    You're Still A Zacchara.

    Monday, January 23 2012
    Johnny's world is rocked, Robin is honest with Patrick, and Sam undergoes testing.

    After welcoming Robin home, Patrick tells her he knows she's the patient she's been talking about. After some back and forth about why she didn’t tell him, Robin admits that she was actually in Seattle. She's now on a third protocol under a doctor who has had great results with his patients in Africa. They'll know in a few weeks if it's working, but that they have good reason to hope. She explains that she doesn’t want him and Emma to watch her get sick like Stone did if the medication doesn't work. She wants them to remember her like she is now. Patrick assures her the disease won't take away who she is. He holds her as she cries and says she's scared. He doesn’t want any more secrets. She agrees. He asks if Lisa messed with her medication. She says there's no way to know for sure. He blames himself, which is exactly what she didn’t want. They move on to debating her asking Elizabeth to take her place and going to Jason before coming to him. She explains she wanted Jason to help her disappear. This tears Patrick up even more. Patrick declares she will beat this and he will be there every step of the way. He adds that taking off is crazy. Robin agrees because she loves him and Emma too much to leave. He wants them to do this together from now on.

    Sam and Jason meet with Kelly in regards to a paternity test. She tells them it's an invasive procedure, which could cause a miscarriage. Jason tells Sam it's up to her. Sam needs to know and wants the test. Elizabeth finds Jason waiting for Sam near the hub. He tells her he's having tests done. Sam returns with Kelly, who says they should have the results in a week to ten days. Liz curiously looks on.

    Kate caustically greets Jax at the airport bar. She tells him he looks good for a dead man. They debate how dangerous Sonny is and Jax's decision to play dead. Jax then says he has a business proposition for her. Kate agrees to it and says she'll take care of the details when she gets home. Jax's flight is called and he says goodbye. Kate gets a call from the person she's supposed to meet, who isn't coming. Annoyed, she reminds them they aren't supposed to make it difficult for her.

    At Johnny's, Sonny gleefully tells him Anthony isn't his father and hands him his birth certificate. Johnny looks at it which says Gino Soleito is his father. Johnny doesn't believe it, but Sonny insists it's true. He chuckles as he tells Johnny they haven't gotten to the best part: Claudia was his mother. Sonny says he's still a Zacchara, just not in the way he thought. Johnny pulls a gun on him and declares he will die tonight. Sonny reminds him he didn’t get violent with him. He just brought the truth. Sonny leaves, as a devastated Johnny takes it all in.

    After Steve helps Maggie with her patient at the hospital, she convinces him to head to the roof to blow off some steam like they used to in Memphis. They write positive affirmations on paper and fly them off the roof for passersby to read. Steve says it's too bad everything in life can't be this simple. Olivia shows up. Maggie smirks as she tells Olivia not to be too hard on Steve because she's always been a bad influence. After Maggie exits, Steve explains they were just unwinding by healing their souls. Olivia is apparently appeased, as they start making out.

    Tracy is thrilled to see Luke at her wedding to Anthony, but her jaw drops when she learns he's not there to stop the proceedings. Anthony orders the minister to start things, but Tracy says she can't do it because she needs tradition. Maxie tries to help by giving her something old and suggests Luke be the best man, since she can step in as the maid of honor. Luke readily agrees and helps move things along until Tracy and Anthony are declared man and wife. Annoyed at Luke, Tracy makes a show of kissing Anthony. As they take photos, Anthony reminds Tracy, "What's mine is yours and what's yours is mine." Tracy's face falls.

    Tomorrow's Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Robin gets comfort from Jason.

    Matt finds Spinelli is Maxie's roommate.

    Olivia questions Lulu's habit of drinking wine with lunch.

    That was great. Didn't see the Claudia thing coming. Awesome. What is up Lukes sleeve?

    Posted by TipsyTess at Monday, January 23 2012 01:25 PM

    Hi everyone.. ok I always said there was something odd about Johnny and Claudia as sister and brother do not act that way, but Claudia as Johnny's mother? Wow I did not think she was that much older. Are the writers rewriting this story?

    So glad Robin is honest with Patrick now. Please don't leave any more Robin as you belong home with your family.

    I really don't think Jason and Sam should have this baby as would ruin the lifestyle they have and change Jason way to much. We like Jason on the rough side.

    Well I am certainly glad that the writers corrected that awful "Robin" disappearing thing ...

    and now Johnny's mother is Claudia? What's next, he's another one of Sonny's long lost?????

    Hedoublell__ maybe he and Michael are secret lovers .... why not?

    Posted by Diana8254 at Monday, January 23 2012 01:31 PM

    Well, that explains why Claudia was so close and protective of Johnny. I always thought it was almost incestous. Didn't she try to keep Johnny and Anthony apart?

    Posted by bruceyboy at Monday, January 23 2012 01:32 PM

    I mean really Michael and Johnny seem unnatrually "drawn" to each other ....

    While we are at it I would like my mother to be Jackie O!

    Does anyoine remember what year Tract was in The City? I don't think the timing is right. Claudia was to young back then.

    So, as Sonny said, everything falls into place, but did he have to gloat? Anthony has hinted now and again that Claudia betrayed him, and it appears that it was with his rival Soleito. It was not that she was a woman which caused him to hate her, but the betrayal by his beloved daughter. He can't be all that bad raising his grandson as his son. I think that he is marrying Tracy to get his hands on Soleito's money which he feels is rightfully Johnny's.

    Patrick and Robin were just so irritating today, as were Jason and Sam and Maggie and Steve. Olivia, dump the wimp. Let Maggie have him. I don't know why they are repeating the Lisa storyline but they need to drop it.

    the acrtess that played Claudia (Sarah Brown) was born, in real life, in 1975. Brandon Barash (Johnny) was born in real life in 1979.

    It would be quite a stretch to believe that Claudia (even under the most liberal of soap stretches) could be Johnny's mother ... makes no sense whatsoever.

    ITA CYNIC. In essence, we really don't need the Oliva character anymore at all. I love the actor who portrays her, but she has no real storyline to speak of other than to be an irritating know-it-all mother of Dante and sometimes friend to KATE.
