    Tuesday, March 16 2010
    News about Kristina travels, Sonny threatens Ethan, Ethan is arrested, and Helena gets the test results.


    Before looking at the results at the hospital, Helena makes sure the lab tech didn't talk to or take money from Nikolas. He vows he didn't and Helena is thrilled to learn Lucky is the father of Elizabeth's baby. She says all the history between the Spencers and the Cassadines will finally come to a fitting outcome and orders the tech to alter the results to show that Nikolas is the father of the baby. She wants to raise it as a Cassadine and teach it to hate all things Spencer. She looks forward to Luke's family coming undone by one of his own.



    At Shadybrook, Nikolas and Elizabeth discuss the paternity of her baby. She admits it would be easier for all of them if Lucky were the father. Nikolas gets a call from the lab tech to tell him there's been a delay and they won't get the results until the next day. After Nikolas has left, Helena visits Elizabeth and warns if her baby is a Cassadine, she will be seeing a lot more of her.



    Lying in her hospital bed, Kristina again states Ethan beat her, but Lucky wonders why he would do that, as Sonny leaves the room. As Alexis tearfully sits by her side, Kristina recounts what happened at the Haunted Star and says Ethan showed up at her house furious and started hitting her. She begged him to stop, but he kept hitting. She starts to cry as she says she thought he cared about her. Alexis wants to stop the questioning and Lucky agrees, but he needs to speak to Alexis and Sonny since she's a minor, but notices Sonny is gone.



    At the penthouse, Sam asks Jason for his help with Kristina and tells him about confronting Ethan. She feels responsible for telling Kristina too much about her past as a cautionary tale, thinking she subconsciously tried to follow in her footsteps instead. Sam gets a call from a distraught Alexis who tells her to come to the hospital because Ethan beat Kristina up. Sam hangs up, tells Jason what happened and leaves.



    Alexis comes to Kristina's hospital room and tells her daughter they can talk about what happened when they get home. Kristina thinks she must be disappointed in her, but Alexis assures her this is not her fault because no one has the right to lay their hands on her. She tells Kristina she loves her and they will get through this. Sam comes to the room, and apologizes for leaving Kristina alone at the house. She explains that she went to talk to Ethan after he bruised her arm and Kristina says she never should have made him angry, but both Sam and Alexis tell her it's not her fault. Sam talks with Kristina alone and assures her she will get stronger from this and learn to define her boundaries, just as she did. Kristina thinks she's partly to blame, but Sam again tells her she is not at fault.



    On the Haunted Star, Tracy wonders how nice Ethan was to Sonny's underage daughter. Ethan tells her what happened and Tracy goes to try and reach Luke in Vegas. After she exits, Sonny puts a gun in Ethan's back, but Dante walks in to stop anything from happening after Lucky called him. Dante draws his gun as Sonny tells Dante about Kristina and yells at him to think like a brother. Lucky comes aboard and confirms that Kristina identified Ethan as her assailant. Ethan swears he didn't do anything to Kristina, but Sonny isn't swayed. Sonny calls him garbage and guarantees he will pay. Sonny lowers his gun and walks out. Ethan explains to the cops and Tracy that he would never hit Kristina and tells them what happened. Lucky advises him to keep quiet and arrests him. Once Ethan is hauled away, Alexis comes to find Luke, but Tracy says she can't reach him. Alexis orders her to find him so he can urge Ethan to turn himself in or else Sonny will kill him and she doesn't want Kristina to have to live through that.


    In the lobby of the hospital, Sam tells Alexis about Kristina having sex with Kiefer and how she went to the clinic for protection with her. Alexis is shocked and Sam apologizes saying she never wanted Kristina to end up like her.


    Johnny comes to the station and talks with Ronnie, who knows he's responsible for two raids on Sonny, but they aren't filing charges because they don't have enough evidence. They won't look for more, but Ronnie advises him to stay out of trouble, adding they need him to testify at Sonny's trial. Lucky brings Ethan in and asks to brief Ronnie. Ronnie walks away from Johnny, who slips into the interrogation room to talk with Ethan. Ethan tells Johnny why he's there and proclaims his innocence. Johnny leaves and Lucky comes in the room, warning his brother things don't look good for him, but he needs to let the process play out. Ethan professes his innocence and Lucky wants to believe him, but doesn't understand why Kristina would make it up. Ethan says if he doesn't believe him he can just leave him alone.



