Sunday Surgery: All Hail The Queen



The Week of Ava...
Well, I had a break and a vacation and here I am....back again! This will probably not be the usual long, drawn out blog that I usually do because who's got time for that! Right? It's September!! Where has the time gone? You all know it's my time of year to go back to work (Sept 7th) with the kiddies. I miss doing my therapy thing believe it or not!! 

Ok, get ready because...I enjoyed the show this week. For the most part, stories are coming together and there were a lot of things I was happy about.  The cast is still way too huge-amoungous but maybe my break and trip to Hollywood did me good? 

So, let's have some comfort food today and grab some coffee-cake with all the trimmings! Ava had the Best Week Ever so she gets the first bite! 




As bizarre as the whole Paul is the Killer mess is, Ava blackmailing him WAS perfect. SO Ava. So Soapy--so on-point. Paul's face when he realized she had the vials? Priceless!! Ava was back to being bad-ass.  Not only that, she ratted Liz out to Hayden about the diamonds, setting into motion The whole "Hayden tried to kill Elizabeth" scenario.  She's back--and SHE'S NOT crying about Kiki or Avery. Nope. Keep it that way. 



Liz' stair fall was epic. Done really well. Almost prime-time TV worthy. They just needed a bit of under-current music going. The tight space, the extras being used-and Hayden's face at the top of the stairs with Paul's behind her. The power outage and subsequent scenes were a bit low budget but I'm giving them that. The lead-up and Hayden's confession to Finn worked perfectly AND then!! They followed up THE NEXT DAY!! At the coffee shop, saying good-bye to each other, Finn and she kiss. This is also setting up the next thing I'm looking forward to: Finn vs Franco in the "Liz/Hayden" mess. You know Liz' is hurt worse than she is saying and will need something from her sister Hayden. 



Oh, Alexis, you are going down that rabbit hole, aren't you? You are hearing people that are still ALIVE!! 




Liked Felicia and Maxie together, going over her 'wish board" for her wedding. While I'm sick of the whole Naxie/Claudette/Griffin thing, I did enjoy this. AND-- then we got some surprise Nina and Felicia scenes as well! Wow. 



This brings us to...Claudette. Lordy. She's delicious (I do love her) but...man, I have had it with this story and it's the weak link for me. The whole Nate/Maxie/Griff/Claud shooting stuff. It's like a big bubble hanging out there that I just don't want to hear about. SO there. Neener.  




I don't care about the Amish either.  Joe is ok, but without the Carlos accent? Eh. 



This beeatch is going to be a handful, no? I like the story (very throw-back) and wish there was less Claudette junk going on and more of this. I hope it plays out really well. Bobbie is going to watch Avery, btw--there has to be something coming down the pike with that. I can see ol' Nellie sabotaging Bobbie somehow, making everyone think she's too old to take care of Avery and then swooping in. Carly being done in by a "younger-Carly-type"? Might be delicious to watch!! 



JaSam Wedding:  For the JaSam fans, it was a feast for the eyes. So many great photos of everyone. They had a "photog" on set and the results were great.  That's my fave one up there. Kelly looks so pretty. I also enjoyed the Davis girls of course--although come on--Alexis could have been in a better dress! LOL! 



I guess it's good that Monica didn't show up, right? Her going to Sonny's house would have pushed me over the edge. It was a small wedding--did you like it? I prefer a more grand event but they don't seem to do those much anymore. Dillon could have taken pics, Laura could have brought Spencer. Oh well. 




SCENE(S) OF THE WEEK:  This was brilliant. The person that put these 2 together needs a raise. Wow. NLG and Jane are so great alone--and together? Wowza. Loved that Tracy knew what it was like to have a dirt bag of a husband. They have such history together---Ned, the whole Q thing. MORE PLEASE!! 



PROP OF THE WEEK: Maxie's old style "Pintrest Board" with a big ol' pic of Nate right there! 



FACE OF THE CENTURY~! LOL..Hammy Finn watching Hayden slug Liz... oh so awesome

Ok, a couple of things this week. How awesome would it have been to have had Felix around the hospital during the whole "lights out crisis"? He could have added some fun to the whole thing. Good to see Monica, but...?  The entire Paul reveal is just crazy. Now, like I said, if Cassadines are holding Susan --maybe she has Finn's disease too? And the only way to keep her alive is to kill people for their organs? Why would he kill old people tho? Hmmm. Wait and see I suppose. Buying Paul as a straight up weird-o serial killer is going to be tough to swallow unless it's a brilliant reason. 

Did you enjoy the week? I know I left out bits. Did you hear Franco say your " early morning discharge" and crack up!!? HAHAHA. That's RH for you!  ( I almost named the blog that this week but decided it was way too easy!!_ 

No show Monday, it's a repeat I believe. I start work next week so things may be spotty. Then I have company coming for a week from Australia-- and I'll be a bit busy!! But you know I'll try to jump in now and again.  Spoilers are updated, so hit the link in the pages above. 

Thanks for reading.

As always, Thx to @SourceJenn and @FyeahGH for screen cappies !

Oh, I did not think I would be first today, but it looks like I am!! Thanks Karen for your upbeat SS!! I also greatly enjoyed this week, thought it was VERY exciting!! Can't wait to see more!!

AntJoan--WHO ARE WE? lol!!

Pat said...

Silly, but I wish Jason had stayed in his tuxedo for the ceremony, and I wish that Monica had attended, Sonny's house or not. I'm sad Paul is the serial killer. I like the actor and the character, and there is no coming back from that.

CareyN said...

Don't forget, Ava also nailed Nina good about the baby buying thing and threw Avery's kidnapping in her face. That was a great scene. So soapy!

