"Whatever Happened, Happened"

What a suiting title for yet another great episode of Lost. The title relates to 2 things: we learned that nothing can change the future, and that all along these people were back in the 70s. I think. Wait... oh forget it, my head hurts.

Second, we learn about what happened with Kate. Did anyone else find that this was the saddest episode since the death of Charlie? Anyway, she met Sawyers daughter, and the kid's mom who we already know she knew. Kate then had an epiphany that SHE needed Aaron, and that Aaron did not need her, he needed is Grandma and his GRandma needed him. Is this making sense?

Back on the island, little Ben is alive, but barely. So, what do they do? Kate brings him to the Others, with Sawyers help. But Sawyer is doing this for Juiliette. Excuse me? How could you talk like that to the woman you use to sleep with? It's not even like you had a viscious brake-up. Maybe he suspects somehting went on between Jack and Kate off the island. Which brings me to this question: Could Kate be pregnant???

Anyways, Richard Alpert brought Ben into the temple, but we didn't see anything inside. Perhaps we will next week we will, considering it's pretty much a Ben-centric episode. It's like back in the old days. I think we'll also get to see what happened to Sun and Hurley, as well as Ben (maybe even Desmond?) in the coming weeks, which will probably bring us to the season finale.

And the best scene from the night: Old Ben waking up, and finding a very much alive Locke welcoming him to "the land of the living". I just wish that he could have shot Ben at that moment. But the first thing I learned about TV- never kill off the people you hate, the show may get bland without them.

Top 3 Questions I want Answered:
1). What will Ben "be judged for"?
2). What is inside that temple?
3). Where the hell are Bernard, Rose, Vincent the dog, and all the other survivors, or are they dead?

General Hospital Weekly Roundup: Week of March 23

I'd like to start this column in a different way (that means no complaining about the bia-tch we all know as Robin). I will speak about the rumors swirling around casting cuts. It's RUMORED that Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Weber), Rick Heart (Ric Lansing), Greg Vaughn (Lucky Spencer), Megan Ward (Kate Howard), and Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine) maybe getting pink slips. WTF???

GH has done a fine job of screwing up. We get new, crappy charcters (Kate, Olivia, and especially Winifred, just to name a few) while they kill off important charcters like Alan and Emily, and get rid of Laura, Anna, and Bobbie. It's a sad day in daytime, and if they go through with this, I fear for the rest of the show. The inevitable question is if GH will remain in a few years?

Now on to happier things... wait a tick, there are none. We have Ric who's blackmailing Claudia. Wait, actually, Ric can get fired. I'm sick of him already. Does it even bother him that she's married to his brother. Probably not, just look at all the other women he's screwed that had previous relations with Sonny. Not only is that terribly disgusting, but I'm sure that's not the healthiest choice either.

Now Claudia wants to kill Ric, but she's hit a small roadblock: if he dies, a DVD will be sent to Sonny. What's a woman to do: I'm hearing pregnacy is her only option. Not to mention that Jax is currently liying to Carly about this. I hope all this ends when Micheal wakes up in a few weeks. Yay!

Speaking of amrriage, it's back to Robin. This week, I actually thought she was going to get help for her PPD. HA! I was wrong. I'd really like to replace this storyline with an HIV angled storyline. You know, a mom living with HIV would be much better then this crap we get. It would also teach people, too.

Biggest story of the week: Rebecca has something on her breast. OMG! I don't mean to be rude or offensive to anyone out there who has breast cancer- it's a terrible disease and I don't wish it upon anyone. But this may be a huge step forward in revealing that Rebecca is actually Emily! Let's hope she is! GH would finally get something right. (Along with Helena's Return!!)

Let's hope next week is better.
