Quote alikat: LOL, you guys rave is a rant for me.
Rant: When did Lucas become so far in Julian's corner that he's almost nonchalant about the man being in jail for aiding and abetting his aunt Ava? Had he defended his father, to an extent, in front of Olivia and then completely RAILED his father for his involvement as well as the life he's chosen that puts all of their family in trouble, I would have been fine.
If he'd immediately sided with Olivia saying, I know what it's like being shot because you're associated with a known mobster and then said, but I truly believe my father that he didn't know about Ava killing Connie, I could have gone with that.
However, what we got was Lucas saying "It's okay Dad. I'll support you. Hey, why don't you tell the truth so you can get your lover back. I'm so happy right now, I want everyone happy."
Wait WHAT? Okay, your sisters mother and sister had their house blown up, your aunt's baby is missing, stolen by a crazy woman, your father is in jail, your cousin Carly was just released from jail, your other cousin, Michael just had his world completely blown apart...but hey...I'm glad you're so happy ~) ~) ~) ~)
Now for my rave: Nina and Franco. Loves those scenes. Him trying very gently to get her to realize what she was doing and to come out of her psychotic state that she's been in for a few days now. Him gently getting her to realize that it's actually Ava's baby. I just simply love these two together. Both actors are superb.
Lucas and Julian have made their peace. He believes in his father and believed that he was telling the truth about not knowing what Ava had done, and was not helping her.
He also wants him to be happy. I love the Julian and Lucas scenes :)
