    Shoot me. (ABC)
    The GH Rant from May 27 – 30:

    It was a short week that just kept getting better and better despite a few diversions into the ridiculousness. Could they maybe play "General Hospital" on Saturday so we wouldn't have to wait through the weekend?

    Faux Luke-warm.
    Each week, more people wonder what's up with Luke. As warm as we think they are getting, it wasn't long before the hint of truth is cold again. What is wrong with Anna and the PCPD? There should have been news with a photo of Luke's unidentified hit man for anyone to identify made public. Apparently that's not going to happen and it's too bad because Lulu can identify she saw the man. It would be a wasted lead though since she'd probably go to Faux Luke first anyway. For all the threats he continues to throw around it's not possible he'd be able to hire anymore hit men if word gets out that he killed the last one so maybe people should be a little less afraid of the crazy man who is hooked to the most high maintenance ball and chain in town. It was funny that her biggest worry about him was the fact that he was missing all the time. That's Luke, what's not Luke is holding a gun to Ned. Luke's excuses and whacked out lies for everything are so unbelievable that viewers have to ask themselves, "What is in the drinking water of Port Charles?"

    Farewell for now, Lucas Lorenzo Spencer.
    Like the real Luke, we suffered through the rantings of Faux Luke prior to his big reveal fake out before he left on his honeymoon with Tracy. Anthony Geary brought sadness and insanity to the episode and although it was so very annoying that we still don't have confirmation of who is masquerading around as Luke, the episode was brilliant.

    Oh, for Heaven's sake.
    Give us a baby-break already. Are the writers kidding us? Sonny slept with the enemy, was about to show us his rage not unlike the rage that burned in him when he learned Claudia Zacchara was responsible for Michael getting shot and lying in a coma, and Ava is pregnant? They already had built us up for the poignant goodbye with Ava's promise to see Kiki tomorrow. Not. I guess they might see each other soon since Sonny is all about family. Here's a baby name for the two of them…how about AJ?

    Ric, Nik and Liz.
    You can't say the name Liz without there being two other names attached to the conversation. The Liz triangle of the moment continues to include Ric and Nik. With Ric being arrested there will be no way to keep Liz all warm and cozy in his bed so bets are on for how long it takes her to relocate to Wyndemere to warm up Nik's bed if she doesn't believe in Ric's innocence.


    I'm an artist. (ABC)
    Personal vendetta vs. justice.
    It is no wonder Anna's superiors don't trust her. She definitely is guided by her own personal feelings about everything. It would have been a more pleasing moment if Julian's going over her head to make a deal with Scott Baldwin didn't result in Ric Lansing being named as a drug lord instead of Faux Luke.

    Franco cares.
    Someone had to look after Carly with Luke missing and all. Now that Franco and Carly's road trip to see Spinelli that I blogged about last week accomplished what they needed it will take some time to find out how much their discovery that Ava shot Connie will impact their family now that Sonny knows.

    Friday follow-up.
    For shame! Shame on Julian for lying to Alexis. He almost came clean, and why he didn't is a mystery. Shame on Alexis for not believing Ric. Shame on Morgan for making advances toward Olivia. She didn't seem to consider them which is good for Morgan because this could have been the second in a string of revenge rebound relationships since he came back to Port Charles and lost Kiki. If Olivia falls into anyone's arms, maybe it could be Duke's once Anna sees the light and kicks him to the curb for ruining her career over and over and over again. Shame on Ava for being Ava. Last but not least, shame on the writers for leaving us hanging over the weekend after being taunted by Faux Luke.

    Julian's lie.
    It was one of the most disappointing moments of the week when Julian gave up Ric Lansing as the head of the Jerome crime family. Was it worth it? Take Soaps.com's General Hospital Poll to tell us.

    Let's digress.

    The baby was finally named – Gabriel Drake Santiago.

    Off-screen miss – Alice playing with Rocco, fans would have loved to see that.

    Best dressed – Elizabeth for her date with Ric.

