    Full Disclosure.

    Friday, May 22 2009
    Holly comes clean, Johnny puts Maxie on the spot and Michael makes his feelings known.

    At Nikolas’, Rebecca remembers that Elizabeth mentioned that the color of her shirt was Emily’s favorite. Nikolas isn't thinking about Emily – he’s thinking about how much he wants to take her clothes off. Rebecca reminds him of their deal with Alexis, who walks in and notices the color she’s wearing. Nikolas calls for the launch to take Alexis back to the mainland, but Alexis wants him to see that Rebecca is manipulating him. Rebecca in turn wants to know what Alexis dug up on her. Alexis informs them she is still investigating, but she thinks she’ll find something. Nikolas is insulted and asks her to start living her own life. Nikolas and Rebecca leave to go sailing and Alexis storms off.

    Carly listens as Michael tells Lulu he feels like people are viciously circling him, but his mother is the worst because she is so desperate for attention. Carly walks away as Lulu defends her. Michael thinks Carly is preoccupied with Jax and their new kid and wonders if he should live with the Q’s. Lulu shares her experience living with them and tells him he has parents who want him and would do anything for him.

    Carly sees Jason in the hospital lobby and cries that Michael hates her. Jason implores her to give him some space, but Carly doesn’t think now is the time to be absent. Carly agrees to back off, but she wants Jason to talk to her son and tell him what it was like when he was in a coma and how much she loves him. Jason thinks Michael needs to work through this on his own and believes he is lashing out at her because she is the one person who won’t abandon him. He needs her to stay strong because that is the best thing she can do for Michael right now. Jason has to leave, but he will come back and sit with Michael.

    At their house, Sonny tells Claudia he has a feeling Johnny is taking advantage of Olivia. Claudia doesn’t think her brother would sleep with her, but Sonny assures her it’s true. They debate over who took advantage of who and Mike comes in. He tells Sonny about Edward wanting Michael to live with him, as Claudia leaves the room looking worried.

    An angry Lucky grills Holly about Ethan. They discuss the situation and Lucky wonders if she cares that she is destroying his family.

    An uncomfortable Ethan stands by as Tracy asks Luke if he is leaving her for Holly. Luke loves Tracy, but he doesn’t know what he will do next. Tracy tells Ethan both their futures hinge on what happened in Singapore all those years ago. Tracy warns Luke not to come back to her if he goes off with Holly. Ethan adamantly suggests Luke stick with Tracy instead of going off with a woman he can’t trust.

    Sonny tells Mike about Olivia and Johnny. Mike doesn’t understand why it’s his business who Olivia is sleeping with. Sonny says they are friends and he’s worried, but Mike thinks he’s jealous.

    Olivia is behind the desk in the lobby of the Metro Court and Spinelli and Maxie walk off the elevator. Spinelli starts to fill her in on what he overheard Kate and Olivia talking about, when Claudia walks in demanding Olivia stay away from Johnny! Olivia demands she leave and Maxie is stunned to learn Johnny and Olivia slept together. Claudia and Olivia exchange threats and Claudia leaves.

    Spinelli and Maxie go back to the Crimson office and Spinelli is confident Johnny has been exposed as a cad, but Maxie doesn't think this is any of their business and wants to go back to work. Spinelli thinks the ‘mob prince’ has been banished from her life.

    Claudia goes to see Johnny and lays into him about Olivia, but he thinks it’s none of her business. Maxie comes to the garage and overhears Johnny and Claudia fighting. Johnny sees Maxie and Claudia tells him to sleep with Maxie instead of Olivia.

    After Claudia leaves, Maxie asks why Johnny slept with Olivia. Johnny defends it and wonders why she cares. Maxie thought he liked her and Johnny thinks she just wants everyone’s attention. She admits she is attracted to him, but she needs Spinelli. Johnny is tired of games and if she wants to do this, "Then let's go!"

    Sonny comes to the Metro Court and asks Olivia about Johnny. Olivia doesn't feel the need to defend herself, but Sonny is worried about Johnny’s mental stability. Sonny thinks she is paying him back for getting Claudia pregnant. Olivia tells him not to flatter himself. He tells her to be careful because John Zacchara is a bad idea for her.

    Sonny and Jason meet up in the hospital lobby and they discuss Michael and how it parallels Jason’s past. Sonny knows things could have been a lot worse and Carly doesn’t understand that. Jason recommends Sonny give Michael some room and to not let him play them against each other.

    A soaked Nikolas and Rebecca return to Wyndemere and kiss.

