Previews for the week of 13-Apr-2009
by Carol Banks Weber
Erica and Ryan have themselves a little adventure, harkening GH’s Luke and Laura, which harkens that old Clark Gable movie where he’s in one side of a shack and she’s in the other, separated by a towel. It all happens when the ride they use conks out somewhere headed towards Philly.
Erica and Ryan hole up in a cabin, where she proceeds to berate him for chasing after Kendall.
Erica means to stop Ryan from splitting Kendall up with Zach—by any means necessary.
Zach shows Kendall the exit from his cold heart. He’s had enough of her.
Kendall reels with the humiliation of sound rejection from Zach.
Kendall looks for her mom, Erica, and locates her cozying up with Ryan.
Kendall decrees that Erica’s hot for Ryan, and Zach.
Ryan is of the firm opinion that Kendall would rather stay married to Zach.
Kendall has a talk with Zach about Erica and Ryan’s odd interaction, before putting her signature to their divorce decree.
Kendall lets Ryan know it’s official, she and Zach are no longer married.
But Ryan doesn’t act like Kendall expects to this news.
Ryan prevents Kendall from leaving him.
Zach and Kendall are together as Ian’s medical exam goes on. But he makes it perfectly obvious to her that they are together only because they’re parents to Ian, and nothing more.
Kendall feels like a loser without Zach.
Zach takes a long walk, walking out on Kendall and into a one-night-stand with a beautiful stranger he amuses himself with at the casino. Let me guess: the new, younger Liza?
Ryan tries to make Kendall feel better, feel loved. Meanwhile, Zach is loving himself aplenty with this beautiful stranger.
Amanda exposes her soul to Jake, believing in him completely.
Jake proves himself to Amanda when David bares his fangs at her over the unborn baby. Jake produces a burner!
It’s clear to Tad that Jake’s totally taken with Amanda.
Scott and David get along well, until they learn that they are both in the business of patenting the first artificial heart valve.
Adam opens his coffers to Scott for his artificial heart valve business, now that David’s a rival.
Before Scott and JR hated each other. But now, that’s a different story.
David’s a bad boy, trying to persuade Zach to open up Ian for this new, untested heart valve—like the kid has to have it.
Krystal and David go about rehearsing what they’ll say and do for the custody hearing.
Krystal lets David know that the judge is likely to put a child – Little A – up on that stand.
Krystal looks around nervously before picking up a phone.
Adam rattles Krystal with what he has on her, so she better do as he pleases.
Erica observes a rattled Krystal, wondering what’s up.
David also observes Krystal not acting confidently at all.
Adam must be taken to the hospital immediately after he goes down in the middle of the custody hearing.
Erica acts like everything’s fine while she goes to the hospital with Adam. But it’s an act.
Adam reassures Erica that he’ll be alright, it’s no big deal.
Erica contemplates the power Adam wields over Krystal.
Krystal betrays David while testifying in the custody hearing, which Adam hears all about as he recovers in the hospital.
Erica fusses over Adam. But he pays her concerns no mind as he checks himself out.
David tries to pull out of Krystal what is the matter with her and why she seems to be Adam’s puppet.
David corners Adam, holding out a needle full of meds.
Scott happens by, catching every mean word David lobs at Adam.
Scott beats on David to defend his dad.
Annie thoughtlessly violates Ryan’s premises to be near Emma and nearly is captured on the spot…were it not for the fast-acting Aidan, who misrepresents himself and the facts on her behalf.
Krystal insists Adam shut up about a mystery she’s kept to herself.
Adam forwards to Krystal directions to a grave site.
Annie and Aidan are alerted to Ryan’s actions to prevent her from going near one another. Ryan’s gone and had her moved to another mental care facility.
Frankie enjoys a bittersweet send-off, surrounded by loved ones, none more loved than Randi.
Brot and Taylor work it so Randi can be with Frankie, through the advances of technology.
