Brad and Lucas meet HouseHunters: Our happy couple (strained a bit by Brad's bad choices) are looking all over Port Charles for something they can afford. All that comes up are expensive hipster lofts or run down townhouses by the railroad tracks and docks. Then, Felix is talking one day on the phone and Brad over hears him mentioning the old Brownstone that was "fixed up but never sold" because of some legal issues. It's up for auction and he laments to his partner (forgot his name) how great it would have been to own the property (which is also reported to be haunted!) but it's too expensive. Enter Brad and Lucas. They all buy into the Brownstone together and start renting out rooms as a way to pay the mortgage. Who moves in? Oh, anyone you want!! Maybe Kiki and Dillon-- TJ and Molly and then some GH doctor interns. Why? They could be around and test for roles on the show. We know good actors when we see them. Put in small storylines about not being able to get enough sleep, or having to grieve the loss of a patient. Think Night Shift only better.
Dr. Maddox Summer Sessions: Think outside of the box here. We could have had a series of small therapy sessions with many of the GH characters. The writing was great when he met with Jake, and hell, you know about 90% of the people in Port Charles needs it! The stories could vary and be surprising; Epiphany still grieving the loss of her son all these years later, Monica feeling that she's alone and aging out of her job. If you have seen HBO's In Treatment, then you know where I'm going!
Aunt Stella: Plastic Surgeon: That's right, Aunt Stella dropped by Port Charles but not only to complain about Curtis' choice of women but because she's also a top plastic surgeon. Julian is using the families millions to have her consult on his sister's burned body and face. We'd gain a great doctor who's attached to the canvas with family. Maybe later, she could branch out and have some "botched" clients!
Kelly's Diner--Time to Sell: Bobbie is ready to sell the place but can't find a buyer. Seems like Aunt Stella came into money recently and is a damn good cook. She managed a place in Baltimore for 25 years and is ready to have her own digs. We need an older woman, full of advice on GH (think Ruby, Mertyl...etc) to guide everyone and keep up with the town's gossip. Of course TJ would continue to work there part time. The upstairs rooms could be rented out again as well.
Joss Goes Goth: Ok, not exactly GOTH or EMO--but whatever the kids are doing now a days to get their angst out. I long wanted either Molly or Kristina to have an eating disorder storyline and this could apply to Joss as well. I'm not talking DISNEY-FIED "teen" I'm talking raw, deep-web stories. She could also have some grueling sessions with Dr. Maddox (see above).
Dr. Griffin: anything Please. ANY story will do. The way they've wasted this potential is embarrassing.
I could go on and on-. Point is, the summer is for exploring all things possible. Not rehashing months and months of recycled stories. I want to see the Quartermaine house become relevant again with Olivia and Ned. I want Lulu to stop crying about Charlotte and pay attention to Rocco who has some difficulties with his development. Get the characters interacting more and make the stories interesting.
