Listen to Angela: GH Preview for Week of October 28 - Sunrise on Mars

Sunrise on Mars

Away From the Sun

For nearly two long, solitary years, Robin has walked a circular path around the memories of her family. She is haunted by the remembered sound of morning laughter, the smell of her child’s hair when Emma rushes into her arms for a hug, and the warmth of her husband’s arms when she does the same with him. It is something she has dreamed of, yearned for, and seen in the framework of her mind for as long as she has been under shackle.  And it is just minutes within reach from her now.

Wyndemere is but a short boat ride to the lights of Port Charles, which she can see from the windows, and the temptation might be too great for her. Nikolas catches her in a weakened moment, and has to remind her of what’s at stake if she loses her focus and her sense.  The Devane/Scorpio duo is still crawling the wall of their daughter’s former prison, under the watchful and gleeful eye of Jerry Jacks. One false move, one wrong turn, and he will kill them.  

It’s enough to make anyone twitchy, but add to that the sandpaper solace of Liesl Obrecht and the familiar sound of Liz and her children trick-or-treating at the door, and it’s just too much. When Robin overhears Spencer invite everyone to the hospital Halloween party, the wheels of Robin’s mind begin to spin, and anyone who has seen a Scorpio begin to make a plan had better resign to the inevitable.


Lulu’s desperation is different. It’s bordered on the edges with the darkness of desolation and the cold hard sheen of purpose: Keep baby Connie at all costs.  She’s terrified; every knock at the door is the marshal, come to take the baby from her. Every phone call a summons to some legal matter. Every sound is an alarm and every thought is panic. As Spinelli and Lulu make preparations to welcome their daughter back home, Lulu’s Spencer instincts are kicking in.  Everything in her wants to take Connie and go on the run; just disappear somewhere – just like her mother and father did with Lucky. Of course, the Falconeris wouldn’t be running from a mob kingpin – they’d be running from the law.

Planet Earth

After the coffee massacre of 2013, Olivia sees that Sonny is perturbed, and asks about the vandalized beans down on the docks.  Reticent, Sonny tries to put her off despite her relentless, dogged questioning, but it’s like trying to stop the wind.  Olivia tries to dissuade Sonny from further violence and escalation, but that’s like trying to move a mountain. To Olivia’s mind, any outcome cannot be a good one, and she considers telling Dante what she has learned regarding Julian Jerome, Derek Wells, and how they are connected.

The man in question is pleased to get a visit from Alexis and his grandson, who is now fully recovering from his battle with Leukemia and is responding beautifully to the transplant.  However, Derek’s serenity cracks and spiders a bit when Alexis offhandedly informs him that Sam and Silas are in New York City together, running down a lead about Julian Jerome and his possible connection to Ava.  He visits his sister later – in what appears to be an inconvenient moment – and then receives word from Sonny for a meet.

He’s Mine

It’s not going to be a good week for Ava, from all indications.  The news that the object of her obsession is in New York with another woman is not likely to rest well with her, and as we have seen, she doesn’t deal well when things don’t go the way she wants. On top of that, she runs into the extremely angry mother of the object of her projection. Mayhem ensues, with shades of “Lace”, Krystle Carrington, and Alexis Colby.

After fixing her hair, Carly receives an invitation from a dogged, if resolute Franco – and she has a condition before accepting. Franco, for his part, is being watched by a lurking, shadowy person-thing who issues to him a stark warning. And as if her cup didn’t already runneth over, Carly opens her door to a Halloweening Derek Wells, to whom she is aloof and wary, thinking there might be more going on between he and Ava than he’s let on.

Also next week: Morgan brings something back to Sonny – but it’s not exactly the same as when it left. Silas and Sam meet Delia and confront her for answers.  Duke has a shocking run-in, and Robin walks a tightrope on Halloween.
