Lord knows Iíve got nuthin on this show.  So letís follow the bouncing ball.  Richard Fields is, we presume, the father of Trey, but also the father of Kendall, having been the cad who raped young Erica and attempted to rape young Bianca.  Since Iím looking at Vanessa and thinking that sheís not that far off in age from Erica, despite what Erica might want us to believe, (OK, so Marj is 10 years older than Susan, anyway), might we expect a story in which Fields also raped young Vanessa, a fledgling actress who crossed his path?  So this makes Kendall and Trey half-siblings, just as David and Leo are half-siblings, making Trey, Leo and David all halfies and Trey and Kendall halfies, but Kendall, Leo and David are unrelated.  Got it? 

I was going to jump on the ďWar of the RosesĒ bandwagon, but A CERTAIN CYNIC beat me to the literary draw on this one, so I shall defer to her seniority both on the site and in sniping this reference out from under me.  It just goes to show that brilliant minds really do think alike.  Suffice it to say, Adam and Liza should be a good watch. 

Spoilers say that Liza gets the goods on Mia.  Does Mia have goods?  Liza already knows that Mia trashed out the money, so what else could there be?  I thought Mia was basically goodless. 

*ahem*  Iíd like to see a little more of Frank and Simone, please.  

Baby?  Maybe?  What the complete hell is Anna going to do now?  Itís been about a quarter of a century since she (the character, Iím well aware of Finola Hughesí procreative abilities and history) cranked out a baby and a mere seconds after doing the happy pregnant dance, she finds out that David isnít on the level.  Will they do the Hayward thing and hiss and claw at each other for a while, then call it foreplay?  Scuttlebutt says FH is set to move to GH in February and the rumors were very strong from reliable sources.  I keep hearing how happy FH is on AMC and working with VI, so I have to wonder if things have changed.  As much as Iíd love to see Anna (hey, and David!) show up in Port Charles, I canít imagine what theyíd have her do.  Strike up a relationship with Mac?  God knows Bobbie, Luke and Felicia canít have any airtime and those are the only people left who knew her.  Iíd love to have her back, but only if they are going to use her (Rather than abuse her ala Rick.  Will we find out that Anna was really a serial puppy stabber?). 

AGGHHHH!!!!  I am once again suffering from Post Traumatic Dress Disorder...this time because of the pain and anguish caused by me having to see that teeee-ragic ensemble that Maggie was sporting at the engagement party.  Choke*puke*wretch. 

Isnít that Palmer just cute as the dickens?  I do, however, want to pop little Peteyís head off like an errant tobacco worm. 

OK, Iím bored...moving along:


Was I the only one who was starting to think that Viki/Niki might really be dead in that trunk?  It seemed like she was in there for days and days.  In all honesty, the whole basement scene is really starting to bore me and it feels like they use the same script every day. 

August 30th, mark yer calendars, B&B fans.  That will be the last day youíll see Ben and Viki on screen for quite a while.  Mark Derwin is heading out here to do Life With Bonnie and Erika Slezak will be going on her summer vacation.  Viki will be back with some perfectly logical reason why Ben isnít with her.  Gary Tomlin, EP for the show, tells us that Niki is gone but we STILL donít know what the damned secret was!  From what heís hinting about, some QUALIFIED mental health person is going to help Viki find out eventually.  I canít believe we waited all this time NOT to find out.  *pout*  Anyway, on the 30th, thereís supposed to be a big shot montage of Ben and Viki moments for our viewing pleasure.  Tomlin does say that   

Good for Jessica for having the class to apologize to Natalie for being such a PMS harpy to her this month.  She might just ease back into my good graces before she leaves the show. 

WHAT??  Asa gets married?  This Friday??  To Rae??  THAT was in her list of demands?  Rumor, darling, but DAMN!!  With Rae so down on her luck, it would be a wise blackmail move! 

Blessed relief.  Word is that Todd, Tea and Ross will be finished with the island crap about the middle of September, it will be final air dates for all concerned and it wonít be a happy ending.  Who cares?  Just put this beast out of my misery.  Also, I hear that ABC is negotiating for a brief Roger Howarth return around December. 

And yes, our Alison will be carted away once and for it, it seems.  August 27th will be her last day and sheíll go out with a bang!  As Bo, Ben and Antonio descend upon Vikiís cabin, a shot is fired and a major character is hit.  Iím hearing itís Lindsay (which is why she doesnít go away with Allison).  Surely itís not already Jessica!  Anyway, thereís no word of anyone leaving the show, so I donít imagine itís fatal.  The weird thing is that Mollie (and as I read this, I have to confess that it took me a good 3-4 minutes to remember just exactly who the hell Mollie is) gets into the middles of all of this and is also taken hostage by Allison.  Iím not exactly sure why I just canít seem to attach onto either Mollie or Chad (although he does appear to be a good kisser!).   I feel nothing but apathy toward either of them. 

There is also a lot of action with Jen continuing this whole bait game sheís playing with Cris and Natalie.  Good God, I wish that girl would go back to where ever she came from.  She can crawl back up into Lindsayís uterus and suck her thumb for the rest of eternity for all I care, but sheís making me want to pluck out my eyes and throw them in the pearl onion bucket of the nearest salad bar.   Darling, has there just NEVER been such an annoying character on the planet?  To borrow and idea from Katrina, maybe I could pick her up and beat Al to death with her and convince the doofuses (doofi?) at the LPD that it was a pedestrian accident!  I sincerely hope Al does win his woman and takes her far, far from Llanview.  And another thing, didnít that guy Michael Tipps at least look as though he might have crept out of the loins of Gabrielle and Max?  This guy gives us the distinct impression that Gabrielle was fooling around with Puddy from Seinfeld.


