Ingo is back in March as idea how long

Dom Z is back for a short stint...not sure when
Kirsten Alderson (ex Starr; Kiki) is back for "Something fun" ..must be Nurses' Ball? 

TODAY'S SHOW:  WHICH was actually good! 

IF YOU do nothing else, watch the first few minutes. LOL!! Ryan's fantasy of gutting CarSon with Ava there. It's AWESOME! Both Carly and Sonny are DUCT TAPPED IN THE MOUTH! Yeaaaaaaaassssssss!! Too bad it was just a day dream.
Ava walks into his office (this really happened).. and they have zex on the desk. Laura walks in after leaving Lulu's room. Ryan rubs the fact that they had sex in Laura's face and is nasty to her. She says he's "not himself"..he says "you're right"!  Then he says "We need to talk about the pre-nup"! Which there isn't one, Kevin did that as a ruse. 
Laura figures out something is up.
Ava then comes in and says "It seems weird Laura would want a prenup"..
Ryan's lightbulb goes off..he calls Ferncliff and is going to go see Kevin. 

Carly: I'm pregnant
Sonny: you sure? 
Carly: yeah, I took a test, it's upstairs
Sonny: I dont' wanna insult you but that's not possible 

He basically said "You OLD, GIRL"! 

Carly says she's not on the pill anymore and thought she stopped her period because of her age. Sonny says "Well, could it be that"? She said, no she took two tests. He wonders what she's going to "do about it".

Sonny points out she almost had a stroke when she had Joss. She said advances in medicine have happened. He gets all upset at the thought of her dying. 
She got pregnant on NYE in NYC...she's about 6 weeks along. 
They talk mob..and the fact the baby will remind them of MORGAN (who else??!!) Carly wants the baby. Sonny says they'll go to the doctor. 

Dr. O is singing at Floating Rib. Sasha and Griffin are there. Dr, O says to Sasha that she bets she's dying to know "their family history".. RIGHT? 
Later, Maxie wants to take her for a mani-pedi (she's going to get DNA sample)

Jordan has a plan to prove Franco isn't the killer but it "has risk" --she's going to make the real killer overconfident by making them think Franco is going down.  She goes to talk to Franco in the jail. Gives him a folder. It's Kiki's murder photo. Franco throws it. She says only a person with no soul could do that. "but you have a soul...don't you". She tells him she knows he didn't attack Lulu or kill Kiki. She gives him a plan to catch the real killer-but we don't hear it. 

END: Laura follows Kevin

Love in Jail

Not Molly and TJ
Not Jordan and Curtis
Not anyone ELSE ON CANVAS...BUT CARSON!! And I'm just saying that SORRY-- ughhhh we do not need this ish. Nope. All I can think of is Laura Wright is pregnant in real life-- because WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS??? I will have a LOT to say about this later. This better be a menopause story.
YEP MENOPAUSE, that's what I'm going with...because I can't fathom why they'd have a baby story now. 



CarSon in bed. Maybe this is when he plants the seed? Ewwww ..Oh no, Carly's acting like she has something to tell him. They go to the Metro for dinner. Sonny has plane tickets. She's hesitates. When they are back home, she tells him shes' pregnant. He just looks at her @@

Olivia and Ned going to the Metro overnight.

JaSam make out in Jason's place. Then Spinelli comes over. With "Dire News" about SHank. He thinks he murdered someone. 

Sam goes to the Valentine's party to try to get info out of SHank. He massages her head and says mumbo jumbo about the "here and now". She leaves. 

Kristina tells him seeing him with Sam bothers her and she's not "Enlightened" enough. He tells her she has to take more classes. Krissy doesn't have the money-- and Shank says "Well, if you needed an operation, she'd get the money". 

JAIL HOUSE WEDDING!!!!! On the anniversary of Liz' rape day!! I mean, seriously?  I've been waiting for MONTHS for this and it's on this day IN THE JAIL?  Drew is going to marry them. They get married.  No kids. No family-- nope. 

