    Enjoyed the show today, but a few things had me thinking--give me a break, like Sam opening the safe so quickly, StevenLars bashing Ewen after all the stuff he's done, Joe Jr getting into the PC jail and making off with Jerry, and Luke leaving the Dead Man's Hand in such an obvious place as a safe since he gave up the Haunted Star --if what Sam found is indeed the real McCoy.

    Loved Todd's crusade to get the 1 percenters to kick in the cash to meet Jerry's demands. He had passion to spare, best line of his was -which one of you hasn't lied, cheated or exploited someone you love before? Crickets.

    Jerry and Jax's argument was stellar, really felt like I was watching to siblings argue, and we found out money isn't what this is all about, which I already thought was true, there's lots of easier ways to get money than poisoning a town.

    Ewen was speaking for all of Liz's suitors when he said it was all about Jason, the perfect hunk Liz will never get over completely. When Jason said "Let her go or someone is gonna die" I thought it was a pitch perfect rendition of a hero in a cowboy movie, Eastwoodian.

    And I'm glad Joe Jr. reverted to form today, and both said Tracy owed him and went after Jerry.

    sladest38 - You could add the current PCPD commissioner, Anna to that list.

    lily--good thought about Jerry wanting the cards to heal his illness. But then why not just ask for them, or better yet, steal them back? Didn't take McBat any time at all to find them, surely Jerry could have figured it out too.

    @lily-indeed well as Sean Donnelly. So redeeming Ewen could very well happen and IMHO will happen.

    This “crisis” is entering into its third week, and they STILL haven't given us a reason why Jerry felt it necessary to fake Robin's death, kidnap her, and then poison a whole town. Today he said it's not about money. Okay, so what the heck IS it about, and why go to all this trouble? Surely there are easier and less drastic means to achieve the same results we're seeing now.

    The way I see it, the writers wanted a something BIG that threatened the whole town which is fine, but they failed to show us any reason why the bad guy would choose this particular means to further his evil plans over some other extortion plot. Instead, they're trying to distract us with this Dead Man's Hand business and Bigfoot's motivation for helping Jerry, instead of explaining why Jerry is doing what he's doing. At this point, it's impossible to believe this is all going according to Jerry's plan, unless there is no “cure,” and that his demand for the money is just a distraction to hide the fact that Jerry is dying and he wants to take everyone with him. If his plan all along was to watch Port Charles die before he did, I could believe that, but if that's the case then JUST SAY SO ALREADY!

    Jerry's escape was ludicrous. There's no way that Jax and Jerry's conversation wouldn't have been monitored live and recorded on video – it's not privileged – and as soon as Jax grabbed the guard every cop, FBI, and Homeland Security guy would've descended on them if for no other reason than to keep Jax from killing Jerry. And how could they sneak Jerry out of a locked down police station and past an angry mob that has seen his face plastered all over their TV's?

    Worst. Hostage situation. EVER!

    Dr. Bigfoot is the whiniest, most pathetic excuse for a hostage taker that I have ever seen! He kidnapped Liz because he LOVES her? He's going to take her to Jerry to REASON with him? This is all JASON'S fault? I kept yelling at Jason to pull the trigger just to shut him up, and if Liz got shot, well that was just a chance I was willing to take. I kinda wanted her to shut up too!

    You know, just once when someone has a gun go off right next to their face like Elizabeth did, I'd like them to say “Huh?” the next time someone speaks to them, because their ears would be ringing from the noise.

    Jason is the most casual gunshot victim I've ever seen. He's got a bullet in his leg that probably nicked an artery, and yet he's making goo-goo eyes at Liz. That was stupid, but at least it shut her up. Judging from the glazed look in her eyes, I'll be surprised if she doesn't apply pressure to the wrong leg, if you know what I mean.

    All I know is, if that was me, I'd be demanding to see a doctor – any doctor besides Steven Lars, that is – begging for morphine like a junkie, and crying for my mommy.

    Todd, the low life baby switcher, was really on a roll today. Being feverish and desperate brings out the best in him, or at least the funniest. The Amish? “Sonny with a chance of vengeance?” “A Wonderful Life starring Joe Pesci?” “Jimmy Hoffa?” All hilarious lines, but he saved my favorite for the end when he walked into the police station.

    Todd: “Hello policemen and gentlemen. I'd like to introduce the rest of the band. We are 'Port Charles and the One-Percenters' and we're here to see Jerry Jax.”

    I also laughed when Johnny was on the phone with whomever knows where the money is hidden next to the buried body and said, "No not all of it". Wow Carly has really honed her money maker into a heat seeking fortune hunting missle and her aim is impecable.

    I love Todd! I haven't seen the epie yet, but Todd always gets the best one-liners, and no matter how desperate the situation is, he can make me laugh!

    Happy Tuesday, my friends. Today's show sounds ok, but I'm more interested to know...

    Spoiler Alert--- Was the Maxie Patrick talking to, our Maxie?

    I do love Jerry. He is a great villain, though I have to agree with scrimmage. I don't get his motivation.

    Say what you will about Ewen, he still got Jason. As I read that, I was hoping we'd get a Greedo/Han Solo moment, but alas, just like Han - Ewen shot first.

    Johnny is an idiot. Nobody can get into Luke's safe. Except Luke and Sam. That's just ridiculous. So she's with Saint McBain, running around breaking and entering, cracking a safe and Saint McBain just ignores it all. After giving Todd a hard time about everything. Some cop.

    Speaking of cops, where, o where is my dear, sweet Delores? I mean every cop is mobilized and my dear, sweet Delores is nowhere to be found. That just saddens me.

    So Port Charles has a 1%ers club. Nice. So where is Occupy Port Charles? That would be hilarious.

    FOOT - Had an outstanding birthday weekend. Only bad thing to happen was I broke my toe and no, I have no idea how it happened. So that's two years in a row. Car blew up in Vegas, last year. Broke my toe, this year. Next year, I'm expecting to break my toe, in my car while in Vegas. I mean, really! Who breaks a toe?

    Dubbs - At least you're not on the bathroom floor or tied to chair by your date. Happy belated birthday -hey aren't you old enough to know better?
