    I'm going with common tone modulation

    If it's in e minor than 1st measure is V-vi, and 2nd measure is iii, then viio7+6  but that's still respelling the F# as Gb? but the F# and Eb resolve contrary outward so that might be why it's spelt so? If it is modulating to G major after then I think it would be sensible to say B is the common tone for the modulation.

    Music education major (in progress), now I'm sad! I have more work to do too!Sorry I'm not help.
