    The Capacity To Kill Is In All Of Ya.

    Friday, December 09 2011
    The prime suspects are rounded up, Sam watches the DVD from Franco and Dante catches Olivia on the boat.

    Jason paces in a holding room at the station. Sam comes in and shares she went searching for Franco. He questions what she found and she admits to only finding the grafitti circle. He thinks she’s missed something. Sam tells him that Michael called her Mom and then leaves the room. Michael catches her on the way out of the station and wonders what she told him. She wants him to promise not to mention the DVD to Jason. Micheal enters the holding rooms and tells Jason why he went with Sam to Front Street. Jason demands to know what Michael saw. As they talk Garrett/Prescott interrupts and accuses them of hiding something. Jason gets pissed off and attacks him. Soon Alexis shows up in the holding room, threatens to go to Sam to calm him down, then leaves. Jason hates being cooped up but Michael thinks there’s more.

    At his desk, Dante studies Lulu’s engagement ring when Olivia finds him. She questions him about his date with Delores and wants to talk about Lulu. He defers the conversation and tells her she may be his mother but she’s still a suspect in the murder and needs to come with him.

    Delores finds Johnny and Anthony at the garage. She demands Anthony come with her. He questions if she has a warrant. They banter about it and Delores invites Johnny to come along.

    At Crimson, Spinelli finds Maxie and tells her he hasn’t found Matt. Ronnie shows up to talk about Lisa’s murder. He wants Maxie to come with him and she claims to not know anything. Spinelli raises an argument but Ronnie tells him he's coming too.

    Patrick and Robin chat in the hospital about Emma. Steve approaches Robin wondering about his shift then Matt shows up greeting Patrick. Mac comes over tells them all he knows they’re all free and he has enough room for all of them. He thinks they should be anxious to clear their names and tells them they’re not going to the station.

    The police take all the suspects to the boat. Spinelli, Maxie, Matt, Patrick, Robin, Steve, Olivia, Johnny, and Anthony all chat among themselves while wait for Mac to get the show on the road. Mac enters with First Officer Briggs. Dante announces everyone who was there that night, piloting a boat or just nearby is there. Mac declares someone on this boat killed Lisa. He pulls out the murder weapon. A wrench that was readily available to all of them. That leaves motive. Dante focuses on Robin claiming she was the last one to see Lisa alive. Robin flashes on the wrench and Patrick tells Dante he’s wrong, Robin is innocent. Spinelli ponders this in his head. Then the blame turns to Patrick. This prompts Spinelli to wonder to himself if he is guilty one. Mac then turns accusations to Anthony. That he had power of attorney over Lisa and their arrangement might have gone wrong. In his mind, Spinelli wonders about this revelation. Next up is Johnny. Dante reminds him of his relationship with Lisa and Spinelli continues theorizing to himself. Steve is next on the list, Delores wonders about the scratches found on his face as Spinelli thinks this one through. This brings them to Olivia, how she must have hated Lisa. Again Spinelli thinks about this. Matt’s next and then they throw accusations to Maxie. Spinelli jumps to her defense. The accusations continue to everyone in the room. They go back and forth and finally Anthony angrily declares, "The capacity to kill is in all of ya."

    Garret/Prescott runs into Alexis at the station. She thinks his name change is stupid wonders what name she should use when she sues him for liable and throws the paper with the headline about Jason’s arrest in his face.

    Johnny and Anthony chat about what happened on the boat while dining out. Anthony
    gloats about how long it took for him to get everyone to turn on each other.

    Back at the hospital, Robin and Patrick chat about Mac and how he has to remain impartial. They just want the whole thing to be over.

    Spinelli and Maxie are back at her office. She thanks him for his support and Spin leaves. Maxie leaves a message for Matt.

    First Officer Briggs is lurks in the shadows of the boat.

    After everyone is off the boat Olivia sneaks back in. Dante flicks on the lights and catches her.

    At home, a worried Sam watches the DVD and collapses in shock to the floor.

    Monday's Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Ethan becomes caretaker of Wyndemere.

    Dante is one step ahead of Olivia.

    Sam fights feelings of disgust and sheer anger.

    Did we accomplish anything today or learn anything we didn't already know?  What a stupid way to run a murder investigation. 

    Floyd should know better than to provoke a caged animal.  He's like those kids that tease the monkeys at the zoo, and when they get crap thrown on them they go crying to their mommies. 

