It was a decent week on the show if somewhat choppy. Usually when I start the Sunday Blog I have a clear beginning. Hard to remember all that happened since last Monday!! I'll give it a go though!
Did you think the title was referring to Cam and Joss? Oh this is Disney, people! That's not happening until we've talked about it to death, did research and made 800% sure "the time is right". Silly rabbits.
BIG thank you to @Flutterby on twitter without whom I would have no screen cappies!
WU OF THE WEEK: OH Ms. WU!!! BRAD is your nephew and you want him outta jail! HOORAY!! WHAT!!?? Twitter couldn't have been happier. Sonny doesn't want to help but he won't interfere with is parole hearing. Michael's pissed. Who cares? FREE BRAD!!
TAROT CARD READING OF THE WEEK: Yes, we had a few Greek-Wine Cellar scenes. Peter is trying to convince Britt to work with him so he shows his power over Drew. How? He threatens Jason and cuts himself in the arm. This whole thing started out promising and now? Unless it all gels together it's just messy. I basically want Drew to start stabbing and not stop.
|The BEST PLACE ON EARTH...|
WUBS FINALLY HAS A SHIP OF THE WEEK: And, I couldn't be happier. My last real "giddly" ship was NAva back in the day. Before that it was Olivia and Johnny so...dang!! Anyway, Mike and Nina were ok in Nixon Falls but it was--Nixon Falls. Isolated and just weird. BUT I guess all my frustration with that paid off a bit because it set the basis for what is happening now. Sonny is absolutely trying to recreate what he had at the Tan-O with Charlie's Bar. It will be his man-cave. Hell, he even wants Nina to come in!! ("For Phyllis' sake..wink). The dialog is so good. Maurice and Cynthia are playing a quiet game of memory and romance. Squee! Sonny was even late for a 'date' with Carly because he was behind the bar talking to Nina just like the olden days!! I'm hoping Phyllis is on a lot as well. Make that place a hang-out. Sonny, move Badger Bob there. Wubs Seal of Approval! #SINA
PARDON ME OF THE WEEK: Alexis is walking out!! As much as I enjoyed the whole "Spa Jail" I'm happy she's free. Shawn's living at her house--and he can COOK!! Yes. Scenes please. Also, Harmony seems to be mucho interested in her wellbeing. Like.. really interested. Hmmm....
SURPRISE OF THE WEEK: It was Liz' birthday!! We had a little cake, a little Franco-reflection and Scotty passing Cam a condom. What more could you want from a party?
"READY, SET...NO" OF THE WEEK: And, just when Cam and Joss were going to give into temptation, it was stopped because of a wooden spoon and some doubt. The wooden spoon was on the couch, the doubt in the head. Was Joss doing this just because Esme made her feel like a freak for being a virgin?? Personally, they talked about it SO much and had SO many condoms around I really didn't care. I'm a teen of the 70's. Soaps were way different back then on this subject. It's a soap. Not an afterschool special but.. there we are.
THE SCORPIO FACTOR OF THE WEEK: So mixed reactions to this. Ned and Olivia lovers lost their damn minds. Robert and Olivia shippers were swooning. Myself (With no pony in the ring) saw it as a really great conversation and bridge to Olivia's understanding of communication and accepting that her son may need help. Both Ava and Robert helped this couple realize that Olivia was acting out of fear. Sometimes you take your worst ish out on the one closest to you. It takes a different perspective outside of that relationship to see the clearer picture. Robert was fantastic in these scenes and knew Olivia looked at him as an escape from Ned and not much more. Ned is trying hard... got a doggie pic for her and everything. Hopefully, this is all on the mend. I do like Olivia and Ned being the "couple" of the Q Mansion.
JELLY OF THE WEEK: Spence's face when "Cam and Trina" are mentioned in the same sentence. Heh.
PSYCHO OF THE WEEK: We knew she had it in her, now we have proof. Esme, fresh from a glam make over (big improvement, imo) went to talk to Trina about staying away from Spencer. Trina was rational and calm. Esme seemed to be until she stepped in the hall and we see her rage in a blood-stained palm.
PCPD MOMENT OF THE WEEK: They don't get them often so when they do, it's twirling time!! Chase is starting to put those pieces together about the baby and here's hoping he gets the goods before Valentin figures it out. Why? Because for once, I'd like to see a detective actually DETECT.
RUSE OF THE WEEK: Brook Lynn and Maxie employed "Kip" and actor to impersonate her baby daddy so that Gladys would drop the whole thing. "Paulie" managed to get Gladys to give back the credit card and shut up. It was all in all, a cute caper.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Britt watches Drew cut himself open. Love this---it's what I do when anything gross comes up on TV. Let me just say that Kelly made these scenes bearable. Full stop.
MUSICAL GUEST OF THE WEEK: GH director, Phideaux Xavier made his music known at The Savoy this week. I personally loved it because I'm an alternative music fan and it was so '80s sounding! The backstory all had to do with cancelled bands, last minute fill ins and even a little of Brook Lynn's old music manager, Linc. Why? All to lead up to the Mystery Hat Man reveal. Here's hoping it's a goodie!

SPOILERS OF THE WEEK: We finally find out who Hat Guy is (hopefully on Monday), Tuesday is the Photo Ark Exhibit at the Gallery Carly and Phyllis connect. Get them all on Diagnosis Daytime!
WUBS SUGGESTIONS OF THE WEEK: I have some so here it goes. Esme really should be trying to be an Influencer on social media. Think of the possibilities. Hell, you could even have product tie-ins to help the budget. I can so see her getting a ring-light and doing some MakeUp-True Crime readings!! Phyllis should be related to someone on the show. Pick someone. I still say she and Stella could be great together. (Where IS Stella?). Once Cassadine Island is done, it's done ok? The show is doing great on just the other stories going on. No more mind-mapping. Thanks. Get Victor and Val going on challenging Nik to all that is Cassadine.
That's it!! Hope you have a happy Sunday. I'm enjoying the show a lot. It certainly has a lot of parts to the puzzle and stories. If you don't like one thing, you can tune in for another. Cheers!
