Flaming Mess



Nell tells Carly her last name: Benson. Carly says: OMG you're Frank Benson's daughter.  Nell says that her dad loved Carly but she never loved him back. Carly said that Frank was a dead-beat who abandoned her adoptive mother and she and left them in debt. Nell says that Frank wrote to Carly for money. Carly says "yes I got those and threw them away". Nell says, yes until you needed a kidney then you demanded one from him!!
This makes no sense AT ALL.  

Anyway, Nell said Carly doesn't care about anyone but herself. She said she slept with Sonny because Carly slept with Bobbie's husband.  Carly smacks her. She and Sonny leave. Carly still hates Sonny for sleeping with Nell. (Nell didn't tell her she didn't really sleep with him). Michael is mad too and leaves. 


BY THE WAY: John Durant was Carly's biological father-so Frank wasn't. Ergo, how did the kidney just "match"??  He was played by Corbin Bernsen.  The only way this could have made a little sense is if Nell was HIS daughter, and then the DNA of the kidney matched and Jax found her. It would also make sense on the revenge part of Sonny because John died during the whole Sonny/Manny story. As it stands now this story makes NO sense. NONE. 

Robin tells Anna about Sam being in a coma.  Anna asks about Robin's HIV status and having a baby. She says she's on a protocol.  Later, Jordan comes by and tells Anna that Olivia may be alive. 

Julian is in the trunk of Olivia's car. Griffin walks by: Can I help you with something??  She says "you look familiar" ...they talk and she figures out he's Duke's son. She gets mad at Jules for not telling her.  Olivia then stands in the parking garage talking to Julian in the trunk for eons. Like she'd do that. Anyone could walk in!! UGH!! 

Alexis asks if she can go to the bank and get into the safety deposit box.  Jordan is going to check. 
Monica calls Alexis and says their granddaughter is ok--but Sam isn't. Alexis goes to GH. She goes to see Sam. Jason is sad that Sam is in a coma. Sad, sad.  Alexis talks to Sam. Then Jason is back at her bedside. Yabbing away. I really hate bedside scenes like this. SO overdone. I've seen probably 800 over the years. I'm sure JaSam fans love it though. I didn't even listen to what he was saying.  Alexis brings in the baby and Jason sets her on Sam's stomach and her eyes open.  She talks-- and she and Jason get all teary eyed over Scout. (Sam calls her Scout so I'm guessing they'll keep the name? ) 

Ok..welp Sunday Surgery is going to be nutty because I'm so so mad at the Nell story, I can't tell you!!

Why, oh why, would they name that baby Scout? That's almost as bad as when, on All My Children, Kendall named her little boy Spike.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about some Harper Lee, but SCOUT? Really? Maybe they should just go all out and name her Jean Louise.

AntJoan said...

I think that the name Scout is kinda cute . . . I didn't finish watching yet, but have to agree with Karen, unless I hear more today that says otherwise, Carly asked Frank Benson for a kidney? When they have NO blood relation? What? . ..

witch said...

it would make more sense if jax was nelle's father.

GHfan said...

Totally agree Karen. Jason is talking too much too. It's nice to see Billy emote, he's really not 'stone cold' and tptb refuse to have him evolve into a combo of JQ/JM.

I missed much of the mid-80's to mid '90's. Bottom line is these writers don't know GHs history. Thank God FH, GF, JE & RH have chemistry with everyone they work with. They carry this show and why so many continue to watch.

Arwen Tedhams said...

Karen thank you so much for eloquently expressing how I felt today about the Nell storyline.

SHODDY,SHODDY, LAZY, LAME WRITING! Seriously? Frank Benson just happened to have a kid that is no relation to Carly, never mind that she's the spitting image of Patricia, and she is a kidney match. I know soaps are about suspending belief but oh brother...I really hope there is more to this story. Such a huge letdown! I was sitting there saying to myself, why am I still watching? This was worse than the Luke story. It's almost like they want to kill GH with terrible writing.

The bedside drama...I FF. It went on and on...I think I have misguided loyalty to this show. I don't know why I continue to watch. Just terrible. Please prove me wrong GH. Or give me a job. You need better writers.

I was expecting Neil was going to be Carly's daughter she gave up and only told Jax about. Being her adopted dad's kid is crazy because she is not blood related to Carly so why even brother to look for her. I think the writers are making this stuff up as they go along with no plan on how or where stories are going to end. Didn't Valentine call some ministry women sometime or was that Nicholas or did I dream that scene months ago.

