Sunday Surgery: Blushing Bride

Image
Of Course we're in love.... can't you tell? 

ANOTHER STELLAR WEEK!! I actually got home as soon as possible Monday to get all set up and in place for GH!! Squee!!  The blog can't begin to capture all that happened so watch the show! 

Let's get to it. I'm going to have all the CAKE I WANT in honor of Ava, Princess Of Wyndemere. 

Image

Ah.. Monday's show. First of all the cliffhanger on Friday left me wanting so much more I could barely wait and it didn't disappoint! We not only had one but TWO revelations that day. TWO!! Three if you count everyone finding out about Nikolas being alive. 
Lord, my heart could barely take it!! 

Image

REVELATION OF THE WEEK: Oh so many to choose from but--but-- what?? Valentin is NOT a Cassadine?? OMG. HOW DELICIOUS!! HOW INSPIRED! No one saw that gem coming. Not one site had it. Nope. Helena, doing a little affairing of her own has a kid, passes him off as Mekkos and that's why she feared him. Just think of it: not only was he not Mekkos he had a deformity to boot! I'm gunning for him to be Faison's! Helena found him when he was young and hopped on it. (sorry for the visual). He and Peter 1/2 brothers? Good lord. PLEASE make this happen!! This also means if Charlotte is indeed Valentin's she's not a Cassadine. I wonder if Valentin knows she's not his and that's why he hates Claudette so much?? Hmmmm. 


Image

BOMBSHELL TWO OF THE WEEK: Nice Day for a White Wedding? Oh yes. Ava, in her crafty way decided to get her hooks into Nikolas for some moolah (and a "title") before giving up the codicil. WHO thought of this?? Chris and Dan, I bow to you !! Simply perfection. Now, what we don't know is--is he still technically married to Hayden? If so, Ava's in trouble. If not, yippee!! They could have divorced when she was in town. ?? I don't know. All Know is that Ava is in Wyndemere, Asked LESIL TO STAY as her pseudo 'bodyguard' and I'm just so happy. Get Brit back home and I'll just lose it. 

Image

STUPID OF THE WEEK:  Meet Moo and Doo (which my Mimi would call my brother and I when we were acting like idiots) . My GOD. Sam couldn't wait 2 minutes before trying to see Jason? And What's with Carly? I mean, don't you have a new baby and a toddler at your house? (And 2 teens!!?) This is what you worry about? UGH. I thought maybe we'd get a few weeks reprieve before this 'I miss you so much" started.  We all know from a story/writing standpoint they can't be apart for 2 years if they are still "together", so?? I just loved Robert's whole attitude towards them. "Shut up, serve your time...and forget it". Well, that is until he found out they could do the leg work on Peter for him and maybe he'd get him out of PC for good. YES, IF IT GETS PETER OFF our screens, let Robert take their terms. I'm not that picky. 

Image

POTENTIAL MERGE OF THE WEEK:  Ah, Lucy!! Now, I'm no Sasha lover but if it gets Deception and Crimson on the same 'page' I'm here for it! These scenes also had interesting tidbits for Maxie. She was pissed at Nina dismissing her work as "helping out" and had a great idea how to get the two forces working together. She also got a little offer of more work from Lucy so who knows? 

Image

STORY LINE MOVEMENT OF THE WEEK: We know the Wiley thing is coming to a head soon (or we hope)...and here it starts. Brad's out of his mind about Lucas and also trying to keep his secret under wraps. He freaks when Michael suggests he watch the kid so he suggests Willow. Who everyone thinks is his mother but Brad knows is not. Hmmm. Interesting. Willow will bond, Michael will yearn and BOOM! Enter: NELLE!! 


Image

WUBS WONDEROUS OF THE WEEK: Well.. I am so loving this new Sonny/Ava dynamic! He didn't totally lash out at her about Nikolas! In fact, did I see a gleam of admiration in those dimples?? They seem to be on...almost equal footing? Avery can come and take Charlotte's horse over soon! lol. (I'm mean)

Image

BOB OF THE WEEK: So, Jordan's ol' friend, "BOB" died of an overdose in DC. Who's Bob? Well, he actually appeared on the show in 2014. He was Jordan's supervisor and fired her from the DEA after Faison escaped. I KID YOU NOT, it's in GH Wiki!!  That's him up there. Thanks to Pam on Twitter for the info. Anyway, not sure why we should care about this unless it's all going to tie into the Sonny-territory thing. (even then, why should we care??)! 

