They mysterious Franco sets his plan in motion

James Franco (Franco, General Hospital)Ok, so James Franco is finally on the canvas. He's the "homeless guy" who witnessed the ambush on Sonny and Jason. He's the same guy who waved to the security camera. Franco seems obsessed with death, murder, blood, and other oddities. But, we still have no clue who this man is. Here's what we do know - Franco is an artist who somehow caught the attention of Kate Howard. He's an artist who supposedly is a recluse. An artist who had a gallery show in Port Charles of all places. All of those things make Franco mysterious and more than a little bit odd. And to top it off, Franco is a killer.

Luke's connection to Franco is nothing if not mysterious. They seemed familiar with each other. Here's my guess and do with it what you choose. I think Franco is somehow related to the late Frank Smith. Remember him? He was the mob boss Luke worked for back in the Campus Disco days. Didn't Frank Smith have a son? And was his name Frank? If so, the name, "Franco," makes perfect sense to me. So does the Port Charles connection and the obsession with crime.

But how is Dante/Dom involved? He's definitely got a connection to Franco. It seems he doesn't know what it is and either do we.

I hate it that Maxie cheated on Spinelli with Franco. Actually, I hate it that Maxie cheated on Spinelli, period. Poor Spinelli will be devastated when he finds out. I know Maxie loves Spinelli but he clearly isn't the man she's "in love" with. I think Maxie is a long way from being ready to settle down - with Spinelli or any man.

It seems that after all her train wreck relationships, someone finally decided to try and pair Alexis with Mac? What the heck took them so long? I love the idea of Mac and Alexis. He's a great dad and a good man. But I'm thinking that since Alexis is drawn to the "bad boys," the relationship hasn't got a prayer. Whatever happens between those two, I'm just happy to see more of John J. York.

Since it was a short week, I'll conclude by mentioning a few things I'm thankful for. I enjoyed the traditional Q Thanksgiving pizza and I loved hearing John Ingle sing. I'm happy Diane and Max got back together. I'm thankful that such a great character like Dante/Dom is on the canvas. I hope he sticks around for a long time. I'm so happy Elizabeth and Nikolas got together. Finally, I'm thankful for all the loyal readers of this column - I look forward to writing this for you each week.
