2006 Our Opinion!

My Opinion by Jamison

This week showed some fine acting by almost every player involved.  But one particular storyline really stood out more than the others in terms of its power and its poignancy.  Care to guess which one it is?

Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi/Victor/Kate: Right now, Claire’s at death’s door, which would be an ideal time for the truth about her paternity to come out, and then Shawn could get to hold and say goodbye to his baby daughter.  Right?  Wrong.  Although Victor told Kate this, Kate still wouldn’t tell the truth.  Well, she almost told Philip until Belle went on that little tangent about hope.  And then, Victor was only stopped from telling Shawn by the news that he and Mimi were getting married.  He must’ve seen how complicated things would get.  Shoot.  So close.  Oh, well.  Philip and Belle are still the couple they shouldn’t be and Shawn and Mimi are now engaged, which I should be happy about, but I’m surprisingly not.  Guess I’m just upset that Shawn and Mimi had barely declared themselves as a couple before getting engaged.

John/Marlena/Alex: Well, as it turns out, Lois really is the dangerous woman here, as she was about to stab Marlena to death with scissors while she was sleeping.  She was saved only by the sound of a gunshot from John’s gun as he shot Alex, whom he thought was trying to hurt Marlena.  I thought at first that Alex was dead from falling off the building, but just like Marlena during the Salem Stalker storyline, the awning over the front entrance of her apartment building broke his fall.  But he’s in critical condition right now.  Now, Lois is about to go on the rampage and try to kill both Alex and Marlena while she can.  At least now, I know what kind of back-story Lois has — Alex and Marlena really were a couple back during their medical school days, and Lois was the jealous other woman in love with Alex.  Feeling shunned by him, she developed this “if I can’t have him, no one can” complex and thus tried to off both of them.  Now, in the present, she’s still sworn on getting her revenge on them.  I think this storyline’s taken a somewhat interesting, if not ridiculous, turn.

Nicole/Austin/Sami/Lucas/Carrie: Just like last week, Sami’s planning to use the knowledge of Carrie being the CEO of HighStyle and Austin’s now officially taken it over to drive a wedge between them.  Lucas, meanwhile, is waiting in the wings to catch Carrie when she falls after she hears this news.  I hate to say this, but I am almost done trying to maintain my interest in this storyline.  This definite Sami/Austin/Carrie/Lucas redux is, if I may be quite frank, for the birds.  Except for the drunken Nicole and Eugenia thrown into the mix, of course.

Frankie/Jennifer: Only saw them once this week, but it looks like they’re doing what Jack wants — growing closer.  Which is fine, except for the fact that Jennifer’s probably being more resistant of it than Jack expected her to be.  But those scenes in the shower were a little funny, if not quirky.  But the fun kind of ended when Jennifer pretty much wigged out after coming so close to kissing Frankie.  Other than the shower scene, nothing else grabbed my interest this week.

Bo/Hope/Max/Chelsea: A very tragic accident just took place here.  Chelsea, after taking her eyes off the wheel for a few seconds while driving Bo’s SUV, has run down poor Zack, who wandered into the street on his own while looking for a “kitty.”  Of course, when she stopped, I thought she saw what she’d done.  She didn’t, unfortunately.  She just focused on the damage she’d done to the car and assumed she just hit a pothole.  I was so sad when I saw Hope find Zack in the street.  My heart practically went out to her.  Those scenes were so poignant and well-played by Kristian Alfonso (Hope) that I thought I’d cry.  She definitely deserves an Emmy this year.  I’d also like to recognize Renée Jones for showing us Lexie’s emotions for having to treat her former son.  The scenes in the operating room were especially hard to watch, knowing how much her own heart had to be breaking.  Chelsea, meanwhile, had better learn a little bit of responsibility from this.  No, wait — a LOT of it, considering what’s just happened.

Alice/Caroline/Doug/Julie: Frankly, as happy as I was to see them all make appearances this week, I’m upset that all they’re usually around for is to lend support these days.  While I really love all four of them, they need something to do with them, and I’d really like it if they did.

And that’s just what’s on my mind!
