|Is that Chumunga thing in there?|
It's hotter than HEY-O here-- I mean HOT. Happy Father's Day!! We will have Gin and Tonics later so I suggest you start early. Like now.
What you need to know about the 4 shows that aired this week is that they were wildly uneven. We had a poignant scene with Ava and Kiki on Monday then....of course, NOTHING. Same with TJ and Auntie....story is rolling....then...NOTHING. When you combine this with the 15 second scenes we've been getting it's just exhausting. Why keep up with anything when you won't see it again for 3-4 days?
OMG so GUESS WHAT!!?? Like, get this...Amy HAS A BROTHER!! She totally does!! And see, if Nathan doesn't agree to be Man Landers for her GROOVY AWESOME BLOG she will like not be able to pay off her brother's giant medical bills!! Yeah..Chet, her brother, was a jock in high school and according to Dillon so so cool. Amy totally was NOT cool. Maxie made fun of her. You know Maxie, she was a mean girl and made Amy so upset!! Anyway, Chet went to Afghanistan and got hurt and Amy had to take over everything while going to school and working and ...OH MY GOD!! So you get why Nate totally HAD to say yes to being "The Man Landers" so she could get press for her blog. DUHHHHHH.
So, on Wednesday Spinelli popped up so fast that it had to be an editing mistake. He was all of a sudden at Sonny's place, in conversation. LOL, like he'd been there for years. Spin was helping Jason find out about the delivery guy because Jason was so concerned about him harming his family. (hard to tell, but I guess he was). Welp, they hacked into all the hackables and viola! There he was--at GH. Jason ran in ....and saved the day:
It took a hell of a lot of grunting, sweating and hyperventilating but these two fought it out on the roof of GH. The Police finally came and took the Goon away. Jason didn't find out who he was working for, however. The guy just said Helena, who we know is 'Dead'. Ergo, that went nowhere. ;eyeroll:
Meanwhile....Sam's having her own mini-freak out! She's getting snippy, all wired up and hallucinating. Back in the 80's we would have considered her perhaps doing the snow-blo but...nope. Dr. Griffin thinks it may be mono or PTSD from Olivia Jerome abuse and Kevin thinks she's under a lot of stress. Whatever it is, she's seeing stuff like this:
Which makes me think of Olivia's LSD trips. This "shock" vehicle has been used so many times in soaps it's not even that alarming. It's like..whatever, just tell us what's wrong and get on with it!
Auntie Stella is sticking around--for the 'summer' anyway. I'm glad. Maybe that means TJ will be on more? Again, though people need to move out of their sphere in this group! NO reason Auntie can't be a Ward. NONE. SO, make that happen. Thanks. Even by marriage, it would get her around the Qs.
UGGGG...the most painful thing of the week was watching first Olivia and then Sam ream out Alexis for being a total hypocrital IDIOT about Julian. Seems Alexis wants Jules to have his 'right' to see Leo, even though he's been in jail most of the time and you know, TRIED TO SLIT HER THROAT. But, who's counting? I swear even NLG has a tough time with this because her face is like NOPE NOPE NOPE. I need someone to tell me what the endgame here is because--it's just maddening. They should have woven Sam and Alexis (and the girls) way more into the whole Valentin mess because they ARE Cassadines after all, and who knows, we could have gotten some drama out of the whole thing besides Anna being crying guilty-ass'd about it all.
Looks like Family Lante is finally happy. I'm happy they are wearing their Camp Lila shirts--and that Spencer is still being a pill. Hey, that's my thing. Charlotte is turning into a nice girl. (ie: we need some sass)... Rocco is adorbs as well. Laura is moving into Kevin's now..so we'll see if we see them together again soon? Spencer is gonna HATE that small place lol. Why not everyone pile into Wyndemere? They could ALL fit and be a central house like Llanfair was on OLTL--
Joss made A TON of sense about Sonny and Carly. She asked if Carly wanted her to be treated by a guy like Sonny treats her. (Which is the exact Molly convo to Alexi btw). Carly justifies and hedges and ends up snogging with Sonny anyway because--you know, CarSon.
The good parts of this week show was that the kids stepped it up and did great jobs. Josslyn was on point, little Jake acted his heart out and let's face it, Spence, Charlotte and Rocco acted just like kids in families do!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Out of all the scenes, I chose this one because it was done well--and way WAY WAY overdue. Maddox and Jake were good together, it felt like a real therapy session and the dialog was pitch perfect. My only complaint? All chopped up (as usual), not long enough and I'm afraid we won't see another one for awhile. KUDOS to both Anthony Montgomery and Hudson West for these scenes.
OMG, I just thought. If Hudson West marries North West...she'd be North West West !!!
PROP OF THE WEEK: Vending Candy. First Goon Guy is there, then Hayden saves the day and she feels better about becoming a mama. Good candy can do that to you.
JUST PLAIN STRANGE: I didn't even see this. It was on the day of the Alexandria shootings. Now.. is it me or--have we had like a LOT of mass shootings since GH has been airing?? Hell, I remember them plunging Alcazar off a high balcony after 9/11. Michael waving a gun around after a school shooting. GH has had SO much in the violence area, it's not even funny. So, on a day when Liz has a gun as part of a hallucination, they run this? HUH? I just do-not-get-it. They didn't even put one up the day Jason was all over Jake. Just baffles the mind.
SO! That's that-- My big idea? Have Wyndemere just open up. Lante moves in to keep Charlotte feeling at home. Because she's not divorced from Val yet, Nina still stays there too. Laura moves in with Spencer. THEN, Alexis finds out Jules financed her house using mob money because the AFT comes and seizes it. She's gotta go there too! That would make Sam have to come around with the kids and well, see, I'm just trying to get more people to interact together. Oh, Bobbie could find an old will of Stavros, giving her a wing of the house and Brad and Lucas have to go there because they are struggling with money.
So..MY LAST WEEK OF WORK this school year!! I'll be done Thursday-- woo hoo!! You'll have to put up with me even more now.
