Great show today. Becky was amazing and her recourse was so well written and true to character. Love seeing Max and Milo - hope they stay awhile. Ummm, McBam, only getting hotter. NuKristina needs to watch Becky to see how to really act distressed. Wish JJr. would off her and put us out of our misery. Starting to really feel bad for Trey. Also love seeing our Maxie back in the swing of things. Good stuff today-actually watched live.

If anybody hasn't watched the show today. YOU GOT TO!!! :)

Joe Jr Jr Jr: He is looking all over for Kristina!!!!! Hurry and find her! Be the hero! :)

Sonny's warehouse: Joe Jr kidnaps Kristina and wants to kill her, so that Trey gets everything when she dies! Oh Joe Jr! Tracy is not going to be very happy to hear about what you are doing!!!! Hey has the actor lost some weight? :) He looks thinner.

The wedding: Ellie talking to Maxie. Ellie is so sweet! Maxie says to herself, I can't hate her she is too nice! ROFL! Ellie likes comics too! Spinny talks about something jumping the shark ROFL! The wedding begins, and there are a lot of objections! ROFL! First from Olivia, and then Milo, and then "Kate" Who says she can't marry him, because she is married to him! And she points to JOHNNY!!!!!!! I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!!!!! I KNEW SHE MARRIED HIM HAHAHAHAHA! GREAT SOAPY STUFF! :)

Jason's home: Liz spills the truth on Jason about baby cheeto!!!! Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :0 Poor Liz is all messed up since Jake died. She really needs to go to therapy! Liz leaves, and Jason calls his new love McBain to tell him!!!!

Alexis's home: Sam and McBain were going to have sex, but she stopped it. Oh rats!!! She doesn't think it's the right time because she is getting a divorce, and McBain just got a letter from Natalie yesterday saying she met someone new!!! (YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!) Mcbain leaves, and Liz shows up to tell Sam the truth!

Deb K said...

Rebecca Herbst was brilliant today.
Excellent performance. IMO she stole the show.


FriscoDances said...

Amazing show today. It felt like about a month's worth of good dialogue all in one day. I really hate it when they drag storylines out forever and today things happened fast and I loved it!

Becky Herbst blew it out of the park today! I was hanging on to her every word. I know Ron got a lot of flack lately for having her switch the DNA results, but coming clean this fast and explaining what she did and why was so true to her character. Great writing! Oh it is so good to say that again!

Cosmoetica said...

Karen: Kristina and all Sonny's kid's have massive trust funds, as well as property in their names- a practice that Sonny started once he started having kids all over. When Kristina was revealed as his he vowed to take care of her and he did. Plus, she's also an heir to the Cassadines.

But, c'mon, this bashing of the nuKrisrtina is ridiculous. Exactly HOW would the prior Kristina have been better at being terrified and BSing Joe Jr.?

Cosmoetica said...

Nice that Liz brought up Sam's misdeeds.

CareyN said...

I think NuKristina has been doing really well lately. I think she was really natural with KeMo during the bachelorette party. And did a good job with the emotional roller coaster with Trey in yesterday's show. I've always liked the character...so I'm glad that the actress is improving. Oh and Trey is also growing on me. Especially the scene he had with the ConKate reveal! I hope he ends up being a good guy, because he seems like he wants to be.

Haven't seen today yet...but really looking forward to it!

Cosmoetica, I was glad Liz brought up one of Sam's misdeeds , failing to mention Sam hiring gunmen to threaten Liz and her children in the park to break Liz and jason up. I only saw that last liason scene and Rebecca Herbst was fantastic while Steve Burton stood there like the Borg saying , " What do you want me to say?" Liz is flattened just like Jake. I think she will be written off the show. In any case, I will read this blog because I enjoy it but I won't rejoin the show until November in the hopes that Anna, Duke lavery, Edwards memorial will take over the show.I can't stand to watch the jasam show and I've done this in the past where I stopped watching on tv and just worked out for 1 hr. Good for my wasteline :). Rumors are that there will be another influx of OLTL characters taking over ELQ. Sad that Ned Quartermaine couldn't come back and run it with Jax.

