Here is a hodge podge of miscellaneous quick thoughts. Do not expect rhyme or reason or even plain sense..Hmm much like GH itself. but onward ho..
Umm Did Kristina seriously say that Carly is a better mother than Alexis? I'm paraphrasing but that of course is the message that we were supposed to receive from her talk with Michael. I do feel for Kristina and I was mad, sad and a little tearful during that whole horrible "moment" with Keifer. But seriously are the viewers supposed to think that Alexis is horrid because she wants her daughters to NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES as she did growing up and have her "girls (Sam included!) live safe happy lives. And Carly, seriously... Carly, who allows her kids to be raised by gangsters and carted around by hitman, and shoot hey even sleazy Coleman was okay last week to momentarily keep Morgan, is supposed to suddenly be super mom. Come on seriously? People I love to hate Carly, hey, she entertains me, but only when they keep characters clear and simple. Carly does not = model of great parenting. Sorry.
I did feel sorry for Sam when she was talking with her mom (Alexis), I can understand that she would be hurt and she would ASSUME that her mother doesn't love her, but Alexis made it clear that she DID indeed love Sam very much, but still did not approve of her sleeping and carousing around with mobsters and hitman. Still don't see where Alexis is wrong. Sam is grown and can do and screw whomever she wants, yes, BUT Molly and Kristina are not and a responsible parent -SEE ALEXIS- would tell her grown single child to not do certain things in front of adolescent and other teen children. Points her FOR ALEXIS not against. Geesh.
Enjoyed Johnny and Olivia being torn apart, and wanted to enjoy him being in agony a bit longer over loosing her, but alas, they will be back in each others arm soon enough, and I'm a bit disappointed. That's odd. I think, its Olivia, she's not making much sense. How can you preach to Dante, and yet be sleeping with fellow mobster co-hort who is said son's age? Too many contradictions; you want Dante away from mob but its okay to hop in bed with them because your the mom? Eh? Never mind.
Helena and Luke amuse me. Ethan and Luke do not.
DIANE came back briefly. But what was up wit that horrendous hairdo? Yeesh. And a very clumsy attempt to explain her and Milo. The man was hit by a car! I don't care what arguments you had prior to this you immediately take your butt over to the hospital (is that where he is or has he been discharged yet?) and see him for yourself. I mean why use that small bit of screentime, (glad to have her back briefly from Cougartown!) she was in to have a meaningless conversation with Alexis when she could have had a truth telling, good soapy, oh I love you, I can't be with you but I had to make sure you were all-right moment with Milo which would have given us a wee bit of closure. Nope.
What's the point of Rebecca? Oh my gosh she's horrible and back to being Emily, but without the excellent Quartermaine history and connections. Her scenes with Nikolas are annoying and when he looks put out talking to her, I seriously imagine that Tyler Christopher just might really be annoyed. Her humming and umming and constantly stroking the side of his face and saying Nikolas over and over, is annoying me to no end.
Sam and Jason are cute, but Sam is slipping slowly back into ditz mode and loosing all the cground that she has recovered since their original breakup. I'm not a fan of Sam but I did PREFER her showing strength, and independence. When she talks to other people she can stand still and clearly make her points. When she talks to Jason...whats with all the hand waving and constant wiping of her face and flopping of her hair. Is Kelly Monaco attempting to convey flirtation? well if so KNOCK IT OFF..It's too over the top. Just talk to Jason like you've got some sense and lets enjoy them being repaired. And this is from someone who is NOT a Jasam fan, but a happy Jason makes me a happy viewer.
Ohhh yeah..quick point.
What in the world was that whole Sam is mistaken for a hooker scene and they get arrested crap about? That was pointless. And kind of insulting if you ask me. I read another blog that said that several of the writers on the GH staff were women, so why would they EVER allow some of these horrific women hating storylines be prtrayed...This scene brought that to mind. Why would the writers and directors and those running this show, think that having Sam be mistaken for a hooker would be great entertainment? The whole thing was pretty stupid. And insulting. I already said that didn't I? Here it is again, that was insulting GARBAGE.
Oh, the Carly, in labor, Coleman contraband french fries, and Johnny being hammered, scenes were funny, especially when Johnny was attempting to talk and Carly kept squeezing his hand during her contractions. That amused me and they seemed sweet for continuing to stick by her until Jax arrived. Which to me took too long? Why wasn't he immediately notified, instead of running behind Olivia making sure Dante stays on the case.
