April 1st, 2005

Next week on GH...

Monday: A.J. continues to trick Michael. (That's getting old.)
Tuesday: Alexis' petition is shot down in court. (So much for that.)
Wednesday: Durant will stop at nothing to take Sonny down. (Speaking of things that are old.)
Thursday: Jason and Sam are unaware of how close they are to Michael. (DUDE! Find him already!)
Friday: Sam confirms that Carly's visions are more than just wishful thinking. (Okay...more, please....)

Yay! Jason's time in medical school paid off again!

I'd care about Rachel dying if I didn't know that they gave Amy Grabow a contract. Oh, and if I cared.

Darn you, Mac! Courtney was so close! Now A.J.'s going to change his number.

Hey, Sonny? Swearing at Alexis probably won't help you keep custody of Kristina.

Memo to Reese: renew your birth control prescription.

April 4th, 2005

Hee hee hee. Carly thinks that she can teach Sonny how to be calm. Hee hee hee. And she thinks she's qualified because she was committed. Not only is that absurd, but she was faking the whole time. Also, I'm not sure the woman who keeps thinking she's seeing her supposedly dead son is a paragon of sanity.

Apparently we're going to find out more about Reese later in the week. It'll explain a little about why she feels sympathy for Sonny.

Okay, Jason, go to the Bahamas! No, don't take Sam with you!

I love that Courtney's all, "Eh, Rachel might die; I might as well tell everyone everything." She stopped worrying about Rachel pretty quickly.

April 5th, 2005

A.J. is eeeeeeevil. No, that's not news, I just wanted to mention it again.

I love how the judge throws out Alexis' petition, and then two seconds later, Sonny basically threatens to take Kristina away from Alexis. HELLO! Alexis, go back to the judge and tell him what just happened!

At first, I wanted to thank the person who planted drugs on Diego. Then I found out it was Durant. Now I'm torn.

Wow, Courtney might be smarter than I give her credit for. Maybe.

April 6th, 2005

I think it's hilarious that Reese isn't upset that Jason may have killed people, she's just mad that someone saw him.

Speaking of Reese, I call foul on her not remembering what her son looks like. That may be the most ridiculous thing I've heard from a character on this show. And that's saying a LOT. Some writer needs to be smacked over the head for that.

Hee. Oregano. Hee hee hee.

Stop being pretentious and pronouncing "marijuana" the Spanish way, Alcazar.

I was going to ask why Alexis was focusing on Greek stories, but then I remembered that she's part Greek, so it kind of makes sense.

I should marry a lawyer, so we can fight with legal terms, like Alexis and Ric. That would be fun.

Why is Durant meeting with people in confessionals? I would think that he would immediately burst into flames if he entered a church.

April 7th, 2005

Dang, Alan. Maybe you should talk to Alexis. She knows where you can find a good therapist.

I hate that "missing party passes by searchers without them seeing each other" cliché. It was bad enough last year with Nikolas and Emily.

I cry foul on Reese again. She has a picture of her son! No way has she forgotten what he looks like! That was so stupid.

Hi, Coleman. Meh.

Wow, Monica became convinced that Rachel killed A.J. pretty quickly, there.

Sam is showing less cleavage in that bikini than she was in the shirt she was wearing yesterday.

April 8th, 2005

Next week on GH...

Monday: Reese admits her feelings to Sonny. (Bleh. Whatever.)
Tuesday: Alcazar doesn't trust Durant. (Who does?)
Wednesday: Sonny fears that history may repeat itself. (Nice and vague.)
Thursday: Courtney realizes that Rachel is telling the truth. (Heh, I bet Rachel starts telling people that A.J. is alive.)
Friday: Carly witnesses a shocking sight at Sonny's place. (Wouldn't it be ironic if she caught him with Reese, like she caught him with Alexis?)

Nikolas is back May 6th; Helena is back April 28th. Yay! what? Is Michael going to jump in a cab and go to the airport? Is he going to call Sonny? Is he going to get home some time in the next week? Or are the writers going to find a way to drag this plot out even longer? I'm banking on that last one.

Okay, let's get rid of Durant. Soon.

Hey, Rachel actually told the truth for once! Too bad no one's going to believe her.

I'm sorry...Sonny called Jason and made him leave the Bahamas to tell him to leave the country? Jason: GET A NEW JOB.

