Sunday Surgery: Lock Him Up

Tell me, does Aiden's cookie dough make a good hair gel? 

Oh boy. Well, it's my last full week of GH for awhile. Monday is a repeat and I'm off to Greece on Friday. I'll be gone 7 days. Mr. Dave will again take over the blog so you'll have a place to post. Sonya will keep up with the recaps as well so look in the comments for those. 


I wanted to go out on a high note for GH -- but here I am. Feeling less than "high note" and more like sad horn. 

Ok, I just watched Jeffree Star's Taco Bell Motel video-- so let's get some!! What's your fave? 





THE DREWCO Story, presented in Graphic Novel Form: 

Image

So,  Franco likes YOU more?

Image

You mean DREW?  and yah, totally.... sorry, not sorry. 

Image

Whatever person with my old face, I'm Drew 

Image

Well, you were a homicidal maniac that I hated but now people I love are upset, so snap out of it, FRANCO.

Image

Oh my GOD, FRANCO! You're Franco! Don't make me angry! 

Image

Kid. I might LOOK like Franco.. but I'm DREW...so give it up. And PS I don't LIKE COOKIES. 

Image

OH MY GOD!! MOM!! He doesn't LIKE COOKIES!! This is SERIOUS!! 

Image

So, you called me because Franco doesn't like cookies anymore. This IS Serious! I think you're right. Let's declare him incompetent and put him in Ferncliff..that'll fix him! 


SO, there you have it in a WubShell: Franco not only thinks he's Drew, he WANTS to be Drew and do and do all the Drew-y things he missed (mostly Kim).  Everyone's fighting to get Franco back and now the plan is that Liz, as his wife can have him declared incompetent due to mental illness or injury and they can stash him until Dr. Maddox makes it back.
GOT IT?? 


Image

Good Lord, I'm glad you do because trying to report/blog all this is EXHAUSTING. This story actually has some steam and is putting characters together we don't always see plus the bonus footage of NO CARSON.  I'm sure Sonny will be inserted at some point but for now, I'm enjoying the vacation from them. There are some bones I'd like to pick however-- and here they are:
Why do you stick to Franco's orbit with this? I mean, let's think about it:  I've never seen a soap delve into someone who's lost their memory that would REALLY do what we'd all do. I would show DrewCo going nuts with pop culture, news-- Google.. computer changes yada yada. There's NONE of that. He's not even really bothered about the fact he has no ID or bank account or anything. *sigh* Drew must have given him about $2,000 if he's getting new clothes and staying at the Metro! 

Image

Excellent Part of this? Dr. O.. she's the one that reacted the most like I would have if my BF was running around saying the were someone else. I hope they use her a LOT in this story and think about getting her on contract. God knows we need more comic relief on this show. KG's charm is magnificent and she steals every scene.  Also enjoying Scotty with Liz and being all crazed to help Franco. yeah! 


Image

SASHA MUST DIE: Ok, many of you are like: NO! Not another one of Michael's Lady-Friends. Ok, I know- plus she has her stupid "Secret" So I'll get off it for now.  The whole Cassssssandra thing? Don't care. Nina in general? Nope. So, I'll just leave this here. We KNOW she's not going to die-- so whatever. Hurry it up. 

Image

WHAT WAS THIS:  The Vow-Renewal.  Lord help me..but REALLY? Come on. Even wasting a 1/2 day on Carly and Sonny proclaiming their wub for the 99th time was too much. Yeah, I liked seeing Bobbie (still haven't gotten my Bobbie/Carly talk yet), Krissy and Avery but-- boy was it boring. Nothing happened-- no drama until after  it was over when Chase came by to ask about the missing warehouse man.  Then Dev had to give too much info to him. Wow. The DRAMA :eyeroll: 

Image

THE KENDRA FACTOR: Pushed me over the edge.  ANOTHER brunette skinny white girl ? REALLY? Nothing against her personally but GH is getting the "Ford Sisters" if you know what I mean.  PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS.  We have 99 stories happening and why the ... why why why. WHY.  She's obviously going to be tied to the Keifer story. Cripes but I could think of a zillion things I want Alexis to do, and this isn't one of them.  Could you maybe GET MOLLY'S STORY GOING and have her in that?? Or a Molly TJ Story as well?? Do we really need this chick??? 
And..ok, we get she's a personal trainer. I don't need to see her sitting in her sports bra in every damn scene. 


