    Thursday, September 03 2009
    Andrea attempts to drug Edward, Elizabeth is on to Nikolas, Edward has a lady friend, Carly realizes Jason and Sam are getting back together, Maxie helps Spinelli face his fears, Lulu accepts Matt’s offer and Anthony plans a surprise for the carnival.

    Sam comes to see Jason at his place to tell him they don’t have to go to the carnival together. As they talk about it, Jason inches closer to her, but then Carly knocks on the door. After Carly thanks Sam for helping bring the kids home, Sam nervously leaves. Carly realizes Jason and Sam are getting back together, but Jason doesn’t confirm anything. Carly knows better and tells him she can help him. She correctly assumes they aren’t talking about it, which will make Sam pull back when they make plans so as not to crowd him. She warns her friend if he’s not careful, they will end up further apart than ever.

    Alexis and Kristina discuss her heavy school schedule and getting into Yale. Alexis brings up the carnival and says Sonny will come through and take her, but she doesn’t want her to go anywhere alone with Michael, who comes to the door. He wants his sister to go with him to watch them set up the carnival, but Alexis won’t let Kristina go off with him alone. Kristina understands that she needs to do whatever it takes to get back on the right track.

    At Wyndemere, Nikolas puts a photo of Emily away, as Rebecca comes down in a dress just like the one in the photo. Rebecca likes the dress, but notes it’s not her usual style. Nikolas suggests she let her hair go back to its natural color and she wonders if he wants it to look like Emily’s. Nikolas just thinks she shouldn't tamper with nature.

    Patrick and Elizabeth discuss the carnival at the hospital and Robin walks up to tell them she found a witness to I.D. Andrea at the Metro Court.

    Edward orders a martini at the Metro Court bar and Andrea sits down with him. Edward gets a call and steps away to take it, which gives Andrea the opportunity to put the Digitalis in his drink. Edward returns and they toast to his good health and a long life. Before Edward can take a drink he sees an attractive woman get off the elevator and spills his drink in his rush to go over to her.

    Patrick and Robin step off the elevator at the hospital and Robin reveals that Edward is the eyewitness who can place Andrea at the hotel the same time Brianna was there.

    Maxie goes to arrange plans with Spinelli for the carnival and after feebly trying to get out of it, Spinelli finally admits he is scared of clowns.

    Dominic sees Lulu at Kelly’s and asks her to go to the carnival. Lulu passes, but accepts Matt’s invitation, who has walked in. After Matt leaves, Dominic continues his cocky act and says he knows she's trying to get to him and it’s working.

    Elizabeth, Lucky and the kids wait for Nikolas and Rebecca on the pier and Rebecca gets off the launch alone because Nikolas is on a conference call. Liz recognizes the dress Rebecca is wearing as one similar to Emily’s. Lucky acknowledges the dress to Rebecca and Elizabeth looks concerned as she says Nikolas gave it to her. Elizabeth falls back when Lucky and Rebecca head off to the carnival.

    Sam comes to the office and after learning Spinelli won’t go to the carnival, offers to handle the case and leaves. Spinelli thinks that was odd, but Maxie wants to talk about his fear of clowns. He explains that his grandmother used to place a gruesome milk pitcher with an evil grin on it on the table every morning and it scared him. Maxie gets an idea of how to conquer his fear of clowns and leads him out the door.

    Robin and Patrick talk about the kickoff party and Matt tells them he has a date and leaves. Monica walks up hoping they aren’t trying to get out of the party because they need doctors there. She says Edward will be there because he is always at the Metro Court lately.

    Edward and the woman sit at a table and act very familiar with each other.

    Lulu meets Carly at the hospital and tells her cousin about a guy who is annoying her, as Olivia joins them. Lulu says he’s not taking no for an answer, but he's cute and fun. However, she tells the women there’s no way she’s going out with Dominic. Olivia reacts when she learns it’s Dominic Lulu has been talking about and then he walks up to them. Lulu and Dominic engage in their usual banter and Lulu runs off. Olivia lashes out at Dominic, telling him he needs to treat girls with respect and he can’t win them over with his charm and dimples. Dominic points out he doesn’t have dimples and walks off. Carly thinks Dominic reminds Olivia of Sonny, because she sees the similarities too.

    Patrick and Robin come to the party and note Edward flirting with the woman they don’t recognize. Edward tells his companion they had a wonderful summer and hopes it continues into the fall. The woman suggests they go to a bed and breakfast and Edward says he always has time for her. Patrick and Robin watch as Edward charms the woman and Monica walks over to her father-in-law. Edward introduces his friend Deidre to Monica and Andrea enters the party with the Dialysis in her purse.

    At a nearby table, Alexis talks to Jax about Kristina. She says her daughter started acting out when Michael woke up, but Jax thinks they might not be as different as she thinks.

    Sam returns to Jason’s to tell him she has to work so he doesn’t have to take her to the carnival, but Jason says he wants to go with her. Spinelli walks in dressed like a clown because he is confronting his fears and is going to the carnival. He notes Shakespeare had clowns in his plays, but then realizes York was represented by a skull, meaning death. Sam wonders what danger could be at a carnival. Spinelli says even if there were danger, he’s dressed like a clown and the buffoon often gets the better of the devil.

    Elizabeth goes to see Nikolas, finds the photo of Emily and asks why he gave Rebecca a dress just like the one in the photo. She calls him out on his plan for revenge and thinks it will hurt him more than it will Rebecca.

    Kristina and Kiefer meet in front of Kelly’s and he tells her she is the only girl he thinks about and kisses her.

    In prison, Anthony talks to someone about the carnival and says he will send over a little surprise of his own.

