81 March 12th, 2015 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spinelli Utters “Stone Cold” When He Happens Upon “Jake”!

Courtesy/ABC

On Wednesday’s General Hospital, it was during the final moment of the episode that was most noteworthy!

As “Jake” (Billy Miller) signs his release papers from GH, and as Carly (Laura Wright) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) are standing by happy to hear the news that he is recovered enough from his surgery to move on with his life, Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) with Sam (Kelly Monaco) happen upon the scene.

From Spinelli’s vantage point. he sees “Jake” in traditional Jason Morgan black t-shirt attire from behind.  When he comes upon the “mystery man”, he utters out loud, “Stone Cold?” Sam hears this and doesn’t know what to make of it, and in true sudsy fashion the episode ends and fades to black.

The questions are:  Can Spinelli deduce the clues and put together the pieces that “Jake” is indeed his beloved friend?  Will this chance meeting set the sleuthing genius on the path to solving this once and for all?  Will “Jake” recall who Spinelli is when he sees him? Share your thoughts below!

    If Jake doesnt recognize Sam, son Danny, Liz, Skangster moll Carly or even his own picture, very doubtful he will recognize Spinelli…recurring or not, why cant we have Monica appear in some Jake scenes…i still believe Jake’s identity will be revealed at nurses ball or May sweeps…and probably when Liz and Nik get cozy and she learns he knew about Jake all this time!!!

    You forgot Sonny– I wasn’t watching during the Jason years, but based on what I heard and read Jason and Sonny were joined at the hip. I imagine during May Sweeps during some big confrontation between the mob families Jake will come face to face with Sonny, and as either Sonny or Jake is about to shoot the other, Jake will remember Sonny and then remember who is he is. Personally, I would love it if it was Monica who figures out who he really is, but considering how mob center this show is I wouldn’t be surprise if meeting Sonny is the trigger to get Jake to remember he is Jason.

    I did forget…im getting old…lol…itll probably be Sonny who will trigger Jasons memory…was hoping Jason would have some heart problem and it was Monica who operates on him and when he wakes up he recognizes her and calls her mom!!!

    lynMarie replied

    It’s a shame that no one knew or loved Jason to know his movements and just regular things ppl know about each other..I think of everyone either sam or Sonnie should have a rude awakening and realize

    Speaking of Monica, wish they had shown her “convincing” the Judge that Michael should get custody of AJ (Avery). Would love to see more of her, and baby could use another Grandmother.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I think Monica and the judge were only written as a couple solely for the purpose of Micheal gaining custody of Avery-it wouldve been nice to see Monica influencing the judges decision but it was obvious this was done off screen-i dont think tptb intend to use Monica for more than a few episodes a year and we will see her only for a couple episodes when Jake is finally revealed to be Jason and as soon as we blink, Monica and the Judge will disappear with the long missing Epiphany and Milo on their double date to forgotten character land hosted by Mac and Felicia…

    you though the ending scene was the most noteworthy ? i though it was nathan and dante showering together! lol, ok so back to the last noteworthy scene of yesterdays episode, i think everyone will give spinneli that awkward look and nothing will come of it. also worth noting on yesterdays episode that hypocrite carly spend the night at sonny’s house after michael gain custody of AJ, and after they all guilt tripped him, only to wake up the next day and instead call or go check on her daughter little brat josslyn, her first thought was to go visit “Jake” , so there you have it folks, Carly’s priorities have always been Men, not her children, so for her to be giving anyone any advice on parenting is the ultimate hypocrisy. She’s the next one who deserves to have everything taken from her.

    Same here, though I never sit and watch during the day. My baby is a good little girl, but when my son gets home from school, mayhem happens.
    There is no way I can go through more torturous months of anticipation. As with the Fluke storyline, after a while I just didn’t care any more. The thrill was gone. It made no sense.
    I don’t want to lose interest in Jake’s story progression, only because it’s Billy Miller.

    Timmm replied

    Seems like they have cooled on the Fluke story. Maybe AG is headed on vacation? I still think he kidnaps Avery. [A.J.]

    ummmhhh… ???