Tammy Wynette said...

NotKristina SUCKS. Keep on telling it like it is, Karen.

Thanks!

Mrs. D said...

I feel that they are going to write Liz off the show too. It makes me sad because I just adore the character and actress.

Cosmoetica said...

CareyN:

I think you, OldSchoolGH Fan, and I are prob the 3 most dedicated watchers of the show. I can't recall a post where any of us slagged on actors or characters saying we were not gonna watch for this or that silly reason.

And yes, the new Kristina has gotten better. As I've posted a few times, it took Lex A about 3 months to become passable as Kristina. The new one is hitting her groove, and she and Trey are good together. Lexi and Trey wd be ridiculous.

And, if one is gonna slag on a Davis girl, Kelly M is the worst actress. It's a decade on, and in recent scenes where she's pissed she looks constipated still. It's like KM went to the Steve Burton method school of constipation acting. When pissed, look like you're passing a large, dry turd.

To all the neKrissy haters: other than 'she sucks' reasoning, explain why- give a scene, an expression. How would Lexi have been better at being terrified than the new girl? Other than doing that all you're doing is the old ONLY ONE ACTOR CAN PLAY THAT PART BS!

LOVE2: I think Becky's going nowhere. The new cop coming on is slated to be her next bedwarmer, and likely JJ returns for a triangle.

Cosmoetica said...

Look at all the shit Jen Lilley got when KS got sick. When KS got back, the same fans realized Jen L kicked KS's ass as Maxi and bitched over the return.

In a year, most will see Lyndsey Morgan as KS and if a super actress replaced her they'd bitch that she was a fake.

My point is that Kelly M is a bad actress, and has always been. Becky Herbst pwns her as an actress. Kelly is GREAT eye candy (as are all ex-Playmates) so I don't mind her constipation school acting, and, with McBam we might actually get HOT love scenes for the first time in years on GH, but that's the best KM can do.

The show just gets better and better. I think Duke's return is great, and look at all the whining the last few years over bad newbies- from Ian Devlin to Maggie Worth. In essence, McBain and Todd are GH newbies who bring new viewers AND are terrific characters.

I just hope McBain doesn't pal around w Jason and Sonny too much and he and Anna clean town, and I hope Todd- well, he can do anything and hold attention. He's the best actor on soaps today, if not all time. Period.

love2chat402000 said...

There are a few surprises coming as far as who will be off the show by the New year. Becky may be given a chance at love but she is considered a supporting actress. She will be written into a corner and off. She won't be the first one to go. Rumors are that it will be LW ( even though they make it look like she is going to be with todd ) and Maurice Bernard riding off into sunset with Brenda.

Tammy Wynette said...

Lexi and Trey would be ridiculous?

WHATEVER.

Cosmoetica said...

So, Tammy, I asked:

To all the neKrissy haters: other than 'she sucks' reasoning, explain why- give a scene, an expression. How would Lexi have been better at being terrified than the new girl? Other than doing that all you're doing is the old ONLY ONE ACTOR CAN PLAY THAT PART BS!

You wrote:

WHATEVER.

I take it, then, that you have NO REASON to support your bias against the newer actress, save, you don't like her. Why?

Brender said...

Becky, Becky! You made me cry. I watched again and you made me cry again. What great acting!! The scenario seems plausible. She is still distraught about Jake and still cannot forgive Sam for what she did. In her own head, Liz thinks that if Sam had not done what she did to Jake, things wouuld have turned out differently and Jake probably would still be alive today. I can see many mothers that lost kids relating to that. I wish she would have told Jason that she was mad at him for forgiving Sam.
DO you think the fan backlash will be strong again if they fire Becky? I know I will be one to call and text and write and email in her behalf....unless she wants to leave the show.
What I do hope is that it was not Jason and Liz's last scene together. Definitely not closure on their part!
I have not watched the rest of the show yet, but will do so this evening.
I cannot wait til Liz tells Sam everything. We'll see what Sam says now.

Cosmo...no one here needs to explain their opinions to you, after all opinions are like assholes - we all have one.

