On today’s General Hospital: Patrick tells Robin the whole truth, Brenda goes away with Murphy, and Dante doubts Sonny’s being honest.
Robin confronted Lisa and ordered her to stay away from Patrick, her and especially Emma. Patrick knew he could no longer keep his secret and tearfully admitted to sleeping with Lisa while Robin was in Africa. He then asked for her forgiveness. Instead, Robin pressed Patrick for all the details of what had really been happening in the weeks since her return and then tossed him out of their house.
The eventual dismantling of scrubs has been coming for a long time, and I was among those who hated the entire storyline. We cheered this couple on for far too long to see them go down like this. But I will say the payoff was worth it. Both Jason Thompson and Kimberly Mccullough pulled out all the stops and gave outstanding performances. I hope this pairing that has been through so much will find a way to work together to stop the force working to rip them apart.
Murphy showed up at Brenda’s hotel room with tales of his new movie and an offer for her to accompany him back to the set. He made another plea to put a ring on her finger, and she hesitated, but did agree to the trip. Before they left, she regaled poor Murphy with stories of Jason, but the actor didn’t seemed deterred from his fight for her hand.
As much as I’m in to Murphy (And I really am!) I find myself asking why. Why are we being introduced to Brenda’s old world, when she’ll eventually be in PC with her old surroundings? These new faces will fade into the background, and if history is any indicator these storylines (the children’s charity and the designer job) will be dropped. I’m all for a slow build up for a story, but don’t tease with a dessert (Murphy) that will be taken away before dinner is finished.
When Ronnie told Dante Johnny was unarmed, the new found faith Dante had in his father dissipated. Lucky’s wasn’t willing to buy that Johnny was unarmed and Michael also pleaded Sonny’s case to his big brother. I’m guessing Dante is still feeling the sting of the bullet Daddy dearest put in his chest, because he was siding with Ronnie’s version of events.
Meanwhile at the police station, Claire played a recording of Sonny proposing that he’ll set Johnny up for a fall. On the tape, he said if Johnny ever pulled a gun on him, he’d shoot to kill, giving Claire all she needed to lodge an attempted murder charge against Sonny.
Think Sonny is regretting his attempt to compromise Claire yet?
