Your lying eyes - GH Two Scoops Commentary

Your lying eyes - GH Two Scoops Commentary | Daytime and primetime soap operas | Scoop.it
Lies, lies, everyone lies. Some do it for the greater good, but most do it for self-serving reasons. It's easy to lie but far harder to seek forgiveness -- when forgiveness is possible.
Soaprah's insight:

Can't help myself these days.  I want Nell to disappear without that baby and find a way for Kiki to catch a break.  Yeah, Life in Port Charles is depressing right now.  Hang in there Carly.
