Spoilers I use for commentary are compliments
of Soap Zone and Carol Banks Weber:
Привет Мои Любимые!
It has been a marvelous week here in the
California foothills with even a spot of rain that left the world smelling
wonderful. Pity these spoilers stink like last year's cheese.
It's like a trainwreck I can't keep from watching.
What is definitely much more fun than a train
wreck is the new EOS gossip column by Karen H, the
Media Ho. I'm loving it!
We could pretty much call the next couple of
weeks "Hell Hath No Fury" and be done with it. Between Greenlee's
very justified fury at Ryan (although she does manage to get some Ryan
lovins before he breaks off the news to her that he intentionally let her
believe that she was a widow twice before the age of thirty) and
Tad's indignant rage at Di and Kendall and Greenlee raging at Erica and
Kendall's anger at Zach for his part in Ryan's faked death and Jack
sounding off at Ryan, there's plenty of piss off to going around Pine
I'm just pissed off
that the stories aren't really grabbing me. Having David Hayward
made a fool of every time he is on screen, having Adam and JR both
hoodwinked by the Carey women, with Julia as the new precious of the show
and never getting to see the characters I really do like to see, I am
starting to think of better things I can do with my time between noon and
1pm. Funny since AMC was always my favorite of the shows.
And that's all I got to say about that.
Why does Bo keep
informing Todd of the blow by blow on their murder investigation? Bo has
Todd visit the Llanview police department, as a sketch artist puts
together what looks like the killer.
think Bo has been looking for a screwdriver to stick in Todd and twist
around for a long time now and he has finally found one!
Barely able to keep
from wigging out, Todd practically does a jig when Denton produces a
fake video of Todd somewhere (his office) other than that lake the night
of the murder. Todd will use that video as his cover story.
Sounds like a winner!
Denton warns Todd
that the authorities are closing in on whodunit, making sketches
available for public viewing in the near-future. Todd pisses himself.
That's a daytime first for someone over 5.
Todd’s answer to the
fruits of Bo’s and John’s investigative labor (on the drowned bodies at
the lake), is to take off, without looking back.
Yeah, way to look not guilty because you were at the office, Todd.
Blair can’t help but
think Todd’s up to something, something he won’t let her be privy to. In
exasperation, she warns him to knock off the subterfuge or else risk
total annihilation of his familial place.
she figured that out all by herself?
Too late. A picture
of Ginger with Margaret of all people sets Blair off.
It doesn’t matter

Surely she's not dumb enough to...
Spencer makes himself
tantalizingly available to Blair, in the Ginger aftermath. Lying through
his teeth, Spencer acts like he and Ginger aren’t acquainted, in order

loose with fists on the masher.

This poor girl just cannot get a break (Starr, not Ginger).
It sounds like a
farewell from Todd to Blair. As thinly veiled as Todd’s making the
farewell, it is a farewell.

Bo agrees to let
Matthew see his mom in the hospital, thanks to Paige. Matthew’s
presence seems to help Nora rouse. In Matthew’s eyes, this means
Nora will get better.
Well, the little ones know best. I have not yet heard anything about
Hillary B re-signing with the show. I'm betting a fat contract would
rouse Nora even faster.
Paige cautions Bo not
to jump the gun on Nora just yet, the eye-opening might not meaning
other words, "She could still die, so don't leave me for her yet."
Rachel lashes out at
Bo for causing Nora’s collapse. This makes Matthew very scared, very sad
and very angry at his dad. The boy makes tracks to distance himself.
was pretty dumb and selfish of Rachel to do this in front of Matthew, not
to mention, it's not like Bo made Nora's brain explode or something, just
because he had the audacity to have a LIFE.
Matthew gets over it,

Proving that Matthew is smarter than Rachel.

John personally lends

god, this is cracking me up. Now John is lending a "hand" to the

John suffers from
guilt over Cristian, and the secret Cris swore him to, a ticking time
bomb between him and Natalie.

Next week: No matter
what Ginger says, it’s too late, but not too little. Too bad nobody’s
paying her any mind… It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to arrive at the
inevitable conclusion that Todd might’ve did Margaret in at the lake.
Even Blair senses this… Viki loses it after learning that the nut
doesn’t fall far from the nut bar, so to speak… Clint pays his clan a
much-needed visit, and will stick around to tend to the home fires… Tess
‘fesses up to Nash, but only has hostility, in the form of an aimed
weapon, at Antonio… Todd keeps digging himself in deeper, unable to
escape the long arm of the law (or the suspicious nature of an
increasingly dissatisfied Blair).

A gunfire shoot-out
between Sonny and Javier results in the downing of Reese.
While putting Reese
out of harm’s way, Sonny gets hit.

Javier all but laughs

to be done, on automatic pilot, for Sonny.
Yeah, well, that's what guys with names like Javier get for thinkin!
Sonny ensures Reese

almost DOA. He checks in on her. Reese recovers from
her bullet wound.

away from Sonny… This time, Reese won’t be the beneficiary of such
earlier grace from Sonny… Jason faces extreme peril from Manny… Ned and

Helena arrives, again, October 24, just in time for Lucky and
Elizabeth’s nuptials… Luke’s been able to avoid dealing with his
children for far too long. The bachelor joyride ends when a grown-up and
17 Lulu gets in daddy’s face about all his past wrongs. She will be a
major thorn in Luke’s and Skye’s side… The paternity test results on
Courtney’s unborn baby point to one man as the father. However!...
It’s bad when I can’t even tell
spoilers from jokes anymore but, alas, according to TV Guide, a
passenger train – loaded with Sonny, Sam, Alexis, Carly, Robin and Manny
will crash into another one,
precipitating a landslide, a poisonous gas leak, a flood, a snake,
locusts and the fifth horseman (okay, the last two came from the Bible’s
Book of Revelation). Amidst the multiple disasters, a major character
(Reese?) will fall off the face of the earth. Manny Ruiz makes the train
collision happen, November 3. Head writer Bob Guza Jr. described the
filming as a mini-movie filled with “spectacular” special effects…
NuCarly will run from more than her own demons, smack dab in the middle
of the disasters du jour… The enemy after Carly is real and out for
blood… Alexis has no other choice but to face facts, Ric’s dedication to
Sonny borders on the obscene, and could detrimentally affect her and
their unborn baby—birth about to occur two weeks past the due date.
And with that, I'm outta here.
I hope you are all having a stunning week.
