Anna begins to explain what really happened to Faison.

Spencer talks Emma into skipping school in order to give one last attempt at winning her over.

Luke (who has been held captive and drugged in Moncavage) breaks free of the strait jacket and tries to figure out who is living his life attempts to break free.

Are we really supposed to believe that Anna and Robert thought they could lock Faison in a hole for a year and he would survive and NOT try to escape??? Is Britt's guilt going to get to her and is she finally going to come clean with her crimes? Once Julian confesses all to Alexis will she want to run to the cops?

Lucas urges his father to come clean with Alexis.

The justice department officer arrives with papers for Anna and she declares that Faison is not dead.

Coming: Is Faison behind the Luke masquerade?

Is it just me but why can't bad guys (or girls as in the case of Heather Webber) ever really stay dead on General Hospital??? I mean, enough already? Heather came back yet again. The Cassadines keep coming back. Now we are supposed to believe that Faison along with Jerry (another one who just won't stay dead) is the money behind the Jeromes and has been masquerading as Luke??? Coming soon is the return of Johnny Zaccara. If you will remember, Johnny went to prison for his role in the deaths of the characters on loan from One Life to Live who after the whole lawsuit with Prospect Park who owned the rights to the characters had GH erase them as if they never existed. The actors who played Todd Manning, Starr Manning and John McBain got new characters in the form of Franco, Kiki and Silus. Did Johnny kill his grandfather Anthony? I think so. This was during the whole Connie debacle when she was suffering from DID. Anyway...my beef is with the lack of originality on the part of the writers. We cannot create new bad guys, we just keep on resurrecting the old ones. November sweeps is just about over and we still do not have the answers or an ending to the Jason story and the Fluke story. Hopefully before the holidays we will get some closure.

Coming:

Thoughts and commentary: Only on a soap opera would there be unisex jail cells. Does it seem like just about everyone has been getting arrested lately? WHY does no one recognize Jason or wonder why certain people feel a connection to him? Why doesn't Jason himself ask if he is Jason? Geez. What is it going to take?
If there is a crack-down on cleaning up the mess at the WSB left from Victor Cassadine, won't Dr. Obrecht finally get what is coming to her?
Will Julian tell Alexis the truth about who is behind his operation?

Questions to ponder but it is November sweeps so hopefully we will be getting answers to these and more!
