I so wish Soaps had enough money (like the old days) to use popular or old songs. Just watched the "Running Up That Hill" Stranger Things and realized how much it can add to anything. *sigh*. So!! This week was basically about the POOL and HORSE STALL convos and a big surprise on Friday. Well, I jumped!! Not sure about you?!!
So, I did an EYE SPY today--- because GH was full of things that were either an eye-full , a flashback or just plain eye-popping.
Most photos this week @Flutterby on Twitter; others are named! Thank you to all that screen cappy for us!
I SPY A HORSE IN A HOUSE: Welp!! My mouth was on the floor. Not only was there a new full set for a HORSE but it had a fireplace, spiral staircase AND a dining table!! I mean... who doesn't want to eat lunch in front of an equine? IT was hysterical. I like the Leo Therapy angle but...but... pffffft. It's bigger than Maxie's entire apartment! Animals are expensive and I wonder when we will see him again but maybe Cody moves into that place? Weird. Yet..fun?
I SPY FLASHBACK ZEX THIS WEEK: Nikolas thinking about Esme sex ..a LOT LOL!!! Esme had about 1 flashback, he had about 5!! Don't tell me it's just guilt. No sir... and I DO like how Esme is playing this. Just act like it was casual zex an let him stew a bit!!
I SPY DNA THIS WEEK : Carly! Well, she's in every scene, even trying to buy up some ELQ shares AND she flashes back to her DNA envelope. That should be on our bingo card. We all know something is up with Willow health wise and it's only a matter of time before she needs something from Nina. Kinda ironic when Nina's other kid gave up a kidney for Carly's kid, no?
I SPY MORE DNA THIS WEEK : Portia. Getting all angsty about the DNA of Marshall!! She's even meeting with a genetic specialist! Trina is so Curtis' kid. But we knew that when she said something to Jordan when they were trapped. Odds are even we get a flashback to that scene. OH! Wait.. NOPE! NuJordan!! Can't do it with old face in there! photo credit:
I SPY FINN BEING A COMPLETE MORON THIS WEEK: Um.. first you go interrupt Elizabeth at her Shadybrook sanctuary and NOW you think it might be a good idea to CALL HER PARENTS? How old are you? 15? Because, DUDE--read the damn room. Thank goodness Greg is there to put some sense into that daft brain.
I SPY NEW GUY: I'm at a complete loss. And to think that Josh let it be known in an interview he got a job after texting Frank. Yes, he's fun. He and Britt? Doing the Chem-Banter stuff but.. but... WHY?
I SPY THE OTHER NEW GUY: So.. this is supposed to be the tough guy Sonny hired for policing his business. Again.. Casting. PLEASE try to get people that don't look like each other. :eyeroll: Anyway, Michael is actually smart enough to have turned Dex into a double-agent against ol' Dad. Give the boy an ice cream!
I SPY THE BEST SCENE INSPIRED BY A MOVIE: OH MY GOD!! The Ryan thing ?? Be still my heart. And it was DONE SO WELL. Sorry, but I loved it. MORE of that kind of thing please. I did figure out it had to be a dream/fantasy when he was eating Mac's face but.. hell. Thank you to the writer that thought of it!! :clapping:
I SPY GROSSNESS: Um, Ryan is all happy that Esme got Nikolas in bed. Personally, I find this SO SOAPY. MANY people however, are appalled. Sorry but.. my 2022 viewership mind is saying GROSS but my 70's mind is saying OH HELL YAAAAS!
I SPY TYLENOL--ER...ASPRIRIN: So Gladys knocks aspirin out of Sasha's hand just as TempBrando walks in. What does he think? That she's back on the drugs. Gladys tries to cover but he still wants her to go to rehab. What sparked all this? Baby shoes that were delivered. Baby shoes size 12 that is. (they were GIANT!) photo thx to @pmekame
I SPY A DICHOTOMY: One the one hand, Ava figures out Spencer is playing Esme. On the other hand, WITH ALL THE HINTS IN THE WORLD this lady--this woman right here who's smarter than 1/2 the characters on the show DOESN'T KNOW Nik and Esmundo slept together? Come on, I do. NOT buy this!!
KUDOS OF THE WEEK: Wardrobe!! Whatever you're doing, or wherever you're shopping I LOVE IT! Great summer looks!! (all except Genie..please give her some summer stuff!!)
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
(many convos between many people!!)
Brad admits to his aunt Selina he kinda likes his job and wants to learn more
Britt is angry Brad took a video of her that went viral
Valentin appeals to Ned for a partnership
Michael hired Dex out from under Sonny to destroy him from the inside out
Britt and Dex have friendly banter at the pool
Carly and Sam talk about Esme
Carly and Drew talk about ELQ and Jason
Leo gets a horse and the horse gets a house
Trina decides to find evidence against Esme on her own
Trina has to face the Dean's Board and maybe be expelled
Portia finds out that Marshall has schizophrenia and...worries about Trina (we think)
Finn oversteps his boundaries and visits Liz at Shadybrook
Greg, Violet, Cam, Finn and the boys all go on a camping trip
Sasha is having a hard time with withdrawls; Gladys is sticking to her like glue
Dante and Brando are concerned about Sonny-Michael feud
Ryan has a fantasy where he eats Mac in front of Felicia
Ryan is happy Esme slept with Nik; He's furious she didn't tell Ava
SPOILERS FOR NEXT WEEK: Joss and Tri buy a clue and finally phone Spinelli, Camping Trip brings an old friend and Austin together and watch for exciting Carly and Sonny and Carly and Drew convos!!
So, GH was a bit boring in places for sure but the Michael reveal (hiring Dex) and Ryan fantasies were inspired. They made my week. I didn't mention how much I love Kelly and Parry together in scenes. They were GOLD in the hotel room the day after the pool-fall. So natural and dialog was just fun. Glad Dr. O was there as well!
I'm wondering about the stories involving Kristina Wagner: Ryan and Victor ...it's going to be so hard. I feel so badly.
Where is NLG? Geesh!! Molly/TJ-- you know, the usuals that I get mad about being absent. I think Cam/Joss are around a lot more as college is out for the summer. Speaking of summer--when are the summer stories starting? Is this it???
Have a great Sunday. See you Monday!
Ok...see ya!! In other news, yes, I'm in the middle of Stranger Things. BUT! Peaky Blinders dropped so I will on to that as fast as I can because My FAVE SHOW!!
