    Over My Dead Body

    Thursday, December 27 2012
    Michael catches up with Sonny, Ellie and Spinelli make a deal, Dante and Lulu make amends, and Sonny weighs in on Kristina’s decision.

    At the apartment Michael and Starr wake up together. They discuss holiday plans and she remembers Johnny wanted to tell her something. She tells Michael that Johnny was distraught but not about what. Michael says he has to see his father, and replies he hasn’t talked to either since before Christmas. He thinks each probably thinks he spent the holiday with the other.

    On the hospital roof Spinelli sees Ellie smoking. She’s upset about breaking up. Spinelli says he was dumped. Ellie argues about being stranded at Sonny’s and the Giambetti brothers ogling her and talking about ghosts. Spinelli says she shouldn’t worry about Maxie. Ellie asks if it was okay to spoil her evening and wonders why Spinelli left the party to be with Maxie. Spinelli begs her for another chance and a New Year’s to make it up. She tells him they both have to be sure. Spinelli suggests they meet on the hospital roof at midnight if they both decide to continue as a couple. They seal the deal with a handshake and Ellie leaves.

    Dante and Lulu visit Maxie at her apartment with a gift. They are excited about the baby. She receives a book showing the stages of pregnancy. Lulu brings a glass of milk before they interrogate her about going to the hospital on Christmas Eve. Maxie explains what happened and mentions she felt bad. Lulu is confused that she called Spinelli instead of them. Lulu argues and questions what she was doing. Dante makes peace and Lulu apologizes. Maxie asks if she is sorry she asked her to do this. Dante and Lulu try to make her feel like they are still happy about Maxie being their surrogate. They get excited and joke about baby names.

    At the diner Kristina and Trey discuss L.A. Alexis walks in and wants to know what news Kristina needs to break to her parents. Kristina shares Trey’s news and Alexis is happy for him, until they share that Kristina is going. They ask for Alexis’ support and Kristina says it’s a decision she has to make on her own. Alexis agrees and tells Kristina to tell her father but reminds her that Sonny is in a fragile state. Alexis sends them to the gym since it should be too distracting with the photo shoot for Sonny to yell.

    Connie calls Sonny from The Haunted Star about the photo shoot as Johnny struggles tied up in a chair. She puts on make-up and teases Johnny with her talk about her and Sonny. She takes off his gag and he yells for help. She tells him there’s no help and he can’t send her back to the loony bin. She says she didn’t kill him because she has a conscience. He bites her and she says she won’t take advantage of him because that’s rape and she’s been there. Johnny tries to make a deal. She puts his gag back on and leaves. Starr catches her locking Johnny’s office and asks where he is. Connie says he’s away and they argue until Starr hears something fall. They bicker and Starr won’t leave. They struggle when Starr tries to push past to the door. When the door opens Starr is shocked.

    At the gym Shawn gets Sonny ready for the photo shoot. Sonny shares he is not giving up on Kate. They spar and discuss Michael. Sonny speculates he went to the Quartermaine’s for Christmas when Michael walks in and tells him he is wrong. He tells Sonny that A.J. told him what happened. Sonny says he will hurt Michael, but Michael says he will give A.J. a chance. Sonny wishes Michael a Happy New Year since he didn’t get to wish him a Merry Christmas. Kristina, Trey and Alexis show up and share the news about the move to L.A. Michael questions what they are doing and then says he’s happy if she’s happy. Sonny is quiet. Kristina asks him to say something. He says, "Over my dead body."

    Tomorrow’s Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Kristina responds to Sonny.

    Carly asks Sam what she is trying to steal from Todd.

    Patrick asks Sabrina about her New Year’s Eve plans.

    A.J. sweet talks Lucy Coe.

    Connie tries to deal with Starr.

    STAR FISH... hysterical.

    Love Sonny and Shawn together.
    While I still miss Jason, Shawn as Sonny's back-up works for me.

    Didn't everyone in the movies Spin and Ellie mentioned have reasons why they couldn't meet?

    Lulu needs to chill when it comes to Maxie. Her commenting on Maxie's every move is going to make a long 9 months for them and us.

    Star .......I just don't know what to say about this character.
    Wonder what Kate will do with her now that she knows where Johnny is.

    Hi everyone,

    I sense a few teasers coming up. Many on this board are thinking that Kristina is leaving town with Trey and consider it a Christmas present from the writers. What could possibly prevent this from happening?
    The other teaser, SpinEllie. If I remember this movie correctly an accident prevented the two stars in the movie meeting at the Empire State Building.
    Are the writers going to follow the story in the movie with something that will prevent Spinelli or Ellie from meeting and one will think the other has decided to move on? I think there will be some disappointed fans and interesting story coming up.
    I have to say the last two episodes have been lackluster. Now is a good time to try and grab viewers attention, perhaps new viewers, with many off for Christmas vacation.

    Baby's name is gonna be... SPOILER


    Happy new year!

    If that's the only way to get Nuke to move to LA with Le Douche, then that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. It probably won't come to that, though. Sonny's just being his usual selfish, over dramatic self, making this all about him and what he wants, but he knows there's nothing he can really do to stop her, short of Trey's dead body, so he's really got no choice but to let her go.

    What struck me about his conversation with Michael was that he accused AJ of seeing Michael as the prize in some contest between him and Sonny and Carly, but that's really the way SONNY looks at it, like it's a challenge to his authority, or to his very manhood, which is also exactly the same way he looks at Johnny in his quest to “win” Kate back, another "prize" he feels cheated out of.

