Not sure what to have today... maybe just some ginger ale as I seem to have that bug going around. Boo on me. You'd better have a big breakfast. This is a long blog!
Let me start off by saying the fire/burn thing was brilliant. Loved it. I do however, have to wonder why NOW? I don't think Shriner's is having a big charity push just this second? I'm saying this because we have the Fluke stuff to clear up, Jake going on and Ava back. It just seemed-- well, weird that it was put in there. The summer would have been the perfect time because the kids are on more and we all know how the lull goes during that time.
There, got that complaint out of my system!! On to the show!
How's Jake? How IS Jake? How is JAKE??
I don't know...why don't you go talk to him, Carly. Then...Sam YOU go in and talk to him. Don't leave Liz out!! You go talk to him too!! Everyone talk to him!! Because he's so..so...magnetic and special. I'm sure one of you can pry something out of him worthwhile this week!!
Oh, you can't?
Ok, then, thanks for that waste of time.
Um, I love Maximista.
No. I do. or I think I do. Darn it. I forget.
God! Guys, stop arguing. Hey, Spinelli...get out! Go see Bobbie, Lulu and Tracy.
Wait. Spinelli was about to be asked something by Bobbie, Tracy and Lulu..then...then..??
I'm back! Did you miss me!?
Sure did, I'm stuck in this Motel and..well... I totally forget why I'm here!
I'm FBI now..this is going to get good!
Ok, tell me when. When will it get good?
Fire starts when Cam knocks over a swag bag into a lit candle that's out for a kids Bday party (they were all over the place). Emma and Spencer don't notice. For FOREVER. Because there are no smoke detectors that are worth crap at Wyndemere!
Let's let the fire burn while we keep talking, shall we?
Yep, nothing happening downstairs while we drink and eat peanuts, right? NOPE
That warmth must be coming from our young love...
So, do you remember these?
Anybody? Anybody yet? Smell smoke? Hear the cracklin????
Awesome cleavage ...
Hey, you hear something?
Naw... just ice cubes tinklin' in the glass...
Hey, nice Candles...
On sale at Pottery Barn!
Finally! Spencer had gone back to get his special Robe From Uncle Sonny. He gets trapped (no one told him about those tunnels?) and FINALLY Emma rushes up, gets Nikolas and he finds Spence in the flames. Drama...yada...drama...who knows how long it took the Fire boat to get there? Meanwhile, Spencer is laying in the snow unresponsive. They rush him into GH. All sorts of good acting ensues.
Dr. O actually became a bit human and sent Spencer to Shriner's in Boston. Which was a great PSA for the hospital. Little Spencer is going to have some burn stuff done and he will have scars. Sad. Sad. I am however, living for the moment that Cam realizes HE knocked over the candle and started that fire. Heh.
Why, HI! I'm Kelly's waitress.... and you're about to see the new Kiki Jerome! Excited? Sure you are!!
Lulu and Morgan. No, wait. That's not Lulu. Hmmmmm, It's not one of the nine Colby's that were on All My Children either. Sorry, it's the NuKikiLu! She's trying to plan a memorial for Ava. Which, Silas is like, go ahead! Go for it...cool. When of course he knows Ava is over at another hospital. Recooping from what looked like a tiny scrape around the lips and a bad hair blow-out. Other than that, Ava was remarkably... perfect!
Silas tells her Sonny got pardoned and has Avery. BUT! Michael is going in for custody! She gets upset. Silas is hiding her because...? um... Well, what else does the man have to do?
I'm going over the Franco thing fast: Nina got out, Nina faked to get back in. Franco is faking too. In the meantime, Olivia had visited him on some sort of LSD quest-bonding thing and told him she was pregnant with Julian's baby. Because you know, he's nuts. Not faking it. But he is.
Oh, and he called Olivia Celeste from the Frozen Food Aisle. Which was pretty damn funny.
Um..so let me get this straight. You insert me for one Fluke scene..then have Ric take over the custody case and I'm gone again? Ok then! Anyone validate my parking?
I'm including this not because the custody thing was that great (Michael acting all "I'm a QUARTERMAINE"!! Carly, pretending she's earth mother) I'm putting it there because that's MRS. KIM from the Gilmore Girls as the judge! Squeeeeeeee!! Mrs. FREAKIN' KIM! Ok, back to your regular programming.
All bow down to Sonny's glorious newly black beard. Amen
SCENE OF THE WEEK: SO many..and all go to the "Fire Crew" in the Spencer story. They were all on point. Great to have Anna, Emma... Alexis and Patrick all in there. Duke showing up. BUT..my favorite and the time I will remember is Nikolas calling Alexis. The raw anxiety in Tyler's voice was so real. His voice even caught twice...and sounded just like when someone is so upset their throat tightens. Chills.
HONORABLE MENTION: Yes that's Franco licking his Tshirt. Our Roger is so fun. I loved when he and Olivia choral chanted in a round-robin sort of row-row-row your boat. Has to be hard to do.
FACES OF THE WEEK: Awwwww. Adorbs. Both of them.
PROP OF THE WEEK: That damn robe.
This week's show also should serve as a reminder to CHECK YOUR SMOKE detectors. Geesh Louise! Let's get Wyndemere up to code and get some sprinklers and maybe a pumper truck on the island.
Side note: We saw both Birdman and Whiplash this weekend. Loved Birdman, it was funky good. Whiplash scared the hell out of me. Great movie but ooooooooo the tension! Now you know what my fingers look like after typing up the blog. Heh.
Thank you again to Lisa who has all the SCREENCAPS I use every week. Thank goodness for her!
