FANNA in the basement! Finn tells her he killed Peter. She doesn't think he's capable. He says he is and he'd do it again LOL . They talk about him trying to save him then putting him in the freezer. She wonders why he didn't tell her. HE said he was afraid Violet would lose her last parent. Anna know s he couldn't move the body alone.
Liz called Scotty. Wants to know what Justifiable homicide is. She tells Scott about a "friend". He says the other friend (her) could be an accessory. He says JH is when it's "Killed or be Killed". He also figures out it was Finn because Finn had called him before. He says he wants to represent Elizabeth not Finn in this. Tells her to keep her mouth shut and call him if the police come. They hug. Jason peeks in the window... Scotty can't see him.
Jason calls Spinelli... "Thanks for the cameras, now I need you to do something else" ...then he asks if "he found it". Then he goes to see Elizabeth.

Anyway, he has to get to the basement. He finds the freezer.
Anna and Finn. He wonders why she's dragging her feet. She says because it's led her to a place she doesn't want to be. Then she tells him what the pilot said about Peter being on the roof but not alone. She says she has a theory that the person did something they regret; and they can't tell because it would endanger their lives and the people they love. OOOOOOOO!! OMG Then LIZ barges in "FINN!! I just talked to......." Then Finn tells Anna he'll show her what happened to Peter.
Monica has narrowed the COS down to Terry or Britt. OMG they are co-chiefs!! AHAHHA. Britt is pissed, she stomps off. Monica tells Terry they have to accept together or no deal. She goes off to talk Britt into it.
Finn says he'll show Anna what happened to Peter...they head to the basement. They get there and Jason is gone. BUT Finn doesn't open the freezer yet. So we don't know if Jason moved it or not.
Monica is told someone tampered with the cameras, they put a silent alarm on if someone over-road them.
Oh what a week. I had to watch three shows in one day on Hulu. Which by the way, is a good way to go!! No commercials and I swear the show flows better.

They find out from Spencer it was Trina that sent them. Trina doesn't tell on Spencer about him staying in town so long.
Britt daydreams about Jason; turns around and he's there at the nurses' station. She tells him she doesn't need him. Austin cracks a joke about them being cousins LOL .

Jason tells Monica that Spinelli vetted Austin and he checks out. Monica wants to talk to him about his engagement. She tells him that it's been hard for her after AJ. She says Carly was the one that always brought AJ down trying to get to him. He says he wouldn't be there if it wasn't for Carly.

THREE DAYS OF GH!!
Ok, there's something to be said about watching it on Hulu. So much less interrupted and I don't get cranky LOL
The dialog really has been great. BUT I'll talk all about that in Sunday Surgery.
I do like Lenny and Phyllis--but.. man, such a separate story. Maurice plays sad the best of everything in my opinion so that's good too.
Loved that the guy that drove the chopper was Marie's brother!!
And...Shirley Temples? One clunky dialog.. no teen drinks those!! LOL Should have been Blue Lagoons or Strawberry Daiquiris.
I hate Spencer like I'm supposed to--in a good soapy way. YEAH!! He's smarmy and conniving.
Willow is just a nothing character. I can't even.
BRITT sees SPENCER!!
Shawn's out and hits the POOL!
Glad TJ and Molly are out and about!
Anna realizes who was on the roof.
Aww, Aiden made the cupcakes for Violet's game.
Gov CUOMO came through for Shawn? Niceee LOL
Opening of the Savoy!!
Good three days. Nothing HUGE HUGE happened but good dialog and such.
Ok, on to the today--I'm going to make a new blog for it !!
I decided to interview the WubQueen to get a little background of her life with General Hospital. This is only the first part. The second part will be compiled with YOUR questions for her. So enjoy Karen's answers to these questions and please write a few for her in the comments and we will do it again.
1. What got you to start watching GH? Do you remember the first scene/show??
Oh boy.. dating myself here but I remember when my Mom watched it back when it started. They had an abuse storyline on with Dr. Hardy and it was big-stuff for the time. I really began watching when Genie Francis came on in 1977 as we are the same age and she was so "cool" LOL.
