Being highly unsatisfied with Lucky’s reaction to witnessing his fiancee having sex with his brother the previous week, I’m hoping Friday’s cliffhanger produces a better – and more volatile – week coming up concerning the most hated triangle to come along in a long time.

That’s only my opinion about being the most hated triangle – Lucky/Liz/Nik – however, it’s one that many people also share judging from other blogs and internet chatter.

Let’s go back to last Monday’s General Hospital eppy, shall we?

After Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) witnesses Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) having sex the previous Friday, the only thing Lucky does is trash his house and doesn’t say a word to Liz or Nik about what he saw.

Instead, he convinces Nik – who was about to leave the country for good – to stay and that he needed him.

Are you kidding me?

For one thing – it’s extremely unrealistic to me that Lucky would react in that way.

Secondly, after we’ve all suffered through this never-ending, horrendous storyline and finally see the finish line……oh, no! The saga continues with everyone trying to figure out what the heck Lucky has in store for the two betrayers.

My fellow soap blogger, Paula’s Soapbox, explained her feelings about the situation last week quite eloquently.

Did I mention that Lucky – a recovering addict – proceeds to get drunk multiple times….although I must admit, I liked the scenes between Lucky and Luke (Tony Geary) bonding over a bottle.

Which brings me to last Friday – a true cliffhanger!

The last words we hear Lucky utter to Liz and Nik are: “You finally made me see reality. You don’t love me, Elizabeth, otherwise you wouldn’t be screwing my brother behind my back!”

You can see for yourself on the video below, which begins with some Lulu/Dante scenes (love those two!) segues into the back half of the aforementioned Lucky/Luke bonding scene and ends with Lucky confronting Liz and Nik.

Did ya see the look on Nik’s face? Priceless!

Sidetracking just a bit to my new fave GH couple, Dante/Lulu, here’s a really nice tribute video to them.

Soooo cute those two!

But will they be able to overcome all the ramifications of Dante, the cop, masquerading undercover as “mobster” Dominic.

Which brings me to the other s/l with a big reveal that everyone has been eagerly awaiting: the fact that Dominic (Dominic Zamprogna) is really Olivia and Sonny’s son, Dante, and that he’s a cop on the brink of taking Sonny down!

Michael overheard Dominic talking to Johnny on Friday about the irony of Sonny offering his business to Dominic while being a cop in disguise.

So you know Michael will go running to Sonny and…..well, that part remains to be seen.

Since this is a spoiler-free zone – I don’t like to know what’s going to happen ahead of time and don’t want to spoil it for our readers – I can only imagine the craziness that will ensure.

But, you see, Michael doesn’t know the kicker – that Dominic/Dante is his brother.

And Dante doesn’t know that part either.

Let the games begin!

It looks like we’re heading into the home stretch with that DREADFUL Liz/Lucky/Nikolas triangle on General Hospital.

And, I must say, it can’t finish soon enough for me!

Thank goodness Rebecca (Natalia Livingston) spotted Liz and Nik in the throes of passion Friday – which means that she will tell Lucky.

Amen to that!!!

I mean is anyone else sick of the unending scenes with Liz telling Lucky how much she loves him and wants to be a wife to him……and 5 minutes later she’s either making out or making love to Nikolas, who happens to be Lucky’s brother!

For one thing, I’ve had a love/hate feeling for Elizabeth over the past few years.

I always liked Liz….until she started hating on Sam a couple of years back.

I have to say that I totally agreed with Sam…that Elizabeth put herself out there as this paragon of virtue and she was so NOT if you check her track record for ONS.

It’s called being a hypocrite.

That’s why, a couple of weeks ago, I was heartened by that scene when Sam was coming out of Kelly’s Diner and Elizabeth apologized for being so mean to Sam a few years back.

I actually really liked Liz again – after the whole Jason debacle.

And now this!

Cheating on Lucky with his brother and lying to Lucky telling him that she wants to make a life with him!

I just can’t help feeling sorry for Lucky. I mean how many times does he have to get hurt?

But I must confess, I’m not really relating to the “original” Lucky, Jonathan Jackson. TPTB bumped fan favorite Greg Vaughan for Jackson a few weeks back.

But what I can’t understand is – why?

Many fans are not happy that Vaughan was let go – me among them.

I don’t have anything against Jackson. He’s a fine actor. But I just don’t look at him as Lucky.

For one thing, I think he looks too young for the part and doesn’t look like he’s a match with Rebecca Herbst.

Just my opinion.

I really, really like Herbst. She’s very talented and does a wonderful job with the character. But she needs some good writing for Elizabeth.

Hello, writing team!

But, getting back to the triangle….

The sooner it’s over the better.

General Hospital alert!
There will be some craziness at Nikolas Cassadine’s upcoming ball.
Wait! Craziness at a Cassadine function?
Go figure!
Tyler Christopher, who plays the handsome Prince Cassadine, told several hundred fans the latest news Sunday during an appearance at the Florida Lifestyles Expo held at the Treasure Coast Mall, Jensen Beach, FL.

Hailing from Ohio, he calls himself “just an average Midwesterner”….yeah, right!
Right now, his alter ego, Nikolas, is having severe anger issues, which is atypical of the low key prince.
Tyler told the crowd that it’s some kind of condition involving the brain, but it hasn’t been diagnosed yet and even he doesn’t know exactly what is plaguing Nikolas.
And brace yourself for some characters slated to be killed off.
“You’ll probably see some people being removed from the show,” he said. “Every once in awhile you have to do that, right?”
He swears he doesn’t know who it will be.
The audience shouted “they’ll come back” – as soap characters are notorious for coming back from the dead – but he said no.
“If you haven’t noticed, we have quite a few people on the show, right now,” he said. “We’re a little overcrowded.”
The killer will be on the loose at the upcoming ball at Windemere. Tyler said it will be “very elegant and very grand and the whole cast will be there and of course everything goes crazy in a matter of minutes.”
Another tidbit: the actors who play brothers Max (Dirk Cheetwood) and Milo (Drew Cheetwood) are not only brothers in real life but they are also Tyler’s cousins. He insists that he had nothing to do with getting them their roles.
Doing a soap love scene is far from sexy, he said. “It’s kind of like Twister, with somebody telling you where to put your arms and your legs.”
When asked if it’s boxers or briefs, he answered, “It’s the combination of both.”
