Nelle looks like a young Michelle Philipps from Mamas and The Papas…she will get preg by Micheal and say Sonny the Papa

Hi Jimh…You’re right, I knew Nelle reminded me of someone, and she does look like Michelle. The writers are setting Nelle up to be a schemer, but there is still a part of me that thinks she will eventually change course. But not after having done some damage. And I hope a pregnancy is is not part of it….real or not.

Jimh…Another thought…I’m lucky enough to be able to work at a bookstore. The store has many people come in of all ages and stages, and for some reason some will spontaneously confide to you things that are happening in their lives. But what I have noticed is that a bookstore can provide a “time out” from daily life for some customers. It provides a peaceful, safe environment; usually is adjacent to a coffee shop; has books of all categories to browse throw for free; no time limit like our soaps (Ha, Ha); and hopefully a restorative place for you to drop into once in a while. All the best.

I am looking forward to seeing how Allison’s day went because I know of her work as an actress—not sure I ever saw her in directing but now that I know this, I will be looking out for that episode. Would be great if Frank talked her into being in front of the camera too so we could see her in a new role. she rocked it as Sami on DAYS and I do miss that character.

Perhaps Alison can do a guest run as Nelle’s adoptive mama on a future stint? Nelle might end up being the real daughter of Oscar Jessup/Olivia Jerome and cousin of Kiki and Avery.

Still confused what Scotty and Lucy will do with the pills and if their storyline crosses with Laura and Doc Kevin or Bobbie at some point. It’s great having these veterans back and would like to see more Kristina Wagner and Tristan Rogers soon too.

Good for Ali Sweeney. Great opportuity to direct a well produced and professional show like #GH. Working for Frank Valentini has to be the best.
