    Spoiler alert for Friday, 5/26 episode:
    I've been reading that there will be life altering events happening at the Nurses Ball and other locations in Port Chuck. One, involving a basic element of nature. ;)
    Say no more. Wink, wink.

    Interesting tidbit I just read:GH co-stars didn't know Finola Hughes was masquerading as Alex.

    Read more about it at soap central.com using the above search parameter. I couldn't figure out how to import it here.

    The next episode should be interesting.
    Helena certainly did a job on Jake.
    That oil lantern didn't throw a lot of light did it?
    I wonder if fire can destroy the bio toxin?

    LOL--how big can she possibly be under there?

    The lyrics to Hallelujah are a little weird, but I love the music. Can't hear it too often, and I love to hear Epiphany sing.


    For a minute there I thought you were saying they thought it was another actress. Duh. :D

    The "Ask Man Landers" subplot is moronic. Are advice columns still a thing?

    You knew that lantern was going to break and catch fire. I didn't expect Ava to deliberately pick it up and toss it. Is she trying to commit a murder-suicide? Also, how did Carly manage to knock herself out? But at least the truth about those pills has finally come out. Only took, what, nine months?

    C'mon, Jake. Be the greatest killer of them all. Or turn everybody into zombies. Because every show has to have zombies now.

    "I want the TRUTH!"

    "You can't handle the truth!"

    Crap, nothing new until Tuesday.
    It's funny that all those people excused themselves early from the Ball. Like they knew something was gonna happen.

    All those stud muffins in the room and nobody grabbed the cylinder and ran out with it?

    Maybe Anna will disarm it. With a pair of tweezers and a tube of lipstick.

    Also, how is a biotoxin contagious? Toxins are produced by living things, not living things themselves.

    poison produced by and derived from plants and animals. Biotoxins can be absorbed by ingesting or inhaling the toxin. There are different types of toxins, depending upon the mode of toxicity or biological target, including hemotoxins, mycotoxins, necrotoxins, cytotoxins, and neurotoxins. Examples of biotoxins include abrin, from the jequirity bean or rosary pea (Abrus precatorius); ricin, from castor beans; and strychnine, from Strychnos nux-vomica.

    Contagious, no. Spreadable yes.

    Really? You certainly are well versed in toxicology. Very impressive.

    Ok, all you smart people, question, can a placebo be detected in a pill bottle there are no placebo pills in the bottle? What could you test for?

    Actually, there was a tiny piece of a placebo stuck to the bottom of the pill bottle. Enough, apparently, for testing purposes. Either Sonny or Dr Maddox noticed it while they were discussing the prescription.

    ETA: Sonny poured out the 300mg pills, peered deeply into the bottle and said: "Wait a minute. What the hell's that?"
    It was on Tuesday (5/23).

    Even, if there were tiny piece of a placebo left on the bottom, what would you test for is my question. What do use to make a placebo?

    They also referred to it as an inert material. Basically, the placebo has no drugs whatsoever in it. There are no active ingredients in a placebo, just filler material. When you test it, you would get no reaction to the presence of any drug, therefore you know it's a placebo.

    Yup. Placebos are usually used for blind tests of drugs. One group gets the real drug, another gets a drug that looks and is made of the same base material as the real drug but without the active ingredient.

    If GH ever wanted to get technical, the residue would be just like the base material of the real drug so it would confirm it was a deception and not an accident.

    Of course, that is assuming the pills are consistent throughout and that the active ingredient isn't more in the middle of the pill and the residue was just dust from the edges of the pills.

    I'm not sure if the medicine is spread throughout a pill or concentrated in the center.
