I am very happy to announce that Making the Rounds at General Hospital is back on Blogcritics. After being in Connie Phillips’ very insightful hands since its inception, this popular BC feature will now be penned by me.
I’ve been a GH watcher on and off for the last 20 years or so, which is why I’m happy to step in to Connie’s considerable shoes. As a fan of Connie’s format, I will be continuing to deliver regular recaps of the week’s episodes, news, spoilers, and my own repartee about the events that unfold in this never boring harbor town. I welcome any comments or suggestions and hope you all will be as happy with my reporting as you were with Connie’s.
So here we go…
The fallout from Michael’s shooting is still going strong. Sonny and Jason fight over Jason’s refusal to take over the business. Sonny feels that extricating himself from organized crime will enable him to live a more normal life and keep his children safe.
Carly, too, is in full-scale panic mode and ready to flee Port Charles with Morgan to keep him away from Sonny after mob-daddy refused to sign over his paternal rights. Spinelli shows up on Carly’s doorstep just in time to help, but true to Jason, the Jackal calls Stone Cold to inform him of Carly’s intentions. Jason shows up to talk her out of leaving and completing another impetuous move that this character is so famous for.
Both of these storylines are starting to get on my nerves as neither makes sense. The bad guys know who the people are who are most important to both Jason and Sonny, and no signed paper is going to change that. It may be that the sins of their past are coming back to haunt them, and there’s not much that can be done about that. If their enemies want payback for the decades of harm that have been caused, it won’t matter if paternity rights and legal affiliations are in place. Mobster memories are long.