    Creepiest quote – Sonny to Ava, "I wouldn't bed you with AJ Quartermaine's corpse after what you did."

    Creepiest kiss – Luke kissing Olivia. Kind of surpasses the creepiness of Faison kissing Anna.

    Best reveal – Olivia dropping the bombshell to Carly that Sonny slept with Ava.

    Best hair – Nik had the best hair this week.

    Weird habit sighting - Sonny crunching on ice cubes and limes while threatening Ava with a gun.

    Sexcapades part two – Kudos to all the loving that continued into this week.

    Best lines of the week.

    Franco, "I'm an artist." Ric, "Apparently so was Manson."

    Faux Luke to Olivia, "Why don't we go somewhere quiet. You can undress your feelings."

    Faux Luke planning honeymoon, "Just get me and the ball and chain out of town tonight….use a credit card, an ELQ credit card of course."

    Luke to Julian, "Never underestimate the power of telling people they're right."

    I started considering this a couple weeks ago about Fluke. Most people can;t get past it being Anthony Z, but as often as people come back from the dead it is pretty much impossible after multiple people played "Weekend at Bernies" with the corpse. The only person that makes sense at this point is the presumed dead Trevor Lansing. He hated Sonny, couldn't care less about Ric and even hated him towards the end of his run, and he basically ran the Zachara mob family for years while Anthony was "nuts". The usual suspects like Jerry J and Faison don't have the backstory to explain being able to run the Jerome crime family for years now. They were always working on other things and drug smuggling seems to pedestrian for both of them.

    Hi, I have been back watching GE for the last few years, so I am not privy, to a lot of background stories. I have watched a lot back when Dr. Hardy, Audrey, Nurse Jessie, Dr. Brewer, etc, etc. were on...
    Now back to today, a thought crossed my mind, could Fluke be actually Victor Jerome, Julians Father... Julian seems to hate him, but look what he is willing to do now.... still somewhat protecting that "Fluke".... and of course if Fluke is Victor Jerome, that would make him Ava's Father, Kiki's Grandfather, and yes how sick can you get, a grandfahter fondling his own granddaughter.... worse things have happened....
    Victor still being alive, could make room for the Jerome Family to grow in PC, never know when Sonny might get fazed out of the SL's... Just a thought.
    Don't think it could be Anthony Zaccarra, he was a little man, how could they match up the Body Size, and how would Tracey feel someday, actually having slept with her "Husband"Anthony Z... LOL.
    Don't know who Trevor Lansing is,didn't watch back then.
    Like reading your stuff "unusualpsycho"...hope you keep on posting.

    Here we go again, lost my post....

    I did not like that Julian lied to Alexis.....and framed Rick....but why,...... safety of his family, or Fluke being his father Victor Jerome...

    I like Elisabeth wit Rick, Nick and her have be done to much already, it doesn't work, get over it already, don't
    rehash...
    Ava being pregnant, tells me even more that the Jerome family will be big in PC for the next few years... Julian signed a 4 year contract...Will they keep both families, the Jerome's and the Corinthos', we'll see.

    I enjoy Franco and Carly together right now, maybe not for ever, but for a filler in, they are fun..

    Tracey must enjoy sex with Fluke so much, that her brain is not functioning anymore, hormone's are in charge, period, she does not see anymore, not even a gun to her son's head... LOL, How can the Real Luke, once he returns Ever Live up to the "Fluke", maybe then she will finally notice the difference, poor Tracey, poor little rich gir.....

    Florentine--I like your theory about Trevor Lansing.

    Something was said about Nina being pregnant and that's why her mother OD'd her keeps me wondering if Kiki is Silas and Nina's daughter and not Ava's. That would keep GH from going down the sick and warped road but stranger things have happened at GH. I'm also betting that Robin had something to do with Nina's recovery.

    As for Fluke, I am trying to remember all the letches that have lived in Port Charles that could be the double. Not sure if it could be Luke's red-headed cousin, Bill Eckert that supposedly died in Luke's arms. I think Trevor fits.