2. What other soaps have you watched over the years?
I'm an ABC Gal. Watched Day one of All My Children. Saw it in Patty Andolina's basement. We thought it was just the best thing ever. Tara/Phil...Erica. It was also the one show my mother and I watched together all through the years. Even if we weren't getting along, we'd watch AMC together at some point! LOL. One Life To Live came on when I got out of school and I'd watch before GH. I got into the whole Karen/prostitute storyline. Saw her courtroom reveal in real time. Great stuff. Ryan's Hope was also in there as was Loving and The City, Night Shift and Port Charles. guess I watched a lot of Daytime TV back in the day!
3. So many musical numbers from the Nurses’ Balls. Do you have a favorite?
Edward, Emily in 1997. Doing a "Together at Last" From Annie. The Ward House Kids were also included.
4. Do you have a favorite storyline? One that stands above the rest either negatively or positively
So many storylines, so little time!! I think the most important and timely was the Stone HIV/AIDS Storyline. It was very novel for the time and enlightened on a subject many wouldn't touch. Well written and poignant. Great acting as well. Can't beat that.
Now, I have to admit that it was Luke and Laura that hooked me. Not appropriate now but back then? It was everything. Hot-Hot and so romantical. Soapy and it just made me run home to watch.
5. What do you want to see happen over the next year or so? What is needed
to spark the storylines and the ratings?
I think GH has been on a good track with bringing back the Q family. Remember that a few years ago there was just nothing. Now, there's life in that house again just like it should be! The Nixon Falls Saga time is overdue, that's for sure. The teens set is being buffed up with Spencer. I actually like the couple shake up. The show has to keep going in the direction of the younger characters if they hope to attract some more audience.
6. A soap opera staple is when someone isn't who they say they are and then revealed. (different name, different history, romantic past not mentioned).
Can you see any character today who would benefit from being an imposter?
The one character that could lend themselves to that would be Dante. The Turks could have absolutely switched him out. It would give some life to his story!
7. You have made it clear that the cast is bloated and that there are some characters
that are expendable. What 5 characters are so essential to the entire show that they
should be there on the last episode?
Putting me ON THE SPOT OR WHAT!! LOL... Let me see if I can do this. Laura of course. She needs to be included. I need to represent old school GH and Elizabeth does that well. We also need a Quartermaine so I'm taking Ned. That leaves 2 more people. I wish there was a Ward. Let's go with Robert Scorpio and one youngin' from the Corinthos Clan. I pick Joss.
8. When it eventually ends, how do you envision the final scene?
Probably a hell-scape type thing with the 5 characters setting off to find if anyone else survived the nuclear war or disease. "Last Soap On Earth".
This is one of those "fillers" we do that open a blog page for your comments on the days show, but have nothing to do with the show itself. I'm sure you are used to this by now, so here it goes...
Have you met a celebrity? I don't mean saw one on stage or in a distance. But actually face to face and said a few words. I have (this is Dave).
Brooke Shields - I was a waiter at Chi Chi's in Princeton, NJ while she was attending the University. (Remember Chi Chi's?) She came in with 7 other people and they asked me and another woman to take care of the group. She is stunningly beautiful and so polite and genuine.
Greg Louganis - He was starring in "Jeffrey" in NYC. After the show I did the stage door thing and got his autograph and said a few words.
Mark McGuire - When I lived in CA, we had the same optometrist. One day I was there at the counter, he came up to the counter and I said "Hi" and he patted me on the back.
Halle Berry - In the lobby at the premiere of Wicked in LA in 2007. I turned around and she was right there. I said "Hi" and she said "Hi" and I said "Enjoy the show". She is very small and petite and really is one of the most beautiful women in the world.
