Who's there? Ghost Carlos? A recently back Luke? A long lost son? Or maybe it's Laura--looking all the part of "crashing the party" as you can get.
|Woman after Wubby's Own Heart....|
Nope, not in a great mood. Which is why I turn to TV to get my groove on and have a few moments of escape.
Unfortunately for me, GH has been less than forthcoming with merriment.
I did find bright spots again this week--and if I put them all together it would run about 10 minutes.
So, for that joyful 10 minutes I will fill the blog with fun! I have some leftover donuts from Friday's National Donut Day..so..Let's eat!
Let me out..OUT of this scene. JUST LET ME GO... Please, I'm begging!!
Ok, Alexis, I'll get the car...meet me out back...
And so the Ava story continued. We were supposed to be 'hoodwinked" or at least guessing about Denise DEMOOOOOCHIO for most of the week. Mama Delia explained that she had twins, gave up Denise and ..the rest is--welp.
Kiki bought it in about 2.2 seconds and was Sooo (Squee) happy about her new Auntie!! Julian let her live at the apartment Hey, all of Ava's stuff is there, why not just put it on? How how FUN. @@ Finally Silas comes home and Kiki tells him about her "new Aunt". He figures it out and high -tails it over to Denise.
This is where I start to lose my sheeze. We actually sit through "Denise" trying to convince Silas she's really Denise. And for some reason, it was written so that Silas explains the entire Ava awakening to "Denise" (and the audience) in flashbacks. So, essentially we got the whole Denise thing "explained" because everything happened off camera.
Denise is based on a hairdresser that Delia knew. Who drank Pabst Blue Ribbon. And Ava had her fingerprints erased.
I'm still at a loss as to why this entire story was written this way. Ava's been in a black hole for 6 months. NOW she'll parade around as "Denise" until she's found out somehow.
SILAS IS SHOCKED FACE! Shocked I tell you!!!
I can't deal with months and months of this Queens stuff and look at that wig!! @@ Yes, I love Maura West but like this? WHY????
Let's get the slackers out of the way. You know why they had a good week? It was donut day Friday! They live for their douuts. Anyway, Morgan decides to go boxing and forgo sex for about 20 minutes. Michael finds him there! They argue! They Fight! They have no shirts on! But like real men, they settle it by throwing some punches and calling a truce.
Olivia said goodbye to Dante and went off to live with Ned and the baby (no name yet). In real life, she had her daughter, at the end of May. So congrats and happy respite!
Valerie, a former criminology student, got herself a job at the Police Station! How you ask? Well, Dante was happy to vouch for her and the new commissioner, Jordan-- thought it was a swell idea. Now she can be really close to Dante during work hours. I sense many lunches and late nights coming!! Hey, in fact, they are going out tonight! You know, the night of Tracy and Luke's engagement party. The one that Lulu apparently forgot to mention to Dante!
Franco stewed about Nina's marriage to Ric. Ric went to talk to Donna Mills about his plan, tried to pull one over on her and yada yada, she read him the riot act and supposedly they are back in cahoots.
On to the next plot. There's a bunch of talk about switching money; Michael's and Nik's...and Nik wanting Michael to think that Nina wouldn't sell shares to him. She really sold shares to Nikolas. Rosie pulls this all off. The interesting part of all this is....
Nina actually had---PAPER stock shares.
In the safe.
And, I suppose we are suppose to believe that those papers contain ownership like they did back in 1928.
So...upshot is: Nikolas has more shares. And I still really don't know why he cares or wants ELQ control other than he wants to be 'bad'.
Franco is out of his shares. Which there goes my only FUN I saw in this story; the possibility of Franco in the Q mansion, causing trouble. *sigh*
Oh, and Franco? What did he do you ask? He got Nathan to "arrest" Nina on kidnapping charges because she "told him" she did it. They haul her down to the PCPD and try to get her to sign the annulment papers.
Fail. Nate comes through! Franco makes Nate SO tolerable!! LOL. I love my Roger!
This happened. Which I really wish I had never witnessed. Thank God Crown Royal was involved. And, btw... I'm not angry she slept with Sloane after Duke died so soon, I'm just mad she slept with Sloane period. Hate the guy. Don't care for the actor or his acting choices. In fact, I wouldn't put it past him to be Faison the way he's been a creepy-creeperson on Anna. :shudder.
SO HAPPY Anna was skeeved out by what she'd done. She threw up, and looked like Sloane as if he was a slug on her shoe.
Luke's home! Luke--who seems to have gotten a nice lobotomy during his psyche stay, is back to ask Tracy for her hand in marriage. I wonder how many engagement and wedding parties they've had over the years? How many diamond rings? Tony's playing this very subdued and I'm not sure why. Is he still Fluke? Or is his "integration" making him a passive bore? Or... did he decide to leave his Luke-Charm at the door? Whatever it is, it's tedious. Perhaps it will change now that Emma and Genie are back? Or is this the "new normal"?
And not for nothin' but could the engagement party have happened any faster? That was just plain weird. And also, the non- presence of Monica is really starting to be a Aiden-type joke. It's like she never existed.
Laura's back. And yes, she was shaking...was it rage?
|This is actually a REAL tattoo of Tony Geary's.|
Luke's speech "I could just go off into the sunset quietly..' (para-phrased). "Love is essential, it is the saving grace of our existence". Then he goes on to talk about how much he loves Tracy and their story. Of course, you- know- who pops up. Given what most of us know about the Genie/Tony saga, all of this was so poignant...and telling. I think there's going to be an adventure involving Lucky/Ethan and Holly (probably a rescue) and things will progress from there.
PS. take a look at BRAD's face in this scene. Heh..his radar is WAY up and ready to film for you tube! heh
AND...here's LUKE's face when he sees Laura-- *sigh*--guys I have little hope. Such little hope with this!! He'd better PERK THE HELL up when he and Laura find Holly--or take some damn Prozac-or something!!
I promised you some brighter notes...here they are!
BRIGHT SPOT Number One:
Little Peach to brighten my screen.
BRIGHT SPOT Number Two:
He's very quiet, this new Dillon, but I'm hopeful. I'm happy to have a Q actually COME ON instead of GOING OFF. Let's see what this guy has got!
That's right...you heard me..I"M the new commissioner! I'm getting some NEW SHOES, girl!!
Brad and Lucas' marriage-- yeah. My fave thing happening on the show. Of course it's all weirdly CRAMMED in with the Luke party but I digress. Scotty gets in a dig at Sonny and I am waiting to see how Brad's family is done. A ray in my day!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Two old friends, saying good-bye. It was bittersweet and written really well. About love and loss and growing old. Something we all know about.
PROP OF THE WEEK: The Envelope/Shares that Nina clutched to her breast for the entire day. That's her face, thinking of Franco. Awww. you know she misses him.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Oh this says SO SO much!!! The Sloane story, GH in general, the works.
Fastest party in the history of whatever! Plus it's on the Haunted Star? LOL..too funny. Lulu actually didn't even tell anyone about the party until she found Dante at the Floating Rib where the other party was happening. Poor Brad and Lucas--party interruptus. Things happened at lighting speed.
This actually reminds me of the Ric/Nina wedding--thrown in and blobbin' up the canvas.
These next few weeks will either be brilliant--or not. I'll either get sucked right back in and love it with the Luke story --or not. There's really no in between for me right now. The ginormous cast is making viewing a bit of a mess. The Jake thing has gone on so so long-- and now the Denise crud will be hanging around. Let's just see where/ how this is all done.
