General Hospital Spoilers & Scoops!

Here’s the Scoop! 08.27.08

Will Carly let Sonny see Morgan? RUMORS say that the former spouses have a talk when Sonny returns from the island. He’ll tell Carly that being on the island brought back lots of memories of their happy times there as a family. EARLY RUMORS said Carly would be upset that Sonny took Kate to the island, a place they spent so much time together with the boys. That MAY still hold true, however, the LATEST is that Carly will tell Sonny that if the violence continues to stay at a low, she’ll let him see his son. Calm before the storm? Remember, Kate finds out about the limo sex around this same time.  Could it even be part of this same conversation when Clarice overhears?  RUMORS say that Jax believes Kate is lying in yet another attempt to undermine his wife and it appears that Sonny tells the truth.

I mentioned Jax moving back in around all of this. 
Is he buying Carly a new house?  Can they take the curtains with them? I love those curtains!  Or if the set designer at General Hospital happens to be reading this blog, can I have them?  They’d match my living room perfectly. 

More on Matt Hunter and his secret.  Well his secret about the counterfeit drugs his familial connection to Port Chuck is another story.  He spills to Maxie about his patient that died but is he sharing even more?  RUMORS say he’ll tell Maxie he has a person on the inside. Someone inside Karpov’s organization is feeding the doc information. Is this what Jerry overhears?  RUMORS say yes and the former Mr. Craig takes his info straight to Karpov who orders Matt Hunter dead.  Maxie promises to keep her trap shut but could this be how Maxie and Spinelli find themselves involved in the great drug caper?  Spinelli needs to heal first and remember, he takes a turn for the worse.  Patrick blames Matt for Spinelli’s setback.  Will Maxie share back?  RUMORS say she tells Matt about her parental situation and these RUMORS go on to say that Spinelli sees the two and gets the wrong idea.

Karpov causes trouble from afar.  He has his visa revoked, as I mentioned, and Jax MAY have something to do with that.  No worries, Sasha stays put and takes orders from Karpov until he returns closer to sweeps.

Is this even possible? Edward Quartermaine on jury duty? RUMORS say Edward and Epiphany land their butts in the juror pool and the case they are assigned to… Johnny’s murder trial!  Is that even possible?  Danielle our legal eagle may need weigh in on this one. Don’t stop reading there D! RUMORS also say that Scotty finds a way to have Alexis removed from the case leaving his butt in the prosecution’s chair. Can the victim’s father try the case? 

Is Johnny found guilty?  At some point I believe it does happen and this MAY be where Laura is able to step in and help but that would be when Genie Francis is said to be returning in October.  Unless that was all FALSE.  We will see.  RUMORS say that Johnny initially gets off on a technicality.  Johnny and Lulu’s story will continue with Nikolas trying to help the lovelorn couple and Lucky fighting against them.  When Luke returns, RUMORS say he’ll first side with Lucky.  Luke will play a role in Lulu getting better, just not at first.  Nikolas is on the right track, Lucky is not.

What about the Z’s?  Will Johnny listen to his family and ditch Lulu?  Hell No!  He loves that girl.  Going against his father, no biggie but will Johnny go against Claudia?  I’m hearing yes.

Scrubs Stuff… the PA system is used again. This time it’s Robin with the microphone.  The third time is not the charm from what I understand.  Scrubs gets it in two tries.  RUMORS have this happening next Friday.  First comes baby then comes marriage and the wedding SHOULD happen after Robin recovers from the delivery.

RANDOM RUMORS… Will Jerry admit to Alexis what he’s been up to?  Johnny does damage, to himself, for Lulu. Who fathered Matt Hunter?  RUMORS say it’s been changed a few times but Matt MAY now have a dad.  Jason tells Elizabeth he’s sorry. Ric saves the day and Johnny’s cushy visitation by stopping Scotty from shipping his client off to Pentonville.  Sasha visits the Jackal?

If you didn’t, here’s what you missed yesterday.

Funny the question of the OTHER Russian Mobster came up today…
some info on him just came across my screen. According to reports, he will be back sometime next week.

OTHER SCOOP! Tony Geary SHOULD return to taping on the 3rd of September. Also, RUMORS say that Luke, Lucky and Nikolas will have no idea that Laura is breaking through her catatonic state. Lulu will keep her mother’s secret (so I would guess those Scotty RUMORS are false) until Genie Francis makes her second return in October. It appears that the original information stands true, Laura will only interact with Lulu this time around.

