I have to admit to you that I haven't seen a whole show
this week, so I've depended on the daily transcripts on TV MegaSite to keep
up. However, I still have opinions about what I've seen and
read, so here goes.
What on earth have they done to Theresa? Don't get
me wrong, I'm thrilled she finally has power, something she's lacked since
her brief stint as Julian's wife. She actually has the upper hand
over Gwen and Rebecca at this point, and that's never a bad thing, I
guess. However, the writers seem to have decided to make her more
Crane-like this time, and I have to say, so far I'm not enjoying
I love that she stopped the jet and kept Ethan and Gwen
from leaving with her daughter, and that she kicked Rebecca out of the
mansion, and I even enjoyed her warning to Fancy to watch her snotty
little self when talking to her "Grammy". Those were
highlights of the week in my mind. However, they seem to have added
a cruelness to her that she never had before, and that's just not right.
I guess it's not unexpected. Look what they've done
to Sheridan. In a few months time they've changed her from a loving,
caring, sympathetic sweetheart - half of the best couple on the show -
into a whining, rude, psycho trollop, jumping from crying over Luis'
coffin right into bed with Chris, a guy she barely knows. They
couldn't have done a better job of ruining a beloved character if they
tried. I was always a Shuis fan, but now I don't want them together
under any circumstances. Luis deserves better, and if they bring him
back and put him back with her, I will be extremely upset.
And how about Katherine? OK, yes, she did leave with
Pilar's husband all those years ago, and she did allow herself to live
with him "in sin", knowing his wife and kids were suffering back
in Harmony, but at least she tried to do what's right once they got home.
OK, yeah, she did have a threat from Alistair to help her decide to do it,
but still, she seemed like a reasonable, decent woman. Now, however,
she's ready to steal the man from his wife again, and doesn't care what it
will do to Pilar. One can only hope Martin is as deserving of
Pilar's trust and respect as she thinks he is.
So, Paloma and Simone find Alistair's secret stash of
documents in a hidden room under the basement of the Book Cafe, and it
seems it might be the beginning of all those secrets being revealed,
right? But not so fast, there. Now it seems it's all just
normal business documents, nothing more. My only hope lies in the
fact that nothing is ever as normal as it seems with that ogre.
Sheridan and Chris are in Hawaii, looking for the man they
think is holding Marty. I have to say, I've never seen anyone who
could make Hawaii seem dull and boring before, but these two certainly
have. Romantic? Not even. Exciting? Think again.
Nope, these two have taken one of the most beautiful places on earth and
turned it into "Eh, who cares" quicker than Easy Off cuts
through baked on grease. Great job, guys.
Fancy is still whining about Noah and Maya. I guess
I don't blame her, but she's still too annoying for words. Noah
should be more forthcoming with her, tho. He needs to tell her
everything. If she loves him, she'll keep his secrets, right?
Oh, wait. We're talking about Fancy here, and she can't keep her
mouth shut for beans. Still, I understand why she's upset, I just
wish she'd do her suffering in silence, you know? Still, when she
smarted off at Theresa on Friday she found out real quick that it wasn't
such a great idea, so maybe she'll be able to control herself at home now,
Maya, on the other hand, is a sneak. She's up to
something no good where Noah is concerned, and the whole beating thing was
a put on, mark my words. It's all part of the plan the Mystery Woman
has going. I wonder just what Noah did that caused someone to want
to treat him this way? So far we know he and Maya watched some guy
in an attic somewhere get shot, and then she wouldn't allow him to tell
the police so they broke up. Makes sense to me. Yeah, right.
I am loving Tabitha's dismay over Kay's seeming inability
to say "no" to Fox's proposal. She really doesn't want her
friend's heart broken, which is totally un-Tabby-like. The Boys in
the Basement are even getting "hot under the collar" at her each
time she remarks on it, although she keeps covering it up. It looks
like what Timmy started, Endora is nurturing, making Tabby feel love and
caring after all these years. Whatever it is, she's going out of her way
to keep Kay from accepting the proposal that will spell the end of her and
Fox's relationship, and it appears to be working. Hopefully Kay will
be able to explain her reasons for turning him down in a way that won't
expose Tabby but will keep him hanging around for the right moment.
Last but not least, I need to remark on Gwen and Rebecca's
chat yesterday. Now, we've always known Rebecca could quite easily
kill someone and not bat an eye, and that Gwen is willing to keep her
mouth shut once she finds out about it, but yesterday we got clear and
concise proof that Gwen is no better than her mother. She plainly
told her that she wasn't above killing Theresa, but only once it becomes
evident that she's going to win. Now, with everything Theresa has
ever done, she never deliberately set out to hurt Gwen, and killing her
isn't even on her radar. I think, given the right circumstances,
she'd really like Gwen, but she simply wants her away from Ethan and her
I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't consider
anyone who would even entertain the notion of killing another person over
a man to be a decent person. But, not only is she willing to
consider it under the right circumstances, she's actually tried to do just
that at least 4 times already! And it might even be five, since she
may have found out that her mother and Ivy set Theresa up for Julian's
"murder" and kept her mouth shut while the woman was
'"executed" for it. No, Theresa is no angel, but she
certainly isn't a blood-thirsty demon, either, although it seems the same
can't be said for Gwen. See? Economic status is no indicator
of a person's morality after all.
Well, after this week I can see the possibility of some
interesting and fun-to-watch scenarios being played out for the next few
weeks, and I certainly hope it works out that way. It shouldn't be
too much longer before Luis lights up the screen again, and if the stories
play themselves out the way they should, it points to a very good Spring
and Summer for Passions fans - as long as the show continues. Keep
your fingers crossed, as we should hear this month if it will or not.
