General Hospital: Perkie’s Observations


Spinelli and Matt attend Maxie’s arraignment. Alexis is still trying to talk some sense into her. Patrick shows up. Maxie wonders if he hates her for what happened at the funeral. She yells at him to tell everyone what a horrible person she is for causing the gas leak. Patrick says he’s there because it was an accident. While he wants to blame someone, he can’t and says she shouldn’t blame herself either.

Sam’s letting Jason know that she’s at Ferncliff to see Heather. Jason says he’s keeping busy with Sonny’s case and McBain. He wonders if Sam thinks Sonny is guilty. She just wants him to be innocent. Heather is brought in so Jason makes her promise to let it go if she doesn’t get any information.

In the afterglow, Steven mentions his mother. Olivia says he’s never talked about it before. Steve explains his past. He shares how Heather has been in and out of mental institutes. He feels bad that he hasn’t reached out to her lately. Olivia assures him that he hasn’t done anything wrong. Steve takes a photo of his mother out of his wallet and studies it.

John McBain shows up at Anna’s hotel room and she’s happy to see him. Turns out she was on loan to the FBI while he was there. The two catch up on old times. John offers her his condolences for Robin. John admits he wants something from her. She realizes it’s about Sonny.

Starr wakes up on Michael’s couch and thanks him for his hospitality. She apologizes for putting him in an awkward position with Sonny. She offers to make him breakfast. Michael asks about McBain and his history with Sonny. Starr says John just wants justice. Michael asks if she’ll go home after the trial. Starr isn’t sure, since she no longer has family there. They talk about breakfast and Starr starts to cry. Michael understands being blindsided by the feelings

Heather says she knows who Sam is and mentions baby Lila. Sam says she’s here about another baby and wants heather’s help in filing the blanks about the day Jason was born. Heather wants to know what’s in it for her. Heather says she wants to reunite with Steven.

Patrick says Maxie isn’t a horrible person and that Robin loved her like the sister she never had. Maxie says she didn’t deserve Robin’s friendship and that he should hate her. Patrick says he has to look forward at what he has, a daughter, a brother and father. After Patrick leaves, Maxie appears to agree with Alexis’s decision to plead not guilty. Matt thanks Patrick for being nice to Maxie. Patrick says Maxie shouldn’t blame herself and he is thankful to have Matt in his life.

McBain complains to Anna that Sonny is running Port Charles into the ground. She says Sonny was important to Robin. John says Sonny had motive to shoot out the tires. He explains his connection to Starr and Cole. Anna says the evidence is all circumstantial and that John isn’t detached. John says it won’t be over after what Sonny took from him. Anna asks why the grudge. John says Sonny killed his sister.

Spinelli goes to Jason and mentions Maxie’s plight. Jason says it wasn’t Maxie’s fault, but understands her blaming herself as he did. Spin mentions Lisa’s murder. Jason doesn’t believe Maxie capable. However, they although both agree she might know something and that’s why she turned to Anthony for help. Jason tells Spin to make Maxie understand that many factors would have altered the outcome in the lab that day. Spin needs to find the real killer to exonerate Maxie. Spin turns it back on Jason and says he needs to find the real shooter to clear Sonny.

The judge comes in and after giving his rules, asks how Maxie will plead. Alexis stands to say not guilty, but Maxie interrupts and says guilty on all charges.

Jason shows up at Michael’s door while Starr is there.

Sam points out that Steve is an adult and she can’t force him to speak to his mother. Heather says just to make sure that he gets this letter from her and reads it. Sam promises, and asks what Heather knows about the baby. Heather says the baby in the photo isn’t Jason.

    Oh that Heather. Not as crazy as she wants people to think.

    Not that I have anything against Stolivia, but I don’t particularly want to see that much of them. A little more icky than I care for.

    Is it just me or is it wierd to anyone else that he carries a photo his mother in his wallet?

    Interesting to see a connection between Anna and John. ANd it made sense.

    Ugh Maxie, you’re driving me insane.

    Poor Patrick. Still feeling badly for him. So wanted him and MAtt to hug it out.

    I’m spoiler free, but I’m calling it that the baby is Franco and he’s Jason’s half brother. Please don’t make him Jason’s twin because that would make him a Q and that’s not right.

    Steven’s recap of his crazy ass mother had me in stitches. Only on a soap opera would someone like Heather be allowed out of a mental facility! :party:

    Starr was rather subdued today and that’s a good thing!

    It was rather funny that Heather had her letter to Steven all ready for Sam. I smell a trap.