April 11th, 2005

Dude! Durant tried to kill Reese! He really is evil!

Speaking of that, note to women who hang out with Sonny: take the bus.

Apparently "I'm emotionally involved with you" is the new "I'm falling in love with you."

Maybe Courtney should tell Carly or Jason about Rachel living in the Bahamas with A.J.?

I really hope that Michael is on to A.J. and only went back because he has some scheme cooked up. Or am I giving the 9-year-old too much credit?

April 12th, 2005

I wonder if A.J. is losing his mind. That would explain a lot.

I kind of wish Sonny had told Reese, "I'm emotionally involved with you." That would've been funny.

If Durant didn't try to kill Reese, then who did? That's why I'm inclined to think he's lying to Confessional Guy. He followed her, after all. Why not try to kill her and try to pin it on Sonny? Whatever, liar.

Elizabeth must be insane for entrusting her son to her unstable best friend. Emily's going to scar that kid for life.

April 13th, 2005

I can't decide whether it's a good thing or a bad thing that the whole Michael/A.J. situation could hinge on Courtney. I mean, basically, if she tells Jason that A.J. is possibly alive and in the Bahamas, Jason will put everything together and figure it out. Should everything be depending on Courtney here? I'll have to think about it.

Oh, by the way, I don't care when Courtney and Jax get married.

I can't expend any more energy on Emily. Next!

You know, it's nice that Alexis is going to therapy, but, really, of all the people on this show who need it, she's at the bottom of the list.

April 14th, 2005

HA HA HA! A.J.'s an idiot. Dude, if you're trying to hide out, and someone answers the phone whose voice you don't recognize, HANG UP. He's so busted.

Yeah, Sonny, I'm sure no one will look for Reese at your house.

I'm so glad Sam and Jason have set up a date to make a baby together. That just warms my heart.

A lollipop toast. So adorable.

April 15th, 2005

Next week on GH...

Monday: Carly catches Sonny and Reese in bed together. (I'm sure there's a perfectly reasonable, not at all strange explanation for that.)
Tuesday: A.J. pulls Alan into his cruel scheme. (Hey, at least Alan gets a plot.)
Wednesday: Alcazar tells Carly that she's not seeing things straight. (Um...okay.)
Thursday: A.J.'s behavior sickens Skye. (I can't wait for Skye to smack A.J. upside the head for everything he's done.)
Friday: Sonny and Carly try to get through to a brainwashed Michael. (Who cares? At least he's back!)

Good luck getting out of this one, A.J.

Whatever, Monica. I'll believe you're selling that house when I see it.

Thanks for being helpful, Courtney!

Yes, I'd just love to see Sonny and Reese have sex. Thanks for asking.

April 18th, 2005

You know what I'm happiest about with this Carly recast? She can actually act. Imagine that, Natalia.

I really don't care who Durant is working with/for. I just want him to go away.

No, Reese, Sonny really doesn't care that Carly saw you guys together. It's not the first time she's seen him with another woman. Though, I should warn you, the last time that happened, she drove her car into the lake and faked her death. Oh, and Alexis got pregnant. I was really serious about warning you to take your birth control pills.

I'm not sure what A.J. thinks is going to happen, but I'm sure it'll be interesting. At least, I hope so.

April 19th, 2005

I knew something was fishy when we never saw the face of the psychiatrist Alexis was supposedly seeing! I'm guessing she didn't have anything to do with the car bomb, though. She's not crazy enough to try to kill Reese. Um, at least, I hope not.

Yeah, Reese, Sonny's a real prince, isn't he?

Sonny left Morgan in the house without Leticia, when Max and Reese were the only adults around? He really IS a bad parent.

How did Dillon and Georgie get to the attic without passing Alan and A.J. on the stairs? Maybe they went back to Kelly's first, since they seem to live there now.

April 20th, 2005

I love Jason and A.J. playing cat and mouse. Also, Jason's totally going to win, because A.J.'s an idiot.

Amazingly, the writers wrote an Emily scene where I didn't completely hate her - the scene where she thinks Brook, Dillon, and Georgie are on drugs. "Please tell me it's not speed." Hee.

So...Alexis has lost her mind.

I wish Skye had hit A.J. harder. And then refused to help him no matter what. And then told him where to go.

Enough with the Jason/Sam romantic interludes. We get it - they're going to have a baby and get married and yada yada yada. Whatever.

