Building the Avalanche
Ghost of a Chance
Aside from Mrs.Bates, there is no more sublime of mothers than a certain dancing Obrecht, who has swooped in to check on the projects she’s had simmering in town for months. Her increasingly wavering offspring is ready to call the whole thing off and spill everything to Patrick, but Mutter is steadfast in her commitment to see things through to the endgame, and tells Brittster to just suck it up. This is difficult for Britt, seeing as Sabrina and Felix are coming at her from the other side and have even dragged Spinelli into the conspiracy.
Fresh off a successful surgery removing Franco’s tumor, Patrick is reflective over the impending arrival of the new baby and discusses the implications with Sabrina. Moving around the chessboard with a dexterity unbefitting a pawn, Sabrina runs into Dr. Olbrecht, but at the time doesn’t realize the significance of the encounter, and it might behoove her to leave a trail of breadcrumbs behind her. Just in case.
Riding the rolling wave of both her recent and distant histories, Alexis is firm when she tells Molly her relationship with Shawn is over. Her main concern, however, is finding a way of remembering the name of the father – who shall henceforth be called SamDaddy until we’re sure we actually know his name. At her wits’ end, she and Sam finally go to the one person who could help tie it down – Kevin Collins, who may have a way of helping her remember things Alexis has buried deep.
Sam, who has probably taken more body blows in the last week than Chris Kluwe in the 4th Quarter, braces herself for one more as Patrick fills her in on Franco’s surgery, prognosis, and viability as a marrow donor. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s still reconciling the monster in her mind with the reality in her sightlines. She and Carly have a long talk about Franco, the past, and what lies between the present and the future.
What lies beneath the present and the past is what drives Silas, who is determined to find the truth about Kiki. Not only are his and her futures affected – so is the entire gameboard. If Kiki is his daughter, Silas wants to know, even as he forges new ground with Rafe and strengthens ties with his nephew, who, upon hearing that Molly is thinking of reconciling with TJ, Rafe takes a deep breath and—
Running in the Family
Connie’s been trying to hold things together, but it ain’t easy for a newly-integrated DID girl with a mob boss boyfriend, and on top of that, her beloved Crimson turns out to be dancing on the edge of ruin, and she has an extremely short window to find a big story to save the Port Charles Press. Her boss, Derek Wells, is putting even more pressure on her already-overtaxed psyche. Unhappy with her performance, he fires her, but she cuts a deal that gives her a brief reprieve—if she delivers the goods.
Growing more desperate (didn’t think that was possible), Morgan’s nightmares drive him to confide in Sonny, of all people, about relationships and women. Sonny’s own issues of inferiority as a parent are shown in specific relief when he agrees to keep Morgan’s confidence about Kiki. The barrel begins to roll downhill when Connie senses the drama and pokes and prods for answers. Sonny dodges, but he’s trapped in a confined space with her, so…all he can do is canary and then beg her to keep her mouth shut. Something is so backward about that. Connie then finds herself in a quandary between knowing the truth and saving her job.
A View to a Kill
AJ’s surprise victory in the battle for ELQ has left Tracy in a fit of frustrated pique which, while delightful to watch, is also somewhat fraught with mayhem. As she casts around for a new alternative, AJ and Elizabeth take time for a romantic celebration alone.