Anyone remember the friendship of Sam and Maxie?
Fans actually liked the two vixens as friends but when LuSam began, it seemed that the friendship fizzled. Now I am hearing that Sam may lend some friendly comfort to Maxie and be at the hospital with her.

JoLu on the run again? RUMORS say Nikolas helps Johnny bust Lulu out of the looney bin.

    About time Matt and Maxie start to bond. Spin and Maxie do great undercover work (well… they use to) so hopefully they can help Matt get to the bottom of the drug situation.
    I’m still furious about Maxie slapping Matt. He did not deserve it. If anything, she could use a good smacking. I get it, she’s upset her best friend is sick. But Matt’s given her no reason to doubt his expertise.
    I hope they start to soften Matt’s character soon – the tough guy routine is wearing thin.

    GHLOVER, in PC anything is possible. Because if the rumor is true about Scotty taking over as prosecuter, in real life that would never happen. That also doesn’t sound right to me about him trying the case of his son’s murder. I am happy that Edward will be on the jury, since we don’t see the Q’s anymore, I will take whatever I can get. Can’t wait for Luke to come back and see Laura again, I always love their scenes and after al these years, they still play good together. Get rid of Karpov and his Sasha please, had enough with them. Matt should be Mac’s son, that would be so nice and then we can see Mac again more onscreen.

    Thanks for the scoops Regan! It looks good except for the whole ridiculousness surrounding Johnny’s trial. I can’t believe Guza actually expects us to buy any of those rumors that are floating around out there. Edward and Epiphany on the jury and Scotty prosecuting? What crap! Even a kid in junior high taking their first law class would know that isn’t possible!
    PS – that hilarious about the other Russian mobster. I must have esp or something :D

    I read about the jury duty in one of the mags, either SO Digest or SI Depth. From what I read, Edward tries to worm his way out of it but can’t. I didn’t know Pif will be on the jury as well; should make for some good scenes b/t the two of them.

    I just started watching GH again on Monday, although I’ve always followed the s/l’s. All I’m really interested in is Laura’s recovery, Spixie and Scrubs. THe rest? Eh. I miss the HOSPITAL in GH, which is why I like Nightshift. I also miss the family aspect of the show, and I don’t mean mob family! I mean the Q’s, Joneses, Scorpios, and yes, even the Cassadines. No one connects with who they’re related to anymore.

    Why does Jason tell Elizabeth that he is sorry? After the sweeps, will all of the people surrounding the Russian Mafia (karpov, sasha) stick around? I would rather see Bobbie, Edward, Monica and ghost Alan used more instead of these Russian mobsters.

    Regan, that was funny about the curtains.

    I don’t think Scotty can prosecute the case; he’s too close to the situation. If that happens, I hope someone points out to the judge that Scotty was Logan’s father and the judge makes him step down. As for Edward and Epiphany, I think it’s OK for Piph, but not for Ed because he knows Lulu.

    I don’t even know what to say anymore about this show. I am not watching regularly but I have been TIVO’ing this week for Laura but the story that involves her is ridiculous and Julie Berman is a shrieking, hawking mess who thinks that screams show anger and fear and fake crying invokes sadness. These scoops just validate the many reasons why not to watch GH. I say this with much sadness because of the emotional, complex experience this soap used to be. It has now been downgraded to the production and acting of a high school play. Even the amazing Genie Francis cannot help raise the show’s bar this time (like she did upon her last month-long visit). It is very simple, though. This show needs a new head writer period. Someone with an imagination that runs beyond the now boring, tepid, disturbing lives of gangsters and the self-destructive women who involve themselves in this life.

    BTW – I like the curtains too. I actually love the way Carly’s house is decorated. It has a mix of country and urban charm that is a cool, unique look. That is the best i can say about the show right now.

    Regan, I’m no lawyer but Edward can’t be on the jury for Johnny and Scott can’t be the prosecutor on the case either. Its too prejudicial since the victim is Scott’s son and Edward’s sorta a grey area. Since he is a relationtion (although a STEP one) to Lulu and her man’s on trial for her ex’s murder.

