I will fully admit I have been losing interest and patience with this soap. I
have been bored and disappointed by the recent storylines. I was surfing through
YouTube and stumbled upon many great clips of what was once a great soap. The
beloved Quartermaines were front burner and respected. I saw the arrival of
Emily Quartermaine and remembered that at one time I actually liked the
character. I saw potential and looked forward to her winning Nikolas Cassadine.
I saw Elizabeth Webber's arrival and saw that at one time she was a bad girl who
made things interesting and had a nice love story with Lucky Spencer. She too
was a character I once liked. I was entranced by Stone and Robin's heartbreaking
storyline. I was lured into the Brenda/Jagger/Karen storyline and wondering who
to root for. I actually found Sonny's early appearances interesting. I liked
Lois/Ned, Lucy/Kevin, Sean/Tiffany. It reminded me of better times and how this
soap has fallen into a dark abyss. Now onto that abyss.
Sonny and Carly are once again dancing around each other. Their oldest son is
lying in a coma and yet those two decide to have comfort sex. Sick and
disgusting if you ask me. I will never understand the whole comfort sex thing.
Now she is pregnant and instead of hoping and praying it's her husband's baby, she
is lying and saying its Jason's. Now Jax will be hurt, because the guy has been
wanting a baby for quite sometime, and apparently the writers believe that only
Sonny should make babies. Jason is stupidly going along with the scheme all the
while ignoring his own son, Jake.
Sonny and Kate are getting married, and I am still trying to see the great love
between the two. I often wonder what would happen if Brenda returned. Would Kate
stand a chance? Kate irritates me with her high and mighty attitude. I find it
hard to root for her. Of course, she and Jax do have chemistry and do seem to be
equally matched. Maybe they should ride off into the sunset and have many
babies? It would be better than being stomped on by Sonny and Carly. because it's
obvious the writers intend to revisit that pair for the hundredth time. Boring!
I finally get a Jerry and Alexis romance only to have their love scene be done
off screen. However, those two do know how to kiss, and the actors have great
chemistry. Jerry is back to his evil ways which I know will eventually ruin his
relationship with Alexis. Why they can't somehow redeem him and bring him back
to the good side and away from the mob is beyond me.
Robin and Patrick are a great couple being wasted in a stupid storyline. Don't
get me wrong, I love that Robin is pregnant and hoping that she has a girl, but I
am irked that she is pushing Patrick away. Now seeing it from her point of view,
I would imagine she fears that she may die and leave Patrick a single father. Maybe
she fears him turning into Noah and throwing his life away. Either way, those two
will have to work things out and deal with it before us viewers begin tossing
tomatoes at the screen.
The whole Lulu and Johnny romance bores me. He is hot and has potential, but she
is irritating and annoying. Do I want him with Maxie? No! However it would be
nice for Serena Baldwin to return or even Brooklynn Ashton and give Lulu a run
for her money. Now we have Logan going off the deep end and soon facing the grim
reaper. What a waste if you ask me. Sure the actor was difficult to work with,
but he could have been dealt with a little better than ruining his character and
killing him off. Now poor Scott Baldwin will not only have lost his daughter
Karen Wexler, but also his son Logan. Once again the writers are crapping on a
Now I am excited about the upcoming Night Shift Season 2, because not only will a
better written Robert Scorpio return, but also the hunky Jagger Cates. Jagger
returns with his autistic son Stone and catches up with his old friend Robin. I
am dying to see how Patrick reacts as well as Robert. It is rumored that if
Jagger does indeed stay in Port Charles, then Brenda may very well return as well
and hook up with Jagger. Just as long as they keep him as far away from Carly
and Sam as possible. Looking forward to Robert and Robin reconnecting. Till next