    I have only known Robin Mattson as Gina on Santa Barbara and then Janet Greene on AMC. She was great in both roles but I am pretty sure I have only seen her play BSC women! Boy, does she do crazy well. Still, I don’t think even her Heather Webber can make Steven Lars interesting :-/ Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll get out of Ferncliff long enough to off Olivia!

    I enjoyed the Anna/John scenes. FFWD Starr/Michael and Jason/Spinelli. After a short respite, nonsensical Spinelli has retuned to annoy endlessly.

    I thought the courtroom scenes were well acted but Maxie continuing this nonsense after what Patrick said to her…ugh…perhaps prison would be best. Umm, where was Mac? Was his absence explained?

    Why are still discussing Franco (or Lisa Niles)? He was never welcome and stayed too long. I am not even convinced he’s dead. I don’t care if he’s related to Jason or Susan. I’ll care some if he’s related to Alan but then I remember there’s not much story to tell because Alan and most of the Quartermaines are dead. Edward and Monica aren’t given much airtime. Had Jason Morgan experienced a reversion or combination with Jason Quartermaine’s personality, this investigation into his past could be more interesting.

    When did she have time to mentor John?

    Up to 1985 – a spy

    86-91 – worked as a cop, personal life too hectic to go around mentoring emo cops in other towns

    91-01 – “dead”

    01-03 – in Pine Valley

    03-12 John was in Llanview and didn’t seem to need a mentor. If he had one, it was Eeyore.

    Is there any reason for all these special ties to people from GH? Does it make someone go, “I love John now.” He has a contrived past with Sam, Sonny, and Anna, as well as a sister he NEVER mentioned before (and the way he likes to mope, he would have mentioned her). What next? Will we find out he’s Felicia’s second cousin and they’re both Aztec royalty?

    Anna’s hair still sucks.

    I’m glad to see Robin Mattson on TV again. Her reaction to learning Sam’s baby had died was a good example of what an underrated actress she is.

    John mentioned to Anna that Sonny is responsible for his sisters death, which means that his sister is not really dead and expect for her to be alive and show up soon in Port Charles.

    Interesting that Anna has no once, since Robin has died, mentioned her other dead daughter Leora.

    Get rid of that Spinelli character already!

    still not buying Starr being with Michael, no matter how much they have in common. i don’t see it.

    Finally caught up on GH. At least the pace of the show has picked up!

    Not much has changed with this regime. Guza’s unholy trinity of Jason/Carly/Sonny is still on full display. Sonny’s trying to ditch a charge while wondering whether his possession (oops I mean woman) is screwing his enemy. Gosh, we haven’t seen those stories before. Oh wait we have! Jason is as monotone and boring as ever, riding up to Sonny’s jockstrap where he nurses his brain damage away while doing Sonny’s dirty work. It’s all so 2006 GH that I think I’ve gone back in a time machine and am stuck watching a Phelps/Guza repeat. Am I in some sort of soap opera prison hell?

    I do much prefer Sam in PI mode than I do when she’s standing by her brain damaged killer man. Sam has so much potential. Hopefully, they can free her of being just another woman who rotates in killers’ orbits. But I fear we are going to revisit the “maybe I was knocked up by a serial killer who raped me instead of by the serial killer I married” story. It’s bad enough to revisit the worst of Guza…but revisiting Wolf’s most dreadfully misogynistic tale? The writers seem to be telegraphing to us (as they did with Robin’s faux death) that Jason and franco are twins. Let’s hope we get a twist in that tale!

    And speaking of killers. WOW is the canvas stuffed with them. Sonny. Jason. AZ. Johnny. Todd’s on the way. Can my beloved Heather and Tracy just team up and knock some of these pigs off? Then have Alexis (suddenly turned as feminist as her portrayer) defend them.

    No it doesn’t make sense for McBain to know Anna. But I do GET why it had to be that way. And if it means more Anna on my screen, I am all for it. More McBoring…well we know on GH you have to take the good with the bad. Only McBoring can rival Jason for the most monotone and devoid of emotion. But Finola Hughes SAVES every scene she’s in. She is by far this regime’s smartest move yet.

    Michael shirtless. We’ve seen it once. ENOUGH.

    Starr: I know you’re going to be on my screen endlessly but am so over your histrionics.

    Steve finishes screwing Boobie and his first thought is to discuss his mother. No girl I’ve ever known would have allowed him to leave that bed with his testicles intact. Soap goddesses above, even my beloved crazy Heather can’t make this couple relevant. Here’s hoping Heather is here to assist their exit from our soap screens.

