    A lot To Learn About Family.

    Tuesday, October 06 2009
    Jason vouches for Dominic, Claudia formulates a new plan, Olivia breaks it off with Johnny, the kids don't like Carly's choice of a name, and Helena tells Luke about another Cassadine.

    Sonny tells a disappointed Claudia he doesn’t want another child because he isn’t doing his kids any good now by exposing them to what he does for a living and distancing himself isn’t helping them either. Claudia thinks it would be different because she grew up in the business and she would teach their child to love and accept them and what they do. Sonny apologizes for leading her on, but he can’t bring another child into the world. Claudia wonders, what if she’s already pregnant? Sonny would never ask her to have an abortion, he just wants to prevent it from happening if she’s not pregnant. A teary Claudia says if she isn’t pregnant she won’t bring it up again.

    Johnny doesn’t understand why Olivia is breaking up with him reminding her she told him she loved him yesterday. He wonders what’s really going on, but she throws out every excuse she can think of to end it, leading him to wonder why she is so desperate to get rid of him. She says, while she won’t allow herself to be with Sonny, she loves him and can’t keep sleeping with Johnny, wishing he was someone else. She asks him to let it be over, but Johnny insists it’s not and kisses her. She responds at first, but then breaks it off and asks him to respect her decision. He agrees to leave because he can’t stand to listen to the garbage coming out of her mouth. He knows something else is going on, but if she can’t trust him then they didn’t have what he thought they did. He wishes her luck with Sonny and leaves. Olivia makes a phone call and says, “I need to see you as soon as possible.”

    Jason goes to assist Dominic with Tommy Soto to make sure there are no loose ends.

    Dante offers Tommy a deal and when he won’t take it, he pulls his gun and tells him if he declines, he is of no use to him anymore. Tommy doesn’t believe he would risk a murder rap, but Dante makes it clear it’s in his best interest if he is dead. Tommy agrees to give him names, dates, and anything else he wants to know. Dante is happy with that answer and hands him the gun instructing Tommy to knock him out.

    Spencer shows Lucky his drawing and a panicked Nikolas grabs it saying he is going to put it in a special place. Nikolas tells his son to go upstairs and go to bed. Lucky wonders why he isn’t going to tuck him in and Nikolas explains his son has a schedule and there is a staff member who helps him with that. He says kids need structure, but Lucky thinks he has a lot to learn about family. Nikolas thinks his son is better off with minimal exposure to him because he is messed up, selfish and a Cassadine. Lucky doesn’t think he is anything like his family, but Nikolas wonders what if he took something that was never meant to be his.

    Carly comes to the kids and tells them and Jax their baby will be named Jocelyn John Jacks.

    Jason finds Dominic, who gets up off the ground and tells him the hit went wrong and apologizes for messing it up.

    In Greece, Lulu and Ethan talk to Mischa who tells them Helena is desperately ill and getting weaker by the day. She says she is just a nurse for hire, but thinks she is in over her head. She tells them Luke is definitely being held prisoner, but can’t be sure he is still alive.

    Luke wakes up chained to a chair in Helena’s bedroom and accuses her of setting him up. She assures him she is gravely ill and that Mikos had another illegitimate son named Valentin. He was rejected at birth and has been biding his time while seething with resentment, but now he is ready to strike. She urgently tells him Valentin must be stopped before he annihilates everyone they love.

    Jason brings Dominic to Sonny to explain that Tommy jumped him and got away. Sonny had high hopes for him, but there is no room for him in his organization and throws him out. Jason stops him reminding Sonny that Dominic saved Morgan’s life. He will always owe him for that and wants Sonny to give him another chance. Sonny will let him stay, but he is on probation. Dominic leaves and Sonny asks why Jason stepped up for Dominic. Jason says he knew Sonny didn’t want to fire him and reminds him it’s difficult to take someone out face to face, especially when you've worked closely with him. Sonny concedes he might have judged him harshly and then changes the topic to Claudia. He asks Jason to have some compassion and treat Claudia with a little bit of respect.

    Jax comes to Olivia who tells him Claudia knows everything. She thinks maybe now it’s time to make her pay for what she did to Michael. Jax doesn't want her to overreact and what Claudia did to Michael is his secret to tell, which will be after the baby is born. Olivia doesn’t know if she can wait that long and thinks she would have no problem telling Jason about Claudia so he can kill her.

    Claudia takes a pregnancy test, but is disappointed by the results.

    Molly tries to come up with more name options for the baby and as they discuss it, Michael has another memory of Claudia. Carly tells the kids to come up with one name each and if she doesn't like it better than Jocelyn John, then they are finished with the discussion. She sends Michael out of the room and questions Kristina about Michael, as he returns, furious they are talking about him.

    Dominic goes to Sonny’s house to find Claudia who tries to seduce him. He puts her off wondering what her agenda is. As she kisses him, Johnny flies into the room threatening to crush Claudia’s skull if she doesn’t tell him what she did to Olivia.

    Next on General Hospital:

    Claudia continues to manipulate.

    Jason, Sam and Spinelli set out to prove Claudia’s guilt.

