    Michael Wakes Up!

    Friday, May 15 2009
    Carly agrees to go home, Lulu visits Michael, Luke gets a surprise visitor, Alexis catches Rebecca and Nikolas again and Jason warns Claudia.


    On the jet back to Port Charles, Luke, Tracy and Ethan play cards. In spite of Tracy, Luke is determined to find Holly to determine if Ethan is their child. Tracy suggests they play 21 – the winner asks questions, the loser answers and the winner deals. Ethan wins the first round and asks why Tracy hates him. Tracy doesn’t hate him, she just doesn’t trust him. Luke accuses her of fixing the DNA test, but Tracy continues to deny it. Next round: Tracy asks why Luke picked that dive in Singapore and Luke answers it was sentimental to him.



    Jason wonders why Ric is at Sonny’s and he explains he came to drop off some papers. Jason thinks Ric is around so much because he and Claudia are working together. Jason says Sonny should know how much time they spend together and then Claudia gets a cramp. Ric helps her to the couch, as Jason looks at them and rolls his eyes. Jason notes Ric’s concern and wonders if he plans to steal Claudia’s baby like he tried with Carly. Claudia and Jason demand Ric leave and he reluctantly does so.



    Claudia tells Jason Ric is becoming a real problem. Jason wonders why and Claudia calls Ric insane thinking maybe Ric is trying to take the baby away from Sonny. Maybe Ric is the one who put the hit on Sonny and maybe even pulled the trigger. Jason spits out that she doesn’t get to talk about Michael – not after what she’s done. Jason knows she is responsible for Michael’s condition and at some point she will pay. Jason throws out accusations and Claudia tells him if he cares about Sonny at all, he will keep his accusations to himself.


    At the hospital, Jax confides in Olivia and asks her what she would need to hear if it was her son laying in that bed. Olivia offers some insightful advice and Jax asks her to talk with Carly because she might listen to a woman with kids herself.

    Carly insists to Sonny that Michael will wake up. She gets upset and starts to faint. Sonny catches her and tells her she needs to take care of herself. Carly insists it wasn’t serious and it would be worse if she was home freaking out. Jax and Olivia come to the room and Jax says Olivia might be a good person to talk to. Carly doesn’t care what anyone says – she’s not giving up on her son. Olivia urges Carly to go home and get some rest, but she won’t budge. Sonny isn’t giving up, but he doesn’t think Michael will wake up. Sonny gets upset and leaves and Carly tells Olivia and Jax they can leave too. Olivia obliges, but Jax won’t let Carly push him away. He loves her and they are in this together, for better or worse.

    Lulu comes to the Haunted Star looking for Luke, but finds Johnny instead. They have some tense words and Johnny leaves, but not before telling her about Michael’s operation.

    Edward and Monica discuss Michael and she tells him the odds were against the boy and she doesn’t think Michael will wake up, as Rebecca works nearby and overhears. Monica gets called away and Rebecca asks if she can help Edward. He says it’s just a terrible shock to know that Michael might not wake up and Rebecca hugs him. Edward recounts Michael’s history and how the adults failed him. He bemoans the fact that the Q’s weren’t a positive influence on him and Rebecca understands regret. She tries to reassure him, as Nikolas walks up and overhears their conversation. Rebecca tells Edward if there is anything she can do for him to let her know. He tells her it’s comforting because talking to her is like having Emily there when he needs her the most.


    Sonny goes to the chapel and prays for Carly. He doesn’t want her to pay for his mistakes, noting that Michael already has. Olivia walks in and starts talking about when they were kids and how he could always be found in church. She says parents want to give their kids the best life they can and will sacrifice anything for that to happen. She tells him everyone prayed for him when he was a kid and some of them still do. Sonny tells her it’s too late for him, so she should pray for Michael instead. Sonny blames himself for bringing another kid into the world and Olivia blames Claudia for that. Sonny won’t do what he did to Michael to this kid. Olivia tells him to do better.


    Jax tells Carly she needs to take care of herself and thinks maybe something will work for Michael down the line. Carly thinks this was his only chance, but Jax says this may be their only chance for a life together. He asks her to accept the truth and that Michael wouldn’t want her to risk her life or the baby’s for him. Carly agrees to come home and kisses Michael and tells him she loves him before she leaves.


    Nikolas and Rebecca go back to Wyndemere and while they kiss, Alexis walks in. She lashes out at Nikolas and tells him to just sign everything he owns over to Helena right now. Rebecca wonders what it will take to convince her she’s not working for Helena. Alexis wants her to start by explaining why she was in Greece.



    Jax and Carly go home, but everything reminds her of Michael. She really thought he would wake up, but promises Jax she will take care of herself. Carly recalls this was the last place she saw Michael and how she yelled at him. She cries as she says she promised Michael she would be there when he wakes up. Jax goes to make her something to eat and when he comes back, Carly collapses into his arms after crying over a photo of Michael.



