On Monday's General Hospital:

Jason was outraged when Spinelli refused to help break him out of jail. After letting his mentor vent about how helpless he feels behind bars when his baby is God-knows-where, Spinelli explains that if he escapes he would be PC's most wanted. He warns Jason would end up splitting the police officers' attention as they would have to be looking for both Jason and Jake. Though he is initially furious, Jason understood and even thanked Spinelli for helping him level out.

I can't get enough of these two as a team! Spinelli is not only Jason's protégé and his biggest defender, but is proving to be a true friend.

Over at the Spencers, Liz and Lucky got into another huge knock down, drag out fight. Lucky accused Liz of not believing in him. Liz fired back that she didn't have the energy to stroke his massively damaged ego, so instead she ran to Jason so he could hold and comfort her. When she later returned home, she and Lucky made up and vowed to not let this come between them, and to stay focused on finding Jake.

Maybe it would be easier for Liz to explain to her husband why she keeps visiting Jason, if she told him the truth!

While looking for the revisions to the Everyday Heroes script, Sam came across Amelia's "file of damaging evidence against Sam." She learned not only that Amelia knew exactly who she was, but that she was the daughter of the man she had killed in what appears to be self-defense. Having nowhere else to turn, she went to her daughter's grave and hashed it all out. Her final conclusion was to tell Jason the truth before Amelia could. (Too late, honey!) At episode's end, she confessed to Jason that she's known for weeks that he was Jake's father.

I am so happy to see this story finally opening up. Now, let's tell Lucky the truth and let the pieces fall where they may. I'm betting Liz and Lucky fall apart and eventually we get a reuniting of Jason and Liz. What I don't know is how I feel about that pairing.

While chasing after his brother, Jax finds himself staring at the wrong end of a gun being held by a big scary bartender who says he's under orders from Jerry. Carly showed up and saved him by posing as Jerry's wife to the bartender. You'd think the two would want to make a clean escape while they could, but no. They sat down and rehashed the same argument they've been having for weeks. Carly wants him to put her and the boys first, Jax needs to help his brother if they can. Neither is going to get what they want by the looks of the two huge guys who approached them at episode's end.

Sonny puts two and two together and calls Kate out about setting off the fire alarm to break up his little fling with Amelia. He tells Kate the only reason she could have for doing that is that she wants him all to herself. Why does she keep protesting? It's obvious it's true.

Alexis showed up at the Everyday Heroes set to renegotiate Sam's contract and got a look at The File.

    I am SOOOOO ready for this babydaddy drama to be over!!!!

    But I agree, don’t know how I feel about Liz and Jason getting together. So many people would flip and make their lives hell. And I’m not sure it would work anyway.

    It does seem like a long time, and when you think about it the story was set in motion almost a year ago with the “blackout.”

    Lucky is supposed to be a detective, right? Yet, he can’t figure out Liz and Jason got something going on?

    I use to think Liz was this fade in the background sort of character, but in the last several months with all the crying and whining, and lying and scheming to keep her secret, I think she deserves the fall out she’s going to get from Lucky when the truth comes out.

    I also, don’t see the “Liason” chemistry so many other fans seem to like. I also don’t see Jason and Sam coming out on the other side of this still together, so who knows. Maybe Jason and Liz will grow on me.

    I believe that Elizabeth character as a goody-goody is a whole lie. I feel the only reason she told jason not to tell lucky the truth was because she felt that jason was still in love with sam, so instead, chosed to stay with lucky as a way to keep from being alone. As for Jason and Sam’s relationship, I feel that sam should have come upfront with the truth about her past to Jason. If she had, maybe Jason would have considered somebody else as the bady napper.

    Jason and Sam relationship is strong enough to get through this. Why would the writers make the couple reunite only to be broken up again because of babymama drama. I’m sick of GH making the people who had a one night stand just fall in lovc. What’s up with that. I hope they change the tune pretty soon or else I’m switching to AMC.

    I’m not sure, Sam, why they would struggle to put them back together only to break them up again, but I do know the chemistry has not been the same since their breakup last summer.

    I agree about Liz’s motives not being pure. She’s in love with Jason but married Lucky anyway. The problem is if she was with Jason she’d nag him to death about ‘his profession’ because it’s what the character has become — judgmental and hypocritical.

  • Robin Kavanagh

    See, I don’t agree that Liz’s character has become judgemental and critical. I think she recognizes the bad decisions she has made and holds other people to the standards she holds herself. She’s been attacked over and over from the alpha female types and I think instinctively comes back with equal ‘tude.

    Historically, the GH writers have loved this dichotemy of the bad girls hating the good girls and portraying them as sanctimonious do-gooders. I don’t think that Liz or Robin go out of their way to hurt or mess with other people like Carly and Sam do.

