John's lovelife and manhood is questined! (Soaps.com)
Welcome to Amy’s
“One Life in a Week!” (December 1 – 5)
Hi everyone, and welcome back for another fun week in Llanview! It’s been a great week for returns, new construction, and a few surprises too! Let’s not wait a moment longer and see what I thought of Llanview this week!
Starr confronts Todd who takes a lashing from Viki!
“I thought if I could have this baby and raise it like a Manning, with the kind of love I have for you, Jack and Sam, then maybe someday, when you’re older, I could tell you what I did and give her back to you – maybe someday you’d forgive me,” Todd pleaded with Starr… Oh, boy, where do I even begin with this one? We all know that Todd had no intentions of giving the baby back to Starr when she was older, but in Todd’s defense, he may very well believe that he would have done that after realizing what he was going to do was wrong. Poor Starr… No matter how upset she was with her father, I could still see the love for him in her eyes and her want to forgive. However, the writers have their hands full because I don’t know how they are going to bring this family, as a whole, back together. Is this where Téa Delgado’s return will come in? Stay tuned!
Nora takes a trip down memory lane – and so should we!
In light of Nora sharing her past ‘violation’ with Marty this week, I thought it was only appropriate that I include a video of how things went down after Daniel Colson was arrested – and how Nora confronted him! Enjoy this old blast from the past video clip, and let it leave you with this thought… “Is Daniel the makings for the next serial killer to return to Llanview?” He could be – if he ever gets out of Statesville!
Thanksgiving brings all together at the Buenos Dias Café!
“We’re not in Texas, and this is not the Bonjour. This is the Buenos Dias, and I built it for you,” Charlie professed to Viki… Monday’s episode couldn’t have been any sweeter. One of the main reasons I was so upset to see the Texas storyline end was because I absolutely loved the scenes at the Bonjour Café, and now we have a complete replica in Angels Square – along with Moe and Noelle too! No matter what troubles occurred in Llanview on Thanksgiving Day, everyone came together as one and celebrated the holiday in peace – and it was just an all around pleasant episode!
Roxy plays Dr. Phil then spruces up Noelle!
"You have a pair of big ones to quit your daily grind in these economic hard times," Roxy badgered John about his love life then asked, "So, which is it going to be? Blair or Marty? Marty's looking hot, who would've even known her brain got scrambled…" I think it's a gimme that once again, Roxy has won the spot for funniest quote of the week, but guess what, she's going to share it with Noelle who looked in the mirror at the hairdo that Roxy gave her and said, "This is not the Blair Cramer bob!" If the show ever got rid of Roxy, I think I would have a fit! Between her and David Vickers, who we don't get to see enough, she keeps Llanview hopping! And now with Moe and Noelle adding a little 'hickness' to the canvas, bravo writers - once again!
Marty's claws come out at the sight of Blair!
"Todd told me we were mortal enemies, is that true?" Marty asked Blair... It's good to see that even a memory loss hasn't destroyed this rivalry! While I do feel sorry for what Marty's going through, I think she has something backwards - or just isn't admitting her feelings where John is concerned. Blair may have been fishing for information as to why John was with Marty at the diner, but Marty clearly was jealous herself at the fact that John has been sleeping with Blair! Did anyone else notice this?
Dr. Joplin makes a confession then is blown away by guilt - literally!
"You all deserve to know exactly how this tragedy came to happen," Dr. Joplin told Starr's family… Talk about things spiraling out of control! Though the dear doctor blamed herself for the death of Starr's baby, who in turn is really alive as Jessica's, would she feel any different knowing it was still her fault that Jessica's baby was the one who really died? I mean, she was Jessica's doctor as well, right? I know, that's besides the point, but for her to take her own life… Talk about drama! I'm loving the tension surrounding Starr getting so close to her own child, and Tess trying to come out and warn everyone to the fact! I just wish more people knew about the baby switch - ones who were being blackmailed to keep the secret! Then I wouldn't be the only one on pins and needles waiting for someone - anyone - other than Tess to find out the truth! Speaking of Tess… What did you think of her scenes with Brody? Can anyone say hot, hot, hot?!
As always, thanks for stopping by to read my thoughts - and for leaving your own! Whether you agree or disagree with mine, I encourage everyone to jot down their own likes and dislikes of the week! Please don't forget to take a moment to vote in my new poll below!
