Lori’s AMC Weekly Wrap Up For August 23 – 27.
Last week moved a lot of stories along, most of them interesting, but as always, they raised some questions.
Siding With David.
As despicable as David can be, he has a point about Angie. While I think he could find a way to work with her and still use her as an administrator, she should in no way have been practicing, nor should she continue to practice medicine while she’s losing her eyesight. She has opened the hospital, herself and co-workers up to lawsuits and she could probably kill someone. It almost angered me that Jesse and Angie were so indignant about her condition when David found out. I don’t want him to go all evil and vindictive on Angie, but I am on his side on this one.
David also dealt with his failure as a father where Marissa was concerned, which brought him to commiserate with Liza. They’re both devious and manipulative, yet desperate for love, which could make for an interestingly flawed pair. I see the possibilities.
The secret about Marissa and Scott came out and Annie married him anyway. I really liked that she took a mature and rational approach to deciding who she should be with. JR was really only promising her hot sex, but Scott promised security and love, which Annie needs, especially for Emma. I think Annie loves, or at the very least cares deeply for Scott so it’s not like she’s completely using him.
JR, on the other hand, told Marissa how committed he was to making their marriage work when she confessed her sins to him. How exactly was he committed? He hit on Annie every chance he got and then hightailed it over to her as soon as he and Marissa broke up. That’s some commitment.
Ryan and Madison did the deed last week, but the only thing that stood out to me about it was Madison's behavior in front of Greenlee. Greenlee interrupted them while they were basking in the afterglow and then Madison got called away to work. Greenlee didn't even flinch when Madison said she was running out late for a meeting. Madison still works for Greenlee's company right? Wouldn't Greenlee have questioned her about it or wouldn't Madison have felt the need to explain in more detail to her boss why she was scrambling around? Good thing Bianca is also in charge since Greenlee hasn't been worried about Fusion in some time.
What's Up With Asher?
So Asher has a secret and it's a good possibility that he's a Chandler or a Cortlandt and from the looks of the suit he pulled out for the party, it seems he has more money than he's letting on. The theory that he is Miguel seems to be popping up on the boards, but I’m more intrigued by his sexual orientation. Did anyone else sense a gay vibe between him and Damon? Bianca's love life is on the backburner and the only other prominent gay characters on soaps are on ATWT, which is ending, so I say they capitalize on whatever chemistry is happening between the two and run with it. Besides, I find Damon and Colby's lovey dovey display of affection annoying and wouldn't it be a fun twist if Asher was a spoiler to their relationship because of Damon and not Colby? Tell us who you think Asher is in our poll about Asher's father.
When Kendall mentioned taking Spike to play with Jenny Martin, I had to seriously think about who she was talking about. Tad's been so busy with Damon and Krystal's been preoccupied with Caleb, with whom I think she has good chemistry, they've made me forget they have a daughter together.
Bianca desperately needs a storyline and Kendall needs to do something that does not involve Ryan and Greenlee. Hey, maybe they could embark on a story arc together.
That's it for me this time around. What did you think about last week's AMC? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
