General Hospital Spoilers!





Here’s the Scoop! 03.12.09

Yesterday I asked, where’s Ric? That hand we saw snatching one of Jerry’s DVDs, that was him. Nice to see TPTB using Rick Hearst to his fullest potential. Where will see him next? Watching the DVD! Ooooohhhh the suspense is killing me. Sorry, sarcasm is not always my best color. So Ric finds out that Claudia hired Devlin who then shot Michael and it’s just the right information to hold over his former lover’s head. Let’s keep track here. Kate, Ric and soon Jax will all know who hired Ian Devlin. And they all keep it a secret?! It’s soap, secrets are part of the deal, and I get that, but Jax? The RUMORED spin we’re going to get for this one is stupid IMO. Jax doesn’t want Carly to go running back to Sonny, so his answer is to keep this HUGE secret from his wife? Let me know how that works out for you buddy.

What about Claudia? Surely this secret is coming out, right? Too many people know the truth. Ask Jake Spencer, err Morgan, about that one. How in the world will Guza redeem Claudia and not have to kill her once the truth is out? Get your salt boulders out as this MAY be Fanfic but what the hell, here’s what’s out there… Supposedly, the secret is kept past the time of Michael coming out of his coma. In fact, the secret MAY be kept long enough for Michael to develop a rapport with his new step-mom. When it does finally come out, these RUMORS say that Michael isn’t as hellbent on revenge as he once was (nice to see the bullet to the head has changed your outlook on things Mikey!) and Sonny, well Sonny sort of likes his new wife, so no harm no foul. But there’s always the Carly contention and Claudia better stay clear of Hurricane Carly.



The next logical question is what will Jason do? Wouldn’t he want Claudia dead for what she did to Michael? Remember, Jason’s giving the biz back and goes back to being Sonny’s enforcer. Jason does what Sonny says and IF the above comes to fruition, Sonny doesn’t want his wife six feet under.

So basically what COULD all these mean? TPTB love Carly and Sonny, no matter how they can get them. They’ll take a re-do with Sarah Brown and Maurice Benard. They’ll throw Laura Wright’s Carly into the mix as a thorn in the Corinthos’ side. In the end it’s the two Carly’s and Sonny in a storyline. That’s a win in TPTB’s eyes. Where does that leave Jax? IF the Fanfic turns into an actual storyline, that would mean the end of CarJax, right?

Johnny has a lot to lose as well, especially where Lulu’s concerned. Yeah right! Lulu cares about herself and no one else, she will not care that Johnny had a part in Michael’s shooting. Sorry Lulu fans but this girl was brought on as the Second Coming of Laura Spencer and she’s nothing like her mother. They write her terribly and I just don’t see this version of Lulu caring about Michael. But there is some Johnny drama coming up on the mob front. Sonny’s back and calling all the other mobbies to a meeting to announce that he is back on the throne. Claudia wants Johnny to attend to show his support for Sonny and the newly-merged organizations; Johnny says thanks, but no thanks. You’re sitting on a ticking time bomb sis, and I don’t want either one of us in the vicinity when it explodes! The mob prince comes up with a plan and goes to Sonny telling him he’ll back him as the head of the family if he divorces Claudia. Does anyone ever deliver Sonny Corinthos an ultimatum? Sonny tells Johnny, sorry kid, not happening. Question though, COULD this be the meeting Jason wears a wire to?

This sort of all brings us back to Ric… He tells Claudia I know what you did and now I’m going to blackmail you. Sonny offers Ric a “low level” job at the mobster meeting but is that good enough for the power hungry Ric? When he goes to Claudia after the meeting and tells her he knows her dirty little secret, Ric also tells Claudia he wants her to snoop on her hubby and feed him the goods. Hasn’t it always been about Ric getting one over on his brother? Now that Ric is a thorn in Claudia’s side and no longer her bed buddy, what’s a mob moll to do? RUMORS say Claudia does what she does best and orders a hit on her brother-in-law. True to form though, these RUMORS say it’s a botched hit.

