Now, let's think...about whom can I be referring?? Hmmmm. LOL... Tea has always been a screamer and she belted out a MIGHTY one Friday!! Heather probably had her ear drums break during her downward spiral!!
Ok, scrub up...put on your ear protectors and we'll DISH!!!
Well, this week was interesting..the whole baby thing finally coming to a head and a jumper on the hospital roof!! What more could we want??! It was also a swing week-- meaning no DID or other stories, just a rollin' amount story tie-up. NO Junior MINTS!! Or if they were on, I blocked it out! LOL. Lante had some cute scenes and I liked Lulu putting her legs in the air to try to get PG (women really do that, btw!!). I am liking Luke --he's not just some drunk at the Haunted Star being a sour puss. Tracy and his talk was wonderful!
I'm also NOT feeling Maxie's pain. We've seen this pattern before--a LOT. She likes Spinelli when he's not interested. So, when she went to Lulu declaring her "love" for him, I was like ..eh. Whatever. I don't see that spark anymore and I hope they keep EllieSpinelli because they are cute.
*sigh*..I had high hopes and I'm not sure why this return is just "blah". Feels like Duke could be ANY villian... Flat affect... weird scenes with a foreign speaking minion.. eyebrows that are sinister. (They are DISTRACTING ME. BIG TIME.) The whole 'Robin' mystery also has lost it's luster. Just not written right, imo. I'm rooting for Luke. Duke's probably Franco with a new face. LOL. Or Faison. Or Helena. I can only hope I'm surprised by this whole thing.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I choose the scene of the week the same each time: that what sticks out in my head as the most as a stellar acting/writing moment. I'm sure people will object, but for me this week, even with all the histrionics over the Duke-Reveal and Baby, my favorite moment was when Anna was in the hall with John. She had just found out about Duke, Luke was fighting with him over her and she went for a breather. John came up to talk about the kidnapping and you could see the subtle shift in her face. Pain, disbelief..and then sliding into the commissioner role. It wasn't a "snap"-- because the lingering effects were still there. Just a brilliant thing to watch.
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: Well, other than when he got knocked in the head and was unconscious, this guy was just..DUH as usual.
Was ANYONE surprised when Joe Jr. Walked out into Duke's place? Uh, no... I didn't even blink.
How did you feel about the baby reveal? I was happy for Sam --but that too was a bit lack-luster. Not sure why. Maybe because I'm so sick of DNA/Baby/switch/kidnapping it doesn't even make a dent anymore. I've probably seen about 10 stories about it in some form over the years. Even the rooftop suspense wasn't that much. -- Good cliff hanger, I mean to actually have Heather jump but given the fact there's a SID out with JaSam and baby on the cover, we can figure out that the kid doesn't go splat. There's also the underlying knowledge that Burton is leaving which casts a certain weirdness on everything.
Here is my wish: No announcement would have happened about that--Steve wouldn't have told a soul other than the producers. Then his exit may have been shocking. They could have even made up false stuff about "Jason" in the future to throw us off. (And we all know unless we see his battered corpse, he may come back.) *sigh*
I'm looking forward to Edward's memorial...made all the more real by the passing of John Ingle. It will be emotional for all. I'm hearing they are looking at people like Robin Christopher to come on for a cameo. Can we hope that Wally Kurth can get a loan-out? Rena Sofer? (can you imagine!!??) The reading of the will, all of that could be fascinating.
RATINGS were great in the key demos: *see them all on SON !! That's number one baby!
