Everyone and his brothers are feeling the GUILT Over MORGAN's death. Geesh Louise.
We have had such bad weather with rain and some snow in the south of the state I need some hot cocoa.
The Angst! The Guilt! The on going "how I could have helped Morgan" continues. Dr. Maddox even got in on it this week. Dante wallowed. I was waiting for Darby to pop up, crying that she gave Morgan that web address to cheat on his paper!
I'm blaming Ned and Olivia! Hell, if they hadn't been having random sex in the boathouse, Morgan wouldn't have had his hook-attack on the door. See, bring back 2 characters we forget exist and they jinx the whole thing!
Speaking of Guilt VonGuilt Face-- Ava went to Sonny's to get Morgan's pills. She almost was stopped by Nellie (Who seems to be in far too many scenes) but got them in her purse. WHO took them out of the garbage? Hmmm... since there was zero follow up, we have to wait.
I need to mention the Nellie in the room. Sonny and she are THISCLOSE to doing it. Mark my words. She's staying there to take care of Avery. (isn't it interesting how easily Carly could just up and leave that baby!?) She makes him tea. She's all sympathetic. Carly rejects Sonny when he begs her to come home because he needs her. We all know how Sonny soothes his pain (Limo Sex, Crypt Sex...) so it's coming. I just hope to hell she doesn't get pregnant.
How NOT To write a long term arc (in my opinion of course, as a non-writer)
Introduce a character that has limited ties to the canvas that have only happened off camera.
Those ties are to two relatively newish characters. (One really new character)
Have them on sparingly...very sparingly
Character interacts with approximately 10% of the GH canvas (if that)
Have awkward convos about 'threats'..."daughter"...
Never really establish chem between one or two of the "Triangle" Characters
Bring on a daughter for said character.
Have that daughter declared a kid of 2 different guys in 2 days, without dialog really explaining motives except: Danger
Have some thug guy threaten another character about something we don't care about.
Does that cover it? This week alone had Claudette switching the daughter-daddy at an astounding rate. See, she took Dr. O's hair when she was at the Metro and passed it off as Charlotte's. Why was it dark? Oh, Charlotte's hair bleached out in the sun! (and Nate, a detective bought that). SO, the kid is not Nate's so it has to be Griffin's right? Who the hell would take her word on that? WHY wouldn't Giffin demand a DNA test? Instead he lets her tell that girl he's actually her daddy, hugs her and starts bonding in a nano-second.
Anyway, some bearded guy is in Claude's room and takes Maxie instead of Claudette to try to find Charlotte. He takes Maxie to the basement of some house (yes, looks like the old Spencer one) and is going to shoot her. In true soap fashion however, he decides to turn on the gas instead so there's time to find her before she dies.
MEANWHILE, Claudette is trying to Seduce Griffin and get him out of town with her--and wants to leave Charlotte with Nathan. Even though Nathan isn't her Daddy (follow along here). So, when caught in her lie, Claudette's explanation for all of this is that Nathan is a cop and "rich" so leaving Charlotte there would be a good idea. Even though she knows Valentin would find her there. :eyeroll:
The dialog in this mess was just cringe worthy btw. I can see those poor writers getting direction from on high and going: HOW in the hell am I supposed to write this?? It was so hurried and so wrong in so many ways, I couldn't even keep up.
Everyone wants to think that's Lulu and Stavvy's embryo-baby. Which could be true, right? Only even for soaps that's a HUGE HUGE SORA. That kid would be what? 3? Seriously. And she's about 10. Maybe she's Valentin's??
And you know I'm here to say it: I DON'T CARE!!!!! Not one damn bit. Nope.
So I guess Claudette's purpose at this moment is to usher in the absent Valentin Cassadine, who will no doubt be out of jail and buy Wyndemere. Why did they let so many months go by with him off canvas? Another character I really don't care about coming on to get some airtime. If he would kill off Nell and Claude, I'd be so damn happy! That could be his purpose!
Anna's staying in Port Charles and working remotely for the WSB. She realizes PC is her home. Felicia was talking to her about it. Oh, and by the way, Anna's now dragged into the painful Claudette story with the whole "help us" "the is Duke's grand-daughter" crap. Bleck.
Laura: Well, you know, everyone hated Luke too....
Liz: He makes me all tingly
Laura: I've forgotten that he tied Lulu to a chair with a bomb underneath.
Laura: Oh yeah. Duh.
So, I'll bring you up to speed on this situation. See, Heather is the one that tried to kill Bobbie! She was trying to protect Franco by giving him an alibi for being at the Nurses' Ball. She thought her baby boy was the serial killer!! Bobbie was in GH from fainting anyway, so she happened to go for her. Stupid Lucas walks in so she has to jab him instead. (Get it?) Heather is used for everything. LOL. She just waltzes in and out of wherever she's being held. Oh! Franco got her to confess on tape so I guess they will open GH soon. That whole thing was a weird-side story, wasn't it?
I suppose I should put this in for the JaSammers. These two are talking about moving to "Aurora, NY" (Which does exist btw)... and we all know they won't do it so?? In other news, The baby kicked. Danny is still missing, as is every other kid on this show minus Charlotte. Even Jake is feeling the abandonment. PS. Couldn't the prop department have put a toy or two in that PH? I mean, seriously.
Last thing you should probably know about is This Guy. Maybe his name was Keith? Anyway, think those "Million Dollar Listing" Guys from BRAVO. Hayden has a date with him and he turns out to be a scumbag BUT!! He gives out money for medical grants. (apparently from his own checking account). Hayden tells him she'll sleep with him if he gives her money. He ends up passing out and she has the check which she gives to Finn. (who's still dying if you've forgotten that point). It was a cute throw-away scene I guess. Designed to show how far Hayden would go to Finn? To show that Hammy would break down the door to 'save her'??
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Ok, so not really...but I wanted to get in the whole Gel Nail experience! They even built a tiny cubby hole set for it!!
PROP OF THE WEEK: Rice Crispy Treats!! Yeah :) and Bonus: I got to see RoHo eat again!
FACE OF THE WEEK: Hammy Finn is still sick...and feeling crummy.
SCENE STEALER: Maxie's RED RED lipstick. I swear she didn't have any on for a long time which made her look gray now this? Um.. nope.
WELL! There you go. I tried really hard to type up the Claudette "story" and give my opinion but it was tough. I honestly don't know what I was watching half the time. The show is just so... all over the place. I know we are in the throws of Morgan's death but now his memorial isn't until November 11th. Nothing coherent or together or anything. I watch because it's my show but boy, it's been tough.
