Its a purge, an upheaval, and everything is on its ear! Anna, the enforcer of law, has become the avenger. She has taken the law into her own hands yet again. Sloane, who came to town as a poor man's Dudley Dooright, became a pawn/puppet to the Cassadines and now is covering up Anna's crime. Nikolas, our sweet and caring Prince has ordered the death of a young woman. Olivia faked her child's death and was ready to lie to her other child about it. Carly had a well reasoned and logical argument for Sonny to wait to avenge Dukes death. Obrecht did a favor for Ned and Olivia. These people are totally out of character. What's next? Is Sonny going to open a kitten rescue? Will Julian join a monastery? Will Ava sling hash at Kelly's? These turnabouts are heading to a bigger picture and an exciting summer!
Jake will remember who he is.  He has to find out on his own. If someone tells him that he is Jason, it will mean nothing if he doesn't feel it. It would be a cheat. What circumstances will cause this epic event? And who will have to face the hitman/enforcer with their lies? Think of the impact on Port Charles. Sonny? He has tried to kill Jake, he hates his friendship with Carly and he is losing Shawn. Sam? She is in a serious relationship with Patrick. They are raising two children together. Ok, one is Jason's son, but Sam asked Patrick to be the daddy. She is mothering Emma. Julian? Awkward!!! Monica? Yes, she is still in town...just hanging out with Jocelyn and Aidan and Alice... She gets her son back. She is two for two in the dead son is really alive sweepstakes. Liz? Yup..she loses at love, yet again. She knows the truth. And her guilty knowledge is going to blow up in her face. Nik? He a puzzler.. Is he good yet misguided? Is he evil with good manners? I can't wait to see where he lands on the karmic meter.
Sloane keeps talking about nailing Julian and dismantling the Jerome organization. Not a single mention of Sonny's mob. Why not? Sloane has secrets. Big ones.
Jordan makes a deal to save Shawn's sorry ass. He was truly cruel to her. He was offended that she stopped him from killing Jake. She could have just sat down and filed her nails. He isn't a very good hitman. Seriously.. Think about it. Name his successes. The only thing he hit was Jordan's egg. Shawn Butler, you ARE the father.
Ric took a bride! Of course he has an agenda. Have you figured it out yet? ELQ stock. Nina is the pipeline to the shares that Franco holds. There's always an angle with Ric. And when Madeleine shows up, you will get your answer. How will Sonny relate to his new sister in law? Chances are good the Michael won't be asking Aunt Nina to babysit.
Who is this woman? Is she Ava? Or someone else? We won't know for sure just yet. But, that face will attract loads of attention. Think of the cops...and Sonny!
Moving on...
Poor Lulu! She has her hands full. Her father is Public enemy #1. Her little brother in law is "dead", and now she has to deal with her cousin having a crush on her husband. Said cousin is getting a job throwing her right is the path of Dante. I smell smoke....Will Julian leave the mob behind? He loves the power. I can't see him just slinking away from it.
So much is happening and nobody who is watching is completely satisfied. Know this, everything you are seeing is like a building block. You can't see the final product. What you are seeing is a mystery to you. When all the pieces come together it will make sense. Soaps are like a river. Moving, changing and never the same from year to year. You may get your wish for a favorite couple to unite, or reunite, but they won't necessarily be a couple in six months. You may hate it. You may vow to quit watching. Then..something electrifying happens! And they reel you back in. True fans don't pin their whole reason for watching on one person or one couple. True fans see the potential for growth. And that's what keeps us watching. Till next time.....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Anna! She did it..she shot Carlos in cold blood. Shocked as I was, I was cheering. He was so smarmy, taunting, and cocky that I would have done it myself. Sloane will help her cover it up, of course. He likes her. Who else wanted to smack Hayden upside the head. When she challenged Nik like she did, I could just hear a gun cocking. Liz and Nik are safe for now, but soon they will have to pay the piper. One thing did make me blink twice. Sam and Jake don't have that spark. I don't think its because of the actors. I think too much time has passed for them to pick up where they left off. I'm not even sure he belongs with Liz, either. Time will tell. One thing is for sure. Monica needs to know. It would be wonderful if Jason remembered who he is before Nik takes over ELQ. Can you see the power play? It would be epic. Another thing is, how will Sonny react to his best friend's resurrection? Carly will be overjoyed. Sam, once she gets over the shock, will try reconcile this man with the man she loved. But, is he? How will this affect Patrick and Emma?
Ava will be back very soon. The end of this week or the beginning of next. Has her brush with death softened her? Not really likely. She has some issues, like reclaiming her baby. How will she do this while avoiding a murder charge and escaping? The bigger question is how will Julian get out of this hole he dug for himself? He was so cocky and sleazy while speaking with Sonny that I wanted Sonny to punch his lights out. And I find Julian kind of sweet and handsome. I feel bad for Alexis, Sam and Lucas. Julian is headed to a place that usually means death or prison. They've already done prison. I hope they find a way to create some kind of uneasy coexistence with Sonny. I truly enjoy William DeVry.
