Log in to Reply liason4real July 2, 2013 RME. CarSon are toxic. How many times has Carly done something that pisses Sonny off? Carly wearing a wire comes to mind and a host of other nonsense. The writing for AJ needs to backup Liz’s claim that the man has changed. Yes, AJ finally has a relationship with Michael, but he really needs to become a force to be reckon with and handle his own business without calling his mother! My objections to Niz will always be that Nik and Lucky were very close for years versus Jason and AJ. Here’s hoping Quiz is given a fair shot and along the way Liz figures out that Jake is alive being held by Helena’s thugs. Log in to Reply GHteenybopper July 3, 2013 GH was SO BORING today, holy crap. No way in hell would Sonny kill Carly! I don’t know what’s going on with the writing of Carly, but she’s acting really soft. There’s no way she would take that threat from Sonny, and no way would she let Franco and Ava get the best of her. This isn’t the Carly that I know. Enough of FrankenTodd already, holy moly. As for Ava, I think I’d be more afraid her then Franco. I’d rather have her shoved down my throat than FrankenTodd at this point. I see no chemistry with Quiz, I am all aboard on the Niz train. I think Liz just feels bad for Aj because he’s a bit of a loser. I’d prefer to see Nik/Liz and Aj/Carly. The whole upcoming Olivia/Sonny/Kate thing is a hot mess. It’s funny how fast Olivia has forgotten about Steve who she’d be planning a wedding with or already be married too. It doesn’t make any sense that Olivia would choose Sonny’s place over Kate’s when Sonny is a known target for violence. This is so forced. OT: Hope Perkie and all other fellow Canadians had a great Canada day weekend! Log in to Reply liason4real July 3, 2013 I guess RC feels that in order for a potential couple (Anna/Luke, Michael/Starr, Morgan/Kiki/Morgan, Sonny/Olivia) to work that they have to live together. :~ Log in to Reply david46208 July 3, 2013 @liason4real: You know they are is in trouble when it goes from Cartini to just RC. But yes simply making them live together is not going to make a viable couple out of each of these pairings of force. Log in to Reply JASAMMABBY July 3, 2013 Sonny was such a jerk to Milo. I loved how Milo got dimension today. Here is hoping that he becomes the Tony Horton of GH for Deception.. Connie- why oh why do they always write someone half way decent just before they depart. Its hard to believe that everyone women is Sonny’s true love. Loved Lucy working Nic. He is looking very good. Liz is just being cray cray. She just made me cringe today. This is the kind of weiting that makes me dislike her character. I get the feeling when Nic does move on suddenly she will be following him. Just like the BrookLynn situation. It’s interesting how actors and writing can make me feel two different reactions to things. On one hand Carly and AJ sale the hell out of their story. Totally loving their interactions and actual root for them.. Then with AJ/Liz is just the exact opposite.. I find it amazing because it really doesn’t work on paper. It should be the other way but really isn’t for me. Log in to Reply luverica July 3, 2013 I think Sonny’s “explanation and apology” to Carly for threatening her life was rather half-assed. I can’t stand either one of them. In spite of all the Franco hate, I really hope he stands up to Sonny and give him a long overdue comeuppance. Log in to Reply Santa_Barbara_4Ever July 3, 2013 I hope Sonny and Ava go toe to toe…. Log in to Reply liason4real July 3, 2013 I don’t want Liz with Nik. When Nik left town he told Liz to her face in front of Lucky that she was just a substitute for his Emily, and now he’s in love with her? WTF? And yes, RC is basically going to have Liz choose AJ all the while moving the man on to Carly and Nik will end up with Britt. I had high hopes that Liz was going to get a fun romance but that is now going up in smoke. Grrrrrr. Connie is acting normal, but we all know (at least OLTL fans) that RC will have the woman BSC in a few days! Log in to Reply logan_echolls July 3, 2013 If there is one thing about Nik that has always stayed the same is his loyalty to Lulu. So if Ron hooks up Britt and Nik and it comes out that Britt has Lante baby and Nik just forgives her, then Ron is ruining this show. Nik would never stay or still be friends with someone who has hurt Lulu. Olivia is a trick. How dare she use reverse psychology on her mentally ill cousin! She wanted Kate to say yes be with Sonny so she could move in. I can’t stand this character. She so annoying. FF Franco/Ava basically anything doing with Franco. #FreeAva Liz forgives AJ. Ok I thought Liz big thing with AJ was honesty then she goes and rubs it in Nik’s face? What was the point? She’s so freakin crazy So Lucy ask Nik, the ATM Machine, for money. Who doesn’t ask Nik for money? This show deserves last place until it gets it act together. Log in to Reply LindaV July 3, 2013 We’ve been watching Franco and Ava in the Q’s living room for what seems like a month now – boring beyond belief. Franco was just a minor character and we couldn’t stand him then. Watching him now on the front burner is really killing the show. RH was fine as Todd but they are just giving him too much time and neglecting other GH cast members.

