    Thursday, October 18 2012
    Todd wants Starr to keep his secret, Joe visits Trey, and Duke brings breakfast to Anna.

    Michael is surprised to see Carly at the Metro Court. He tells her Jason found Sam’s baby. She is ecstatic until Michael reveals it was Tea’s baby who died in the switch. She feels bad for Todd. She knows he was worried about Tea.

    Duke visits Anna in her suite with room service and wishes her a happy anniversary. He thinks their love can fix anything. She puts him off, but he is adamant they can start all over. She explains that her and Luke are more than friends. Duke doesn’t think Luke is good enough for her. Duke will do anything to get her to trust him again. She is concerned there is so much they don’t know about each other. He gets close to her – he knows she feels what he is feeling. They kiss.

    At home, Lulu and Dante get another negative pregnancy test. She wonders if they are doing it wrong. Maybe they need to try a new position. Or maybe it is Dante. Luke overhears Dante’s assurances there is nothing wrong with his swim team. Dante leaves. Later, Lulu senses something is wrong. Luke thinks he is losing Anna to Duke. He is confused why she is not more suspicious of Duke. Luke wants to get a DNA test.

    Dante goes to the hospital and nervously explains his efforts to conceive with Epiphany. She very loudly asks if he needs a sperm count. She hands him a cup and tells him to fill ‘er up. She messes with him when he comes out and comments how quick it was.

    Joe visits Trey at home and assures him that his only chance is on the outside. He still has a powerful ally with connections who put this plan in motion to take Sonny down. Trey wants a name but Joe refuses. Michael knocks on the door looking for Starr. Trey won’t let him in but he comes in anyway and sees Joe. Michael calls Dante and Joe pulls a gun on him. Dante answers but Michael doesn’t say anything.

    At the hospital, Jason tells Sam he wants her and Danny come home with him and share his life. He wants to be a family. She worries that he considers it an obligation. He regrets shutting her out and wants the life she dreamed of in her fantasy. She knows Jason would protect Danny with his life, but she needs for Jason to love him. Jason wants to be there for Danny every day. He will never hurt Sam or Danny again. Sam leaves to get a bottle. Jason picks up Danny and apologizes to him as Carly comes in. She hopes Sam will take him back. He tells her Todd could have known about the baby switch. She is worried she has been lying to herself about Todd. He is her friend, almost. But Jason is her only friend. They hug and Sam comes back. Before she leaves Carly tells Sam she needs to do the right thing and let Jason be a part if his life. Alone, Sam thinks they have wasted enough time and agrees to go home with him.

    Starr visits Todd in jail. She demands to know if he knew Tea’s baby died that night and if he gave her Sam’s baby on purpose. If he lies to her and she finds out about it, they will be done. She asks him again, and he tells her the truth. He knew. Starr is mad and wants to leave but Todd convinces her to stay for an explanation. He tells her about that night. He panicked when Tea reached for the healthy baby. He didn’t mean to lie, it just happened. Starr is livid he inflicted that pain on Sam. Todd can’t tell Tea and he is hoping Starr won’t either. The only testimony that can put him behind bars is hers. He begs her not to turn her back on him as Dante comes in. He asks Starr to leave because she did not sign in. She leaves and soon Carly arrives. She wants to know if Todd had anything to do with the baby switch.

    Tomorrow’s Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Joe tells Starr, "Sweetheart, you are my ticket out of here."

    Luke tells Duke, "Unhand that woman Braveheart!"

    Carly asks Todd, "Don’t lie to me. Did you switch the babies?"

    Jason gets a voice mail. "Jason, it’s urgent. Come as soon as you get this message. It’s a matter of life and death."

    I can't stand Starr. It's ok for her to lie for Trey, but her father asked her for a favor and she acts like it's the end of the world.

    Epiphany and Dante were funny. Epiphany asked very loudly if Dante was needing a sperm count. Then told him she will keep the analysis confidential. Too late for that. Then she told him that was quick and started laughing.

    I'm so happy Sam and Jason are getting back together. And with all this dna fiasco, why haven't they done another one to see if Jason is the baby's father.

    I'll never understand Jason. He feels guilty for the life Michael has had, he walked away from Jake to protect him, but he wants to raise Daniel?! If I was Sam I'd be terrified Daniel will get kidnapped, shot in the head or end up in prison..

    Hello all:

    There were so many great zingers and one liners today and I am going to let Midas and Lily Hunter do their thang. I will just say the one that took the cake for me was Lulu’s one to Luke “Dad, you can’t trust DNA, just ask Elizabeth”. So many ways to read this one, LMBO!!!

    Dante better stop by Casa de Corinthos and ask dad to give him his pasta recipe. His poor little Olympian swimmers seem to be taking a nose dive. Bruh needs to work on his entry; too much splash and not enough pizaz.

