There's A "Family" and "Blood (Is Thicker Than Water)" Quip Here Somewhere
I have a serious question--actually, I have MANY serious questions about the ending of today's General Hospital. Like, "Is Shawn the worst hitman ever?" (yes, he is. Or he is at the very least in the top five--bottom five? I don't know, but this is giving me shades of Dr. Ian Devlin, who I had COMPLETELY forgotten about until just now on account of being pretty skilled at repressing terrible Port Charles memories. Terrible. Shawn, I can't even say I thought you were better than this, because I've actually never thought about you at all,but still: awful). And "Has Carly EVER had a pan that didn't begin and end disastrously?" (Nope!) And "Has anybody else seen Olivia's dress at Ann Taylor and lusted after it?" (because it's super cute, isn't it? It would look absolutely horrendous with my coloring, but still, I can admire from afar).
But the biggest question--and one I'm almost entirely positive I know the answer to*--is that if it turns out that Olivia gets shot instead of Franco and Sonny (as ever, so close yet so far away), will this serve as a wakeup call to, oh, anyone?
How much more Falconeri blood needs to be shed before they realize that Port Charles is a den of sin and that also SOMEONE NEAR SONNY ALWAYS GETS FREAKING SHOT? I'm sorry, if I'm Olivia, I'm saying to myself "This entire family has been shot or shot at repeatedly and it's not like I've ever even had a story to justify my continuing presence in this godforsaken town. FALCONERI, OUT!"
*The answer is that all of them need to get shot at least two more times each and then also die before they start to think that maybe something is off about Port Charles. But the last words on their respective deathbeds will, of course, include a monologue about how sorry they are that Sonny needs to go through this.
