They took Jordan to surgery due to her blood pressure spiking, due to kidney damage.  It just seems silly to me that Curtis is completely blindsided by the outcome.

I thought he was just alarmed because he knows the other kidney is in peril as well.

This right here should tell everyone something is terribly wrong: What doctor would EVER stab a patient who's in a secure (well...) hospital? FFS.

And it almost feels like Kiki was killed so, in this part of the story, there could be a lot of, "Well Franco might have killed those randoms, but he'd NEVER kill Kiki."  Whatever.

Long story short, ryan outted himself to Franco then stabbed him in the stomach.  Franco rolls around on the floor for a bit.  Nurse comes in, Ryan claims he had to stab Franco in self defence, she leaves, Franco and Ryan fight.  Franco knocks Ryan down and runs out of the room, locking Ryan in.  Franco leaves Jordan a voicemail that Ryan's the killer as he runs ot of Ferncliff.

So not only are Ferncliff's staff incompetent to the point that they can't recognize twins and haven't yet noticed that one of their patients is missing, not to mention not reporting to a superior that one of their patients was denied medical treatment from their doctor, now a nurse leaves the room and leaves a stabbing victim that is bleeding alone with the man that stabbed him? This freaking show.

It's really sad what they have let it become. Everyone can point to different reasons based on what you used to love about GH. 

But I watch YR pretty regularly. And got back into parts of Days last fall. Obviously they both have issues too. But the characters are still recognizable (aside from the Days kids where I get confused who is who) and stories make some sort of sense for the most part.

GH is just a mess. I stopped watching and following anything about it for the most part in 2009. Yes. I came back for Burtons return.... and I didn't recognize half the characters (aside from as actors on other shows).  And I gave up again last Xmas when it became apparent they weren't giving Jason a story with his also back from the dead child. But still reading spoilers/recaps hoping something changes. 

But it just seems to be the same stories over and over again 

oldPhyliss from YR and the guy from AMc get together.  He lies. They breakup. Repeat

OLTL Todd --- feel sorry for him! He had a tumah!

old Carly from ATwT -- some drama  so she can show her chops  (I actually like MW so I don't mind this as much

Sonny, Scam , more random people I don't know-- I don't care 

Carly screeching about something 

GH Vets window dressing

It's a sad, sad day when you have to say 'yeah, Carly was right about that place.'  Of course, the asterisk on that statement is that her whine was totally self-serving and actually her experience there wasn't that awful (and totally of her own doing).

I wonder the fear and pain of being stabbed by a serial killer will make Franco - and maybe Liz too - reflect on the immense amount of pain and suffering he caused his numerous victims.  ...nah!

Putting aside the grossness of Franco stumbling away with his life and the knowledge of the true killer, I'm so distracted by the missing connections the show is failing to flesh out. Liz mentions Drew's hospitalization with nary a word about Jason (who as Jake's FATHER should really tear himself away from Shiloh and the contents of Carly's womb to check in on the kid). Lulu, girl reporter extraordinaire, isn't even a little suspicious that her protective mother has fallen off the face of the earth. And of course, there's Franco and Jordan's secret plan that no one else knows about, so Franco has no one to turn to for help. Everything's happening in isolation to extend the life of this mess, and not only is it stupid, it's shitty storytelling. A dominant storyline like this should be drawing on relationships between characters and tying them together, not keeping them in a bubble.

They should have quit while they were ahead and wrapped things up around the time of Lulu's stabbing, which was actually entertaining and unexpected. Switching the focus to Franco and making him hit rock bottom so that he can later have the glory of redemption was a big mistake.

So, how long have Laura and Kevin been without water now?

I think it's been a day. I often find myself wondering what they do in these situations regarding bathrooms. I mean, in a 7 hour period, provided no one had severe dehydration, someone is going to have to pee. In a full day, you know they are going to have to go. 

I'm wondering what the odds are that Franco will stumble down to the basement, real Kevin will save him, and the three of them will be the ones to take down Ryan.

I mean, they can go anywhere there lol. I don't need them to address that. But if it's a situation where they don't have water, that's a glaring plot point imo.

I . . . will not feel sorry for Ava. The whole reason the relationship came about is she lapped up Ryan telling her to indulge in murderous feelings about her daughter.

Previews...

Frank Valentini: OMG, the climax we're building to this Ryan story is great!  We have Franco nicely positioned front and center.  And all the hard work we did showing Lulu becoming fiction's greatest journalist is paying off.  Just gotta pivot Carly and Jason in and we'll be all set!

