Colliding With Andromeda - GH Preview for Week of September 22

 Colliding With Andromeda

Second Hand News

Franco’s warning bells have probably been tinkling in the back of his head for a few days now, and even in his desire to believe in the woman he loves, he knows something is off.  Franco knows ‘off’. Being also a rather astutely observant man – it’s how he used to create such elaborate games for his victims, after all – he notices Kiki’s agitation and, exasperated, pleads with her to finally unburden herself and tell him what’s going on. Already at odds with herself and at her wits’ end with holding everything in, Kiki may not be able to refuse him. It promises to be one of Franco’s more memorable and eventful birthdays, as Carly makes a touching and affectionate toast at his party, prompting Franco to make one of his own. Kiki, hearing this exchange, resumes a new round of agitation and flummox.

Unsettled, she once again takes her concerns to a supportive Morgan, and expresses her trepidation about the entire situation with Franco. Later, during a romantic evening with Michael, she continues to struggle with feelings of guilt at keeping things from the man she loves and grapples for answers about what to do next.

San Jacinto

As Sam and Sonny are sharing warm memories of Jason on what is also his birthday, Robin is moving as fast as she can to extricate herself and her friend out of a dangerous situation, and is running out of options. Faced with impossible odds, she and Jason make a decision. 

Later, Robin has an opportunity to connect to her loved ones, just as Emma is sharing her unhappiness over her parents’ looming divorce. Patrick and Sam have discovered the PCPD is investigating Fluke, and realizing that maybe Spencer isn’t making stuff up after all, discuss their suspicions with Alexis.  Patrick also learns some shocking news that sends him reeling, and sets the stakes much higher than he can even comprehend.

The Painter’s Link 

Ava is given some unexpected assistance from an unlikely ally when Max and Shawn show up to collect her and invite her back to Casa Corinthos for an extended engagement.  This is enough for Ava to decide it’s time to discreetly and speedily remove herself from the environs of Port Charles.  She takes immediate action to flee, but her plan hits an unexpected speed bump, and she has to make some last-minute changes.  Desperate, she begs Morgan for help and a safe place to hide – while Morgan tries to talk her out of running away. 

Shawn unhappily reports some bad news to Sonny, and Julian later comes to call, demanding answers and wanting to know where his sister is.  Meanwhile, upon hearing news of these latest events, Sabrina reacts with stunned consternation and renewed resolve.

Also Next Week:

Elizabeth comforts a new John Doe patient who is brought in to GH. Fluke sends an emissary to find answers about Ava, and Tracy is distressed to admit she hasn’t heard from Luke – but she’s beginning to remember key details which stand out to her.  Julian and Olivia are each respectively demoralized to find out about Ned and Alexis’ date, and Nathan has a question for Maxie.

The Player With Another Face - GH Preview for week of September 8

The Player With Another Face

Alcmene, Jouis de Bonheur

For a guy who thinks there’s nothing left to tell and no reason to feel pinpricks of uneasy guilt, Patrick sure is indulging in a lot of stop-and start confessionals and blue-tint flashback lately. Jason’s dead, and why would it matter to Sam to know that now? Not like she has a right to know, or might want to bury the body, or check it out herself, or…well, anything like that.  It’s only lying if Jason is alive, right? Which he’s not, because Robin told him so, and Robin would have no reason to lie, right? None at all – except big beefy armed guards, sinister slithering Cassadines, and a bug-eyed, shaky misdirect from a woman he knows better than he knows himself? – might be a few clues.


But Spencer interrupts the latest almost-torrent of confession and drops the Fluke bomb on the disbelieving and shocked adults, who, with some prodding and help from Emma, finally unburdens the information he’s been harboring for the last six months. Even though the scenario before them seems outlandish, Sam and Patrick agree it needs checking. And when Sam prods him once again about what he was going to tell her, Patrick brushes it off – in light of this new information, what he was going to say isn’t all that important.

They regroup later to figure out the next move, and Danny pays a visit as they’re formulating a plan.  The little boy’s presence reminds Patrick of Gabriel, bringing the loss more acutely home of what might have been and can’t be anymore. Sam’s instinct is to be cautious and careful in this investigation, and she’s probably right.  After walking in on a potentially explosive moment between Nina and Rosalie, Silas has told his wife about Sam’s trip to the Crichton clinic—which raises Nina’s hackles and may have painted a brand new target on Sam’s back.

Damon and Pythias

Locked up together in an unfamiliar place, Lulu and Dante have some time to catch up and talk about things – their captors, her father, how weird things are lately. When they discover the identity of their captor and, horrifyingly, also realize his plans, it’s made very clear to them how badly they need to get out and alert the authorities.
Elsewhere in the building, Nathan has bonded with the guards through contact sport, had his DNA stolen and sent to a presumably more reliable laboratory than the one at GH, and had a candid conversation with companion-in-chains Maxie – about their feelings, about how weird things are, and about how they really need to get out of here and alert the authorities.  A new plan for escape may bring them both more shocks than they bargained for as they roam the halls of Crichton, trying to avoid the Minotaur and searching for cracks.


Meanwhile, the authorities are loaded for bear and ready to go – if only they knew where to go and what bear to hunt.  Anna butts heads with Obrecht, grappling with her nemesis as each tries to get what she wants from the other. But it is Britt who convinces Mutter to finally lay down arms long enough to help save the captives – among whom is Britt’s brother and Liesl’s imperiled son.  Anna is shocked at the revelations, and in utter disbelief when Obrecht reveals the true nature of Victor’s status in the scheme of things. Determined, she
ushers the assistance of her enemy in a rescue attempt – but Liesl may have other plans which don’t include anyone but a certain Armani-clad puppetmaster.

Also:   Jordan attempts to pry the boss’ identity out of Ava, but Ava’s sudden pregnancy alarm forestalls her. Sabrina is solicitous when they arrive at the hospital, but has her own agenda. Upon pressure from Nina, Rosalie attempts to drive a wedge between Kiki and Michael. Levi wants payback, and Victor wants answers.
