daughter instead of worrying about her boys. Just look at what she’s gone and done…she’s falling for Franco. As different as these two women would like to think they are, they are quite the same when it comes to men. They like them bad. This kind of makes one wonder about Silas. It’s obvious her judgment is cloudy and she has no control over the situation with Morgan. Derek was right to be concerned. There aren’t enough ground rules that will keep that boy out of trouble.

One plus one plus two plus…equals whatever.
Shawn and Sonny were getting to be like a broken record. How many times did they need to go over what they knew? What they knew about Ava and Derek may only fill the head of a thimble but it was enough to know that something wasn’t right in Port Charles and Derek and Ava were the cause of it. Apparently Sonny needs to talk to everyone in town before he can connect the dots and then Shawn still won’t agree with him.

Get a job.
Some people in Port Charles do work. They are usually doctors and nurses and the staff at Kelly’s and the Metro Court. Well, Michael and Kiki woke up one day and planned to add themselves to the work force. It looks like Kiki will be successful anyway; Michael’s career on the other hand was on hold until Sonny could run it by his mother. If it’s not the Quartermaines it’s his parents running his life. He needs to step it up. This character needs to grow in a new direction outside of one that is Sonny, AJ and Carly’s son.
