Lori’s “All My Children” Weekly Wrap Up For June 27 – July 1:

Last week Pine Valley saw a wedding, a lot of sexual tension, and some good old-fashioned manipulation. Some other things snuck in there as well, so let’s get to it.

For real this time.

Ryan and Greenlee got married again last week with Tad presiding and while it was a little better than their last wedding, it was still super rushed and pretty bland. And the knight in shining armor photo shoot afterwards was pretty cheesy. However, I am glad that they are at least committed to each other. I’m tried of wishy-washy couples and Ryan constantly waffling between the women in his life has grown old. So, at least there’s a feeling of security there.

A twinkle in his eye.

In an attempt to keep Jane under his control, David slept with her. She claimed to be a virgin, which explains why she’s been so skittish about sleeping with Jack and leads me to assume her daughter was adopted. I wonder if they will address that. Regardless, David’s continued manipulations have really livened things up on the show. I don’t know what he ultimately has planned for Jane or even Angie, but his involvement certainly makes her storyline more interesting as well. How handy that David just so happens to have been researching how to grow stem cells for whatever he needs them for. He really is the all-purpose evil genius.

I don’t know how I feel about Madison’s idea for a new Fusion line. I like that it’s about empowerment, but I have to agree with Greenlee and Kendall: It was a little scary. David of course found Madison in her bad-girl getup, which can only mean he will probably try to manipulate her for his own gain as well. I’m okay with that association, because right now the more David the better, but I did miss Scott again last week. I hope his and Madison’s relationship hasn’t been abandoned and he can help bring a little more sanity and stability to her life again.
