GH Scoops/Spoilers

By Mandy

SOD 8/1/16

Valentin Is Out For Blood! After seemingly doing away with Nikolas last week, Valentin remains on the warpath, meaning that the gaggle of Port Charles citizens trapped on Cassadine Island is still very much in peril. Though Valentin didn’t necessarily intend for Nikolas to die, he isn’t sweating it too much. But once they learn of Nikolas’s apparent death, Valentin’s captives, Laura in particular, have more on their minds than just getting out alive. Valentin, of course, is unmoved by Laura’s display of maternal grief. Expect a shooting and a major shocker (or two) for Lulu.

Ratings for 6/27: 2.0

Nick Stabile is out as Nikolas Cassadine, who appeared to take a fatal fall last week during a scuffle with Valentin.

*Hot Plots Preview* Sonny Finds Out About Parker! After her night with Parker, Kristina is on cloud nine. But her mood takes a turn when Sonny - who spies her sharing a good-bye smooch with her professor - confronts her. For months, Kristina has been worried about how Sonny will react to the possibility that she is gay and she is still scared to tell him, but she has to ‘fess up.

Chaos ensues when shots are fired on 7/25, while Naomi is shocked to overhear a familiar name. Parker writes Kristina a letter on 7/26, while Josslyn makes an emotional plea to Carly and Nina thwarts Julian’s plan. Sonny paints a grim picture of Julian’s future on 7/27, while Lulu has a realization about her whereabouts and Maxie concocts a plan to humiliate Claudette. Jason and Sam make a dangerous discovery on 7/28, while Nina congratulates Maxie on a job well done and Nathan gives Claudette a ride.

What Will Happen: Claudette’s scheme appears to be working like a charm. Liz has misgivings about a promise made to Franco. Amy makes a horrific discovery.

SOD 7/25/16

“Theo’s” Identity Revealed! The mysterious connection to the Cassadine family that “Theo” possesses - which was hinted at by the reveal that he has a tattoo bearing the family’s crest - is about to be revealed by the man himself, sending the Port Charles residents who have congregated on Cassadine Island (Nikolas, Ava, Sam, Jason, Lulu, Dante, Kevin and Laura) into a tailspin.

Ratings for 6/20: 2.0

Jesica Ahlberg appears this week as Darby Collette, Morgan’s former fling.

Rick Hearst appears this week as Ric Lansing!

Ashley Jones returns this week as Parker Forsyth!

Robin Riker returns as Naomi Dreyfus!

*Hot Plots Preview* Kristina And Parker Meet Again! Kristina throws Parker for a loop when she shows up at her hotel room while the professor is in Port Charles to give a lecture. Expect emotions to run high as the women catch up on what’s been going on in each other’s lives.

Lucas comes down hard on Julian on 7/18, while Hayden tries to guilt Naomi into submission. Alexis receives startling news on 7/19, while Julian takes a turn for the worse and Nina asks Curtis to drop his investigation into Claudette. Michael and Sabrina grow closer on 7/20, while Alexis hears an unexpected declaration of love. Finn reluctantly agrees to Sonny’s terms on 7/21, while Carly is vigilant in her quest to find Josslyn’s kidney donor and Elizabeth declines Franco’s gift.

What Will Happen: Ava tries to form an alliance. Lulu makes a horrifying discovery. Sonny’s timing couldn’t be worse.

SOD 7/18/16

Anna Gets Her Man! Anna has been on a mission to bring Julian to justice for ordering Duke’s death for over a year now. This week, she finally gets to see her nemesis in handcuffs. With Alexis donning a wire and successfully extracting key confessions from Julian (to tasking Carlos with Duke’s murder, then offing Carlos), Anna is hopeful that his comeuppance is within arm’s reach. Anna is relieved and cautious. That’s in large part because a menacing Julian absconds with his wife, who fears for her life. Fortunately, Alexis is rescued before sustaining any physical harm - but Julian is injured in the process and is rushed to GH. It is there that Anna drinks in the sight of Julian in shackles. Expect an epic confrontation between Julian and Anna in his hospital room. After the showdown, Anna decides to leave for an extended visit with Emma and Robin in Berkeley, confident that Julian won’t be able to wiggle out of the charges - even though there is a tiny bit of concern that something will go terribly wrong. Especially given Julian’s penchant for craftiness. Anna’s exit from Port Charles is timed for portrayer, Finola Hughes’, summer vacation, but she will be back in time for Julian’s trial!

Ratings for 6/13: 2.0

Lynn Herring appears on 7/21 as Lucy Coe!

Matt Riedy is out as Dr. Matthew Mayes, the latest casualty of the hospital killing spree.

*Hot Plots Preview* Hayden And Tracy Team Up!

Tracy quickly agrees to partner with Hayden to get the medication for Finn, the doctor who recently saved her life. Together, they deliver the ostensibly good news to Finn, but he doesn’t want them to get involved.

Ava discovers personal property that once belonged to Helena on 7/11, while Carly enlists Nina’s help and Sabrina opens up to Michael. Laura makes a tender confession to Kevin on 7/12, while Lulu makes a decision. Sonny is grateful that Alexis is safe and sound on 7/13, while Liz asks Franco to quit interfering and Nina shows loyalty to Maxie. Curtis and Maxie are on a similar mission on 7/14, while Franco confronts Liz and Carly and Sonny present Aaron and Kristina with a business opportunity.

What Will Happen: Kevin catches everyone off-guard. Theo gets the upper hand. Curtis gives Maxie advice.

Finals Hughes (Anna) is featured in the Take Five interview this week.