Now let's peek into the future... Valerie. She is going to apply at the PCPD. We know what this means, right? She will be crossing paths with Dante all day and now they have the job in common! Can Lulu deal with it? My guess is no. Maxie may even feel a bit insecure over the perky and capable Ms. Spencer. Picture it... Dante is in a tizzy over a case and Valerie offers her feedback and a sympathetic ear...not conducive to a happy marriage. And I am sure she will rush to offer comfort over Olivia and the baby. About Duke. Duke was a wonderful character. Many years and many scenarios molded him into a sexy, enigmatic and awesome man. His romance with Anna spanned so many years and so many obstacles that whenever they were together, we knew something was going to part them. He deserved a better sendoff than he got. My hope is that he was drugged and spirited away to return at a later time. Thank you,  Ian Buchanan! It was always a pleasure.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OK.. I admit it. I am really disappointed in Liz. I can see her motives, but she should realize that lying to someone to get what you want is a Ric move. This is going to blow up in her face big time. She is going to regret it as the guilt eats her alive. Anna was in such denial about Duke and his involvement with the botched hit was painful to watch. Its so obvious that Sloane is in love with her and wants her happy. Now that Carlos the inept has killed Duke, Anna can divert those emotions into dismantling the mob. Taking down Julian Jerome is going to be more important to her than taking down Faison ever was. Sloane has a huge hard on to break the Jerome's and their organization. Julian had better watch out. His right hand man, Carlos, won't be around anymore so he will need someone to fill in. Jake will do nicely. Imagine when he remembers he is Jason. Working for Sonny's enemy and the police won't go down well. Speaking of Jason, its possible that he may keep quiet to Sam at first. He would put her happiness and security above his own. He stayed out of Jakes life to keep him safe. He may do the same for Danny. Besides, he is up to his neck in a police sting.
Is it just me or would anyone else like to see Maxie or Liz ask Obrecht for advice? I think it would be a hoot! Leisl needs a friend. She grew on me.  Britta was not on long enough. She can handle Spencer much better than Nikolas and the kid loves her. Instead he gets Hayden. Nina would be a better option. At least Nina wants to be a mom. Speaking of Nina, she deserves much better than Franco. He doesn't trust her and treats her like she has no brains. But... I think they will get married. Why? Because crazy follows crazy. Another couple that needs help? Try Alexis and Julian. She is law and order, he is crime and chaos. Its all about to blow up. Watch kiddies..the debris field could be huge. And what about the children? Sam.. Lucas..unnamed baby boy and Danny?
Patrick and Sam are a nice couple. They are a team and not in a "duck! Those bullets are meant for us" kind of way. Danny and Emma are bonding too. Emma has had so much loss in her young life, I wouldn't want her to lose another mom. She lost Robin, Sabrina, baby Gabriel and Duke. Give the kid a win!
Sabrina brings out the gentler side of Michael. With her he is more human. Sonny and Carly are going to make baby steps thanks to her. Morgan will feel like he is invisible and that will push him into something spectacularly stupid. Traditionally summer brings the younger cast forward. So look for TJ and Molly, Valerie, Dante and Lulu, Nathan and Maxie as well as Spencer, Emma, Cam and Josslyn to be more prominent.
There's a wedding coming. A surprise wedding. And the live shows will begin with a shooting. Sweeps and live shows... Things to watch for? Actors using real names instead of characters...flubbed lines...forgotten lines and cues...and inappropriate laughter. Enjoy, kids! See you next week!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


How was your week? Aside from the rainy season creeping in, mine was mostly uneventful. Now that sweeps are here, some storylines will reach their climax and new ones will begin. Ric and Liz, Maxie, Spinelli, Nathan and Ellie, Duke and Anna, Dante and Lulu, Patrick and Sam..all of these couples will experience changes. Judging from some of the leaks, there will be at least one wedding, perhaps two! We know that a murder mystery was teased for May. If I had to guess, I would say its Hayden. Since Dukes death will be kind of obvious..Think about it... She will have lots of people who want her gone. The list will be long, too. The suspect list; Ric, for obvious reasons, Jake, he was taken advantage of by Hayden, costing him Liz....Liz for the same reasons, Nikolas because she made threatening statements to him and he told her he would bury her alive, then that pesky blackmail, Carly, because its well known they hated each other, Pete the fake face Jake, because she and he were partners in crime, so to speak. There may be more by the time she is found dead.
Olivia and her bundle of joy will take center stage for at least a day. Why? Sam knows the baby is really Julian's. Will this be the catalyst to send Ned and Olivia out of town and off the canvas? And who will be running the hotel in Olivia's absence? Dante and Lulu? Laura??? I don't know, but it will shake things up. Power plays always do. Unless Olivia opts to let Carly run it and they just split the profits.
I am pretty much over Spencer complaining that he is hideous and a monster. Nik! You have some serious bucks. Get that kid some counseling! His whole rant is so over the top, I want to run screaming from the room. Maybe some people enjoy the precocious love quadrangle. I am not among their numbers. Let kids be kids. Beg for a cell phone, complain about dance class, maybe fight with a friend. This idea that children are miniature adults is wrong. Let them be kids!
