This bitch is crazy lol.

Nina: I hope I didn't cause any problems between you and Carly.

She's crazy too

I want Phyllis to come to PC so bad.

I believe that is the happiest Spencer has been since he's came back, (and I'm even factoring in his scenes with Trina). He was so happy he literally forgot about his anger for Ava, yet Esme was telling him not to be happy about his Uncle being alive. She is something else, lol. 

I hope that Phyllis comes to PC as well. I liked how Sonny said he would have helped her and Lenny out financially if he had remembered who he as soon enough. He really does love them/her. I think she could continue to be a good friend to him and could get through to him when he needs it at times.

I think they could have done more regarding Esme and her background. We really don't know She dislikes Ava even more than Spencer does, so maybe there is some connection there

A few weeks ago, she referred to Kiki as Lauren (her birth name) which no one but Ava and I think Franco used to do.
That's a huge hint she is connected to Ava and/or the Jeromes in some ways if she knows Kiki as Lauren.
But then again, cynicism alert, considering the pace at which the things they had spent the spring and summer establishing are dropped, who knows if they will go further with that angle.

Nah, the show makes it pretty clear in every episode that Esme is shady and nuts. They didn't have her call Kiki "Lauren" for no reason. Not sure if her connection is to Ryan or to Ava, but she definitely seems more invested in torturing Ava than Spencer does.

The setup was there for Sonny to walk in on Carly/Jason in bed and they don’t pull the trigger!!?? The climax of this story was a total disappointment.  I was on board with almost everything from the beginning of this Sonny-is-dead/he’s in Nixon Falls story, and loved how it was going to be a long time before he would return to PC.  It was a classic soap story where there would be a huge anticipation to a big climax.  But instead we got no drama at all.  
 

Carly/Jason don’t work as a couple either because we never saw them fall in love with each other, so there’s no real high stakes when Sonny returned.  This isn’t like Roman/Marlena/John at all because that triangle had real feelings.  Now we’re going to watch Carly and Jason hide their “feelings” they each other? 
 

I too feel like something changed behind the scenes, like this wasn’t the planned ending because this Jason/Carly being in love for real just came out of nowhere.

It's really amazing how they've managed to mess up every story beat with Jason/Carly/Sonny. One thing that bugged me this week was that they finally had Kristina on and voicing opposition to the wedding AFTER Jarly got married. Where the heck was Kristina during this entire engagement? It would've been great to have literally just one person in Port Charles not supporting the wedding and being like, hey, this kind of feels like a betrayal to Sonny. But nope. They only trot Kristina out for one episode for the reunion scenes.

I will say that I liked Sonny having a flashback to Mike kissing Nina. I'm not even into the two of them together, but Sonny still having some of Mike's feelings for Nina is at least soapy. This is a far more interesting beat to play than Jason and Carly trying to deal with their insta-love that developed off-screen and hours before the wedding. That drama feels so forced. We at least saw "Mike" and Nina's connection develop over several months, so it's more believable. Imagine Carly finding out that Sonny was in love with Nina in Nixon Falls and that he can't shake some of his feelings for her even though he has his memory back now. I'd much rather see that than Sonny getting angry that Jarly decided to try for a real marriage hours before the wedding.

I haven't even started Wedding Week fully yet and I'm already dreading it what quick glances I've taken in here.

 

That said...does anyone know if perhaps the change in tone could be done to when Steve Burton got CoVid so the change in direction in that storyline?

Probably was. They film by set

Even within set it was different; Carly's hair went from straight to wavy. When Ava was at Charlie's Pub her hair was straightened to the left, and once at the Corinthos compound it was a bit more feathered to the right. Those kind of inconsistencies annoy me, lol.

I don't think so, because he's still appearing in episodes

I wish the show would stop trying to make Liz and Finn happen. I'm not seeing any chemistry here, besides maybe sibling chemistry. Why does Liz always have to carry these washed up dudes on her back? She should have a younger man breaking her back instead. I'm only interested in Liz/Finn if it means she ends up spending more time with Chase, who is desperate to put his newfound mobility to good use and stop acting like a monk now that his doctor has given him the all clear. She didn't get a hot girl summer so at least let her have a "Fill me up Fall." Chase should be dicking someone down on the daily, but instead he's stuck hearing about Finn's almost kiss.

