    Give Yourself To The Experience.

    Friday, July 23 2010
    Both Franco and Warren's time runs out.

    Nikolas, Lucky and Maxie see Franco's video in the hospital who tells them to give themselves over to the experience. He adds they have no choice if they want to find the baby. Franco mentions the number 66 and Nikolas realizes his son's ID bracelet included the number 66 and that's why Franco took him.


    Maxie comes to Shirley's room, but learns from Elizabeth she passed away. Maxie then updates Elizabeth on what's going on in the rest of the hospital.



    Elizabeth finds Nikolas and Lucky and watches the video of Franco with them. She's not sure what his cryptic comments mean and wonders what he's done with her son. Lucky says they need to figure out what they do know and thinks they need to find anything in the hospital with the number 66 on it. Nikolas tells Elizabeth they can handle it if she wants to go sit with Shirley. She lets him know Shirley is gone, but hopes she's looking over Aiden until they can find him.



    Near the nurses' station, Warren shoots Mac and Ethan. Michael gets protective and Kristina cowers as he turns his attention to her. Before Warren can shoot Kristina, Mac garners enough strength to shoot him from behind and then falls back to the floor.


    Carly and Patrick hear the shots and Carly is desperate to get to Michael. Patrick agrees to go with her in case someone needs help.


    Steve and Matt tend to Ethan and Mac respectively. Maya cowers in shock as Olivia rushes to help Steve with Ethan. Steve instructs Michael to get to the ER to tell them people have been shot and they need gurneys stat. Patrick and Carly come to the scene and tend to Warren. Carly then goes to Kristina as Warren whispers to the girl, "This is all your fault," and then dies. Michael returns with Lisa and more hospital workers. Robin and Maxie come to the shooting scene and panic over seeing Mac. Patrick consoles Robin, as Matt assures Maxie he will save Mac. Maxie follows Matt to urge him to do better than his best because Mac is the only family she has left and she needs him. Olivia gets dizzy as she talks with Steve. After Steve walks away, Maya thanks Olivia for stepping in when she couldn't. Olivia notes Ethan wasn't the first person Maya's seen get shot.


    Carly brings Kristina and Michael to another hospital room as they try and process what just happened. Both Carly and Michael try to convince Kristina none of this was her fault.


    As Patrick and Matt operate on Mac, Maxie and Robin discuss the man who raised them. They know they haven't been around for him lately, but they are confident they will get the chance to show him how much they love him.



    In L.A., Jason and Dante peruse Franco's exhibit and run into the museum curator who is with Kalup. Dante and the curator go to look at security footage, as Kalup tells Jason Franco is waiting for him to find him. Jason sees Franco who grabs a woman and holds a gun to her head. The crowd gathers, thinking it's all part of the show, as Franco tells Jason he can help him take a life or help him save one. Things intensify as the woman finally realizes it might not be performance art anymore. Franco mentions Michael and the prison showers. He directs Jason's attention to a video of Carter, who he says will live on through his work. Franco takes off while Jason is distracted. When Franco's cameraman privately questions Franco's actions, Franco kills him. Back in the middle of the show, Dante sees Lulu and Jason takes off after spotting Franco. Lucky calls Dante to update him on what's going on at the hospital. Lucky tells Dante Jason can't kill Franco or else they might not find the baby. After hanging up, Dante approaches Lulu wondering what she's doing there. Lulu explains she's there to protect him from Jason. She doesn't think he will do anything to Dante as long as she's there because then he'd have to answer to Carly.



    Kalup performs as Jason follows Franco into a stairwell and chases after him. Franco goes up to the roof and seemingly falls over the edge. He lies in a pool of blood on the number 66 in front of Dante, Lulu and the rest of the crowd, as Jason peers over the ledge.


    Next on General Hospital:

    Lucky gets a lead on the baby.

    Robin and Maxie wait for word on Mac.

    Skye goes after Alcazar's money.

    Isn't Lulu supposed to be looking after Michael? What's she doing in LA? Besides, with her there now Dante can't do his job properly cause he's going to be worried about keeping her safe. And the dummy didn't do sh!t! He got the call from Lucky and told Lulu that they can't let Jason kill Franco cause he knows where the baby is. But the fools just stand there as if they are there to watch the guy on stage and not find Franco! AArgh! Dante doesn't do any police work, he lets Jason do all the work while he's standing around...

    This was the best episode I've seen in a very long time.

    How could Warren shoot all those innocent people, knowing good'en well his dirtbag son was guilty. Maybe Warren did it because he knew it was his fault his son turned out the way he did.

    If I was in a fun house and the host said one of us will not survive, I will be getting out of Dodge. I don't play like that. And don't even hold a fake gun to my head. Don't know what that lady was thinking.

    Glad Mack shot that s.o.b. dead.

