Listen to Angela: GH Preview for Week of June 16 - Cupid and Psyche

 Cupid and Psyche 

Phenomenal Woman

Understandably apprehensive about Silas’ news about Nina’s living arrangements, and with a PI’s mind towards assessing the situation, Sam takes the initiative and goes to introduce herself. She and Nina figuratively pace around the tulips with tentative care, furtively searching for emotional landmines to avoid – or perhaps to mark for later use. When Silas comes home, he has sort of a Michael Douglas moment; utterly blindsided to find his girlfriend and his wife chatting in the living room. The charged topic of conversation leads him to consider whether Sam is really past the ghosts of her previous marriage, and is faced with some decisions after a few very pointed questions from Nina.

Use Somebody

Emotionally drained, both Patrick and Sabrina say goodbye to Gabriel and contemplate how to move on from here. Sabrina accepts Juan’s offer to convalesce and recuperate in Puerto Rico after Patrick’s sincere encouragement. Both need time to adjust and absorb what has happened before they can go forward, and Patrick knows the best thing for Sabrina is to be with her family, while he figures out a way to accept his loss – and contemplate why Robin wasn’t there to support him in his grief.

Absorbed in her own thoughts as she departs from the funeral service, Maxie is aghast to stumble upon Nathan and Levi in the park, engaged in a decidedly physical and anything but impassive scuffle.  Levi loses his Zen completely after a few well-aimed barbs from his elliptically-inclined nemesis, and hilarity ensues as the diminutive object of their affections breaks it up and scolds them into submission. Later, Maxie is floored when she discovers who is summoned to her custody hearing, and the judge hands down a decision with regard to her visitation rights with little Georgie.

Across town, Franco is happily dragging his goods and chattels out from storage, gleefully rediscovering his boxed and taped past like a kid at Christmas. After recovering from the sheer and staggering volume of Franco’s storage bin, Carly is happy and excited about their future – but Josslyn, to their consternation and confusion – makes her displeasure known. Forcefully. 


It seems this week is the week where people move in with other people and their people aren’t happy about said people moving in. Sam’s not thrilled about Nina. Josslyn, Michael, and Morgan aren’t over the moon about Franco – and then Michael, Morgan, Kiki and Carly find out about Ava setting up a wet bar at Sonny’s, and all hell really breaks loose. Kiki is stunned – first attempting to pry the truth out of her mother and then reading Ava the riot act when all that comes are evasions. Morgan is hurt, Carly is livid, and Michael is just simply baffled.  But he has no problems offering Morgan an ear, a shoulder, and unwavering support as his adrift brother flails for emotional purchase. Eager to offer something new for Morgan to focus on, Michael unveils ELQ’s newest and very ambitious project – and is surprised by an unexpected visitor. 

Master of Puppets

After butting heads with Anna, Sonny keeps his gloves on and goes back in for Round Two with Julian Jerome in the Park – a piece of City real estate getting more action nowadays than Pier 52.  The two mob bosses feed squirrels and chat amiably about the state of business, all the while lacing their comments with an undercurrent of menace and tension. Julian is still being pressured by his overlord to keep up on product marketing, and in turn puts pressure on Jordan, who is feeling pressured by her overlord, Anna Devane.  Overwhelmed and sick at having to continue lying to TJ, Jordan appeals to Julian’s better nature, imploring him to name his boss.

Also Next Week:  Ava is shocked by news she never expected to hear, and Tracy develops a new scheme. After talking to Olivia, Lulu makes a decision and shares it with Dante. TJ and Molly commiserate over their mothers.

Listen to Angela: GH Preview for Week of June 9 - One Hundred Years Later

  One Hundred Years Later

The Lay of our Love

With Nina’s abrupt resurgence onto the living landscape, everyone in her time warped orbit is reeling from the shockwave, floundering for purchase and trying to figure out how to proceed.  Nathan is confused but happy to see his sister conscious and cognizant, almost instantly pledging his fealty  with no reservations and with the pure intent of a five-year-old, worshipful brother. Silas and Sam are both stunned, with Silas groping for some form of cognition in the haze.  Having held back telling Nina about his love for Sam, he struggles with the decision as to how to break the news and when. However, events make him realize he can’t delay the inevitable any longer – he has to make a choice and follow through. 

The situation is equally distressing for Sam, who wants to be gracious and patient – but she’s as human as anyone else, and would prefer a resolution sooner than later.  When she is asked to investigate the culprit responsible for Patrick and Sabrina’s accident, she agrees – glad to help her friends and perhaps to give herself something else to focus on at the moment.

High n’ Dry

Still squirming under Fluke’s thumb, Julian remains conflicted about staying in the business and wanting to smash his way out with whatever cudgel he can find available.  But he’s trapped by his overarching concern for his children, which makes him an unwilling and disgruntled minion. Dutifully, he gives Jordan new instructions on the next phase of operations, and Jordan, who has important decisions of her own to make, manages to suss out some key information during their meeting. Later in the course of the day, her travels find her in a dicey situation alongside none other than the Police Commissioner.

Not to Touch the Earth

  Ric, the cudgel of the moment, is cooling his heels in hoosegow as his friends and foes alike plot for and against him in a battle that might rival the Five Armies. Anna, fed up with constantly being stymied, informs him of new evidence in his case, and despite a fiery row with Duke, proceeds doggedly on her chosen course.   When shots are fired at the station, someone goes down – and as loved ones mourn the victim, Anna takes charge and quickly establishes her new endgame strategy that will – hopefully – topple the mob as a whole in Port Charles.

Also This Week:  Rafe has a memory of something horrific.  Morgan leans on Michael for support while Sonny and Ava continue to intimidate and taunt each other in their own private revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.  Levi and Maxie argue, and Britt’s jealousy over Elizabeth and Nik may tempt her to revert back to form.

The Lay of Our Love:  Tyr, Valkyrja
High n’ Dry: Def Leppard, Pyromania
Not to Touch the Earth:  The Doors, Waiting for the Sun

"I'm sorry. I didn't realize that was the last of the olive oil. Next time I'll use Crisco."

"So Frodo had to drop the ring precisely in the correct exhaust port on the Death Star, or Voldemort would win." 

"This is my souvenir from Puerto Rico?!"
