General Hospital Spoilers!

Here’s the Scoop! 04.23.09

I mentioned Sonny getting a little too concerned about Carly’s pregnancy. Jax has some issues with it and what has Sonny’s panties in such a bunch? Doesn’t he have his own expectant wife to worry about? Apparently Sonny finds out about Carly’s “condition” and it doesn’t sit well with her former spouse. Will Jax and Sonny duke it out? Are some “classic” Jason, Carly and Sonny scenes coming are way? Maybe. My roomie brought up a great point yesterday. Why is this “condition” cause for such concern? Wasn’t Carly pregnant last year with no mention of said “condition?” Now, I fully admit my GH watching is not as intense as it once was –that’s what happens when I’m bored to sleep while watching – so I may have missed the explanation. Fill me in on what I may have missed.

I’m not a huge fan of secrets. Some are understandable and soap opera basics but when there are far too many secrets on one show they all seem to get lost in the shuffle. Jax SHOULDN’T be in the dark about Carly’s “condition” for too long. He MAY even find out next week that his wife is suffering from a potentially life threatening complication to her pregnancy. Thank you to whoever made the decision to let that cat out of the bag. Can we also let a few more out while we’re at it?

Murder Mystery… It’s been out there and is SUPPOSED to involve the Scorpio-Drakes to some degree. What do Scrubs have to do with a murder mystery? Isn’t that more of a mob thing? RUMORS seem to suggest that Robin and Patrick MAY be covering for whomever the suspect or potential suspect is. COULD this be a murder mystery within the halls of General Hospital? We’ve seen some good ones in the past that involved the hospital.

Intervention… After the save from the stroller coaster ride Patrick learns Robin has ditched her meds. He’ll organize an intervention to get through to his wife. This SHOULD be when Robin throws that mommy issue dig Maxie’s way. Elizabeth, Matt, Maxie, Kelly Lee, Mac and Robin’s therapist are all said to be there.

Is Matt moving in? There has been TALK that Matt is moving in with his big brother Patrick while Robin seeks treatment for her Postpartum Depression. Two men and a baby? We all know how Guza loves to rip off movies. Can the Drake boys handle a little baby?

LL2 Re-do… I’ve been pretty honest about how I feel about this one. I’m sure most think it’s because of my Liason love. It’s not, at least not entirely. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I liked it when they hooked Greg Vaughan’s Lucky up with Elizabeth after her return from having Cameron. The scenes were sweet and almost reminiscent of the original LL2, almost. This time around, it’s not tried and true for me it’s tried and tried out. Especially when we sat through the pair declaring that they both needed to move on and stay committed parents to the boys after the toxic ball crap. Now we’re supposed to believe that their love deserves yet another chance? It’s stale and it’s boring and I just don’t want to see it.

Dante… If and when this boy hits town there are RUMORS that what Olivia tried to keep him away from is what he’s mixed up in. The mob. I’m with Jamey to a certain degree. The mob has always had its place in Port Chuck and I realize that with Dante being a Corinthos, the mob connection is inevitable. HOWEVER, can we not have him as this hoodlum coming to town despite the stories his mother’s been telling us? I could almost get on board if Olivia had mentioned that despite her keeping Dante away from his father the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. RUMORS have long said that Dante and Michael will be at odds and those RUMORS seem to still be holding true – well as true as RUMORS can be- as it looks like the brothers won’t be feeling so brotherly.
CRAZY and RANDOM RUMORS… Nikolas and NotEmily… Still seeing TALK that the pair does the deed. There’s also that Elizabeth – Nikolas kiss and Nik not liking what he sees between Lucky and Rebecca. Is Rebecca left alone in the haunted castle? More mysterious Rebecca Shaw phone calls. Ethan and Luke… Will Ethan agree to the DNA test? Claudia wants to know if her hubby is still holding a torch for his ex and no it’s not Kate. Where the hell is Kate these days? Maxie tries to seduce Spinelli. Olivia has a warning for Claudia. Does Jax have an offer for Claudia?

    Ethan is a con man, every character on the show knows he’s a con man. So telling a con man you’re going to investigate him and do a DNA test on the con man, once you do that DNA test, what do you think a con man would do…..?

    I’m assuming Michael wakes up from the surgery but he’s been moving his hand. There were RUMORS that Jax MAY be feeling Michael’s rath as well. In terms of classic scenes I meant the dynamic between the trio that we used to see during the PH neighbor days.

    NO LL2 Re-do, I so do not want to see this. Just to add my 2 cents about your Liason post yesterday. Isn’t it great that Liason can greet fans in public, but TPTB can’t fathom that we actually want to see them as a couple on our soap |(

    Also, I read on another site that SB signed some kind of temporary deal for 12 months.

    Lord help us… the apple most definitely does not fall far from the tree. REPORTS about Dante’s casting are saying that the script invovles Dante sleeping with someone close to Sonny. Remember my caution…. sometimes audition scripts are slightly altered old scripts.

    There has been some CHATTER about Steve’s contract talks. I mentioned it a couple days back. He may have signed a new deal that gives him some extra time off upfront similiar to Alicia Minshew’s deal with AMC. They would have to pen a story explaining his absence to facilitate that. We will see. Burton has said an announcement will be made by June.

    Lets see….

    First thanks Regan!

