Holy Upon Holy. Even when I FF through most of Wed-Friday GH episodes I was aghast at the continued Saint Sonny Parade. I put up a photo of one of the few sparkly spots for me...The Davis girls. Miracles DO happen people!
I guess we should saddle up and talk about last week. Short and Sweet, like me. Ok, I'm not sweet but short--yep. That I am.
In what feels like week 47 of Sonny Shiva, Dante tells him the truth and sends Sonny into cardiac arrest. Seems not even coma-Sonny can take the fact that someone actually told him what a bad father he is and how selfish he can be. WILL HE LIVE through surgery?!! WILL HE? Welp--what do you think? He opens his eyes in the not too distant future to gave upon his adoring fans and impart some dimple wisdom.
Michael is basically taking over where Daddy left off--ordering around guards, taking care of family business. Trying to reign in Morgan. Oh we can all tell where this is headed!
Morgan: "I'm going into the OR (during the surgery) and finding out what's up with Dad"!! Good Lord. Can they make this kid MORE of an idiot? Nope. Not possible. I understand he's going all "bipolar" but it's an insult in so many ways. I guess he was officially diagnosed off camera? He needs to be hosed down and shoved in a hot factory making tires for 6 months.
He's now gone off half-cocked to kill Julian. That's going to end well, no?
Ric got bamboozled by Nina and Franco. This was one of the few scenes I enjoyed this week. Nico was on point and Ric was made to sign the annulment and give up all rights to Nina's money. He then went to Sam's where they talked on the couch. They've always had inappropriate chemistry and it shined through again this week!
Liz told Jake he was Jason..and..AHAHHAA. NOPE! GOT YA! Just like the writers
"Got" us!! Well, not really. Anyone that sat through those 2 days of her trying to spit out the truth knew what was coming--nothing.
Poor God, trying to deal with the world's crisis and everyone and their brother is asking to save Sonny and, in Dante's case his marriage too! They made us think for a second he may tell Lulu. Ok, not really--because..nope. That's not going to happen. Val will have to drop the baby-bomb on him first. Will it tear Lante apart? Yawn. Oh, by the way, Dante also apologized to God for actually telling Sonny the truth because, well... Saint Sonny.
Ava's free. Free to be..Ava. Why? Because Scotty wants 5 million bucks all of a sudden instead of bringing down the crime family in PC. Welp. someone broke into his room at the Metro and stole the tape. Who hides anything under the mattress anymore? My Mimi used to after the Depression but now? Well, you deserve to have it taken, mister!
Nathan read Val like a book. I FF through most of this. Don't care. I also FF through Lucas talking to Julian. Unless it's about the story that seems to be in a black hole (the wedding) I just don't care. Don't care. Nope.
One wrong righted--Lexi is back as Kristina. These two look like sisters!! Anyway, even though she's back to sit at Sonny's bedside to tell him how much she loves her Daddy, I still took it in stride. Highlight for me. I do like families and the Davis family hasn't been featured in forever. Lexi said she's on/off-- and is here for a short stay. Fix that, TPTB. We need her age on this show. She's well liked. Just do it.
Alexis is backing Jules and rented a lake house for September to "get away from it all". Well, okay then. I mention this because Morgan will skulk out Julian there later.
SCENE AND PROP OF THE WEEK: Yes, it's a combo. Give it UP for those scissors and that blonde hair dye! Ava is back and that WIG IS DEAD. Bye...see ya, hated ya.
AWKWARD MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Morgan hugs Patrick within an inch of his life after the Sonny-Saving-Surgery. Carly's like "Morgan...um...chill"!! Just think of what would have happened if Sonny didn't make it. LOL Hug of Death!
FACES OF THE WEEK: Sam and Alexis all happy the Davis Girlies are together. More please.
So, Sonny's getting shot is a catalyst for basically, the entire family and probably town forgiving Sonny his sins and 'reuniting' everyone. It's also being used to set Michael up as the heir apparent and Number 2 in charge, leaving Morgan the half-cocked brother out for revenge at anyone he thinks was at fault. Poor TJ--he, the CIA and President Obama were also on the list that Morgan is pissed off at. Ava's out and breathing heavily over the tape still being missing. Why couldn't that sheeze just be over? Who wants to spend the next how many months looking for that? Nope. We have Samtrick engaged, Lake engaged--all getting ready for the "big reveal". THE JAYSUS reveal. Dante's marriage will implode when the truth comes out. Who knows if anything is going to happen with ELQ, Brad/Lucas or anything else. We are going to get all mob, all the time. Especially when the Sonny-shooter is known. I say Carlos is on the loose and he's working for or with Paul Hornsby. I can't think of another reason he'd be on the show, sitting around in the Q living room pretending to care about Dillon's movie.
|THANK GOD I got a new job to go to....|
BTW, this all feels so Guza that it's making me crazy. I know he's gone but that "black-hand" just lingers in the air like a stench. Even the lighting looks darker.
So all in all:
Good direction: Nico out from under threats, Ric running around looking dashing in his glasses, Davis Girl reunion and...um...Maxie being cute with Tracey.
Bad Direction: Well. Mob. Guns. Guns. Mob...Sonny worship...continuation of the dreary, drawn out Jake reveal, and The Dante Guilt (capital letters). St.Sonnyifcation. Gun, and an apparent bipolar diagnosis we didn't get to see.