Pia Zadora - Two years ago, on Mother's Day, she got a delivery from our company. I didnt know it was her until I got to the guard gate and they asked me for the resident's name. I looked on the ticket and saw her name. Due to social distancing, I stood a good 15 ft away and when she came out, I thanked her and wished her a happy mother's day and walked away.
So today's question is pretty simple. If you ever met a celebrity, mention their name(s) before you start your comment. Of course, you dont have to participate but it can be fun. On with the show!
I worked at Chi Chi's too--in Rochester! The biggest name we had come in was Foster Brooks. I'm actually pathetic when it comes to meeting celebs. Mine are all GH
Nancy Lee Grahn- she has great get togethers. Saw her in Manhattan years ago. Really fun time.
Lisa LoCicero, Dom Z--Toronto Canada. Great venue. I also met a fellow blogger that I knew for years so it was double fun.
Vanessa Marcil, Maurice Benard-- Staten Island ... We went to Vanessa's charity event at her uncle's jewelry store. What a fun, funky night! One of the Mob Wives was there too. Maurice was charming and Vanessa was really personable and approachable. I also saw them out at a diner after the event. We were the only people in there. Vanessa's son Cassius ran into me when we started out the door.
Roger Howarth-- Syracuse NY. Interesting venue; old theater. I actually met him in the parking lot when we both pulled up at the same time. He had driven from his NY home. Meet and greet was great and he was VERY funny during his talk.
We had 3 reveals this week: Spencer 'came out'...Maxie told Nina the secret and we found that Austin is a Q. Unfortunately this chain of energy didn't extend to The Nixon Falls Spin-off which is basically what I wanted the most. BUT! Much history and fun so I'm all good.
All in all a solid B+ week for me. I just got Panera's great cheese bagel. Have one with me?
Alan meets Charity when he goes to Pawtuck NY to escape his life. This clip also has Edward and Jimmy Lee. Also great clip of Anna and Burt discussing Alan's plane crash. Heh. Great little arc. SO MUCH "GONE GIRL"!!!
This is Jimmy Lee and Charity. Also has explanations about his Quartermaine relationship.
And Alan gets a letter from Charity when she left for him after she married Jimmy Lee...They went to Provo Utah. MONICA wants to BE FRIENDS!! SHE FRIENDZONED ALAN!!
NY Hospital: Anna is about to discover MikeSon when a Nurse stops her and asks if she can help. Looks like MikeSon might recognize her voice. Then Lenny comes in. Not good news. Cancer.
Valentin tells Phyllis that Nina is his exwife. Phyllis doesn't like him LOL "she's doing fine on her own". She mentions Mike. Anna finds Val. They leave. Phyllis goes to see Lenny. It's Pancreatic Cancer and she breaks down.
Q's: Ned calls the lawyers. They will do their own DNA test. They bitch about Austin. Michael says they should try to 'win Austin over"
GH: Monica catches Austin looking at the photo wall. She wonders if he's trying to pull one over on the family like his dad did back in the day. Oh, he asks if she liked any Qs. She says Lila and AnnaBelle. AHAHA the dog!!
Pool: Dante is mad Rocco is doing cannon balls, tells Chase to arrest him LOL Dante asks how married life is. Chase is like I CAN'T WALK.
Brando and Sasha talk. Not about anything really. Then Sasha blurts out she wont' let Brando near the baby if he's in the mob scene.
Metro: Carly and Jason talk about letting Brando in the biz. Sam walks up. Sees the ring. Asks to talk to Jason. He says sorry you didn't hear it from me. Did you tell Danny? Shes' like NOPE--that's your department. She's like: yeah, you and Carly have a connection yada yada. THEN she talks to Carly, hold her hands and says: "If I can help with anything, let me know". DEAR GOD. Seriously? Ok, that was an EPIC letdown.
Jason kisses Carly's cheek before he goes to GH to see Monica. She swoons a bit.
Willow and Nina talk at the Gatehouse. Nina is waiting for Michael so she can take Wiley to the pool. Oh great, Carly comes around. :EYEROLL:
MikeSon calls Nina and asks her to come "home"
Here we go!
