    Episode Discussion: TFGH

    Actually (she said in a small voice) I was a little ticked at Lulu for being mad at Maxie. Just a few hours ago in soap time, we watched Lulu tell Sonny she wanted him to use whatever means necessary to get to Dante because she wasn't complete without him. Maxie only did what Sonny didn't/wouldn't/couldn't. And, as Laura pointed out, it did tell her what she needed to know.

    Although I wonder why a mental health facility would allow a patient to have a gun at the ready in his room, I'm completely behind LWB/whatshisname getting shot. That was a whole lotta angst for one through-and-through bullet that Michael Westen at Burn Notice University taught us went into an area of the body with no vital organs. I am choosing to believe that's why Dante shot him there, though. And, way to go back to the '60s in a negative way, show, with Lulu saying she's not whole without her man. Sheesh, writers! Did you have a contest to see who could tick off the largest percentage off your dwindling viewer base with just one line?

    I agree with this. It's just a step beyond "Those aren't my cigarettes; they belong to a friend whose mother doesn't know she smokes." But I can understand how her knowledge about his daughter could accidentally, peripherally slip out, especially when a therapist encourages speaking without self-censoring first. I just think a better response for him in this case would have been, "Yes, my daughter passed away. . . . other shrink stuff . . . And if you ever bring this or something similar to it up in a session again, I WILL refer you to someone else."

    But, other than the need to service a plot, it's also rather irrational for a psychologist/psychiatrist/whatever whose credentials and daughter's death are both posted on the internet to become huffy and end treatment when the daughter is mentioned. He should be expecting his clients to research him and be aware of what is out there. I enjoyed hearing Alexis turn things back on him, whether he agreed with her or not.

    If memory serves, Brad switched babies with Nelle, and she later showed up at the hospital with deadBaby.

    So today this struck me as odd, and as being the kind of thing that contributes to Michael's dorkiness: He met What'sHerName for dinner at the Metro Court, which I would think is a fairly nice restaurant, with his shirttail out, but with his sleeves all the way down and buttoned. A rather odd fashion choice, especially since it's supposed to be June in Port Charles, too, I think. And Sonny and Carly have a doctor's appointment at the dinner hour? And, yeah, Sonny, you can talk about loving the baby all you want. We all know how much effort you'll put in to actually raising it and dealing with the issues it might have. I have friends who had a child with spina bifida, so I'm pretty sure this story will leave a bad taste in my mouth. Please let this child be a tock.

    Queen Of The South

    Gotta agree. When dusk fell and they were still hunting him, I had been thinking they were on a fool's errand, since someone who knew the swamps, like a birdwatcher, would have made tracks immediately and been miles away. Then he stepped out right in front of them. Geez!

    He's playing pretty much the same kind of character as he did most of the time on GH.

    Her obsession is starting to get on my nerves, and I'm wondering if this story is going to be an exit from the show for her. I'm also getting tired of her head tilt and sad half-smile. It's all she ever does.

    Thank you. This is a perfect description.

    In Port Charles, they go to the hospital for everything. In pretty much the rest of the U.S., for example, people go to the doctor's office for their checkups or for a number of "specialty" treatments. Here, even the most mundane medical need is taken care of with a hospital appointment.

    Why did Carly need to be in the exam room with Bobby and Brad? Is there nowhere she cannot insert herself? Even important meetings aside, how come not a single parent got a glimmer of a thought that a teacher might not want to stay late on that last day of school? Or think that a teacher who kept trying to leave might really have made an appointment? (And we'll just -- please -- forget that the students were on a field day. Writers, couldn't you have just kind of wandered into the realm of believability by having the kids go home early on the last day? Diane had already stated that the hearing was at 3:00 p.m.) Why does Bobbie think she has the right to slap Julian? I certainly hope he brings up Cheryl to her tomorrow. What I want now is for Willow to have had her baby at a decent hospital that is terrible at keeping records. I want that baby to somehow be Nelle's with someone who is now dead. That'll get Mikey out of the picture altogether and then Nelle will give custody to Brad and Lucas. Willow can go look elsewhere for her baby.

    When Oscar had his out of body experience, telling him it was okay to move on, he saw Joss on her HS graduation day. She was talking with her friends, including Cam, and then her boyfriend came up to her, so maybe she never connects with Cam. But now that I think of it, maybe it's a good thing. At least one decent person in Port Charles won't be too connected to the Corinthi.

    Or maybe go back to a half hour with less filler? (Like how many long shots we got today of people walking out of rooms)
