    Imponderable.

    Monday, August 19 2013
    Connie confronts Sonny and Olivia, Luke finds a prisoner, and Ellie struggles with what she knows about Spinelli's baby.


    (ABC)

    At the Floating Rib, Maxie announces her water broke. Ellie reminds Spinelli the birth is about Maxie, Lulu and Dante when he believes they should rush to the hospital. He reluctantly wishes Maxie good luck as she leaves. Alone over wedding cake, Ellie regrets keeping her secret. After he thanks her for reminding him he has nothing to do with Maxie's baby, Ellie asks him what if he did? He finds the question imponderable as she rambles about needing to give him children so she can forgive herself. When called to the hospital by Brad, Ellie encourages Spinelli to go check on Maxie.


    Tracy asks AJ if he's enjoying his last moments in his office and gives him a box to pack up his personal belongings. Security is ready to escort him out when she's through with him. AJ remains silent as Tracy continues to taunt him by hanging a framed cover of Connie's front page news story. He rips it from the wall and smashes it on the desk before stomping at it on the floor.

    Britt points out she's pregnant as Anna and Dante drag her into interrogation at PCPD. She admits lying about when she last saw her mother but is sticking to the story that she knows nothing, her mother came and went. Dante's interrupted by Lulu's emergency text. Britt wishes him good luck when he excuses himself for the birth of his baby. Alone, Britt pleads with Anna to let her go but Anna makes her listen to what Obrecht has done to her family. They're just weird coincidences to Britt and she thinks she's of no use to Anna. Anna will keep her as long as it takes, even if she has to deliver her grandson herself. Britt asks for her one phone call.

    At GH, Nikolas and Elizabeth wish there was more they could do for Danny. He appreciates her help despite dealing with AJ's problems. Elizabeth admits AJ was blindsided and recounts how he went after Connie. AJ arrives and sees Nikolas hugging Elizabeth. He rushes off and Elizabeth follows. In maternity, Dante meets up with Lulu and Maxie. As contractions start, Lulu leaves Laura a message while Dante calls Olivia. They're both confused when Maxie thinks Spinelli should be there. Suddenly the doctor believes there is a problem.

    Outside Sonny's office Connie overhears Olivia tell Sonny they made a mistake allowing Connie back into his life. They hear a sound and find Connie at the door. She admits being there long enough to hear them. Olivia believes it's a private conversation and none of Connie's business. She thinks it is and asks Sonny to tell her if he concurs with Olivia that he shouldn't have given her a chance. Sonny wants to get back to his discussion with Olivia but Connie refuses to leave, upset that Olivia finds her unworthy of him.

    In PA, Obrecht confides with Holly that Robert is in the predicament he's in because he knew too much about 'her.' She offers to let Holly know who she's referring to under one condition. Holly doesn't think she can believe anything she'd tell her so Obrecht offers a chance for her to hear it from Robert. Holly knows Robert is in no condition to speak but Obrecht can fix that. Meanwhile, Luke maneuvers through the hidden walls then down into a basement area before finding Laura tied up. He wonders why she's there. Laura knows, Tracy didn't rat him out, she confesses she just knew something was wrong. She's eager for them to find Jerry so they can get home before Lulu becomes a mother. Luke thinks that won't be happening since Jerry's dead. Laura announces Obrecht lied; Jerry's the one who tied her up and left her there. She's certain Jerry was keeping someone else there. Luke's impressed with the basement laboratory and considers if Jerry is alive than Obrecht must have the answers. Laura wonders where they can find her when Luke surprises her with the news that she's upstairs. When the make it upstairs, they find Holly unconscious. She wakes up surprised that Obrecht is gone and that Luke found Laura instead of Jerry. After Laura checks her messages and announces Lulu's baby's coming. Holly promises to stay on Obrecht's trail for Luke so he can keep his promise to Lulu.

    Nikolas asks Anna if handcuffs are necessary when he arrives at the PCPD. Britt thanks him for coming; she had no one else to call.

    Alone at ELQ, Tracy talks to Edward's photo. When Elizabeth arrives looking for AJ, Tracy guesses he's out drowning his sorrows.

    AJ walks into the Floating Rib and orders a drink.

    Tracy gloating is not becoming on you...what goes around comes around.

    Good Afternoon all – hope everyone had a great and safe weekend.

    The Britch was really in her element today with “Good luck Daddy” comment to Dante [I really just do not like him]. But she definitely cannot hang with Anna. Way over her head. And all of you were right that it was Laura in the basement.

    One thing Dr. OldBat does not lack is confidence.

    Man I want Maxie to fess up so Lulu and Dante can go somewhere and sit down.

    Ellie waffles so much about telling Spinelli the truth, she should have an Eggo logo stamped on her forehead.

