On the box for this week…Last week brought a close to what has
been the most drawn out and milked scenario since Caroline
Caruthers came to town to stir up trouble for the “3 M’s”. Yes
folks, Gus is back! In what was a very anticlimactic rescue by his
“unwavering” wife Harley, Gus was whisked away to safety and is
once again part of the Springfield community. Strangely enough I
as well as most viewers were really anticipating some serious
fireworks when Beth and Alan discovered that the “jig was up”, but
as usual the Spaulding’s get away with committing yet another
crime. Or do they? Dum dum duuuum. So with that being said I
would like to just highlight what else happened last week by
bringing back the ever popular Excited About, and Irked My Nerves.
Since with the closing of one storyline door always comes the
possibility of a lot more doors opening.
The possibility of Dinah having true happiness, after going
Psycho for a bit when Mallet left her high and dry, he finally
comes to the conclusion that his heart resides with Dinah and that
he needs to fight for his woman. Telling Dinah that he slept with
Harley was very risky, but both characters handled it beautifully,
their chemistry is really amazing.
IRKED MY NERVES:
Sadly what I don’t want to see is Dinah as CEO of Spaulding. I
know that would put the cream in her coffee but it just doesn’t
work for me. It’s Spaulding not Marler certainly not Cooper
Enterprises. All this seat changing is just paving the way for
what I pray is the inevitable…"Phillip Spaulding returns to take
his rightful place at the helm while he and Alan-Michael struggle
to find some middle ground and perhaps share a love interest or
2".Grant Alexander we need ya, that’s all I’m sayin…
What looks like Alan-Michael and Marina about to break up. Now
that the truth has been exposed about A-M’s true intentions. It
would be in Marina’s best interest to walk away.
IRKED MY NERVES:
More than likely this will really only create another layer on
the forced complexities of their impossible romance and draw them
closer together. The whole “I wish I could quit you” mentality is
floating around a lot in Springfield. Lizzy and Coop are hardly
acting broke up nor are Tammy and Jonathan, Josh and Reva, Cassie
and Jeffrey..etc. Come on GL we gotta break these chains and do
some partner switching. Now that Lizzie is a sexier older version
of her self, I vote for a hookup between her and Jon-Jon. They
have a history together and they could terrorize the town before
Tom Pelphrey moves on.
What’s in store for Harley when Gus finds out she slept with
Mallet and still has strong feelings for her ex-husband. Remember
A-M still has the recording of Harley spilling the beans to
Cassie, and now Dinah knows too. It’s only a matter of time before
this whole thing blows up in Harley’s face. Who will be there to
pick up the pieces? Mallet, don’t even think about it!
IRKED MY NERVES:
In a moment of weakness Dinah was about to go crawling into the
bed of Jeffrey O’Neal, until Cassie interrupts and gets an eyeful.
That grossed me out. It was so slimy and just wrong. Jeffrey was
horrible to Dinah they have a diseased past and not one that
should ever be rekindled. Let’s just let Cassie and Tammy roll
around with the slime balls of Springfield and up our standards a
bit mmkay Dinah?
