Up late studying and catching on Tad & Cara's wedding/Ryan & Greenlee searching for Emma on Soapnet. Even though this was where the show started to improve on ABC, seeing this just makes me ridiculously excited and grateful that tomorrow I get to wake up to a Pine Valley with Dimitri, Brooke, & Billy Clyde Tuggle & where Cortlandt Manor is a place again.

 

Excited to see more fallout from finding Cass.

The iTunes clip sucked me in, even at 4 AM. Dimitri, Brooke, and Opal at Tempo Talk! I'm gonna watch.

Perhaps Oliver is a nod to Lindsay's (ex?) husband's role on Smallville maybe?

 

Jesse: "You filthy son of a flea-ridden whore." laugh.png OMG I'm dying.

 

This episode is so good! I LOVE the Tempo Talk set. That flirtation with Dimitri and Opal was cute. And we finally know where Erica is...sort of.

 

I don't like the new doctor, I don't see the point. He even sort of looks like Griff.

 

ETA: OMG Yuri just mentioned Frankie, Randi, Natalia and Brot! They're all still together apparently.

I imagine he goes by Oliver Castillo. Cara and David never married and she's been keeping him incognito. I was under the impression it had at least as much to do with that drug cartel she got mixed up with as David, but I may be imagining that. Anyone?

 

A very good show, all in all. All the stuff with Talk Tempo (or Tempo Talk?) reminded me so much of the old days with the TV station - I assume/hope Tempo Magazine is still around as well, I wouldn't want to think of it just being this online show. I loved everything with Dimitri, Brooke and Opal, and I thought it was smart to weave in Celia and Pete around it into the workplace. Opal is constantly ambivalent about Celia overall, which I suppose is human. I thought the beat with Dimitri and Celia was odd, and I assume it has to mean something down the road. I love not knowing what's coming. But please clean up Michael Nader's teefs.

 

Loved Pete in his business element. I really hope we see the David interview next week. I'll be pissed if we don't. Also, nice mention of Erica - they're finally getting specific. I am biting my nails for an airdate for

Spoiler
at this point, to be honest - I want to see that stuff play.

 

Anders and Dixie were intriguing, as I'd hoped, if a bit typical of this sort of thing. And of course, Tad and Dixie are still engaged - if you're engaged for five years, it ain't happening. I suspect my Tad hypothesis is still correct. I'm just glad there's a story there. I might have preferred Griffin instead, but I have no idea what's going on with poor Jordi.

 

I loved that Cass ratted Jesse out. Frantic, hysterical Jesse is always hilarious fun. I also loved the mention of Frankie, Randi, Natalia and Brot.

 

I wish Opal wasn't out of Cortlandt Manor - Jill Larson seemed so thrilled to have the set back, but Opal is clearly going to move into Cortlandt Towers or whatever to keep an eye on Petey so presumably she'll have her own set there as well. And I will admit the Billy Clyde at Cortlandt Manor angle - working to remake himself in the image of Palmer - is brilliant stuff.

I forgot about that! I thought the same, I think Dimitri is Celia's guardian.

I don't think so - he didn't seem to know her or play that beat in any way. But there was something going on.

Maybe Dmitri knows Celia's guardian and perhaps saw a pic of her somewhere(maybe from when she was a kid)? Either way, I am going to love this Talk Tempo/Chandler Media stuff.

I am sure Oliver's last name is Castillo. No way she gave him David's last name.

I did like finding out that at least the Hubbard couples are still together, even if it came from Yuri. The whole intrigue with Jesse and Yuri owning his ass is going to be good.

I don't recall Cara saying a drug cartel was part of the reason she hid her son; it was just to keep the kid safe from David.

 

I had to quote you because you summed up most of what I was going to say.  I probably say this way too much, but this was the best episode of the reboot so far.  From Opal/Brooke/Dimitri to Billy Clyde buying Cortlandt Manor and Cassandra mentioning the phone call with Jesse,  I loved every single minute today!

It seemed to me like Dimitri had a reaction when he heard she had a guardian, so I think you're right and he knows about her, but isn't the guardian himself.

Dixie looks absolutely ridiculous in her role as a therapist! What a joke. Rolled my eyes bc up until today, she didn't seem to give a damn about the Hubbards

Wow, Jesse wasn't an ass to David and actually thanked him for saving Angie's daughter. Good for him. What an idiot though telling Uri, he was going to tell on him. Damn, Uri, threatening to get Natalia and Randi. Well Randi would be used to it, old porn girl that she is

Finally we see the Tempo set. Its big and it looks like they put more work into it than many of the others. I like it.

Finally an Erica mention. I was about to say if they have Dimitri here and don't have Opal especially say something....

I really dislike Celia. Stupid, childish, bitch

Huh at the end. I thought Opal said she wouldn't sell?

I laughed at Yuri saying that Randi and Natalia would make him a lot of money. Randi sure, but Natalia would kill his ass with her bare hands.

 

Dr. Anders gives me the creeps. Dude has no bedside manner. I can't really fault him for his attitude toward Dixie though, because she truly is nerve racking.

 

Did I detect a whiff of a Brooke/Dimitri/Opal triangle?

 

I love seeing all these characters at work. Yes, even Dixie as therapist. One character who I would like to see is Jane. Where the hell has she been?

 

For all those who claim that the younger set dominate the show, please note that we saw nothing of AJ, Miranda or Heather. The only people we saw today under the age of 40 were JR, Cara, Celia and Cass.

 

This is one of those episodes where I just kept thinking "We NEVER would've gotten this on ABC." Most of what we saw today would've been impossible under the Frons regime.

really? Because AMC was not really a youth centered soap under most of Frons reign. Most of the episodes in latter years didnt feature teens. Today's collection of characters seemed like something we'd typically see on ABC. Oh and you forgot Petey

AMC began as a soap with a unique focus on its teen/youth stories amidst the generational storytelling, which I believe was somewhat unusual at the time. That was a big part of how it became a phenomenon - focusing on Erica, Phil, Tara and Chuck, and in later years reinventing the same formula with Greg, Jenny, Angie, Jesse, etc.

Sorry those were two separate thoughts. I need to break them up. What I mean when I say we wouldn't have gotten this is I mean we wouldn't have gotten a glimpse into Opal's inner life or extended scenes between Brooke, Dimitri, Opal. We also wouldn't have had Cass out Jesse so quickly.

"You filthy son of a flea ridden whore", now that was a good line.

 

When Cassandra said she heard Jesse's voice and Angie looked at him, I wasn't expecting that. What a cliffhanger.

 

At least Dixie is showing the Hubbards some concern and not only coming to Jesse to ask him to arrest someone.
