So, in the wedding brunch tradition, it's going to be poached eggs and strawberries.
Ah, the party. It was fun, had a lot of people at it (even EXTRAS!!) Had FOOD! Decorations and LASTED TWO DAYS!! Plus, gossip, intrigue and someone went overboard. What more could you ask for?? A psychic?? DONE! Yep, there was someone trying to channel a dead Kiki from the stateroom where she died. We also had a drugging and near rape-- the darker part of this whole thing. The point is-- that those two days were hella SOAPY which is why I watch.
Doctha. Finns... you look so Sea Zick!! Is it me or is it your old flame.. Haydenz??
OMG, wasn't it fun drinking Arnold Palmers and helping an old lady out of the water??!! And you wanted to go to that pop-up club under the old subway...
Drink up, soon you'll be shirtless!
So, the boat ride. So much happened, it's hard to remember it all. Someone pushed Dr. O in the water and it looks like Brad or Valentin did it. She was remembering about Michael/Nelle and almost spilled it to Franco. The lights went out and Ava thought it was Kiki coming back to tell her something but it was Kim that messed with the fuse box. Why? Oh, so she could stab Drew with a needle full of a roofie drug, rape him and eventually have his baby.
Family First!! All the kids were there and photos were took. It was also nice to see Scotty and Bobbie around so much and featured in little scenes. Bobbie even got to partake of one of her old vices: Gossip she overheard!
HOPEFUL: I couldn't help thinking of "Star Wars" When I saw Sonny teaching young Jedi Dev about the ways of a mobular boss. "Stay in School".. "work a menial job"... you know, the hallmarks of virtue. Jason seems a bit jelly of the kid and wary too. He's right about one thing: Sonny never asked his family if it was ok if Dev lived with them. But, that's Sonny for ya.
SOULFUL: Ava, ever hopeful that Kiki will come back and tell her she's absolved of her sins. I enjoyed these scenes mostly because of Maura and Veronica's acting and the power of their emotions. "Sibley" correctly said that Ava and Kiki were supposed to meet for dinner before her death. Now, she's going to channel her. I hope it's done well and not too campy. Although it IS summer so.. ??
REMORSEFUL: Harmony finally flipped on Shiloh. Not because he raped her daughter but because he killed her ex-husband. The only thing I didn't appreciate in this whole thing was St. Jaysus acting like a lawyer. Not only did he act like one, the PCPD treated him like one too. :eyeroll: Couldn't Alexis have been the one to get her to change her mind? You know, mother-to-mother?
SHAMEFUL: Ol' SHank finally got his! Mac Daddy came around the corner at GH and put the cuffs on him!! SMUG and smarmy to the end, Shiloh was indignant when he was led away. I can't imagine how he'd get out of this but it IS GH and we've seen others come back from more.
DOUBTFUL: Oh, Michael. He makes Lucas throw out the DNA test results Shiloh got about Wiley. Ironical too because it would show that he's not the father which may lead to the Michael secret. In the garbage it goes!! Here's hoping someone saw it while sneaking around and grabbed it!
JOYFUL: Scorpio Brothers working together to bring down DOD. Sure, JaSam honed in on their parade but I'm still happy as a clam. I'm hoping Jordan is pregnant and can't come back to work. NOT because she's PG-- but since she only has one kidney and is still healing, she needs more time off.
WILLFULL: Yes, it was a Will-Full of stuff!! Cam got his car, Joss got his compass, Leo got his keyboard, Drew got his glass back and Kim got his Teddy Bear. Monica got a map of Cleveland (Will she visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?!)
SHAMEFUL: Oh, MAXXXXIE. So, the upstart of all this is she and Peter went to "Ithaca" to talk to Dante. Apparently she knows what's good for his mental health :eyeroll: They go into a room with a guard guy who has a gun. (Camera PANS to the gun) He goes in to tell Dante they are there to see him. Dante refuses to talk to anyone. (this is because Dom Z isn't back for a cameo)--next up Maxie demands to see Dante, rushes in and we hear a gunshot. SO.. my supposition is that Dante went after her and the guard shot him. If he's dead...or wounded it's 100% mouthy-Maxie's fault. Period. I hate this story for her and she hasn't been "cute" or "Witty' when it comes to this. She's been annoying and dumb. There. I said it.
That's a photo of Ithaca right there because I couldn't find any of the boring paneled room they were in...
Someone pushed Dr. O overboard suspects remain Valentin and Brad

Someone gets shot in Ithaca
COMEBACK of THE WEEK: IT's Hayden!! Well, Finn was certainly flustered, wasn't he? She was cleared of pushing Obrect in, btw.
NEW GUY OF THE WEEK: We knew him as Brody on OLTL -- here's he's Lulu's internet date and HS teacher. Will the kids be needing one come fall?? Hmmmm.. oh,he's also an Uber driver so he could pick up random Port Charles citizens and have a little cab-therapy with them!
FACE OF THE WEEK: Lulu realizes that Dustin is her Uber Driver!!
WUBS SHOCK OF THE WEEK: I almost chose the needle that Kim plunged into Drew but when I thought about it, this scene surprised the hell out of me! Hayden and...Jax? Do we even know if they are an 'item' or just "friends with benefits' or are they putting on show??
WHY OF THE WEEK: Why are Genie's arms ALWAYS covered?? I've been keeping tabs and she's had on that atrocious green sweater, this get up and that Dad shirt on Friday. WTF. She's not a size 2 but she's gorgeous and looks like 90% of us out there. LET HER ARMS OUT!!
All in all a decent week for the show. More of the Monday/Tuesday type of scenes and the summer ratings may go up. I know you can't have a party every day but you sure can have character movement and more variety.
One more thing, unless NuNina gets some zing, I'm over her. The character was Michelle's and now I'm feeling like Nina can go and just let Hayden take her job at Crimson. Yep, that's where I'm at. That would probably mean Valentin going as well and he's the last of the Cassadines on screen. But-- he's not doing a hell of a lot either.