Why weren't Morgan and Lucas/Brad at the wedding?

CapeMcMoose said...

I love reading SS - even though I have tuned out of #GH. Sadly. I have come to the realization that I just don't like Frank's Hospital. The actors, characters, writing - I struggle with it all. Ironically though- for the same reasons many love the show. Are the same reasons why I struggle....

I am glad the show is making others happy. :)

LSV422 said...

Excellent SS! I am disappointed and kind of amazed at Paul being the SK. I like the actor and the character has deep roots. Ava was just delicious last week-so true to character. Franco is still too creepy and not all there mentally for me to enjoy. Love Finn and he and Hayden are working. Didn't care much for the wedding stuff especially since the real Jason would have been really uncomfortable. Everyone looked great though.

Between Finns face after the slap, the killer reveal and Francos early morning discharge I loved this week!
😊❤😊❤😊❤😊❤

Michelle Latta said...

While he's easy on the eyes, I'm only a tad disappointed, but because we all were truly shocked I'm thrilled. LOL! If that made sense. GH is so predictable and I had my jaw fall to the floor. Haha!

Michelle Latta said...

Ava acted like her sheet don't stink. They are both just as bad.

Michelle Latta said...

Haha Frank's Hospital;)

Karen,
Laura left town to take Spencer to boarding school. I think Genie's on vacation.

Yes soapy goodness! Karen you didn't even mention the porno red lights that they had! ROFL!


"Oh, Alexis, you are going down that rabbit hole, aren't you? You are hearing people that are still ALIVE!!"

HAHAHAHHAA! Instead of I see dead people, it's I see alive people! :)

"This beeatch is going to be a handful, no?"

Hahaha yes!! :)

"I like the story (very throw-back)"

Me too! :) And yes I agree very throw back.

"I can see ol' Nellie sabotaging Bobbie somehow, making everyone think she's too old to take care of Avery and then swooping in. Carly being done in by a "younger-Carly-type"? Might be delicious to watch!!"

The HUGE fan of Richard Burgi that I am, I've already ranted about this a couple times this week already, which is probably more than enough to subject everyone to. :) The last couple of days though, the more I think about it, he HAS to be doing this for Susan, or one of his other kids. When I remembered the conversation he had with Tracy a few days ago over lunch, waiting for Dillon, so I went back and watched it again, one line stuck out at me. His statement to her, of how he would do ANYTHING at all, for his kids. Before I watched that again, I wasn't sure at all what to think. (Especially by the fact that Jelly said right out in interviews that this storyline was not plotted out in any way whatsoever at all, from it's inception.) Everything is so scattered all over, with the writing. But, the way he said that, and the way he handled Ava this week, has me thinking now, that that pretty much has to be the reason. Taking into account his history, and what not.

WOOOHOOOO!!! She has been VERY sorely missed!! Let's hope she decides to stay awhile!!

Loved having Elizabeth on all week! Very annoyed that Jason did not bother to call back and check on Liz. I wonder what will happen when he finds out Jake's mom has been hurt and he didn't bother to pick up the phone. I know they're separated but the REAL Jason would still have cared.

Thank you LSV422 For calling him the real Jason because that's just the way I feel about Steve Burton. It is like this guy is fake Jason. I'm a huge liaison fan but I'm not even the slightest bit upset about the wedding because I don't even want Elizabeth with this fake Jason. I truly feel like if real Jason we're here then we would've had a love triangle again. Elizabeth would've then turned out to be the one pregnant way back when they were together, and the dilemma would be what to do with Sam. Now it's just boring watching paint and wall wait for baby trim.

I am also sadly afraid that because they have sent Spencer to boarding school, pending Tyler Christopher's return to screen that when he does return Spencer will be aged. I hate thinking of anybody else playing the role of Spencer and I wish they would just let the kids grow up naturally. If they do age Spencer that rules out a return of ever seeing little Brooklyn playing Emma again. Maybe it's me but I love this little pint-size group and wanted to watch them grow up as we did with Kimbery McCullough/Robin

ok despite people who loved her on OLTL I cannot stand the role of Claudette! I wish she Griffin would reunite and leave forever. There is something about him that is just prissy. I don't think he plays his part well at all – maybe I just hate the character -which I do.

Am I the only one who still wants to see Maxie back with Spinelli? Anyone else still want Jason to work for Sonny and be bad ass like he used to be? This new domestic Jason isn't, won't, and ain't never gonna be the real Jason – the Jason who's finest scene was when he walked into that church with Faith Roscoe shooting with both pistols and tore it up! Yeah that's the sexy hot Jason in the black leather jacket I will always remember as the real Jason! He is also the Jason that swooped in a million times to save his Elizabeth. And that Jason would be with her right now.

Michelle Latta said...

Swooping in to save Liz, yes. But being Stone Cold again, no.

Haha yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

kdmask said...

yes, i KNOW Laura and Spence left 'for boarding school' but if they were written into the wedding they wouldn't have until after.
Yes, Genie's on vacation..for quite awhile.

LSV422 said...

I really hate the Claudette character and Nathan is so boring that further delving into his past seemed so unnecessary to me. He even makes the vivacious Maxie seem blah. I am really hoping Paul is either brainwashed or being blackmailed into doing these killings but the victims seemingly have no connection to anyone. And not only has BM's Jason been mellowed into mush, he basically has no storyline beyond the wedding, doesn't work or do anything. I don't really want to see him killing people for Sonny again but he might as well be the Jason Quartermaine pre-brain damage, and if that's the case, send him back to medical school and have him become a doctor if he really isn't the authentic Jason Morgan. He needs some purpose other than keeping Sam's bed warm.
