    Best Laid Plans.

    Wednesday, February 02 2011
    Lucky's plan hits a snag, Nikolas becomes jealous, Terrell crashes and burns, and Dante is racked with guilt.


    After Siobhan talks with the Balkan on the phone outside, Shawn bumps into her and says he's working for Theo. He asks her what she remembers about her time being held by the Balkan. She tries to put him off, but he makes veiled threats about her immigration status. Siobhan gets nervous, but then Molly happens upon them and is excited to see Shawn. As they talk, Siobhan slips away. Molly tells him about her therapy and he shares he goes to support groups. She invites him to a group she's going to that includes a lot of veterans. He suggests she just stick to her therapist, because listening to a lot of vets could be too intense.



    Lucky meets with Jason and Dante at the restaurant office. He tells them why Siobhan is working for the Balkan, but Dante still doesn't trust her. Dante leaves to talk to Abby and Lucky defends his belief in Siobhan to Jason. Lucky says he and Dante don't have to believe him, but once he and Siobhan catch the Balkan, they will owe them one hell of an apology.



    After Lucky and Siobhan go over their plan, Siobhan meets with the Balkan in the confessional. Lucky sits in a pew hoping to get a look at the Balkan as he exits the confessional, but Shawn knocks him out from behind.



    Michael visits Abby in the hospital and says if Brandon did rape her, it's okay to tell him about it. Carly listens in from the hallway as Michael admits to Abby he was raped in prison. Abby cries as she promises she wasn't raped because he saved her. Carly walks in and apologies to Abby. She knows Abby has been a good friend to Michael and she is glad he was able to help her. Abby is grateful and calls Michael an amazing man. Carly leaves and Dante returns to question Abby. Michael decides to also tell his brother about his rape in Pentonville. Stunned, Dante blames himself, but Michael doesn't blame him. Dante says Michael's a better man than he's ever been. Dante tells him he can just sign a statement about Abby's attack, but Michael wants to testify. Dante tells Abby she has a hell of a friend. Abby concurs, "The best I've ever had." Once alone, Abby asks if Michael is going to tell his father about the rape. Michael doesn’t know if he can do that. He also doesn’t know how he's going to be able to tell a complete stranger in therapy what happened to him. However, he says stopping Brandon helped him take some of his power back.



    Suzanne visits Brenda at the penthouse upon returning from Somalia. She was near the town where she lost the baby. Brenda tells her it's okay to talk about it now. Brenda doesn't want to keep secrets from Sonny now that she's marrying him. Suzanne thinks she could just not marry him. Brenda is tired of hearing that and says they are getting married no matter what. Once Suzanne is gone, Carly bursts in and Brenda asks her not to go to Sonny because she and Jax are done now. Carly tells her there are more important things going on like what's going on with her kids. Brenda questions her about what's going on, but Carly says it's none of her business. Carly leaves and Jason returns home. He tells Brenda Siobhan has been working for the Balkan, who plans to grab her at her wedding.



    Shaken, Dante enters his loft and thinks about his part in sending Michael to prison. Carly knocks on his door. He lets her in and tells her he knows about Michael. Carly lashes out at him for what he's done. She picks up Dante's gun and points it at him, saying he deserves to rot in hell for what he did to her kid. He says she should pull the trigger because she can't possibly hate him more than he hates himself.



    Epiphany gives Terrell a gift Robin left for him for helping her out with her garage door. Lisa sees it and asks what his next move is. Terrell says he's going to ask her out for dinner on Valentines' Day. Lisa thinks he's overreaching, but he's confident. Robin steps off the elevator and Terrell heads over to her. Patrick interrupts them to discuss Valentine's Day plans regarding Emma. The parents walk away and Lisa calls Terrell out on failing with Robin, but Terrell is undeterred. Later, Terrell asks Robin if she has plans for Valentine's Day. She tells him she has a hot date at the cupcake shop.



    Nikolas and Brook dine with a business associate, who is taken with Brook. Nikolas is clearly unnerved by the man, who asks Brook out. Nikolas says they have a previous engagement in Manhattan so Brook is unavailable. After the man leaves, Brook accuses Nikolas of being jealous. Nikolas thinks maybe they should go out for real and Brook rips up the man's business card and says maybe they should.


    Tomorrow's Port Charles spoilers for All My Children:

    Dante considers quitting the force.

    Sonny has another nightmare.

    Lisa sabotages Robin and Patrick's plans.

    Well, we had a Suzanne sighting today. She brought up Brenda losing her baby, so I guess she really did have a mis-carriage.

    I'm glad Robin is not going out on a date with Terrell. Let him ask psycho out for Valentine's day. Lord knows she won't have a date. I don't think Boris Karloff can create another Frankenstein in time to ask her out.

