Sonny wards off Johnny far from Olivia
If all that happens it will be a long summer.
The personality transplant I saw today. No emotional response to either parent. No smiles, nothing to indicate he cares at all. But, as far as bad attitude, are we really going to notice a difference? Michael was always a spoiled brat. Now, he'll be the spoiled brat everyone doubles over to coddle & please, sacrificing their own happiness for. It'll be nauseating.The rest looks interesting, assuming it's written right. Holly's return had no zest. It was ho-hum. The only thing that made it worthwhile was Tracy being there. Whoever the father turns out to be, I'm sure she gave him up because the child support wouldn't have been enough to warrant keeping him around. So, he probably is Mac's son. He's the only one who doesn't have an abundance of wealth & the irony of the con artist being his son would be cause for yet another father/son conflict. I wish the writers would work out their daddy issues some other way.
You know that might be worth watching : Mac having a son that he never knew existed who just happens to be a con man. Imagine the fallout from Maxie.
She'd be attracted to her step-brother. Not to mention, Lulu would suddenly find him irresistable... Could be fun.
Oh Yeah! but don't forget Mac : worrying about Maxie and her step, trying to make him give up his con man ways, the frustration etc. Hope it happens this way.

I wish the writers would work out their daddy issues some other way. Ditto to all of the above. Especially about Michael being a spoiled brat....always have been and always will be I'm sure. And Holly's return....I'd rather undergo a double root canal then sit and watch any of that storyline. And you are right about Tracy making it worthwhile. Thats the only reason I didn't ff. Go back to sleep Holly. You ain't got it goin on no more. Its more exciting when Anna makes her cameo appearances.
If today is any indication they are going to drag out this story about Ethan's parents as loonng as they can. I'm already bored to death. Perhaps TPTB haven't been able to come up with any more. You know the got Emma Samms to come back but probably didn't have the story all figured out beyond this point, so they have to drag it out while they think up the rest.
You got it! They're probably trying to figure out which papa would irritate the audience the most & pick him. Bringing Emma Samms back should have been more interesting than it was. Holly is a has-been & the story just makes it more obvious. It's the same as what bringing Brenda back would be like. Alot of hope, but getting down to it, there's no place for her. Even temporarily. The show & Luke have outgrown Holly's nonsense. Just do what Lulu said today. Get another paternity test done without Tracy knowing about it. Then, both women & their ulterior motives will be muted. But, one good thing's come out of it. Seeing the game Luke's made out of something that seems really important to Ethan should show him that Lucky's assessment of Luke isn't too far from the mark, even if it was said in a whiny tantrum.
They need to go to Mercy to have it done, and just go do it. Not plan it or anything. Tracy is just waiting for them to look like they're up to something and she'll be on to them.As for Lucky, he knows his father really well but he needs to live his own life and not let his Dad's games bother him. They will never agree they are too different and neither one will change.
The other downside of Ethan not being Luke's kid is the fact that Lulu will get interested in him & we'll never stop hearing Lucky ranting and raving about Ethan. His older brother routine is almost as weirdly annoying as Claudia's freaky thing with Johnny.
Lucky needs to go on a trip for awhile and let his family be in peace.
Yeah, a long trip. I love Greg Vaughan, but Lucky needs to learn to let go of the iron grip on the people he loves or he'll end up as controlling and paranoid as Sonny.
Or next to Anthony at the loony bin. Now there's a storyline if they get desperate.
Unfortunately, yesterday's show only highlights how the hype of a returning character is only hype. Holly's return is just plain boring. Here she is again expecting to be paid for the information about Ethan. Another DNA test would definitively answer the question and the glass she was using yesterday could provide her DNA. The last time she was in town, she wanted to be paid to provide the antidote for the toxin that had been released. The character is pathetic. I would like to see Tracy stop ranting and raving, do some digging and put a stop to Holly and her con. Tracy's too good a character to be screaming like a shrew. Ethan didn't want another DNA test, he wanted to hear what Holly had to say about the situation. Hello, why would anyone believe anything she had to say. She will probably keep going back and forth between Luke and Robert as the father to stretch this line out. Get another test and a third one if necessary, but relying on Holly to provide the truth is just an insult to the viewer's intelligence.
I wanted to scream at Tracy myself, let Holly finish at least 1 sentance. If Tracy interupts constantly she doesn't even have a chance to answer. It's very annoying. But there is something else: perhaps Tracy has been written these lines because they haven't figured out yet what Holly's game is.And Ethan do the DNA get it over with and just go don't plan it because Tracy will catch on. I don't know for sure if Tracy messed with the results but she sure acts like it.
