Stop, in the name of fatherly love.

Rants and raves for the week of June 29 – July 3:

The week got off to a slow start, but the closer we got to the Fourth of July, the more explosive things started to get. Let’s discuss what went down this week on “General Hospital.”

Back home, but for how long?
Michael returned AJ/Avery to Sonny in an attempt to make amends with his parents. He’s not ready to forgive Sonny, but it was a great first step. Michael is so much more likeable when he’s not screaming at everyone around him. I do hope the Quartermaines get ELQ back, but I don’t think Michael should return to being CEO. Lucy was right that he has some growing left to do. He needs to focus on being young and his relationship with Sabrina right now.

One person not happy about Avery’s return home is Denise/Ava. Oh boy! She needs to cool it with her persistence in seeing that baby otherwise she’ll blow her cover. I have a feeling Denise and that baby are going to disappear at some point, and it will destroy what little progress Michael and Sonny have made.

They grow up so fast.
The performance of the week has to go to Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer) for putting his father Nikolas in his place. I was so impressed with his speech about what he learned from the fire and his burns about being ugly on the inside, and it is obvious the visit from his ghost mom taught him something. Unfortunately it seems his father isn’t going to listen.

Port Charles math: 1 + 1 + 1 = 0.
Michael tells Jake that his speech on honor is exactly like something Jason would say. Jake remembers that Spinelli also thought he reminded him of Jason. Jake has had dreams that Danny is his child, and that he was in bed with Sam. Ehhhh! Let’s not connect the dots and just forget about it. This show is so frustrating at times.