    And Dante, shut up about Lucky being fooled by Siobhan. Lucky is ten times the detective you are. Even though rignt now, his face has met the floor. Because Shawn just knocked him the f???? out.

    Nikolas got a case of the green-eyed monster when that guy asked Brook Lynn out.

    I know it's cold almost every where and Hell is indeed freezing over, because Carly apologized to Abby.

    Shawn can be so sweet with Molly. It's like he is two different people.

    I was glad to hear that Michael didn't get into trouble for beating the crap out of that scum bucket. He was so sweet, offering to testify for Abby if it would help her case.

    I knew Dante was going to feel really bad after Michael told him about being raped in prison. Then in walks Carly the pit bull. Blaming Dante for everything. Nothing is ever her fault. She should be trying to help Michael, but no. She has to spew her venom.

    HELP! This d@mn weather machine isn’t even plugged in but it’s sucking all the electrical power out of the grid. It’s already knocked out 50 generating stations causing the power company to create “rolling blackouts” to prevent a total shutdown. They haven’t traced it back to me yet, but it’s only a matter of time.

    Have you seen ESPN’s outdoor studio in downtown FT. Worth? They’re absolutely miserable, not to mention out there all by themselves. Whose stupid idea was it to broadcast from outside in February? At least the NFL Network had the sense to be indoors.

    Some reactions to yesterday’s late posts.

    Storm04 wrote: “...to me Carly acts like she was raised in a trailer park, and that is why I always refer to her that way...”

    That’s an insult to everybody who lives, or has ever lived in a trailer park.

    Beenaroundalongtime wrote: “What if Lily returns?”

    Well, the real Lilly is dead, but I seem to remember that Alcazar had a woman surgically altered to be her double in an attempt to convince Sonny he was going crazy or something like that. That woman is probably still walking around with Lilly’s face.

    4myJylli wrote: “…why is the entire town of PC all up in arms about Sonny/Brenda getting married. Why can’t these two grown adults have their happily ever-after without everyone spewing about what happened in the past?”

    Your question made me wonder what would it be like in real life if, every time some couple announced their engagement, people on both sides who were convinced it was a bad idea went out of their way to make sure they never got married, using blackmail or sabotage. Who knows, it might cut down on the divorce rate.

    Ransomha wrote: “… the main reason for the cover up was that Michael wouldn't be known as “the kid who killed his step mother."

    Well it worked! Now he’s known as “the brain damaged kid who killed his step mother and went to prison.”

    Ransomha also wrote: “Siobhan can have Theo in her apartment and 15 minutes later speak to him on the phone and not put 2 and 2 together.”

    I guess all Americans sound alike to Shaboom. LOL!

    Poodles wrote: “If the writer's expect us to believe, Dante who was raised by a single mother in a devout catholic, traditional Italian family, would give up all his rights to his child to an emotionally unstable super model...their NUTS…”

    I think Aleksander was the babies’ father and Dante only claimed paternity and signed the papers so Brenda would have the proper documentation to insure her full custody of the child and keep him safe from the Aleksander’s family – the Balkan.

    I’m skeptical, but those of you who are speculating on the possibility that Brenda’s baby is still alive should keep in mid that he’d be almost four years old (Jake’s age?) by now.

    I like Molly and Shaun talking today. He was so right about her being in another group. She shouldn't be in theraphy with veterans. Their problems are so much worse than hers and Molly hearing that may make her worse.

    I usually don't post on these boards, but I'm home sick with the flu and watching Carly today just made me have to get something off my chest, besides the mucus building up in it!

    Carly used to be one of my favorite characters, until she became completely unhinged. If she would take responsibility for "something"...ANYTHING, I would be so happy. Did she ever consider that if she had made better choices as a mother to Michael, Michael wouldn't have been in a position to have to kill his stepmother to "save his mother and baby sister".

    She took him from AJ and the Quartermaines to what:

    a) be kidnapped
    b) have to go to "the island" many times to get away from being kidnapped or murdered
    c) have a nervous breakdown where he had an imaginary friend
    d) act like a gangster to his classmates in school
    e) shoot a woman in the chest
    f) get shot in the head and be in a coma for months
    g) kill his stepmom with an ax
    h) get raped in prison

    I know I have to have missed something. Carly's not alone in any of this. The "wonderful/great" Dad Sonny had a lot to do with it. Remember when Carly found out Alexis was pregnant and she thought it might be for Sonny and she told Alexis to tell Sonny the truth because he was such a 'great Dad'. Yeah, Kristina's living proof of that!

    I wish Michael would find out about Carly's "conversation" with Sonny and just finally be the one to tell her...YOU DID IT! YOU MADE STUPID CHOICES FOR MY LIFE AND YOU GOT ME TO THIS POINT! I'm a Mom and and I know as a Mom you don't want outsiders making choices that affect your kid's life. But when your choices have been so dumba$$, then maybe an outsider needs to step in.

