Sunday Surgery: Faces of Death




It's another quickie for me this week! I'm on a mini-vacation in Skaneateles this weekend so I'm not even sure when this will come out. (Publishing on my phone sucks).

This week was a bit dramatic, no? Good stuff for all the actors, that's for damn sure. This is all about Morgan's Death. 

So, have some funeral food and sit on down. 





I give you: The Gallery of Pain  (Available at Jerome's Gallery next Tuesday) 
































OH! Wait a minute...AHAHAHHA--- also almost got 'cha didn't I? You were all: Aw, look at Patrick, all sad about Morgan!! Bloop!

So, in a nutshell...Morgan's "Dead" and I say that because no one is really dead on GH, not even the people I've seen burnt to a crisp before my eyes (Robin) or cut up for body parts (Jake).  And EVERYONE is just reeling. Speaking of reels, there will be a lot of Emmy reels around. 

Who's the most at fault? This seems to be a constant go-around on Twitter and message boards. Is it Ava who messed with Morgan's meds? Sonny who supposedly called off the Julian Mobular hit? Will the bomb have been on Sonny's orders and just not gotten out in time? Did someone else plant it? Looks like Sonny will pay the price for now. Carly's going to chuck his ass out-- and well, like she has so so many times before she finally relents and loves him again *sigh*.  You know. 




Oh! and because this is GH a bunch of weird filler stuff was thrown in. They are getting Lisa LoCicero's contract hours in, right? Genie was on for a hot minute talking about Kevin. I think the Metro is her home away from home. 




And... of course, there's Charlotte. With all the other kids on the show we get to see her? Nope. Don't care. Seriously. Don't care.  Maybe she's Lulu's ...maybe she's Valentin's... maybe maybe. Whatever. 



Oh, and there was a fruit basket.  I guess to keep Nina in the 'loop'? 


I suppose I should wax poetic on the Death of Morgan.  I personally find the story of Ava the most fascinating out of anyone's. Why? Well, there's Maura West who brings a surprising depth to what could be a one note character. I also think that the writers and 'visionaries' for GH are not thinking about the Big Picture. Because if they had, why would they paint Ava into such a disgusting corner? We already have her baggage knee deep and now it's going up her neck. We get it...she's bad. Yet, she loved Morgan. I can feel that. I still say she wanted Kiki and Morgan to fail so she could have him. What is going to happen if the medication switch comes out? Story after story of people hating on Ava.  Again. People now are already hating on Paul, Julian and Sonny. I still say her doing that to his medication was so wrong. The story could have moved on without that rift. 



What's going to happen to Sonny?? ah, ostrification... if that's a word.  So many times in his miserable mobby-life that he's been a pariah in Port Charles. What's one more. Carly will be the grief queen. Kiki will have to fight her frigid feelings when it comes to Dilly.  Ava will be eaten by her guilt.  Michael, all pissed at his father and the Corinthos Name. Oh, Josslyn's all pissy now too--will she move to be with her Daddy?  Maybe she can join Spencer in his boarding school.
 On and on it goes. 

Things I'm looking forward to on the show? Well, I was hoping the Liz/Hayden story would take off and I'd see RoHo and Michael Easton would be together. BUT! You know GH they giveth and they taketh away.

Agreed. Thanks Karen another great SS. Stories just drop and then pop back weeks later. When was the last time we saw Lucas & Brad? Christine & Parker? Aaron? I watch Gh because it's GH. But I'm so bored. Enjoy the rest of you mini-vacation.

Karen, I know people are saying that Charlotte could be Valentin's, but there is a timeline here. I know this is GH, which has no respect for timelines, but, Nathan IS a detective, as I've said here before, I'm sure he can do simple math as to whether it is his child. Unless she met Valentin like 5 mins. after her marriage imploded, I guess it could work then . . .

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I'm glad Morgan is gone. He's been a disaster since he returned as an adult. I'm hoping that Carly & Sonny are over for good. How many times can you go back & forth? It's a shame that they aged Josslyn so much. Maxie is too good for anyone as clueless as Nathan. I hope the new little girl isn't Lulu's! I'd be happy if Lulu never says "baby" again.

Great SS! I agree with you Pat-not sorry to see Morgan gone, although the he probably is still alive somewhere. He has been truly unlikable since they aged him from that sweet, smart little kid. Nathan is as dumb as a rock, welcoming this kid as his without real proof, especially considering what a liar her mother is. Great week for excellent acting though!

Thanks once again for my Sunday read.

I agree that they've painted Ava into a corner. I think she needs to suffer for changing Morgan's meds. She never gets to face consequences. I'd personally like to see Kiki completely lose it and kill herself, whether deliberately out of grief, or accidently with an overdose of sleeping pills. Let Ava lose her daughter as a result of this evil act too. Then we get rid of another unnecessary character.( Obviously all they have left for her now is yoyo time with Dillon.) This would send Ava into a tailspin and lead to some great acting. Perhaps she'd take over the mob with a vengeance then and they can have more of the mob time they love so much on this show.

