    Game Over.

    Tuesday, August 24 2010
    Claire nails Sonny, Patrick breaks Robin's heart, and Sam and Jason make a break for it.


    Sam and Jason act like a couple bickering over getting lost in order to get around the cop who questions them. After the officer has left, Jason says they need to get rid of the van. They grab some supplies out of it and then blow it up. They make a run for it, but Sam twists her ankle. Jason picks her up and carries her away to a spot in the woods where they get cozy for the night.



    Murphy surprises Brenda in Rome. They talk about his movie career which segues into discussing Brenda's past. Murphy then asks her to go to Lake Como with him for a few days, but she can't because of work commitments. He tells her she can tell him if she doesn't love him, but she thinks it's more complicated than that. She's just not ready to give up her whole life for someone again, not even someone as sweet as him. He's not asking her to do that – he just wants her to live with him. She thinks he deserves the crazy passionate love she's talking about, but she doesn't have that to give anymore. She does agree to go away with him though and they head out. Once they've left, the mysterious man goes out to the balcony.



    At the Drake residence, Lisa tries to innocently explain away her taking Emma, but Patrick and Robin are livid. Robin orders Lisa to stay away from her family and suggests she get some help. Lisa thinks they are overreacting and leaves. Once she's gone, a torn up Patrick tells his wife this is all his fault. He tears up as he tells her he slept with Lisa. A stunned Robin very calmly says that explains a lot. She wonders why she isn't enough for him, demanding he give her details. He insists it was only one time, but that's more than enough for Robin. She wonders if he wants to be with Lisa, but he vows he only wants her. She doesn't think he knows what love is because if he did he wouldn’t have trashed their marriage. Patrick thinks they can get past this, but Robin takes their wedding photo and throws it against the door. She orders him to get out because she will not look at him pouting any longer. After Patrick has gone, Robin breaks down in tears.



    At Sonny's place, Ronnie tells Dante Johnny was unarmed when Sonny shot him. Dante accuses his father of lying to him, but Sonny defends himself before he is hauled away.



    Diane meets Ronnie and Sonny as they come to the station. Diane tells Ronnie even if he can prove Sonny is guilty, he can't prove it was premeditated. Claire walks up and says she can. She plays a tape of Sonny mapping out how he would kill Johnny. She says it will be admissible because she was at Sonny's by his invitation and it will prove he fully intended on killing Johnny. Sonny asks to talk with Claire alone. He vows to her he is innocent and waives his rights when she reminds him she can use what he says against him. He recounts what happened with Johnny but Claire accuses him of trying to manipulate her. He declares he didn’t do it but she tells him their game is over and he lost.



    Michael meets Jax at the Metro Court bar and learns Sonny was arrested for shooting Johnny.



    Johnny loses consciousness in the hospital and is rushed into surgery. Lucky asks Ethan what he really knows about the shooting. Ethan just says Sonny has a history of pulling his gun unprovoked. Lucky then runs into Dante who thinks Sonny had his shot and he took it. Next, Lucky questions Maya, who doesn't have much info to give. Michael comes to the hospital and asks Dante how Johnny is. Dante doesn’t think he should be here, but Michael wants to know what really happened. Dante tells him Johnny wasn't armed, but Michael thinks otherwise. Lisa comes to the nurses' station and asks Steve if he wants to go out for a beer at Jake's. Steve wonders what happened with Emma and Lisa explains Robin and Patrick overreacted. She thinks Robin is just paranoid and wonders why it always has to be just a big drama with her. She turns her back and smugly smiles.

    Ethan comforts Kristina.

    Maxie counsels Robin.

    Lulu wants to take a break.

    Dante tricked me yesterday. I thought he was going to think for himself. He allowed Ronnie to manipulate him and change the way he was thinking.

    They should throw out Claire and her taped confession of Sonny. She has already been compromised going around begging the man for his sperm.

    Robin, you should have opened up a can on Lisa.

    Go ahead Ethan and explain to Lucky your statment about Johnny should have seen this coming.

    I can't believe my luck. Just as Patrick was confessing that he cheated, they interrupted the show about a child abduction. Why don't these crazy people leave folks kids
    alone.

    Lucky needs to arrest his brother for lying and sit him right beside Johnny in a jail cell.