    I don’t mind …. Spinelli…. ( I didn’t miss him )

    just when it seems the main factor… that Maxie moved on…. and we’re to believe that his breaking up with Ellie and returning “Georgie” is a catalyst?

    it’s not fun to watch Nathan… questioning any thing… his acting nosedives

    the one thing I can agree on… when Lulu is telling Traci… when they agree they need a detective…. (to find Fluke) ??? Lulu chimes in : i’ll call Sam….

    YES! I LOL… heartily… when Traci immediately pounced.. NO absolutely NOT…. I too am so over her ho hum lackadaisical nancy drew gumshoe… dullard

    so.. in this respect I don’t mind Spinelli… already his “comedic” antics are tired… when he’s at the hosp… with Maxie.. when Georgia took ill… and Nathan showed up and Sam had to haul Spinelli out of their…. alright already

    does this bode well for the audience… that it’s Spinelli that figures out Jake Doe? is this all to prop up Kelly Monaco’ SAM ? alright already

    leave well enough alone… she stays with Patrick… Jason will mix in when he knows Daniel Edward is his son

    Carly … LOL… after ignoring Josslyn and spends the night with MR. BIG Sonny… and the next morning… “i’m going to visit Jake”…. as Ric and Sonny lament and or harbor mixed emotions LOL about stud muffin

    Liz… also… can’t leave him alone… and is standing guard over him as he recovers from that brain chip

    eeehhhh… so the writing is back to all three (Carly, Liz, Sam ) hovering and back at Jake

    ENOUGH !

    get him on the mend… on his own two feet… AND RUN … to the Quartermania… MIX him up

    he hasn’t done anything… worthwhile… since being back…. aside from the one assignment from Helena.. when he stud muffin’ and took Sam hostage… I hope these two never get any more closer than that

    who figures this out… I hope he remembers the Q’s first… and continues to keep the three starlets at bay

    Ric and Carly
    Ava and Sonny or Silas
    Liz and Jake Doe
    Sam and Patrick

    or… let the audience fester that much more about Sonny : let him and Michael dual and they both die

    PS: i actually am liking the more I see… the more this pair “belong”
    Michael and Sabrina

    GH production: KEEP Carlos!

    Spinnelli is old news. His act is a one and done thing. The nerd thing is dead!

    Love Ric and Sonny bonding as brothers. I want Carly and Sonny to stay together and Ric and ?

    Carrrrrrrlos sucks!

    Laurie replied

    Patrick,
    Re: Spinelli’s fervently pursuing Maxie, in some states it’s called stalking. I call it rude!
    Stalking & butting in relationship’s sl’s are on all soaps: Joe stalking Avery & Kelly is w/Jack on #YR
    We just saw Spin in December treating Maxie as just a good friend & mother + Spin showing Nathan respect & kindness in Portland. Even if we had seen Spin sad, indecisive, gazing out windows in Portland, perhaps we’d believe his renewed passion.
    Hoping TPTB want to get closure on Spixie for now.

    Carly keeps waxing on about Jake, Jake, Jake to Sonny, knowing what he was trying to do to Franco just months ago. He’ll probably shoot Jason before it’s all over.

    Spin saw Jason’s clothes, shape & stance from behind & Jake was surrounded by Jason’s old harem-I can see why he’d go there & blurt it out w/o thinking. The ladies may not have recognized him cuz the 1st views Jake’s harem got of him in PC months ago was from the front & w/Jake’s face, not Jason’s. So Jake maybe being Jason doesn’t resonate.

    I agree Jake hasn’t done anything worth a %$&* yet. Hospital 3x in 5 months, passing out on docks & brain surgeries that Patrick don’t recognize his handywork. Jake needs job, place to live where the jealous lover doesn’t pop in, & to interact w/different characters, like some men! Oh, he’s spent months in GH but not come across Monica while he was conscious once???

    SO WILL JAKE AND SPINELLI BECOME ROOMATES?

