ATWT Opinion Article
When will Lucy Montgomery learn to take others advice
and stay out of situations? Her involvement in Dusty’s boxing activities
led to her being held hostage, now her refusal to allow the police to
look for Craig has once again put her in harm’s way along with Rafael
and they are stuck in the middle of freezing nowhere. Her relationship
with Dusty took away all her independence and ability to reason, she has
been reduced to being Dusty’s puppy, following him around everywhere. I
was not a fan of the pairing between Dusty and Lucy, however I’ll take
“Lusty” over the pairing of Lucy and Rafael which seems the direction
The Powers That Be (TPTB) are taking.
Another possible couple may be
Sierra and Jordan. Their Christmas tree experience is a typical way to
start out a romance. However my biggest question is will this
relationship continue to evolve now that Chris Beteem (Jordan) has been
fired or will TPTB just drop this storyline? Certainly a recast will be
needed if there are long term plans for Jordan, although many fans feel
he has no purpose on the show other than the storyline revolving around
Rosanna, Cabot and James.
Sierra was revealed as the mastermind behind
Craig’s kidnapping- no surprise there. I’m loving this storyline, for
the first time in months Craig showed his vulnerable side and broke down
when he was literally haunted by the loved ones he had hurt. Now that he
has figured out he is being watched he is determined to fake repentance
to get out of the monastery and take out his revenge on whoever sent him
Hopefully Craig really will turn a new leaf, his character
crossed the point beyond redemption when he staged Lucy’s kidnapping,
this is the perfect way to redeem him.
Someone who is way beyond redemption is Barbara. She continues to drug
Emily who is groggy and under her control. This storyline needs more
airtime, I am a big fan of Barbara and love every storyline she is in,
but where IS Dr. Decker?? I keep hoping he will show up and attack
Barbara, is he planning a Christmas returned or has he joined Susan in
The Carly-Jack-Julia Saga may be finally coming
to an end now that Jack chose Carly as his true love and dumped Julia. I
honestly thought they were over when she signed the divorce papers, a
true example of Carly’s love for Jack: If you really love someone you
have to let them go. Jack’s amnesia has really revitalized their love
for each other and has reminded viewers what makes this couple so great.
I am sad to see this storyline finish its course, since I have enjoyed
every second of it. It would be interesting if Julia ended up pregnant
and things twisted up yet again.
Someone is terrorizing Rosanna with
memories of Cabot, this has caused some animosity between her and Will,
who appears to be guilty. I’m glad the issue of Will’s past actions
returning is being addressed, it is hard to believe no one besides Lily
questioned his recovery.
Not enough scenes were shown this week with
Alison and Aaron and Mike, Jennifer and Katie. Where is Henry?? He
should’ve been there to receive Katie with open arms and catch her up on
all the latest Oakdale happenings. Next week should provide more action
between these pairings.
High Points of the Week: Carly and Jack being reunited, Craig in the
Low Points of the Week: Lucy and Rafael (5 days a week!), Lisa and her
“persuasive” conversation with Jack (regarding Julia)
