Aidan tells Kendall that the Feds will be at them in 3 hours. How is it
Zach not only found them but got there in less than 10 minutes?
I had to laugh at Aidan making fun of and imitating TK perfectly saying his wedding vows and asking Kendall
ever shaves? I am going to miss Spotted Dick very much!
JR sure went through his cancer treatment in the express lane. I
could not believe it when Tad announced he was in remission. On another
note, Marissa and JR have to be even more boring as a couple than
Frankie and Randi.
Did the writers (or Pratt) forget that Jake has been Chief of Staff
at PV Hospital? I found David mentioning that maybe some day Jake would
be COS, and thought to myself, been there done that.
I agree with Dan Kroll that Zach, Erica and Ryan’s plan to get Adam
to remember what they were hoping to confirm was not only very cruel but
extremely dangerous. They all know he has a heart condition, and even if
they were right and that he would remember it was Annie that murdered
his brother, wouldn’t that info cause him extreme emotional stress. On
top of that, when they found out he was taken to the hospital, they did
not give a second thought to his health or that they had a hand in
causing it. No, not them, self righteous Erica and Ryan just plow their
way through into getting the truth and saving their precious Kendall. I
also loved the way the cop Jesse told to watch them just let them waltz
right out of the station. I also remembered that it was just a short
time ago Erica was pissed at Ryan for coming between her daughter and
Zach. Remember the famous card game between Ryan and Zach? Kendall was
on Ryan’s side and her mother stood behind Zach.
Maybe it is me but Kendall is just plain boring to me by now. On the
plus side, congratulations to Alicia and her husband on the birth
November 4th of their first child, a girl named Willow Lenore.
Oh, no! The clown nose has reappeared. I also laughed as one more PV’er
“jokingly” says clowns can be frightening. I never realized so
many people on AMC and in real life are really that scared of clowns.
I mentioned a while back how the writers conveniently forgot about
Annie and her asthma, but glad to see they brought it up when she and
Scott were trapped in the Fusion elevator. Out of curiosity, why do
people always panic when they are stuck in an elevator that they will
run out of air? Is that really possible?
I really hated it when Ryan flat out lied to Emma about his feelings
for Annie. I do not mean to suggest that he go into explicit detail how he
feels, but glossing over it is wrong, at least to me. He could have
simply told Emma that yes, even though he and her mommy are not married
or in love with each other anymore, it doesn’t change how much they
love her. I think he could have simply told Emma that no, he does not
hate her mommy, but he is unhappy with some of the things she has done
in the past few months. He did somewhat redeem himself when he told her
he could not hate the woman who gave him Emma as his daughter.
How screwed up is Emma going to become when they eventually SORAS
her? I am really going to miss the children now on the show when they
move out west. I doubt their parents and families even if ask are going
to uproot themselves knowing that the lifespan of a soap opera child is
very short. I was surprised to hear from the father of the twins playing
Ian that they had been asked to make the move. He told me at the time he
and his wife had not made any decision.
I am always amazed at how perfectly characters get made up whether it is the
Crystal Ball or a Halloween Party. Are we supposed to believe Adam applied his own makeup for the Frankenstein costume? Except for
Scott, I find it hard to believe how perfect they all looked. Especially
how Bailey who at the last minute “borrowed” Colby’s costume and did her
own makeup as well. And while I am at it, why wasn’t Colby wearing the
costume Bailey had on?
I really was let down when Ryan finally figured out who killed
Stuart. I had been waiting all this time to be able to rub his and
everyone else’s noses in the fact that they were so wrong about it being
Annie. The big reveal really let me down.
Only at PV Hospital does a nurse just give out any information to
someone, (even if it was Erica Kane) about a patient’s room or
condition. Heck, they don’t even give visitors to residing guests the
room numbers for the guests at hotels.
Why doesn’t anyone ever actually do a DNA test on a baby for the
right reasons? Amanda was never sure who the father was, and after
eliminating JR she just assumed David was the father. I would think that
Jake would run the test for his own knowledge and maybe the possibility
that David is not the father. The same is true about little Jenny.
Everybody believes Tad is her father, why? Simply because David told
them that? That is reason enough to question her paternity. Finally,
even with Amanda and Jake agreeing to no sex during the conception and
pregnancy, isn’t it possible that she conceived on their last night
together? Why isn’t David squawking about that little detail?
How do you think Stuart would want Adam, Annie, and Scott to handle
the situation? I know he would not want Kendall to be in prison, but he
would not want anything to happen to Adam either.
I am terribly saddened that veterans of AMC, Ray MacDonnell, Aiden
Turner, Walt Willey, Jennifer Bassey, and Jill Larson, were not only let go
from the show but didn’t even get the respect they deserved (except
for Aiden Turner) with a decent storyline exit. Shame, Shame on TPTB at
I will be back next week with more
observations and questions.
Well, that’s about all for now. Have a great week.
I would love to hear from any of my readers.
