Here’s the Scoop! 06.15.09
JOlivia… more to come? That’s the RUMOR! I actually like them together. Does this pairing have the legs to go the distance? Surely Dante’s arrival will throw a wrench at the “mechanic.” Weigh in!
What’s the Mayor going public with? It’s SPOILED to be “startling.” Will he out his affair with the DA? Do we really care about this story except for it including Martha Byrne (Andrea Floyd)? What exactly do Ric and Andrea have cooking?
Was Rick Hearst given a proper send off? RUMOR has it there wasn’t enough time. But there was enough time for a little Hearst –Byrne interaction. What’s the deal? One RUMOR says Ric wanted the DA job back and was using Andrea to get it. Maybe “using” isn’t the right word. The SCOOP says Andrea is the one to tell Ric about Alexis and Mayor Floyd’s indiscretion. Was Ric planning on using that information to get his old job back? Really Ric? You’re no angel; in fact, you slept with your wife’s daughter around the same time.
Alexis… finally a story for Alexis Davis. Finally! It’s been much too long and the last few stories she got were lack luster in my opinion. RUMORS say this is a storyline her fans can and will get behind.
Back to the Mayor… whether we should care or not, we’re already in the middle of it all. The mistress is dead and it seems that before the death certificate was even signed the family retained counsel and filed a malpractice suit. Was this really the way to go? Are we not invested enough in the Mayor or his mistress to give a damn? Yes, Scrubs, Matt and Alexis are involved as well as the above mentioned Martha Byrne but really was this the smart way to go? I COULD have gotten behind it if we had seen more of the Mayor in the past few weeks/month. A few throw away scenes to remind us of his existence would have helped since now we’re supposed to be invested in his extra-marital affairs. But silly me, that would have required a little more balance and while Drew Garrett has been a welcome addition, it’s been the Michael show and nothing else.
Is this going to be a who killed the Mayor’s mistress storyline? Huh? Brianna Hughes died on Matt’s operating table, right? Yes, but as the doc’s said her injuries don’t match a slip and bump in the shower. COULD it be that someone entered the room while the Mayor was getting his lover some aspirin? Could that person have added to Ms. Hughes injuries thus causing her death?
Speaking of the Michael show… Sonny’s sperm produces some great kids! I know, I know, Michael has a traumatic brain injury and Kristina is your classic ignored and acting out teenager. Boo Hoo! Tread carefully Guza. While Garrett and Ainsworth are holding their own, the material better keep up. In the very recent past, characters we should sympathize with have most fans hating them (i.e. Robin’s PPD). I don’t want to hate Michael and his outbursts, I want to understand them. As far little Miss Kristina goes… Lexi Ainsworth is growing on me but again, tread carefully. I’m assuming I’m not supposed to hate the teen but understand that Daddy ignored her and Mommy pushes her too hard. So far all I see is a brat, a well acted brat, but a brat nonetheless.
COULD Sonny actually fall for his wife? Will it all fall out from under him when the truth comes out? Do we care anymore? I’ve been trying to stay positive about GH lately, really trying and apparently failing miserably at it. This story in particular irks me on so many levels. First, it makes Jason look stupid and second, I HATE ALL THESE SECRETS that aren’t really secrets. When more than 50% of Port Charles knows the truth, it’s no longer a secret.
Ethan, Rebecca, Helena… The only good part is Helena. I’m sorry but my vow of positivity cannot apply to this storyline. Everyone thinks Luke did his typical skip town bit except Tracy who thinks her hubby went off with his English rose. She’s even considering filing for divorce in his absence. Will Ethan talk her out of it? Will Lulu? No biggie, right? Luke always skips town when he’s been there for an extended amount of time. The Port Charles scenery must get boring. Anyways, Luke isn’t with Holly as RUMORS say Helena grabbed her nemesis. Luke gets bested by Helena? No way! Not my Luke Spencer… wait, this isn’t my Luke Spencer. Go ahead Helena, do your worst. As I’ve mentioned, Helena may not have been pulling Rebecca’s strings before but she wants to now and she’ll use Ethan to do it. When Helena shows Ethan proof that she’s got his daddy, he must convince Rebecca to go along with Helena’s plan.
CRAZY and RANDOM RUMORS… Hearst was dropped to recurring due to “budgetary” reasons yet we have a few newbies hitting the canvas. WORD on the street is that even more are headed our way in the shape of teens to befriend Michael and Kristina. Who’s Kate’s investor? Jax MAY have initially bankrolled the mag but someone else is helping Kate out. Did the Fashionista steal from her own stash and what will Jax have to say about it? Karaoke hospital? Who’s getting on the mic? Is Tracy hiring Sam to find Luke?