Maxie acting all weird about how she heard about Sonny being alive. Why didn't she just say that Britt told her?

Wes Ramsey is on... why? Wasn't Peter shot? Why wasn't he hurt today???

    • I'm pretty sure Chris was present when Kay Chancellor kicked the Fosters out of her house, after Jill, thinking she'd inherited the house from Phillip, moved the whole whip-stitch tribe to Foothill Road.  Wasn't there a big scene where Kay waltzed in and tossed all of them out.    Kay Chancellor and Lorie Brooks had a couple of scenes in 1979.  It was a complicated storyline.  Kay was "dead", having been "killed" in a fire at the sanitarium.  In reality, Kay had survived of course and was staying in the Foster home with Liz.  For several weeks, Liz was the only person who knew Kay was still alive; they had Kay's funeral and everything.  Jill was married to Stuart Brooks and was trying to bilk a divorce settlement from him.  Stuart was anxious to get rid of Jill and was willing to pay a premium to get her butt out of his house.  Brock had revealed to Lorie that, in his opinion, Jill was planning to extort a settlement from Stuart and then run away with Derek Thurston, profiting financially first from Stuart and then secondly from Derek.  Not knowing Derek Thurston, Lorie wasn't sure if this account was valid or not, but she HATED Jill and wanted to be sure Jill got $0 settlement from Mr. Brooks.  Liz babbled to Kay that Stuart was in the process of writing Jill a check for $150,000 to get rid of her .  Kay Chancellor, knowing how Lorie felt about Jill, called Lorie on the phone and said, "Lorie, this is Kay Chancellor.  No, I'm not dead.  Everyone just THINKS I am.  Now, lissssen to me, Lorie. Take the check that your father has written to Jill and rip it to shreds.  Tell Jill to just GO.  She's already made plans to swindle a fortune from my husband.  But I'll stop that as well, and she will get nothing.  Ab-so-lute-ly nothing."  Lorie snatched the check away from Jill and ripped it up.  Jill left Stuart's house with nothing at all, and then Kay herself interrupted Jill's next foray -- a wedding to Derek.  Kay and Lorie were pleased that they'd stymied both of Jill's get-rich-quick schemes.  I don't recall Jennifer Brooks ever interacting with Kay.  It would've been superfluous, as they were the same prototype character -- the vain, wealthy, society matron who depended upon male companionship for validation of their fading beauty.  I expect Bill Bell thought it would be wise to keep them separated, as Kay was simply a more flamboyant version of Jennifer.    
    • She was always fun when she appeared on Larry King Live dishing about old Hollywood. She was a good friend of Dame Joan Collins, who posted this tribute. 96 is quite a fabulous run.  
    • Hardly a week goes by without a network or streamer announcing some sort of reboot or re-imagining of an old TV series. So before the well runs dry I'm challenging our talented posters to submit their own. You can be as creative as you like, adhering to the original concept or using it as a starting point. If you have casting ideas, please include. Should be fun. To get things started Barnaby Jones (original 1973-80)Barnaby Jones is  a formerly retired investigator who with widowed daughter-in-law, run a private detective firm in LA. Jeddediah Jones, a much younger cousin Barnaby eventually joined the firm. Reboot Barnaby Jones is a 50 something silver fox who likes to use 'traditional' detective methods to solve crimes. Luckily his beautiful Asian  American daughter in law Betty Lin Jones is a tech wiz and can often step in to assist Barnaby. Also in the cast Barnaby's nephew Jed a 20 something Latin male who sparks some sexual tension with Betty. Harte to Harte  Original Hart to Hart  79-84 Self-made millionaire Jonathan and freelance writer Jennifer are the Harts - a globetrotting married couple with a talent for finding mysteries wherever they go.  Reboot Jonathan Harte is a young black tech billionaire who together with his influencer wife Gennifer play amateur detectives. Get the idea? Looking forward to your concepts.
