Sunday Surgery: Wonder Waffles



CARBS! My favorite! 

Another attempt to entertain you on the blog when I've only watched 2 shows this week!! I think I got the gist of what happened. I think--one never knows with GH! 


I'm going to have some waffles. Jax made them for me! 




On a side note-- did SBu totally steal Jason's jacket from GH wardrobe or what? 

Ok, here we go!! This week centered on a rapist,  dying people (probably not), blackmail, pain, sorrow, angst....yada yada. 



Charlotte, even though your mother told you Policeman Nathan is your Daddy..then said I was your Daddy, turns out you knew all along that Mr. Cassadine was your Daddy! Why didn't you say anything? 

Um.... um... wait, you're not my Daddy? 


**Ok so this story is just the weirdest and most incomplete set up in the world.  WTF? If this kid knew she had a Dad, why didn't she say: MOM... where's my real Dad or something? ANYTHING? Well, the judge gave the kid to Valentin, who didn't "exist" prior to like 5 years ago or something. Anna's all upset. Griffin is all upset. Obviously Nathan has just said the hell with it.  Charlotte will now be going to Wyndemere to stroll around the tunnels like Spencer usually did.  Oh, Valentin hinted that Claudette could be dead-- but other than that high note, this story is a clunker. 



Franco went to kill Tom. Tom is the guy that raped Elizabeth way back when. Why is he around? I don't know, I guess to show that rapists can be reformed? Or ...not reformed? Or apologize? Or not apologize? What is this ?? It's also apparent that it is to drive Franco-Sam scenes. I'm glad Sam said what she said to Franco. That was an honest response. She owes him nothing. Having to sit through Franco trying to strangle Tom with the fire poker? Made me roll my eyes back into my head. Ugh..can't GH go ONE MINUTE without violence? 
By the way, Thanks FRANCO because .. until now he seemed to be minding his own biz, now he's all up looking for Liz. Great job.

'

Alexis met Jax at a bar and even though she drove with him, she stayed to drink. Tom came by... cut to her waking up and the shower on. Psyche out! Tom wasn't there. So... whatever. I don't care. 



Oh and thanks to Jade on twitter for digging these up. Alexis kinda knows Tom from helping Liz and Emily with putting him away but...you know GH. Probably been too long for her to remember him.

I DO care that Jax was going to tell Alexis the 'truth' about the whole kidney thing...and says that Nell told him her parents sold her kidney when she was a kid. Then? Well then...Jax just stopped. Because, you know GH. :boilsover: 




I didn't watch this day--not sure what she's up to. I DID watch the day that she and Michael played chess.I swear it's 1979 all over again. Backgammon? Did she say Backgammon? Um, ok. We get the dance she's doing with Michael. :eyeroll: I just hope Bobbie kills her soon and stuffs her into the freezer in the basement.




Best part of the week? Scotty and Lucy with the pills and the Ava blackmail. Because--Scotty and Lucy. Kin Shriner is giving me life. 



CarJax:  Such a great couple. LW and IR are very good together. Always have been. We did have to watch the Carly-Jax-Sonny-Brenda square forever but they did endure in my mind. I hope they keep him. Why? There's no real yang to Sonny anymore. He used to have Jax...or Taggart...even Luke for awhile who were the balance. Now that everyone fawns all over him, this feels right. Plus, he made waffles and Joss compared him to Mr. Darcy. 


So at the end of the show Friday, Julian is talking to someone on the phone saying he's done "what they've asked for months" (I smell a redemption attempt coming) and Sam/Jason find out a guy named Oscar Jessups was behind the bomb. Jessups worked for the Jeromes --but get this--died. So, someone is using his MO.

MY SPECULATION:  Could it be Olivia Jerome? Same initials..and the shirt at the end of the show Friday looked like a lady would wear it.  Just an idea. She knew a ton of people on canvas. Valentin told Anna to "open her eyes" ---so we'll see. 




Oh, and Hayden is still "ill" on "death's door" and the scenes remind me 100% of Silas/Ava in NYC with the cancer.




LOOK OF THE WEEK: Post-Funeral Ava. Gotta love her. I would killed to have seen her in the Denise wig tho-- ahahaa. 




BITCH OF THE WEEK:  (this might be long). OH SONNY....Sonny ...Sonny... he 'confesses' to ordering the hit. BUT WAIT! He did call it off in time!! ERGO it was someone else that did this. So we watch all week as he cries in jail..not caring about that fact, still wallowing, still blaming himself. Having nightmares. 