Image

WUBSIE MELTDOWN:  Wow, I lost my ish on Friday with this scene. Now, I love a good 'dream sequence" as much as the next guy. I've really enjoyed them and given praise when they were on. This just got me though. Why? You know I can't stand Peter-- and I was so happy when there was a scene that was finally moving him forward and getting Maxie the info she needs to kick his ass. I bought right into it. I wasn't even too bothered by his wildly over acting because--let's face it, he does it a lot. I knew the MINUTE that Jason walked in it was a dream tho and it just .......UGH. Well, I was mad. The upshot is that Peter isn't telling Maxie about his past and is going to help Shiloh and she's telling her parents she's in wub with him.  

Image

HAPPY DANCEOMG! YEAH!! We got to keep MAC at the PCPD!! I think GH heard our pleas!! (I like to think so anyway)-- Felicia's even happy for him--she's all into craft beer nights a the Rib and vegan menus!  Plus, he'll be with Robert more. Now pay the man to have a few scenes a week. Thanks. 

Image

I'm so happy, I'm giving you another photo!! 

WUBSHELL WEEK: 

Franco wants to be Drew, damn it, not Franco
Liz and Scotty are going to try to get Franco into Ferncliff until his memory is restored
Cam's angry. 
Mac took the job of "Chief of Detectives" after Jordan went back to work full time
Curtis got fired from his Aurora job so he's helping Valentin track down Cassandra
Sasha's not getting better, but not getting worse as far as I can tell.
Nina's sad that Sasha is sick
Julian and Kim still seem to be moving ahead with their NYC plans.
Franco is trying to appeal to Kim's emotional side

Carson renewed their vows; Bobbie caught the bouquet
Chase and the PCPD are looking for Barry Z, warehouse worker
Ava got a letter from Ryan
Alexis and Neil seem to be moving towards dating.
Mysterious Kendra (personal trainer) is stalking Alexis..possible ties to Shiloh and or Keifer
Hayden talked to her daughter on the phone again. 


Image

SCENE OF THE WEEK: I make a lot of fun of Burton.. and I usually only see the Borg side of Jason but this scene was exquisite. Just perfection. He teared up just the right amount when he was apologizing to Monica and ...it moved me. Yep. Me. 


Image

KUDOS OF THE WEEK: The lighting department. I really loved these scenes-- the light of the setting sun was gorgeous. It also got the mood of 'change'--


Image

GROWTH SPURT OF THE WEEK:  Good Gravy, last time we saw James he was a head in a blanket. Now, he's all ready for preschool and programming an iPad! 


That's about all I have.  I'll be here Tues-Thursday if I can, I have a lot of traveling prep to do! Hope you had a good week and your Sunday is the best. It's been so perfect here, in the 70s with no humidity, I've been a happy girl! 

Photos thx to: @Redbil and @SoapJenn

  1. That is a miracle. James is the biggest ONE year old ever

  2. You are right-on as usual, Karen. I was not only shocked at the sight of the 'grown' James, but doubly shocked when Mac referred to him sleeping in the stroller!! I've seen kids that size in strollers as a convenience when the parent is doing a lot of walking, but taking his nap in one? That's a stretch.

    Have a great time while you are away, Karen. I am sure that those of us left back here will be fine...

  3. Great SS -agree with all. Ridiculous to age James so much. I think they should cut their losses and get rid of Peter and bring back Spinelli for Maxie (and Georgie-long forgotten). Sick of Shiloh and Dev is another loser actor/character. Since Drew looked like Jason back then, I could see her attracted to him first and foremost, and then the real Drew. Despite the memories, Franco would not be as appealing physically, which actually has a lot to do with the whole equation. Loved the Jason/Monica scenes and thrilled to have the Scorpios working together. Now if they could only get rid of the incompetent and bland Jordan. Curtis would make a better police commissioner than her. And no one cares about Sasha.

