|SMELL THE ROSES!|
Just when I am ready to give the hell up on GH, they have a show like Friday and I'm all fangirling again.
WHAT THE HELL!!? Of course, I will crab about the mobular bits that were inserted to ruin my joy but other wise, I shall be happy.
The first part of the week is a boring blur so this Surgery will be interesting!
Breakfast? Naw, brunch. Help yourself to your fave brunch item? What's yours? I like champagne (forget the OJ in there) and Eggs Benedict. :) yum.
Mon and Tuesday gave me the hives. By Wednesday I was ready to bail and I did Thursday and Friday. When I watched Friday's show I loved it--and yep, it was written by my fave Scott Sickles. Great show all around. The mob stuff didn't even make me too angry.
So, I'm going to go through the first four days rather quickly.
Maxie and Nathan trap Lulu and Dante who take a magazine therapy-quiz and talk about their relationship. While the dialog was good, I feel like I've heard this all 600 times before!! Good God, since Dante did the first deed with Valerie and Lulu found out, it's been a circular motion with these two. Same stuff, again and again. Whatever.
Kiki found Morgan trying to get it on with Darby. He explains he's basically taking "one for the team" to see if he CAN have sex. Editing was bizarre here and they jumped from one day into the next after ending all the other stories. TJ and Molly weren't even shown. BUT! We have to hear endless stuff about Morgan's peen. UGH.
Tracy's still having her episodes and finally grabs her head and goes "What's happening to me"?? My hope is that we find out in a somewhat timely fashion and that it's a glorious story line for Jane.
Dr. Griff doesn't fall for Sonny's song and dance and dimples. Nope..he wants to quit his case because he's a lying lair that lies. He can't tell Carly because of confidentiality.
So, do we believe Paul? Is he all "undercover" and is the Sloane stuff about Susan true? If it is, they have a hell of a nerve asking us to forget seeing Paul shoot Sonny, making Ava basically have sex with him and a million other little things that we've seen over the course of his being on the show. I wondered when Paul was all "I'm not a bad guy" to Tracy if it was going this way. If it is true, GH is yet again back peddling on past events in order to switch a character up. It works if it's done well and you look back and go "OMG, yes, that could be". When you look back and say "Hey, that's in no way the way that happened", you have a problem!
The ONE way it would work is if Sonny was also in on it the entire time. And the doctors. Fake shooting, fake out everything and he and Paul were working together ala Redford and Newman. That could be glorious. But, you know GH. so...
I think he is telling the truth because of the Dept of Justice stuff he told Anna. God help us with this. LOL. Could be totally messy.
Last February it was Spencer at Shirner's Hospital and this year Jake is going! Jake will be in Philly where they have the orthopedic care. Liz and Franco got closer in a friend kinda way. Roger and Becky are selling it too. The way Franco looked at Liz when she was with her kids? Magic.
Davis Girl FUN!! They are so awesome. And I'm so glad Lexi is back. Molly and Krissy look so much like sisters, no? The getting ready for the wedding was fabulous. Loved the gifts. Loved the "sex" discussion. "I'm not-- not proud..." . She thought Kristina was pregnant. She'll tell her "after the wedding" what's going on. Yeah. Sure.
Diane was so fun. She lights up the show. "How dare you beat me to the altar, you bitch"!! LOVED. Thank you for having CH back on the show for this day. We needed it, and it could have easily been over looked. Glad she could make it.
Lucas is such a uniting character. He's with Kiki and I don't hate her. I love him with Brad (who was actually going to the wedding). His talk with Julian. So good.
"I fired you for doing a girl on the job". Yes, I did like the Morgan Sonny conflict. Very parental/kid. BC is great at being a piss-ant too. Morgan is losing everything because he refuses to take his medicine because of the side effects. Double-edged sword no? I'm going to enjoy watching his implosion. Morgan is a mini-Sonny from the old days. I so wish they'd have Morgan run a strip club like Sonny used to. OMG can you imagine!!!? Carly with that? SONNY with that?? ahahhaa. Darby can be his first dancer.
Really liked the scene where Sonny was like "GO, leave...figure it out on your own"!! BYE. This will also set up Sonny guilt about Morgan going off half-cocked and the mobular stuff.
UGH.... WHY. WHY? I know why. So Dante can save her and they can figure out they really wub each other deep down, right? They should have had Dante held captive and Lulu save him. Now that may have been interesting.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: "You finally did it...you had Sex"!! AHHH! Right in the middle of the present opening!!
PROP OF THE WEEK: "Something Blue"..."you used to tie my hair with these when I was little!! aww. the FEELS ON THIS!
FACE OF THE WEEK: When Lucas gave Jules the letter for after the wedding. The one he wrote when he was a teen and trying to figure things out. AHH!!!
Like I said, thank you for Friday's show because if not, it would have been a waste of a week, imo.
Ok, the "STING" angle would have been interesting but- YOU HAVE TO plan it out and write it very detailed and perfectly so it all fits. you can't just make sheeze up as you go. I'm telling you, that story could have really been a good one. *sigh*. I like the angle that Paul is really with the Feds but..so little SO LATE. He's done way too many things that don't fit into that scenario. If it was planned, the whole story could have been woven and fit like a puzzle. I think that may be soaps biggest downfall lately. There are so many great stories we watch now that when they even try to pull off something that's half-conceived or worse, NOT mapped out at all it's a giant fail. Can you imagine if the Sonny shooting was faked, and everyone from Patrick to Dante and then Ava were in on it? BOOM. Oh well.
In my dreams.
The wedding prep was everything I wanted and more. Thank you! GH is so "big event"...boring .."Big Event" boring.... We've all lived through it before. We'll do it again!! Until then, I'll be happy.
I am looking forward to Helena's Will and Tracy's story. Please let these happen soon and with greatness.
