    Ron C. Has reached new levels of stupidity. Lets examine the Lani Gabi scenario. Has Gabi forgotten that Lani is a Cop? More importantly…has Lani forgotten that she is a cop?? We all saw Gabi, in the middle of a crowded hospital…..with SURVEILLANCE….admit to Lani…a COP…that she had in her hand a device that she could use to kill Julie. She then walked over, demonstrated how she was willing and able to kill Julie by revving up her heart. Gabi then blackmailed Lani…a COP…into dumping her fiance at the altar. Right there, Lani…a COP…had legal grounds to wrestle Gabi to the ground, grab that cell phone away from her, call for back up, holler that an attempted murder was taking place…and arrest psychotic Gabi! Right there ..she could have arrested her for…..blackmail, uttering threats, attempted murder, possession of a deadly weapon, a d a few other crines. Lets replace Gabi’s cell phone with a gun! If Gabi had a gun…and walked over and threatened to shoot Julie, would Lani have arrested her? Of course she would have! So what is tbe difference??? Gabi is a vulgar frickin nut case, and Lani had grou ds to arrest ber kn the spot!!! It’s getting very tiresome to watch a show with psychos like Kristen, Gina, Eve, Jordan, Gabi, Xander, and others running around. And is it 1957??? Why cant Sarah tell Eric she is pregnant??? Plot driven, moronic, manufactured drama is all this is! Ron gutted GH and left that show with its lowest ratings EVER!!

      Well, Saints preserve us, if it’s getting that tiresome to watch, then by all means stop watching and get some rest. Many of us are thoroughly enjoying the continued renaissance of Days.

      thank the soap gods Ron C is no longer at GH, I feel so sorry for DOOL, it will continue to get worse. I don’t mean to knock the guy but as a writer he has more bad vises then good ones and no disrespect if your a fan of his writing I’m just not able to keep up w/ his level of stupidity and cartoonish style of writing.

      OMG , I think the same, every time I watch Gabi pulling her crap with Lani. I’m also yelling at the TV at Lani to grab the phone and cuff Gabi.This has got to be the stupidest thing they have tried to make us swallow, and don’t even get me started on the crazy Jordan, supposedly running around with a one year old in a little basket that would be for a much younger baby. Rafe is another disappointment, all looks and no action! I’ve about had it with this show. Satan nailed it by saying the new jump coming up will be a big fail. It can only get worse from now on. So to the others who are ” thoroughly enjoying” this garbage, have at it!

      Storylines are getting worse. Half the characters have been brought back to life by Dr. Rolf!

    Dumb, dumb, dumb—especially Days!! GH not too bad. Who is Le gentilhomme masque’? Laura didn’t recognize her son’s eyes? Is it Nikolas?

  4. Satan

    Frankly, both Days AND General Hospital have shitty writing at the moment. It’s a coin flip as to whether Jordan Ridgeway or Drodd is the dumbest character.

    As for the immediate future… I’m sure ReRon’s time jump will be an epic failure. Meanwhile on GH, Valentini seems determined to throw another inferior attempt at “Nikolas Cassadine” in our faces. Either get Tyler Christopher back on board or don’t bother.

      I thought we might have a new boy toy for Ava, as the new Nicolas looks so young in his photo, but he is 41 yrs.old, ha. I was hoping for Tyler.

      Dumbest character: Peter the Puke

        a.k.a. Whiny Heiny. Yeah, he’s also a huge waste of time, but I suspect he’s going to be leaving Port Charles by the time 2019 is over. Of course it will probably be in a body bag, which means he will still be MY problem. He can clean the dragon stables with his pal Shiloh.

          I hope so, he helps ruins the show. Total wimp.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.

From the performances, to the script, to the direction, to the writing his one had it all.
