I thought that if I wrote the blog in Latin it would be something different. I am sure you are sick of reading the same things over and over again. Kind of like the definition of insanity.
Instead of that, perhaps I'll just recap the week and keep my comments to a minimum.
Oh who am I kidding?
I'm having shots of tequila. Because....you know--GH . By the way, I will also demonstrate that GH went dark during filming of 'this week's' shows just by using hairstyles. I think the gap was Wed, with the 'new' shows being aired Thurs/Friday.
One of the more cheerful things was Maxie's dress. It's part of her new wardrobe-- along with that lime green suit, she looked resplendent. Kirsten tweeted to me that she did indeed get some new clothes on the show.
Let us all celebrate Maxie's summer dress. Drink!
We found out that Lesil sold out Ava to Scotty. Scotty then turned around and exposed her in court. I'M AVAAAAAAAAAA!! Ava then turned around and showed everyone that Nina was the one "stabbing" Silas. That's the long and short of it. Franco pleaded guilty--yada yada.. He gets thrown back in jail. Nina gets arrested and... Ava's in jail for Connie's murder. (more to come). But just know that there are a lot of people in jail, only one of whom is actually, maybe, going to stay there.
In a scene straight out of 5 months ago (?) Sonny went to scream at Ava while she was at the PCPD. This time he called her an incubator and snarled "you'll never see my daughter again"!! "You're dead to me"!! Blab blab--and scene. This right here sealed my forever Sonny boredom for the 99th time. This and him talking to Julian like the Don Giovanni guy from Amadeus. Sonny is SO one-note that it's getting sad to watch.
HEY! With 3 folders and a decoder ring, Nathan manages to crack the entire Silas case in 1/2 of a day. They "arrest" Ric, who is really sent out to catch the real culprit...(who we think is Donna Mills). Ric goes into the courtroom, finds her and they talk about how she got Silas to sign some document. In a Faux-Flashback we see Donna go to Slias' apartment. I guess we wait to view the rest next week.
While in jail, Nina and Franco bond over juice boxes and act adorable. They really are a great pair and it's a shame they've been so isolated. I've said it before and I'll say it one more time: Nina needs to be Alan's daughter from a fling with Donna Mills. There's a secret will that leaves her the house (don't ask me how) and she moves into the mansion. Nina being Nina, decides to let everyone stay as long as they let Franco move in as well.
Well, that didn't happen. What did happen is that Kiki found out that Morgan slept with her mother again. By the way, if you note Franco's hairstyle between the 2 days he morphs into long-haired Todd before your very eyes. They didn't even try for consistency.
Hair evidence part two:
Monday and Tuesday "Morgan Chat" Part A ( Note Carly's hair)
Thursday/Friday "Morgan Chat" Part B (seriously, same chat, different clothes/hair. It's not just curled, it's way longer).
Carly and Sonny talk all week about Morgan. Perhaps he's bi-polar? You know, erratic behavior, the gambling, and on and on. Sonny didn't want to believe it. Carly couldn't stop yapping about it and finally he gave in and agreed to talk to Morgan about having a psych eval. Can you guess how that talk went?
Not well. Morgan thinks it's all Ava's fault. Look, I've discussed the whole mental illness as a story line before and I'm kinda over it so let me offer you an alternative. Since Morgan is acting like either a tweeker or a speed-baller how about this: Morgan has been using his name to get into a side business selling drugs on a lower-level with people believing it's actually Corinthos-sanctioned. Morgan, being Morgan, gets too big-pants, pisses people off and that's where the mobular stuff is coming from. Morgan is also sampling the goods and has an addiction.
There. Solved that!
*note: Look up there at Sonny's yelling face and compare to Morgan's. Same, no?
In the middle of everything, very disconnected to the world, Tracy and Paul decided to become friends and share dinner. So...um, DRINK!
Oh, and in case you cared, Jules failed to get Ava's "tape". Franco's failed...Julian's failed. So...um..DRINK!
Anyone care to talk about Dillon's movie? Anyone? *Crickets*.. Just know that most of the people that were going to work on it got jobs on GoT and now Lulu and or Maxie have to fill in. Hilarity will ensue. DRINK!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: To showcase the absurdity that is ABC marketing, I would like to present the ad they were running during the giant Morgan confrontation. That's for Dr. Ken. A "gaffaw" of a blow-up surgical glove high-fiving during the drama scenes. Just made me giggle at a very inappropriate time. I hate those stupid pop-up ads in the corner of the TV. Just stop it.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Nico's Juice Boxes!!
FACE OF THE WEEK: You know NLG was like "THIS is a COURT room scene?? When is my trip to Ireland starting"!? I actually enjoyed this because Donna Mills, Michelle and Nancy were all in a scene together. Ah, bliss.
NOT THE FACES OF THE WEEK: Momo and Kiki finding out Ava is Ava. Wow...don't go all overboard there with the expressions, kids.
And...there you go. NO movement in the Jake story. NOTHING about Brad/Lucas. The ratings are scary low. I've given my 2 cents and I'm tired.
One bright spot are my periscopes which I enjoy doing at 2pm. They are live and I only video the opening of GH--not the whole show. They are fun and you can view them for 24 hours. (It's an app). I would like to do podcasts but that's a whole other level I'm not ready for yet.
I start full time work again on Wed. next week. It's school time! I have 8 lovely 3-5 year olds just waiting for me to help their speech! If I'm not here everyday then that's why.
Thanks for reading again this week... :) Hope you had a good weekend. Cheers.
