2/21 - 2/25
This is going to be another question week for me, since I
was left with so many of them running around in my feeble little brain.
I have to say, at least this week was more memorable than last, so it was
an improvement, but I just kept wondering what was going on with some of
the characters since they certainly weren't acting like themselves.
Anyway, I have a lot of questions to be answered, but first I'd like to
give praise where it's due.
I thought there were some good scenes this week, sprinkled
throughout. I loved the scenes where Beth tried to poison Sheridan
but Precious foiled her plans. Watching Beth crawling across the
floor to get to the bathroom and rid herself of as much of the stuff as
possible was a riot! I like the whole idea of having the bad deed
put back on the person who did it, anyway, but Kelly's handling of the
scenes was great. I loved watching her hanging from the chair,
trying not to fall completely to the floor, and watching Sheridan pick her
up, calling her sweetheart or whatever it was.....a perfect touch. I
couldn't help but wish the poison would do it's work, but of course, if it
did we wouldn't have Beth to hate, now would we? I do wish they
would let her be found out, though. I think some jail scenes or
loony bin scenes with her would be great. Oooh, how about her and
Gwen together? Now, I'd almost be willing to pay to see that.
I thought the whole thing with Chad was great, too.
I know, the subject is heavy with the yuck factor, but believe it or not,
this happens to people more than you would like to believe, and you
probably know someone who is married to their own half-sibling without
being aware of it. Look at all the children fathered by the
same men running around in the same area. If they don't know about
each other, they could fall in love without ever knowing they are related.
Anyway, to watch poor Chad try to figure out a way to be with Whitney, and
her inability to decide what to do were heartbreaking. Of course,
the reaction of Fox and the others was totally understandable and we all
know they can't possibly do what Chad wants, but I think the writers did a
good job of showing the turmoil of these two people without going totally
overboard. I think Father Lonigan's understanding attitude and
handling of the situation was great, too. I loved the shock on
everyone's face when he said it could work, too.
OK, now for my questions. I know there are more than
I will list here, but I'm telling you there were just so many I can't
remember them all. Here goes with the ones I can remember, however.
First, will the real Sheridan please stand up. I think most of my
questions concerned her actions at the airport, actually. First and
foremost - who the heck is this person? Why is she yelling at Luis?
How can she blame him because she has no backbone? How can she
switch from total, unadulterated adoration to total, unadulterated hate at
the drop of a hat? Why is she whining about him not knowing how it
feels to lose a baby when it was his baby, too? And what happened to
her certainty that Marty is her son and never died at all? Who on
earth died and made her Queen of the World, able to order everyone else
around and expecting them to do as she says? Who the heck does she
think she is?
OK, now let me try to explain my thinking here. We
have always known Sheridan as a loving, giving person, not at all like her
father, yet this week we see her ranting, spewing hatred from every pore
of her body at Luis because her mother decided to leave town. How on
earth can she blame Luis for that? Katherine is an adult, and
running away from trouble is her forte, so it's not an unusual thing to
see her racing out of town to escape the problems she, herself, created.
No one forced her to go, and Sheridan seems not to be able to make the
connection between what she was yelling at Luis and what her mother did.
She was totally willing to say that Katherine didn't force Martin to leave
years ago, yet somehow Luis did force her to leave now. As for him
telling her not to love her mother, she needs to realize that is her
fault, not his. If she really loved her mother she should have stood
up to Luis and told him she wanted to have a relationship with her no
matter what he thought. He loves her enough he would have gotten
over his pique quickly, and as long as Sheridan didn't force him to be in
Katherine's presence they could have worked it out. But no, she took
his side of her own free will and she said what she did because it was
what she felt at the time, so she can't blame Luis for any of that now.
Her jump from a true, pure, total love for him to hating him so badly she
can't even stand to have him touch her is beyond belief. It just
doesn't happen that way. But the worst thing she did was belittle
his feelings about the loss of their child as if they mean nothing.
How dare she do that? And to say it didn't matter because he has
another child.....good Lord, how stupid is that? I don't care if you
have 20 kids, you still mourn the one that died just as much as if it was
your only child. No amount of other children can make the pain you
feel hurt any less. Besides, just a few minutes before this
happened, she was positive Marty is her son, that their baby didn't
actually die but is alive and well, living with Beth. Now, which is
it? Is he really alive or is he really dead? She used the
supposed death of their baby to generate pity for herself, knowing there
was no truth to it, and that is really low, something I would never have
expected from the Sheridan we know and love. As for telling everyone
else what to do, where did she get off telling everyone else to shut up,
she can't stand it, when she herself made bigger scenes with Luis?
And every time Theresa said something about Jane, Sheridan parroted it
about her mother. I got real tired of Whiny Sheridan yesterday,
that's all I know.
