I know, I know... Broken Record... over and over and over...
This week isn't much different.
**NOTE: ratings are UP for GH--which is great...happy for the show. REALLY happy. Not too happy for me because it means the overall direction I'd like to see isn't that popular. Oh well.
So, get out your leftovers from Saturday night (hope you had a good dinner!) and sit back with some Rum Punch. I decided that's my go-to today.
This week was....unremarkable. We thought we might find out who Fluke really is...but it turns out that Julian doesn't really know. We thought that maybe Franco would catch Sonny...but he crawled out the window (note how they didn't show that footage lol). We thought that Sam might find something on Rafe's phone but...the numbers are blocked. We thought we'd maybe see a continuation of the MaxiLu kidnapping...but it stalled.
|Geesh, I think I forgot to open Kelly's for 2 weeks!|
I don't know folks. I just...don't know. Shawn and Jordan realize it's been 14 days since the boogied at the art gallery, and spend 2 more days in bed. If only Jordan would tell Shawn her mission and he could either help or tell us he's been working as undercover to get Sonny all this time, it may be interesting.
Anna. What. IS WITH THIS!!?? I guess Duke is just gone? When she found out that Jordan 'heard Luke' why didn't we see her digging more? Talking with people to find out if he's been acting weird?
|Maybe if I just stare into the rain long enough..I'll FIND THEM!|
The kidnapping. Could anything BE more drawn out than that wedding and "search" (standing on the docks) or them trekking to the cabin? I took it that Lulu/Maxie et all were presumed dead in the boat sinking, at least that's what Dante would think, right? So we go days without seeing anything about it?
Ned and Alexis have a good talk..but I have little hope that Ned is going to be around consistently. Hell, the regulars aren't even on in a smooth fashion.
Fluke is Skyping and telling Ava to kill Michael. I just. Whateverrrrrrrrrr. You know she's not going to do it. HEY--what happened to the Brownstone renno? Why has it taken Sam FOREVER to get her hands on Rafe's phone? What PI doesn't know how to trace calls? :hittinghead:
Sonny and Carly. MOST OVERDONE THING IN SOAPS IN FOREVER. And I watched a hell of a lot of soaps. He's borderline pushing her to sex (locking the door and barring her exit??) Because of....his hatred of Franco. Hey, but mob boss..why don't you just KILL him? I mean, he had your son raped in prison, right? He stalked your BFF Jason forever and did things to Sam that were naughty. But the only thing you can think of is sleeping with Carly? Um....ok. And not for anything but Olivia seems to have meant squat to him. I liked their pairing until it became bland and boring.
PS. Josslyn isn't on enough. She so should have secretly caught Sonny that night!
Thank you for having Bobbie talk to Carly for a bit. Small joys. Two mama and daughter scenes in the same week...:) yeah!! (now I do wish Joss was there but, I won't be picky)
TRAPPED. The only good thing in this was Franco finding out Nina could walk. You know these two make me smile. Nina's decent into a little madness with Rosalie was glorious too. She is SO crazy. Fun to watch-- her mind was just twisting in the wind. Talking babies and Ava. LOVED It.
Tracy is just too stupid for words and it's so pissing me off. I don't even want to talk about it again.
Was Monica ever on in the 'conclusion' of the Alice story?
Rosalie finally remembers he saw Morgan once, in the park-- weeks ago. Sigh. Epitome of how these build ups go. MOLASSES. I'm glad theyI had a brief scene in the hospital. More please. I also suspect her father is a mobbie man--
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Ned shocking us all when he surprised the hell out of Tracy and Fluke!
PROP OF THE WEEK: Candle of evidence of Carly's tryst with Sonny. And Franco puts it out with his fingers.
FACE OF THE WEEK: One SATISFIED LADY!!
Good news is that if the ratings are up now--they'll probably go up even higher when NuJason's back and the Cassadines become unzombified. Ava's baby drama, Fluke coming out-- yada yada. Perhaps my time is up. Perhaps I need to adjust myself.
