    My Head Hurts!

    Tuesday, July 23 2013
    Franco gets destructive, Laura wants some answers and the search for Sam's father continues.


    (ABC)

    Please note that "GH" was interrupted for 2:08 – 2:20 for extended footage of Royal baby news where it was revealed that Prince William can change a diaper.


    At the hospital, Monica and Silas try to keep Sam calm about Franco running off with her kid. Dante shows up and tells them that Carly may have gone after Franco. Silas warns that the brain tumored Cassadine could be dangerous.

    Dressed as Jason, Franco takes Danny up on the bridge and tells him how much he loves him. As he holds him over the edge, Carly interrupts. She tries to talk him down but he suggests that Franco must have gotten to her. Eventually, she convinces him that the baby needs to be in the hospital. He hands him over. Liz calls her and Carly explains that she has the baby. Franco takes out his gun and holds it on himself. Carly tries to calm him down. He starts to cry about killing Liz while he was trying to kill Franco. Franco needs to kill himself like Franco would. "Yes! No! My head hurts! I've got evil in my head that wants to explode," he says. He holds the gun on himself again. Carly tells him that it doesn't matter what's in his head because he has a good heart. After some pleading, he puts the gun down. Silas, Sam and PCPD show up after tracing the call Liz made to Carly. Sam runs up and grabs her kid. Carly stands between Franco and Dante as they level their guns at each other. She promises Franco that he will be okay and she can trust him. He cries and falls over.

    Laura barges into the Quartermaine house to confront Tracy for lying to her. Laura has Luke's test results and knows that he is dying. Tracy plays dumb. Laura badgers her until she admits that he was poisoned by Helena. "It's horrible," Laura says. The Quartermaine explains that he is chasing the one chance for a cure he has. They bicker about Luke and Tracy explains that he ran off after she insisted on going with him on the search. "He may be doing it without you, but he's not doing it without me," Laura says. She thinks Luke needs her. Besides, he promised to be there at the birth of his grandchild and she intends to make him keep that promise.

    Molly meets Rafe on a bench and tells him the news about Danny isn't good. She explains how her mom hooked up with a stranger and got knocked up with Sam. He suggests they try making a list of all of the men whose names start with J that her mom may have known. Molly tells him this is all a long-shot. Rafe doesn't think they should give up and asks her to get something to eat.

    Taylor and TJ meet up at the Rib. They suck face. He pulls away and claims he just wants to be with Molly. She heads straight to the bar and asks some dude named Van to buy her a drink. After he gets her a Sex on the Beach, he asks what she will do for him. TJ gets jealous. Van suggests they ditch him and head out. Before they can, TJ tells Van that she's only 16. Van motors. Taylor's miffed. TJ tells her he cares about her. As they hug, Molly and Rafe come in and spot them. They decide to leave.

    Alexis is shocked when she walks into Danny's hospital room and sees he's done. Nikolas is sure that Sam must have him. They rehash their family history. She's sure the Cassadines are cursed. "It's the gift that keeps on giving," he jokes. She beats herself up for not knowing who Sam's father is. The prince tells her not to blame herself. He thinks they need to concentrate on what the Ouija board told them. They ponder the J's she's slept with but she can hardly remember them. Monica shows up and fills them in with the latest on Danny.

    Tomorrow’s Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Kiki gets some shocking news.

    "What's with the suitcase?" Scott asks Laura.

    "I want Carly," Franco says.

    Sam doesn't understand why Carly talked Franco out of killing himself.

    Patrick has to perform a dangerous surgery on Franco.

    As I mentioned a week or so ago, what FrancQ does next( the past three episodes) would have us all purchasing one-way tickets to Looneyville. ARE WE THERE YET?
    From the posts regarding yesterday's show, I think we all jumped off the train before it pulled into Looneyville and ended up in Port UpChuck. Where is Calgon when you want to be taken away? That is about as POSITIVE a spin I can put on this show.

    Yea, I can admit that GH has been waaaay wavy for a minute now...I can barely keep up with whats going on...too many new characters and new storylines going on all at the same time!!

    Hi everyone

    What a talented actor Roger Howarth is. Hi scenes were Carly were great.
    As for TJ, why didn't he just phone Felix up and let him know what his sister is up to. She just knew TJ was going to stop her so know he is back to the start..sigh, boring.
    Laura I just knew you would not give up on the love of your life. But will Scotty let you?

    Hi, raineysmom. Thanks! Trying to stay positive, but it's difficult.

    Yes Midas we are there!!!

    This is the craziest mess I have ever seen on GH.

    It's hard enough to keep up with Franco/Jason. Then you throw in Alexis trying to remember a name from years ago, Laura wanting to go after Luke and that nauseating Taylor and TJ...too much...

    I really hope they didn't interupt GH just to say some flippin foreign prince can change a diaper!!! Goodness gracious say it isn't so!! What is going to happen when William burps the baby for the first time? or bottles feeds him? or any other mundane task that is better left to the nanny (ies?) How many does a prince get Nicholas?

    It's a rhetorical question, but just how big of a $lut IS Taylor? She's about one shot of heroin away from turning tricks in the street. That's REAL attractive. What the heck are they doing in a bar in the middle of the day anyway? Around here (Texas), a bar could lose their liquor license just for allowing them on the premises, much less serving them. We've been seeing a lot of irresponsible drinking on the show lately. Where is Coleman?

    I've been hit in the head with so many references to “Jerry Jacks,” I can read his name in my forehead when I look in the mirror. If they try to rewrite history once again, and claim that Jerry is indeed Sam's father, Sam is going to be totally grossed out, and so am I. That would mean the affair she had with Jax, which brought her to PC in the first place, was incest, since he was her uncle. That's seriously messed up!

    The LINE OF THE DAY goes to Molly, discussing Jerry's history with Rafe, who comments on the unusually large number of unbalanced sickos in Port Charles.

    Molly (to Rafe): “We DO have a lot of (total psychopaths) don't we?”

    Yes, and I think some of them are writing the show.

    Was Nikolas actually citing some of the more outlandish moments in GH history as a way to excuse the sillier parts of current storyline? Essentially, this is what he was saying to Alexis:

    Nikolas: “Sure it's stupid to think that a Ouija Board could tell us the name of your teenage one night stand if YOU can't even remember it, but that's not NEARLY as far fetched as building a machine for controlling the weather! (Smiles and winks at the camera.)”

    As for the whole Frodd fiasco, I won't even mention that Carly actually made reference to the possibility that Danny could have “The Evil Gene.” Are you kidding me? RH gave a powerful performance, but not once did I believe that he or Danny were in any danger. They are trying so desperately hard to make him sympathetic, so that we will forgive him, and accept him as the second coming of Jason, the way Carly apparently has (my, she really IS lonely), that they even made Frodd cry in a very un-Jasonlike way, and despite Defective Falconeri's brutally bad timing (almost his signature), there is no suspense in the outcome of any or this. Frodd will be saved, Drake Jr. will fix him up, and he in turn will save Danny, and everyone will live happily ever after, except for the iconic hero of the show, Luke Spencer, who's DYING somewhere off camera while we watch this stuff. WTF??!!

    Gee, what a great show. (Staying positive...)

    Tomorrow show Sam wonders why Carly didn't let Dante shoot Franco. Franco will probably be a match for Danny but I can't imagine that his bone marrow could be used because of his tumor. I wonder what Franco personality will be after like after surgery.