Pool Set being used, I Like it!! People even got "in" the pool. Oh, Gladys has nice new blonde hair. Wow she does look younger! She tells Brando that now there's a shake up at Corinthos' Coffee, he should jump in. Carly listens in. She tells Gladys she's not family. Then Joey Novak (the younger) walks in.
Portia friendzoned Curtis.
Bar set for NYC. Valentin says to Anna he found out what the "sing along" was in the back. "Some woman named Maeve is leading them in Danny Boy"!! OHHH Ryan's HOPE!! He says they have to Go to the hospital to talk to the chopper guy later (AH!! NY Methodist where Sonny is). and the bar reminds him of a Pub they went to in Dublin. They get a call that the guy is back in the hospital.
ANOTHER SET---NY Methodist for Lenny. The doc comes out and Lenny goes in for tests. MikeSon says he might rememeber NYC but it could just be the movies he's seen. By the way a ton of people noticed he's not gray anymore LOL. He goes to talk to the doctor about Lenny and of course, VAnna just miss him . Because it's GH.
Mike finds a cap in the hall that looks like Mike's old cap. The "hears" memories of talking to "Dad".
Valentin walks right into Phyllis. I think he knows her from when she was in PC to visit Nina?
Ellie left Spinelli. He's drinking and talking to Jason. He says Ellie didn't like the direction their life is going and wanted to leave. Jason says Spin can always walk away from the business. Spin says he can't. He basically says since Jason came back he's "Jackal" Again and WUBS him LOL. GEESH
Maxie tells Sasha she's leaving PC. They talk about Sasha being pregnant. Maxie has on a really heavy leather coat LOL BLACK!
THen Maxie tells Spinelli about going to Texas and wants he and Ellie to have Georgie the entire time she's gone. Spin says Georgie would love Texas. Maxie is sad he and Ellie are splitting up.
Brook Lynn goes to Nina's... she tells Brook she knows her secret . Brook freaks out. Nina wants to know why she went through with the charade. Also, why she won't tell Valentin the truth because he'd agree to protect that baby at all costs. Brook Lynn says that's Maxie's call. AND they think if they tell Valentin the truth, he'll tell Charlotte.
Val is chatting with Phyllis while she waits for MikeSon
Anna almost sees Sonny open the door.
NOTE: Previews show neither Anna or Val see Sonny.
WELP! Yesterday was a WHOPPER!!
OMG So much going on today
Maxie tells Nina she would not snatch a baby that wasn't her's... DOH! THEN she says Can I tell you a secret??? SHE TELLS Her about the baby thing!! Wow..!!! She says "Bailey doesn't exist, that's my baby, Louise"!! She tells her EVERYTHING. Nina realizes that Valentin is bonding with the baby... Maxie says SO WHAT!! It's her life at stake!
Monica tells everyone that Austin is Jimmy Lee Holt and Charity's son..ergo, Edward's grandson. Someone says: Who's Jimmy Lee? Olivia blurts: OH! Edward's bastard son with Blache LeSur! I read his book"! ahahahahahaa. Anyway, Scotty brought DNA, affidavits and birth cert to show he is who he is. Ned says so what, Jimmy Lee got cut out of the will by Edward. Austin says Jimmy Lee died 6 months ago. They argue. It boils down to Austin contesting Edward's will. Valentin says "Welp we can't vote yet, meeting adjourned".
Spencer says he loves to surprise people. He hugs Laura. He and Spencer make up and hug. Spencer is staying at the Metro. Ava bops in, see Spencer and stops cold. They banter. She says she's moving out. HE acts surprised. heh. Ava goes to pack her remaining things.

Nixon Falls: Lenny's heart is giving out. Sonny won't LET HIM DIE!! Phyllis goes to google to find a good cardiologist. I bet GH comes up! LOL Lenny says they can't afford anything. Sonny says not to worry.