    Not much has changed with GH. But stories happen faster. The stupid often flies by so fast I forget about it. And at least Anna’s here. Gotta hold onto the good. And I can’t wait to see Heather do her damage. Hopefully it’s directed at GH’s most sexist pigs. Women need to fight back on GH. Women need to be allowed to be just as bad as the boys.

    I didn’t watch GH when Heather/Robin Mattson was on the show, but I know her from AMC and can’t wait to see more of her. She does crazy better than almost anyone!

    [quote=Perkie]Not that I have anything against Stolivia, but I don’t particularly want to see that much of them. A little more icky than I care for. Is it just me or is it wierd to anyone else that he carries a photo his mother in his wallet?[/quote]

    Icky…a perfect word for this scene. I’m a rare viewer that liked Olivia because I like the actress, but I’m pretty tired of her and the way she’s being written now. I do like Steve and hope that he can get a really juicy storyline…and the Memphis crap isn’t it!

    [quote=Perkie]Interesting to see a connection between Anna and John. ANd it made sense.[/quote]

    I enjoyed the scene between these two and it did make sense. I realize TPTB are manufacturing a history for them, but it could be a more interesting story than what we’ve been enduring with all the Sonny/Jason/Mob stuff.

    [quote=Perkie]Poor Patrick. Still feeling badly for him. So wanted him and MAtt to hug it out.[/quote]

    What a wonderfully understated performance Patrick/Jason Thompson gave. I’m so happy he told Maxie what he did…too bad it fell on deaf ears. I’m so over the histrionics with Maxie. Nobody would carry on this charade for this long.

    The show is showing some signs of improvement, but it still has a long way to go!!

    LOVED the return of Heather Grant Webber!!!! Robin Mattson is awesome. Can’t wait to see how this storyline plays out.

    Didn’t get the timeline that would put Anna and John McBain in the same place either if he was on OLTL from 2003 to 2012. But anyway it’s always great to see Anna!
    And we found out that John holds Sonny responsible for the death of his sister.^^

    I still don’t like Starr. I can’t make myself liking this actress … odd enough, I like Starr and Michael together though. LOL

    Don’t really like this Maxie story. We should finally be done with everything involving Lisa Niles. -.-

    Love this part of your post. I just vomit Olivia. She is the opposite of a “classy lady” and always seems so fake. And her “knows-it-all” style is just reminding me of her awful spawn each time she unfortunately opens her big mouth. Her couple with Steve is so unattractive and I really hope that Heather is going to reduce her to ashes. And Steve is really a douche. Speaking of his mom in the immediate afterglow… No wonder I don’t see any support for this couple anywhere. There are just boring, boring, boring… And not even slightly hot…

    Highlight of the show was of course Mc Bain and Anna. I don’t get why I couldn’t stand Mc Bain on OLTL and I kind of love him on GH. Oh I get it, it is because he is on GH to take down Sonny and I LOATHE Sonny Corinthos and all his spawns. So Team John. Hoping that he will be the one succeeding in putting Sonny behind bars. It would be more than time.

    Don’t care about Starr and Micheal.

    I have watched Sam/Heather only because of Robin Mattson.
    Before the “I am Jaiiiisoooon’s WIFE” possessivity trip of Sam and her disgusting behavior towards Patrick I used to like Sam a lot.
    I can’t stand her now that she has married Jason and I found the PI investigation to NYC ridiculous. And I am certainly NOT interested in any history tying Jason and Franco by a brotherly bond.
    So as soon as Heather won’t be in anymore, I will FF every Jasam scene discussing how bright Sam is and diving us again into the “Franco nightmare/rape/revenge pool”.

    I am starting to wish that it will be Franco’s child just to see how moronic Jason’s reaction is going to be and hoping that Sam will dump his sorry ass and will love her kid anyway even if it is not a spawn of her own mob god. That would redeem Sam to me to see her put her unborn child before Jason even if it is Franco’s. But considering what Sam was saying before she got the test results, I doubt it will happen and that she will be able to put ANYONE even her own flesh and blood before her precious Jaiiisson… :Sp

    Why did the post before Soapfan16’s disappeared? It was well written! Was it because it alluded to LLC and her face? Weird…

If i got my wish,Connie & Lulu would team up and kill Sonny and frame Carly for his murder.I at the very least want to see Connie pull a “Loraina Bobbit” and cut Sonny’s “little member” off so that we willnever be subjected to seeing Sonny do a love scene again!LOL! I also would love it if Heather poisoned BOTH Olivia & Dante to death.

