I did have a good GH week. Why? SO many people losing it over Jarly. I live for those moments when something rather huge happens and the SoapVerse lights up like the 4th of July. Am I a "Jarly Shipper"??? Heck naw-- I've learned over the years not to ship any couple. Why bother? I'm here for the fall out. Now that they pledged their 'wub'... it can be messy and glorious when and if "Sonny" returns.
So, let's make like Mike's watch and dive in!

WOUND OF THE WEEK: Oh Ava hires bodyguards who rough up Nikolas. Ava is distraught and gives him a little sexy-nursing!! whoot!! The icepack was cold but this scene was hot! Oh yeah, it was all because Ava has a restraining order out on Nikolas. Forgot that part lol.
SPINNER OF THE WEEK: Yes, it's random. The scene was kind of random given the week we are in but anyway, Austin is trying to get Ned to have Leo see a specialist. I recognize signs of Autism..and I think that's where they are going. Seems like Ned may recognize some things but Olivia doesn't want to know. I am interested in this story...I only hope they keep with it and it's not just filler.
MAKE OUT OF THE WEEK: I admit...it wasn't pretty and it wasn't 'hot'...but you know what? It sealed the deal. Jason admitted his feelings for Carly and Carly admitted her feelings for him. Did they love other people in the meantime? Sure did. If Sonny hadn't have died would they have given into their feelings? Nope. That's why I like it. Their relationship was always an undercurrent ...always something that drew them together. We all know they were there for each other no matter what. Sorry if I think this is just overdue. Carly was scared of it. Jason--who knows about Jason. He's just the guy who's in the moment. Does it make perfect sense? Hell no. That's why it's great TV. Plus the fact the person they profess to love the most (Sonny) is still alive and breathing. Heh. Jason is going to feel that pain the most.
NOT NEEDED OF THE WEEK: So, do I have any bitching of this story? Oh heck yah. WHY IS the whole town propping up these two so much? It's GAGGING. It's over-kill. It's just madness. Was it to tip Carly's doubt over? Well, we didn't need that ish, thank you. ESPECIALLY not from Monica. They already had their talk. We didn't need another one. Nope. Robin mention, AJ mention. Nope. Acting like Carly and Jason were always destined for this. Nope. The story was telling itself. All the people fawning over those two killed the vibe many times.
TRUTH BOMBS OF THE WEEK: I have mixed feelings on this. I would have played the whole "Nixon Falls" saga so differently (and so much shorter) that it's hard to grasp on to the end-game that's unfolding now. It's hard to take that Jax, after finding out Sonny is alive and well would even entertain the idea of listening to Nina's loony rantings about her reason why she's covered it up. Yeah...he cares about her but SONNY FKING CORINTHOS IS ALIVE!! I mean? Call the press!! Jax made all the points: He has a family. he's not really "Mike" and oh by the way, you're living in a fantasy land. Nina finally agrees to tell MikeSon and Jax agrees to let her do it herself. Good Lord. What? Ok, well...we all know Jax is dumb so I guess it fits.
ASS OF THE WEEK: DAMN IT! Just when you think he's gone, he's like a boil that just rises up again! On Friday, for the last scene, we think Sonny's coming in the door and...... it's....it's... HIM. WHY. Oh why. Is he going to kidnap Nina so she can't tell the truth to Mike? Will he use her as leverage to get the baby? Don't know, don't care. Unless he starts killing people it's just not worth it. Well, maybe HE gets killed--then yes, totally worth it.
GAS OF THE WEEK: So, Curtis, Jordan and Portia end up in the same spot, looking for the same guy. Tying in Drew and Naomi's killing. It's the same house layout they've used since the old Spencer house was up. Same basement door. I think it's a troll move, but?? Anyway, Goon is there, knocks out Jordan... gas leak... Curtis fight... and they end up back at GH with Jordan intubated and kidney not doing well. The point of all this? Like I said---to tie in Hayden/Mother; Drew and Crighton-Clark stories and..oh yeah. One more thing. It seems Curtis is kinda loving Jordan again? I mean? What was all that? Oh!! I know!! Portia was going to tell Cutis that Trina is really his kid and THEN she can't because Curtis might still love Jordan!! Ohhhhh, got it. :eyeroll: COME ON. Not fair.
JUST MAKES WUBSY HAPPY OF THE WEEK: Oh my goodness. I'm just putting this in here because I DO love the Phyllis MikeSon connection. I really REALLY hope Phyllis comes to PC and nurses there. We can use her. PS the actress is on "Clickbait'!! Playing Ruby.
PERFORMER OF THE WEEK: Oh give it up for this gal! WOW.. Cynthia was just perfect, just saving so many scenes. Nina's pain was palpable. Even though it's a complete fantasy built on lies, she wants it so bad she almost makes us want it. Mike IS a better version of Sonny (although dull) and Mike IS someone she can just escape into. Delusional? Sure but still heartbreaking. I've always wondered how Michelle would have done this story but now I can't see anyone else acting it. Nina is finally Cynthia's to me. Bravo.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Trina is all of us when we look at Esme.
Jordan got gassed in a house and knocked out; is in the hospital ..Curits is sad
People figure out Naomi/Hayden and the Drew mess is connected
Jax finds Nina...and "MikeSon" in Nixon Falls; tries to talk sense into her
Nina cries. Wants Mike to herself.
Mike doesn't want the past; he only wants the future
Ava gets ready to leave PC; serves a restraining order on Nikolas
Trina tries to figure out why Esme would use the name "Lauren" and not "Kiki"
Gladys doesn't want to move out of Brando's apartment
Four of the Families are going to attack the Corinthos' Warehouses during the wedding
Maxie wants more of a say in how Brook is rearing Bailey
Austin talks to Ned about taking Leo to a specialist
Peter finds his way back to Nixon Falls
SPOILERS : Peter makes a mess at the Tan-O, Drew plans and escape and It looks like the WEDDING will take place next week. More spoilers on Diagnosis Daytime.
I'm ready to rumble!! I think that Carly and Jason do say their vows and the reception goes on. Gladys seems to be in the middle of some mess but there's no spoilers with the bombs going off as of yet. Will Ms Wu take over the city? We can only hope. Rumor has it the Tan-O is on fire-- did Peter set it? Personally next week should be a good one because of the chaos coming. There will be a bit of Anna/Valentin/Drew stuff going on that I'm not caring about just yet. Get the whole scorched earth thing going. Just know I hope to be giddy over the soapy-ness of it all. I hope you join me for the ride!?
