My Opinion by
everybody! I’m still giddy from last weekend’s fan event, but that
won’t keep me from doling out my opinions to you. This week was okay,
hindered only by the absence of the male half of my favorite couple.
But seeing that Belle or Philip were also absent all week made
it better for me, considering I’m at the point where I can’t stand
Philip, anyway. Even better — another no-show this week was Kate
(unless I’m mistaken)! So anyway, let’s go.
Shawn/Mimi: These two weren’t really seen together all that much
this week, but I hope their relationship continues blossoming into a
lovely, meaningful one. On Mimi’s front, she got very lucky when
Billie vouched for her to get her a job at Glorianne’s salon and spa.
On Shawn’s front, I am very disapproving of his choice not to
go back to college. It was funny, though, when he told Bo what
he’d decided and Bo replied, “The hell you’re not” while still
smiling. Amazing what the guy can take without dropping his smile.
John/Marlena/Alex/Frankie: I was seething with total fury when
Alex got Marlena to sign the divorce papers this week and got them
faxed to Mickey’s office. Just as John was about to get the upper
hand and get Marlena declared incompetent first. Well, thank God for
that clock Marlena has. It really saved her memories of John from
being erased. Oh, and when Marlena remembered all those other happy
memories and decided to go out with John, the look on Alex’s face was
priceless! Throwing Frankie into the mix, if only for two
episodes, was also a good move. (Hey, I nearly forgot he was lawyer
now.) And Frankie pretty much got Alex to make a very dumb move. As
soon as Frankie told him, “You can’t destroy what they have,” and Alex
answered, “We’ll see about that” and ran out the door, he confirmed
what we already knew, but what John had been suspecting — he is out to
split up John and Marlena. Hope he doesn’t succeed.
Lucas/Sami/Austin/Nicole: Lucas looks like he’s definitely going
to start a little something up with Sophie, which is fine. At least
until he realizes it’s Sami he truly does want to be with. Maggie
certainly tried and failed to get him to see that. And now, with his
new position at Titan, he wants to destroy Austin just because he is
being a friend to Sami and has hired both of his exes. This
should be interesting. I at first thought that they’d pulled a third
bedroom in Sami’s apartment out of the blue, but I had the fortune of
finding out that there had been three bedrooms years ago, when other
people lived there, but the third one had been, so to say, phased out
and nearly forgotten about since only Sami and Will lived there.
Anyway, Nicole now has a place to stay in Sami and Austin’s apartment,
and it’ll probably be in that third room. I loved their little
“office” scenes, pulling petty, underhanded stunts against each other
and even fantasizing about screwing each other over in spas. Alison
Sweeney (Sami) and Arianne Zuker (Nicole) work well off each other,
and I hope they continue doing so.
Jack/Jennifer: Oh, that’s real nice, Jack. Now you want to try
and kill yourself? Ugh. I’m not going to comment about their
storyline at all because Jack has become so unbelievable, so
cowardly, that I’m almost tempted to fast-forward through all Jack
and Jennifer’s scenes. (No offense to Matthew Ashford, though, who
plays Jack’s scenes beautifully.) Jennifer, you’re still cool,
Max/Chelsea: I hate to say this, but when these two are alone,
they’re a real yawn as a couple. That salsa dancing class they took
was a real bore. I don’t even think there’s any chemistry between
them at all. So moving on.
Bo/Hope/Billie: Billie was with Bo only a short time this week,
which was good. I loved, loved, loved it when she practically
flaunted how happy she was with the absent-all-week Patrick and made
Bo squirm! (Okay, maybe “flaunted” is not the right word here.) Of
course, when Bo went on his next anti-Patrick tangent, I got mad
again. But moving right along, Bo and Hope are now clashing over his
giving Chelsea even more money. He’s given her a total of $500
and is going to give her even more after that. They’re also fighting
over whether or not Shawn should be in college. (I agree with Hope
that he does need to be in college. Whenever businesses need
to start laying off some of their employees, they always make the ones
who didn’t go to college the first to go. Shawn needs that
college education.) I really think that Bo should taking both of
these situations more seriously than he’s already taking them. Is
Shawn an adult? Yes. Does he have to go to college? Not
necessarily. Does he have to if it means not missing out on an
opportunity for a high-paying job? I’d say yes. Bo needs to figure
that part out and take better action. And stop trying to win your
daughter over by simply giving her money! She’s playing you!
just what’s on my mind!
