Focusing On The Things That Keep Us Watching


“What am I going to do with you?”

That was the question Jason asked Sam today when she confessed she just really wanted to see him.

The second that question left his perfect lips, I immediately started formulating a list of answers, and the list was extensive. I mean, REALLY?

I have to tell you that I would not be surprised to find out that Kelly Monaco volunteers her time for JaSam scenes. I mean, most of US would PAY to be Kelly Monaco on a day like this! I am not sure what changed in that Writing Room over at GH, but I LOVE IT! Keep it up! 

I love that in the midst of all of the worry, drama, guilt and blame surrounding Michael’s actions, Jason and Sam can still have a light moment, share a smile, and even a giggle. This is their NORMAL, and it’s beautiful. I also have to appreciate how it gives these two PHENOMENAL actors the chance to work their acting muscles…really they can play out any scenario: emotional, funny, angry, suspenseful, awkward; and make it look believable. They each have amazing range, but together they take it to a whole new level.

While I happily give credit to the writers for the new and improved, sexy, funny couple that is JaSam, I also have to give props to Steve and Kelly on working their chemistry…the 90 seconds they had to make this scene work for their fans would barely be enough time for other couples to get warmed up.  Yet, the second Steve asked that question and Kelly shrugged, a collective scream was heard round the world from JaSam fans. That was where the magic started…and their lips hadn’t even met. These two have the ability to go from zero to sizzzzling in mere seconds! Wow… This is what supercouples are made of!

In other Port Charles Happenings…there were some other good questions, though certainly not of the MILLION DOLLAR variety, throughout today’s episode. Let’s tackle them, shall we?

1.)  Nik – Did it make you feel justified to bring up Laura’s rape to Luke? When Nik goes dark, it’s lights out! He showed no mercy as he tried to deflect the accountability issue. As hard as it was to hear, GH has such a long and rich history…that the writers would be crazy to not use it. Besides, not many soaps could have current characters talking about something that happened almost 30 years ago and still affects them! We’re a lucky bunch!

2.)  Not so lucky? Well…Lucky! He just cannot catch a break! First, he fails to get his wife pregnant WITHOUT a condom, while her ONS manages it WITH a condom. Then he is the only one who doesn’t know that he’s not the kid’s father, and when he finally hears it, he has to hear it from the baby’s real father! By the way, am I the only one who hopes that after the latest Cassadine reveals his latest mind game with Lucky Spencer, Jake really turns out to be Lucky’s just so he can finally gain the upper hand with Liz? I mean, really. Anyway…Finally Lucky seems to get it all going in the right direction and now his hopefully-soon-to-be-again wife decides she wants one more thing she can’t have, and even worse, it’s his brother. Which brings me to my next question…

3.) Has anyone seen Lainey? Liz’s “I Only Want What I Can’t Have” disorder has a medical name, I’m sure. She needs to get help, and soon. Usually people with this disorder must come to endure a shock therapy I like to call, “NOW YOU HAVE NOTHING.” Some people don’t survive that shock therapy in one piece, but hey, it may be the only thing that will help Liz.

And speaking of doctors…

4.) How cute are Drs. Drake, Scorpio and Hunter? The writers are doing a great job to provide us with some functional, if not typical, families. I love the interaction between the three. I love that they haven’t ever forgotten that Matt and Patrick care about each other, and I hope that whatever comes next for the happily married Drakes, that Matt will be there to ensure that they always “play nice.”

5.) Dominic The Multi-Tasker? Listen, dude. I am a multi-tasker. I respect other multi-taskers. But when you can’t seem to handle multiple tasks, I say take it one task at a time. The only thing you need to focus on right now is not blowing your cover. Instead, you are charming Graciella’s apron off so you can get her to give you the ashes, you’re falling all over yourself with Lulu  so you can get her to give you her a—, um, you get the point, and you even tried to share a canoli with Sam so you can get some 411 on the disappearance of Claudia! You are all over the place, and on top of that Ronnie is dogging your heels shouting that you’re a cop! I don’t want you to get shot  before you and Sonny find out that you’re not just mob family! So please! Focus!

Ah, GHers, Port Charles is crackling with more than just fireplaces burning evidence! It’s crackling with excitement! There’s something different in the air, and it has nothing to do with the upstate NY autumn.

Seasons change, and so do lives…just like that. Whose life will never be the same as the drama unfolds? We’ll have to wait and see!