Image

POLL OF THE WEEK: On twitter a guy named Alan does a lot of polls and this one caught my attention. Out of 799 votes cast (impressive!), 85% of people have accepted Marcus Coloma as Nikolas. I'm finding him easy to like and get used to. Maybe due to Tyler's history and knowing he wasn't ready to come back that helps. Either way, he's doing a good job. He and Elizabeth looked yummy together too.

Image

SCENE OF THE WEEK:  Yeah, that's Lulu up there. Before you think I lost my mind, I couldn't find a photo of everyone in the room. There were a lot of great scenes yes,  this one just stuck with me.  Maxie, Laura, Nina and Lulu all at her house after the wedding in support of Charlotte. We didn't see Nina going over, she was just there. It was something that could have easily been done with 2 characters but it added so much more when Tad The Cad Martin Gray came over. It was "we are the women, we are taking care of our own, get out". I just really loved it all. 

Image

RUNNER UP: Valentin gets arrested. EVERYONE was there! He ran out of the tunnels (pretty funny) ...ended up in the park with Lulu following. Nina, Jax, Felicia and Mac, Anna, Finn-- and the police. Valentin made a heartfelt plea to Charlotte and was incredulous he was being arrested and not Nikolas. Anna talked him down and he gave Charlotte up to Lulu before going to jail. I really thought we'd have days of "on the run" with the two of them and was surprised it took that turn. (photo: @WSB)

Image

PROP OF THE WEEK: Moss was pretty prominent... and even kept an ear open for Donna with the monitor.  (photo: @SoapJenn) 

Image

RUNNER UP: Parking Ticket given to Jason for the abandoned truck. Jordan was really pleased with herself she could at least fine SaSon for something. (photo @4TonyaHuges17)

Image

WUBSHELL WEEK:
New Year's Eve and New Years Day lasted practically all week. 
Nikolas tells Valentin he's not Mekkos' son
Ava and Nikolas wed
Elizabeth and Nikolas reunite. She doesn't know  Hayden helped him. 

Carly engineered a meeting between JaSam
JaSam tried to get Robert to change their parole officer
Alexis sees Nikolas for the first time, finds out he's married to Ava
Ava tells Nikolas she's keeping the codicil as an insurance policy
Lucy wants Crimson to partner with Deception
Willow will watch Wiley the help Brad out
Gladys got out of town with a new car...but what is she up to? 
Gladys gives Sonny a study done in NYC that might help Mike
Joss kisses Dev and he pulls away
Cam and Trina are going to the Winter Formal together. 

Image

So some wild stuff happened and it gave me life. There were some missteps too--the whole what to do with Sonny is just not going anywhere. I like the Mike angle but now we have some rando mobular person gunning for his 'territory'. :Eyeroll: Whatever.  Jordan's getting some story about BOB--her old friend in DC, dead of an opioid overdose. Um..ok?
 Funny stuff:  Valentin ran with Charlotte out of the tunnels at Wyndemere and popped up at the park in 5 seconds flat. Meaning he went UNDER the lake to get there. Sonny was cutting up cheese cubes when he and Jason were talking. Giggle. 

Have a great Sunday. It's gale force winds here!! Tillie can't even walk in them. Thanks again for reading!!

  1. love nik and liz together. they have chemistry. loved alexis seeing nik for the first time. great week except for the gruesome 4. I really think they are backburner characters.

  2. Good read as always. I was truly disappointed in the Nik & Liz scenes though. Yes both actors are pretty & yes Nik & Liz's relationship is important to GH history but there was zero warmth in their scenes and it wasn't the writing. Did you notice how most of it was focused on Liz's reaction & we mostly just saw the back of Nik's head? They literally had to film/edit around the bad the chemistry. Yikes!

