“The Truth Shall Set You Free”…
By now, I hope you’ve all gone over to Facebook to tell them who your favorite GH couple us and why. If not, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/generalhospital/posts/10150930992478731 There are several Jizzers who post every couple of pages…so sad. *shakes head*
The saying “The Truth Shall Set You Free” is something we’ve all heard throughout our lives. My grandpa always said that there was never a circumstance where the truth wasn’t better than a lie, even if you can’t see it at the time. There have been times in life when I’ve seen people crushed by a truth and questioned that certainty, as in some of those times, the truth has ripped someone’s heart out, or was cruel, or at least I thought, was unnecessary. However, I would have to agree with my grandpa that is does set you free…whether you want it to or not.
For Kate and even Connie, the truth is the only thing that shall set her free from the terrible guilt she is carrying for thinking she murdered Cole and Hope, and yet the one person who can give her that truth is Johnny. Oh, how I struggle with loving Johnny one minute and wanting to whack him myself the very next! Until Kate can remember that Johnny asked Connie to take the blame for shooting out Anthony’s tires, the blame and the guilt will be her burden to carry. And Johnny knows this. *sigh* I know that Johnny thinks he has truly learned his lesson about being consumed with trying to hurt Sonny and the collateral damage it causes, but while that’s a step int he right direction, it’s not enough! Kate has been through so much – and just found out that she went through so much more she didn’t even recall. She is dealing with so many things she feels so guilty about! Johnny owes it to Kate to sit her down and say, “The Truth Shall Set You Free”, and then give her the truth she needs.
Perhaps then Johnny will stop being haunted by all of the people whose lives he took because of hatred and anger. While he thinks that giving Carly his very best from here on out, and while he is working so hard to give Starr A life back now that he’ stolen the one she had and loved, he still feels imprisoned by his oh-so-guilty about the things he’s done. It’s why he cannot shake the hauntings from Anthony and Hope! Johnny needs to realize that his only hope for any real peace is that “The Truth Shall Set You Free”.
Sonny continues to move heaven and earth to protect Kate. Too bad he has cried “Wolf!” one too many times when it comes to Johnny being responsible for something terrible, especially since this time Johnny really is the wolf. The Big, Bad One. Dante is riding Sonny about coming clean about Kate, but I have to say, that I am not sure I would trust Dante either if I were Sonny. Last time Sonny trusted him with the truth about Michael’s guilt, he found out that “The Truth Shall Set You Free” isn’t always…TRUE.
I have always liked Luke and Tracy. Honestly, I have always liked the Tracy part of Luke & Tracy more, and never thought he deserved her love and devotion, but she loves the big lug! I really wish Luke didn’t find it so easy to break Tracy’s heart. In fact, it’s the one thing I have always resented most about Luke – his ability to hurt people so easily. I know that Luke was on his way to tell Tracy the truth about him and Anna, but dammit! He could not have honestly believed that the whole “The Truth Shall Set You Free” thing would have applied here! I am actually thinking that Luke deserved that little “time out” with crazy ass Heather! I hope that whatever “Hot Stuff” she has planned with him will make him realize that his life is full of MISERY without his Spanky Buns!
There were so many times I winced at Tracy’s self-assuredness about Luke while going head to head with Anna. Every time she told Anna that Luke was “not that into her”, I cringed! But I think the worst moment had to be when Tracy remembered that she found Anna in Luke’s bed that morning, and the whole truth of the situation began to dawn on her, bit by awful bit. I thought even Anna regretted taking it upon herself to try to convince Tracy that “The Truth Shall Set You Free”. Too bad it was too late. 😦
When I think of “The Truth Shall Set You Free”, I cannot help but think of our beloved Jason and Sam. That saying could not possibly apply more, could it? So many of the things that are tearing and keeping them apart are things based in lies and untruths! Each little lie that Jason and Sam believed has pushed them further and further apart, from Baby JJ’s paternity to the belief that he died that stormy night, and every other lie in between! I am committed to letting TPTB know that I am barely hanging on here. I tell them all of the things I am missing between the BEST COUPLE on Daytime, and I also let them know that this storyline has completely bored me to tears!
I am hoping that this time, “The Truth Shall Set Us ALL Free!”
Hanging in because of all of you,
