There was a LOT that I was planning to say about today's General Hospital--all right, that is a lie. Possibly the biggest lie I've ever told. I have things to say about today's General Hospital, but certainly not a lot of them, especially since they all boil down to "ugh". Like, Britt scheming with Spencer to get Nikolas back; is there any bigger guarantee of a romantic reunion than faking the disappearance of a small child? That tends to get people hot and bothered, right? Although it IS Nikolas we're talking about, so there was actually a chance that this could have worked in Britt's favor, grossly. Ugh. I'm intrigued in the identity of Fake Luke, but not so intrigued that I've given any brainpower into thinking of who this dastardly man could be; it's more the "Can we fast forward to the big reveal so that I can complain about it with concrete facts at my disposal?" Also, Julian saying "Peace out, bitch" made me uncomfortable in a variety of ways. Ugh. See what I mean? What more can be said? Did anything else even happen? I know Tracy was on, begging for a heart for Alice, but (a) did she really think that a lack of heroin is the only criteria for an organ transplant and also (b) ugh.
The point of the story is that there were things to be said, maybe even incorporating full sentences and a paragraph or two, but then THIS happened and my BLOOD WENT COLD and I am TERRIFIED TO GO TO SLEEP.
Spencer: She was the best person ever, but I never got to meet her.
Josslyn: She's beautiful. Do you know what she was like?
Spencer: No. Every time I ask my dad about her, he gets really sad, so I just stopped asking.
Guys, they showed a picture of Courtney. After paying her ridiculous compliments ("the best person?" The best at what? There are so many jokes about women of ill-repute and also massive dumbness that I want to make, but it's getting me tongue-tied and my fingers are cramping), they showed her onscreen. Why? What is happening? She won't come back from the dead, right? She can't be a ghost, can she? I feel profoundly unsettled and will be sleeping with the lights on. So much of GH's history is forgotten and ignored, but THIS DARK ERA is untouchable? Why?