  3. Great week and great surgery, I couldn't agree more! Liz and Nik were hot! And I'm glad she didn't rip him apart. I'm sure that will change when she finds out about Hayden.
    Shiloh was on Hawaii Five-O Friday night and he played a good guy!

    1. Smoking hot good! These writers have reignited your passion for your beloved soap Karen! And this is why you are the Wub Queen!!

  5. I thought Valentin said to Tad/Gray I'm not Helena's son - not Meekkos son....
    I even went back and listened again - was that a mistake? I STILL think Dev is NOT gay - that there WILL be a triangle with Joss and Cam and Dev - if he IS gay, then it's a hugh turnaround from when he got there?
    this whole Jordan thing with Bob is on my nerves ----stupid mob storyline when she has done NOTHING to solve REAL crimes............

    1. IU'm thinking this is all going to be tied in to the people who took Sonny's truck. Maybe they're trying to get opiods into PC and Sonny is in the way. Jordan's investigation may end up tying into Sonny's. This is the only reason I can see them focussing on the Bob story right now. It gives Jordan an excuse to get the police dept into the story and not have it be simply a Sonny and the mob story.

  6. You had me LMAO! Great SS! I do wish Nik would've told Liz about his part in getting Hayden to leave town.
    Can we call them Moo and Doo (Sam and Jason) from now on? That had me howling! Oh and Hells hopping on it with Faison (good one...howling worthy) 😂 trippy! I hope so....
    Loving Marcus as Nik. He's doing a great job and he looks good with Liz but hands off dude...you had your chance. Haha!
    Thanks for the best surgery yet! 😁

  7. Okay - now I did this twice........in the opening credits, I have listed and marked in my head the people who go on tour/with GH Fantasy, etc. Every single person in the credits goes 'out on the road' at SOME POINT in time - everyone - even Dev and Cam and Monica......guess who doesn't? Kelly Monaco......never......I am not sure about Becky Herbst but everyone takes a weekend or two or lots and meets the public ...another reason we ALL know KM hates her character and GH.......she spends no time with them or with the fans......

    ReplyDelete
  8. Becky used to go on tour years ago - I even had the pleasure of meeting her, and she is just as lovely and nice IRL. She does have three kids so maybe family comes first. I think Kelly had a few appearances with Billy M but nothing since. I don’t think Ingo tours either. Great SS by the way! Maybe Jordan called Shawn who might be out of prison since he was innocent. Is it just me or is Finola painfully thin? I know she has been very thin for a long time but she looks almost skeletal. Hope she isn’t having issues.

    1. that makes me feel better about Becky... Ingo just started touring......I didn't remember Billy and Kelly touring together, but for sure she hasn't done anything since then.....

  9. I think Finola is just skinny, always has been. And they make her look even thinner by how they dress her. When I saw her in that long black skirt, I was thinking, she must be a size 00. She is soooo lucky that, although she is so thin, her face still looks full, and really good. Most women "of a certain age" would look gaunt if they were that skinny.

  10. Great GH week, great SS! Thank you.
    Ava, princess of Wyndemere! Love it.
    My thought was Faison...daddy of Hiney and Val. He may not have been old enough but anything goes in soapland.
    It's a mystery why KM is even still there. Maybe if they wrote something decent for her character. Back to being a PI working with Curtis? I also read, maybe here, that on the podcast that SB and BA(Spinelli) do they have never had KM as a guest nor has she ever been mentioned.
    Hayden and Spencer should return together.
    Looking forward to another good week.

  11. Thanks for a fantastic SS. So much happened this week and the show is really getting exciting again.

  12. I know. If the tunnels go under the lake for a short cut out of Wyndemere, then why would they ever take the boat?

  13. Thanks for another great SS.

    Is that bowl of moss (Tribbles) growing? Yikes. Looked huge when Sonny was cutting cheese and salami and having fun with the knife. LOL

  14. If Helena had an affair with Victor Cassadine then Valentin could still be a Cassadine.

    1. Other possibilities include Tony Cassadine OR what about the look-alike cousin of Mikkos, Petros Cassadine? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R9GSWlHxao - watch to the end!