OK, now for some other questions. What the heck is
wrong with Jessica and Paloma? Do they have a death wish or what?
Do they simply want to be beaten and raped? Is it such a thrill they
can't live without it? OK, Jessica may have the childish thinking
that it could never happen to her, but Paloma? I don't know of any
woman who would blithely go back to the scene of what she went through
willingly, especially not alone. Do the writers honestly think we
are stupid enough to buy that? No, I can't see either of them going
back there, actually, no matter how little there is to do in their town.
There has to be some place the good kids in town go to when they want to
get together so why not go there? What happened to the recreation
center Luis and Sam were so proud of, by the way? Where did it go?
And what girl with a brain is going to accept stickers from guys they
don't know and then lick them when told to? Please, these girls have
to have heard about the drugs available in places like that and the men
that will use them to get girls "in the mood". Just how
stupid are these two? I've said it before and I'll say it again,
these writers have no clue when it comes to real life or else they have
some pretty lousy friends and family. Normal people simply don't do
the things these guys seem to think we do, and it's really not a good
thing. Can you imagine the young people out there watching this show
who believe it's OK to do whatever you want to if it gets you what you
want, even if it means stabbing a friend in the back? Or that all
girls are just waiting to give up their virginity to the first guy that
comes along and asks for it? Maybe in the writer's vulgar
imaginations, but not in real life, or at least not among those who don't
watch this stuff and believe it's real.
Why isn't Rebecca in jail, or at least in handcuffs?
She aided and abetted a felony, a Federal capital crime, and yet she is
allowed to run free causing problems and running her mouth off at everyone
there? Good Lord, she has admitted to what she did, even bragged
about it, and yet no one has thought of arresting her for it? And
Alistair too, by the way. He knew Gwen and the baby were on the
plane, if only by the fact Rebecca was there, yet he allowed them to leave
and is doing nothing to help get her back. Now, I could be wrong,
but didn't the pilot say Alistair gave him the three envelopes with the
possible destinations in them? He could tell them the three
possibilities and give them at least a starting point, and yet he isn't
doing that. Of course, you wouldn't expect him to, but it is a
reason to arrest him. Sure, he would never go to trial, I'm sure,
but at least they would be doing their job. I got so tired of
Rebecca's mouth running this week I wanted to smack her. I was glad
to see Theresa got a few hair pulls in, but I kept wondering why Pilar
didn't finish the job she started on her before. Sure, she made one
half-hearted attempt to get to her, but that wasn't even the least bit
convincing. The worst she did was tell her in Spanish that she should have
suffocated at birth, but I doubt that the ditz understood her, and she
only made fun of her for it anyway, so what good was it? No, she
needs to beat her senseless, rip off her arms and beat her to death with
the bloody stumps. OK, that's harsh, but if it were my child who was
the target of this trollop's venomous words, she wouldn't be saying
anything else for a long time, if ever. I wouldn't stand for it,
especially if she had whisked my grandchild off under the "care"
of her psychotic daughter who had tried several times to kill my child.
No, she wouldn't be swaggering around the airport, lording it over
everyone, if it were me instead of Pilar. Someone needs to do
something about that woman, and quickly.
Last, but not least, why doesn't Ethan grow some gonads?
He is the most wishy-washy fool I've ever seen, and it simply doesn't get
any better as time goes on. I mean, he still allows Rebecca to lead
him around by the nose. Did you see him meekly follow her when she
demanded he do so? Good Lord, he needs to stand up to her and tell
her she's wrong, she's Satan in disguise, she is the scum of the earth,
and she's totally ruined her daughter, making her unlovable and unfit.
He needs to tell her he never truly loved her daughter, she was just the
safe port he went back to whenever he couldn't have Theresa but she's a
poor second to his real love, thanks to Rebecca herself. He needs to
remind her he only married Gwen because she trapped him by getting
pregnant, and the reason she lost Sarah is because of her never-ending
need to one-up Theresa. She is the one who was so adamant that
Theresa abort one of the babies she was carrying, so her son's death is on
her hands, not Theresa's, but no, he meekly lets her say whatever she
wants to and does nothing about it. What a gigantic wuss he is.
I really wish Theresa would see him for what he really is an kick him to
the curb. OK, she's not an angel herself, but nothing she ever did
was meant to hurt anyone deliberately. She just went after what she
wanted. However, Rebecca and Gwen have always done whatever they
could, hurt whoever they had to, to get their way, and that is the
big difference between them.
OK, that's enough for now. I know there were other
questions I had, but as I told you, I don't remember them all.
All I know is I just kept asking them as I watched and they never seemed
to end this week. Maybe we will get some of the answers next week,
and I can tell you right now they can go a long way toward answering some
of them by simply arresting Rebecca and locking her up in jail until Gwen
brings the baby back, if nothing else. Yeah, like that's really
going to happen.
