Listen to Angela: GH Preview for Week of August 20 - Depth Markers

Depth Markers

I Got A Name
Michael has a lot of stress in his life at the moment, what with keeping tabs on AJ and trying to corral him from trouble – while at the same time grappling with Morgan and the truth about Kiki.  After hearing of her younger son’s sleight of hand, Carly, remembering the disaster of her entanglement with yet another set of Quartermaine brothers, goes to Morgan and begs him to give it up, knowing it can only end in a mushroom cloud. Problem is, Morgan seems to be bound and determined to ride the rocket all the way to the bottom – even in the face of ultimate doom.  

AJ is careening, adrift after Tracy’s merciless, gleeful gloating assault on everything from his manhood, to his professional abilities, and his overall worth as a human being. Already tipping dangerously, AJ falls, giving in to his demons in a white-hot rage and telling anyone who will listen about his current woe and who’s to blame for it. It’s the kind of loose talk that, once said, cannot be unsaid, but would definitely be remembered. Especially if confided in the right—or wrong—person who happens to be on hand. 

Morning Bell

At long last, the donor match is found for Danny Boy, and now it’s up to Silas to perform the transplant procedure which could save the baby’s life.  Derek is overheard calling himself by his real name, but manages to wriggle out of being discovered just in time. Not so lucky with the timing thing is Ava, who barrels into Franco’s hospital room, presumably to stop Kiki from spilling the beans about her paternity. But of course all hope is lost for that, and now Ava has two more hurt, angry people demanding answers that she may not be willing to provide. 

Live to Tell

Not one to go halfway with anything, Maxie lives up to her name and goes to the wall when she commits to something. But sometimes going to the wall means hitting it head-on, and that’s the part that does the damage. 

Mariah Maximiliana Jones has complications, and not just with the little wonder she’s about to bring into the world. Her wall is emotional, physical, mental…spiritual, and is entirely self-constructed from her own good intentions…and bad decisions.  Things only go from bad to worse as she lies helpless with her secrets, and whatever control she has is slipping fast, as a colony of bats from a tolling belfry. If there’s one thing she should know by now, it’s that secrets have a way of flying out at the least convenient time. 

Anything She Does

Sonny and Olivia wait with Mac, Felicia, Luke, and Laura as Maxie fights and battles through one of the worst days of her life.  Already raw from the week she’s had and her weakening relationship with Sonny, Connie is hyper-alert to everyone around her and to everything they say – particularly when she shouldn’t be.  Unfortunately for her, she can’t seem to stop herself from stumbling across other people’s shadows, and this time what hides there finds her faced with heavy lead and a cold heart.

Angela, I love your use of song titles as headers for each section. A favorite song of mine "My Way", songwriters Fair/Ridel/Modesto/Sheth, Frank Sinatra's rendition, comes to mind for several of the characters this week. Morgan, "For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught"; AJ, "Regrets, I've had a few, But then again, too few to mention; Ava, "But through it all, when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out; Maxie, "I've loved, I've laughed and cried, I've had my fill, my share of losing"; Connie, "And now, the end is near, And so I face the final curtain". *_*.
