    Swimming in Antarctica.

    Friday, May 29 2009
    Jax and Carly get the go ahead from Kelly, Carly overhears Michael and Claudia bond, Sam and Jason confront Fredo and Holly confesses.

    Robin informs Holly she told Ethan there is no way Robert is his father. Holly knows she’s made a mess of things and Robin wonders if she is even Ethan’s mother. Holly declares Ethan is her son, but doesn’t expect her to understand. She thought her and Luke deserved a bit more fun and hoped they might have fabulous adventures with Ethan. Robin wonders why Holly didn’t just leave Ethan alone and Holly says she wanted to make sure he was okay. Robin tells her all of the confidence he once possessed is gone because she won’t give him a straight answer. Holly says she is leaving, but has one more stop to make.

    At GH, Patrick fills Sonny in on Michael’s poor impulse control and suggests people stop pressuring Michael and not fight around him. Sonny appreciates what he’s done for Michael and asks after Emma and Robin. Sonny tells Patrick Robin just needs him to love her and Patrick responds that’s what Michael needs too.

    Michael and Claudia bond over zombie movies as Jason secretly listens in. Jason then makes his presence known and Michael tells Jason he can’t believe Sonny married someone so cool. A nurse comes in to take Michael’s vitals and asks Jason and Claudia to leave.

    In the hallway, Jason grabs Claudia’s arm and tells her he won’t let her hide behind Michael when she’s the reason he was shot. Claudia doesn’t see what he can do about it. She reminds him she is pregnant with Sonny’s child and Jason wonders if she is sure about that. Sonny walks up and tells them to stop fighting. The nurse comes out and says Michael is fine, but there is no arguing in front of the patient.

    Sonny, Claudia and Jason come back into Michael’s room and he excitedly talks to Sonny about his new stepmom and Jason leaves.

    Jax and Carly get passionate in his office, but Jax stops things because he doesn’t want to hurt her and the baby. Carly wonders how he will be able to abstain until after the baby comes and Jax says he will go swimming in Antarctica.

    At the Haunted Star, Ethan and Luke discuss Holly and the possibility that they might be related. They assume Holly is long gone and Ethan asks if Tracy will give Luke the boot. Luke doesn’t know and laments his wife fixing the DNA test. He suggests they do another one by mail so they know for sure. Ethan thinks they should just leave it alone, but Luke says he doesn't have time to squander so if he is his father, he’d like to know it and enjoy it.

    Lucky comes to the casino and asks Luke if he got the answer he was looking for from Holly. Lucky learns Robert can’t be Ethan’s father and gets upset that Luke could be Ethan's dad after all because that negates all the good years they shared as a family. Luke says he can either forgive him or he can hate him for the rest of his life and tries to tell Lucky he loves him, but Lucky gets mad and leaves.

    Maxie comes to see Spinelli with orange soda and BBQ chips and tells him about her trip to NYC. Spinelli wonders who she went to the parties with and he is assured she wasn’t with Johnny. Maxie asks him to look at Kate’s PDA for clues as to why she is sabotaging her magazine. Spinelli is excited and they head out to look at it.

    Carly meets with Kelly and tells her Jax won’t have sex with her. Kelly sympathizes and says having sex would be good for her within reason and Carly asks her to write her a note saying it’s okay.

    Jason complains to Sam about Claudia and wants proof that she’s involved in Michael’s shooting. Sam gets a call and both of them bolt out the door.

    Michael and Sonny talk about Claudia and then Carly. Sonny tells his son to take his anger out on him or Jason, not Carly. Michael wonders why his mother would have a baby while he was in a coma. Sonny assures him she’s not trying to replace him and Claudia pipes up that she and Sonny are having a baby too. Michael is okay with it and Carly overhears as Michael says he can’t wait to be a big brother to their baby. Sonny remains indifferent as Michael asks questions about the baby and Sonny tries to talk up Carly, but Michael just keeps talking about Claudia’s baby.

    Patrick comes home and he and Robin discuss Michael’s surgery. They banter over who is the better doctor and agree that they are both amazing. They kiss, but are interrupted by Emma.

    Spinelli and Maxie return to the office, but didn’t find anything on Kate’s PDA, but Spinelli isn’t discouraged.

