    Boom! Week Over!

    Friday, January 11 2008
    Skye busts Luke out, Jake is locked inside a burning house, and GH's policy of not helping the uninsured just might explode in its face.


    Skye goes to the hospital because she wants to say goodbye to Edward and Monica. Then, she runs into Jax and says her goodbye to him. He asks why she's leaving. She comes right out and says that she was on the brink of another disastrous relationship and explains that Ric has even more baggage than she does and a relationship with him would've been pretty crowded. She tells Jax that she would feel better leaving him if he knew he was okay. Jax assures her that he and Carly are fine, but Skye doesn't believe that's possible with Carly.



    Elizabeth has her hands full with Cameron today. He has played with matches and then throws them on the floor. Liz calmly tells him to go outside but don't slam the door because it locks. He slams it. As Liz lets him back in, Lucky arrives and says that he's come to talk about Jake. Liz puts the boys down for a nap so they can talk. Lucky says that the only thing that matters is what's best for Jake. He goes on to say that in a way, he, her, Sam and Jason all made Jake and they all need to find a way to protect him. He says that he'd like to stick to the story that Jake is his and Liz asks what about Sam? Lucky says that Sam can't stop herself sometimes, but she'd never do anything to hurt a child. He realizes that this is something that Jason needs to agree to and he doesn't expect an answer right away. As he leaves, Lucky says that he'll be on a stakeout for a couple nights, but can check messages. "Don't take this the wrong way, but I hope that Jake ends up with more of you than of Jason," Lucky tells her on the way out the door.



    Cassius serves Luke his last hospital meal and they talk about his release today. He tells Cassius that his home is the highway, but Tracy shows up and tells him that his home is the Quartermaine mansion. She proceeds to tell him that he'll exist on no booze, no sex, three servings of fruit and YOGA until the doctor says otherwise. Luke says that he's in hell and is happy to see that Skye has come to rescue him.



    "Why did you tell Carly about Jake?" Jason insists when he finds Sam on the waterfront. She hesitates for a minute and then gives him an honest answer. She tells him that he hurt her and now they are even. Jason sees it differently because Carly will unleash a world of trouble on him now.



    Joe (the mechanic) rushes into the hospital with his pregnant wife. She's only six months along, but she's very sick. Nadine takes Joe's insurance card to start the paperwork. As Dr. Lee is working on Joe's wife, Miss Sneed shows up and says that his insurance isn't valid so he'll have to move her to the county hospital. Joe says that there must be a mistake and he'll work it out later. Sneed persists, much to the discomfort of Nadine and Kelly who are standing by, and Joe's wife insists that he help her up so they can go.



    Carly rushes into Sonny's office and tells him to get Diane started on a custody case for Jason. He tells her that Jake is none of her business. She guesses that he's in a foul mood because Kate left him again. Sonny tells her that Kate is off limits to her. Carly says now that Kate's out of the way, they can focus on Jason. She tells Sonny to tell Jason how crazy it is to let Lucky be Jake's father! Just then, Jason shows up. He asks her to do as he asks for once. "If you want to get maternal, go have a kid with Jax!" he yells and Carly takes off with her feelings hurt.



    Tracy reluctantly gives Luke and Skye some privacy and Skye tells him of her plan to start over somewhere green. Luke jokes that she's going to live in a money vault and then they laugh over some of their adventures together. Luke asks her if she thinks it's good to keep an endangered species in a cage and when she seems confused, he says he has a favor to ask of her. Later, Edward finds Skye on her way out and asks her to tell Lila Rae about her namesake when she gets older. Skye seems in a rush and says she hates goodbyes. As she gets on the elevator, Luke (dressed as a limo driver) is there with her!



