Shirley's Opinion #61

By Shirley

4/26 - 4/30/04

What a week!  I feel like I'm on a roller coaster that was just trudging along and all of a sudden the guy at the controls just ramped it up to high speed!  Not that I'm complaining, mind you.  I have always been a thrill seeker and all the plodding along for these past five years has been torture, so finally starting to move at a good pace is the best thing that's happened since this show started.  I just want to throw my arms up and go "Whooooo"!!! But I have to admit there is a new wrinkle I am wondering about.  Oh, I know, Simone and Jessica became "Mark" salespersons, a form of advertising of it's own, but have you noticed how they keep focusing on different products during the show?  Kay's hair care products, Luis' portable water purifier....what's up with that?  Personally, I find it a little too opportunistic.  I mean, we already have commercials every few minutes of the show now.  Why do they have to add more during the show itself?  Sorry, but I'm not a fan.  Now, if they were to start advertising that way, showing products being used by the characters and even discussed by them in their scenes while dropping the other commercials, that I could live with.  Otherwise, keep the commercials where they belong.

Luis is beginning to decode the disks he stole from Alistair.  Finally he is going to have all the proof he needs to bring down the Crane empire.  But don't count your chickens just yet, folks.  We all know Alistair has ways to overcome every obstacle so anything could happen.  Keep your eyes on the dance this coming week.  If things go as rumored, it will be an exciting time for all us fans.

Hey!  Guess what?  After all this time we finally get to find out what's in TC's shed!!  Can you believe it?  I know what it is, and believe it or not, I guessed it a couple of years ago when everyone was trying to figure it out.  I'm not going to spill the beans here in case anyone reading would rather be surprised, but if you stop and think about it logically, it's the only thing that he could have in there.  Remember, TC is a master grudge holder.  He still hates Julian for the crash that knocked him out of the running for a career in tennis and manages to beat the tar out of him almost every time he sees him.  And he only goes in the shed when he's really upset, usually at something he blames on Julian, and no one else is allowed in there, so it has to be something very personal to him.  And here's a clue:  the key to the shed probably isn't the only one on that key ring.  Anyway, I'm glad it will finally be out in the open after all these years.  But it's only going to make TC look more psycho than he already looks to us.  The man should really be locked up, in my opinion.  At least in a maximum security psycho ward until he can work through his rage and come out acting like a normal human being, not punching everyone that makes him angry.

Theresa actually managed to end up pregnant from Gwen's fertilized eggs.  I'm not sure how long it will last, especially after Gwen's attack yesterday.  I am fairly certain it doesn't last long, though.  And isn't it strange that Gwen has had two chances to become a mother and her inability to control herself may have lost both of them for her?  I swear, if there is one woman on that show who doesn't deserve to be a mother, it's Gwen.  Say what you will about Theresa, she has always been a good mother.  I am so hoping she will be able to get Little Ethan back soon.  It's terrible to see a mother and child separated like this.  And you have to wonder just what Gwen and Rebecca have been telling him about her.  I wouldn't put it past them to be telling him she's a terrible person and she doesn't care about him.  Maybe they might even tell him she left and gave him to Gwen.  Now that would be as low as it gets, exactly the kind of thing they would do.

Poor Kay.  She goes out everyday and works in that smelly, yucky fish factory, trying to keep her little family together and gets nothing but insults from Miguel in return.  And while she's out supporting his lame behind, he's running around after Charity, totally ignoring his studies and his daughter.  Well, nothing new about that, but I had thought he was finally growing up and taking his responsibilities seriously.  That's what I get for thinking, I guess.  Now he's going to take off with his little blonde bimbo and start a clothing design business with her.  Great way to say "thanks, Kay".  I know, Kay is no angel, but come on.  She deserves better than that after all she's been through and all she's been willing to give up for the man she loves.  I know it's not a popular position to take, but I actually like Kay.  I admire her spunk.  Sure, she doesn't go about the things she does the right way, but at least she has the desire to do something to make what she wants happen.  Charity just sits and simpers.  How boring!  But I guess simpering wins out.  Miguel is such a wimpy little nerd, he deserves to be bored to tears by fifty-some years with Charity.

Eve and Julian.  What more do I need to say?  I don't know why they are still apart.  Oh, I know the story and everything, but I just don't understand why the story hasn't changed.  They belong together.  He is so much better for her than TC, and he is so much better with Eve than he is without her.  She brings out the hero in him, and it's a wonderful thing to see.  It looks like they are about to give way to their passions, and I for one am thrilled!!  I hope they decide to chuck it all and just stay together, no matter what anyone else says or thinks.  And as an added bonus, if they get together and everyone (especially TC)  finds out, all those secrets Eve has been keeping will come out, as well as all the plots Rebecca forced on Julian via blackmail.  We might actually have happiness break out all over Harmony for once!  Oh, I know it wouldn't last long.  Tabby will find a way to cause more problems for everyone, but just to see people happy for even a month or two would be so wonderful, wouldn't it?  I mean, five years of pain and sorrow just drags a body down.  I'm tired of being depressed after every show is through, aren't you?

Well, Pilar seems to be getting worse, but at least Ethan knows about it now, so maybe that will move along, too.  I don't know if she's going to live or die.  I hope she lives.  I would hate to lose her since she is the mainstay for both Theresa and Luis, as well as Sheridan.  I don't know what they'd do without her.  But now, in an aside dedicated to pure lunacy, what on earth was Ethan doing the other day?  I almost died laughing when he found Pilar, leaned over, put his ear to her ear and declared her dead because she wasn't breathing.  HUH????  Since when did she start breathing through her ear?  Oh, that has to be my entry for stupidest scene of the year.  I still laugh when I see it in my mind.  Thank goodness he's a lawyer, not a doctor.  LOL!!

Ok, that's my thoughts on this week.  I think it was very exciting, as I said, and it has to be one of my favorites.  Good scenes and bad, it still added up to major movement in at least some of the stories, and the potential for major movement in several others, so I would say it was the Week of All Weeks, at least for now.  But next week is right around the corner, and who knows what secrets it may reveal.........
