    Monday, July 30 2012
    Kate wonders about her baby, Johnny tells Todd what he knows, and Kristina asks Sam for advice.


    At the warehouse, Sonny calls Max to see if a trial date has been set for Joe Jr. - he must have justice. Kate walks in and he assures her he just wants to be informed of what is going on with his trial. She is unsure he will be satisfied with that but he promises not take matters into his own hands. She tells him that she threatened to evict Todd if he did not give back Crimson immediately but he refused. She doesn’t know how to sway him. Sonny wants to pay for her to start another magazine but she does not want to build one from scratch. She is making progress with Keenan but has to face abandoning her baby. It comforts her to think someone found him and gave him a better life. Deep down she knows he did not survive because no one knew she was pregnant but Joe Jr.



    Trey visits Joe in jail and assures him no one knows he is his son. He wants Sonny to pay for what he has done to Joe, who tells him Sonny stole his father, his girl and his birthright. He and his father would have been close if it weren’t for Sonny. Trey thinks he was smart to walk away from that life. Joe is upset Sonny walked away with his father’s empire, worth millions. Dirty or not, it’s his. Trey doesn’t care about the money – he just wants Joe to go free. Joe wants Trey to get close to Kristina. Sonny is ruthless. If you want to bring down the king, you have to marry the princess.



    Todd calls Carly from Johnny’s office but hangs up when Johnny tells him he knows what he did to Sam’s baby. Johnny breaks it down for him: The day before the storm hit, Dante told him Anthony’s body was missing. Johnny was upset because he has worked too hard to plant it. His men saw Heather take off with the body so they followed her. They saw everything - Todd came up with the baby, Sam came up with her baby, Todd swapped babies, Tea showed up, Todd gave her Sam’s baby, and Heather putting the dead baby in the planter’s box. What they both did was unforgivable, so what are they going to do about it? Todd doesn’t care anymore. He just wants Carly and Starr to know who Johnny really is.



    Jason and Carly chat at Metro Court when Todd calls. She tells Jason Todd is in a bad place because of Blair getting married to someone else. Jason wonders why they are friends. Does she know anything about this guy? He has a history of violence. He has taken hostages, shot someone who pissed him off. She knows she has a tendency to see things the way she wants them to be, but not this time. She is not stupid and Todd is just interesting to talk to. He was so kind to Sam after the baby died. Jason wonders why Todd would care about Sam’s baby. She tells him about the job and Jason is confused – Sam would never give up being a PI. He thinks she is working a case. Carly thinks Sam might appreciate to hear his concern.



    Sam only needs one more number to crack open the safe in Todd’s office when Kristina walks in. She wants her to leave early, grab coffee and talk about Trey. She wants to be with him even though Sonny thinks he is keeping a secret. Sonny doesn’t know anything about him but Sam doesn’t think Kristina really does either. Maybe Trey is holding something back. Kristina thinks Trey shares her feelings and she thought he was going to change his mind but then he started acting different. He was upset when his dad called and has been distracted ever since. She just wants Trey to go out with her. Sam thinks Trey does not deserve her if he can’t see how amazing she is. Kristina leaves and Sam jumps back on the safe. Jason comes in.



    Starr shows up at the club looking for Johnny. Michael arrives and they talk about their dinner with Sonny and Kate. They think Sonny took things pretty well, but Starr is worried Todd is going to ruin it. The truth is Michael doesn’t care what their families think because nothing will stop them. He wants to focus on school because he has to declare a major. He thought he would work for Sonny but he forbade it. Michael knows what it means and what it costs and the thinks he would be good at it, but there are trade-offs. She offers to help him study but he is not sure how much studying they will actually get done.

    Trey seems more mature than his father. While Joe Jr. was remabling on like an embittered Irish peasant nursing a grudge several generations old, Trey repeatedly kept pointing out that he did not want to follow in his grandfather's business and did not want the ill gotten millions that he was accusing Sonny of stealing. I think I am beginning to like Trey, but I will be disappointed if he courts and marries Kristina just to please his father. Then again, if he marries Kristina he deserves all he gets.
    Why can't Sonny and Kate set Spinelli on to checking the police records and newspapers of the date when Kate abandoned the baby. It woiuld have been a police case and in the newspapers. It should be a breeze to find out if the baby was found alive (we know he was, but she doesn't yet).

    I meant to say rambling on.

    I really hope Todd calls Johnny's bluff. It is about time someone did right in Port Charles. It would screw Heather permanently.

