comments


Carly overhears AJ leaving a voice message for Liz. He asks for a chance to make things up to her. Carly wants to know why AJ would provoke Sonny, and then realizes AJ wanted Sonny to hit him. She believes it was his way of punishing himself for messing things up with Liz.  Carly asks what happened at the Metro Court, and AJ explains he’s been having panic attacks. Carly wonders what he’s afraid of, but he swears he has the episodes under control. He only wants Liz back.  Carly tells him Liz is moving on with Nik, and he should do the same with someone else.  
 


Liz helps Nikolas settle into Windermere, despite her objections to him staying at the creepy place.  Liz offers up her place, but Nikolas wonders what AJ would think of it. Liz doesn't care, and notices she missed a call from AJ.  Nikolas asks if she’s through with AJ.  Liz tells him AJ is begging for a second chance, but Nik warns her AJ hasn’t changed.  Liz believes it’s better things with AJ ended so quickly.  
 
Ellie is about to explore Maxie’s medical file, when Maxie walks into the room. Ellie quickly closes her laptop, which piques Maxie’s curiosity.  Ellie claims she was Skyping with Spin, and Maxie’s grossed out they were having cyber sex in the living room.  After Maxie exits the room, Ellie debates with herself on whether she should look at the medical record or not. She decides she should, for the sake of the baby.  
 
Dante asks for Max’s help in locating Lulu, so he can get her medical help.  Max claims he may have a lead, and heads out. 
 
Lulu and Milo are working out together.  He tells her that she needs to go back to Dante, but she isn’t ready yet. Lulu wonders why she can’t stay with Milo longer.  Milo confesses he used to really like her.  Lulu asks why she didn’t like him back, and Milo explains she was interested in someone else. Then, she fell for Dante and the rest is history.  
 
Connie passes on Johnny’s information about Morgan and his gambling debts to Olivia and Sonny. Olivia wonders if Johnny is setting up Sonny, but Connie doesn’t believe Johnny would lie about Morgan. Sonny decides he needs to check into it.  
 
Sonny finds Dante and updates him on the Morgan issue.  Dante can’t believe Morgan would get into gambling, and feels he should know better considering Sonny’s business.  Sonny says Morgan was never really exposed to the business enough to know who to stay away from. He promises there will be hell to pay if something happens to Morgan.  Sonny tells Dante to stay in Port Charles and focus on getting Lulu's memory back. Sonny will take Shawn with him to find Morgan.  
 
Max tells Lulu she can’t keep hiding from Dante, and Sonny will be angry at Milo.  Lulu wants Max to keep quiet, but he’s decided he’s going to tell Dante.  Lulu admits she can’t go back to Dante yet, because he’s a stranger to her. Max doesn't care, and believes she’s messing with Milo’s life. Max can’t protect them anymore.  Max heads over to Dante’s, and tells him Lulu is with Milo.  
 
Milo’s upset that Max turned on him, because Max has always looked out for him. He only wanted things to be okay for Lulu.  Lulu won’t forget everything he’s done for her, and they kiss.  
 
Ellie looks at Maxie’s medical file, which indicates her pregnancy was confirmed on December 24th, but she miscarried on January 2nd. Then, a pregnancy was confirmed on January 18th.  Ellie doesn’t understand how any of this is possible. 
 
AJ calls Liz again, and Nik answers the phone.  AJ is angry; even though Nikolas informs him it isn’t what it seems.  Liz takes the phone, and AJ yells she barely waited a day before playing house with Nikolas and hangs up.  He decides he’s going to have a drink.  Carly tries to stop him, and AJ wonders why. He knows she's wanted him to fall off the wagon since his return.
 
Carly pours AJ a glass, and taunts that he’ll lose his son if he drinks. AJ knocks the glass out of her hand, and she asks if he’s going to hit her.  Instead, AJ grabs Carly and kisses her. 
 
Liz is upset AJ jumped to the wrong conclusion about her relationship with Nikolas. Liz believes everyone knows that she and Nik are over.  Nik isn't sure if he knows they're over.  He tells Liz he can’t stop thinking about her, and has never gotten over her. Nikolas pulls Liz into a kiss.

I'm anticipating the return of Lulu's memory and feelings for Dante, and I can't help but feel incredibly bad for Milo. The only way Lulu likes him--wait, "likes him likes him" as he'd say--is if she has amnesia. Milo needs love.

Haven't even watched the episode yet but even just reading the recap of Carly/AJ exchange is FIRE.

I don't want AJ and Carly to have sex, but I've suspected the bickering between the two of them was just their weird foreplay. Expect Carly to claim that AJ seduced her when the secret comes out.

How many chances is AJ going to get with Liz? He's begging for a third chance. It doesn't matter because this relationship is doomed but at least the fallout from AJ's tryst will be entertaining.

AJ should have told Liz that he didn't care about her past at Kelly's and only cares about their relationship from this point on. If AJ doesn't have the courage to resist Carly and fight for Liz, he doesn't deserve Nurse Webber.

