For the week of June 13th…
Patrick and Coleman have a talk about fidelity.
I hope the talk goes along the lines once an infidel, always an infidel. If GH were going to hang around for another 20 years or so, I would expect Patrick and Robin to mature into the next Alan and Monica. Sadly, TPOV (the pit of vipers), otherwise known as TPTB, are not going to give them a chance to cheat, make up, and bring down the roof on each other’s heads.
Ethan and Sonny have an argument. Ethan tells Sonny that he will see Kristina even without Sonny’s permission.
Each time Sonny threatens Ethan or Johnny he gets the same noncompliant brushoff. They also seem immune to Sonny’s death stare. What’s the younger generation of tough guys coming to if they won’t even quake in their shoes when Sonny goes all ire-iffic at them?
Luke pushes Lucky away.
If course he does. He can’t continue his Emmy worthy drama bender if he listens to Lucky and tries to climb out of the pit in which he’s wallowing. Some actors go along for the ride of the storyline. Anthony Geary makes whatever storyline he’s in. Except for his romance with Summer, that was just odd.
Anthony finds Brenda alone and threatens her.
Stating the obvious here but how can Brenda worry nonstop about the dangers of MOB life for her son but not understand that it’s dangerous for her by extension? Duh.
Robin and Brenda have a talk about how she is afraid of Sonny’s mob life.
Gee, I figured sex with Sonny must be so good that his dangerous life didn’t matter.
Ethan gets surrounded by Max and Milo.
Oh cool, Max and Milo sighting.
Michael and Abby discuss future.
What’s to discuss? Abby has a future probably, and Michael does not on his current career path.
Kristina tells that she sent the application to PCU for Michael.
High five for Kristina. If Abby can talk Michael into it, he has the option of college. Surely, he can MOBit part time between classes. Some kids deliver pizza, Mihcael can get shot at on the docks.
Bryce taunts Kristina and Michael attacks him in her defense.
Kinda hard to think badly of Michael for delivering a Bryce smackdown.
Lulu asks for an update about Luke.
He’s drunken-lutely still not ready to change his ways. End of update.
Ethan overhears Luke say that he wants to be irredeemable.
Cop. Out. In his own dramatic fashion Luke is doing the equivalent of the kid who sings “nobody likes me, everybody hates me, guess I’ll go eat worms.” In the process we get to see Luke revisit his youth and explore the root of his demons which will be interesting.
Carly and Jax put their argument aside for the kids graduation.
Do I care? …Thinking…umm, nope, I don’t. Except if Jax is going to be in the scene it will be nice to see making-an-effort Jax instead of snotty Jax.
During the celebration Michael is nowhere found.
Did anyone check the bathroom? He’s probably in there cleaning up the blood. I hope he makes it out in time to walk across the stage. Carly and Sonny deserve to see that milestone.
Mayor Floyd balks at giving Michael his diploma, but Sonny brings pressure to bear.
Didn’t his wife kill him last year? Oh wait, she murdered the woman he was sleeping with. Maybe Michael should sterilize his diploma after Mayor Floyd handles it.
Alexis tries to make a lesson from Michael’s behavior but Carly defends him.
Life Lesson Alexis should know: Never, never criticize another woman’s child in front of the child’s mother. That goes for husbands also.
Michael and Jason have another heart to heart and this leads to agreement of Michael working legitimately at the coffee warehouse over the summer.
It was all legitimate business at the coffee warehouse when Michael was shot. The warehouse does not equate safety.
Kristina hopes for a kiss.
I remember those hopeful teenage years when a crush ruled my every thought. I remember that time fondly but I would not go back there for anything.
Dante gives the news that Michael’s parole is over.
The judge probably got tired of him.
Anthony continues to help Lisa.
When Lisa goes ballistic in the hospital, Johnny has to accept part of the blame. He helped hide her and then left her with Anthony. Two unbalanced ones can balance on opposite sides of a teeter totter but if they both sit on one side, the other side doesn’t have a chance.
Lisa arrives at the hospital with a deadly plan.
One last shoot ‘em up from Guza. I wish for him a writing gig on primetime where he can indulge in his love of shoot outs and blow ups.
Elizabeth reaches out to Jason about Lucky.
I always like Elizabeth better when she’s standing next to Jason. It’s not that I am a card carrying Liason fan, but I think Jason doesn’t treat her like a helpless little girl, so she doesn’t act like one.
Steve is concerned about Liz returning to work in the operating room.
What a difficult judgment call. At some point, it’s healthy to get on with life. I would not like to be the one having to decide when another person has reached that point.
Siobhan and Maxie discuss Aidan’s paternity.
It’s a bit ridiculous that Liz is hiding the paternity of another child since that worked so well for her with Jake. Not.
Liz and Lucky discuss who is to blame for Jake’s death.
Grieving and guilt intertwine like peanut butter and jelly. Grief hurts so it’s human nature to poke it and twist it into guilt because guilt is a more explainable emotion. If I didn’t do this, that wouldn’t have happened.
Maxie and Dante have a conversation about Lulu.
The words “losing her mind”, “codependent” and “delusional” need to be included in that conversation. Lulu fell over the edge when she chose ordering liquor and shot glasses over a romantic trip to Paris.
Lucky sets the fire at the Spencer house not realizing that Siobhan is still inside.
Dang, it’s so inconvenient to go all destructo only to endanger another person. Now Lucky can dive into the guilt buffet and spiral to the bottom. Maybe Luke will look up in time to save him.
Sam and Spinelli take off for a case, while Jason thinks she is still not fully recovered.
Yeah, I’m thinkin’ the glass bubble is not a good fit for Sam.
Sam goes to the hospital with stomach cramps.
It could be bad sushi for lunch.
Lucky and Dante rescue Siobhan and take her to the hospital.
Nice of them. Why does Dante have to be in so many scenes? I don’t hate him but I am heartily sick of him.
Liz runs to help Matt in the surgery not knowing it Siobhan and makes a potentially fatal mistake.
Does it make a difference when she sees Siobhan on the table? The words potentially fatal tell me that Liz doesn’t inadvertently off Siobhan. What’s the equivalent of a nursing dungeon? Liz needs to work there for a while until she gets a grip. It could take her storyline in a new direction which would be good for her.
Maxie arrives to see Matt at the hospital but runs into Spinelli.
And so the players begin arriving. Gotta stack the halls for Lisa’s rampage.
Robin and Sam discuss a pregnancy test.
Time to pee on a stick.
Lisa is dressed as a security guy and starts firing the gun in the hub.
Lots of people on board but what do you bet, it’s Dante, who just happens to be there, saving the day and stopping Lisa? To be fair, a couple years ago, it would have been Jason since he was the big rescuer and I would be fine with that since my Jason fanship hasn’t wained.
Michael gets good news.
I hope it’s that he gets to graduate because I don’t think Michael or viewers could stand another year in high school. Maybe they read my idea from last week and Michael receives an inheritance from an aunt or uncle he never knew and it changes the course of his life. (Arranged by Edward who deserves the occasional scheming success.)
Ethan tries to out-maneuver Max and Milo.
Hopefully, it will take several scenes and a couple days so that they can have plenty of air time.