Valentin and Anna are going to NYC to find the pilot
Phyllis finds someone in NYC Methodist Hospital
Maxie is leaving PC (KS has a medical issue and had to leave the show for a bit).
Wyndemere, Nik is all upset as the movers take out Ava's stuff. Laura consoles him. Says the investigation might be ending soon. Tells him about the designer boot and print found. OH! Laura mentions SPENCER and he hasn't called Nik. She says he's off on some remote place. Nik says it's good because the "stalker" can't find him.
Spencer is at the park..he and Trina talk in a tree lol (real tree). Then he calls her out for being on the phone. She says Joss doesn't think he's real "like Jan Brady and George Glass"--You don't watch classic sitcoms?? LOL He freaks when she tries to take a selfie. She calls him a diva. Then she tells him they might be closer to catching the stalker because of the boot print and the size. He leaves quick!
Spencer throws paint covered boots in the dumpster.
Ava and Nina are in Ava's old Penthouse which she could get back I guess. Nina talks to MikeSon. He tells her to come back to Nixon Falls. She says not yet...but she thinks of him 'daily'. Oh, Ava is living with Nina. She asked her to move in. They talk about Nina and MikeSon.
Scotty and Austin. He wants free medical advice because when they do what they are doing, he'll be filthy rich. Scotty says the town will probably hate him for what he's about to do to the Quartermaines and Michael. "There's Strange Energy in this town"...
Maxie is still yelling about her baby at the Q house. She says she has to move. Brook says she's too emotion to go right now. MONICA walks in: MAXIE! You're here again!! LOL Maxie says not to worry, she's leaving "Say goodbye to Bailey".
Q House: ELQ Meeting Time! Val wonders who will get CEO...Ned or Michael. Michael says he doesn't want to have the job. He's busy with Wiley and Aurora. Says Ned is the best man for the job.

Then the meeting gets called to order and Scotty says it can't start until all Quartermaines are present.

Maxie goes to see Nina "I need help" she says. She wants to know if leaving PC helped Nina not think about Wiley as much. She tells Nina she wants to hold Bailey all the time. "you know she's not yours, right" Says Nina. NO I DON"T! says Maxie. She tells Nina she wouldn't steal her, she'd be bringing her home.

Alexis is in GH getting her wrist checked. Dante is in with her as part of the PCPD. Sam comes in and hugs her. They talk. Then Austin comes in to examine ALexis. Sante are all: WHY YOU HERE? He tells them he's move to town. Sam isn't happy. (He never says his last name of course). Anyway, Sam wants Alexis' first doctor, Portia. Austin leaves, pages Portia.
Britt dreams of Jason in her office then Jax walks in to check on her. Jax talks about their night together. Britt basically friendzoned him! Jax says that Carly is drawn to danger and he thought it was Sonny's fault but it's Carly. Dr O comes in and Jax leaves. Dr. O is sad she told Britta to follow her heart only to get it trampled.
Carly tells Jason she had a few things to say to Britt. He's like WHY? She says to let her know there was NO HOPE of them getting back together. She then says "Unless YOU want to"!! Jason tells her not to lie. "I ONLY LIED about BEING IN LOVE!! this is HARD FOR EVERYONE"!! He tells her not to talk to Britt. Heh. Walks away.
Carly walks down the hall, runs into Austin. He asks her where the Corinthos wing is. It comes out that Michael is her son. He says he has big shoes to fill since Lucas LEFT GH? What? Did I miss that? Anyway, Austin wants to know all about the head of the board, Monica Q.
Jordan tells TJ and Shawn that Molly is going to file a complaint against Judge Carson. They talk about what could happen to Shawn. He could get out with time served. Curtis ends up coming in and getting the whole story from Jordan.
Maxie runs to the Q house, tells Brook Lynn Austin is moving to PC. She's YELLING about Bailey being HER BABY! GOD! like YELLING!! Brook Lynn tells Maxie she's being too paranoid. Maxie cries badly. Brook Lynn says that maybe they should stop the pretense. Maxie says no because Peter's still out there. Brook says that's why she has to stay away from the Q house. Maxie says she has to leave town (KS had surgery so I think that is the plan to have her gone for a bit).
