Restless Rant
Week of June 25 – 29:

Monday – Will You Marry Me?
I didn’t actually watch this episode, so just a few comments from the recap: The Adam/Chelsea stuff seems very genuine. It appears that Adam does love Chelsea – perhaps for different reasons than he loves Sharon. The dynamic is different, although the common denominator is that both women believe in him, like his mother did. In any case, the scene in the rain was probably truly romantic – sorry I missed it! The Daisy disappearance and Abby abduction were both developing news on this episode. How great was it to see Abby getting back to her naughty Naked Heiress self! I’ve been waiting for that for a while. Carmine may have started out with an agenda, but does anyone doubt Abby will end up completely in charge? So funny! Meanwhile, Tucker was there for Ashley when she realized her daughter was missing, which was terrific. It’s realistic that in the face of an event like this everything negative that happened between them would fall by the wayside – so glad Ash allowed herself to lean on him!

Tuesday – Witch Hunt.
Katherine, like Victor, isn’t quite as worried about Abby as everyone else. I quite liked this – they’ve been around the block a few times and know the score! Nikki, meanwhile, used Abby’s disappearance as an excuse to beeline it over to the ranch to see Victor. Sigh. Sharon appeared doing her ‘Lady of the Manor’ impression, so Nikki retreated. The helicopter signaled the arrival of none other than Ronan Malloy – a very odd choice on Victor’s part considering the animosity between the two, but however we get Ronan back, we’ll take him. Meanwhile, in a motel somewhere, as expected, Carmine realized he was in just a bit over his head. He and Abby sparred – loved the chemistry – and Abby scored a hug. Yumsters. At the penthouse, Daniel and Phyllis did a little verbal dancing as they tried to determine what the other might be hiding re: Daisy’s disappearance. When that proved fruitless, they headed down to Crimson Lights just in time to hear Michael scolding Kevin for trying to help Daisy. Honestly, Kevin has been on my last nerve with his defending Daisy crap. Over at the Club, Ricky rooted through Daisy’s purse in his suite. Yikes!

Wednesday – Clean Slate It.
Today it came out that the blood on Daisy’s scarf was Daniel’s – so the stuff started to hit the fan. Kevin irritated me even more by tattling on Daniel to Heather. With friends like him… Yeesh. Ricky, of course, dug Daniel a deeper hole by making it look like he’d used Daisy’s credit card and phone. Meanwhile, Genoa City’s answer to Nancy Drew, aka Eden Baldwin, showed up at Ricky’s door, played him, and went back to search his suite. When she found Daisy’s wallet and phone, we knew her goose was cooked.