    After Tracy leaves, Luke tells Ethan he has to play by Holly’s rules. They argue and Holly enters. She tells them the game isn’t fun anymore so she came to tell them the truth. Luke is suspicious, but Holly says she didn’t mean to hurt anyone and it’s time for full disclosure. She says she is Ethan’s mother, but Luke is not his father. Luke looks disappointed and Holly tells him he will have to settle for the kids he already has. Ethan demands to know who his father is and Holly tells him it’s Robert Scorpio.

    Lulu and Michael joke around and Edward comes back to see his great-grandson. He asks Michael if he has given living at the manse some thought and tells him he can have anything he wants. Michael says it’s too bad Lulu doesn’t live there any more. Edward says she can move back. Lulu knowingly smiles at Michael, as Edward fawns all over him. Edward thinks Michael will move in, but Carly comes in and yells at Edward for wanting to take her son away from his home. Carly wants to talk to Michael alone and declares Michael will come home with her, as Sonny walks in.

    Lulu runs to Jason for help in Michael’s room, as Sonny, Carly and Edward fight over Michael. Michael declares that he wants to live with Sonny.

    How can Luke say that he doesn't know if he would leave Tracy for Hollie. He wouldn't even leave Tracy for Laura and that was the love of his life.

    I feel so bad for Carly. Go ahead and let that crazy Michael go stay with the people responsible for him being shot in his water head. Will he blame Sonny for trying to re-place him, with another baby. It should keep Claudia worrying about when Michael is going to remember what he heard her confess. One more thing about Claudia who can she call trash, if I were Olivia I would have punched her in the stomach. Talking about Olivia is old enough to be Johnny's mother. Olivia looks ten times better then her. Claudia looks more like a dude. Whew! Now I feel better.

    One more thing, I figured that Scorpio might have been the father of Ethan. Now Robin has a brother, how sweet. Just like her husband found out he had a brother. I hope they get along.

    Today's show was like a French farce. Let me see, Sonny knows about Jolivia, so does Spinelli, Claudia, Mike, Kate, Maxie and everyone within earshot of the Metro Court lobby. The only one who doesn't know yet is Lulu. And they are all SO hung up on the age difference. I just LOVED the way Olivia hit back at Claudia when Claws threatened her. Go for it girl! As I said yesterday, all that opposition is going to push them together all the more. Sonny was acting like the jealous lover. Just wait till Dante gets to hear of this.

    Whew, that's a relief! Ethan is not Luke's son but Roberts. Now Robin has a brother, Mac a nephew, and Patrick a brother-in-law.

    No one ever answered my question from a few days ago. Were Nic and Emily as BORING as Nic and Rebecca?? I can't wait for this to be over.

    Obviously, the recap is supposed to say Michael "wants" to live with Sonny instead of "wasn't." Michael doesn't know yet that Sonny and Claudia are married or that they're having a baby. He may change his tune when he finds that out. But he may actually like Claudia after hearing her voice every week while he was in a coma.

    Sonny is worried about Johnny's mental stability? HA! Hello pot, have you met kettle?

    I was hoping that Ethan was Robert's but I don't know if I believe Holly.

    I love Johnny and Claudia together! They are so so hott. No one else can justify complaining about it, it's not their buesiness! Sonny and Maxie and Claudia need to mind their own business!
    I was guessing that Holly would sasy Scorpio was Ethan's father. I'm wondering if she's lieing though..

    Posted by TNbuckle at Friday, May 22 2009 02:00 PM

    Leslooo, did you mean to say Johnny and Olivia are hot together? ('Cause you said Johnny and Claudia)

    The funniest thing I have heard on a soap in quite a while was Claudia calling Olivia or ANYBODY a tramp or trash. She is lower than the lowest snake, but she wants to talk about someone else. Both Johnny and Olivia are single. Even if there is an age difference, who cares. The most selfish of the protesters was, as usual, Maxie. She doesn't want Johnny, but she wants him pining away for her forever.

    I have never been a Carly fan, but I do not like the way Michael is treating her. I don't care how sick he's been, someone needs to call him on his behavior, and I think Carly was ready to do that when the show went off.

    Posted by Mommy K at Friday, May 22 2009 03:01 PM

    I think Claudia wants Johnny for herself. She was acting like she wanted Johnny to sleep with her instead of Olivia. It seems like Sonny still has a thing for Olivia, he was so jealous today. That's also what's getting under Clawdia's skin. She seeing how much Sonny cares about Olivia. Maxie please get a life the world does not revolve around you. I was wondering if Nicholas is playing Rebecca or is he that stupid to fall for her.
    I read that Michael will get close to Clawdia, which will break Carly's heart. I can see that little brat playing the Q's against his parents.