I have always loved that AJ is self destructive. He doesn't need anyone or anything to help him destroy himself. That said, AJ has the worst past. He should be first in line not to judge Liz and go off on her based off flimsy evidence. I still love him though. I love all my flawed characters (Ric,Zander,AJ)Ron C is writing AJ great, imo. AJ has always been is worst enemy and it's true. Not including the years he was tortured by CarSon.

That whole Carly/AJ scene made my stomach crawl. I would rather AJ smoke crack then have sex with Carly. Carly tortured, I mean TORTURED, that man for years. He couldn't even have a relationship with his son! He should have just drunk the water looking vodka than hook up with Cujo.

How great were the Lulu/Milo scenes. I am so in love with this Lulu. Her chemistry with Milo is so cute. I just love seeing them together. Also I agree with this Lulu. Dante is too pushy. I know that's part of his personality but he's gonna need to calm down. I do want to see Lante fall in love but Milo and Lulu are too cute to let go.

Liz: Everyone knows that what happened between us is over
Nik: Do you know that? Cause I don't know that

I have no comment on my love for them. I screamed so loud today. Perfection. When Nik left, things between them two were unresolved. I always thought he still loved her.

I've always hated Carly but did thoroughly enjoy her scenes today with AJ. Laura and Sean have great chemistry.

Now I don't get the Milo thing at all. Yes he has a great body but it's painful to watch Cheetwood (I think that's his name) try to act. There's a reason he has always been an occasionally seen supporting type character.

The episode was good. I am not a fan of the contrived amnesia story and feel that the creation of a separation between Dante and lulu with a simplistic soap plot could have been accomplished a million other ways that seem fresh and thought out. This is just a sad use of characters.

I actually like the banter... Both hostile and thoughtful... Between Carly and AJ. I think it shows a maturity. But pairing them up again is just dumb. Why can't they just be friends instead of damn sloppy lovers ... Even for michaels sake!

I just want Carly to have a new man who will let her be Carly while still loving her deeply. Sonny. Jax. AJ. All loved her but controlled her in some way. Too bad Johnny's gone.

I wonder how long before a fight breaks out between Olivia and Connie over sonny will happen?

How come no one is calling Carly out for being a complete whore? She is about to have sex with a man she completely abhors. Carly and AJ may have good chemistry, but they are totally toxic. Their complete history has been one of pure contempt and hatred. They have done horrible things to one another, and have never cared about the other in the least. I don't think I need to remind anyone of their horrible past, they throw it in each others faces continually.

I also can't see how people can compare them to the new Monica/Alan. Monica and Alan did love one another at least, and they BOTH have in common that they have always identified as being a Quartermaine ....something Carly and AJ have never shared. All AJ and Carly have had is drunken sex, and hatred towards one another. I don't know...I think as a combative pair they are good, but definitely not as a romantic couple. BUT...to get back to my point....why isn't anyone condemning Carly for being a tramp...She only stayed there to goad AJ because she overheard his conversation with Elizabeth. Did he suddenly become more attractive to her knowing that AJ really wants a chance with Elizabeth? We all know how jealous Carly has always been where Elizabeth is concerned. As she hurled her insults at him she was all up in his space coming on to him...I just don't get it...Is she that desperate to have a man, any man will do....even one she hates. To me her behavior was disgusting. This is a excellent example of why I will always hate the character of Carly.

I still don't know how I feel about Niz...I hated it the first time around...on the fence this time.

As for Lulu...where as I like ER, I am not caring for this version of Lulu. I don't like how she is taking advantage of Milo...(who needs to get a clue). It is also kind of hard to accept this new actress in the role, when she is acting so unlikable, and not sympathetic enough to care about her loss of memory.

I find myself curious about this new story with Morgan coming up.

I am glad that Ellie knows the truth. Hopefully now this story will have some movement.

The most interesting thing going on at GH right now is Carly and AJ. I am really enjoying their love/hate relationship and both actors have that fire type of chemistry between them. The rest of the show has been a bit of a bore. Sick of Sabrina, wish somehow Patrick would get involved with a more mature woman. The man is gorgeous, how about Liz, since they both have children and can connect that way, have a kids day out together, and Nik also be involved in a love triangle. I don't want to see Liz and Nik rushed, I want to see him wine and dine her. Stop with the jumping right into bed, it kills all the relationships. I want to see a couple meet, and take it slow, let the chemistry build between them. Yes, I still believe in old-fashioned love, but I guess it really is a " dream-world " these days.
I miss JMB as Lulu. Emme R is so tiny and doesn't seem as strong as an actress as Julie was. But, I'm sure eventually she will grow into the role and be great. Poor Milo, he's so gullible to woman, but I do like him and glad he's getting more screen time.

AJ did during their argument.

If they're trying to get me to hate NOTLu with every fibre of my being, they're doing a really great job.

I totally hate both her and Milo too. Not feeling sorry for the guy at all. He knows she's not mentally well and is married.

Yep...he sure did...and I guess that is aphrodisiac to Carly...Getting called a whore turns her on enough to want to have sex with a man she hates....This is why they are all kinds of wrong, regardless of their chemistry. I must really be old fashioned wanting love and romance present in my couples.

