Sabrina finds Liz crying, and asks what’s wrong. She is shocked to hear about Steve going to a Memphis prison. Liz is just glad the lying is over. She advises Sabrina to speak with Patrick and confess her feelings for him. Sabrina assures Liz she and Patrick are just friends. She doesn't want to lose their friendship if Patrick doesn’t return the feelings. Liz tells her about lunch with AJ, and her insecurities about trusting him. Sabrina asks Liz if AJ is worth the risk, and Liz decides to go ahead with the date.  
 


Tracy pushes Spinelli to get the relish recipe.  He tells her AJ is using a lab tech, who happens to be his girlfriend. Spin doesn’t want to jeopardize their relationship.  Tracy informs him that she owns the building where his office is located. She threatens to toss him out if he doesn’t do as she asks. 
 
Starr is distracted from her work with Elle because of Todd’s trial. She worries her father will be locked up forever. Elle gets her back on track, and they continue working.  The duo tastes a batch, but realize there is a missing ingredient. 
 
Michael visits Carly at the Metro Court, and calls her out on being upset about Todd’s trial.  Carly assures him that she no longer cares about Todd, and doesn’t want to deal with bad men anymore.   AJ arrives and starts arguing with Carly, until Michael stops them. Michael leaves, and AJ continues speaking with Carly.  
 
AJ wants to know the identity of the mystery Quartermaine heir.  Carly asks why he cares, since he’s already beaten Tracy.  AJ tells Carly he wants a backup plan.  He gets a text from Liz about the date, and asks Carly for a reservation.  He informs her the date is with Liz.  Carly warns him part of Liz’s heart is with Lucky, and the other half with Jason.   
 
Sonny wakes up, thankful to be with Kate.  Kate asks if he has real feelings for Connie, but Sonny doesn’t want to talk about it.  He offers to make her breakfast, and they head downstairs. Sonny is shocked to find the broken mirror.  Kate pretends to be surprised, and blames Max and Milo.  Sonny talks about getting her treatment, and Kate assures him that she will find a therapist.  
 
When Sonny leaves, Kate grabs a piece of the mirror and hears a voice. She turns to the mirror and it is revealed Kate is inside the mirror, while Connie is outside. Connie has taken over again. Connie declares she’s here to stay, and will make Sonny pay for cheating on her with Kate.  
 
At the courthouse, reporters swarm Todd. After Diane states he doesn't have a comment, Todd professes his love for Carly. Diane quickly drags him inside the courtroom.  Diane breaks the news to him that Johnny didn’t agree to call off his goons.  
 
The trial begins. The DA calls Heather to the stand, and she testifies that she acted alone in the baby switch. Heather completely exonerates Todd from having anything to do with the crime. Next, the DA calls Johnny’s goon to the stand, and he testifies Todd was outside when Heather did the switch. He recalls Todd only became involved when Johnny brought him in on the scheme.  Diane asks for a dismissal of all charges against Todd in the baby kidnapping.  
 
Michael stops by the hospital to take Starr to the courthouse, as Ellie discovers what's missing in the relish. Spin shows up, and she tells him she’s figured out the recipe. 

Ellie briefly leaves Spin alone in the lab. She returns, just as AJ arrives for an update on her progress. When Elle tries to show AJ the recipe, she can't find it. At the Quartermaine Mansion, Spinelli shows up with the recipe.  
 
Michael and Starr arrive at the courthouse in time to hear Todd is a free man.
 
Carly sees the video of Todd declaring his love.  She turns to find Todd standing before her.

You KNOW it's bad when a poster named "katehoward" wants Connie/Kate killed off! LOL We have to suffer thru ANOTHER day of her today Sad

Had to take a breather to recover from that trauma that is Starr's eyeliner. Please no flowers or cards, i'm feeling better Smile Just finished Fri's ep this morning, nothing spectacular. Very plotty, no surprise i guess that Todd gets off the hook Sad I knew they'd need a doozy to rationalize Spin's deceitful behavior, i'll just go with the flow on this one.

LOVE having Sabrina focus on someone besides herself, wonder if they are slowly trying to grow this character a bit and broaden her appeal. The Liz scenes were great, and i for one wouldn't mind a Carly/Liz war over A.J., just not sure how Todd would figure into that -- i don't want the cynicism of Todd tainting our Elizabeth!

