Why they didn't write Jillian off with this is dumb. Thanks Frank.
LOL at them switching Sam with Olivia.
I love Ava but I can't with her knowing Paul's a serial killer and she only cares to use it as blackmail to free her creepy brother she can't stop hugging. I don't think they'd dump Maura but why Ava wants to keep pushing a killer ...
And damn, they didn't even bury Sabrina yet before they had Nelle interject herself in Michael/Carly and then having her watching him talk to Teddy. I'm not against them but I don't like this forced bullshit. Don't make your agenda clear.
I couldn't with Dante/Lulu. LOL that was ridiculous. GH has needed stronger script writers for a while now. I liked the Kevin/Lulu interaction though.
Maybe I'm missing something with Nelle, as they aren't bothering to do anything but have her up Carly's ass, but with Nina involved ... I also think Staff and Lanier sort of look-alike ...
Julian's trial is a total joke. Burgi is completely hamming it up (rightfully so, treating it like the ridiculous dreck it is), Alexis a complete mess on the stand, Julian the 'hero' ... it's all so nauseating. I do love Sam hating on Jules though And LOL did Ava just completely disappear from the courtroom on Friday? LOL
And ugh, since they dumped one pet (Sobby) can we dump another (Julian) ... why is the show letting some silly rabid twitter fanbase keep him around? This was the best chance to finally send him away. Instead they go through ridiculous hoops to clear a character of a crime which makes it all come across so poorly. Shame. Could you imagine this being the week we got rid of Sabrina, Bryan Craig quit and Julian going to jail forever and ever as deVry exits? Sigh .... if only. We're off to a good start with dumping the dead weight but Frank won't give up HIS pets. Who do nothing but take up airtime. Stafford, Howarth and Easton are such wastes of contracts. Although Easton and Finn aren't bothering me all that much, but I'm getting a bit tired of Hayden. And Elizabeth has a sister. Rebecca Budig should have been a recast Sarah not some random sister ...
I didn't love Sobby, clearly, but I guess it was nice they gave her and Felix a little final montage. LOL at not being able to get pregnant in time again this time. LMAO. I grew to be OK with her but it was clear they were just biding their time, IMO. Are they pairing Michael with Nelle? And damn, poor Michael, his grandmother gets attacked and his girlfriend gets strangled. By his aunt's ex-husband. LOL I am dying for Tracy's reaction to Paul being the killer. I like that how much airtime Monica has had and I like that we've seen Jason and Tracy by her bedside. It would be Monica who? under the other hack.
I had been saying the show lacked oomph for a while now. Quite a while. But I feel like that's returned. We have an umbrella story involving mostly the entire cast. I'm slightly encouraged but it's been two weeks and let's see how they do after the villains wrap up. I've heard they are around for a few months so I'm hopeful through November Sweeps. This is just the beginning.
Of course I still have some complaints but I'm liking the potential of what I see. (Character bubbles have burst is a major complaint that's seemingly being addressed, for now)
The teens though. Lawd get them an acting coach. Maybe including them in this story (Joey/Claire at least) with the adults will help.
Zzzz to Claire, Theo, Joey, Ciara. Seriously. Between Jovanni and Lastovic mumbling and looking bored .... now they're in college? LOL I mean I knew they were 18 but still .... lord, they look 12
Wow. Abe three days in a row! How nice!
Guess we're getting some closure on Chase/Aiden with Aiden moving Chase to Portland. Such a waste of a good young actor. Stupid show.
What are they trying to do with Gabi/Chad? I don't think it really goes anywhere and I won't bitch about Flynn with his shirt off but they're following up all the drama with this? I guess to later include Chad with Kate/Clyde
Looks like we're about to get Kate/Clyde, though Clyde really should have focused on JJ, who's on today (along with Rafe and Hope).
I know we need downtime from things but there's never any momentum anymore. A day or two and then other things are focused on. I get episode guarantees, etc. but can we improve this? And ugh, so many flashbacks. A long Ciara/Theo one and then Gabi/JJ where they try to convince us that relationship was more than five minutes on-screen.
I'm guessing the Monica thing is a red herring, another Lucas, and then Sabrina gets offed instead. I mean, could they have been more subtle yesterday when they had Jordan talk about staff being killed or something like that and it cut to Sabrina adjusting Liz's drips. I mean, hello .... LOL but the second she side-eyed Paul I knew she was dead and the pieces just quickly fell into place.
