    LOVED Tracy's rant against Sonny. Yes folks, he's a GANGSTER! He collects protection money, runs the gambling and prostitution in PC among other things and has an enforcer to beat up or kill anyone who crosses him.


    All these years of hearing everyone say "Sonny is a good man" or "Jason is a good man" really annoy me. THEY'RE NOT GOOD PEOPLE! They're criminals! Of course, most of the people who think they are good have a damaged moral compass themselves (Carly and Sam spring to mind immediately). I don't know what Olivia is doing with him when she's supposed to be such a moral person.

    Anyway, kudos to Jane Elliot for the look of disgust on her face that she had to speak with sonny a all!

    Casey1 – There's no question that Britt's theft of Dante and Nulu's Oreos was wrong on every level, just like trying to use the resulting pregnancy to trap Patrick, and then keeping Ben from his biological parents was also wrong. That's always been a given, which I don't feel requires any further comment from me. I certainly don't see any need to add my voice to the remarkably bloodthirsty chorus calling for Britt's head as punishment for her transgressions. There's plenty of posters to do that, but precious few who will call Elizabeth out on her choice of the “Scorched Earth” method for exposing the truth.

    What I find remarkable is the lack of concern for Nikolas' feelings by those who, like Elizabeth, are so eager to see Britt tarred and feathered, and run out of town on a rail. I have to laugh at those posts that say it's Liz's duty to “save Nikolas from making the biggest mistake of his life,” because the biggest mistake he's ever made was sleeping with Liz in the first place. It's not even close! People marry other people their friends and family don't approve of all the time. Those friends might express their concerns and misgivings, like Elizabeth did on numerous occasions, but unlike Liz, if their friend is still determined to go through with the marriage, they don't actively set out to break them up, and they certainly don't make it their life's work to destroy their friend's fiance.

    Even under these extreme circumstances, I find it hard to believe that any true friend would intentionally humiliate the person they are supposedly so concerned about in such a public way. There was no need for Liz to pull Nulu's pin, and toss her like a grenade in the middle of Nikolas and Britt's party. She should've waited until after the other guests had left, and asked Dante and Nulu to stick around before she revealed what she knew in private. Then she should've left to let them sort it all out. Of course if she had handled it that way, Liz would've denied herself the satisfaction of blindsiding Britt, and humiliating her in front of Nikolas and their friends.

    That's all you need to know to see that none of this is really about getting the truth out, or Ben, or Dante and Nulu, or even Nikolas. Everything that Elizabeth has done has been because she's so jealous of Britt she can't see straight. Liz can't stand seeing Britt with Nik, and getting everything that she, herself once threw away. We've seen this pattern from her time and time again. Liz's mindset seems to be that once she's had a man, he's not allowed to find happiness with anyone else, especially if she's not in a relationship herself. Liz doesn't care if Nikolas is heartbroken or not, just as long as Britt is humiliated in the same way Liz herself was when her own deception was exposed. Apparently, it's the only way she can feel better about herself. It's just a bonus if she's able to snag Nikolas for herself in the process.

    Lovesdogs,

    If GH was real life, absolutely! Like I said, I agree Liz should and has spoken up. Some friends, you can give them evidence that will put a person on death row, but they will find a way to make excuses and continue their life as is. You can only warn your friends to an extent before trying to control them and judge their life.

    You can slice it up however you like, i.e. it's the right thing to do. True. She has an obligation to notify Nik, her best friend. True. Even I, as a Liz fan, see there's a selfish slice in there saying that it's beneficial to her wants and needs to separate Nik and Britt. I understand why people don't think Liz is this wholesome goodness who is just looking out for Nik, she has a stake on their relationship ending to pursue her current desires.

    Scrimmage ~ Payback is a Britch.

    The banter about Liz doing the right thing or not, and that a friend would do what Liz is doing, is very interesting. Let's not overlook what it is Liz knows. It's not that Britt was promiscuous, or some such tittle tattle. It's HUGE. It involves several people's lives....Dante, LuLu, and Ben being the most important...and then of corse Nik. It also involves a professional ethical breach, and a criminal act. I think most people would appreciate being informed of this situation sooner rather than later.

    Liz has been in PC for approximately 17 years and has done her fair share of wrongs. Brit has been in PC for about a year & a half. When it comes to transgressions, I believe the Book of Britt is a good bit thicker than the Book of Liz.

    Scrimmage ~ As to a more appropriate time and place to have a 'sh!t-howdy-sit-down' and sort this all out, and not humiliate Nik in a public setting....perhaps in the real world one could risk the little bit of time and thought it would take to arrange an immediate, private conflab. But given this cast of characters, many of whom have much to lose and are thus desperate, given this creepy castle where all kinds of shenanigans are accomodated.....fugedabodit. The more that witness the take down, the better.

    I don't think there is any other way to consider Nik's feelings in the matter of telling what Britt has been up to as this lie has been going on for quite some time. I think posters criticise Liz because they don't like her and it doesn't matter what she does, she'll always be hated. There are some who would like to see Nik with Britt. Nevertheless, if Liz keeps her mouth shut or waits, she will be just as bad as Dr O and Britt. It isn't Liz humiliating Nik but Britt. Britt has completely made a fool of Nik for months. Nikolas gave Britt many opportunities to purge herself and she didn't.
    I don't think Nikolas is going to go running to Liz either. He is going to be angry and I imagine that Liz will be his punching bag (as if it was she who stole Lulu's and Dante's baby).

    bash20 ~ I agree with your post completely. I don't think Nik will run to Liz, or any woman for a period of time. He is going to need time to process this bombshell, on a whole bunch of levels. For one thing, Ben has gone from being his almost step-son to his nephew. Liz would be wise to back off, and let Nik have his privacy to work through this. Because you are right...if Liz hovers, she is likely to find herself the recipient (unfairly so) of Nik's anger if she is conveniently handy to receive verbal blows.

    Shades of gray- great post, ITA. I don't fault Liz for telling Lulu, though I do believe she should have gotten Dante and told them both together. She then should have excused herself from the situation .

    ***off topic***

    4my- Happy Birthday! I hope you have a perfect day.