Shelly Altman: And having Terry parachute in to listen to Liz's problems and not tell us anything about her life, it was just so progressive and groundbreaking, don't you all think?

Chris Van Etten: (fidgets uncomfortably in his chair)

Frank Valentini: What's up, Chris?

Chris Van Etten: Well...maybe, just maybe now, we could maybe throw Mac and Felicia into the story.  Maybe?

Frank: ...I'm sorry, who?

Chris Van Etten: ...Mac and Felicia?  Felicia was the...original target of Ryan's obsession?  Mac...has been Kevin's best friend for years?  They...know these players better than Franco and Lulu do?  You know, just spit balling, boss.

Frank: I mean, I guess.  Shelly?

Shelly Altman: Hmmm?  Oh, sorry, I'm looking over some scripts for the summer.  I can't decide if Lucas and Brad's fight about the baby swap secret should be relayed on-screen by Michael or Carly...

Frank: Alright, Chris, go ahead and put Matt and Francine in.  But have them be in Lulu's office, basking in the glow of her reporting mastery!

Chris Van Etten (sighs): Sure thing.

To be fair, he was thisclose to becoming the boys' stepdad a few years ago, he was dad/is now beloved uncle to Liz's middle son. He's been much more of a father to Jake than Jason ever was or will be.  I can fanwank that Drew spends a lot of with Scout because he lives in the Q mansion and Sam is constantly saying that Scout is "at Monica's." He has spent a lot of on-screen time with Oscar. Personally, I would like to see Drew adopt Cameron (and marry Elizabeth, after Franco dies of sepsis from the stab wound). 😛

The line "You do have children of your own" should be applied to Jason; it's times like these I would love for Tracy to say, "why do you continue to get into your late brother's adult son's business, when you have two young sons of your own to parent in the moments when you're not doing Sonny or Carly's bidding."

I get what you're saying but anytime Scout is mentioned Drew acts like he hasn't spent time with her.  Drew needs his own thing and needs to stop worrying about everyone's else problems, especially Liz and Franco when he's walking around with no memories, just went blind, hit a woman with his car, and his kid is dying.  Not that I care about Oscar but he has enough to mine a story from and instead it's this garbage that is about everyone else but him.

This isn't going to do anything for Drew in the end, outside of "oh he's a good guy" (we know that). 

They've done nothing with the character trying to figure out anything about his past.  He should be figuring out Shiloh.  Talking to Anna about the twins.  Knowing that the actor wanted a memory storyline and still hasn't gotten one.....

And this was really only supposed to be the Thursday cliffhanger, right? I think now we have to wait until Monday to see the "Don't. Miss. The. Last. Five. Minutes!" ep that was supposed to be the traditional Friday cliffhanger.

Franco managed to spit out more info before passing out than most victims do on this show. And Liz knew where her own towels were. (On TV, people always have plenty of folded, clean dishtowels in their kitchen.)

We finally get confirmation that Jason is aware of what's going on with Franco, and his only comment is...Carly shouldn't think about such awful things because it's bad for her baby, whose safety is paramount. I want to throw something, y'all.

Continuity problem: Lulu said Deborah Jones and Suzanne Smith were murdered in Texas at the time Ryan was known to live there, yet Suzanne's license that Ryan was holding said it was issued in 2006. I don't why I'm bothered that the show gets the small details wrong when heaven knows they can't get the big details right either, but here I am, complaining anyway.

That brief fantasy of Ryan getting showered with adoration while Felicia sulks on the sidelines was bizarre yet really funny to me. I've enjoyed these intermittent flashes into Ryan's mind, it brings some needed levity to the situation.

It was funny and bizarre. And rather telling that Ryan is still kind of hung up on Felicia. If he were really over her, I'd think she wouldn't have even been in the fantasy.

"Why do you want to get married tonight?" Ryan lists a bunch of reasons to Ava, but not the most important one: "If we get married, you can't be compelled to testify against me." Though given Ava's vengeful nature, I can totally see her throwing marital privilege out the window. (This assumes Ryan lives long enough to be put on trial, which is highly doubtful, I think.)

That POV from the trunk of Ryan's car was really weird.

She's the worst. Nothing is ever enough for her. And she's the female lead of this show. I spit on the idea that a strong woman has to behave like Carly. Whatever the writers are smoking, they need to put it down. And we've had a revolving door of writers and none of them have tried to fix this mess of a woman.

Yes, you missed where the other kidney was compromised as well.  I believe something about grades of damage was mentioned.  Grade 2 damage for the "good" remaining kidney, if I recall correctly.
