There were a LOT of characters on this week. COVID? What COVID? lol..which is great for us and I'm glad they've figured out how to do the show that appears almost seamless. They didn't even use rubber dolls! LOL
Oh, Pennsylvania played heavily into this week's show so I'm going to go get some Amish donuts for us all. You'll thank me later.
Off camera, it was really fun but you know...
THE 'I FORGOT ABOUT THIS' OF THE WEEK: Um, okay. Hey, I'm all for seeing Kin and Jackie no matter what. It just kinda came out of left field, no?
"NELLE'S BODY WAS FOUND ON THE PENNSYLVANIA SIDE OF THE RIVER"
CAPER OF THE WEEK: I was so confused with Friz until they stepped off the elevator..and looked like the cat that ate the canary. Yep, loved it. And I LOVE THAT LIZ WAS IN ON IT. She Gives NO Fs right now. Manipulated by both Ava and Nik, even she knows this is a delicious twist. Also liked how the writers framed this in the end. Had me guessing and scratching my head. The fact Scotty asked for more money was fun. Franco loved it...Liz not so much. I can't wait to see how it ends!
UNEXPECTED PAIRING OF THE WEEK: Oh, remember these two? Used to be 1/2 bro and sis but now not related. Still have each other's backs so to speak. Valentin goes with Alexis to the Neil memorial where she's told by his brother it's her fault he OD'd. When Alexis left that room crying, it was just heartbreaking.
GUILT OF THE WEEK: Molly talks to Stella and realizes she may not have been SO wrong to lose faith in TJ when he was kidnapped. Question is, should she had jumped the first guy she saw? Meh, she's young and you know, why not?
FIGHT OF THE WEEK: Ned gets drunk and decides to rumble with Val in the alley over ELQ. Alexis is also ordering a drink at the same time. Interesting.
BOYSCOUT OF THE WEEK: Oh, Cam...so cute and even wants to get a part time job to help with family finances!! He doesn't even give in to temptation of kissing Joss at the coffee shop. Awww. Sorry guys, I like my characters with edges. I liked a troubled Cam. This is just.. boring as all hell. The teens are dull. I'm not sure if it's the trend now to write kids like they are all moral centers with no angst and don't mess up but damn. Soaps aren't after school specials. I know MANY will disagree with me but being a teen of the '70s this is just. snooze worthy.
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
Dante wants to come home but can't now?
Chase tells everyone Nelle was found..ON THE PENNSYLVANIA SIDE OF THE RIVER
Carly tells Jason and Sonny about her not going to Nelle right away. Chase wants a statement
The homecoming dance is near: The 4 are going as "friends' but..do they want to?
Lois tells Ned she erased Olivia's message to him. Ned gets jelly of Robert
Ned drinks at the Rib, fights with Valentin and Alexis orders a drink
Sasha is buying drugs
Now that Nelle is dead and her body is on the PENNSYLVAINIA SIDE OF THE RIVER, Chase thinks they can drop the pretense about scamming Michael and Willow.
Tad Martin Gray hears NELLE was FOUND ON THE PENNSYLVANIA SIDE OF THE RIVER and realizes he has a letter from her to be opened "at the time of her death"
Liz, Franco and Scotty blackmail Nik and Ava for money with kissing photos
Neil's brother tells Alexis she's the reason he OD'd
Robert, Ethan and Olivia are on their way home. Ethan is going on to Antigua
Scotty and Bobbie broke up!
NEWS: Yes, Kim Delaney is playing Jackie Templeton. Who is that you ask? She's Laura Templeton's sister! Who's that you ask? Oh, when Laura went missing they teased us for weeks with a look alike in the shadows. It was Janine Turner!! Then her sister Jackie came on and she was an ace reporter. Think Margot Kidder as Lois Lane in Superman. That's what they were going for. Anyway, Lulu was thinking about seeing a famous journalist and. well, Jackie must be famous now! If they could have gotten Demi to do a fun cameo this might have made sense. Now? Weird.
NEXT WEEK: GH is preempted by.. BASEBALL. You'll either have a game for a rerun of GH. Check your local listings. :EYEROLL:
SCOOPS: Not many because of BASEBALL but check Diagnosis Daytime for all of them. My big question is: Will Ned and Alexis.. you know? Hook up?
I REALLY wish Kim D was going to be Chases' mama and the lost love of Finn who cheated on him with his dad. Could Jackie Templeton be one in the same? Sure. Why not?
Get the Nina daughter story OVER with. Send Nina and Jax to Australia. Jax can pop in now and again to see Joss. Nina? Bye.
Sasha OD's and further kicks off the Cyrus, GH drug story
Do something with Julian that has teeth.
Get Britt on more and get that hospital up and revolting against she and Cyrus
Get the Molly TJ story really ramped up, show them at home and feature them a lot. I guess this means keeping Brando but at least make the guy an undercover DEA or something
Drop the "Carly is guilt-ridden over Nelle"..it's not believable.
Ok! So that's that. Oh, did you know Nelle was found on the Pennsylvania side of the river? LOL It was said no less than 8 times in 2 days. It's killing me. Even Joss said it after her phone call. Who says that? She'd be all: Nelle's dead. Her body was found. Period.
I hope you have a good Sunday. It's a last blast here of really warm weather. We'll probably get one more in October but this will be nice to get out there and grill.