AMC GH said...

Sam opens her eyes after being in a coma and on a ventilator – the next scene she is perfectly fine… Not even wearing oxygen!! That is some back from near death come back! So poorly written. She wasn't even asking questions, was strong enough to hold the baby, even her hair looked good. I may be mistaken but I'm not sure that was even an IV In her hand. For a show about hospitals this one doesn't have a clue

** While it definitely wouldn't be my first choice. But it's a HUGE improvement over Rocco.
or it could be FAR worse, They could do like what Amber Tamylin just did:

** Having gone through what Sam did (minus the giving birth) on;y it was for over a month, so seeing that sort of crap pisses me off

kdmask said...

K... Amber was totally trolling the celeb name thing. That was a joke

Michelle Latta said...

I know! What a name!

sonya said...

Nelle's home:

Nelle: Why don't you start asking me about my real last name. It's not Hays. It's Benson.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Hmmm Nelle Benson... Doesn't fit right.. Nelle Hays fits right. :)Oh geez Nelle!!! Your father is a lying liar that lies!!!!!

The hospital:

Sam's room: Sam is in a coma!!!! Don't worry she is a superhero she will come out of this! Oh baby superhero Trim can save her mother!!!! And she did!!!!! Little superhero family! Damn that baby looks like a boy. :)

Anna's room: Awwww love how worried Robin is.. Oh oh! Anna brings up Leora!!!!!!! :'( Whenever someone talks about Leora on AMC I cried. When Anna brought her up yesterday, I cried. Even talking about her now I have tears... I watched Leora die and it was so hurtful!!!! :'( Okay no more talking about her. :(

Parking garage:

Julian and Olivia Jerome: Olivia wins the line of the day.

Olivia: You tried to put me in the ground. And so far the only thing I've done to you is put you in the trunk.

ROFL! And wow Julian! You are gagged, but I can still hear you clearly!!!!! Magical!

Olivia and Griffy: Oh oh! Is she gonna kidnap Griffy now that she knows that Griffy is Duke's son? How come she didn't ask Julian who the mother is?! Does she think Anna is the mother?!

Olivia and Robin: RA RO!

Sam has a GED. Jason is heavily brain damaged. Of course they will give a dumbass name to their brat.

Michelle Latta said...

I never watched AMC but just being an ABC soap watcher (GH OLTL and PC) I knew Finola was on there at one time and knew about a daughter but was she a baby or older?
Baby Trim aka Scout is so cute!

No little Leora was just a baby of 3 months old when she died on the operating table. :( Here is the video of when she died.

:'( David Hayward is the father. :'( David and Anna were married at this time. This was in 5-30-03.. And watching it still hurts and still makes me cry. :(

Rest of it.

** That's what I figured it was, but thanks for the confirmation Karen. Since I avoid social media (except for when someone else mentions it) I wasn't totally positive. In any case, it still fit the topic. :)

** What a surprise and shock! NOT!! This was EXACTLY what we thought it was going to be once Nelle freaked out over Frank Benson's picture. It still COULD have worked, but the "reasoning" she gave on Friday, pretty much obliterated any chance of that happening. This crap just gets more and more frustrating.

The hospital:

Sam's room: Sam is in a coma!!!! Don't worry she is a superhero she will come out of this! Oh baby superhero Trim can save her mother!!!! And she did!!!!! Little superhero family! Damn that baby looks like a boy. :)

** Complete with the superhero power to give birth through her closed pants!

Anna's room: Awwww love how worried Robin is.. Oh oh! Anna brings up Leora!!!!!!! :'( Whenever someone talks about Leora on AMC I cried. When Anna brought her up yesterday, I cried. Even talking about her now I have tears... I watched Leora die and it was so hurtful!!!! :'( Okay no more talking about her. :(

** It was heartwrenching to watch at the time. But, I am glad she was brought up, though. Because that means they aren't ignoring that part of Anna's history, even though it didn't occur on GH. I'm also hoping that they brought it up as a way of maybe foreshadowing David Hayward coming to PC, since VI left DAYS. I know we don't need any more characters on the canvas. But, outside of Robert and Duke, David is the ONLY other person that Anna has had that much chem with.

Olivia and Griffy: Oh oh! Is she gonna kidnap Griffy now that she knows that Griffy is Duke's son? How come she didn't ask Julian who the mother is?! Does she think Anna is the mother?!

** You're trying to make logical sense of what Olivia says or does. You should've known at least decades ago, that this is something that just can't be done!
