Here’s the Scoop!
Valentine’s Day Episode… Is everyone in the mood for love? Remember, this is supposed to be a standalone episode dedicated to St. Valentine’s Day where the lovebirds of PC can get their groove on. RUMOR has it Molly Lansing steps up her quest to bring Jason and Sam closer together by setting up a romantic evening. Lulu puts on a sexy red dress and meets Dante at the hospital which was RUMORED to be his release day. Scrubs were also RUMORED to be a part of the love fest and Spixie SHOULD factor in there somewhere however the latest is that Maxie is in an accident (not sure what day the actual accident occurs on). Is Lucky somehow involved? He's a drunk, of course he's involved. READ MORE

WOW, wow, wow… Jonathan Jackson you just won the Emmy! I won’t repeat what Perkie and J. Bernard both said so well already but I could not kick off this blog without giving JJ the kudos he deserves. Amazing performance, incredible performance, I just don’t have enough words.
Hells Bells is coming back and it should spell trouble for Lucky, Elizabeth and Nikolas. Seems to me that these three make enough trouble all on their own but Helena is known for making a bad situation worse and that’s exactly what the psycho granny is SPOILED to be doing.
Valentine’s Day Episode… RUMORED to be a standalone episode and centered around some of the couples on the show. Yes JaSam fans, they are one of the couples featured. RUMORS say Mac and Alexis MAY also get a few scenes. Lulu and Dante are the new break out couple so they will be featured as well and I am hearing Scrubs and Spixie also appear. READ MORE
Ok, so I was wrong. Last week, I said one of the episodes was the one that Jonathan Jackson should submit for his Emmy. Clearly, today's episode should be the one he submits and wins.
Talk about raw passion and emotion. It was all there. Anger, sadness, heartbreak and disappointment. I also think Rebecca Herbst did a bang up job. The fear, the desperation and the lies to try to save her hide.
By contrast, Tyler Christopher spent the episode looking like he was mentally reading the ingredients on a bottle of ketchup, except for a brief moment when he had a line of water coming down his face. It was as if suddenly the make up department realized that he needed to look invested and pulled out the bottle of Visine. READ MORE

Jonathan Jackson is an arsonist.
How else can one describe the blazing inferno the actor set off on today's episode of General Hospital where Lucky (Jackson) directly confronted his lifelong love Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and his brother Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) about sleeping with each other behind his back?
Jackson elevated his performance to epic proportions that might as well have been from the stage of a Greek tragedy, Tennessee Williams or August Wilson play in this episode. It wasn't just good; it was electrifying. After Monday's performance, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences should just put an Emmy for Jackson on layaway and call it a wrap.
From the moment Lucky caught Liz and Nik doing the funky chicken in flagrante delicto, GH's writers and Jackson ratcheted up the tension with a high wire act of jangling nerves, a virtual cat on a hot tin roof. Alone, Lucky was a hot mess, trashing the house he had shared with Elizabeth (formerly the home of his parents, Luke and Laura), oddly confiding both police secrets about the investigation into Claudia's death and his own emotional turmoil to Jason (Steve Burton), and generally was a emotional wreck, careening all over the place like a pinball.

I wasn't happy with Lucky going over to Jason's and basically telling him all the evidence he has in the Claudia case. First off, why was it necessary to pre-warn Jason? Whose side is Lucky on? And secondly, by telling Jason that Maxie is a witness, doesn't than endanger Maxie's life? Although, I will give Jonathan Jackson credit for having Lucky seem so wild and bewildered in that scene. It was almost like he had ants crawling under his skin. READ MORE

I’m all caught up on GH and ready to dish! First, welcome back Jonathan Jackson! I know he’s been back for a bit now and I know most GH fans are happy the original recipe Lucky Spencer returned to his Port Chuck roots but for me, there has been something lacking. The topic was discussed on a recent ABC Podcast and I just have to say that the Lucky who is all cracked out after seeing Elizabeth and Nikolas together is the JJ I’ve been waiting for. My roomie and I were discussing this very topic last night and some of you may remember that she is a HUGE Greg Vaughan fan but even she admitted after those scenes, she would have liked to see Jackson take on Lucky’s addiction the first go around.
Look for Lucky to not hide his addiction this go around. He’s telling Lulu that he’s fallen off the wagon today. RUMORS have Lulu and Dominic trying to pick him up and dust him off. Can they? Nikolas and Elizabeth will get a piece of his mind but will it be a clear head or a cloudy drunken mess? Can Lucky continue to play Daddy in his current state? SPOILERS say Elizabeth is melting down at work but I’m not sure Liz fans should get their panties in a bunch just yet. The nurse MAY break but she shouldn’t be headed to Shadybrook. READ MORE
