Okay. As much as I wholeheartedly believe that
Anna belongs on General Hospital (and Skye belongs on AMC), I do
have to admit I like her anyway. She sits quietly and lets David
talk to his cousin. Usually on soaps, the in-laws are always butting
in with their over-priced two-cent opinions. Anna's non-interference
is very cool. And refreshing. And now I sound like a mouthwash
So David has this Walton-like fantasy of a home-life. I don't get
why he wants Maggie in it. Most people don't include the cousins
they barely know in their family fantasies. I know *my* cousins
rather well and I still wouldn't include them in any sort of
home-life fantasy. Even if I had them. Which I don't. Just so we're
clear on that.
Just as I am a big sucker for female-bonding scenes, I am equally as
big a one for male. Ryan and Leo's scenes at SOS were quite amusing.
We had Ryan surprised that Leo had gotten engaged to Greenlee
*again*, while Leo was just as shocked that Kendall is Ryan's
girlfriend. And they made a toast to their hot, complicated women.
Line of the Week goes to Leo for, "I'd suggest that we double-date
sometime, but I'm not sure we'd survive."
Mia has to be the most naive person *ever*. She takes Trey at his
word that he needs $20,000 for her son while he's also saying that
she can't tell anybody. Yeah, that's not suspicious. But Hayley (in
a scene sans Mateo, yay!) interferes and gets Adam to offer a
specialist for William (I wonder if Trey was even being truthful
about the boy's name). Naturally, Trey blows his top when he doesn't
get the money. Well, it's not like well-thought-out plans are a
trend for this show's characters. See below.
Well, what was probably the best week of Kendall's life (last week
with the Ryan sexcapades) is followed by what could very well be the
worst. Her world pretty much came crashing down around her. Three
scenes stick out the most in my mind from this week. Mostly because
of Alicia Minshew. Her expressions speak volumes. I'm still
incredibly surprised the casting people made such a good find when
replacing Kendall. They don't have such a good track record. JR and
Jamie immediately pop into my head.
The first scene that stuck out was at the hospital. Erica gets all up
in Kendall's grill about giving Bianca booze. It turns into a big
shout-fest outside the ER (that I'm surprised none of the hospital
staff tried to break up. They were really loud). They are both
crying as they scream at each other. Well, *Kendall* is. Erica is
pretty dry-eyed (surprise, surprise).
The second scene (scenes, actually) is Greenlee taunting Kendall at
Revlon. Boy was Greenlee cruel. Ouch. I can't understand how
Greenlee could look at the crushed expression on Kendall's face and
keep twisting the knife like that. I couldn't do it. I'm not that
And the very last scene on Friday was so excellent. Kendall comes
dragging into the restaurant where Ryan, Erica and Stamp await. She
walks in with none of her usual flair and looks completely numb and
drained. She sits down and pulls out a gun. Dang, it's going to be a
But wow, how much did Erica's plan backfire on her, huh? Her goal
was to get Kendall hired to Revlon overseas and keep Greenlee from
being lured away. What did she get instead? Greenlee taking a job at
the competition and Kendall waving a gun in her face. Good plan,
Speaking of Jamie (several paragraphs ago), what a baby. He
overhears a fight between Tad and Edmund and it makes him cry? I bet
he gets eaten alive by the kids at school.
Clothes: I mentioned Ryan's brown sweater last week. Somehow, I
forgot to mention Kendall's turquoise top. Not a bad color, but it
had little flower bud-thingies all along the neckline. Ick. Also,
the end-of-the-week outfit Kendall was wearing was also a good color
for her. Unfortunately, the ruffle down the shirt front ruined it as
well. I swear, if the clothing manufacturers would just *stop
sewing* on those last things, they'd have good clothes. When will