    Carly goes back to Jax’s office and cries about Michael. Jax tells her to give Michael some time because things will get better, maybe sooner than they think. Jax tells her Michael is still her little boy and he’s just trying to find his way home. They start to kiss and Carly gives him Kelly’s doctor’s note giving them permission to have sex, which they start to engage in.

    Sam and Jason hold a gun on Fredo and ask him who hired him to blow up Jerry’s car. After a little probing, Fredo confesses that Claudia hired him to kill Jerry and he has proof.

    Sonny and Claudia go home and discuses Michael. Sonny notes Michael likes her because they don’t have history and Patrick says that's a good thing. He can't believe she of all people is exactly what his son needs.

    Luke and Ethan continue to discuss a DNA test, but Ethan says it’s time for him to move on. Luke encourages him to grab himself some adventure because there is a lot of world out there waiting patiently. Holly interrupts them and apologizes that things got out of hand. Luke says Ethan deserves the truth and asks if he is their child. Holly finally confesses that Ethan is Luke’s son.

    Next on General Hospital:

    Carly is upset by Michael’s new living arrangements.

    Spinelli gives Jason the news he’s been waiting for.

    Lucky has a change of heart.

    I think they need to do more brain surgery on Michael. He finds out Sonny is having another baby and all he can say is
    "do you know if it's a boy or girl". Nothing like, "oh, you're replacing me". Then he wants to live with the lady that put a bullet in his head and can't wait to be a big brother to their baby. What a nutcase.

    I wonder what Sam and Jason are going to do with the information they have on the black widow spider.

    Finally Holly told the truth (maybe)! I'm ready for Sonny, Carly, Michael, and everyone to know about Claudia to get this over with. I like Olivia and Johnny; Jason and Elizabeth; and Sonny and Kate together as couples. GH rocks!

    Posted by Ringleader at Friday, May 29 2009 02:06 PM

    So, here's what I think is coming up. Michael will bond with Claudia and then Jason will have something he thinks is proof of her involvement in the shooting. What will Jason do then? Out Claudia with what he has connecting her to Michaels shooting (which, remember, can only be highly circumstancial at best because there was no paper trail - they always met in person, no money exchanged hands between them and Jerry, not Claudia, supplied the gun to Devlin) and risk setting Michael's recovery back, or keep his mouth shut to protect both Michael AND Carly (and her baby). I think we all know what's going to happen. I think Jason will even have to force himself to appear to like Claudia in front of Michael because otherwise Michael will pick up on Jason's mood.

    Now, will Sonny start to genuinely like Claudia when he sees her having a positive impact on Michael and actually helping him get better (like she said she would - just thought I'd point that out)? It's starting to get very, very interesting...

    You know, the show won't maximize the hurt and drama it could cause to find out Claudia was involved with Micheal's shooting unless Sonny first actually cares about her. If he got some "proof" now, it would be anticlimactic, if you ask me.

    Whatever proof Jason thinks he has from Fredo doesn't really prove anything. Claudia could easily explain away the Jerry car bomb on the fact that he stabbed her previously, tossed her in the river and left her for dead - do we remember that? She could say that he's been out to get her for a long time and implicating her in Michaels shooting is just his latest attempt to hurt her. Jerry is a lying psychopath who enjoys hurting people, so why would that not be believable. She could say that when he came back to town, he threatened her again and said that if Jason or Sonny found him, he would implicate her in the shooting (and she should add in, "even though I had nothing to do with it" for good measure), so, to protect her life and that of her child, she tried to kill him, even though she knew it would make her look guilty to them. I know it's not even remotely the truth, but it sounds perfectly reasonable (in mob/Port Charles context, that is). Of course, if this sounds reasonable to me, maybe I've been watching too long or should go to therapy - or both! LOL

    "Wow"---GH was sooo good today. Patrick&Robin were getting
    along so well. I was so happy to see that finally. Please
    let it last!
    How about Jason&Sam I love the way they work together Fredo,
    finally they got the goods on Claudia. Now all we need to
    get is to have Sonny actually do something about what jason
    tells Sonny about Claudia. C'mon Sonny wake up. Your wife
    is a psyco-path. But I would like to see Jason get back
    together w/Sam. They are the same she accepts his life-style which is perfect. Plus, I hear they are going on an
    adventure, which will bring them closer. I can only hope.
    And, last but not least finally HOlly told the truth, thanks to Robin nonthe less she was honest with Luke and
    Ethan. I just wish they were not father and son. Because
    I thought he clicked real well w/Lulu.
    Oh well I guess you can't have everything you want.
    Oh and I loved the humor with Carly and Jax.
    and, how Dr.Kelly wrote a note to tell Jax it was okay to
    have sex with your wife while she is pregnant. How funny.
    But awful sad when Carly saw michael bonding with that snake
    "Claudia". She is such a b----!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Jason will get her.