    Lulu goes to see Michael and notes how much he has grown. She’s sorry she hasn’t seen him until now and grabs his hand. Michael’s hand twitches and when Lulu looks up, she sees his eyes open. Lulu wants to get him a nurse, but Michael asks her not to leave him and asks what happened to him.



    Back at the Haunted Star, Luke pours himself a drink and Holly comes in saying they have a lot to celebrate, namely their blessed event.



    Sonny walks in as Claudia and Jason argue and asks what’s going on.


    Next on General Hospital:

    Carly gets the news she’s been praying for.

    Ethan drops a bomb on Lulu.

    Rebecca makes a deal with Alexis.

    Carly was amazing today!! Lulu should not have been the one to be there when Michael work up. That was bad writing and ruined what could have been an incredible moment.

    What an exciting show! Thank god for May sweeps-things are getting good around GH! I love Holly-so glad she's back! She ought to stir things up a bit!

    Great show today. I am so glad Michael woke up and Lulu was the first person to realize that. Everybody going to look so stupid next week for not believing Carly she was right. Claudia, Johnny, and Jerry on their way to that jail cell. Now that Jason knows the truth Michael's shooting he can tell Sonny or Carly any minute or he can wait until Jerry comes back when he get that last DVD and then send it to court and let the judges and lawyers find out. Claudia is a freaking hypocrite she know that she, her brother, Ian, and Jerry the one's responsible for Michael's shooting Jason not stupid she the one hired Ian Devlin and Jerry Jacks to put a hit on Sonny which the bullet hit's Michael instead, which the brother Johnny knew the whole time from the beginning when it all started when Michael was shot that day. He didn't tell Sonny, Jason, Carly, or nobody else but going to listen to your dumb sister what a jerk. Then Ian shot Michael by accident, and Jerry he was involved too and all of them were associated by Claudia stop lying you tramp. Then that tramp got the nerve to blame Ric for Michael's shooting and he wasn't even there when Michael got shot. I can't wait until the truth comes out.

    I think they should get rid of Claudia and Holly, need to bring back Brenda and Laura. Holly not very interesting. That would really heat things up if Brenda returns. You all keep saying she's coming back haven't happened. Luke and Tracey real boring who care if Ethan's his son. Please get rid of them already. Need to bring back Brenda and heat the story up again. Claudia fake and Holly even worse. It was bad enough you bought back Emily. Everytime someone dies on this show you bring them back as someone else, what's up with that. Try considering the consequences before you kill them off.

    Todays show was supposed to be so exciting..but for me it was very disappointing as why would the writers have Lulu the one beside the bed when Micheal woke up. I could see if she had been visiting him often but she even admited she never and how he had grown. What was to be the highlight of May Sweeps GH you blew it.

    i am so sick of the lady in black, walking around thinking she is all that and then some. she really think that jason cares what ric does to her, aside from the baby jason would not mind if ric take care of lady in black so he would not have to, i mean jason and sonny goes way back. i know this is a show but that lady look sonny right in the eyes and say she did nothing to micheal.

    I have been watching GH for a number of years and just found this site over a year ago.
    I have enjoyed reading the daily episodes, spoilers and comments. I just wanted to say that I am glad Michael awoke. I also want to congratulate the Emmy nomination to Maxie. I wasn’t surprised that Laura Wright wasn’t included in the nomination. I like Carly but for the last couple of years she has been involved in one tragedy after another. I feel for her pain but after awhile it becomes too much. Yes, she has experienced some hardships but like in life, you have to be strong and forge ahead. On the other hand, Claudia has shown a wide range of emotions. I can’t remember a character that I like one day, then I hate the next day. She reminds me of Sony, who is a loose cannon.
    One other thing that do not like is the way GH is trampling on Luke & Laura’s memory but scribing rubbish with Holly & Ethan. Please restore their memory by making Ethan, Robert’s son. That about sums up my thoughts. Thanks.

    Today's show was great, Rebecca cares for monica and edward I'm telling you rebecca is brainwashed emily being used by helena that scene was sweet. If this was all about getting nikolas she could've have slept with nikolas a week ago but she didn't she doesn't have to care about Quartermaine or Nikolas she could've slept with him a week no matter what name he called her in bed. But she care you can see that I say she's emily and doesn't know it. This is a interesting story

    Michael wake up was a bunch of hype all these promos this was it took to long I was over this before friday.

    I bet claudia's baby is ric

    This was a good show

    Olivia has got to stop living in the past. Enough already about the old neighborhood. She is like a broken record. I too was supried and disapointed that LuLu was there when Michael opened his eyes. Should have been his mother....who I guess he won't like anyway! I must say...I am thankful it wasn't Claudia! Claudia is a wreck. She is jumpy, nervous and going to go crazy before this baby is born . Everytime she is in a jam she gets tummy cramps. Go figure. As far as Holly and old timers returning, I"m not crazy about that. They always show up looking so strange.
