Lisa LoCicero (Oliva, General Hospital)Olivia saves Johnny

I freaking LOVE Olivia – who else would shoot at Sonny to stop him?  Only Olivia.  She’s one tough lady.  As much as I wanted John to shut up so he wouldn’t go over that balcony, everything he said to Sonny was correct.

Recasts take time to swallow, especially when you love the actor or actress.  That being said, we need to reserve judgment on the Megan Ward replacement.  We all love Megan and are so disappointed that Kate is back and another actress is playing her.

And as much as I love the character of Kate, it’s kind of odd seeing someone else in the role, especially considering the upcoming story with Sonny.  But I did enjoy her interaction with Olivia (Lisa LoCicero).  And Olivia is correct – Sonny is heading for a fall and Connie/Kate is the only person who can get through to Sonny.  So huge props to Kate for swallowing her pride and considering reaching out to Sonny.

Honestly, Olivia and new Connie/Kate are pretty hilarious together.  

Yes, Carly is a HUGE problem, but Sonny has a lot of nerve threatening her.  Shawn really stepped up and who didn’t love that?  Sonny is just so out there.  He thinks nobody can stop him from getting what he wants.

Shawn fresh out of the shower – oh the possibilities.  If that were me, I think I would have fallen over.  Carly is crazy if she doesn’t make a move on that man.  It’s obvious Shawn likes her.  There are some great possibilities there, especially given that Sonny dislikes Shawn.  That alone should convince Carly to make her move.

Good for Lucky – he told Dante he’s been using.  Lucky is correct – an addict is ‘never recovered or safe.’  Very, very true.  Once they get a taste of it, there’s no going back.

As much as I dislike Johnny, I think he has ‘good guy’ potential.  He has a soft spot for Kristina and Michael.  And John would kill his father without hesitation if he went too far.
