Farah tries to be less bossy, Kelly does something sweet, and Nadia stands up to Fary.
Farah and her tacky hat have breakfast in her dressing room with JP. She orders JP back to the kiosk to get her another breakfast burrito, because hers is missing cheese. When she goes to work on the "One Life to Live" set, she has a tough time recalling her lines. She is overwhelmed playing two characters, one good and one bad. All Farah needs to do is act like herself to play the bad girl. Danny drops by Farah's to show her his new product, a chap stick with Viagra in it. Farah jokes about how big her lips already are and then reveals Deidre Hall slammed her for wearing too much lip gloss, making Deidre the woman of the hour.
Danny and Nathaniel join Farah and JP for shopping. Nathaniel tries to sell JP on a sensible cardigan. JP feels his individuality dying. JP gets frustrated and Farah sighs that the mission has failed.
Nadia calls her mom, Fary, and invites her over to her house to spend time with Brandon's family. A less-than-thrilled Fary suddenly has a cold. Nadia hopes she feels better. That would take a lobotomy. Brandon's family arrives and his mom compliments their beautiful home, but thinks it needs children in it. Nadia explains Fary isn't there because she is sick, but Brandon believes that Fary isn't really sick and notes it hurts his feelings.
Kelly invites her former friend, Lauren, over to reconnect. Kelly feels regret over losing touch with her, especially since Lauren overcame Hodgkin's. Kelly could kick herself for not being strong enough for her, and Lauren is still hurt over waiting at the hospital for her to show up. Lauren forgives her and Kelly cries that she needs her in her life.
Kelly goes out for a girls' night and discusses some charity work she's doing for Children's Miracle Network. She is inspired by a young girl, Mikayla, who is fighting leukemia. She wants to do something special for her. She invites Mikayla to the "General Hospital" set to be a part of the show. Doing a hair touch-up, Kelly accidentally singes Mikayla's wig. They end up having to get a new wig. Mikayla reveals she gets picked on by other kids for not having real hair, but loves the new wig. Kelly stokes Mikayla's new hair and says, "Hair or no hair, you are amazing." Mikayla's scene of the show goes great, and Kelly beams like a proud mama.
Farah and Nadia go to an event and get free manicures. Farah thinks Fary is so funny, perhaps because she sees so much of her bossy self in Fary. Nadia notes it is tough for Brandon. Suddenly, Farah finds Fary not so fabulous and wonders how Fary can treat Nadia so bad.
JP and Brandon meet for lunch. He tells Brandon about his fight with Farah. Brandon wonders why Farah yells at him, and finds her to be very bossy. Brandon should know about bossy since Fary owns him. He thinks JP should just let Farah have her way to make her happy. He reveals he puts up with Fary because it makes Nadia happy, but he wishes Nadia would stand up to her. JP randomly asks Brandon if he has had eye work done.
Brandon returns home and laments his wish that Fary was as easygoing as his family. Nadia believes everything Fary does comes from love, except for interacting with the human race. Nadia chokes up feeling like she's always in the middle. Brandon advises Nadia to stand up to Fary because her negativity is effecting their lives. They invite Fary over for a serious chat. Fary channels her inner Farah and rolls her eyes. An upset Nadia wants Fary to stop making up things about Brandon, like him being a drug dealer. Fary twists everything around and answers their questions with questions. Fary claims she will be nice when Nadia is actually happy with Brandon. Nadia says she is happy, but Fary believes she has had too much champagne and yells, "Cheers!" More yelling ensues, Fary tells Brandon he is an assh*le, and leaves. Nadia cries, but Brandon is happy she stood up for him.
Farah surprises JP by taking him to play golf. He teases her by offering to go ring shopping if she plays well. She then surprises him with a brunch on the 18th hole and a golf membership for when he moves to LA. He says it is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for him. She apologizes for being so controlling. Knowing Farah won't be able to help herself from bossing her man around, I'm suddenly feeling nostalgic for Galen and Jenna, who are at least nice to one another most of the time.
Next week on the season finale "Dirty Soap:"
On a camping trip, Brandon tells Kelly he does worry things might not work out between him and Nadia.
Danny tells Farah he needs to have a serious discussion with her about JP.
Farah tells JP they are done.
Feel free to leave a comment about your take on tonight's "Dirty Soap."
It was awesome to see Nadia stand up to Fary. It must be tough being caught between her mom and Brandon, but she has to recognize that her mom is indulging in some unhealthy behavior. How in the world does Fary get away with accusing Brandon of being a drug dealer? I have to wonder sometimes if Fary is trying to live vicariously through Nadia.
I find Farah to be a bit two-faced. One second, she is barking orders at JP. The next, she is arranging for romantic dinners on a golf course. It's nice that she apologized to him, but I don't think she will be able to make good on her promise to be less controlling. Of course, I don't find JP to be such a great boyfriend, either. These two just seem to want different things and it is making them both crazy in the process, and making me crazy watching them. Also, I think Farah's hat should be credited as a supporting character, as she always seems to be wearing it.
It's really great when celebrities use their power for good, and I loved seeing Kelly do something so special for Mikayla.
On a random note, how in the world did Danny make a chap stick with Viagra? Does he have his own Mr. Wizard's World lab or something? On another random note, why did JP ask Brandon if he had eye work done? Sometimes, it seems like he is intentionally trying to be weird.
The season finale is up next week and Farah is teasing us with the prospect of leaving JP. I didn't see Kirsten in the previews, but hope she makes an appearance somehow.
