    And Down She Goes.

    Friday, April 24 2009
    Claudia goes down the reasons why her baby isn't Ric's, Carly goes down when she sees Jason lying unconscious and Robin accidentally pushes Emma in her stroller down the stairs.


    As Patrick and Robin talk at GH, Liz loses her grip on a wheelchair and it comes flying down the stairs toward them. Epiphany tells them all that they'd better get used to the new layout and makes everyone get back to work. Patrick has a surgery to get to but he needs to go pick up Emma for her well-baby visit. Robin insists that she can do it and promises to meet him with her later.



    "The test confirms that you have ZBT," Kelly tells Carly over the phone. She lists all of the problems that could result and tells her to come see her right away. After Carly hangs up, Jax asks why she went pale? Carly blames it on hormones and leaves it at that. She tells him that she needs to go to GH to wait for Michael to arrive and he tells her to take all the time that she needs.



    Sonny has just arrived home and found Ric cornering Claudia by the bar. Seeing him, Claudia informs Ric that she and Sonny weren't planning a baby but they are committed to it. Ric turns around and Sonny asks him why he has such a smug look on his face. Next he asks Claudia why she's so calmly talking to the guy who is accusing her of something. Not wanting to hear either of their excuses, he challenges Ric to prove that he didn't set Claudia up for something he did. Ric simply congratulates them on the blessed event but warns his brother not to turn his back on Claudia.



    Over at Kelly's, Mike pours Nik a cup of coffee and gently reminds him that Rebecca is her own person. Nik doesn't deny it. When she walks in Nik jumps up and apologizes for accusing her of being involved with Helena. Rebecca makes a snide remark and says that she needs to go meet his grandmother so they can put together 'phase 2' of their evil plan. She calms down and thanks him for his support during her cancer scare, but their relationship is more trouble than it's worth. She turns down his invitation to dinner and goes upstairs.



    Liz comes in and Nik fills her in on what's been going on regarding Helena and Rebecca. When Lucky comes in and sees the two of them together he assumes that they're trying to keep him from taking Rebecca out tonight. The guys bicker and Liz makes them sit and calm down together. As she tries to get them to keep Rebecca in perspective, she comes down and sits smack in the middle of 'Emily's chair'. She and Liz get into it, but Lucky stands up and says that he's ready to let go of the past!



    Alexis rushes to the car garage where she finds an unconscious Jerry and Jason next to the burning car. She calls 911 right away. After the paramedics come, she calls Jax and then Mac and tells them both to meet her at the hospital.



    When Jax meets up with Alexis at GH, she fills him in on Jason and Jerry's status and all Jax cares about is keeping Carly calm when she hears about Jason. Alexis advises him to tell her but wait a couple of hours to see if Jason wakes up. He goes in to see Jerry and talks to him although he's still unconscious. He tells Jerry that his wife is pregnant and if she finds out what his big brother did to her son she could lose the baby. "If there was a plug to pull, I'd pull it!" he says before leaving. Jerry opens his eyes after he's gone. A while later when Jax goes to check on him, he's gone.



    Elsewhere in the hospital, Kelly is giving Carly a dire warning. "The only way to guarantee your safety is termination," she says. Carly says that is out of the question and asks what else she can do. Kelly says there's a one in two chance that she'll develop a serious clot or an embolism. Carly sees that as a 50% chance that she and the baby will be just fine. It is Kelly's strong opinion that she tell her husband, but Carly says that she'll get a new doctor who will help her if she won't. Kelly promises to help as best she can, but warns Carly to avoid stress. When Carly steps into the hallway, Epiphany tells her about Jason's accident.



    Carly rushes to Jason's bedside and Monica tries to get her to leave. Jax hears the noise and comes in just in time to see Carly collapse.



    Sonny is meeting with Dr. Hensen regarding the potential surgery for Michael. She tells him that he has 6-10% chance of waking up, but without the procedure there's no chance that his son will ever come around. She says that they'll need about three weeks to prep him before they can do it and that this is his best chance. Sonny tries to absorb it all and then goes to sit with Michael. He takes his boy's hand and asks for a sign of what to do.



    Ric pays Claudia yet another visit. He finds her looking at baby magazines and teases her about nesting already. She promises to wear a veil to his funeral so that no one sees her smile and he comes back with, "Is that anyway to talk to the father of your child?" She insists that it's Sonny's, but he says that there's no way he'll let her pass it off as Sonny's.



    Robin took Emma to see the pediatrician alone since Patrick had patients to deal with. Kelly runs into them and coos over how cute Emma is. Robin is in a good mood and brags that she is doing it all by herself because she's not taking her meds. Kelly calls that very careless! Robin doesn't appreciate being treated like a child and tries to walk away. Instead she ends up pushing Emma's stroller down the staircase.


    Next on General Hospital:

    Patrick rescues Emma before she comes crashing down the hospital stairs.

    Patrick takes drastic measures after he finds out that Robin isn't taking her meds.

    Carly talks to Jason about her health risk and Jax overhears.

    Jax tells her that he wants her to terminate, but she won't hear of it.

    Dr. Hensen tells Sonny that if Michael is going to have the surgery, it needs to be ASAP.

