Tracy complains to Luke about Duke stealing the relish, but explains she gave him fake money as a little payback.  Luke doesn’t think she made a wise decision, especially with the SEC breathing down her neck.  Tracy only cares about her missing relish.  Tracy changes the subject to Laura, and Luke feels Laura needs to know Scotty’s playing her. Tracy doesn’t understand Luke’s need to save Laura, but Luke vows he would be there for Tracy if she needed him as well.  
 


Anna’s shocked to hear Duke’s money is counterfeit.  Duke swears he wouldn’t use forged bills, and confesses they came from Tracy.  He explains the entire Pickle Lila situation to Anna. Anna points out Duke was breaking and entering.  Duke decides to confront Tracy, and Anna joins him. 

Scotty assures Laura that Anna and Luke are still together. Laura is not pleased Anna is cheating on Luke.  She feels she has to tell Luke the truth.  Scott says it isn’t their business, and advises her not to say anything.  Laura agrees, but when Scotty heads to the shower, Laura heads out.  
 
Connie accuses Kate of stealing her life and man.  Kate points out Connie hates Sonny, but Connie admits things changed due to Trey's death. Connie informs Kate that she had a psychiatrist prove Kate is the alter. Kate gets angry and throws a paperweight. The mirror shatters, and Connie disappears.  Kate heads back upstairs to Sonny. 
 
At the police station, Molly worries about what’s going to happen to Rafe.  John tells her they’re trying to set up a foster home for him. However, in the meantime, Rafe will go to a group home.  Molly wants Rafe to come home with them, but Alexis says they have to follow the rules. She also points out it would upset TJ.  Molly promises Rafe all will be fine, and he thanks her for her support.  
 
John decides to wait with Rafe.  The social service woman comes for Rafe, who thanks John for his help.  
 
TJ complains to Shawn about Molly being too invested in Rafe.  Shawn assures him everything will work out. When Molly arrives, TJ can tell something is wrong with her. He promises she can trust him with whatever is bothering her.  Molly admits she’s worried about Rafe being alone.  In turn, TJ tells her about Kate’s return, which thrills Molly. 
 
Laura shows up at the mansion to talk to Luke.  Before she has a chance, Anna and Duke arrive.  Tracy’s upset by all the people in her home, and Duke doesn't make things any better. He throws the fake money at her, and claims he wants to press charges.  Tracy wants Duke charged with breaking and entering, and theft.  Anna decides she needs to arrest both Tracy and Duke, unless they mutually decide not to pursue this further. 
 
Scotty arrives and asks to speak with Laura. Laura obliges, and Scotty tells her he thought they had decided not to get involved in Luke and Anna's relationship. He orders Laura to leave with him.  Back at the hotel, Laura hopes she did the right thing in not saying anything.  Scott reminds Laura she doesn’t have to pick up after Luke anymore. He feels they need to focus on their wedding.  

Anna tells Duke they can’t be together, because it will end up being a conflict of interest. She can’t turn a blind eye to his law breaking because, she’ll lose her job and self respect. Duke doesn’t understand, but Anna stresses she doesn’t want to go down this road again.

Why would Monica allow the man that killed her grandson in her home in the first place? Luke and Tracy tampered with Alan's will and stole Jake's inheritance.

I am so tired of Konnie.

Great posts SwanQueen and GHFan777 -- very heartfelt admissions and observations worth nothing. I agree about JBM, seeing her on regularly with Francis is what made me catch up to speed on this show in the first place!

Hey guys -- a friend reminded me that she believes MB has it in his latest contract NO MORE KIDS...is this true? That would mean no babies for Cate and Sonny...

I'm gonna stop being such a crybaby and just accept MR as NuLu...crossing my fingers!

I totally understand AND agree with your assessment of JMB's departure Swan. Such a shame. She did win a few Emmys for GH as Lulu, and deserved better.

Why doesn't't Alexis do something about her daughter's obsession with a boy she just met? Molly is one more screeching declaration of "caring" about a rafe before he should get a restraining order against her.

And what type of mobster sleeps so soundly that he doesn't hear all the noise Kate was making in his living room? And was his security? They should have come running when Kate broke the mirror.

I also appreciated Luke trying to counsel Tracy on her bad habit of going overboard with her schemes. She has no concept of proportional retaliation and goes way too far in her quest to get even with people.

And Anna ending it with Duke was so sad. The two of them shine together and her pushing him away is just heartbreaking.

ROTF to all your valid points Daniel St. John!

Poor Alexis and Shawn, with no story of their own, just herding the annoying youngsters. Gotta give GH credit for keeping Rafe in the same tee shirt for 2 months, but still no jacket to be found. LOL

The only way i could tolerate years of "Rolly" is when they juggle the veterans as well.

Great scene in the Q mansion ... the only thing missing was Monica walking in and saying, "WTF is going on in my house???"

I agree with a previous poster about Luke even being allowed in that house.

Seriously though, having Monica and Alice in today's scene would have been killer.

I felt so bad for Duke at the end of the show. Funny how Anna had to pay for dinner.

More great scenes from the vets.

Just saw this episode.

Between TG's latest comments about Tracy supposedly being Luke's best mate and his ad-libbed acting choices re: the drinking, a shadow has unfortunately been cast on his portrayal of Luke. I know TG is an Emmy-winning legend. But WHEN are the showrunners going to stop people like him (another example is Eric Braeden on Y&R) run their storylines??? TG can't just "decide" that it's okay for his alcoholic character to take a drink. Nor can he just go on record stating basically how "Tracy is the love of Luke's life", basically diminishing L&L, Laura, the biggest love story of soaps ever told, etc. That's just disrespectful to the whole show. Yes Tony, we all know that Jane Elliot is a very good friend of yours and thus you feel you want to work with her as much as possible. But that does not give you the right to try to dictate the storyline. Should you possibly think also about the fans, and the reason WHY you are so big in this industry? I love Tracy & Luke as good friends and comedic relief, but I'm sorry, that's as far as it goes. There is no great love story between them, and good acting chemistry does not always equal to romance. I just hope Cartini is tough enough to keep him in line conerning the storyline.

I digress. I also saw some sort of mind control from Scotty to Laura. Also, when he came in he told Laura "Well that wasn't really YOUR decision to make (re: coming to see Luke)" That's when I was like what? Something definitely off there.

SO glad Anna & Laura finally met, AND they did it right by mentioning it on screen. So happy about that.

However, Laura & Duke have never met before either. Why was there no formal introduction? When legendary characters meet, I want there to be precision about these things.

Loved the scenes in the Q house. Anna breaking up with Duke was palpable. I also think and hope they are going for a Tracy/Duke/Anna triangle. I just can't see them going for a Luke/Anna thing anymore (please, no).

This episode was the first time I really was bothered by Jane Elliot's "yelly" style of acting. Usually it works pretty well, and fits to Tracy's persona. But in the scenes with Luke today, it just seemed out of place, since they weren't even talking about anything really that important to her. And even if it was important, she should save the yelliness for occasion that truly warrant it. That way she would get the most "oomph" out of it.

I'm sorry but I couldn't care less about where Rafe will be staying, Molly's book or people in the mirror. FFd through all that junk.
