    Carly keeps Jax from watching the DVD, Ric threatens Claudia, Jason goes along with the FBI and Maxie begs Spinelli to work faster.

    Jax and Carly play around while making love. She grabs a champagne bottle and they wrestle for control of it. Jax wins and kisses her; they make love. After, Jax picks up the package and thinks he recognizes the package but can't place the design. He decides to watch whatever is on the DVD! Carly grabs it, saying she doesn't care what is on it but Jax pushes the issue so Carly drops her sheet to stand naked before him. He drops the DVD! They make love again and then start planning a trip to Australia with their family. Carly thanks him for loving her and goes to the bathroom. Jax looks at the DVD again and becomes curious. He puts it in the player and watches as Jerry comes on the screen!

    Agent Rayner orders Jason to wear the wire around Sonny but Jason refuses. Rayner says if he doesn't Spinelli will be arrested and says he can't survive jail – but Sonny can! Jason leaves. Sam walks in and demands to know why Rayner is sandbagging her PI license! Rayner pressures her, saying if she helps solve the Spinelli and Sonny situations she'll get her license! Sam angrily grabs Rayner's badge and says he is as bad as the mobsters he puts in jail and storms out. She takes his badge with her.

    At the condo Jason tells Diane about Rayner's 'deal'. He says he can't reach Spinelli or Sonny. Diane asks about the evidence and Jason tells her about Spinelli's virus. Diane gets very worried. Rayner arrives and puts the wire on Jason. He tells Jason that no one will find the wire unless the guards frisk him. He leaves, telling Jason the agents will be around the corner.

    At the house Mac questions Patrick and Maxie about Robin but neither knows where she might have gone. Patrick keeps pushing Mac to admit that Robin has psychological problems but Mac refuses. Maxie steps in and defends Patrick. Neither Mac nor Patrick will back down so, frustrated, Maxie storms out. Patrick and Mac argue about who should go after Robin. Patrick begs Mac to help him present a united front for Emma's sake. Mac gets a call from the station and Patrick demands to know where Robin is. Mac sends him after Robin.

    At the mansion Claudia asks if she should move out; Sonny says he isn't asking for a divorce and says their marriage is working for him. Sonny gives Max instructions about the night's security while Claudia gives the bartenders their instructions. She brings up John and he asks what she isn't telling him! Claudia says Johnny is only worried about her because he has always been worried about her; she says she feels the same about him. This doesn't make Sonny feel better. He says he wants her loyalty and honesty and offers his loyalty and honesty in return. Claudia points out that he made up with Jason despite Jason's disloyalty but Sonny won't talk about that. She tries to put barriers between Sonny and Jason, saying Jason can't be trusted. She goes to change and at the top of the stairs asks if Sonny will ever trust her. He says he might but watches her closely when she turns her back. Ric arrives and drinks with Sonny. They chat about jobs and Sonny hints that he might give Ric a job in the organization if Ric agrees to follow orders. Diane and Max arrive. Max chases Diane, trying to search her for weapons. She warns Max to be very careful tonight, especially around Jason. "Don't say much to anyone, especially Jason," she warns. Jason arrives and Max tries to frisk him but Sonny stops Max!

    Ric goes to Claudia's room. She tells him to get out but he won't go. He shows her the DVD – which is just like the DVD that Jax found!

    In the bar Robin accepts a date from the strange man. They decide to see a movie. After the movie they return to the bar, disagreeing about the movie. Robin sides with the woman in the movie who didn't want a husband and a family but the guy sides with the husband and family. They dissect the movie and both wonder what would have made the woman in the movie happy.

    Winifred and Spinelli are planning their next move at Maxie's when she returns home and warns them that they both need to stop planning and take action – by upgrading Winifred's credentials now. Winifred agrees with Maxie but Spinelli has doubts; he asks her to leave. Spinelli says he is going to prove his worthiness but this only worries Maxie more. She points out that Jason and Sam are in jeopardy, too; Spinelli won't change his mind. He takes her hand as Winifred returns, saying they have to go. Maxie kisses Spinelli! He and Winifred leave.

