GH Weekly Roundup: Week of December 13
Jerry Jacks is not the Balkan.
Rewind to last week. A botherome, yet very amusing patient shows up at General Hospital. Theo Hoffman complains about pain to the staff, who run many tests but find nothing wrong with the man. Yet he persists, leading Robin to diagnose him as being "lonely". So she keeps him over for a night, which lasts a little longer than a single night.
When Theo is finally discharged, he shows up later with a lawsuit on his hands, suing Dr. Drake, Dr. Webber, and GH for inadequete care. He does not, howeverm sue Robin, his actual doctor. He appears to have grown fond of Robin for helping him.
And now, Theo is also going to be arguing for Brenda on the lawsuit against the other man she killed. That's interesting, since when Theo was revealed to be the Balkan, we assume he wants Brenda dead. There's a lot going on right now!
When Jerry arrived, I was pleased. He is one of my favorite villans, and he of course knew that Jason would be there. To get away, Jerry shot an innocent man (surprise!) and then crashed his van of a hill. He got away, and went to Jax's house to see his niece and torment Carly. When Jax walked in, Jerry threatened to shot Carly, which surprised me. I thought for sure he would never kill Carly or the kids, but I guess I was wrong. But this time, Jax is planning on killing Jerry, which is also surprising to me.
Siobhan was also revealed to be in cohoots with The Balkan. And now that Lucky nows she has been lying to him for months, it will be interesting to see what goes down.
On to Sonny and Brenda... Sonny bout Brenda a house that has been all decked out for the holidays. I'm not sure why, but the house reminds me of the lakehouse I used to go to when I was small.
Something that is interesting is that Carly has given her Brenda hate a little respite in order to hate on Abby. I haven't really talked about Michael and Abby in my columns, because I'm not all that interested in the storyline. Kristina and Carly have problems with Abby, and I think I do to. She's just too old for Michael.
Also going down this week at GH was Robin finally catching Lisa stealing drugs for Johnny. But, Johnny was able to concoct a lie about Lisa helping an illegal immigrant who was very sick. He even brought in a real life immigrant who was sick. Wow. The resources these mobsters have. I hope that Robin will be able to talk to the woman and be able to prove that Lisa is insane.
Folks, this week we have a wedding on our hands. It's been a while, especially a Spencer and/or Quatermaine wedding. I'm hoping to see a lot of characters at the Quatermaine mansion. Needless to say, I'm excited!