Duke is going to die. Murdered, to be precise. Mob hit or angry enforcer? Anna will be rocked right down to her sensible shoes. I think she and Duke will talk, and reach an accord. Then he is off to Wraithville. Sam and Patrick will comfort Emma, and Patrick will be the shoulder Anna needs. This may force the Robin issue into the open. Sloane will also understand what Anna is going through. He responds by making her focus on the case and ultimately on him.
Lulu might seem unreasonable where Valerie is concerned but she really isn't. Valerie is clinging to Dante because he was the one to take care of her when her mother died. She might not have any designs on Dante yet, but she will definitely get there. Valerie is emotionally fragile and Dante is too consoling.
Luke is in the mental hospital while TG is on vacation. Facing what he had become will provide more meaty scenes with him and others. Tracy is just the rock he needs to hang onto. When this is over, Luke will be different.
Spinelli has been kind of underhanded and skeevy in his pursuit of Maxie. I have a feeling that he will use baby Georgie to get what he wants. I hope I am wrong, I really do. I like the character, just not as a snake. I don't want Maxie to settle for him out of some sense of duty, either.
Nina seems to be coming into her own. I like that she is standing up for herself and not being led around. Franco treats her like a doll. Fun to play with, but don't give her any sharp objects. I don't want her to be crazy, but feisty. A woman coming into her own without having to explain herself constantly would be so refreshing!
Well, very soon the Jason reveal will happen. Look out! Watch your breakables! Things are going to explode!
Till next time.....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May sweeps are here so let's sit down and discuss what's coming!
The hits are coming. Not just bullets, but Magic Milo and his band of barely dressed beefcake. Epiphany will sing, the younger ladies will do a musical number and..Duke and Anna will tango! Spencer will be doing a tribute to Moms, so look for a ghost of Courtney to appear. Emma will be MIA when she is due onstage. Nathan and Maxie, as well as Spinelli and Ellie will end up dancing together. Maxie is uber jealous of Ellie and Nathan. She might not be inclined to stay with Spinelli out of duty. Lucy will orchestrate some reunions as well.
The ball will go for three days. Toward the end, all hell will break loose. Someone will die, others will be in mortal peril. Liz will have to give her answer to Ric. Will he be exposed before she makes a huge mistake? Sonny hates Jake, and what happens at the Nurse's Ball will either erase it or escalate it. We are also going to witness someone realizing that Jake is Jason. Perhaps Jake himself? Will it come out in a public way? Maybe..but with the chaos, maybe the lightbulb moment will be lost. I don't believe for a minute that it will be that easy. Sam will be married to Patrick first. Either that or so intertwined with him and the kids as a family, she won't know what to do.
Olivia is about to drop her baby into the big mess that is parentage. I have a feeling that she and Ned will get married in the hospital, or soon after. Both characters are leaving so..let them leave as a family with a secret that will rear its ugly head down the road. Besides.. Ned wants to get out of town before Tracy learns that Franco has Ned's shares.
The mob war is about to explode in a big and ugly way. Let's face it, Anna and Duke still love each other so the tango will be their last connection. Why? You saw the sweeps preview! Sloane and Anna stumble upon a body. The murder mystery? Who killed Bruce??? That's right. Bruce, Dukes bodyguard, will be taking the big dirt nap. Or going into some weird portal to return later if needed. Duke will make critical errors in his quest for revenge. Anna will be working with Sloane to find the killer and perhaps a new love. Sonny will feel guilty like nobody's business. He put Duke in this position. He will have to step back into the bosses chair sooner than anticipated.
Ric is desperate to lock Liz into marriage before his scheme is discovered. Too bad that Carly made "Saving Private Jake" her mission. Now comes the fun part. Carly makes a very public and embarrassing (to Ric and Hayden) exposure of the phony wife scam. Jake, Liz and Ric are caught off guard. Things change in a heartbeat, but bullets start flying. I don't expect that Carlos will be in town much longer since he was the one who shot Bruce. Its not his fault! He was aiming for Duke. Alexis and Julian will probably have to be on opposite sides for a while. She will give her "I can't be with you while you are doing this" speech, and he will give her his pat "You knew all along what I do" answer. Jake will be the hero, but Sonny won't like it... But wait! There's more! Jason will be found out. Once he knows who he is, how will he react? He is not the same Jason who was shot by Raison (literally). His outlook on mob violence has changed. He has become a more rounded and insightful man. Oddly enough, he feels a connection to Sam but not a romantic one. How this plays out will be the summer story. Jason is actually in possession of a code of honor. How will this affect his love life?  So much more.... I will continue this next week if you like. Let me know on our Facebook page!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did anyone else expect Michael to start foaming at the mouth? I love Chad Duell, but his drunken Michael does not float my boat. Its always the same. He squints and walks with a sideways lean. His arm flies up and he starts yelling. He looks like a psycho Jacob Marley. Michael should never drink. He needs to take up yoga. Anyone who lives with a drinker can tell you that alcohol doesn't mask a personality. It enhances it. Michael is an ugly, nasty drunk.