    Sam runs into Lucky on the waterfront. She apologizes for telling Carly about Jake and Lucky accuses her of getting off on all the chaos that she's caused. He says that she wants everyone to pay for the fact that she can't have kids and he doesn't like that about her or want to be a part of it. He admits, however, that he is messed up enough to understand her motives. He says that he was hooked on pills, but she's hooked on hurting people in exchange for the hurt she has felt. But he got help and she hasn't. Sam says that she doesn't want to be like this, and Lucky tells her to do something about it. He says that he doesn't want danger near his boys and that includes from her. "We could be heading somewhere," he tells her, but it can't be about what they've done, rather what they do from here on out.



    Jax runs into Carly as she rushes down the street. He asks her for some quality time tonight and she practically pushes him away. She says that she doesn't have time for hearts and flowers tonight. Jax says that she is so caught up with Jason that she can't even see that their marriage is in trouble. He asks when it ends with Jason and she says, "When he's happy!" and then rushes off.



    In Manhattan, Kate is hard at work. Clarisse tells her that she will be back at the helm any time now and then off to Paris for a month. Kate doesn't look as happy as you might think at the thought of it. Soon there's a knock on her door and when she opens it, Sonny tells her that it's been difficult getting her off of his mind. Now THAT makes Kate happy.



    Back at Liz's house, she puts her little angle down for "night night." Downstairs, Cam has found the matches and strikes one. As Liz comes down the stairs, he throws it in the trash can to hide it from her, and then runs out the door. She chases him out the door and it closes behind them. After she catches him, they return to the porch and see flames through the window. She pounds on the door but can't get in.



    Outside of the hospital, Luke thanks "Blaze" for setting him free and then tells her what a touch of class she has been for this town. She says that she's horrible at goodbyes. He asks if she'll ever come back and she says that she'll have to if Tracy isn't good to him.



    Inside at the nurses' desk, Mayor Floyd is brought in on a stretcher after hurting himself in a skateboard accident. Edward, Monica and Epiphany are rushing around to get him some help and that's when Joe and his wife return. Joe informs them that this time he's brought his insurance with him. He opens his coat to reveal that a bomb is strapped to his waist.


    Next on General Hospital:

    Joe threatens to blow the entire hospital away.

    Liz smashes a window to get into the house.

    Jason is going to look into Anthony Zacchara's medical and mental state.

    Gosh, a lot of great moments here. And most of them involved Skye in my opinion! I also loved Lucky today - he's much wiser than we give him credit for lately, at least.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    ALMOST felt sorry for Carley today. She's like a woman out of control. It's like she can't stop her self. She hears the words but it doen't compute. JASON DOES NOT WANT YOUR HELP!!!And poor Jax. He should leave while he has a bit of dignity left only I think he is a good role model for Carley's kids. I really think if Jason said the words to Liz that he wants to be a full time dad, she would work with it. Also...say what you want about Liz...the guys a crazy for her. Jason...Lucky...Ric....she's gotta have something.

    Hi!!!!!
    Carly. Carly. Carly.
    Your going to test poor Jax to the limit.
    What I love about Carly is the word hypocrite doesn't even cover what she is.
    Carly not only messed A.J. over about Michael, having Sonny and Jason threaten him and lie to him. Keeping A.J. and the Q.'s away from Michael for years.
    But-- she also helped Jax lie and keep Spencer away from Nikolas.
    How soon we forget!!!!
    It's so funny. I mean I'm LOLing how when Carly does it in her scary scary mind she's justified but, anyone else does it and OMG.
    LOL!!!!!!!!
    That's one heck of a double standard.
    Am I wrong???? Woweeeeee!!!!!!

    I liked Ucky's talk with Sam that was very very well done.
    He gave Sam a lot to think about. A lot.
    It was well done.
    You know I have a friend who had an infant and a toddler-- my hat is off to any woman who has done this whether they are single or married and hubby works. My hat is off to you....
    My friends son Isa got a little friend who liked matches a bit too much needless to say they almost burned down the back shed. Thank goodness my friend was able to get the fire out. Two little boys with matches don't mix. She didn't for one minute think she needed to pat down the kids before they went out back to play.
    Anyway, I loved Skye and Luke's goodbye.
    That was cool.
    I'm sad to see Skye go.
    I loved her on all three of ABC's soaps but, mainly GH.

