Yes, General Hospital has been making a big killing at the ratings these past few weeks, thanks to Sam’s baby switch. This is also due to the big viewer share that is comprised mainly of, yes you’ve guessed it right, women! But let us have a simple rundown of what happened at GH on the week of October 22nd.
Back in Port Charles, Duke was seen kicking and shooting Jason into the water. He also killed poor Bernie. Then came Ian who broke up Stefano and Kate, kidnapped Robin who later went into comatose due to Ewen. He became responsible for a lot of deaths by manipulating Trey and Kristina. Anna’s integrity as the police commissioner is placed in question. Sam then sets out to look for Jason even as people who believed him to be dead were already grieving. Carly felt really bad and gave Sonny a good tongue lashing, believing that he has not mourned enough for Jason.
Moving on, lies continue to build up as Jose lied to Trey that it was Sonny who killed Jason. Then comes Todd’s and Diane’s schemes of letting out the secret behind the paternity of Sam’s baby. Monica, keeping the fact that AJ is still alive and breathing, makes people wonder what other secrets is she keeping from everybody else? In the meantime, Connie was acting strangely and was eventually committed. People were also shocked to see Diane defending Todd after he replaced her with Heather. Some of the fans also loved the Quartemaine scenes as well.
So far, the fans love the new plots for GH and are giving the writers the thumbs up they surely deserve. It looks like Monica will now be given a story, and the return of AJ and the baby switch has made it more exciting. Add to the fact that people were wondering if Diane had lost her mind when she decided to defend Todd. Whatever happened to her loyalty as a friend? Also, people are appreciating the fact that Sam is going on her gut feeling that Jason is alive – just like how she believed her baby is alive as well. But other than that, people are in love with GH right now with its exciting plot and surprise twists. With a little bit of intrigue and love stories, the show will be unstoppable at the ratings.
Since its stint back in 1963, GH has proven to be one of the strongest soaps to hit television screen that depicts the life and trials of the residents, mobsters, and the hospital staff of Port Charles. It continues to entertain viewers with its exciting twists and surprises making it one of the well-loved TV shows of all time. The people behind it truly know how to keep the interest of its viewers by coming up with cliff-hanger scenes, if you know what I mean.
