Michael has more reason to hate Ava than Sonny/Carly do, and it's magnified because he's got to tie himself in knots to not hate them too.  Being the loved and cared for child of such awful people fucks with your head. 

 

Michael is a fairly decent and moral person now, but all of his childhood is wrapped up in some seriously fucked up situations and moral perspectives.  He loves his family, and can't sustain a raging hate for them for very long, despite AJ's death, so he's got to do some emotional back flips to not go bat shit over the whole thing.

Technically, what happened with Avery and Mike can be traced right back to Nelle messing with Carly. If she hadn't, then Carly would have gone to the park as she was supposed to and dropped Avery off with Ava as was agreed. 

I don't think so.  Griffin offered to have her do the tests later when Pilar called, but Carly is so pigheaded and self involved that she blew it off.  It was dark out before she even left the hospital and she genuinely expected that Pilar and Avery and Mike were still at the park when she came in with Chase?  That's stupid.

Has Drew been accused of eating too many twinkies? Starting shooting women in the head for some extra cash? Developed crazy eyes and started sleeping with an amnesiac and not telling him who he is? If not, he hasn't been thrown under the bus. This is more like being gently driven over by a scooter.

This was noted at Haus Nutmeg, and speculated that, when Ava finds out that Nelle is indirectly responsible SHE KIDNAPPED AVERY!!! that Ava will hang Nelle out to dry for Carly.

 No, it was RC/FV refusal to allow wimmins to have jobs.

I agree that the writers are pulling a lazy copout by claiming that Sam was feeling stifled on her relationship with Drew. But, i don't think it's Burton's fault.  The bad writing for Sam is on them.  They are using Drew as a scapegoat because they are pulling a 180 with her character after failing to provide any foundation for the huge shift in character when they moved her from Jason to Silas/Patrick.

They're echoing crap from Twitter as an excuse for their own crappy writing. Sam was OOC for years, and that could have been written as growth from becoming a parent/single parent or reaction to the trauma of losing her son, getting him back and immediately losing her husband - but it wasn't, because all Cartini cared about was using her to establish ME.

 

The writing for Sam would change whenever the writers wanted to portray a new plot or story. That's what would happen. For example, she was still investigating and "adventuring" with both Silas and Patrick. She was never scared of the danger or wanted to put "kids first." Hell, she left Danny with Monica while she went across state lines, climbed walls at Wyndemere, flew to Greece. But then Sam would suddenly become innocent little housewife when they inserted "mysterious, dangerous" Jake Doe or when Jake Doe was revealed to be Jason or when NuJason was revealed to be Drew. The writers always wanted to contrast Jason vs.  New Guy. Sam always suffered because of it because she then looked inconsistent.

Emma is everything I dislike about child characters.  She isn't exactly a young Meryl Streep when it comes to saying her lines.  Then she has those lines that you wonder if the writers didn't realize how annoying they were.  Lines like, "Of course I was able to find it.  I come from a long line of spies."  But, somehow, that girl has got me.  I just adore her. She is absolutely adorable and just grabs me when she is on my screen.  Wouldn't mind them putting her under contract and making her a regular.  It'd be great to bring Robin back with her.

Eww. My eyes.  I don't need Liz and Franco weirdo creepy sex scenes.  And this is coming from a person who doesn't hate Franco like seems to be the norm.

Okay, I get that Dr. Bensch is supposed to be a major creeper, but as far as Kiki knows, all he did was try to kiss her and she pulled away.  Because of that, she seems to be overreacting.  Don't get me wrong. Considering her age, his age, and each of their positions, I think it is very wise for her to keep her guard up, but blaming any and everything on her rejecting him comes across as petulant.  I wish that they would write this storyline better. Have her be a bit more mature, keeping her voice calm when she speaks to him, and keeping an eye out for what he is up to or have him actually acting a little more creepy towards her to warrant outbursts. This in-between thing just pisses me off because I feel like, while we know Kiki is right to be suspicious, she comes across as immature which makes me feel almost like they are trying to undermine all of the sexual harassment cases that happen all the time. Almost like they want us to think she is in the wrong. Does that make sense? I'm having a hard time putting into words what is so obnoxious about it.

Oh dear, you guys, I am not here for the story the show seems to be hinting at/setting up that Franco is going to on an "adventure" to find the other children abused by Harvey, possibly with Liz riding shotgun as his ever-constant cheerleader.  Barraging into the lives of these people - presumably so they could praise Franco for being brave or whatever - would not be cool.

It also looks really, really bad if Franco and Liz presumably care so much about these children Harvey abused, when neither of them showed empathy or remorse or cared how Sam/Michael were impacted by what Franco did to them. Is Franco going to demand that all these children move on now that Harvey is dead?

