Oh, sad week, right? Not sure there's anything else to say about it because it was permeated with um... not great stuff. Many were taken aback because this happened during the holidays. Some, like me, appreciates all the drama and were wowed by the performances. GH timeline is a lot of love-hate right now but people are talking about it! Right?
Grab ya grub and let's go go ...
PETER SORROW OF THE WEEK: "Why does an innocent baby have to die and Peter get to live"? asks Elizabeth. Or rather, the ENTIRE GH AUDIENCE. First you had us think he might be dead by poison. Then, Elizabeth is all ready to cut the P in the ER. But noooooooo, Finn stops her. Damn. It would have been a great story for Liz I think. And she'd never get to jail because this is GH and come on. It would have been epic.
DADDY SORROW OF THE WEEK: Marshall can't catch a break. I mean, you let your kids think you're dead for years and years and when you show up with no good reason they ghost you? Oh man...that's cold.
THE MILDEW SORROWS OF THE WEEK: First Willow gets all angsty at Brook for "sleeping" with Chase and lying to everyone when she's the biggest faker-liar going. I can not WAIT for the truth to come out and I hope Brook rubs it in her sanctimonious face and never forgives her! Second up? Michael all in Brad's space for being in the Metro Court eating his first free breakfast. HELLO, it's a public place, butt out bread-boy. Alas there is a sorrow for Michael and it comes when Queen Wu stands up and puts him in his place. :clapping: I so hope they give her real claws and not just fake-ones. In other words: I hope Wu is a Helena.
WUBS DAVIS-DREAM SORROW OF THE WEEK: Damn it! Alexis already gives up on working with Sam in their PI business. That lasted ONE scene. Alexis is super sensitive right now and everything just made her feel badly. She runs out and meets Harmony in the park. They are going to lunch! Oh! Wait a minute, that can't happen because of Krissy and Dawn of Day? What. Well, get Diane in here to help her out then!
OUR SUFFERING CARLY SORROW OF THE WEEK: Could she BE anymore places?? Oh she wasn't on one day--I think Wednesday. Next day? RIGHT THERE!! IN all the business.
BLAZER SORROW OF THE WEEK: Chase and Finn looking all Ford Brothers in the sauna --check. Chests all glistening with sweat...check. Woman and man get trapped in said sauna--check. USUALLY resulting in something, right? Nope. Brook Lyn did manage to get her coat off but KEPT HER BLAZER ON? WTF. They are trolling us now. Some people are speculating she's pregnant again. Ok, if that is true, there was "Steam" all over that place. AT LEAST LET HER GET OUT OF THAT DAMN JACKET FOR ONE MINUTE! Oh, and Chase and she almost kissed but didn't so thanks for nothing.
PAST DUE SORROW OF THE WEEK: Elizabeth finally got to talk about losing Franco in a more expanded manner this week but.. guess what? A 45 second chunk with Britt was left out!! Yep..leave it to Frank's editing and there you go. Liz is still wearing her wedding rings. Jason is gone too and there's no scenes yet with Jake ??? Next week we will see her with Drew finally but it sucks he didn't find her from day one. Y U Hate Elizabeth so much?
BABY SORROW OF THE WEEK: Not a lot to say about this other than the stellar performances all around. Sofia Mattsson should get all the awards. Yes, she's an actress but playing the mother of a dying baby when you just had a baby has to be double duty. They did a good job with coming to the realization of letting him go; everyone around them pitching in advice and shoulders. Still in the end, it was the two of them that made the hard choice. I liked the Sonny talk to Sasha, it fit perfectly. What didn't fit? Carson looking on at the end to the weeping couple. Not needed. If anything it should have been Gladys looking at them. Mike comes down from the heavens and takes baby Liam Mike up with him. He's our resident St. Peter now.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Heh... Britt defying Ms Wu and just rejoicing in the BRAD of it all!! I LOVED it. They were vintage Britt-Brad. Wu also should know Britt's pedigree. She's a Faison after all!!
PROP OF THE WEEK: Couldn't go a day without a Jason mention but at least this was a goodie. Vintage keychain Jason gave Carly back in the 90's. She and Sonny hung it on the tree.
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
Drew, Scout and Sam celebrate the season in the Q kitchen
Elizabeth gets thisclose to killing Peter but... GH
Liz and Finn may or may not date, I'm not even sure
Carly and Sonny reflect on Christmas
Aunt Stella knew Marshall was alive the entire time
Baby is brain-dead; painful decisions are made and Liam is taken off machines
Mike takes Liam to the next realm.
Willow is mad at Brook Lyn for sleeping with her fake husband
Olivia and Ned take Leo to the neurologist
Nina tells Olivia to mind her own business
Gladys has an emotional scene with Liam ...and Carly
Brad is on Parole!!
Wu tells Michael to back the hell off
SPOILERS: I think Jane Elliot may be back for Jason's funeral??? Finn, Violet and Anna have a tea party, gathering at the Qs and a tree lighting. So....basically Christmas week.
That's a wrap! Love it or hate it, GH has all the pathos of a great soapy drama. It seems like Martin and Laura are taking the slow-boat back to Port Charles. Next week should be pretty all the holiday stuff. See you then! Cheers
