Nothing says soaps like deciding to dump the guy, just to have him show up bleeding on your doorstep. I love Connie’s sheer disdain of all things Sonny and how she talks to him like he’s an idiot. I love that it looks like Carly didn’t buy the story and am really hoping Johnny tells her the truth. Alexis claimed that the certificate was legal, but if Connie is no longer operating legally as Connie, but as Katherine Howard, would she be able to get married under the name Constanza Falconeri.

Log in to Reply blackjack21 October 4, 2012 i agree with Perkie – soaptastic! huge shout out to the wardrobe department – i loved monica’s and tracy’s outfits. loved all the bold colors of the wedding guests and would be guests. anyone else see sam and liz’s future relationship in the monica/tracy scenes? love the dynamics. thrilled the sam/liz scenes were quiet – no shrieking. although a part of me would have been ok sam hitting liz in the gut – but i’m trying to be mature laughed that john showed up at jason’s with his shirt still open – the money triangle: sonny/jason/john – ha! loved the shot of sonny staring at kate with johnny and carly in the background. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 October 4, 2012 Sam/Elizabeth were gold. Their conversation played with so much history. It was great to watch. I also love that in the end Liz didn’t keep up the lie for too long and came clean on her own. I hoped Joe would die. As soon as it was shown that he was the one being shot, I hoped he died and we would be done with his STUPID revenge plot against Sonny. Well at least I really start to enjoy Kristina and Trey out of this. They have potential. If I were Carly I wouldn’t even wait for another explanation from Johnny. I’d tell him that I know he was lying and leave anyway. Why still bother??? He’s been keeping these secrets for months. He murdered three people. And now all this with Connie … what does he still expect from Carly? I loved Starr slapping Connie!!!! Great moment and giving her facts – so understandable. And yeah, couldn’t John at least button up his shirt after getting away from Sam??? lol Monica and Tracy’s conversations are ALWAYS enjoyable. I just love the Q’s. With them on my telly they can’t do much wrong. Log in to Reply lizluvr October 4, 2012 I died laughing when Kate all but shoved Steve off that chair! Loved the Sam/Liz scenes. Pure soap goodness. Could have done without the Trey/Kristina stuff but all in all a great episode. Log in to Reply rebalove7 October 4, 2012 loved liz telling sam, really glad she stopped there and didn’t tell her about the baby. cannot wait for jason to do that. I wish SBu would take Scott Reeves with him. Steven Lars sucks. loved Connie shoving him. Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones October 4, 2012 “This is the kind of first date you tell your grandkids about!” That said it all! LOL Log in to Reply JasamForever October 4, 2012 I love Ellie and Spinelli. It was so funny that she so wanted to see and see more of the drama unfold. I just love them. :love: I am glad Liz went to Sam and explained what she did. I wonder if Jason will ever tell Sam, about her switching the paternity results. Okay. I don’t want anyone out of a job however I do want actors that are deserving and good in their craft given precedence over an actor that simply cannot act. If there is a petition to release the NuKristina, Lyndsay Morgan and rehire Lexi Ainsworth, then P-H-L-E-A-S-E direct me to it. Why could Joe Scully just die, and not bring Tracey into his mess. I hope she finds out what he did to Kristina soon. Connie is just a hoot, but I am just so over this storyline. I hate what Johnny is having to go through. He should have just come clean a long time ago, because he is just prolonging the inevitable and with more painful results in my opinion. It just hurts to see him go down this road.

And I only have one other thing to say: Ellie Ellie Spinelli Catelli-felly foe felly! Fee fie foe felly! Spinelli-Ellie! Log in to Reply kittyskisses October 4, 2012 I loved it today. I love Liz telling Sam and the look in her eyes when she said the last little bit. Those eyes spoke Volumes!!!!! I love Connie,have always hated Kate. Spinelli/Ellie(what TV Gord said);) Log in to Reply Lucy D. October 4, 2012 I have to admit I liked Trey & Kristina today. Loved Starr punching Connie, and Olivia’s quiet “I told you so.” Steve owes her a big apology. How are they going to get Todd out of big trouble about the baby switch? And I hate the violence on this show, but I was rooting for Joe to die on the spot. Kristina is one of 4 Sonny kids, why would Joe think Trey would inherit Sonny’s fortune anyway? Log in to Reply Yoryla October 4, 2012 IMO this was a good episode. Of course an episode with Monica can’t go very wrong . And love the fact that they are showing the Q mansion more – bet we never thought the two remaining Q’s living there would be Tracy & Monica of all people, LOL! The wedding scenes were good – I just wish Carly would really kick Connie’s ass. And I am glad Starr attacked her! The Trey/Joe Jr. scenes was surprisingly compelling – even Kristina was pretty okay. Now I am NOT a fan of the Liz/Jason/Sam storyline or characters – yawn, snooze, ugh. But today was a little interesting, because of the coming revelations. I do like Tea, and am pleased to see her woven into the canvas. Log in to Reply FoxyMegan October 4, 2012 I thought Lindsay Morgan showed some real acting chops when she was shaking/crying as Trey held Christina. Her best day since she started on GH. Log in to Reply brettyboy October 4, 2012 Just caught up with GH and LOVED the wedding! The end of Tuesday’s episode was a real old fashioned jaw dropping cliffhanger – this really is the best soap if not TV show on the air at the moment! Bell ought to watch and get some advice on how to pull B&B out of the gutter!

