|Best Way to watch the show this week? You bet.|
Another long blog. Epic Long. There were quite a few things happening this week and people moved all over the place. Trying to timeline this was a bitch lol. I'm having a protein shake. I need it to keep up. I can't believe I don't get paid for this. It only took me 2 days and hours to write! Ah, for the love of our soap.
This week's blog is dedicated to the numerous tissues that had to be available around the set this week. All that crying. All those tears.
I really wish there was more on the Gala and on Crimson. You know, things that are fun on the show but-- welp. Jason and all that drama. Why have any joy? It was a really strange week I thought. An awful lot about Val/Dante/Lulu. Like A LOT. The Liz-Lie reveal was peppered in here and there, along with a weird Anna-caper (involving Mac) and Morgan's never ending bipolar story. Hayden met with a hottie but that entire story is feeling a bit stale as well. Just get it over with already.
What? This is the expression you will see EVERY day no matter what seemed to be goin' on. (I was not impressed).
Believe it or not, this all started on MONDAY. Yep. MONDAY. Seems like I don't know-- years ago. Sam came in, told Liz she knew all about the fact that she knew about Jason before Jason knew about Jason. Yada yada...bunch of stuff, rehash. Liz didn't cop to the fact that she knew anything and then Jason got home and welp. She didn't tell him either.
Nope, we had to go sit through I don't know how many scenes of Jason talking to Sam and Liz, then to Sam, then back to Liz.
But first? He had to be yelled at by Carly for ages. "Don't go back to Liz... don't ...do this..don't do that..." He finally told her to buzz off.
He also told Sam to buzz off and threw her out of Liz' house. Then, he has a change of heart and goes to Patrick's to talk to her again. She explains the whole story that Liz knew. He didn't want to believe it..but he GOES BACK to Liz's to talk to her again. *sigh*
Liz finally says she lied. She's lied since May and the Nurses' Ball. Jason reels at the information. They have words, he leaves ...
And, you know, Jason was SO upset. Can you tell?
Jason found his way back to Sonny--(violins play) at the gym. They "hit the bag", talk about lying women and take a swig of whiskey. I mean.. I was half expecting them to go get matching tattoos next! Sonny told Jason that some women lie--Carly did it all the time. Liz however "did it for selfish reasons" (like Carly ever did it for NON-selfish reasons?) and he shouldn't take her back. Jason leaves and shows up again at Liz. Sam is calling him on the phone. Does he go in? Does he not? What? WHAT!!!?? That boy was back and forth to Liz' house this week more than her kids were.
On the OTHER end of the spectrum, Patrick was busy talking to Epiphany about wooing Sam and reaffirming their love.
How did that go you ask?
First he got Emma out of the house by telling her he was setting the date with Sam. She was all cute and exited. Off she went with her little Frozen backpack and sleeping bag.
Sam came in-- told Patrick where she had been and the whole Lie. He was like "You love Jason". She was all "no I don't"..but she realized she does. He smashes some roses they eventually call it off.
FEEL THE FEELSsssssss
Oh then the damn broke. She came back early to find out the wedding date not knowing that Pat and Sam had had it out and Sam was leaving. Little Emma had a melt down. Poor baby! She had Robin leave, then Sabrina now Sam. She was superb in these scenes. It was heartbreaking. All she wants to do is call Mommy.
BUT! Guess who has Mommy? Why it's JERRY JACKS!! Look at this! He's all mad because Robin has failed with her experiments. She pleads to talk to little Emma. She finally does and...She tells Emma she CAN'T COME HOME!! Even tho Emma is screaming and yelling that she needs her Mommy.
It was painful. And if Robin knew she'd be killed she just should have shouted the truth really fast and told them the danger that lurks. But nope.
I am busy praying to the soap gods that they get this adventure of finding Robin right. It's a tricky thing to write, imo. Here's hoping.
Sam goes to her Mom's and Jules' new house. I'm happy with this. I love "Central Housing" like they had on AMC and OLTL. It provides a great catch-all for characters. Sam had a good talk with Alexis. Julian acted all Daddy-like and huffed and puffed about Jason being in the mob. (um, ok). Sam is like 40, right? so... oh well. I guess you always need your parental input.
Loved seeing Mac Daddy but this was the biggest waste of time all week. So not exciting and so so dreary. YAWN. Whatever. Anna went to Sloane's ...called Paul. Paul went in talked to a very interesting landlord and took the phone. Anna wore gloves so I'm assuming no prints? Who knows. Don't care.
This was..well... Lulu just gabbed again and again about she and Dante's status. All of a sudden she's at the HS 24-7. "working" Like the boat ever has customers. :giggle:
And Dante talked and talked too! Nathan was telling him to cool it with Valerie. Not only because of the whole "it's pretty early" stuff either. No, WORK forbids it! But, Dante knows best and is like, "um, thanks but no thanks, pal".
