I hate to say it, too afraid I might jinx it, but it seems
to me the show is getting a little better the last week or so. It might
just be wishful thinking, but I am actually enjoying it now. Oh, don't get
me wrong, there are still plenty of problems with the whole thing, but it
definitely seems to be picking up at long last. I know, the last time it
did this was short-lived, and nothing that seemed to be getting resolved
really did (well, except for TC's dumb secret), but there is a chance this
time will be better, right? Isn't there?
I need to talk about Whitney here. I know I've already
discussed how unrealistic her story is at this point, but it's only gotten
worse since then. Oh, it holds my interest and all, but I have to say I am
so upset with this character I could scream. She is so quick to remind
others when they are acting badly, letting them know they need to do the
right thing, yet when it's her turn to do that, she fails miserably. She
is still lying to both Fox and Chad about who the father of her baby is,
leaving Fox brokenhearted and confused, and Chad happily going along with
his life, not realizing what's right around the corner to trip him up.
Now, I do understand that she doesn't want the world to know she got
pregnant with and gave birth to her half-brother's child, but does anyone
really believe Fox or Chad would be anxious to blurt it out either? No, it
would be just as hard on them to tell the world what fools they've been,
and I really don't think they'd do that. The one area there might be a
problem is if Fox tells Ivy and she gets her self-righteous mouth going,
but as long as he tells no one, there shouldn't be a problem. Now, on top
of all that, Whitney finally saw her baby, finally held him, and even
nursed him to stop his crying, yet she practically tossed him back to Chad
when he got home and never wants to see him again. Are they serious with
this? As a mother I can tell you that would never happen. There is no way
a mother could meet her child and then turn her back on him so easily,
especially after nursing him. I tell you, I just don't understand how the
writer's minds work.
Beth and Alistair finally found out he is her father, just
in time to stop them from doing the dirty deed together. Whew!! But kudos
to Edna for figuring out how to benefit from the whole mess in a big way.
God only knows how much the check Alistair gave her to keep her mouth shut
was worth, but it was enough to supply her with a whole new wardrobe from
the ritzyist store in Harmony, plus get her some new hips and a bladder
renewal, whatever that is. Beth is just happy to finally know who her
Daddy is, but Alistair is definitely not pleased that she keeps calling
him that all the time. It all seemed to work out well for them, tho, until
Edna found out that Eve had seen Alistair sneaking them out of the mansion
the night before. She knows Sheridan and Luis will put two and two
together and connect Alistair to Beth and the kidnapping, explaining how
she could have pulled it off, and that's not a happy thought. But, Edna's
shopping spree was a hoot, especially watching the snooty salespeople
practically kissing her backside once they saw the money she was wanting
to spend. I can't say much for the choices she made, but she sure had a
ball, and I had a ball watching her.
Theresa continues to amaze. This woman is chock-a-block
full of self-destruct buttons, and every time she turns around she pushes
another one. She has everything she was wanting to have when she came up
with her scheme to get her son back, plus she has a new daughter, but she
still isn't satisfied because Ethan chose Gwen. Now, I'm not one who
thinks he made a good choice, but Theresa made an even worse one by not
simply taking her kids and getting on with her life. I will never
understand how her brain works. All I know is it's nothing like mine or
anyone else I ever knew. How many times does Ethan have to show her he's
not a man at all, only Gwen and Rebecca's stooge, before she's had enough
of it? He isn't worth the trouble in the least, in my opinion. He
continues to play the two women against each other, leading both on
continually. He is never happy, no matter which woman he is with. They
both need to kick him to the curb and get on with their own lives, find
men who really love them and will stick with them, not change their mind
every time they change their underwear.
OK, now we have two new characters on the show. Never mind
that there are plenty of stories that need to be dealt with concerning the
characters already there, they felt the need to pile two more on. I'm not
real impressed with either of them at the moment, feeling they are both a
pathetic waste of time, but hopefully they will become more impressive
over time. We all know they will fall in love and be kept apart by their
differences, so I don't see the need to bring them on. One more couple who
will never really be happy together......just what we need, right?
Well, I guess not all was peaches and cream this past
week, but it still beats what we've been watching for years. I just hope
the promise of continued movement and - hopefully - resolutions of some of
the long-running stories lives up to the hype. If so, this might really be
a summer to remember for Passions fans.
