A "through and through" gunshot wound is where the bullet enters and exits the body....
Which is what I'm assuming happened to Jason--since he was shot in the back and fell on his stomach and is bleeding out all over the docks. Why he didn't invest in a bullet proof leather jacket eons ago is beyond me. You know what's coming next...Duke is going to roll that body into the river and...that dragon thing will wash up "Confirming" he's dead.
Jason..shot in the back by a guy that hasn't been on the show in eons. Ironic, no?
SCRUB UP!! We have some surgery to perform on last week's show... and there's A LOT to discuss.
Ok, JaSammers, was it everything you wanted? Did you get enough? People on twitter seemed to be pissed that they didn't make the whoop one last time..and that SBu's scenes were too short..yada yada.
Can't please all of the people all of the time. I thought the baby reunion (although rushed) was nice and the scenes really touching. Sonny and Jason vowing to be "happy"...Carly being happy for him, the works. They got out their wedding rings. The baby was adorable. His last word to Sam? "Always"...
This guy is so far from the Duke Lavery we knew that it's laughable...ergo I'm choosing to believe it's not him. Some face-shifting going on. You know I think it's really Faison. Get Fee-Wee-Sha in that room too. Watch his eyes light up like a pin-ball machine!! LOL. That nurse of his even has a Faison-like accent. I'm really trying to figure out RC's vision on his. If it IS Duke, then legions of fans that watched back then are scratching their heads and it's not a joyful "reunion". Even the newbies have to wonder what's going on and why Anna would fall for this guy. (He wasn't evil back then). If he's NOT Duke, well... ok. It would make some sense but again, he was on a LONG LONG time ago and a lot of viewers don't even know him so it may not even have an impact.
Poor Ron, falling victim to the fact that Guza never used history--and killed off so many vets that if you started watching the last 10 years you're lost.
Speaking of lost... This would have made way more sense if it was Diane or Max or Milo. I know no one wants to see them go, but BERNIE? Really...like we've seen him in the past few years. I think he had one scene with Sonny awhile ago. Quite a few people didn't even know who the hell he was. ERGO, the shock factor is lost. HOWEVER, kudos to Ron for attempting to use history.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Tea and Todd... him leaning down in the chair...looking so despondent...she was playing with his hair. I thought for sure she was going to pull it--hard and snap his neck back. (that's so Tea!). She didn't do it, and the resulting moment was just breathtaking. I've watched this at least 5x since. I LOVE this scene. I want to marry it.
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: TOO much sharing of the INFO with Dad, LULU... I do NOT want to see this. You don't discuss the 'swimmers' with your Dad either. I know he took her to the abortion but...uck. I am also dreading this whole thing but I'm afraid they are going to make Lulu "Pay" for that choice by not being able to carry a kid. WRONG WRONG WRONG.
MOST FUN HAD BY ALL: Dante's CUP scene with Epiphany. HEH... priceless.
We had a hole filled people!! We were all wondering why Joe was hell-bent on killing Krissy to get Sonny's money for Trey. NOW we know it's because of Bernie. The money was all in HER NAME. Ah, ok. Got it.
Joe Jr. is off the show, which is unfortunate. I liked he and Tracy. There could have been more going on. Without Dad Trey will be--well, more insufferable than he his now. I just think he's wimpy. The whole Starr/Michael/Krissy/Trey thing isn't working. They aren't Langston/Starr and the boys-- sorry it's just not cutting it.
COSTUME OF THE WEEK: Did I really even have to SAY it? LOL
So coming up...Jason's death rocks the town... we'll have November Sweeps and I believe Edward's memorial/will reading. Alan may or may not be back as himself (or a ghost)...AJ's comin'-- and I hear Robin will make an appearance at the Nurses' Ball in early December. I'm also thinking Robert HAS to come back at some point. He just has to. Rumor has it he may be back sooner rather than later. :fingerscrossed:
Take the new poll up on WUBS NET. Last poll was: Next big romance you'd like to see? Todd and Carly took it with 32% of the votes.
Thanks yet again to Lisa's Screen Caps for making the blog so fun each week!
