    Oh, Nik. Isn't that girl young enough to be your daughter? That's just creepy. Good will not come of this.

    Well, Adrienne Leon is 24, and Tyler Christopher is 39.

    So, not really creepy.

    If you are talking about the characters, well, Nikolas s/b around 32, and Brooke is 12.

    So, creepy.

    :)

    Yeah, it just feels sleazy to me. But, considering that B L is so manipulative, (flattening her own tire, trash talking Liz, etc.) maybe those two belong together.

    Oh, and when a character goes off on a soliloquy rant, and another walks in on it, that just drives me nuts.

    I had no idea Nik was that old in real life. He doesn't look it at all.

    I love the actor who plays Michael. Abby is ok, but he makes that relationship look so real.

    Brookelynn is manipulative, but Liz does need to give up on the brothers and get a life. Did I hear she was leaving the show? Since she has everybody in town's children, I wonder how they could do that? Not likely she would just move away.

    The actress was originally fired but because of fan backlash they are keeping her.

    And because of that, other actors will be let-go. Sonya Eddy (Epiphany) confirmed for fans on her Facebook wall that her contract was not picked up again after expiring. Expect more of this.

    So is Jocelyn going to get Jake's kidneys (a-la BJ's heart and Maxie)?

    I'm really hating Liz. Even when her kid is at death's door she can still be a beotch.:rolleyes:

    I'm also hating the way scenes are just ended in what I'd consider the middle and never resolved for us to see. Like when Liz was going off on Lucky about getting married earlier in the week and LuLu walked up and called her on it. Go to commercial, and then when back there's nothing more to that encounter.:mad: WTF? Seems like this kind of thing is happening a lot, and I don't like it.

    And what happened to the syringe?

    And when did Suzanne admit to Theo that Brenda's baby was alive? Did they show that and I missed it? They just show up in front of a house where the kid is supposed to be and it's obvious that Suzanne has admitted the kid is alive. Huh?:confused:

    I am also lost at Suzanne and the baby, but this may part of Guza’s rewrite of GH storyline. Guza is the head writer for GH and from what I understand was puss off when the TPTB decided to keep Liz. You will see more bodies drop dead. The actor that play Nick will be leaving GH.

    Your right about the crappy kidneys story line cost cutting at it worse, from Soap Net:

    “Guza’s redo of Labine’s “B.J.’s Heart” storyline—in full effect next week—will surely garner acting notices for Steve Burton (Jason), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), et al. But at what cost? The actors have talked about going through some of the most emotional scenes of their careers, most of them with real-life families to Method-inspire. But killing off children for ratings, which this seems to me, is never a good idea in the long run. Under current budgetary constraints and under the darkening cloud of soap cancellations, such a story will only suffer in comparison. There won’t be the time and care devoted. There hasn’t been, especially under the Guza/GH regime. The man is historically incapable of emotional, meaningful, respectful depth worth going through. Look at what Kimberly McCullough (Robin) said in a live ABC Daytime February chat about her own break-up story with Jason Thompson (Patrick): “It was almost like there was a break-up, but not as deep into the process as I would have hoped.” GH doesn’t (maybe cannot afford to) go deep into any story. A great many of us find using cancer, much less “Stage 5 Kidney Cancer” for a barely-out-of-the-womb child like Josslyn, unforgiveable. It reads like a stunt. And you should never pull stunts with cancer and children. Anyone who’s gone through real cancer doesn’t want this story to air. This story is so far from Claire Labine’s “B.J.’s Heart,” it’s ridiculous to even try. I’ve already received a complaint from a cancer survivor about this, not the first by a long shot.“

    First, my understanding is that the Jake story plays out exactly the same way that it would have if Becky were leaving...the story was designed to facilitate her ouster, not as payback for ABC keeping her on.

    I'm curious as to your source on the Tyler Christopher thing..he did get a minor role in a pilot, but that hasn't been picked up, and there's not a peep in the media about it. Not saying that he won't leave...someone will need to go if Becky's staying, and with Aiden being Lucky's, and all Nikolas's women off the canvas, he's really not all that connected to the storylines anymore...but I just haven't seen anything that says that he's leaving.

    Same source Soap Net, from what I read Tyler going to be in a prime time show on ABC Family Net. How this will be work into the GH plot line? My guess is that Nick will be deported back to Greece.

    I've also noticed the disjointedness from one day to the next. And, the not so subtle plots moving ahead a bit too much. Like Joselyn going from not feeling too well one day to a diagnosis of cancer the next.

    What's going to happen with Brook Lyn? There are too many plots splitting off into who knows what. With the truth coming out about Aiden, it was looking like Lucky and Liz might get back together leaving Siohban out in the cold. But now with Jake in critical condition it might split them up again.

    I'm beginning to think that the best thing that could happen to GH is for everyone to move on.

    And now Tyler is out. I am guessing he is going to exit with brooklynn to NYC. Once aiden's paternity is out.

    Also today was so sad. Liz and jason's scene was really moving.

    I thought Liz's reaction to the donor thing was ridiculous. She is among other things, a surgical nurse. I don't care how hysterical she was, she would get the idea of saving lives with his organs. The acting was good, but I hate sad storylines. Did Luke kill Jake?

    Maybe it would be best if they just wrapped up a few loose ends and leave.

    As for who hit Jake. I'm putting my vote in for the black car with fake plates.
    Which is most likely the one with Theo.