Oh..but...wait, what's that? Carly's starting to ask him not to retaliate... that look comes into Sonny's eyes again... "If I didn't kill Morgan someone ELSE DID"!
Ut Oh. You guessed it. He's going to let Diane get him off and then SEEK JUSTICE!!!!!!!! JUSTICE I SAY!!!!!

ERGO--Back to square one. Of my life--that is GH. Can Sonny at the very least go on vacation for a month? Just go to the island and plot? Just go. 




SCENE OF THE WEEK:  I really enjoyed the acting and dialog in this. The exchange didn't feel forced and Franco took the right tone of apologizing. Not really believing he was going to do it and how difficult it was for him. Sam's refusal to accept and her words fitted the situation perfectly. Franco doesn't need to be forgiven by her, and she shouldn't do it.  



PROP OF THE WEEK: I'll always give it up for the mace. Which I think is illegal in NY.  Maybe it was pepper spray? 

Oh, another thing? Alexis was going to call Uber. We don't have Uber here. Picky but true. 

IF you are all wondering my obsession with the Waffles--it goes back to about 1996 on AOL. We used to have folders on there, remember/?? You'd go in and write about a subject? There were L&L folders, Cassadine folders, Jax/Brenda...Brenda/Sonny? It would get er..heated. LOL Anyway, a group of us started Waffleland which was a place that people who didn't CARE about either couple could go and not hear all the noise. It was a riot. A whole "town" . So when I saw waffles, I went kind nostalgic on it all!

Cool, I get to be first. Don't care if Sonny called off the hit. He is in the mob, that means his family is in the cross-hairs. If he wants to protect his family – get out of the mob. That would be a story I would like to see. I’m tired of Sonny never facing the consequences of his lifestyle.

I am interested in how Valentin and Anna are connected. Did she meet him during her years of amnesia, her years as a double-agent, or somewhere else. Love their scenes together.

I was on another board and someone was speculating that "Oscar Jessups" was in fact our girl Helena. Well, Julian did terrorize Natasha - with the dagger. I would buy a faked death just to have Constance Towers back on our screens

** Nah, I can't see that happening. For one, Julian maintains that he still loves her, so in that way I can't see him doing her bidding, not to mention the fact that Helena really could care less about her. It also just isn't Helena's style to do something like that. I really can't see her going through all this just to screw with her like that. She just wouldn't "stoop so low."

Thanks for the SS Karen. I'm still trying to catch up on this weeks show. On the Alexis episode now. I'm sorry but I find it far fetched that Jax would leave Alexis at the bar alone. Truly wish these writers understood these characters.

Michael with Nell is ridiculous. He's over Sabrina too quickly.

I read that Griffin is leaving the show. Before they hire 6 new people and 6 new stupid SLs can they please bring Tyler Christopher back???

Have a great week everyone. And Happy Thanksgiving!!! 🦃

Oh what a coincidence! Jax made them for me too! :)

"On a side note-- did SBu totally steal Jason's jacket from GH wardrobe or what?"

ROFL! Yeah he did! :) But wait leave poor Dylan alone! He is hurting. :(

"Charlotte, even though your mother told you Policeman Nathan is your Daddy..then said I was your Daddy, turns out you knew all along that Mr. Cassadine was your Daddy! Why didn't you say anything?"

She isn't going to be screwed up afterall! YAY! :)

"Franco went to kill Tom. Tom is the guy that raped Elizabeth way back when. Why is he around? I don't know, I guess to show that rapists can be reformed? Or ...not reformed? Or apologize? Or not apologize?"

I dunno.. I don't think he is reformed.. We shall see. :)


"Oh and thanks to Jade on twitter for digging these up. Alexis kinda knows Tom from helping Liz and Emily with putting him away but...you know GH. Probably been too long for her to remember him."

OH! I forgot about that!!!! Well, maybe Alexis was just too drunk to remember him. :)

"I just hope Bobbie kills her soon and stuffs her into the freezer in the basement."

HAHAHAHAHHA! That would be interesting.


"Best part of the week? Scotty and Lucy with the pills and the Ava blackmail. Because--Scotty and Lucy. Kin Shriner is giving me life."

Yeah my Lotty are all sparkly. :)

"MY SPECULATION: Could it be Olivia Jerome? Same initials..and the shirt at the end of the show Friday looked like a lady would wear it. Just an idea. She knew a ton of people on canvas. Valentin told Anna to "open her eyes" ---so we'll see."

OH! Good theory!!!! :)

"Oh, and Hayden is still "ill" on "death's door" and the scenes remind me 100% of Silas/Ava in NYC with the cancer."

