|Let us Pray...|
Be still my soapy heart. The more weird shit going on, the better for me. And boy, was there some bananas stuff to watch!!
I'm having peanut butter toast and 'naners in honor of all the cray happening and probably a shot or 2 of some corn whiskey. (yes, I was born in the country, I know what that is!)
Hunker Down and get ready to REPENT!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh. HELLO. Where to start? Where to begin!!!??? I guess I'll lead with the most boring first:
Sonny and HIS "PLAN": Sonny and Shawn. Duh..who can we pin this on? Thank goodness Sonny's going to hire someone to shoot Franco because we all know poor Shaun can't seem to aim straight. Sonny is the weak link right here. I mean, one-note, one-note one note. The saving grace? Franco watching the CarSon porn and Sonny's armpit on the phone. I guess we couldn't have crazy-tumorgrowingback Franco without him. I also think that we may be thisclose to having Sonny RE-PENT for the AJ murder. And NO on that Olive color on Sean. Thx.
AVA's Labor: Meanwhile, at the Brownstone--Thank the lord that neither Kiki or Morgan actually, you know..work because who would be around to look after Ava and her hysterics? The whole thing is pretty ludicrous-- like they can't drive to another town to get her to a hospital but I'm not complaining. Morgan is shoving those pills down Ava not knowing that they are labor-inducing. Heh. Sabrina is freaking out. She finally gets a hold of Jordan (ever hear of texting?) and lets her know the skivvy. By the time Ava finds out what's going on, she may be in full-blown labor. Who walks in? Kiki. Brain cell counts went up by .02. Although she does come up with the idea to go get her daddy. That takes so long though, it's a wonder we didn't hit Thanksgiving!! (more on Silas later)
Amsterdam: Monday was the day that our Jerry appeared! Just when you think it was going no where and Tracy was going to consume a nice pot cake, he walks in! First off, let me say I really REALLY like that Tracy, Pat and Sam are together on this. Having 3 characters in a situation is so much more rich than just two. Especially when they are not traditionally paired. Jerry thickened the plot----does he know there IS a Fluke or does he think the only Luke-face is the guy he has in Miscavage?
Since he's working with Helena we do learn most of the truth, and the ELQ connection. Jerry and Hells? YES!! I need all this to come together --and quick. I need Dr. O, Donna Mills, Jerry, Hells--Faison and whomever else in the same scenes. I need Spencer to walk in. Maybe he's some hybri-clone that's Damien Omen potential. Ahhh. THE Possibilities!!
PS. all the blonde extras in the Amsterdam cafe cracked me up. heh
Wedding Planning: WOW. I could have not written this better myself. (and since you know how well I think of myself, you know that's a compliment! LOL) THIS is why you fill large houses with all sorts of people. They did it on OLTL and I am hoping following it up here since this worked so well. Lucas, Bobbie and Maxie. Great combo. Part of me wished Spinelli was there, working on how to do the 'wedding video'. Anyway, it was joyful. Carly walks in and everyone jumps on her because she's marrying Franco. Josslyn comes down in her "Bridesmaids" outfit and it's..corn. Which I know a lot of you are sick of, but it's one of those inside jokes, I , of course, appreciate to no end. I still wonder what people not on the net make of Joss' corn-obsession! heh. She was a mini-Carly brat! Lucas and Maxie carry her upstairs and Bobbie manages to get out of Carly that Michael is the reason she's marrying Franco. No details (yet) but at least Carly came out with part of it.
Nutter Nina: On to the main show. NINA!! Some of you hate her and are over her, and I have to tell you, I am a bit exhausted by her but DAMN! First poker-faced Silas goes ballistic on her and then...she's the one that unleashes! You Son of a Bitch! Her hate comes pouring out. She even knocks ol' Silas out when he grabs her. Too bad we didn't actually get to see that scene. Nina then goes over to visit her brother when lo and behold, who answers the door but Donna Mills! Donna had already told Nate all about his sister's crazy mental condition and backstory earlier (she shoved Mom downstairs, she almost was involuntarily committed but married Silas instead), so when Daughter Dear shows up and starts going off, we are more than ready! In the end, Nina spares Mama's life but wants a baby in return. Ava's baby! '
(If you're wondering why Silas is up there and not Nina, you'll see way more of her face down below. )
The Mystery Guest: And...we are coming to NuSt.JakeFace yet again. I do have to admit Billy is a fabulous actor (yes, I can tell that even when he's in a hospital bed) and I'm liking his scenes. Liz practically living in his room? eh. I'm not saying I don't like them together, I'm just saying it's a bit boring after awhile. He's starting to remember voices from the accident, yada yada. It's going to be a long haul people before his Jason ID comes out. Helena steals his file-- so he doesn't exist. He'll have to have things come back in bits and pieces. You know, Lonnnnnng and Sllloooowww.
Franco's Porn Watch: Yep. He went there. He's in the conference room to presumably edit the CarSon sex tape for everyone's enjoyment at the wedding. Silas walks in. Franco has no qualms about telling him about "The List". After he leaves, Michael walks in (carrying around his Dad's clinic blueprints) and uses his eyebrows to help him decide if he should be Franco's best man. You know, the guy that wanted Carter to 'scare' him in prison but ended up raping him. Yeah. BLTs come out and we visit Mommy in the bin where he tells her that she's coming to his wedding. Wonder if she'll pop out of the cake? (and btw, Sonny is planning to break her out anyway so he can pin the murder on her; phew!)
Something I thought of:
You could totally play a game in the pool with this: Franco! PORNO...Franco...PORNO!!
Wardrobe Note: Hell, yes, Brit wore that snappy black cocktail dress TO WORK. Breakfast wasn't enough--nope!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: 99% of you can guess it. It's the REPENT SCENE with Nina on top of her Mama---!!!!!!!!! Gotta love the perfect lip-gloss!!
FACE OF THE WEEK: There were 6,000 Nina ones to choose from. Morgan had some pretty "DUH" moments too. But I like this one! OR...maybe this one:
Silas' face the entire rant--it never changed. Swear to you..not once.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Those stupid white antlers that Nina was going to use on Donna. Oh MY GOSH!! Finally a use for those things!!! I was very sad when she didn't do it, btw.
I know this mayhem is not everyone's cup of tea. Believe me, I get it. But for me? All this stuff coming fast and furious and not knowing what I'm going to see next is so much fun. It's also when I can turn off the "THAT CAN'T HAPPEN" part of my viewing and just go with it.
Why? Who knows what's different. All I know is that it feels different right now and I'm lovin' it.
