Week of 7/25/05 thru 7/29/05
Tragedy struck this week in
Oakdale. I’m not amazed at the depths Craig will go to keep his child,
after all, he did kidnap his own daughter just to look good in her eyes.
I was a bit disappointed with the way Rosanna reacted when Craig was
trying to drive her off the road though, the old Rosanna Cabot would
slammed back trying to drive Craig off the road. Her little scream was
unconvincing. Sadly Rosanna has slipped into a coma (guess this is how
Cady McClain will be written off) before she could tell Paul the truth
about the babies, I doubt the “wrong foot” clue will become significant
I feel pity towards Emily. If
she hasn’t realized Paul is still in love with Rosanna she’s more stupid
than what I imagined. I wasn’t happy when she had a look of satisfaction
on her face when the nurse told her Rosanna might never recover.
I loved the final moments Paul
and Carly shared with Rosanna. We got to see the human side of Paul and
how Rosanna’s love changed him for the better, he’s been too cold and
frivolous lately. Over time Carly and Rosanna developed a great
sister/sister relationship. I am incredibly saddened to see Cady McClain
exit the role, she was one of the main reasons I got hooked on this show
over 18 months ago. I’ll take the time to write a few of my favourite
- Loved the look of happiness on
her face when she picked out the Queen of Hearts from the deck Paul was
holding for her.
- French Toast with Paul
- Her second marriage to Craig
- The way she helped out Paul by
posting his bail when everyone though he had killed Rose
- When helping Carly look for
Jack, Rosanna pretends to faint in St. Genevieve so Carly can run out.
- Loved her with Parker
- When James forced her to take
blame for Barbara’s crime against Emily; Rosanna puts the drug in
Emily’s water and adds thirty lemons to mask the smell.
- When the police officer pulled
her over and she said what she had in the back seat was a 140 pound
block of ice (it was actually James).
- Loved the scenes when she gave
up Cabot to the Canadian authorities.
These are the first that come to
mind, although I am sure there are many, many more.
The Oakdale Police Department is
officially a joke. I couldn’t help laughing when Craig set the room on
fire and Margo rushed to get a fire extinguisher to light out the blaze.
As Margo said, when Craig is cornered he lashes out. At this point he
has nothing to lose but his baby, and we all know how far Craig is
willing to go to “protect” his children in his own twisted way.
Through this storyline I have
come to truly despise Craig. Craig was never one of my favourites, but I
did enjoy the witty humor and devilish sarcasm he brought onto the show.
He’s a troublemaker, but deep down he does everything for a good cause
(usually his own). But now, Craig has become a monster; his comment
towards Jenn about how the baby was better off dead than having her for
a mother put the final nail in Craig’s coffin.
Now that Rosanna is
incapacitated Jack and Carly have taken the baby in. I was shocked when
Jack was hesitant to take in the baby, he basically forced Carly to take
in JJ after Julia died.
Finally Henry got a new family
member this week, his youngest sister Madeline “Maddie” Coleman. I
cracked up when she pulled out Henry’s tightie whities from underneath
the car seat. It’s obvious that Maddie is a spitfire, I was pleasantly
surprised when she slammed the door to the cottage in Mike’s face,
HOWEVER I am not glad that she’s been brought to help Katie and Henry
reunite. For me that ship has sailed, Katie and Henry were cute at the
beginning of the marriage (cozy pajama parties) but now I am over them.
I’m a bit annoyed by Meg’s
attempts to get Dusty. I did not like her using Lucinda as an excuse to
get Dusty over at the house. And I was furious when she blurted out that
Lucinda has breast cancer. This is Lucinda’s disease, and ONLY Lucinda
decides who she wants to or who she doesn’t want to tell about her
I felt sorry for Meg and the way
she was throwing herself at Dusty in the bikini scenes.
Loved seeing Ben Harris at the hospital. He needs to return and
be involved in a story line. I want to see him paired with Sierra!
It seems to me that Luke’s venture into booze is only a ploy to
get Keith into rescuing him and winning over Lily’s son and more fanbase
in the process.
I hope the baby isn’t named “Samson”. I prefer Craig’s
