ANOTHER Great week! Goodness..I really couldn't wait to get watching. Friday's show went so fast, I didn't look at the clock ONCE!! GH is proving to be a great narrative driven show at the moment and I'm here for it.
I tell you what. It's way harder to write when you love a show than when you're unhappy. Snark is cheap and easy. LOL
Sit back and grab something, we have a lot to get through today. Photo thx to: @crimsonrum
WUBSY FELL OFF HER CHAIR THIS WEEK: I did. YEP. I had no idea 'ghosts' were showing up for Julian so when DUKE Lavery put that paper down I just.. died. I LOVED it. Ian looked fantastic. I don't care how he was back, he was back! Then Kate Howard walks out in the Connie Falconeri bloody dress? What!!? Be still my heart. Alive Alexis got in on it to tell Julian to kill himself already LOL. Oh I was having a joyful day that day on Twitter!
GOOD BYE OF THE WEEK: Kudos to Willam DeVry who filmed some harrowing material before leaving the show. Julian became the town pariah (even to his sister) and was just made to endure all sorts of wounds and falls. I liked WDV in the part of Julian and truly believe if he wasn't written into the corner over trying to murder Alexis, he'd be viable today. Alas, he's floating down the river with 2 slugs in him. BUT--hey, never say never right?
REUNION OF THE WEEK (GONE BAD): Oh man, LOVED that Taggert finally saw Trina but for reasons unknown, Real Andrews had to be out temporarily. REALLY? ON THIS DAY? It had to have been something pretty big. I mean, the actor was ok... but he wasn't our Taggs.
GIGGLE OF THE WEEK: Yes, I did giggle during the gun battle for SO many reasons. First of all, the guy missed all three even tho he was right behind them. Secondly, the cops took forever to get there and when they did, there were TWO. Jason stayed there, called Diane and she happened to be in the 'area' so she came over. Guess what. Jason got off because the cop watched the security video and decided it was self defense. He even THANKED St. Jaysus! I mean.... why not!?
UMMMMMMMMMM of the WEEK: Ummmmmm...that's all I got. Michael and Chase settle their score like men. A quick punch to the googlies and... things are getting back to normal.
SCENE I DIDN'T KNOW I NEEDED OF THE WEEK: Oh, I did love the whole Tracey and Alexis thing. Tracey switched her to the driver's seat and called the cops. What made it even more delightful was Chase. The three of them did these scenes just perfect. Tracey realizes that Alexis isn't just going to go away but probably to jail.
PAIRING OF THE WEEK: Dr. O and Scotty!! Hey, Dr. Kirk is stabbed by Scott and Lesil cleans it up for him! Then she goes to Franco's hotel and lets them know she will perform the procedure on Franco's brain. Why? Well they don't want to tell him the doctor's dead so she says he's out of town. Franco isn't happy.
TRYING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN OF THE WEEK: Oh, wll Brando and Sasha fall for each other? I think Brando is already smitten and into "protecting her". Sasha has to follow some guidelines to go back to work for Deception but she still wants to get Cyrus charged for giving her drugs.
MOVEMENT OF THE WEEK: Portia tells NavA that Ryan is a vegetable because his brain was deprived of oxygen. (who believes that?? LOL). Ava goes in to tell him off one last time. I was expecting his hand to shoot up but instead we got a little lip lift after she left the room. That's all I need to know that he'll be back!
BEST SCENES OF THE WEEK: Oh the Gray Family was glorious!! In a couple of scenes, I cared so much about the backstory I was transfixed. That's on good writing and stellar acting. I'm not going into the entire story here so I urge you to watch Friday's show. Cyrus is basically estranged from his mother because of a fight he got into with his father when he was a teen. Cy accidentally ran over his dad with his car, killed him and Martin and Mama believe it was deliberate. I honestly am ready for a "Gray Family" spin-off!!
DON'T EVER DO THIS AGAIN OF THE WEEK: NOPE. NOPE...and I talked about it before but this storyline was so traumatic for us I don't ever want to see Genie like this again. GOT IT?
WEEK IN THE WUBSHELL:
Carly and Joss talk about their complicated life
Everyone finds out Taggert is alive.
Sonny and Jason track down Julian; have a shoot out and then Sonny and Jules fall into the river
Laura finds out Martin and Cyrus are her 1/2 brothers on her biological father's side
Jordan and Curtis get into a bad argument over her not telling him about Taggert
Sasha wants to nail Cyrus for drug trade
Dr. O tells Franco that SURPRISE! She'll be operating on him because Dr. Kirk is "out of town"
Britt and Cyrus talk about a new pain medication they can possibly sell through GH on a legitimate basis.
Ryan is a 'vegetable' and Ava goes to tell him off. We see his mouth move after she leaves.
Michael and Chase try to patch things up. Shirtless. In the gym locker room.
Finn is willing to patch things up with his Dad for the sake of Violet
SPOILERS: Diagnosis Daytime has TWO WEEKS of scoops up! Jackie Templeton comes back on the show, it's the holidays in Port Charles and What's to become of Sonny?
DAYS OF NOTE:
GH is either a rerun or preempted for these dates: Dec 24, 25th; December 31st and Jan 1st.
I missed a couple of minor things I think. This week was just a whopper to watch! Everyone on the show needs credit for keeping up the pace in this pandemic. Seriously, there should be a write up in some entertainment mag about how they are filming. Hope you are enjoying the show as well. I'm busy writing the end of the year awards and it's taking awhile!!
