General Hospital Check Up - Week Of January 19, 2009

The hospital crisis continues


Jason Cook (Matt, General Hospital)Unfortunately the “crisis” was just as confusing this week as it was last week.  It still isn’t clear what the “crisis” is.  What went on in that operating room?  Why did doctors and nurses fall to the floor?  If you want clarification, I suggest you take a look at the February 3, 2009 issue of Soap Opera Digest.  The cover story explains what happened and what’s set to happen.

I was so happy to see Coleman again on Monday.  It’s disappointing how we rarely see Coleman.   What a colorful character he is – just full of possibilities.  Too bad they don’t put Coleman out there more often.  Coleman wasn’t at the Scrubs wedding which made no sense since he was the original “best man.”  I enjoy Coleman and find him to be a unique and interesting character.  I always love the versatility Blake Gibbons brings to Coleman and every other role I’ve seen him play.  The man is just naturally funny too.  “Dude you need to work on translating what comes out of your mouth,” Coleman told Spinelli.  “Dude?”  Who says that word anymore?  Somehow it just works coming from Coleman.  I think Coleman is one of my favorite characters on General Hospital, ever.  No kidding.

I wonder, doesn’t anyone at GH notice this Rebecca woman?  Is she supposed to look like Emily?  If so, why hasn’t anyone said a thing to Liz or Nikolas?  Rebecca went to human resources and applied for a job.  Didn’t the human resources people notice she looks just like Emily?  What’s this girl’s game anyway?  All she seems to do is lurk around the nurse’s desk and stare at Nikolas when he’s there.  Is she stalking him?  Does she know who Nikolas is or is it all just innocent?  And don’t even try to tell me nobody noticed Rebecca walking around the Metro Court.  It wasn’t too long ago when much of the staff was taken hostage along with Emily. This story is just way too unbelievable so far. 

Thanks to the writers for finally putting Sam with the perfect man.  Of course I’m talking about Anthony Zacchara.  What a perfect pair they make.  Both are fabulous at lying, cheating, and stealing.  They both are champions at the betrayal game and the blame game.  Anthony was too funny when he leered at Sam at the Metro Court.  He was the perfect “dirty old man.”  Honestly, I think Anthony would have stood and walked had Sam invited him for an elevator ride.  Sam wants to infiltrate the Zacchara organization so why not pair her off with Anthony? 

Poor Claudia.  She’s frantically searching for the last DVD.  It seems like everyone else has come into contact with that disc but Claudia.  The woman is a nervous wreck.  I really feel for Claudia lately and I’m convinced that she does have a conscience.  She came “this close” to telling Sonny that Anthony shot Kate.  I think she’ll tell him soon enough.  Given the choice, Sonny is a much safer bet for Claudia to side with than Anthony.  One of the many things I enjoy about Claudia is she’s funny.  Remember when Sonny asked Claudia if she heard the “banging” noises upstairs?  Claudia was hilarious when she asked Sonny if someone was “banging” in the house.  She assured him with a straight face that it wasn’t her. 

I wonder if I’m the only one who thinks Claudia is falling for Sonny?  I don’t think Claudia wants to fall for Sonny but I think she will.  In fact, I think she already has.  I think Claudia is only fooling around with Ric to get Sonny’s attention.  I think Claudia likes Ric, but she really wants Sonny.  In Claudia’s crazy mind, if Sonny catches her with Ric, he might just admit that he has feelings for her.  In the end, Claudia is looking for love, respect, and safety from Sonny.  Claudia is scared to death of Anthony and Sonny is probably the only person who can and will save her.  Of course everything depends on who finds Jerry’s last DVD.

Carly and Robin have an interesting vibe, don’t they?  The look on Carly’s face when Robin wheeled Emma into the living room in the crib was priceless.  “You just rolled her out here in that thing?” she asked Robin, appalled.  I know it’s a serious subject, but the look on Carly’s face and the sarcasm in her voice was just comical. 

I just have a random comment about Robin.  Why when she called for a makeover appointment did she call herself “Robin Scorpio?”  Isn’t she “Robin Drake” now?

All this talk about Michael’s benefit has me thinking.  Do they plan on bringing Michael back?  If they do, I hope they don’t age him.  It was nice to see Dylan Cash return as Michael last month.  We watched young Dylan grow up for years so it would make sense to have him come back as Michael.  I would love to see Michael recover, at least partially. 

The hospital crisis continues to unfold this coming week.  It looks like the episodes will be in “real” time starting on Thursday.
