good things happened this week. First
and foremost….LUKE IS BACK!
In Roy’s own words, “Good to see ya’!”
Nothing thrilled me more this week!
The most anticipated moment of my summer and I was not disappointed.
There is no need for me to mock Luke’s disguises because Roy did a
pretty good job of that. Luke has
been a fugitive from justice for many years; I find it extremely difficult to
believe that he is not an expert at evading the cops/FBI/interpol/WSB or any
other initials that may be looking for him.
That little fire tale that Roy spun for Luke was cruel and heartless
considering Luke thought that’s how his son “died” last year.
Luke lost a point when he asked about flea before he asked about his wife
(YES, I SAID HIS WIFE!!!) and his children, but I take solace in the fact
that it is easier to get the small talk out of the way first and that’s all
flea is…. small talk. His voice
was also softer when he asked about Laura, so he gained back the point he lost.
Roy started out strong this week sans his Bobbie attachment, but when
started in on Luke about things that were over and done with about 20 years ago,
I wanted to smack him. He told
Lucky to get over it, so should he! Laura
was the victim. She forgave him. Everybody else just shut up about it. I’m on the edge of my seat now wondering if Luke will
manage to escape the two interpol agents at his door, or if that’s how he
actually makes it back to PC. A
Friday cliffhanger, once again I must say that being spoiler free rules! I loved the newly shaved head and the crack about eating his
pet monkey. Roy and Luke are good
together, but it made me miss Robert.
Angel is still
enjoyable at this point, but Drag Queens? I
love Alexis, but really give me a break! One
photo and people are manufacturing an underwear line and dressing in drag?
The reporter, GreasyChris, should really rethink his interview tactics,
because I seriously doubt any other star will want to give an interview knowing
he can’t be trusted with items that should be “off the record”.
MyNed and Alexis have lost their collective minds for walking away
giving that cameraman the opportunity to switch the tapes.
Everybody saw that coming and they should have been more savvy than that.
I can’t wait to see the next poster of Alexis….back arched, siting on
Ned’s lap, Ned’s face buried in her cleavage.
It’s time for this story to move on, even as much as I’ve enjoyed it.
Ned and Alexis both have bigger things to worry about.
For example, a nephew or cousin being involved in concealing a copsicle,
a dead brother (-in-law to be) who never got a memorial service, a (an almost
step) daughter who should be starting her first week of first grade.
And, oh yeah, let’s not forget somebody still needs to pick a wedding
the positive side, I did think it was funny that when Alexis climbed on Ned’s
lap, they almost flipped the chair over. The
champagne and chocolate covered strawberries were a nice touch.
That’s a Nexis trademark, which goes back to the beginning of their
relationship. Somebody at GH is
paying a little attention, at least.
Finally they are being given enough airtime to be moved from the Miscellaneous
evil little snicker you may be hearing in the background of all the Stefan/Chloe
scenes…that’s me, so pay no attention.
I love this story. Give me
more, more, more! Stefan is amused
by Chloe’s determination to get off of the island and he knows there is no way
off. Chloe says she’s awful at strategy games (Aren’t all Barbie’s?) but a
few weeks ago she and Alexis were laughing over the fact that Ned is so bad at
Gin that neither of them will play with him.
Actually, they weren’t as annoying as I had anticipated, but not enjoyable
either. Mac’s sudden 180 about
Felicia hit out of the clear blue. All
summer he’s been preaching that he wants to move on, then 24 hours before
heading to Colorado he decides that they might be able to make it work.
I can only speculate that the writers did this in order to set up a big
gasp in the courtroom later when Felicia reveals that she is Luke’s alibi and
Mac’s entire case is shot to hell. Once
she returns to PC, she just needs to stay away from Luke and maybe I’ll move
her into the Miscellaneous thoughts rather than Queen of the Lowlights.
I’m bored by this story and each member of the gang is on my last nerve
separately and as a whole. Liz was
right to call Jason. Lucky’s not
only losing time, he’s lost perspective if he thinks he can just take a swing
at Jason. Jason would mop the floor
with that perfectly highlighted do of his.
Nike is more amused by Gia than aggravated by her antics.
Gia is a bitch and Emily should have put a beat-down on that girl for
showing up at the Q mansion uninvited. Later
her director like comments at the rave house made me want to pop the top on that
can ‘o’ whoop ass for the rest of the gang or perhaps lure her to the
parapet. Juan needs to get over his
Emily and Lucky jealous fixation. He’d
still be sucking face with Emily every two minutes if he hadn’t taken a
breather to suck face with Sherry. I
did think it was hugely amusing when Juan said that they should bring DeadTed
into the rave after I made the comment earlier in the week that Guza had been
watching Weekend at Bernie’s again. I
suggested that Lucky and Nik should cart him around at the rave, put a hat on
him, fix him a Luke special and watch all the chicks hit on him ala Bernie, then
Juan damn near suggested the same thing. GH
is good for a few laughs every now and then!