    Sonny goes to Jason's and tells him about Kristina and going after Ethan. Jason thinks they need to focus on Kristina, but Sonny needs Jason to arrange for Ethan to die. Jason wonders what he will tell Luke. Sonny doesn't want trouble with Luke, but Ethan needs to be put down like a dog. He hopes Luke could put himself in his shoes, but says either way, Ethan dies tonight! Sonny leaves and Johnny comes over to tell Jason he doesn't think Ethan attacked Kristina. Johnny urges him to be sure before he goes off and kills Ethan.



    Dante comes to visit his sister after Sam has left and tells Kristina she's as gorgeous as ever – it's what happened to her that's ugly. He doesn’t want her to worry about Ethan, promising he'll be brought to justice. She says she's happy he's her brother and he returns the sentiment. Kristina falls asleep and Sonny walks in saying he will take things from there. Dante gets up and watches Sonny with his daughter from the doorway. Sonny whispers to a sleeping Kristina that she looks just like her grandmother. Dante listens as Sonny emotionally recalls being forced to watch his stepfather beat his mother. Choked up, he says none of his kids were ever supposed to go through anything like this.



    Kiefer comes to the Davis house and Molly answers the door. She invites him in and tearfully tells him Ethan beat Kristina up, which Kiefer is shocked to hear.


    Next on General Hospital:

    Alexis begs Jason not to kill Ethan.

    Elizabeth and Nikolas get the results.

    Tracy bails Ethan out of jail.

    I posted this on yesterday's board but I don't think anyone saw it, so I'm reposting it here. Sorry if you've read it already. I don't know what more to say. I've been, what I thought was clear, on my not agreeing with Kristina falsely naming Ethan as her assailant. What I've said is that Kristina just got the crap beat out of her, she's terrified of Keifer, so she's not going to name him at first. I think and I've said that she's mad at Ethan for him grabbing her arm (which is really wrong on his part) and I think she saw him as her rescuer and when he grabbed her like that he was no longer her rescuer but someone who caused her pain. I know it is not as extreme as what Keifer is doing to her, but what Ethan did WAS ABUSE!!!
    (Tiny side note) My deployment last year a guy got really trashed and grabbed me by the arm and left bruises. I told the cops and had to deal with people telling me it wasn't a big deal and I shouldn't have said anything. But it is NEVER okay for any guy to EVER put his hands on me in a manner that causes pain. I don't care how small the marks may be NOTHING is acceptable.

    So, Ethan went from being her prince on the white horse to being someone who hurt her. She's mad at him, and probably pretty hurt so she said Ethan hurt her. I think after she's had time to process what exactly she just caused to happen she will tell the truth, at least say that Ethan didn't do it.

    I just don't think it's ever okay to start victim blaming. I see it a lot being a Sexual Assault Victim Advocate. People want to put the blame on the victim for putting themselves in the situation. Now, I don't know how it is in the civilian world, but in the AF, if the victim was breaking rules before or at the time of the attack he/she will not face disciplinary action until after her situation has been handled. And it's because the victim just went through something horrible and needs to deal with that before any disciplinary action is taken. I do believe that Kristina should be taught that what she did was not, in ANY WAY, SHAPE or FORM, okay and that it has serious consequences. But I don't think that should be dealt with right now. Everyone's concern should be on getting Kristina the help she so desperately needs right now, not saying she deserves to get beat because of her naming Ethan as her assailant.
    Again, I am not saying it was right of Kristina to falsely accuse Ethan, but please can we stop with saying Kristina deserves this, that, and the other.

    Theresao-I completely agree with you. I don't think, at least I hope, TPTB aren't covering the harsh storyline of teen abuse by making it about Kristina lying. I think they're going to, like you said, show both sides of the story. I'm interested in seeing it play out..

    Hooray Monkey83!!!!!! I totally agree with everything you said!

    Posted by sgriffes at Tuesday, March 16 2010 01:30 PM

    i am sorry but it is just rong that no one is lisaning to ethan he is trying to tell them that it was not him kristina even remmberd back and no's that it was kiefer that did this to her.

    Ethan even tryed to tell sonny that it was not him but sonny would not lisen so he just held a gun to ethens chest or face i can't rember i mean if it wasen't for Dante and Lucky geting there when they did ethan would of ben shot.

