    Carlos and Derek discuss bringing Sonny down, Sonny finds common ground with D.A. Lazarro, and Carly has breakfast with Derek.


    (ABC)

    From the penthouse, Ava leaves Derek a message, "Did you get the job done?" She reminds Morgan not to eavesdrop when he asks, "What job," and answers a knock at the door. Diane hands Morgan annulment papers and retrieves Ava's contract for Franco's show. She assures Ava her silent partner will be kept secret. Morgan knows Derek's her silent partner. Diane leaves and Ava argues with Morgan about her privacy and denies his claims that she's sleeping with Derek. She thinks he's jealous. Maybe he wants what they have to be serious. Morgan slams the door when she leaves to see Derek. Alone, he remembers Derek's comments about wanting to take care of Sonny and his parents' warnings about Ava.


    At the Metro Court, Derek admits his invitation to breakfast was in hopes of her staying over. He wonders if the real reason she didn't come home with him is because she's hung up on Franco. Carly could care less about Franco. Derek ignores a call from Ava. Carly excuses herself when Carlos arrives and Derek kisses her before she leaves. Alone, Carlos confirms the coffee warehouse job is done but he's confused about hitting a legit business. Derek wants to follow the money. Ava breaks up their meeting and learns Corinthos is down for the count. Morgan arrives and listens outside as Ava jokes that Morgan thinks she's sleeping with her own brother. In his room, Franco's disturbed at the series of striped paintings. Heather startles him. She wants an honest opinion and asks, "Do you like them?" She's busy explaining how much she wants to please him when there's a knock on the door. Carly threatens to come in and he begs Heather to hide. Carly's surprised by all the paintings when she enters. Heather eavesdrops as Carly explains she wants her money and overhears Franco take credit for her work – the masterpieces for his upcoming show. Carly promises to bring Derek and leaves. Franco claims he didn't want to ruin the mystique of his new art by showing it to Carly when Heather storms out upset. He refuses to show Heather, leaving her eager to see his show.

    At Kelly's, Kiki's interested in Michael's visit with AJ. He discusses AJ's chances when Lucy comes in promoting Scott Baldwin's run for D.A. Kiki wonders how a change in D.A. could affect AJ's chances. Michael thinks anything's better than going up against D.A. Lazarro. Outside, Scott discusses his campaign with Lucy. In a perfect world, Laura would be by his side. Lucy gives him a pep talk. Scott wonders if her involvement is an escape from the distraction that Kevin is busy somewhere else without her. Lucy's upset at his inference that her marriage is on the skids like his and she rushes off to meet Kevin. Later, Diane joins Kiki and Michael inside. She's hopeful at the prospect of winning the case if Scott's elected. She gives Kiki annulment papers before joining Scott. Scott refuses to tell Diane his thoughts on AJ's case until he's in office. She promises to file Kiki's annulment papers when she leaves. When Scott leaves, he's surprised to find Heather in disguise waiting outside.

    Alexis is surprised the DNA results are in so fast when she meets Sam at GH. Sam wants to get it over with. Alexis opens the results and shares that Sam and Lucas are a match. He's her brother and Julian Jerome is her father. Sam's sad, thinking the moment would have been one where she'd find out who her father was and then she'd meet him. Alexis remembers Julian as being handsome and nice but it's probably better she never got to know him. Julian Jerome became a dangerous man. She reminds her something good came of it – she has a sibling out there. Sam remembers something Kiki said about her mother and wonders if her father is Ava's brother. They are discussing Julian's only sister, Olivia, who is also dead when Lucy arrives. Alexis asks her about her relationship with Victor Jerome. Lucy recalls another mistress that he had a child with.

    Sonny and Shawn investigate the coffee warehouse. Inventory is in disarray causing Sonny distress. They've been hit again. Both are startled when D.A. Lazarro arrives with the police. He wants to help Sonny. He needs to look tough on crime during election time and needs a big name to take down. Sonny gives him Julian Jerome. Lazarro wants proof and Sonny plans to leave that up to Lazarro hoping he can retrieve old case files. Carly wants to know about Morgan when she finds them and Sonny tells her where he's staying.

    Carly finds Ava's penthouse empty.

    Back at the Metro Court, Diane has a problem with the fact that Franco didn't paint any of the striped paintings.

    Tomorrow’s Port Charles spoilers for General Hospital:

    Michael wants to help Sonny.

    Morgan interrupts Ava and Derek.

    Franco doesn't want a written contract.

    Lucy tells Sam never to fall for a doctor.

    Just in time for Halloween! A free AJ fright mask on the front page of the newspaper, for all the poor kids. Where did they find THAT picture?

    The best part of the whole show was when Frodd stopped Heather from mentioning Todd Manning's name, which would've caused a tear in the fabric of reality, and destroyed the entire universe. Whew! That was close!

    At least we got a little update on AJ, and we can cross Lucy and Scotty off the MIA list. Lucy was as irritating as usual, but what's different now is that she tells HERSELF to shut up. That's an improvement I guess, and I credit Lucy's newly found self-awareness to Kevin's influence.

    Did Carly REALLY have the nerve to tell Ick that she likes to “take it slow” after shoving her tongue down his throat the other day? Who is she trying to kid? Oh, right. Ick. If she's not careful, she'll fool him all the way into his bed.

