    Abuse Of Power.

    Wednesday, August 17 2011
    Dante confronts Sonny, Carly overhears bad news, and Skye questions Tracy.

    Dante visits Sonny in his jail cell. Sonny warns Dante Diane will sue him for abuse of power if he does not get him out of there. Dante counters that Sonny's whole life is an abuse of power. Dante adds he's not going anywhere so he needs to know what Sonny did to Jax's plane. Sonny says it's over because Jax left. Dante informs him that Jax's plane took a nosedive into the harbor. Dante accuses Sonny of tampering with the plane, but Sonny denies any wrong doing. Dante points out he's detached from reality right now because he's off his meds. Dante tells Sonny to pray Jax is found or else he could be charged with murder. After Dante has left, Jax visits Sonny. He says he knows what goes on in his head, because he is in his head. He taunts Sonny about his plan to deal with him. Jax tells him that Brenda was on the plane with him when it went down. He says Brenda died hating him. Jax tells Sonny Brenda is dead and now it's his turn. Sonny jolts awake from his dream.

    Carly walks out to her living room and finds Shawn sleeping on her couch. He offers to watch Josslyn while she visits Jason. After she's gone, Dante stops by. He tells Shawn Jax's plane went down and Sonny is responsible. Shawn admits he saw Sonny on Jax's plane.

    When Sam wants answers about Jason in his hospital room, Matt attacks Patrick for his actions. Sam kicks them out until they have facts to report to her. They head into the hallway and argue until Steve breaks it up. Carly shows up, but Sam tells her Jason is having tests done so she doesn’t need to be there. Sam orders her to go home. Carly reluctantly leaves the room. Alone, Sam cries and curls up on Jason's bed.

    Steve calls Robin to meet him, Matt and Patrick in the morgue. Steve tells Robin how the brothers were arguing in front of Sam. Robin says she'll take it from there and Steve exits. Robin tells the brothers they need to focus on a treatment plan for Jason. Matt leaves to run labs on Jason, as Patrick admits using Robin to okay Jason's biopsy. Back upstairs at the hub, Patrick worries Jason's seizures were a result of the biopsy. Carly approaches to thank Robin for talking Jax into bringing Josslyn home. Robin says she didn't do it for her. Robin blames Carly for unleashing Sonny's craziness. Patrick tells her about Sonny coming to their home and shooting at Jax. Carly says Jason is the only one who can handle Sonny when he's like this. Shawn calls to tell Carly to go to the police station for news on Jax.

    Carly shows up at the station, as Dante uncuffs Sonny after getting released on bail. She hears Dante accuse Sonny of killing Jax. She storms over to Sonny and slaps him.

    Lucky sits by Siobhan's bedside at the hospital. Lulu walks in and questions her brother about not being there for Siobhan's surgery. She thinks he should be more concerned about his wife than his undercover drug case. She suggests he take a leave of absence to clear his head. Lucky thinks she's just worried he will get high. Lucky tells his sister he can't be her project now that Luke is gone. Lulu leaves and Steve enters the room. He shares his concern that Liz was responsible for Siobhan's fall. Lucky knows it was an accident. After Steve leaves, Lucky talks to his comatose wife. He doesn't know why he keeps shutting her out and running away when he's the one who asked her to stay. However, he has to stop JT and whoever is running the drugs. He kisses her hand and exits, as Siobhan wakes up.

    Skye waits with Edward at the hospital for word on Jason. Tracy walks up and bickers with Skye. Edward has chest pains and Tracy takes him to see Monica. Skye calls Anthony and tells him they need to meet – now.

    Skye meets with Anthony at a restaurant. She wants her money, but he wants her to finish the job first. She vows he will get all he needs to stick it to Tracy. However, she makes it clear that Edward stays out of it or else she walks.

    Skye waits for Tracy at ELQ. Skye wants to know about Gino Soleito.

    My Sonny might hate being in enclosed spaces but he can still lie under pressure. He was lying big time to Dante. And for a minute, I thought Jax was actually there, until he got to talking crazy.

    That was very unprofessional of Matt to say that it was Patrick's fault that Jason had a seizure in front of Sam.

    Tracy got the best line of the day, when she told Skye to get on the next tramp train.

    What's this I hear? Carly is thanking Robin. Earth to Carly. Hell must be freezing over. I know Claudia will be happy for that.

    Carly slapped the hair dye out of Sonny today. He's gonna have to buy another bottle of fat hair girl, jet black.

    I wonder if Jax and Jerry will meet up in the ocean, since they are both swimming in the sea.

    I give Carly two weeks to be mad at Sonny. Then she'll say, Oh, you were off your meds? My bad. I'll lie in court for you. YOU shouldn't be locked up for killing a man because Gee willickers, you're claustrophobic and all and what would the kids do without you? You're such a phenomenal Dad. You know the son you shot in the chest, the daughter who has such serious Daddy issues that she let a man beat the snot out of her, the son you let get shot in the head when he came to work with you for a day, and the boy who had just slipped out my vajayjay when you shot me in the head.

    I do wish Carly had slapped Robin though. Geesh, she was thanking you Robin. You couldn't let the words 'you're welcome' tumble out of your mouth. Was it too much to ask?