TJ and Molly talk to Marty and Jordan about Judge Carson and her statements they taped. Jordan is sending them to the judicial review board.

The guard goes to hit Shawn and Jordan walks in to stop him!

Martin goes to see Val. They talk about ELQ. Martin thinks Michael might be willing to share power with him. Valentin can't listen right now, he's thinking about Anna.
Carly chickens out about talking to Monica..makes Jason go alone LOL He tells Monica she's like DOH!! Then she says if he's happy, she's happy.
OMG Carly totally lies to Britt and tells her that she and Jason admitted they loved each other right after Sonny's funeral-- and waited until now to act on the feelings. Making Britt believe that Jason never really cared for her!! Carly said what she and Jason had was fleeting. And what THEY have is "forever"...oh, Jason overheard part and he's not happy! Britt storms off
Alexis hugs Molly; Shawn hugs TJ. They are at the PCPD now.

THURSDAY'S SHOW: Pretty dull after the last few days:
Spencer sees Trina reading in the park. He brought her water. She's mad he ghosted her at the fireworks. They talk about art and France.
Ava and Portia talk at Charlies. Mutual admiration camp.
Stella and TJ have lunch together, Stella is talking about Curtis and Jordan. Looks like she wants them together and not Portia. WEIRD.
Alexis and Shawn talk in the jail. She talks about solitary confinement--she's going stir crazy and the walls are moving in. She's starting to have a panic attack. She settles down then he tells her that he told Molly about the Judge Carson thing and she freaks out again. She knows Molly will charge in there for justice..
Curtis and Jordan talk at the PCPC about their divorce. She's been dragging her feet on signing the divorce papers. She says she's been busy. Then says she will do it asap. Puts her wedding photo in the drawer.
Martin and Nik talk at the Metro about his divorce. Martin says they found "unique" boot prints at the gallery.
Then Nikolas finds Ava at Charlie's and tell her he wants to run away with her. Wants to sail around the world until the stalker is caught. She won't take Avery away from PC.
Molly has lunch with Judge Carson. OMG She immediately goes in with you give black people different sentences than you do others. WOW! She goes on and on. Martin interrupts and asks if there's a problem. They go back and forth. Molly digs her heels in. I think Martin is trying to smooth things over with the judge but will help Molly. OMG She leaves and Marty is taking to her "I've known you for 20 years". She says she's even had 'black roommates'!! WOW.. and some people only respond to incarceration!!! WOWWWWWW
Nikolas goes to Mike Corbin's grave... he's his grandfather. Courtney was his mom. I forgot that for a half minute.
WOW!! Martin recorded the judge saying those things!! He takes it to Jordan and Molly and TJ are already there!! Ohhhhhhh good twist!!
Well, today is my mom's birthday and I'm out of town. It's storming here which doesn't bode well. LOL
Anyway, FUN show yesterday and I have some questions for you to answer!!
Do you think it was a good idea for Sam and Liz to find out about Jason's marriage the way they did OR would you have liked to have had him tell them? I mean, I think he's father to one of their boys, right?
Britt and Jax: Yeah...or throw-up?
IF Sonny walks into the Jarly wedding: do you want it to be WITH his memory back or WITHOUT his memory back?
NuSpencer first impressions: YEAH or NAY?
That's it!! I'll see you all tomorrow. July is just rushing by compared to last year LOL. It seemed to crawl. Now our calendar is getting full again. Feels strange.
Considering Britt and JAX hit the sheets I was going to SKIP TODAY but since I'm gone tomorrow for my mama's birthday, I thought I'd be good and show up. NOT HAPPY Tho. I mean, really? UGH. Can't even. I'm closing my eyes.
