As The Week Turned
April 20 – April 24
As my week turned this week several things caught my eye. One, Luke really, seriously needs an attitude adjustment. Two, Meg’s plans never work so why is she still making them? And three, Liberty has finally started to use her brain again!
On with the blog!
Alison and Casey
Could the writers please, please, please give Casey and Alison something better to play than a goofy ‘Mr. Pants’ storyline? If Alison says one more time that her past is killing her future I’m going to scream. Get some counseling. Get over it. You made a few mistakes. Casey doesn’t seem to care so let’s get going on this! And on the counseling front, that could be a good, growth storyline to follow because Alison does have man and drug issues to confront!
Who didn’t see the Grimaldi connection coming a mile away? Yep, me, too, but all the same, I started liking this storyline this week! Seriously! Zac and Zoe finally got out of their weirdness and went fully evil, there was a gunfight, several fistfights and then Lily took charge. Great, great drama. Now if Holden would stop being so sanctimonious I could really sit back with my bowl of popcorn and enjoy the show!
Katie’s Baby Woes
Someone needs to get Katie a clue. Fast. All of her whining and sniveling about 'my baby, my baby' is getting old fast. If she's not careful she is going to lose not just a baby but a best friend and maybe even a husband because methinks Brad is tiring of her jealousy/paranoia bit very fast. The last straw for him seemed to be the psychic. And who has ever heard of a psychic that can only get 'readings' from unborn children? Come on! Sham, Katie, sham! And yet you let this woman get you so worked up that you demanded Vienna get DNA testing done!
How is Vienna standing it? She's living with Katie. Sharing doctor appointments with Katie. Giving her child to Katie and yet Katie keeps pushing and prodding and the list goes on. Henry has it right – the truth about the baby needs to come out. Katie and Brad will accept it and move on or not but at least Katie might stop harping on Vienna about everything from the color of the sky to the right kind of baby shoes!
Meg's Dangerous Path
The girl is playing with fire! I love it! Why? Nope, don't want Meg to win. I don't want Paul to win either. I'm hoping they both combust and Eliza is given to Will and Gwen to raise. She might actually stand a chance of becoming a well-rounded, self-supporting individual that way! Okay, that's harsh. I understand Meg is afraid of Paul. I understand that Paul is nuttier than a Payday bar but that doesn't change the fact that if Meg really wanted to she could go to the social workers and have custody returned to her. Bring up just one of Paul's past actions and the courts would hide Eliza from him for life. But, no, Meg wants to toy with Paul. Play with him until he finally breaks. She's Mini-James in a skirt!
I don't care that Lucy's smuggling guns with the medication. I want Lucy to be facing off with Craig over Johnny. That is the story I wanted to see unfold but instead we got stuck with Lucy's Medical Mission. Ick!
Finally, Liberty came to her senses before Parker really did some damage to her. That boy needs to go back to the counselor who tried to help him after the Sam debacle. Parker needs serious mental help at this point; no coddling from Carly or pressuring from Jack. Mental help. Therapy. I hope his parents give it to him!
Until next Friday, fans!