  6. Aden says:

    So…..supposedly intelligent women like Liz and Sam (I would include Carly here, but she aint intelligent on any level) cannot even pick up one slight clue that Jason might be Jake….in spite of the 374 or so clues…..like him using the name Jake…him responding to emotional stimuli that only Jason would…..the multiple brain damage and operations…his gastounding sniper skills….his voice…perhaps a mannerism or two…him having Jason’s memories….etc etc. Yet Spinelli walks around a corner, sees the back of a man in a black t shirt…and is so visibly rattled and shaken that he utters Stone Cold. Why not hire Spinelli as Police Chief or head of the WSB? Anna cant solve a crime to save her life. There are other narrative formats…other than dumbing down your characters to the most moronic and absurd levels….but Ron doesnt seem to have learned any others yet.

    Harry replied

    Aden, I think it’s because these women don’t realize they’re on a soap opera.
    Spinelli, with all his super instinctual, highly functioning Asperger’s-sixth sense -self, seems to be cognizant that he is existing in an alternate universe where such things are possible.

    Rose replied

    Don’t forget Danny immediately felt comfortable with Jake as well. What’s the saying…sometimes through the eyes of a child? Sam’s pretty good about connecting the dots. In this case maybe she’s too close to this one, or Jake, even possibly being Jason, is too fantastical for her. Yet there always seems to be a question in her eyes when another clue drops into place.

    Harry replied

    Suoo, I do agree. And I love that the “Jackal” called out “Jason” right off.
    Jason’s grieving trio of loveelorn groupies, Sam, Carly and Lizzy, failed to recognize him, but Jackal did not.

    kevin replied

    I laughed when that happened in yesterday’s episode. I was thinking how ironic that the women in Jake’s past life hadn’t picked up on the clues, but Spinelli’s objective eyes (absent from Jake’s recent return) & that their former bromance might be what propels the story forward. I thought it was cute!

    I know right

    “Jake Doe” backside, his person… unseen… stirs

    CeeCee replied

    About that, Aden? I am so bored with this stupid “operation’ Anna concocted. And, why do all these clandestine meetings take place in the open? Exactly what is Anna’s title, now?
    The other thing that makes me go…’HUH’ ??!!?! is how the cops are not alerted to the rounds of gunfire.

    I suppose we all question how on earth no one picks up any of Jake’s nuances. So, out of the three women, and Patrick ,who performed surgery on him once before , and ,as a doctor, should have recognized his own work; it took Spinelli to get his hackles up?
    Also, as you point out, his voive should have been a dead giveaway….or did Helena change that too?
    I think Jake needs to get intimate with one or all his “loves”. The revelation will be tumultuous….pun intended.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    And CeeCee what about Monica. She loved Jason, its her son. If they had her in a damn scene or two with Jake I think Monica would put two and two together! What mother doesnt know her son?

    CeeCee replied

    @Timmm.
    Absolutely, Timmm. There is no way a mother would not know her son. Even Jake’s stance, the way he turns his head, the inclination of his head and body, his mannerisms, HIS HANDS, for goodness sake!!!!
    Anyone who was close to him should pick out the slightest detail of what made/makes Jake Jason. I can spot my husband a mile away, even from the back…..as I can all my family and close friends.
    So, this notion of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is not true to life. Had Jake been among strangers, one could understand the reasoning. But, these are people who were fixtures in his past.
    Nonetheless, I think Spinelli sparked some distant, fuzzy memory; recognition, if you will.
    As many of us have stated, please let this be a swiftly passing storyline. I would like to see Billy Miller , finally ,come to life.

    Shay replied

    Tell me about it, CeeCee….One of the things that has always made Anna so special and unique is that she’s not just “one of the girls.” The divine Devane was far better than that…..an unflappable alpha-female in a man’s world who could stand toe-to-toe with the big boys, whilst looking fashionably chic at the same time! And…she would never back down. Seeing her reduced to playing this monotonous “SpyChicks” game with Jordan is beyond silly and demeaning….not to mention, completely amateurish. I really hope that this insipid storyline is put to rest sooner rather than later, so Anna can assume her rightful place and return to doing what she does best….being in charge! Oh, and by the way, I am the only one who found Sloane’s “drop the towel” tease and off-color remarks beyond boorish, appalling and disgusting?

