    Hello all:

    Lucky and Luke scenes today were phenomenal, and yes Mamajj, some of the best acting I have seen in a long time. I do agree with Ttoyou on disagreeing that making Luke the driver is character assassination. If you look at the things that Luke has done over the years, I don’t see how this act would be the one that decintegrates the character. Will it be difficult for Luke to deal with and come back from? Definitely yes, but I think that tptb knew what they were dong when the approached AG about being the driver and he consented. A part from the twist in the Jake s/l giving the Spencer klan the opportunity to exhibit their acting skills, I think this is a great opportunity for us as viewers to see how a family deal with a situation like this. How does a family handle a member taking the life of another member, and a child no less?

    For those criticizing Jason’s reaction to the news that Luke is the driver, to you I say, have you forgotten Lucky’s reaction when he thought it was Carly? When Lucky thought it was Carly, he accused her of everything under the sun; he was ready to rip her apart with his bare hands. There wasn’t any understanding or allowances made for the fact that Joss was in the hospital and that Carly may have not noticed that she hit Jake. No, Lucky in all his anger and hate accused Carly of hitting Jake and deliberately leaving him on the side of the road because she was too selfish and hard-hearted to give a damn. Compare his reaction when he found out that it wasn’t Carly but Luke who was behind that wheel. Where is the accusation, where is the rage, and where is the condemnation? That all disappeared when he found out that the accused was the father he loved more than anyone. Like Lucky, Jason is willing to make allowances for love ones but are not willing to spare non-love ones or non-family. Why was it okay for Lucky to hate on Carly and make excuses for Luke but when Jason does something similar, he is severely criticized?

    Ag has proven again why he is a living legand. Unbelievable acting- unfortunatly the stiryline is tragic- but the acting by all involved has been Emmy worthy. On another note- the sexual chemistry between carly and shawn was so hot- I cannot wait to see some daytime loving between these two!!!

    I can’t believe it! They just HAD to do it.

    They had to make the best day in Michael’s life the worst day in Luke’s. With all the emotional back and forth, up and down, hot and cold, happy and sad today, it was like riding a roller coaster. This must be what it feels like to be manic-depressive.

    Hey, I’m happy for Michael and Abby, but he was right. It IS inappropriate for him to be this happy… okay, not really, but at least WE shouldn’t have seen it today of all days. Why couldn’t today have been a break from all the pain and anguish by focusing on Sonny and Brenda on their honeymoon, and Michael and Abby’s first time? A day of romance and love without all the suffering would’ve been welcome right about now. As it is, with all the other stuff going on today, it was impossible to enjoy Mabby as much as I normally would have. They were sweet, sexy, funny, and charming, and I couldn’t get into it at all because I knew coming up in the next scene we were going to see Luke, Lucky, Liz, or Jason in unspeakable AGONY!

    I’ve got to ask, is anybody enjoying this? Did anybody watch this show today and say “Boy, I’m glad I watched THAT”?

    I hope there are some extra bullets in Luke’s gun. I might need them to put an end to my own misery if this keeps up.

    And the fact that Ethan is unaccounted for in all this is almost as ridiculous as the idea that Laura wouldn’t be on the first flight from Paris as soon as she heard the news about Jake, much less Luke’s role in the tragedy. I can almost understand the absence of Bobbie, Monica, and Audrey because, let’s face it, as actresses they pretty much suck and their performances would most likely pale in comparison to the powerhouse acting being turned in recently by this stellar cast, but how they could write this without including, or even mentioning Laura is almost criminal negligence in my mind, and certainly as unbelievable as anything that has happened in this preposterous storyline.

    When you think about everything that’s happened ever since Josslyn got a fever and Jake wandered out that door, it’s been one improbable coincidence after another. Yes, I know it’s just a TV show, but c’mon, it’s not a cartoon! The laws of the universe still apply. The odds against Luke, a high functioning alcoholic, unknowingly running down a child in the street, who happened to be his adopted grandson and who also happened to be a perfect match for an unrelated child who only discovered to be in need of a kidney transplant THAT SAME NIGHT are beyond astronomical. Add to that the idea that the little girl is also the daughter of the driver’s niece and the odds become so incalculable as to be virtually impossible.

