Week of June 30
This week of As the World Turns didn’t feature much romance, but this
didn’t matter because the action scenes were top-quality.
First of all, the change of Walker Daniels is suspicious. When he was
brought into the show as a nice, polite forensic pathologist, I had no
clue that he could up and just be rude to Hal. Granted, Hal had no
business telling him to stop being a bully when Hal’s a bully himself,
still. And the scene where Walker was spying on Rick and Susan was just
creepy. I almost shivered looking at his conniving face. It’s obvious
he’s now a candidate in the Memorial murders.
I thought it was hilarious when Craig and Jack were having their scenes
the porch this week. The “tell me a bedtime story” “I miss you” “I love
you” dialogue was just more hilarious with Mike and Parker laughing in
background. The child actor playing Parker is great to watch in a time
which child actors on soaps aren’t exactly believable.
The wedding between Jack and Carly was fantastic, since the two should
have been together already, but what really got to me was when Carly
Jack the baby was his. I was pretty shocked along with everybody else,
since the baby had more of a chance to be Mike’s, but very relieved. I
almost cried along with Jack when he found out the news. It was touching
to see Mike’s sensitive side once he found out the truth, but I was
annoyed that Molly was the one who was comforting him. It should have
On a related note, the dress that Carly wore for the wedding was almost
hideous. Maura West’s beautiful face made up for it, but it wasn’t
a stunning wedding dress. Jack’s attire similarly left something to be
desired. I know they never intended on getting married, but I couldn’t
help cringing as I watched Carly make her entrance.
The police have finally found the well; too bad the police had nothing
do with it. James Stenbeck and Lucy Montgomery had to lend a hand to its
discovery. I’m just happy that we will no longer see Rose and Lily stuck
in the well, because that scene became really old really fast. I’m
fueled up that Paul will return next week in the form of Roger Howarth;
I’m almost sure that was the person who was watching the goings on
Brackett, Rose, and Paul at the end of this week’s show.
As usual, the Aliris scenes were terrific this week. Next week Chris
give Alison a birthday surprise, wonder what it will be??
Best scene of the week: Craig, Jack, Mike, and Parker having a great
on the porch.
Honorable mention: Alison and Chris scenes.
That’s all for this week.
