Can the General Hospital writers get any less creative?
It’s a rhetorical question.
I mean, c’mon.
First, they have the Sonny/Carly/Jax whose the daddy if there even is a baby storyline, with Carly going to Jason and asking HIM to lay claim to the fatherhood of the possible baby that turned out to not be a baby.
Ummmmm. Can someone say recycled from the yesteryear when oh so long ago Carly asked Jason to lay claim to Michael’s paternity?
You can read Kara’s previous blog about the Carly/Jason weirdness from long ago.
The most recently recycled storyline involves Lulu Spencer (Laura Webber Spencer’s daughter) killing Logan Hayes (Scott Baldwin’s son) with Maxie and Johnny trying to convince Lulu that they have to get rid of the body because Scott will not believe Lulu and will prosecute her for murder.
So here’s the familiarity.
Years ago, when Scott was married to Laura,he helped Laura’s stepfather Rick Webber, bury nurse Theresa Carter in the backyard after Laura accidentally killed her. Then Rick injected Laura with a drug to erase her memory of the event.
All of this never surfaced until Laura was about to remarry Luke in 2002 and she started having all these flashbacks in the Webber attic, the same place that Theresa was killed. Rick, who came back for the wedding, tried to inject Laura with something to calm her down, she struck and killed Rick. It was believed that this led to Laura’s eventual catatonia.
Lulu (Julie Marie Berman) eventually discovered that it was Scott who really killed Rick.

The one thing that Lulu is desperately afraid of is winding up the same way as her mother.

So I ask….

Is this where the writers are going?
Are they going to put Lulu in Shadybrook too?
And what in the heck was the point of introducing Logan into Port Charles as Scott’s son, when he has had so little storyline and now he’s dead.
There could have been a much better nod to history if Scott’s son and Laura’s daughter developed a long-term relationship….But that was never to be.
So again I ask, what is the point to all this?
