Robert says Duke and Faison are connected through Anna. Liz wonders if Faison would get surgery to look like Duke. Olivia believes her visions are more about uncovering a hidden truth. Robert wants to call and warn Anna, but Olivia worries they may be wrong. Robert realizes Anna won’t believe him and may tip off Duke. He decides to acquire more proof before bringing his suspicions to Anna. He knows that he needs to move quickly or Faison will take her.

Tracy threatens to buy the house and evict Monica. Anna decides she needs more time and leaves. Duke becomes enraged and destroys the wedding picture of them. 11 Responses Perkie November 19, 2012 I love baby Daniel and the little scowl he makes when someone new shows up to oggle him. Love Robert figuring it out and Anna realizing something is off. Now I want them working together before Faison decides to grab her. Was that a chem test between AJ and Sam? Not sure how I felt about the two of them. Although that could leave McBain open for Liz and all the pretty that would entail. Love Michael reminding Dante that Sonny shot him and he let him get away with it. Maxie needs to move on. I find it interesting, that even though I know Ian Buchanan is playing Duke, that my mind now thinks it’s actually Anders HOve with a mask on Log in to Reply bishbay November 20, 2012 ***spoilers!*** (not really) A.J. and Sam sleep together next month, at the end of sweeps, but Sam’s guilt causes her to become despondent. Alexis takes Daniel. Liz starts to fight her growing feelings for Sabrina. Patrick and Britt do the do, and Britt becomes pregnant. Spinelli gets blown up by Faison and is mourned, very briefly. Ellie and McBain begin a relationship. Maxie is rendered mute. Lulu and Dante leave Port Charles. Carly and Tood who cares. Johnny wakes up from a deep sleep and laughs at the dream/nightmare that was his marriage to Connie. Anna is on every day for the next six months, kicking ass and knocking people’s heads in. Log in to Reply logan_echolls November 20, 2012 I am also so glad Michael reminded that self righteous prick that Sonny shot him in the chest and he lied about it on the stand. Michael had great points and I love him sticking up for AJ. If that was a chemistry test between AJ and Sam, they did not past. I’m sorry but I do not want to see AJ with Jason’s wife. I want to see Sam move on to someone not related to Jason or friends with Jason. Like McBain although I could go for a Liz/McBain hook up. I just remember Jason telling Sam he was sorry for taking Michael away from AJ. I recall he told her that while Michael was in the coma after being shot. So why doesn’t Sam remember that? Tracy needs her butt kicked. I’m still waiting for Monica to mention that she tried to kill Edward years ago. MOVE ON MAXIE, PLEASE!!! I’m so over Spinelli. Glad that Annie didn’t feel right about Duke but I love even more that Liz helped Robert out with the Faison reveal. Didn’t like Olivia standing that asking questions. Why is she questioning the two ppl who know Faison? I just want more for Liz to do. Where is Alexis? Log in to Reply curacaoman November 20, 2012 Can a heart transplantee even serve as a surrogate? Will someone get that sanctimonious prick called Dante off my screen and away from LuLu? Sent him back to Bensonhurst with his pa and ma. Get these assholes off my screen! Log in to Reply Yoryla November 20, 2012 Wow, Sam was really an annoying harpy today. Guess they shouldn’t have been in her house, but the hypocrisy was a little too much. Maxie was the second annoying nuisance today. She went on and on how she had “just realized” how much she loved Spinelli – um, I’m sorry Spinelli was in love with you for five years! I’m glad Spin told her to buzz off, no matter how things pan out with Ellie. I rrrreaaally hope Monica doesn’t lose the house. She really shouldn’t, I mean the police now knows Tracy set AJ up on purpose. Monica was surprisingly calm about Tracy’s actions, then again I’m sure she has grown to expect them from her. Loved all the Quartermaine action today! Finola Hughes is such an amazing actress. Anna’s expression and her eyes today when she just KNEW there was something wrong with “Duke” were so on point. I have to say, Robert solved the whole case pretty quickly, if you ask me. I mean, yes the fact that Faison is not really did is not that far-fetched. But to right away realize he is posing as Duke? That was a bit much for me in one episode. And why is Olivia still there? They are still trying to come up with ways to make her relevant – sorry, it’s not working. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 November 20, 2012 Bradford Anderson was amazing today in his scenes with Maxie. When he first came on the show, he was this computer geek, with all his name-callings, and Jason was his master. It was funny at first, but after 2 years the character started to get on my nerves. I love how Bradford, and the writers, have matured Spinelli. He may not have the typical”Soap Hunk Look”, but there is something about his eyes and his sensitive performances that touches me. I hope they keep him on the show, now that Jason is gone, he is not much needed, but I like him with Ellie and that Maxie realizes now how much he meant to her. Getting ready for Edward’s passing, I know I’ll shed some tears. Log in to Reply The_Moustache November 20, 2012 is it safe for Maxie to be a surrogate/carry a baby to term with her delicate heart transplant??

I enjoyed Anna’s intuition winning out over her desire to believe in Duke. Good performances all around. Robert Scorpio is THE MAN. Hot damn! Olivia and Liz looked really hot. The trio felt like a super crime solving team. Lol. I wish Liz had more to do but Liz’s facial expressions almost make up for it! I swear every time the camera pans to Liz I thought she would spout some epic revelation. It’s the eyebrows! I totally get Olivia’s questioning everything given that she doesn’t know Faison’s history. Her role in this equation gives the opportunity for the audience not watching during Faison’s previous runs a lesson in GH history. The acting and dialogue in the Maxie/Spinelli was really good but I feel nothing for this pair. They are so much better apart. Lets move Maxie on to a new pairing and leave Spinelli with the adorable Ellie! I am happy for AJ’s return because it provides such good story but I do not see Sean Kanan as hot or even that good of an actor. He leaves me flat but everything surrounding AJ’s return interests me. I don’t think AJ and Sam were being chem-tested but rather to whitewash AJ. I don’t think Sam was a hypocrite in those scenes given that AJ tried to kill Jason and that he has faked death to evade the law for his various crimes. I don’t think she should have indulged Michael and allowed AJ in her home. I enjoyed Michael confronting Dante and like the use of recent history but unless Dante goes into a different line of work, isn’t he supposed to arrest people who break the law? AJ broke the law. It seems so many viewers dislike Dante (Sonny and Carly as well) but I don’t think that should give AJ a pass. Log in to Reply JASAMMABBY November 20, 2012 This episode had everything missing from the show for so long. I loved it all. 3 years ago I would never had gotten to see Liz and Olivia work with Robert to solve a crime.. Duke and Anna just creep me out because I keep thinking he doesn’t look real now. His face actually looks all rubbery.. So wierd!! Love that they are letting Michael see grey and he isn’t just calling out everybody but his Dad and Mom out on everything. Also I am sort of hoping that somehow he helps out Monica- he looked so annoyed with Tracy when she threatened to evict her. Monica has been with out family for so long that I dig the idea of someone looking out for her. Thank goodness Spin choose Ellie and I hope it sticks. I love everything about SpinEllie. Hopefully this will allow Maxie to move into a different direction.. I think Sam was right in how she acted. She had every right to be pissed when she first saw him. However as with her character she didn’t just keep judging- she softened and listened. I don’t think it was a chem test- but it felt more like laying ground work for future Q show downs or something. Of course I got to see little Danny- he is so stinkin cute I love it.. Log in to Reply tvlover01 November 20, 2012 YORYLA SAMS ANGER DIDNT LAST LONG.