Everyone at Charlie's to have a surprise party for Chase. Jordan, Sam...Dante...Liz, Finn..Anna.. Violet.. Michael all in baseball uniforms. Sasha is not playing she's PG. They yell surprise!! They got them Bride and Groom baseball shirts. Everyone is happy but...Michael. THEN Sam overhears Michael talk about Carly and Jason getting married. She runs out of the bar and Liz runs after her.
Liz took a bottle of vodka! They do shots and talk about how horrible Carly is and always wanted Jason. OMG Sam has a bag of Jason's stuff. SHE BURNS HIS JACKET-- dominos set and Springsteen Tickes they never used. Then she THROWS A GIANT BOTTLE OF TEQUILA ON IT!! AHAHHAH BOOM!! OMG then, the fire department calls DANTE and tells him they are down at the pier burning stuff. Finn goes with him. There's a fireman putting out the fire and Sam and Liz are shitfaced!! OMG! Dante tries not to laugh. Sam says it's her independence day. Great fun.
Jax and Britt. No comment. LOL OMG BUT Britt totally tells him the story of BBQing Emma's baby doll! AHAHAHA TOO FUN.

Jason gives Carly an aquamarine ring, blue like his eyes. Vincent Novak is at the Metro Court. Jason thinks it's to make peace. They are going there to watch fireworks and show him they are engaged.
NICE SUMMER WARDROBE TODAY!
Trina and Spencer are at Pier 54. He's laying in the sun. Wants her to lay there too. Says "in your birthday suit".. She's like NO.. Come to the park with me (Joss texted her to go there because she has to take Avery with her).
Cam is talking to Jake in the park. Jake is like "We cool" Cam is like "Um, I can tell you are still mad" . They talk it through, end up crying. Awww. Trina comes over. Spencer says he's not ready to "meet" Cameron and Joss. Oh, Trina calls him Victor. I missed that yesterday. When Spencer doesn't show up, Trina gets sad and goes to watch the fireworks with her mom. Cam tells Joss he thinks there's more to their relationship than a kiss.
At the Qs, Monica is suspicious of Maxie always coming over. She asks Maxie where Georgie and James are. Maxie says with her Mom and Mac. Brook tells her to stop coming over to see Bailey after Monica leaves. Maxie is like This is the last time. Brook doesn't believe her. Then Brook goes to change and Maxie is talking to Louise and Monica hears her!!
Valentin texts Anna to come over. She comes over and they do sparklers. THEY KISS and it's so nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VANNA!!!
WATCH THE SHOW TODAY!!
Not sure if I'll be here today for the show. Today seems like the 4th because everyone has it off. We may be going to our neighbors. SO!!!. I put this here for your placeholder and discussion board.
GH used to have GIANT 4th of July shows... picnics and such. It was a tradition with the show for sure. I guess graduation over-shadowed it .
Hope you had a good day yesterday. I did lawn work--and am sore LOL. Going to be a hot one here.
TODAY'S SHOW: I was here for 20 min!!
Spencer's real face came out!! Looks like a Cassadine. Looks like Nik's kid. He says Hi to Trina when she's all dressed up. She's like WHO are you???
Jax and Britt: NOPE GET OFF OF THIS ... NOPE NOPE. I LOVE Britt and Jax is just NOT FOR HER.
Nikka the bartender!! Love her.
Geesh, Ava's gallery is sure sprayed all over.
Alexis is talking to her lawyer self in solitary
Actually, a lot happened this week. I have a feeling everyone is at odds with what's going on. Good news is, GH Spiked in ratings with Peter's death so we have that to celebrate. I am thinking that things might just keep going well for the show given the storylines. Love them or hate them, I find the writing intriguing and dialog on-point!
By the way? I vote: Sizzle !!
Gee, a HAPPY WUBBY! What to do? Eat donuts of course!! Here we go!