Helena Cassadine… What’s up her sleeve? Emily Quartermaine according to some, but will Ethan Lovett also come out of the psychotic Granny’s bag of tricks as well? Both Ethan and NotEmily aka Rebecca will be on mysterious phone calls in the weeks to come. Who’s on the other end? NotEm SHOULD be conversing with Helena, Ethan’s chat fest partner MAY not be revealed but we’ll surely be led to believe it COULD be Helena.



Whose kid will Ethan be? I think it’s safe to say or ASSUME that Holly is the proud mama but who’s the daddy? Is it Luke? Robert? There is some CHATTER out and about that Anthony Geary MAY be pushing for Ethan to be a Spencer.

Which brings me to Lucky… Poor, dumb Lucky. You all know from reading my blogs that I hate how they write Lucky as such an idiot. Once again, I will remind TPTB (just in case they’re reading) that Lucky is a SPENCER. Not to mention a cop who doesn’t realize the grifter just picked his pockets? Come on!

Is Guza taking Robin’s Post Partum Depression storyline too far? Like many have mentioned, I don’t know anyone who has had PPD. Some friends have had the baby blues but as I understand it that is something completely different. At first, I liked the PPD storyline as it is something very real but I’m not so sure I buy this whole forgetting your kid thing. Some have questioned why Patrick wouldn’t want a nanny if he’s concerned about Emma’s well-being. I see it as more of Patrick’s medical background telling him Robin has PPD, but the husband and father in him just isn’t ready to truly admit that. In terms of SPOILERS for Scrubs, they’ll continue to have their issues and will butt heads over Michael’s care. Robin’s PPD has been RUMORED to be wrapping up by month’s end with Robin joining a support group. One WHACKY RUMOR has Robin attempting suicide and Patrick having to make a tough decision. I don’t buy that one. We still have hot Brad coming and Patrick’s misery bringing him to Jake’s to mix it up with the NASCAR dude. But as a better part of today’s SCOOPS has been about Michael, let’s talk Scrubs and Michael. RUMORS have had Robin making progress with Michael’s treatment when Patrick has accepted defeat. Will Patrick be happy with Dr. Scorpio that she did it all behind his back? The old Patrick never liked being proved wrong.



RANDOM and CRAZY RUMORS… Did Rebecca Herbst already agree to a pay cut? One RUMOR says she’s signed a year extension to her contract. JaSam is RUMORED to be getting the hard push as an attempt to boost ratings. When LL2 got dropped, the RUMOR mill said JaSam was also slowed down. IF Ethan isn’t a Spencer, look for Johnny-Lulu-Ethan angst. Fan of Spinelli’s latest adventure? I don’t hate this one but I felt like there were too many people on Spinelli’s trail. Winnie SHOULD be around for a little longer.

Claudia hasn't learned anything yet she shouldn't be ordering hits on anyone since the first one got all screwed up

I also don't knaow anyone that had PPD so I don't know how they feel or the symptoms but I just can't feel sorry for Robin. IMO they are writng her as a selfish brat

Thanks for all your spoilers Regan. I am really getting tired with this show. Can't stand and FF through all of Spinelli crap going on. I like him, but Maxie shrieking and the whole rest of the gang is really getting on my nerves. Jason seems to be around for everyone, but could never find 5 minutes for Liz, but again let's not go there.

I am sick of the whole Robin PPD thing. I know first hand from experience with my first child about PPD. I also know it is hard to admit to yourself that you have a problem, but she is a Dr. right? She should side with getting help because no one wants to feel like they do with PPD . . . it stinks!

Any chance they will drop the JaSam reunion? That would be awesome.

Anyone see MB on The View today? He is actually very personable. He was there with his 4 kids. He made a funny comment when asked about Sonny's relationship with Jason. One of the women commented on their closeness and he said he would totally be up for that s/l . . . I LMAO.

