SOAP BYTES: Target Practice, Alamania and Starr Manning Arrives in Port Charles
GH BYTES: So Cole Thornhart (Van Hughes) escaped from prison on One Life to Live and reunited with Starr (Kristen Alderson), only to possibly be killed off on General Hospital? Heavens to Betsy! Daytime Confidential’s Melodie Aikels is right, if Cole dies, Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell) needs to come to Port Charles and take out the mob. #MadMarty2012 Welcome to Port Charles, Starr!
Garin Wolf is a hack. The man, who gave us the reprehensible story of Lisa (Brianna Brown) using Robin's (Kimberly McCullough) blood as a weapon, left us with one final, stink bomb — the revelation that The Lady in White scratched and clawed her way out of the petrified womb of Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers)!
Barring the existence of a secret vat of Mikkos Cassadine’s sperm, Irina cannot be a Cassadine. Helena is only a Cassadine by marriage afterall. Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) has more claim to the Cassadine name than Irina does. This isn’t rocket science, but maybe she's had her daughter on ice all these years? Who cares. Not me. I have never accepted Sam (Kelly Monaco) being Alexis’ daughter, but that development was Shakespearian by comparison. It is unfortunate such drivel is undermining the fantastic performances we've been seeing on GH this week.
Oh, and does anyone care that Helena has been holding Luke (Anthony Geary) captive? I used to love Luke and Tracey (Jane Elliot), but Luke is gone so often now I don’t really notice his absences anymore.
