    This Is How Patrick And Lisa Started.

    Thursday, January 12 2012
    Maggie and Steve rehash the past, Jason faces Franco, and Ethan questions Cassandra.

    After seeing Steve and Maggie kissing at the hospital, Olivia starts counting and slowly walks away. Meanwhile, Steve backs away from Maggie. He tells her he didn't bring her there for that. He's with Olivia. She wonders how serious it can be when he can't even call her his girlfriend. They start talking about their past and Maggie says she couldn't face what they did, but now she understands that under certain circumstances, people do extreme things. Steve says he can always have her transferred. She begs him not to since she's finally given in to how she felt in Memphis. Steve thinks this is how things started with Patrick and Lisa. She points out she's not crazy though. Maggie doesn’t think Olivia can give him the one thing he's looking for – redemption. Steve reminds Maggie he took a life and she couldn't handle it. He thinks she's free, but she corrects him saying she is chained to that night and to him.

    Dante and Delores decide there isn't enough to hold their suspect and let him go, much to Ronnie's ire. Michael walks in and learns the man walked. Ronnie and Michael gang up on Delores and Dante, who defend their decision. Michael walks off and Delores passionately lays out her ideas on the case to Dante. He notes her enthusiasm and asks if something like this happened to her sister. Delores evades the line of questioning by bringing up Dante's mob boss father.

    In his office, Sonny calls Jason and urges him to let Franco go or it will eat him alive. Still counting, Olivia shows up after Sonny hangs up with Jason. She reminds him he called her about a recipe. She realizes he's thinking of opening the restaurant to the public. She learns the name of the establishment will share that of a place he used to hang out with Connie. They talk about the past, as Johnny walks in on Sonny's request. After Olivia leaves, Sonny orders Johnny to stay away from Michael. Johnny urges Sonny to think about what Michael is going through. Michael shows up and Johnny says he, unlike Sonny, believes he's capable of making his own decisions. After Johnny leaves, Michael vents about the cops letting the suspect off. He emotionally implores his father to, "Bury the son of a bitch."

    Olivia enters the hospital room Steve and Maggie are in and kisses Steve. After Steve gets paged away, Olivia calls Maggie out for kissing her boyfriend. Olivia orders her to back off.

    Jason tells Sam at the penthouse that he can't let go of Franco because he blames himself for what happened to her. Sam gets a calls from Alexis, who asks her daughter to meet her and Molly at Kelly's. After Sam leaves, Spinelli shows up and reluctantly tells Jason Franco is at the gallery.

    Jason shows up at Franco's studio with a gun. He asks why Franco let him find him. Franco wonders what he would do for the answer.

    Sam shows up at Kelly's as Molly expresses her annoyance over Alexis' overbearing nature. Alexis apologizes for her overreaction to Molly explaining she's just frustrated and hot. Sam intervenes and defends their mother to Molly, who ultimately relents. Molly looks through the Cassadine book and notes how dark and depressed their family looks. She worries they might have been crazy. Sam doesn’t think she has anything to worry about, but Molly worries about when she has her own kids. After more talk of the Cassadines, Alexis notices something is wrong with Sam. She suggests she go home and talk to Jason.

    Helena listens in at Wyndemere as Cassandra recalls to Ethan all the mysterious mansions she's recently inhabited. He wonders how she finds all these kinds of places. She thinks they find her. She tells Ethan she trusts him because he makes her feel safe. She goes on to talk about the all the ghosts trapped there. She can hear their voices late at night. She insists she doesn't care about her past, but asks him what it's like knowing who he is. Ethan explains he only found out just a few years ago and it gave him a name, a past and people he's connected to. He thinks she has so many secrets locked inside her. She wonders what if she is the secret and someone else has the key. She suggests he keep his distance because she doesn’t stay anywhere for long. She asks what he would do if finding out who he was turned out to be the worst thing for him and everyone around him. He embraces her.

    Tomorrow's Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Sam shares her results with Jason.

    Robin calls Patrick.

    Ewen warns Cassandra.

    Molly asked Alexis if she was ever her age. Molly, were you ever your age?

    Jason, put your toy gun down. You know you're not about to shoot Franco. Have you ever shot anybody?

    Why is Olivia all up in Maggie's face? You need to talk to your so-called boyfriend, with your insecure old arse. I hope Maggie ties your bony arms into a knot and then take your man. You are all lip and nothing else.

    And please send Michael on a two week vacation somewhere. I almost wish a crane will fall on his head. I'm getting sick of that little boy.

    Did I miss the secret between Steve and Maggie? I'll watch tonight after watching the Braxton show while sipping a Margarita.

    How does Michael get to question the cops and wait for it, Ronnie totally on Michael side.