Valerie gets advice from Auntie Bobbie (which if you know her history is pretty funny). Great to see Bobbie. I kept thinking that they both lived at Carly's still-- and Carly is at Sonny's. So, you see, I was busy thinking about that instead of the Vante situation. They DO both live at Carly's still right?
Valerie and Dnnte met for dinner..and then went to the loft. Olivia dropped off Rocco, who developed a fever. Dante went out to get some aspirin and Olivia comes back to find Valerie holding the toddler. Whoops. She unleashes her Mama Italian Wrath of "Family-First".
Dante appeared a bit confused.
Then..oh then.. a good thing happened! Johnny Z stepped out of the shadows and into the mix. Never mind he's a fugitive. Welp. That doesn't matter. He is cute and flirts. She laments about Valerie and he says he'll "take care of her" if she wants. Like kill her. Instead of fulfilling my wish, Lulu's all like "no..no...just make her miserable". Dillon eventually finds Johnny hiding behind the bar. Dilly decided to not tell anyone he saw JZ because Lulu told him not to. The one thing I'm intrigued about is how Johnny is going bamboozle ol' Val. That's about it.
Michael figures out something is up with Sabby's pregnancy. Mainly she's too "big" and something could be wrong. Felix heads him off at the pass. Sabrina is busy talking to Patrick at The Floating Rib and these two walk in. (Like they always go out to dinner!) Felix warns Sabrina. She says she just wants a "Normal night with no drama" with Michael. I guess the boom will lower sooner rather than later. Probably in time for TC to give birth in real life. Why she just couldn't be pregnant with Michael's baby is beyond me. We need a Q. Carlos will be off the show unless they give him a brain tumor so...??
UM...HELLO!!! HELL to the ELL OO!! Curtis! You were looking so wonderful in your Hayden scene!! Hayden got him to find the bullet. They had a cute exchange. Nikolas walked in and seethed to see them together. Poor Nikolas, one lie came out with the Jason thing --is another about to be exposed? *I'm only hoping Curtis will be 'exposed' .giggle
Breakfast with your Bratty Son. What a way to start the day! Morgan was irritable and rude and well--MORGAN. Carly was a mother hen but hell, he'd just been in the psyche ward! In the middle of it all, Ava came in to talk to Kiki.
Pleading for her forgiveness. Sure Ava is a wench and slept with her daughter's boyfriend. But boy, Maura can sell her as a desperate hurting mother. She did such a great job in this scene. She's amazing. Now, personally? Kiki could leave and I wouldn't notice. But Ava? She's a prize. One second she's having sex on a box of guns and the next, trying to get her fam back. That's hootzbah.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Oh yeah, Brooklyn brought it and brought the house down. She was amazing.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Carly finds out Liz knew Jason was Jason for months. She was "relieved" because she just knew it. KNEW It all along. Then Sonny and she plotted to get "their Jason back". You know, like a Husky puppy that went missing.
PROP OF THE WEEK: THE PILL! The bipolar pill that Morgan hid and the busboy threw out. Morgan swore we was taking his meds. By the way, Darby called him for a booty call and he went. Sans this little nugget. What could possibly go wrong? Hopefully she doesn't wind up murdered and Morgan was the last one to see her. (I saw that on SVU once!)
In the end, I found the "Lie Reveal" so dragged out that I was in a bad mood by the time it all hit the fan. The scenes were good, although Becky out-acted Billy by a mile. Jason Thompson leaving is such a waste. Geeessssssh. It's weird Johnny's back just to skulk around and "help Lulu" avenge the affair but I'll take it. The Morgan-Kiki-Ava thing was kind of thrown into the mix.
Giant kudos to Becky, Kelly, Jason and little Brook. It was amazing. All the more sad to know he's leaving. WAH!! I have no idea if Emma come back to visit with Grandma? I hope they don't "blow up" Robin and Patrick like they did Anna and Robert years ago. I mean, I can't see this kid go through any MORE stuff! LOL
I am being optimistic in the Gala thing and that GH may perhaps take a lighter turn in 2016? Not sure with the whole mob-gun thing going on. Why oh why isn't Paul just into corporate stuff? Jules and Ava could have gone legit and done some raiding. Ava would be amazing as a CEO of Doom. Sonny could keep doing his stupid "COFFEE" importing but on the low-key. Where's RIC? He should be front/center in the mix. Why do they bring on characters (Laura) and have them in the background? WHY!?
I'll leave you with this:
Because I'm hoping that this is the end. THE END. of it all. Bye. Bye year of my life. Bye frustration. BYE. I'm putting you into the Fluke Box I keep for never-ending stories.
I'm going to be busy working on the WUB AWARDS OF 2015. You know I'll need some medication for that endevour. Send tequila, any Xanax and cake you may have laying around to me. It was quite the damn year, wasn't it?
