    GH Recap: Extra Explodey.

    Tuesday, April 08 2014
    Liz is shot, Maxie returns, and Madeline is arrested for the murder of Nina and Nakamura.


    (ABC)

    At the hotel Madeline confirms that Nina was pregnant. Madeline had taken graphic pictures of Silas with Ava and showed them to Nina. Nina told Madeline she was pregnant once she saw the pictures, but Nina believed once Silas knew she was pregnant he would stop seeing Ava. Madeline found out taking to many antidepressants could cause a miscarriage. Nathan asks how Nakamura fits in but she says she doesn’t know. Silas tells him Madeline picked up Nina’s medicine many times and Nina showed no signs of struggle when Silas found her. Madeline says she never meant to hurt her little girl and collapses in tears. She was trying to do right for Nina, but she made a terrible mistake. Everything she did was for her family and begs for Nathan to understand. He arrests her for the murder of Nakamura and Nina Clay. Later, Silas tells Sam he should have been a better husband, and because he wasn’t he lost his wife and child. She reminds him this isn’t his fault. He remembers how much Nina loved her little brother. Nina put up with Madeline if she got to be with James and got excited about everything they did together. He knew she would have been a good mother.


    When Carly gets back to Franco’s room he questions where she’s been. He thinks she’s been avoiding him and that she’s hiding something with Sonny. Franco knows something big went on because Carly is not acting like herself. Secrets are destructive and he asks her if she trusts him. She won’t tell him to protect him from the police and he tells her he now knows what’s going on. She thinks he is trying to trap her into telling, but he lays out his theory that Sonny shot AJ. Carly says that Sonny promised not to kill AJ and Franco is sure Sonny meant it until he shot him. Franco gives Carly the choice to trust him or not. She tells him he’s right – Sonny shot AJ.

    At The Floating Rib, Olivia tells Sonny that there’s a break in the case and hopefully Dante is bringing home the baby. She is overjoyed and wonders why Sonny looks so sad. He doesn’t know how Michael will get through losing AJ. He doesn’t want to see his son suffer like this. Olivia tells him whoever is responsible is whoever shot AJ, but once Ben is home the PCPD will solve this case too. She thinks seeing AJ’s shooter behind bars will go a long way to help Michael heal. She tells Sonny he is the only father Michael has left and he needs him more than ever.

    Britt arrives at Liz’s. Inside, Liesl tells Liz to get the baby and holds the gun on Nik as he opens the door. Britt is shocked to see her mom has a gun on him. She apologizes to Nik for her mother but he has long since stopped believing her apologies. Britt assures her mother there has been no one watching. Nik can’t believe Britt is really going to take the baby on the run. She tells him she is doing what is best for the baby. He says he never really knew her. Dante listens to everything outside. Liz brings down the baby and Liesl directs Nik to hand Britt a bag with everything she needs to start her new life. Liesl tears up as she tells Britt she wants to make sure she is all right. Liesl has Liz hand Ben to Britt and then directs Liz to Nik. Just then, Dante busts in with guns on Liesl. Liesl puts her gun down, then lunges for Dante’s gun. They struggle and Liz gets shot. Nik screams for Britt to help and she hands the baby to Dante. Britt puts pressure on the wound and Nik begs her to save Liz, but she’s fading fast.

    Anna stops Lulu from leaving PCPD to go to Ben. She doesn’t want Lulu to pull Dante’s focus. Lulu understands but staying here is killing her. Anna knows what she feels like and tells her about the time Robin was kidnapped as a child. In order to control the fear she had faith that Robin was going to come home safe. And when she saw that little girl running toward her, it was a mix of relief and gratitude and pure love. Anna assures her she will hold her baby again. Later, Anna finds Nathan leading Madeline in and he tells her that she killed Nina. Nathan says he has the entire confession and Madeline says “You do?” Later, Liesl is put in a cell next to a weeping Madeline. They recognize each other. Meanwhile, Dante returns the station with Ben to an ecstatic Lulu.

    Nathan unwinds at home and Maxie is there.

    Nik demands to know from Britt if Liz is going to survive.

    Madeline tells Liesl it has been a long time.

    Dante gives Lulu her son to hold.

    Maxie has a man with her.

    Good grief, all this talking...put Madeline in shackles already!!! What kind of police work is this??? Then James/Nathan doesn't have to explain why he's arresting Maddie until tomorrow...what??????



    Sonny and Olivia were talking about Michael and what he's going through now. Sonny says, "Look at what I did to him,: and Olivia doesn't even question what he meant...so much for her psychic prowess.



    Frau Doktor shoots Liz and Britt works on her wound. Whoa...I sure hope that she remembers her Hippocratic Oath above all else. Nik looks like he's about to have a come-apart.



    Franco figured it out...oh oh. Will this finally get Carly off her tail and dig into Ava's vile shenanigans?


    Frau Doktor and Maddie are seeing each other across the cells. Hmmmm, so what secrets will they divulge, as it is apparent that they know each other?


    Maxie!

    OK…Nathan/James your mother said she was trying to get rid of the baby. You in turn ask what do you mean was she pregnant??? lol priceless

    Carly, you and your lies. They flow so easy for you when it comes to Sonny. Well Sonny are you about to go into your downward spiral? Now would be a good time for Olivia to start back having some of her premonitions

    OK..Franco you figured that out fast!!!lol

    Poor little Ben, look like he wanted to get away..lol

    The hotel room scene fell flat to me. Nathan was just standing around like a bump on a log..maybe he needed to take off his shirt. Madeline…ummmm I don’t know who was worst you or Bobbie with those crying scenes…yuck

    Anna and Lulu scenes were good.

    So Liz is losing a lot of blood???? Where is it??? There was more blood when Heather kidnapped Carly

    Is there anybody Dr. O doesn’t know???

    Good show today!

    Liz shot! OY VEY! And Britt is there to help, after returning Ben to Dante's arms.

    Franco, shut up and mind your own business.

    Nic was a bit self righteous today and I do like Nic.

    Poor , poor tormented Sonny.
    BTW: MB has a movie that he did that is about to be released!

    DuchessI: Really good post on yesterdays page 12.
    You are so right.

    ladysmom and lovesdogs: I agree with both of you about how foolish and cheap Alexis is looking/acting. Looks like not much has changed since the back seat of julian's car.

    Anna was sweet today. She's a great crier....

    How could I forget? MAXIE'S BACK!!!! One of my favorite characters .

    Hey Aussie, Liz is "fading fast"...BWAHAHA!Oh, please behave!We all know that Liz will prove thru.I just love the blabber mouth criminal.Madeline & Dr O are a bunch of chatter mouths.Oh, and of course Carly blabs to Franco that Sonny actually killed AJ. I'm sure that he will keep this secret (yeah right).

    Posted by maja at Tuesday, April 08 2014 12:58 PM

    oops meant to say Liz will pull thru.

    When Dr. O. said Britta had committed no crime, as "embryo's" have no value, I swear I heard the word "oreos".

    Posted by ransomha at Tuesday, April 08 2014 01:08 PM

    bayou: I really never got that embryo/oreo thing.....

    Olivia was right. Morgan was right. When it comes to Sonny, Michael is the end all and be all with him. Is it because he has his name? Is it because Michael is the only kid who was raised by him? Is it because Michael is the only kid that puts up with him?

    Posted by jumps at Tuesday, April 08 2014 01:13 PM

    Thrilled that Franco knows the truth about Sonny. This means there is one more person to be overheard by someone who will in turn tell Michael. Then Michael can tell Sonny to go {blah blah blah blah} himself and stay the heck away from him.
