As Garth Algar would put it, "If you're going to spew, spew into this," whereupon he hands the intended spewer a small dixie cup.
Let me tell you, my little Sagekateers, you are going to spew.
OK, so I'm going to set it up for you.
After a lot of freakin back and forth, Jason and Brenda end of staying married because Brenda isn't ready to marry Jax, so she refuses to sign the papers, explaining herself to Jason. Later, she lies and tells Jax that JASON wouldn't give her a divorce. He pushes Brenda for action and she balks, so he says, "Hmmm, that's odd" and goes about his wedding plans. Fortunately, the stuff from his wedding to Skye is probably still warm, so I expect he can save himself some cash-ola. (Pass the cup)
Sonny tells Ric that he plans to send Courtney away to college to get her out of the Port Charles mob scene and help her make a good life for herself. Jason, having been summoned to the manor house by Lord Sonny, arrives while Ric is there, the two bash together their massive bellies and say, "What'up??" quite a lot. After they have completed their male superiority rituals, Ric pokes at Jason, telling him that Sonny is going to send Courtney away.
Jason and Courtney decide to interrupt the Sonny-Carly "Lovefest in the Woooods, 2003" with the news of their luuuuuvvvvv. On the way, they notice there's a blizzard going on when they end up in a car crash. Jason is seriously injured and (pass the cup) Courtney keeps him conscious by painting picture of their vine-covered-white-picket-fence-havin future. Jason manages to tell her he wuvs her before he collapses.
They're rescued, he has surgery, lives and Sonny (having heard from Elizabeth through Ric's manipulations, about Courtney and Jason) tells him that he has to stop seeing Courtney, then makes a slashing motion across his throat with his mobster finger while giving Jason the winky eye (OK, so maybe that was an embellishment, but he DOES tell him to get off his sister in a permanent kinda way).
Sonny and Carly are the victims of an almost shooting at Carly's new club. Ned bullies the info out of Faith (is that is a sicko relationship or WHAT?) that she was behind it and he growls at her (again) about making decisions without his valuable input. She tells him she only wanted to scare Sonny and Carly. Ned gets Zander to plant drugs in Carly's club and then gets an anonymous tip to Mac, who finds them there. Ric successfully negotiates the problem until Mac no longer has a case.
Summer has her hands full in the father-son game. After reading Luke and Laura's love letters, she is blown away by the depth of their love. Lucky shows her his very sudden, deep feelings for her and when she begins to feel for him, she pushes him away. Lucky says, "Hey, you're pushing me away!" and Summer says, "Pfft, yeah" and tells him that love is for Mommies and Puppy Dogs. She later shows up at Lucky's room and they make out like bunnies. Buttttt....Luke sees it. Ew. (Paper cup please).
Zander and Gia continue to grow closer as he dumps the drugs and vows to get his life in order. She and Nik almost get to a good place again when he sees evidence of him going behind her back to get Zander out of her life. That's when the split happens for real. (Forget the paper cup...give me the crying towel).
Skye continues to have a terrible time of it. After Scott grills her, she goes back to Alcazar's suite (is this or is it not a crime scene??) and begins to have memories of another woman being there. At last, her fears that she might well have killed Alcazar are resolved. Having previously heard Jax offering Scott some kindly defense of Skye, she develops a plan to get Jax to come back to her. When Scott finds her at the suite, she threatens to jump from the balcony. As she suspected, Jax comes to her rescue. Skye confides to Jax that she now remembers a woman in the room the night of the murder. Jax promises to stand by her. (Towel to catch the tears from hysterical laughter, please)
Alexis goes even further nutty. Ned catches sight of someone who looks remarkably like Kristina. Cameron becomes aware of this and mentions it to Alexis, but is surprised by her response. Ned comes very close to finding Alexis dressed in Kristina-wear. Alexis is well able to act somewhat normal some of the time, but goes loopy in a Niki Smith kinda way every now and then. One must wonder what evil befalls if she ends up ever having to take care of Kristina herself. When Alexis agrees to defend Skye of murder charges, Cameron has to wonder what she's up to. Cameron eventually catches Alexis red handed...wigged. (CUP!)
I'm betting a lot of you know the joke behind that one. ;) HONEY, THIS IS THE GOSSSSIPPP!! So pull up your chair and your drink and your catitude and let's dish, Darling!!
