We’ve been friends a long time. A long, long time. Actually, I’ve kind of known you longer than most of my friends. Which is a really scary thing to admit. Since we have a history, I think it’s ok to speak (ok, write) frankly to you. Here’s what I’m thinking today.
I love it when you promote a cause (Shriners Hospitals), but I’m finding it really awkward the way you’re making everyone clearly say “Shriners Hospitals for Children.” And do people really wear those silly hats at the hospital? Inquiring minds want to know.
I’m having some trouble being worried about Spencer since, honestly, he seemed fine with just a burn on his face. And he was in the middle of the room, away from any flames during the super fake fire.
I’m loving Nicholas as the concerned dad. Cuter than ever. Even though I’m sort of mad at him for keeping secrets and screwing up the election. Poor Felicia hasn’t had a job (or real air time) in years—this was her big chance.
And by the way, I’m not really buying that suddenly Nicholas turned the tables on Helena after she had him by the you-know-whats. Suddenly, she is in prison on Cassadine Island (why do Cassadines only live on islands?) and not an issue.
I’m really annoyed with Michael for trying to get custody of a baby he had no interest in at all and didn’t even hold until she was forced into his arms in the courtroom hallway. Tricky play, Michael, getting the judge switched. And I really do like Rick and Sonny playing on the same team, but I’m always waiting for Rick to slip up and be evil again.
I’m tired of people being handcuffed to beds. Can we be done with this soon? Franco, Julian, and Jake. It’s like you’re trying some weird “Fifty Shades” tie in. First it was “Orange is the New Port Charles” with all the jailhouse shenanigans. Now we’re into handcuffs. What’s next, a “House of Cards” coup?
As always, I love, love, love Carly, and having her together with Sonny is nice. But inquiring minds want to know, isn’t Josslyn going to have trouble adjusting to the baby that Carly is fawning over? I’m waiting for her to go all Children of the Corn over Avery. We all know Joss is a future serial killer.
Alexis is also one of my faves, and one of the reasons I love her is because she is not skinny. She probably is by real people standards, but next to the stick figures you parade across the screen, she is comfortingly shapely.
But Julian again? I don’t understand how she went from “I can’t be with you if you’re in the Mob” to “Oh, you’re in the Mob, but you’re hot, so I’m in.” And why exactly is he back in the Mob? No one is forcing him, so why, Jules, why?
Thank you for bringing Spinelli back. I adore him, and he suddenly has a backbone, which is nice. This Maxie/Nathan/Spinelli triangle could be interesting. I’m worried that Maxie (Kirsten Storms) is looking really thin again, so please keep an eye on her health.
Now, GH, we need to chat about a few issues. No more recycling of plots please. Luke has multiple personalities. Great, because we just did that with Connie/Kate. Yawn.
And Olivia is preggers, and Ned is lying that he is the dad. Not only did he do this with Alexis years ago, but we just did this with Britt and Brad and Patrick. I want new stuff, not old stuff with new people.
I also just want to register a plea to let Sam wear real clothes. The white T-shirt/black bra look is old. I don’t need to be able to clearly determine her cup size through her shirt. Let her dress like a grown up for once.
Well, GH, you’ve still got your hooks in me because I’m wondering, when will we find Patricia and what will she reveal about Luke? Will Michael win Avery, and what will Ava do about it?
When will the Jake/Jason secret come out so Patrick and Sam will have to break up? And when will Lucy Coe begin Nurse’s Ball prep? Because I miss her, and I worry because you haven’t given her a job or any lines in forever.
Are Milo and Epiphany still dating? Will Danny be 12 the next time we see him? And I can’t help but think about Lulu’s frozen embryo that the Cassadines probably did something creepy to. When will that re-emerge? Will Sonny shave again soon?
So many questions, so few answers. I’m waiting to hear from you, GH.