In 27ish years I have never been so bored by a Luke Spencer story. I am very disappointed in the writers. GH has been my favorite show for so may years. Not favorite soap, but TV show. They don't get it that we where there, we watched & we remember the stories from years ago & none of this BS is making since. I'm really very sad about it. All these years, (more than 30) & for the first time ever I'm changing the channel alot during what was my favorite show.
Perhaps that's the plan, drive the viewers away. No viewers, no show, and TPTB will be saving lots of $$$$. And we're just left with our memories of what was.What a depressing thought, I really really hope it's not true.
I keep hearing thats what the plan is.. to drive us away. Why not just pull the plug if thats the goal?
If they pull the plug it's their fault. If viewership drops it's our fault.
Everything said here is true. There is not one story on this show that is truly watchable. I get that once in a while you'll get a story that people just hate. That happens. But, to have every single story on the show just awful, it's really hard to believe this isn't part of a plan to destroy the show.
More updates:Jax is keeping a big secret from Carly (his knowledge of the truth behind Michael's shooting). Sonny will try to help Micheal piece together the year of his life he lost. A tragic event will threaten to blow the secret Claudia's keeping about Micheal's accident sky-high." "A big adventure will reconnect [Jason and Sam]. Will they be able to recapture the love they once had?" "We will learn more about Rebecca. Nikolas obviously has feelings for her, and we will learn that so, too, does Ethan." "We plan to play a series of medical mysteries with Robin and Patrick at the center. Jeopardy to Matt forces Patrick and Robin to become medical sleuths. We've already started the first one, which features Martha Byrne. We hope to have guest stars for each of these stories." "When Holly leaves, Luke and Tracy will deal with the bombshell that Ethan is Luke's son (???!!!!!)." (It seems sly Guza has been giving the soap rags conflicting info, kudos to him...which is the truth?)"Ethan has been blindsided and wrestles with his feelings. Only Lulu accepts him as her new brother, and these two will forge a bond, while there will continue to be real conflict between Lucky and Ethan." "Maxie and Spinelli will finally get together in a very unlikely but Spinelli-esque way. We'll build the romance throughout the summer and shockingly, karaoke will play a major part. Lulu has a major love story in her future." "Olivia and Johnny instantly combust. Their chemistry makes them irresistible to each other, but there are major consequences for all concerned, especially Sonny and Claudia." "Kristina is now a hot blooded teen who will give Alexis a run for her money. Alexis wll be involved in a political scandal which threatens her relationship to Kristina and adds to Kristina acting out big time." "[Liz and Lucky] will continue to grow close, attempting to resurrect their once story book relationship. Will it work? We will see Liz helping Lucky to get past his anger about Ethan." "The Q's finally get their hearts desire: Micheal returns to the fold. What will they do to hold on to Micheal and what will Sonny, Carly, and Jason do when they try?"**Connie Towers (Helena) back around June 4th; she and Rebecca have a meeting. **Summer Stories: JaSam adventure, Alexis/Kristina and a scandal, Ethan is Luke's--Michael tries to deal with his life now, Robin and Patrick try to solve many medical mysteries. Ethan takes a shine to ...Rebecca, much to Nik's dismay. Liz/Lucky rekindle their relationship. More to come!
All of that sounds really intriging but if the writing isn't good then we're right back here.
I agree. I hope that Holly's part in the paternity story is over soon. She's just dull this time. It's not just what she's doing. It's how she's doing it. She's flat & there's no expression in either her face or her voice. This nonsense of Luke trying to get the truth out of her is stupid, too. Get another DNA test & kick her back to Singapore!
After watching Ethan and Lulu talking yesterday I started wondering if it was possible for the 2 of them to get their DNA checked, if they had the same father wouldn't that show up?
Yes, it would. I didn't understand why they didn't do it when they were in the hospital. That would make the story more interesting. If they went quietly & got the test & just when it looks like Luke's about to give in to Holly's demands, they tell him he doesn't have to because they have proof Ethan is/isn't his son.
Also it would be an excellant end-run around Tracy. Did I hear right yesterday, did she admit to Lulu that she paid someone off and didn't know if Ethan was her brother?
Yes. She paid a lab tech to, "make sure the results are negative." But she never looked at the real test results. I guess it's how her concience deals with the fact that she's meddling in something that's none of her business just because she's jealous. But, she only admitted the truth because Lulu tricked her & because she realized too late that she only sucked Luke in deeper with Holly than if she'd left it alone.
It just doesn't seem like Tracy, to be able to know the truth and not bother. No she likes to know all the dirt so she can get the upper hand.
