Ah... Latin so much more fitting for a funeral than English, yes? This week was Robin's week--despite the slow start it ended up being a wonderful testament to her life and watching someone grow up before our eyes.
In our ever changing world, it is nice to have a constant--doesn't happen much but for some reason the soap gods smiled and let us have our Robin, un-SORA'd and not recast.
GIGGLE OF THE WEEK: Oh --- gotta love them Handgun LTD mags!! LOL
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: Ok, yes, I'm harping on this but I just CAN'T DEAL with the "Change" of Kate/Connie. It was awkward and I laughed OUT LOUD (and I was alone) when she "flipped back" . Brandon Barash needs a damn medal for not losing it during this whole thing.
FUN SURPRISE OF THE WEEK: Oh drop that towel!! Isn't this a glorious screen shot of the moment of truth!? LOL. That's Cartini-- shirtless near naked hunks exposing themselves randomly. (If you didn't watch OLTL you missed 3 brothers that were 1/2 neekid all the time and they were spectacular!) Sam's face...schwing!
PS. Hit the link for all week in HD Screen shots!
I also really love the fact that McBain and Sonny have a history (even if it's off screen, it's totally believable)...and liked the whole Todd courtroom stuff. Starr and Michael are cute together and Michael isn't such a whiny ween around her. Carly and Blair, well...you know they are charming together. Now that the OLTL people are "established" I'm sure it will integrate into GH way more smoothly.
Heather Webber is coming. There is such a huge history behind this it's hard to get it down to a bite size piece. THIS is the Heather I remember and boy did she play crazy really, really well. My fave scene of her was when she was hiding in a closet, rocking a baby doll calling it "Steven Lars"...
From TV Megasite: (interview with Mary O'Brien)
Heather Grant, a troubled, desperate young woman who, after selling her out-of-wedlock baby, Steven Lars, on the black market, wound up marrying the baby's young father, Dr. Jeff Webber (Richard Dean Anderson). Telling her new husband the baby died at birth, Heather endured Jeff's discovering their son was alive and, after learning good friends Dr. Peter and Diana Taylor unwittingly adopted her young son, she set out to get the baby back at any and all cost.
Robin Mattson took the role over and the rest is history! There is a GREAT history on About.com regarding all things Heather. One of my problems with Mattson is that I remember her more from AMC as Janet-- I think I was watching that show more then? Not sure. Having Heather back should open a lot of doors. I hope she sees Tracy and AUDREY...OMG they so should get RA back on for that one. I still hope Richard Dean Anderson says yes to playing Dr. Jeff because he and Monica? Hoo-Ah.
