Or as I like to say WolfMcBain! ahaha, get it?? Well, I mention that because of the fun Luke and McBain scene this week that referenced vampires and garlic. Ah, be still my funnybone. Between that and the Tracy, Luke and AZ scene GH was a giddy ride this week. Tracy in Alice's apron was priceless. And to have our LUKE BACK as a thinking, non-alcoholic happy guy again? Well, I could kiss the whole writing/production team.
Then there was FLEA... all blonde and looking at Mac--*sigh*. I am so excited. She and Jen Lilley look alike and I'm sure it will be powerful stuff. Given the fact that Guza completely gutted the Scorpios (both sides) it's so nice to have old faces come back through the door!
While I love "real life" stuff crossing the path of my soap this fell a bit flat. Cameron? You've been gone too long. The Avengers and Spinelli--good mix. But why did I think we were actually going to see new footage of the film? Did I fall asleep during that part? Hmmm.
Yes, the show was a bit uneven and the editing was wacky, but you can't deny the Johnny gloating to Sonny stuff wasn't a blast. Now let's give up the "bad guy rapist" argument and focus on the SOAPINESS of it all. I'm tired of the "good guy/bad woman" stuff because that was a totally over the top story. Who cares! Sonny got some damn medicine along with Carly---and BB's smile was worth 2x the price. "Happy Birthday Sonny"!!! When "Kate" found out she slept with Johnny it was sooooooooooo over the top it was hilarious. Johnny did totally take advantage of the situation but he's a gangster and well-- there you go. Can't wait for Carly to find ConKate's medical records. @@
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Mac and Anna in the courthouse hallway. Just a well written scene, and JJY and FH are two of the best actors on the soap.
RUNNER UP: Patrick lying to Liz about having to work at Mercy while sitting with his back to the front door. Picture of depression. Not even wanting his daughter around. Perfection all around.
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: Kate "waking up" after realizing she slept with Johnny. I don't know if the acting was supposed to be that over the top but it was just hysterical. No horror, just laughs.
I SO DON'T CARE: That Ewan is laying on the floor of his office. LOL..I was thinking, you know, if you just left him there, no one would even notice! DITTO to Steven LArrrrz in JAIL!! Hee hee.. I so hope they make him go pale from lack of spray tan.
WUBS POLL RESULTS: The question was...Sam and McBain? Well, the YES' won: 567 to Nay's at 486 (JaSam Fans)...the Liasons said yes for their couple to get back together (motivation for you!) with 406 votes and people that just wanted the crazy sex scene? 79.
With the rumor that McBam is related floating around, I have to scream NO at the top of my lungs. Kelly and Michael have way too much hotness for that. WAY too much.
Hope you have a great Sunday-- Scoops are coming in slowly -- it's the lockdown of the Cartini age. I'm not complaining mind you, I love surprises!! Rumors swirling again about the show's longevity, but I think that's to be expected. Hold on tight, who knows what's going to happen next!