TV characters, for the most part can be one sided. A cop will be seen in the station and not always anywhere else. Same for firemen, detectives, teacher, etc. But the beauty of a soap opera character is that they hold many hats and many roles if they stay on the screen long enough. And Stuart Damon played many roles with just one character and he did it brilliantly. Son, Brother, Husband (more than once), Doctor, Patriarch, and more. He got to play the role in many different angles and it always brought something new to his performance. The show knew his strengths and played to them and let him shine in the role. And he did just that.
When looking back at his work, there are some scenes that will stand out more than others. Who hasn't seen the wedding to Lucy with the red dress? We want to remember some of his scenes where his performances may not have been the most popular, but were poignant and memorable nonetheless.
This was the storyline that gave him his Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor. Watching this scene, it is easy to see why. He nailed it.
Monica was having an affair with Rick. After Alan Jr. was born, Tracy was trying to convince him that Rick was the father. Out of anger, Alan was going to get revenge on them, but realizing that he would be the prime suspect, stopped the carnage. This is what they call "old school".
Now here is a scene you don't see every day. Who remembers that Alan and Bobbie almost got horizonal? Alan and Monica had some epic fights, and this one was really well done, mature and brought up some good points. Really good scene.
This is Karen's favorite. And rightfully so. I so wish actors got to stretch there chops and have more fun once in awhile. Sure, we get the nurses ball, but its people singing into a microphone now. This was one of the best, hands down.
This would be Dave's favorite. I was spoiler-free for the 50th anniversary episode. I had no idea this was coming, and so glad it did. I suppose this was meant to be a little "closure" between Monica and Tracy, but it really would have skyrocketed if Lesley was there. It was great to see everyone again though, and as always, the acting was spot on and the best it could be.
Thank you to Dave for putting this together!! WOW.. what a great trip down Alan Q lane!! He was such a character. The only thing I would add is a nice Lucy/Alan wedding photo:
Note: There WILL be a tribute episode, it was announced on Twitter. Not sure when!!
Art Gallery: Trina Maces Nik. Nik washes his eyes out. Hoodie Ninja skulks around. Trina calls Laura to come and help Nik. Then They leave for GH. Trina comes back for something. Sees a thing that Ninja guy dropped. He comes out. She tries to spray him but the spray is out. Then Something falls and they both look up and gasp.
Trina's party!! Jordan looks stunning. Ava and Nina are there. Ava tells Nina to get Curtis to give her boyfriend from Nixon falls a job there LOL. Ava talks to Jordan about finding her stalker. Jax talks to the kids... Nina gives Joss a present. Curtis talks to Portia...zzzzzzz.
Cam and Joss wonder where Trina is. Nina gave her a journal. Sore subject. Oh, Cam mentions ROLLING PAPERS..making me gasp. Like they know about POT? Joss remembers then that Cam read her other journal and gets all mad at him. LOL geesh. They argue. OMG then Cam says she called him a bad kisser in her journal. She grabs him and KISSES HIM!! OOOOOOOOO!! YES JOSS!
Michael is trying to understand the Jarly wedding. They explain about the Novaks and the bombing etc. They go through the whole thing. Michael is like: let's set a date!! "Who's telling Monica"?? LOL He thinks it's a good idea. Jason thinks back to telling Britt. Sad. Then Carly takes off her rings. Good dialog.
Brad and Britt talking on the jail phone. Talking about Gray's Anatomy. Then about Wiley. Then about Jason. YOU need to watch this, it's too funny and SO Brad/Britt! She thinks back to Jason. Great dialog. Brad has a parole hearing soon! yeah!!
END: Trina walks into her party covered with blood. It must have been a bucket of blood over Ava's desk and it fell on her!!!
So, this is what we know. There are a few photos of Nicholas online-- I'm not even sure if they ARE him or not lol. BUT--supposedly this kid is playing NuSpencer, SORA'd to fit into the teen scene. While I loved NB, we really needed a rich prince to come into the quad. I think tomorrow will be 'reveal' day for Spencer. We shall see!
And NO BLOOD! You sure you want this? I'm not sure I want this!! Tough week for me while watching. So here we go-- Gird your loins.
