2005 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

This was an amazing week, I have to admit! I have so much to say about it, it's not even funny. I don't even know where to start!

Chloe/Nancy/Nicole: I thought I'd get the boring storylines out of the way first. I really don't have all that much to say, except that the look on Nicole's face when the nurse took the files away before she could switch them was priceless. I'm hoping she doesn't get away with what she's planning, but it's obvious she probably will.

Shawn/Rex/Brady/Lucas/Sami/Philip: Another one I thought I'd get out of the way. All I can say is, this entire storyline is moronic and stupid. I mean, are we actually supposed to believe Shawn, Rex, Brady, and Lucas all developed into heroes overnight? No. They only developed into heroes at James E. Reilly's convenience instead of taking more time to build the story up. As for Sami and Philip, it was kind of funny to see Sami/Stan get caught and imprisoned with Philip. I can't believe those mercenaries didn't even recognize her/him. Didn't they know Sami/Stan was working for Tony just like they were?

Belle/Mimi: I don't completely agree with Belle's rant at John. There are lots of available women, but Kate? I don't really think so. Belle just doesn't want any woman other than Marlena with John, and as far as she knows, she's dead. The only reason I partly agree with her, though, is because of the fact that Marlena is actually alive. She was right about one thing, though. Kate would trade Shawn's life for Philip's in a heartbeat. She doesn't give a rat's behind about Shawn anymore. As for Mimi, how corny was that message she got from Rex? I can't believe Rex would prepare something like that for her! Sweet thought, really, but come on! And Mimi's finally thought about what might happen if Kate found out about her abortion. Yeah, I'd probably be scared, too, knowing everything Kate's capable of.

Bo/Billie: This is the last storyline I wanted to get out of the way before getting to the good ones. I don't like the way the character of Billie Reed is being written. They've made her so desperate to find her daughter and become a mother that they've made her desperation completely cloud her judgment. Plus, she uses her daughter, who may not even exist (we all know she does, though), to keep Bo from doing the right thing. Don't get me wrong. I thought I saw the old Bo finally returning. You know, the Bo who's more devoted to his wife and sons and has better judgment. But he let Billie pretty much goad him into searching for Georgia with her again. The writers haven't done much justice for the character of Bo Brady, either. And now look at them. They are trapped in a pit now. This is not making for a good story. The only silver lining for this is that we at least have good actors playing out the storyline. If we had bad ones, I'd be fast-forwarding through these scenes indefinitely.

Abe/Lexie: I included them because I forgot to last week. All I can say is that's it evident their marriage is strained. Probably because Abe's sexual performance has been seriously affected.

John/Marlena/Roman/Kate: Finally, on to the storylines I loved this week. I have no idea why Roman thought that keeping his affair with Marlena a secret wouldn't hurt anybody. Hello, Roman! This is Salem! All secrets come out eventually! Although since Reilly's the writer, it could take forever. I was also pretty frustrated with the frequent near-misses we saw. I mean, come on! They thought we'd be able to wait for their reunions another day? No way! But the moment I saw John turn around and see Marlena, I knew it was finally happening. The look on Kate's face when she saw Marlena was priceless, knowing she'd lost John. But her reunion with Roman was beautiful. Shame they treated it like it wasn't as important as John and Marlena's reunion. Oh, and I liked seeing the look on Kate's face when she found out Cassie is alive, too. And speaking of Cassie, I would've loved to see her reunite with Grandpa Shawn. After all, he never got to talk to her after finding out she was his granddaughter before she was "murdered." I would've loved to see that.

Mickey/Maggie: It was great seeing them both again. Mickey's reunion with Jack didn't do that much for me, but Maggie's reunion with Jack was very well played out. My only gripe about them, even though it was never addressed, is that I'm frustrated with and angry at Mickey because I don't believe for one minute that it'd take, at this point, almost six months to choose which woman he wants to be with. The character of Mickey Horton has become as dumb as a stump, and I won't stand for it any longer.

Jack/Jennifer/Abby/Patrick/Hope: Jack and Jennifer's reunion was the most beautiful one of all. I loved the way Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) played it out. Kudos to Ashley Benson (Abby), as well. Everything in those scenes was so well done. Jack bringing in Abby's birthday cake was a nice touch, too. Now, the icing on the cake (not the birthday cake, of course) was Mickey bringing in Jack, Jr., to complete the little tableau. Seeing the entire Deveraux family there together got me all emotional and wanting to cry. But I couldn't, for some reason. And that reason was what he did later. I didn't like seeing him attack Patrick at all. Granted, we all know he has a better reason for not trusting him. It's all thanks to Tony and Bart that he doesn't trust him. But I hope he doesn't act as malicious toward him as Bo has. That's the last thing I want to see. I'm so glad Hope and Jennifer defended Patrick to Jack, though, because even if Patrick really is still working for the DiMeras, I know he's a good person. Bo and Jack are just so desperate not to believe that. As for Hope, I totally back up her anger of Bo leaving with Billie again. He had no right to leave without telling her after he promised her he wouldn't. So I'm looking forward to what's going to happen once she finds him with Billie.

Alison Sweeney returns as Sami on Tuesday, May 3! I'm looking forward to seeing her back again. And I'm really eager to see how the John/Marlena/Roman/Kate quadrangle plays out now that they're back.

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