My Opinion by
This week, things continued to get better and better. I can't
believe how much movement we finally got. Unfortunately for me,
though, the one day that everything changed, I overslept (I sleep
REALLY late) and forgot to tape it. So I missed it. But that said,
Nicole/Chloe/Marlena/Craig/Nancy: So Kevin Spirtas once again
left his role as Craig. For how long, I don't know, but I'm really
going to miss him. I'm glad Marlena knows that Chloe's alive. And
I'm glad that she managed to talk Chloe into revealing herself to
Brady. Of course, that only lasted for a few seconds. Nicole managed
to manipulate her back into not wanting to reveal herself to Brady.
Chloe's such a coward. I know some of you don't think this, nor do
you want to believe this, but it's true. She's become such a
coward, she's not even fun to watch anymore. Oh, but who else liked
seeing Nicole seem to strike a nerve in Marlena? Marlena, who hasn't
kept a secret as big as the one she's keeping now since she slept
with John while she was married to Roman.
Patrick/Bonnie/Mimi/Belle: All three Lockharts were seen
together! That's good! Patrick's been seen with any family that's
not his. It's good to have finally seen him with people who
are in his family. I wonder just how many people he has
connections to, seeing as how he made yet another cryptic
phone call? Anyway, Mimi went ahead with her cowardly guilty plea.
But thanks to money from John, she's out on bail. Hard to say what I
think about her right now. She still wants to go to jail to keep Rex
from finding out about her abortion. Like that will prevent
him from finding out. As for Belle, she's not my favorite person
right now, but she didn't do a lot this week for me to really touch
on except continue advising Mimi to stop lying to Rex.
Jack/Jennifer: Jennifer is definitely jealous of Jack's
friendship with Billie. So much so that she got mad at him for
defending Billie to Hope. Ooookay. Billie isn't trying to steal
your husband, Jennifer, so why are you getting all worked up
about that? Moving on, Jack seemed pretty sick on Friday's episode.
I've heard so much speculation that it's his Hodgkin's disease
coming out of remission. If so, then we'll finally have a
good storyline to watch. Or at least a tolerable one.
Hope/Bo/Bille/Kate/Marlena: Except for Marlena, we didn't to
see any of these characters on all that much this week, and I
can't believe I was actually happy about that. How heated was that
melee of insults in the penthouse? One minute Kate's blaming Shawn
for her three sons being in danger, the next minute Hope's blaming
Billie for the same thing, then Billie's trying to defend herself,
and then Bo tries to defend Billie, and Hope gets angry at him for
doing so. While all those exchanges were very fun to watch, I just
want this little blame game to stop. When it comes right down to it,
the principle of the matter is that it's not Shawn, Bo, or
Billie to blame for the guys being in the war zone. It's Belle
who's to blame for this, and anyone with an ounce of common sense
can figure out how she's to blame for this. As for Marlena,
it's evident her friendship with Kate may finally end if Kate
doesn't stop insulting Sami in front of her.
Lexie/Tek/Celeste: So now we know one of Tek's secrets. He's
a homewrecker linked to many divorces. He's had affairs with
numerous married women and walks away from them after they've been
divorced. Unfortunately, after Celeste revealed this to Lexie, she
wouldn't believe it. Not that I blame her. She's been friends with
Tek for nearly two years now. It's hard to accept the truth.
Especially if it's about a really close friend. Granted, this
truth doesn't make me like Tek any less than I already do. I will
continue liking him until he does something really horrible to split
up Abe and Lexie's marriage. Until then, I'll give him the BOTD
(benefit of the doubt).
John/Roman: All I can say is, it's unbelievable that the two
of them don't believe Sami is innocent in the matter of Lucas's
breakup with her. At least, as far as Roman's concerned. A
father should believe his child, no matter how unbelievable
it sounds. Then again, Kate is his wife, and he has serious
blinders on when it comes to her. And what's with all the surprise
on their faces when they found out Tony's alive? Wasn't that to be
expected? He's a DiMera, for crying out loud! DiMeras
probably never truly die unless it's of old age!
Billie/Chelsea/Abby: That was touching to see Billie being
there to console Chelsea over the loss of her parents and her
home. I'm surprised Chelsea was able to put her attempt for Billie
aside long enough to let her console her. Imagine what'll
happen when they find out she's Georgia, Billie's daughter.
Tony/Bart/Sami/Philip/Shawn/Rex/Brady/Lucas: This storyline
had two real turning points this week. One: Sami saw Lucas and Lucas
thought he saw Sami, leading to Sami turning on Tony.
Two: Tony finally revealed himself to the guys and, inadvertently,
to all of Salem. I was UNBELIEVABLY happy when he was arrested by
the Marines. It's time that cartoon monster was finally stopped.
However, don't look for it to last long. He temporarily escapes next
week. Sami finally realized that she'd been wrong the whole time and
decided to stop this revenge nonsense. But let's see if anyone in
Salem will be willing to forgive her for all the crimes she
committed as Stan. (Hint: No! This summer, Tony will make totally
sure she goes down for those crimes!) On a side note, I know it's
probably not the right time for Philip to know about Shawn and
Belle's reconciliation, but I still wanted to punch Rex for
deliberately interrupting Shawn when he was going to tell Philip the
truth. That truth needs to be told to him now!
We've got a few big events waiting to happen next week to kick off
the summer, and I'm ready to watch them. One of them involves Brady
finally learning the truth about Chloe! Maybe we'll finally
see some of these other awful storylines come to a close, or
at least hit a climax. So I'll be watching and I hope you
And that's just what's on my mind!
