For the week of December 25th
I MENTION SPOILERS IN THIS COMMENTARY. IF
YOU ARE SPOILER FREE- - -TURN BACK NOW!!
was not the first time (hell it's not even the 10th time) that MyNed has told
Stefan in no uncertain terms that he does not like Alexis being mixed up in the
Cassadine affairs. Stefan repeatedly puts Alexis between himself and Hells and
Alexis is ALWAYS the one getting hurt (Sahara anyone?). From MyNedís point of
view he is completely on the mark about Stefan only caring about Alexis when she
can do something for him. After
that moron Jax convinced her to go chasing after Hells into LIBYA (yeah, that's
a safe place to be!) and subsequently crashed her in the desert, it was MyNed, V
and Jerry who located her. Stefan didn't so much as phone her when she returned
home. She had to summon Stefan to not
only tell him she was ALIVE but also to tell him she was done with the
Cassadines. His response was to say
"how like you to stir up something and not finish it." Yeah, nice to
see you too, brother. He also
wasn't speaking to her until he was accused and arrested for Katherine Bell's
murder (ahhh, the good ol' days). We
get to see the moments when Stefan genuinely cares for Alexis but Ned is never
privy to those times. MyNed
knew that Alexis would not approve of his telling Stefan to keep his distance.
That's why he didn't tell her what he was up to. He also knew that Stefan
would tell Alexis and Alexis would once again tell Ned that he cannot interfere
in her business, Cassadine or otherwise. Stefan
was wrong about Ned not "knowing" Alexis. He knows her all to well. He
knows that she will be all mixed up in this war between Stefan and Helena
because she's drawn to Stefan out of loyalty and a desire to maintain what
little ties to family that she's got. Ned was trying to protect Alexis by having
Stefan keep her out of the middle because Alexis won't stay out of it especially
once Stefan asks for her help. She won't refuse him.
will know that Ned is only trying to protect her, but she's going to be
aggravated. She'll get over though because she understands that it comes from a
place of love.
do love the Ned and Stefan being at war with one another, especially over
Alexis. Cassadines v. Q's makes for high drama and excellent entertainment.
Hopefully, it will add a much needed dimension to the Nexis relationship - -
-DRAMA! TPTB or TCSL (aka: Those Crack Smoking Losers,
thank you for that one Haley, I love it!) need to explore this more and stop forcing the Scoobies and newbies on me.
should explain to Alexis that getting married does not diminish a woman's
capacity as an independent person. It
solidifies a couple's commitment to one another. She does not have to lose her
identity when she becomes his wife, just as he loses nothing by becoming her
MyNed gives her hell this week, because this bolting at the last minute is
pissing me off! I think once he finds out about the shooting he'll soften,
hopefully she'll beat him to it and the fact that she could have nearly been
killed will make her realize everything I just said and she'll go to him. I
just want her to grovel and seek some counseling for all of these issues.
made it half-way through Wednesday's episode before I decided that Chloe and Gia
MUST DIE. I gave Chloe another chance because Stephen Nichols wanted this story
to work. I really tried.
I was nice while she was on the island, not talking too much and not
being chipper with MyNed and Alexis BUT I simply cannot tolerate her ANYMORE.
DIE CHLOE! I want blood, guts, decapitation, burning at the stake, whatever,
just no chance of her coming back in a few months with a bump on her head and
should die for all the reasons I've stated so many times before, but in this
particular instance for calling Helena a bitch. Itís about time for Helena to off somebody anyway, her
record is failing of late with all of these people surviving an encounter with
her. I chose Chloe and Gia as her
next victims, in any order, I donít care as long as they both disappear.
And, hey if she can throw Flea into the mix thatís fine by me too.
Roadkill Barbie defend AJ to MyNed after that stunt he pulled (and remember that
I love AJ too) was just too much! AJ didn't deserve a defense. I'm still
seething mad at AJ for MyNed and he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the
wedding! THEN watching her defend Stefan to the Q's made me think of even more
ways to watch her die slowly and painfully. The Q's have a RIGHT to hate the
Cassadines, even Stefan (remember the computer virus he tried to install in the
hospital computers?). Oh I hate her. I want her head on a pike ala the French
As for Gia, I've been pulling for the Queen Cassadine
to make her take a long walk off of one of those short piers we keep seeing all
time since the first day Gia met Mama Cass at the hospital. She's rude and
uncouth. At that time she didn't know what Helena was capable of or why Nik was
so damn rude. Now that she's been told about Helena you'd think she'd show a
little more respect or FEAR at least, but she's proven herself too stupid to
live. Hells should off her immediately or right after killing Chloe, whatever
suits her best.
rehearsal dinner was a very typical meal at the Q's. Iím glad the real Ned finally showed some spine and
served the lot of Ďem a steaming hot cup of shut the hell up!
Itís about time that he put a stop to all of the criticizing.
I want to know who is responsible for sitting Carly next to AJ.
Everybody should have seen that fight coming. Nevertheless, it provided the basis for the best scene of the
week when Alexis came back to the Q house and Ned was still waiting there for
her. Iím not really keen on the
idea of Sonny being Alexisí confidant. First
of all that means, that Iíll be subjected to more Sonny meaning more Carly and
the mere thought of that raises my blood pressure.
Second, I donít think itís reasonable for Alexis to be getting advice
from a criminal. Third, Sonny has at
least as many issues as Alexis. Iíd
much rather see Alexis going to Lila for advice.
AND SHALLOW OBSERVATIONS
the hell is up with Stefan's hair? Heís
starting to look like a Back Street Boy or maybe heís trying to look more like
Jax, either way itís unacceptable.
is toooooo yummie in sweaters! I think the wardrobe department is teasing me
until he wears that gray suit which I hate.
should be fired, immediately if not sooner.
That gag has lost its chuckle factor and is now just gag inducing.
As is the pizza schtick.
How many pelts did it take to make Carlyís most
hideous fashion mistake? We have
the fashion and the Farrah-hair, now all we need is the Bee Gees playing in the
background and a disco ball spinning and the time warp will be complete.
want all of the Scoobies to move to New York City to attend college and never be
seen or heard from again. They are
ALL on my nerves.
See yaí next week with an in depth wedding review.