When RoHo did that OTT howl/laugh in the Q doorway when Ava denies shooting him, it was just extremely extremely..PAINFUL. THIS is not the leading man this show needs, and of course this is just my opinion. Even tho this is supposed to be upstate NY, Frodd just doesn’t belong here. It’s hard to explain all the levels on which this doesn’t work. Hell, if you’re going to make this bonkers artist a leading man, you may as well just add a gay romance to this show and give Felix more to do than being an annoying busybody in 3 or 4 peoples’ lives at once. (To that end, the actor does a great job projecting SEXUAL FRUSTRATION, b/c that is what i see on Felix’s face first and foremost! But i digress…) Last but not least — WHERE IN THE HELL IS MONICA? Get Leslie Charleson back from her summer vacation stat! Before i started yesterday’s ep, i actually debated how interested i was, and i did a daily rundown in my head about what or who i was exactly watching for. Most of the stories and characters are so TIRESOME, that is the feeling i keep going back to repeatedly.

That’s when he should have spoken up. But he covered it up. And now she forgives him. I’m sorry there was “nothing to forgive.” WTF! Log in to Reply mipeony July 3, 2013 I can just see it now… Connie’s being written off and Olivia’s being written into Sonny’s bed. Yuck. I say get rid of both the B-hood gals. Would Sonny have had Carly shot? Hum…. good question. I believe Sonny loved Brenda the most out of all the women he was ever with, and he always let Carly run roughshod over her, so in my opinion probably not, Sonny wouldn’t have had Carly shot if Olivia had died. If he wasn’t willing to step in and control Carly for Brenda, then he’d never do it for any of the women writhing on his black silk sheets. Whomever is doing waredrobe needs to learn how to dress a real woman. They have a tendency to make GF’s Laura look really frumpy in her clothes and there’s no reason for it. I don’t like AJ or Nic for Liz, brothers… brothers… brothers… it just doesn’t work for me. She should’ve been put with Patrick or someone new with an exciting storyline. I hope ME is on sometime this week, hopefully with a good backstory to explain why he’s such a douche. Log in to Reply js3557 July 3, 2013 I think Liz is bending over backwards to justify AJ’s behavior so that she can ignore her feelings for Nik. This is what I want to say to Liz: “nothing to forgive”? Come on, Liz. He lied to you while knowing Carly was up in his room when you were brave and honest enough to tell him about Nik kissing you. Stop being a doormat just so you can ignore the heat between you and Nik! Liz’s self-protect mode is so self-destructive! She makes me want to bang my head against a wall at times. Tracy lying to Lulu left a bad taste in my mouth. I was glad that Laura didn’t fall for it, but I was surprised that Lulu did. ER didn’t even add some of the subtle looks JMB would have used to express doubt. Log in to Reply Cornfed July 3, 2013 I think part of the problem is Genie has grandma arms, flapping in the breeze, that they need to cover — whether her request or theirs. So i think she’ll always be in long sleeve shirts, which severly limits her. Heck, she always wore long skirts even in 1981! She’s at least wearing bright colors, and the hair looks the best i think it can look, it was in pathetic condition during the Phelps/Guza period. Log in to Reply gloriajean July 3, 2013 I love Milo and wish they would give him a bigger part, although I didn’t like how he interfered with Lante. I agree with mipeony: sexy Laura up! She does look frumpy! Scott has waited over 30 years for his revenge. With no Gail or Lee to stop him and Luke gone, he could finally get it! ToddCo, what can I say…..I’m a Todd fan and that is how he is playing Franco. What’s up with the attitude with Silas? We all know he will move to Port Charles and get a job at GH! I just don’t want him to be a douchebag. STOP with Kiki and Michael. I want Carly/AJ together and Liz/Nic. Liz and AJ don’t have it! I have had more than enough with bratty Morgan and slutty Felix’s sister. Felix needs his love. Sonny/Olivia/Connie with “Connie” leaving we know how that will turn out! Mmmm Who could we put Britch with? She needs somebody strong who can handle her Mommy & Daddy! She has to be carrying Lante’s baby. Make Patrick and Sabrina exciting!!!!! Log in to Reply gloriajean July 3, 2013 Log in to Reply Daniel St. John July 3, 2013 I am not all in with Liz and AJ like I was earlier before RC injected Nik into the mix, I’d have preferred Liz and AJ break up and AJ get involved with Britt. I have wanted that one for a while now. Log in to Reply jeremy in chicago July 4, 2013 I am actually not hating the Franco/Ava scenes as much… but that is primarily because I’m kind of obsessed with Maura West. I don’t really care for Howarth as Todd or Franco. However, in some twisted way, I hate him less as Franco. But I hate Franco more than Todd. So both scenarios sort of cancel each other out and I’m left with a face I’d rather not see on my tv. Maura West and Maurice need to be paired. It’s so obvious that it hurts. Maura and Laura Wright have FIRE