    Buried Deep.

    Monday, October 18 2010
    Dante and Brenda have more memories, Lisa continues to taunt the Drakes, and Lucky and Siobhan face more danger.


    Lisa approaches Patrick in the locker room in her lingerie. Patrick tells Lisa her dog and pony show isn't working on him and declares she can flaunt her body all she wants, but he will never touch her again. Lisa just throws more insults Robin's way and defends herself in the whole drugging/well episode. She leaves a frustrated Patrick in the locker room, as Robin walks in. He tells her he's trying to get people to see that Lisa is the crazy one, not her. Robin worries if Lisa keeps this up, she might end up the crazy one. Lisa returns once Patrick has left and the women get into it. After Lisa taunts her about Patrick, Robin slaps her. Lisa leaves and Patrick returns to an upset Robin who worries Lisa will run to Steve about what just happened and she doesn't know whose side he will take.



    At the hub, Steve questions Epiphany about whether or not she believes Lisa is capable of the things Robin is accusing her of. Epiphany doesn’t want to get involved but she doesn’t think Lisa is crazy. Lisa walks up and tells Steve she needs to tell him something.



    After sleeping with Siobhan, Lucky gets dressed and starts to leave their room, but she wakes up and accuses him of sneaking out. He says he just needs to find Brenda and then he'll be back. She wants to go with him.



    Lucky and Siobhan try to blend in while looking for Brenda in Rome. Lucky subtly asks around about Brenda, as The Balkan's men lurk. Lucky questions a maid at Brenda's former hotel, who tells him Brenda has gone to Port Charles. Lucky tells Siobhan she has to go to the States with him for her own safety. The Balkan's men approach them and grab Siobhan when Lucky won't play ball with them. One of them orders 'Ronan' to kill Siobhan now.



    In Brenda's room at the penthouse, Dante wants to make sure they are on the same page and that no will find out what they did. He says he tried to keep what happened buried deep, but it was hard every time he saw her in a magazine. She says everything was her fault, as Sonny knocks on the door. Dante opens it pretending she summoned him there to talk about the car bombing. The men argue and Dante leaves.


    Dante runs downstairs keeping up his act by insisting Jason tell Brenda to stay out of his investigation and leaves. Jason tells Spinelli that doesn't make sense because Brenda wants to stay away from Sonny. Spinelli then tells Jason he can't find anything about The Balkan online and he doesn't even know what to look for. Jason thinks Brenda knows who The Balkan is.

    Still upstairs, Sonny and Brenda have another debate about why they should and shouldn't be together. He draws near to her, but she doesn't want him to touch her. Jason walks in and Brenda adamantly says, "I don't want you to touch me." Sonny wonders what's wrong with her, but she doesn't want to talk. Sonny leaves and Jason demands she start being honest with him. Brenda gets upset and Jason says he'll be downstairs when she's ready because they need to talk.


    Back downstairs, Jason again asks Brenda what she knows about The Balkan. She won't talk, which makes Jason angrier. He's tired of her lying to him and he doesn't want to see anyone get hurt because of this. She tells him she hates him and walks out on the terrace as Jason leaves. Sonny returns and Jason tells him to deal with Brenda himself. Sonny finds Brenda on the terrace, as she recalls Dante finding her on a rooftop and hugging him. In present day, Brenda turns around and hugs Sonny.



    Lulu finds an irate Carly at the Metro Court who is up in arms about Brenda's influence on the men in Port Charles. Luke walks in to see Carly and lays on the charm. Carly wonders how much this is going to cost her. Luke wants a suite on the house and she agrees, but says it will cost him a favor down the road. Carly walks away and Lulu and Luke catch each other up on their separate adventures in Ireland. Later, after Carly gives Luke his room key and a few warnings about his indulgences, Ethan walks in and fills his father in about his beating courtesy of The Balkan. Luke, in turn, updates him on Lucky's case in Ireland. Jason is next to meet with Luke, who is worried The Balkan will reach out to Jason and Sonny to harm him. Across the way, Mayor Floyd tells Ronnie he wants him to get Dante off the force. Ronnie balks, so the Mayor infers he knows Ronnie got rid of Sonny's gun when Johnny was shot. Floyd wants Sonny stopped and encourages Ronnie to dig up or plant something that will get Dante thrown off the force. Ronnie can't believe the Mayor wants him to break the law, but Floyd retorts that sometimes the end justifies the means.



    Dante returns home and after he looks at a photo of Brenda in a magazine, goes off on Michael for getting busted for a parole violation. Lulu walks in and Michael storms off after Dante goes too far. Dante beats himself up about how he handled things with Michael, but Lulu tells him he has a right to be furious with Michael. She tells him he's perfect, as Dante has the same memory of finding Brenda on a rooftop.

    Why is Lisa showing up in the locker room in her underwear? Honey, Patrick has seen it all before and more. Go stand on a street corner.

    I need to know the entire story between Dante and Brenda NOW!! Stop teasing me.

    I am waiting for Carly's head to explode.

    Robin had the nerve to ask Patrick why didn't he just walk away from Lisa. That's what I have been asking her. Lisa called Robin pathetic and Robin gave it right back to her. Robin said she ambushed Patrick in her underwear, that's pathetic.