    And like ethan ponted out if he was the one that beat her up his hands would would be all mest up and it is just rong thst sonny is puting a hit out on ethan the guy rilly need's to think befor he ack's.

    the only one that belives ethan is jonny come on there shuld be more than on persan that belives him KRISTINA just needs to tell the truth and stop lying to ever one desent she no that if you cry wife more then one time no one is gowing to belive you the next time somthing like this happens

    i am so digusted by kristina! okay, ethan did grab her and that was wrong but thats nothing to what keifer did. ethan should say sorry and mean it for grabbing her but wow -.- he doesent deserve jail for it. hes no abuser. i HATE keifer, i get digusted even by looking at his smug annoying face. kristina has taken it to far i think, nobody deserves to get beaten up like that but hasnt kristina learned that lying makes it worse? she kinda tangled this web on her own and should of told the truth about ethan and keifer. when people learn it was keifer its not gonna be pretty!

    i was crying so bad today, i feel so bad for sonny! damn, he doesent deserve that. its his kid you know? i dont think that people really remember what sonnys been through. i hope dante thinks long and hard about what sonny said today. sigh and where was mikey today?! i miss mikey!

    ugh sams so annoying, so away now. i dont like you. -.-

    have a good day everyone

    Thank you tyboogiegirl- it's just hard for me to hear people, especially girls saying the things that some people have been saying. It's like when Rihanna got beat up by Chris Brown. Girls were saying that she deserved it and stuff like that. I think it's disgusting the way we, as a whole, don't stand up to support women that go through things like this.

    And to those that are saying they can't believe Kristina stayed in a relationship with Keifer and that she doesn't have reason to be afraid of him "they weren't married": I feel sad. Women every day stay in abusive relationships. Unless you've been in one, it's hard to see why they would not stand up for themselves and fight back. A lot of times it starts with emotional abuse to make the victim feel like they have to stay. It's easy to say, "If a man ever lays a hand on me, I'm leaving" but it's an entirely different story when you're in the situation. It takes a really strong person to get away, and if you were able to get away the first time, I really applaud you. And it doesn't take marriage to make a person feel like they have to stay.
    In a time when we should take a stand against violence of any kind, we are questioning why the person stayed and crap. I think it's sad...

    This whole s/l is sickening.

    Posted by Monkey83 at Tuesday, March 16 2010 01:40 PM

    I can't wait to see how TSW play this out. If done right, it can be a very great storyline. But it's all dependent on how TPTB let it play out. I hope the "domestic violence" storyline doesn't get shadowed by Kristina lying. I really think they should show the dv side and how making false accusations impacts a lot of people. I think TPTB should show Kristina learning that what she is putting Ethan through is really wrong. And show her the seriousness of her lying. I do think, and maybe I'm just putting more faith in Kristina than is deserved, that Kristina will confess, sooner rather than later, that she lied about Ethan. I think it may be awhile before she correctly names Keifer as her abuser.

    Posted by Monkey83 at Tuesday, March 16 2010 01:42 PM

    luckyinlove-I completely agree that the s/l is sickening, but what's worse is that this is what goes on every day in real life. If this is done correctly, I will applaud TPTB for showing a very serious s/l.

    I hope they settle this Keifer/Ethan thing soon and not drag it out. . In response to what you are saying Monkey83 about Ethan, yes it was wrong for him to grab Kristina like he did, but he did admit it was wrong and he didn't mean to hurt her...unlike Keifer who bashed her to almost a deathly pulp. I just hope the writers don't drag this out and make it a non-message...

    Ok, did you see the tears in Dante's eyes today? I think he's gonna be a very good brother. I don't think he's going to be a very credible witness because I think now that he's listened to Sonny talk to Kristina I think he'll understand more about where Sonny is coming from... I'm not sure how this is going to play out with his relationship to Lulu but we'll just have to see...
    I really think Alexis need to spend more time with all of her childrem. She's so out of the loop...
    I like the fact that Johnny has come to Ethan's defense. It's more of the old, half descent Johnny we used to see before they made him all hard and cold most of the time...
    Now, if they could just find him a descent girl...
    I wonder if he'll visit Maxie in the hospital...
    I guess that's it for now. Peace.

    Monkey83, while I agree with you, it is hard if your brother has been accused of doing something this awful and NO ONE BELIEVES him because he is a guy, and there is a beat up cute little girl. When it is revealed that either a mistake was made or the girl lied for whatever reason, the media has already moved on to another story and you get a small insert in the newspaper. But forever, your brother's picture has been branded in many people's mind as an abuser. IT SUCKS SOOO BAD.

    I blame GH Writers for continue this idea that victims do not ID their attackers. When rape victims report, everyone waits for a DNA match in order to decide if we believe you. Shame on you GH. I think they could have had her refuse to say or blame it on a mugging, instead of blaming it on Ethan.

    On a soap opera note, Notice that Sonny/Alexis have offspring who have gotten away with crimes and thus do not take responsibility for what they have done.
    Kristina hit Claudia, causing her to miscarry. She never paid for that. In fact, Sonny covered it up with Alexis's help. Michael's crime is being covered up too. Just like Alexis covering up her murder of Luis Alcazar. Sonny's crimes...that is a whole other story.
    This is just second generation Corinthos and "It's not my fault".