Dear Nedly gave 11% of his ELQ stock to Franco. I truly thought that Olivia would stop him and tell the truth. I was disappointed, but I choose to overlook it because Ned declared his love. Golly Whompus I am going to miss him.
There is a spoiler out there that Olivia starts cramping. Who wants to bet that they must deliver the baby and it will need blood? Blood that must come from the father who isn't Ned? The truth will come out and Julian will be happy and mad. Alexis might feel a tad overwhelmed by this. My guess is that it may cause tension between her and Julian. Ned will feel foolish and sidelined. Losing those shares is going to really hurt now...
I must confess that I am looking forward to Ric being exposed. Publicly would be awesome. Let him find someone as twisted as he is..like Nina. But not Nina. She is too good for him.
Maxie seemed to backpedal on how she and Spin got back together. I think she will drift back to Nathan. Ellie is in town so she and Nathan could "date" and make Maxie and Spinelli rethink what they really want.
Dante and Lulu are coming into conflict. Dante likes Valerie and wants to help her get on her feet. Lulu is not so generously inclined. After all, Valerie tried to cut Luke's throat. Things like that make a girl uneasy. Valerie will play the "Lulu hates me"card.Lulu will blow things out of proportion due to anger and jealousy. Dante will defend poor Valerie. Fasten your seatbelts. Turbulence ahead!
The mob war is about to blow wide open. This will make several things happen. First, Duke is going to be on the wrong side of a bullet. Sonny will be forced into defending his territory. Sloane and Anna will get closer. Julian and Alexis will end up on opposite sides, at least for the short term. There will be gunplay at the Nurse's Ball. Jake will end up saving several people, including Sonny and Carly. This may trigger his memory. Will he rush and tell everyone he is Jason? Nope. He doesn't want to endanger his loved ones so he keeps quiet. He still finds himself drawn to Liz, however. Liz is a sweet yet romantically challenged woman. She wants a home and family to come home to at the end of the day. Unfortunately, she is so in love with the idea of love that she always overlooks the shortcomings in her paramour. Lucky was her rescuer. He saved her emotionally when she got raped, so she overlooked his tendency to be high handed and unyielding. She was only able to see it when he got hooked on drugs and Maxie. Zander was no love match for her either. He was convenient. Ric is a manipulator in every incarnation. She will always fall for his lies and she is guaranteed to be hurt by him. Nik filled a void. He was really the best of all her loves combined. Too much has happened for them to be together right now. Jason has always been her love. From the time she was a lost and troubled teen, he has been there for her. The night of the blackout, she walked in on Lucky and Maxie humping in her bed. Did they show remorse? Shock? Shame? No. They looked at her like she was intruding. So, she went to talk to Jason. Her friend. But, that night found Jason hurting over Sam doing Ric. The two hurt and lonely people hooked up. It was sweet and hot and romantic. The next morning, Jason made her breakfast. Neither of them knew the condoms were defective.....
Back to the present. Word is that Patrick proposes and Sam accepts. This will make the Jason reveal all the more poignant. She will be married to Patrick and be torn between her two loves. Hopefully she won't be carrying Patrick's baby. Patrick is as fertile as Sonny. The thing that sticks with me is that Jason feels no pull to Sam other than seeing her in his dreams. Kind of like when he met Hayden.... I don't think he is the same man emotionally that he used to be. He has a soft and playful side now. The old Jason was cold to people. He often looked bored with them. This Jason is..well..fun and interesting! I can't wait to see what the new Jason will be when his memory returns. I can hope that the part of him who loved Monica returns. That's all for now. Happy Viewing!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
i everyone! I hope you all had a great week. I have been pondering some things that need to be addressed before they drive me up the wall. Carly! She is hell bent on exposing Hayden and has the tools right in front of her. She owns the damned hotel and can check the bills and payments. If she looked, she would see that two lobsters, champagne and dessert were charged to Ric Lansing. Maybe his credit card held the room. Even when you pay cash, almost every hotel needs a credit card on file. Wake up! Another plot hole that needs to be filled. Couple that and the timing of the supposed fight between Hayden and Jake and Voila!! When did Helena have time to implant the chip and brainwash Jake if he was hit walking away from Hayden? The words came out of Carly's mouth when she was yelling at Jake over the appearance of his "wife". She asked him about the convenience of her timing, yet never caught on to her own reference to Helena. Drives me wacky...
Let's talk about Valerie. She is sad and adrift as well as lost. Dante has talked to her and comforted her when she was tried to kill Luke. Lulu is wary of her, and Valerie can't quite trust Lulu. She knows that Lulu will protect Luke at any cost because she felt that for her mother. She will continue to bond with Dante, and that will make Lulu insecure. This will cause problems in their marriage. They love each other, but they will fight.