    Okay, does Michael suspect the truth about Sam?  
    Since Sam is crying I guess she watched the video, and it's what she though it was, but it's also evidence and proof of a crime, not that the cops could do anything about it.

    The whole thing on the boat reminded me of the game Clue! It was really dumb. I really wish they would just move this whole thing along. I really don't know why Sam would keep finding the DVD a secret from Jason. Whatever she saw it wasn't good. I still dont think she was raped. That doesn't seem to be Franco's style. Hopefully we will find out before the year is over!!!

    I think Sam didn't watch the whole thing, or it just showed what Jason saw --or maybe Franco changed it, the scene or whatever, something Jason would notice but not Sam. Guess we'll find out eventually.

    I liked the whole bring all the suspects together and see what happens idea. AZ was magnificent, and I also enjoyed he and Johnny at dinner. It was almost a tender Father/Son moment.

    Michael knows Sam and Jason are hiding something, that they are acting different than in past Franco times. I don't think he knows what's wrong.

    And now its the next day, and again, Liz is mentioned, but no one seems concerned that she vanished from the hospital. Just seems a glaring error to me.

    Ha Ha Willowk I forgot she left the hospital too!!!!

    you know when I look at Robin you what I am thinking about it is so sad to see Robin to out go like this with her medical condition and Mac is not helping out with that either so next week I see she is going to have to denfinitely confide in her friend Jason next week about her condition.

    I did not miss everything today was boring can't not take Jason and Sam storyline not interest in this story!

    Finally a real Friday cliffhanger:
    Why was Olivia creeping around the party boat with a flashlight?
    Who was First Officer Briggs happy and relieved to see in the alley? By the way does anyone else think she looks a lot like Delores (sister, cousin maybe)?
    What the he// was on that DVD that Sam watched, and are those tears of relief or revulsion?
    Will Alexis sleep with “Prescott” again to get him to drop the charges dropped against Jason, even though he should never have been allowed access to him for so many reasons?
    Why does AZ always order the brisket?

    I can’t understand why Maxi has slipped back into her pre-Spinelli, hanging by the phone, allowing herself to at the mercy of Matt the Smart Mouth for attention? I guess the writers are now writing for the actress and not the character. Has Matt inhaled too many of the Liz pheromones, or have his lifelong insecurities as second best finally turned him into a Class A smart mouth DB? In any case, I’m hoping KS comes back soon, if only to kick him to the curb and at least thank Spinelli for his protection and devotion.

    On to Sherlock Holmes Smarter Brother’s Game of Clue:
    Who put the monkey wrench (sorry too easy) in Lisa’s plan for revenge?
    I did like Spinelli as the odds maker and vehicle that allowed us to see Lisa smacked like a piñata by every one of the “suspects” except Robin. I sort of have to agree (I think you all know how much this pains me to say it) that the Roach was right – mark this day on the calendar. The parlor scene was a big fat waste of time, unless Mac has finally channeled Robert and found his inner Scorpio OR is trying to make Robin or Maxi look guilty so that he can have an excuse to meet with Alexis again. Hey, those long winter nights are settling in…could you blame the guy?

    Speaking of the long winter nights, I wonder if Liz is hiding out at Wyndemere in her nightclothes too? Kate should schedule a lingerie shoot there soon.

    Hi all.

    I am w/scrimmage....did anything get advanced or accomplished today? NO!!

    I hope francnut gets wind of what Prescott, LOL, is doing to Jason & kills him. Francnut can't have his fun if Jason is behind bars.

    So are we going to see what is on the DVD or are we going to have to guess?

    What the h*ll kind of dog & pony show is Mac running? OMG Did he download the directions from the clue game & thought it would make a good plan of attack to solve his case? PLEASE!!!! Just do some real police work. OH No I forgot they can't since Jason is behind bars & could careless about Lisa. If those knuckleheads solve this case on their own it will be either a miracle or just dumb luck.

    PLEASE Let's move this cr@p along.

    Hello to all my poster friends.


    I read Robin goes to Jason & asked him to help her disappear.

    WOW for a Friday it sure is dead on here.

    Posted by lily hunter at Friday, December 09 2011 05:12 PM

    The update was really late today. I was so excited at the possibility of being the first poster one can only imagine my frustration caused by the delay. Instead of throwing barware I started working on our dreaded Christmas letter AND to my surprise, not only am I almost done, but the SO doesn't want to edit this year. God bless us everyone. Now, if Cutler happens to have a guardian angle out there somewhere, I'll be ringing bells throughout the Denver game.
