I've been thinking. (yes--again!!)
@jjpounder and I discussed this on twitter ..
Can anyone tell me WHY they let Theo go--when he didn't give them an antidote for Brenda's neurotoxin? Patrick still didn't know what it was at GH. They could have demanded the syringe from him first. (to analyze it)or just shot him and gotten out of there.
Theo couldn't see Sonny could he?? He was standing in the other entrance to the cave..why didn't Sonny just run with her in his arms?
Why am I wasting my time thinking about all this!!?? I guess because I can't enjoy a story that was written SO badly. Since day one, The whole "Balkan" story has been full of holes and stupidity. I still want Guza to explain the whole "Siobhan" thing. He never needed her for anything. That shows such a lack of planning, and a total disregard to my sensibility as a viewer. Like, "who cares! They don't pay attention anyway"!! "Throw whatever at them!! We don't care"!!
A long soap arc is like a novel...you want all the little things to click together at the end. It's apparent that Suzanne wasn't Theo's wife from day one....she became that later when Guza decided it. Which, it was a good plot point, but it wasn't written that way!!
I'm not totally picky..I can take the empty coffee cups, the fake sets...the "Location shoots" (I might make fun of them but I can take it) ---I lived with the Cassadine Weather Machine. This is shoddy writing on so many levels. Why not write it like a mini-movie? You couldn't throw this stuff together for a mini-series why throw it together for us?
I can also deal with Johnny turning nasty, planting the bomb and helping Lisa. I get the sister thing. Problem is they've never really shown that side enough. For months, he was on maybe once a month.. All of a sudden he's a strip club owner and explosive expert. They should have had him visiting dear ol' Dad in prison, being made into a bitter mob-son.
Here's the Balkan Baby:
That's my bitch for the day!!! :) Tomorrow is Sunday Surgery when I tackle "Tunnel Vision". You'll see what I think about GH's approach to "disposable characters"--all of them women.
