On Tuesday’s General Hospital:
Sonny and Jason want Johnny to walk away from his father's business, as Leyla walked away from Patrick.
It's hard to tell if Johnny really wants to run his daddy's business or if he just doesn't know what else to do, but when Sonny came offering him a way out, Johnny shut him down cold. Later, he made sure Trevor knew it was he who was in charge. Perceiving Johnny as a wild card, Jason and Sonny braced for a mob war.
At least I feel there is risk and danger with this threat, unlike the countless mob wars we watched between Sonny and Alcazar. Johnny should heed Sonny's words of warning. He has certainly lost a lot for his place in organized crime and Johnny now has a chance to turn away and have a normal future, possibly with Lulu.
Jason and Liz mutually decided it was best for the kids if he's not involved in their lives. Even when Spinelli tried convincing him otherwise, Jason stood firm in his decision, telling his friend he never wanted Jake to be in danger or end up like Johnny. Later, Lucky showed up at Jason's door and told the other man he'd resume the role as Jake's dad as long as he stayed away from the kids and Liz.
In all honesty, I respect Jason and Liz for putting the children's safety first, but who are they fooling? Everyone knows they are not going to stay apart, and after hearing this same ol' song and dance for so long, I'm more than ready to see what happens when they give a relationship a try. I'm still thinking the signs are pointing to Jason trying to make a break for the mob for Liz and Jake's sake.
When Lucky poured his heart to Sam about spending time with the kids and his desire for her to be a part of that, she manipulated it for all it was worth, assuring him she would spend part of the holidays with Lucky and the kids. When Alexis asked her to be available to Nikolas through the holidays, she agreed, but told her of her Christmas Eve plans with Lucky.
