    Congratulations! It's Menopause.

    Thursday, February 02 2012
    Diane diagnoses Alexis, Sonny confronts Kate, and Lulu ponders a new job opportunity.

    At the hospital, Robin tells Patrick she wants to put their new house plans on hold until they find out her results. Patrick tries to boost her confidence, as Mac angrily walks in to confront his niece about her health issues. She apologizes for not telling him. Mac responds that he would have and should have been there for her. She's hugs him in apology.

    Elsewhere at the hospital, a happy Steve and Olivia walk in after a day spent at an indoor water park. Maggie greets them looking for Steve's assistance with her patient. Olivia gets catty and the women exchange words as Steve silently looks on. Olivia heads to the elevator and Maggie watches as Steve kisses her goodbye. Steve then has a heated conversation with Maggie about their past. She reminds him people are still asking questions about it. They agree there are no regrets, but Steve wants to tell Olivia. Maggie warns him against it.

    Carly stops by Johnny's garage and finds him sitting on the floor drunk. Carly tries to console him despite his surly attitude. He stands close to her and kisses her, as Olivia walks in. Carly urges Johnny to take care of himself and leaves. Olivia tells Johnny he's playing with fire going after Sonny's ex. As they talk, she gets dizzy. She blows it off and then starts ranting about Maggie and Steve. Johnny makes some rude remarks. Olivia tells him she's not his punching bag so he should find someone else to beat up.

    Olivia returns to the hospital and witnesses a close moment between Steve and Maggie. She demands to know what is going on between them.

    Ewen enters Kelly's and asks Shawn if he's seen Cassandra. He hasn't. Ewen questions him about Ethan. Shawn doesn’t feel he would take advantage of the mystery woman. After Ewen has left, Carly walks in. Shawn tells her he got a call from a school about a job and assumes she had something to do with it. Carly insists she didn't. He brings up Johnny and she says there's nothing to worry about. She tells him Josslyn misses him. He misses her too. Carly says he should come by and tell her himself. He says they could go out afterwards then.

    Coleman greets Dante and Lulu as they have a drink at Jake's. Delores enters. She tells the couple her husband Eddie will be joining them soon. Diane and Alexis saddle up to the bar. Alexis is cranky because she is hungry, tired and doesn't want to be there. Alexis asks for some water with a lot of ice. She details all her recent symptoms – sweating, irritability, insomnia - leading Diane to worry about her. Alexis shouts that she's fine. After more probing, Diane deduces the Alexis is going through menopause. She giddily tells Alexis this is a good thing because now it frees her of pregnancy scares. It also frees her up to sleep with Sonny again without fear of getting pregnant. They note he probably would be the only one who could get around menopause. Mac shows up as Diane tells Alexis she can now have mad passionate sex with anyone. Ewen enters asking about Cassandra. Dante sees him and talks to him about his profile of their suspect. Ewen adds to it saying on some level the man wants to get caught. Delores gets a call from Eddie and angrily talks to him in Spanish. Ewen looks skittish and takes off. Delores tells Dante and Lulu Eddie isn't coming. She pulls out a job posting for a file clerk at the department she was going to give to Eddie. She leaves it behind as she leaves. Lulu picks up the posting.

    Someone hides as Delores walks to the alley.

    As Kate enters her hotel room, she gets a call from Sonny. She lies about being in Palm Beach, as Sonny walks in the door. Sonny wants to know what the hell is going on. Kate makes excuses, but Sonny grows angry over Kate hiding something from him. She goes on a rant about hiding for years behind her Kate Howard façade. Sonny understand all that, but they're talking about mutual respect. He demands to know what she's doing in Chicago. She gets emotional and says she will tell him the truth. She came to Chicago to meet with a guy.

    Tomorrow's Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Cassandra has a wow moment.

    Lulu considers a job at the PCPD.

    Sonny threatens a man in Kate's life.

    That Carly is hornier then hell. Johnny nail her and get it over with. It's been a long drought for her.

    I love it when Alexis, Diane and Coleman get together.

    What if Delores' husband is the killer and not Ewen like I originally thought.

    What's up with Kate/Connie. I certainly hope Sonny does not have another long lost child.

    So, drunk butt Lulu will be the file clerk for the police department. I noticed how she stated that Ewen was weird. Next scene was a man following Delores and Ewen had just left the place where she was. So maybe my first thought was correct.

    One more thing. I thought Alexis hit menopause years ago.

    From the previews it doesn't look like Kate is hiding a kid, it's a man.

    Posted by Unicorn Girl at Thursday, February 02 2012 01:42 PM

    Seriously Sonny???!!!! You're mad because Kate has a secret? Really Dumbest Mob Boss in the history of Mob Bosses??? And Sonny's winky dink is so good that Kate, who's supposed to be tough as nails, gets all emotional and confesses? Uggghhh. I hate when they make women just noodlebacks when it comes to a man who gives it to them good. How come they can't just get, love it, and still be strong women?

    Now they have me all over the place. Is it Delores' husband, Ewan, Ronny, Matt? I'm just confused. It's about time they came up with a story that kept us guessing. I find it hard to believe it's Ewan though with his involvement in the Dummy In White story. But I think he knows what Delores said to her husband. Can someone translate please? don't need the bottle. Just let Carly take care of it.