    Did anybody notice Olivia running to assist Stephen. That was on ugly run. Then she almost fainted. Don't tell me that Olivia is going to be pregnant. And poor Maya she was in shock. It looks like Ethan was shot in the neck. I think this will bring Ethan and Maya closer.

    I want someone to catch Franco and give him 66 hits upside his head, but not before he has a chance to snatch Lulu. Poor Dante can't even go on assignment with her triffling behind sniffing around him.

    I agree with Kristina when she said all of this was her fault. Then here we go again with Carly and Michael saying it's not her fault.

    That camera man asked one question too many of Franco and gave up the ghost. That was it for him.

    Maxie had me in tears when she was begging Matt to save Mack. They have too many many with similiar names on this show. You have Matt, Max and Mack.

    How could Elizabeth run like that all around the hostpital after giving birth.

    If that was Franco that fell to his death at the end, I think he jumped and wants everybody to think that Jason pushed him.

    nat21, Maybe she thinks Michael is up Dante's arse.

    bet Olivia is preggers!

    today's show was pretty exciting; but I don't think Franco is dead. Why was Dante standing around and not behind Jason, telling him about the baby. And OMG, Lulu, what the heck is she doing there?
    And yes, Kristina, it is your fault that it came to this, and how many innocent people she's hurt and killed.
    Shadybrook should be her next stop!

    Today's WTF moment:

    "Lulu explains she's there to protect him from Jason. She doesn't think he will do anything to Dante as long as she's there because then he'd have to answer to Carly."

    Seriously, must TIIC write EVERY female character as this clueless? Even if Lulu weren't "secretly" on Carly's sh*t list, does Lulu really think that Carly would take her side over Jason's? Come on now, even Lulu can't be that dense.


    Slightly Off Topic:

    Let’s all play a game. Below is an excerpt of the interview Guza did with TV Guide Canada -- the one that mamajj referenced in yesterday’s posts. It’s only one question, but let’s see how many bizarre or just flat out wrong statements we can find in Guza’s response:

    “TVG: Dante and Lucky have brought a new moral compass to the show.
    RG: We’ve really tried so hard to do that too. When you have all these mob guys or anti-heroes on a show, what tends to happen is your authority figures all become clowns. We decided to reinforce the police department right away with the best people we could find, one would be Dante and the other was Lucky. We’re going to make them honorable, good guys but we’re also going to make them really good at what they do. Not the 10-millionth scene of Jason being arrested refusing to talk and having him being released! I’m pretty pleased with how that has played out. And that’s largely because of Dominic Zamprogna and Jonathan Jackson.”

    I’ve got 4 – (1) “reinforce the police department right away with the best people we could find,” (seriously, why not just start with letting the existing PCPD actually solve a crime in PC instead of Jason solving all of them -- oh wait, he’s still doing that with Franco, isn’t he? And if that’s what Guza REALLY wants to do, how does he explain Ronnie?) (2) “We’re going to make them honorable, good guys,” (that just happen to perjure themselves about who shot them [Dante] or who have for years looked the other way regarding Sonny and Jason’s criminal activities [Lucky]) together with (3) “also going to make them really good at what they do.” (okay, that one just gets a WTF. Good at what they do? I think we’ve covered ad nauseum how bad Dante’s police work was regarding the “case” he built against Sonny) (4) “Not the 10-millionth scene of Jason being arrested refusing to talk and having him being released!” (I’m sorry, other than when Jason demanded to be sent to prison to protect Michael, when, exactly, did we see the police, Dante and Lucky included, not do exactly that??!!?)

    And that was just ONE of Guza’s mindboggling responses. The only sentence that was even remotely accurate was the one praising the work of DZ and JJ with the wretched material they’ve been given! For those who don’t like Dante, imagine how much more unbearable his scenes would be to watch if someone with less acting talent than DZ was in the role. Serial Drama posted a brilliant blog about this whole interview, with a link to the actual interview, if you’re interested. But I warn you not to try to read it all at once or you might suffer Guza-esque brain damage. Apparently the “writer” who did the interview has a Facebook page where he invited readers to comment on the interview, but now he’s taken down all the comments because they were almost 100% negative.

    Here’s another gem by the interviewer,” After a decade of upsetting and frustrating critics and fans with his unimaginative reliance on violence and rewarding criminals instead of its heroes, it’s certainly about time Guza awoke from his one-dimensional coma.” HUH??? This guy can’t POSSIBLY be watching the same show as I am.

    However, by far, the WORST think Guza said was to denigrate the brilliant writing of Claire Labine when she was in charge of GH -- you know, back when we had Robin & Stone, the Nurse’s Ball, the start of the Sonny and Brenda love story (or their completely dysfunctional, co-dependent, self-destructive “mutual co-existence” [I can’t even call it a relationship], depending on your viewpoint, of course!), when there was actual ROMANCE (not cheap sex on a prison conjugal visit bed with questionably clean bed linens) and humor along with the drama, and NOT the gratuitous violence that we have today. I’m not surprised that Mac & Ethan got shot, I mean, it’s been what, like 4 whole days since someone’s been shot on GH (seems that way to me anyway), so they were pretty much due, right?