That Dr. guy that is blind thinks Anna is Alex. Then he realizes she's really Anna. I guess they are going to fly him to Port Charles to get his viral thing straightened out. 

Valerie is on.. which I don't even CARE because Brytni is leaving. Whatever. Kristina tries to push the cult on her. Valerie leaves. 

NEWS: INGO'S BACK AS JAX. Not sure when. 

Wednesday, February 13, 2019


That's my head-- TRAGIC. Migraine! on top of congestion. That and a meeting are keeping me from YOU today!! 

So, have at it. 


Tuesday, February 12, 2019


Laura visits Franco in Jail. She doesn't believe him. She thinks he's guilty. Franco tries to convince her otherwise. 
He says at the end "Dr. Collins isn't the man I know him to be"... Laura's face is thinking.. hmmmmm

Drew thinks Franco is innocent. He tells Jordan that Franco didn't even kill the guy (Harvey) that tried to strangle him during the earthquake. He's changed. 

Cameron is all beat up because kids at school found out Franco got arrested. He thinks he's guilty. Best part of the show:
Jake, Aiden and Cam all sit down and Liz talks to them about Franco. Aiden asks questions: Did he put that lady in the barrell? Gram said he did it, is she a liar?? 
Drew comes over to lend support. He talks about Franco's tumor. Yada yada

Nina's gonna marry Val. AGAIN.  Dr. O comes around to meet Sasha and have lunch with she and Nina. Valentin isn't happy.  

Peter's having lunch with Maxie. :eyeroll: She's watching the table with Nina/Dr. O by her make up mirror. 

Spencer visits Sonny, who seems to know that he tampered with the election. Spencer said he's not telling Laura because of Lulu and what Dr. Collins did to her but Sonny said he should. 

Jordan and Curtis talk about Franco...and how many questions there are surrounding him.  They think the licenses were planted 

END: Liz spies the wedding invitation. I bet they'll get married. ON VALENTINE'S DAY which will gut many a Liz fan. 
You know why.

The Brick

Kiki's memorial brick...and we already know Griffin doesn't get killed so... whatever. Ava comes up on the roof. She wants Kevin to say Franco couldn't have killed Kiki.  Ryan says he loves Ava. 

Carly and Sam talk about Danny playing at the Q house.  He made her a Valentine. They continue talking. About Monica.. about.. Jason... about well, didn't pay attention. 

Jason is with Harmony in Beecher's Corners. He asks about Shank. Not much happens. She looks like an Housewife from BRAVO. 

Drew is talking to SHank. SO Boring I'm not even kidding you. 

Griffin is at his apartment, working out. All shirtless and then Shasha comes in. They are all sad over Kiki. 

Alexis is going to see Dr. Neil. They are fun together so far. Alexis traces her issues to her father. 

Spencer is on tomorrow. 

There is not one reason to watch today's show.

Sunday Surgery: Ryan-Nosis

Now, pretend you're a chicken! 

My Diagnosis for Ryan-nosis is Hypnosis. 

I really didn't want to write the blog this week after the horrible editing of the show then the news that Brytni is going to YR. But here I am. Soak it in, not sure when you'll be getting another. I might need a bit of a rest.

Letting Talent Go. --Bytni Sarpy Exits GH

Valerie is a Spencer and is Chases' partner on the PCPD
Valerie should be helping to catch her cousin's attacker
Valerie is figuring out her feelings for Kristina
Valerie is going to YR

I think GH really wants to drive me from the show. They've done it to almost everyone else, why not me? Latest thing is that Brytni Sarpy who plays Valerie has gone over to YR  Valerie. THE VALERIE AND KRISTINA story I've been waiting for. 

The writers were writing it.... they even made Val Chase's partner, remember? She could have featured heavily in the Cult story and figuring out her feelings for Kristina. Then she disappeared. I wondered why.  Was it the writers fault? 