    Now, more Matt! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Yes my matt fanboyism will keep going and hey it seems like Guza is starting to actually use him so YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

    LnL2 — I didn’t see them the first go around, or any other go around, but i LOVED their scenes late last year when they were doing taxes and playing video games, they were soooooooo cute and I could really go for a LnL2 redo if it means an actual real romantic relationship on GH *Gasp*

    I have no faith in the murder mystery being anything even remotely decent, so i am not getting my hopes up just yet lol, and I dont really care about Dante, just let Tom P go do the end of Guiding Light (Because seriously J need to come home, i am still pissed he isn’t home while his mom is going threw everything) and then he can come back and be Dante :)

    Also just for the heck of it *insert ReCast Ethan rant here*

    …okay I actually have a Ethan related question, could Ethan in anyway be remotely related (even if it is by adoption or something) to Brody Lovett on OLTL? I just find it odd that two soaps in the same universe can create two new characters and give them both the same last name and there not be an actual connection.

    If thats the case then I think any chance for JaSam might be dead. I cant see them starting them in June and then having Steve take two months off in September. That would leave her in limbo all that time.

    Ethan… I thought the same thing -how strange it is to have two abc’ers with Lovett for a last name- but, they had a Barrett on GH and never mentioned that he shared the same last name of one of their best known characters.

    SBurton… IF he is getting time off up front, yest that would put a wrinkle in the JaSam plans. But Kelly’s show also put a wrinkle in their plans.

    let’s wait and see about Steve contract..
    Personally I don’t want to see less Jason…
    and I don’t think TPTB want less Jason…

    Please let it be true and Michele will be mad at Jax!!!!!!!!!!!
    i kind of hoping that will have the trio come back it’s been a long time since we saw Carly Jason Sonny scenes , they are like family don’t they???????????

    I am so tired of GH. There is no balance. TPTB just do not know how to do it. They have managed to make me dislike characters I enjoy and not for a storyline purpose, simply due to overuse, and poor plots. It seems like all that is ahead is summer story of Sonny’s children and stepchildren.

    I am getting too old for this. There are good love stories to be had just not on GH. To be honest if Robin and Patrick and Spinelli and Maxi are what the best they can do, I cannot see watching this summer.

    Simply put, I am bored. Give me Diane, Alexis, Elizabeth, Sam and some older men or some younger men, just some different men for sure. That would ensure summer watching.

    “SBurton… IF he is getting time off up front, yest that would put a wrinkle in the JaSam plans. But Kelly’s show also put a wrinkle in their plans.”

    A higher power is saying Sam does not belong with Jason. It could be interpreted that the universe is a Liason fan. Don’t mess with the universe!

    yeah where the hell is kate? This is what really irks me. Sonny loves kate and we saw how deep it was. But since toxic balls, sonny has literally forgot this love. I find it so insulting. Sonny should be pining for kate. He has NO feelings for olivia and should never! What have the Skate fans and Kate fans done to deserve this insult? Reagan, can you enlighten me on why Guza seems to have something against Megan and Skate fans? Do they really think we will forget or even accept this faux Bensonhurst stuff with Olivia? Can you please comment as everyday I get more and more infuriated as a fan of SKate!!!

    IF it’s similar to Minshew’s deal, it would be months off, Kendall was in a coma for awhile. 

    Programming Note: Hope you’re all still reading. NO SCOOPS tomorrow. I had something come up and will not be near a computer. Keep the comments coming, dish to each other what you hear and see. Be me for the day! I’ll try to check in tomorrow and see how it’s going. 

    Have a great weekend!

    I want to see less MOB. If that means less Jason then so be it. If it means no Sonny and the total destruction of Claudia, then BRING IT ON!!!!!!!

    Micheal gets shot by a bullet meant for Sonny during a hit paid for by Sonny’s new wife. Sonny talks Jason into taking over the mob for him so HE can have a real life. But now Sonny is back in charge, Michael is waking up, the Feds have once again been acting like godless bullies as well as ineffective boobs, and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has changed. The entire last year was a waste.

    GH has too many actors and too many stories that aren’t thought out, let alone carried out to their completion.

    GH mediocrity at its absolute best!!!!!

    Yet it has moments of greatness: Monica’s breast cancer story; Luke’s heart attack; the attempt to do the PPD story; Maxie’s salvation because of Georgie’s death; Spinelli’s gentle understanding of Maxie and her torment. Notice there are no MOB moments here. No Sonny, no Jason, NO CLAUDIA, no Ric being the psycho needy brother. No screeching Lulu. Tracy Quartermaine who loves Luke and understands him as no one else can. Tracy who is a strong intelligent woman even if her money were to disappear. Helena Cassidine who could very well be a caricature but who is saved from that by the superb performance of the actress playing her. Yep, there is greatness in GH. You just have to dig through a miserable amount of offal and mob-dung to find it.

    What I want to know is why doesn’t Jason ever even think or talk about Jake anymore? He was so torn up about having a child when Elizabeth was pregnant. Then all he wanted was to be a father. Granted, Michael’s shooting made him realize that being a mobster wouldn’t make him good father material, but it would be nice to see him pull out that picture of Jake and Liz once in a while. How about watching them in the park or at Kelly’s? I am so disgusted that they took a really romantic pairing and split them apart for nothing. There is no romance on this show at all!
