two scoops great comments about Justin/Adriene
The old "mother protecting her young" is a staple on soaps, so I'm not that mad at DAYS for trotting it out. The problem with Adrienne using this excuse is that, in this particular situation, Baby Bear already knew everything. Will told Sonny about shooting E.J., the cover-up, who's involved, the whole ice cream sundae. Heck, Sonny technically knows more about Will's life right now than Will does because Sonny knows the truth about Gabi's crimes and still lets her live with them!
So, it's a bit hard to swallow this idea that Sonny needs protecting, because we all watched Adrienne's grown, business-owning, child-raising son go into this thing with his eyes wide open. Adrienne just flat-out didn't like Sonny's decision, so she took it upon herself to reroute his life. It was a stand-up thing of Sonny to extend an olive branch to his mama (wait 'til she hears that she has Sami to thank for that!), but until Adrienne apologizes for not trusting her son's judgment, this truce will be short-lived.
And as much as I wanted to hug Judi Evans during her masterful performance, I'm completely #TeamJustin in this argument. She completely blindsided Justin with something that concerned both his professional integrity and his son. She does not get to be a harping shrew about the amount of time he takes to deal with it. I hate to say it because I usually love Adrienne, but she needs to pull up a chair next to Marge Bernardi in Apology Crafting 101 class and get a head start on her material.