    CeeCee replied

    @Shay.
    I have been trying not to be so untoward, remember? …LOL.
    I did not find the dropping of the towel so boorish as ridiculous. He must have an IMMENSE ego.LOL. I was actually impressed by his aging bod. He is a bit scrawny, though. I like tone and sinew….Many men, older than he, aren’t as lucky. But, Anna’s play-on-words MINIMIZED the object of Sloane’s pride and joy. I thought it was silly and hilarious. Once I found the humor of the stupid spectacle, I let it go as nonsense.
    I really was not offended, nor taken aback by the gesture….I knew from the get-go this ‘momentous’ occasion would eventually come to pass. Not exactly in this fashion, but the sexual interest would have come to light sooner or later. I expected it.
    Let me ask you, though. Would you have been as appalled by the ‘towel drop’ if it had been a woman? We see women toy with men’s ‘sense and sensibilities’ all the time. Is it that old double standard come to visit? Is “What’s good for the goose ….”etc., implied? I am just confused as to why this scene was on?????? TPTB make Sloane look like a jerk… Women hate that….less is more? Is that what this is?…LOL. One should never, ever show all his cards all at once. Sloane needs to learn how to play the game.LOL.
    Anyone is better than Duke, though. He is so much like Sam (are we sure she is not his daughter? They would fit into the age slot), he is as monotonous as she. Duke’s dour countenance leaves a lot to be desired. ….I like him even less than Sonny.

    Shay replied

    Hey there, CeeCee! I’m not really sure of the spirit in which the writers meant that “towel dropping” scene….insulting, erotic or just plain disarming to Ms. Devane???? I personally thought her expression relayed repulsion, in which case, I would have heartily agreed, and so I found humor in that. She was clearly NOT impressed! Other than that, without knowing the actual intent of the act, I have nothing more to add, other than I did find it inappropriate. It’s not as if this were a friendly situation with two parties who had already technically dated and had some sort of budding romance going…..Anna was there on official business, so even if Sloane’s behavior was no great surprise, I thought it was really uncalled for in that particular circumstance. And I would have probably said the same thing were the tables turned on the sexes…I could never imagine her doing something like that in a similar situation with Sloane….as for other females, yeah, there are plenty of women in Port Charles who would have no compunction in using their whiles—in other words, displaying their goods, and no, I shall name no names—-to discombobulate an impressionable male, so it would all depend upon whom was doing the deed and why before I could specifically say yay or nay! As for Duke, yes, he is most unenthusiastic….quite a far cry from his earlier days on the show, however, the one thing I did appreciate in his love scenes with Anna was that they conveyed a classy and mutual respect…neither had to show off their assets or slobber all over each other like they were barnyard animals in heat….their physical relationship was portrayed, i.e., intimated, in a much more tasteful manner than other characters of a similar demographic….again, I won’t mention anyone specifically……Having said that, the more I see of Mr. Lavery, the less I think of a mobster, as opposed to say, a dealer of rare antiquities….that’s just the vibe he gives off to me….courtly, dignified and cultured. The total opposite of Sonny Tortelli.

    CeeCee replied

    @Shay.
    Hi Shay,
    “a dealer of rare antiquities”…. That’s rich…I like it. But, that’s because Duke is a rare antiquity.
    Moreover, at the risk of getting a rolling of the eyes, I think he actually looks a little ‘alienish’. All he needs are extra-pointy ears.
    Anna may have been there on official business, however I personally thought that the sexual tension was remarkable, nonetheless. I would have preferred Sloane be the previous actor in the role, but I did not feel a connection there. Rodd (sp) did not appear tough enough. He had more of a ‘baby face’.
    Lol, Shay. Duke and Anna’s lovemaking was classy? How does one have ‘classy’ sex? I did not watch then…I was not allowed to watch sex scenes when I was that age. But, I would be bored to death if my husband was ‘classy’ in the bedroom. I think that in the privacy of one’s bedroom, anything goes.
    But, there is so much these actors can do. I do agree that some of them are exhibitionists and do more than required. But, it is what it is….new age, new era. I just think that at a certain age, and I know that engaging in sex has no age limit, I do not want to be subjected to it. I get visions of my parents, or grandparents doing it…gross. But, that’s my problem…LOL. Later.

