Unfortunately a new character was added to the Oakdale
canvas this week: Celia Ortega, whom TPTB expect us to believe shipped
herself in a box of oranges from Montega! Do they think the fans are
stupid? I disliked her from the instant I saw her I cannot stand her
whiny voice and horrible stare. Maybe it’s the resemblance to Passions’
Theresa Lopez Fitzgerald (whom I detest) which made me dislike her from
the beginning. I’m upset that she was sent to live with Alison and
Aaron, whom are one of my favorite couples on the show. Last thing they
need is Celia to drag them into storyline boredom. Who cares if Rafael
is ashamed to go back to Montega and admit his failures? I certainly
JJ has become the most annoying, irritating character in Oakdale!! The
way he referred to Parker as “he” and the tone in which he said it made
me want to slap him. I am annoyed by Jack’s previous lack of discipline
towards him, however he finally made JJ apologize to Parker (who was
great this week) for breaking his mug and all the previous things he did
To get Barbara off the hook Rosanna will… blame herself? It makes
absolutely no sense! Rosanna is a billionaire and can afford the best
lawyers in the country, if not the world. Why not hire them to save
Barbara instead of blaming herself? And why blame herself and not
Phyllis, whom I suspect has a close relationship with James. Anyway,
more Ryan drama is sure to come now that Barbara did not sign the plea
deal. Things are not looking good for Emily who will perjure herself to
lock Barbara away, but the whole plan may blow up in her face and as
Barbara said she will be left holding “a bag of lies”. Poor Emily will
never drink liquids again- everything she’s drank for the past two
months has been spiked. It was hilarious to see Rosanna dumping 10
lemons in her water to cover up the smell of the hypnotizing drug.
Rosanna and Tom’s “second guessing” trigger word will resurface all of
the fake memories Rosanna planted and should make Emily doubt herself.
The most heartbreaking scene of the week was Henry crying outside the
cottage after Reverend MacKenzie had left. Finally Katie saw the light
and realized Henry has been deeply in love with her for ages. It was
great to see Katie beating up herself for hurting Henry, she was finally
redeemed in my book for defending Henry to Mike, which showed she truly
appreciates everything he has done for her. Henry’s gift to Katie of the
new, blue, borrowed and old earring was so sweet it almost had me in
tears (and I rarely get emotional over things on soaps).
Once again Carly and Lily’s schemes to bring down Julia backfired. Keith
is not as they thought a man Julia was once involved with- he is her
brother. I don’t understand why Holden laid it down to Lily, he doubted
Julia and thought she was cheating on him. IF he had been so trustworthy
of her he would have never barged into the hotel room the way he did.
Holden is moving on with the divorce but wants a marriage counselor for
the kids. Hopefully the marriage counselor will help them save their
marriage and spare us a further, more intense Holden-Julia pairing. What
did Julia do in El Paso? So far we only know it’s something
“unforgivable”. My guess is murder but it could work out some other way.
Only time will tell.
I find it stupid that World Wide wants to begin a line of spas. Surely
there are bigger, more interesting and profitable ventures World Wide
can look into. Hopefully the trip to Napa won’t push the impending
Dusty-Sierra pairing closer. Street Jeans is expanding and is now moving
onto television. Tune in next week for a Scott Reeves appearance with
Jen and Craig.