    That said, I acknowledge Liz’s feelings for Jason, but really what was she to do? I think it’s perfectly understandable to want one thing, but know it’s not going to work and then move on with your life. I agree with you in that she should never have married Lucky again, but w/e; the writers did what they wanted and created this whole tangled mess.

    Hi Robin —

    I do agree with you that Liz probably believed marrying Lucky was the best thing she could do for her children and also that she hoped she could set aside her feelings for Jason. I also agree that her and Robin get put down too much by the Carly and Sam types.

    I really liked the character Liz, but I think what gets under my skin the most as of late is the ultra-defensive and mean spirited attitude toward Lucky ie: not going to court with Lucky about Laura so she could visit Jason.

    I guess I’d have more sympathy for the character if I felt like she was really trying with her marriage but couldn’t get over her heart, instead – the way I view it – she’s lying to Lucky and being true to Jason… not much different than what Lucky was doing with Maxie last summer only there are no drugs involved.

    That being said, I would really love it if Liz would see what she’s doing and seriously work it out with her husband. I guess mostly because I just don’t see a spark between her and Jason. I know a lot of people do, so maybe it’s just me.

    number one liz and jason have lots of sparks and the only reason she took back lucky because when ever anything go wrong between liz and lucky people like her so called friend and family make her feel bad because lucky start acting like the victim who never makes mistakes in his life.secondly after lucky screws up in his first marrige to liz and she wanted her marrige to end every one gets on her case about her not want to forgive lucky and taking him back.third if you people were watching gh scence’s liz was making it very clear to everyone she was taking lucky back.

  • Blogcritics magazine

    what I ment to say in my first statement at the end my statement was that liz make it clear to every one including lucky she was going to take him back but because of everyone and their big mouth accept jason they want liz to take lucky backy when she went truth with the divorce lulu,carly,adury her grandmother,nik,and lucky other rest of friends and family keeps on forcing liz to take back lucky when their first marrige start fallen apart.everyone on the show accept jason expect her to be the one to do every thing by herself .

    I don’t know if you noticed, but this is a recap of an episode that ran nearly four months ago… not that my opinions on Liz and Lucky have changed too much, but a lot has happened since June.

    I have to laugh because from the comment thread we were expecting the paternity secret to surface ‘any day,’ and we’re Still waiting. I’m hearing now it will happen during the Black and White Ball, set to commence next week (and last most of Nov. sweeps).

    It was a huge Liz and Lucky day today, look for my commentary in an article posted later tonight of early tomorrow.

  • Blogcritics magazine

    I meant to say in my first and second statement in the end of my first statement I made a mistake and also in my second one.I ment to say was liz told everyone including lucky that she was not taking back lucky but every time the poor women diceded to try and make a life of her own people keep on shoving the whole guilt trip on her shoulder when she didn’t fall for it they decided to act like a bitch to her especially carly and sonny who should have not been the two last people to judge liz for her mistakes because carly and sonny mistakes are worse.

  • Blogcritics magazine

    look at sonny who organize a mob organization for power and control and also for money and sleep with a con artist,gold digger who sleeps with men for money a women name sam MCcall and end up getting her pregnant when sonny finds out sam was pregnant sonny pay off jason to pretend to be the father of sam child so that carly wouldn’t find out but she did at the end.even before that sonny sue carly for cutsody off the boys with sam help.as for people taking sam said over liz that just plain mest up in every way arround.

  • Blogcritics magazine

    I know liz is jake perternity and shouldn’t have lied about it or keep it a sceret or as jason to give up his child but you people got to understand liz did planed on getting pregnant by no one she made mistakes and that whats makes her human just like everyone else on the show.and any good parents who’s in the same situation or almost were in the same situation got to understand a parent got to do what they have to do to protect your children out of harms way to keep them safe and happy even it means putting their happyness in front of your own and thats what makes a excellent parent because there will to give there happyness to protect their children .

  • Blogcritics magazine

    I ment to say that keep jake perternity a sceret and ask jason to give up his child. in my third statement in the first sentence and as for carly judging liz.carly should also be the last person to judge liz on her mistake when carly have done with micheal before he was even born and after he was born witch carly didn’t have any real reason she have done it to AJ and carly still didn’t feel guilty for keep micheal away from his real father when AJ died and micheal end up believing he have killed his father.

    you people need to shut the fuck up you evil bitch’s just shut up and leave elizabeth and jason alone . And not because jason doesn’t want sam doesn’t mean he should live alone so your little ego can be strock get a life and jason deserve to be happy just as every body esle . as for elizabeth you people need to get off her back . Not because liz doesn’t want lucky any more doesn’t mean she and her boys should live a unhappy life because when children parents are unhappy the children could see it and they wouldn’t be happy unless there mother is happy so leave liz and jason alone so they can be happy with the children for good.
