So, how is everyone liking the Vendetta storyline? I
thought it was pretty weak for a while, but it seems to be picking up now.
It still has it's boring times, but it is holding my interest better now.
I guess having it based more on Luis finding Marty and Theresa finding
(hopefully) the proof she needs to blow Gwen out of the water are the
reasons for that. I was just bored to tears with the whole
Whitney/"God" and Three Stoogettes Hunt Lost Paintings
scenarios. Now that they're in the background, it's a little more
I'm enjoying having Beth back, too. Well, except for
the part where she skulks around cursing Fancy and trying to kill her -
oh, wait. That's pretty much all she's doing now, isn't it?
Still, it's good to see her back. Maybe it's been long enough so I
can handle the whole thing better, at least for a while. Hopefully
they won't keep this going on for too much longer, tho. That's the
whole problem with this show, you know. They just keep the stories
going on and on and on. They never know when to end it.
I am upset with the Kay/Fox/Miguel story, tho. Come
on, Kay and Fox are so good together, why muck it up with having her
falling for Miguel all over again? Why would she do that, for
goodness sake? I mean, the guy treated her like yesterday's garbage,
then deserted her and their newborn daughter to go traipsing around the
world, looking for a woman who obviously didn't want anything more to do
with him, and now he comes back two years later and decides he really does
love Kay and wants her back? Well, I say "Too bad, doofus.
You didn't want her when it mattered, so stop screwing her life up now
that she's found someone who really does love her."
Now, I need to talk about Theresa's seeming lucky break here.
I guess I'm kind of gun shy or something, because I just keep thinking
it's not really going to happen, you know? How many times have the writers
made it seem she was really going to get the goods on Gwen and Rebecca and
prove to Ethan that the wife he feels he needs to honor so badly isn't
really worth it at all? Numerous. Yet has she actually managed
to get that proof? NONE!!
Oh, she did find the tape, that's true, but she let Gwen
destroy it before she could play it for Ethan, so nothing came of it.
I just keep thinking that's what will happen here, too. I mean,
these people can't let a story end, ever, except for some stupid,
means-nothing thing like what was in TC's garage. Now, that was a
story that had no value whatsoever. Of all the things they could
have had in that garage, it ended up being the car that was wrecked when
he had the accident that ended his tennis career. I knew that was
what it was for months, so it wasn't really worth the wait to me.
See, that's my problem. I just keep waiting for some
really huge, really worth-it payoff from all these stories, and they just
keep giving us nothing. TC's garage - fizzle. Liz being outted
as the real culprit in her own poisoning, and as the would-be killer of
Julian and Alistair - fizzle. Rachel as the Lady with Red
Fingernails - fizzle. See what I mean? Even when they do
answer the questions, it's not worth waiting for in the first place.
Why can't they do a better job of it? Maybe they just don't want to.
I'm still waiting for Ivy to be outted for all her dirty
dealings, especially what she did to Grace and Sam. We keep being
told it will happen any day now, and it's supposed to happen with the
Vendetta story, but will it actually happen? It should. I have
a feeling that they can't answer their own questions or end the stories
they have going because they have no idea what else to write for the show
if they do. Absolutely no imagination. The most imaginative
reveal they've ever had was when Charlie turned out to be Alistair in
drag. Now, that was worth the wait, I have to say. But one
great reveal in seven years? Not a great track record in my book.
Anyway, I'm trying to keep an open mind in this whole
Vendetta storyline, but it's not easy. I really want a great story,
with a really great ending as payoff for watching, but I'm not holding my
breath. After all, we already know Alistair is the monk/God, and
he's not really in a coma any longer, so what more is there? I don't
care about the paintings, they seem to be nothing more than a distraction,
I don't care if Whitney ever finds that chalice or not, and I simply
couldn't care less about whether Noah ever figures out Spike is the killer
in time to get Fancy back. I just want Theresa to finally get proof
for Ethan, I want Luis to get Marty back and toss Beth in jail, at least
for a while, and I want Ivy exposed. If that happens, I'll be
thrilled, and watching this whole thing will have been worth it.
