Desperation Leads Brook and Lisa to Play With Pills
If there was a lesson in today's General Hospital, it's that desperate women and pharmaceuticals just don't mix. Brook, on the verge of a one-way ticket back to Bensonhurst and thisclose to cashing in big courtesy of Carly, continues to pump Dante with beer laced with pills as a sure way to get him into bed. Honestly, I was really uncomfortable watching this whole thing unfold, and if Coleman hadn't shown up when he did, I think I would have fast-forwarded through much of it. (I'm sorry, I simply cannot fast-forward through Coleman, no matter what kind of crazy is going on around him).
Later, at the end of the hour, Lulu walks in on Brook taking advantage of a very inebriated Dante back at his apartment. From the look on Lulu's face, I'm guessing it's all about to hit the fan in tomorrow's episode.
Meanwhile, while this mess is going down at Dante's apartment, Jason is trying to convince Carly to give up her revenge scheme against Dante and Lulu. This was noteworthy only because the "M" in Jason's "Welcome Home" sign had fallen down once again behind Carly's head. Sure, "Welcome Ho e" may get less funny at some point ... but not yet. Hee hee.
Not to be outdone by Brook on the Ladies of Port Charles Desperation Scale, Lisa manages to out-crazy even herself once again. And we thought mutilating photos was bad. This time, she breaks into Robin and Patrick's house for a second time, stealing Robin's HIV meds and later throwing them in the garbage back at General Hospital. Girlfriend is certifiable. I hope they're getting that room ready at Shadybrook, because I swear she's coming any minute now.
Other things that stuck out to me in this episode: I'll admit it, Morgan visiting Sonny because he was afraid he was lonely and telling him he loved him got me all misty. It is his father after all. Of course, he may have just been buttering the old man up in hopes of scoring some free Yankees tickets from him :)
Also, I loved that Coleman wanted to get Kate's calendar from Lulu so he could arrange a getaway with the missing-in-action magazine editor. See, there is a big softie underneath that cool, mustached exterior ...
