Other observances for the week: A couple of Alexis/Patrick scenes. Hmmm. Did anyone else go there? And think happy, hot thoughts? Even for a moment? Before the triple reality hit of (a) the joy of Robin/Patrick; (b) the mandate that Alexis can never be happy; and (c) the fact the powers that be would never […]

Were the hair stylists on GH smoking something a bit wacky in the make-up room in an effort to overcome their depression over current storylines before shooting Wednesday and Thursday’s episodes?

General Hospital character count for Thursday: 22.