    Sidenote: Did Jax's adoption of Morgan EVER go through?

    I can not STAND Siobhan! Hate that character.

    And finally, Shawn is FINE!!!!!!!

    Posted by CdaFanEN at Wednesday, February 02 2011 02:00 PM

    Molly may be annoying as all get out but she had impeccable timing today! She certainly came to Siobhan's rescue just in the nick of time. But WTF is up with all that make-up they have been slathering on her face lately?! I noticed it the other week too and find it really very disturbing that a 12 year old would be going to school in full-on eyeshadow, lipstick and are those false eyelashes with copious mascara?!? They need to fix that!

    Please oh please soap gods, let a rational person walk through Dante's door, see the raving lunatic with a gun and just shoot that b!tch finally!! (I must state that even though I LOATHE Carly I think LW does a terrific job).

    Chad Duell has just been outstanding lately!! That young man had better get Emmy nods for this work. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Guza actually gives this s/l the time it deserves to play out. But it's more likely that Michael will be all hunky-dory by next week and we'll never hear about the rape ever again - unless of course, Carly needs to blame Dante for something else SHE did and then she'll start waving guns around and blaming him for everything. He is Keiser Soza after all.

    Hello all:

    Shaboom kept her mouth closed when talking with Shawn but she tipped Mr. Egg Head off from the getgo when she called and asked for a meeting… wasn’t a smart move.

    Talk about stupid move, why didn’t Jason at least tried to work with Lucky and check out the meeting place? The problem here is that we have too many alpha dogs on this op. Then you had Dante accusing Lucky of being too blinded by love to see that Shaboom could be using him. I would say that he need to take the beam out of his eyes first but that won’t do a lick of luck because then he would still need to deal with the 10 inch thick scales that remain. Lucky told them to have Spin check out Shaboom’s story but Jason said that it won’t prove that she is not holding something back, can you say double standards? How long did it take for Brenda to finally cough up the fact that she had killed Alexander and that’s why Balkan is after her? This was a missed opportunity for the home team.

    It was nice of Carly to visit and check on Abby. I think that overhearing the convo between Michael and Abby gave her an insight into how helpful she has been for him given what he had gone through. I don’t think that these two will become good friends but I was glad, not surprise, to see that she has set aside her issues to express her appreciation for the role that Abby has been playing in his life.

    Talk of the devil and she shows up in all black. That’s what we get when wee keep asking, where is Suzanne? So I guess that she knew about the baby but not about the Alexander cover-up, hmm. Brenda should stop talking about thinking of telling Sonny the truth and be like Nike and just do it.She would be saving herself and everyone else a lot of drama.

    That girl does not know when to shut up. I don’t mind her giving it to Carly but if the woman is not messing with you then don’t mess with her. She must have cotton for brains if she thought that Carly would discuss her kid’s problem with her…freaking unbelievable. Her new slogan now is “I am going to marry Sonny, or this wedding is going to happen”. She mentioned that in every convo today multiple times. She missed the memo that no one gives a hoot either way.

    Jason, you are trying my patience just as much as Brenda is trying yours. Let the Ninkumpoop do what she wants and let the Balkan have at her. No one should be subjected to that level of stupidity, self-involvement and obliviousness for any extended period of time. Has she once thought during one of her “you are going to make sure that it doesn’t happen” speal that Jason or the rest of the people trying to make her wedding safe could get killed? Let’s face it, the only people who really care about her wedding are herself, Sonny, and Robin. Everyone else who will be present couldn’t care less. Given that, she should just get married in Sonny’s living room.

    So Susanne, and her boobs are back.

    Now I understand where the nickname "dick" came from for a detective . Lucky, GET A NEW JOB!

    Molly should not be hanging out with this strange, hugh, man in town. Really! She needs to be watch way more closely. This is crazy. She's suppose to be like 11 or 12 and she's hanging out with this man? NO WAY in the real world. A grown man wouldn't put himself in a situation that he could be accused of anything either. Looked to be evening, and they stopped for drinks.

    Go team Carley. Way to step up for your son. Smart to go to Abby's room . Carley knows her mistakes concerning Michael and she's going to be darn sure Dante knows his too. I must say, he looked devastated.

    I MISS SONNY!

    Robin, look at Terrell, then look at Patrick. Ok enough said.

    more later...Poodles, husband is at airport in New Orleans, so far so good......

    ***********************Spoiler**********************

    Molly will catch Shawn messing with Sonny's car!

    Posted by Diana8254 at Wednesday, February 02 2011 02:15 PM

    I am not a Carly fant but when she was talking with Jax regarding Brenda she mentioned that Michael had been going thru alot and she needed him but he was gone to London to help Brenda. I can see why she feels the way she does but even with all the signs Michael was giving out no one was catching on except Jason.