    I for one liked the Anna/John connection. Yes, it makes sense that they had a brief history through the WSB/ FBI pipeline, I believe they mentioned as much so I don’t think the backstory was that contrived.

    Love every scene that JT is in. Not wure if it’s the writing, the direction or what, but he seems to have come into his own these past few weeks and is standing out like gold in a bucket of rocks.

    Please let Maxie either go to jail or Shadybrook, and come back as Kirsten Storms. This actress is just not doing it for me, not her fault really, I just can’t believe in JL’s performance when she had little or no screen time with Robin and if I am not mistaken, wasn’t there for the Lisa Niles murder.

    If there was a purpose, or if Anna’s history wasn’t so detailed, I would agree, but she was rarely, if ever, in a position in the last several decades to know him well enough to have this deep relationship.

    Beyond this, I just don’t see why they need to be longstanding pals. Can’t he just say he’s heard of her, and they bond? Or is it too much for the show to actually build relationships, instead of manufacture them, like inventing a sister no one had ever heard of in 9 years, even when John’s own mother and brother were on the show.

    The sister angle is way out there, I watched McBain on OLTL and if he would’ve had a sister that died, then he would’ve been brooding about it the entire time, just like with his dad and his Caitlyn.

    That being said, as I was sitting here watching John and Anna, I was wishing ME had come on this show years ago, to be a love interest for both Robin and Sam. I can see he has chemistry with KeMo, but I think he would’ve had good chemistry with KMc too. A quadrangle between Robin/Patrick/Sam/McBain would’ve been nice and would’ve been easier to watch than Jason eating up the canvas.

    FH is such a great actress. I hope TPTB realize what a gem they have in her and keep her on longer than expected. I wonder how long it will take Luke to start spying on Anna and McBain and report back to Sonny?

    I love RM, and hope her part as the villain doesn’t get written too cartoonish on us. She plays crazy well, but I don’t want her to be written as over the top.

    I’ve preferred Sam anywhere away from Jason for years now, since he broke up with her for her “own” good while she was laying in her hospital bed recovering, so I was happy to see her doing something besides wringing her hands over him and bringing him coffee and food.

    My guess is they let Heather out of Ferncliff so they can have the bed for Maxie. LOL!

    The best part of this episode? No Sonny, Kate or Carly.

    Tuesday…might get back to a couple of “dropped” days…but I’ll go with what I know…

    Bringing her into court early (can they do that?), seems like a last ditch effort that Alexis and Matt have orchestrated to get her to see reason. Reason-not a word to use when talking about Maxie. “Everyone’s said what they need to say.” “Not quite.” You’d think Patrick would be the ultimate voice of reason, being the one to absolve her. “I look at what I have…I’m
    not gonna blame you. Robin wouldn’t…You gotta do the same.” At that
    moment, you see a glimmer that she might go for it, but that hanging threat from Papa Z is Damocles’ sword over her head. Right on cue, she talks past Alexis “Not guilty.” and convicts herself. If it wasn’t for JT’s Patrick, sincere and caring for his wife’s cousin, I would’ve zipped through a lot of this. JL has repetitive material that just taxes my patience. I did like her outfit, loved the cardigan…

    I so appreciate love scenes when beautifully lit and montaged, even ones which have dialogue interspersed that advances story. If it’s done smartly. Olivia and Steve, going from release to full on conversation about his mother was “off the wall”. Maybe he figured he’d ‘fess up so as not to get caught covering up something else in his past. Knowing Olivia, she’ll probably get tangled up in whatever comes down the pike with Heather. I really like LLo as an actress but her character as written is
    standing on my last nerve. Lately, I’m thinking I wouldn’t miss her if she vacated my screen…

    Now that she’s got “answers” in her sights, you know that Sam’s not gonna let go of this bear. The bear being Heather Webber. KM is a solid veteran, but RM’s “presence” is huge. (That’s not a knock on KM. She’s been quite good through this angst.) Maybe it’s the fact that RM is “new” and what’s being given to her allows her to play crazy and conniving, at the same time her “story” is going to affect a fair amount of people. I got chills when she had no real reaction to Sam revealing that Lila was stillborn. Cold. The conversation across the table-watching her take inventory of Sam, calculating, measuring the younger woman’s response, flicking the pictures back at her: “For starters, this baby ain’t Jason Morgan.” You can bet Sam wasn’t prepared to bargain with this one, let alone look like she’s about to be steam rolled…

