    If tony Geary is staying on the show (not retiring), Luke has to come back. It may be as a hero.

    Anna is gonna rush into Vic Cassadine's lair without a SWAT team!?! Come on!

    Question: Is the actor playing Peter Harrell, the same one that portrayed him in 1985: Judson Scott? I couldn't read the credits fast enough. I recognized the head shot that Felicia was looking at as the same guy who was in Star Trek II. But, he looks much older here. And, apparently came out of retirement to do this part.

    What do you call a Red Shirt who is one of the enemy? (Besides a Walk On or Day Player?)

    Just a note in general about handcuffs, re: today's show
    and a pet peeve of mine. Most of the handcuffs bought and sold in the US, probably the world, are made by Smith & Wesson. The same company that makes guns. There are other manufacturers, but they are all basically the same design. With a few exceptions, (prison cuffs, some mental facilities, etc.) any handcuff key will open any handcuff. They're meant to be universal, for obvious reasons. Hell, I still have a handcuff key on my key ring from the 70s when I was in law enforcement. It still works.

    That's why it bugs me so much when, as in today's ep, Anna didn't have her cuff key and had to shoot the cuffs off Dante. :rolleyes: No cop is ever going to work without that key. Also: Ricochet!

    Thus endeth the rant.

    Guess who's coming back from the dead next?

    :p

    So, who is Nathan's father?

    Why are they not showing Jason's head? If he's a new actor usually they just announce it or ignore it and let you figure it out. And the picture in the file is old Jason. :confused:

    You're in a building with a bunch of crazy bad guys, and you make out and then give Maxi a gun lesson? Then sirens go off--do you leave? No, don't even send the civilians (Lulu and Maxi) out.

    I'm thinking they may try to pull off something like having Jason injured in the fracas and he goes back to PC with his head wrapped. Of course, he'll need plastic surgery and voila: Gnu Jason.

    Only, this guy didn't have old Jason's build.

    These people aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.

    If the actor is not yet available, they get a no name to be a body double. It's been done before. They did it with Laura when she was in the but house. If there is no specific lines needed, why have the real actor?

    I guess the WSB is under funded, as the SWAT crew only had handguns instead of assault weapons.

    I hope that now Maxie is with Nathan, she'll stop being an empty headed teenybopper.

    With Jace coming back, that'll put the damper on Sy trying to win Sam back.

    I don't care if Nulu is an action hero now, I still miss Hot Lulu.

    You'd think that Vic would want a protective cover on the button of the destruct switch. You know, to prevent an accidental melt down. :rolleyes:

    But in this case, they're leading the viewer to think that old Jason (Steve Burton) will be returning by showing pictures of him. And we know that's not the case.

    It just looks stupid.

    Are we supposed to know what's in that blue container? I thought it was Lulu and Stavros's embryo, but that can't be it. :confused:

    Looks like they're closing in on fake Luke.

    Poor Sabrina. A few months ago Patrick was ready to marry her, and now he's got a new woman and doesn't even bother to talk to her.

    Wait.....what? :eek:

    *note: I don't really expect an answer. For some reason or another, I'm going on week 4 of not watching GH and I don't expect anyone to give me a month long recap. It's just I have no clue what's going on and just checking...that's not a typo? LOL Dang, I've missed some stuff!

    You could read up on the episodes here.
    http://www.tvrage.com/General_Hospital_US/episodes/1065605123
    This link starts with 9/2, but you can go back if needed.

    WTF? I was wondering if Helena was going to show her face again!
    And she has the Lulu/Stavros embryo. But, did she get out?
    And did Jason and Robin get out?
    Can we be sure that Victor is dead?

    And that is normal too. Didn't we have this discussion a while back? Until the new actor is in the role, they will use photos, etc, of the old one. They look at it as technically the new actor is not IN the role until he/she is there.

    Soaps have been changing actors for decades. This is normal.
