Sam and Carly are assholes. True love starts with self-love. Yes, it sort of does. 

These two dumbasses are so stupid they can't see that they do not love themselves, hence their awful awful choice in men.

The same women who respectively had Jax and Drew and now.....

oh and Carly's "you need to do a better job of hiding your love of Jason!" HAHA

Sam acting SHOCKED about Oscar. Of course the two people who share a child know nothing about what's going in each other's lives.

Carly and Sam should never be allowed to interact. They are downright toxic together. When I wanted Sam to have girlfriends, that's not what I had in mind.

They should just barely tolerate each other, the way they used to. Carly is the obnoxious buttinsky she's always been, furious that Sam has won the prize Carly so desperately wants: Jason.

I'm so sure Danny would make a Valentine card, unprompted, for Carly and Sonny. If he made one for anyone, it would be Drew, but we can't have Danny show any sort of affection for the man who's been more of a father to him than anyone in town.

Also?  Shut up, Griffin.  Whining about Kiki and then claiming he's super sick of talking about his dead girlfriend?  He is so unlikeable.

He's such an emotional infant. I know his faith is shattered and all, but didn't his seminary training give him any tools to cope? Dealing with grieving parishioners is a regular part of being a priest. He can leave out the God stuff and use the other tools. But instead he throws a temper tantrum. Gah.

Uh, Carly, Monica meddled in your relationship with AJ because you were a gold-digging troublemaker. Sam didn't marry Jason for his money and social position.

Man, it was pitiful to see Ava's awestruck face at how freely Ryan said "I love you." All she's wanted is love and acceptance, and when she finds out that she's gotten it under false pretenses and at the cost of her daughter's life, it's going to devastate her.

I can't see how Ava will recover emotionally once the truth about Ryan comes out.  With the exception of Avery and Julian, he has taken away everything from her.  Since before he murdered Kiki, Ryan has been playing with Ava's mind in an absolutely vicious manner.  Today when Ryan told Ava he loved her, my heart broke for this fictional character.  Maura West is brilliant as Ava Jerome.  I know that once Ava discovers the awful truth, she will rebuild her life, for Avery's sake at first but will become stronger than ever before.  I can't wait to watch Maura take Ava through this journey,.

When Carly comes on I change the channel and sometimes I forget to come back. Show-you shouldn't lead with your most repulsive characters being ultra obnoxious. Carly lacks charm and to me is more despicable than of the actual villains on the show. Keep on showcasing this group of unlikable characters and GH will reclaim its spot as #4 out of 4. 

Also, trying to promote Valentine's Day with a minimum of loving couples is kind of pointless, isn't it? I remember the 'Love in the Afternoon' promotion which is what soaps were with suppose to be about. GH has gotten so far away from that,it's really sad. But I guess that's what happens when your core families and relationships are replaced with discount gangsters.

Julian and Kim are okay and Jordan and Curtis don't make me hate them but I think the best romance on this show is Ava and Ryan. MW showed how needy for love Ava is, and JL make me think that for Ryan, this is the first time in his life that anyone  has loved him back. Too bad he's a sociopath and it's all going to end badly.

Dr. Bryne was probably thinking he's caught a break not dating this nutcase. But the two of them were pretty together.

Nice of Drew to try to help Jason get the goods on Shiloh but it seemed to me that he, like Alexis, was struck by how good what Shiloh was saying was.  #TeamShilohAllTheWay.

Willow is possibly the worst actress this show has had for a while. I can barely concentrate in any scene she's in. She's just so awful.

I will pull up a seat for one because I enjoy watching her scenes and the performances of her scene partners (Michael, Chase, Lulu, Brad, or Nina) have not displayed a much higher caliber of acting.  ymmv.  Her eyes are expressive.  For example, the "isn't this the FIFTH time that we did this exact same scene at Julian's gastropub?" annoyed look is a favorite.  Jobs are tough to come by and this character's long-term success pretty much depends on her ability to produce a kid for Michael Corinthos.  She's not a nurse/doctor but at least she is not mob - so this viewer will be rooting for her but not so much that the Corinthos add another kid to their tally.

She'll get the wrath of Nina soon enough when the truth comes out that she is Willow's mother. It's so obvious that Willow is really Nina's daughter. She looks like she could be Sasha's sister and they aren't even related. LOL!!!!!