The big push is, of course, the Emily recast (or not). I spent most of today tromping all over my sources, trying to squeeze out some vintage wine of wisdom on the Emily situation. Here's the info. We know from her message board that Amber Tamblyn posted she had lunch on the set recently, revisited friends and that there was NO WORD of an Emily recast. All spoilers, not rumors, say Emily will be back as a recast by Valentine's Day. Yet even though that sits as a little over 2 weeks away (and GH tapes 2-3 weeks in advance of the episode's broadcast), there is NO WORD of WHO won the coveted role!!! This is pretty much unheard of and certainly, Amber has concealed info from her fans before, such as recently informing them that well, GH HAD been trying to negotiate her return (despite her ongoing denials).
I'm going to go out on the shakiest limb and say that unless a recast is announced in the very near future (like today), my guess is Amber is actually coming back. I'd love to see it and I do hope that she has plenty of clauses for outs to do movies, because that is definitely where she is best utilized, in my sweetest opinion. As fun as it will be, I agree with her daddy, Russ, that it's not a smart career move, seeing how GH is treating everyone else on the cast. While
So it would appear that unless yet another magical rabbit is to fly out of the ass of the Head Writers, Alexis aka Ghost of Kristina, killed Alcazar, in what may be the dumbest resolution to the most insidiously boring murder in the history of daytime TV...well, since Joseph Sorrel, anyway. So like other great minds, I have to wonder why if Alcazar saw Alexis in a goofy wig looking squirrelly-eyed, speaking with a lisp ala Thindy Brady, he would say, "What now?" rather than falling off the balcony laughing his ass off. In fact, his response would likely be a mess of net acronyms, "WTF? LMFAO," adding "FOB" (Falling Off the Balcony).
The next big story has been of Vanessa Marcil's departure. Rumors are flying about whether ABC (the fans) or VM is the victim here. Bottom line is that she had what she needed, it didn't fit with that ABC needed and they shook hands and parted.
On the down low, however, comes to me a story involving none other than Lisa Cerasoli, ex-V. Supposedly, the plan was to have V have a one-nighter with Jax that produced a little Jax. ABC even signed her into a 4-year contract to secure the story, but some male prima dona who shall remain nameless felt that she out acted him and petitioned for his removal. She was gone in nothing flat, contract or no. (Hey, listen, if the source is good, I'ma gonna tell ya!!!) You can catch Lisa in the latest Jack LaLanne infomercial as "Opinion of a person."
I'm on total "wait and see" mode. Bring on the storm!
"They keep coming and going and going and coming (and always too soon!)" I need a scorecard, people! Since we're on All Aidan, All the Time TV, he's the only one I recognize. Edmund (pass the cup) hurts my eyes and the only thing watchable for me is Lysistrata. Pfft.
It was, however, very telling for TAD to say, "You SLUT!" to Jake today. hee hee.
Folks, I gotta be honest with you. On Saturday, Katrina and I checked out the site usage for Eye on Soaps and (!yikes!) it is almost double what it was in December. We are SOOO excited that so many people are finding our site! We've found that one of the things that driving up bandwidth happens to be the pages that have lots of pictures (like Sage's Funny Pages). We don't want to discontinue these because we know so many of you enjoy them! This month, more than any other, I have to ask that If you have not donated to Eye on Soaps lately, please consider doing so. When you have po' webmasters, it comes to this. To read the donation options, please click here:
Honey, we wouldn't ask if we didn't have to, I promise you. We just want to be here next month and the month after that!!!!
GREAT SITE ALERT!!!!
I have two for you and I expect you to totally flood them. For one thing, our beloved Wub Queen, Karen, has taken up the reins and said Giddy UP! on the site formerly known as Gedsterns!! You can find Karen's site here. Sooooo glad she's back and Laura Gedstern, we MISS YOU!!
The other is another place close to my heart and that is (and it was bound to happen, darlings!):

Marcil to Leave
TV Guide will be announcing in its forthcoming issue that Vanessa Marcil is leaving GH again. Supposedly, she was asking for more money (actually more than Tony Geary, the highest paid actor on the show) and an abbreviated work schedule to spend more time with her 10-month-old son, Kassius. ABC declined. Marcil says, "I'm really disappointed to be leaving, but I guess ABC's not willing to compromise on the things I need. I have a lot more needs now that I have a child, and they need what they need to run a show smoothly. When I signed a short-term deal last summer, I made it clear I'd have to see how my son responded to my going back to work and he hasn't responded well."
There is no word yet on how she will be written out of the story this time. The date for her departure is given as February 19th.
ALSO, Amber Tamblyn mentioned on her board that she saw NuLucky in action and he's great.
She also says she's not heard of an Emily recasts, but I've talked to many different people close to and on the set who swear it's a done deal.
