Restless Rant
Week of April 23 – 27:

To switch things up, this week’s edition of the Rant will be a day-by-day breakdown hitting on the events that stood out. Sound off with your comments after reading!

Monday – Cookies To Sell?
Mark it down in the history books – Victor claimed to be powerless! Of course, this was when Nick asked him to call in a favor with the judge on Daniel’s custody case. Unheard of! Later, Phyllis was ready to rip Daisy’s face off – loved the intensity, and this stuff still makes me think Daisy will end up dead with people like Phyllis and Lauren as suspects. At Crimson Lights, Sofia got up in Harmony’s face a bit (finally) and Harmony pretended Sarge was her boyfriend. Didn’t see that coming… Elsewhere, Ricky told Daisy he’ll be digging up dirt on his former boss – I still can’t decide if it works for me that he’s such a slimeball, but he’s definitely shaping up as a viable nemesis for tough cookie, Phyllis. Best scene of the episode – Jack opens his front door to Victor and asks if he’s selling cookies. Spew your drink across the room funny – it’s always such a treat when these two face-off with their one-liners!

Tuesday – A Generous Percentage For Lying.
Genevieve irritated me today, running from Victor to Tucker – and why would Tucker help her after she screwed him over? Meh. Lauren finally got to point her gun at Daisy – don’t tell me she wasn’t dying to do this since the day she acquired it! The whole thing that bothers me is how unrealistic it is that Daisy would even be allowed anywhere near Lauren, her building, her family, or her business. Delusional Daisy then ran to the penthouse looking for sympathy from Daniel – just bizarre. Over at Devon’s studio, he inexplicably encouraged Harmony and Neil to dance together, and then they all went to celebrate Devon’s success – except Harmony did a runner because she’s addicted to Neil, Neil left the party to chase after Harmony, and Tucker dumped Devon and Ashley to schmooze with Genevieve at the bar! Egad.

Wednesday – Temptation.
Today, Neil and Harmony held an inane conversation at the Chancellor estate. First off, Neil’s an arse. Why is it that he holds himself and his family members to such high standards in every aspect of life – yet he is utterly incapable of self-control when it comes to cheating? Secondly, this storyline feels irritatingly predictable – soap opera love triangle 101 – how about some totally unexpected twists ahead? Meanwhile, down at the station, Michael yelled at Phyllis for not telling him Lauren had a gun, but gave Jill a free pass. Huh? The scene with Lauren in her cell having a flashback was much appreciated as it gave a vivid reminder of why she is acting the way she is right now. Best scene of the day – Katherine working at Fenmore’s. Love Katherine, loved the comic relief!
