    Truth and Consequences.

    Monday, April 05 2010
    Alexis does some damage, Kristina finally admits the truth, and Maya meets Steve.

    Max stops Michael from leaving the house on the island, but Michael tries to reason with him about how Sonny can't go to prison. Max understands, but tells him he has to wait it out.

    In the office, Jason tells Sonny he needs to flee if he truly believes Maxie will give Michael up as a witness. Sonny has to consider all his kids and thinks Diane can turn things around for him. Carly thinks he wants to stay in town for Dante, but Sonny counters it's about all his kids and declares he's not leaving. Jason decides to go to the hospital to see how Maxie did with her testimony. Carly tells Sonny he has a skewed take on Dante telling him his son hates him and will never forgive him for shooting him. Sonny tells her he won't give up on his son and then declares her testimony will get him acquitted.

    At the hospital, Maxie says, under oath, that she doesn't know if Michael was with Sonny the night Claudia was killed because it was rainy and dark. Once done, Maxie tells Spinelli Jason owes her big time as he appears in the doorway saying, "I know." Maxie recounts her testimony and Jason thanks her. After Jason leaves, Maxie asks Spinelli for confirmation that Michael killed Claudia and he confirms it.

    In the car, Dante tells Lucky he wants to talk to Kristina again about Kiefer and Lucky agrees they need proof to nail the teen. Dante warns they both have something personal invested in this so they have to be careful how they proceed.

    Alexis drives Kristina to the hospital and cries as she recalls running into Kiefer and then finding Kristina bloody and beaten. Kiefer appears on the road and a disoriented Alexis hits him, but keeps driving.

    Maya comes to the hospital and meets with Steve about interning at the hospital. Edward walks up and throws his influence around to convince Steve to give Maya special treatment. Maya assures Steve she doesn’t want any of that and Steve makes it clear to Edward Maya won't get preferential treatment. If Edward doesn't like that, then he can send Maya to Mercy hospital. Maya tells Steve this is her call and then demands Edward back off. She tells Steve she is Maya Ward, not Maya Quartermaine, and Steve is impressed. Alexis brings Kristina in and Steve leads her into a cubicle.

    Dante and Lucky come to the lake house and find it empty, but see blood. Dante calls forensics and Lucky calls Ethan, but can't get a hold of him. As forensics comb the house, Lucky gets a call from the hospital learning Kristina has been brought in. Dante is furious, but assures Lucky he won't do anything to jeopardize the case.

    Diane comes to the office to tell Sonny and Carly Maxie came through for them. Sonny then gets a call from Alexis about Kristina. After Sonny has left, Carly tells Diane she thinks Kiefer is the one who beat Kristina. Diane responds if Sonny seeks revenge it's all over for his case.

    Sonny arrives at the hospital as Steve examines Kristina. Alexis comes out to tell Sonny what happened, but urges him to stay out of the room because he scares their daughter. Alexis returns to her daughter who cries as she apologizes for making a mess of everything. Outside the room, Sonny tells Jason Ethan has to die tonight. Dante arrives to check in on his sister and Steve pops in to report there are no broken bones but they are waiting for more tests and she needs to stay overnight. Sonny listens in as Dante gets Kristina to admit Kiefer was the one to hit her.

    Kiefer appears lifeless on the side of the road, but moves his hand and head.

    Skye walks into the Q living room to find Ethan rummaging around. She's hostile towards him because of the Kristina situation. Ethan explains what really happened and Skye apologizes if she jumped to conclusions, but says whoever beat Kristina needs to pay. Maya comes to the mansion, as Ethan swipes some items from the room, and accusingly tells him Kristina was beaten again.

    Jason meets with Lucky at the Haunted Star and tells him Ethan is out of time.

    Next on General Hospital:

    Sam and Molly find Kiefer.

    Kiefer's condition worsens.

    Dante and Sonny have an angry confrontation.

    You know, sometimes I just have to laugh when I stop to think about this show. This "secret" that Michael actually killed Claudia is only a SLIGHTLY worse kept secret than Dante being an undercover cop or Claudia being involved in the hit that got Michael shot.

