    A Means to an End.

    Wednesday, May 19 2010
    Jason turns himself in, Helena has a plan, Nikolas and Luke worry and Patrick is jealous.


    In the park, Claire continues to babble on about her biological clock and recognizes that Lucky is a kind man and devoted father. She thinks he is the kind of man every woman hopes to find. The fact that Lucky is divorced is brought up and Claire wonders if he still cares about Elizabeth. He explains their past and how she cheated on him with his brother. Claire is dumbstruck at how well he's taking it, but he assures her he was plenty self-destructive at first. She thanks him for listening to her and says if he ever decides to have more kids to give her a call. She then clumsily leaves.



    At the Metro Court, Nikolas continues to pressure Warren to leave Alexis and Kristina alone. Warren intends on making them pay and no threat will stop him. Carly walks in as things get heated between the two men and she asks them to keep their voices down. Nikolas suggests Warren drop the case, but Warren declares it is far from over. After he leaves, Nikolas fills Carly in on what's going on. Carly thinks it's ironic that all of Sonny's kids are hurting and he's the only one not stepping up to the plate to help them.


    Nikolas asks Lucky to meet him outside somewhere and tells him Helena is gone, which could mean trouble. Lucky dismisses his fears, but Nikolas thinks she is plotting something. Lucky offers to have Luke call him if he sees him, but Nikolas just tells him to forget it.


    In prison, Michael lashes out at Dante for the way he handled things, especially where Morgan is concerned. Michael thinks he's just doing damage control with Sonny now, but Dante insists he won't give up until he is free.



    Frank the guard comes to Michael's cell and threatens him.



    Dante and Lulu meet up in the park, after Dante helps a pregnant teenager gather her things. They comment on the responsibility the girl has ahead of her and how Dante's mother was roughly the same age when she got pregnant with him. They talk about Michael, but Lulu seems distracted.



    Lulu goes to the Metro Court to pick up food for Kate and sees Carly working at the bar. They talk about Jason turning himself in and Lulu offers to wait with her. Carly accepts her offer because she could use the distraction. Lulu tells her cousin how responsible Dante feels and how hard he's working to get Michael released. Lulu also brings up the girl in the park and Carly assumes she hasn't told Dante about the abortion. Lulu doesn’t know how to tell him, but when she does, she fears it will change how he feels about her.



    Sam and Jason enjoy themselves outside at the cabin, but when Sam wants to go on another hike, Jason says they don't have time. They go inside where Sam makes lunch, much to Jason's surprise. It doesn’t turn out so well and Sam is upset, but he tells her they had a great day. He loves her for who she is and for standing by him through all of this. Jason feels like he's doing the right thing, but he worries for the people he's leaving behind. He asks Sam for her help with Spinelli because he will have a lot of free time on his hands, which could be a bad thing. She tells him not to worry because she will keep them both so busy at work that it will take her mind off him - just a little. When it's time for them to leave, Jason apologizes for leaving her alone, but Sam tells him she'll be thinking about him and visiting him all the time. He will never forget this and promises to bring her back to the cabin when he gets out.


    Jason and Sam come to the police station where Jason turns himself in to Dante and Claire.


    Patrick overhears Steve and Lisa making plans in the locker room and angrily walks in saying he's sick of waiting for Lisa to consult on their case. Later at the hub, Steve confronts Patrick about acting like a jealous boyfriend as Robin walks up wondering what's going on. Steve covers and says they were arguing about a case. After Steve walks away, Patrick admits he was wrong. Later, Robin talks to Steve about counseling AIDS and HIV patients because she wants to give back.



    Patrick and Lisa meet back up in the locker room where he admits he was jealous seeing her flirt with another guy. They discuss their past, but he says he is happily married and he can't tell her who to hang out with. He says her personal life is her own and leaves, as Lisa smirks.



    Ethan finds Luke creating a romantic setting for him and Tracy on the Haunted Star for their anniversary. He instructs his son to pick Tracy up at the Quartermaines and to give him a heads up on her mood. As Luke waits for his wife, Skye boards the boat and they discuss how they were together before he got hitched. Luke wants to keep the memories alive and moves in for a kiss, but Skye knows he loves Tracy and wishes them both luck. Ethan returns after Skye has left and learns Tracy never showed up. Ethan says Tracy wasn't at the mansion either and that the ELQ jet is still in the hanger. Luke thinks maybe she's nursing her grudge, but then thinks she could be in real trouble.



    An imprisoned Tracy wonders what Helena wants from her. Helena says she's just an annoyance and a means to an end, which is Luke. She has a plan and in order for it to work, she needs both of them.


    Next on General Hospital:

    Mayor Floyd interferes with Jason's arrest.

    Sonny admits he wants to be a family with Olivia and Dante.

    Carly looks into Dante's past.

    I love Helena, but I also love Tracy. Man, who do I choose Queen of Evil or Queen of Mean?

    If Jason had married Sam, then he could have conjugal visits. It wouldn't be so bad.

    Lulu sure is stupid. Spencers are the most grudge holding people ever, and obviously Dante is giving it to you good because you have lost your senses! More ammunition for Carly to do her thing.

    Lisa was using Steve to get to PAtrick, and it is working. Yikes, Robin. Maybe you can stop looking at old pictures and diaries and focus on what you have in front of you like Emma & Patrick.

    Almost forgot to post. I was on farmville. Almost signed off before posting.

    Well, Mr. Bauer stood up to Prince Cassidine. Maybe he should have had granny rough him up. Both Nikolas and Alexis know that if someone had run down one of their kids and killed them, they would want revenge too, and not community service.

    It was nice to see my Tracy today. I was worried about her.

    Jason and Sam were cute today.

