    Flipped On The Griddle.

    Tuesday, July 31 2012
    Alexis butts in on Molly’s date, Joe hatches a plan for Trey, and Jason helps Sam.


    Molly and TJ arrive at the Metro Court for dinner, but have trouble getting a table for two when there are four of them. Alexis and Shawn are there to join them. Molly realizes Alexis is worried they are going to sneak off and get a room. TJ promises her they are just going to have a nice dinner and prove she can trust them. Shawn and Alexis agree to have a drink somewhere else. TJ looked the menu up online and she is impressed. She has been feeling left out at home and appreciates all the effort he put into dinner. They wonder what is taking Alexis and Shawn so long.



    Shawn and Alexis grab a drink at the Floating Rib. He accuses her of being uptight. He thinks the reason she is so worried is because sex makes her uncomfortable. She asks him if an uptight woman would play strip pool at the Floating Rib? Coleman backs her up but Shawn doesn’t believe her. He agrees to go a round, which she wins. He takes off his shirt and racks the balls. He wins the next one and she has to take off her shirt, to much hooting from Coleman. They keep playing and the clothes keep coming off. Shawn and Alexis do a shot and he admits she is not uptight. They realize they are late getting the kids and she dashes off.



    Trey is with Joe at his cell. Joe wants Trey to bring down Sonny on the inside by marrying Kristina. Sonny’s family is living high off the empire that should be theirs. Trey is not interested in the money. Joe would be lying if it was just about the money. He wants payback. Trey agrees, but does not want to involve Kristina. He likes her and the last thing he wants to do is take advantage of her. Joe gets upset - he is family, not Kristina. He gave Trey the best of him and now he needs something in return – reclaim what is theirs.



    At the warehouse, Kristina is looking for Trey. Sonny senses there is something wrong and they sit down to talk. He misses her and wants to spend more time with her. She thinks maybe he is right about Trey, that he is only interested in the show. Sonny wonders if she wants to be in a relationship with a guy who cares more about a reality show than her. He wants her to value herself. She is not so sure anymore the show is what she wants. Trey shows up and tells them he called the cameras off. He has been thinking "Mob Princess" is a bad idea and they should rethink doing the show.



    In his office, Johnny threatens to tell Carly what Todd did. Carly walks in and asks them what Todd did. Johnny assures Carly it was nothing – they just don’t like each other. Todd agrees, but he is going to put all his cards on the table. He planted a camera in Johnny’s office to dig up dirt. Carly is very upset and wants to know what he saw. He tells her he saw her and Johnny going at it like greasy bacon being flipped on the griddle. She starts hitting him and insists he apologize to Johnny. She steps out to take a call and they agree to keep each other’s secrets. Carly comes back and Todd apologizes to her for invading her privacy. He admires everything about her other than her choice in boyfriends. If he hurt her feelings, he is very sorry. She accepts his apology. After he leaves she hopes the craziness can be over between Todd and Johnny.



    Sam is working on the safe in Todd’s office when Jason comes in. He wants to know if this job is a cover while she investigates Todd. She wonders why he cares and he shouts back she is still his wife. Todd is dangerous and he does not want to see her on his bad side. Carly told him Todd was at the baby’s funeral. She then tells him that Todd kept a clipping about her baby’s death. She admits she is investigating Todd. She thinks Heather has something on Todd and vice versa - a mutual extortion. She is close to opening the safe and he offers to cover for her. Todd shows up just as she gets it. They pretend like Jason just arrived and Sam is upset to see him. Todd wonders if Jason is such good friends with Carly, why doesn’t he tell her she can do better than Johnny? Alone, Sam thanks Jason before he leaves. Inside his office, Todd can see his safe was tampered with.

    Shawn is SMOKING HOT. Holy smokes that man is built. YUM YUM!


    Joss is in camp? She's 2. Very weird.


    Sam and Jason are so cold and distant with each other. They were painful to watch.

    Todd admitting to watching Carly having sex was weird and random.

    Coleman seems so subdue. No jokes, not his usual self.

    Did I mention Shawn?

    According to Jason, no one is allowed to be happy and live their life because it might cause trouble for Sonny. What a prick he is!!!!

