I think the dialog department must stay awake at night typing because this show has so many characters with SO many words!! LOL I've peeked at other soaps and GH by far, beats them out in the narrative department. Sometimes that's a good thing-- sometimes not so much. Great movement on canvas this week with good humor so I was a happy camper.
Grab ya coffee or beverage of choice and let's do this!
The ties that bind. Father's sons... Mother's and daughters... prisoners and groupies... husbands and wives... the past and the present. GH was full of it this week!! I especially liked the movement of everyone. No longer to we have people in rooms of just 2 for the whole show. I've noticed way more people in scenes lately. They popped for some extras too!
BEGINNING OUR STORY IN GREECE....
ACID ATTACK OF THE WEEK: Oh yeah... Obrect using the materials at HAND throws it on Peter. YEAH everyone!! Well, until that idiot makes it back into the boat-house and causes chaos.
HARPOON OF THE WEEK: It's not often I can say "harpoon" ...which is a delightful word!! Anyway, after dousing Peter with acid, Dr. O flees to the boat house and Britta, thinking she's an intruder, shoots her in the sternum. Hopefully not a life threatening injury because I can't live in a world without Obrect.
WUSSY OF THE WEEK: Even Britt was begging him to let loose. Um, Jason didn't take the shot!! WTF!! St. Jaysus of Jaysus didn't take the shot that could have freed everyone? Um.. derp. He actually sets down his gun and now we have to watch Petra for another how many weeks? Color me depressed.
BACK IN THE LAND OF PORT CHARLES:
GIDDY OF THE WEEK: Well, this was a delight!! Carly was actually happy for Sam, showing her happiness and doing it in an INSIDE VOICE!! WOW!! Sonny also approves of Dante and Sam. It was a cute scene full of champagne.
UT OH OF THE WEEK: Um.. Olivia!! We know you're in the cups but... !! And poor Nedly. After funding and entire National Geographic show for you and buying you a cute pic from the Gallery, sees this?? Thank goodness Robert knows how to take a punch. A note about the painting Ned gave Olivia. There's a scene where she gets very drunk and dials the Animal shelters to give money because she sees a really sad commercial. It's hysterical. I couldn't find the clip on You Tube but here's a link to Twitter to watch: CRYING FOR DOGS
PUNCHES OF THE WEEK: Who beat the living daylights out of Joey Novak? Most assume it's Sonny. We say Mystery Hat Guy lurking and looking at Joey on the docks. He must be some OG style mobster that knows how to use brass knuckles or something. I didn't even see a baseball bat!! Anyway, Sonny takes advantage of the situation, tells Novak to give him his territory and wants him to disappear. Sonny got to puff out his chest and talk about "hubris" and pretend he's still a giant gangster. We know Mike's in there, so keep trying!!
WORSHIP OF THE WEEK: So, Esme is in volunteer mode to be close to Ryan. Is she his daughter or his groupie? Based on Harmony's talk about being in the cult, I'm thinking she's some serial killer wanna be. Notice how she's trying to get Cam, Joss and Spencer into a cabin together? That's ax-murderer material. I'm here for it.
TALK OF THE WEEK: Ok, if you read historical romance, you see what happening here. In a nice web of what's expected as opposed to what is wanted, Spencer is drawn to Trina in ways he doesn't yet understand. No one has really spoken to him as bluntly as she. He wants her approval. He already has a girlfriend that he talks about and seems to care about so why this? Oh that's the beauty of these types of love stories. Slow burns and realizations that come with time. Trina is saying words rarely heard by female soap characters: I'm worth better; I don't need anyone by myself and DO BETTER. :clapping: Love her.
BIZZARO OF THE WEEK: Oh, Elizabeth had the strangest week. First, the writers do great and remember she is an artist who did do some police sketches at one time. She draws a pic for Portia who uses it to identify Hat Guy as the same person that came into GH and also asked questions about Curtis at the Savoy. SO far..so good. BUT! Then in a weirdly edited segment, Liz is suddenly talking to Carly about Nina and how she should get revenge. Why? Because Nina kept Sonny away from his family. (which she sure did with Jake Doe/Jason back in the day) "I would seek revenge on whoever hurt my family"...and gives a sinister look. There was a spoiler for the day that she was supposed to be talking to Terry so I can only imagine whatever triggered this was left on the cutting room floor.
PAROLE OF THE WEEK: Alexis gets sprung by our governor of NY and she's a little stunned. Everyone was telling her to take the deal and now, it was just handed to her. I'm hoping Shawn and TJ/Molly stay at the Lakehouse with her!!
DEAL OF THE WEEK: So, after the whole "in the van' trying to record Nikolas, Shawn decides to take the money he's offering and call the Hayden thing off. I think the writers wanted it DONE with if you know what I mean (wink). Shawn gets a huge chunk for a "non-profit" and is free to go out and investigate Naomi's death. Hopefully from Alexis' lake house :)
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Give it up for Nicholas Chavez. Way to own the character of Spencer! Wow...just a really great scene. Normally when guys cry it can go one of two ways; over done or cringy. This was neither. It fit the dialog perfectly and was executed with a chef's kiss. Much to my surprise, Spencer is giving up the "title" and fortune after his talk with Aunt Alexis and mostly, Trina. The best part of this? Spencer's developing depth of character He's not a one-note spoiled rich kid. Hopefully we will be in the front seat for his journey on his own.

That's a WRAP! You think we'll have the Trivia Contest?? I'm also wondering what Esme's next move will be once she finds out that her Prince gave up everything. Laura is due to come home. I'd like to see Sonny deal with the fact he just took over a giant chunk of DRUG Territory from the Novaks. I mean...you know Sonny... Drugs? The horror!! Hopefully Mystery Hat Guy will out himself soon too. Sprina are the highlight for me lately.
See you soon! Cheers!!
See ya during the week!