Also, enough with the flashbacks and voiceover memories. Can we not tell a linear story around here?

April 21st, 2005

Dang, everyone's playing each other. I love it.

I'm sorry, did Alan just lock Monica in the freezer? Does he not remember that the last time someone locked someone else in the freezer, Sage was murdered? Whatever.

Awww, poor Emily. Everyone loves her and wants to make sure she's okay, and no one will leave her alone and stop asking her if she's all right. I just feel so bad for her! Ug, shut up, Princess.

I bet Rachel will be mad that A.J. was in town and didn't come see her.

April 22nd, 2005

Dang. The Quartermaines are bordering on Cassadine-like dysfunction. I

So, when exactly did A.J. cross the threshold from kind of crazy to full-blown whack job? Also, I bet he's paralyzed. Come on, it's a soap.

Why in the world did Reese and Ric tell Durant that they have him on tape? That was stupid. Hey, Reese, remember how Durant might have tried to kill you? Yeah, you might have wanted to keep that in mind.

Dear writers: when Jax divorced Alexis, HE WAS WITH CHLOE. Seriously, does NO ONE except me remember Chloe?

April 23rd, 2005

Next week on GH... (don't have specific dates, so I'll just list them)

April 25th, 2005

Yay! Murder mystery! Let's see - the suspects are Jason (of course), Sonny, Carly, Emily, Monica (a case could be made for her), Courtney, Jax (a case could be made for him), Ric (ditto), and Rachel. I'm going to have to go with Rachel, since she's the most expendable, and no one really cares what happens to her.

I wonder if A.J. knew that Ric is Kristina's stepfather. I don't think he'd try to lie to him like that if he knew.

You know, A.J. probably could've made the insanity defense stick. In the end, he was pretty crazy.

Why was there already a pillow on the floor? That doesn't seem sanitary.

April 26th, 2005

Nice try attempting to get me to feel sympathetic for A.J. in the end, there. Didn't work.

Where the heck is Alexis? What a random, out of the blue plot twist.

I'm sorry, but Dylan Cash isn't doing very well playing "lost to the world." He looks more "I'm tired and I don't feel like talking to anyone right now."

Why was Rachel completely gone for the first 54 minutes, and then suddenly made a reappearance as the autopsy results were announced? These people are not helping to support my theory that she killed A.J.! Also, where has Skye been? Shouldn't she be at the hospital, worrying about Alan?

I'm guessing that A.J. was already dead when Carly went back to his room. Otherwise, she singlehandedly ruined that murder mystery.

April 27th, 2005

Yay, I was right about Carly. That's one suspect down. Actually, two, I think, because I doubt that Jason would be worrying so much about covering Carly's tracks if he had to worry about covering his own.

Wow, Maurice Benard really does have Wednesdays off. Where the heck did Sonny go?

I love that Elizabeth, of all people, was the one who tried to talk Ric out of suspecting Carly. I wonder if she would have done that if she'd known that Carly was at home, calling her Nurse Lizzie.

Oh, great, do I have to deal with Sam's ego again? Shut up, Sam.

Luke! 'Nuff said.

Yes, Tracy, it's very smart to drink whatever Luke gives you without asking any questions.

April 28th, 2005

Dude, just put Carly in jail. She deserves it for being that dumb. Oh, and she's not going to be happy when she finds out that Elizabeth helped out with that arrest.

Helena! Awesome.

Hee hee, I love Dillon. And Luke. And Tracy, when she's with Luke and/or Dillon and is doing something useful for once.

I'd say something about Luke's plan to use Emily to lure Helena out of hiding being dumb and having potential to backfire, but I don't care what happens to Emily, so it's all fine with me.

April 29th, 2005

Next week on GH...

Emily finally tells Nikolas that she was raped. (Like they said - finally!)
Sonny issues Ric an ultimatum. (Okay....)
Michael is disturbed by an unpleasant memory about Carly. (That could be any number of memories.)
The secret Alexis has been keeping isn't safe from Durant. (I'm guessing that's about the whole confessional/bombing/Sonny thing.)
Alexis and Durant join forces. (Look out, Sonny.)

Way to traumatize a kid, cops.

I kind of like Alcazar and Skye working together. It's something new, at least.

What the heck is Alexis up to? And is Ric going to go to London? That'd be cool.
