My Opinion by
homework made me so late itís not even funny. This column is for the
week of October 10 through 14, a week that I really donít know what to
think much of.
Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi: So Belle and Philip have taken Claire
home from the hospital, and Belleís turned into a weeping ball of
emotion. Apparently, she has postpartum depression, which couldíve
been set off by seeing Shawn and Mimiís deepening connection. Oh,
boy. I hope she doesnít go down the path of GLís Reva Lewis and
nearly kill herself. And I hope she survives that fall of the fire
John/Marlena/Alex: Thanks to more of Alexís machinations, Marlena
kicked John out of the penthouse. Heís now taken up with Kate (purely
platonically, of course) and has used his time to spy on Alex with
Marlena. I really didnít like seeing what John had the misfortune of
seeing. But for the first time in years, Iíve felt the need to root
for John to win Marlena back. This became even more clear when he
tried getting her back at Chez Rouge, where Alex tried unsuccessfully
to drug her again. (Thank goodness.) Despite the progress this
storylineís making, I still donít really know what to think of it
Lucas/Sami/Austin/Nicole: I had to laugh at Sami and Nicole
fighting to go out with Austin. It was even funnier when they were
looking for him in Samiís apartment in perfect time with each other,
not even knowing that Austin had already left for Aliceís. Nicole
thinks Sami wants Austin back, but Sami claims she doesnít. I think
sheís telling the truth, but time will tell. Anyway, it looks like
very soon after Austinís return to the show, he and Lucas are already
feuding over Sami. The reason is very simple ó Lucas quite plainly
wants Sami back, despite what heís saying, and he hates that Austinís
getting close to her. Nothing more, nothing less. Lucas, just tell
Sami you want her back and be done with it! Oh, and another thing.
Donít looked so peeved that Victor got you a job a Titan that Austin
turned down. At least you have one at all.
Victor/Kate: I liked their scenes together at Aliceís. I think
seeing Victor is a good treat, no matter what. I canít believe how
easily Kate convinced Victor to give Lucas a job. And this next
question is pretty confusing to me. Why did Victor go off and ask
Austin first when Kate clearly asked him to offer Lucas the job? Oh,
well. Lucas has the job now, anyway, so no matter.
I hope theyíre on their way to a full reconciliation soon. Abe
admitted that he took his anger over his blindess out on Lexie and
chased her away, which is the absolute truth, so I give him some
credit for admitting it. Thatís the only thing I have to say about
Jack/Jennifer/Frankie: While Iím glad that Jennifer finally knows
the truth about Jackís illness, watching her finally accept the
truth was hard. Nothing more to be said. And, unsurprisingly,
Frankieís feelings for Jennifer were rekindled, but that is pretty
much an old story right now.
Max/Chelsea/Abby: Loved the nod to Abbyís history with her own
disease. I was also surprised at Maxís history. Iíd originally
thought that he and Frankie were biological brothers (since I never
watched the show back when they were first introduced). Imagine my
surprise that they werenít. Chelsea definitely seems to have
put her feelings for Patrick behind her and considering trying her
hand at a relationship with Max, which I think is a good idea. Maybe
thereís hope for her yet.
just whatís on my mind!
