Thank goodness for half naked Derek. I don’t get why no one mentions AJ. Was the character claimed by Prospect Park as well? And we are back to Mykill? Yo, idiot, your mother owns a hotel, can’t you ask her for a job? Ask cousin Lulu if you can run the Haunted Star. Plotpoint much? Sam did look amazing today and so playful. And does Franco still care about ELQ? You need money? Sell your shares in ELQ. Harass Tracy. Ask her how sh abandons ship just like that. Log in to Reply Proteus99 October 16, 2013 Plot point much? No offense, but a story does need plot. I understand the whole character driven story thing, but don’t you think that there is motivation behind this request? Personal motivation = character driven story = plot point. The distinction isn’t as black and white as you want it to be. If Mikey works in a hotel I’m pretty sure his storyline (plot) would be as boring as watching paint dry. Who wants to watch story where Mikey is checking guests in and out of a hotel room? I’m pretty sure 99.9% of viewers would rather not see such drivel. Log in to Reply TV Gord October 16, 2013 Yes, Proteus, but a job at The Metro Court would give him a pass key, so he would be able to let all of the characters who want to come and go as they please in other people’s rooms do just that. Besides, we wouldn’t have to see him at work. We would just know that he had a job. When was the last time we saw Olivia at work?

Log in to Reply Peterascal October 16, 2013 I am glad they’re addressing Michael and Kiki needing work. Also Diane with Ava was funny. And yes, Sam looked hot! Glad they’re letting her smile again! Log in to Reply Secrets and Lies October 16, 2013 Most noteworthy thing about this episode was how great KM looked. It took months of patient set-up, but the KM/ME chemistry is back and better than ever. McBain who? Log in to Reply Grimm October 17, 2013 Michael wants to work at the Coffee Warehouse…WHERE HE WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD. You’d think that would trigger some flashbacks given how fragile Michael’s mental state is portrayed. And I def take the absence of the idea of AJ and Michael starting their own enterprise as an indication that AJ is to be jettisoned. Sad. Sam looked good smiling and flirting and displaying the “girls” with Silas. Gal reminded me of a in her prime Bobbi Spencer at the hospital. When KiKi interrupted Silas and Sam I thought she was about to compliment Sam’s cleavage display -which would have been consistent with her initial portrayal as a semi-rude New Yawker. Coulda been a great improvisation. Technically, I thought the Hospital Sam/Silas scene was oddly blocked. There was no sense of where they were in the hospital and the characters never moved out of the little area, even when joined by Kiki. Felt claustrophobic. Probably a concession to budget and not having to change lighting set up. I liked seeing Morgan sprout some body hair. Wish Derek had some too (even the armpits were smooth), perhaps a concession to what clearly must be his full body surgery to hide his identity and de-age him. Electrolysis was part of the package. I give the Franco/Derek exchange a kudos for mentioning Buffy Season 3 as a point of conversation. Geektastic. Log in to Reply logan_echolls October 17, 2013 No matter how much Ron tries, Franco and Carly will never work. Just like 1/2 years ago, Shawn was hired by Jason to protect Carly FROM Franco. Shouldn’t have made him Franco. Franco claims Derek has no respect for Carly. No Franco you don’t. You got her son raped! Too bad Lucas couldn’t come to Port Charles for the DNA test. That is a huge missed opportunity. Maxie desperately needs her cousin and Felix needs some booty. I better not see my Liz propping freaking KiKi at the hospital. But I am glad she is at the hospital. I DO NOT want to see that heifer singing at the Haunted Star. Also thank goodness Michael is not working at the Haunted Star. he might get the idea to have KiKi sing there! Michael should be working at the MetroCourt. Why would he work at the place he was shot in the head. Why don’t Michael just concentrate on school and get a degree. He’s rich, he doesn’t need to work. That’s stupid. Log in to Reply blake3b October 17, 2013 I thought Laura Wright over a knocked out guy in a ring was when she was on Guiding Light at first. Dinah shot Hart and Hart had that weird boxing scene with Cassie and Dinah there. Log in to Reply SZima October 18, 2013 I don’t care how hard they try, I will never like Carly with “Franco.” Even though they tried to make Franco “normal” by removing a brain tumor, Carly would never, NEVER be with the man responsible for the rape of her son, the man who threatened her daughter, the man who made her best friend, Jason, think he (Franco) had raped his bride. CarTooni made the biggest mistake of their careers by bring back the much-hated Franco character. How could they do that to Roger? :angry: Log in to Reply Yoryla October 20, 2013 LOL! Seems I wasn’t the only one who noticed Julian’s clean shaven armpits! Didn’t think he would be the type! Bwaha. Yeah the Franco crap is epically horrid! But then what else is new! What a sad little episode in the middle of some great ones. Really goes to show that the show is made up by which characters are on. Did like the progress on the Jerome front though. Paging LUCAS!