    I was glad to hear Steven called Patrick out, and told him he was acting like a jealous lover. And why is it everytime Lisa comes out of the shower, Patrick is right there.

    I guess it was too much to ask to have two days of Dante without Lulu being there. And Miss Blabber mouth gave Carly all the information she needs to take her down.

    is lisa ...a doctor..so poor that she has to shower several times a day at the hospital?? does her apartment have no bathing facilities?...does she get that dirty?...one of my kids is a doctor and i doubt he ever showers at work unless something unusual happens or on the few occasions he has to stay overnight...sheesh!

    Hi everyone:

    Ring: I agree with you. I too think it was demeaning, to have Clarie act so ridiculous and so out of character. To have this accomplished women, second guessing her choices and exposing her feelings, to an almost stranger, was unbleivable. Today, when leaving Lucky on the park bench and telling him if he wanted more children, to give her a call....I thought, why not just jump him now.LOL. I must admit, it was a welcome reprieve from all the dark and sad, s/l's that have been blanketing the screen lately.

    Patrick is an immature idiot. If I were Robin, I would say good riddance. The locker room is another thing, I find hard to believe. My husband works in a large teaching hospital, which I would assume, would be similar to GH. I know for a fact, the male and female surgeons don't use the same facilities. Can you imagine, the risk of liability for sexual harassment claims, this would put the hospital in.

    Lulu, Lulu, Lulu, you are one stupid, betraying fool. She gave Carly, just the ammo she was looking for. I almost felt sorry for her...but then they showed Jason going to jail, and Michael about to be beaten, by officer Bone Head, and it reminded me of how she is all about Lulu. Family and friends be dammed...Bring it on Carly.

    ***OFF TOPIC***

    Lucky: So good to hear from you. 35 week..way to go. You make us mom's with twins proud.

    4my: Johnny's penthouse is blinding. From a desiger standpoint, there is way to much going on. Too many colors and not enough repetition. The color pallet, should consist of two, maybe three main hues...then one or two accent colors, used repeatedly throughout the joining living areas. This would give it a cohesive look. What I really dislike about the place, is it is very artificial. Fake bird of paradise, other fake flowers and nothing organic in shape or texture. Professionally, I have learned to respect and admire good design, even when it's not my personal taste or preference. Johnny's PH is hard to like.

    Hi rans.......:)

    I'm so sick of Carly right now...we have always had a love hate relationship. Self righteous the way she talks about Sonny! He has stepped up...she slept arouund with his enemy..Luis Alcazar...GH writers needs to be fired....Why is everything Sonny's fault? She is a terrible Mom rather she met Sonny or not & always places the blame on someone else but her... Kristina needs to be recast, she is seriously getting on my nerves...she gets beat down..It's sonny fault..Oh I broke a nail...it's Sonny's fault. Then Carly...she will regret this...I demand a recast...I would love for the 2nd Carly to come back.

    Faith,
    It doesn't matter if Tamara Braun (2nd Carly) came back or not. It is the material, not the actress.GH Writers often get like this.

    I like Kristina and Everything is Sonny's fault.

    Skye and Luke's meeting together today reminded me of a time when I had begun to date my would be husband. I agreed to meet him at his condo in the city. And when he welcomed me at the door he became rather physical. And I looked at him and said, "Martin, you are a dirty old man." And smilingly, he looked back and said, "Don't call me old." I'm sure it's an old joke but at the time I squealed with laughter. And, that's why I think we all love Luke. He's a dirty but lovable, old man. Same with Edward.

    Hi all.

    Lulu just gave Carly her ammo w/a shiny red bow. OH Carly is going to blow those two out of the water.

    Jasam was so sweet today. Eating the last meal. LOL He was trying to be nice.

    cowboys...oh I would love Helena to go after Mr. Bauer. Now that would be something worth watching.

    I wish Robin would have walked into the locker room today. I don't think she would be too pleased w/her hubby talking to a towel wrapped Lisa. Oh man Lisa is going to steal Patty right from under Robin. She is to busy reading those damn diaries to see what's going on.

    Oh I hear Claire maybe sticking around. Her & Lucky.....
    Maybe????

    I know this is soapland but it's just drastic for Jason to go to prison to protect Michael. You would think that Sonny would have mob alliances already in prison that could do that, or just bribe a guard or something. And seems like that Sonny, Jason, Dante, Lucky and Claire would all work together with finding something on the judge, or some other solution before Jason decides to go prison himself. That should be the last resort. I just wonder how this is all going to play out. Even if they get Michael out, it's not going to get Jason out and Claire told Jason that. Perhaps Jason will save the Warden's life or something and they let him out. Be interesting to see.

    Hello All:

    Today's episode was ok. As much as I like Dante he should get Michael out of prison and forget about him. Michael is a lost cause. Dante made a fatal error when he tried to help him in the first place. Giving help to someone who doesn't ask for it is not help.

    Carly is smooth and unfortunatly Lulu is a moron. However, it would not be devastating for Dante to hook up with Brook Lynn. The only potential loser in Carly's game is Carly and Lulu. I would be interesting if Claire and Lucky hook-up. Elizabeth is more trouble than she is worth. Let Nicholas have her.

    The writers are trying to reconcile Dante and Sonny. Believe me I hope they do. Does anyone think he was a better working with Sonny than being a cop?

    Warren Bauer needs to watch who is messing with. Does he have any concept the power that the Cassadines wield. His grief and his disguting son will cause he and his wife more trouble than they want.

    I do hope Jason gets that idiot prison guard. Does the gaurd think he will hut Michael with carte blance. If he injuries Michael in any way he will be a dead man walking.

    Robin needs to leave her past alone. The last time I checked she has a family. Patrick need to keep it in his pants.

    Can't wait to see Luke vs. Helena!!!!
