Well, after a surprisingly decent wedding-week extravaganza, the folks at General Hospital followed it up with a fairly decent Monday. I know, it's unsettling right?
Shawn decides to make a break from Carly's stellar nursing care, but passes out before he reaches the door. When he comes to, Carly is re-bandaging his wound. Shawn can't figure her out, she's "an enigma wrapped in a conundrum". She should take that assessment as a compliment, I'd have been far less kind myself. Carly thinks that Shawn may be able to provide Jason with necessary information on The Balkan. Shawn maintains that he was never a member of Theo's inner-circle and never knew his true plans. As the show ends, Sonny and his goons burst in with the intention of "questioning" Shawn. Side Note: Is it too early to start a campaign for Shawn and Carly as a romantic pair? Because, I kinda like them - - Sharly for the win!!
In his plush catacomb-office, Theo is on the receiving end of Suzanne's wrath when she fears that he killed Brenda in the limo's explosion. Theo assures her that he has always wanted Brenda alive (which makes absolutely no sense if he didn't know about the baby to think she had squirreled the tyke away somewhere and needed her alive to tell him where) and his objective has not changed. Suzanne then gives a very convincing tirade about the sacrifices she's made for their vengeance over the years and her hatred of Brenda. It was a beautiful piece of acting from Adrienne Barbeau, (and from Suzanne) who I'm certain is lying to her husband about her intentions for Brenda (why, I don't know. Except, I'm pretty sure that she has the baby. Why not tell Balk-y? Again, no clue. If she realizes he's evil, why didn't she just poison his Purell years ago?). I fear it will ultimately make no sense, but it was a great scene none-the-less.
Ethan continues to be supportive of Kristina, listening as she remembers her car-bomb incident from last summer. They are adorable together, not sold on anything non-platonic yet though.
Luke shows surprising kindness when he comforts Edward and drives him home. At the Quartermaine mansion, Luke continues to play Mr. Brightside when he reminds Edward "at least nobody's dead yet". Jane Elliot totally ripped my heart out when Tracy confessed that she "doesn't usually think of her father as old", but tonight he seems very frail. *sob* I love that they bothered to play anyone's pain but Sonny and Jason, kudos GH!
My main complaint was Lucky and Siobhan (whom I originally enjoyed as a fresh new couple). The past few weeks, I have found her "spunk" less endearing and more outright obnoxious. I also can't figure out why she and Lucky think that The Balkan no longer has any leverage now that Megan is safely in Barcelona - - doesn't she have others sisters to kidnap? On the plane, Lucky brings up the subject of a green-card marriage once again. Lucky tells Siobhan that Cam and Jake aren't his biological sons, and even goes so far as to tell her Jake's true paternity. What the what???? This girl has the loosest lips of anyone ever, what the heck Lucky? Siobhan asks him if he and Elizabeth would still be together if the boys were his biological children. Lucky says that was a reasonable question. Um, no, no it is not.