    Mayor Floyd telling Ronnie that Dante was a crooked cop was laughable. The Mayor and Ronnie are the crooked ones. They are both crooked, dumb and too stupid to catch Sonny.

    Dante really tore into Michael. I wonder if it was really about Michael or this situation with Brenda.

    Hindsight is 20-20, but when Brenda first returned to GH, I posted then that using the whole Balkan threat as plot device to force Brenda to come back was completely unnecessary. On her first day, she should’ve come back to see her good friend Robin when she needed all the support she could get. Running into Sonny in that context would’ve been much more plausible, and would’ve eliminated a lot of this back and forth stuff. In fact, everything that happened in Rome, including the ridiculous part about Sonny shooting Johnny (on video?!), being arrested, jumping bail, going to Rome to see Brenda only to turn around and go back to find all charges dropped, could’ve been done without. All that did was make Sonny look bad anyway, in much the same way that the idea of Brenda as a virtual prisoner in PC while her life is in danger has added nothing to the story as far as I can see. If she had come back to see Robin, she wouldn’t have had to stay with Jason. Jax and Carly could be fighting over Brenda staying at the MetroCourt, and Jason wouldn’t be dealing with a pink penthouse, or Spinelli on Brenda overload.

    We should’ve only heard of the Balkan through Lucky’s investigation alone, and then learned that Dante had some prior experience with him. Brenda’s realtionship with Dante could’ve been revealed shortly afterwards, and the Balkan could still be the reason why they were both involved in the past, and keeping secrets now. Then, it could’ve come out of the blue that the Balkan wanted “Ronan” to kidnap Brenda Barrett. Now THAT would’ve been a “WHOA!” moment that would've tied all the plot lines together. We would’ve reached the point where Brenda and Dante had just found out that their encounter in the past with the Balkan was threatening to come back to haunt them in the present, which is pretty much where we are now.

    Wouldn’t that have been better, or more logical? Tidier at least?

    Suzanne is a welcome addition, but we didn’t need Murphy, any of the attempts on Brenda’s life, Jason or Sonny in Rome, or Rome at all, or Brenda in Jason’s penthouse. That’s all been a waste of time in getting to this point.

    ****Spolier Talk****
    I read that the secret that Brenda is keeping could harm most of Port Charles. I don't think Dante and her having a romantic relationship would count as most of Port Charles.
    End of Spoiler**

    Carly loving how she's running all over town talking about "Brenda" she is so insecure and the way Jax keeps day dreaming about Brenda maybe Carly should be worried.

    Jax- I think Jax knows he treated Brenda badly and is trying to be he friend to make up for the wrongs he has done. He has forgiving Carly for sleeping with Sonny all those times, yet left Brenda at the alte for just kissing Sonny.

    LuLu gets on my last nerve, she is going to be blown away when it comes out about Brenda and Dante's past.


    Claire Why she is going to investiage Brenda for. And why hasn't Claire and Sonny come face to face yet. I can't wait for showdown with Brenda and Carly, I think Carly will finally meet her match in Brenda I can't wait.

    Agreed. Mr Guza and staff are digging deep into the box of "Plot Line Helper". The plots are light and fluffy, and just not filling. Kinda makes you wonder "where's the beef?"...

    Posted by galwaygirl at Monday, October 18 2010 01:39 PM

    I wish Brenda and Dante would run off together so we wouldn't have to watch them anymore. Whiners are irritating.

    If we're lucky, the Balkan will kidnap Lisa and Robin's torture will abate.

    Any other ideas?

    Posted by lvegh at Monday, October 18 2010 01:41 PM

    Sorry meant Claire and Brenda.

    Posted by REALMENLUVGH at Monday, October 18 2010 01:45 PM

    I think we should pony up some funds for Scrimmage (double what he is being paid now) to write an "Alternative Universe" storyline. We have seen glimpses of it, and it is a darned sight more entertaining on the whole than what we are seeing on the boob (sorry Lisa N.) tube now...

    Posted by Diana8254 at Monday, October 18 2010 01:53 PM

    Ronnie will dig into Dante's past for the mayor and find out what Dante and Brenda are hiding. Haven't figured out what Brenda's connection is to The Balkan and how Dante may figure into it.

    Posted by REALMENLUVGH at Monday, October 18 2010 01:56 PM

    Yeah, Lisa gets kidnapped by the Balkan...he then pays Patrick to take the Road Lizard off of his hands (or forces Patrick to take Lisa at gunpoint)...not sure what the endgame is with the Crazy One...I thought she'd be gone for at least a couple of days.

    But I tell you what I want; those anti crazy meds that she took to get back on the job so fast. I mean, some days are just...crazy...and you have no idea of how you will get through. Pop a couple of the Shadybrook Sliders, and you are good to go...

    Hi everyone, new to Soaps,
    I think my mind is running, but I think Brenda might have been involed in sex trafficing, that's probably why she is invested to the cause, Dante may have been the one to have saved her from the one who is after her now, The Balken? Maybe??? I thought it was kind of odd when she told Sonny not to touch her. IDK?