ROFL! But we have an addition! GuGu the lizard. :) Who is so worried about RayRay!

A story about Tom's return (18 years later!!) is exactly why soaps are special and unlike any other medium. And you don't get why they'd tell it??

Ruthie said...

Ooohhh ooohhh. Just got it ! Olivia Jerome had a sex change and now she is Valentin! Makes as much sense as anything else lately.

I love, love, love Jax and wish he would stay. I'd give every cent I have (not much, but) for Sonny to go away to the island for at least a month. AND take Paint and Wall with him for company, they could call it a Mumblers Convention.

** Yeah, that made absolutely no sense. Jax has never been the type to do something like that with her, especially.

Michael with Nell is ridiculous. He's over Sabrina too quickly.

** Unless Bobbie or Jax is on when she is. I'm at the point where I generally just FF through scenes with Nelle in them.

I read that Griffin is leaving the show. Before they hire 6 new people and 6 new stupid SLs can they please bring Tyler Christopher back???

** I'm curious as to where/when you read that he's leaving. Even just a few weeks back, I'd read him saying he wasn't going anywhere, when he was asked about it, since he's done a few guest spots on primetime stuff.

"Franco went to kill Tom. Tom is the guy that raped Elizabeth way back when. Why is he around? I don't know, I guess to show that rapists can be reformed? Or ...not reformed? Or apologize? Or not apologize?"

** To me it looked like he went there to intimidate Tom, and scare the crap out of him, but not to kill him. That seemed pretty clear, I thought.

I dunno.. I don't think he is reformed.. We shall see. :)

** He definitely didn't look like it to me. Really, he looked more like a dead man walking, than anything else. I will be VERY surprised if he doesn't end up in a body bag, in the next few weeks. Seeing as it looks a LOT like they're setting up for a `Who killed him?' storyline.

"Oh and thanks to Jade on twitter for digging these up. Alexis kinda knows Tom from helping Liz and Emily with putting him away but...you know GH. Probably been too long for her to remember him."

OH! I forgot about that!!!! Well, maybe Alexis was just too drunk to remember him. :)

** I did too. Most likely, that's why Alexis also did. That having been said, it was still a VERY bizarre thing to do/see.

"MY SPECULATION: Could it be Olivia Jerome? Same initials..and the shirt at the end of the show Friday looked like a lady would wear it. Just an idea. She knew a ton of people on canvas. Valentin told Anna to "open her eyes" ---so we'll see."

OH! Good theory!!!! :)

** That's an interesting theory. Having just gone back and watched the end of the episode agaub, I'm not entirely sure. Even though, all we see is someone's arm in what looks to be red satin by a phone. That doesn't necessarily mean whoever it is, is a woman. With the fabric type/color and the initials, I can definitely understand why you're going there. The one problem with that though; I just can't see Julian being forced/controlled by her. That NEVER would have happened back then. Especially since he did "kill her". The only reason I put that in quotes, is if it does turn out that's who it is, I have no idea as to how she would have gained that hold over him. There's also one other reason why I can't see it happening: usually when when peoplr have had ideas and theories of what's going on with stuff since Jelly took over HW duties, the more in depth/complex and logically fitting in with the show's history that the theories are, the less likely they seem to be how things end up turning out. I'm not saying it CAN'T happen that way, it's just more likely things actually don't turn out to be that way, since they took over writing. Which is one thing I REALLY miss about RC, he knew GH history. Even little call backs to stuff here and there, that din't really have much effect on whatever was going on, but if one has been a long time viewer, they could really appreciate that sort of thing, even if it was small.

I haven't seen anywhere that the actor who plays Griffin is leaving, but it seems lately that anytime an actor does a movie, tv episode they are "leaving", so I seriously doubt it.

I'm not sure what website. Sorry. But it said there is a new 'Criminal Minds' series coming out and he was going to be on that show.

** I know, it's gotten to the point where it's ridiculous, anymore. Just a small movie part or something and the magazines/websites about fall over themselves with really awful conjecture, when it's so obvious that the person isn't going anywhere. Which is why I generally avoid rumours and speculation. Having been watching soaps for about 40 years, it's pretty easy to tell/understand what's going on behind the scenes. Even more so in the past 15-20 years, since the Internet got big.

** Ahhh, okay. That's what I was talking about then, he's just doing a guest spot on the show, is all. When he was asked that, he laughed, and said he wasn't going anywhere.
About 95% of the time, unless it's actually been confirmed in multiple sources (or with a VERY solid source behind the scenes) it's not happening. More often than not, it's just used to sell more magazines/get more web traffic.
