If you are from my area, you know what the "R-wing" refers to; the psyche ward. Knowing headwriter RON is from here, I think he'll appreciate the tie in. (or not who knows! LOL)
This week was again, up and down and all around. I am still feeling like whole pieces are just chopped out here and there. Characters show up at weird times and the flow I like just isn't going to be happening. There were some stellar moments however, especially between vets so...let's get ready to cut into this baby and dish!
When I write these, I try not to look back at my blogs or screen caps at first to see what stands out in my mind. This week it was the weird catacomb rescue, Franco's bare chest, Slap fight at Windemere and Spencer's big mouth!
You never know what's going to stick with you!! Let's go story by story and review:
|RIP Karl the Catacomb Contractor|
Franco finds Carly- gets stabbed then shot--or maybe just shot. Don't know. Anyway, the big moment there was his declaration of WUB for Carly. Roger was so good in his scenes, especially freaking out on Heather with his "love for Jason" speech. They should never have made him Franco though. Why he couldn't have been a Jerome is beyond me.
|Took a whole damn month for this to be over.|
The strange scene was when Anna and Newbie CopperBoy were all of a sudden there, guns drawn. It was like I walked out of the room and missed something. Never mind the fact that we have NO clue where she is right now. You know she's not locked up!
The Morgan/Michael scenes at the hospital were made bearable because Bobbie and Lucas were there too. Of course, having Bobbie bop in and out really makes things seem choppy but I'm not going to complain. I love how Sonny didn't even get word (or care) until the next day.
THE DNA STUFF: Liz was as giddy as I've ever seen her! I'm fine with her in this part; she was a total bad-girl (with a heart) when she first came on. Her lying to Brad and manipulating the whole situation was great. Although it was very contrived to have her go to Britt before Dante, that turned into a fun full out fight scene! Hee hee. Britt brought out Liz' dirty laundry!! Of course, Liz has the fact that Britt stole genetic material, so I think that trumps her in the "badass" category.
THE GAY STUFF: Alexis' talk with Julian was a highlight -- we found out his Dad called him a 'sissy' when he wanted to act in the school play (aww) and he ended up changing his mind pretty quickly. Alexis had some good dialog though and it was played really well. Brad "broke up' with Lucas and is going to try to make it work with Felix. Who thinks there's a big triangle coming?
THE ROBIN STUFF: ah..I get it!! ROBIN sees DANNY and thinks of Jason not having seen his son! Then she feels like she has to save him. I so wish Sam would have been walking him though. The juxtaposition of Sam's grief and baby Danny? Would have been good. But, no...Sam's in bed, eating pizza with Silas.
LANTE REUNION: Well, they had another talk about babies..no babies, losing a baby..BABY BAAABY BAABY. Having Lulu dream about Ben being theirs was so over the top though. I mean, come on. And shouldn't Olivia see an Italian Horn necklace around Ben's neck? Anyway, I did like the talk with Nikolas about Britt-- that was a good scene. Lulu's not going to be thrilled she's "not" Ben's mama. I wonder when THAT will come out! May? This year? Next? LOL
SPENCER FACTOR: Such a little mouth! I love him so much! I think he's sorta like Jack on OLTL a bit..but with money to throw around!! He's a great little actor. I also love Tyler's face when he has to deal with his obvious mouthy outbursts. heh.
CONNIE COMES BACK: But WHY? WHY? Ava tries to convince AJ he really did kill Connie..and AJ goes to the cemetery to ask Connie. She 'raises from the dead' (and obviously KS taped) --and said...absolutely NOTHING. NOTHING! What the hell was that about? Um, still don't care.
AVA SLINKS ON IN: With a snake ring no less!! She steals her dear brother's files and hands them over to Sonny. I guess Morgan is THAT good? I know..she 'loves' him. But Sonny's right, what long term thing can they have?
THE COO-COO'S NEST: Kin and Tony, locked up in a padded room! I swear, I wish they would have had just a "real time" HOUR with the 2 of them! Scotty makes Luke wear the wig while he tries to get him out of the jacket and takes a selfie ahahhaa. I'm thinking it's going to be a week before anyone finds them? I think Lulu finally wonders where Dad is..and Lucy is the one that thinks about Scotty. *Lucy, who obviously had this week off.
Anyway, Luke dressed as Lasha from back in the day when SHE was in a rocking chair. Hee hee.
SONNY MOVES OFFICE: Leading to my melt-down this week over the absence of BADGER BOB. He wasn't back at the restaurant office either. That's empty. WAH
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Julian and Alexis talk about acceptance of Lucas. Very well done, and NLG as always, was just awesome. It also is great for their relationship; now being built a bit slowly and with emotional connections.
PROP of the WEEK: I'm giving it to the Candy Conversation Heart. It was after all, Valentine's Day. Molly and TJ are thisclose to "making the love" too.
RUNNER UP: Sonny's Necklace to Olivia. I put it up there because I think it's supposed to be a branch of a tree, signifying her loyalty and their family? Anyway, thought you'd like to see it up close. Hey, at least it wasn't a dress!
FACE OF THE WEEK: YEP..Liz gets it again!!! BOO-YA to Britt!! And that hair tho!
So, all in all, a lot did happen this week..although it didn't really feel like it. I'm thinking the entire Heather story happened to further "redeem" Franco (hey, he was literally resurrected on the ER table). The mob story between Sonny and Julian just rings false; they seem like guys that would get together to make more money than try to kill each other off. Is Tracy still running around with that net? The AJ thing is comical by now. Why NOT have him see Zombie Connie? And although Robin was on at the beginning of the week, they'd better start to really REALLY focus on her to make any sense out of what's coming. I feel like KM's time was so wasted--from the time she was on in the "lab" for a month until now, when we see her so sparingly. We're going to get a "should they go all the way" teen story. Ric will be back though, so we can look forward to that. And of course "DONNA MILLS" is coming. Sorry, still makes me giggle. By the way, was that the only part poor Shirley Jones got? Huh. Okay then. Wish she was like an old friend of Audrey's!
What's your fave part of GH? I'd say the DNA stuff--and Lante baby but I am SO afraid that Dante/Lulu will have huge angst over Ben being "his" and not "hers" and that reveal will take another age and a half.
