Where are Spinelli's "so called" friends?

Seriously where are Spinelli's "so called" friends?

Sure Jason made up a fake cupcake drug scheme to keep Jackal PI busy (that may eventually get him hurt or possibly even killed if Daddy Z's new plan goes right)...but what is Jason really doing to help Spinelli? Has he called his Granny? Has he called specialists? Has he dragged him to the hospital for tests? No, instead he is too busy proposing to Sam and cleaning up Sonny's house (isn't that what Max & Milo get paid to do?)

Sam. What is Sam doing for Spinelli? She has talked to Jason/Maxie about Spinelli and what is going on with him. But why isn't she on this fake turned real cupcake case with him? Spinelli was only at the hospital during the hostage because of her, and yet she isn't trying to get him help.

Maxie. Some would argue with me saying Maxie is helping Spinelli. She is, but she isn't. She keeps calling him Spinelli. At this moment he is not Spinelli. She needs to start calling him Jackal PI. Sure thats easier said then done. At least she finally started talking to him for the most part that he is not Spinelli. Has she called specialists? Has she demanded her committed relationship boyfriend to look at him? Has she asked her cousin Robin who is like the drug miracle worker to try to figure out what to give him? No. Yes, she is making sure he doesn't endanger himself and trying to make sure he doesn't piss off the wrong mob boss in town. And yes today she was trying to get him to go to the hospital. She has tried a few times. She is also going down memory lane to see if that triggers anything. Clearly, none of that is working. Time to move on to plan B.

Diane. Diane came to see him once in the hospital. Where is she now? She is probably too busy trying to steal his cases to write another book again.

Lulu. Lulu has been home from searching for Luke for a few days now. She has been out of the whore house even longer. She has yet to visit her friend who was shot and almost died for Maxie. Lulu is not a good friend. She is only there for Spinelli when it is convient for her, or well at least for the past few years at least.

Robin/Patrick. Robin and Patrick are his friends and yet they are too busy with their own relationship and her being chief of staff...But could they easily take 2 minutes out of their schedule to check on a man who took a bullet for Robin's cousin? Of course they could.

Other people in town who it would be nice if they showed some concern:

Carly. Carly was there when it suited her when Jason was in prison and they decided to bring down Dante. Then Spinelli lost a marble and decided to be nice to the guy. Carly wasn't done trying to get back at I am guessing this story was dropped as Carly then had to concentrate on this divorce and custody battle with Jax. But seriously she doesn't have two minutes? Who am I kidding, its Carly she only thinks about herself, then Jason...then her kids.

Alexis. They aren't exactly friends but Spinelli was there for Alexis in her time of need but where is she during his?

Molly. Why hasn't Molly tried to visit the boy she has a crush on?

Sonny. If Sonny was so concerned about his money he could be demanding Jason to find someoe to 'fix' Spinelli.

Brenda. Sure she left town, but seriously she has to have heard what happened to Spinelli. She could have at least called or wrote a note or something.

Uncle Mac. Yes he doesn't like him. But he did take a bullet for his 'daughter' and has he bothered to even thank him? No.

Steven. Sure they aren't friends but he was one of the ones in the room when he got shot. Has he checked on him? Nope.

Matt. Sure Matt has talked to Maxie, Patrick & Elizabeth about Spinelli but has he done research? Has he called specialists? He is the one who allowed Spinelli to check himself out of the hospital.

Coleman. Coleman has always been so supportive of Spinelli and yet where was he to check on him in the hospital?

So when this is all over, I can not have Spinelli going back and always being there for everyone in town. Why should he always be there for others when they aren't there for him? I am looking forward to seeing what dark twists this story may take. I am looking forward to seeing which friends step up, and which ones don't. I am also looking forward to finding out more about Spinelli. Will we finally learn more about his childhood? Why he is the way he is? Will they give him a disease? A disorder? Are they going to actually put a 'label' on Spinelli? What relationships will be stronger if/when Spinelli returns? What relationships will be destroyed? How will Spinelli be different? How will he be the same? Will he have the confidence Jackal PI does? Will he finally find himself worthy of love? Will he finally realize that he is perfect just the way he is and should never try to be someone he isn't and change? Will he leave the mob? So many questions. I can not wait to see this story unfold.

With Garin Wolf in control I know that the story will be written well, because we all know that no matter what the story would be acted out well.

8/4/11 Spinelli recap

Writer: Nathan Fissel

Jackal PI walks into the Metro Court restraunt. Matt tells Maxie that her friend may need some looking after right now.

Jackal PI is very obviously staking out the restraunt at the Metro Court. Maxie is there with her boyfriend whom she is in a very very committed relationship with but is not paying attention to him or listening to a word he is saying. She can not take her eyes off of Jackal PI.

She goes over to him. He is interupting another couple having lunch. Maxie tries to explain her friend is on medication. She tells Olivia to charge their meal to the Crimson account. She wants to know how much more she is planning on charging to the account, because there is only so much more before calling security.

Maxie is very distracted on her date. All she talks about is Spinelli...Hasn't she been doing that their entire relationship? Matt tells Maxie if she gets Jackal PI to General Hospital, he will make sure he gets seen by a doctor and gets proper diagnoises. She sees him take something off someones table and goes running. She chases after him.

