Think I'm kidding? Oh, I kid you not. Especially on a Sunday. So...sit back and partake of Sunday Brunch. Eggs, Sonny Side up.
It's the least we can do for The Man of The Hour.
We were told how bad "The Writer" had been when giving Sonny a story the past few years. Poor Sonny...went to jail. Then saved the entire town and was pardoned by the Governor! Hell, he even go to have crypt sex. But, nay it was not enough. The ratings sank (supposedly according to one net exec because Sonny wasn't 'front and center enough') so we had to rally and get him on screen more than the 98% he was on already!
MOB! Get that MOB out there! So, in the midst of Morgan's "BiPolar Adventure" we really had to segue to Sonny's 5th wedding and not only that (wait for it) HE GETS SHOT!! So shocking that no one, even the 13 year olds that watched, even blinked an eye.
Now, if you listen to TJ tell it, Sonny was basically Superman, Batman and Catwoman all rolled into one. TJ had stars in his eyes. Literally. They twinkled. Jordan of course, tried to talk him down but nope. He was just glowing with Sonny admiration.
Maxie, Sabrina and Lulu also talked about Sonny. How he's dark--yet charming--deadly--yet loving. *sigh* So Dreamy!!! Sabrina seemed a tad worried that Michael might follow in Dad's footsteps. She heard the story about how Michael confessed to Claudia's murder to exonerate his Dad. Awww. Nobility runs in that family, no? Oh and they also compared shootings of their loved ones to each other. :giggle: !!
Sabrina is momentarily worried until she sings to Avery. She sings the same song to Avery that Sam sang to Danny the night Jason was plugged at the docks.
Let's think for a minute here because no one else is. TJ's kidnapped, Sonny's shot and these three ding-dongs sit at his HOUSE and just sip champagne and play with the baby. Anyone think: Oh gee, let's get the hell out of here and take Avery with us? Sabrina should have said "I was so wrong, Michael never should have brought you back here". But, NOPE. Sing a lullaby. Oh, and don't tell me he has "security"--because I didn't see any and Philly went to GH.
We know Michael loves his father but we really needed to be reminded because you know, he was SO mean to him after he shot AJ. How could he forsake his father's name? AJ was, after all, a slime ball that deserved it, right? "I will love you forever".. (I was waiting for Michael to read Sonny that kid's book of the same title)
Patrick had some bad news. It seems a bullet lodged next to Sonny's spine. It missed his heart thank goodness, but Sonny may be facing being paralyzed. Which is tough for a mobster. Carly cries " anything less than a FULL Recovery will not be enough for Sonny"!!! Because you know. it's SONNY!! Can't you picture him all mopey in a wheelchair for the next how many months? *sigh*
Meth-head Morgan was all agitated at this point and blamed Ric for letting out Charlie Pants Gangster because he made a deal. I guess everyone forgets that even IF Ol' Charlie was in jail, the 'shooter' would have just hired someone else to kidnap TJ. Derp. It's not like there's only one goon in town!! But, it's Ric's fault. To hit the point home at just how far Michael has come, he takes 'over' da family and orders Philly to toss him outta the hospital!! Oh, he was to the manor born! I'm sure this will further fuel Morgan's "I'm getting revenge for you Dad" mode.
Morgan then blames Julian and goes to the PCPD spouting off at the mouth again. I'm so team Julian in this. lol...I think I'll set up a Go Fund Me account to get him out of jail. Dante ends up punching Jules in the mouth and sending him to lock up! Geesh, the guy was walking on the docks!! But you know, new month, Julian back in the pokey.
Oh, man..Liz lied her face off on Friday. Really badly. She's so past the point of no return it's not even funny. There's no way she's telling Jake yet who he is so this will be fake-out #39. I have no idea how she's going to recover from this. None.
Oh! Tracy was on! Tracy was in the exact same place she's been the last 5 times she's been on the show. In the living room, drinking martinis. Yep. Go back if you don't believe me. And if Paul Hornsby isn't totally into the cartel again, then I'm missing something. He's got "I DID IT" stamped on his forehead.
