GH Rundown for the week of August 30 – September 3:
I felt GH was fairly boring last week, but I do have to admit I am enjoying Lisa’s craziness more than I thought I would. Even though it wasn’t the most exciting week in Port Charles, some noteworthy stuff did happen, so let’s get to it.
I’m going to credit Brianna Brown’s performance with pulling me into the “Fatal Attraction” storyline that’s happening with Lisa, Patrick and Robin. Despite not loving another strong woman on soaps being reduced to craziness over a man, I find Lisa’s behavior kind of fascinating. She is showing no signs of cracking and is committed to her victim role. She even got Matt to question whether or not Robin could be the one losing her mind, which was a bit disappointing on his part I have to say. I loved that Lisa fearlessly told Mac about her affair with Patrick right in front of him and Robin, but I thought Mac demanding Patrick never see his wife and child again was a bit much. The boiling stuffed animal in Robin’s lab was a pretty amusing nod to the movie and I find myself looking forward to what Lisa will do next.
Out of Her League.
Brook found herself on the outs last week as Carly again demonstrated how superior her manipulation skills were when Brook tried to out her to Lulu. Do not mess with the master little girl. I didn’t feel this storyline really went anywhere though and ended with a definite whimper. I was never thrilled with Carly’s plan to punish the lovebirds, but I would have liked it to have wrapped up with a little more gusto. I was also disappointed Brooke’s time at the Quartermaines didn’t last longer. There was definite storyline possibilities there. However, Nikolas for some reason felt the need to take her in, even after learning what she did to his sister Lulu and they are now getting ready to embark on a “My Fair Lady” type storyline. As I said before, I’m glad Nikolas is in a story that doesn’t involve Elizabeth and I see the possibilities, but I’m reserving judgment for now on this one.
Was it just me or was the shoot out involving Jason, Sam and eventually Lucky extremely boring? I have no idea why they spent so much time on it or why Lucky joined them.
I'm happy about two things that involved Brenda last week. First of all, I was glad Murphy expressed his worry about Brenda's safety. I'm not sure if he just didn't know about the attempt on her life, but he hasn't seemed too worried someone tried to slash her face, or worse, a couple of weeks ago. It was about time he got protective of her. Secondly, Brenda is finally interacting with someone we truly care about – Sonny. I haven't hated the Brenda stuff so far, even though all her scenes with Suzanne and Murphy have been kind of redundant, but it's not the most exciting return ever. I'm hoping now that Brenda and Sonny have seen each other, things will kick into high gear and she'll get her butt to Port Charles ASAP. What are your thoughts about this storyline so far? Tell us in our poll about Brenda's return.
I like the idea of Dante being there for his siblings now that Sonny has bailed on all of them. I would like to see more scenes between Michael and Kristina with Dante being the big brother. I'd say Morgan too, but only if Aaron Refvem was still in the role. I really miss that kid.
Sinner or Saint?
Lucky visited this theme again last week as he told Lulu he was feeling restless and that part of him wished he could have taken Johnny's job offer. He has a new storyline coming up that will allow the character and the actor to get more creative, which I'm hoping will be fun to watch. Keep an eye on the spoilers for more.
That's all I got this time around. What did you think about last week's GH? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