I heard from another spoiler site that Guza is in love with the girl who plays Winnie, so she will be on for a long time. Nothing against the actress, but I don't care for Winnie and it is a shame the veterans are pushed to the back burner in favor of the newcomers, Winnie and Ethan.

Oh geez, the only thing worse for me than Sonny and Carly is Sonny and two Carlys.

Hey I have an idea! Why don't they bring Tamara Braun on as Caren and Jennifer Bransford as Coco, and Sonny can really go to town! Sonny and his 4 Cs...

So I've got a question, is it possible Liz/Lucky 5.0 is just being slowed down instead of dropped? I haven't watched this week's eps yet, but I was thinking about it. If Lucky/Rebecca hook up, I'm wondering if that'll make Liz realize she really does want to be with Lucky? Maybe TPTB realized they shouldn't rush things and maybe a Quad would be more "interesting"?

While I agree that Rebecca or whomever she turns out to be is probably on the phone with Helena, who I juts know has had a chip implanted in her brain for Helena's control, I would think that Ethan would be on secret calls with Holly, who has signed on for the month of May. Isn't it pretty certain that she is his mother. I do not think Ethan and Rebemily are connected by Ms. Cassadine. Unless, she had stolen Ethan as a child and Holly and Robert have no idea he exists. Some more poorly planned stories seeming written on the fly, day-to-day, instead of creating a back story and long-term plans for a new character. This show has been getting by the seat of Guza's pants for many years. It's time for a new regime there for sure. ABC execs, please watch your soaps! They are mostly horrible and there needs to be a demand from up on high that the soaps retain their entertainment and dramatic appeal and potential to the loyal viewers who have enjoyed these shows, for many of them, their whole lives. Quality control must be asserted here in Port Charles and Pine Valley. Llanview is really good right now but please promote it the way it deserves to be. Remember when during sweeps months, the networks would take out full page ads in TV Guide for the hot story running at the time. That was promotion. Oh! And remember when commercials ran for the soaps during prime time hours and not just while they are on or during the am or afternoon programming. Gh, though, is a hot mess right now and they need to "FIX IT!" before they star promoting anything going on there.

I have a 9 month old and my pediatrician gave me a questionaire at each visit, there are about six in the first six months and he suspected I had a mild case of PPD and gave me a list of therapist. I was taken back a bit but I was feeling sad and overwhelmed in those first months. I missed work which made me feel guilty but I also considered staying home which made me worry about finances. I agree with Perkie regarding Patrick, my partner was incredibly supportive and I would not have gotten through it without him. I don't like the story as written. This is my second child, I did not have these feelings with the first and I think this topic is important. Mr. Guza is not concerned about the valuble lesson that is lost in this attempt. The storyline could bring Robin and Patrick closer and hey remember Lanie, where is she in all this. Robin discussing her feelings would be a relief to women out there who are dealing with these feelings.

I bet Claudia will get pregnant by Sonny before he finds out about her being responsible for Michael's shooting. She'll probably lose the baby and have to fake it to keep Sonny in typical soap fashion.

Why do the writers hate Lucky so much? Greg Vaughan is such an appealing actor, but they give him crap all the time. Lucky would not take that crap from Tracy and get pick-pocketed at the same time.

Regan I agree they write Lucky like hes the stupidest person in the world. I'm a cop and have been for years but i have no idea when i'm being pick pocketed.I was never a sam fan but she seems to be less annoying these days. But never as good as Liason! Robins PPD i liked it at first but now it seems to be dragging on , and she has PPD so she left her baby in Kellys? odd

Omg if Claudia gets pregnant...ickkkk. That poor child. Why are they dead set on shoving Claudia down our throats?? And why are the dead set on redeeming her?? Uggghhh. It makes me sick.

I love Sarah and really blame none of this Claudia mess on her but I would imagine she doesn't come cheap. So the brass' attempt at redeeming the character COULD be TPTB trying to protect it's investment.

Okay, that makes sense. I can understand TPTB wanting to keep SJB around. I just can't stand Claudia lol. Although, Sarah is absolutely brillant in that role.

