NEWS AND INFORMATION!  Scoops and Spoilers Below

GH Thursday 9/27/18 was pre-empted due to the supreme court hearings. It aired on Friday.

Soap fans, make sure you subscribe to Jacob Young's (ex-Lucky) new talk show, "Daytime After Dark" on YouTube! Review


GH will air encore episodes (meaning re-runs) August 29, 30 and 31st. ABC executive Nathan Varni assures GH fans that there is no reason to worry. Each year, a TV series has to produce X number of episodes, no more or less. Usually, GH is interrupted enough by news conferences that it doesn't have to worry about it. This year, it had 3 leftover days with no show, so that's why they're showing these 3 re-runs. It's technically the end of their TV season. The new season starts September 4 after Labor Day.

Ryan is planning to murder Lucy on the same night Laura shows up. When “Kevin” doesn’t sweep Laura into his arms, she doesn’t think it’s surprising because she was gone for a very long time. Ryan has to hide his inward panic when Laura plants a kiss on “Kevin”. While Ryan is trying to figure out his best move, he is saved by the proverbial bell: Lucy shows up with soup for a sick Kevin. Laura isn’t exactly thrilled by Lucy’s Florence Nightingale routine. Lucy assures Laura that she doesn’t have romantic designs on Kevin. Once both Laura and Lucy are in the house, Ryan abandons his impulse to murder Kevin’s wives, but not out of the kindness of his heart. Ryan uses his “illness” to fend of Laura’s amorous advances, spending her first night home on the couch.

Sonny leaves the PCPD and meets up with Jason, warning him that the DA’s vendetta against him just became personal. Margaux, meanwhile, discusses the ramifications of the body’s ID with Jordan.
