GH Rundown for the week of November 9.
Last week wasn’t quite as exciting as the one before when Claudia met her demise, but they can’t all be ‘can’t miss’ weeks, and besides, this week James Franco begins his two month stint on GH, so I’m okay with a little breather.
A Serious Matter
I feel that Lulu should take Dante being a cop a little more seriously. She jokes around about it in public like she’s ribbing him for a funny hobby. As he keeps telling her, if Sonny finds out, he could get killed. So, Lulu, for the sake of my current GH obsession, please rein it in a little bit.
Growing On Me
The Nik/Liz/Lucky triangle has gotten more interesting for me. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the re-addition of Jonathan Jackson as Lucky, the feeling that it’s all coming to a head, or the fact that Luke now knows, but I’m looking forward to seeing the fallout from Lucky actually finding out the truth about his brother sleeping with his fiancée. Did anyone else wish Elizabeth had actually told Lucky the truth, instead of it only being in her imagination? I would love to see a character unexpectedly blurt out the truth like that just once. However, Elizabeth’s speech at Emily’s grave was well done and pretty honest about how she wanted to stop wanting Nikolas, but basically her heart and body wouldn’t let her. That went a long way with me in understanding where she was coming from.
I found Nikolas to be a bit annoying though when he butted in on Lucky and Elizabeth’s romantic dinner. I don’t think Lucky could have been more clear about him not being welcome there.
The Mob Life
Michael is quickly turning into his father, either out of reaction to what he did or because that’s where he was always headed, but either way, I liked the scene where he requested that Milo and Max put the fear of God into Kiefer to keep him away from Kristina. I love the Giambetti brothers and chuckled at their eagerness to protect Sonny’s daughter. The scene itself could have been better, but I did laugh at Mike ignoring Kiefer’s pleas for help. Although, I’m not sure why he played along. Did Max and Milo fill him in when they placed their food order?
That said, Sonny knows Michael sent Max and Milo after Kiefer, so why isn’t he doing anything to find out if Kiefer is in fact bad for his daughter?
I’m glad Jason is willing to give up killing people in order to be worthy of Michael's hero worship. I just wonder how long it will last. Not long probably since the mystery person has targeted him.
What was with Anthony’s anguish after Johnny told him he believed Claudia was dead. Didn’t he basically tell Joey Limbo his daughter was expendable? Maybe he wanted to be the one to take her out instead of his rival, Sonny, or maybe he’s just crazy.
I love the humor on the show, but there hasn’t been too much lately. However, aside from Max and Milo, we did get a sliver of it last week when Alexis busted in on Jason and Sam getting down and dirty in the office. Despite the fact that they should have locked the door, it was pretty funny when Jason kept telling them there was another door, when the women clumsily tried to open the one Alexis locked from the inside. I love Jason’s deadpan reactions to things.
We finally got to see Spinelli and Maxie together, but it was basically a brush off scene. Why couldn’t we get more happy Spinelli and Maxie before having Maxie seemingly grow tired of him? I really hope that isn’t where they are going, but I fear it.
That’s about it for me this week. What did you think? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