I am loving where they are going with Carly/AJ/Liz/Nikolas quadrangle they got going on. They might have a toxic past but Carly and AJ were HOT in their scenes! LOVED it! And Nikolas grew a pair and made a move, it was nice.

I just love Milo to pieces. I don't care that he's dim, he's a sweetheart but I do feel bad for him cause he and Lulu can't be together.

Looking forward to more of the Morgan story and the addition of Maura West as Ava Jerome...new love interest for Sonny??? Maurice Bernard and Maura West? I like it!

Have we seen the last of Johnny and Kristina?

I am so on the AJ/Carly train, LW and SK are smoking together and have way more sparks than Quiz, and Niz has way more chem than quiz.

I LOVED Maxie today, I loved when she started to sing to tune out Nancy Drew, should KS ever want to spread her wings I think she'd perfect in a comedy.

Can't wait for today's episode!

I would probably buy that Carly falls again for AJ if they devised a storyline that softened the two to one another. One of the greatest things about GH is changing the dynamic of a couple by either tragedy or simple cultivating the relationship over time.

Also, another big is doing timely stories like Maxie's heart transplant and Tony's death to bring characters together in ways they make look natural.

To that end, have an accident occur... Maybe a drunk driving one where an day player leaves macs bar or even Carly's restaurant. He gets into his car and drives head on into michael. The accident puts him into coma and Carly is distraught and AJ is the first to comfort her. Maybe Sonnys anger that the guy was at Carly's restaurant causes their friction that a distraught AJ can see Carly's pain and comforts her.

That could lead to a relationship that would make them the new monica and alan. It would still allow for the contentious relationship AND AFTER MICHAEL Isis the clear medically Carly n AJ could have happy sex instead of the stupid GRIEF SEX that is rampant on daytime.

What would amuse me to no end would be if after Carly and AJ have their angry "pillow fight", she ends up pregnant. These two have a lot of history and a lot of chemistry {LW and SK]. The best/worst of what these two characters are, comes out in their scenes together. Imagine this kind of energy in the Quartermaine house again.

today was hot hot hot. AJ and Carly have pent up aggression. Carly was begging to get funked by AJ. As for Elizabeth and Nicolas I am loving their chemistry. Rebecca has done a total flip she seems more engaged in the story at this point. New Connie is enjoyable and I am a huge fan of Megan Ward as Kate Howard but new Connie is making up for it. While on the subject of Megan Ward how weird was it that Olivia was wearing that green dress and had those blondish highlights just like Megan did about four years ago.

Carly and AJ having a contentious relationship made up of complicated feelings about one another complete with the occasional bit of hate sex is always the way I thought they should have been written. The two of them used to actually be friends once upon a time! It wasn't hate at first sight like you would assume from the way they have interacted over the years. Having Carly and AJ have such a one note relationship was such a weak bit of writing and one of the million things Guza did that made me hate his time in control of this show.

Limited acting ability is the flame and RC is the moth. Drew Cheetwood's Milo could become a leading actor in 2013. SEE OLTL' FORD BROTHERS

I am not a fan of Liz/AJ but I would accept it before Liz/Nik because of my love of their long time friendship and because of the pain the pairing caused the 1st time.
All of the time spent on Sabrina and Britt could have been spent on Patrick and Liz sharing parenting duties for Emma and the boys, falling asleep on each other's couches, joint vacations to Disney(corporate synergy)where room mix ups result in shared rooms but no sex. Everyone but them could notice that they've fallen into a married couple routine. Once they realize and accept their romantic feelings but before they are intimate...here's Robin

My memory of Carly/AJ is that he began to fall for her when they were married but she was scheming the entire time. I could accept a pairing but agree with @pjc722's potential plot.

Of course the best pairing in this quadrangle could be Carly/Nik.

To me the most interesting thing right now is waiting to find out who the three Llanview Amigos will now be playing. My guess? Roger Howarth will be Sam's long-lost father, "Starr" will not be Lauren Frank and Michael Easton will probably be Caleb Morley -- perhaps a rehabilitated one. Carly has chemistry with everybody, so we'll see if she winds up(?) with nu Todd or nu AJ.

I am deciding to stay mum on AJ/Carly cause I just don't know how I feel..chemistry yes but so much damage she has done to him

I am really not happy with Milo and I don't blame Max one bit for ratting him out. I get that he has had feelings for her in the past but she moved on ages ago and he falls like a brick in water. He knows better and knows his boss would kill him. Lulu needs to grow a set put on some clothes and get the phluck out of Milo's apt. I mean I would not need amnesia to be happy to know that at least someone out there gives crap about me

Of all the new characters of the past few years, Ellie is the 1 I like and she is getting the RC hatchet because he cannot write triangles. Ellie is doing things that don't make sense to me for her and don't make me root for Spinelli/Maxie as a couple or as individuals.

I can only hope that Emily Wilson will have a post GH career like that of Claire Coffee(NurseNadine), she gives me the same vibe.

Ellie should be mixing it up with Liz, Nik, AJ, Sabrina, Felix, etc...and out of Spixie drama.