    Next on General Hospital:

    The carnival gets underway.

    Andrea attempts to poison Edward again.

    Jason helps Sam on a case.

    Max accuses Diane of using him.

    I really love Jason and Sam but I can not stand them as a couple this time around. It seems so old and boring them together saving the day again over and over and over. Please give Sam someone that really loves her and she can love she is to obessed with Jason and Jason will alway love liz no matter what. I am ready for a good love story with general hospital but Jason and Sam are not it.

    Okay, I got to say I LOVE the scene with Jason and Carly! it has been to long since Carly was on the giving end of the friendship and what she had to say was PRICELESS! Girlfriend hit the nail on the head! Just their interaction was to funny watching Jason squirm and Carly call him out. And I LOVED that she accepts that Sam is the one that makes Jason happy.

    The scene with Spinnelli coming into the apartment and Jason and Sam was pretty priceless too. As silly as Spin is right now on somethings his antics with these two bring home the history this trio has. course when he started speaking Shakespeare and all that I got that glazed over look I get when Spin speaks to much, but the whole show just made me ready for tomorrow's episode already.

    I am torn over who I think Lulu would be best with. I want Matt to get some screen time cause I think this is talent being wasted. and I see Dante and Lulu as her and Johnny all over again so I think I have to pull for Matt on this one as he is more along the lines of what Lulu is but could make it fun and entertaining as well. I could change my mind tomorrow though so we shall see.

    Alexis blaming Michael for all of Kristina's issues? Will someone get this woman a glass of reality? She had no clue how her kid was cause she was so wrapped up in her own being the DA and her own issues she was never around until now that she has resigned to see what Kristina was doing. But that is Alexis, never does the blame fall on her kids unless its Sam, wow what a wake up call she is going to get before long. Sad thing is I like Alexis most of the time but her denial in life is more than I can handle sometimes.

    Can you imagine..Johnny or Dante' dressing and acting like Spinelli today? Me either. I think those 3 are suppose to be peers, and while I agree, not all 20 something men act alike, this is out-of-control weird. Be a man Spinelli!
    Alexis is totally in denial. She really needs to get a clue and fast.
    Sam still felt the need to flee when Carley is in the picture. I do hope as Jason and Sam grow closer he looses the habit of putting Sonny, Carley and kids above his relationship.
    Enjoy seeing Cam (he's my all time fav kid on the show) and Jake and Spencer. They are so cute together.
    Olivia..I try not to let my total disgust cloud my judgement but, she makes it so hard. She acts like a fool! She may as well wear a sign saying "I can't get over Sonny and Dante is his kid".
    Edward still has "it". That lady friend was a good find for him until Monica blew up his spot!

    Alexis: You stupid wench, I wish that Carly was within earshot to hear Alexis, a murderous, perjurious (If there is such a word, Ring you're a lawyer right?), sleeping-with-raging-psychopath-of-a-hypocrite slamming her son and blaming him for her daughter's criminal actions just so she could rip her stupid head off. I mean, honestly, when is she going to pull her Yale-educated Azz of out the sand and realize what is going on. Even Claudia had warned her about Kristina a few months back when Alexis came over whining to Sonny and Claudia told her that she is another deluded parent thinking that their child is perfect only to get the shock of their life when they turn the TV on and see their precious daughter flashing all who can see on Girls gone Wild. Remember that anyone. Somebody, Please sock Alexis a lefter! If only I could. I know this is only a show... sorry

    I must admit that I'd wished I'd remembered my Shakespeare after watching this show.

    I'd found everything about this show so unreal today, with the possible exception of Carly. But even her discussion with Jason I found strained as she hasn't needed or been so dependent on him lately since her gazzilionair husband impregnated her and moved her into the big house. And naturally it was all about her and not Jason. But she saw the attraction between Jason and Sam and was willing to give him up. HOw noble.

    Olivia, I'm more and more not liking her. I mean why was she there with Carly and Lulu? And her reaction to Dominic was sooooooo stupid. Carly knows and will know even more once the pregnancy is over, if not sooner.

    And who the heck does Alexis think she and her children are? She is such an elitist. Imagine telling Jax that Khristina was fine until she started hanging around with Michael. And she has the audacity to ask if there will there be any consequences for Michael's behavior. Huh?

    And Spinelli in a clown costume.
    And AZ getting involved with the carnival? I remember the Black and White ball.
    And Rebecca agreeing to wear that hideous dress to the carnival. Has she gone loony?

    And are we expected to believe that Edward is having an affair with that lovely woman? I suppose ANYTHING is possible.

    And what is the purpose of Matt? Have they kept him waiting in the lurches until Maxie is officially available? And She will be now that they're making a bafoon out of sweet Spinelli.

    Well, that's it from me at least for the moment.

    Posted by enad19 at Thursday, September 03 2009 02:10 PM

    Spinelli is a parody of himself. TSW needs to tone him down a couple million shades, there is only so much one can bear. He has long passed ridiculous.

    Posted by beenaroundalongtime at Thursday, September 03 2009 02:12 PM

    Hey cbru and Kini.

    Why is it when a new guy falls for Lulu she's written to fake liking him. They have mature her look why not the attitude. As for the guy, why must they chase the cat (George Clinton P-Funk).

    Posted by ransomha at Thursday, September 03 2009 02:20 PM

    ttoyou:hahah funny post! That red dress was TERRIBLE!
    I think we have the idea that Jason and Sam are taking it slow. they can act like adults again. They already did the deed. If you want to tell him something..CALL.'s all honest..and just SAY WHAT YOU REALLY WANT...we did this shy stuff for days..move on.
