    Dani's gift. (TOLN/Hulu)
    Welcome to Amy's "One Life in a Week" for July 22:

    The creeper level hit a new high, Dorian's mouth could very well cost her a few dollars, and Matthew may be in for a lot more than love in the afternoon. Let's break it down…

    Dani and the scarf.
    It's one thing to keep the beautiful scarf as a keepsake of her fallen friend, and yet totally another to wear it around town. For all Dani knows, Arturo is still 'grieving' Brianna and seeing the scarf around her neck over dinner might be a bit much for him to handle. Not to mention how uncomfortable most would feel to wear it so soon. The girl was just murdered. At the end on Monday's episodes Arturo appeared to be a total creeper toward Dani, who obviously loved the attention. Dani may believe that Arturo is drawn to her in order to get through losing another very young girl who he supposedly loved, but she's being naïve. If he's on the up and up, I'll eat crow, but for now the suspicion surrounding Arturo's motives for his gifts and actions are too much to ignore. And when Dani's family finds out that she's being wined and dined by a man who could be her grandfather, they are going to flip their lids. Two kids in one family (Jack and Dani) with an interest in two very impressionable, older people could be devastating on so many levels.

    Todd and Blair fans rejoiced when the couple decided to give their relationship another go. Jack, not so much. Not totally unexpected, but for the love of the soap Gods, please give us more sexy scenes verses their repetitive on again off again scenarios of the past. Their chemistry is too hot to keep behind closed doors!

    Talk to the hand! (TOLN/Hulu)
    Don't speak!
    The smile on Rama's face when Dorian demanded that she 'don't speak' was priceless. For a second there it appeared as though Rama was going to burst out laughing, as I did. Dorian unsuccessfully tried to get Rama fired then listened like a newbie as Cutter reminded her he could sue her if Rama sued him due to wrongfully letting her go. Maybe the 'sue' word was too fresh in Dorian's mind after Viki threatened to do the same. In true Dorian fashion she got the last word. Rama may stay away from Dorian, but Cutter keeping her away from David is another story, especially since David has thrown his marriage under the bus for the sake of a new reality angle.

    Can't keep her stories straight.
    Jeffrey has picked up on what Matthew is blind to… Michelle cannot keep her stories straight. Either Jeffrey is being too critical, or Michelle is hiding something. My bets are on the latter.

    Manipulating and controlling.
    We all know one thing about Viki, she's a very strong woman. Kudos to her for not jumping on the re-engaged bandwagon with Clint and opening up to Natalie about the man who has recently wronged them both. Clint is manipulating and controlling, not a real shocker, so a little away time from all of the marriage talk is okay by me. With the gala coming up we're sure to see this drama revisited again publically, which could be fun. Llanview events of the past have always equaled disaster, so here's hoping the reboot continues to deliver them as such.

    Amy, Dorian told Cutter to not let Rama anywhere near her, not David!

    I really wish Todd and/or Blair would knock the you-know-what out of Jack. I am sick and tired of his spoiled brat routine. It is very tiresome.

    Arturo seems like a nice guy, but very creepy around Dani.

    IMHO, I think Saint Victoria over-reacted to what Clint did. Yes, be mad at him, but to end their engagement over this? Clint has done far worse and Viki has forgiven him. If anyone should have not forgiven him it is Natalie.

    Jack isn't a spoiled brat ,both Jack n Dani have every right not forgive Todd ,he hasn't done anything to earnit. until he finds Victor and brings him home apologizes for trying to kill VICTOR AND TO JACK FOR GIVING HIM AWAY ,HE DOES NOT DESERVE THEIR RESPECT,BTW It was his own fault he was kidnapped ,he got involved with the organization to get money from them b/c the paper was failing.When he realized this was a rogue CIA he stole the chip proving this from them . instead of going to the cops with the chip ,he was going to use it to black mail them,Thats how he got himself kidnapped ,which lead to Victors life being stolen from him b/c their mother had him brainwashed to believe he was that sociopath ,JACK IS RIGHT EVERYTHING IS TODD'S FAULT.
