My theory about Peter: Alex moved him and is nursing him back to health. They are both alive and will wreak more havoc in Port Charles in time for November sweeps ): Also Maxie will be back by then…July 30, 2021 at 8:14 am #1204371960
I do understand that there are reasons for Laura to be fond of Sonny and Carly and some history there, but definitely also think she has reasons not to be. I think also most of her talk about Sonny is flatly positive (if mostly brief), versus something more measured. Even story over the last year or so would cast something of a strain on the positivity of that relationship. Cyrus bore pretty much all of Laura’s fury over the bombing of the Floating Rib, but that was a product of Cyrus’s competition with Sonny — something that, just by the way, Sonny had assured Jordan wouldn’t be an issue because he’d take care of Cyrus if she got him out of prison. I don’t know that Sonny losing a fake cousin he obviously didn’t care about should be enough to exempt him from any blame there. Then you have the debacle where Laura told Carly about Cyrus’s mother, and Carly promptly had him kidnapped, resulting in an endless barrage of threats against Laura, Nikolas, etc. Also Carly is clearly doubling down on mob stuff by marrying Jason rather than trying to establish any degree of distance. It seems the relationship between Laura and Carly has to ignore a lot of what’s happening in order to be this cheery loving aunt/niece thing they’ve got going.
Also, did every soap have a cosmetics company in the mid-90s to mid-00s? There were so many of them! I guess some of that was part of companies that were already established (like Jabot), but it’s a funny trend.July 30, 2021 at 9:01 am #1204372032
I think they did more to mourn the unseen Cook at the Q mansion than they mourned Dev or Dustin. Like wasn’t he Brook Lynn’s ex?July 30, 2021 at 12:31 pm #1204372398
There is a whole lot to digest from today’s episode: I am assuming Willow’s mom is back in town??? I am thinking Austin will blackmail Chase when Chase stalls on letting anyone knows he can walk again? Are we going to get a guest stint for Hayden’s mom? (Casting suggestion: Robin Strasser!). Spencer is a manipulative brat! What’s the truth about Nikolas and Hayden’s shooting? (my memory is hazy?).
I wish Ava would figure it out about Spencer!

So what is Harmony supposed to add again?August 1, 2021 at 3:40 pm #1204375820
Sad news: Port Charles and GH actor Jay Pickett passed away.
Happy news: Kirsten Storms is taping again.August 1, 2021 at 8:02 pm #1204376254
It seemed pretty likely that the mystery person in Friday’s episode was Harmony, but I also wonder what bringing her in will do. I’ve been thinking about her quite a bit, though, since the episode where Willow told Nina that she and Michael were making sure Wiley knew both of his grandmothers, showing pictures of Nina and Carly on her tablet. And it seemed weird that Willow is going to be Wiley mother, but her mother isn’t mentioned at all. I noticed this week how infrequently Chase and Willow are in scenes together lately. It’s less noticeable when they’re barely on and usually have some time being in a scene together, but the last couple of episodes, where Chase is chatting with Valentin, Brook Lynn, Austin, Monica, and whoever else is at the Q mansion while Michael and Willow are stealing time together in the gate house. It makes me feel like the show just wants to push Michael/Willow even though it doesn’t really work on screen compared to Chase/Willow. It also seems like there are some hinky things storywise to facilitate the plot, like Chase staying at the main house while Willow and Wiley stay at her cottage, even though she certainly could just staying in the main house as well. I don’t know what to make of the ending with Chase practicing his walking and Austin seeing that. I was thinking that the only way that goes anywhere is if Chase falls and hurts himself, and Austin is there to help? I can’t imagine any sort of blackmail, both because Chase isn’t doing anything that’s worth keeping particularly secret and because Austin attempting to blackmail a cop would be foolish of him on a number of levels. On Friday’s podcast, SOD described a sequence of events that doesn’t really make sense with this story, so I’m just going to see how this plays out.
My memory of Hayden’s shooting is a little hazy as well, but I do remember that it was Nikolas who was behind it. I also remembered several people already knowing that, including, I believe, Shawn and Sam, but that clearly isn’t the case anymore. What I had not remembered was that Shawn was supposed to be shooting Drew that day. I don’t know how much of that conversation between Nikolas and Elizabeth really happened before. They obviously just filmed it, because Marcus Coloma wasn’t Nikolas at the time, but I wasn’t sure if it might have occurred. It seems like something they’ve just invented to try to retcon the contradiction between the current story and what actually happened.
The conversation between Ava and Spencer was good, but after everything with Peter, Maxie and Anna, I can’t watch another drawn out story about a woman who should way smarter than this getting the wool pulled over her eyes in such an obvious way. I hope Ava quickly realizes what Spencer is up to.
LOL, I guess because the bombing at the Floating Rib led to Lulu being in a coma followed by Julian going on the run and then being killed and Sonny disappearing and being presumed dead, no one had time to care about Dev or Dustin.August 2, 2021 at 6:16 am #1204376669
^^ Yeah I’m just going to go back to referring to Dev as Scraps since when they did refer to him after he died it was with all the sadness of a dog who had to be put down.August 2, 2021 at 12:06 pm #1204377355
I have the feeling that the two things I am most dreading on the show are about to happen: Chase will get thrown under the bus and sacrificed at the altar of Michael and Willow; and Nina is going to get caught soon in regards to Mike being Sonny ): Not looking forward to either of these stories…
I feel bad for Trina, she’s the victim of the spiteful Stella ):
Who goes off to have sex during a children’s birthday party???
I liked Valentin’s dialogue today – he really does have remorse for his past mistakes.
I love that Leslie Charleson has been on so many episodes lately!August 2, 2021 at 12:46 pm #1204377415
^^ I’ve done it in weirder circumstances…August 2, 2021 at 3:01 pm #1204377688
Michael and Willow are consistently (and almost exclusively) turned on by talking about Wiley, so if they left his party to go to have sex, it kind of makes sense. (I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I’m guessing.)August 2, 2021 at 3:03 pm #1204377693
Also it could be worse. Wasn’t little Avery conceived at AJ’s funeral? Like in the crypt?August 2, 2021 at 3:16 pm #1204377725
Yeah, it definitely happened on or near AJ’s final resting place. Leave it to Sonny and Ava to take dancing on someone’s grave to the next level.August 3, 2021 at 3:49 am #1204378411
Here to point out that Willow and Michael were HOSTING Wiley’s party! Good grief! At least for me the foisting of Willow and Michael as a couple to root for has been a total fail! Chase is my hero! He deserves better than Willow, just hoping they don’t ruin his character during this storyline.
Yes, Ava and Sonny had sex at (or on) A.J.’s crypt, as they got turned on by telling each other what awful people they both are!
I do not understand why anyone puts up with Stella. I would tell her “NO! I do not wish to talk to you! Go away!”.