    I see Patrick wants to blame it on the alcohol. You wanted Lisa when you were sober and working with her at the hospital. Acting all jealous when she works with Steven. You weren't drinking then.

    I can't believe I missed the last 30 minutes of the show because some idiot wants to take a child that does not belong to him. At least they caught the creep. Big Dummy.

    I guess I will have to catch it on soapnet. I don't know what I'm going to do when soapnet goes off the air in 2012.

    What makes Lisa think that Steve would ever want to have a drink with her ever again.

    I can strangle that Patrick for hurting my little Robin.

    And I have every confidence in Lucky to get to the truth. Most cops on soaps are dumb, but not Lucky.

    Sonny tried to do the right thing, tell the truth and turn himself in and where did it get him.

    Sonny, just go back to being the way you were. Being honest gets you nowhere. Especially when you have dirty cops on the force.

    Cowboy: Every got naked and did a dance the last 30 minutes of the show today...sorry you missed it.......

    Felt so sorry for Robin today. She was so disappointed and broken. Broke my heart. What a betrayal .

    The Sonny story is stupid. We see the promos that he goes after Brenda so we know he's going to get off so why do this now? Boring. Too much police station scenes.

    “They make a run for it, but Sam twists her ankle.”

    Gee Sam, do you think it might have anything to do with your idiotic choice of footwear?

    As Bugs Bunny would say: "What a maroon!"

    This is specifically for

    scrimmage...as I know you are aware of your tv/movie history

    OFF TOPIC

    You may or may not have seen this in your local newspaper..
    I noticed it in the Arizona Republic:

    Edward Kean, 85 died at a nursing-care facility in a Detroit suburb.

    Who was Edward Kean ??? He was the primary writer of the "Howdy Doody Show"

    Why is that important you ask ???

    Well for one thing...think of how popular the "Toy Story" series have been....there is a nostalgic reason for that success....AND he was said to be the originator of the saying "kowabunga" while writng for the "Howdy Doody Show" and NOT Bart Simpson as some younger viewers may surmise...

    You see...some things aren't always as new as you think.

    Scrimmage I know you push for storylines over special effects violence for the sake of ratings...so keep up the good fight....and I will return to my AMC message board to do the same.......It appears to be an uphill battle (good storylines)...but, the glass if always half-full of something...

    Never fear Cowboys Fan you can catch it all on Youtube and the huge perk is that you can fast forward through the parts you dont like!! Me lately Straight though any thing with Lulu and Clarie lol!!!

    Looks like another murder in PC Lisa will end up dead and Robin will be the one in trouble. Robin has a meltdown at the hospital and Lisa goes to the police.

    Cowboys Fan, I think Wade Phillips proved he can win one game in the playoffs. As much as I hope so I don't think he can win the big one. I still miss Jimmy Johnson!!!!!

    Dante did not trick me. I knew this would happen. That missing weapon is the key. Dante can't refute that. Dante wants to believe Sonny. However, he wont trust Sonny blindly. At least not yet. He loves Sonny he just dont trust him. The unfortunate thing is he dont like Claire or Ronnie but he does trust them. Boy will Dante be shattered to find out Ronnie and Claire are as bad as his father. His illusions of the criminal justice system will be tested.

    If anyone needs to open up a can it is Robin on Patrick and Lisa. Stupid Patrick started thinking with the wrong head. He is going to pay for that.

    Lucky, overhearing Etan and Johnny will save Sonny. Dante will re-think his position on Sonny. Dante has and will invested himself emotionally on Sonny. There is no turning back for Dante. Sonny has almost won him over. Not to the darkside but as his son.

    I hope they find that child. The should be a special prison in Guantanamo for the idiots that hurt children.

    Am I the only one excited for a Robin/Lisa confrontation. Lisa needs to pay and now. I hope Robin wipes the floor with Lisa! Hi fellow posters!

    Posted by leo123 at Tuesday, August 24 2010 02:02 PM

    Well Sonny will never give himself up again, after this fiasco. He should offer to take a lie detector test, and Ronnie and Ethan should be forced to take one.
    We know Sam is short, but how stupid is she to be wearing high heels on a venture like that one.
    Jason should buy her a pair of black sneakers.
