Opinion By Anna Banks 

Guiding Light Opinion for Week of July 7th

This week of Guiding Light gave us another viable murder suspect.

Iím beginning to think that the worst thing Harley did was quit the police force. Sheís not doing anything and she is still thinking better than the whole Springfield Police Department, which is why Iím wondering why GL wrote her out of the police force in the first place. Iím happy that she has concluded that Mitch Hendon is probably the killer, because Ben being the killer just doesnít do it for me. Itís just not something Ben Reade would do.

But did Ben self-inflict the stab wound on his abdominal? It is unlikely, but I wouldnít be surprised if GL decided to pull a twist and reveal that Ben would stab and drown himself to take suspicion off of him.

The marriage between Michelle and Danny was corny. I thought the whole thing looked incredibly trashy. Tying the knot surrounded by hot dogs and chips and fourth of July balloons just made the whole thing look tacky. It wasnít helped by the fact that it was obvious that Michelle was pregnant. GLís half-hearted attempts at covering up her pregnancy is not working. I just wish that the GL writers would end Manny. Itís just not working anymore.

On the plus side, Daniel Bedingfield singing his top hit ďIf Youíre Not the OneĒ was great. I didnít know that he had such a funny accent, and I loved hearing the excellent song.

I think it was kind of odd that Marina was suddenly feeling sorry for Ben. I thought she hated him and was through with him, and suddenly she is backing Ben up and snapping at Shayne for insulting him. I think Marina and Shayne are the safe couple, but Marina and Ben have chemistry. I would love to see Marina and Shayne back together, but it was just strange the way Marina was unexpectedly feeling sorry for Ben.

The scenes in which Phillip was remembering his love for Olivia made me smile. I loved the fact that Phillip hadnít forgotten the passion he had with her, because lately passion is the last thing that happens when the two characters are together. I am hoping that after Olivia has the baby, she and Phillip can ignite the chemistry that is fighting to get out.

On a related note, Olivia is suddenly going blonde. The flashbacks showed me her darker hair color, and I wondered why her hair color is suddenly changing. Blondes donít necessarily have more fun, and the lighter hair is not doing it for her.

Why Phillip is giving Alexandra the time of day is puzzling to me. Maybe he has selective memory, because everything that Alexandra has done for him has backfired miserably. If he reinstates his great-aunt into Spaulding, then something is wrong with him.

I havenít addressed this, but itís pretty odd that the prom in Springfield takes place in July, and so does graduation. Most schools have already been in summer vacation for a month at least. Also, Shayne is still pitching for his baseball team in mid-July, and heís going to be in the All-Star game for high school baseball. When does summer vacation take place in Springfield?

Best scene of the week: Harley and Blake figuring out bruises on victimsí necks.

Thatís all for this week.
