This week was a critical week for all of us Port Charles citizens. Sonny had emergency surgery, Kristina returned, Ava has a new lawyer who gets her charges dropped. and Morgan went after Julian. In analyzing this week for all the citizens, I feel everyone escaped one thing or another. I, Dr. Susan, of Port Charles General Hospital, am giving my medical analysis, care plans, and treatment for this week’s critical cases…(Disclaimer: all of my patients mentioned below have signed agreements forfeiting their HIPAA rights).
Sonny escaped death after his heart stopped. Carly made the decision for Patrick to do the surgery after Sonny’s sons gave her the right to decide on their behalf. After a long surgery, he woke up when Carly asked him to look at her. He tells her he is sorry he missed their wedding. He tells everyone that he loves them and Milo guards him. My care plan for Sonny includes getting out of the business, and life without guards. His treatment would include a lot of TLC and not going into warehouses without back up if he insists he is remaining in the mob!
Elizabeth felt guilty about her past dealings with Sam. Even though Jake tells her he will never leave her, she needs to come clean with him and Sam, which would be my care plan for her. This would also be her treatment which is a clean conscience, even if she loses Jake and all of her other friends.
Ric loses his wife to Franco, of all people. My care plan for him includes living an honest life, which I have recommended to him before, but he has not been able to follow. Or he and Elizabeth beg forgiveness from Elizabeth, once again, when she comes clean. The treatment for Rick would be to get wounds stitched another town–a Geographical Cure, we call it.
Lulu walked in on Dante praying in the chapel. My care plan for him is to tell his wife what he and Valerie did and beg her to understand his feelings at the time. The treatment would be for Dante and Lulu to come together as a couple for treatment and have a better marriage because of it.
Ava got a new attorney, Scott Baldwin–this after she tried to steal her confession from him when he was DA. She should have just taken her chances with another attorney. Ava and Scott had some dirty dealings, so now they panic when they see a ransacked room. Scott still wanted money for the missing flash drive containing Ava confessing to killing Connie. Ava is too smart for Scott and goes home. She dies her hair blond again. After all, she will have more fun! Will Ava have an ally in Paul? My care plan and treatment would be the same for them: suck it up and face the music! Eventually, they might have adjoining cells at Pentonville.
Julian maintained his innocence concerning Sonny’s shooting. He told Lucas he is innocent even as Lucas told him he has seen cases like Sonny die the ER. Julian also plead his case with Alexis when she returned with Kristina. Alexis seemed to believe him for now. My care plan and treatment for Julian are the same: leave the mob if you are still in it and find out who is framing you once and for all so you can live a healthy, long life.
Nathan told Valerie that he knows about her and Dante. They agreed to never speak of it again. What will happen if Valerie is pregnant? Will she lose her new family and get Dante for herself? Will Dillon step up to save the day? My care plan and treatment for Valerie would be the same: leave town and raise the baby (if there is one). Olivia did it with Julian’s baby. If she could do it, so can Valerie, as they are both in good health. Olivia has followed my my recommendations for her, and she and her baby are in good health. But, as soap life goes, once the cat is out of the bag, a miscarriage might happen!
Michael finally forgave Sonny and they reconciled. My care plan for Michael would be for Michael to help his dad recover like Sonny once helped him. The treatment plan would be taking the Corinthos business back along with the Quartermaine one, thus honoring both of Michael’s fathers and healing him.
Hot-headed Morgan took off to avenge his dad’s shooting. He had a gun and was looking for Julian. When the penthouse was empty, he found something to telling him where Julian is hiding. Will he succeed with his revenge or will one of his brothers stop him, possibly get hurt in the process? My care plan and treatment would be an ideal safe outcome for everyone. But, this is Port Charles, after all. A little blood and violence must fall! We will see what happens to in the Morgan/Julian fight next week and if Morgan can be stopped and get the treatment he emergently needs.
Take good care of yourselves, and stay tuned for more bettering and worsening of health in Port Charles next week!