That doesn’t necessarily make it legal. For it to be legal, it has to be registered under the proper legal names of people qualified to enter into a legal contract. If the certificate is under the name Constanza but her legal name is Katherine, it’s not legal. Also, given Kate/Connie’s known DID issues, the certificate would have to be signed by the legally recognized dominant personality and that personality would have be to be deemed legally sane at the time the certificate was issued. I can’t imagine that’s the case. Has it been decided by a psychiatrist or judge which personality is the true legal personality and which is just a symptom of psychopathy? And are Kate and/or Connie legally sane and thus eligible to be entering into a legal contract? I think the answer to both questions is no. I can’t imagine that it will stand as legal unless Connie threatens or blackmails someone. Log in to Reply CarlyCfan October 4, 2012 What a great show! Even Kristina didn’t annoy me. Log in to Reply BigFan October 4, 2012 GREAT show today!!!!! Loved Spinelli and Ellie & Liz and Sam. Really, really loved Starr laying one on Connie. That was AWESOME!!!!! Just don’t understand why Johnny didn’t send some of his guys to take care of Connie for him. Looking forward to John and Tea and Jason and Sam. Feel bad for Tea. Looking forward to Thursday and Friday already. Log in to Reply thecourt99 October 4, 2012 I guess you can add me to the category of people that still don’t like the acting of the young lady that plays Kristina. Most notably, when she was shaking, she looked like she was sitting on something hot. Log in to Reply GHvetfan October 4, 2012 Kristina still sucks, Sonny and Connie are not entertaining. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 October 4, 2012 What a total soapy show, reminded me of the soap shows of the 80’s. Yes, some of it was a bit silly and over-the-top, but it had me laughing. Kelly Sullivan did an awesome job, love how she gets into Sonny’s face. They have chemistry together, (her eyes look a lot like his real wife Paula’s), and when he teared up at the end it looked real. Loved the Monica/Tracy scenes so much. Can’t beat the vets! Kristina, Starr and Trey, their acting is still off to me, they LOOK like they are acting. Liked the Liz and Sam scenes also. GH may not be perfect, but for some reason lately I can’t wait to see what happens next. The show is moving a lot faster now. Anyone who still gets Soapnet, certain nights when I can’t sleep I watch GH, it’s on from 4-6 AM. The shows now are from 2009, with Claudia. I don’t blame Sarah Brown for leaving the show. It is so disgusting to watch Sonny, and her own father, keep calling her a slut and a loser. The show was SO degrading to woman back then, it makes me sick to watch. Sam was also treated so badly back then. Guza wrote women as just plain degrading. The whole show revolved around Jason, Sonny, Cary and the mob and the police, Mac, were treated as idiots. So, when I have doubts about the show now, at least it is so much lighter, faster, not Mob EVERY day and hopefully once Jason is gone Liz and Sam will become stronger women. Looking forward to Sean Kanan, he’s a good actor, will be a plus to the show and I hope it involves the Quartermaines.

