I have to say right up front that after the show yesterday
I was left wondering what is going to happen on Monday. Now, that's
a great feeling to have with this show. More often than not the
Friday show ends and I could care less what happens next. This isn't
a first, but it is one of very few times I've felt this way. And
actually, it's not like anything really exciting happened, that's the
Oh, I could care less what Sheridan decides to do with
Chris, or whether Fancy and Noah get it on in the tub or not. Those
stories just bore me at this point. Sheridan is going to get mixed
up with Chris and have to decide who she really, really wants once Luis
gets back, and Fancy and Noah will continue their class warfare, ad
nauseum. Who really cares?
One thing, tho. Am I the only one, or does anyone
else think that the "vision" of Luis was actually another case
of someone (probably Chris) wearing a Luis mask and pretending to be him?
Those who have been around a few years remember when that happened before,
and Sheridan was sure Luis had turned on her and had another honey on the
side, thanks to Alistair, and I just think that's what's going on here
I mean, if this was Luis' ghost, she wouldn't be able to
touch him, would she? I don't think so. And it seemed a bit
strange to me that a thick fog came up all of a sudden, then seemed to
disappear just as suddenly, or was confined to the one area of the beach
where Luis appeared and nowhere else. No, I think it was a
masquerade, and the new hairstyle kind of works toward that scenario, too.
Add the fact that it's pretty convenient that he shows up to tell Sheridan
to forget about him and move on with Chris and you've got a good case for
some shenanigans going on. I'll try to keep an open mind on this,
but it just doesn't add up. We know Galen's coming back soon, so
Luis can't really be dead.
Ok, now on to the parts that I found interesting enough to
make me want Monday to get her faster. Kay and Ivy, for one.
Ivy, trying to appease Sam after their engagement, seemed to want to bury
the hatchet with Kay, even defending her in the whole Singapore computer
virus thing. Kay was surprised, and happy, too, because she really
loves Fox and doesn't want Ivy causing them to split up. Yes, they
had words about Grace and what Ivy did to get rid of her, but they came to
see neither could rat on the other without causing themselves problems, so
it was apparently buried.
Not so fast! While Kay is really trying to be decent
to Ivy at this point, Ivy has no such plans for her nemesis. She
doesn't want "that woman" to be with her precious son, who she
only started paying attention to once he came back all grown up and didn't
really need her any more. Never mind that, tho. She wants to
make sure Kay never gets her hands on him, meaning she has to get her
fired and make Fox hate her, too. She simply wants Valerie to be
more careful next time, since Kay has figured out she was set up by
someone on the inside and is determined to figure out who.
You would think Ivy would be concentrating on Ethan as he
lies there comatose, with no one knowing whether he will live or die, or
whether he will have any brain function if he does live. Gwen is
eager to pull the plug at the first sign he might live as a vegetable, and
while Ivy and Sam don't want her to do that, they feel they have to honor
his living will, which makes sense. But the problem is, Gwen wants
to do it as soon as they find out instead of waiting a while to make sure
there's no hope, and I'm not sure how Ivy will take that.
Now, I find it truly strange that Ivy and Gwen both spend
more time threatening and worrying about Theresa than about Ethan's
condition and what they can do for him, if anything. Sam even told
Ivy to forget about Theresa and give Ethan all her attention and strength,
but she and Gwen seem unable to do that. I understand it from Gwen,
since her whole life revolves around Theresa and causing as much trouble
for her as possible. It's cost her two children already, and maybe
Ethan, too, since she knew about the poisoned guacamole yet told no one
because she wanted Theresa to kill Alistair so she and Rebecca could make
sure she got charged, convicted, and executed for it, but she still can't
get Theresa out of her mind.
I've heard people say it seems like she's in love with
Theresa and angry that she can't have her, considering how much time she
spends obsessing over her. I wouldn't go that far, but I do have to
say, once her obsession cost her a daughter and the chance to have any
more kids, I would think she'd drop it and work on making sure her
marriage was strong and Ethan was content with her. That would keep
Theresa from being any kind of threat at all. Now, whatever you
think about her, Theresa has tried several times to move on from Ethan,
but every time she does he manages to let her know that she is the one he
really, truly loves and draws her right back into the fray.
They keep saying Theresa is her own worst enemy, but I'd
have to say that applies to both Gwen and Ethan, too. Gwen can't
stop thinking about Theresa and worrying about what she may want, and
Ethan can't stop thinking about her, either, and wanting to be with her.
These two create their own problems, just as much as Theresa does hers.
But, anyway, I am anxious to see what the test results are going to be and
what Gwen, Ivy, and Sam do once they find out. It could be a very
I am also anxious to see what Endora is going to do next
for Kay and Fox. Yes, I know Tabitha keeps telling her there is no
way to stop what's going to happen, but you know that little tyke is going
to keep playing Cupid with those two, and my guess is she will get what
she wants - or else. It was nice to see Tabby showing she has
feelings for Kay and Maria, and isn't happy with the predicament they find
themselves in with Ivy and Valerie. She may be an evil old witch,
but she truly does have a heart, and it keeps popping up all the time now.
Another thing I'm getting interested in is this Passions
Red woman. Who on earth is she? Rachel? That's the
prevailing wisdom at this point, but I just think that's too easy. I
think it has to be someone we'd never expect. I was thinking it
could be Edna or Beth, but I don't think so. The voice is wrong.
Oh, I guess it could be Edna disguising her voice, but I just really think
Kay and/or Fox would recognize either of them. But I've got another
theory I'd like to share with you, so hear me out.
I thought it was strange that Rachel would know about
Jessica Bennett. True, she thought Kay was her, but she was close.
How would Rachel know anything about her, tho, and why would she want to?
She died when Sheridan was young, well before either Kay or Jessica were
born, so she would have no knowledge of them at that point. Ok, so
maybe she's been keeping an eye on the goings on in Harmony, but why would
that include the Bennett girls? It wouldn't. She'd want to
know about Alistair, Katherine, Julian and Sheridan, and the grandkids.
She'd have no reason to think about the Bennetts.
There is one woman who would be old enough to have been
connected to Alistair somehow and who would be interested in what Sam did
with his life: his mother! Now, what if this is his mother,
who he believes died years ago, and at some point she was involved with
Alistair romantically. Somehow, for some reason, they split up and
she met and married Sam's father. Now, if Alistair still loved her,
or at least considered her his property, that would explain his hatred for
Sam's father and the harsh feelings he's harbored for Sam and his family
all these years, too. What if, now that Al has caused so many
problems for her son and his family, she has decided to come back and make
him pay for all of it? And what if, in reality, Sam turns out to be
Alistair's son, not his fathers, ala Ethan? Wouldn't that be a kick
in the pants?
I don't know what the answer is any more than any of
you do, but I think this would make for a really interesting twist to
things, much more than just having Rachel show up alive (yawn!) after all
these years. I mean, if the whole world knows who's risen from the
dead before the story even started, what fun is that? Now, I don't
have enough faith in the innovativeness of the Passions writing staff to
be certain they won't take the easy way out, but I would really love it if
they really gave us a surprising twist for once.
Ok, I guess that's about it for now. As I said
at the beginning, I am actually anxious for Monday to get here, and I hope
when I see it I won't be disappointed. But you know if I am, you'll
hear it here next week. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I
am thankful for the chance to write this column every week, and that
people like you come in and read it. Thanks so much to all who make