    Is the end in sight? Franco's storyline is so boring and drawn out.

    CBF@ Molly asked Alexis if she was ever her age. Molly, were you ever your age?

    CBF, so very true and what age would Molly be. I think Alexis is going to be one of those women that loses it with menopause like my aunt did. She's just not having hot flashes, she's having major mood issues.

    Cowboys Fan, I agree Olivia should have stepped to Steve. Who is to say that he did not kiss her or encourage her kiss? I don’t know why people walk away from situations like that. I say there is no time like the present to put all of our cards on the table. Confront them in the act and get to the bottom of it. But warning some chick off your man sounds so high school to me. If he were truly your man he would not give you a reason to have to warn someone off of him. Just saying.

    I just caught the last 20 minutes or so- I was yelling shoot him Jason, Shoot him. I’m glad I’m off tomorrow to see Jason get rid of Franco once and for all. This has been the day many of us have been waiting for.

    I have found the show to be somewhat boring this week, it might just be me, though I have noticed not as many comments. Hope the pace picks up soon.

    I would also like to sign the petition to have Scrimmage become HW for our beloved show. He has the talent and the right stuff.

    I was out with poodles and the little poodles earlier today. We did some shopping and had lunch. When getting ready to leave the restaurant, getting our coats, etc. someone’s cell phone rang with Adele’s “Rolling in The Deep” ringtone. I witnessed the cutest thing I have ever seen. Those little poodles , stopped what they were doing and started doing this choreographed dance. Poodles tells me she taught them the dance months ago, anytime they hear the song at home she and the pups do this amazing dance. I wish I could have gotten it on video. Almost everyone in the place gave them a standing ovation and lots of applause.

    Happy posting-

    Are the writers listening or what? Steve brings up how Maggie is like the whole Lisa disaster, 3 of the Davis girls together? We had a dog last week. That is totally awesome, it probablable won't be until April 17th until I get to watch any of it.... I might watch Jason taking out Franco...

    Hi everyone,

    Mac really needs to stop doing paperwork and start monitoring his detectives more closely. Better yet, some re-training in procedures, ethics, and liability seems to be in order after both the Roach aka Stripper Tripper and Delores gave out the name of the suspect that Dante released right in front of Michael who had and was making threats. Apparently Dante is also unaware of repercussions of releasing information to someone who is more interested in vengeance than justice. He also seems to be unaware of repercussions of calling a woman emotional in the workplace. Are those Corinthos traits coming out, because he didn’t learn that from his mom? Also, what happened to Sam and Spin working on this case?

    I really don’t understand why Maggie, or Olivia for that matter, wants Steve, but there’s no reason we have to watch the same conversation between them over and over. I’m hoping that because “the death of Lisa Niles” keeps getting mentioned and each time the next face we see is Steve’s that he really did dispatch her. His exit frees up Olivia and Maggie to find better men. I could see Maggie with either Patrick or Johnny. Of course, I’m still on team Olivia & Sonny, especially since he clearly misses the way she cooks her pasta. As an aside, when she was still counting her way to Sonny’s desk, I thought sure she was going to spill the cannelloni beans about Steve and Maggie. I’m sure Johnny would tell her in a heartbeat.

    Molly, a freshman in high school combined with Alexis, who seems to be having a tough time with the big M – not a good combination and I’m speaking from experience as a freshman in high school. Also, Molly shouldn’t blame her mother for her lack of friends, even though Alexis is hovering right now. Not many 14-year-old girls carry around an ancient photo collection of spooky relatives; HOWEVER, she did drag the story of Olga and her kids out of Alexis. My theory: Valentin was thrown out of the Cassadine family for running off with the maid and his illegitimate children. From there I got nothing.

    Bring Hels out of the closet and let her start causing her own interesting form of mayhem in PC. I was actually thinking that one of her henchmen might have abducted Tracy yesterday. It wouldn’t be the first time.

    I will give the continuity top marks for interweaving the Jason Franco showdown scenes with the rest of the show considering they were shot when the rest of JF scenes were done. I even went back to check Jason’s haircut, and it’s pretty close. Anyway, I wonder if there is anyone out there watching who doesn’t want Jason to pull the trigger and put us all out of our misery. I hope he doesn’t bury the body too deep. I’m assuming he’ll need that DNA soon.

    You know, if Michael and Ronnie are on the same side, then you know they have the wrong answer.

    girlinthewind and Runnergirl great to hear from both of you.

    Dexdon - I loved your idea about the exit of Ronnie. Hope you don't mind I borrowed "Stripper Tripper".

    *********************SPOILER TALK***************************

    Redcanuck - Sorry I just read your earlier question. TR is Tristan Rogers and FH is Finola Hughes.
