|LET THE GALA BEGIN!|
Well, it was an unexpected 4 day week! Thanks to the POTUS Friday's show is moved to Monday and instead of a rerun on Christmas Eve Day, we'll have a new show. Not sure how many of us can actually watch it though!!
The Nutcracker Gala is starting so let's have some sugar plums!
I hate Valerie and I want her gone!
So...wait...you hate her and want her gone. Want me to kill her? I mean, I'm a fugitive from justice and all but I can still pull off a pretty good death if I need to..
GOD! DUH.. Hmm..well.. um, no. Geesh, Johnny, I don't want her killed..but just..gone. You know, away. Far. Vamoos.
And so Johnny made Valerie's car stop on Route 31, where no other cars ever go. She was on her way to the gun range. They faked us out a bit by making us think he planted a bomb but nah, it was just a GPS. I've never seen a GPS tracker with so many wires but---hey. I think the plan is to get her in trouble with the Academy and get her kicked out.
Um, Tracy, your taste in men kinda Sucks.
Shut up, Monica!
Tracy got Paul to give the keynote speech at the Gala and they snogged in the park a bit. She is acting all smitten and in love (some of us are hoping she's faking it and playing him). He meanwhile, is sexting up Ava on the side.
Like the angry cat, I shall be back! (said in Puss N'Boots voice)
Paul paid off Carlos to "disappear". Now think about it. Paul would have shot him in an instant, right? Why let him go? Carlos is dead--and threatening you. You just say "Bye"!? He's also intent on getting that baby. (the one Paul is all concerned about all of a sudden). I mean, Paul shot Sloane, why doesn't he just kill Carlos?
I know, a soap. A soap.
Anna, we've got a situation here. After years of being in the dark, I finally got the idea Robin might be held captive! I'm in Paris and Emma saw a Cassadine necklace and I think she's really in a lab on Cassadine Island! Meet me there, stat!!
So, it's finally time to wrap this story up I guess. Jason Thompson is leaving for YR and his exit story will finally get Robin out of the lab. You know..The OTHER Lab. Not Critchen-Crighten-Clark-Ramma-Lamma Ding Dong, it's the "Immortality Lab" where Jerry Jacks is busy trying to live forever!
So you see, God.. I need that formula so I can continue to live the high-life in the shadows and continue being a crime-lord. Amen. Oh and PS please I want a James Bond car for Christmas.
Jerry is intent on killing Robin because after years of working on it, she's close and may have an idea to transfer brain information digitally to a new corpse (just go with it, it's a soap, ya know?) But no--he has to kill her NOW. Because..well, it's a soap! He finds out that Patrick is on the island and lets her call to say goodbye. He isn't a total monster people!!
Don't look so surprised Patrick, we've always kept in touch....off screen!
Robert is here to save his Robin. Along with Anna they go hunting for her in the halls of Cassa-Lab with guns drawn. (you think they can turn them in for toys later at the Gala?!). Meanwhile,
Robin is going to be killed by bad-actor guard guy (really? In all of LA you pick this guy??!) because Jerry has to 'stay behind to clean up the lab". Robin tries to gain sympathy from him by talking about Opera. (Because his name is an opera character, duh!!). They leave. He says he's going to Kill Her (in the same robotic voice as he'd order a sandwich). Later, Robert, Patrick and Anna all burst into the lab to save her and see only Jerry. Bummer.
Oh, you think you're so high and mighty..well, you're SHORT! SHORT I TELL YOU!!
Liz and Carly 'face off" (as they call it in soap-land). Carly yells at Liz...Liz snipes back. Carly comes off as the giant hypocrite she is. "How can you keep a man from his children"?? Well, Gee Carly, she probably learned it from you. By the way, Jason is basically Carly's property so, you know, hands off. Liz certainly deserves to be scolded but Carly has such a past, it was pretty laughable to hear her go on and on. I also would have given my right arm to have the writers put in something from Liz like "Go talk to AJ about all this Carly, I have patients that need saving, you bitch"!
Franco is all of a sudden Liz' BFF because they are both the town pariah .. (his word which he used 800 times). He over heard all of the Carly-Liz yelling in his art therapy room and had a listening ear for 'poor Liz'. He convinces her to go to the Gala. Later, she does try to leave but Dr. O tells her it's mandatory for staff to be there. Not sure who's running the hospital but you know, a soap. How do you feel about this friendship? I love Roger so whatever he does is ok with me. LOL. Gets him more involved with the whole situation, right?