    I know yesterday many of us wanted Sam to hurry up and grab baby Cheeto and head off with Jason when he made it known that he desired for them to go home with him. However, I am glad that she took the time and opportunity to confront the straw that almost broke the camel back so to speak. They were able to put everything on the table; Sam was able to express her misgiving and Jason was able to assuage her fears while expressing his own desires.

    Yeah, we know that Jason said the night of the birth and after that he realized that he would have been able to love the baby. He restated that on the roof as well. As a mother in Sam’s position, now that the dust has settled and it is a reality and not a “what if” fantasy, I too would need to know that Jason’s feelings for my baby are genuine and lasting.
    It was great to see that she was being a mother and making her child the priority above her own desires and wants. And she questions how she will be as a mom? No worries on that front mommy Sam.

    I don't know Todd. How does he think he can get away with this one too? Star, go ahead, be the hypocrite that I know you are and protect Todd--again! I know you will...and that will be the secret taht ends your relationship with Michael.

    About yesterday, how long is Johnny going to live like this? Living with Connie is like a living in prison, but there is no real end in sight.
    And Sonny---can he really live with Kate knowing part of her (Connie) hates him with a passion? that is a lot to ask.

    Sam and Jason always work their way back. Now they are a family. how nice.

    Anna, Duke and Luke---zzzzz, can someone wake me when anna and duke are dead? I need my Tracy back with Luke.

    Per recap:

    YAY!!!! Sam and Danny are going home with Jason!!!

    Trey lost whatever browny points I gave him during the Chrissy kidnap situation. Mind you it was not a lot of points, but it was enough that I didn’t want him to be sent through an industrial size dishwasher like the tray that he is.

    The idiot who just proclaimed that he would do anything for Chrissy just opened the door to the man who wanted to kill her. Not only that, it looked like he was going to cover the fact that the oily grease machine was in his apartment.

    Star, I know you love Todd, I like him too, but don’t lie for him for the gazillion time. What I always shake my head over is how disappointed and angry Star, Blair, Tea, etc get when they discover that Todd has once again screwed up his life and screwed someone else over when they are the ones who always end up covering up his wrong doings. Having said that, the thing I like about the father-daughter relationship between these two is how Star out of everyone is the one who can get Todd to cough up the truth.

    Great post re: Todd &n Starr!! Totally agree!!

    hello everyone,

    Let's try this again! My problem I have with Sam is that she is still continuing to not communicate her feelings to Jason. They're continuing to have a conversation about whether or not he'll love the baby when it's evident that he loves that little boy unconditionally. Then, after he pores his heart out to Sam, she's unsure on what she'll do, so she has a minute alone, and to herself agrees she's going home to Jason. How about telling Jason how you feel, and that you will go home with him. Ugh!

    Anna, you started off good by putting Duke off, but why did you have to kiss Duke when you just told him that you and Luke were more than friends? Double ugh!

    Carly, you feel bad for Tod that he lied about the baby switch, but you didn't say anything about feeling bad for Tea and what she's going through? Tripple ugh!

    I guess though Star won't have to sit on whether or not to tell the truth because once Carly gets it out of Tod, it will be all over Port Charles before Star will be able to say anything.

    Wow, just as Michael's about to try and do the right thing and call Dante, Joe pulls a gun on him. It's too bad that Michael had listened to Joe when he asked him not to say anything, and Michael went along with it. I guess though if I had a gun pulled on me, I'd do the same thing. Joe needs to leave like yesterday and he can take Duke with him!

    Line of the day goes to Epiphony, when she said "filler up", when she was trying to get a sperm count for Dante. lol! I like this story and think it's developing very nicely. It's nice to see a young couple going through the challenges of trying to get pregnant, and both JZ and JMB do their scenes justice! I'm looking forward to where this story is going, and hope soon we'll have a Lante baby!

    Hope everyone's enjoying their day and will post as I read and on tomorrow's GH! Good show!

    That Duke sure thinks he's one smoothe operator. Not quite sure who's playing who. I don't believe Anna is so naive as to believe everything he's shoveling. And today Duke appeared to have found Mac's grecian formula.

    Hello Everyone, yay! I think we all knew that Sam would go home with Jason. I'm glad that they didn't prolong that anymore than they had to. Just as a side note from yesterday's recap in regards to Sam and Jason, I've always loved that despite Jason's misgiveings about his being able to keep Sam and his family safe even long before having children, it had never been anissue for Sam as it had been for Elizabeth, Courtney and Robin. No wonder why Jason had been convinced his life was no good for children? It just goes to show you how well Sam knows and trusts that Jason would do his best to keep his family safe.

    Wow Todd! you don't want anyone to know about your part in the babysswitch? Please! I hope that everyone finds out, and you know that once Carly's done with you, everyone's gonna know Lol! The nerve he has asking Star to keep that a secret. You're just as responsible for hurting Tea and Sam as Heather is, so get over it!

    Oh Anna, stop this! I hate that they're gonna dumb her down over Puke. H'es gotta go yesterday! Luke, just off him already! Lol!

    Poor Lulu and Dante! I can't wait to see Epiphany! She's hilarious!
