On Friday's General Hospital:
As Noah, Patrick, and Robin emerge from operating on Eli – he's in for a long recovery but should be just fine – Anna is there to whisk Noah away for his Eli debut at the cocktail party to benefit Lifebeat. Noah resists and suggests canceling but Anna convinces him it will be a good test to see if they even have a chance of pulling it off at the upcoming concert.
While waiting for "Eli Love" to make his appearance at the cocktail party, Kate takes one of her boss's sexual stimulant pills, mistaking them for the aspirin he told her to help herself to for her headache. Under the influence, she all but ran to Sonny's. She tried to keep up the guise of the museum board seat, but couldn't resist the urge to leap into his arms.
As fun as the scenes of Kate's usual modest façade falling apart were to watch, I sort of wish the two could come together without her being under the influence. Cue predictable storyline of Kate being horrified and regretful of her actions and avoiding Sonny, while he pushes her to admit what she's not ready to.
Back at the party, a nervous Noah eased into his role when it became apparent no one was the wiser. Patrick was worried his father would become too comfortable in the rock star's shoes and slide right off the wagon, especially when Anna presented him with a shot of vodka to toast the charity. (We'll have to turn in Monday to see how that turns out.) Robin believed Noah could handle the temptations of alcohol; it was the temptation of her mother she was worried about.
Anna's spent her twenty plus years on daytime television as an international spy, saving the world from danger. She's a smart cookie and my guess is she's long figured out Noah's a recovering alcoholic and the shot glass contains something innocuous posing as vodka… but maybe I'm wrong. Either way, I'm anxious to see how this plays out on Monday.
