For the week of January 11, 2013
A big “Welcome Back!” to Carolyn Aspenson!
Monica and Sam plan a service for Jason.
In normal soap speak, this is a big hint that the dead will return, but it’s a long swim from Tennessee to California, and after all of this time, I just don’t think Jason’s got the strength. Too bad, too. I’d love to see his non-expression when he showed up to his funeral and ran into his dead brother.
Sonny is bothered when he witnesses a kiss between Connie and AJ.
This actually happened on Friday, but don’t worry, it will happen again because we always get the last few minutes replayed the next day. Because apparently we have memory problems.
When isn’t Sonny bothered about something? He’s the conflicted character of the century. If he weren’t bothered, I’d say Faison or someone was wearing his face mask.
Todd uses Felix to assist in his escape.
Felix. Felix? Is that the dude that was sitting in the jail cell across from Todd? I’ve been watching, I swear, but about this spoiler, I got nothing. Nada. Zip. Oh, wait. Is Felix the Coo-Coo-Cosmetics dude? You know, the one who is helpful one minute and throws you under the bus the next? (and yes, I know it’s not called Coo-Coo-Cosmetics.)
Sonny and Connie grow closer.
Is this, on some emotional level, similar to a threesome?
Carly fears the worst when she wakes up in Todd’s bed.
Well, if this is the case, then that at least means Todd gets out of jail before this. Or not. This is a soap, after all. Seriously though, Carly, there’s nothing to fear. Just chill out and go with the flow. So we can all see Todd without his shirt. (We hope)
Sabrina and Felix discuss their worries about the future of the Nurses Ball.
Ah, so Felix is the dude who throws people under the bus. The only comments I can make here are extremely inappropriate and I’d prefer not to get hate mail so I’m pleading the 5th.
Felix helps Carly get rid of her hangover and gives her an idea.
Since there is a slight chance there’s something up with the red lipstick, maybe it’s got some sort of hangover relief proprieties in it? And since Carly said she has no one anymore, is this why she’s hanging out with Felix?
I don’t like him. Can you tell?
Britt crosses the line with Patrick.
Oh, poor Patrick. Grief has made him sooo stupid. It’s about time he notices there IS a line and hopefully he’ll figure out she crossed it long before he ever met her.
Ellie is upset when her condition doesn’t improve.
(Yeah, I would be too, but honestly, who walks in the middle of the road in the middle of the night, during bad weather, on NYE? Probably only soap people.)
I’m going to guess that Ellie tells Spinelli to dump her and be with Maxie. Who’s with me on this?
Lulu is concerned about her father when she can’t find his location.
Enjoy the trip now honey, because when Maxie has the baby-that-isn’t-really-yours, you won’t be going anywhere, what with being a full time babysitter and all. Oh, and don’t worry about Luke. He’ll be fine. He’s probably the only truly invincible man alive. (If you don’t count my husband who thinks he really is invincible.)
Alexis represents Lucy after she goes a little crazy on McBain.
I wonder if she’ll pull out her stake? Anything with Lucy is fun, and I’m going to guess this will be even more fun with the newly revived GH. (Katrina: She *does* pull out her stake and stakes him! She mistakes John for Caleb and Sam for Livvie and Oh My! Why *do* John and Sam feel so drawn to one another?? This launches a huge mystery and long-reaching story!)
Ned gives his mother a warning.
NED! L.O.V.E. me some Wally!
AJ and Michael have a plan to make Tracy pay.
Is this a literal or figurative statement? Hopefully it’s figurative. That’s always more fun. And I have to admit, I’m liking the return of AJ. I wasn’t a big fan before because he was such a screw up, but once I decided I liked Todd, I couldn’t really be a hypocrite. Besides, AJ is kind of cute.
Maxie gets the news…she’s pregnant (again.)
Okay, who actually didn’t know this was going to happen? This will lead to a potentially soapy storyline but it could have been a little less obvious.
Luke is nowhere to be found.
Johnny lets Diane in on Todd’s plan
Johnny is turning out to be a pain in the butt. That’s never good for a soap character. Ever.