    I really love how BA can work with anybody. I enjoy the “brother” vibe I get watching him with SBu even when he’s playing “grasshopper” to his “Master”. In this case, Jason has it right about Maxie: “Find the real killer…she’s off the hook.” “Whether she likes it or not.” Well, duh! :~ Of course, Spinelli turns it around on him about the bully’s case. Double duh! :~ You know what? I want Spinelli to clear Maxie. And I’d rather the enforcer not be the one to figure out who shot Papa Z’s tires…

    We got the obligatory shirtless scene so Starr knows ahead of time what she can look forward to. Since they’re going this way, I’d suggest keeping both fully clothed and let’s see if RC can get me to to want these two together. I did see a flash of good reaction from KA during the breakfast sequence when Jr. innocently asks if she cooks often. “…when you have a kid…(Sounding like “What a silly question.”), then “…when you’ve had a kid…” The switch from a light hearted reply to the realization that her daughter is no longer there was an excellent piece of facial change that told me what she felt at that point. Jr.’s killing Claudia paralleling Cole’s crime will be an obvious tie in for further “bonding” purposes.
    When they get around to it. Jason’s arrival? Hmm. To hide Starr or not to hide Starr. That is the question…Yes, I know it’s not Shakespeare… ;)

    The snippets I know about McBain (from Sassy’sDreams-Thank you from a previous post awhile back.), didn’t say anything about a sister. I’ll forgive them for taking story telling license, especially if it gives him more reason to A) Work with Anna and B) Get the bully off canvas. I get a “Horatio Caine/David Caruso/CSI:Miami” gloss from ME. With FH he seems more animated even with the understated delivery. When she dithers on helping him, “…my daughter was…close with him…”, he goes after her sense of “She’d want you to do what’s right.”, linking the law and order aspect that Anna has upheld for so long. The sudden urgency followed by a tone of intense regret for not nailing the bully sooner had me thinking of the initial zeal of DZ’s D when he was undercover as Dominic Perelli. Which is how he should have stayed being written. Before the reveal of who his father was. And got squishy about it. But that’s me. (Hoping for a return to that mode in some bigger capacity.) Maybe the fact that Anna gets the reason for the grudge out of McBain, “He killed my sister.”, will speed the bully’s demise. A girl can dream…

    Till our next chat…enjoy your day, all…

    It is my understanding that the actors are all working their minimums since FV is a stickler for staying on budget. Of course, SBu, MB, LW and KM probably all have outrageous minimums in their contracts. At least having Dante on seven days a week has finally stopped!

    I don’t remember McBain ever having mentioned a sister who died while on OLTL. John’s father a cop died leaving behind his wife and two young sons!

    This whole thing Eh…

    Lot of GH history lessons for those who can’t get to wikipedia…
    but I enjoy the dialog about Anna’s superspy days instead of having her swinging from the ceiling, or a groupie chasing a Noah Drake Look-a-like rock star although I liked Eli Love I didn’t like how they wrote her (& him) in that story. The John connection Eh…why is Anna staying with Luke in a hotel?

    Star & Michael have zero chemistry for me I thought Star is rich why is she plopped in Michael’s apartment dissing his dad… I’m sorry but the acting is off for me for both of these characters I know Ron wants them together (it ain’t hard to figure that out) put they have zero charisma for me.

    Maxi please give me a break please…

    Spinelli catches Jason up on other peoples problems this has to be his quickest recovery time ever from a life threatening neurosurgery.

    Patrick no longer blames Jason gee that was quick! I guess Patrick will go to the penthouse and pay homage to the great Mr. Morgan.

    for me Heather Webber outacted Mrs. Morgan take a drink every time my husband is said in dialog (for quite a while its been a bit much)..Hey scriptwriters, I got it he’s her husband.

    The scene reminded me of when Jody Foster’s character went to see Hannibal (Silence of the Lambs) the first time for some reason I could visualize Heather lurking & squinting behind pexiglass.

    I enjoyed most of this hour but three things really bothered me…

    1) Why was Mac, Maxie’s father not at her arraignment?

    2) Who carries a picture of their crazy mother in their wallet?

    3) I was a OLTL viewer and I don’t remember John ever having a sister. A brother yes, but no sister. So they’re altering history to suit the story I guess.

    Still don’t enjoy JL as Maxie! Her high-pitched screaming gives me a headache. I really miss KS!!

    Really enjoyed the Anna and John scenes.

    Loved Sam, Patrick and Spinelli!