    Will someone please shoot Liz and put her out of MY misery.

    WTF with the well-wishes? People are poisoning people, knocking them out, and those 2 want to discuss Laura’s latest marriage, and another of Luke’s kids. GMAB!

    Uh Oh!! (As you can probably tell, I’m watching now). Will Maxie tell? Will they give her drugs in time? Stay tuned – since my clock says 51 minutes after the hour, we probably won’t know until tomorrow.

    Told Ya!!

    Funniest line - Dante..’how about some more ice chips?’ Maxie..’no, that’s like a snow cone with no purpose’….LOL

    That's the Anna that we like..are the handcuffs necessary? yes...ha

    phbatl - that WAS the best line of the day - I cracked up laughing.

    Poor Luke. Good help is hard to come by. One gets tied up and the other gets knocked out.

    Okay, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that they REALLY screwed up the timeline between Corinth and PC when it appeared Laura got Nulu's message about the baby at the same time Dante did, which we know was mere MINUTES after Frau Blücher escaped. You're saying Frau Blücher couldn't have possibly driven the hour and a half Luke said it took to get from PC to PA that quickly, and that the events in Corinth HAVE to be taking place at least ninety minutes AFTER what we see going on in Port Charles.

    BUT WAIT! That is STILL correct. Laura only got her daughter's voicemail after she came up from the basement lab. Obviously the reception is blocked in the basement to prevent communication, so Nulu could've sent that message a couple of hours before Laura heard it. Laura didn't say how long she had been there, or how much of a head start Jerry has, but he apparently left in a hurry (with Robin?) to perhaps meet up with Frau Blücher. since she was going there to see him for some reason. It was uncharacteristically nice of Jerry to leave Laura alive, much less her phone so handy. I'm surprised he didn't charge it up for her and leave it open to Google Maps to show her where he's headed.

    Laura's reaction to seeing Luke was strange. She seemed neither relived to be rescued, or surprised to see that he was alive. Judging by the look on her face when Luke first mentioned her name, Laura was not amused to hear that Holly was waiting upstairs, but she DID seem smugly satisfied to see Holly laid out, and her prisoner gone. I DID love Laura's conversation with Holly, especially her frigid acknowledgment that she is not the only woman who can claim the title of “Mother of Luke's children.” Brrrr! If you didn't read between the lines, allow me to translate:

    Laura: “Oh, and I've met Ethan. He turned out to be a lovely young man for a bastard, especially considering his husband stealing mother abandoned him as a child, and never told his father he existed.”

    Holly: “Thank you. And congratulations to you on your re-marriage to your smarmy, uncouth, follically challenged, ambulance chasing slob of a first husband, Scotty Baldwin. Is the honeymoon over so soon? Well, I'm sure that a couple of certifiable nut cases like the two of you deserve everything that's coming to you.”

    Whoo-Hoo!

    Of course they had to split up. When it comes to Luke and Laura, two's company, and three's a crowd (unless your name is Lucky).

    It was also uncharacteristically careless of Holly to allow Frau Blücher to get away, despite the fact that she allowed her prisoner to grab her gun, a stupid move on BOTH their parts. I KNEW they should've tied her up. I smell a Holly sized RAT! She certainly doesn't LOOK like someone who has just been overpowered, and knocked unconscious. Dr. O is probably hiding behind that screen, and after Luke and Laura take off for PC, the Frau will grab some drugs from the lab to cure Robert, and she and Holly will be off to Switzerland.

    "Anna will keep her as long as it takes, even if she has to deliver her grandson herself."

    What??? That child has no relationship to Anna what so ever. I understand that it's Patrick's child, but Patrick is just Anna's former Son-in-law. I get that she still considers Patrick as family, but being a Grandmother to his illegitimate child is a little weird.

    Scrimmage - I like your dialogue so much better. And yeah, I was curious about Holly's being "knocked out". Dr. OldBat was talking about curing Robert, and the next thing we know is she's gone. None of them are angels (it is a soap after all), but Holly's background leaves a lot to be desired. So I can see her making a deal with Dr. OldBat to save Robert in exchange for her freedom.

    Don't believe everything you see. The Stairs To Nowhere STILL don't go anywhere, despite the fact that we supposedly watched Nik and Liz go up those stairs and walk through the door at the top. I remember distinctly, when Michael and Kinky had a heart-to-heart talk in front of that door, that it had a window, and some blinds that were always closed on it.

    Today, we didn't see the door from that side, but when Nik and Liz walked through it, mid-conversation, it was clearly not one door with a window, but double doors, made of solid wood, with NO window. There was also a corridor visible behind that door, not a stairway with a different color paint job. HA!

    They can't fool ME with their clever camera tricks!