I’ll refer all you readers to last week’s column for my problems with
transferring DeadTed into Zander’s car, and add this week that Emily’s
colossally stupid idea of lurking in the parking lot will probably get them all
busted now, unless St. Jason shows up.
I just don’t care which way this story plays out.
Carly seems to be happy whichever guy she’s stuck with.
Sonny wants Carly, but not enough to speak up. Jason doesn’t want Carly, but will take her off Sonny’s
hands if he has to. Nobody is too
invested either way as far as I can tell, so why should I pick a side to root
for. I couldn’t help but enjoy
watching Carly getting kicked around by Sonny and Jason this week. She thought Sonny really wanted to marry her, then he said
only to keep her from testifying. She
thought Jason loved her, then he told her they’d never be “together”.
Ah, sometimes it does pay off to be a Carly hater.
to Roy: “Did the bat’s carcass
wash up yet?”
to Roy: “I’m telling you, if
you had a video of the ol’ lady whackin’ her son, he’d say it was me in
to Ned: “I promise if you want
this worn, you’re going to have to wear it.”
to Alexis: “I already have

to Chloe: “My mother is a
to Juan: “Now, if Emily decides
to dump you, it’s because of YOU.”
to badfrenchaccentdude: “Lurch!”
to Gia…I don’t remember the exact quote but something to the effect of
“L&B is a den of inequities.”
Lucky mocks me with his Shaggy-like attempt at growing facial hair and
wearing a green t-shirt. Where is
Foster when I need to complete the analogy?
It’s been two weeks since we last saw Andreas and I’m into serious
Rick the new bodyguard is nice eyecandy, but give me Johnny any day!
I loved the bed in Luke’s hotel room.
It looked like an antique, something you’d find in Prague.
Ok, so probably not in a hotel room, but I’ll gladly suspend that
Can we please get rid of Tammy and keep Jake?
Jake’s got that self-righteous indignation thing going on with AJ just
like Tammy, but Jake is far more entertaining.
She has more of an edge. I
Monica gets the FASHION DON’T AWARD this week for the pink see-through
shirt over the black tank. If I
were a patient, I would not have that much confidence in my cardiologist if she
came to the hospital dressed like that.
I’ll give Alexis the FASHION DO AWARD for looking great everyday.
Nobody actually stood out though.
Yellow is not Nik’s best color.
If TPTB really wanted to make me laugh, Ned would have put on that teddy
. . .. immediately after SHAVING that fuzz off his lip!
Something to remember when visiting Prague, the doors are thin enough for
interpol to hear a person talking on the phone.
Carly not only put her feet on the coffee table at the Qs, she had her
dirty shoes on Sonny’s couch. This
behavior is driving me crazy!
Hannah should quit running to AJ’s rescue every time somebody calls.
Getting her attention is all he’s after and she’s buying it hook,
line and sinker.
I like Alexis and Sonny as reluctant friends, so long as this doesn’t
turn into Alexis just being a sounding board for Sonny’s woes like she was for
Chloe all last year. Also, Jason
and Alexis were amusing at Jake’s. He
has made eyes at her more than once since hitting PC and she’s seems to bring
out a personality in Borg boy.
I seriously doubt that Liz&Lucky’s song “God must have spent a
little more time on you” would be on the juke box at Jake’s.
I’ve never found too many boy bands listed in a roadside bar.
Loved Reggie showing up twice this week, once in his goofy jammies.
Despite what Jason said to AJ this week, AJ is not responsible for Carly
losing the baby.
Edward spends half of his time blaming Alan and Monica for the mistakes
of their children, then told them this week that it’s time AJ took
responsibility for their own actions. Make
up my mind, please!
It was nice of TPTB to remember Tony this week and trot him out for ten
freaking seconds of airtime.
but certainly not least: GUZA IS GONE! I’ve been doing a Cousin Larry and
Balki “Dance of Joy” since I heard the news!
Sing with me now…”nah, nah,
nah, nah, hey, hey, hey, GOODBYE, nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, hey, GOODBYE”
! I want Patrick Mulcahey back,
whether he’s named head writer or he just re-assumes his role as
script-writer. Patrick seems to
understand character motivation and pays attention to history AND he knows how
to tell a damn story! I’m keeping
my fingers crossed. Lorraine
Broderick is ok with me too, but I know more about Patrick.
all this week folks! Stay away from
the spoilers, GH is more fun this way!