    Shay replied

    Sad but true, CeeCee….and it pains me to say that, because I remember when Duke was such a vital, suave bad boy who could rock a kilt like no other! LOL. Then IB went on to other soaps and started playing all sorts of weird, defective characters…..still, I had high hopes when he returned to Port Charles. Alas, those years in the “Turkish prison” took their toll….and me thinks those alien-like features to which you refer may be courtesy of a wee-bit too much botox….As for Sloane and his “Chippendales” act…..I think it would have been far more appealing with the first actor…I appreciated his boyish charm, and I did feel he had a spark with Anna that—for me—is not present with this new, not-improved, reptilian version. What would have seemed playful & pleasantly teasing with Robb Derringer came off as simply menacing and rude with Grayson McCouch….just my opinion. As for Anna and Duke’s nookie sessions, I was comparing them with the more laughable—and sometimes puke-worthy—OTT scenes with Scotty and Bobbie Boop/Floosy Coe as well as the more frequent and nauseating displays between Julian and well, you know. With Sir Duke and Lady Anna the romance of the moment was more emphasized as opposed to the raunching &rolling, if you get my drift. Let’s just say it certainly sufficed and the message that they were a happy and satisfied couple came through loud and clear without requiring further illustration. Worked for me.

    Shay replied

    Hi CeeCee! I tried to answer your posts on the succeeding GH thread, and the reply didn’t make it, so I decided to re-post here so at least you hopefully will receive my remarks in your inbox: …..So then, you survived the Ariana concert???? LOL….I concur that the Franco “Monchichi” tour de force was tres amusing…..I don’t mind RoHo’s inspired antics in the least, I just prefer him without his current choice of pseudo(?)-psycho sidekick! (And sorry, but NO amount of telepathic chanting is apt to change that…..MS’s nerve-wracking Nina remains in my crosshairs for a swift departure from Port Charles….immediately behind the insipid Sappy!) However, I do think this misunderstood maniacal man-child may have hit upon something….how befitting are Scott and Alexis as a couple? “Mr. and Mrs.,” indeed! The bloviating, unfortunately-coiffed Baldwin is not surprisingly unattached, and so should be that bosom-baring, sex-crazed grand-mammy as soon as Julian comes to his senses and gravitates toward his bodacious babymama, Olivia, so…..putting those two together sort of kills two problematic birds with one stone. Besides, I much prefer NLG’s Ms. Davis as a purposely funny comedienne, instead of the unintentionally comical—and exasperating–sexually-insatiable, flustered femme with the too-tight wardrobe that she works so hard at portraying. As for those self-confessed naughty notions, I would give more than a penny to see them put to post here, but I know better than to encourage such sauciness, since you have made a promise to be on your best behavior!!!! (Sigh…..) Oh well….enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Right, Su. For once (I think), Jason is working for the cops, undercover, acting the good guy, as I suspect Nikolas is. I hope that when Jake does remember, he emerges as Jason Quartermaine. I also hope that his first meeting with Sonny will be the catalyst to realize his true identity.

    Now, Sonny does not buy , nor is he completely convinced this device business which had been planted in Jake’s head was the culprit for his ungodly behavior. He announced to Duke that it takes a very skillful and experienced hand to execute that kind of abduction and to use Sam as a human shield to aid in the escape of Faison. No novice, Jake!! Well, I say……it takes one to know one.

