2005 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

This was quite a week, I must say. We had some movement in some storylines, and the same slow pace in others. I have so much to say about this week, so here I go.

Jennifer/Patrick/Billie/Bo/Hope: These five had one of the storylines that gripped me. For starters, Patrick and Billie. The two of them called each other on their feelings for their respective crushes. At least Billie didn't deny her lingering feelings for Bo. But Patrick still won't admit he's falling for Jennifer (while at the same time, developing somewhat of a crush on Billie). Speaking of Patrick, I'm still having trouble figuring this guy out. What is with that call he made last week? Who the heck was he calling this week? Is he really in on this scheme against Billie? I don't know. I'll have to find out by watching. I was really touched by the scenes of Billie trying to revive Chelsea. Julie did a swell job of portraying Billie's sadness in those scenes. I might get a lot of you mad, but I backed Billie right up in blaming the Bensons' deaths on Hope. She let her own jealousy and paranoia get in the way of her own morality and for what? Just to hold onto her husband. (I'd usually commend it, but since there were deaths involved, I can't.) Bo did nothing to make me mad this week, which was very surprising. And I'll leave it at that. Finally, Jennifer's scenes with Abby in the hospital were wonderful, as well. (I loved the flashback to the day she was born. She was such a beautiful baby.)

Chloe/Brady/Nicole/Sami: Justin thinks Chloe's not a coward. Just overly insecure. Sorry, Justin, but I disagree. If she'd told Brady that she was alive months ago, I might've believed that. But every single time she's had the chance, she's taken the easy way out. Those are cowardly actions in my book. I'm at least glad that Chloe's finally realized that Brady will love her for who she is, not what she looks like. But if she truly knows this, she has to follow up on that and trust in their love. She is taking Brady's love for granted, and she may pay big time later. Nicole teaming up with Sami/Stan to botch Chloe's operation is dumb. Not to mention Sami/Stan's intentions are sick. Brady didn't do one thing to Sami. I can't believe she'd want to hurt him. But . . . was that a tiny bit of concern on her face when she heard Brady was going with Shawn and Rex to rescue Philip? Probably not. Just wait till she finds out <i>Lucas</i> is with them, too.

Bonnie/Mimi/Tek: Now, how did Tek know Mimi would turn up at Jan's country house? I liked the fact that he anticipated their actions so easily. It was a great move on his part. It must've been relieving for Mimi to confess everything that happened. Good for you, Mimi. Now tell Rex. I am very surprised that Mimi admitted herself that she's a coward. At least now, there's no denying it. Bonnie tried everything to protect Mimi and it was almost a no-go. But Mimi ended up safe for now. We'll just have to see if Jan dies or not. If so, she's going to prison for her murder.

Shawn/Belle/Rex/Brady/Lucas: I can't believe Shawn let Belle say all those things to him, but I understand why. He didn't want to give away his agenda. And she's right on some level -- Shawn is doing something for himself, all right. All he wants is to rescue Philip so Belle can tell him their marriage is over when he gets home. I still think this plan is a stupid one if he only wants to go on the mission for that reason. Rex, Brady, and Lucas I won't get into. None of them did anything to make me mad.

John/Kate: I can't believe Kate actually let them talk her into keeping their mission a secret. At least, for the time being. I can't believe how quickly John figured out what she was going to tell him, considering how stupid he's been over the last few months. Boy, John's a very deadly man when you cross him. Something I haven't gotten the chance to see for myself in so long.

The DiMera Castle: It's finally over. I was glued to my seat. (Well, to my bed. I watch it in bed as soon as I wake up at, like, one o'clock in the afternoon and don't really get up until it's over.) Watching Jack square off with Tony and Bart was amazing. Even more amazing when he shot him. It was great to see Victor and Caroline on again. Finally. I was thrilled to see Bart show the softer side of him I haven't seen in probably a year when he helped Victor and Caroline escape the castle after helping Caroline out from under that fallen beam. I pretty much laughed when he spilled the beans about Roman, Marlena, Jack, and Cassie being there in the castle, too. (Why on Earth did he and Tony lie to the captives about the others being there, anyway? They should've told the truth when they weren't believed.) So, Tony's gone. At least for now. Good. I've been waiting for him to get his just deserts for a long time. And now, he has. To conclude this, I hope Roman, Marlena, Jack, and Cassie find out about Victor and Caroline -- before they go home without them.

I'm ready, willing, and able to see the long-awaited reunions next week. I can't wait to see everyone back with the ones they need to be with. It'll be a good week. Hope you'll all be watching, because I know I'll be watching!

And that's just what's on my mind!
