Sunday Surgery: The Dead Tell No Tales
When GH gets it right--it GETS IT RIGHT!! OMG I loved this so much. I also was struck at the fact that Ava is in Shadybrook for thinking she saw a dead man... who's really alive and Lucas is walking around talking to a dead man that's really dead! (That's how my mind works, folks!)
I was going to skip the blog this week because I missed most of last week but I thought it would be a cop-out so here I am! This week seemed to be pure Dan and Chris and I was actually engaged when I was watching. Seems like a whole lot of people are on together again and the stories are picking up.
Grab a juice and sit on down!
So, it's a little different when you only watch Mon and Friday live-- and then dive back into the other shows on Hulu. What a difference with no commercials! HUGE. EPIC. The pace. picked up too. I'm liking almost every story right now, I even got into the Cassandra bits at the end.
The Nikolas recast is working out nicely. He looks and acts "Cassadineish".
Shiloh..married to Nelle in secret?
Ava...thinking she saw one, and really did
Franco, learning more about himself by the daily
Tony, making an appearance that just 'got me'...
The dead walk tall in Port Charles. That's for sure.
ON TO THE SHOW!
MEET AND GREET OF THE WEEK: Ut. Oh...Robert finds out about Violet!!
DESPAIR OF THE WEEK: Speaking of the 'dead'...Franco's getting it from all sides. Kids with pleading eyes, wives that kiss them passionately and a Dad that has horrifying stories to tell. That Kin and Roger scene was magnificent.
I need that glimmer of Franco -- and I hope they just have him painting a weird-ass picture one day in his old studio. "What up"? he says when Liz walks in. :clapping:
BEST USE OF AN iPHONE OF THE WEEK: Oh, Julian..you are good but Brad is better!! You don't blackmail a pro. Brad has GOTS THE RECEIPTS!!
DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU OF THE WEEK: Bye Kim.
CLUE OF THE WEEK: Rat, hair loss--- rashes-- um... rat poison? Called: Arsenic. Please mention Alexis' lung cancer. Her immune system has to be compromised.
ESCAPE OF THE WEEK: Sure it was damn far-fetched to have these two digging a hole for a tree in the beginning of November. Sure, one of them is like an international fugitive-wanted in 9 countries felon who was just in solitaire for gouging someone's eyes out. BUT HEY! How else could she escape?? Would have made more sense to have Nik posing as a food delivery guy to the prison but-- then how could we have Sam and Jason share a snuggle in the park before she's hauled back off to the pokey??
HOLY WHA? OF THE WEEK: Well, knock me over with a feather. Just when I thought Nelle couldn't get more interesting, here she is probably married in jail to Shiloh. This means she'll get his ELQ shares. Muahaahaahaa...
WUBSY WEPT LIKE A BABY OF THE WEEK: It could have been cheesy...it could have been groan-inducing. Instead it was glorious and had ALL. THE. RIGHT. FEELS. I can't believe how I teared up for this!!
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Masterclass goes to Maura West. Damn. This scene could have been a short throw-away type thing where Jax just stops in to visit Ava. In other actor's hands it may have been. Maura just killed this. Jax looked bewildered, impressed and a little bit scared when he left. That's right pal, you've been AVA'D!!
PROP OF THE WEEK: Shovel meets Face. Props live their whole lives for this moment.
RUNNER UP: I didn't give this first place because --well, a shovel in the face is perfect. BUT we have a new GIANT PLANT THING to rival the Corinthos' Moss and it's resplendent.
HISTORY REFERENCE OF THE WEEK: Robert asks Laura if the portrait of Helena she's looking for is the one where she's nude!! That pic hung for years in Luke's Club!!
Surprise! Nelle got married, and we think it's to Shiloh
Cassandra escaped both prison and Nikolas to snatch Charlotte
Franco's encounter with his old family leaves him shook
Tony dispenses advice to Lucas and a warm hand to Bobbie
Alexis is in the hospital, mystery illness 101, Jules brought her flowers
Robert found out about Violet and is as fun as ever!
Sonny wants full custody of Ava (shocker)
Scott lets Franco in on his past....
Joss wants to live with Dad, at least part of the time.
Nina isn't pressing charges against Sasha
Good week for me--even if I did watch most on Hulu. Characters were interacting-- Robert was with Cassandra then ran into Violet. People in and out visiting Ava and Alexis. Even in the park with the breakout we get not one but two guards, some other prisoners...Curtis shows up, Nikolas picks up Cassie, Jason wanders in--then Chase and extra cops! GEEZE!! I'm digging Jax and Laura talking. AND NELLE!! Wow...spin that web!!! Just a lot of moving around and when characters get together, you get to see and think about what could develop with them.
Guess what's happening next week? Hearings on TV--yepper and I'm not sure yet which days GH will be interrupted or when they'll reair them. Will they put them on at night? Just upload to abc.com? Skip and regroup?
As soon as I know, I'll give you the skivvy.
Alexis is drinking at the Metro. OMG Britt walks in. Alexis just STARES AT HER. Brook is like Um... then Alexis mocks her. Tells her not to...
Here we are! One show aired this week and that was it. Canada got another show Tuesday (that was the shoot-out). A French streaming se...