==================

Cliche aside, the point is there's no call to SHOW that hole to anyone, either, and if you can't back up an opinion there's no real need to state it.

Where have you heard these "rumors"? Please share with the rest of us -- otherwise how do we know you are not just making this stuff up?

MatchboxGinny said...

Becky was absolutely amazing, flawless.

Lindsey Morgan (NuKristina) is a terrible actress and needs to be recast. I was actually embarrassed for her yesterday. Her performance was atrocious. She needs some serious acting lessons or a new profession.

Connie/Johnny married? Soooo ridiculous.

================

Again, Ginny- why? Did she not scream right? There needs to be more than just I hate her. How was she diff from what Lexi A. would have done?

Tammy Wynette said...

Thank you Matchbox Ginny!

Cosmo -- what she said! LMAO!

Tammy Wynette said...

Lexi Ainsworth would have been believable in these scenes.

Lindsey Morgan looked like she was in PHYSICAL pain just trying to create the tears in her eyes.

gmjl said...

Actually, I thought she looked constipated in her scenes...she really is a horrible actress.

Deb K said...

Good post Cosmo!

Stephanie said...

First of all... Jen Lilly DID NOT kick Kirstens ass as Maxie. Although I liked JL, Kirsten IS Maxie and plays her better.

NuKristina is growing on me.. I think she does ok and I don't think that Lexie could have done any better, I think they pretty much act the same...

I loved how the intergrated Jake with what Elizabeth did, it shows the grief process and that even though it gets easier, the pain never ever goes away.

AntJoan said...

OK, I was hoping that Liz would explain that part of why she did what she did was because of what Sam did to her, so I was really happy that she said it.

Also, I didn't understand what Trey will inherit, but someone here explained that. Oh, Joe, please kill NuK and put us out of our misery, ITA LSV422.

When I saw Flea the other day, she looked GREAT, like she had some work done--she looked younger than her daughter!! Maybe that's why she was missing from the show for a while??

AntJoan said...

Cosmo, excuse me, but I think that I am the most dedicated fan, haven't missed a show since about 1994, I watch every day (OK I DVR, but then I ALWAYS watch after work).

I think that KM is a good actress, I never have had a problem w/her, although I know that lots of you don't like her.

The other night, I had a dream that I married Sonny!! It was very realistic (alas, I didn't get to the wedding night, but he was affectionate)!! I am so in love w/Sonny, but in my dream, he was married to me as well as to many other women, but I wasn't jealous, as I know that so many women love him, and there is only so much of him to go around!!

CareyN said...

AntJoan, That is the greatest dream ever! But please tell me the wedding was fine; Marrying Sonny is dangerous! Hope you didn't knife the cake to death, get shot, or have a car bomb explode? Were there real guests? Was all the food served on tiny trays? :D

renegade_killerbee said...

Haven't watched yet. I just found out that "General Hospital" is on my OnDemand schedule.

THE BEST GENERAL HOSPITAL EPISODE WOULD BE ONE WHERE JASUS/STEROID BOY/THE ROIDED GUTTER/THE FAT ONE/AKA HOMOPHOBIC STEVE BURTON was not on the show.

Has he left the building YET???

Cosmoetica said...

So, Tammy and Ginny: no real reasons for the NuKrissy hate. At least you're honest about it.

AntJoan: AS for Kelly M.- seriously. Look at both her and Burton's faces in their scenes together. It could be an Olympic event: synchronized loaf pinching. It's excruciating to watch them, and for a decade they've been the most pushed and reviled 'Supercouple' in soap history. Kelly actually has chemistry w McBain. Lesson? Good looks do no = chemistry. And I've watched since '80, and Kelly M. is definitely in the Bottom 10 of GH actresses- maybe not Bottom 5, but of the BIG NAME actresses- name one worse, who was ever a first line contract player? Seriously.

Kirsten Storms is incapable of playing vulnerability and likability. The new Ellie actress has FAR more chemistry w Spinelli. So did Lilley. The Spinelli-Maxi pairing was so forced because KS and BA have almost as chemistry-free a relationship as Monaco-Burton.
