|I'm ready for my close up!|
One thing was made clear throughout the entire week: Finola is a fearless, awesomely talented and just plain wonderful actress. Period. She owned the entire week. She's simply amazing.
My breakfast will be fruit-loops in honor of the great pair of Nina-Franco.
Duke Dies. Not here but in GH where they are operating on him.
This bizarre thing happened
Sonny finds out Duke is dead...gets something in his eye....
Sloane hatches a plan to have Jake take the blame-- so he can still work undercover.
Olivia sat in the hall and cried to Dante and Ned about leaving town. FOR 3 DAYS.
Carlos hid out at Sabrina's. He's the only one that can make me love her! And she actually tells Anna where he is! Which is STUPID Pier 54--duh. Carlos. Come on, seriously? That's where you pick to leave from? UGH.
And...almost forgot: Duke's funeral. It was nice--Flea and Mac showed up. Lucy and Anna hugged. Emma was adorable. The weirdest thing that happened before it was Emma asking Sam if people came back after they died. "No, they don't" she answered.
Hilarity from the soap watching world ensued. :)
FREAKY FRIDAY LIVE!
Ok, so.. first of all I saw the 2pm show, Which wasn't interrupted by the Boston Bombing verdict, so that was good. ABC had a "periscope" shot set up that you could watch during commercials only. They turned it on and showed you the crew/cast getting ready for the next scenes. It was so fun! Being on twitter made it even more special. The cast was tweeting fun selfies during the show.
The show itself wasn't that 'hugely" special until the end, imo. I mean, we continued with Thursday's show. Which, if you think about it must have been weird for the cast. Here they are taping 2-3 weeks out already and have to come back and revisit what they did before!! (I think you can tell Tyler got a hair cut, btw)
Becky and Becky were so entertaining!! Both of them just got into it. Hayden even got to throw a vase (see above). Nikolas totally went "What the hell" on the whole blackmail thing and let Hayden walk out! Liz freaked. "What is Gran going to think? I'll have to move"!! LOL
Sam and Jake...boring talk and pretty weird. I mean, Sam-- um..you are acting like you've never seen someone shoot someone before? She did say "Order" instead of "Oil" in my show. :giggle: Loved it. When Hayden walked in at the end my senses tingled!! Will she tell them or will bad-shot Shawn get there and spoil it?? Hmmmm... tick tick.
Nina and Franco!! The table breaking was fun--and Roger is just my fave. He's so cool and off-cuff. NIna in the wedding dress! Had NO clue that was coming. NONE. She took the water bottles out to practice like it was her bouquet. WHO is at the door to marry her??! I think another person on Twitter figured it out and I won't spoil. Just think reverse blackmail...
Sonny and Julian and Shawn. I'm noting this because Sonny backed Jules up and then the barware was destroyed by his butt. LOL THEN in epic fashion, Sonny threw the entire drinks cart! You know that was a bow to the barware lost over the years.
Then there was SLOANE. Holy Crap. If you saw or DVR'd the 2pm show you are in for a treat!! The actor totally was out of control! Bahahhaa. Just too funny. Yelled like Opera Man. Pointed like Disco Duck. I wish I could get the wav up here but I don't know how to insert it. Just know he was pointing like he was killing something. Poor Jordan just cowered in the corner. LOL. Geesh!! I guess by the 3pm show he had toned it down a bit. (someone must have read the tweets!)
Anna and Carlos. Oh Carlos. You said you were leaving"before sunrise" and you totally missed that deadline. I love he and Sabrina-- I guess it harkens back to my 70's teenage heart where the older bad guy falls for the innocent younger gal and she just can't help herself. *sigh* Ok, so POOR CARLOS is on Pier 54 like an idiot sitting duck and our Anna comes by. It got so good. I love both characters so I'm just dying a bit inside. Carlos gets it through the heart..and unless someone was standing behind Anna, looks like she shot him. Great tension on the 2pm show. Anna was spinning out of control all week. BOOM!
The fun ending was great with Lily-- she did the credits... :) Sonny came in and saved her from a bomb. Awww. Maurice looked like he was having a blast! That's the kind of thing we need more of.
So...all in all the week moved some things along and people actually DID die. Maybe the wrong people, but in a "mob war" you take your lumps!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: " I will kill you with my bare hands and I will OWN IT"!! Anna was fierce. It was a thing of beauty. Loved her laying into Julian. Alexis and Sam just stood there in awe!!
FACE OF THE WEEK: My Carrrrrrrrrlos... in the throws of death.. wahhh
PROP OF THE WEEK: So many to choose from!! I'm taking the credits at the end! Old School.
RUNNER UP: Mr. Table.
Can't wait for Monday because I think I know who's at the door to "marry" Nina and I want to see what happens with the Hayden thing. Hmmmm. What did you think? Did you get to watch it live? 2 or 3? Sorry West Coasters, but you still saw the show!! I keep thinking about Monday. What if an actor gets the flu bad? Stuck in traffic? What THEN?! "The part of Sonny Corinthos is being played today by Felix because he's the only one that knows all the lines" :GIGGLE:
I realize this will be over and we'll go back to regular GH but it's been a blast for me so far.
