That I love the idea of:
… GH’s Patrick being a wanton sex god? How unrealistic would it have been for Patrick’s ex-hookup’s good friend to not give him the eye? His reputation precedes him! I don’t mind that other women give him the eye, want to seduce him, or think he’s hot… as long as he remains Robin’s wanton sexgod, I’m all good! We had another of those rare moments in soaps, last week. A reformed playboy let’s those around him know that he’s HAPPY with his life and wouldn’t trade being a father and husband in and any part of his past. We need moments like that to wash the rest of it clean! By the time he was getting the lusty eye from the new ADA, it just rolled off me. No Scrubs Love fear that she would drive a wedge between them. OH, and double bonus points for the writers having Robin use the phrase “Scorpio Drake family”.
… SB’s ‘Claudia’ end coming near. The writers are making Claudia such a despicable toon that she really does deserve to have something awful happen to her (I’m thinking prison, where both she AND Sonny belong – not murder). I have to be honest. I don’t want her to ‘get what’s coming’ because she’s despicable – that’s what also makes her FUN. I can’t wait for her to go because SB then turns up as ‘Sandy Sommers’ on the BnB the following day and I’ve been aching in anticipation of seeing what gifts she brings to the show.
…Greg Vaughn being the “Lucky” to win Elizabeth’s heart before JJ’s episodes begin airing? Won’t happen, I know, but it would have been the most decent thing TPTB could have done for GV’s fans. It would send Vaughn’s Lucky out on a high note (if you can count winning cheating Elizabeth’s heart for a moment a ‘high’). Vaughn has taken the character of Lucky to some pretty dramatic highs – through the character’s emotional lows following the drug addiction storyline. I can’t imagine even the beloved JJ doing such a great job with the storyline. Don’t get me wrong, I love JJ’s interpretation of Lucky – he originated the role a nd made the character one to root for, I just couldn’t see him pulling the story off as well as Vaughn did.
…Alexis finally being the person to catch the perfect daughter in the act of throwing herself away on some pinhead? Sam, on one hand, is doing the responsible thing by making sure “K” is protected from her own bad choices, but at the same time, it’s bothersome that Alexis is completely cut out of her daughter’s life. (Honestly, I’m shocked that no one has run to Sonny to have him break the kid’s kneecaps. He’s treated as more of a parent to Kristina than Alexis is). The writers continue to lead Alexis out to the edge to try to ‘make sense’ of the fact that she’s not the person her daughter trusts, even after she took the rap for Claudia’s accident. Sorry writers, we know that Alexis is too clever to keep going after Michael and trying to drive a wedge between the siblings. The brilliant woman she was before becoming a ‘Sonny’s Baby Mama’ would have made sure that Michael and ‘K’ spent most of their time at her home, so that should keep an eye on them. THIS Alexis is ingracious and obnoxious… and I’m not buying it.
… Dominante taking the mob boys down? UH! I’m living for the day Sonny and Jason are in adjoining cells and wearing orange jumpsuits! Dominante was sickened at how easily Sonny ordered another man’s death. Will that change once he finds out that Sonny is his father? I hope not. I hope he continues to be repulsed by Sonny, and maybe by his mother for having loved a man like that. I would rather see Sonny finally have to work to win someone else’s respect. I don’t just want Sonny and Jason to have to do some time in prison and lose all of their assets. I want this to be a new beginning for them. I hope this means that the writers are closer than ever to bringing the mob to an end… dare to dream? If the writers must keep them around, drop the dark drama that surrounds them!
… the new Cassadine wiping the floor with Nik? Sorry folks, I’m not interested in his redemption.
