Mad as Hell!! *
That's it. HELL WEEK. Say it. Say it loud!! Cause you know it's true. One child dies, another gets a zip a minute transplant and we find out our fave "louse to love" ran the kid down. No wonder we all wanted to do giant jello shots after the shows.
What's next!? Where do we go from here? We'll get a bit of S&B with the new kid that Sonny will want a DNA test for (in case it's not Brenda's). Post-funeral Jake angst... possibly the Aidan reveal at some point. Michael going after Abby's beater, who winds up dead. Bad boy Johnny getting nastier by the minute.
Tyler will be gone soon, taking the last of the Cassadines with him. (Alexis is really "Cassadine light" so doesn't count 100% ) TG will have his vacation, come back, have another vacation. We'll all worry about who might be leaving next--or not. I'll bitch about the problems with editing and continuity. And of course, we'll still watch. That's what we do!!
Rumors are rampant: Is Jake really dead? Does Franco have him? Is Vanessa leaving again? Did Luke really kill Jake??
One rumor that I've seen around a lot is a newbie coming on for Dante-- which sounds a bit like a Brooke Lyn Redux. I'm so hoping this isn't true.
Will Maya be recast or just fade away? What about Terrell now that Scrubs is back together? Not much for him to do is there?
Will Olivia keep making casserole dishes for grieving people and Dante?
Why exactly is Shawn going to live in CarJax's gate house?
What about Abby? Is she legit or working for Franco --or AZ?
We know not to ask about Bobbie, Monica, Audrey, Leslie or Lady Jane anymore. Listening to Bobbie and then Monica being paged over the intercom during the whole Jake crisis was just so frustrating. Almost like a little stab in the arm. "We know you want them here, but Nah Nah nah nah Nah"...
Oh, on another subject, I think we can also say if Genie Francis doesn't come back during this Luke/Lucky stuff she never will.
The acting during this story has of course, been stellar. Not much more to say. The actors on GH always bring it. Emmy reels in the can right there. Taken in tiny doses, GH can be awesome. All together? It's maddening. Just on the idiotic non-use of any medical sense alone, we can agree that at the very least, they don't give a sheeze about being in any way, shape or form "real" on that front. We can only say "it's only a soap" so many times before crying "Foul"!!
SCENE of the WEEK: Luke realizes that he hit Jake when Lucky comes in with the evidence. Just the looks between them were worth their weight in emmy gold.
Biggest Let Down: Franco's big "Threat" to Carly. Uh, what was that?!
Take a gander at the upcoming Spoilers... read 'em and weep. Or not..maybe you'll fall asleep. Heh, who knows?
*For you youngins that don't know who'/what that is up there, it's from the movie Network. He throws a TV out the window and yells "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore"!!!
