|Wubs is going to need one of these to keep track of all the stories!
Who is it?
A bunch of new characters again!!
Just when I think I have a handle on things, more stuff is thrown into the fire --and I'm once again just amazed how huge this show can get. Speaking of huge, I'm going to have the one thing I hardly ever have: Cinnamon Bun!!
I'm going to start by just using GH's own promo stills they tweeted this week and have some fun. Then, I shall dive more deeply into the going's on...
ZO! You founds me in disssss basssment dancing chamber!! You bring me blood of my daughter? Sank you dears Anna. Now, let's get a Cuban Zandwiches and talk revenge!
Hmmmmm, I wonder how you'd taste with some nice Chardonnay....
So... he used a knife... and.. it was a thin cut and... wait!! Wait! I read a Jack the Ripper story once and oh my GOD, MAN! I think he's a professional ...um... chef! That's it!
So, you're saying I'm too old for this leather look?
ON TO THE SHOW!! If you watched all week you'll know there was a heck of a lot going on. Trying to get it all in the blog and tweeting it live was exhausting!! Let's go story by story. Settle in because I have no idea how long this will be.
BULLYING 101: So it seems clueless Lulu didn't even mention the whole incident to Charlotte because she and Valentin's schedules didn't match up. This was actually very true to life. I worked in schools-- and yep. Anyway, she finally gets around to going to Wyndemere after the teacher tells her Char might be kicked out ("need an alternative setting" lol). Nina's moved in because Kiki's killer is on the loose (?? ok, that's thin but...whatever) and she of course has to flounce in and hear all about it. Valentine's trying to humor her because he wants her back and doesn't want to tell her she's being a pain in the ass. Charlotte is called in, served milk and cookies and Nina basically lets her off the hook. Meanwhile Gram Laura figures out it's Aiden she's bullying. Thank goodness for grandmothers!
BLOOD AND SALSA: Anna and Finn shared some great scenes this week, especially with Epiphany. Anna and she were light and funny and I loved it. Finn 'surprised' Anna and jumped on the jet with her to go to "Cuba". To everyone's credit they didn't give us yet another "cafe" this time it was a dance studio! We saw some of Anna's moves and eesh.. we saw some of Finn's! NOPE NOPE NOPE! Anyway, they are trying to convince Dr. O to come back and save Britt. Even though they brought her blood to test, she's too smart for that. I'm hoping she doesn't fall for it. I need to know Lesil is safely in Cuba, smoking cigars and dancing her heart out.
**NOTE: Kudos for mentioning the pox thing that got Tiffany back in the day-- nice use of history.
TEACH ME: Looks like Willow is being chem tested with both Chase and Michael. The grief group is the key to her past (50% say she's Nina's daughter...50% say she's Brucas' bio mama of the baby they lost). She'd better run from Michael tho--none of his girlfriends end up in good places.
CANCER CURE: Oscar is laying in bed ...trying to look ill. Why don't they put some eye make up on him? He looks bright as a penny. So, Cam still likes Josslyn and Josslyn is helping Oscar 'through this". Drew looks bored, Kim looks concerned and I just want it over. What's killing this story (and it could have been a good one) is the acting and total lack of caring in delivering lines by a certain someone.
HEAL ME NOW: Daisy is around laying hands on Oscar and talking to Krissy at the bar. Both Kim and Alexis smell something rotten in Port Charles. In a new twist, we see Daisy stealing the paper that Sam's been looking for. Ergo, whoever runs the cult must be the one that sent her the clipping?? I'm putting Sam's "Leland" story in here too because I don't want to take a lot of time with it. I guess her old mark Leland died and she's wondering who did it. Sam was a con artist when she first came on GH in case you didn't know. Maybe the person is the son or daughter of this Leland? She cleaned him out before she left town so--could be.
A NEWBIE AND A NEWSPAPER: Mike is at his memory facility when we meet the new lady he likes, "Yvonne" (side note, both she and Stella were on Fresh Prince and played sisters). Yvonne forgets she's married and her husband (an old beau of Stella's) doesn't like that one bit. We heard Galena about 100xs now--as someone said on Twitter, it's the new Croton.
RAGIN' RYAN: He's having fun because the police finally figure out that whoever killed Mary Pat killed Kiki. Serial killers love to have recognition for their work and he was beaming. He gets to take care of a grieving Ava, practice some psych-therapy and plan his next kill--what more could he want?!!! Laura's the big pain in his plan and he let her have divorce papers. He also yelled at her so hard it scared ME!! Sitting her in my chair in Rochester--I jumped! JL is just superb!! Ryan's not able to hold it together all the time, which is probably a symptom of his not being on meds and trying to contain his rage on the daily. Whatever it is--it's SPOOKY!!
WHATEVER THE HELL THIS IS: Ok, I like the angle that Sonny realizes he ruined this chick's life by killing her Dad but-- now what? I don't think they'll sleep together or they would have already. She's agreed to drop the whole thing (because "dimples") and Jason yelled at her about Drew. So St. Jaysus actually got her to give up Drew's memories because she feels badly about Oscar having cancer. (I guess??) So, Drew has his memories safely in a little stick and will probably put them in a drawer for...? Months? Years??
OTHER NUTSHELL ITEMS:
Alexis got Griffin off the hook with his "iCloud" and his phone (Help from Spinelli off camera)
Franco's rage painting again
Oscar wants Jason to be executor of his will--he has some ELQ shares to leave
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Finn, Anna and Epiphany. This was an unexpected delight!! I've missed Sonya Eddy and was so happy to see her do something a bit fun. They all had a great time with it, you could tell.
FAVE SCENE OF THE WEEK: Laura and Aiden. Very natural, easy. The kid is a natural actor, you can't even tell he's "acting". Having Laura say all the right things was great. I liked Cameron telling Aiden he wasn't as small as a bug as well.
BEST HUG OF THE WEEK: Gah!! Cam telling Franco he has them as his family... although Cam better not lose his edge! Don't make him all Oscar and Michael on me!!
BIGGEST NOPE OF THE WEEK: I finally get Felicia and Mac and there's PETER-- all in my face with Maxie. He slept in the hallway to "protect" her from the killer running loose. Mac read him the riot act but didn't punch him in the eye so it was a lose/lose for me.
OTHER FACES OF THE WEEK: NO COMMENT.
PHEW! Ok.. so that was one big week of stuff. I get that the whole Sam/Leland thing is going to tie into the cult somehow but--dang... that means another new character as the cult leader. I really wonder if they'll keep this DA chick much longer. She seems to be not really relevant. Kiki's funeral will be next week and I'm sure that will be interesting. Get going on the Brucas story (and have them both on, please)--because I'm gonna lose interest!
have a good week!
