Post-Francofrenia: Today's General Hospital Brought to You by Ambien
I missed at least half of yesterday's episode, so imagine my surprise when we were suddenly in Spain with Skye and Jax for much of today. Yes, Skye and Jax. For much of the episode. While it was nice to see these two doing something other than eating at the Metro Court restaurant, I never really cared much whether or not Skye found Lorenzo's money. And suddenly some woman named Fernando was thrown into the mix? Isn't Fernando a man's name?
I was completely bored with Fernando, and while Skye eventually found Lorenzo's money, I was too sleepy at that point to care.
Oh, and Liz and Nikolas' baby is still missing. Yawn. Is it wrong that I really don't care about that either?
As I mentioned, we did have supply closet sex between Matt and Maxie, which was fun ...
But it was followed up by a very odd conversation between Maxie and Michael, of all people, in which she sought out Michael's advice regarding her impulse gratitude sex with the man who saved her Uncle Mac. It's always fun to hear Maxie go off on one of her tangents; it always produces some of the best lines of the show ("It wasn't like, Mac's gonna live, where's the nearest flat surface?"). And I'm guessing she probably would spill her troubles to just about anyone who would listen, even though an 18-year-old boy is a really strange choice for that conversation. But I suppose the real purpose of this conversation was to show that Michael is still haunted by Carter (who he flashed back to while Maxie was talking).
I see that Maya is still glued to Ethan's side, "woe is me-ing" about how she froze in the wake of the shooting. Was I bored by this scene, too? Like a hooker in handcuffs. I do have to admit though, I've always enjoyed Kristina's scenes with Ethan, and still think that maybe something will develop there at some point.
Oh yeah, and Claire wants to have Sonny's baby. Um, where did that come from? I'm a bit baffled by Claire's thought process there, although I had to laugh when she said to Sonny, "clearly you have no problem conceiving." Damn straight. He's the only person in The Chuckles who's actually more likely to produce a child than Liz. And that's saying something.
By the way, I know I already posted a photo of this outfit, but really, what in the world is Claire wearing? It's very Eliot Spitzer's hooker.
Of course, Sonny denied Claire's offer to procreate with her, but he's still confident that he'll bed the "lady prosecutor," calling after her as she left, "You'll be back! You'll want me!" Heck, if it's more entertaining than what we had to sit through today, I might actually be all for it.
