|BUT...BUT... do I PEE on these or what?|
Oh, this week's blog is going to be a treat. Well, either a treat or a quagmire, I'm not sure how you are all going to take all this! I did find GH Wed-Fri to be some of the best I've seen in awhile. Just good old soapy-goodness.
I know we don't always agree on how the show is going, so it will be interesting to hear everyone's take. Maybe I had a blow to the head that caused me to really enjoy myself!
What should we eat to celebrate my good mood? Lobster Fritattas and Red Vines!!! YEP! Alberta Approved!
I'm going to give an example of why I really liked the show. The flow was great. Listen up!
|Nate talks to Dilly at the Haunted Star, reads him the riot act and....|
|Then runs into Val at Kelly's where she drops the donut (and the switched bag). He picks it up and then.....|
|Shows the pregnancy test to Dante who confronts Valerie.|
Did this take DAYS? No. Did we get a giant interruption in there? No. Dillon also sees the test and tries to tell Lulu but fails because of her big interrupts mouth. Valerie is mad Dante would think she was pregnant and throws the test in a garbage can where Maxie happens to see it. Yes, the whole caper is totally "Three's Company" mistaken-switcheroo but it was done in 2 days.
Sonny had a good talk with the family. Yes, I wish Kristina was there but what the hell are you gonna do? Sonny got mad when the wheelchair came and he had to go get his MRI. BUT! He went and who did he run into in the hall? Why, it's Ava who rushed into GH with Avery because of a rash. (She and Liz had quite the talk about excema at one point, btw). Sonny snarles and threatens Ava but she wasn't going to take it. Then, on the same day, Sonny goes back to the room, tells the fam about his seeing Ava and agrees to marry Carly to get Avery back. Geesh... cohesion! Honest to goodness follow-up on one damn day. :THUD:
Anna is back and had adorable scenes with Emma this week-- "you're my hero". Of course she feels guilty because she killed Carlos and now Paul the DA even knows. Later, they make Robin a necklace for her birthday and Sam walks in. Emma is all upset because she thinks Sam might feel badly. Awwww. Emma also starts talking about dead people interrupting weddings and "could that happen again"? "OH never EVER" say Anna and Sam.
GULP. Poor Emma. She just just going to be a MESS with all this, no? I am wondering when Sam finds out it's Jason if she'll stay with Patrick out of guilt? I don't know. I also think Jake/Sam should have more of a spark of recognition here, they really don't. I mean they do have hijinks together like....
Laura laid into Ol' Nikolas pretty well though. She had her best dialog in years. (and it wasn't involving LUKE AT ALL!!) When Nik mentioned that SHE 'left him behind to go be with Luke"...she should have pointed out that his Uncle basically enslaved her and she was escaping. But whatever. Nikolas is up to his eyeballs in everything it seems. Hayden over heard he and his Mama talking about having her shot and who Jake really is. She's got a plot coming, and I think it involves ropes and Victoria's Secret bras.
|Pride goeth before a........ Fall.|
Olivia leaves guess who she runs into ? Welp, none other than ol Jules himself! In the hallway no less--carrying the baby! She makes up a story about adopting a kid from her church (like you can just do that) and he seems to buy it? We'll see what Alexis thinks.
Hey, why not?
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I'm so mad I do NOT have a picture for you but there were no Wed photos I could find. Anyway, it's the scene where Carly is talking to Morgan and Michael about the 5 family meeting. First off, they are all talking over each other, just like we do in real life. (no one pauses as much as people do on soaps!). Carly was yelling at Michael for going and Morgan was all "I didn't go mom.." and Carly looks at him and says "Yeah but you WOULD have" . LOL I thought it was brilliant and SO real. I just really enjoyed the whole exchange.
SO, that's it kids. I'm hoping more holes get filled, some characters come to the forefront and others fade.
HAVE a great Columbus Day-- it's fall 'perfect' around here!!