Sonny seems to be wetting his pants over it.  And it's been minutes since we had a trial on this show.  And Ava can try to get Avery back due to Sonny's legal problems.  The joy of it all!

Does Liz not believe Jim Harvey's victims are entitled to their privacy? Why in the world would she encourage Franco to contact a group of strangers? He's not law enforcement investigating a crime, he's a private citizen and has no business prying into the painful history of sexual assault victims. It's also really tone deaf to have Franco, the guy who consistently tried to force forgiveness from the sufferers of his own sex crimes, to now be held up as a champion for victims' rights.

A little bit of precocious Emma goes a loooong way. Henri is similar to Henrik and Cesar is similar to Caesar, so obviously these things are all related, like what the fuck kind of logic is this? It's so tenuous and dumb.

Peter's "holy shit, are you serious?!" face during Nina's life story was my favorite part today. Hopefully he'll remember all that stuff for when she inevitably attacks him for lying about his identity, because if Nina can be forgiven for stealing a baby from the womb then surely she could extend that same forgiveness to Peter.

Given that Maxie doesn't appreciate people trying to force her to get along with Lulu, it's a tad hypocritical of her to try and force Nina and Peter together. Her hair looked nice though.

I wonder if it was Frank's idea too for Nina to shove a bunch of food in her mouth while talking.

The girl who plays Emma is cute, but I think a teen Emma would be more interesting and would help give Anna a reason to be in Port Charles. (Sometimes I wonder what the hell Anna is doing in town, given Robin lives in California and the WSB doesn't have an office in Port Charles.) But it's moot, the show is not interested in a teen scene that can do more than hold hands.

Grr at Emma shoving in a Spencer reference. 

Took me three replays to realize Drew said "how's Franco doing?"

It reminded of an improv show I was watching the other day and one of the actors had a prompt that was "a melodramatic private investigator finding ridiculous clues", and he kept saying stuff like "here's a banana peel . . . and a jar of rubber bands . . . it must have been the cat who committed the crime!"

Why did Alexis enable Sam to go off on her PI adventure with Spinelli and Jason? By taking the children off Sam's hands and back to Port Charles Alexis freed her daughter to abandon the children literally and foist them off on someone else while she went to play detective.

In an odd parallel, Anna is also endangering her granddaughter by keeping her close during a spy operation.

And meanwhile Avery is missing and vulnerable with Mike because Carly didn't keep her word to meet them.

I think Sam needs to lose custody of Scout, Anna needs to be forbidden to see Emma for awhile, and Carly and Sonny need to lose custody of Avery.

Prior to watching yesterday's episode, someone was watching it in another room and I was overhearing bits and pieces.  When Alexis made that phone call at the end, I honestly thought she had called CPS on Sam.  I thought - Woah!  Alexis is going all tough love.

I would have no problem with them playing the story out, but they don’t have to throw Sam’s relationship with Drew under the bus to do it.  Smacks of poor storytelling.

I agree that she should have been way more conflicted when Jason first got back.

Meanwhile this would be a perfect time for the writers to show chinks in Jason’s armor but they just won’t do it.  They insist that Jason be “perfect”.  And Guza’s not even there anymore.  I just don’t get it!  

Sam should have been conflicted immediately.  They could've then had Sam choose Drew and have Drew go through a crisis when he gets his memories back.  He will remember Kim, and he will finally wonder how much of his feelings for Sam are his, and how much were implanted with Jason's memories. 

Like others have stated over the months, it's frustrating that Drew spends so little time wondering about his past.  Could he spend five minutes wondering if there's a wife and other children out there?  Most military men are married.  I'm sure we're supposed to believe that when the military came after Drew to arrest him for AWOL he was told he was single.  That doesn't mean he didn't have a girlfriend/ex-girlfriend with children.  Does he not have one single friend, co-worker, military buddy who could show up and flesh out his past?

I kept wondering this, but Show needed a way for Ava to be portrayed as a Monstah and Horrible Person, so of course, the FBI is going to be involved ready to shoot Mike, and it will be Ava's fault.

I'm hoping the FBI agents are Mulder and Scully, they find Mike, who tells them Avery has been taken by aliens, and after a while, we find out Avery was returned in the year 1995, and grew up to be Francesca. Although Michael realizes he dated his sister niece, Sonny and Carly are thrilled they have a Morgan replacement to mold and to preen over, even if she's a Girl Child Woman. Bonus: She already hates Ava for being mean to her at Kelly. Special 55th Anniversary/Nurses Ball appearance by Casey the Alien.

