    Noah mentions Summer's crack about how he doesn't know her. He thinks she's weirded out they're together. I have to agree with Summer Noah is being blindsided out of loving Courtney when Noah is being pretty hard headed by the truth that Summer is right that Noah does not even know Courtney at all. Noah actually told courtney what Summer said to noah I am just wondering what Courtney might actually say to Summer now. what are you thinking of telling noah that you do not know courtney any more are you trying to ruin my relationship with Noah? So noah is reassuring Courtney that courtney is weirded out that they are together.

    Noah mentions Summer's crack about how he doesn't know her.Courtney mentions Summer's birthday but Zach texts to get together. So the first sign that courtney gets is a text to Zack to get together. noah you are a fool for sure Courtney is now showing signs that courtney can not be trusted while texting another guy that is not you. Courtney just want to change the subject to summer's birthday is coming soon that is a second sign that Courtney does not need to be trusted by you noah.

    Courtney mentions Summer's birthday but Zach texts to get together. Courtney ignores it. So courtney ignores the first so courtney can be trusted in Noah's eyes that courtney would not be hiding Zack from Noah. Why does Zack want together with courtney for any reason right in front of Noah without knowing that courtney is getting texts from another person that is Zack?Courtney says Zach is family, but he's messed up and embarrassing. courtney tells Summer that Zack is family to Summer but can not tell Noah that because? So courtney is telling summer that Zack is embarrassing and noah being part of her life is not that embarrassing too tell Noah the truth who Zack really is.

    Avery agrees to work things out so that Leslie's plate is cleared. She tries to guess the surprise and realizes he's going to propose. So Avery has to be noisy to where Neil and leslie is concerned. Avery has to know everything to why Neil is proposing to leslie. Since when Avery have to pry in a love affair that is not even Avery's love life. Neil want to make sure that Leslie's work is cleared by Avery so there will be a surprise around Christmas for Neil wanting to marry Leslie.Neil shows up - he needs her help to set-up a Christmas surprise for Leslie. I have a feeling that Neil will be turned down that leslie is not ready to marry Neil for all the wrong reason that Neil would prefer to have a family with leslie.

    Watching JT - Thad Lockinbill (Victoria's real life husband) on Major Crimes tonight

    Paul is working day and night, night and day, to solve the Smarmine Basko murder case, someone apparently no one cared about, was escaped from jail himself and had tried to kill the Baldwins, and is apparently NOT DEAD.

    Paul YOUR evidence has been tampered with, the crime scene photos are "missing" and you can't even get a hold of the coroner...let it go, investigate Delia's case instead.

    Wouldn't you think with all this going on, Fen would answer his phone when Michael calls him?

    Now Paul's got the evidence that sobriety chip to try to throw Fen back in jail for killing the man, who stalked his mother, tried to kill his parents. Way to go Paul.

    Lauren got a he11 of a lot of nerve to set there and jump all over Leslie and blame her, Lauren Leslie is not the one who brought Smarmine into your families life and your bed, pull out your compact, look in your mirror, you see that red head? That's who you should blame and be PO at.

    Poor Neil, he goes to Avery to tell her the happy news about the secret proposal to Leslie, and Avery starts blabbering on and on about her failed relationship with Nick, then he goes to Jack who starts blabbering on about Phyllis. Neil looked depressed after talking to those two, like he needed a drink. lol

    Jack and Jill WOW, the company they are striving so hard to discredit is searching for a cancer cure, Kay would be so proud. Jack says "they are using questionable treatment options" uhmmmmm JACK, isn't Phyllis in a TRIAL facility, and when you couldn't walk, weren't you going to get involved in TRIALS????? And isn't your BFF/sponsor Neil, the guy who's daughter had cancer? Jackie YOU are going to be getting a Christmas visit from ghost John and coal in your stocking. And Jill, you selfish piece of work, here I thought you loved Cane like a son, what about his wife Lily.?

    Taking out a company who is researching a cure for cancer, REALLY that is the best Jack and Jill could come up with to take out Victor, personally I hope the fall down the hill.

    Rumor has it...Noah catches Kyle taking pics at NE, and Victor sends Kyle to jail for corporate espionage. That is how Kyle exits.

    So writers, you mean to tell me with all these guilty folks walking around GC, Kyle ends up going to jail...SMH

    Hey Kyle, come up with bi-polar, gives you a pass to steal, commit arson, and just basically do what the he11 ever you want for years. LOL.

    Well Courtney the alien no one knows anything about gets another text from Zach..."meet me now" well I'm not even going to worry to much about that, because I know it's going to be YEARS before we ever find out who the he11 Zach is and what that is all about.
