SCENE OF THE YEAR Coronation Street: Callum's death Doctors: Valerie leaves Barry at the altar EastEnders: Mick and Linda finally get married Emmerdale: Val's death Hollyoaks: Nico kills Patrick
Does every single issue in the Carter clan have to revolve around Mick?!
Kyle bitching and moaning about his situation is so stupid. Did he honestly expect no one to find out?
Sonia and Tina ... Two irrelevant bitches and their woes, which I really don't care for.
Sophie is psycho. Why does she expect Tina to have feelings for her when Tina said point blank she loved someone else before they screwed? Sophie even OK'd it and proceeded to get busy with her. So stupid.
Oh Masood. Can this man catch a break? I swear DTC hates him along with Jay and Denise.
I enjoyed today's episode and how it highlighted father/son relationships.
I thought the scenes with Ashley and Jacob were cute but heartbreaking. Once again, I am reminded that the clock is ticking with Ashley. I just hope that they don't do the climax at Christmas this upcoming year. I'd actually like if they strayed from the cliche.
Oh Jacob! I love his relationship with David and understood why he was frustrated. I just love the Pollard family unit. They are the ONLY bright spot about this show as of late.
I really didn't care about Gabby v. Liv. I knew that was coming a mile away. I just hope this doesn't result in one of them bedding Jacob and getting pregnant to stick it to the other. I know it's not real nowadays, but I'd actually like to see a group of wholesome young adolescents in soaps. I don't need everyone having sex.
Too funny but I am all for it. Plus, I (too) hate how Steven was demonized so Jane could be a victim.
Again, I do hope that he calls her out on her sh-t if he does return. She can't peg Steven as demented any longer when she's housed a killer and didn't turn him in. I think it'd be poetic justice if Steven was the one to turn Jane, Ian, and Bobby in.
Looks like the other psycho Beale son is returning. I hope he know the truth about Bobby and hopefully, Peter was the one to tell him. I hope Steven tosses it all in Jane's face. Jane or Ian can't say sh-t about Steven given that they've turned a blind eye to Bobby actually killing someone.
Boy do I wish Steven would've actually killed Jane all those years ago...
I loved how low-key Gina was in the finale. For once, it was not about all the women piling up on her. She actually got to sit back and watch the festivities of the other women fighting. Glad she got the final line by telling everyone "to get f-cked." Gina, much like LVP, doesn't have to do much and she's still the star.
Oh boy. Lydia ... man is she guilty as sin. She couldn't even conjure up a half-assed apology, and it is bad when Pettifleur (of all people) is calling you out on your sh-t. I think the reunion next week is gonna be rough for her.
I do believe that Jackie is a sh-t-stirrer and I am glad she came off as just as petty and Lydia last night. I grinned from ear to ear when Gina and her dear friend, Chyka said in their talking heads that she is no better than Lydia when she implied Lydia was having affairs. Do I believe Jackie? Nope.
Lydia did drop some funny ass lines that were a bit ironic last night. For instance, when she said she couldn't remember Suzie's wedding at all. Funny b/c many people say they can't remember Suzie at all this season. I personally enjoyed Suzie and the dynamic of these eight women. I hope they all return, but I have a feeling that Lydia is about edged out whether the show likes it or not. It is obvious that Jackie, Janet, and possibly Chyka will never want anything to do with her.
^ All of this. Just the perfect way to summarize what many of us feel.
I don't want them to be cancel, but I'd prefer them to be taken off life support than to suffer any longer. As you stated, if they aren't gonna do what it takes to salvage these shows then taken them off the air. No use in letting them stagger into nothingness.
Good for him. I am glad he won as the Avants are the ONLY good thing about B&B.
If Brad had a brain, he'd put all the Avants on contract.
I was a category in the 80s. I think they brought it back last year.
Exactly. I felt like that story could've provided so many people so much material for years to come if Brad would've pushed the envelope and played all the proper beats.