  9. Travis Thomas says:

    Am I the only that wants Spinelli to go away??? Im sorry but this character just irks me so much. Everytime he has scenes I just want to FF through them to make it end. Im all for Quirky type characters, but I find his long winded sentences so draining and a lil over the top for my taste.

    Plus I just love me some Maxie and Nathan. I think maybe cause it took a year for that relationship to actually bloom, I heart them. Also it was like I got rid of one annoying character with Levi, to have him replaced with another annoying character chasing Maxie.

    But what really bugs me, is that this is the same character that chose Ellie after Maxie poured her heart out to him, took Maxie’s child, and for the 1st yr wouldnt make any accommodations towards Maxie. He left. Nathan was there to pick up the pieces and help Maxie realize to fight for her child. So now that he has decided that they belong together the whole world should stop because now he wants Maxie. Im like boy sit down. Rolling up in town wanting her AFTER she has healed and in a better place. I attribute that all to Nathan, so I find his actions to be selfish and its become grating.

    For once I wish this could play out like the real world where sometimes you are too late and the person you didnt choose has moved on and found happiness. Now that is true heartache and loss, which would be nice to be played out on a soap for once other than the typical Soapy shenanigans.

    ITA, Maxie&Nathan are the best couple on the show right now, and they’d better not give us Spixie redux instead! I always loved Spin, but NEVER Spixie. He turns her into a cartoon character. This is Frisco & Felicia’s daughter! She deserves an epic romance like theirs.

    Travis, I am so with you! I cannot stand Spinnelli. The act is old. It reminds me of some kind of annoying character in one of those Disney teen shows! And seriously, in what world would a Maxie choose a Spinnelli over Nathan?

    Travis…I TOTALLY AGREE with both you and Timmm!!!!! Back then, I DID NOT care for that Spinelli dude…and I STILL DON’T!!!!! Bottom Line Here: I don’t understand (or see the point) as to why GH felt the need to bring that Spinelli dude back onto the GH canvas. No thanks. Pass. Next…

    Travis and Timmm…you guys take care. Peace.

    I always liked Spinelli. He was a rare “heart and soul” character who provided goofy, lovable comic relief. I liked him with Maxi and his friendship with Jason, Sam, Lulu and Dante. And the occasional interaction with the hilarious Diane..who we never see anymore was always fun. I missed his presence on the show as it seemed more and more familiar faces were leaving. For continuity sake, I like when familiar faces return…and his is good timing as his Stone Cold…or Jason Q? Is finally revealed. His presence should be poignant in Jason’s “saga.”

    With that said I adore Nathan, but once again GH builds up a budding romance, and just as the couple finally makes their way to each other the writers throw in an obstacle. I’m rooting for Nathan and Maxi…I’d like to see how they play out…but I’m not sure if Nathan will ever get or accept the things Maxi does like Spinelli…I hope he can.

    Last…they made Spinelli more aggressive, pushy. Gotta give Spin credit for even thinking he has a chance against Detective Sexypants!

    Finally, someone sees a Jason in Jake. It’s truly hard to believe that Sam or Elizabeth wouldn’t recognize his voice (shouldn’t have changed), his fingers and nails (I would know my husband’s), his built, and on and on.
    Also, if Jason had not been hit by the car, wouldn’t he have been walking around with his own face? How was Helena going to hide that fact? She told Nicholas that it was an added bonus that he had a face change which means that she was going to use him as her “soldier” when he had his own face. Am I right about that?

    Rebecca1 replied

    Yes…at the time I thought she would brainwash him to be a spy or strong arm….perhaps going back to work for Sonny or becoming a Q again…they would have their Jason back but he’d be doing secret jobs for her…perhaps in a now too commonplace Port Chuck mask to hide his identity when under her influence…

    Once there, being involved in the life he one had Jake will realize he is indeed Jason..
    A genius move, indeed a befitting way to bring Jason back, where he left off in the mob.. but! on the other side there will be a big turn with that… this will good !!

    lol when Jake realizes he is Jason and now working for the police, he will freak out knowing he’s a nark/informant for the police ahha! cant wait!

