Can you feel it in the air? There’s an action adventure storyline coming, and it will involve Robin, the Scorpios, the Joneses, the Spencers, the everyones. The Ice Princess will tie in, too, and maybe Pickle Lila is the key to disabling it. Whatever’s coming, it will be glorious. And I will be watching.

We have vampires and slayers, Pickle Lila and the missing Q heir, Frisco swearing to seduce Felicia once again, and Laura in town. These storylines have a lot of potential, but so many of them are just having their groundwork laid. Is it a problem that Kristina attacking Connie engaged me the most?
Sleeping with two guys on the same day and having a paternity issue arise is a soap staple. Which means I have to give the writing team props for tweaking that plot twist into losing one baby and conceiving another on the same night. It’s original, at least. But as my tone may indicate, I’m still not thrilled with the existence of a little Jackal.
Welcome to my first prescription for General Hospital of 2013! These two weeks have surprised me with unexpectedly hot love scenes and curveballs regarding who was most injured in the crash. Sorry, Trey. Most surprising for me, however, was that Connie showed signs of a conscience … and I cared.
In the space of one week, we’ve had significant screen time devoted to two possibly returning characters: Lorenzo Alcazar and Lucy Coe. I am mildly interested in the return of Lorenzo, but teasing Lucy Coe and the Nurses’ Ball is like sprinkling catnip all over my favorite fake mouse. If I were a cat, that is. Perhaps the clearer description would be to declare that I’ll put up with Sabrina for it.
The last two weeks featured the introduction of Lila Rae Alcazar, the death of Edward Quartermaine, and the returns of Ned Ashton, Skye Chandler, and Robert Scorpio. But I think I should begin with something of great significance. Something I never thought would happen and actually dreaded should it occur. I’m talking, of course, of Dante’s haircut.
In the past month, Heather Webber jumped off the hospital roof, Daniel Morgan displayed the ability to teleport right into his father’s arms, that same father ended up shot by Duke Lavery and swimming with the fishes, and Heather Webber woke up with nothing more than a head wound from the fall. Am I caught up?
When John Ingle first took over the role of Edward Quartermaine, nearly 20 years ago, I was 13. I was about a year away from my first relationship, and Robin was about six months away from her first love, Stone Cates, although she was crushing on Jason Quartermaine at the time. I remember Edward coming back, having been discovered enjoying life incognito in the Bahamas. In no time, everything was back to normal at the Q Mansion. Which means Edward was doing everything possible to turn his family members against each other in the name of ELQ and picking his perfect heir. It would be years before he realized that enjoying his family was all that truly mattered, and it was a realization that came too late, but it came nonetheless.
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again — I am so happy that Todd Manning moved to Port Charles. Who else would call a meeting of the Port Charles One-Percenters? And wouldn’t that be an awesome band name?
Wow, who would have thought that going to the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend would cut into my General Hospital viewing time so much? It’s a month later, and I’ve just caught up with the current episodes. Of course, that means I have plenty to say about them! Read on for a tale of good men doing bad things, starting with the newest additions: Trey and his father, Joe Scully, Jr.