    Next on General Hospital:

    Ric has Claudia under his thumb.

    Patrick gets an eyeful when he tracks down Robin.

    Sam puts herself on the line to help Spinelli.

    I can't believe Jason would wear a wire to bring back evidence against Sonny even if it is to help an ungrateful, can't follow instructions Spinelli. Diane appeared to be giving Max a heads up - did he get the hint? Jason will find some way to alert Sonny not to say anything that could incrimate himself or the other 5 familiy heads.

    Robin needs some serious help - so does Mac. Denial could cause someone their life.

    Hello everyone I am new to the message boards. I have not watched the show yet today, but read the recap and i am so happy for Carly and Jax... She deserves to be happy!!!

    I am getting tired of the Winifred and Spinelli s/l enough already..

    Jason idk who he has turned into?!!! i understand he is in tough spot between Sonny and Spinelli but he needs to toughin up... jason is my favorite person on the show. I hope they pair him back up with Sam soon...

    Sonny and Claudia are hot together. I know its wrong because she is responsible for Michael's shooting, but the scenes with these two are hot...

    As far as Rick goes poor thing he is going to die from trying to be just like Sonny, he always wants what Sonny has or had, yet is always begging for that brotherly relationship he so "deserves" whatever...

    Poor Robin I hope she gets the help she needs and her Patrick get back on track..

    That's all for now I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

    Could today's show have dragged on any slower than it did today? Honestly, did we have to watch Jax put on his bathrobe? Geez, I really wanted to watch him watch the video.
    And what is up with Maxie? Does she have a split personality do you think? She's one way with Johnny and another way with Spinelli?
    And what was that with Sam in Rayner's office. I thought she threw the tag onto the desk. I didn't see her walk out with anything. Yet there she was holding.....What? Holding the tag?
    Oh boy, a confusing day today.

    Also, how hilarious was that when Jason threw the vase. It didn't go very far especially for a man with his strength.

    And finally, best part of today's show for me was when Ric exposed the DVD to Claudia.

    I felt sad watching Robin kissing the carpender. She is leading this poor guy on and will break Patrics heart when he walks in on them. Gonna take a real big man to get over that betrayal and get that visual out of his mind. Too bad Mac doesn't get to see it. In real life...Jax would have got up stark naked to get the CD. Oh well....Carly looked so pretty. She has great hair and face..its just her cloths I don't like. Like a wedding dress cut down to her belly button...tacky! Don't know what my Jason has up his sleeve but, i'm not ready to loose faith in him. Maxie looked great like always. Wish my problem was being too skinny! She must have hair extensions. HAPPT SPRING!!!

    This whole Spin s/l just gets more ridiculous. First he was a "blues brother" and now he is an army general???? The more TPTB drag this out and try to change him, the worse it gets. His need to play hero and save Jason or whoever is becoming very tiresome. As I have said before, Spin and his cyberspeak and cluelessnees was cute when he first started. And now we have Winnie the Pooh joining him. Enough already!

    Jason needs to find a way to take Rayner down. Did he honestly think Rayner would be done with him and not keep on threatening him with Spinelli? Frankly, maybe it is time for Jason to say no and let Spin take his lumps. Then maybe he would get a clue.

    Mac was still acting like a jerk today but at least he saw the light. Gee, does he actually think Robin would not put on a show for him regarding Emma? She has for everyone else, including Patrick, so he would not be any different. It's too bad Mac is not there with Patrick to get an eyeful of her.

    I agree with the poster that said once Carly finds out about the DVD and that Jax knew what was on it, that it will be the end of them. Way too many secrets floating around.

    Loved seeing Max and Diane today. Not enough of them.

    Hi aussie, cynic, fire, heart, been, rans, gen, and anyone I missed. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    I hope Robin doesn't forget that she has aids. Judging from the previews for Monday, it looks like Robin and that guy must have been about to get busy.
