Restless Rant
Week of March 14 – 18:

There were only three episodes this week, and I have to say that I definitely had a favorite scene that stood out to me. Keep reading…

Whatever it takes!
The stand out scene of the week for me was Katherine lashing out at her son, Tucker, after learning about his role in the lawsuit against Victor. It was very powerful, and a reminder of how lucky we are that Katherine Chancellor is still taking names and kicking butt. I feel invested in the Tucker/Katherine relationship and hope they someday grow closer again – this means I’ll relish the story for the long haul. Kudos.

Knee-jerk wedding.
I’m not a huge fan of Victor’s knee-jerk reaction to his life circumstances in marrying Diane, nor do I like wishy-washy Diane going along with it while dreaming about sex with Nick. However, it’s vintage Victor, and there are bound to be some great scenes with Nikki and Diane, and Nick and Victor as the conflicts continue.

Nikki the shaky lady.
I love how Nikki trembles and struggles within herself before she falls off the wagon – it doesn’t get old. As for Deacon, it will be interesting to see if he’ll persevere in trying to make Nikki believe him, or if he’ll fade into the woodwork for now. I hope he sticks around.

Dash of romance.
Lauren and Michael, and Billy and Vikki both had tiffs this week and then made up romantically. I noticed and appreciated this, simply because the show is sometimes lacking in ‘love in the afternoon’. That said, I was confused about Vikki, a grown woman, carrying a stuffed dog around town. Okay.
