    Can someone help me-- but doesn't Luke sometime refer to Lulu as his Popsicle? If so, how apropos now.

    I LOVED today's episode. I wasn't watching back when the Cassadines were on, but Stavros is one freaky dude. I can tell I'm going to enjoy his character. He seems like someone I'm going to love to hate unlike Britt... Ugh... And Brenda. I don't like her and I don't love to hate her. She's obnoxious. I think she did sleep with Michael, and he doesnt seem all that jazzed about it either.


    Aussie I read the interview with VM too which is why I believe she did sleep with Michael.. I don't think her letting Carly think she slept with Michael warrants the kind of character assassination she was talking about but I guess we will see.

    As far as the OLTLers coming back as different characters it doesn't bother me like it seems to bother others. I have seen actors come back as different characters before and while it may take some time to get used to it, it is like a recast to me. eventually I get used to it.

    Monkey, it doesn't bother me either. I didn't really want them in the first place but I guess we'll see what happens.

    Monkey-- Seem to miss you on the late nite or early a.m. posts. How is school going? Hope you are still doing great!

    I know there's some contractual problem with the rights to the characters from OLTL, but is there some reason why they can't even say their names anymore? Today, AJ only referred to Starr as “your girlfriend,” and Michael never mentioned her by name. When Carly was commiserating with Bobbie awhile back, she talked about Jason and Sonny, but Todd's name never even came up. Sam has talked more about Clayleb recently than McBat. Are we supposed to pretend that they never existed? That was a rhetorical question. Please don't tell me what's going to happen in regards to the OLTL Three.

    That cop that Oblivia hugged looked like his pistol accidentally fired when she pressed her tight little body against his. I thought she was the best dressed woman at the Nurses' Ball, but everyone looked beautiful.

    Speaking of the NB, what happened to Carly's divorce papers? What happened to Frisco's ring? Is Richard Simmons still in jail? Did they actually raise any money? Is Noah gone?

    Speaking of jail and unmentioned characters, did you notice that Noah never once asked Patrick about Matt, his other son who is serving a prison term for wrench murdering Lisa Niles? Drake Sr. - Father of the Year... on the Bizarro World! It's guys like him and Frisco Jones that give musicians a bad reputation.

    AJ is SO loving Michael's story, he completely forgot to fill him in on the meeting he missed. AJ is a hoot, and you can tell he's in an excellent mood. He's quickly becoming one of my favorites on the show. It's too bad he's missing the regularly scheduled floor show in the MetroCourt lobby. Brenda and Carly really play well off each other, which is amazing considering that they never worked together until Brenda's last return to PC. I wonder how the actresses get along in real life.

    Laura is really on edge seeing Stavros again. She seemed like she could break down any second, but when she was afraid of what Stavvy might have done with (or to) her daughter, all of her fear for her own safety went out the window. She rose to her feet and faced Stavvy, demanding to know where her daughter was. In that moment Laura became the same fierce defender of her children that she always has been. I halfway expected her to grab that knife and put it to Stavros' neck herself! Genie Francis' range as an actress is just incredible.

    FINALLY! An explanation why Helena switched Aiden's paternity tests and killed a technician in order to convince Nikolas, and apparently Stavros, that a Spencer was actually a Cassadine. It's not a very good explanation, but it's better than nothing.

    Another inadequate explanation was the one regarding how Stavros originally became fixated on Lulu. Are we really supposed to believe that Hels and Stavvy were just hanging out in the Istanbul airport like a couple of tourists when they just “happened to” (there's that phrase I cringe at again) cross paths with Dante and Lulu retrieving Luke, and that Stavvy mistook Lulu for her mother? I'll admit, they do have a slight resemblance to each other, but there are a million girls who could pass for a young Laura, and what are the odds against something like that happening in such a remote corner of the world? I thought he might've caught a glimpse of her when she came to the island looking for her dad.

    Stavros to Lulu (his frozen pop-tart): “Of all the gin joints in all the airports in all the world, you had to walk into the one where my flight was delayed.”

    Hmmm... not exactly “Casablanca” is it?

    Stavros (to his psychiatrist): “I'm not sure Doc, but I think my new girlfriend might be frigid.”

    I've got to say, I love the hidden lab set they built, all blinky gadgets and dramatic lighting. It looks pretty cool (pun totally intended), and it's good to see that they didn't blow the entire year's budget on the 50th Anniversary and the Nurses' Ball. They even had a door with an electronic lock on it! Welcome to the 21st Century. They should put one of those on Wyndemere to discourage all the uninvited guests that keep dropping in over there.

    Here's my question: in the finale of Endgame (the 2001 story arc of Stavros' return), Helena was caught and arrested, and I seem to remember that she was in jail for a bit before her inevitable escape. How was she able to find and return Stavros to health again?

    Though I'm willing to suspend my disbelief just to see RKK back in the role of one of GH's darkest, most insane, yet oh-so-handsome and delightfully over-the-top villains ever. Endgame is what got me permanently hooked on GH, and this storyline is awesome even with GF's awful outfits and mediocre acting (up until today; she was better but still nowhere near her best).

    For a hot second, I thought Stavros was gonna put Helena's mind into Lulu's body, given the way he was creepily talking about taking care of her. I guess he just plans on having a Mommy-sicle. But how ludicrously over-the-top awesome would that've been to see? Kate/Connie would have *nothing* on that split personality!

    I think Carly playing the what-if-Sonny-finds-out card made Brenda's childish revenge scheme seem a lot less fun for Brenda. But if Brenda drugged him (which it sounds like she did, given all the context clues), then she was either planning to do this from the start (which would rely on Carly walking in on the aftermath, which she did, but accidentally from what I saw), or she was planning to do something else entirely.

    Either way, she almost certainly drugged Michael, which in and of itself is pretty messed up, and along with presenting the idea that she slept with the son of her greatest love, puts her squarely in Vintage Carly's position. She's lowered herself to Carly's level out of sheer spite, and I just can't help but wonder how she's gonna fix this mess. Because I can't see Sonny *not* finding out about this.

    Missed opportunity: Bobbie explaining the pot-kettle scenario to Carly just to underscore the situation for Carly. I think JZ and LW would've gotten a great scene out of that conversation, instead of what we got.

    My criticisms aside, I'm *thoroughly* enjoying these storylines, and can't wait to see how they play out!

    Hi Bayou!! School is going great. I thought I did really poorly on my chemistry test, but I didn't... I got a 95!!!!! Can't believe it. I am trying to get over this cold I've got going on. Had a lot of pain in my ear so I went to the clinic on campus and it turned out to be an ear infection. And a fever blister in my ear which I didnt know was possible and I had so much fluid blocked that I busted a capillary in my ear.. needless to say I was in a lot of pain for a few days. Luckily that's gone away but the stuffed/runny nose and sore throat is still there so I'm taking Sudafed. How are you doing?

    Lily, I agree with your reason for Brenda coming back. It's all to get Sonny and his pasta. I guess being in Italy the land of many pastas, nothing or no one compared to Sonny's. I think she was also hoping that Carly would have called Sonny, but Carly was the bigger woman and choose not to.


    Sleeping Aussie, finally woke up from her nap.

    cbru, thinking of you and hope you are well.

    Slades, you continue to be in my thoughts my friend.

    Cbru ~ Hope you are recovering well and able to go home soon. Sending lots of positive energy your way.