    So proud of Michael focusing on school I know his grades will be good.I pray nothing or nobody come between them. and liked how Michael said he won't let nobody stop them from seeing each other and don't care what their parents say.aww how nice of Starr to help Michael study. I know he won't get no studying done cause they going to be busy making out. Love this couple so please keep them together forever.

    Happy Monday everyone,

    Well Kate, when you find out what really happened to your baby, and get to know the lad, I'm thinking you'll not only lose your guilt over the dresser drawer incident, but want to stuff him back in there. We all know that Hissy's dad had to make a donation to get her into Yale, but even she doesn't deserve to be pawn in Scummy and Son's plan to "get back what is owed". I can see the wedding now, Hissy in the gown and tiara, waiting at the altar for Tres Scummy who bolted after finding out that Kate is his mother and the truth about dear old dad. It will be a beautiful PC wedding and of course Sonny will get blamed for everything that goes wrong.

    A thank you note to Carly for dropping some bread crumbs to send Jason after Sam. Too bad he doesn't possess the skills to crack a safe.

    It appears that Johnny and Todd have arrived at stalemate as brothers in dysfunction. When the truth comes out about baby Cheeto, I don't see Carly with either of these two unless her character has changed so much that she wouldn't care about Sam's live baby living in PA. I'm voting that although Johnny has known and hasn't told, Todd is the one who holds the bigger secret - that the baby is the son of Jason Morgan, the hetman with the bad haircut and apparently a bout with ennui these days. Here's hoping he gets his groove back soon.

    Poor Michael can't decide what he wants to do with his life. I love the new Michael, but geeze, how many college students have the open opportunities waiting for them that this boy has? Let's see, he could work his way up to ELQ CEO or go to work on the legit side of his dad's business, oh wait he could help Carly franchise the Metro Court into the next high end hotel chain, or he could go to medical school. I'm voting for medical school, as it seems that GH is going to be very short handed when current staff SLs are finished. That should give him the twenty some years it would take him to become a doctor. Oh wait, didn't Robin become a doctor, then COS in less time?

    Go Todd u don't have to take Johnny crap. But we know he will not tell Carly what Johnny did just yet.when Starr finds out she will not forgive Johnny.Carly will leave Johnny for good.and Johnny will have nothing.

    When Starr said my Johnny hmm yeah your lying Johnny.he won't be your manager once you find out what he did to your child.Starr will never talk to Johnny again she will hate him.wonder if she still going to sing.I know she will still be singing.

    It appears that the writers did some fast dancing on this episode. So Johnny has "peeps" that keep him informed. Why does this not suprise me? Scummy Jr & Hissy will make quite the couple. This should be entertaining. Kate might be unemployed, but she still has a ton of money, why wouldn't she hire someone to research drawer baby.

    Lily: Stuff him back in there--Hilarious!!!

    Oh, I loved the Thanksgiving dinner line today. Don't worry Starr, by the time you have your first holiday dinner at the C house, the Scummy family will be in the line of fire. Just keep your dad away from the back patio. Sam and Jason might be perched in the woods with their matching rifles.

    So what makes Sonny think Dante wouldn't let him pay the portion of Olivia's hospital bills that her Metro Court medical insurance wouldn't cover? Actually, since Olivia was attacked while she was at work, Kate and Carly, as the owners of the hotel, would be using their workman's comp insurance to pay 100% of her bills.

    bayou - Considering that there's a current live planter box baby missing and no one can find him, who in PC could find out what happened to the drawer baby? Spinelli needs to get his groove back too.

    Posted by cbru at Monday, July 30 2012 02:13 PM

    Did Kate really think Todd would shake in his boots with her threat to evict him???? LOL-she has no clue who she is dealing with.

    Then we have those 2 sterling judges of character.

    Carly just thinks poor Todd is misunderstood because of Blair. No clue about the babynapping and don't even get me started on how well she thinks she knows JZ. When all of this comes out, I don't think she will be able to run fast enough to get away from them.

    #2 is Hissy. All she seems to be worried about is that Mr. Le Douche is too distracted to go out with her. Just strikes me as being a tad selfish. Her enlightenment should be interesting because, of course, she will blame Sonny.

    I know soap time is lala land, but what exactly is Starr going to help Michael study for??? He hasn't mentioned school in months-LOL. Maybe he is taking online correspondence courses. This certainly came out of left field.

    lily-you forget-Michael tried ELQ and his main duty consisted of shooting rubber bands.

    Kind of a dull show after last week.