Morgan and Kiki never expected the fallout from their actions to be so negative. Sonny and Carly are as concerned for Michael as they are for Avery. Morgan, to his credit is only trying to help Sonny while getting a bit of revenge on Michael. Kiki is misguided by the anger she feels over the loss of her mother and the shabby, degrading treatment she received from Michael. At the MetroCourt with Morgan, she knew that she was burning a bridge, but she felt it necessary to get Avery away from Michael. What truly aggravated me was Michael and his whiny speech to Sabrina about Kiki. He was hoping she was telling the truth about loving him forever, yet here she was with Morgan! What did he expect? She did her best to shelter him from the truth, and tried to explain that to him. He pushed her away and even went so far as pushing his sexual escapades in her face. He was cruel and nasty to her when she walked in on him with Rosalie. He not only showed contempt for Kiki, but he treated Rosalie like a prostitute. He used her and didn't care that she was embarrassed by the whole encounter.
Silas was conveniently in town so the hospital encounter with Nina could happen. That puts her in the vicinity of Avery, who is there to be checked out prior to going home with Kiki. Michael is also not where he is supposed to be. Another coincidence. Lucas is called to the ER before he can examine her, so Silas volunteers. Here's what I think.. Silas took a cheek swab of the baby and it shows a preliminary match for Ava. The end of Friday's episode showed a lurker sneaking into the room with the baby, who was conveniently alone. Who snatches her? My guess is Silas. He will harvest some bone marrow while he has the opportunity. Since the baby will be missing, Dante will investigate. Nathan will be on the case as well. The baby will be found safe and sound, bit the questions will remain. Silas will rush off to New York with the key to saving Ava. Ava would never agree to using her daughter's bone marrow, so Silas will tell her he is giving her the drugs to end her life. She will be saved, but boy will she be pissed!
Ned is sweet and kind. He will do everything he can to honor his commitment to Olivia. His misguided attempt to put the brakes on Franco will make him give up some precious ELQ stock. Ned is not completely stupid though. He will have to ask Michael to step down as CEO. Moot point, since Nik will be taking over the company very soon. The repercussions of this will be widely felt and will shake up lives and loyalties! The smallest stone can cause the biggest ripple. Some little things that will come back to bite people are ready to drop..such as:
The ring at Patrick's house.
Cam seeing Hayden with Ric.
The guy Ric hired. He will appear where he will be seen by Carly or Liz.
Morgan changing the meds. Alice knows he was in the house unsupervised.
Carly hiding the truth from Sonny about Jake.
Duke moving ahead with the hit on Jordan without Sonny's sanction.
Carlos hitting Sonny's shipment. Julian doesn't like Carlos acting on his own.
Nik burning the ballots.
Kiki and her temper will get her into serious trouble and her whole scheme to get Avery will unravel.
Now..let's get back to Franco. I kind of thought his thing with Nina was sweet and that he truly had a heart. Then..he watched the video of Avery getting knocked over. He thought it was hilarious. Even Nina was uncomfortable with his reaction. She raised a good point when she reminded him that they had vowed to love and care for the baby....ripples....
Till next time......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope you all saw the anniversary episode! If not, find it and watch it! It is soap at it's finest. Elizabeth Korte weaved the past and the present seamlessly. We not only learned Luke's devastating secrets, but incorporated iconic characters from the first episode! General Hospital debuted April 1st, 1963. Fifty two years later it's still here and moving ahead. To have Steve Hardy, Jessie Brewer and Phil Brewer play a part in the whole reveal was amazing. I hope everyone loved it as much as I did.
Laura Wright took on the role of Lena Spencer. She played her with quiet dignity and fierce protectiveness. Later, after Luke became himself, he told Carly how much she looked like his mother. Its wasn't tongue in cheek. It was moving and powerful.
How far is Ric going to go before someone shuts him down? I hope its done by an angry Cassadine. Ric and Nik are both in love with Liz, but Nik only wants her to be happy. Ric treats her like the prize in the romance Olympics. Does he not consider what will happen to their coupledom when Liz learns the truth?
Back to Jakeson... I have a feeling that Jason will remember who he is, but won't speak up. Why? He will see that Sam has moved on with Patrick and he won't interfere with her happiness. Something will happen to change his mind, or someone else will figure it out, like Spinelli. It will come out just in time to keep Sonny from killing him.
There is much speculation that Duke is on his way out. If its true, they are setting it up now. He has decided on his own to kill Jordan, without Sonny's sanction. It can only end badly. This will involve Anna and Sloane. One of them will have to shoot Duke to save Jordan. That would be high drama, not to mention destroying Anna if its by her hand.
The intricacies of the writing weave stories together with an eye to the future and respecting the past.
Back to the muddy waters of Port Chuckles. Nik must be desperate or horny to hop into bed with Hayden, the whore of Beecher's Corners. She pretends to be married to Jake, propositions Ric and beds Nik. Keep her away from Sonny..
Speaking of Sonny, I know that he is a polarizing character and makes the wrong decision for the right reason but taking away his daughter is wrong. He truly loves his kids and would lay down his life for them. Michael doesn't see the big picture at all. I have been in the position of raising the children of a killer. Whether or not your intentions are to protect the children, if you deny them their family or birthright, you can destroy them. Its better to swallow your anger and bitterness to allow them to know where they came from. They are innocent. They can learn the truth when they are ready. Give Avery back to her father. Better that than explaining to her why Michael calls her AJ. Happy Viewing!