Tony Geary better not be pushing for Ethan to be Luke and Holly's son. It would be a huge rewrite and it would ruin the legacies of Luke & Laura and Robert & Holly.

I think Helena will be involved with both Rebecca and Ethan. I'm guessing Helena was the one who stole Ethan from Holly when she was in a coma. Helena hated Robert Scorpio and what better way to get back at him than to steal his son.

We don't need any more children coming back from their swampy graves to run down half-brothers or previously thought to be aborted fetus' coming back to be organ donors to their comatose sisters. Holly miscarried Luke's child. Let's keep it that way!

I think Ethan had more potential as Jax's kid. After all this time, Jax still doesn't have any biological kids. Ethan could have been the baby Miranda gave up.

SCOOP: Is Robin creatng a new identity? It looks like when she hits that out of town bar she comes up with a new identity.

Will Winnie destroy the evidence? Alexis saves the day as Spin comes in to help Winnie hack into Rayner's files but the Agent comes back and Alexis is SPOILED to cover for the hackers.

SOW has three upcoming airdates for Ric! That's a switch.

The problem isnt the redemption stories of Sam and Claudia, the problem is that the stupid a$$ writers wrote them into such a corner in the first place. If these are 2 of your 4 leads, why on earth would they write them into the black hole of hurting a child? The Sam story came totally out of left field and the Claudia story - I will just say if this is what they were going to do they should have a. shown her in more of a panic over Johnny's safety (maybe the hit could have even happened while Sonny was holding Johnny) and b. shown her visiting michael all this time instead of writing it in at the last minute as some sort of "twist"

I think I have to research PPD because I think the writer's are screwing Robin up or am I mistaken

Does anyone know if these are actual symptoms of PPD?

Thanks for the extensive write-up.

Well I can't say I'm a bit surprised about the Carlyx2+Sonny storyline - that is all this show knows. I hate it, I've never liked Sonny with this Carly or that. And, sure sprinkle a little Ric in there, but it will be just that, a little, so don't get too excited. And, Jax will yet again become - another "supporting" actor for the mighty precious few.

I really, really have grown to dislike this show with a passion. If it were not for the few appearances by the one character you never even mentioned, Kate, I would be so done and never look back. I will not be surprised if that day is not sooner rather than later and at this point, good riddance.

There honestly isn't much to mention about Kate. All the SCOOP on her is the same it's been for months. The only real NEW news is that IF Kate is written out, she MAY take all her secrets with her or she MAY take the opportunity to wreck everyone's lives before she leaves. I like Megan, it sucks how they've written her character.

I just lost a big post about ABC daytime using GH as a test for freeing up airtime for cheaper --in cost and quality-- programming. As stupid and boring as the show has become I'd say ABC is well on its way to getting to cancel some of their soaps due to viewer desertion.

Re: Ethan. He's a con man, a grifter. Anything he says must be regarded as a lie until proven otherway. He and Holly could be pulling this job together. In cahoots! Holly is not above pulling a big job in PC.

Re: Helena. Bring her on. She makes things interesting when handled with respect by the idiots in charge. I really find the "Mad Granny" aspect to be just too too. Won't Luke be happy to see her again? Tracy won't be too happy either since their last association involved a lot of money not arriving where it was supposed to. I do hope she is NOT involved in Rebecca Shaw's presence in PC. Let Rebecca be one of Jax's business tactics to sucker Nicholas. Or, she could very well be a plant by Jerry Jax.

Re: Sonny and Claudia. The bomb should have gone off. I don't want any story at all about either of these two.

Where is Dante? Olivia is still in town but her son has not showed up to check out what his Mama is doing in this new job she has away from Bensonhurst.

Poor Spinelli. Can anyone as internet savy as he be so naive? Especially after his work for Alcazar and for Jason? I'd much rather have a storyline about Spin's family than have to FF through the Skank Squad plus brother Johnny.
