|Grasping at Straws?|
My favorite thing Lucy said! "Serenity Now" ..I guess it's my love of Seinfeld that did it!! It also summed up my feelings after seeing the above had come up outta the dirt!
Well, we've had a lot of snow here and more is falling. Lake Effect, Electra, you name it. Of course, no snow days because we are expected to drive through 5 feet of the stuff around here!!
Speaking of snow, Port Charles hasn't had any yet and most ladies are running around in no sleeves. We did see some Christmas Cheer with trees and tinsel.
Get all warm and cozy..Fleece-lined scrubs!! Here we go!
Let's get right to it. HEATHER'S BURIAL. :shakes head: I ..I..well, I did call it. You could tell something was going to happen. Most people expected her to pop out of the laundry cart. But no, Ron left it until the end, after her lifeless body was dumped into the hole, wrapped in that sheet. Poor Todd, all that work and it still didn't happen! I totally had a "Carrie" moment--and also "Kill Bill" with Uma getting out of her coffin. Heahter is basically a zombie that shall never die. She lives on BLTs though, not human flesh!!
Her "murder" has led to Franco going to Kevin for help. Kevin was just like "huh, you killed, Heather--well, ok". I do like the idea of Franco being analyzed by someone. Plus, it gets JL on more.
Lucy and Scotty--old times, old times. I still have that picture of Scotty in my head walking around with his hair up and his robe 1/2 way done. Lucy's going to be guilt-ridden and spazzing out all over for awhile. What will Doc do when he finds out? When the hell is Christina or Serena finally coming? That's been on hold forever now!
AJ.. I almost forgot he got off for murder. Slipped my mind. That trial and pace of his story is just AWFUL. Now Liz is all about Nik, so who knows where AJ will end up. Probably the storage closet. Thank goodness Monica was on. Although BOO that they didn't show she and Leslie's lunch! Hey, you have them on set around the same time, TAPE SOMETHING!!
I did love Leslie at Wyndemere. Yes, she could have talked to Lulu but frankly, I liked her with Nikolas better. Then, she took Spencer to see Uncle Sonny and that was priceless! That little Spencer kid is so charming. Maurice is adorable around kids, that's for sure. I liked Olivia talking with Leslie too. Olivia just fits as Sonny's lady right now. She's not a clingy sobby mess, she's just his equal and someone that knows him. They fool around once and awhile. Cool.
The Jr.Mints came on after helping McSilas get a tree. Oh wow..bad acting in that scene. I'm sorry but--ugh. With all the talent out there-- and this is our second Taylor!! Maybe if they had more airtime (no please) or a decent, compelling story, we'd deal with them better. Instead, they are just pains in the ass. LOL. TJ talked about his mama for a hot second, Molly's been MIA and Rafe and Taylor are basically forgotten. So when TJ and Molly fight over who they "like more" it's pointless. The ONLY saving grace of that scene was Sam and Silas watching it and cracking up.
And on to the big story of the week: Spinelli leaving. Knowing that Bradford is really going and not just going to be "recurring" made it all the more bittersweet. He's been a revelation in so many ways, it will leave a big hole when he's gone. He's so "not soap" hunk but we LOVE him. Well, Fell in love with him over time. Quirky and cute--he just made GH tolerable and was the only comic relief for a number of years. When this new regime came on, Spinelli grew and matured and lost some of his rambling dorkiness. Bradford and Kirsten sold Spixie in so many ways.
Geesh, I'm going to be more sad than I thought that he's going!!
Lante leave me lacking in emotion. All I could think of was: "Why didn't Lulu give Spin those clothes"? I didn't even feel sorry for her. When Carly was talking to her, I was like WHATEVER. And, you know--isn't it hysterical where their embryos were kept? In some stupid little nook thing in the front of the lab? I mean-- it just seemed like--strange. I would think they would be in some cooler walk-in freezer with organs and other eggs and body parts or something. Or in a zygote bank. Not where Ellie and Brad kept their lunches.
There were a LOT of cute moments this week-- Spencer and the tree, Liz tossing her hair (I love her hair)!, Luke and Tracy eating crackers on the couch, the "free hats" they gave out at the tree festival. I like those little moments. They do take the edge off say, someone getting stabbed or digging their own grave. Oh!!...and Sam wore white and smiled! Miracles do happen!!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I don't have a cap of it, but it's Sonny boxing with Spencer. I loved that scene!! Leslie was all "I don't like violence" and Sonny explaining the finer points of the sport. Spencer was so cute and so was Mo!! Dimples everywhere!! I loved the mix of characters--Olivia was talking to Leslie-and they remembered Sonny had a nephew! So many people didn't even know it, twitter was going crazy asking how they were related. That's what happens when you have writers for years who totally rub-out history.
PROP OF THE WEEK: The laundry cart. Todd schlepped it all over the place. It's a wonder Heather didn't leave blood all over it, btw. I was also going to pick the shovel--that poor thing got a workout this week as well!
FACE OF THE WEEK: Lucy hiding from Kevin
That's about it! The end of the Year Wub Awards are coming soon. Today is the last day to vote for Wubber's Choice, prop of the year! I tell you what, it's tough to do year end retrospects. It takes forever and it always amazes me what I forget about! Of course, this year was also huge because of the 50th anniversary extravaganza.
Have a good one. Hope you are not trapped under mountains of the white stuff!
Again, thank you to Lisa W for her screen caps. She didn't load Fridays' so I am remiss at not having those. They do a a lot to the blog!!
