How sick? (TOLN/Hulu)

“AMC” Rundown for July 8:

Things were really starting to feel normal in Pine Valley this week, thanks to Jesse’s unwavering inability to tell Angie the truth – much to David’s delight – while JR continued to make dangerous decisions. Just your typical week in town.

Tempo temptations.
Very interesting goings on behind the scenes at Talk Tempo. Dimitri telling Brooke that she is one of the most powerful, talented women he has ever met must have been music to the ears of one of Erika Kane’s oldest rivals. Something tells us Adam won’t be as pleased to hear it as she was, wherever he is. Workwise, it was good to see Brooke second-guess the questions she didn’t push during her interview with David. She should be questioning herself. While the ratings may have been gold, she was pretty soft on him. Not that Dimitri seemed to mind. If Colby catches wind of even a hint of impropriety she will devour Brooke. What do you think about this potential pairing? Vote below.

Celia also obviously has skills at work and it will be interesting to watch this ingénue evolve her career over the years. Too bad she has the meanest mean girl to overcome right off the bat in Colby, who is just delicious. How else is there to describe her? Every manipulative move she makes is purely for stirring the pot, and staid Celia was more fun to watch keeping up with her. We’re looking forward to these two doing battle behind the scenes at Tempo and over Pete’s affections.