I also wonder if this will be used to put a wedge between Nelle and Ava.  I don't think the revelation of the Carly gaslighting would upset Ava very much, but the fact that it supposedly allowed a confused Mike to take off with Avery and endanger her will piss her off.  Maybe she will use this info to attempt to get back into the good graces of CarSon.

THIS. Franco cannot be redeemed, precisely because the writers continue to paint him with a creepy fascination, obsession, and involvement with sexual assault victims and crimes done to the victims. He was about to marry Liz, who is a past victim. He tried to make Sam think he had abused/raped her. He and his lawyer claimed that his tumor caused him to rape, torture and kill more victims. He tracked down and baited Jim Harvey, a perpetrator, apparently intending to cross-question, confront, and kill him. And now he wants to find and pry into the painful stories of assault victims he hasn't met so he can play a champion's role on their behalf?

Don't you believe it. This is a new way for Franco to stay involved vicariously in the salacious details and suffering of these strangers. He will dig up new stories to tantalize his imagination, all the while pretending sympathy and/or outrage, getting public admiration and Liz's esteem for himself in the process.

Get this awful sick character off my TV screen, please.

I expect that it will end up being Nelle's or Ava' s fault but ...

If Carly told Pilar about Mike's condition,  then it is Pilar' s fault for leaving Avery alone with Mike. If Carly didn't tell her,  then it's Carly's fault.  And Sonny's for not arranging adequate care for Mike.

I just heard a clip from Barbara Bush's commencement speech "Mothers and Fathers,  if you have children,  you must put those children first." Sam, are you listening?  I wonder how Alexis explained to Drewthat Sam sent her children home with grandma so she could do capers with Jason.

I am so adverse to uber precocious children. Emma was extremely annoying. 

Peter's reaction to Nina's story was pretty priceless. 

Dr. Bensch is a jerk. He's also gross. What I'm getting is that TJ should technically have gotten the shadow job, but because Dr. Perv had the deciding vote, Kiki was chosen. 

Please stop with the whole Franco should find the other children who have been molested by Uncle Jim. That stuff is personal and Liz has no business suggesting something like that. I also never wanna see them have sex again.

You know, I'm torn about the Bensch/Lauren scenes. Bensch is right that she can't do anything to help find Avery and Mike, and doctors need to put their personal problems aside and do their job. On the other hand, a missing sibling isn't nothing.

I’m just disappointed this show isn’t going directly to “Kiki goes to HR.” 

Rather than make this a long, drawn out ordeal, show it like how it should be dealt with. How it would be dealt with in today’s age.  The show shouldn’t be sending the message that a sexual harassment victim should legitimately be afraid of reporting completely inappropriate conduct.   They should not be telling a story of a young woman NOT knowing when a line has been crossed, when it has been crossed as blatantly as it has here. They should not be telling a story of a young woman not reporting for fear of retaliation. No hospital — at least no hospital that doesn’t want a discrimination administrative complaint — is going to find against Kiki. Either her claim will be substantiated, or it won’t. If it isn’t, they’ll separate Dr. Letch from Kiki.  If this is the third, fourth, fifth time Dr. Letch has been reported, it’ll be time for a big ol’ sit down. 

No alleged accuser is going to get railroaded.  No alleged victim should be in fear of losing their job, etc.  Report it. Have safeguards put in place. Bing, bam, done.

Maybe I'm wrong (perfectly understandable since the writing on this show is shit) but I got the impression that Drew was kidnapped by Faison for his plans, right after the relationship with Kim. That's why she couldn't find him and why the SEALS thought he went AWOL. Because he was scheduled for the 3-month mission but instead just vanished. And, assuming he was then being mind controlled or whatever to wipe all of his memories and implant Jason's, would he have had access to date anyone else? Because I've just always assumed he was kidnapped and locked up until Helena sent him out to Port Charles, where he first showed up in the hospital as Jake Doe.

I think Drew was kidnapped in the same year as Jason's shooting, not 14 years ago.  

 

I actually watched yesterday's episode instead of fast forwarding through the whole thing and 2 things stood out.

 

First, I don't mind that Ava wants the FBI involved.  As of now they've been gone overnight.  They could easily have left PC or even NY, so wider police involvement is absolutely called for, and if saying it's a kidnapping gets that to happen, fuck yes it's a kidnapping!

 

2 what the hell was with Dante?  LIke, saving a file and taking her laptop off the bed is such a problem, she's too interested in her job!!! Dios Mio!!  WTF was with that scene?  I'm sorry I don't want an expensive piece of tech that has files I might want later to get tossed on the floor.  And I was writing something, let me PRESS A BUTTON!!  That was totally out of his character as far as I've known it this many years in.  

 

And the Franco thing... I don't know.  It was obviously Liz pushing for him to go talk to those other victims, but he's probably going to do it, and I don't wanna see that.  I've seen this from the other side in a way and it's not pretty.  

