GH Rundown for the Week of June 15!
This week brought us Nikolas’ choice, Martha Bryne, Coleman and not enough of my favorite new couple!
Nikolas went back and forth all week regarding Rebecca and I found the scene where the two of them talked about their relationship at the casino in front of Ethan very odd. I mean, why would Nikolas, who is an extremely private person, have such a revealing conversation in front of anyone, let alone Ethan, whom he barely knows? To Tyler Christopher’s credit, you could totally feel Nikolas’ discomfort, which made it almost painful to watch.
Of course Nikolas eventually gave himself permission to date Rebecca, and unless I’m totally off base, he intentionally bought Rebecca a dress like the one Emily wore the night she died. I know he said he was celebrating the differences and similarities between the sisters by being with Rebecca, but did he really have to dress her up like his dead ex? Kind of creepy.
I’ll take any excuse to have Coleman show up, but Johnny playing classical music at Jake’s is a bit out of place isn’t it? Doesn’t he know something more fitting for a hole in the wall corner bar? And while I understand they needed to have all the characters at the same place to confront each other and learn new things about Brianna Hughes’ death and that they’ve been to other such shady bars in the past, would classy Diane and Alexis really have an after work drink at a dive like Jake’s instead of the high brow Metro Court bar?
Speaking of Coleman, GH has such a great cast of peripheral characters that aren’t anywhere near the front burner, but who show up once in a while to, more often than not, provide some much needed comic relief. With so many great recurring characters, I wondered who your favorite was.
Back to Johnny, he was pretty funny with Jason in the woods, wasn’t he? Jason’s reaction to Johnny yammering on was like he was dealing with Spinelli or Maxie’s nonsense. It was priceless. And Johnny’s scenes with Olivia were such a tease! I wanted him to let her cook him dinner and see what else they heated up! From the looks of things, my wish might just be granted this week.
Martha Byrne debuted this week as Andrea Floyd and I think she is doing an excellent job of creating a character who is completely opposite of Lily Walsh Snyder from As the World Turns, with whom she is so closely associated with. It must be hard for actors who have played one role for most of their lives to be accepted as someone completely different and often times it doesn’t work. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised to see absolutely no trace of the usually straight and narrow, humble Lily in her portrayal of the hardened, win at all costs, politician’s wife.
Does anyone even care why Kate is allowing Giselle to blackmail her? I doubt it and the longer they drag it out the less anyone is going to be interested in finding out. It’s so sporadic as it is and now Kate’s gone for two weeks? It’s such an afterthought that if they actually ever do flesh this story out, will there be any point?
There was more Michael drama this week, but it was pretty much just more of the same so I don’t have a lot to say about it. However, I do think Drew Garrett (Michael) and Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) are fitting in nicely with the rest of the cast, but that’s really the only thing that stood out for me this week about it.
That’s all I got for this week. How about you? Share your thoughts on GH below!