I have nothing to base this on, but I'm guessing Ron would make the worst liver ever. In fact, even though I haven't eaten meat in more than 25 years, and I've only even heard of Ron for a few years, I think he's the one who has totally ruined liver for me.

Oh my God, You are all freakin certifiable ( right there with Heather Webber!) GH sucks without Steve Burton, You are all soooooo disloyal. Steve Burton was the anchor to this show. It's amazing how many actors are running out the door...Julie (LuLu) Brandon (Johnny) Can't wait to see who's next. I'm seriously dealing with 50 yr olds or OLTL fans, Jason Morgan may not have beeen your favorite character on GH but really, how can you be so disrespectful to a person (Steve Burton) who was so loyal and in our homes 5 days a week. Don't like his character, I don't care, but you are making us, GH fans look like fools----Bashing him every chance you get. Give it a break and leave him alone. whether you like it or not, he was apart of this show for 21 years, if you don't have anything nice to say then shut the hell up!

Certifiable? Pot, meet kettle.

I am a huge SB fan and I do miss him on the show. However, the show does not suck without him. You need to be careful how you bash other posters on here. Even if there is dissent in regards to how certain characters or parts of the show are written, most of the GH posters on this site are super loyal watchers/fans and have been for years. I think we all complain at times because we care. Your judgement of us though, is not wanted. Just so you know, my MOM is a Baby Boomer. Ok, carry on..

The best post i've read thus far is Yorla's (2nd runner up Liason4real). Spot on throughout. To answer one question, i think Laura Wright's willingness to do PR seems to help her in the long run. You don't see RH doing jack squat in that area, she seems to keep a low profile and maybe focuses on her family on her off time. On the other hand, LW and Fronsie were BFF's. Just something to consider. But i agree with you on all fronts. I don't see Tarly as some riveting couple either, and it was clear to me AGES ago that Tarly was the end game and Johnny was gonna be backburnered and pushed in another direction (which meant ultimately BB leaving the show Sad ) It also has to do with the fact that TPTB -- for whatever reason -- consider LW to be a lead actress and RH supporting Sad There is nothing sublime about Carly as there was under SB and TB. As others have noted here, Carly is just a one-note shrew!

@ GHfan-4now, can you please come visit this thread every day? Whenever i make these anti-Todd comments i'm booed off the stage! EXACTLY -- there's nothing root-worthy in the Todd character. He can be comic relief at times, but little more beyond that. The character's seemed written into a corner for a while, and pleading with Carly to the reporters is just pathetic LOL

@ Perkie, not sure if you heard this or not but I saw the following on GH Happenings:

Rick Herbst aka Hearst (Ric Lansing) tweeted: So I hear the GH nurses Ball is being filmed on Friday. Think Ric Lansing should crash it?

Can anyone confirm that GF is only on a 3 month contract? I sadly think my time will be up if that is true...i only caught up on the show so i could be ready for her Feb 11th debut, and have been sadly disappointed thereafter, as i've vented on this thread.

Crazy Cawnie, one note wench Carly and goth Starr won't be enuf to keep me interested if that's true. I know it's selfish of me to say, but i really don't want Ron creating new characters, i just want him to write for the established ones GH has, and slowly create a new generation. Not more DID s/l's or a character (Sabrina) related to another minor character we haven't seen in 10 years (tho of course she may end up being Franco's spawn, who knows)

Iowa, the deal made was initially for three months, but open-ended. Meaning they will revisit the matter after seeing how things work out (how much GF brings to the table (not that that should even be an issue imo)).

One other thing to consider besides Cartini, is ABC. Obviously they are doing some of the best cross-promotion they have done in years, in several ABC talk shows and other medias, and they have chosen to send Genie to nearly all of these events to promote GH. So considering GF has been their poster girl, I cannot imagine ABC would want her gone after that. Hopefully not, at least.

Thanks Yorla for the info. Genie has been a trooper and gone above and beyond ur so right. Seeing that we're having her onscreen only 2 days a week, i had an increasing sense that this was a limited run and not a long term contract. Let's hope that they do the right thing by the viewers! I'm crossing my fingers...
