    Cynic - I think that is the whole point of the brain tumor and all the talk about personality shift. When he wakes up after surgery - he can be anybody he wants to be.

    Lovesdogs: Thanks!!

    An interruption of the show for ANY reason would've been fine, but since it wasn't. As much as I dislike Scott I have to agree with him. As much as she wants to help Luke; and I do understand, she has no business running after him and leaving her husband behind....its simply not her responsibility or her job to save Luke. I get the conern and the reasons behind it, but it's wrong. Obviously this is assuming she loves her husband. If she doesn't, she should divorce him. We all know she only wants Spencer.

    I think Carly will have a new love interest soon.

    As far as I can remember, we spent more time at General Hospital in this episode than at any time in recent memory. Outside of the flashback to the footbridge and a few short scenes at Laura, Michael, and Patrick's homes, the whole show took place in several different locations all throughout the hospital. It made GH seem like a really big place, and even Ava commented on how huge it was.

    I was glad to see that Frodd was cuffed to the bed, and that he didn't go into surgery thinking he was Jason. I posted previously that I hoped that delusion was a temporary, tumor/beating induced condition. I don't think I could take much more identity confusion with this guy.

    Many of us predicted weeks ago that Frodd would be Danny's only hope, and I speculated that somehow, he would have to risk his own life to donate his bone marrow to Danny. I thought it would be just because of the vicious beating he took, but the convenient brain tumor ups the ante, and also gets more of the cast, like Diane, Drake Jr. and Sabrina, involved in the story. Diane in particular, was THRILLED to hear that her client has a medical condition that could explain away years of criminal psychotic behavior. She was practically giddy at the thought of getting all those charges dropped against Frodd, and again, it should come as no surprise to anyone when she does. The tumor angle also ties in nicely with Jason's history of brain cramps, so it works on a lot of levels.

    After the operation, and the BMT, I wonder what stupid soap cliché they'll saddle Frodd with next to squeeze even MORE sympathy from the viewers. A coma? Blindness? Amnesia? He's already done the “Evil Twin” thing, and we just saw his version of DID yesterday, so unless he's pregnant, they've just about emptied out the bag of tricks. I'm hoping we'll just cut to his inevitable full recovery, and the debut of the new, improved, evil-causing-tumor-free Robert Quartermaine. Naturally, everybody will be skeptical at first, but that will only last for about five minutes. After all, it was the “Tumor That Causes All Evil” that made him do all those horrible things when he was James Franco, and once he saves Danny, and saves ELQ from both Ava and bankruptcy, he'll be accepted and unquestioned as a hero.

    By the way, if Frodd lives, his signature on that proxy is revocable at any time, even if he doesn't dispute it based on the fact that he signed it while suffering from a brain tumor and under the effects of medication, seconds before undergoing surgery. Ava is feeling smug now, but she won't be smiling when Frodd recovers and finds out that Kinky is really Slimas' daughter. I'm sure he won't be be too happy about that, but Michael, Kinky, and Carly will be ecstatic! Carly because there will be no wedding involving her youngest and stupidest son. I can't believe he called Ava “Mom” before Carly even knew he was engaged.

    For a minute there, Michael looked relaxed, like a guy who had just gotten laid, and released a LOT of tension. Too bad it didn't last. Why did Kinky show up in person, when the idea is for them to avoid each other? Michael's right about one thing, Penny IS direct. I like her. She had no illusions about last night, where she and Michael helped each other satisfy a mutual need for rebound sex. Nothing wrong, or immoral about that, as long as they were responsible.

    What happened to Drake Jr's MoJo? When did his confidence in the OR need bolstering? He should be eager to operate on Frodd's brain to prove that he is the ONLY doctor capable of pulling off this modern medical miracle, and transforming a tormented serial killer into a rational, moral, and totally functional human being. This could be a published case study if an internationally known artist like Frodd recovers the way we all expect him to. It could spread Patrick's reputation as a hot-shot brain cutter world-wide. It's a no-risk situation for him. If Frodd lives, Patrick's a hero, and if he dies, it's no big deal since he was a dead man anyway. Patrick can't lose.

    As for Laura and Scotty, I don't blame Scotty a bit for being angry with his so-called wife. She spent all night in bed with him, planning to chase after Luke, and she never bothered to mention it to him until she was practically walking out the door. Then she lies to his face, telling him that she's doing it for her children and grand kids (who couldn't pick Luke out of a lineup) when the truth is, she's going after Luke because she thinks he needs her, and she's not willing to let him go it alone. Scotty realized his ultimatum was pointless, and said as much when Laura thanked him for giving her his blessing. He asked “What choice did I have?” Absolutely none. Laura was going to do this no matter what he said or did. If I were Baldwin, I'd be filing the divorce papers as soon as I heard that Luke was still alive, found the cure, and is heading home, which of course he will, right before Maxie and Britt do their Kate Middleton impressions.

    That's another obvious prediction.

    At the point of being wheeled into neurosurgery I would think a person would be so heavily sedated as to make it impossible to focus much less sign anything.

    Posted by cbru at Wednesday, July 24 2013 01:55 PM

    Really, Scott??? Did you really think that Laura would not go after Luke once she found out was happening?? Luke will always have a place in her heart and you, of all people, should know that. Time for a Luke/Laura adventure anyway.

    If I were Ava, I would be going with Morgone to buy that ring. He just might accidently "lose" it. And, no, he is not cute. I am still waiting for it to come out that Silas is Kiki's dad so she can rush to Michael with the news. That is why Morgone is rushing this marriage. I wonder who is going to support them since he doesn't seem to have any money and borrows credit cards. Don't see it happening.

    Felix should have punched Brad-what a slimeball.

    Evidently, Todd/Frodd/Jason is back to being Frodd. That is good because him being Jason went over like a lead balloon. And did some posters call it. He will be operated on for that nasty brain tumor that made him murder people, kidnap babies and create mayham. Then, the best lawyer in town is defending and he will get off scott free so he can turn into the hero of PC when he saves Danny. Gag me with a spoon. What a joke!!!

    I agree, cynic, and I will take it one step further. TPTB should have brought someone totally different to play Franco. That would have been alot easier to swallow than what they have done with RH.

    Hi Rans

    Hi Dex- glad you're back. About the show...For people like me its not about how realistic or not it is, its about how good is this story? How many characters can one person play and make us see a different person each time? Its about making some kind of sense whether realistic or make believe. Its like when you go to the movies and say..." Wow, that was great" and yet it was so over the top it could never be realistic, or you say..."that sucked". No difference.

    Dex & loves - I love your info on Sam's dad and Ava.

    Posted by akita at Wednesday, July 24 2013 02:23 PM

    Scrimmage- I guess we agree on Laura's actions and Baldwin.

    Hi Everyone! Hi cbru!

    bayou...you are so right...when I had my neurosurgery (& mine was back not brain) I was very woozy on the way to the OR then when they got me in there I remember seeing the mask come down but not ever touching my face or me counting...I would not have been able to sign my name & I have a high tolerance to drugs...the proxy should be totally illegal! And she was guiding his hand, or at least it looked like she was...maybe he will come out of surgery as "Robert Quartermaine" or "TQ" & not Franco so his signature won't count there either. You know she is going to use it to the max to hold on to "Q" money if he ends up in a coma & Dr NotMcBat Clay finds out Kiki is his daughter...Ava is a SKANK!!!