    I love Sonny and Kate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    WooooooooooooooooHooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!


    Thank you all again.
    For the wuv and support.....
    It means a lot.
    Thank you for the prayers and lovely messages.
    Take care....

    I hope this posts.

    Liason Rock ON No Matter What OR Who!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I fill in the rest of what Sam was trying to tell Jason about Elizabeth ...

    "She doesn't understand you, she doesn't understand your life, she doesn't know how to stand by you for the man that you are ... BUT ME... I DO... I WAS IN IT AND GAVE YOU EVERYTHING, I CAN'T HAVE CHILDREN BECAUSE OF YOU, YOU PUSHED ME AWAY, YOU HURT ME, YES I WATCHED YOUR KID GET KIDNAPPED AND HIRED MEN WITH GUNS TO THREATEN HIM, BUT IT'S ALL BECAUSE I STILL LOVE YOU, I STILL WANT YOU, I NEED YOU!!!"

    How did I do ladies??? It's like yada yada yada, some old B.S. just a different day.

    seems like a good eppy... finally we see some glimpses of the old Lucky. Anyway, haven't seen the show yet... will comment in detail once i get home after work.

    GO SONNY! So LOVIN Sonny today!!

    JASON .. you scored points with me today when you told Carly "If you want to get maternal, go have a kid with Jax!" HOWEVER, we need much much more of that with Sam as well.

    When is Sam ever going to be even about this whole thing? With her I guess it's NEVER over. I guess that was in Jason's answer when he said "are we?"

    Parents always wants what's best for their children and that involves protecting them at all cost.However there are time when things are going to happen no matter how much you try to shield them. I think Jason and Liz needs to stop sneaking around and come out with their relationship. Liz needs to prove how much she luvs Jason and stop hiding. As much as i luv those two together they are allowing the situation to get out of hand. Jason is obviously in pain because he can't claim his son Liz needs to find a way to help him with this . Jason needs to claim his son and be a family with Liz and the boys.Carly needs to act like a friend and bout out of Jason's affair if she can't support him when he needs it she is not his friend.

    Wow, Lucky was really good today. Not one moment did he get on my nerves & he actually didn't whine about himself. Now I can get use to that Lucky but it probably will not last.

    Carly, Carly, Carly, SHADDUP ALREADY! Ok I do like her but come on girl, Sonny told you to mind your own beeswax & take care of your own life. Then Jason told you to mind your own beeswax & go have a baby w/ your husband. Then your husband shows up w/ flowers & wants to talk to you & you CAN'T? WTF, the girl is gonna go back to Shadybrook if she doesn't slow her roll.

    It was sad to watch Skye leave, I loved her last scene w/ Luke & I'm glad it was w/ him instead of Ric.

    Sapphire ITA! I love Kate & Sonny, & she opened a little too wide for that kiss! I'm jealous but I love to see people who want to be together actually go for it.

    Good episode today. I am also sorry to see Skye leave. I really liked her character. Unfortuntly the writers couldnt find anything to do with it. I loved Lukes words to her. I would rather see him again with her than Tracey. She has always annoyed me. On to Carly!! Carly Carly Carly..You are going to lose a good man over medling with something that has nothing to do with you. I really hope Jax does leave her. The whole thing with the hospital policy is unfair. I would probably go to extremes too!! Maybe not with a bomb but I would leave an impression. Sonny and Kate Blah blah. Glad we didnt have to sit through another screaming Lulu day. As for Liz, Jason will save the day!! Maybe the house will be unlivable and she will have to move in with Jason. A girl can dream cant she! I also liked Lucky today. He was actually making sense. Thats all for now ladies. Enjoy your weekend.

    Lucky .. WTF? Where have you been? Who are you? I was thinking, am I even watching the same show. Did he fall on Monday and bump his head, cause he's been good this week. All I can say, is that I am in shock right now!!! Next week, I'm sure the old Lucky will be back. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!!!