Hello! I hope everyone had a good week. I have been pondering what to talk about and finally decided that I should address what I believe is happening.
Morgan and the little cupcake Kiki have hatched a plot. It is simple and most probably effective. Replacing his allergy meds with "something stronger" could work very well. Don't think about Michael driving with Avery in the car, or driving impaired. Nobody is going to get hurt like that. Michael does drink. Right now, he is using it to blunt his feelings. He is not a social drinker. This is important because of his family history. He is at risk to become addicted. Morgan was correct about that, so using it to make Michael appear to be under the influence was quite inspired. Morgan is not the hothead he used to be when he was first brought back to town. Morgan's behavior with Kiki, Michael and Sonny is exactly how Michael is behaving now. Something is going to happen that will wake Michael up to his true motives. Too bad that someone will have to suffer for it. The collateral damage will cause huge ripples.
Luke is finally going to find the answers he has suppressed since his youth. Its going to be ugly. We saw on Friday that he clocked Valerie in the head, and now has Bobbie and Tracy at gunpoint. That's the easy part. On Wednesday, April 1st, we are going to witness a huge reveal. Questions will be answered and there will be tears. But FIRST, a flashback into how GH began. It will be fun if you can sit still knowing that Luke is about to have his childhood crime/trauma pushed in his face. Epic is too small a word for what will happen.
One has to wonder about the people in Jakeson's orbit. Once everyone knew that Helena was involved, bells should have been going off in a lot of heads! He has Jason's body type, he is drawn to the Quartermanes and he had brain surgery. Let's add the fact that he knew about the ring and took the Phoenix from Sam's place, he has Jason's skills! Patrick knew that he was alive at least for a while. Robin was acting oddly, so he should have at least considered the possibility that Jason survived. Of course, he does feel warm and squeaky for Sam, so that might color his judgement. I have a feeling that by the time Jason remembers who he is, Sam and Patrick will be deeply involved and playing house. How will Sam deal with that? Its obvious that she loves Patrick, but is it strong enough to keep her out of Jason's arms? For that matter, will Jason still feel the same way for Sam, given his feelings for Elizabeth? He isn't going to forget his life now, just adding his past to the mix.
Ric needs to step back and look at what he's doing to Liz. If the past has taught him anything, it's that lies, deceit and trickery will kill a relationship. He just can't grasp it, so he is doomed to fail.
Now would be a good time to let Nik be the hero. He doesn't need to unmask Jason to save Elizabeth's peace of mind.
Thinks are starting to pop! Enjoy the show.... If you have any comments, please post them to our Facebook page under the post that this column has been published. Thanks!


















OLD POSTS







WARNING: Contains Spoilers!

Hello Kids...Another week of surprises and secrets.. So, it really is Ewen who has Robin!  Did we not see this coming the night he rescued Liz and disappeared? Why would a doctor leave a woman in obvious physical distress unless he was scum or was hiding? Now he has his filthy paws on Patrick. He will be responsible for Patrick's mental health. What will happen? I see that Robin will have some gaps in her memory, thanks to the ECT. Anna is looking for her and she is not one to be trifled with. Robin will return, and she and Patrick will have a difficult reunion. Will she remember him? Stay tuned. You will not believe what happens..
As for Johnny and Todd.. Wow. That clash was awesome! You think Johnny will be redeemed? Not a chance folks. Not when you see how far he will go to look good. Todd is willing to go down in flames if it means taking Johnny with him. The baby switch was not so secret after all. Johnny has ears all over town. Now, since you know he knows, do you really think a nice guy would keep that secret? Carly is Jasons best friend. If Carly knows that Johnny knew about the switch..wowzers..She will take no prisoners. It will be like Sherman through Atlanta all over again. I realize that Johnny (Brandon Barash) has many fans who love him. He used to be the sad bad boy who was abused by his daddy. We now know that daddy was really grandpa and Johnny killed him in cold blood. Something wicked this ways comes...
Sam and Jason will have a long road back to each other. Sam will get her son back soon..BUT, she won't yet know that Jason is the daddy. That will be another bombshell. (Sidenote; even though Steve Burton bought a home in Tennessee, that doesn't mean he is leaving the show. Steve has company . Scott Reeves and his wife Melissa Reeves have their home in Tennessee as well. Its beautiful there and the lifestyle is better for families)...Back to my rant..Sam is drawn to John McBain. They have some mystical connection. He should just tell her he is really Caleb and she is Livvie and they are timeless. Jason will be lost after the divorce is filed. Not that he will drift..Elizabeth is in danger. He will do whatever he needs to do to protect her. They have been in each others orbit for so long, neither can really let go. Their timing has always been bad.
Luke and Tracy and Anna..Anna will not be too mad at Luke once she realizes that Robin is really alive. Will she let Robert know? Tracy will find herself busy on all fronts. With ELQ and the past as her mob ties return to haunt her...Will Michael be the saviour of ELQ?

July 22
The stories are gearing up for some big reveals in September. Those reveals will lead to more stories and mysteries as the 50th anniversary gets closer!