    So painful to see Molly and what TPTB have turned her into--a smart-mouthed brat.
    PS to the writers, one striptease a year is the quota (even if this one today gave us a chance to see Nancy Grahn do her thing). Seen that, done that. And, was it just my perception, but didn't today's seem a bit forced--not spontaneous like the first one with Mac, Alexis and her former best bud.

    And, the case of Carly, just when did they dumb her down so much? She can't seem to get a clue, can she? But hasn't she been "around the block" a time or two at least--and shouldn't she be smarter than the writers are presently writing her?

    Sonny's trying--but the story with Kristina and Trey already seems to be dead in the water (apologies for the obvious pun)?

    The Jason and Sam story: will it ever end????

    Shawn, Shawn, Shawn- never put a shirt on again!! That's all I have to say!

    Hi everyone,

    Wow, Alexis almost beat the pants off Shawn playing strip pool at the Floating Rib. Does anyone else think it's weird that Coleman watches these games? Do any of the participants worry that these games are going to show up on the security tapes one day? I'll give Alexis props for still being able to sink the last ball having to line up all those difficult angle shots with shirtless Shawn in her line of sight and not breaking a sweat (menopausal or otherwise).

    So, I might be the delusional optimist, but I saw a little spark today when Jason offered to guard the door for Sam while she collected the missing combination number. My only critique is that it would have been much easier for him to lock the elevator so no one could access the office. Here's hoping that Todd doesn't move the paternity document before Sam gets another crack at the safe. Here's also hoping that Jason doesn't get so sucked into the Scummy and Son SL that he has some time to do his own research on the link between Heather, Todd, and baby Cheeto. Am I asking for too much? Maybe, but I'm not so easily distracted by shirtless men, since StevenLars turned stupid, and apparently Ewen turned into some villain's pawn.

    I'm also cautiously optimistic about the progress Sonny made with Hissy today, especially the advice about learning to appreciate and value herself. Too bad that will all go out the window when Tres Scummy drops to one knee and proposes transitioning her from Mob Princess to Mob Princess Bride. Too bad Big Scummy didn't send Tres off by saying, "Have fun storming the Corinthos castle".

    Ah, that leaves Todd, Johnny, and the beginning of a beautiful unstable alliance. I do have one question about Todd's observation of the "sex video". When he described what he saw as greasy bacon flipped on a grill, did he mean that they were sizzling, or that there was a considerable amount of fat sliding around on the desk?

    One last question: What kind of camp takes toddlers? I'm assuming that the next time we see Jocelyn she'll be about the same age as Emma. Here's hoping she's not still sucking on her stuffed animals.

    I just wanted to weigh in on the Tres Scummy sexual orientation conversation from yesterday's comments. I don't think Tres is gay, he's just very into himself and the possibilities that the world holds waiting just for him (in his own mind). I don't think he understands women, not that I'm surprised after growing up with his misogynist father who apparently is used to reminding him that his mother abandoned him and that it's the two of them against the world. Compared to Big Scummy, Betsy Frank is mother of the year.

    Posted by lily hunter at Tuesday, July 31 2012 02:22 PM

    the last line of my previous post should have read: Betsy Frank is parent of the year.

    DAMN!! I think I'm in love with Shawn!! Whew , he is one handsome man...next game Alexis wants to play is spin the botttle...ITA agree with you nancy marie, hate that Molly has turned to a minature Kristina, I hate when they make the teenagers on these soaps disrespectful brats. Also more shirtless Shawn!!!

    Posted by maja at Tuesday, July 31 2012 02:28 PM

    @lily, Idon't know if Trey is gay or not, but he just doesn't seem comfortable or have any chemistry with Kristina...I won't be surprised though if he kicks open that closet door.

    I see Hissy 2 is here again. What a brat she has turned into!!! I can see Alexis caving every time just so Molly will make nice again.

    I kind of feel sorry for Le Douche. He is going to get sucked into Scummy Jr's world whether he wants to or not. And married to that self-absorbed twit, Hissy??? I wouldn't wish her on my worst enemy.

    Maybe Carly would be better off taking her sex life to her house or Metro Court if she doesn't want anyone else seeing her and Johnny's romps.

    Sam needs to find another line of work. Worst PI ever!!!

    lily-LMAO at your sizzle or fat question?? Tooooooo funny.

    Highlight of the day has to be Shawn and Alexis and their strip pool. He can take his shirt off anytime!!