I'm also one who never wants Morgan back. And his death has finally shown a real consequence for Sonny and family about the results of a life of crime. Even if Sonny proves not to be the one who planted the bomb that lesson remains. Live by the gun (violence) die by the gun.( violence) Life isn't a video game where only the ones you kill die and you get to reset if things don't go the way you want. Please writers...DON'T RESET THIS. Let Morgan stay gone.

I'm glad Morgan is gone and that Carson is over.
But I do like Maxie with Nathan just the Claudette thing is a mess.
I wouldn't mind if Charlotte was Lulu's then the embryo talk would end, I am however more sick of Nina's baby talk than I am of Lulu's embryo talk haha!

It's so frustrating watching #GH at times because of some if these crazy stories! I also hate that they aged Joss so much! It makes no sense that they aged her the way they have! The last girl did a great job playing the character (I forget her name, but it's when she played the corncob). We know Morgan is going to come back. I'm hoping they find out Sonny wasn't responsible for the bomb. We all knew Sonny & Carly would split and I'm sure Nathan & Maxie are headed there. The writers can never let a couple be happy because apparently it goes against their code or something. Charlotte is most likely Lulu & Stavros' daughter and maybe Claudette carried her and doesn't want to give her up. I find it pretty pointless to bring more kids on the show when they don't show the ones already on there.

I think that exact same thing about Charlotte.
As for Joss aging her was stupid, as for the actress who played her (corn girl) she got another role so they recast. Speaking of aging aging kids, it's ridiculous that they severely aged Joss and Morgan but yet Camp and Aiden are still the same age. smh

"I'm on a mini-vacation in Skaneateles"

I never heard of it, and it looks like you are saying Skankateleas ROFL!

"OH! Wait a minute...AHAHAHHA--- also almost got 'cha didn't I? You were all: Aw, look at Patrick, all sad about Morgan!! Bloop!"

Hahahahaha. Good one. :)

"Well, I was hoping the Liz/Hayden story would take off and I'd see RoHo and Michael Easton would be together."

Yeah! Love seeing RoHo and ME together! :)

Why must Sonny always get a pass. Why is Sonny is the only parent to get his butt kissed, While Ava gets crapped by her daughter. The Spencer family is falling apart and Valerie is nowhere to be seen. I don't care that Morgan is dead.

Maybe Julian planted the bomb?

** I agree the timeline has some issues. But, I honestly don't think that matters one bit to these writers. Besides even factoring in stuff like SORASing, JP and SA have made it pretty clear that, as long as it seems to make sense or `work' for them, when writing stuff, that seems to be good enough. That's why I do think that they're going the Valentin route for Charlotte's father. After what happened Friday. I admit, I could be totally wrong. But, I don't think so.

** I agree whole heartedly about Morgan going. I couldn't stand him, from the moment he showed back up on screen, with BC in the role. It was such a 180 degree turn from how he was portrayed as a child. And my dislike for him only intensified, as time went on. (I will admit BC's off screen personality really didn't win him any favors with me, either.) The only time I liked him at all, was after Kiki's shooting, and what followed. As far as Nathan goes, I don't think he's dumb as a rock. I think Maxie hit the nail on the head perfectly when she said he wanted Charlotte to be his daughter so badly, he was being blinded to what Claudette was doing. As I'm not a parent, I can't speak to the parent/child relationship. But, this pretty much came out of nowhere for him. I'm guessing he was a in a whirlwind of mixed emotions when Claudette brought Charlotte to him. But, after Maxie took him aside, and said that, he knew she was right, and that first DNA test was most likely pure bullshit.

** I'm REALLY hoping they go that route. If the magazines and what not are to be believed, this is exactly what will happen. If I'm not mistaken, didn't Dante tell Sonny that all they found were `remains', and they would be sent off for testing, to confirm it was Morgan? If so, the way Dante worded it, it sounded an awful lot like if the remains that were found did turn out to be Morgan, it was in a condition/state that would have made it impossible for his body to be found, let alone survived at all.

** I would have no problem whatsoever if she ended up being Lulu's.(even though the timeline for this, would be more back assward than if Charlotte is Valentin's daughter). I'm at point where if baby/embryo talk starts to happen, I hit fast forward.

I also thought I'd share this article here, For some laughs!

Seriously doubt it.

I couldn't agree more about BC as Morgan. I don't know what it is but I just couldn't stand the actor from the moment he came on. Or character. Ditto his off screen gf who used to play what's her face....Patrick's gf. Too early to think. Haha, yeah....that's it. ;)

** LOL! Yeah, that's exactly how I've felt about BC and the character, from the instant I saw him, too. He's just always rubbed me the wrong way. The best way I can put it, is that he caused the "fingernails on a chalkboard" sensation for me, whenever I saw him, and even more so when he opened his mouth. As far as Kelly Thiebauld (Britt) goes, I didn't like her at first at all. But, about the time she and Nik started to be together, I began to warm up to her. Then, her familial connections with Dr. O, Faison, and Nathan really allowed her to grow. I really liked her friendship with Brad, and I adored the bond she created with Spencer. When she began to evolve and be much more than just "The Britch". That said, I still have no idea whatsoever what she saw in BC, at all.