I have a confession to make. I lurk. yes..I lurk at many message boards to check the pulse of the fans. One thing that drives me crazy is the negativity. We fought so hard to save GH and so many posters do nothing but complain. The main complaint is the addition of some characters from OLTL. Why? Change keeps things lively and interesting. You have to admit that Todd is a great addition to the cast. His backstory is awesome and his future in Port Charles will be funny, tense and interesting. Starr and Michael are a cute couple. They found each other despite their painful first interaction. Joe Jr is going to provide some angst and drama that will be fresh. Look at the future. Joe Jr., Jerry Jacks,Todd Manning and Sonny Corinthos! Clash of the Titans! You may hate the mob stories, but they are here and you might as well find a bit of enjoyment that at least some of these guys wiill have a less than happy ending. Why do many fans complain that they hate change, yet complain when nothing ever changes? Now, the couples fan base must put up with my whining.. Jasam; Jason was honest with Sam. She wanted him to accept her baby with no reservations. He probably could have if she had just given him time to absorb everything. She was impatient and forced the issue by moving into the motel. What did that accomplish? It put her on a collision course with John McBain..a sexy, hot collision course. Jason turned to Elizabeth, who really wants Jason to be happy..Jason is the one who kissed her, not the other way around. Lante!! OK kids, lets cut to the chase..Lante will survive. They have normal early marriage growing pains. They have gone from independent individuals to a committed couple. They will have misunderstandings and arguments, but they will survive it. Forget Jolu..It is not happening, nor is Latrick. Patrick is spiralling downward, and Lulu is trying to be a friend. Maxie is not equipped for it and who else is there? Jarly: Johnnys secrets and lies will kill them as a couple. While Carly could understand if Johnny did something stupid, she hates to be lied to about anything! She will have a hissy fit at bare minimum. Spinelli and Maxie..She loves him, he loves her and they are both too wounded to admit it. It will take some time to get them where they need to be. Alexis will get some action too! First with Jerry Jacks and then with Shawn. Screw menopause!! Skate; Kate is not fully integrated with Connie yet. The baggage that group is carrying could never find enough skycaps. With the addition of Joe Jr., we have the makings of a huge diasater. Kate is Treys mother, Joe never told him the real truth. Trey is involved with Kristina who is Sonnys daughter. The truth will come out, then its bye bye Joe Jr.. McBam is a very real possibility. Why? Sam will get her baby back with Johns help. The paternity reveal will come later, after Sam and John get closer. The fan bases will have input into the outcome. Molly and TJ? Who really cares? Molly is mouthy and condescending. TJ is not a fully developed character. The future looks good, if you like exciting rides!!

Well kids, here we go again...
Heather is running all over town getting dirt on anyone and everyone. She has a bit of electronic help. Its funny..She has been in a mental hospital for years and still managed to pick up all the knowledge she needs to record the victims! Also, she has it all sent to a real time computer? I can't use all the features on my smartphone..and she can become as cunning as a CIA operative? Anyway..Kate will be confronting her past when she faces Joe Jr. Joe Jr. wants to take Sonny down in the worst way. He has help..his son Trey, who is also Kates son. He has a built in hatred for his bio mom who ran out on him. Kristina can't see past her own hormones to make any sense of whats happening. What kind of reality show is this anyway? Kristina talks into the camera like Barbara Walters on nicotine. She explains every encounter and scene. She comes off looking like a petulant and spoiled child. BORING! Michael and Starr have discovered there is life after death. This pairing will have lots of dramatic potential. Lets hope the writers mine it. Patrick starts to see Robin! Is she real or memorex? Patrick's meltdown will showcase his depth of grief over Robin. When she returns, he will also have
trouble coping! Now..the things that drove me nuts..Anna saw the dogs alerted on the shed where Luke is being held. A patrolman tells her that someone probably dragged the body through there. They do not investigate? What about looking for evidence for an eventual trial??? The writers dropped the ball there. Heather telling Sam that its Jason's fault her baby died should have made Sam slap the smug right off her face!
I love Todd! He is evil, nasty and criminal..but he is one of my favorite characters. When he walked in on Carly and Johnny with the toss away line "I just threw up in my mouth a little bit", I loved it! I digress..Todd needs to wise up and lie..He met Heather near the shed, he told her the baby needed help. She took the baby and reappeared with a live baby. He didn't know the difference. Now, she spilled a bit and is blackmailing him. He is just looking for a way to tell Tea and Sam the truth in the least painful way. Luke may die of thirst and starvation soon. He has been there for a while. Notice he doesn't have much of a beard? The Liz/Ewen "romance" will open some doors. Such as who Ewen really is, and his connections to other characters. Jason and Sam have a long road to travel, since she is drawn to John. John returns from
Llanview with news. He and Natalie are no longer a couple..Look out Jason! Sonny has his hands full with his personal life, leaving little time to run the business. Max and Milo must be doing it, as they have been MIA of late. Spinelli found his dignity and Maxie is on the outside looking in. She hates the view..Mac and Felicia are hiding in the attic. Is nobody curious? What is the status of Crimson? The summer will be filled with lots of revelations and twists that will change the dynamic of some couples...Relax Lante fans. They are ok. That is, until Dante gets suspicious of Johnny. That makes Lulu upset. Then she realizes Johnny is hiding something. She won't back away because he is trying to frame Luke. Lulu will be in a good position to get dirt. Carly will find that she is drawn to Todd after the downfall of Johnny begins!

