Here's the Scoop! 06.18.09
If it’s murder… Who killed Brianna Hughes? Would they really bring Martha Byrne onboard and make her a murderer? Will there be suspicion thrown Alexis’s way? I liked Byrne’s introduction and especially liked her comment to Patrick about not knowing that she was the Mayor’s wife. My first thought was, hmmm, we all should know the Mayor’s wife especially if the Mayor and his wife are central the storyline.
Despite being a big brat lately… Kristina has tried to be the perfect child to impress her mother. What’s the straight A student going to do when she learns her mother ain’t perfect? Hey Kristina haven’t you ever heard of ‘do as I say, not as I do?’ Will Kristina’s disappointment in her mom send her in her nonexistent father’s direction? When Kristina first hit the canvas the story SEEMED to be going in the direction of ‘poor me, daddy pays me no attention.’ Now that it’s Alexis letting her daughter down, will Kristina expect daddy to pick up the slack? I have to say, if you’re going to give Sonny all these kids, he really should be more of a father to them. Who am I kidding… Nikolas hasn’t even seen his son in the last six months, Jason abandoned his in the name of safety; in comparison Sonny is father of the year. God help us.
Sam fans hoping for some Sam-Alexis interaction… You SHOULD get some. Kelly Monaco is just wrapping up her Vegas show and there is some TALK of her taking some vacation time but with the studio going dark that MAY not be the case. There were also RUMORS that Kelly MAY be sitting in as a co-host on The View when Elisabeth Hasselbeck takes maternity leave. I’m not a loyal follower of The View. Don’t they typically take a little summer break soon? But back to Sam and Alexis… their interaction MAY not be all warm and fuzzy at first. In fact, some RUMORS suggest that Alexis COULD be unleashing some repressed anger on her daughter.
What’s sending Alexis in a tizzy that has her going off on Sam and disappointing Kristina? The Mayor outs their affair. It’s an affair that happened off-screen and was hinted at way back when. I’m not sure how or why Mayor Floyd thinks publicly stating he had an affair with the DA will help his current situation unless he’s making good on a threat to the DA. Alexis has been working overtime trying to get Diane to drop the malpractice lawsuit. Is the Mayor thinking let’s draw attention to my affair with the DA and away from the dead girl?
Claudia’s hit gone wrong… Will Johnny have an opportunity to take Jason out? Will he take it or save him? SPOILERS all along have said that Johnny and Jason make it out ok and that Johnny comes to Jason’s aid. I’m looking forward to this to a certain degree. While I’m not against the mob, I’d really love a break from the usual suspects being front and center (yesterday was a great day for that) but I have always said I thought Johnny and Jason would make a good team.
How do we like the medical mystery so far? I’m not hating it but I’m not in love with yet either. Typically, GH finds a way to involve the usual suspects in storylines that they really have no business being in and that irks me. I get Sam’s involvement as she was hired by the Mayor’s wife and she is Alexis’s daughter. Jason really doesn’t need to be a factor as he has his hands full babysitting Sonny’s kids and shouldn’t he nail Claudia once and for all? My biggest gripe with it though is that it seems to be pulling away from Matt Hunter. I like Jason Cook and ever since he joined GH I’ve been waiting for a good storyline for him. This was supposed to be that storyline. It SEEMS that Scrubs is going to get more action and that Alexis’s part of the story MAY overshadow Matt’s. I’m not against Alexis getting some much deserved screen time, I was just hoping for more Matt. By the way… loved his drunken mess the other day.
The Q’s… How much airtime will they get thanks to Michael? Will Tracy be involved or will she be too consumed with her missing husband? What about Michael moving in? It LOOKS like with Morgan being involved in the mob violence, Carly decides Casa Corinthos is not the place for Michael to live. If he can’t live with her and Jax either, are the Q’s Carly’s only option?
Fight Club… Are Elizabeth and Rebecca the prize fighters in a girl fight?
The Spencers… With Luke “missing” will the brothers team up? Will Lucky investigate his new sibling with the intention of getting him to leave Port Charles behind?
Nikolas and NotEmily… Will he ever learn the truth about Rebecca and her conning ways? Who will be there for him? Is Jason going to buy what Rebecca is selling? Will someone take issue with his easy acceptance of the conman’s story?
What’s going on with Ric? He’s leaving PC soon and up to no good. What exactly does he have cooking with Andrea Floyd? Are his plans on track?
Spixie… So much for Maxie’s two week vacay. RUMOR has it Spinelli once again puts a halt to their love affair.
Steve Burton isn’t the only one with a contract coming up…. Jason Thompson, Kimberly McCullough and Kelly Monaco also have some negotiations coming their way if they’re not already happening.