I’m sorry Sam but you kissed John FIRST…YOUR husband went to LIZ..YOU chose to get a divorce..YOU chose to believe what you saw instead of just talking to YOUR husband…I give her a week before she is in bed with John after Jason is gone. Thank God Liz is free from this madness Log in to Reply GHFan777 October 4, 2012 I second your post Sista Raven….While I enjoyed the show yesterday….I did have a problem with Liz saying she manipulated Jasam into their divorce. Months ago Jason emotionally abandoned his wife when he told her to get rid of her Franco baby. He had no sympathy for his raped pregnant wife. Sam had the good sense to leave him over this, as anyone with a ounce of self respect would do….Months ago Sam lied to her husband multiple times…Months ago Sam started to bond and emotionally connect with another man, even though her husband did not like it….Months ago Sam kissed this very same man, while married to Jason. I think Jasam managed to separate and draw up divorce papers all based on their own actions. If either one of them really didn’t want to get divorced, they would have decided to fight for their marriage… and NOT sign these papers. Bottom line…it wouldn’t have matter what ANYONE else said. Other than that I thought the wedding was funny. I am loving Ellie…and still hating nuKristina. That poor girl really can’t act to save her life. Log in to Reply FaisonFanInTexas October 4, 2012 I thought it was mostly a good, entertaining show today. Loved Starr slapping the shizz out of Kate, loved the Ellie/Spinelli stuff. She’s great, I would’ve wanted to hang around & see the drama, too…you know, way off out of the way in a corner. I felt so bad for Johnny, he really did look beat down. I wish he would’ve had his people “deal” with Connie instead of going along with her, though. Loved the Monica/Tracy scenes. As hard as they try not to, they are becoming closer. So much for redeeming Joseph. I hate that he’s dragging Tracy into this mess. Still not digging Kristina, she’s just terrible. :tired: I’m so ready for that weak ass Steven Lars to pack his bags & leave town. I’m no Olivia fan but she can do better than that pos. Log in to Reply bishbay October 4, 2012 When the delay in getting to Sam’s baby is found out to have allowed Heather to snatch said baby, Sam and Jason are probably going to go IN on Liz. Those scenes won’t be fun to watch. Log in to Reply tvlover01 October 4, 2012 I DISAGREE RAVEN SAM WAS INDIGNANT AND SELF-RIGHTEOUS SHE SEEM CONFUSED AND DIDNT UNDERSTAND WHY LIZ WOULD DO ALL THAT BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT THEY WERE ALREADY BACK TOGETHER BEFORE SHE CONNIE PARTY AND SHE KNOW JASON HAS FEELINGS FOR LIZ. IN THE END IT ALL WORKED OUT CAUSE THEY BEHAVED LIKE GROWN ASS WOMEN. IM A JASAM 1.0 FAN BUT NOT 2.0 BUT I FLOVE LIZ AND SAM. I LIKE LIASON ALSO SO IM ON THE FENCE WITH HOW THIS STORY IS BEING PLAYED OUT IM JUST GONNA WAIT AND SEE. WHILE I DONT LIKE THAT THEY HAD LIZ SWICH THE DNA RESULTS I FEEL LIKE SOMETHING GOOD CAN COME FROM THIS IT CAN BE A WAY TO HAVE LIZ FIND HERSELF AND MOVE ON FROM LUCKY AND JASON AND MAYBE MOVE INTO PATRICK ORBIT OR A NEW GUY. FOR SOME REASON I REALLY LIKE MCBAM I LOVE THE WAY JOHN LOOK AT SAM HE’S SO INTENSE WHEN HE KISSED SAM SHOULDER THAT WAS HOT BUT IM GLAD THEY DIDNT GO ALL THE WAY TOO SOON. I WISH SBU WASNT LEAVING SO WE COULD GET THE JASAM/LIASON/MCBAM TRIANGLE/QUAD I THINK IT WOULD HAVE TURNED OUT GREAT.

Log in to Reply GHvetfan October 4, 2012 Here is a question about something that confused me. Why were Luz and Jason going to the wedding together? Why was Liz going at all ? Log in to Reply tml October 4, 2012 Ummm, when and why did the Quatermaine house get a re-do? The fireplace is on the other side of the room, the terrace doors are now in the back….seriously, WTH? Log in to Reply Cyberologist October 4, 2012 The background music reminds me of old school dramas. Tracey/Monica great scenes….with Sean coming back maybe as /AJ Monica will have something to do. Actors: Trey/Kristina/Joe triad of bad acting made the scenes comical for me. Stange that Joe would kidnap Krystina but I liked how they had this going along side the Monica/Tracey scenes As a Johnny fan, I’m still having trouble with all powerful Konnie manipulating him to and fro now he’s stuck w/another crazy broad. This isn’t the JZ to throw is relationship with Carly away, seems he would have at least warned her re: Konnie…I find it strange that Carly would want to attend this wedding why is she there? A very obvious plot device for the Konnie reveal which wasn’t surprising since she’s been acting like Konnie for weeks. No one noticed except Olivia. I’m rooting for Sonny Konnie has gotten on my nerves; I want her taken down. She’s arrogant, selfish, and I’ll be glad when this campy storyline is over but was so glad when Starr slapped the crap out of her. I’m afriad that Bonnie will emerge soon. Elizabeth under the bus to brown nose JaSam again this whole thing as Ron’s plot (story) beat because Steve’s Jason is leaving doesn’t have this fan happy its just horrid for us; I could have done without it. Elizabeth fans always get the short end even with Frons’ chosen regime nothing changes here. Reminds me of Sam vowing to take everything away from Elizabeth…now Elizabeth’s vow that she’ll get everything back. Its no question who gets the writing here. Every time her character grows they bring her back to ground zero only the chosen can grow on this show. So Jason Elizabeth’s friendship is totally damaged right before Jason exit story… Thanks Ron at least their scene was pleasant. Log in to Reply Steph570 October 4, 2012 tml I noticed that too! it was very distracting. Don’t mess with the Q mansion people it’s a relic! Log in to Reply SoapGirl October 5, 2012 This Kate mess is just a more of Jess/Tess from OLTL and I am so sick of it, same situations and Kate will never be healed, just one exhausting mess after another. This will go on for an eternity and Johnny I no longer recognize because these writers just love to demasculinize the men and they have starting with Johnny. Let the demasculinization begin. Log in to Reply TV Gord October 5, 2012 This Kate storyline is nothing like the Jess/Tess storyline from OLTL. That’s like saying one murder story is just like any other murder story. The situations aren’t alike at all. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
