Making the Rounds at General Hospital – A Slap on the Wrist for Kate

On Thursday's General Hospital:

After the judge gave his speech about not giving celebrities special treatment, especially repeat offenders of DUI, he proceeded to give Kate six months of community service at General Hospital. Even though she seemed quite relieved, Diane was immediately and vehemently opposed to the ankle bracelet that went along with it, asking the judge if he had any idea at all the influence Kate had on high fashion. Trevor and Ric sat back in total dismay and disbelief, both at Diane's protest and the slap on the wrist the usual hard nose judge passed down. We later learned it was thanks to Jerry that Sonny was able to blackmail the judge with a skeleton hidden in his closet – a niece he helped out with a DUI.

It didn't take Trevor long to figure it out and he warned Sonny that Kate will eventually lose everything. I wonder how long it will take Diane to figure it out. I have to say, she is such a fun character: a strong independent woman, who has her questionable ethics when it comes to Sonny's business and an insatiable weakness for high fashion. Completely unique from any other woman on the show, I'm always happier when I see she's going to be included in a day's storylines.

As Liz finished packing up her things and moved her and the boys into her grandma's house, Lucky seemed to have a change of heart. First he asked her to take her time about moving out and then offered again to let her have the house. To both suggestions, she closed the door. While she tried to paint a happy picture for her kids about their new life, Lucky chose to distract himself from his heartache with Sam.

I thought it was interesting how they continue to try and paint Liz as the righteous one here. Every wrong she did can be explained away by the fact Lucky was addicted to pills. In her mind it's okay if she's still lying about her son's paternity because Jason's life is too dangerous. I'm not trying to absolve Lucky, but I would have a lot more sympathy for Liz and her situation if I felt she regretted any part she played.

Three minor subplots weaved their way through today's episode. Nikolas turned to Robin for help and blood tests, suspecting his odd mood swings and blackouts may be an after effect of being poisoned by Jerry. He later confronted Jerry at the Metro Court, and by the needling tone in his reply, I'm guessing it was a symptom Jerry expected.

Georgie asked Spinelli for help in planning her year of learning abroad as an excuse to spend time with him. When he found it difficult to turn the conversation away from Lulu, however, she flat out asked him what he would do if Lulu never returned his feelings. Carly pushed her friendship with Jason too far and all but forbid him to see Liz. In an uncharacteristic, but long overdue move, Jason told her to back off and mind her own business.

Don't Forget! Nightshift on Soapnet tonight!

Tonight is episode twelve of thirteen so expect to see the stories that have run the full course of the season come to a head. Toussaint goes under the knife for his aneurysm, and by the looks of the previews, we'll be treated to Billy D. Williams singing via his life flashing before his eyes. It also appears Jason is on to Jolene. Get the tissues ready, I have a feeling it's going to be an emotional episode on all fronts.

    sam a Pathetic fool for saying to liz that Jason “doesn’t love you” witch by the on her face when liz told sam what sam have done to liz and her boys in the Park and that Jason told her everything and Jason trust her . The look on sam face was priceless and also I don’t want the truth about Jake being Jason son because I want liz to get off of perjury charges first and the make it look like liz was sceretly working the the cops because when lucky find out the truth about jake not being his. Lucky would use her steal lucky badge to see jason in prison.

    And try to send her to prison to try to take jake and cameron away from liz and jason because soon or later liz and jason wont keep their promise to stay away from each other especially now because their is a crazy mob boss killing people one by one at nik and emily ball and I know with out a dought that jason going want to keep liz by his side all the time to protect her form harm’s way and with sam and her none stop obsession over jason and seeing liz and jason together even with lucky that will put her jealousy for liz over the edge that would make sam come out with the truth only about jake being jason son to finally get back at liz and also jason.

    But even though she might get all crazy and jealous of liz and end up blowing liz sceret out and end up sending liz to jail for perjury but her ratting liz sceret out that would send sam to prison for a long time because what she did to liz ,jake and cameron at the park by watch jake gets kidnapped and giving falls statement to the police and then couple days letter after jason brings jake home to liz. And then pay off two thugs to threat liz and her boys life’s . As for jason I know jason love liz and would do anything for liz.

    And that jason would take the perjury charges against liz and go to jail for liz because jason have committed perjury for liz in the past when liz thaught she had kill zander because zander were threaten liz so liz hit zander when he turn his back to liz and when liz were in the hospital for check up to see if she and her baby boy was oak when she was still pregnant and that’s when liz confess to emily about killing zander so emily went to jason for help because liz was going to confess to the police about zander death so emily ask jason if he ever care about liz he would help liz out from going to prison.

    But liz never really killed zander because zander have gotting out of the basement and end up knocking out other guy that were checking things out in the basement after the guy were knocked out zander switch shirts and then the throw gas on the guy to fake his own death so he could go after liz but after words everyone finds out zander was still alive because he kidnapped emily and then police end up spoting emily and zander and zander pertend that he has a gun and were going to take the gun out and shot emily but he was just playing and the police thaught he really has a gun and were going to shot emily.

    So they kill zander at the same spot that emily were at and after all that jason have not realize he have committed perjury fo a false pretence because of zander faking his death to come after liz and and ric have for all about committed perjury to protect liz from going to prison for something she never really did.So for sam to rat out liz about her and jason sceret not only it’s going to backfire on sam in away she never imagine because jason would rather go to jail to protect liz and the boys then watch them have liz throw in jail.

    That would made sam even worse than ferous and angry because sam would see how much jason love liz by defending liz to every one and telling off anyone who decided to try and mess with liz and after the nightmare of nik and emily ball is over and lucky decided to arrest liz for perjury to take liz boys away from her it would make jason piss as hell and jason would go to jail for liz and jake and cameron still have their mother and that would mean that lucky would never get custody of jake or cameron.

  • http://blogcritics.org/ Blogcritics Magazine

    because jason would rather him go to jail than liz for perjury because if he didn’t than liz would lose custody and rights to jake and cameron because she would be going to jail and that would mean him losing his son compeletly forever because lucky would do what ever it takes to keep jason way from his son jake and jason would rather die than let liz go to jail for perjury and lose their son jake to lucky including cameron witch jason knows with out a doubt that lucky doesn’t deserve liz or her boys but jason doesn’t let his feelings towards lucky get in his way or try to tell liz who she can and can not see jason never like the guys liz choose to date or married and he never disrespect liz and her choices and the only person jason ever really hate is ric for good reason but jason never disrespect liz in her choice in who liz love or used to love or married or use to dated.
