Another week with things just whipping along!! For the most part, I did love the show. The Thanksgiving dinners were up to expectations. Yes, there was a lot of narration and Peter showed up but all in all entertaining!! So much happened, this might be another long one. I do include some ball-drops of those of you that are crabby on the show at this juncture so hopefully, everyone will have a good read.
Grab what ya got and settle in!!
NO TEARS OF THE WEEK: Sam was pretty much over Jason anyway when he boffed Britt and married Carly. They'd been apart awhile (due to his 'lifestyle") so when Drew came to tell her the news, she teared up but never really turned it on. What DID turn her on? Oh, Dante that's who!! Yep! They finally took the plunge. Grief Sex? I think not.
DADDY TEARS OF THE WEEK: Did Curtis shed any? Nah... Marshall did a bit when he told TJ the truth--that he was his grandpa. What happened after that? Curtis was all depressed so Portia moved the Thanksgiving dinner to The Savoy. Liz, Finn...the kids, Trina, Nina, Phyllis and TJ were all there. Molly? Who knows. Aunt Stella? Who would have made this dinner a blast? Still "recovering" from her stroke. So it goes.
UNICORN TEARS OF THE WEEK: Aw, Drew gives Scout a nice unicorn. She's a bit shy about the whole thing but it will work out. He also sees Dante and Sam "together" which is fine because he and she sure weren't when he left.
BABY TEARS OF THE WEEK: Valentin sure was having those water-works going!! Geesh... someone said he reminded them of Lucky back in the day. Yep. Sure did. This time Anna talked him down from the ledge and made him visit the Q house to say goodbye to Bailey. This was all well and good but Chase, Maxie and Brook had all discussed telling him the truth but for some dumb reason opted out. We see Maxie running from the kitchen saying "This has gone on long enough, lives are ruined"... UM, girl where ARE you going? You had a chance back there...Oh, never mind. Please get your Daddy and Uncle to get Peter transferred far far away. Or poison him yourself. There. Done.
MORE BABY TEARS OF THE WEEK: So, Brasha baby is born and Sasha goes to see him. They think once all the tubes are out and the cooling blanket is removed he will be ok. Britt explains he only needs one more test...EEG. Ut Oh. Hmmm... well Shriner's needs a tie in so?? Anyway, they name him Liam Mike and discuss name meanings for days. CarSon comes in and Sonny offers Sage advice. Brasha keeps saying "He'll be home soon, he's a fighter..." which to me is a red flag waving high in the air.
FRIENSHIP TEARS OF THE WEEK: I singled this out because I really liked the Anna-Sonny scenes. It was a surprising choice to have her deliver the news but it was done so well. Sonny was even Mike-Like with her so that was awesome as well. Oh! And he threw kitchen stuff all over!!
ST JAYSUS TEARS OF THE WEEK: I can't list them all here but everyone and their mother were crying about Jason. It was the week they found out he was "dead"..."YES!! really DEAD" said everyone. Even Carly seemed to come around to the fact he's buried in tons of rubble. It was all hollow because we as soap fans have been yanked around for years and years with back from the dead stories. Hell, Jason has been back himself. No body. So.. yes, Britt and Carly seem to have forged some kind of weird kinship over the Robin River (that's ROBIN'S BRIDGE, BITCHES!!) but we know better.
INVISABLE TEARS OF THE WEEK: No photo for this because someone was absent...who could it be? OH yeah..ELIZABETH. Usually I don't get into the fights about her character being dissed but this was GLARING. HOLY HELL. Don't tell me RH wasn't 'available' to at least have been at GH during some of this because she was at the "Savoy turkey dinner" Monday. Tell her then. Film a tiny side scene. ANYTHING. Drew should have found her. She's the mother of his first born FFS. By the time she does have her scene the whole peak of the story is over.
TURKEY TEARS OF THE WEEK: Oh, Valentin was angry. He ate some of the turkey, gave the rest to Annabelle 2 and told Brook Lynn she was the "Runt of the Litter" that couldn't sing. AHAHAHAHA. LOVED IT!! Plus, it got us our pizza.
ENTIRE GH TIMELINE TEARS OF THE WEEK: Why? PETER was back on. Good Gravy but overacting isn't even the word here. IS Wes trolling us all? I would hope he'd be slapped by the director if that was the case. Anyway, Austin stabbed him good while taking blood (is that DNA blood for Bailey? It was a weird close up). Stupid Peter was being taken for tests and then allowed to harass Nina in the hallway. "You're alive"??! He thought she burned up in the fire he set. Nina gave it right back to him and got in his Peter-Pumpkin Face. BUT THEN... ding dong. He mentions her falling in wub with Sonny-- and guess who's right behind? CARLY!! Oh what joy. I squeaked!! Ahhh, if I had to endure him on the screen, that was a great way to end it.
CHEERS OF THE WEEK: First of all, loved Sam's sweater. I usually never like what she's in so I must mention it!! Second, OMG but Sam wants Alexis to go into the PI Biz with her!! YES!! PLEASE!! Alexis isn't sure but they throw around "Davis-McCall or McCall-Davis" names. I hope this happens and Spinelli is a part as well. We could have some great stuff coming.
WUBS FAVE SCENES OF THE WEEK: I enjoyed every second of the Cassadine Thanksgiving!! LOOK at that family!! First Alexis has Spencer and Esme to dinner. Shawn is living there so he's in. Where are her girls? Well that's another ball dropped because Molly wasn't shown at the Savoy dinner and Kissy supposedly had "other plans". :eyeroll: Other than that it was glorious. Ava showed up with Nikolas and pie...Valentin pout-face came over and.. VICTOR entered!! OHH!! He basically told everyone to shut up and act like Cassadines and get over it. LOL. Magnificent. More please. And can they all live in Wyndemere?
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
The town finds out Jason is dead; Drew is alive
Drew sees Scout, gives her a unicorn
The Q's turkey is ruined by Valentin and Annabelle 2; Drew brings the pizza
Anna tells Sonny about Jason
Sonny tells Spinelli about Jason
Britt tells Carly about Jason

SPOILERS: Next week we will see: Laura! Martin! Brad!! Also Kristina Wagner is coming and she's on contract!! I saw a blurb that Lexi Ainsworth (Krissy) is also back but who knows for how long. Looks like Carly might find out about the MikeSonNina WUB from Peter on Monday. Willow and Michael return home to Chase being Bailey's daddy and news of Jason's death. Rumor has it Helena makes an appearance.
It's a wrap!! I think that having the expansion of the Cassadines is going to work out well. I'm hoping Curtis and fam finally get a story. Aunty Stella? Where are you?? As for Jason aka Steve Burton; don't miss him. It was one of those situations that well, I was ready for him to go. I'm also ready for you know who to go. Maybe that's our Christmas present? Peter all DOA under the tree.