I TOOK THEM, I TOOK ALL OF THEM! At one TIME! Leave me the hell alone!!
Oh Morgan. Mad, Mad, Angry Morgan. Sleeping on Darby's "couch". Maybe it's because I have a kid in their early 20's but I so got this scene. Carly is totally hovering and being on his ass but he was just in the damn psyche ward after waving a gun at some unknown cabin he broke into. Call me crazy but that kid does need some monitoring!! Liked how Sonny tried to calm Carly down and tell her to back off. Good scene and believable. We know Morgan isn't taking his meds like he should so another break-down is coming.
Well, she's BIG Michael, but not that big...look at this photo of Kate Gossling at the same point in her pregnancy!
Michael is starting to figure things out. He has to you see, because instead of writing this as a nice new Q baby entering the world they had to F it up with a Zombie-Carlos WTD story. UGH. We all know TC is taking time off after having her real baby. I'm sure you could have written it into the story somehow without involving a walking dead man. But whateverrr. And it's not like Michael wouldn't understand her having a transgression, they weren't even that serious at the time! But..again, whateverrr
Laura is so stuck in "Mom Mode" lately. Being all sage to Nikolas and Lulu. She's regulated to morality talks lately. I was glad she was at least on, but Genie should have more of a story than this.
I almost forgot to mention the Davis Girl's reunion! Yep-- Krissy is home! She did something at college though--something bad and she deleted email to Alexis about it. I'm hoping they are kicking her out so she can stay in PC? Maybe show Molly and she more? Please?
Um, wait..turn around... WHO DID THAT TO your hair? I will kill them!!
"Oh little Star of Georgie-Land how still we see thee light"....
The Gala began and Maxie and Dillon slipped away to talk about Georgie's death in the park. Oh poor Georgie. Her death was the turning point in GH's Guza killing off the families spree. Ugh. Such a mistake.
OMG, Um, Carly have you seen the back of your hair!!??
Carly convinces Jason to attend the ball. She gives him a pumpkin and turns it into..oh wait, different story! Anyway, he goes to the Gala only to run into...
Liz and Sam! Sam had to come to give her mom the check she forgot. Because you know, she had to have it that night or it doesn't count. Anyway, the 3 of them run into each other and...and.?? Fireworks? Chaos? Snark? ANYTHING?
Literally nothing. They walk away.
Ok then, thanks for that.
** I am not doing any of the RED-CARPET dresses yet-- I'm going to wait until next week. The show was so interrupted that it will just be easier to do it then. On Friday there was 6 minutes of show and the 'step-repeat" had just begun. So, we can look forward to that whenever I get the time to do it in between holiday festivities.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: The ugly sweater. I loved when Olivia came in with her matching family sweaters and plopped down to interrupt the Julexis lunch. Lisa and Nancy clearly were having a blast and I also liked how they had Julian just go.."um, I gotta go" and run! It was fun and I'm liking the dynamic that is being set up with these 3.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Yep, giving it up for the Daddy Sweater with the reindeer! Great table nosh too-- all ribs and beer!
FACE OF THE WEEK: The face after listening to Carly go on and on and on... Liz does it. Jason does it..all of Carly's kids do it. Today was Sonny's turn. Bring on the Tylenol!
THE TALE OF TWO HOTEL ROOMS: Oh My Gosh. LOL. Ok, first of all, the Paris suite is totally Carly's house. The molding is the exact same thing. Note the frilly ice-blue Parisian Pillows? Well, switch them out for a nice Greek Folk Art and Voila! We are transported to the Feta Island in an instant!! You know me and my props. I was slightly disappointed there were no baguettes in "France" but what are you going to do? Maybe Felicia took Emma out for macaroons when she arrived to babysit her.
The next two weeks will be interesting blog-wise for me. We of course have the Christmas holiday and I'm in and out. Next week I should be around for most shows. The next week we are having company from England so that may be really spotty.
I will be publishing the 2015 WUB AWARDS soon, so look for those as well! Have a great pre-Christmas few days.
