BORN AGAIN TO RULE THE MOB:
|Michael Corinthos III|
@duelly87 it's great watching Chad Duell in the Michael Corleone role on General Hospital good job Chad
Oh from the mouths of actors...! Well, there it is. All in one tweet. We are all watching a soapy-Godfather knock-off and there's nothing we can do about it. I suppose if we are to continue with this viewership, the kool-aid line forms to the right.
Settle in and let me tell you a tale of mob-dynasty and a tortured fanbase of shippers-- Oh how they must be suffering!!
You know I'm going to suggest Chinese Food today. Heh.
Well, since Jake and Liz set their wedding date to November 6th, we all know what that means: FIVE weeks until the ultimate reveal. FIVE. I get the whole "Sweeps" thing but good grief. Not only that, this Jason thing has taken on a life of it's own in that Liz is doing major major damage in the process of keeping the truth from him. We'll get five weeks for the bloodbath that is JaSam and Lisaon to simmer. Twitter is going to go all GoT. Rumors abound about the 'aftermath' everything from "Jake will know he's Jason but not tell anyone" to "Liz and Ric end up together when Jason tries to gain custody of little Jake"! I haven't even looked for answers to upcoming events yet because I'm not that sure it's plotted out to a "T". This will be so interesting. The writers will be totally switched by then. And who knows what's coming. Get ready for anything!
Meanwhile, Sam's all mopey and depressed (as per usual) over the whole Patrick proposal. She can't even go through old Jason boxes without clutching the sacred figurines. She cries and closes it, unable to look into the depths of agony. Sam does rally long enough to make the love to Patrick. Then she goes and sits at Oodles of Noodles thinking about her past love. In walks...Jake. Jake, who's fresh from his own zex with Liz and wedding date being set! Oh the feels.
Cue Liason rage. This is going to get ugly. Way ugly. I'm here to watch that fall out! I have no stake in this game so sitting back and watching on the fence will be mighty entertaining.
I did love when Sonny insisted that Jake was Jason. Very well done and believable. Liz was about ready to throw-up though. I'm so waiting for Carly to get "that vibe" too because she really should. Later, when Sonny talked to Patrick about his feelings he knew it wasn't due to JUST morphine. They are soul-connected after all!
Ava and Carly. Pretty glorious in their fierce Mama-love. Only, hey..Carly you're not Avery's mom. And if anyone knows what a mama can do to have/protect her own it's Carly. Deep down she has to admire Ava because if Ava didn't fight for Avery, well she'd be a real POS. Baby Avery stole the show 2x this week: Once by saying "Mama" on cue and then reaching for Maurice to give him a kiss. Oh she's worth her weight in gold. (I know they are twins, so that's double the weight)! Carly and Sonny will be married bedside and Ava will keep pushing to get Avery while 'running' the Jerome Empire.
Morgan. Oh Morgan. I don't even know why/what they are trying to do here. We get the whole Godfather connection (see above). No one is even hiding it anymore. Morgan is so acting like he's coming down from straight-up addiction it's not even funny. But hey, let's keep saying he's bi-polar. :throwsuphands: Michael is now dressing like he's already in the mob with the black shirt and jacket. LMAO. I really hate the "literal" things thrown in our faces. Gone are the prep clothes--HE'S CHANGED! He even says he's Michael Corinthos III at the Five Families Meeting.
I wanna go to the meeting...
No you can't...
But I wanna go...
No, you are out of control
I AM NOT OUT OF CONTROL! I'M GOING!
Wah..wha.. I'm telling MOM! and MILO! Big Meanie.
Oh yes, the FIVE FAMILIES meeting. Pass the pasta. I just. I ...just... Well, I'm shaking my head. You can't see it but I'm shaking it. HARD.
Julian and Alexis. Why does she suddenly believe him now? Everything points to him being the shooter--does she just 'trust' him all of a sudden? Guess so. For once she's right though and goes to the new DA to talk it out. She's super psyched that he's a 'clean' DA for once. AHAHA. Nope. He meets with Ava on the docks and tells her to go to the family meeting to say Julian was the culprit. If she does say that ..she's sealed her brother's death warrant. If she doesn't it's back to jail. Will Julian get thrown into the pokey AGAIN? *sigh* can hardly wait.
Jason had no "big" reveal this week btw--he got a glimpse of Sam going to the motorcycle and a bit of the vows. Nothing huge. I still sit and think if this really happened Jason would have the same teeth/eyes--why does no one realize? Then I remember oh yea.."Soap" and well, whatever. Still pretty cheesy in this day in age to try to pull it off.
Not a heck of a lot actually happened as far as movement goes. I love how Kristina totally just evaporated. POOF! Molly was "upstairs with a headache" when Ric came over and Krissy apparently just went back to college. That was that! I guess thanks for the 2.2 seconds? Maxie and Dillon had a talk about Daddies. She's good in any scene. He's still bland to me. I get no appeal from him at all. He's a decent actor--just..blah. And someone get Tracy out of that damn living room! LOL. geesh!!
By the way, Sonny was shot 11 days ago, not even counting weekends. 11. And maybe 3 have passed soap time. So..there you go.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Carly and Ava. The dialog was great: "I didn't raise him". LOL. Both Maura and Laura were wonderful. Baby Avery did her part by looking adorbs no matter who was holding her!
PROPS OF THE WEEK; Oh gotta give it up for the phoenix and dragon. They've been around awhile.
FACE OF THE WEEK: She loves her some Dimples!
One more shot of the knick-knacks. See ya next week. Wonder if Sonny will be in GH another 5 days or what.