    AJ used to view Sonny and Carly as obstacles standing in the way of his relationship with his son, but now that Michael is an adult, they are no longer in that position. Now, they are no longer relevant to AJ, and they have nothing he wants. They are just annoying reminders of an unpleasant past that AJ would prefer to put behind him. AJ won't give Sonny a second thought once he becomes more secure in the knowledge that no matter what Sonny says or does, he won't be able to convince Michael to distance himself from his biological father. As far as AJ is concerned, there IS no competition with Sonny anymore, he's got bigger fish to fry. From now on, his relationship with Michael is totally dependent on his own actions, and that's all he's ever wanted.

    Or, to put it in terms that even Sonny can understand, Game Over: Winner – AJ.

    I KNEW Connie was no killer, but how stupid is it of her (or the writers) to have gone to all the trouble of dragging him down from their PRIVATE penthouse, into a car, and into his OWN office that he shares with Lulu in a NIGHTCLUB on New Year's EVE??!! And then she was going to just leave him there to go play patty-cake with Sonny? What was she thinking?

    Of course, she knows that Lulu never shows up to work on time, but she had to realize that SOMEBODY might show up to get ready for the biggest night of the year. This makes about as much sense as when Heather drugged Maggie at GH and dragged her back to her own apartment in broad daylight without anybody seeing her. It begs the questions: Why? How?

    Speaking of Lulu, she was looking extra HAWT today in that pink mini-dress and heels, but at the end of her scene, when she saw whatever picture Dante had opened the book to, she completely lost it, and Lulu's face turned the same color as her dress, while she and Maxie laughed uncontrollably. That was a great scene.

    I'm glad Ellie read Spinelli the riot act for allowing Maxie to come between them, and ruin her Christmas Eve. She was right in everything she said, and if it's meant to be, they will start the New Year fresh, with both of them fully aware of all the circumstances involved in their relationship. That was not the case when Ellie first got involved with Spinelli, but now she knows exactly what she's in for and who she's dealing with.

    I can only imagine what kind of romantic rooftop setting Spinelli will come up with (he has experience with that as I recall), but I really hope she doesn't stand him up, and I especially hope that Ellie doesn't send Maxie in her place. That would be VERY soapy, but it would also take the choice away from Spinelli. Essentially, he'd be “settling” for Maxie, just like some people think he's been settling for Ellie all along.

    Hello Everyone,

    Well, sounds like a pretty boring show today.
    Ellie and Spinelli are doomed. I'm sure something's gonna happen where they're not gonna end up meeting on the roof. It will of course be something beyond their control, and the other will think he or she's been stood up.

    Wow! I was wondering how long it was gonna take before someone had discovered poor Johny tied up. This story needs to wrap up, and they really need to figure out what direction they're taking Connie. She was kind of funny yesterday, and Kelly Sullivan is doing an amazing job! But, I wish they'd integrate her personalities already, and move on!

    Hope everyone's having a good day and will post as I read comments!

    Hello everyone,
    I want to believe that Newk is growing up and was glad to see that she had told her parents that she wanted their support and she needed to make this decision on her own. It's ashame though that Sonny's allowing his hatred toward AJ and AJ's relationship with Michael to pretty much influence his thoughts on Kristina moving away with her husband (unless the anullment had gone through and they have no ties to each other).
    The best scenes though to me were Ellie voicing her concerns to Spinelli. Ellie, don't listen to him. It seems that no matter how many chances you give to Spinelli, unfortunately, you will come second to Maxie, because as soon as she comes a-callin, Spinelli's there faster than you can point to the constalations of the stars. You deserve so much better.
    I'm really wondering if Maxie's really pregnant, because when she had announced she was pregnant, she didn't seem as happy about that as she was about committing to being Lulu's surrogate. I'm wondering if they found something else wrong, and she doesn't want to tell Lulu and Dante that she's not really pregnant, but that there's something wrong with Maxie? Just an observation and I hope it's not true.

    I liked Michael and Star's conversation, and liked that Michael wants to spend some time with both Sonny and AJ. If both Sonny and AJ would stop fighting over him like two teenagers fighting over what team they like best and allow Michael to make the decision on his own, it will make it easier on all involved. This story is getting very old and redundant and I'm not liking it.
    Connie, isn't bounding and gagging Jonny a little extream, even for you? I can understand that you don't want to get committed to Shadybrook or any psychward for that matter, but come on. If you're going to kill him, kill him. Don't let him suffer like that. Do we know if BB is leaving the show or not? I've heard rumors for months suggesting he was leaving, then was staying, then was leaving, so a little confused.

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

    Hi everyone.

    I’m having a hard time a feeling warm and fuzzy with Maxie being a surrogate for Dante and Lulu who have just recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary. Why would anyone think this was a good idea?

    What was Elli wearing for Sonny’s Christmas Eve party? That dress was the ugliest frock I have ever seen. I also thought her behavior today was strange — Spin needs to say goodbye. Yes, they have lots in common, but I think most of us like a little opposite in our lives.

    Dexdon- Hope you had a Merry Christmas.

    Casey- I think you might be right.

    Hi Rans.

    ****SPOILER TALK****

    I won’t believe the Steve Burton rumor until It is confirmed by our resident rumor expert, Aussie. If it is true, I hope they make an honest attempt at a good recast. I think it was Rans or mayber Lily who said they thought it was money that was the reason Steve left the show, not the family reason he gave. I like to give a person the benefit of the doubt, maybe it was a little of both.

    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to catch up on yesterday's comments before I started on today's show. I hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy Boxing Day to all our English and Canadian friends.

    Scrimmage wrote: "How icky is it that one of these days they might be getting it on at the same time his mother is boinking her father?" referring to Michael and Starr.
    I have to ask, does the same ick factor apply to Chrissy and Tres Scummy? LOL Let's hope Luke and Olivia don't ever hook up - that would be a trifecta.