    Michael takes his anger out on Kiefer.

    Nikolas joins Lulu and Ethan in Greece.

    Johnny boy has lost his mamma!!! Booo hoo!!!! Please, let Claudia stop trying to protect him and let her give him a good smackdown for manhandling her. The last time some man tried to choke her, she kneeded him so hard in the groin and almost decapitated him with her patent red sitlettos. Please let that Claudia from the early days come back, please, pretty please!!!!!!

    Crush Claudia Johnny boy, you don't have the nerve, you are not even man enough to admit your mistakes, instead you keep hiding behind your sister and letting her assume all the blame for your part in Sonny's shooting. Now go and cowboy the hell up and quit whining. You owe whatever life you already have to your sister who has been covering your disloyal bu@#

    I wonder where Dominic parked Tommy soto? Surely he would need to put him in protective custody for now, otherwise Tommy will be long gone.

    Olivia had me shouting at the screen today. "You cruel, cruel, cruel, woman!" I just LOVE doomed love affairs, but she really hurt Johnny today. Still, I was really surprised when Johnny tore into Claudia. I never saw that one coming. What a pity Dominic will probably be a gentleman and save her.

    enad19, you and I usually agree on things, but I see Johnny as truly in love with Olivia, and vice versa. What really turned the knife was when she said she had felt sorry for him because of his dreadful upbringing. That was cruel. My tears welled up and I had to hug the cat.

    I know the feministas will jump on me again, but I really hope he smacks Claudia around before Dom interferes to save her scrawny neck.

    Hello to all. Hope everyone is doing well! Finally moved into new apartment.

    Cynic I agree. I think that Johnny really loves Oli. Too bad. I like them two together.

    Lucky & Nik discussing the Cassadine’s dark history was a snore.

    Olivia’s break up with Johnny was a bore. I have no sympathy for this woman no matter how many hypocritical tears she sheds.
    Plus, Olivia is mistaken about Claudia destroying her life. Olivia is the one who hid a son from Sonny. Olivia is the one who came to Port Charles, where Sonny lives & mettles in her undercover cop son’s life. If Olivia is looking for someone to blame for her recent misery take one look in the mirror. If life in Port Charles is getting to hard to handle, Olivia can try saving a couple Hail Mary’s on her rosary or better yet, move out!

    As for Johnny, enad19 said it the best.

    On the positive side: It was interesting to watch Dante convince Tommy to go into police custody & keep his cover.
    It was also nice to see Ethan & Lulu continue on their mission to find Luke.

    Starlett: Your right Mischa is a Cassadine, so Ethan & Lulu are in big trouble if they trust her.

    I feel sorry for Johnny & Olivia, love them as a couple and it will be another Karaoke with Johnny singing to Olivia(hope that doesn't change). The story is shaping up as a who killed Claudia because she is going to have so many people gunning for her. I guess my girl Robin will be on the case.

    enad19: Johnny has admitted to his part in the Sonny plot, but Claudia is the one who set the plan in motion by telling him she would handle Sonny instead of him and Johnny went along with it. He has helped her with Rick on numerous occasions but Claudia doesn't no when to quit because she is just like Sonny act first think later.

    I guess Michael's rages are back!

    Though Olivia did hid her son from his father, no one would know about it if KATE didnt feel the need to continuously bring it up in public.

    Posted by firebird85 at Tuesday, October 06 2009 04:59 PM

    Olivia's baby secret wouldn't be an issue if she didn't settle in Port Charles. If anyone has trouble keeping her mouth shut it's Olivia. She destroyed one of Jerry's cds that would have incriminated Claudia in Michael's shooting instead of giving it to Kate. Kate was going to show Sonny but Olivia butted in and destroyed it. If anyone deserves sympathy it's Kate for getting shot twice; once by Michael & the other time by Anthony during her wedding.
    I am sorry but Olivia is responsible for her own predicament.

    Guess Dante was a bad boy because he did not do as Sonny instructed. So what does mobster man do but throw him under the bus. Sonny is way beyond pathetic. Guess his test of loyalty is total obedience, no matter how idiotic it is. Whoever said he acts before he thinks was right. And now Jason is supposed to respect Claudia. Her downfall cannot come soon enough for me. Now she is going after Dante. Will she try blackmail on him? Obviously, she could care less who knocks her up so she can go to Sonny and tell him she is pregnant. And being the doofus he is now, he will believe her.

    Cynic, I agree with you about Johnny and Olivia. I think they love each other. She shouldn't be consulting with Jax who once again proves what a jerk he is. I am not buying his claim that he will tell Carly about Michael after the baby is born. I would also like to see JZ smack his sister. She needs to stay out of his life. It is just too creepy to me to see her interfere in his love life.

    I could really do with less Sonny and Claudia and more of the Ethan, Lulu, Luke and Helena s/l.

    I love the name Jocelyn, but John??? Where did that come from?

    Hi aussie, FUFU, been, enad, tt, beyond, TN, bean, zen, gen, fire, heart, tipsy, cynic, starlett and anyone I missed.

    And if there is a Claudia murder mystery, Robin needs to keep her nose out of it and stick to medicine.
