    Yowzers! Today’s episode is why I love soaps! Every single moment, every single performance was beautiful! (: So much fun to see Lesley and Monica talking about the old days! Even characters who annoy me were tolerable today! I love how Laura just radiates love. Kin Shriner did marvelous work today too. Just great!

    I agree. This was the show at its best.

    Looking forward to seeing the anniversary episode, which I’ll hopefully get to by the weekend.

    I’m really enjoying GH, even after last night watching a whole episode where all people did was talk to or about Shiloh.

    The anniversary episode was nice but I wish there had been more flashbacks and it would have been nice to have a true tribute to Lee & Gail (& their portrayers) with Scotty front and center. Not even one flashback of Gail with dialogue? How would newer viewers even know who’s will is being read. Absolutely no reason for Sonny, Carly & Julian to be involved. And it was all a little too schmaltzy and saccharine for my tastes.

    Today’s episode has been another gem, I have enjoyed every single scene (: I realize how much I have grown to care about Oscar and Joss, and by extention Kim and Drew. Ava has been her usual intense self. Carly and Epiphany were great together. Earth mother Laura with Kevin and then Lulu. Jordan, Curtis and Stella discussing her dialysis. Even Curtis and Drew were great in their scene.

    I guess Oscar is really going to die soon ): I will miss him. I really hope Garen Stitt either gets a twin role on GH or lands on another show soon.

    While Friday’s episode had it’s irritating moments – esp. Valentin and Nina being so horrible to Willow at the school – blech! there were really nice moments for Kevin, Laura, Lulu, Maxie, Peter, among others. The show is mostly really great these days! (:

    Ok who else squealed with joy over Laura, Ava, and Felicia working together? Because this guy LOVED it!

    Yes, I enjoyed their scenes today too. I hope Felicia will be utilized more!

    I don’t care about Shiloh and Dawn of Day though…

    I just watched the anniversary episode, and I have to agree with OLTLfan. It was a real mixed bag for me. On the one hand, it’s great seeing some of these characters interact and take a (very brief) skip down memory lane, but I think something more focused, and with more flashbacks throughout the episode, would have been more effective. And yeah, I could have done without it being so saccharine. To have Stella in the episode essentially just to say how the wonderful people of GH are what make it so special was a touch too far for me. The Julexis stuff was a pretty big eyeroll for me, though I know they’re popular. I tend to forget sometimes, but whenever I come back to the show I’m reminded how much Alexis irritates me, just generally. But the biggest eyeroll for me was Laura telling Sonny that he’s a good guy in bad guy’s clothing. Okay. Sure.

    Yeah, Laura’s been way too fond of Sonny and Carly the last few years. I remember her liking Sonny when Luke and Laura first returned to Port Charles in the 90’s but that dynamic changed quite a bit over the years. She barely tolerated him by the end of the 90’s and thought he was scum in the 00’s.

    Haha!

    I think this works well! It’ll be interesting to see how Watros plays the role. And it kind of plays into the drama of all this as well, since Watros was the first big-name actress Y&R brought on after Stafford left when she originated the role of Kelly, before Cady McClain, another person who was heavily discussed as a Nina recast, took over the role.

    I hope they completely revamp the character. I want psycho Nina back that got up out of her wheelchair and trashed Silas’ house and cut a baby right out of Ava’s stomach. Nina’s been a complete and total waste of space ever since she got involved with Valentin.

    I wonder why Valentin is asking for Nora’s help? If it keeps her on the show for more episodes I am all for it! (I can’t stand him and wish he would leave the show, but… NORA can stay forever!)

    Kevin’s legal issues went away in a hurry! I wonder if Jon Lindstrom will be playing Ryan with only one hand? That will differentiate the two identical twins!

    I was not enjoying Nina’s sniping at Maxie, glad they have made up!

    Surprised by the Cynthia Watros casting choice for Nina.

    Nice to see Spencer _he still hasn’t told Laura about the election tampering! I am guessing she will resign once she learns of it ): I don’t want her to do that but I know how soap writers think…