A man was arrested and sent to jail for molesting his kid, so a member of his family decided to call his ex wife and warn her that it had happened and to talk to her daughters (because he had been their stepdad and part of their lives for a few years) and make sure that nothing had happened to them.  And the whole family heard about it, and then one of the daughters disclosed that she had been abused.  She has not, under any circumstances, wanted to talk to her mother about it, or for anyone to know.  She barely acknowledged it to herself and having it thrown out there messed her up and sent her into a tailspin.  That was horrible to watch and I super don't want to see it on TV.

I think the corporate world may be ahead of the academic world in this area. Kiki is in a highly vulnerable position in medicine, a very competitive field. She is at the start of a long learning curve. Medicine traditionally has an atmosphere of prejudice and even "hazing" against the young and vulnerable women and men who are struggling to keep their feet on the ladder. Besides the military, in how many other fields are sleep deprivation, shaming and rudeness, and bullying considered fair methods during training? Actually Bensch may not be so unique among his peers in using sexual harassment as a cruel means of handling an idealistic young female who aspires in a traditional masculine-dominated field.

The other thing too, is that according to both TJ and Kiki herself, she wasn't deserving of the shadow position, at least, according to academics.  TJ, apparently, is a stronger student (and who knows how many others) over Kiki.  If she blows the whistle, it becomes a he said, she said and people may not beleive that Bensch gave her the position without something in return on her part.  He can easily lie and say they've been sleeping together, which is why he gave her the shadow program and now she's complaining.  It's one of the reasons she should have told Epiphany when she saw her shadow schedule and saw that it was all Bensch all the time.  Have something on record with someone before it goes too far.

The other thing too, is that according to both TJ and Kiki herself, she wasn't deserving of the shadow position, at least, according to academics.  TJ, apparently, is a stronger student (and who knows how many others) over Kiki.  If she blows the whistle, it becomes a he said, she said and people may not beleive that Bensch gave her the position without something in return on her part.  He can easily lie and say they've been sleeping together, which is why he gave her the shadow program and now she's complaining.  It's one of the reasons she should have told Epiphany when she saw her shadow schedule and saw that it was all Bensch all the time.  Have something on record with someone before it goes too far.  

 

Agree with all of this. 

Also, it was lovely seeing TJ yesterday.  I can do without Molly and her screeching, but he is always a welcome sight.  Yes, please do volunteer at the hospital more, dude (hear that, writers?).

I loved how Nina told her story, too

I'm not a fan of MST and her tics but that made me laugh.  How she spilled out all the cray cray then leans back and says, "your turn". 

I usually tune out Nina (and concentrate on how hot MSt looks), but her Minute Oral History made me pause the DVR and give her a standing Ovation.

I know. KSt's "Oh, brother" expressions were also funny. (Though, Maxie, what did you expect?) That whole bit was very well done.

Nina has dated and married more than one "guy that the entiiiiiire town hated." Heh.

I, too, loved Nina's nonchalant way of saying that entire speech and her last line about having a little girl that was the living embodiment/representation of the child she lost was the closest she has ever come to saying out loud why she wanted Charlotte so desperately, that she was willing to marry a psychopathic murderer and actively work to keep that child from her mother to get the child she wanted.

I'm seeing red. Avery is not Josslyn's sister and Mike is not her grandfather. Her dad is Jax and he is a million times better than Sonny. And, if memory serves, is unable to come back to Port Charles because of something Sonny did. Joss had officially gone from boring to hated in my book.

Is Carly pregnant or just gaining weight? I’ve noticed the weight gain in the past few weeks and today she kept her coat over her belly the entire show. Hmmmm.

St. Franco: Poor Sonny and Ava, I can't even imagine what they are going through.

Me: You didn't give a fuck about that when you aided and abetted Avery's first kidnapping sans tumor, dillhole.

I think they hand-waved that Sonny "fixed it" so now Jax can come back into the country, but your point still stands.

Also, my 'red' moment was the other day when one of the idiots (Sonny, Carly or Michael--can't remember which one) said "Avery loves and trusts Mike."  Yeah, she just fucking met him, so no, shovel that shit somewhere else, Corinthii.

Why is Drew being nice to Carly?  She's a bitch who dropped him the minute he wasn't her BFF Jason and went out of her way to try and ruin his marriage.  I mean, feel bad about the whole Avery stitch, but Carly can take an Uber to the hospital.

Between that and Liz talking to Drew about how Betsy could think to let that man (Jim Harvey) into her home around her children, the rage was strong in this episode. The writers don't care that they constantly undermine Franco's "redemption," and they are constantly throwing Liz under the bus in their numerous attempts to do so.
