Ok, just when we begin to think we see movement, they slow
the darn show down again. What's up with that? I was so
excited, thinking we were finally going to get some payoff for all our
years of faithful watching - painful as it has been most of the time - and
this was going to make the whole thing worth while. Now it seems to
have stopped dead in it's tracks, for the most part, and we're sitting
here trying to get it going again by pushing with our feet. You
remember riding in wagons when you were small, and you had to sit half in
and half out, pushing with your foot to get it started, then pull the foot
in and roll as long as possible, until it slowed down, and then the foot
would come out and start pushing again? Well, that's what this is
feeling like now.
The only sign of any movement is Alistair getting
his hands on the chalice, and Theresa chasing down JT to get the goods on
Gwen and Rebecca, and even that seems to be stuck retracing itself over
and over. I don't know, maybe it comes from being too old to want to
wait for the answers now, but this is bugging more than ever. I
mean, I just keep sitting there, almost yelling at the screen to get on
with it, let them finally get the truth out, once and for all. It's
Whitney finally found the chalice, and then she
found the code that was supposed to let them take it from it's cabinet,
but it didn't work right. Now, I have to admit, watching Al get
zapped by the chalice when he grabbed it was the most fun I've had in a
long time, but the problem is that it will keep this story going even
longer. Now she will have to try to figure out another part of the
code or whatever, meaning we get more of her going over each painting inch
by inch. Oh, Lord, I don't think I can stand it.
One more thing that bugged me is the fact that Al
went ballistic, even using curse words when he got zapped, and it barely
fazed the "nun". Yes, she chided him for the word, but
only barely, and it didn't seem like his outburst bothered her much,
either. She did look scared, but come on, where was the puzzlement
that "God", or the guy working for him, would act that way?
Ok, the scene was short, so maybe they'll have her questioning him next
week, but still, she didn't seem to notice he'd acted like a jerk, not a
And while I'm on the subject of Sister Whitney, how
on earth can she not see Alistair's face under that hood? I mean, we
can see it when the camera turns toward him, and we're only seeing it on a
TV screen, so why can't she see it when she's right there, looking right
at him? Oh, yeah, maybe it's the contacts blinding her.
Whatever it is, it seems really stupid not to be able to see the guys face
when he's standing right there, inches away from her.
Theresa was superwoman this week, and she did manage
to stay within striking distance of JT until she could get him to admit
the truth to Ethan. I found the whole business of him running,
trying to get away from her, while holding that stupid phone to his ear
and giving a play-by-play to the two Witches of Hotchkiss a bit stupid,
tho. Who in their right mind would do that? Is it any wonder
she managed to keep up with him, fancy dress and heels notwithstanding?
I have to say, that jump she made between the two
sections of scaffolding was something else. I laughed like a crazy
person after seeing her flailing through the air, screeching like a
banshee, and I thought there was no way that kind of technique could get
her across the chasm, but it did. She managed to grab a bar of the
framework and pull herself up onto the board, easy as could be. But
then once she's up there, she trips and falls off anyway. Good Lord,
Chaplin couldn't do better slapstick than that. And she even managed
to pull herself up again. Super Woman, for sure.
Ethan's jump across, in his attempt to keep up with
her, was pretty boring by comparison, even tho he made it from board to
board, and even managed to stay standing. It just lacked something,
you know? But anyway, he did manage to stay with the two of them,
and he was even there when JT finally caved in - for $10,000,000 - and
told him the truth. Now, there are serious doubts as to whether
Ethan will believe him or not, and I think my money has to go on
"No". I mean, the guy is a certifiable idiot, since he has
never believed Theresa about it in the first place. I mean, why
would she burn the heck out of her arm if not to retrieve the
disk Gwen tossed into the furnace? Yet he took Gwen's side and
believed her lies instead of Theresa's truth. The guy has no common
sense, I tell you.
Noah is still upset with Fancy and Luis, of course.
He is convinced they are a couple now, even tho he fully expects her to
believe he and Maya aren't. And she has seen them in more flagrant
situations than he's seen her and Luis in, yet he can't even consider that
he could be wrong? It doesn't make sense. At this point, tho,
it seems Fancy is really wishing she and Luis were together, so maybe
Noah's on to something. It's hard to tell what Luis is thinking, but
if he doesn't manage to get Marty back, it's quite likely he might fall
back on Fancy. You know Sheridan won't touch him without Marty, so
Fuis might actually become a reality.
Kay is making me crazy, and she's doing the same to Fox, I
think. I mean, she just can't leave Miguel alone. On top of
that, she's making no secret of the fact she can't stand him being with
Siren, and Fox is beginning to wonder what's really up with her. She
needs to cool her jets, let Miguel live his own life, and concentrate on
Fox. I'm telling you, Miguel isn't that great a catch. The boy
is dumb, and that's putting it mildly.
He meets Charity and falls head-over-heels for her, then
spends years chasing her around the world because he just can't give up on
her. Then he meets Siren, and even tho she's strange he just can't
stay away from her, either. And just seconds before he is with her,
he's telling Kay he loves her madly and wants to marry her, etc.
Come on now, guy, how hard is it to choose one woman and stick with her?
But then, the same can be said for Kay.
She figured out this week that Tabitha is mixed in to the
Siren business, yet she still hasn't figured out she's the reason Kay
suddenly started wanting Miguel again, and even more strange, that he's
begun to want her? And all that stuff about them in the boat,
floating to a lonely beach and getting all chummy - what was that about?
How can she not realize it was a magic spell? She's been living with
the witch, watching her work, for a couple of years now, yet she doesn't
recognize it when she sees it? Not very likely. I don't know how
this is going to end up, but it really is a dumb storyline.
I just hope the Vendetta story gets over soon. I
admit, I've enjoyed parts of it, and it has moved some stories along, at
least for a while, but now it's just stuck in the mud, not really going
anywhere, and I'm tired of it. I want Julian and Eve, Sam and Ivy,
TC and Liz (yes, I know that's strange, but that's just how bored I am
getting), and all the things that have been going on with them. I
really don't understand just deserting all these characters while they
concentrate on the Rome story. It's obvious there isn't that much
going on over there, so why not throw in some movement in those other
stories, too? It would keep it interesting, at least. I mean,
even another of those romantic evenings with Evian would add so much to
the show, and I know I'd be happy to see it.
Hopefully the Vendetta story will move along and get
off my screen soon, but God only knows when it will really end. I'll
just have to keep hoping it will begin moving and keep it up, instead of
stagnating in the same revolving actions and dialog, ad infinitum.
Enough, already. Get it over and get us back to Harmony.
