Welcome to Amy’s “One Life in a Week” for April 18 – 22:

After last week’s news, the show’s cancellation is still fresh in our minds. However, I’ve chosen to enjoy the ride as long as Llanview is still being brought into our homes. With that being said, I refuse to allow anyone to ruin my love of this show. On with my thoughts…

You don’t have to hide anymore.
Ford trying to comfort Tess brought me right back to the days of Tess and Nash. I love Tess’ feisty, devious and flirtatious side but have always enjoyed when that little bit of vulnerability comes through. In regards to men, she’s only really shown it to Nash and now Ford. If Tess stays in control for a bit longer, I wouldn’t mind a little serious action taking place between her and Ford.

That’s Niki Smith to you, bitch!
Tess opened up a whopper of a mental can of whoopass when she lured her mommy dearest, Niki Smith, out. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Niki. She’ll surely give us a bit more excitement than Viki has of late. Not that I blame Viki… Her life has gone down the tubes, and she could use a little R&R. Niki is sure to screw things up for someone along the way, but it’ll be fun to watch.

Buchanan rules don’t apply.
In Bo and Nora’s position, I side with Clint on this one. I’m not sure I could turn my son in for killing Eddie. Matthew’s right. Eddie was a human being all the same, but in this case it would be best to let dead dogs lie, if you will. On the other hand, if Matthew can’t live with what he did, he should be the one to turn himself in and face the crime. Really, it’s neither here nor there when you think about it. I’m sure Nora would be able to get Matthew off in the end anyway. I’ve had enough of the whodunit storyline, so let’s wrap it up. It’s not as though we have all the time in the world…

Please cancel the show.
“Access Llanview” that is. I was all for the added drama within the drama, but here again… If they’re taking away our soap, let’s not waste time with these unnecessary touches. We no longer have the luxury of enjoying scenes outside of the box.