    I was disqualified for a jury because by brother is a corrections officer. I was disqualifed once because I have worked with children. There is no freaking way that a man who lives with one of the principal witnesses would sit in the jury. Edward also hates Scott and was very anti-Logan. Epiphany lost her son in a mob hit and works with Elizabeth who is related to Lulu. People have gotten out of jury for far less valid reasons. Why oh why can’t they at least try to make a little sense?

    Well, technically, that’s not true Regan. I saw on Dr. Phil a woman who thought the man she loved had died in war and found out he was still alive while she was married w/ children. Soaps and real life tend to coincide more than some might think. People sleeping w/ a relative’s spouse, people faking their deaths, the list, tragically, goes on and on. And, while soaps are not known for their logic, it would be nice to have a story line that makes some sense every so often. Like Judge Judy says “Don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.”

    In defense of Edward’s gun, I don’t believe they ever proved that Lulu took his gun. If PC had a better police department, they might have looked into registered weapons in the Q house, Nikolas’ house, and Lucky’s weapons. Tracy was the only one who ever said anything about the gun and that wasn’t to the authorities.

    I don’t think Dr. Phil or Jerry Springer can be relied upon for realism. I do give Jerry kudos for his Dancing with the Stars stint. Loved that.

    Regan…is the scoop still putting Maxie and Matt together just as a test for the pair? And what about Spinelli being thrown in that storyline as well?

    I still think this is being forced because of their past soap chemistry (which I never watched so maybe that’s why I’m biased against it happening).

    Also what’s the latest on Cody’s place in Jason’s organization? I heard the actor (Graham Shiels (sp?) had some not so favorable things to say about soap acting recently…that it was basically a paycheck until something better comes along. Did that bite him out of a job?

    I love the idea of Sam with Maxie at the hospital! I think people tend to forget how much Spinelli loved Sam (now that he’s all for Elizabeth). Plus who knows Jason may even show up! You have to admit Jasam was the perfect couple…happy, sexy, IN LOVE!!!

    Kill Matt im so sick of him. he soooo deserved that slap!
    Spixie all the way! And Lulu can just go mute for all I care. Her constant screaming has become so annoying!
    I really dont know what you see in Shrewlu Regan.

    It looks like we’re in for a Spin-Maxie-Matt triangle.

    I wrote on another thread that I really wouldn’t mind seeing a Spin/Maxie/Matt/Nadine quad…

    Sorry I couldnt answer you earlier Regan, I was having my procedure! 

    Ok, now in the ‘real world’  Scotty would not be able to try this case, in light of the fact that obviously the dead person is his son, conflict of interest.  Alexis should be the one trying the case since she really has no ties to anyone except Rick but they have never turned down an opportunity to go up against his ex. Unless Rick could prove that Alexis should not hear this case since Kristina is the daughter of retired mob boss Sonny, but that would have no bearing on anything, Alexis can be neutral.  

    In terms of Epiphany and Edward being in the jury pool, Edward once questioned by both parties and finding out that the his daughter is married to the Defendant’s girlfriend’s father, he would be dismissed, because he would have to either go against the ZaCrazy’s or  side with the citizens of Port Charles, which wouldn’t happen because of the way he was treated during the bad condom conspiracy.  So Epiphany would be picked because she could sympathize with what its like to lose a son to the mob.   Would have nothing to do with her working with Elizabeth. 

    So there you have it!

    sueboo54321, what about Maury Povich?

    I think the only reality we can expect from Maury would be DNA testing results. Perhaps, GH could have him on to blow apart the whole Alexis/ Sam thing. I still am not buying that.

    And, Jason and Sam the perfect couple? Eww. I guess they were perfect if your definition of the perfect couple is that one is in the relationship for financial security and the other because your boss asked you to keep his mistress.

    Regan, what is Maxie sharing about her parental situation? I find this interesting since her parents are WSB and could be tied in to the drug thing. Do you see a Felicia return? While most people’s hearts are with Luke and Laura, mine are with Frisco and Felicia. :)

    I hate the idea of a SpinMaxMatt triangle! Spinelli already had to compete for Lulu and he lost, to The Knuckle Scraper of all people, who humiliated Spinelli in fron of Lulu when he beat him up and forced a kiss on her, which Lulu conveniently decided to ignore. What also made me mad about that was that Logan was not even involved in the Dillon/Milo/Spin competition!

    Spinelli should not have to compete for yet another love interest; it’s not fair what the writers are doing to him! They keep hurting him, physically and emotionally, in order to facilitate other couples and story lines.
