The rundown from March 10 – 14:
As the week dragged on and on and on, we pined for the desperate and were entertained by a twinge of the absurd while waiting for anyone to get called out for their crimes of passion, attempted murder or baby theft. Too soon? Apparently the writers think so as viewers wait for them to wrap up the overabundance of storylines, a few which have been moving along at a snail's pace.
Two couples were tearing at the heartstrings this week and were thick with nostalgia. Nikolas was set on having one musketeer at his engagement despite Elizabeth's dislike of Britt. Let's have applause for her remedying the situation by accepting Ric's invitation to escort her to the shindig at Wyndemere. Every time the two of them are together, it's easy to think maybe they owe it to themselves to give it a shot for old time's sake. It's easy to feel the same for the other couple steeped in nostalgia, Alexis and Julian. Granted their deal was a one-night stand years ago, it's easy to believe in kismet. The two might be meant for each other.
We didn't see much of him, but what we saw was annoying. This kid is high maintenance and it should be embarrassing for Nikolas the way the kid was running the household. Can't Nikolas crack down on the staff? It was beyond belief how Britt could put up with this but she couldn't make nice with Emma.
Scott, Lucy, Kevin, and Franco.
These characters are a mess - a good entertaining mess. Franco's concern for Scott was touching. Lucy's dismissal of her husband was annoying. She really needs to face facts and come clean about her feelings. Scott's dismissal of Lucy was warranted since she shouldn't continue to lead him on. Kevin's ignorance is blissful…for him anyway. Is there anyone we scream at on the screen more? After suggestions from others that something was amiss between Lucy and Scott, Kevin really didn't seem all that fazed to find her in his hotel room again. Kudos to Scott for his all or nothing attitude, which was sexy. Kevin on the other hand is lacking in the sex-appeal department. Don't continue to come off as all desperate but not have a clue. His profession should allow him to figure out all he needs to know about Lucy and Scott.
Here's a salute to personal grudges for bringing about the dark side in all and bringing forth growth in a few characters. Anna may chide Duke for going to the dark side, but girlfriend was focused on the same, revenge against the Jeromes. Julian called Ric, the "man with the plan" which could mean more than one thing, but continues to leave us wondering if his grudge against Sonny was the reason for his return. Patrick's grudge against Victor turned him into a raging maniac in front of his daughter. Molly's revenge pitted her against her mother. Elizabeth's revenge landed her a date. Things are happening, albeit slowly.
First, I just have to say that Olivia rocked in that red dress she wore this week and she worked the room nicely. Sonny's new digs are sweet and the couple made the room sweeter. Second, whoa, it almost seemed deliberate the way she was questioning Sonny as to why Julian wanted to shoot AJ. It went on a little too long though. Wrap it up already. We all know how much she and Sonny hate AJ and are aware that no one has a clue how Ava's playing them.
