Hang on to your Remotes – Harmony is About to Explode
Passions May Sweeps Previews by James E. Reilly
As gowns are fitted and tuxes dry-cleaned, the tension mounts in Harmony.  This year’s Founders’ Day Dance promises more than fireworks - How ‘bout a nuclear explosion?
Luis’ plans to reveal the Cranes’ secrets and destroy Alistair and his empire are close to fruition.  Not only does he believe he’ll finally be able to persuade Sheridan to come back to him, if all goes well his family will get their jobs back and their home.    Nothing can go wrong - right?  Hmmm...  Alistair still has a trick or two up his sleeve...
Do you blame Sheridan for being confused?  Married to Antonio, plagued by memories of love for his brother, Luis, lectured at by her father, drugged and electro shocked by her psychiatrist - Is it any wonder she’s willing to leave Harmony and go back to St. Lisa’s?  Once she gets through the dance it’s off to the sunny islands... Or is it?  After the shocking finale of the dance Sheridan has a very different fate in store...  A little kidnapping starts off a stunning conclusion to Harmony’s hottest love triangle.
After nearly drowning in tuna fish to get her hands on tickets to the big dance, nothing will stop Kay Bennett from having the night of her dreams.  With a little help from Baby Endora, Miguel’s on her arm, the music is playing, she’s dressed in a truly magical gown...  And best of all, Charity’s dreams of making a big splash are going down the drain.  It’s the Dark Side version of Cinderella - But even in hell the clocks strike twelve...
In this cynical, high-speed age it’s sometimes difficult to slow down and remember those inspirational heart-to-heart talks we had with our parents - Unless you’re a Crane.  There’s not enough Scotch in the world to make you forget a little talk with Alistair, and poor Julian has a doozy coming up with his dear old Dad... 
It’s not all plots and machinations, however.   When Pilar’s disease gets to a critical stage the Lopez-Fitzgerald’s have to put aside their differences and come together - To say goodbye?  Love, faith and family - Those are what you hang on to in those depressing hospital corridors - That’s what you need to get you through the night.
A stunning new chapter in Harmony’s history begins as we travel to Mexico to meet some new characters - Heck, they’re not even in Harmony yet and already they’ve got secrets! 
And wait until you get a load of Theresa.  Pity the Founders’ Day Dance isn’t a costume ball...
