What’s the one thing we all look for­ward to ev­ery Novem­ber? Okay, sure there’s Thanks­giv­ing. But that’s just one day. (Two, if you count the Black Fri­day sales.) We’re talk­ing about our an­nual GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL Novem­ber sweeps pre­view! We sat down with co-head­writ­ers Shelly Alt­man and Chris Van Et­ten to find out what fans should ex­pect over the next four

weeks. So what’s com­ing up? Wed­ding drama, fam­ily drama, re­la­tion­ship drama… oh, and even a reign of ter­ror! Want the juicy de­tails? Then read on!

Sonny’s Great­est Chal­lenge!

“With Mike’s dis­ease mov­ing in only one di­rec­tion, big de­ci­sions are go­ing to have to be made,” says Alt­man. “This is the big­gest chal­lenge he’s ever had to face. All the power he worked so hard to achieve doesn’t mean any­thing when it comes to his fa­ther’s sit­u­a­tion!”

Mean­while, Van Et­ten says that “events will un­fold that will change the way Sonny and Mar­gaux see one an­other,” while Carly will be deal­ing with a huge cri­sis of her own. “If Carly’s not care­ful, she just might lose her head!” The Corinthoses will have to pull to­gether if they want to come through

what un­folds this month!

Will Drew Come Be­tween Ja­son & Sam… Again?

“Time and again, fate is push­ing Ja­son and Sam back to­ward one an­other,” pre­views Alt­man. “And yet re­al­ity seems to get in the way and keep them apart! De­spite their grow­ing at­trac­tion, they are both sen­si­tive to the sit­u­a­tion that Sam’s for­mer hus­band and Ja­son’s twin brother, Drew, finds him­self in.”

That “sit­u­a­tion” in­volves the death sen­tence that Os­car has been handed, and it’s im­pact­ing ev­ery­one in the young man’s life. For Ju­lian, that means be­ing caught in the mid­dle be­tween his cur­rent and for­mer lovers! “He knows Alexis’ heart and mind,” says Van Et­ten. “He can­not come down on her the way Drew and Kim do. But by tak­ing Os­car’s case, she has cer­tainly put her­self in an ex­tremely awk­ward po­si­tion, and loy­al­ties will def­i­nitely be tested!”

Ryan’s On A Ram­page!

The Hal­loween death which rocks Port Charles is only the be­gin­ning. “Ryan’s agenda is sim­ply blood­lust,” says Alt­man. “The dan­ger is just be­gin­ning even as, in the guise of his brother, he re­mains a cit­i­zen above sus­pi­cion.”

How long can Ryan keep Laura from fig­ur­ing out the truth? “She is jug­gling a lot of balls, and that may help Ryan avoid de­tec­tion, at least for a while,” hints Van Et­ten. At the same time, Ryan’s new­found fas­ci­na­tion with bad girl Ava could have deadly con­se­quences as he con­tin­ues to stoke her need for re­venge against ex-lover Grif­fin and daugh­ter Kiki!

In Other News…

Valentin has been scor­ing big points with Nina of late. Un­for­tu­nately, he’s also keep­ing a se­cret that could tear them apart. “He’s his own worst en­emy!” sighs Van Et­ten. • “Franco and El­iz­a­beth will have a chal­leng­ing Novem­ber as we move to­ward their wed­ding,” says Alt­man. “Her fam­ily dy­nam­ics will bring big drama. But we prom­ise ro­mance for them, too!”

Where Ryan’s reign of ter­ror is con­cerned, “the dan­ger is just be­gin­ning!”

Long faces may be about to be­come the norm around the Corinthos home.

Funny, it doesn’t look like Drew’s com­ing be­tween them inthis pic­ture.

“My ver­sion of shock ther­apy is a bit dif­fer­ent,” Kevin told Ava. “I think you’ll like it!”

“You said you’d al­ways stand by me, Franco… notbe­hind me!”

If Ju­lian has to pick a side in the up­com­ing bat­tle… well, he should prob­a­bly just hope it doesn’t come to that.
