    Clink. Boom. Redux.

    Thursday, February 24 2011
    Sonny and Brenda's happy day ends in an unexpected way, Dante appeals to Lulu, and Michael and Abby grow closer.


    After getting punched out at Lulu's, Dante notes she has a nice right hook. She can't believe he didn't tell her about Brenda's baby. Dante didn't think it mattered because the baby wasn't his and it didn't survive anyway. He promises there are no more lies. It doesn't matter to Lulu because she won't be able to trust him. Dante tries to convince her otherwise, but Lulu doesn't think they work. He made a mistake and she can't get over it. He thinks she's just looking for a reason to bail and he's given it to her. She thinks she set the bar too high and expected him to be perfect. He's committed to making this work and asks her to meet him half way, or even a tenth of the way. Lulu says she misses him. He thinks that's a good start. She wants them to be as happy as they were, but they aren't there yet. He agrees to leave her alone, but he reserves the right to fight for her tomorrow and the days after that. He tells her he loves her and leaves, as Lulu cries.



    As they dance, Brenda tells her husband she will never be known as Brenda Barrett again. She is now officially Brenda Corinthos. Sonny is happy to say they are husband and wife and he kisses his bride. Out in the corridor, Molly and Morgan interrupt Michael as he is about to kiss Abby. Meanwhile, Tracy tells Luke he needs to stop Dante from working his way back into Lulu's life. Luke doesn’t want to get involved, but says he already gave his daughter his advice on love. On the dance floor, Patrick dances with Carly, who notes he's pining over Robin. She admits she's bad at the happy, love thing, but wishes him luck. At a nearby table, Brook Lynn questions Nikolas on his issues with Sonny. Nikolas won't go into their past, but he says he made a promise to his mother to be civil. He mentions he told Laura about her. Brook wonders what he said. Nikolas relayed to Laura that Brook works for him and he holds her in high regard. Michael brings Abby inside the reception and introduces her to Edward, who is taken by her. He wonders how the two became acquainted and Molly jumps in asking Edward to dance. Carly walks over to her son and Abby and says she's glad Sonny invited her. Morgan asks his mother to dance, as Michael kisses Abby on the cheek. Robin clinks her glass to get the room's attention and makes a speech, wishing Sonny and Brenda a lifetime of happiness. Michael, Morgan, Molly and Kristina all speak as well and express their happiness for the couple and welcome Brenda to the family. Sonny is next. He tells the kids how much he loves them. He also says Brenda makes his life complete and he can't wait to spend the rest of his life with her. The Corinthos' cut the cake and when it's time to toss the bouquet, Abby asks Michael to walk her home. She says her goodbyes to Sonny and Brenda, who are happy she came. Brenda tosses her bouquet and Kristina catches it, but Sonny tells her she can't get married for a few decades. Ethan sits with Kristina and notes how far she's come in regards to her father. She credits therapy and Ethan for helping her. He thinks she's a special young lady and asks her to dance. As they do, Kristina declares she will marry him someday. Ethan just laughs. Dante returns to the reception and congratulates the happy couple. Brenda and Sonny make their exit, as their guests throw flower pedals and wish them well. Sonny puts Brenda in the limo, which then explodes.


    Jax brings Alexis to the Metro Court bar. They come up with several things to drink to, which mostly involve their failed relationships. Alexis adds they should also drink to facing the future with open hearts and they clink glasses.


    Michael walks Abby home. She tells him his toast was perfect. He says he was nervous, but once he caught her eye, he felt okay. They tell each other how much they mean to each other and Michael wonders where they go from here. They move in close and kiss.



    The Balkan taunts Sam from the backseat of her car. He says her resemblance to Brenda will cost Sam her life.



    After Jason escapes the gunfire at the Pine Barrens, he calls Spinelli to meet him at the penthouse. Once there, they get to work on tracking the Balkan.



    As she drives, Carly happens upon Shawn, who is lying outside on the ground. She gets out of her car and he pulls his gun on her. He orders her to help him. She says she will get him to safety and helps him into her car.



    Carly brings Shawn to her house and helps him to the couch. She gets out her first aid kit and tries to patch him up, but thinks he needs a doctor. He says no. As she tends to him, she secretly pulls out her phone and calls Jason, who hears Shawn and Carly talking about being at her house. Jason later busts in with his gun drawn, but Carly tells Jason not to shoot Shawn.


    Tomorrow's Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Michael is there for his father.

    Franco calls Jason.

    Sonny realizes the body is not who they think.

    Dante, give Lulu five minutes and she will be back in your face, wanting you back. Looking for every excuse to show up at your door, just like the last time. I was glad to hear her say she expected him to be perfect. Lulu, I've been telling you for days, nobody's perfect. Including you.

    I was wondering where Carly was. I thought she was hiding under the tables. I would have thought she would have stayed to make sure Abby didn't catch the bouquet. But she left and found Shawn, shot on the side of the road. If the Balkan people shot Shawn, why did they not take him to Baldie?

    For Brenda and Dante to have never slept together, he sure thought about her a lot. Even when he was in bed with Lulu.