    Olivia tells Claudia her theory on Claudia's convenient pregnancy.

    Claudia worries that her hit on Jerry will be traced back to her.

    Ric said: "Is that anyway to talk to the father of your child?" You know he's not totally stupid. Let's play soaps favorite game MAMA!, WHO'S MY DADDY!

    First look at Mike. Well.

    You know soap women seem so strong until they find out there's a baby on board. Then they start dropping like flies.

    I think that, this is Sonny's baby, and not Rick's. Yet test can be done, Clauda you better get, on the case.

    Haven't seen this episode yet but can only envision Liz pushing a wheel chair down the stairs...why? Wouldn't you use the elevator? I guess TPTB used that effect to illustrate what it would look like when Emma came tumbling down when Robin bumped her stroller. How many times is this woman going to endanger her child's life w/o realizing she has an illness or before Patrick says enough is enough? Perfect Robin you ain't perfect any more - seek help before you kill your baby!

    All I can say about Jerry is that he only has about 4 more of his 9 lives left.

    Just a thought about Ethan's parentage - could he be Mac's son? TPTB is giving us food for thought that his father is either Luke's or Robert's but maybe Mac had a secret liason with Holly also.

    Ric you are pressing your luck to the limits....you may be on Claudia's near hit list next. Maybe she'll finally get a "hit" right.

    The Nicolas/Rebecca/Lucky s/l is stupid and a little sad. Nicolas is showing his desperation and Lucky is showing that he has no scruples hitting on someone his brother has a thing for and Rebecca is playing them both one against the other. It definetely smells like Helena's stench is in the wind when it comes to Rebecca - Helena would want to play brother against brother the way she did her two sons.

    Where is Spencer?

    What the heck is amatter with Robin?Why don't she realize that the pills are to help her.She is so bullheaded.She needs help.Before Emma ends up getting hurt.Why Patrick lets her get away with whats she's doing is only hurting Emma .And I think Patrick is putting blinders so he dont see whats happening.Why no one has called child protective services at?Or is everyone afraid to call?In real life if someone saw what was going on they would have been called.And theres no way she's going to be able to handle it her self.And Claudia and Sonny make the perfect pair.And Ric needs to keep his nose out of there busness.

    Okay, I though Sam was suppose to find Jason in the expolosion and hlep him.

    WOW Nik, half the time you act like a grade school kid with his first crush. At other times, you look like you are turning into a stalker again. Rebecca is playing you against your brother and I too can see Helena's hand in this. Really wish he would start acting like Prince Nikolas again.

    Tyoical Robin today. Passing herself off as little miss perfect again. With her pushing Emma's stroller down the stairs and Patrick saving his daughter, this s/l can't end soon enough for me. Finally, he takes the blinders off and I am also glad he finds out she has not been taking the meds. He needs to do something drastic to save Emma.

    I fully expect Ric to be next on Claudia's hit list. He should be going to Sonny and telling him about their history. Time for a paternity test.

    I feel sorry for Jax and Carly. They both want this baby so badly. What a decision to have to make.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think the sets were really dark today. In one scene, Claudia looked really washed out.

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

    Hi everyone..great show today...Well looks like Robin will finally get the much needed help as she will go on holidays for 3 weeks, guess this is when she goes in a treatment center. How many times will Liz and Patrick take the kids to the park during this time or on other playdates. I did hear Nik and Liz might heat up...might be something to explore...
    I sure hope Liz once she finds out about Jason goes to see him..I do want to see those 2 at least be in scenes together..Writers make my day please.
    Who picks out baby things just when you find out your with baby? Plenty of time dear Claudia... Sonny is to busy with his other kids right night to sit and hold Claudia's hand she best bring Johnny over.
    As for Carly I bet you she will risk her life to try to have this much wanted baby. I do like her.
    The new Micheal..no comment just yet..I hear we will not see that cute Morgan anymore as they are recasting making him now a 12 year old.
    Have a great weekend my friends.

    I could never accuse Sonny of being a rock scientist.

    Monica said it about Jason – he cheats death all the time. He will be ok.

    I am so over the Michael story line. The writers have dragged it on for far too long for me to care about anyone involved. I find that I feel sorry for Ric and for once wish something would work out for him. It seems almost all of PC knows about the secret. As for Claudia, Sonny or her need for power isn’t worth all this drama. Claudia should call her Uncle Ruddy and take back the Z empire.

    I am trying to find some ounce of compassion for Jax & Carly but no such luck.
    Maybe it’s because I have a feeling they won’t last and Carly will return to Sonny.

    I am intrigued about Helena and the painting. I also find that Ethan & Lulu are interesting to watch. I am looking forward to seeing Holly again.

    I'm so sick of the writers of GH,with the michael story line. Come on you guys!!! Sonny,Jason, and Carly needs to find out that Claudie is the one who set everything in motion. And it's not Sonny baby, it should be Rick. The writers or trying to play the same story line, when Sonny was with Lilly. But Lilly was never like claudia who just wants power. Please kill Claudia off know!!! And for Jaxs,I like him but his charactor his so self rightous, know the foot is on the other side and he is keeping such an important thing from Carly...She needs to know. And please put Sonny and Carly back together!!!!
