Well, Victor's PLAN was put in motion and all was revealed. Where? Aboard the Haunted Star; cursed by Helena and given to Luke and Laura on their wedding day. Full Circle? Well...almost.
You know I have a lot to say about everything so settle in and lets go to the galley for some grub!
My alternate title was: The GOONIES because damn, there were a LOT of guys hanging around being all goons with a gun!!
Almost everything that happened was on the boat so bear with me if I skip over a lot of that drama. They escaped and somehow are making it to open waters via the St. Lowrance Seaway. Why the Coast Guard couldn't find a medium rogue yacht in the middle of April is beyond me--but DRAMAZ!
TEARS OF THE WEEK: Oh, Valentin--so so sad over Anna. It's ok, we all knew she wouldn't die. Even when she was dead a couple of times she wasn't dead. And...the new Charlotte? I guess they wanted to age her but ..wow, she really was um.. nervous? Yes, Anna woke up and is already figuring out what happening with Victor. By the way--the PLAN? Did NOTHING. LOL. Victor got the necklace and ..welp! All that time and cover-up really amounted to zippo.
GLOW UP OF HE WEEK: Um. .. protein shakes and working out ....or.....? I mean wow.
STOWAWAY OF THE WEEK: Trina, skulking around the ship! There's plenty of time for some romance and old fashioned GH "adventure" for Sprina fans ahead. Trina also basically saved everyone by giving out the location of the ship. So... On to Venezuela!
NANNY OF THE WEEK: Meet Jane. Baby wrangler.
PLAN OF THE WEEK: Ok, here it is: Victor is continuing Mekkos' dream of having a more perfect world. He's gathered the 'faithful' somewhere and is taking his family and Dr Obrect to a location where he has a pathogen. Then, it will be released and kill everyone but the people he wants to be alive and then they repopulate. Okayyyyyyyy. Drink some more buddy because this sounds wild. The Ice Princess had the code to the hidden bunker. I have a feeling we will be IN that bunker for a long time. *sigh*
DEJA VU OF THE WEEK: If anyone remembers Mikkos; conversation about the weather station back in the day, it was around a table a well.
DEJA VU TWO OF THE WEEK: Trina in the control room reminded me of Laura on her adventure. They actually had Laura telling her what to look for and to give coordinates. "After all, I got that ship for my wedding gift"!
DEJA VU THREE OF THE WEEK: As @ChrisRHood pointed out on Twitter, not only did Robert and Laura get Victor ...Laura is wearing a hot pink gown!! Hmmmm Interesting!
WUBS FAVE MOMENT OF THE WEEK: OMG, when the Victor told Spencer he would be going without food, the goon picked up a strawberry and ate it in front of him. Heh..
MILLOW BONE MARROW ALERT OF THE WEEK: I've been reporting on this status for months and months. Now? Willow, you're fu*ked! Obrect's gone and.. welp. We are having a wedding "tomorrow". Spoilers say like the 26th so one day is going to last a lifetime kids. :eyeroll:
BLONDE TO BLACK OF THE WEEK: Brook Lyn to Maxie: "You're at the hairdressers? Get over here"! She did mention her hair and that she liked it. Kirsten had posted pics on IG of the change so most of us knew. I would have loved to see people's reactions that had no idea this was coming!!
NO ONE CARES OF THE WEEK: Yeah.. sorry. No ONE.
WEEK IN A WUBSHELL:
Victor takes Dr. Obrect, Spencer, Ace, Several Goons, A nanny and stowaway Trina out to sea.
Victor outlines his plan for releasing a pathogen to kill everyone but his "chosen"
Trina manages to call to shore and they find out the coordinates for the Haunted Star
Cody Bell is arrested for stealing Glady's bracelet
Millow finds out Liesl is missing and so is her marrow
Sam bails Cody Bell out
Sonny doesn't care if Dex and Joss are going out
Esme's head hurts
Anna wakes up
Maxie dyes her hair
Brook Lynn rushes to Chases' review meeting
I don't know folks. I have such mixed feelings. I'm still not happy with how the Nurses Ball went (or didn't go) and the fact that Victor only has 3 hostages (yes, Trina's there but she wasn't chosen by him) is frustrating. I wish he would have brought the Davis Clan (all Cassadines) and Ava. Why? He is secretly in lust with her and she'd be a good companion. I don't want to see the same goons and people for weeks. There will be a rescue (Holly and I think Felicia) but.. ugh. I don't think Laura is physically going there and Robert has been in and out of this story like a ping pong ball. Anyone going to tell Mac? Where's Taggert?
As for the other stories, they don't really hold interest. The Willow dying saga has lasted FAR FAR too long. Do I want to see the wedding? Meh. Do I care about Crew? Nope. Sonny is inserted wherever they can place him. Brook and Chase are doing the most boring dance EVER with this on/off/mad/angry/guilt story.
Holly's coming. Helena will make a brief appearance and I guess I have to sit tight to see everything unfold. In the early 80s "adventures" on Soaps were novel. They've been done to death. Most of us watch great dystopian shows that are streaming. This feels clunky and just.. blah.
