Sit right back and you'll hear a tale....
A tale of a mean ol' man
His face is nasty his hands are wicked
But with his mask he's incredibly tan...
Ok, LOL...Well, welcome to Sunday Surgery! NO NEED for scrubs today because I'm delving into one of my fave villains of all time, Caesar FAISON! Yes, I will also dish the rest of the show as well, but this week was all about the latex and Cigarillos!
So, I'm going to get a few things out of the way first about this..
1. Anna would totally know she's kissing a mask
2. Anna would SMELL the cigarillos that Fiason is smoking, that sheeze doesn't come out of clothes easily
3. Never mind the teeth, eyes and fact that the mask ends at his chest.
4. He'd take 4 hours to get that thing on let alone the time to pin up his hair
Ok, now that we agree to just push those things aside...let us begin.
Ah, Faison. Yes, he's evil..yes, he's a baddie... yada yada but he's NO MITCH LAWRENCE. Meaning he's not a total psychotic nut job (just yet).
Faison has always had an underlying sadness to him. Sort of a "beast" thing going. He lusts after women, he hypnotizes them...chains them up but somehow I think deep down he's just a lonely man who was tortured by his German nanny as a kid.
Not that it excuses his behavior.
BUT..I want you to look closely at the scene where Robin is trying to convince him that Anna could love him as he IS. Anders Hove plays this brilliantly--watch his eyes. There's a wistful gazing there and a second where he almost believes it. I saw his hopes play out on his face: I could "save" Robin on my own and she'd love me. Really LOVE ME.
Of course, he goes back to his wicked ways but there it was. And Anders has always done this with Faison. Made him a little bit sad--a little bit 'off' with a venerability.
I can hear you now. HE SHOT JASON in the back!! Yep.. that's true. He's done a ton of baddie things. I'm talking about the little pit inside him that has a hope to be loved.
Now, On to the REST!
Tracy snowing AJ and Monica.. AHAHHA. Oh Tracy, you are so crafty and I love you. AJ just cut that off. Hee hee..think she'll get the house now?? Having the Q house filling up again is heaven. Too bad we are going to have John's (Edward) memorial next week. That had to be hard to film for everyone involved.
Sam and Michael kind of got lost in the shuffle but they were nice scenes. Michael holding Danny--generations coming full circle. Sam finally told him that Danny is Jason's baby.
Nurse Betty and her GIANT GLASSES. @@ I suppose her getting bombed at the night club was supposed to be funny but I found it weird. (not to mention the giant ass'd straw she had). Ditto the whole "But I have a crush on someone" when talking to Patrick. I guess I just see what's coming (and it involves contacts and a new make over) and I just get bored. She HAS to be connected to someone on canvas, I'm convinced.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: When I saw a piece of the mask still hanging on Faison's neck and he flicked it at Robin. CLASSIC awesome moment improved no doubt by Hove himself. It was an evil little gross thing to do. WUBBED it. (Look close on the left it's wobbling right there)
FAVE FUN MOMENT: Kid vomits on Britt. Oh be still my soapy heart. Loved it!!
BEST USE OF A PROP: "Duke's Face Sits on Robin's nightstand"
NOT THE SCENE OF THE WEEK: Brit and her RED BRA enticing Patrick in front of Mousy Betty. She's probably a hench-woman for Faison but still. :eyeroll: I'm so glad he said NO to her zexual advances. heh
Lante continued to have good dialog-- can't complain there. I liked both Olivia and Sonny offering them money for their baby-dreams. I'm kind of on the fence about Olivia's "powers"-she seems to be the OLTL Delphina of GH. Using Liz' history of art was a nice touch.
The AJ Scenes were good-- having some of them on the Q stairs was a brilliant touch because so MUCH HISTORY has happened on those stairs!!
Spinelli is growing up-- you can see it all over. I'm happy he slept with Ellie, about time he got something outside of Maxie. She's the one that usually has "relations" while he pines away. I do wish they'd solve it soon--or have Ellie go all nuts and start dressing/acting like Maxie.
The show is great again, and with the ELQ stuff that's coming I'm giddy. I also wonder if Shawn and TJ are back in storage?? Hmmmmmm. Not a lot of ConKate this week which is fine by me. ROBERT IS BACK in full SPY mode....eeeeeeeeee!!! Ned and Skye are coming next week. AND THE NURSES' BALL is being discussed!!
*sigh* be still my heart.
So...remember Wed is the big memorial day, Thursday is a repeat of John's last show-- and Friday is football. reminder: If you're ordering from Amazon you can use the portal up there in the corner or on wubs net. I'd appreciate it!!
