“General Hospital” Rundown for the week of January 20 – 24:

It really was a week featuring the most unexpected, bizarre, and randomly juvenile scenes ever…and it’s only January.

Hail to the Chief.
There’s not much I complain about in the realm of soap opera fiction, but really, Obrecht as Chief of Staff? Both Cesar Faison and Helena Cassadine could come back from the dead next week and it would be more believable than someone from General Hospital hiring Obrecht as an employee. It was more out of left field than learning Franco was Scott and Heather’s son or that Jerry Jacks survived a fall from a balcony at the Metro Court. Granted there were some entertaining moments, like berating Brad and Elizabeth and defending Silas to Detective Nathan West. Silas was quite agreeable with the arrangement…happy to work for her provided she doesn’t kidnap any of his close family or friends. Plus there was some nonsense about contracts. Someone needs to call Diane Miller, quick.

Pretend you didn’t hear.
Wow. Sabrina started to think she was running the joint when she had the nerve to ask Elizabeth to keep her secret. Asking your best friend to zip it is one thing, asking the best friend of the baby’s daddy not to tell was just overstepping boundaries. Of course now that the nurses’ station is under the watchful eye of Dr. Obrecht, Sabrina doesn’t stand a chance of keeping her secret.

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
Ava and Julian are the daftest individuals in Port Charles. Ava really thought she’d be able to carry on a relationship with Morgan during Julian and Sonny’s mob war. The texting was so juvenile with her fawning over pictures of the two of them on her phone. Meanwhile, Julian thought he could invite himself into the lives of his children and be a father. It’s about time that Jerry Jacks put Dr. Obrecht in charge of these two incompetent evil doers.