  5. Karen, sorry to ask this, not meaning to be nosy, but: You are going to Greece on Friday? Doesn't school start this week? I thought you worked in a school. I am confused . . . Whatever, I know it is none of my business, hope you have a great time!

  6. Good morning, Greece!! I'm so jealous Karen! Have a really good time! And thank you for having Dave cover in your absence he does such a good job and Sonya always delivers! I don't know if you saw my post about some waterproof mascaras but I like Too Faced Better than Sex and Tarte makes some good ones too but I usually go for Too Faced. I have sensitive eyes so I don't wear it often but I like this when I do. Anyway,you were so spot on this morning. I'm really peeved that we never saw Bobbie & Carly have a baby talk but I'm hoping it will still happen. She's her daughter and her baby is in jeopardy people!! I'm having the hardest time accepting and getting into the Drewco drama mostly because I love Franco with Elizabeth and the fam and my heart is breaking for them. And If Kim even thinks about getting involved with him I'll kick her a**! Cam actor is really nailing this Sl and his acting skills are really shining in his character. Sonny, Carly vow renewal..zzzzz! Avery was too freakin cute though. I'm not happy about what Curtis has been doing for Valentine. I know he's in debt but I think if he stuck with just Jax he probably would've taken care of Curtis. And I don't think Jordan will be too happy about the low levels he's been willing to sink to to pay the bills. Although she didn't seem to mind too much what he did for her kidney. Ok, I'm rambling so I'll say have a blessed day all! Lol! 😁

  7. AntJoan - i wanted to ask Karen the SAME THING!! THanks-
    very confused about the warehouse worker ---- I know Sonny and Jason didn't do anything to him SO did he take the money and run OR is he setting them up like he WAS killed? It came outta no one - thoughts?
    Robert's grin when Mac said, "you knew about this' was MY FAV OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!

  8. I haven't watched since Tuesday....or Weds...I forget, anyways. Haven't missed it. Might catch up on Hulu.
    Still watching Port Charles arcs, finished Superstitions where I wanted to jump thru my TV and slap Livvie every which way, hate her character more than the the Sam character she plays on GH! Next is Torn. Definitely better than GH. 😊

    1. I haven't been feeling it either and don't miss it when I can't see it like other times in the past. Mostly because of Drewco. But also the FOREVAAHH dragging storylines. So I get where you're coming from! Lol!

  10. Not to not-pick, well OK just a little, but I thought I heard Liz & Scottty mention committing Frank’nDrew to Shady Brook, not Ferncliff, since the latter is for the criminally insane.
    Totally agree that Dr O by far had the best reaction to seeing Franco!! Priceless! Like Cher in Moonstruck ... “Snap out of it!!!”

  11. Great SS and have a great vacation. I'm trying but I just can't with nunina. She's never been my favorite character but MS had a sparkle that I miss

    1. Nunina had some big stilettos to fill! MS really made the character her own.

  12. There are just too many things going on, both past and present, to really get into the show on a daily basis. They really need to end at least one old story. I vote for the darn baby switch.
    Agree about sports bra girl totally. I don't care why she has been added to the already crowded cast.
    The memory story could be interesting with details like Karen mentioned but again, it is a lack of details that is part of the GH problem.

  13. Karen has a family wedding to go to. I assume she is ok with me saying that? So I dont think she had control over the dates. I love greek food. I'll dip a pita in anything. I hope she has a wonderful time.

    SHe either trusts me or is very desperate to pass the reigns over again. I promise to do my best. I'll open a daily blog and put in some nonsense for you to read while waiting for Sonya's recap.

    See you all soon!

  15. I think Kin ShrinER must like his hair that way. Sorry for autocorrect in that sentence

  16. Seems there will not be a new show tomorrow on Labour Day.Why is Jax so concerned about finding a will codicil proving Spencer should get Windemere? Young Spencer is cute and lovable but he is getting older and story lines are hard to come by on GH. We all assume Nik is not dead anyway.
