Spoilers and Speculation: Clink Boom and Cheese Fondue

Almost every parent on the show gets similar writing at some point.

Yeah, Scout and Danny are at that awkward age where they're too old to be carried around as visual plot points and the show doesn't want to put the effort into finding kid actors who will behave on camera and are able to deliver lines semi-naturally.

We joked for years about Elizabeth's boys being with Audrey, who had to take care of them all by herself. At least Scout, Danny, and Leo have a nanny and other staff to look after them at Monica's.

Did I miss a conversation where Sam or Drew agree to take on some of Leo's nanny's wages since she's working for them too?

Because right now it just looks like Sam dumps them at Monica's house and expects someone there to take care of her kids while she's off having adventures with Jasus.  Yes, Audrey did a lot of babysitting for Liz but she was retired by then. Monica is still working as well as being on the board.

One things for sure, if Show ever decided to do a story where Drew gets full custody of Scout and then gets together with Liz, the Liz/Sam fanwars would go OFF THE CHARTS.

Not that it matters but I think both Kelly and Becky would prefer not to go there again based on some of the comments they've made about fans and the attacks on both from each fanbases.

That’s still going on? The JaSam/Sam fanbase is already fractured. The fighting was mostly over Jason/SBu/Liason. I can’t imagine it would be at those levels over Drew and Scout, lol.

I think instantly curing the blindness for all the twins takes away any urgency of the virus. Granted the result with Drew ends up with Jordan getting hurt, but it should have happened to more people.

I think it would be just as bad, maybe worse considering how rabid the Drew and Sam fanbase is.

So I am just jumping in to ask-is Olivia pregnant ? IDC about Carly. I just heard a spumor Olivia might be. Now, if she is, and that brought JE back even on a recurring basis, I might check in to see those scenes. But otherwise IDEC about GH in the slightest. And I am far too lazy to go back more than a few pages to check to see if it's a definite go ? Can someone help a girl out ? Warm chocolate chip cookies and cold milk for anyone who can straighten that out for me. Thank you !

Maybe TPTB didn't want to point out how many twins are running around Port Charles these days.

No, she's not.  There was a spoiler about a surprise pregnancy being revealed in the Valentine's Day episode and there was speculation it was Olivia given other spoilers had her and Ned in said episode.  But it was Carly.

I was stunned to see that brief flicker of Lucy, Mac, and Felicia in that promo.  Please tell me we're actually getting them back into the Ryan story because this Franco focus ain't it.

But nobody can foil Ryan until he murders Carly's ass dead.  Do it, Chamberlain, free us all!

Oh my God, as if any of those men just wouldn't shoot Sonny dead. So, so embarrassing. 

Poor, poor princess Franco. Framed, molested, stabbed, shot. I'm surprised we don't have a flashback where Franco sold his hair to pay the bills. I don't hate Franco much nowadays but when his annual perils of Franco story comes along in February it is so annoying.

His whining is relentless, isn't it? He probably could have beaten the rap if he hired a lawyer other than Scott, who, let's face it, is a pretty terrible person to have as your legal representation. Get Nora back! She'd have wiped the floor with Margaux.

If only Ryan decided to go out in a blaze of glory and shoot everyone in Port Charles. Let's have a Dynasty-wedding massacre, with some real stakes.

It's done that before. Given how underwhelming the last five minutes always are, it cracks me up how dramatic the promo is.

That slap is the most energy kelly has put into a scene in months. 

I was watching some old "Port Charles" over the weekend and the difference in energy level - particularly when Livvie is a full-throttle bitch later in the series - is quite something.

And then when those five minutes end with a decent cliffhanger, the previews for the next day reveal the ending and kill the suspense.

Aww well. Can't say I'm surprised at all. Thanks, now I know not to bother.  🙂 I pass the mag stands and I see SonnyCarlyJasonSam's faces and I'm like....NOPE. Been good for almost two years now, I ain't missing nothing. They'll never focus on real Qs (although I do miss Michael, strangely enough, go figure).

Dante's return being all about Sonny.  Yeah...deal breaker for me.

I can't like Dante when he's associated with Cortinthi.

Oh, Sonny's proven he would lay down his life. The problem is he's not willing to mitigate his being an asshole.

Sonny is the recipient of good karma

Good karma?????  GOOD KARMA????  Do the writers understand what this means?  Sonny does not PUT good karma out into the universe so how can he be the recipient of it?

Cam has regrets

And here we go with the Franco Apology Tour.  Ugh.

Someone wake me up when they finally loop back around to Gail's will.

That'll happen on April 1, I believe, right? I know a specific date was given, but I zoned out because it's been so stupid.

Is it too much to hope that he has regrets because he doesn't like fighting with his mom? In a good script, he would feel bad about calling his mom "sick" to her face, and that would be all.

His mother is in love with a serial killer and married him. That is sick, but Cam has to swallow it because Franco had a tumor and he was cured of killing all those people. He got teased and beaten up because of Franco, so he is incredulous that his mother's main concern is supporting Franco and wants Cam to agree that she is right.

It's the eternal problem of this soap: There are no stakes. We know exactly how a story will end practically before it starts.

So true and so sad for us viewers. It’s another reason why the soaps that we all grew up with are soon to be gone forever.

Back a year or two ago, when Carly was consistently acting even more unhinged than usual -- I can't remember about what, maybe Michael still giving Nelle chances even after her first round of scheming/sekritz came out -- I suggested in the episode thread that she should get a stroke story. I mean, it's a hospital show with some doctors, and one of them does brain-related things, and she's going to be front-burner all the time anyway, so why not? They saddled another female lead with polycythemia vera, after all (which I hated). I said at the time that LW would probably do well with the rehab scenes, playing things like being frustrated because she can't button her clothes or express herself clearly.   

Now, I'm not taking credit for anything (writers, if you're reading these boards and taking our suggestions, I wish you hadn't picked mine! There were better ones!). However, I'm wondering if that's where it's going now. Didn't Kim actually mention stroke as one of the risks of her high-risk pregnancy? I'm damn sure not expecting her to follow orders to keep calm and take it easy for the duration.  She's done stupid risky things during all of her pregnancies, the successful ones and the unsuccessful ones. And she's Carly.

Yes, and it was also a risk when Carly was pregnant with Joss. I don't expect much to come of it, given how reluctant the show is to give characters any sort of challenge. And I'm sure that the writers would think it would make Carly look weak if she had a stroke with any decent side effects. They'd rather put her in a coma (not that I'm complaining) and have an endless stream of visitors sob and wring their hands at her bedside.

She won't have a stroke because they've talked the possibility of one to death.  No, IF this zygote isn't a tock, we'll spend the next 7 months having to listen to Jason and Sonny yell at other people to not stress Carly out and her being braveandstrongandlovingwithherwholeuterus to bring her miracle baby into the world.

Zzzzz. The only thing I'm even mildly interested in is the Ava/Ryan stuff.

Sonny of course finds Dante; then what? Girl Reporter is fine, the kids are happy being at Monica's, and the PCPD is getting along with Dante. I'm always glad to see DZ, but I don't think this appearance will resolve anything.

I have really not been liking this Sonny/Robert/Dante story.  Chasing after Dante (who's back for like four episodes) who's chasing after some Big Bad we don't know?  So dumb.

The only suspenseful thing about it is waiting to see which pronunciation of "Dante" Robert is going to utter next.