June 23, 2012
Luke has stepped in it once again. Crazy Heather has managed to brazenly lovenap him. She would never call it kidnapping. Luke has a history of bailing when things get to emotional or sticky, and his three way with Anna and Tracy is sticky, to say the least. It will be a bit before anyone realizes he is really missing. In the interim,Tracy will point guilty fingers at Luke out of jealousy. She can't stand the idea of Luke and Anna!  In other Spencer news,Lulu and Johnny have a new partnership!  FYI Jolu shippers, it ain't happening, so don't get your feelings hurt. Johnny loves Carly and Lulu loves Dante. Lulu will eventually put the clues together and look for something to nail Johnny, guiltwise. Dante will help her just because he loves her and wants her to be safe! Oh..there is the little factoid that Heather knows the truth about Ethan and Robert..poor Anna...
Carly is basking in the glow of new love. Too bad it is going to blow up in her smug little face. Johnny is guilty, we all know that. Todd will try to warn Carly about the creep factor, albeit unsuccessfully. Todd also has other worries..like taking Sam's baby for Tea, watching his daughter with Captain Cool (Trey), watching his daughter with the mob prince (Michael) and the small matter of the blackmailing nutcase (Heather). OH! And Sam comes to him for a job. Strange bedfellows...
Jason and Liz have a deep friendship. Everyone can see it. Many are concerned. Ewen will get worried and jealous, Sam will warn Ewen..Steve will question her judgement, and Patrick will warn Ewen to beware the brooding enforcer. Of course, Patrick has his own baggage. Maxie moves in..leading to painful and emotional moments. Patrick has been burying his grief and it begins to come out in various ways. he will have a long journey back from the darkness. Just in time to witness the resurrection of his presumed dead wife!
Is it just me, or is Kristina a total 14 year old tantrum queen? Somebody should clue her in..If she is doing this to "revenge her life", she is blowing it big time. Her reaction to Starr was so insensitive and juvenile, I threw a shoe at the TV. She is trying to impress Trey..well? Guess what? What guy in his right mind would want to date a girl who would ruin your life if she got mad? A case of not thinking things through to a logical conclusion. How dare Sonny give her her dream of Yale? The bastard! To think he hated her so much he would do something that mean..and her reaction to Starr's explanation of her going after Sonny? Simply, so what if your kid is dead! My father sent me to Yale! Revenge is MINE!!
Kate is an emotional mess. Her breakdown has been painful and fascinating. Kelly Sullivan is a rare actress who seems to physically change when her character becomes someone else. It is amazing! As much as I respect Megan Ward, I doubt she could pull this off. Sonny has undergone a maturing as well. He made the decision to stand by the woman he loves instead of letting his ego triumph. This summer will be a revelation in terms of truths and the past and future. We know that Joe Jr. is coming to Port Chuckles. He has two sworn enemies..Sonny and John McBain. Fireworks on all fronts! Speaking of fireworks, John and Sam spend a lovely time watching fireworks together..they are both drawn to each other, and both have significant others. A recipe for romance and heartbreak. This summer will be epic! Stories will wrap faster, new people will inject drama and comedy, and we will see people we thought dead come back. Thats right..PEOPLE..more than one. Heather will finally get her just desserts as well. A baby will come home and a family will be shocked that a notable figure is still alive, even though the death was witnessed. Hmm..any ideas? I am sworn to secrecy..for now.

The show has been really good lately. Not everyone is happy because they feel that their couple/fave character is getting a bad deal. This is a soap. If everyone was happy and nothing ever happened, would you still watch? No..be honest. We need the shake up that happens on our screens.
Luke finally has a story that has some meat to it. A love triangle, a murder and Heather! Anna is back as commissioner and Mac will get a story. heather is bat guano crazy. She has a hand in all the nasty goings on. She also has a partner in crime..stay tuned! Kristina is proving that she stopped maturing at 14, Michael is getting some hormones and Johnny shows us what happens when crazy shows itself. The baby switch is classic soap, and while trite and overdone,still has promise. When it ends, the damage to many will last for years. Todd is a great addition to GH. he plays well off of many characters. I LOVE John and Sam together. Jason has been a real horses ass since the rape. Its been all about him.. Too bad, suck it up and show some caring for the real victim. Carly is deluded by Johnny. But, she always has has blinders for bad boys. Maxie is so self involved, I hope Spinelli finds someone who truly appreciates him. Lulu and Dante are growing past the honeymoon stage. Fear not..its groing pains. They will be fine. Kate/Connie is a good story and has shown Sonny in a better light. Things are looking up. I like the new direction the show is taking. Remember, its a soap..not a reality show. Relax and enjoy the ride.