Maxie finds Jackal PI in the ally. She calls him Spinelli (wish she would just call him Jackal PI already). She wants to know what he is doing. He says what he always does. He is playing the puzzle, making it through the maze. He found a wrapper with cheesecake on it. Its a cupcake. Maxie says he isn't making any sense. She says less sense then he usually does. He wants to compare this place ??? and it could be the break he needs. Maxie says its just a creampuff. He says it never is. Maxie says its just a creampuff. He smooshes it. She says it was a creampuff. He was gonna ring the doorbell, but then realized there wasn't one. He started thinking that there are no doorbells in the town (everyone knocks).... Jackal PI is laughing. He says there is something is very wrong. She says something is wrong. He says so you have noticed. She says she has noticed but its not in the same way he does. She is wiping the creampuff off his hand. She tells him he sees everything different, even her. She wishes she could see her the way he sees her. Or the way he used to. He says he sees her. She says sees him. She says but she also sees something else. She says its something she and he need to be honest about. He says what? She says they can't do things this way anymore. He says do what? She says she needs to take him somewhere, to take him to see something only he can see even if it hurts a little. She takes him and leads him away.

8/1/11 Spinelli Recap

Writer: Mary Sue Price

Maxie is sleeping on Jackal PI shoulder. She wants to know where they are. He does his Jackal PI speak, she corrects him and says its a storm drain. (She is up now). He wants her to stretch before she uses her legs because she kept trying to tangle them up with his the night before. SHe says the last time she woke up down there, she was with Spinelli. She says it was so sweet, and wonderful. She said except for when she got hit with hypothermia. He gets up and assures her that isnt going to happen this time. Something about being hot, and just then way he likes it and then but Maxie did scream for help, she wanted all 3 of them out of there.

And I enjoy Matt when he is not anywhere near Maxie (and not because of the whole Spinelli thing...I just don't see anything clicky or amazing between the two characters at all)

Say hello to yet another Emmy Jonathan Jackson. You and Chad Duell can celebrate and bring home the trophies together next year.

I hate these Chew commericals as much as I hated the buy Spinelli book ads. No one who actually watches daytime right now is going to watch the Chew (just as it made no sense to pimp a book for a character who lacked a storyline). Whatever!

Maxie is still screaming. He says looks like she painted herself into a corner. He says he can join her. She says no funny business. He says it was just a suggestion, her suggestion. She tells him the only reason she asked him to come down there with her is because she dropped Sam's engagement off Jason's balcony. And everything flushes down there eventually. He thinks thats a lot of thinking for her, and she should sit down and rest. Maxie wants to know why she can't help him remember anything. She brings up Georgie's killer. She says she can't believe Matt hasn't sent the entire police department out lookinf for het yet. Jackal PI says Matt isn't that in to her. That he is not that into her. He wants to know if she sees a pattern. She says yes meanness. He says truth. He says he wouldn't kick her out of bed though. She says that he loved her. That he worshipped her, he adored her. He doesn't see it. She says fine, she will just have to find another way to show him when they get out of there. He says it will be a week. She wants to know how he knows that. He says he read it in a journal that they only do one sweep a week. She hands him back the laptop and says if he can pull that useless information out of nowhere, he can remember how to use that...and before the battery dies. He says sure, as soon as she admits she wants him.

Maxie picks up the laptop. She wants to send out an emergancy sewer sos. Battery dies. She says she can't find her friend. She can't find Sam's ring, she is stuck in a sewer. He comes up behind her and says storm drain. She says no a sewer. It looks like a sewer, smells like a sewer and she is stuck down there with someone who thinks she is a blonde bimbo. He says something about her not stopping the ball rolling. She wants to know why he cares. Just as the bar gets lifted. Jackal PI says he doesn't care. He then says its just not right with her being like this. His hand goes palm out towards head. Thats a Spinelli movement. Not only is it in the voice, the hand movement but the eyes.

Maxie says the first thing she plans on doing when she gets out of there is taking a shower, maybe two showers. Maxie thinks he is in a rush to get them out of there now that she got them untrapped. He wants to know if she hears the noise. She does. She thinks she sees the ring. He says they have 30 seconds before the flush. She says it looks dirty and disgusting. He tells her to go then. He isn't one to leave a damsel in distress but he doesnt want to get waste if she knows what he means. He tells her to just grab it. She does. Then they rush off.

Maxie brings Jackal PI to the restraunt. He grabs a pitcher of water. She tells him to sit, no stand no sit. And to have a more human approach. She gets him a glass. SHe tells him to wait. He wants to know for what. She says her. He says he has to go see Morgan regarding the cupcakes. She says she is just going to tell Jason/Sam they found the ring. He doesn't see the big deal. She says thats the problem, he doesn't understand romatantic, respect, etc and its something Jackal PI knows nothing about. She tells him to sip his water and speak to no one. Jackal PI is playing with the sugar. Maxie goes into the office.

When Maxie goes back out into the restraunt, Jackal PI is gone. Maxie goes running out the door.

If you haven't already, check out Kiera's blog
Are you a fan of Brandon Barash? Do you know he not only supports MDA? Not only does he support MDA (he and Bradford performed on the Jerry Lewis telethon last year, and sounds like Port Chuck will be performing this year). Brandon is also the National Celebrity Ambassador for MDA.

Brandon Barash, aka Johnny Zacchara, is actively involved in raising funds for MDA. In an interview with MSNBC’s Giacinta Pace, Brandon explains why he is dedicated to supporting MDA. He states, “When I was a kid, my best friend was afflicted with a rare but very deadly form of MD called Duchenne. He passed away when I was 18, just before his 18th birthday. I made a promise then, to myself and to him, that as soon as I became successful in whatever line of work I chose later on in life, I would pick up fighting wherever he left off.”

Another way to help support Brandon & MDA is purchasing one of his photography books (I have seen some of his photographs...they are amazing) (I do believe this is last years book)
