Let's get rolling and have some hotdogs and apple pie in honor of the PC softball league!
SHAFT OF THE WEEK: Oh, yah.. was it intentional they walked off an elevator? Hm... Britt an Jax, fresh from a romp in bed find Jarly up in the Metro restaurant. They had just told Big Man Novak about their engagement so they had to keep up pretenses. Britt and Jax did not. It was glorious to watch.
MOUTH OF THE WEEK/MONTH/YEAR: We all know Carly's got one. Lord in the morning...she just does not stop! She has to lay into Jax for "toying" with Britt after Jason dumped her. Like SHE CARES ABOUT BRITT'S FEELINGS!! (ahahaahahhahaa) Of course it's all about her, really. Can't have Jax all into someone else while she's in the spotlight. Layer over that her blatant lie to Britt that she and Jason were in love right after Sonny's funeral. She can't even let Britt have that little of time with Jason. Nope. Ruin that too. She's the classic narcissist --everything always has to be about her. And if it's not about her, she will make it about her!
NEWBIE OF THE WEEK: So we all know Spencer is the one that set off the paint bomb at the Art Gallery. We saw Trina covered in paint and her meeting him at the Club. I did love how cheeky he was telling her he worked there. Heh. Then, they meet at the Pier (where he's tanning himself?? Um, okay), then again at the park. Once where he ghosts her so he doesn't have to meet COss (Since they know him) and another where they flirt up a storm. He shows her his preppy worldly art knowledge and she is all smitten. People seem to love them already on Twitter. Jury is out with me. This kid has a LOT to live up to. Not only the old Spencer's personality but being a Cassadine in general. So I'll wait. Not sure I'm digging him "hiding in plain sight" either. Um.. "Victor" can be noticed by anyone at anytime.
YOUNG WUB OF THE WEEK: Welp. Cam and Joss: it's started. We all know how they look together and finally they are having some heat. Joss is turning into Carly a bit for sure so let's hope it's not all wine and roses. I like the angst.
SPARKLY OF THE WEEK: Ah VAnna.. wow, this sure turned out way better than I imagined it. JPS and FH are playing it all with such perfection it almost is too shiny to watch. Valentin has been pining for his crush for SO long he just can't deal with the giddiness of kissing her. It's also strangely not weird or over the top either. He's like a puppy we love watching. Anna's doesn't even know what's happening so she's running the other way. That gleam in Val's eye tells me she's not getting far. This leads to:
LINE OF THE WEEK:
"your worse impulses are the sexiest thing I've ever seen"!! SQUEE!!! Val to Anna. I fainted a little!
THE MONICA FACTOR OF THE WEEK: Well! Monica was all over the place!! First she's at the house and catches Maxie being way too familiar with Bailey. Then, she tells Valentin he can stay at the house but she knows he's trying to ruin her company. THEN she goes to GH where Jason informs her he's marrying Carly. Her reaction? Disappointing at best. (she's "happy if he's happy"). AND if that wasn't enough... she lets Finn and Elizabeth know she's fixed all the cameras that Cyrus disabled and everything is in working order! She single-handedly stopped them from moving Popsicle Pete OUT Of the basement!! Heh. She got AROUND!! Oh! and the bodyguard, Yuri has a soft spot for her too! "She says I'm a good listener"! Monica, nice to see you in all the stories, lady!
I DIDN'T HATE IT OF THE WEEK: The Surprise Party for Chase turned out to be entertaining!! Sam and Liz find out that Jason's marrying and a whole lot of the town turned up. Mopeson Michael was pissed at Wills and Chase got Bride and Groom shirts but I found it hilarious. Violet was adorable and it put Finn and Dante in the same orbit to go down and "save" the girls from the firefighers. Good fun for the 4th. AND the second party at Charlie's we've gotten in 2 weeks!
STING OF THE WEEK: Oh, yes!! ANOTHER great sequence!!! While Shawn was trying to calm a frantic Alexis at the jail, Molly was busy planning Judge Carson's demise. At first we thought she was just being crazy going off on the judge in the middle of the Metro like that. Martin comes over and tries to smooth things between them. He ends up talking to "Naomi" about the old days and she confesses to doctoring some sentences based on her opinion of the people before her. (read racist) THEN, we find out it was all a glorious set up by them and everyone goes to Jordan's office to talk about getting her up against the Attorney General. Jordan also decides to get Shawn and Alexis out of Pentonville and into the PCPD jail. They come and see Molly and TJ. Hugs all around. Gah!!
BEST OF THE WEEK/WUBSY PICK: I can not tell you how much I loved this whole sequence. LOVED it. Sam and Liz overhear Michael say Jarly is getting hitched. For years (it seems like 100 years) fans have been fighting about Liason vs JaSam. I've always wanted Liz and Sam to get together. It finally happened!! Liz tells Sam to go get some Jason-related objects and they head down to the pier to have a little cleansing moment. Liz brings vodka. Wonderment ensues. Sam throws in her leather jacket, Sprinsteen tickets they never used and a dominos set. THEN throws in a bottle of tequila and watches it torch. KUDOS to the writers for not having just a boring Jason tells Sam and they mope scene. KUDOS to the writers for having the ballios to NOT have Jason tell the mother of his children he's engaged to Carly before he tells half the town. Heh. God, I had fun watching this. The Dante/Finn aftermath was joyful too. If you haven't seen the scenes, get out there and find them. :Clapping:

WUBS WEEKLY WISHES: I'm all focused on Carly's Wedding. I want it to be an over the top grand affair. They have to impress the Five Families so it has to rival the one in The Godfather. The Wu Family shows up with Brad in tow because they sprang him outta jail. He brings Britt as his date. Carly is cheeky enough to make ALL the kids (Danny, Jake... Scout, Aiden, Donna and Avery) part of the wedding party. Then, as they cut the cake a door slides open because the chef wants to greet the happy couple. YOU KNOW WHO THAT IS! :dimples: I actually want Carly stuck with a flannel wearing no-memory beer swigging MikeSon who's in love with Nina. Think about it.
SPOILERS: We are getting a pool set. Yes, we need it. Place to hang for the teens and it's on top of the Metro Court. Sam lets Jason know her feelings on the Carly subject, MikeSon worries about Lenny, Anna figures out a clue to the Peter mystery and Lesil and Britt share a mom/daughter moment.
FINAL THOUGHTS: WHEW!! I didn't even get into half of all of the great stuff that transpired. There's just no room. Mutiple sets, group movement, characters in each other's business--the works. Couple-Shuffle seems to be in full force. I didn't mind it. I didn't care for Britt and Jax but dang it, it kinda worked on some level. Spencer is finally here; Liz and Sam did a Jason charm-cleansing and there was a lot of kissing going on. Good for GH for taking some chances and spinning the wheel.
