“AMC” Rundown for September 2:

With so many storylines in the air it was unrealistic to expect resolution on everything, but the finale really seemed to end on a whimper rather than a bang. It’s probably unfair to compare the season ender in Pine Valley with the exciting shocker over in Llanview, but it’s hard not to. Overall, we got a lot of romance without many sparks, leaving quite a few relationships in limbo. We’ll just have to wait for next season to get more invested.

Big fat liar.
Jesse is just a big old Liar McLiarson! It seems it is actually impossible for him to tell Angie the truth. Here she is, forgiving him all the time and offering him incredible advice about opening his own detective agency, and he just keeps lying to her about everything. That was no empty threat when David told Jesse that one day Angie was going to wake up and realize she could do better than him. If she learns about Jesse’s secret search for Uri, that threat is certain to become a reality.

Tad’s return.
Tad’s reveal would have been much more dramatic if things had progressed a little faster between Dixie and Dr. Anders. We know there is supposed to be something growing between them, but if Tad comes back before they get close, where’s the drama? We still don’t really know anything about the mysterious doctor. However, Joe has been holding down the fort back home really well without Tad – love him! One of the best surprises this season was how much Joe was utilized, providing support and some darn good advice to those he loves.

That sparkle.
Dimitri has been using all that royal charm to impress upon Brooke how desirable she is, and what Daytime lady could resist constant attention like that when her fiancé has been AWOL for months? Their kiss was full of emotion, so definitely looking forward to more of that next season – and hopefully a battle royale between Adam and Dimitri over Brooke – and Chandler Media.