    You know my biggest WTF about that was…Sam introduced herself as Sam McCall…I understand that is what her PI Firm is known as but she wasn’t there as anything other than Sam Morgan. I have never introduced myself to a complete stranger with my maiden name.

    But hot damn did she remind us who she was after that.

    I did laugh a little when Heather mentioned about Sam was pregnant with Lila and how it was killing Edward.

    Spinelli is back to annoying me…Did he honestly think that Patrick was going to rip Maxie a new one. I so wanted Matt to smack him in the head. But then to just rush into the courtroom this man has not grown in all his years on this show.

    Oh Maxie…it just has to be all about you. It’s your pain, it’s your fault, it’s you you you. OMFG shut up…enough.

    Patrick did it again for and the moment shared between Matt and Patrick was perfection.

    John McBain….LOVE YOU SO FREAKING MUCH!!!!!

    Raven to be clear, heather told sam that naming the baby Lila was flaunting edwards loss while she (heather) was trying to comfort him. Reading your post it sounds like heather was suggesting that edward would be disgusted by the idea of sam naming her child after lila, when she was saying more that edward was so distraught at his loss, any reminder of lila would be painful. Plus Im not sure psycho heather would know anything about what edward would have liked or not liked.

    Im with everyone that thought the whole steven carries heathers picture around very very icky.

    I loved the maxie/patrick stuff. I could have done without matt and spin still fussing and fighting. Yeah JL is no KS, but it could be so so much worse. I dont mind JL. At least they didnt recast with farah fath.

    Im less bothered by john mcbains new sibling than I am by anna forgetting leora. When Anna asked liz questions about getting over the loss of a child I was practically screaming YOU ALREADY KNOW, YOU LOST LEORA. At least the new sister potentially forwards the story (meaning anna could have bonded with liz without the writers erasing leora and she could have grieved robin without erasing leora where johns sister at least sets up some conflict potentially), though I think they really should avoid this monkeying with various characters history.

    Swan I agree with your take on sam/heather. I think RM had more to play with and def. carried the scene, though I liked both. the reaction to lila being stillborn was so damn cold, that would have thrown me too. Heather always had that way about her, finding a way to say something chilling even without saying much.

    I wonder if FH went to the writers and reminded them that her character spent a couple of years on AMC and that they needed to tweak the script about losing a child while Anna was talking to Liz/RH?

    In the 21st Century lots of young women retain their own last name as opposed to taking their husband’s last name. One doesn’t just automatically get the husband’s last name upon marrying. This has been going on for quite awhile.She is Sam McCall. Never sam morgan.

    [quote=Carol2][quote=sweetiepie]I for one liked the Anna/John connection. Yes, it makes sense that they had a brief history through the WSB/ FBI pipeline, I believe they mentioned as much so I don’t think the backstory was that contrived.
    [/quote]

    If there was a purpose, or if Anna’s history wasn’t so detailed, I would agree, but she was rarely, if ever, in a position in the last several decades to know him well enough to have this deep relationship.

    Beyond this, I just don’t see why they need to be longstanding pals. Can’t he just say he’s heard of her, and they bond? Or is it too much for the show to actually build relationships, instead of manufacture them, like inventing a sister no one had ever heard of in 9 years, even when John’s own mother and brother were on the show.[/quote]

    I agree it wasn’t need he could have just heard about her through channels. I makes no sense at all and there is no way she could have trained him when she was in spy mode she was overseas and then she was suppose to be an art theif so she no longer had any official dealings with the WSB and especially the FBI when she started on the show we saw her every moments and if she was mentoring anyone it would be Frisco.

    Stop with these forced associations, it is just lazy writing. Anna and John didn’t need to have known each in the past to work with each other in the present.

    I’m not even going to start with John having a sister Killed by Sonny

    I think Edward would have hated it if Sam had named her baby Lila, but not because it was Sam’s baby. Edward hates Sonny more than anyone else and would not have wanted Sonny’s daughter to be named Lila, even if Jason had a part in raising her.

    Most people get into a marriage with high and full spirits. They know fully well what they are getting into and accept this with an open heart. While you may say that there is a lot of hype in marriages especially on the days leading up to the wedding day, it can get a bit difficult to maintain this momentum.http://www.nanchdrp.com page

    There are many sad stories told about marriages dissolving because they had trouble maintaining the lives they had imagined they would have with each other. But everyday can’t be a honeymoon. While there are indeed good marriages, there are also partners who eventually lose the heat.

    Without questioning the devotion and love one partner feels for the other and vice versa, a couple may find their marriage at times to be monotonous and in a humdrum.