    I've been very critical of Moron, so even in spite of his characteristically idiotic, eye-rolling declaration of his “feelings” for Stiffler's Mom, I've got to give him some credit today. I actually enjoyed watching Moron and Ava snipe at each other over the pen, especially her crack about his texting. That's something I can watch them do that doesn't put me off my lunch. I also liked seeing Moron force his long idle brain to process all the clues that have been right in front of his nose all along, and put it all together. Amazingly, he cracked the case that his mommy hired Spinelli to solve! Best of all was seeing “Stealth Moron.” He could teach Spinelli a thing or two about how to spy on people without getting caught. The question is, whose side will he come down on? Will he willingly join forces with his father's enemies, or will he put their differences aside and tell Sonny what he's learned. Either way, this time it looks like it's Moron who's going to get caught in the crossfire.

    I'm glad to hear the Jeromes have abandoned their plans to take over ELQ. That was always a stupid idea, especially the way Ava botched everything from the beginning. If she would've backed AJ over Tracy, and pushed Kinky to marry Michael instead of Moron, her daughter would've not only been a real Q, but she would've been first in line to inherit control of the company, especially if AJ and Michael died in some unfortunate “accident.”

    Was there ever someone on this show named “Demetria” for real? Where do these soap people come up with these names?

    I'm really looking forward to seeing all the topless women it's going to take to balance out the number of shirtless men I've been subjected to lately. At this rate, it's going to take a group shower scene, or perhaps something in the steam room at Deception Spa with all the hot women in the cast wearing nothing but very tiny towels. Heck, at this point, I wouldn't care if it was Epiphany, Alice, and Heather.

    Okay, that's a total lie, but that just goes to show how bad this is getting!

    **********Rumor/Speculation**********

    With todays shout out to Ryan's Hope and rumors going about that Ilene Kristin is taping at GH, could she possibly be reprising her role as Delia Reid Ryan, aka Ava's mother???????

    Good Afternoon everyone,

    Watch Jason Thompson on the "View" this morning. Guest co-hosting with the gals. It was nice to see him.

    Now, on with the show. As soon I realized it was going to be the Michael, kinky, and the Moran hour, I turned it off.
    Instead, I read the recaps to see what I missed. Not much, except I missed the sighting of Lucy and Scotty. For a while I thought that Dr. O grabbed them and had them stash at Cassidine Island with all of the others.

    So Sonny is working with the D.A.? That's should be interesting.

    *******************RUMOR/ SPOILER***********************



    Pemi~ This is what as been reported on GH Happenings.


    Apparently Ilene Kristen (ex-Roxy, OLTL, also known from Ryan's Hope) is taping some scenes on GH. It looks like her character will interact with Sam and Silas.

    Scrimmage--I don't know if Dimitra was for real, but if you look up the Jerome family history she's listed as one of Victor's affairs that produced someone named Dino. She went by the name Demitra Antoinelli. Not sure if this is just "history" or it played out on screen. I was only reading weekly recaps back then.

    It all seems to fit. This should be interesting. Thanks!

    Hi everyone,

    I have a theory based on the attempt to find one interesting thing about this show today. Stranger things have happened but is it possible that Victor Jerome's mystery mistress is none other than Heather? Actually my theory is an either or sort of supposition - based on Lucy's description of the bar where Victor met this mystery woman, Ryan's Bar (the family bar in the centerpiece of Ryan's Hope). Wait for it, because I'm going out on a big limb here, but my second candidate is Delia, the social climbing blonde who slept her way through the Ryan family and most of it's in-laws. It so happens that the actress who played Delia Ilene Kristen , then went on to the role of Roxy Balsom on OLTL. I like the idea of Heather as Ava's mother better just because I don't think GH needs anymore new characters.

    Now the rest of the show -
    If Carly keeps kissing Derek like she has been, then Sam is going to get a new stepmother. Let's hope it doesn't get that far because now that Derek thinks he has Carly in his pocket and Moron has used his tiny attention span to connect the dots, Derek is doomed.

    pemi - Great minds. I didn't hear the rumors.

    Did Alexis really describe Julian Jerome as kind and considerate? He got a 16 year old girl drunk,(yes I know, she had a fake I.D.) but he took advantage of her none the less and never looked back. Oh, and wasn't he a ruthless mobster? Kind and considerate, I don't think so.

    WTH is wrong with Morgan? Is he trying to pi$$ Ava off and get himself killed? Looks like his brains might have fallen into chiseled chest. I hope your daddy, who is dead to you, can get the drop on the Jerome's before you end up at the bottom of the Port Charles river with Jason.

    Looks like Sonny's back and gunning for the Jerome's. Of course, unlike Julian and Ava, Sonny isn't going to be stupid enough to expose himself before he shuts those two idiots down. Julian and Ava have been nothing but sloppy since they hit PC and really took their eyes of the prize and that's going to prove to be their undoing. I guess we'll just have to wait and see who will become,collateral damage before this is all over.

    In what way did Derek "hit" Sonny's warehouse - by slitting open some burlap bags of coffee beans? By the way Sonny, Robert was the Commissioner of the PCPD when Julian was "killed". I'm surprised that Sonny's pocket DA didn't include that Robert and Anna, the current PCPD Commissioner were once married. I hope Dante catches this guy trying to sneak out the files. By the way, why wasn't Dante leading the investigation on the break in at the warehouse? Oh, I forgot, Lulu probably made him promise to never go to the warehouse again after he was shot there.