between them so they need to develop a feud stat. But it should be over Sonny – def not Franco. It’s completely absurd to watch these scenes though in the Q living room, with no Q’s. That really hurts and makes the show seem even more unfamiliar. Where the f*ck is Monica? I’d pay to see her snide remarks to Ava. Have y’all heard the rumor that Franco is going to have a head injury and wake up as Jason Morgan? I shit you not. That’s RC’s bird-brained plan to do Carly/Franco. Log in to Reply Cornfed July 5, 2013 Sorry, but RoHo is SO SO SO NOT HOT ENOUGH to be Jason Morgan. What are CarToony smoking? I haven’t’ finished Tues or Wed’s episode, and i’m not sure i’m going to, unless my soap friend tells me i missed something good…I just don’t care anymore. Log in to Reply Yoryla July 15, 2013 Wow, I must be in the minority because I really liked this episode!!! I didn’t even FF Franco because I wanted to see if Ava were to crack and admit she did it. SO GLAD she didn’t! That piece of bleach (F) doesn’t deserve anything from her, or anyone else. Laura looked great in this episode. Even though the style of her shirt was a little too loose, I loved the color and the blinging skirt. Very feminine. And it’s true, she IS a real woman. And a very beautiful one at that. What has begun to bother me though, is the hair. It needs way more layer and a lighter color, not the even blonde she used to have, but more highlights. And different hairdos. I’m surprised the women on this show almost always have their hair styled exactly the same way. Laura, Carly, Ava, Alexis – they nearly always have the exact same style and parting in their hair. Anna at least has straight hair from time to time. Liz has the most varied hairstyling. She looks great whenever. I was kind of surprised they had both Lulu and Laura go to see Luke. Kind of an odd choice. It’s like the whole GH universe is telling Laura that she isn’t allowed to see Luke on her own. (Yes I’m talking to you Lucy!) She is, and it would have made much more dramatic sense for Laura to go up to Tracy’s face and demand to know Luke’s whereabouts. On the pretense of her daughter, of course. Now they barely had Tracy look at Laura, and she totally dismissed her addressing only Lulu. It’s like the writers have totally dropped the *drama* when it comes to Laura. She is acting like a normal person, not like a soap character. And that is not a good thing. And as much as it pains me to say it, but I’m starting to be inclined to agree with some poster’s opinion on ER as Lulu. I loved her as Abby Newman and I love her as an actress, but she hasn’t really gotten a hold of Lulu. She is acting generic, and a little bit plastic. It almost seems like she doesn’t know who Lulu is, but yet tries to do the best job as she possibly can. I do feel she has the best chemistry with GF, but it doesn’t really feel like Lulu. I still love ER though and I’m willing to wait. God knows we can’t deal with another recast at this point. I’m so loving Liz & AJ, and glad that she saw AJ did NOT cheat on her. Although she should still remember he did lie about it. But anycase I am loving them, and hopefully they will have a long life together! I thought to myself “FINALLY a Monica mention!” when AJ called her. Where is she??? I for one find absolutely nothing wrong with him interacting with his mother and keeping her informed on what is going on with his life. On the contrary, to me it is very endearing and enbetters AJ. Lucy is just sooooo kooky and over the top! (She looked fabulous in that blue & white though.) I love her to bits, but I hope she doesn’t steal ALL of the show once they launch Deception. LOVED Sonny finally telling Milo off about shacking up with his daughter-in-law. Loose in the head or not, Milo should have KNOWN he would not be happy about it. Glad they didn’t sweep it under the rug. Also, I’m glad Sonny didn’t sweep it under the rug that Carly conspired to kill Franco using Sonny. It matters not one bit that it wasn’t their bullet that hit Olivia. The facts still remain, and I’m glad Sonny called Carly on it! Of course he wouldn’t have killed Carly – that bit was a bit ridiculous – but I’m glad they still had it out. I don’t like Connie, but I admit that it was a little silly for Olivia to make up excuses to her about why she couldn’t come and stay with her instead of Sonny. The girls are threading in dangerous territory, being best friends interested in the same man. Kind of wary seeing how it all will go down, NOT excited to see Katonnie re-emerge…. Ava looks amazing. That’s about it. I agree with the ones who said that it’s majorly weird and a crying shame that THESE people are now invading the Q mansion, and are the only ones there in scenes. It’s just weird. And now AVA is living there aswell??? Plus the “sleeping with the enemy” thing is just bizarre. I just really hope it’s true that Ava plans on killing F once she gets a hold of the company. That’s the only plausible explanation I can think of to why she would be doing this.

It’s like Ron C. is throwing the audience a bone, but it’s just a milk bone, not a real steak bone LOL Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
