|First We Sing...|
We are having guests later and made some quiche and hash. So, belly up!
THE WTF OF THE WEEK: The second car in the car crash. I mean... what the hell? No one checks on the second car?? All I can think of is the writers wrote it 'went off the road' (meaning down a ravine and hidden) and the set people were like, "Damn, we're not building a second location so put it behind those bushes". The result was a comical watch because we could CLEARLY see the car...and everyone, including the PCPD were checking out a dead girl and standing around. LOL--I understand it was to have Julian go there so we could hear him berate Brad for not being the driver ..but geesh!!!
MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Nina and Ava --now these two are so Blair and Tea--but with way worse history. Having Nina listen to Ava, find the ring and have them team up? Just glorious. I actually LIKED NINA!! It was like the "NuNina" was born to me in that moment. Sniff.
CELL-BUDDIES OF THE WEEK: Only on GH could we have this category!! Geesh, but Sam sure woke up and had some awesome scenes with Nelle!! LOVED the banter-- it was so fun. I almost thought they were in their dorm room, Frosh year of PCPU and not the lock up!! (Photo Credit: pmekme twitter)
BIGGEST BUILD-UP OF THE WEEK: How long did we have to wait for Willow's pregnancy test results? THREE DAYS! And she's not even pregnant. I'm wondering if they'll make her infertile or something. Like her periods are stopping for some reason and of course, baby Wiley is her only chance to be a mama. That would be the soapiest path.
MY FAVE OF THE WEEK: OH.MY.BROOK.LYNN! This character screams "Wub" all over her!! She's just glorious. And a catalyst for the Qs so so much! Lulu and Maxie have someone in common to bitch about! So much good in one character!
MATRIARCH MOMENTS OF THE WEEK: Monica! First she sabotages Turkey Day by calling Epiphany she also knows something's up with Brook Lynn and she and Jason share a moment (again!!) on the patio. Wha!!??
RUNNER UP: Bobbie!! Grieving about Lucas being in a coma but knowing all the medical implications, keeping a level head AND having a heart to heart with Julian! Wha?!
SURPRISE OF THE WEEK: Griffin! Now, it was spoiled by a few places and the day OF it was on twitter in the morning but it was still a nice surprise, especially if you hadn't seen anything about it. I for one, like characters popping in now and again. People do that IRL too.
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
*Tad and Valentin scared off Nikolas, but neither found the portrait yet
*Nina figured out Nikolas is alive and is teaming up with Ava against "Cassadine Men"
*Qs got their Pizza after Monica gave Olivia's food to the hospital
*Ned called Lois to get the goods on Brook Lynn
*Lucas is in an induced coma due to brain swelling; Brad is out and about with minor injuries
*Julian feels like a dope for cutting the break lines
*Griffin came to town to check Lucas; Sonny asks him to check Mike's labs; Mike is in end-stage dementia
*Willow is not pregnant but it prompts a "love you more" talk with Chase
*Wiley is adorable
*Robert still hates Peter
*Peter tells someone to kill Franco or Dr. Maddox or both
*Franco's memory-transfer is happening next week. Or is it?
*Curtis had a weird talk with Sonny about "Secrets" which was like an anvil
*Lulu and Maxie hate Brook Lynn (giggle)
I'd like to mention a few things about production. I usually knock them, but lately? They've stepped up the game too. Sets have many more extras--the hospital seems "Alive" again. People walking around, phone and PA sounds--- it's like they found some money in petty cash and went nuts! Things Feel richer and more vibrant. The character movement has been amazing and people are going to 2-3 different sets A DAY. (thud). You know I think the dialog has also gotten more 'real'. It's how people talk. Not just 'talking about a plot'. Example: The Metro scene with Anna, Robert, Finn and Violet. It just flowed like real life. I adored that scene and it really wasn't anything but Finn admiring Violet and then Robert and he having a "we have daughters" moment. GAH! To morph scenes like that makes a good show, imo.
GH had a FB holiday concert that is really fun...good use of social media and the cast! click here to watch: GH CHRISTMAS
Well, that's a wrap! GH feels like my show again--with all the layers and comfort foods I like. Yes, there are still flaws--but you know what? The fun outweighs them!! Are you enjoying the show? Am I just crazy thinking there's been a big shift in things?? For people that don't always comment....are you watching more regularly again?? Let me know!!
Until next week!