    *************SPOILER TALK**********************



    mamajj – Seems that Skye is the first female casualty of the Brenda return. Not that they’ve given her much of a storyline since she returned anyway, but seriously. So much talent wasted again by Guza the Hack! Grrrrrrrrrrrr…



    ************END SPOILER TALK******************

    OK THIS IS GETTING INTERESTING!!! FIRST OF ALL, FRANCO IS NOT DEAD. HE WILL BE BACK. JASON, MICHAEL, CARLY, AND SONNY NEED A BREAK FROM ALL THIS BAD STUFF THAT IS HAPPENING. I AM GLAD WARREN BOWER DIED HE WAS GETTING ON MY NERVES. I HAPPY THAT BRENDA IS RETURNING, BUT WHY NOW I BET SHE IS LINKED TO FRANCO IN SOME KIND OF CRAZY WAY. HOPEFULLY HER SECRET IS NOT SO BAD AS THEY HAVE PROTRAYED IT. I HOPE SONNY DOESN'T GIVE CLAIRE A BABY, THAT WOULD BE A BIG MISTAKE HE HAS ENOUGH KIDS!! I WANT HIM AND OLIVIA TOGETHER. BY THE WAY IS THE REASON SHE (OLIVIA) GOT DIZZY IS BECAUSE SHE MAYBE PREGNANT!! I THINK THAT SOME KIND OF WAY MAXIE WILL FIND OUT THAT PATRICK SLEPT WITH LISA AND TELL ROBIN.SHE DESERVES TO KNOW THE TRUE BECAUSE SHE WAS OUT BEING A GOOD SAMARITAN WHILE HER HUSBAND IS BACK HOME CHEATING ON HER WITH A CO-WORKER. LISA IS SO BOLD SHE WILL PROBABLY TELL ROBIN HERSELF AND TURN INTO SOME KIND OF NUT JOB. I HOPE CARLY GETS HER REVENGE ON DANTE AND LULU BECASUE THEY DESERVE IT. ESPECIALLY LULU SHE HAS BEEN SUCH A ASS SINCE MICHAEL HAS BEEN RELEASED. SHE KNOWS BETTER THAN TO MESS CARLY THAT'S MY GIRL!! I DON'T WANT BROOK LYNN WITH DANTE. I WANT HER WITH JOHNNY BUT HE WILL PROBABLY TREAT HER LIKE SONNY DID CLAUDIA.I AM GONNA KEEP WATCHING GH I LOVE THE STORY-LINE AND THE CHARACTERS!! HEY GH IF YOU NEED A WRITER I AM RIGHT HERE!!

    All this build up for this? What the hell? this is like a bad movie!

    Lulu came to protect a COP...what a crazy little obsessed b*tch. Seriously, what is Carly going to be mad that her best friend killed Dante, the man she blames for Michael going to prison? Lulu is so clueless.

    I have to ask why GH brought such a good actor like Warren to let it end like this. I guess Mac let Alexis go and Ethan was the person the Bauers thought hurt Kristina.
    Well Kristina, see what your lies cost!

    I know 66 is in his tag, but really? no finally message to Ronnie? I don't get it.

    can someone explain to Michael that going to Prison doesn't make him bulletproof?

    Posted by ROCKYLOVE at Friday, July 23 2010 01:52 PM

    So i'm begining to see a pattern here.
    Whenever I want a couple to actually get together, gh decides to go a completly different route out of spite. (A few short examples: I wanted Liz's baby to be Lucky's so as to not kill Jasam, we saw how that went. I wanted Maxie to choose Johnny over Spinelli. Didn't happen. I've wanted them to kill off helana so many times and somehow that old bat keeps coming back.) What did I do?
    Olivia is more than likely preggers with Johnny's kid so now we get a whole other dante and sonny thing. Why? There are plenty of people both their ages to make things work better. What happened to passion, what happened to drama, now Johnny's going to end up just like he did with Lulu. Did he not want someone to stop trying to change him? Didn't want to stop apologizing for who he was? What happened to that Johnny, this one sucks and if Olivia is pregnant that is total horse pucky!
    Now that I'm done ranting....
    Yay Mac!!!! I knew he had it in him. Someone other than Jason has to save the day once in a while.
    What did I say, I said the break from Lulu was gonna be short lived and low and behold here she was. Protect Dante from Jason?! What planet does she live on.
    The chick that Franco held a gun to, was she stupid? I don't care what he calls art, that would not be going down if that was me.
    How sweet that Micheal wants to protect his sister. Kind of reminds me how Sonny use to feel about Courtney.
    I am so ready to see them do something with Ethan. I figure he deserves a little romance after being branded the candyman. And I think Maya is the girl to give it to him.

    THEY PLAYED MAD WORLD AGAIN
