    Gee, everybody's coming clean, and it ain't even Saturday! AJ is being honest with Elizabeth, Sam, for once in her life, is being honest about her attraction to John at a time when neither of them was available, and even Carly was finally being honest with Todd. “I want you, I just can't trust you.” Why couldn't she just have said that at the MetroCourt, and saved us all a lot of trouble? At least Todd took part of my advice, to lay one on her and walk away. Carly will get tired of doing the right thing soon enough.

    Watching McBat and Sam, I had a WTF? moment. After all this pent up emotion, there was no way those two would've stopped before actually doing the deed. Besides the disgustingly unromantic and probably unsanitary setting, which would've been reason enough to stop, Sam and McBat had nothing else to keep them from making love. I was asking myself “What are they talking about?” Okay, it was more like "Why are they talking?" When Sam said something like “I feel like I'm never going to see you again” I thought, “Where did THAT come from?” One second McBat wants to move in to a new place with Rafe, and the next he's going away for good, and Sam's okay with that? WTF? He is such a drama queen!

    Speaking of drama queens, I have to hand it to the hopelessly romantic and somewhat weepy Felix for making AJ and Elizabeth's reconciliation scene very funny, and a lot less awkward than it could've been. I really enjoyed the way that was played by everyone involved, and I'm looking forward to watching AJ and Liz do the act... um, I mean THEIR act... for the ball... the NURSES' Ball! Sheesh! Get your minds out of the gutter!

    Another drama queen is Starr. First of all, who says “Was he rejoicing?” when asking how someone took some good news? And her breathless, post-coital, sudden announcement “I'm leaving Port Charles!” can't possibly mean she's really leaving for good. Michael's not that lucky, and neither am I.

    Luke should know that bombs don't tick anymore. Bomb makers use digital timers now, which are cheaper and much more reliable, not to mention quieter. I didn't care much for Bobbie's gift anyway, but it wasn't going to blow up. Luke is exactly right about one thing, though. Laura ISN'T acting like herself, jumping whenever Scotty tugs on her leash. That is SO not like Laura. I'm starting to REALLY hate it when a cell phone interrupts an important moment at the worst possible time. That's quickly becoming an overused plot device.

    I liked the nurses that ratted out Elizabeth for a price, and I liked the clerk that wasn't buying what Scotty and Lucy were selling. I thought Lucy's encounter with the mayor should've gotten her arrested – again, instead of helping Scotty further his plan to push Laura into a hasty wedding. I hope this latest stunt of Baldwin's pisses Laura off enough that she puts him in his place, and tells him to stick his ring and that marriage certificate where the sun doesn't shine.

    I thought it was kind of weird the way Michael recapped the last few twists and turns in the relish caper, and that they rather hastily wrapped it up, saying that Doc Kevin worked his mojo and Ellie was able to recreate the missing formula for the secret ingredient. It was kind of a let down after all the phony drama of Spinelli swallowing the formula. All that seems really pointless now, and the sudden ending to that subplot made me a little suspicious that they were eager to wrap some loose ends up in a hurry. Then, between Carly sending Todd on his way, in what seemed like a final, and surprisingly rational decision, McBat's strange and unexpected farewell to Sam, and Starr's reaction to that phone call from someone named Langston, I'm sensing that we've reached some sort of turning point for these characters. Even being SPOILER FREE, I couldn't help but be aware of the mess caused by the reboot of OLTL online, and their claim on the characters who made the jump to GH. I suppose they'll be taking off for a while, presumably to help with the relaunch of their former show in it's new format. I would assume that this means they'll miss the 50th Anniversary, as well as the Nurses' Ball, which is just as well, since they have no connection to the history of this show, and their absence will clear the way for the return of even more old favorites, who DID play a part in GH's rich past. It's very much like a class reunion. McBat, Todd, and Starr would be like the spouses of classmates who don't know anybody and are ignored, bored, and miserable at the festivities. I've heard only a few rumors about former cast members who are likely to make an appearance, naming everyone from Helena to Casey the Alien, but I'm just looking forward to being surprised when an old familiar face shows up.

    Then, after all the excitement dies down, I'm sure the OLTL refugees will eventually find their way back to PC and try to pick up where they left off. I'm just assuming that's the plan for those characters, unless of course, they're not allowed to return to GH for some reason. I have no idea (and please don't tell me) if they've worked anything out, and who is or isn't involved. I'm just going to enjoy the thought of Starr being gone for the time being, and the emphasis being completely back on the cast, both past and present, of General Hospital.

    Scrimmage - I couldn't agree more. I know you switch the channels whenever a promo for GH appears, but I'm so looking forward to GH being GH. Too bad the writers already screwed up today when Luke called Bobbie Barbara, instead of Barbara Jean.

    I was just thinking (dangerous for me...Johnny has had his trial and been sentence...Todd has had his trial and gotten off...even the little pricess had her trial and is now doing community service...When the heck is Connie's trial suppose to happen?

    lily hunter,thanks that is what I thought about the bread but wasn't sure because I never tried it.I will try it. Scrimmage,We fill the same about Starr we need a break from her.As for McBain and Sam they still could have done the deed as you say for old time sake.I agree with all your points given today.

    Also I happen to like Todd, John, and Starr on GH. I do think they got more people watching who were fans of the departed OLTL.

    I meant feel not fill,sorry. Maja, what trial is that? Johnny shot the tires out from Anthony's car.Are they charging her with his kidnapping? And maybe Trey's death.

    @ladybelle, they had a list of charges against Connie. She is I think out on bail and the charges were assualt on Starr, kidnapping of Johnn, and causing the accident that resulted in Trey's death. They mention it every so often and now not so much.@beenaround..LOL..too funny..FFF!
