Well, now, Cap's life just won't play by the rules.....

My life is still in a state of complete turmoil but I'm soldiering on and will try and update everyone on the show.

A few things have occurred since I was last here.

I'll go through it by character/storyline.

Sonny and "Um"ily are just foul and disgusting but there are some highlights. Sonny, much as I hate to admit this, looks freakin' fantastic in a gorgeous, well-fitting grey suit and a black t-shirt. I mean, maybe he's been to rehab or something? He looks AWESOME.

"Um" ily has met the IckFairy who dresses Skye and looks like a hag. The Talons of Doom are back, too. Someone in wardrobe and makeup clearly has it in for her.


Over the years of my reading about and keeping up to date with GH, I do know that Maurice Benard (Sonny) has had his own personal and genuine bouts with bipolar disorder. He's been lobbying TIIC for years to have Sonny face his bipolar demons.

While that request kept getting back burnered, he also started pushing for a Sonny/Emily storyline back when Natalia Livingston (Emily) by some stroke of cataclysmic absurdity, won a Daytime Emmy for Supporting Actress.

It appears he's now getting both of his wishes. The bipolar disease is still just a tapdance but let's see how far they take it.

Which leads me to Jason. The "storm clouds of impending doom and heavy on the strings, please" are really great and inform us that Jason will be supremely pissed off if he finds out about Sonny and "Um".

Why, we ask politely?

Could it be because he'd make the same argument to Sonny about his little sister that Sonny made to a post-lung-surgery Jason about Courtney?

Noooo. Because that would make too much sense, demonstrate that Jason can defend himself when wronged no matter who it's by, and a knowledge of historical continuity in the show.




So, instead, they have Jason make his point that Sonny is dangerous.....not just in his choice of lifestyle but also because of his mental problems.

(See the tie-in there?)

I think Steve Burton is doing a great job with the additional emotion he's being saddled with. I only say great because when he's on he's really super. When he's off he's so boring and wooden it's almost comical.

(Speaking of comical. I hope I don't offend anyone but really. I so called that Jon Stewart would lead The Daily Show with the pictures of the Basque Terrorists, ETA, in those ridiculous get ups. Are they really trying to be taken seriously? I understand 40 years of terror...hell, I live in DC and work in Manhattan, I understand 5 hours of terror....but in those costumes? Ya gotta be kiddin' me.)

ANYway, so, Jason and his "you're lying to me" Spidey sense is all over Sonny and Umily as they lie like rugs to him.

Carly is covering for them because she doesn't want to see Jason blow like Vesuvius when he finds out.

Which leads me to Sam, the lunatic fringe. First, Sam is defending a potential Sonny/"Um"ily hook-up. (Unbeknownst to her it's already occurred.) She argues that they may well be the new "One Twoo Wuv" story.


Girl makes no sense.

And Jason's response would simply be, "Yeah. So were Courtney and I and you saw how THAT worked out...."

(Anyone who wants a copy of that lung surgery scene, let me know, I have it on tape and watch it frequently. It was that good.)

Sam's lunacy doesn't stop there, though. We know that Alexis is her mother, right? She is now completely psychotic about Alexis and rewriting history (or it that just lines TIIC stuff in Monaco's mouth without realizing she looks like an idiot) and making huge, mean, wicked assumptions about Alexis that no one seems to refute as absurd and unfair.

(The history re-write is that "Alexis killed Sam's baby* in order to save her own daughter, Kristina". Um, no. Sam's baby died in utero from a detatched framistat. The. Baby. Was. Born. Dead. No. One. Killed. It. And, assholes, by the way, *Sam's baby is not what's on the headstone, "Baby McCall". She had a name. It was Lila.)

So, Sam is routinely foaming a the mouth and spitting out ridiculous comments about Alexis. I'm not quite sure where they are headed with that but the anvils are raining down like any given scene in Bladerunner.

Which leads me, inexplicably, to close with what a Dick Jax is being.

So, no change there.

He's slapped Nikolas with a restraining order and won't let him see Baby John. He's allowing a physical attraction to grow between him and Carly. That's just......odd.

The only House reference (because God knows, House isn't referring to GH any longer.....sigh.....) is that the unbelievably hot Dr. Drake is grumping around the hospital and the female community in Port Charles in general.

And that Diego (Alfredo from "Humpty Dumpty") has a wee, tiny plot that may blossom but nothing so far.

Oh, lest I forget, Luke, Pregnant Skye, Lorenzo, Tracy. Yeah. Wouldn't want to forget that storyline.

For what it's worth, Lulu continues to make the show worth watching all on her very own.
