Farah (Gigi) rocks her new style! (Soaps.com)
Welcome to Amy’s
“One Life in a Week!” (June 1 – June 5)
Brody admitted that he loved Jessica, and though Jessica has not only lost a child who she thought was hers, and now has to deal with the death of the real Chloe, not too many characters get to have another ‘great love’ waiting there to help pick up the pieces. Brody has become another Nash, in my eyes, for Jessica, and I look forward to watching these two grow.
How else was Viki supposed to get Bess under control… of course, with Jean Randolph! I must admit, I wish, for once, the writers could just let Jessica get through her issues without having one of Viki’s alters there to guide her – as if we haven’t seen them enough over the years. While Viki’s D.I.D. storyline is played out, I think there could be many more plot twists involving Jessica’s D.I.D., without Niki or Jean getting involved. Bree Williamson gave us another stellar performance this week. There are not too many actresses who can pull off the emotions like Bree does, and again, she broke my heart and brought me to tears when she realized that her baby died – it was like losing Nash all over again… for both of us!
As you know, I’ve given Marcie a pretty hard time – in regards to this whole baby mess. However, I applauded her for telling Michael that she felt bad being happy while everyone else would be forced to lose Hope – again – and her concern for Jessica’s state of mind made her redeemable to me. With that being said, I hope the baby stays in Llanview, with her parents, Cole and Starr, because these two are no longer a couple of teens who aren’t ready for a child. They’ve had to go through so much since Hope’s birth that it would be almost unforgivable, in most fans’ eyes, if the writers allowed Marcie and Michael to take baby Hope away with them.
Either Stacy is really off her rocker, or she’s a woman who desperately wants to snag the love of her life. Sorry folks, I think this girl is insane – to take a punch to the eye just to get a guy to notice her. When will the writers put us out of our misery? This is a bit too much, and I wish, in a perfect world, that Stacy would come forward, admit what she’s done then allow everyone to move on. I guess if Rex ends up screwing things up and sleeping with the black widow then I wouldn’t object to Gigi indulging in ‘a sympathy one-nighter’ with Schuyler, as these two definitely have great chemistry! Don’t get me wrong, in the end, I do want Rex and Gigi to find their way back to each other, and I loved seeing Gigi finally lay the smack down on Stacy - and get a DNA sample at the same time! Speaking of Rex, if you haven’t seen my theory yet, on who I think could be Rex’s father, be sure to stop by the One Life to Live News Room, check it out, vote in the poll and leave me a comment on your ideas. So far, the majority, 29% of you, think I'm on to something. On a side note, I love Farah Fath’s (Gigi) new look! When talking to John-Paul (Rex), he told me that Farah is happiest when her hair is short, but it appears she’s let it grow out just a bit, and she rocks the style!
Fish’s relationship with Kyle has intrigued me, and I’m starting to think there’s a lot more to their college days than Fish wants to let on. With him now the third wheel at Layla’s apartment, we’re going to see more of this come out, so stay tuned!
I end my thoughts this week with Nora, Clint, Bo, Dorian and Ray… While I’m upset that Ray will be leaving Llanview next week, as I would have liked to have seen how things evolved between him and Dorian, I’m already sick – like yesterday - of the Bo/Nora/Clint triangle. Nora and Clint may be able to be happy as a couple, but they’ll never be able to have a front burner storyline like she and Bo have had – or could ever have. Do you agree? If not, I’ve love to hear your theories. In other parts of the Buchanan family, I’m still liking the interaction between Destiny and Matthew and am all for Rachel and Shaun hooking up. However, this mystery brother of Shaun and Destiny's is going to play a key part in all of their lives!
Before you head out for the weekend, be sure to vote in this week's poll about the ending of the baby switch storyline, and please leave me your comments about the week below – I can’t wait to get your take on things! Thanks for stopping by for another week’s worth of my Llanview rants and look me up on Facebook, as I’m bound to be posting more soapy scoops over there this weekend! The soap world never sleeps – and neither do I!
Are you happy with how the baby switch storyline ended?(surveys)
See you back here next Friday for another week's worth of Amy's "One Life In A Week!"
