It's not a surprise that Adam Woodward left, but his presence will be missed. Someone that beautiful, being that talented. Some people just have it all. Must be nice . I was genuinely surprised Warren was the one to kill him, bringing that to SIX people he has murdered. Still, great twist. Hopefully, he won't get away with it this time.
Friday's episode was very schmaltzy surrounding the Cher storyline., another major sign of Kirkwood's style forming into Lucy Allan's. I'm not some big Sylver/Mercedes shipper, her best pairing will always be Malachy, but I don't think I want to see her go through the same cycle with someone else so I guess I'm happy about their reunion by default.
Maybe it's because she's my favourite, but anyone else see some chemistry between Mandy and Dr. Ali? I know he's probably the next villain, but something clicked in those scenes for me when he was treating her for her panic attacks.
Which brings me to my next point ... there are so many single people on this show. I don't think it's a problem per say, just surprising. I even made a list ...
When she was first introduced, she was making mysterious calls to a man (?) asking about “the kids.”
Who was the man? Was Vanessa, a grown adult, one of the kids?
Was Vanessa the daughter of Brady, a man Dom was married to for one year? Or who was Vanessa’s father? Another husband of Dom from an invalid marriage?
Odd how Vanessa and Monica couldn’t sustain storylines considering Dom still manages to have one.
Not having seen the earlier years, I was startled to read in the recaps that Loretta Jardin may have been, at least originally, somewhat mentally challenged. I had the vague impression that she was one of Julian's colleagues at the university, although this may have been an unwarranted assumption. As played by Alice Drummond during the last year, Loretta was quiet, intelligent, and kindly.
As RH fans know, Alice Drummond played Susie, the wife of the guy on the cruise who blackmailed Delia into having sex with him because he knew she was faking her injury. This hilarious performance undoubtedly helped her get the opportunity to play other blue-collar New Yorkers, as in HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT and an even larger role in AWAKENINGS. But I'm sorry I didn't get to see Alice play more characters as bright and interesting as she undoubtedly was in real life.
Jason Q and Sonny did interact a bit through Stone and Brenda. Jason organized a party for Stone at the Q mansion and let him use the gym at the house and I remember him being against Sonny and Brenda (mostly peripherally at first). I would say Jason Q/Sonny were friendly acquaintances at least. they definitely knew one another were at several of the same events interacting like Ned/Lois's wedding and Nurses Balls.
Sonny/Monica interacted while Sonny was on the ELQ board and in regards to Jason/AJ quite a bit.
Liz/Brenda- I am not sure have ever even spoken to one another even though they had tons of characters in common.
