PHEW!! If I smoked, I would have had a cigarette or two after Monday-Wednesday's shows! Holy heck!! All Hell broke loose. Then we had a strangely inserted Thursday show and it came full circle on Friday.
When GH does endings, they are slam-dunk shanga a banga (I just made that up lol). Weeks, months, years finally give you a damn fine pay off. :clapping:
Not sure what you're drinking but grab it if you got it and let's go-go!
Where to even START on this?? I guess I'll go with the wedding aftermath to the Spoon Island shennanigans. Let's see how I do...
BOX O' PAIN O' THE WEEK: Aw, Curtis... So Sad. He talked to Portia about her lying. "You're a lying liar that lies"! Then he talks to his dear old dad about "She's a lying liar that lies". LOL. He did do a lot of shots at The Savoy and N'neka got some nice speaking parts. Nothing is really solved here and I'm sure Curtis will be moping around for days until the DNA test comes in.
BOX O' LOVE O' THE WEEK: On the other hand, Taggert came out as a loyal, caring and wonderful father in all of this. Real Andrews gave the performance of a lifetime while talking to both Trina then Portia. The dialog was spot on. Yes, he was angry but understood and most importantly, realizing that Trina WAS his daughter in every sense of the word. Really loved his scenes.
YOUNG WUB OF THE WEEK: The kiss heard around the Twitter feed!! People went insane. This was a very long awaited and well done series of lusty kisses. Spencer was also a gentleman and wants to wait to make the love when the time is right. Doesn't want to take advantage of Trina when she's in pain. That's some 2023 progress right there people! The two of them run off to Spoon Island where Spencer thinks Trina can be safe. Little do they know, they'll be headlong into the whole Esme/Heather/Ryan drama soon!
YOU JUST HAVE TO WATCH IT OF THE WEEK: I could try to go into detail about all that went down on Spoon Island but believe me, you're going to want to watch it. There were many moving parts and great dialog all over the place. Sante was figuring things out in England, Alexis got confirmation from the warden and the PCPD was even in the loop. People were finding out that Heather and Ryan were Esme's parents at the same time but in different places. Most editing was pretty good here because the scenes wove together well. (not counting the entire show on Thursday! LOL). Here are the highlights:
HOOK OF THE WEEK: Austin goes down Heather hooks him but she didn't put poison on the end so he will be ok. The best part of all this was watching him pop up, then go back down again after delivering some one-liners. So Todd of him! We all know that Ava wanted to move Nikolas but these two just didn't manage to do that.
PAPA BEAR OF THE WEEK: Ryan, Ryan Ryan.. you sure went out with a bang. Well, two bangs really. We first get some closure on Ava with you. Then Mac strolls out of the woods and shoots you when you go to grab her. "It had to be you" says Ryan. There in ends a long history of Chamberlain terror. I watched the body bag be zipped up. Many people including Kevin looked at the body and yet... yet.. we all know this is GH.
MAMA BEAR OF THE WEEK: Oh, Heather. You so wanted Esme to love you. Who does she run to when she comes back out of the woods? Laura. That had to hurt. Heather is cuffed and ready to go to jail when Esme is in the middle of birth.
GRANDMA BEAR OF THE WEEK: Well, Laura continues her awesomeness of just being Laura this week! She takes charge of being mayor, gets over to Spoon Island with Kevin and then helps deliver Esme's baby. :clapping: I'm saying it again: SO happy Laura is being an independent kick ass woman instead of her old weepy self . She was that far too long on this show.
ACE OF BASS OF THE WEEK: Another giant baby is born!! On an interesting note, Becky Herbst took to Twitter to tell everyone that there's an age limit to babies on set now due to COVID!! SO!! That's why the kids are giant! It's still funny and fun to watch. I think they are played by the same twins. They just swap out for Amelia and Ace. Spencer is playing the good big brother already. Awwww... I did get a vibe about all this because we know that Sprina won't be happy for long. Hmmm.. will he become so involved with baby Ace and Esme that he neglects Trina??
On to the BTEAM PARTS OF THE WEEK:
WE HAD TO GO THERE OF THE WEEK: ?? Well did we really?? Willow gets home and Carly's minding Wiley and GiantAmelia. We hadn't seen hide nor hair of Carly for DAYS AND DAYS so you know, it had to happen!! Willow and Carly have a cry about Willow's bone marrow mess and Michael fights with Sonny yet again. "You're done" says Sonny. Ok. Whatever.
DECISION OF THE WEEK: On the heels of Sonny telling Michael to go to hell, Dex is stupid enough to talk about the Pikeman shipment while Joss could listen. So dumb. Anyway, I was really hoping he was a fed but it appears not. After talking it over with his lady love, he decides to get Sonny on federal charges when the whole arms deal goes down. *sigh*. Does ANYONE THINK Sonny will go away to jail for any length of time?? Yeah, I didn't think so.
INSERTION OF THE WEEK: There was a strange encounter between Sasha and Heather. Sasha pretends to be her lawyer but really just wants to blast her about Brando's death. It could have been really good but Dante comes in right when things are getting going. This was also a catalyst for Cody to talk to Sam about.. summer camp (again). Like I said, just plain strange. By the way, it seems like Sam and Dante's kids are at camp Q for the rest of the duration.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Ava talking to Ryan about Kiki. Just serve up the Emmy already.
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:

Austin and Ava realize that Nikolas' body is still in the shed

Everyone wonders where Nikolas might be
Sasha pretends to be Heathers' lawyer, Heather confesses to all the Hookings
Dex lets Josslyn in on part of his 'secret" and decides to stay and finish the job.
That's a wrap!! I am in love with this SLIZ photo that Becky put up on Twitter. She's been on GH 26 years and Kelly 20!! SO many stories with these ladies. Still may fave is them drinking and burning Jason stuff on the docks!
It was a wild week on the show for sure. I really really looked forward to watching every day. Well, 4 out of 5 ain't bad!! The actors were all on their A Games. We had history closed on Ryan and all the players were there. Even Robert showed up Friday! We have the 60th delights coming soon and there's also going to be the "How much does Esme remember and When" story. Sprina is getting going and hopefully this Dex/Michael/Sonny stuff will end soon. Willow will be getting some marrow soon or will die. Nikolas is either rotting in the shed or he's been taken. We have two giant babies to coo at on our screens!! Oh, yeah..also, will the DNA test on Trina get done by Easter?? Hmmm....
Anyway, have a great rest of your day! See you Monday!! I do have a meeting right at 1pm so I hope I'm done in time to make the whole show.