You can put that ish squarely on management. Same management that let Jason Thompson go. Same management that for some reason, didn't green light stories for Dante and DZ stepped away.  Content to have Tequan Richmond (former TJ) exit the show rather than write for him or put him on contract. He was a stellar TJ-- he and Molly should be front and center for the demographic. And yet. And yet. 

Instead of putting a few people on a short-term contract or regular contract they let the 'recurring' status take it's roulette shots.  In the meantime, we'll get how many other characters that are featured for awhile, then fade again into the background? Even if you LIKE a newbie, chances are they'll be recurring so don't get attached. Don't get invested. 

Yeah, I'm bitter.  I really wanted this pairing since their natural chemistry shown through at that Nurses Ball commercial. You can't manufacture that sort of thing, you cultivate it.  Don't talk to me about recasts either. These two were sparkly because of who they were. Plus, even if they recast, why bother getting all excited when they'll just leave again? 

So, happy Saturday in the Land of Soaps.  I'm thrilled Brytni found a place at YR and wish her all the best.

Bar Fly

PCPD. Liz " I want to see my fiance... My Fiance.." Who watches Seinfelf? LOL !! 
Jordan says that Franco has "no alibis for any of the murders" which we know is FALSE-- he has alibis for at least  3 of them, we saw it. His shoes also match the shoe print? Huh? Well, whatever. Scotty wants Franco to have an MRI because of his past Tumoah history. 

Griffin and Ryan.. They are waiting to give blood. and Ryan asks where Ava is...thinks Griff would know.  He growls a bit. Later, Ryan tells Ava's picture he's going to get rid of Griffin but has to make it look like an accident because Franco's in jail. 

Alexis is getting a new "shrink" ...Dr. Burns. Why not Dr. Maddox?? I mean?? Andre? She argues with Julian BUT sits at the bar anyway, even tho.  She talks to some rando dude at the bar who turns out to be a professor. He's reading a Russian history book. Feberge Eggs perhaps?  He's "normal looking' (non-soap) and good actor. I guess he was on Starscape?? He asks her out to dinner. That's him up there in Stargate. He's older now. He asked her out. And she says she's not ready to date yet. He leaves his card for her. 
Oh, I get it he's going to be her new therapist.  YEP HE IS. 

Um..what else. Oh, Spinelli, Jason and Sonny talking about SHank. Spin says his back story 'checks out". He did go to Afghanistan. He works with a woman called "Harmony' who's helps him open new centers --one in Beecher's Corners. 

Krissy tells Sonny that she's "found her people".  Sonny says Mike's worse. They hug.  

Sam is at The Cult Club House. She wants to know "more". He shows her a photo of Jackie Templeton who he met in Central America on a 'build" . 

Franco goes to get his MRI and at GH, Ava sees him and they talk. She says she knows he didn't do it. 

END: Ryan makes an excuse to talk to Griffin. Alone. 
Jason is going to rid to Beecher's Corners to find Harmony 
Kevin takes Griffin on the roof and has a hypodermic.

Now, GH in its' STUPIDITY shows Griffin on a promo for MONDAY'S SHOW!! Jesus!! Talk about sloppy!!! wow. 

Thursday, February 7, 2019

Scotty to the Rescue I am!! So, Franco got arrested yesterday by Jordan who CLEARLY doesn't know how to handle a gun.

Don't they take classes in that ish?? Because this is stupid.

We were just going to find out Gail's Will update and Liz calls Scotty. Of course she does.

They are searching Franco's art room. Liz goes nut, Griffin takes her out of there. Liz says he can't be the killer!! Griffin tries to reassure her. 

Franco is at the PCPD with Jordan. Won't talk, is going to sue the town. Scotty goes to see Franco.  Jordan tells him about the 'evidence'.
They find the licenses in Franco's office.

SLOPPY SLOPPY:  OMG. So DA lady and Jordan READ Ryan's files OUT LOUD to both Franco and Scotty. In the holding room. I cant' take this level of sloppy. I can take a LOT of stuff but not that. Why do they do that. WHY? 

