|I command you to give up that organ!|
This week was a delicious treat for true crime lovers!! FINALLY a twist that really was done well and had me guessing. There was a lot of dialog to get through as well, so let's get to it!!
What does one eat while watching someone in a coma? You drink a lot of coffee so get your cup ready!!
CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN:
KILAMONGOOROO Drama? Is this just to get Krew in bed?? Probably-- I mean I liked the scene for about 2 minutes. Tamara acted like a true grief stricken mom--sick to her stomach and not steady. The rest? Meh. Also, it really cracks me up when they do "location' sets for hotel rooms. Like hotel rooms are decorated in the kitsch we THINK of as from that country LOL. I also have a bit of a problem with them just going off to "climb the mountain'.Yes, it's a soap and all that jazz but we all know you don't just GO and get up on the highest mountain in Africa because 'you want to".
KIDNEY PROJECT 101:
Damn...KUDOS to the writers for pulling this off. I had written about the 'conspiracy theory" in an earlier blog and boy, did they do it justice. Usually on soaps the plots and even the most twisty things are spelled out in such a black and white way, all the drama is gone. Not this time. It was done over a series of shows and built upon each day. First was the Finn looks whenever they'd talk about Jordan's kidney... Curtis thinking of a 'plan'. Introduce Franco into the mix along with Kevin talking about Ryan all the time. Laura was lurking too..as was Valerie who was 'guarding the door" when the IV was tainted. Combine it all and you have a bravo moment:
"Ryan" supposedly signing the kidney permission papers after Stella lambastes him. Not only was it subtle, you had to look for clues; the drugging of his IV to get him out of the room, his quick "recovery" and then the final words the characters said to each other on Friday. Kevin's guilt over the whole thing when Ryan didn't wake up-- (was that planned too? How would have have reacted to losing a kidney when he knew he didn't sign anything??) Liz's look to Franco and Kevin saying "we pulled it off ". Loved the character mix. Liked how they left TJ out of it because of his career and probably his age as well. I'm hoping we will still see a flashback at some point. (Dave put it perfectly: "Ocean's 8 style" ). Here's to maybe Monica gaving a wink and an nod! Jordan has her kidney and and a serial killer got outfoxed. :clapping:
PS. NEITHER JASAM NOR CARSON were a part of this--which is also why I think I loved it! Sorry to their fans but damn, they do everything on this show!
BONNIE BABY BOY BLUE:
Ok, this adorable baby needs a little recognition..he was adorable in his scenes and obviously loves both Chad and Parry. He also looks like Nelle and Michael. I'm surprised Carly hasn't glommed onto that fact yet! LOL
So, as we stand, Shiloh is handcuffed at GH and is on the hunt for his BAY-BAY. Harmony is back to do his bidding and he made her go brow-beat Willow for awhile. The records are destroyed as far as his adoption goes on the on side but they have to get Diane's records as well. In the age of computers this all may be MOOT but..you know, Soaps only use technology when it suits them.
Nelle is on her way back to the show. Ergo; Shiloh will probably find his 'baby'...then secret number two will come out and WHAMMY. I'm just wondering if it will end up being Brad who tells because he doesn't want his kid with the cult. It should be a good summer story.
Why do I love this so much?? Well.. Nina and Jax intrigue me (even tho Michelle is leaving which sucks) and Maxie's plan to get Ava on the cover is delicious!! The whole discussion leading up to it was great too and we got to see Sasha's face when she found out Nina drugged Ava to induce labor and took her baby!! LOL!! She was like: WAH!!??? Anyway, Ava will be a great cover model (if she agrees) and will get her into the Jax and NuNina mix.
DA A GO-GO:
Bye! Sorry your character never really took off. The Sonny's past catching up to him was interesting but then it took weird turns were he ended up being some hero again so-- well. You'll be better off at YR I'm sure.
Margeaux turned in her resignation to Laura. Who I just realized has to get someone for Jordan's AND her job!
SUMMER TEEN SCENE:
It's right here people!! Cam was looking at Joss like a little puppy.
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
Kevin signed the kidney permission papers after being switched out with Ryan.
Kidney operation complete; everything went well but Ryan's in a coma
For some reason Alexis told CarSon the Wiley baby story, (we know why...they are CARSON!)
Carly went in for more blood tests on the baby
Josslyn is getting guitar lessons (maybe from Cam?)
Franco tried to get Ava interested in her gallery and life again
Sasha and Michael are going to Martha's Vineyard
Drew and Kim are in mourning in Africa
Shiloh got arrested
DA Lady resigned
WHY ARE THESE TWO NOT A COUPLE YET? Asking for a friend.
ACTING OF THE WEEK: I loved him--he's so smarmy---creepy and just a prick in most of his scenes, it's amazing. AND he's in a hospital bed! That makes it even better to be intimidating. His anger is palpable too. Good Stuff.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Gloves of a good caper
That's that!! I can't wait to watch next week in hopes that we get in on the Kidney Plan from the beginning, I also think Carly's blood tests will show something because why else would be be pregnant at this stage of the game? Seriously. We have Leo, Scout and Avery--all of whom are basically never seen. Why put another baby in the mix only to have them be nannied off camera?? Ava better say yes to Crimson as well. Michael and Sasha going to Martha's Vineyard has to produce something-- right? Someone has to know her or--maybe her Mom will be there too? (she has a biomother I'm assuming?) Nelle's coming back and that will be good. It will probably be just in jail house scenes but still. I think a Shiloh murder would be an interesting summer story--but I'm also thinking they'll take Wiley. He breaks out somehow and Harmony and he steal Wiley, forcing a search and the truth to come out? Hmmm.. Anyway, that's a wrap ! Hope you have a great week. Only 1 more to go for me before I'm off for the summer.