    And for Lucky to question Luke’s ability to drive on that night, he needs only to remember that while Luke seemed out of breath when he got to the Justice of the Peace’s office, he was certainly not drunk, and if I’m not mistaken and as other posters have pointed out, I believe it was Luke who drove Lucky and Shaboom to the hospital from there.

    Somebody posted that perhaps they’re trying to usher in a new “gritty realism” into soaps, but I don’t see anything about this as being at all realistic.

    That being said, I disagree with the optimists who are holding out hope that Jake is somehow still alive. Like any mother, Liz would surely know her own child no matter how badly he was injured. Besides, that was SOME little boy’s kidney that went into Josslyn, and nobody else seems to be missing a kid, except maybe Brenda's son, and I don't think it was him.

    And those of you expecting to actually SEE Jake’s funeral – don’t count on it. From a production standpoint it’s too expensive. They see that as paying an extra to play the part of a minister (who probably didn’t even know Jake) to do all the dialog while all the regular cast sits around doing nothing but looking sad and grieving. They couldn’t even get up and speak like at Georgie’s funeral because, like the minister and rest of us, hardly anybody even KNEW Jake, and his parents are certainly not going to get up in front of everybody. I’m just speculating, but my guess is that the funeral will happen off screen.

    Scrimmage, I haven't seen today's episode yet but I'm sure I'll be glad I watched it.

    Last week's episodes were great and very emotional, however I didn't cry.

    Why would Tracy be out shopping while all this is going on?

    Scrimmage, good to see you posting again.

    Mabby's making love for the first time and with all the doom and gloom going on was no different than Lante getting it one the day Michael was sent to prison. For me Mabby was a welcome relief from the doom and gloom.

    I agree with those that thinks Jake is dead and not coming back. Please let him RIP.

    Why couldn't Lucky be the one to tell Liz that it was Luke that hit Jake? And since Lucky was busy telling Luke he was the one, why couldn't it be Mac that told her and not the Defective One. And why didn't Lucky go to see Liz after leaving Luke instead of going to the PCPD? So many questions that I'm afraid I will never get the answer to from TIIC.

    Aussie-gal – It’s one thing to appreciate the fine performances by these remarkable actors and actresses on the show, but lately when I watch, I don’t like the way I’ve been feeling afterwards. Usually the show puts me in a good mood because I’m amused by Carly’s over the top antics or eagerly anticipating Theo’s next dastardly deed, but here recently it’s been very hard watching almost everybody on the show in gut-wrenching pain, especially when you realize that there’s only more of the same coming tomorrow and again the day after that with no end or silver lining in sight.

    Where's the fun in that?

    Hi everyone.

    I must agree with Scrimage. These last couple of weeks of GH have me feeling sad. I find just the thought of a grandparent be responsible for the death of their grandchild depressing. I do agree the acting has been awesome, but I'm ready for happier times.

    Was happy for Abby and Michael....that poor guy deserves it.

    Some powerful scenes today.

    Luke/Lucky-Luke just doesn't seem to get how his drinking affects those around him. He just downs a couple more to prove to Lucky that his drinking did not affect him. I liked Lucky's parting remark that he knows his dad loved him like he loved Jake.

    Abby/Michael-Touching, intimate scenes. I thought the song was nice as well.

    Jason/Luke-It's pretty bad when the local hit man concludes you have been drinking. I think Jason will let Luke live with his guilt.

    Carly/Sam-I could do without Carly and Sam tells Carly she needs to tell Jason about Franco. Can't anyone give Jason a break?

    I was glad I watched gh today and said so to my sister who won't get to see it till later. Tragedy finely acted interspersed with happiness that as Abby said would let itself be and deal with what comes later later "holds the mirror up to life."(Shakespeare)