Ava goes to see Ryan. Ryan has to turn over his Franco File to Chase, who has a warrant. He doesn't "want" to but he will. Ava finds out Franco is arrested for the murder. She's really angry that Ryan didn't tell her about Franco being close to losing control. Seh goes to leave. Kevin grabs her arm--hard! And says DON'T YOU WALK AWAY FROM ME! Ava leaves. Ryan throws everything off his desk. 

Kim and Drew and Oscar wait for test results from Terry. The tumor hasn't grown anymore, hasn't shrunk --it's just there. It's good it's not grown. Prognosis is the same. 

Gail's Will will be opened April 1st, which we all know is the anniversary of General Hospital's debut.

Sonny tells DA that HE doesn't want Franco to get away 'with anything again"!!!  She says something (I stopped listening). Then she says he doesn't have to worry, she's not going to do anything to he or his family. 
She leaves. He goes to talk to Alexis and they discuss SHank. 

Liz finds an invitation Franco. He drew a wedding invitation. 

I predict the SHOES Ryan wore will become key. Ava took them from the hospital. She's either going to find them and see the blood-- OR Ryan's going to get them and plant them.

Tillie has a trim today during GH so I must leave you with this quick post. Here's a fun photo!

Yes, MC is out as Griffin. I'm of course, hoping he goes out in some priest self-immolation but that would be hoping for too much in daytime!! He'll probably just slink away quietly. ??? Could be Ryan's last kill?? 

Speaking of Ryan, both Dave and I have noticed that people are NOT HAPPY with this story twist. I got a text from an old friend in Florida freaking out!! LOL.. Comments are running 80% at least against the whole Franco-Memory Implantation scheme. 

You all know I love Roger and Franco. This will give him good material so I am happy for that. 

You all know I love Jon and Ryan. This will give him good material so I am happy for that. 
It keeps Ryan around longer. 
WOOT! WIN-WIN for me!! 

Other news:
Emme (Lulu) just signed her contract. She's staying.

Dorothy Hamill

Aiden is ice skating.  Franco is talking about being a suspect. Liz invited Brucas to come and skate with Aiden. 

Peter calls Jordan and tells her HE'D BETTER BE UPDATED ABOUT LULU ASAP! ahahaha. Maxie asks if Dr. O could do the medical advice column.  Peter's like SHE TIED ME TO A BED! Maxie's like Welp. He decides it's ok if she works there. 

LULU and Laura.. Ryan comes in to hypnotize her. Laura says she's going to be in the room with her.  Jordan says she has to be there too. Ryan says NO way.  She may spill details of her personal life. No psychiatrist worth their salt would let the police be there--or anyone else. Lulu agrees to it and not to have it recorded. 
Ryan puts Lulu under--using a super sexy voice. ;) 
Lulu remembers about the list. Ryan tells her she called him and there were seven people on the list NOT nine.  He basically plants things in her head to remember about Franco.
She sees Franco's face instead of Ryan's !! 

Sasha surprises Nina. I guess Valentin set it up.  Sasha tells Val "She's calling the shots now" whatever that means.  He tells her whatever, but don't meet Lesil. 

Carly gets near-hyterical over JaSam's "Break-Up".. ugh. She's such a mouth. Of course, Jason tells her it's a ruse to catch SHank.  Then they basically talk about the entire story --so if you need a catch up on that, watch.

Art for Art's Sake

Sam is with Shank at the Metro. He's going to tell her "his story". She ends up telling him about her taking care of Danny and such. He offers her help. 

Jason is at Charlie's with Krissy. She's talking up Shank--he's doesn't buy it. She tells him that Dawn of Day is having a Valentine's Day Do.  Jason tells Krissy that Sam took care of her "special needs brother' when she was young and she has trust issues. 

Franco is with Ryan. Ryan is going to explore ALL of Franco's crimes. In detail LOL. Here's my cut and paste from Twitter so I didn't have to write it again! It was a VERY perfect description of the original Franco character-- his killing was about the spectacle and the 'game'--not the killing itself.  Ryan is writing it all down to use later. 

