|I'm so THRILLED to be back here. Having a GREAT time..|
Pull up a chair. I actually found this week to be..well a little weak so the blog will be shorter than most. I'm having a protein shake--my new fave.
|Hey, Dad I need some money for a drink..because you know, I DO NOTHING!|
I skipped Monday's show and really didn't feel like watching it--so, I didn't! I know that Laura stood there all day saying "I want Luke" and I pretty much caught up on Tuesday. I also had the added bonus of NOT seeing Anna say goodbye to Sloane. Small favors for me.
Let's go story by story.
|I'm here...so Deal With It!|
Jane Elliot was superb and just needs the Emmy--now. Her looking up the stairs was perfection.
Why would L&L have to carry out this ruse? Helena? The boys-- what? Guess I don't really care much yet. That's pretty sad. Not a great sign of a return, imo.
|and I just don't get it..I just don't get it...why um..tell me...because I need to know...blah blah|
So...I'm not even going to bother to speculate what's going on at this point. I usually love doing that but I'm not going to put myself or you through it. For once, I'm going to let it "Play Out". I so hope it's worth it.
|OH MY God tell me...TELL ME....|
I've watched Tony every year he's been on GH. He used to sparkle and be fun in every scene, even if it was a sad/tense/whatever scene. There was a spark. I just don't see it anymore, He also used to improv A LOT--and I don't see any of that either. Actually RH is the 'old' way he used to act. (think Michael Knight as Tad Martin as well).
|Here are the share spreads, in case you care. Spencer typed it up on his toy typewriter|
ELQ Stocks: I'm trying like HELL to be interested. I wanted an ELQ story--but this? Well..it's just not good and it's confusing. Blah blah blah has blah percentage of shares and blah blah..control and blah. All you need to know is that for some unknown reason, Nikolas feels like it's his biz to run the company and get all the shares. He sends Rosie out to buy Nina's (which she did)--although it took like a DAY for Michael to find out about it all. (great plan. Sam is investigating Rosie for Sabrina (don't ask) and Jake is now head of ELQ security! He and Michael bonded over dreams and tales of Motorcycles. Jake notices a photo of Monica holding baby Danny and pauses. Who is this woman? (we all say the same thing since it's been so damn long since she's appeared). Why do I feel something? Rumor has it that yes, Monica and Jake will have a scene together. Get your window of 10 minutes ready!
|I'll get my tan ready to charm the ladies, boss|
Oh, the most funny thing this week? Nik sends Sloane to "get the shares" from Maya and BrookLynn. (off camera of course). How's he going to do that? Flashing his muscles? I mean, seriously. How's he gonna do that?
|You brings Ze Cheetoes and I'll get Ze Wine Coolers...|
TJ's Arrest: Why couldn't we have seen the actual arrest happen? The Wyndam's scene could have been done really well. But nope..for 2 days we had to sit there and wait while he wouldn't talk about why he was in the PCPD-- and Dante wasn't around to tell anyone. I swear this show is set in 1985. Ric finally comes in to talk to TJ. He's plenty mad at MOM who's "The Man" now. (figuratively)
Finally after a long drag out wait, we find out TJ was buying earrings for Molly and the clerk thought he'd stolen a credit card. (which actually happened 2x in NYC last summer) They called security. TJ got all mouthy because he hadn't done anything wrong and he needed to get out fast to see Shawn. Things escalated, they called the police (enter Dante) and TJ ended up shoving the mall cop to the ground after he tried to stop him leaving. Dante arrested TJ to get him out of there. The credit card was legit but the security guard wanted to press charges because he hurt his back. Mayor Lomax wanted TJ made an "example of" (again, off screen) and made Jordan keep him in the pen overnight.
TJ's mad at MOM and he's mad about Shawn. About her lying to him. He's just angry. She tries to explain things and he says why do all (Insert Name) people get off but those that look like Shawn and me don't? She's incredulous! Don't make this about race she says! He says it's ALL about race. Jordan reminds him he pushed the guy-- he says he was in the right because they profiled him.
Oh, and TJ also puts Duke and Shawn on a pedestal and says what good guys they are. Jordan finally tells him Duke had her targeted for a kill. TJ is shaken.
If you missed this week, watch Friday, you'll catch up.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Tracy struggling to climb the stairs after her engagement party. So great. Those stairs are very significant on this show, especially if you've been watching since the 70's.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Silas' peanuts. He was pretty funny with Franco. It was the old Todd/John days!
RUNNER UP: The tiny, tiny motorcycle, filling Jake's head with dreams of...???
FACE OF THE WEEK: Tracy yelling at Luke. She had a lot of great expressions but this was the best. I can imagine her saying: WHO WROTE THIS?! lol..
OH, and this happened! I did laugh and laugh! See, if we got more ensamble scenes we could have had Molly and Sam at the same time! Can I hope Nina decides to cook dinner for everyone?!!
I have 2 questions for you: Did it bother you more that the engagement and party all happened in 3.4 seconds---or that TJ's story took 2 entire days to get out? And...name 2 characters on the show you'd boot tomorrow if you could.
