WARNING: I'm going to be crabby in this blog. If you don't want the crab--just keep scrollin'. GH was NOT my jam this week. Nope.
Speaking of Jam, I'm going to have a nice scone and some raspberry.
I guess I'll start with the fact that the shows HAD to be edited weirdly due to the week off for the trial. Things were really off and by Friday ("Valentine's Day") I was just watching jumbles of things.
WORST OF THE WEEK: (why not get it out of the way?) --The Sonny "Funeral". Yes, the funeral for the guy that was being shown alive in a bar in PA --doing absolutely...nothing. Oh, yeah, he cleans tables. He cleans glasses. Stops the robber now and again but...really? Nada. He DID have a daydream of a blonde woman coming to him. He was walking though a cheap high school garden set but there it was. OOOHFF. We know it's going to be Nina at some point, but WHY NOT AT THAT JUNCTURE? Why did Phyllis go to Port Charles only to...learn nothing about Sonny? Just to confirm a photo? Um, ok. Guess we'll wait a bit longer while Lenny tries to get Sonny to leave only to let him stay. Trooper Timmy growls. You know, the same.
The funeral service itself was.. lackluster. The one part that was good was Alexis sneaking a drink. (Probably because I needed one). I couldn't care less what people were saying. Yada, yada.. yada..
THE PROBLEM IS.... Sonny "Dying" Shows how absolutely BETTER the show would be WITHOUT HIM!! in the 2 weeks he was gone it was actually great viewing. I personally would love to see the play out for control of territory. Get Dante involved (see my fanfic earlier this week). Jason and Carly-- bonding like the epic pair they could become. As soon as Sonny was shown and then went to the bar, it just went downhill. The cops are so stupid it's not even funny. So Sonny doesn't want his prints run? Since when? He all of a sudden doesn't want to know who he is? Cop takes the mug and the prints are too blurry but he doesn't look for DNA? Oh man, I could go on and on about it. I get Maurice is the "star' and contracts and all but damn. The story should be the driving force here.
THE BEST OF THE WEEK: Britt Westborne. She's a godsend. Love her as the chief of staff. She's funny, sassy...bitchy and ACTS HER ASS OFF. She's always "there". Whether it be with Cyrus acting all brave or showing her vulnerability with the shaking hand, she's just good stuff. And how cute were the Brad and Britt scenes? Photo from Parry Shen on Twitter. He made it!
BEST WTF OF THE WEEK: Ava gets a box and.......a roach is inside. Nik was like: Welp, how did that happen? Could it be a certain "Catatonic" psycho?
FLESH WOUND OF THE WEEK: Jason turns and shoots Brando for his 'own good' right there on the pier. Brando won't tell who did it. Sasha is concerned. I really wish Jason had aimed for the head, but I'm mean.
CONFRONTATION OF THE WEEK: Nina confronts Carly and Jax in the cemetery after Sonny's "burial". What was that mound anyway? Would they really bury an empty coffin in the winter? Anyway, Cynthia did good job here although I can't really get myself to care. I'm still puzzled why it was revealed after Nelle is dead. (or presumed dead) Will Carly be arrested again for ....something? Will she end up in Shadybrook....again...for..something? Can Jax just please go back to Australia before he and Carly sleep together? PLEASE DO NOT DO THAT.
GOBSMACKING SMACKER-OONIE OF THE WEEK: SO! Molly and TJ!! Having their commitment ceremony! Gee!! Look at that!! NOW COME ON. And Molly only wants Krissy there!! IN a law office-- is. this. legal? I thought they didn't want legal? Why couldn't it be a fun thing? We've only waited a bazillon years for this. And it was like..BAM! Sonny's funeral, next day--this? Was it an editing thing? We didn't even really see their story much after the first fight. So---much---wrong---here.
NEW SET OF THE WEEK: Geeze LOUISE!! New bar in PA now a new place in Port Charles? Swanky new Port Charles Grille? I guess they were as sick as the Metro as I was!! We also got some club that Portia and Curtis went to ...but it was very cement/generic. I do like the Grille set and the name harkens back to Old School GH .
GUEST OF THE WEEK: Monica finds Lesley at the stoop. Lesley will ask Mon to help with the Cyrus situation. Good. But they should have been shown the day after. You think they were in the living room while Chase/Willow/Michael/Sasha were going to dinner? Nope, because Michael and Sasha went in there. Up in the library? At night? I'm... just... flumbuttoxed.
SYMPTOM OF THE WEEK: Franco's hair is falling out from the radiation. And...didn't he tell Lesil he would talk to Kevin first and get hypnotized? And he's not? Does she know? Did Dr O and Scotty have a nice Valentine's Day? I need to know.
JOY OF THE WEEK: Valentine's Bags!
ALSO RANS OF THE WEEK: Seeing Jenny and Tad talk about a road trip lifted my spirits a bit but I'm not sure it's going to happen. The story of Jackie and Greg and Finn and DNA is getting lost in all the other stuff happening. Didn't Finn and Anna leave to find Dr. O? How's that going?
Sonny didn't mess the bar up. No one cares.
Sonny is mad cop might run prints.

Jason cries hard over Sonny's death.

Nina goes to Jordan about the night Nelle died
Franco's hair falls out
Alexis admits to drinking again ...but only one mini-bottle
Cam was accepted to Stanford but is too scared to go
Britt gets Brad out of jail; cuteness ensues
Jackie wants to go to Vermont to find Mama Gray
Sasha and Michael might get back together
Chase and Willow might get back together
Willow will live in the Q gate house
Felix asks Lucas for a drink; but only as friends
Leslie asks Monica for help with the Cyrus situation
Sam/Jason: Chem Test
Sam/Dante: Chem Test
Sasha/Brando: Chem Test
And....there you have it . It was just a very strange week that left me wondering what the heck was going on. GH has been really good lately and in the past couple of weeks...sad horn. I'm going to hope that some of that has to do with all the interruptions and such. I am going on the record to say the Sonny thing needs to just stop. Have Lenny and Phyllis find out. Phyl takes a job at GH and Lenny buys Kelly's. Sonny still won't know who he is and-- well, frankly he can go to Bensonhurst. The Willow/Chase/Shasha/Michael thing is just not my style. I find it bland and boring. Chase is the only character worth saving for me at this point. Dante and Sam? Hmmm... if only there was some life to those scenes (if you know what I mean). Is Ryan coming back? Can I get Jordan out of the way so Mac can be on more? So many questions!!
That's a wrap. Have a great rest of the day. Hope you are warm and toasty. We have about a foot and 1/2 of snow where I am but it's all good. I have 2 doses of the vaccine in me and the light is showing at the end of the tunnel.