    I'm ready to boycott General Hospital. Is Michael going to be Jason's mini-me?

    Posted by ransomha at Friday, May 29 2009 02:43 PM

    Ringleader: girl you are on fire! glad to have you back. hope you had a great vacation. Now tell is Claudia going to explain away the fact that the baby could be Ric's?Wish Sonny knew that NOW!..she did look better then usual today. Sam looked fantastic..that girl is a beauty. And only Maxie could pull off that wild hair. I am glad that Ethan is Lukes. They are so cute together. Lucky is just so angry all the time and I think LuLu will enjoy having him for a brother. Was pleased that Robin jumped up to get the baby when she cried. The casting on Emma is so great. That baby looks like she could really be Patric's. Was disapointed in this cliffhanger. I always hope for a big bang on fridays. Have a good weekend everyone.

    Ringleader, I agree with you. Jason will not say a word about Claudia.

    I think it will come down to Michael all on his own, when he puts the voice he heard in his hospital room and connects it with Claudia.

    Posted by nancy marie at Friday, May 29 2009 03:26 PM

    I agree with ransomha. Who gave the usually wily Sonny the stupid pill? How come he has just glossed over the fact that he was witness to Claudia and Ric's diddling? Not a word from his mouth! He just robot-like keeps telling everyone that "Claudia is carrying my child--even though I don't love her," blah, blah, blah! Sarah Brown surely must have an "in" with TPTB. Unbelievable as are all the stories currently trotted out for the lame sweeps: the Luke/Holly/Ethan/Tracy story; the Michael coming back to life after "more than a year"(as some character vaguely stated)looking buff and rearing to go--so articulate and angry? Will GH miracles never cease? Yes, indeed, they apparently do cease in regard to the Laura storyline--no such sure-fire miracle; rather, she was sent off the France for "extended treatment."
    And Nicholas must share the stupid pill re the Rebecca storyline! Whew! So tiring to watch him trudge through his lines like he hates being there. And they trotted Helena out without a well-defined reason for her being there. And they're going to bring her back for an episode or so to "wrap up the Rebecca storyline--just like they trotted out Emma Samms with the ill-defined storyline with Ethan which has come to naught. Not wonder Tony Geary (Luke) walks around in a stupor and Tracy (Jane Eliott) comes off like a desperate, cluthing shrew--and does anyone remember when she hated Luke's guts and called him course and stupid--goes way back, folks. Unfortunately, we, the viewers, have no such amnesia as do the characters on screen (or the writers). How they get away with such antics in this time of salary cuts, cancellations, and stipped down budgets. Oh, well, no one is listening . . . .as GH self-destructs. C'est la vie, c'est la guerre, c'est l'amour.

    im glad jason has not fallen into claudia's sick web like sonny who sould have done more to stand up for carly-how lame was that.

    who else was sick about the whole mike claudia interaction; i hope jason blows her cover soon, dont know how much of her i can take.

    jax and carly were hilarious today, felt bad for carly its like mike is trying to replace her with claudia and then he goes on to say that carly is the one doing that

    love spin and maxie, but only just as friends, what happened to winnifred, i think she and spin had more going on as a couple.

    and why is maxie protecting kate, if it were the other way aroung she would not think twice about firing her, lulu or anyone else.

    hope we get more jason and carly, they are always sth to look forward to.
    and how about that holly-think she actually cares about someone else besides herself?

    like ethan especially when he is far way from luke, otherwise cant stand him.

    loved robin today esp. when she ran to take care of emma, she couldnt wait.

    kelly was fun today. wish she was on more;
    what happened to lainey and cod and that whole thing with her dad;
    and what about bobby they should have more scenes btn her and carly, they are very enjoyable tgether.