I know. That's exactly what I thought when she said that. The Tracy I know would be dying of curiosity & like you said, she'd want the upper hand, especially with Holly. She doesn't trust Holly as far as she can throw her & she had an oppurtunity to one up her & passed? Never happen. The writers blew it.
I'm Ireally, really curious about what is going on with the writers. Are they on strike or what? There's no forethought, no history being observed, the characters and how they react etc. is being ignored. Maybe it's like we were talking the other night about the show being dropped...maybe they're trying to get the established (more expensive ) actors to quit so they can save money.
I hope not, but it does look suspicious.
The Tracy of old would have known the truth about the paternity test and used it. It is beyond stupid that Luke and Ethan won't take another test, but want the "truth" from Holly. Like that's going to happen.The classic was Holly telling Luke that she'll only give him the truth if he pays her with Tracy's money. We are about to see how stupid Luke can be. We all know that Tracy is jealous, but then with Luke's actions who wouldn't be. If Holly was so in to Luke she would have come back sooner and gone after him. All she wants is money and doesn't care who she cons to get it.
The whole thing is dumb and completely out of character.
A Return? RUMORS are claiming that Ted King aka Lorenzo Alcazar is returning to General Hospital this summer. So far no
Quote:The whole thing is dumb and completely out of character. Ditto. I say just do whatever the heck needs to be done to get Holly back to where she came from. I've been ff whenever she's on but it seems like the fast forwarding don't move fast enough to get her off
And lose the I hate mommy routine. It was old the first 2 days. I get that he doesn't want to be treated like a baby, but someone should (namely Jason, the guy who's been through all of this) tell this kid, "Look, you were in a coma for over a year. You were a little boy. Your mom's having a hard time adjusting & you have to accept that & stop the smart mouth. If you want to be treated like an adult, start acting like one & show your mother some respect."
Yea, Alcazar! I just knew Jason really did not kill him. I am happy about this news. But nothing else really excited me.
I think I'm likin Johnny and Olivia together. They were cute today when they bumped into each other at the hotel. Definitely some chemistry there
I think they're really hot. I've read that people are having a fit over them but I don't see why, they are both consenting ADULTS,, not married and living on thier own. It is no ones business but their own. Everyone else is doing what they want and living their lives, why shouldn't these 2?
Sonny's reaction was a little silly, especially if she's just a friend. And Claudia, well, she's just insane. So, her reaction, I could've predicted. I think most could.As for Alcazar coming back, I hope so. The show just isn't the same without him in the mix. But, it could also be as he always jokes in interviews, the third brother, Fredo. Claudia's hit man's name is Fredo.
I think Sonny thinks he owns every woman in his life. As for Claudia, well, I think she is jealous! she wants him for herself at her beck and call. She can do as she pleases but he has to be under her thumb. The way she reacts is more like a woman in love not brother/sister. I wonder if down the line we'll find out she's not Johnny's sister at all. Her mom pulled a fast one and that's why Anthony treats her so badly.
Maybe, but then we'd have another go nowhere "Who's the daddy?" story like Sam's. It's bizarre that she's not the least bit curious who her father is. With all this talk of Alcazar coming back, I've often thought he was Sam's father. Some of the things Alexis knew about him were things only someone close to him would know. Wouldn't it be funny if she was Sofie & he just didn't recognize her because she aged or had plastic surgery? The plot possibilities of that are endless. Could whatever's left of Sam & Jason's relationship survive that? Not to mention that Alexis is the DA. Ms. Grahn & Mr. King have always had great chemistry.
You've lost me I don't know the first thing about that story but it sounds good.
When Alcazar & Carly were first together, he told her of a girlfriend, Sofie that he had when he was a teenager, around the same time Alexis had Sam. I just thought that making him Sam's father would be fun. Knowing that would mean Jason wouldn't be able to kill him a second time which would drive Jason crazy.

I also enjoyed the scene with Kate and Olivia when Kate made Olivia admit to having something going on with Johnny. That was a pretty cool scene and I actually enjoyed watching Kate having fun teasing her. And when she said Aunt Gert (I think it was Gert or whoever) would have a fit I thought I would die laughing. Good job Kate.
Speaking of daddy's, I like to think that Durant is not Carly's father. her mother was a [censored]..after all.I would like to think that maybe Stefan, Stavros, Mikkos, Chikkos, and whatever other Cassadine there was, used Booby's services, and knocked her up. Can you imagine if Carly turned out to be Alexis' sister???She would be Sam's Aunt, and Morgan and nuMichael would be Cassadines. If Mikkos was her daddy, what fun a real headwriter could have.!!!!
Now that would so awesome and fun!
Yes, it would. Alexis would go back to breathing into a paper bag!
