Let me first apologize for being so late with my article. I am pregnant and a
few days past my due date. My pregnancy has been a rough one, so I have been
trying to get a lot of rest. Now on to the show.
It seems as though the new craze is to kill off either the veterans of the show
or whoever is considered the saints. Thanksgiving brought the funeral of Emily
Quartermaine and on Christmas we once again had to suffer through another
funeral. This time Georgie Jones. It sickens me how they feel the need to kill
off the characters with history and keep on the newbies. They could have
explored the character of Georgie, but instead they killed her off. First she had
to watch as her husband Dillon chased after Lulu along with two other guys.
Then she falls for Spinelli only to watch him lust after Lulu as well. Her life
and Emily's are both ended by some Text Message Killer who decided to suddenly
go on a killing spree. From what I hear it may be Coop and I have to wonder why?
Georgie's death brought Felicia back to town and brought out the vengeful side of
Maxie. Maxie has always made things more interesting; however, it seems as though
she is the punching bag on this show. She has a heart condition, lost her true
love, Jessie, fell for Lucky only to have him use her and turn against her, now
she has fallen in love with a killer. While Maxie suffers her worst enemy and
one of the characters I loathe, Lulu is once again lusted after. Lulu seems to
enjoy getting herself in trouble and right in the middle of a mob war. I guess
her life is just so boring that she feels she needs a little danger or maybe it's
pure stupidity. Either way it grates my nerves. She has Logan who is madly in
love with her, and she has bad boy Johnny lusting after her as well. Gee, it must
be nice to have men fall at your feet. If only we all had that kind of luck.
We have Jason and Liz and their so called tortured love story. I find it boring
and couldn't care less. Yes he is Jake's father, but let's move on and quit dwelling on
it. Now we have Sam telling Carly about the whole mess, and as always Carly has
to stick her nose in someone else's business. She's another character I loathe.
While her son Michael is showing signs of being a future psychopath, she is off
in Jason's business. She should be getting Michael lots of therapy or sending
him to military school. Anything to keep him from possibly hurting someone.
Meanwhile, she and Jax are trying to have a baby, and I wonder why would you want
to bring another child into the world when the one you have is so messed up?
Sonny, of course, is no better when it comes to parenting. He is so obsessed with
Kate that he can't be bothered about his own children. That's what makes me hate
Skate. Yes, they are fresh and new instead of the same old Carson love story, but
the guy has to think about his children first.
Skye left town and it was a sad end for what once was an exciting character.
Skye has always had fire in her. She was excellent on All My Children and One
Life to Live, but when it came to General Hospital, she was poorly used. Skye was
also the punching bag who always got her heart ripped out. She fell for Jax only
to have him marry then leave her for Brenda. She fell for Luke only to have him
leave her for Tracy. She fell for Alcazar only to have him still obsessed with
Carly and taking down Sonny/Jason. Then she fell for Ric only to have him more
interested in Alexis and the mob. I hated to see her leave but really she had no
other choice. I was happy to at least see her leave alive than in a body bag.
It's just sad that she didn't get a happy ending.
Alexis and Jerry are still dancing around each other. A few kisses here and
there getting my hopes up. However, Jerry has to, of course, be involved with the
mob as well. God forbid, there be one single character who isn't involved with
the mob. I hear we are finally getting a Scrubs baby, and all I can say is it's
about time. Lets hope Anna and Robert pop up to see their grandkid be born. Let's
also hope this story is done tastefully and realistically. Leyla is said to cause
trouble for Patrick, and all I can say is please move on. Loving the Diane and
Alexis scenes. Hoping for a Diane/Max love story.
The whole crap with Luke just bored me. He needs to have surgery on his heart
yet he is trying to escape and light up a cigar. I just shook my head, because
that was obviously selfish and shows that he never thinks of anyone but himself.
However, Lulu finally got through to him only to in return go off and get herself
kidnapped. Now we have some poor guy whose wife is in desperate need of medical
care getting turned away because of no insurance. What a horrible hospital that
is. So, of course, the poor guy straps a bomb to himself and will be holding
people hostage. Do I blame him? Nope. However it does make me wonder about the
Quartermaines and their position in the hospital. Hopefully, this will be a wake-up
call for them to finally use their pull for good. Changing that stupid policy
will save some lives. I am hoping to see the snotty Ms. Sneed and Dr. Ford go
down during the hostage storyline, because they are two very ruthless and snotty
Of course, Jason will come out as the hero because apparently he is Batman or
Superman in human form who must save the day in every storyline and have women
lusting after him. BARF!!!!
It would be nice to for once see Lucky or Nikolas or some other character as
Ah, yes, then there is the big news that Sarah Brown is returning to
General Hospital as a new character. She was the original Carly and, in my
opinion, one of the best. However, it will be weird to see her as a new character.
Supposedly, she is coming on as Johnny's big sister and the new big bad in town.
She'll have a love affair with Ric; but, of course, we know that down the line,
she'll fall for Sonny or Jason. Almost every new female who enters the scene
seems to lust after Sonny and Jason. Why, I have no clue? Let's hope she brings
some excitement. What would be nice would be to see less of the mob and more of
the hospital. More adventure and lots of romance. However, I am not holding my
breath. This show is so obsessed with violence and death that it's sickening.
Let's hope things change for the better.