    I hadn’t thought of it like that, going back to what he knew will open
    up the flood gates to his memory. You R one clever girl Su000

    Great deduction, Su. Unless, Jason’s inexplicable pull toward the “good-doers” is his liberation from a life of crime. Hey, girl, it could go the other way……there is a huge chance the opposite could also work.
    Although Jake may very well feel right at home , “pretending” to be a mobster, he may not remember why. And, if he does, perhaps he wants out.
    His memories may only be of his life as a Quartermaine. Who will have the last laugh then, Su?
    I could have cared less if Jason had been ‘brick-wall’ OldJason who had amnesia, but, it’s BILLY. PTB….DO NOT DO THIS TO BILLY, please!! Make him a good guy. Don’t turn him into glacial oldJason.

    This entire mobster stories are so hypocritical and unrealistic.
    There aren’t ANY GOOD mobsters, Su. But, I can see the fascination you have with people who live a life of crime, such as Sonny…LOL.
    A few chapters, in the book I mentioned some posts ago, vivifies that life. I doubt you would like to live it. GH is not real and what we see is insular…..only skims the surface. I don’t think it is that glamorous. And, Sonny never dies? All he gets is a beating in prison? Really? A Don of ‘la cosa nostra’ would not mingle among the other prisoners….he would be separated from the rif-raf for his own protection. Furthermore, a Don would hold ‘court’…jesters and all….LOL.

    You had stated a few months ago that your parents are both psychiatrists. Well, then, their study of Sociology would have entailed just such subject.

    However, I do agree that the anticipation of what will go down, certainly draws my curiosity and attention. Also, needless to say, you always manage to entertain me.

    This is so contrived it is stupid Danny was an infant why would he feel anything for this stranger! As for Liz, Carly & Sam not to pick up on anything? This storyline is a bust ! Billy Miller should have stayed at Y&R and SB should have stayed at GH !

    Did anyone notice that when it was raining on the docks during the shootout that Duke barely got wet as was the same with Julian but Carrrrrrlos and Shawn were soaked?

    Timm,
    I noticed nothing from those mob scenes, I’ve started to FF through dock shootings. Who’s the biggest fool of them all? Sonny, Julian, Duke, Shawn, Carlos, Johnny? Many had somewhat well-written mob exit openings and/or women they loved & a few had new families to protect & fill future days with-reasons to leave, but they refuse to leave the mob! Now they have folks like Fluke, at 1 point, dying to join in with mad fervor. Jake must join or be jailed. Jordan, STILL, bouncing around on the inside, too (but she wants out.) Who will join next? Seems quite easy if you ask Jake. Sam: Dad, will you hire Jake Doe, who planted bombs all over PC, broke into my house to kill Patrick&I after he held me hostage at PCPD? He has no memory or family he remembers, no ss # to run a check on him, but I know he’s good people.

    Question- Earlier you said “in what world would a Maxie choose a Spinelli over Nathan?” Don’t you rag on Nathan & his line deliveries? LOL..I think it’s you, so this statement surprised me. If it is you, I appreciate that you know that just because you don’t like things about a character and/or how they’re portrayed, you understand their importance to other characters & how they fit into the dynamics of the show.

    Laurie, yes its me, the Ryan Peavey basher. Basher is too harsh! I get frustrated with him because of his greenness as an actor and he is with a lot of front burner characters. However, I have nothing against the man. He interviews well and seems very nice. I also must say he has improved. I think one thing is his dialect is odd and that may affect his delivery? He needs to show more emotion, happy, sad, or angry. And Laurie you are right, I did comment about Maxie’s no brainer choice between Nathan and Spinnelli. It has to be Nathan not only because he is handsome and chiseled out of stone, he and Maxie have actually built a relationship on screen that started off rocky, then they were friends and now lovers. I respect their history and chemistry and that is the second reason to pick Nathan over Spin. Take care.

    LOL. That’s because mobster at the top of the Hierarchy Chart are also waterproof, don’t you know…..same as Sonny.

