    That would be great!

    I enjoyed the first episode back, and was glad they focused on the characters/stories that are more enjoyable. I didn’t even mind seeing Carly, since all she was doing was gloating about Nelle. It’s cool that they got Dante back on right away.

    Yeah I think it’s pretty obvious Dante’s scenes were shot after the break and the others before and then just added in.  But it’s good to get that going because I really cannot take more of Olivia whining…

    Haha, I’m pretty sympathetic to Olivia’s whining, probably in no small part because Lulu is the target of a lot of it.

    Just watched the first two episodes – and I must say, I am enjoying the tone and flow of both shows…so so happy that Dominic Zamprogna is back! Enjoying Lindsay Hartley in her debut as temp-Sam.

    Happy to see Laura 2 days in a row; the dear in her eyes at the end of Monday’s episode was palpable. Monica’s fear today, equally so. Is the ‘hospital’ going to be front & centre the next couple months?

    Is there a nemesis Sonny has had we have been less invested in than Cyrus? Because it’s  pretty hard as written. He kinda reminds me of Mac’s dad on Its Always Sunny and I keep waiting for him to say “I don’t blink.”

    Hahaha, that comparison makes Cyrus feel so ridiculous. I’m still annoyed that Cyrus is just walking around in town threatening, blackmailing, intimidating, etc. I can understand if the show wanted to do more with him I guess, but at least make it seem plausible why Sonny and Jason aren’t taking him out like they said they would when they convinced Jordan to get him out of prison.

    But I’m glad the show is back. I’m loving Lindsay Hartley and the energy she’s bringing as Sam. And since we know the Lindsay’s scenes were filmed post-hiatus, I have to say things didn’t look jarring or weird at all. I’m sure other kinds of scenes will be harder to achieve, but so far nothing looks out of place. I don’t know what they’re planning going forward, but I was shocked to hear them mention The Nurses Ball.

    I know we’ve heard much about the measures B&B has taken to film during the pandemic, but has there been information released about what GH is doing? I’m very curious, because it looks like they’re doing most of the things we’d assumed they wouldn’t be able to do, and it doesn’t seem like editing or special effects.

    Also, I’m digging Chad Duell’s post-hiatus look with his hair longer and darker and the stubble. It makes Michael feel less like a polished golden boy in a way that I think is good for the character.

    EmmyLoser I think what you are seeing is a combo of scenes from before and scenes from after the shutdown. A lot of that likely has to do with how they used flashbacks in the months before they ran out to slow their roll. It’ll take a bit for it all to even out. We will probably really notice it when Ava’s portrait is unveiled.

    Oh yes, I’m sure there’s a mixture of material that’s airing right now. But any scene with Sam, for example, was definitely filmed after the shutdown, and based on how actors look visibly different than they did at the start of the week in some cases, you can tell other scenes were filmed later as well. But I guess you’re right, we’ll really see as time progresses what they’re able to do. The unveiling of the portrait will be interesting. I was shocked to hear them mention the Nurses Ball the other day. The scene was likely filmed before the shutdown, but I still would have thought they’d have edited that out.

    The August 5th episode was tastefully done.
    Fans were treated to a beautiful homage to history and wonderful past characters. The conversations between Mary Mae Ward and Lucky were always heartwarming. Elizabeth recounting these moments to Sonny were a wonderful detail and homage to GHs history.

    Bravo writers for channeling Mary Mae Ward through Liz to dispense beautiful advice to Sonny regarding Mike and the subject of grace realized. Mary Mae gave a speech about grace realized to Stone on his death bed.

    This Alzheimer’s story has been nothing but complex with poignantly layered scenes throughout. It’s been wonderful soap. Thank you writers to handling this story with detail and sensibility.

    EmmyLoser they’ve said they’re going to do a Nurses Ball but it’s going to be different obviously. So we shall see..

    I found this shocking when you said it the other day, Sean Phillips, but after watching Thursday’s and Friday’s episodes, I can kind of see it. They seem comfortable getting a good number of actors on screen together (either by actually have them there or through use of special effects), and while they’re not standing right next to each other, they don’t look oddly far apart either.

    It’s really interesting now seeing Sam come to the point of regretting going after Shiloh. She seemed so far from that at every previous turn of this journey that landed her ultimately on parole and unable to see Jason outside of a secret hospital room rendezvous.

    I’m floored that plans to do a Nurses Ball this year weren’t scrapped and GH is following through with what was presumably planned before the coronavirus shutdown. I don’t know how they’re ever going to pull it off while taking social distancing protocols into account (I’m guessing lots of editing and special effects lol) but of course, I’m left curious. Is this the first time in the show’s history the Nurses Ball will take place in the fall as opposed to during the traditional May sweeps?

    Thanks for providing the context of Mary Mae’s speech as it relates to Stone’s death, which I had not gotten to see at the time as my regular viewing of GH started much later. And I echo your praise of the writers. Once again, Anna Theresa Cascio (along with Elizabeth Korte and Lisa Seidman) crafted a just beautiful script.
