Thank goodness for the ABC website.

So how long before Jason shows up, either dead or alive?

For your info:

Maurice Benard (Sonny) may have been overheard telling a fan recently that he’s not sure he’s going to stay on with the soap. This lends more credence to the rumor that TPTB are planning to rebuild OLTL on the bones of GH.

Richard Steinmetz (Joe Jr.) wasn’t supposed to end this way. But because of Steve Burton (Jason) leaving the show, TPTB had to revise the story to accommodate his exit, which impacted Steinmetz’s story, unfortunately. The actor would’ve loved to have stayed and explored his character’s relationships, especially with Connie (they never really got into it). His immediate co-stars regretted his early departure as well. “A lot of people told me they were unhappy I was leaving, like Erik Valdez (Trey), my on-screen son, and Kelly Sullivan (Kate/Connie). It doesn’t change anything, but it makes me feel good.” –Soap Opera Digest

Hmmm, Somehow I think Duke has gotten into the act to save Jason.
Afterall he's been working in the background for quite some time.

So, AJ (?) is alive and has been in hiding somewhere?
This can't be a recast for Jason as he didn't have any bullet holes in him.
I still suspect that Jason will be back (with another actor playing the part) after enough time has passed.
How long has Monica known about AJ?

On a lighter note, it looks like Maxie has put on a couple of pounds to fill out her face from her medical problem.
She's still as ditsy as ever.

Will Lulu and Dante go for a surrogate?

AJ was declared dead and then came back.
Then Dr. Weber hid the fact for how many years?
I wonder if Heather knew?

Sneaky how Todd divulged the DNA results.

Well, Tuesday should be interesting.

It was good to Jason again even if it was for Sam's hallucination.

I guess A.J. must have been on the rack, because this guy is about two feet taller than the last incarnation. He does somewhat resemble a beefy Jason though. He could have been his stand-in.

The old adage that evil never dies is true. Heather. is. alive. [Shudder]

Thursday's episode was great with AJ. Can't believe that Monica hid AJ all these years. geesh. Now at some point I remember that Jerry Jax mentioned something about AJ.

any clue on why Duke has Robin hidden from Anna?

i am totally loving Todd and his humor! I think he and Diane would be a great comedy act.

I loved seeing Alan. I wish they'd bring him back from the dead.

The flashbacks are getting scary. They've had to zoom in way too much to change the SD shots into HD.

So ghosts age! Alan has lost weight and his hair has turned gray.

I need a little back story on AJ. I didn't start watching GH until the early 2000's or so and therefore didn't see the AJ story as it unfolded originally. I understand now, but the question I have is, is this incarnation of AJ consistent with the earlier one? I realize that the writers are trying to change him. I'd just like to hear what other's here think.

It seems that several story arcs are moving along so fast that there won't be anything left by Thanksgiving. I'm wondering who/what will by pulled out later.

Would Emily Q show up to give advice to AJ or whoever?

Loved seeing little Robin! And now Patrick is questioning whether she's alive.

I don't remember much about the original AJ, but the idea that he's running off and letting people see him exactly as Monica told him not to and putting her reputation on the line as well as his own life--pretty much the same old AJ. Still seems to have his anger issues too. But he does seem to have stopped drinking, which was a big part of his problem back them.

Ok, who is in the Duke mask? And how was he going to make love to Anna without her realizing he was wearing a mask?

The good/bad news, the man behind the mask is...

Spoiler:
Anders Hove may reprise his memorably villainous role of Cesar Faison soon, joining the classic GH gang. TPTB are pulling all the stops to make this happen for the Danish actor who may or may not need his expired green card renewed in a hurry. If this comes to pass, as planned, Faison and Helena will turn out to be the brains behind the Duke/Jerry/Joe Jr. operation. Once this falls into place, the rest of the rumors — we’ve heard about back when AMC/OLTL were predicted to be canceled — will come to pass, including GH’s inevitable cancellation.

Hmmm, Duke shows up and sees Robin. In the course of the conversation Robin has doubts. And the doubts are realized as he takes off the Duke mask. Which now brings up, how could everyone in PC not notice the mask?

I loved the turn around at the hearing when it was stated that if the alternates where reversed then Connie should be brought up on the murder charges. I bet that Johnny will come forward and confess to the murders. When is anyone's guess.

