Rants and raves for the week of August 15 – 21:

This week was much better for Port Charles compared to last week’s snoozefest. Some big secrets were finally exposed, though not the one most “General Hospital” viewers want to see brought to light. That would of course be Jason’s reveal. Hopefully it’s not too far off. Let’s discuss!

Hayden’s memories.
It is now obvious that Hayden isn’t faking her amnesia, and this was a great little story that kept viewers guessing the first week or so she was awake. It is also a smart way to re-invent this character and keep her around long term. She’s now a much nicer person than she was initially, and watching her struggle with her memories actually makes it easy to sympathize with her. As hot as she and Nikolas were, she needs to get away from the Cassadine and fast. He will do nothing but corrupt her back to the way she was.

Brad and Rosalie’s marriage.
The reveal that Brad and Rosalie were married was a great surprise, as I noted in last week’s Deconstructing GH, and it’s about time we get to Rosalie’s big secret. I adore the actress and am thrilled they are using her more. We know as long as they are married that they can’t testify against one another, and that the secret is so bad that if Lucas knew it would put him in danger. Last week I suggested it has to do with Brad’s mob family. I am wondering what Rosalie has to do with that, and if she is also tied to a mob family. The two definitely seemed to be involved in some kind of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” event.