Well fuck, I guess that "bad guy stare" at the end of Monday's episode cements that Shiloh is evil and Carly/Sonny/Jason/Sam (Carsonjam?) will be right, again, about everything. 

There was a great story that could have been played out here that could have refreshed a lot of the characters, but now it will pretty much be unwatchable.

Exactly.  God forbid that awful foursome is ever wrong about anything.  Yesterday was particularly obnoxious, what with Sam bragging about what a great con she is and Carly on her soapbox about how evil Shiloh is...even though she's never even met him.  Also, how does lightning not strike these assholes for deciding anyone else is shady and/or criminal???

So stupid.  Are TPTB doing this because they don't want to upset the JaScammers by having each of them interact with the other person they have a child with? Sonny knows Frodd was arrested... shouldn't Jason know too? you would think he may be concerned about Jake being in that house.... but nope.  Jason's too busy worrying about Sonny's kid. UGH.

As per his conversation with Harmony, he was happy that Drew isn't going to have  the procedure to get his memories back because it was a complication for Shiloh. Harmony also told him that Jason was fishing around and they used that cop in order to harass Jason. Both actions and feelings point to Shiloh not being on the up and up.

Moving on to Sam, I cannot wait for her to fall into the clutches of the cult. Because she is neither strong-minded, bright or has a good sense of self-worrh. She would be even more susceptible than Kristina.

I mean, it's not like I didn't enjoy Laura dragging Franco and Liz's feelings for him.  But she's had no reservations about their relationship and his proximity to her grandchildren this whole time, she was rather cheerleader-y about it at points, so it comes off as hollow now.  It's really just there to make us go, "Aww, poor Franco!" (I didn't) and set Laura up to have to apologize later.  Ugh.

Why am I looking at LWB/FS and Sasha when I could be looking at Britt!

Laura questioning Franco was kind of stupid but the acting was good (even though I am  not a big fan of GF, she wasn't over acting here)  Liz and Cam scenes were great and I can feel for her when suddenly your little boy towers over you,

Now, an interesting development would be for Sam and/or Jason to start bugging Drew to get his memories to get the goods on Shiloh, and if Drew refused (because he didn't want to lose memories of Scout) selfless Jason would have the procedure and start developing feelings for Kim while Sam is off pulling a con on Shiloh. 

But, of course that wouldn't happen because JaSam are the twuest love that evah twued

This man has nothing for himself.  Beyond frustrating.  I guess Billy really doesn't care because he works probably twice a week and collects the check for doing his 5 minutes of air time.  But I really need him to leave within the year.  

It's a complete waste to use him like this, in no real way and sure Drew's a good guy and is good with kids but I'd like to see a storyline.

It really is. Drew is a good guy, he has a really great rapport with the kids. He has an easy going chemistry with a lot of the characters, but he's a good guy and Jason is apparently a million times better than him and oh, the evil for wanting better for his family than Jason ever did. 

It's such a waste of a character that's just a genuinely nice guy. 

The writers really need to re-evaluate their writing. 

I think Drew is going to be killed off at the end of the story with Shiloh.

It really is a waste of a character and I assume lots of money to have Billy Miller walking around doing nothing but being the "good guy."  

The ending was suppose to suggest Drew is going to help them get married?

By the time GH is over they will have set it up so every single one of Franco's victims will have had to apologize to him for daring to not believe that he has changed.

The writing for Liz re: Franco ever since she started dating him seriously has always skirted the edge of battered-woman syndrome, but never so much as it did today. She didn't listen to a word her teenaged son had to say when he came home from school hurt because of Franco's presence in their lives and all but told him she would and did choose Franco over Cameron and his brothers.

Right? And also, I'm confused about Lucky is doing. Is he just wandering around? Are we supposed to think he gets money from running cons on people? Because THAT would definitely not be something Lucky would do, no matter whether someone agrees that this wanderlust thing makes sense for Lucky.

I don't think Lucky has ever been incommunicado since he left after Siobhan died; they just decided no one would contact him for whatever dumb reason. "I don't want to bother him" or some such nonsense, when I'm pretty sure Lucky would want to be bothered when it affects his family.

Lazy, idiotic writers.
