My Opinion by
three weeks’ worth of material to write about. This is the second of
the three weeks.
Shawn/Belle/Philip/Mimi/Bonnie: So now Mimi knows the truth about
Bonnie’s “heart attack” and is once again ready to tell Shawn the
truth about Claire. In no time at all, Bonnie was able to guilt Mimi
into keeping quiet. But it’s obviously not going to last long. In
fact, I actually thought that Mimi had truly come out and said it this
week, explaining everything thoroughly. It was Shawn and Belle’s
insensitive reactions to the whole thing that tipped me off that she
was having a nightmare about telling the truth. It almost became a
nightmare come true as she overheard Belle tell Shawn she still loves
him. But Mimi must be relieved that Shawn doesn’t feel the same way
anymore. Let’s see if he still doesn’t when the truth about Claire
comes about, though.
John/Marlena/Alex: Like I said in the previous column, using the
truth serum on Lois was a clever move, as John was able to get
everything out of Lois. Alex is trying to kill Marlena! But before
John could get Marlena so that Lois could tell her everything she’d
told him, they came back to find her hanging in her padded cell, all
courtesy of Alex (who’d unfortunately heard the whole thing from a
secret observation room). Marlena then proceeded to return to stupid
mode, turning back into Alex’s sole (now that Lois is dead)
cheerleader. At least I got to see one of her trademark freakouts
when they found her hanging. John, you should’ve taped Lois’s
confession and played it for Marlena, and you would’ve had a fighting
chance. Now, he’s been fingered for killing Lois when she was
really trying to point at him for a different thing. (Didn’t
catch it. What was it?)
Austin/Sami/Lucas/Carrie: I’m so disgusted with Lucas that I
fast-forwarded through all of their scenes this week.
Abe/Lexie/Tek: Because I forgot to include them in my previous
column, I will incorporate the previous week into this week’s column,
as well. It seems now that Abe finally has his eyesight back after
getting a corneal transplant. But it was really saddening to find out
that he got the corneas from their ex-son Isaac (known to all as the
late Zack). But despite the happy occasion of him getting his sight
back, he still has his other problem — his impotency. And it’s
a problem Tek is once again all too ready to take advantage of in
winning Lexie back. Lexie is, so far, doing a decent job of trying to
fight off his advances (only failing in that she let Tek give her a
kiss a two), but I wonder how much longer she can hold out. In other
news, it was nice seeing both of them (Abe and Lexie) try to
steer Marlena away from Alex, even if neither was successful. As for
Tek, Lexie is married, so he should just leave her alone. Except . .
. he does have that reputation of stealing married men’s wives
and then dumping them soon after.
Bo/Hope/Chelsea/Patrick/Billie: And finally, we have our big
storyline. The unthinkable has happened. Bo’s incessant defense of
Chelsea (this time getting her bailed out of jail before she was even
put in) got him on the ropes with Hope but good. She kicked him out
of the house! And frankly, I don’t blame her, and was a much bigger
bitch than I would’ve been. I would’ve made him sleep on the
couch. Meanwhile, Billie is still unwilling to take Patrick back
because he did the right thing where she did the wrong thing.
And now, she’s stuck listening to Chelsea go on and on about keeping
Bo and Hope from getting back together because they’d put up a united
front against her. While that’s almost certainly true, it’s no reason
to scheme to keep them apart — and plot for her parents’ reunion.
Billie even said as much, so good for her! Chelsea’s becoming like
more like her Grandma Kate now — and I don’t like it one bit!
Miscellaneous: How nice was it to hear Victor tell Kate, who was,
without a doubt, relishing in Bo and Hope’s marital problems, that
he’d make her pay if she did anything to try and come between them? I
liked hearing every word come out of his mouth!
just what’s on my mind!