    Yes, CeeCee….I noticed “Grossalie” in the OM commercial….perhaps that’s her “secret”…..that she’s really a housewife with a family in the ‘burbs, and her alter ego only pretends to be a street-tough chick! LOL. All I know is that I keep hoping she chokes on that sandwich so we will be spared yet another round of Michael slumming with her…..now that his taste for the sauce is coming to fore it appears that my prediction he is going to replicate AJ’s perilous path to ruin is about to come true….right down to his predilection for questionable, lesser-than females with whom to associate! But I do have to wonder, could “Grossie” also be part of Sloane’s rat patrol? She has been hiding something and she’s so shady that I cannot imagine that it is anything good.

    Lol, Shay. I needed that…bracing myself for yet another snow storm…I hope it’s a weak one. We’re taking the kids to the Ariana Grande concert in Manhattan tomorrow…..my nieces adore her……sigh!

    I may be wrong, but I don’t think Sloane is crooked, nor is Rosalie. I think Sloane really means to rid PC of ‘dirty rats’. Whatever Helena is holding over Ro’s head is inconsequential……some convenient excuse TPTB needed at the time……our brains are getting teased….same as the Fluke story. I am still waiting for that punchline that will blow me away. So far, nothing has stirred or shocked my mind to the point of incredulity, except for convoluted nonsense.
    I admit Sloane’s physique is not bad , but, he is an aging peacock whose drooping tail feathers have lost their luster. Why would Anna want that? She can probably have anyone she wants….she is such an enigmatic persona.
    I just find this ,’whatever’ , silly.
    I truly do not mind Rosalie. She hasn’t been visible long enough for me to make a judgement. But, she has more personality than Sam, I noticed that much…LOL. Later.

    Shay replied

    Don’t cringe, CeeCee, but I’m envious of your prospective snowstorm….we had a hint of the white stuff this morning, but alas, all of my beautiful months-long accumulation has melted. I love winter, I love cold weather and I always hate the onset of spring….particularly when it arrives too early. I can tolerate it when it starts around May….no sooner! I know you had a pretty bad winter season these past few months…..I am more mid-Atlantic, so sometimes we had the same conditions as you, sometimes not. Still, I hope you come out of this latest weather system relatively unscathed since you have weekend plans. Ariana, huh? Could be much worse…thank your lucky stars it’s not Miley Cyrus! LOL. As for Sloane, the reason I consider him to be sinister is the recast….if his character were supposed to be such a boy scout, a hero with a white hat riding into town to clean up the streets, than why would the show runners have replaced an All-American type of guy with someone who registers much more nefarious? There seems to be a method to this madness, although I certainly cannot hazard a guess as to what is…..having said that, I truly don’t see the dynamic Devane going for that creepy dude, well-preserved physique or not. I’d actually like to see Frisco come back to town to pair up with her, as it appears there’s no prayer of Robert returning to Port Charles any time in the near future. Seems we shall have to just wait and see what direction all this takes….not unlike so many other storylines that have just been hanging on…and on. In terms of Grossalie, I can’t imagine her as having a benevolent purpose either….I just read a teaser implying she may be an illegitimate Cassadine (though unbeknownst to Helena….) I don’t know if I buy that, but I have long thought she’s an illegitimate something or other! However, for the record, she does look like she could definitely do a real beat down on Sappy, so if push comes to shove, I’ll go “Team Grossie!” (Just kidding…well, sorta…maybe.) At any rate, have a “Grande” weekend, Girl!!!!

    I can’t see why it hasn’t occurred to anyone who Jake really is. And with all the surgeries Jake has had, it seems like they could have cross-referenced blood types or DNA by now. As a fan, I am becoming increasingly insulted by this storyline.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Yeah, Carolyn. I said pretty much the same thing. Patrick operated on Jason, thus, as a doctor, he should have recognized his own handiwork. I say this from a very reliable source.
    Not only that, but when Patrick was studying and looking at Jake’s X-Rays, something should have rung a bell. Many of us are insulted as well.