    Lucky, between Lulu's continuous picking and Siobhan's constant caterwauling, you're going to get no freaking peace unless you're high. I guess you're thanking the powers that be for that coman Siobhan's in. At least you don't have to listen to both of them at once.

    lets just say that sam were carly, and carly were sam. if carly was with jason and sam and him were the best of friends carly would lose her crap. its a fact. hell, if jax were in an accident like jason and brenda came to visit, carly would of lost her crap. carly needs to think about how SHE would feel. look, i get that him and carly are good friends BUT they're has to be a line. im ready to see independent carly, kuz obsessive carly is annoying.

    carly actually said thank u to robin today. it was sincere, robin should of said your welcome instead of being a biatch!

    i hope they all find out jax is actually alive, kuz it was jax's fault for flying in the first place the dumb idiot!

    i dont blame matt for being annoyed, but he shouldn't of said that in front of sam. very unproffessional!

    ugh skye... can't stand her. never could.

    Ok, so I have to say Robin is a sanctimonious twit. Carly was genuinely thanking her and Robin pulled an attitude. Next time I think the writers just need to have Carly give Robin far as I am concerned Robin's character has been ruined for years and it just keeps getting worse.

    I have to agree with some other posters about Carly and Sonny but then again, she does love Jax so who knows. I would like to see Sonny get his comeuppance at this point and the new writer is supposed to start phasing out the mob stuff so woohoo to that. Not a bad episode at all. Anyone else just want to smack Robin today?

    Posted by cbru at Wednesday, August 17 2011 02:08 PM

    I will get in line for smacking Robin. She is such a twit. She hates Carly so much that she can't even accept a thank you from her for Joss. Maybe someone should remind Miss High and Mighty that Carly brought whiny Brenda's son back to her. Remember Robin-your BFF!

    Poor Sonny-the lies just roll off his tongue. I am thinking that Diane will throw out every reason he has ever used to get him off. May not do much good though. I don't think Sonny can bribe Judge Carroll and I would love to see him presiding. But, abuse of power???? You hit a cop, Sonny. Maybe he can get off because of Dante's stupidity on the plane.

    And, gee, do you think Dudley Do Right will take into consideration that Jax left after he was NOT given clearance by the tower???? Nah, me neither.

    Obviously, Lulu has appointed herself as the family's keeper. Lucky should have thrown her nosy butt out of that room when she walked in the door. She has no clue what is going on. Wait until she finds out that Liz is involved in this caper. Lulu will be going off on another rant on her.

    I'm sorry, Lucky. You know it was an accident because Liz said so??? Even her own brother doesn't seem to believe her.

    Patrick and Matt need to take their very unprofessional rants outside. No wonder Sam is in the state she is in.

    Why is Carly letting Jax skate??? He was kidnapping Joss. If he would have gotten away with it, when exactly does Carly think she would see her again??

    Skye is not doing anything for me. I like Tracy.

    Don't fight it, Carly. Shawn is definitely interested!!

    cbru...I think it's just in Carly's nature to defend her men. I mean, look at how many times she's defended Sonny. She can't help herself. They can kidnap and shoot her and ANY of her children, and it's nothin' but a G-thang baby! But any WOMAN who does her wrong, then it's on and poppin'. FOREVER! Even if they're family. Remember when she was going to teach Lulu a lesson about going against family.

    But I do give her free reign to kick the Robin's nose back down toward Earth.

    ROFLMBAO!!!! That was just funny.

    Posted by cbru at Wednesday, August 17 2011 02:31 PM

    Unicorn Girl-you are right about Carly. As far as Sonny goes, I don't think that will last too long, especially since Jason will be busy with Sam. After all, there are the kids they have. She always seem to give the guys a pass, even when they are complete jerks. Carly seems to have matured lately, but someone needs to give Robin a swift kick.

    Between the fuzz on his head and the fuzz elsewhere, Jax looks like crapiola.

    Did anyone else see "Diane's" new commercial for Swiffer WetJet??? She is this over the top drama queen, complete with hand to the forehead. I was ROTFLOL!!!!

    I am not always a fan of Carly but today, GO CARLY, I really hope the new writers can but a good spin on this whole thing, I got to watch yesterdays show and I was laughing my butt off the whole bar thing, Diane walking around with almost nothing on.

    Really enjoyed Siobhan today. That's how I like to see her!

    Matt, should have been suspended for that outburst. Grow up.

    Sam should have just given Carley an update and not act like she owns Jason. Carley was Jason's first concern when he woke up. Sam needs to know she may be number one in Jason's life, but 2, 3, 4, 5 ...are still part of his life too.
    I did like how she curled up on his bed at the end. I always sleep on my husband's side when he is out of town.

    Carley should learn the facts before she starts swinging. Poor Sonny. He was taken off guard and had a bad night. He needs a nice tub, some good food and a chance to regroup. He hit his son, not a cop.

    Smart of Shawn to pass the blame to Sonny about the plane. Who's to say he didn't pull the wires to keep Jax grounded.
    He is really feeling Carley. Surprised she not jumping on that.