Franco is talking about his Art and Truth and Reality..and Blurred Lines. Death can exist beyond space and time-- "it's real, but it's also art".. Maximum impact. Killing those people, staging those scenes and trying to get the police to figure it out was really really fun."

Lulu is talking to Jordan. She wants to get hypnotized. Laura says no. Lulu said she's doing it anyway.  Jordan is going to have "Kevin" do the hypnosis. Laura is like NO WAY. He's changed too much. Jordan talks her into it. OMG, Ryan is totally going to plant Franco memories into Lulu's head!! Ryan does a great job explaining how he'll treat Lulu and Laura says she "Sees the man she married inside him again". ALL HAIL JL!! 

Franco and Ava have a nice talk at Kiki's grave. Nice scene. 

Sam tells Jason that Shank is good at selling 'his redemption story". She had a hard time flim-flamming his flim-flam LOL . She's just exhausted and has no clue how Kristina could ever fight off his mental gymnastics. 

Shank meets Sonny at Charlie's. Gives him the evil eye. 

So, the same people wrote today's show-- breakdown/dialog. Want you to watch the difference between the Ryan/Franco and Sam/Shank scenes. Delivery...investment, making the words their own. 
Stunning juxtaposition. 

Kristoff St. John

Sad news to report. Kristoff St. John of The Young and the Restless fame has died at 52 years of age. 

Daytime Confidential has the details. Many of his castmates and former acting friends are speaking out on twitter. Just a tragic situation.

Sunday Surgery: "Light" Reading

Let me preface this by saying I STILL have the cold from hell so I'm grumpy. Take all this with a gain of salt. Or cold medicine--whichever gets you through!! It's not pretty ...

On a personal note, I realized that I started writing for Gedstern's website in Feb of 1998. That makes me old hat at this, no? The Wubs Net became 'official" in about 2001... it's coming up on 20 years soon, kids. 

We have a new Taco Bell in our area--not sure if they have breakfast burritos? Could I even taste one with my stuffy nose? 

Friday, February 1, 2019


Carly is at Kim's. They talk about Drew and Her KNITTING. 

Schlub DREW goes into Julian's to tell him to stop the nice stuff he's doing. Like the cleaning service and meals. Not sure why other than he's being a dick. 

Lulu has a nightmare. She sees the door almost open, then wakes up screaming. Jordan wants to use hypnosis. 

Brick is on with Sonny--he's that sports guy that makes a cameo now and then. Sonny's expounding on Mike's story. 

Ava wants Olivia to see if she can use her "LSD POWERS" to help her catch Kiki's killer. It's actually a good segment. Ava's desperation and she knew olivia helped the PCPD once. Olivia's hesitation because she's scared. Olivia gets nothing from the photo. Sonny steps in and Ava leaves. Sonny is going to get Brick to look for Dante. At least Olivia and Sonny had a scene. 

Ava goes to Lulu's room. She wants to know if she knows anything. Lulu pleads with her and tells her she doesn't know. Ava snaps 'TRY HARDER" and shoves Kiki's photo in her face. CLASSIC AVA MOMENT!! She gets thrown out of the room. She and Laura have a nice moment in the hall about Ava's pain!! wow. 

Alexis and Kevin ..Kevin says he wants another copy of their prenup, he lost his. Alexis wants to start up sessions again. 

Julian goes to Kim... then Carly finds Drew at Charlies. Julian says he sees the way she looks at Drew, so he's bowing out.  Carly tells Drew he and Kim should be an item but he thinks she's only saying that because she likes JaSam. 
So, Kim I guess decided to take Julian the weirdest scene ever. 

Kevin is told Franco is a suspect for the murders. He decides to see Franco as a patient again! 

On Twitter today, I saw a tweet from Eric McCormack that Travelers is ending this season. No more after 3. WAHH!! I loves that show!!
