Obviously, if they bother to hire high profile guest stars, it's to give them a story and enough screentime (at least that's my guess).
Again, it would be interesting to have the opinion of someone who is regularly watching GA : what is usually the screetime and weight on the story of a guest star?

I agree! It seems that the episode focuses more on already existing characters and on their subplots, I worry too about Summers screentime. ATM it seems to me that she'll have significantly less importance in the episode than in Alphas for example. Would it really hurt them if they made a less main storyline episode so they can show more of the guest characters if they bothered to hire them?

Photo Preview for episode 8x16 "If Only You Were Lonely" should show up in the followind days, don't worry Alex
I must say i'm a lost with all those names and sub-plots in the description of Summer's episode; but i guess it's business as usual in soap-land.
Can someone confirms all thoses names belong to already existing characters as it sounds?
Also, having so many sub-plots makes me worry about Summer's screentime, all the more there is not one but two guest stars in this episode.