    Dumb Alexis asked Kristina if Kiefer did this to her. Did she not see him run out the door, or is she just stuck on Ethan.

    Now they have Skey and Maya spewing lies about Ethan. They have been in town all of two minutes and don't know squat about what they are talking about.

    Why didn't Alexis tell Sonny about Kiefer running out the door? That fool Sonny is still going after Ethan and talking about killing him. Now Jason is on the bandwagon. Then if they were to kill Ethan and get busted they will want the entire town to lie for them so they could get off.

    Alexis is at Kristina's bedside acting like the cat got her tongue. Can't tell anybody what she saw. When she thought it was Ethan, you couldn't stop her lips from flapping. Maybe she is in shock from running down Kiefer with her car. Let's see how Ms. Upstanding citizen handles this. Sicne she is all about the truth, surely she will confess.

    *Skye, not Skey.

    I guess the fact the storyline is concluding is consolation.

    Can someone tell me why Skye is back? Luke is taken, Jax is taken? Where is Lila Rae? What value is she bringing to the show? Why is Ethan stealing from the Q's since his dad lives there, and he could too, if he wanted?

    By the way, the Davis women (or should I say Cassadine spawns) really have to work on their driving skills. It is not safe on the road with those women around. Plus, they don't believe in rendering aid when they strike you.

    Carly, shut up about Dante. Sonny wanted Claudia dead because she got Michael shot. Sonny shot his own son Dante. Can you see why he would be just a little pissed off about that? Can you see why Olivia would be mad too? He shot him point blank in the chest.
    Sonny doesn't care that he just ordered Jason to shoot/kill Luke's son (his so called friend). It's okay to shoot other people's kids, just not a Corinthos kid.

    Ummm, can we get some kind of apology from Kristina to Ethan?

    Hi everyone:

    Well at last, the brat has told the truth. Of course her daddy has already condemened Ethan to death and her mother has run down her actual attacker, but can't seem to get the words out...go figure.

    Was Alexis driving a Toyota Prius? I see a defense, a runaway Toyota. lol.

    Blessed Diva, I suspect that Kristina will apologize to Ethan in her own teenage way. It's Sonny, Sam and Alexis who really need to make apologies, if you ask me. Sam especially was so obnoxious. But what punishment will be bestowed upon Kristina because of her lies? Probably nothing.

    Off Topic, Blessed Diva, how wonderful that your husband has joined you in this soap. Perhaps he'll join all of us here on the blog. Would love to read his take on this show.

    Cowboy: They not only have Maya and Skye spewing lies about Kiefer, but the cheif of staff, Dr. Steve Weber, made the comment to have Ethan picked up for questioning. Maybe he should worry about giving medical aid, and leave the police work, up to the police.JMO

    BlessedDiva - re: your post of 1:38 PM - sing it sister! LOL "Cassadine spawns" was perfect.

    Sometimes the hypocrisy of Sonny Corinthos is just too much to take. Michael got shot BY ACCIDENT after an unpredictable riccochet because of events Claudia was involved with, and for that, she deserved to die, no questions asked or mercy shown. But Sonny shoots his own son in the chest ON PURPOSE and expects everyone to forgive and forget and be one big happy family, because, hey, he didn't know Dante was his son when he shot him. Oh, that's right, he's Sonny Corinthos, so the same rules don't apply to him, do they?

    Posted by Blesseddiva at Monday, April 05 2010 01:56 PM

    Umm, goodluck getting him to join the blog. But he is really, really into the show now. I had to explain about Mary Mae and Edward. I had to explain Skye's connection to the Quartermaines (or lack thereof) and also her connection to Jax.
    I am not surprised since he LOVED Sopranos, that he would love GH. I only wish he had watched it when we had the Guest Appearance of Max & Milo's Dad. That was one of the best guest appearances. It was hilarious!

    He doesn't like Sam though. I think if he had watched early, he would have understood her history with Jason. I don't think the current relationship is a good reflection of how good it was back then. I keep trying to explain, but he wants her to be gone.