Don't think for a minute I forgot about the other God within our midst. He answers to the name Jake Doe but we all know and love him as St. Jaysus Morgan. Savior of The Sonny. And save he did! Wow, he threw Sam behind a barrel, went into that warehouse, took over one of the "goons" and in 3 shots, took them all down. WOW. Flashbacks to the 90 other shootings Stone Cold managed to pull off. Look at that photo up there, he even has that blank stare down pat.
The Sloane stuff was mind-numbing and even though Finola gave her all, it was dull. Just know this: Sloane has the gun Anna used to kill Carlos with her prints on it and he's ready to use it. She's glad she didn't get together with him. Yada yada.
Oh-- btw, Val went home early from the wedding when she got sick. Lulu said she wanted another baby "right away". Valerie looked at her belly. Then cried a bit. (well, watery eyes) and Bobbie took her home. Cue panic at the Dante House soon.
The only other thing of note was that Hayden and Nikolas continued their 4 day long bathing suit discussion into this week. We also found out that Nik loves a cold pool and even swims year round.
Um..what? Guess nothing freezes on that island.
PS. Got enough baby oil on?
SCENES OF THE WEEK: Anytime that Avery was on. My ovaries hurt. She is just adorable and she babbles on cue!! Prediction: If Sabrina gets pregnant with Michael's baby it's going to be "omg the mob" allll over again.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Dante is MAD. He's really, really mad. Because you know, Sonny shouldn't be shot--even if he is a mobular man and basically lives with guns. No SIR! He's MAD!
PROP OF THE WEEK: I hope you read the interview I had with Mr. Ventilator. It's the next post down...Anyway how could this noble device be anything but prop of the week? (he even met The Pope!)
If you think I'm being over the top about this week then you are a die-hard Sonny lover that doesn't mind watching the same things happen over and over. By Friday I was thisclose to punching my TV set in the face.
LISTEN CAREFULLY: I thought the actors were spot-on. The dialog for the situation was good. It was exciting--IF IT HADN'T HAPPENED a million times before!! I mean come on!! Especially the "will he live" part. We know this isn't Game of Thrones. Maybe it should be. If characters could just die and we didn't see it coming, it would be something to behold. This is repeat repeat repeat. Many of us have watched since Sonny came on the scene in 1993. That's how many years of this? Far too many.
You want to keep viewers and add new ones. Do the younger set like this stuff? I don't know--but when I watch what they are into, I somehow doubt an aging mobster getting married five times to the same person and getting shot is really their thing.
Having Michael and Sonny at odds was a brilliant idea that worked. Sonny shot AJ, now son and father are battling. Michael going to the Qs was also great-- his anger towards Sonny was justified and deep. That could have been played on for years. It would have been interesting to have Michael totally take over Corinthos Coffee (the legit part) by raiding the corporation, and leaving Sonny with no shell to launder his money through. We have "Bo, Clint and Asa" all lined up to mimic great years of OLTL and ...boom. Done. Now what? Are Michael and Morgan going to fight about who gets to run the organization if Pop is in a wheelchair?
I can see it now: A darkened room with Sonny in a corner; legs covered in a blanket..gesturing to Michael to come closer
"Son, it's time...time to take down our enemies one by one..I trust you to carry on the family legacy"...
Morgan crashes in the room "You give him everything! The love, the power and the glory"!!
And..Scene. I can write it in my sleep. *sigh*
Yes, I have one more major bitch. Where was Lucas at the wedding? Where have Brad and Lucas been since they were supposed to get married and we found out Rosie is Brad's wife?
*Crickets* If I could, I would stomp down to TPTB and just rage in their faces. First off, that was one of the major things I was looking forward to this summer: a fun wedding between these two. But NOPE. You have to throw a damn wrench into it with some story about Brad having to marry Rosie. Ok...so? ...then..um? You ever gonna follow up on that? And even if you're not, having Brad and Lucas at Sonny and Carly's wedding only makes damn sense. Good Grief. I know you have 800 characters on the show but at least try to use the ones you have effectively. We probably could have lived without 50% of the Hayden Nikolas bathing suit chat and had them on.
So, that's it. You are probably all jazzed up because you had so much coffee reading this giant blog. Sorry, I had a lot to say. This week was traumatizing to me. LOL Time for another break?
Mind you, ratings will go up--summer's over. They always do. Ergo, suits will think "wow, look Mob does work".
Lord Help Us, Amen.