How are they going to get out from the fact that Tracy is tied up in the boathouse?
Oops, Carly now knows about AJ.

Dante and Lulu screwed up and by lying on the adoption application will be denied.

So what's left for them? Using a surrogate would work.

They did a lot of dumb stuff:

Let start with Robin, when she had doubts, after testing Duke she should have kept it to herself till she was back in Port Chuck.

"Mission Impossible" mask alway work.

Johnny should have been ahead of this when ask if Connie/Kate should be committed all he had to do was say: "Yes, your honer, I love my wife but, she crazy as a Coo Coo Clock and anything that comes out of her mouth cannot be trusted because she knows not who she is. She is a danger to herself and others. I now support having her committed. If it is determine by court appointed psychologist that she is indeed Connie she should be charge with the murder of Star Manning husband and child."

AJ should turn himself in when Tracy found out, hire Dina now that it reveal that Carly set him up.

Never lie on an application.

Okay, who the hell is that?
Okay I read the above spoiler but am still a little confused.

What's Sonny going to do when he finds out that AJ is alive?

I didn't recognize Fason by name, but when I saw him I vaguely remembered him. So they use the guy who played Duke when the "mask" is on and the guy who played Fason (sp?) when it's off? You gotta love guys with cool accents.

I don't get why they're making all this effort to make the show good--which it has been the last 6 months or so--just so they can cancel it?

I vaguely remember him. Here's what wikipedia cast list says

Spoiler:
Cesar Faison (Anders Hove, 1990–92, 1999–2000, 2012–present) Enemy of Luke Spencer, Anna Devane, Sean Donely, and Robert Scorpio. Held Lucky Spencer captive on the orders of Helena Cassadine. His right-hand man was Jacques. Believed to have died twice–first on a boat with Anna and Robert, who were also presumed dead for a number of years, and then while escaping from the police on the docks in a boat which exploded. At the time of his presumed death in 2000, he was working for Helena. In the summer of 1993, Faison appeared on the ABC daytime series Loving. He also appeared on GH's daytime soap spinoff Port Charles in 1999.

A plastic mask? Really? I guess he figured he could make love wearing the mask and an ex-spy/police commisioner wouldn't suspect a thing! (though I suppose that's entirely plausible on this show ) Am I evil for thinking the guy looks better in the mask?

I agree that Robin royally screwed up, revealing that she was on to Fake Duke.

You know I have been watching GH on and off for more years than I care to say and it has been really terrible for more than a decade now (so, I haven't watched much) but I have to say... it's really good right now and I can't wait for Scorpio to come back this week and make it even better.

It's all loony and unbelievable, of course... but it's dang good stuff!

The canceling of GH is just speculation at this point. It was Katie Whathername and her producer who push ABC to keep GH as lead in to her show because she did not want the backlash that cause people to boycott the talk/cooking shows that replace the other soaps that were cancel. Keep in mind that producing a soap is expensive compare to a talk/cooking show. I will assume that GH save a lease a million dollars a year with Steve Burton (Jason) gone. If GH can keep ratting to justify the cost of producing the show and keep viewer tune in to Katie's show, ABC will keep it going.

I have a feeling that all of the actors are having fun with all of the twists happening on GH now.

As far as canceling GH, I'd think it might be better if it got renamed Port Charles as the hospital isn't really central to the show any longer.

What are the odds that Maxie would be the surrogate for Lulu and Dante.

Damn, the writers are moving the story arcs along at breakneck speed.

Maxie and Spinelli getting back together?
AJ arrested. Will he be the catalyst that kills Edward?
When will Anna find out about faux Duke? How did he put that mask on so quickly?
When will Robin actually return to PC?
Will Michael's insistence about AJ alienate him from Sonny and Carly?
Robert Scorpio is back in town at Luke's direction.
Is Jason alive or not?

And I wish Maxie would eat a sandwich.

So, two major points from today's episode.

The will was read and Heather did a good job of screwing over Tracy.
How long will it be before the fraud is uncovered?

And Maxie has offered to be Lulu's surrogate (she hasn't yet agreed).
At first this would be perfect, but after the kid is born, Maxie would be a problem.

First, not sure that Heather did anything to the will. Ed, last revenge. The question now is who is going to run ELQ?

Second, Maxie is and will alway be a problem.
