    Saving Lives Trumps Happy Hour.

    Thursday, December 08 2011
    Johnny has fun needling Olivia and Steve, Sam and Michael find a DVD, and Spinelli gives Lulu good advice.

    As things get more heated between Sonny and Kate in the hotel, she puts on the brakes. She thinks he's just trying to lose himself in another woman, as he buries his pain over his past. She wants him to face his demons and offers to go with him. He says he will do it on his own, but right now he just wants to be with her. He tries to charm her, but Kate whispers, "It's not going to happen tonight." Sonny tells her sex wasn't on his mind, but he does want to go ice skating.

    Maggie asks Steve about Lisa at the hospital, as he's about to head out to meet Olivia. Maggie wonders if Robin killed her. Steve adamantly declares Robin did not. Maggie wonders who did. As they talk, Memphis is brought up and Maggie assures him his secret is safe with her.

    Olivia walks into Jake's and Johnny offers to buy her a drink. She tells him she's meeting someone, but accepts a beer. Johnny and Coleman tell her Dante was on a date with Delores. Olivia knows her son would never cheat on Lulu. The men counter guys don't always make the best choices when a pretty lady is around. As Olivia takes her beer to a table, Johnny points out her date might be an example of that considering he's late. Olivia reminds him Steve is a doctor and saving lives takes precedence over happy hour. Steve walks in and notices Maggie has followed him. She tells him she's just trying to be social and make new friends. Steve sits with Olivia and assures her he didn't invite Maggie along. He takes note of her Johnny being there as well. She informs him she turned him down when he wanted to keep her company. Meanwhile, Johnny talks with Maggie at the bar and learns she knows Steve from Memphis. He delights in throwing that information in a stressed out Steve's face.

    At the station, Floyd tells Dante and Delores that Jason viciously attacked him. Dante counters Jason was just trying to stop him from creating a huge panic in town over Franco. Floyd orders him to keep Jason in lock up or else he will have his badge. Once he's gone, Delores suggests she and Dante divvy up their cases and reaches for the evidence room key, but he stops her. She accuses him of not trusting her because she's a woman, just like every other cop she's worked with. She thinks that sexism is spilling over to the stripper case and lays out a pattern of abuse that they shouldn’t ignore. Dante says they can go over the stripper case when he gets back from questioning Jason. Once he's gone, Delores grabs the evidence room key out of his desk.

    Sam and Michael go to the spot on the street where Franco first saw Jason to look for clues. Michael finds a white circle spray painted on a garbage can. They look in the can and find a DVD with Franco's graffiti tag on it. Michael wants to tell Jason about it, but Sam says no because it will only drive Jason crazy. Michael wonders what she thinks is on the DVD.

    Maxie calls Anthony to Crimson so she can collect on the favor he owes her after she pulled him out of the water. In a roundabout way she asks him how she would go about covering up something illicit. He tells her that's his specialty and assumes she's referring to Lisa's murder. She thinks he had the motive for killing Lisa since he was angry that she attacked him. Anthony becomes threatening, but assures her he likes her. He asks who he would be covering for: Matt or her. Maxie wants him to make it look like someone else offed Lisa, so all three of them will be off the hook. He'll consider it.

    Spinelli finds Lulu at Kelly's. She tells him about breaking off her engagement to Dante. He recalls how fearless she used to be when he first met her. She wonders what happened to her and when she started playing it safe. Spinelli suggests instead of dumping Dante, she should remember why she fell in love with him in the first place.

    Tomorrow's Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    All the murder suspects are rounded up.

    Jason goes off.

    Sam begs Michael to keep the DVD a secret from Jason.

    I wonder what is up with Delores. Maybe she is wowrking for AZ or one of the other mob families. She is pushibng too hard for Dante's cases. Maybe just ambitious.

    I wonder what Steve did in Memphis that Maggie is keeping quit about?

    Watching today reminds how GH is just famous for taking beloved characters and ruining them.
    Dante and Lulu were nice about 3 months ago. Now I can't stand them, together or individually.

    Olivia and Steve too. I wish she was back with Johnny.

    the only person I still really enjoy is Anthony. He is consistently humorous and crazy. Love the actor

    Delores is going to be Johnny's side piece.

    You know how we always have to have a triangle, are they heading to Dante, Lulu and Delores? I myself can't stand Lulu
    with Dante, not that I am a Dante fan either but put him with Delores like to see how this plays out. I am watching the classic episodes on late at night the old Lucky is very Hot & Lulu is still a pain in the **tt. Sonny is Hot to me but back in the classic he is Very Hot.

    Cherryberry, I watched some old episodes also I believe Thanksgiving weekend on Soapnet. It just made me wish for the old days with Felicia, Lucy, Kevin, Tony, etc.

    The women back in those days had their issues but they didn't have to have a room reserved at Shadybrooke every couple of months to work them out.

    I've read all the posts about Sonny and Kate being boring. AGREED! And it is unfathomable that Kate would go back to Sonny after the two bullet holes!

    They obviously have no intention of sending Michael to a Wizard for a brain. And Sam is destined for unhappiness? I hope Kirsten Storms comes back. I could care less about Maggie or Steve. And yes, I do prefer Olivia with Johnny. But I prefer me with Johnny too.

    Oh well.....

    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to check in. Scrimmage, your Liz scene was one of the best you've done. I think she brings out something in you.LOL
    I haven't watched today because of the VA Tech shooting. I'd heard about it work and was hoping that since there were no leads at the time that the local news wouldn't take up the whole hour showing the location on a Google Earth map, but no such luck I found out after ffing through the hour.

    From reading the recap, I just realized that Maxi and Olivia are playing the same game with themselves - the men in their lives are the ones they think they should be with, not the ones they truly want to be with. Unfortunately the two men who are supposedly the "good" ones are both obnoxious.

    I'll try to get back after watching on SoapNet. In the meantime, I'll have to catch up with today's events reading your comments.

    Married less then a month and already keeping secrets from their spouse. NOT GOOD.

    Sonny and Kate have got to stop. This is ridiculous.
    I don't blame Sonny though for Kate being shot.
    How is it Sonny's fault that a very young Michael had a gun and it went off by accident? That was wrong place at the wrong time, TO ME.
    And Anthony shot Kate. Sonny can't control Anthony.
    That's like the chance any woman takes being involved with Jason, Sonny, Johnny, Dante, Lucky or anyone else on either side of the law.

    Sonny does have some awesome dimples and I still love him.

    Feel bad for Dante and Lulu fans. They must be feeling the hurt of their couple. I do think they will find their way back to each other.

    ttoyou: I saw today a glimpse of why you love Spin. He was a good friend and a good listener .

    akitas: Was it you looking for a latino character? Well, you finally got one! Diversity is needed on this show. Just hope they don't make her out to be bad guy.

    hi late Lulu, Dante doesn't want to play your game anymore. Time to move on.
    I don't care what Maggie and Steve the past and it is so much like Liza's storyline...boring now.
    I do enjoy watch Az always makes me smile.

    Kate's a tease just like she probably was in high school. She's the one that could use some therapy.

    Ex-Mayor Floyd is right. The cops' families are the problem.

    This Franco crap isn't a mystery, it's a scavenger hunt. What REAL criminal leaves clues all over town? The Joker? Oh wait, HE'S not real either!