Katrina learned this week that open taping of GH has ceased for the time being and tapings are now only being viewed by staff members.  What the hell are these guys up to?  The set has been on lock down as far as info for a while now and getting good scoop is like squeezing orange juice from a rock.  

So what do I have?  Not much. 

People are all in a panic because there is a spoiler that says that Jason ďwill be drawnĒ to Courtney.  Think about it, folks.  I told you a while back that since the public (well, a good piece of them) want Jason and Liz together, itís going to be draggggged out until November sweeps.  Is Jason going to sleep with Courtney.  Pfft.  No.  I canít imagine that he will.  Jason is going to feel protective of Courtney and thatís about it.  Itís all part of the process to keep us waiting until they are good and ready to give us what they want.  November sweeps.  Bank on it.  A lot will happen in the meantime (including a strong and reliable rumor that Jason is going to move Liz into the penthouse to keep her safe just after Labor Day) to kindle the fire even more.  If you canít bear it, donít watch, but the train is still rolling in the same direction.  Itís just working at half steam and stopping to pick up and left off passengers along the way.  Did I tell you that Sonny and Carly were going to get back together and remarry.  Yes I did.  Did you guys believe me?  No.  About half of you gave up and bailed on me.  Am I telling you Jason and Liz are going to be together.  Yes I am.  Believe it.  Donít believe it.  Itís nothing on me.  Iím just telling you whatís going to happen.  November. 

Likewise on the naysayers who are out there fussing about Brenda and Jax.  Yes.  Brenda and Jax are going to reheat.  Thatís all there is to it.  No.  Brenda and Sonny are not going to be together.  The powers that be like Sonny right where he is with Carly.  That ainít going to change, even though Carly might get a little uncomfortable and catty when Brenda shows up.  

Skye, however, is going to be in the market for a new man.  Since I got about a hundred letters from people who didnít understand what I said the last time, Iím going to say it more simply and specifically. 

Skye and Jax are going to hit the skids.  He is going to find out about the deal with Edward and be unrelenting.  He just told her that he does not tolerate betrayal and will exact dire revenge on those who seek to subdue him.  She had a couple of chances to come clean with him and tell him the truth and she didnít.  Jax ainít gonna play dat.  When he finds out what she has done, there will be no mercy.  But I did say a triangle and a triangle it will be.  Skye, of course, will be working double time to get him back and might come close to succeeding, right about the time that he finds out that Brenda needs his help.  He hops on the white horse, runs to her rescue, tramples Skye a bit in the process, they try to continue on, but the connect to Brenda is too strong and they canít make it.  Skye then hooks up with someone else and because Head Writers Guza and Pratt love Robin Christopher, she is going to get a kick ass story.  So Ingo is going to get a great, romantic story.  Skye is going to get a wonderful story, but itís just not going to be together. 

Yes, despite the coming hardships, fires, etc, I do believe AJ and Courtney will stay together. 

The current return/no return status of GH alumni, as far as I know: 

Tracy Q/Jane Elliott Ė Likely on both counts, sheís eager, Guza wants her.

Emily/Amber Ė Guza says he wants her, rumor is that her dad doesnít think itís good for her career, her official word is she hasnít been contacted.

Stefan/Stephen Ė Guza wants him back...badly...he isnít likely to return under the current regime.

Robin/Kim McC Ė She claims she hasnít been asked and has not intention of returning at this time.

Lucky/Jonathan Jackson Ė Nah.  This is purely an internet rumor based on Jacob Young leaving the show in the fall.

Anna/Finola Ė Maybe...rumors are strong, but sheís also very happy on AMC.

Robert/Tristan R Ė Says he has not been contacted...also is busy working as a director.

Duke/Ian Buchanan Ė Nope.  Bold and Beautiful has him nailed down tight.

Helena/Constance Towers Ė Not for a while, but will return eventually.   

Jerry Jacks/Julian Stone - Heavily rumored for a year now, reality unknown.

There is also rumor that there was a miscommunication about Flea being killed off and when people heard Kristina was going to die, they thought it meant Kristina Wagner.  Um, I think the info was actually pretty specific to Felicia, so Iím not convinced on that one yet and still think she might go.  

Jacob Young is a pretty definite departure in the fall.  

Genie Francis is already gone, but will be shown from time to time in footage already taped.  Laura is truly going to go nuts and not have a dignified exit from what I hear.  Such a shame.  There will be a Luke and Laura wedding, but weíre talkin tiny. 

Tony Geary will return for the trial, but it is unknown for how long and rumored that he will take the fall for the murder himself to protect Lucky and Laura.  

A Martinez is leaving this fall as well, although the means of Royís exit is not yet known. 

I donít know any more about Zanderís amnesia than Iíve previously written.  Donít know how long it lasts.  Donít know what happens afterward.  Iíve heard he gets hold of a gun while in that state and Iíve heard Sonny gets shot, but with all of the people who have it out for Sonny, I doubt itís Zander who does the deed.  Shot...not killed. 

Along the Not Dead route, Edward also is going to hang around.  Skye is arrested for attempted murder. 

The peanut is secure for now, although still, not final decision has been made. 

Vanessa Marcil is currently taping and will air in her true form just after Labor Day.  I head that Brenda is convinced she has her motherís illness, but Jax learns from her physician (the one who sent the results he burned after her ďdeathĒ) that she DOESNíT actually have it and only thinks she does because of Alcazarís drugs. 

NuGeorgie shows up on Sept 3; NuLucas on Sept 6th.  Robyn Richards is also back soon.  No word on why the kidsí first scenes were cut from the wedding. 

The custody battle for Michael is going to heat up again and there will be a lot of energy invested into the outcome. 

And that, folks, is all Iíve got to say about that.  Everything I know so far, Iíve included in this column.  As I know more, Iíll print more.