    I was so happy for Sonny and Brenda, I had almost forgotten about the explosion coming up. I'm sure Brenda was not in the car. I wonder if the Balkan replaced Brenda with Sam since he mentioned how much they looked alike.

    I can see it now. Sam all bandaged up in the hospital, from head to toe. Unable to speak to let them know she's not Brenda.

    Well, I see fromt he promos to come, Sonny realizes the body is not who they think? Is he referring to the body in the car?

    Did I miss something? Did anyone tell Sonny that Brenda had a miscarriage? I know Dante told Lulu, but no one really asked about the child, and where it is.
    (not that I saw, anyhow)

    "Nikolas relayed to Laura that Brook works for him and he holds her in high regard." Nikolas made her sound like a working girl--like Abby.

    Why would Carly take Shawn to HER house? Shouldn't she know of one of Jason's safe houses? You don't take some criminal to your home, I mean Josslyn is probably upstairs taking her nap.

    You can tell the Corinthos kids love their dad because it has extended to Brenda. Nice.

    Kristina, I do think you and Ethan have great chemistry. But perhaps you should look to Laura's relationship with Luke as an indication of what a future with Ethan would be like. I mean Ethan is as flighty as his old man. So take a good long look before you make that move. You too, might be in France trying to get your mind right after loving Ethan.

    Lulu is an unforgiving witch. Dante is a liar, but this one had nothing to do with her and wasn't his business to tell.
    But then again, Dante did tell her that Michael was raped and that wasn't Lulu's business either. so I can see why she would think he told her everything.

    Brenda--once married to Jason, now married to Sonny.
    She now joins Sam & Carly--although her "relationship with Jason" was anything but romantic

    Leo123. I was wondering the same thing. They didn't go into detail about it.

    I loved today's show. It was so good. I loved that Kristina caught the buquet. Sonny was so cute when that happened. I loved the toast that the kids made to Sonny and Brenda. I loved the toast that Sonny made to Brenda and the kids. Sonny was so nice to invite Abby for Micheal. I liked how Sonny hugged Abby before Micheal left with her. Sonny was so good with Abby. I love that Sonny and Brenda are Mr. and Mrs. Corinthos. I just wish they could live happily ever after. I just wish that Sonny and Kristina had shared a dance. That would have been the icing on the cake. Let me know what you think out there. More tomorrow. Bye!

    FUBU: Thought of you when Carley was patching up Shawn. DID YOU SEE THOSE ARMS? Good heaven, that man is BUFF.
    Was also worried Carley would get blood on her white wool coat.

    For Nic to say that to Brook was not a compliment to me. Really kind of cold. He is almost leading her on, that it is turning into something more yet, tells his mother she is an employee in high regard.

    When Kristina said to Ethan, i'm going to marry you one day, it reminded me of my brother-in-law. He told my sister, when she was 16 ,he was going to marry her one day and they have been married 43 years now. She married him at 18!
    Thought Brenda looked great in her "leaving cloths".

    I LOVE skinny, but like 4myjylli and a few others, Olivia looked CRAZY skinny.

    I am sure that Brenda Corinthos is still alive She wasn't really in the car when it blew. I think the Balkan people have her now as part of the balkan people's to it make look like she is dead so they can snicth her instead of James Franco doing it instead.

    Question: This has been bugging me for weeks. Why is Carly's hair at the nape black. Did they only highlight the top? It is such a contrast that catches my eye, especially last week when she wore a ponytail.

    I think Sonny & everyone else is assuming that the baby didn't make it or Brenda would have a toddler in tow. JMO

    Hey posters. Ransomha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed those arms on Shawn. "Great Day in the morning" as my Granny would say.

    Carly: Say what you want about her, and I agree with it all, good/bad, but that chick's a tough cookie. Way tougher and smarter than Sam. Now, Carly should be in the PI business. So cool how she pulled that phone out of her purse.

    D/L: I watched the scenes with Dante and Lulu, but all I could focus on was that hairstyle, especially when they showed it from the back. I was waiting for a bird to land in it.

    Brenda/Sonny: Why would you need to sign off paternity on a miscarriage? Anyone know or can we just chalk that up to the Land of Soaps? Why didn't she apologize to Dante for her part in Lulu's walking out of the ceremony? Everyone runs to her rescue, Dante, Sonny, Jax, Jason, and it makes her look pretty needy. Why bring VM back all wimpy? I forgot who posted it, but I did notice she had a hard time walking in that dress.

    After the children's toast, Sonny called Molly his niece. It jolted my memory. Isn't Spencer his nephew, Courtney's baby? You never see Nik or Sonny mention him to each other at all.

    Robin/Patrick: When they're on, that means it's time for me to ff, restroom break or get a drink.
    Either keep him or let him go, but this dragging on is making me long to paint something so I can watch it dry. BTW, why is Maxie putting all the pieces together and not Robin or Patrick? She's much more entertaining to watch. Robin should be more clever in seeing the constant Terrell/Lisa setups because BOTH of her parents are agents and her uncle is the police commissioner.

    Can't wait to read your posts!