    Olivia, why DID you go to Johnny's garage? I think it was to vent about YOUR problems. I guess it was a little to inconvenient for you that he was dealing with problems of his own. Next time, vent at Steve!

    Best line of the day, IF I HEARD CORRECTLY goes to Patrick , when he tells Robin he wants to eat breakfast with her and Emma and........WATCH THE BILLS! Did anyone else hear that? I guess "Patrick" is from Canada and the Bills are the closet NFL team.

    Also found it funny that Alexis said at the bar she was turning into "Sybil".

    Liked a happy Dante and Lulu and a happy Robin and Patrick. They were amusing , not boring happy.

    Sonny has quite a reputation with the ladies. Diane gives Alexis the ok to go to bed with Sonny again without the fear of pregnancy, but changes her mind after thinking about the power of Sonny's swimmers.
    He was great with Kate today.
    So sexy and powerful and pissed.
    If Kate didn't want him to know where she was going, she should have said so instead of lying to him.
    She should have said" it's business and none of your business, that I don't report to you" and left it at that but, lying is what got her in trouble. "Kate's" acting today was really good, from surprise, to fear, to pain.

    Still thinking the abuser is Ronnie.

    Coleman didn't disappoint. Still with the cheesy lines, every line with a sexual innuendo that had no effect. He just falls flat and is used as a prop. Almost feel bad for the actor.

    Loved Olivia's winter white wool coat. What I don't understand is why they having her stomping around like that. Is that suppose to make her more Bensonhurstish?

    Kate's other man? I think it's her kid, but hopefully not Sonny's.
    Funny that the dialogue between Alexis and Diane discussed Sonny's swimmers...too contrived?

    Posted by Diana8254 at Thursday, February 02 2012 02:13 PM

    Does anyone know else is leaving? I know Robin Ethan Cassandra actors are leaving but surely others have to leave with John and Mannings coming to town along with Holly Robert and Anna.

    I don't thinbk Delores is married just pretending so other cops won't pester her work.

    Kate Howard, meet Sonny Corinthos. I don’t believe you’ve ever really met each other before.

    So Lulu is going to go to work as a civilian file clerk at the PCPD? Puuurrrrrfect! Lulu’s going to find her bliss and ruin Dante’s at the same time. I’ll bet Dante is thinking that Sonny’s job offer doesn’t sound so bad all of a sudden. Dante and Dolores have a lot in common; they’re both cops and they’re both married to deadbeats.

    The triangle between Oblivia, Steve, and Maggie seems a lot like the one between FauxMaxie, Matt, and Spinelli. They’re both boring, juvenile, and pointless. Who cares who any of these people end up with?

    On the other hand I still have great hope for Mac and Alexis. They just HAVE to get together. Of course, I could hardly blame Mac if he wanted to wait until “Sybil” whittled herself down to just a couple of oddball, extreme personalities, but that could take a while and who knows, it could be a wild ride. It’s funny to think that Alexis was acquitted of murder on the basis of temporary insanity, and it’s only now that she goes crazy for real. It’s weird how things work out sometimes.

    I’ve also had the feeling all along that all the build-up between Carly and Johnny was never going to lead to anything, and I still think it’s been nothing but a big fake-out. A couple of kisses for the previews and then they always find a reason to stop. Sheesh! What is this, junior high school? Spare me. We’ve already seen Johnny as cougar bait once already, and that was enough. We don’t need a sequel. At least it looks like Shawn is going to step up his game.

    Speaking of game, it’s always good to see The Cool Man behind the bar, tending to his customers’ needs. He’s as smooth as a 12 year old scotch, and probably the happiest man in Port Charles. And of course on a show filled with medical professionals, it’s left up to Diane to say the “M” word to Alexis. Naturally, she was more than able to rise to the occasion with her inimitable humor and style. More of both of these great characters please.

    And to do that, I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing less of Dr. Bigfoot. Ewen is a strange bird, but we all knew that already, didn’t we? His predilection for fully-clad winter skinny dipping was kind of a dead giveaway. And if that wasn’t enough, then there was the indoor astronomy, the storeroom elevator ride, and the fact that he likes to keep his blonde and beautiful amnesia patients stashed away for his own personal amusement. You can bet he’s not a truly dedicated mental health professional because he didn’t react at all when he met Spinelli who is a cornucopia of neuroses that would have any ambitious psychologist looking to get published frothing at the mouth to get him on the couch. Apparently, poor Spinelli isn’t hot or female enough to arouse Dr. Bigfoot’s professional curiosity. That should tell you all you need to know.

    I’m thinking Kate has a child that she gave up for adoption. Maybe this is Sonny’s child and now this child has found her and she doesn’t know what to do.

    I’m at lost to who Delores’ husband is. I don’t think he’s Ronnie because Dante would have met her at one time or another.

    FUBU- I too found it to be offensive and inconsiderate to mothers, and to women who might be expecting (poodles and other posters) or have lost a child, to make such cruel comment like the one blasie ? (not sure of the sp) made regarding fictional Sam’s baby. This board has always maintained a friendly, welcoming ambiance - lets not become like other boards with this silly Liz/Sam wars.

    Happy Posting.
