Pondering Pine Valley
March 30 – April 3
Let’s get straight to the blog this week, shall we?
He may not have taken up a lot of time this week in Pine Valley, but the Return of Adam could not have come at a better time. Why? Because JR is about to self-implode and David is getting away with anything and everything. It’s about time someone laid the smack down in Pine Valley and I’m certain Adam is the man to do it.
I am curious about his Big Secret, though. Does it have to deal with David? Krystal? Or is it something a little closer to home?
I really liked that the writers showed a more human side of David this week. With all the talk of how horrible he is, it was good to remember that David has had his share of heartaches, starting with Leora. Ian’s illness and surgery was the perfect way to help all of us remember that David may act like a tough, take-no-prisoners guy but he is really just a normal (okay, maybe not quite normal!) human being!
Plus this was the perfect way to slap some sense into both Kendall and Zach who have been so obsessed with being right that they’ve nearly ruined their marriage. I, for one, think they are both equally to blame for the downfall. Sure Kendall started pushing Zach away months ago but Zach isn’t exactly an easy man to love, what with all of the secrets he keeps.
One thing did bug me – what was Ryan doing there? Sure he's trying to convince Kendall that he cares about her but seeing him just outside Ian's hospital room was just plain wrong.
The Card Game
Play Texas Hold 'Em for the casino was brilliant, though. And Kendall's reaction to the card game was priceless. She started to figure things out but then Ryan pulled that puppy dog, I've been hurt face and she backed down. Come on, Kendall, show some spine!
Little A's Custody
On the one hand I liked that David tried to kidnap Little A this week. On the other hand, I thought it was a little far-fetched. Did he seriously think he would get out of Pine Valley without a scratch? I loved that Krystal stood up to him and said point blank that they were going to do this. It's about time we saw some of the old Krystal. I hope that lasts a while!
I can totally understand where Amanda is coming from with the quickie, dead-baby-adoption. Having David Hayward as my baby daddy would be enough to send me to Oak Haven. I also like that she is obviously torn between wanting the baby growing inside her and desperately not wanting it. And I'm glad I don't have to make her choice! How about you?
I wish the writers would figure out if they want Colby and Petey as a couple of if they don't. These one day on and one day off scenes are making me crazy!
Until next Friday, fans!
