Alfredo from Humpty Dumpty is Back! Oh, so am I!

There is a lot to recap but practically nothing to connect GH to House other than the little tidbits thrown our way from Dr. Patrick Drake. Oh, and Cock Fighting Roof Dude Alfredo from "Humpty Dumpty" is back on the GH canvas! :-) Yes, young Ignacio Serrichio is back as Diego Alcazar. And that's a GOOD thing.

As predicted, the city survived the Monkey Flu pretty much in tact.

Stray and random characters died and a couple of main players went to see Dr. House at the Great Clinic Hours Session in the Sky.

Sadly, there were no Cow Worshippers, Syphilitic Poetry Ladies or Hilarious Pregnant Girls Who are Nearly Too Stupid to Live*. (*I had to add her in there because she is, hands down, my favourite Clinic Patient. You remember, the one with "mono"?)

Sooooo, because there are no House references, I feel compelled to link to this photo from an upcoming episode called "All In". The photos involve poker and tuxedos and silver topped canes. And pianos. Spoilerish? I guess so. Sorta. I mean, it had to happen and there isn't any plotline given away.

Why? What does it have to do with GH? Nothing. They're just there.


ANYway, to get us all caught up quickly.

Courtney dies of Monkey Flu. The last thing she knows is that Jax is not the father of John but Nikolas is. She's furious and wants to tell Nikolas but dies before she can. Jax, because he's a dick, hides the truth from Nikolas but, when bitten by the Exposition Fairy (yes, she bites) let's us in on the Big Sekrit.

Sam's CPD brother, Danny, dies. At the lonely gravesite, Sam lets a hapless Alexis know how much she very, very, very much hates her. (The Doctors gave Alexis the antidote rather than Danny and Danny died before he could get a dose.)

Scorpio and Holly swoop through Port Charles and swoop back out again.

Oddly enough, as hot at those two continue to be.....I'd quite forgotten what truly horrible actors they are. OUCH. O_O


Tracey has kicked Dillon and Georgie (still married) out of the mansion. Georgie has been sekritly in touch with Diego while he's been in jail. He's been paroled and just contacted Georgie this past Friday.

With the teenybots in mind, there is a new gay, er, guy named "Guy". I guess he's being set up to be Lucas' beau but someone in makeup seriously needs to work on the smoker's circles around this kid's eyes. Yikes.

ANYway, evil baddie gay-basher beats the crap outta Guy. Infront of Georgie, Dillon, Lulu and Lucas, Guy gets all huffy and takes off to report it to the PCPD.

Lucas takes a clue and backs Guy up by telling his own story. The one that he was too chickenshit to tell when it happened to him.

Guy thanks him but then tells him to call him up when Lucas figures out just exactly who he is and what his own priorities are.


On the Carly/Littlest Doctor Robin/Hot Dr. House, er, Drake front......Carly and Jax are bonding over "Little" John. (GAH, I wish they wouldn't call the kid that.) Carly and Jax go to the HOTEL THEY OWN for dinner. They happen to be there ase Littlest Doctor Robin and Hot Dr. Drake are there on their first bona fide date. (Robin asked Drake out.)

We get a clear picture of the fact that Robin and Carly not only dislike each other but actively hate each other.

The dialogue, the blocking and everything about it was so heavy handed that (within the fiction) I'm surprised both men didn't simply get up and leave.

During all of this Max the body guard had a hilarious turn guarding Carly. Well done, sir!


Meanwhile, back in Jason/Sam-land, Sam has gone a'hunting her biological mother because, during Danny's prep for burial, they discovered that her DNA doesn't match Danny's.

Why that means SHE'S the adopted one (or that both of them weren't adopted) is unclear but whatever. Run with it.

During that escapade, Alexis reveals to Ric that she had a daughter put up for adoption when she was 16.




Where that came from, I have no idea, but we're set up for Sam being Alexis' long, lost baby and it was just revealed on Friday.

We know that Sam hates Alexis with the flaming power of 8 supernovae. So, are TIIC setting us up for Carly/Bobbie Redux? Or something that might actually require thought, talent and care?

You decide.

My mind is already made up.



Lastly, there is some sekrit trip to Puerto Rico with Sonny and "Um"ily but I don't know much about it. My eyeballs tend to sear into the back of my brain during those scenes and fry into little crispy critters.

That makes watching difficult at best.

Plus, the nausea makes me have to leave the room 'cause I really don't want to make a mess.
