I watched on Tuesday when it was accidentally uploaded but I spent the entire episode thinking so much about whether it would contribute to view counts and if I would be sad having no new OLTL for a week. I don't even really remember what happened but I think it was good. I will watch again tomorrow.

WTF? "Meat is MURDER." Oh, Jack, I can't...

Is he the 1st vegan on American Soaps?

He's so lying, Jack wants the breakfast, but doesn't want it from Todd..

*Hmm, either way, that made me crack up. I could sense tons of pain in Jack when he threw that glass. Todd can be such a pushy jerk at times, but I can't help but root for him over Vic. 

*This is the most investment I've seen on a Viki story in ages.

*Also, I FF'd the Michelle scenes. Why all this time devoted to a character we haven't even met yet?

I know.. I have to say PP has been very good with young Andrew, love how are doing what ABC never did with him.. I can see Jack is completely torn and is going down a dark road much like Todd did..  I kind of would like if they gave Jack a theme, like how Todd got a theme.. 

 

I know, I love how Viki is a major part of this story, and everyone said she's a supporting character..

 

about Michelle, I guess they are kind of doing the background and setting the stage for her entrance, it's been rarely done well before, 

 

also Dani REALLY wants to jump Matthew's bones..

I just started watching, and I have to say these Buchanans are a low class bunch up and down the line.  Here is Destiny raising a little Buchanan and none of them give her any sort of financial help?  Asa would be ashamed of all of them.

they have been giving her financial help, but she wants to be independent and rely so much on them... a far better cry from when Starr was a single mother

True, but I hope they don't make him go down the rape path, either as the perpetrator or as a victim. That's the biggest character assassination there is. Maybe a medical emergency arises in which Todd has to donate an organ or something to Jack might work? I always thought Jack would be better served as being a good guy more in the mould of an AJ Chandler, with some edge here and there.

In other storylines,
*I really don't get how Nat went from mooning over John to suddenly giddy over some silly date with Cutter.
*Clint never knew how to mind his own business. I liked Queen Victoria throwing her weight around ("this is MY PAPER") like the bossbitch that she always has been.
*Destiny talks about being an independent single mom...but she takes cash from Bo and comes over for random playdates. Please.

The whole situation is Nora'a fault.  She was all "Have the baby!  I will raise it!  You don't have to do anying, I will even find a way to give birth for you!"  Now where is she, taking siestas in story limbo.

Jack a victim of rape??? That's interesting.. I agree, I don't want to see him go down the same dark, twisted path, while waiting to see today's ep, i was rewatching when Todd terrorized Nora at the beach house. I don't want Jack to do anything like that.. I want him to be a balance between both of his parents, but I want him to be more like Blair..I do love the whole medical emergency scenario, that would be great for them..

 

I guess Natalie hasn't gotten any in over a year, while John almost slept with Sam..

 

yeah it's classic Clint... I know love seeing Viki want to do things her way, seems like something VICTORIA LORD would do.

 

I guess Destiny wants all the help she can get from Bo and Nora, since Matthew is busy doing his own thing

Yeah, Drew's existence bothers me. Destiny should've had the abortion, but Cartini wanted a happy ending baby with which to close out the series. Gag me.

I feel like Drew was born solely to give Bob Woods that emotional little nod in the finale when they named him after dead Drew.

Well it was the final year, and if that was truly the last episode then having the Buchanans have a new baby Buchanan was a nice way to end the series (especially with Matthew waking up after all that time).  I remember that episode where Matthew narrated from his coma and it looked like it was his death episode.  That was great writing only they forgot to have him die.  I don't know if the Buchanans are as wealthy as they used to be, but surely there has to be a condo somewhere to put Destiny and Drew up rent free.

Really liked the Todd/Blair/Jack stuff- just good family drama. LOLed at Jack pulling veganism out of the air. Ugh to RH taking time away from this for that tomfoolery going down on GH. My spine chilled when Todd mentioned Starr (which is so sad because Todd/Shorty was one of my favorite soap relationships of any kind ever)- but may Lauren-Kiki-Starr stay far away. Andrew is making me feel for Jack. Hell hath frozen over. 

 

Natalie and Cutter are so sparkly. I smiled like a fool at the computer at them in the coffee shop. Yay for a kind of-sort of Viki/Nat scene- I've missed Viki as a  mom even though I'm glad she has other things now. I liked the phone call ending with the slo-mo and the music. I wonder if we'll see a John recast eventually. 

 

This Banner stuff is the best Viki story in forever. I hope someone shows it to Ron C. Clint being all up in the Banner's business totally works since he ran the paper for years- him as Asa Jr the BE CEO is only JvD Clint right? Love Jeffrey in earnest Clark Kent mode. Hire him already Viki. I like how Clint has been shown sniffing in everyone's story from the Banner to Natalie to Matthew to Jeffrey's career to Dorian. 

 

Speaking of Jeffrey. I feel sorry for him already- he is obviously headed for Destiny and Destiny's heart belongs to her babydaddy and always will, no matter how much of a tool he is currently. I like that they kind of established that already today. Nora knows it, Des said it. If Matthew changes his tune, I feel like its game over Jeffrey. But that will take 3-4 years on our ep schedule so maybe Jeffrey will be happy for awhile. 

 

NuDrew is precious but aging him kind of doesn't help Matthew's likability. Now we're supposed to believe this deadbeat stuff has been going on for like 2.5-3 years and he ignores that chatty, cute little moppet who was all playful with Bo? It was easier to take when Drew was less interactive. Ok wait now she's dropping Drew off with Matthew in the preview? I am so confused. Didn't Nora just tell Bo that he told them all he wanted nothing to do with the kid? 

 

Today would have been a good day off for Matthew and Hurricane Mija- they added little and I say this as a big fan of the Three's Company crew. I did laugh at the super deep conversation Matthew was having with Internet girl about rain and religion and other ridiculousness. Oh well at least they weren't drunk which should give the pearl clutchers on facebook less to whine about. 

 

Snoop in the preview! I could care less about his music and I don't even think he's relevant or hip anymore but his unabashed love for OLTL has always made me smile.

I loved the whole theme of ending on new life (one life awww) but the whole second teen pregnancy in 3 years with characters who looked 14 was kind of icky. I have been saying for weeks that the Buchanan mansion is apparently vacant unless Renee is there all alone. I feel like Nora & Bo would buy Des a condo and she won't let them is the beat they're trying to give us though.
