    The Whole Story, From The Beginning.

    Monday, May 21 2012
    Carly confides in Shawn about Johnny, Sam tells Molly about the baby and Anthony and Johnny fight over a gun.

    Dante busts into Kate's dark office with his gun drawn and a woman puts her hands in the air. It's Lulu. She tells him not to shoot and he is surprised to see her. He apologizes, but she tells him it was kind of a rush when he kicked the door in holding a gun. She has to get the magazine to press because no one else is available. They talk about Kate's assault of Dr. Keenan and Dante tells her he found the gun that shot out Anthony's tires in Kate's office. Is it possible considering the new information that the gun was hers? Lulu thinks the shot was too difficult for her and Dante thinks Johnny has the strongest motive. Lulu thinks Johnny is loyal to Anthony, but Dante tells her Johnny was out for blood that night.

    At her house, Molly brings TJ some ginger ale. Alexis is working late and they are all alone when Sam walks in. She is there to pick up Alexis for her Lamaze class and a flustered Molly wonders why Jason isn't going. As Sam tries to think of an answer, TJ leaves and Molly walks him out. Outside they kiss goodbye and Molly heads back in and tells Sam Alexis is working late. She asks again why Jason isn't going and Sam tells her that she left Jason. Molly wants to hear the truth and Sam tells her that Jason is not the father of the baby. She tells her everything and Molly wishes they could go back in time so she could stop Sam and Jason from going to Hawaii. Molly doesn’t understand why Jason is acting the way he is and offers to be Sam's coach.

    Carly finishes her coffee at Shawn's while she remembers the bracelet Johnny gave her. Shawn walks up and wants the details on her and Johnny. She tells him she caught him cheating and is done with him and he wonders why she still has the bracelet. She agrees and gets rid of the bracelet. She regrets not leaving with Shawn that night she got with Johnny but he knows she cares for him only as a friend. Besides, he is seeing someone else now, but is sorry she got hurt. She remembers how Jax managed to forgive her after she cheated, but she is not sure she can forgive Johnny. TJ shows up and Shawn sends him upstairs to study. He leaves and Carly gets the bracelet out of the garbage.

    At the hospital Jason, who was just leaving after seeing Liz, is approached by a nurse directing him to the Lamaze class. He tells her he was not signed up and together they see that Sam is signed up with Alexis. Liz asks him if he is okay and he tells her he is glad she has her mom. Liz wonders if there is any way he can patch things up with Sam. He tells her he went to see Sam on her birthday but they did not talk about the baby. He says she keeps putting McBain in the way and Liz wonders if that has changed how he feels about her. He wants to have their life back but is not sure they can. Liz and Jason hold each other as Sam and Molly show up.

    Outside the interrogation room Alexis gets a text about Lamaze but she can’t leave Sonny and Kate. In the room, Connie tells Sonny it was she who shot Anthony’s tires. She tells him she got the gun and caught up with Anthony, then got close enough to shoot his tires. Then she went to the office and that is when Sonny showed up. They had sex and it gave her the opportunity to plant the gun to make Sonny look guilty. Connie screams, then Kate is back and confused. Sonny tells her Connie told him what happened.

    Anthony has a gun on Johnny at his place. Johnny tells him he is the one who tried to kill him but Anthony thinks he is lying. Johnny tries to egg Anthony into shooting him but Anthony demands the whole story. If Johnny hated him for years, what was special about that night? Johnny tells him he woke up in a cold sweat and decided to avenge his mother. He left Carly in bed and saw Anthony put his suitcase in the trunk. He followed him and shot the tires. Anthony isn't buying it. He wants to know how the gun ended up in Kate’s office. Johnny tells him it was to frame Sonny. Sonny implicated himself by having sex in the same spot where he could have dropped the gun. Anthony and Johnny fight over the gun and it goes off.

    Hello all:
    I am going to start off with the trivial first by saying that Sam looked good today. I can’t remember her in earrings before, at least not hoop earrings. Moving on, her scenes with Molly was beautiful and tear jerking. I love how Molly was able to step up and step in and support her big sister. I was glad that Sam decided to share what went down and what is going on with her. Sam echoed what many of us have already said about Jerkson and that the root of the problem is his perceived inability to protect Sam from what Franco did. That’s what it all comes down to and while I can understand what this means for Jerkson, it also illustrates that he is only thinking about himself. Hopefully his ego will keep him warm and happy.
    Carly and Shawn are going the friend route and that is probably best. Carly is a bad boy kind of gal and Shawn is too much of a good guy for her. I do wonder though who Shawn’s lady friend is and whether we will get to see her. As for Carly, I can see how she can forgive Johnny for cheating on her given that her past behavior in that department hasn’t been steller. My puzzlement however is how she can get pass the fact that Johnny took advantage of and sexually violated a vulnerable and mentally disturbed Kate.

    Good dscenes with Sonny and Connie. As much as I find Connie entertaining and would like her to stick around, it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to have that happen. Her conscience and judgment are severely underdeveloped to have her loose on PC. I guess she couldn’t face Sonny’s accusation that she has blood on her hands so she promptly disappeared and now Kate will have to bare the consequence. I am not sure if Connie actually did the deed because there are a lot of questions and holes in her story.

    I guess now we are going to be treated to the power of flashbacks. Just like we never heard Carly’s and Johnny’s conversation about that bracelet and now are expected to swallow that story, we are to do the same about Johnny’s nightmare. I didn’t buy it one bit and if the writers expected us to, the least they could have done was to show Johnny in the midst of one such occurances. Johnny’s narration of why he tried to kill AZ and the reason behind it was just as incredulous. The only thing realabout the entire thing was AZ’s reaction to Johnny’s betrayal.

    This Johnny/Connie thing is so confusing. Who the freak shot out the tires?!!!!

    Yeah Carly, Jax forgave your banshee screeching butt? But you can't forgive Super Chest? Oh yeah I forgot. What's done to you and yours is 10 times worse than whatever you, Jason, or Sonny do to others.

    So, in all this time Crimson is only behind ONE print?

    Wasn't there a series within the Disney TV show in the 1950s called "Spin and Marty" ????? Jason could play "Spin" in the remake...OR he could invent a new kids game called "Spin the Tale on the Donkey" (He could play the main part of the donkey's anatomy)

    Posted by raineysmom at Monday, May 21 2012 01:30 PM last post this morning on Friday's episode: that's ok BUT I still agree with mamajj!!

    Hi everybody. Well two very interesting stories from Connie and Johnny. I believe johnny's story. I think Connie will say anything to be rid of sonny. Well Dante and lulu were boring today. Sam tells Molly before alexis? Alexis has been asking Sam to tell her what was wrong. An ok Monday show. I think it was Anthony who may have been shot.

    Hey, From - Spin & Marty was a part of the Mickey Mouse Club. (We won't think about how many years ago that was.)

    I hope we find out soon who shot the tires - this has been going on long enough.

    @ straight - ITA with you about Jerkson.

    @ from - Agreed and well said. Though I have never heard of that show.

    Wow, Jason blaming McBain for not being able to talk to Sam about THEIR problems. What a guy. NOT!

    Posted by jumps at Monday, May 21 2012 01:39 PM

    So, Johnny did all that and Carly never knew he left?
    Hmm, sounds fishy to me.
