Lulu's back! (Soaps.com)

(Week of March 30 – April 3)
Going back to the warehouse where Michael was shot was painful to watch. What’s more, I felt my face flinch when Carly went on to wonder about the things that were going through his head around those few frantic moments that followed the gunfire. I’m so ready to wake Michael up and see Carly’s euphoria. If only all parents could be so fortunate. Have you thought about what you would do in her situation? Would you risk his life on a long shot of bringing him around? At this point, I think I would.
How hilarious was it when Claudia poked holes in an entire box of condoms? I guess I thought we’d see the ol’ pop a tic tac instead of a birth control pill trick and was pleasantly surprised. Of course, we’ll probably be subjected to one of soaps most overused storylines of ‘who’s the daddy?’, but still, I’m looking forward to it. Claudia as a mother? Now that will be entertaining. I predict that she will fall in love with her baby and thrive in motherhood – unlike someone else we know.
I thought Sonny did a great job of talking to Robin about the absolute necessity for her to give in to drug therapy. I actually thought she was listening and would follow through with his advice, didn’t you? Seeing her tear up her prescription ticked me off. I know, I know, we need to empathize with her condition, but still, it made me mad.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm somewhat intrigued by whatever Rebecca's secret is. Somewhat, not over the moon, but somewhat.
Seeing Lulu all fired up in an effort to beat Ethan at his own game was interesting. She hasn't had that much spunk in, well, ever. She was her father's daughter and it was good too see her engaged in something other than Johnny. I don't necessarily like Johnny with Maxie, but it's clearly time to break JoLu up and see what other chemistry combinations can draw us in.
Kristina made the honor roll? Obviously, the writers are giving us nuggets to support the fact that she will soon appear as a teenager. I first picked up on it a few weeks ago when Alexis was telling her to do her homework over the phone. She hung up in frustration as if the mother-daughter relationship was going through teen angst. I can't wait to see what she'll look like as a teen, she was such a cutie pie of a girl. I can just feel the summer teen storylines coming on, can't you? Every year in an effort to engage the younger summer audience the main characters seem to get back-burnered.
I didn't have a favorite line this week. Did you? Nothing funny, nothing especially poignant, nothing notable for this fan.
So there you have it guys, everything that meant anything to me last week. You?
