Ok, first off I need to apologize for doubting
"them". This is not an easy thing to do, but you gotta do
what you gotta do, you know? Remember when I was upset because all
the rumors about secrets being revealed and stories finally climaxing
seemed to be just more of the same old stale, untrue promises we've been
used to? Well, I was wrong, and yes, they did get it done before the
month was through. So, I'm sorry, JER and writers, I was
wrong.....at least it seems that way now, anyway.
I have to admit, this was one of the most satisfying weeks
I've seen yet on this show. Some long-held secrets finally made
their way out, there was a lot of action, and even some real fun stuff
going on, and I've not been able to say that often, if ever in times past.
Honestly, I think I've enjoyed this week more than almost any other in the
history of this show. True, there were parts of it that I could have
done without, but all in all, I mostly enjoyed this week.
First off, Chad and Whitney found out they really aren't
siblings after all. It was, of course, another dastardly scheme by
Alistair to cause more pain and suffering. Now, I have no idea why
he chose this scheme, nasty as it all was, but who knows the mind of a
perverted old man, anyway? He really put those two, their families,
and their child through more torture than anyone should ever have to bear
over the last few years, but at least it's over now.
It seems Chad isn't really Julian and Eve's son after all,
but Alistair and Liz'. Now, that's a mix that really turns my
stomach, and that's not easy to take, but if it gets those two back
together, then I can swallow a ton of Tums or something and learn to live
with it. We don't know the whole story, of course, but if I had to
guess I'd say she became pregnant when he raped her. As evil and
vile as she is, I can't see her willingly having an affair with the old
goat, so that's the only way I can think of that she could have borne his
Whatever the cause of it, tho, it means Chad and Whitney
can be together again, and raise their son together, as it should be.
I have to think Chad will finally be glad he was raised by all those
foster families, too, since the alternative would have been even worse.
We've already seen what the old lizard did to Julian, so Chad was really
lucky to have escaped that fate. I have to say I'm thrilled with
this turn of events, since I've always loved them together. Now,
that's a love that could really work, given the chance.
Theresa has finally found some information that can ease
some of her concerns, at least for a while, but I keep wondering how it's
going to get Ethan to leave Gwen and go back with her. I mean, Jane
is their child, too, and all that did was give Gwen reason to steal her
from Theresa, so why wouldn't she do the same with Little Ethan? I
mean, she already stole him once, and that's when she thought he was
Julian's son, so it seems logical to me that that's what would happen.
Of course, logic and Passions have never worked well
together, so why start now? Oh, it's not that they can't work, it's
just that they're never given the chance. But all this just calls
into question the "prophecies" Theresa has received concerning
her, Ethan, and their future happiness, or lack of it. The nun said
she'd get some news that would bind her and Ethan together
forever.....they share another child. But, as I said, if it didn't
work with Jane, why would it with Little Ethan?
I don't know, something just doesn't feel right here.
I'm thinking they'll be bound together, yes, but they still won't be
together, because he still won't leave Gwen. See, she seems to have
escaped being outted as the real liar, the one who actually outted Ethan's
paternity and then spent the years since lying about it, but nothing
Theresa does ever gets her the proof she needs to confirm that for Ethan.
We already know he refused to leave Gwen without some kind of proof, so I
really don't see them actually being together.
Now, "losing her love", as the e-mail said, or
"suffering much pain", as the nun said, could mean anything.
We've all heard of Little Ethan's supposed fate, I'm sure, but is that
really what it means? Couldn't it also mean that Gwen takes both
children and Ethan, leaving Theresa with no one, and only the pain of
losing them all for good? It makes sense to me, but then again,
making sense is not a Passions staple, either.
Noah and Fancy still haven't been able to reconnect,
either. Jessica ended up married to Spike, in an attempt to keep him
from testifying against her in court for the murders of the johns, and she
can't back up the fact that Noah was only pretending to be with Maya
because Lena threatened Fancy, at Alistair's orders. Therefore, he
has no way of proving what he says is true, and Fancy won't accept his
word for anything.
Besides, she seems to be more and more interested in Luis
these days, so she probably doesn't really want to believe Noah anyway.
What a fickle woman she is! Just when I was beginning to think she
might actually be a decent person, she turns into the old Fancy, who
couldn't stick with one man if her life depended on it. Now, true,
she feels betrayed by Noah, but once she heard the real story, why did she
not believe him? She should know he's not lying to her, but she
simply won't accept it, and that's because she's moved on to Luis.
I loved the Lesbian fighters! True, it was kind of
hokey, but come on, this is Passions, why wouldn't it be? And
anyway, it was so much fun to watch it made up for the hokiness. Can
you imagine Simone and Paloma, after being unable to get the police to
help them and their friends because they are in Alistair's pocket, going
to a lesbian bar and recruiting them to go beat the tar out of Al and his
henchmen? Hilarious, is all I can say.
And the old man was shaking in his boots when he heard
them coming! He knew exactly who they were, and it scared him silly,
at least for a while. Now, that's funny. My only complaint is
that the women didn't go for his throat. I mean, if he's the one
they hate, wouldn't they have tried to do him in at some point?
True, one woman did approach him, but Beth knocked her on her rear end,
and she didn't try again. I was so hoping she'd get up and punch
Beth in the kisser, knocking her back through the wall behind them, but no
I got a kick out of Norma and Edna, too, for once.
Norma was having a ball, fighting Alistair's henchmen, and she even got a
rare moment of closeness with "Daddy", when she scared the gun
Beth was holding on him out of her hand, and Al actually thanked her.
That was kind of cute, in a yucky sort of way. And Edna, waving her
skirts at one of the thugs.....he was recoiling as if he were being beaten
with a two-by-four, and I couldn't help but wonder if it was the smell she
was wafting at him that did it, or the sight of what was under that skirt.
I guess we'll never know, but it was funny.
Back in Harmony, we had two stories going that I could
have done without. First, Julian met up with Rebecca and begged her
once again to let him have a divorce, and this time she relented, which
made both he and Eve very happy. But, before they could even really
enjoy the news, word came that a drunken TC had driven his car into a very
bad accident and was on the brink of death.
Of course, Eve had to run to his side, and Julian was very
understanding. He even prayed that TC would live, although it was a
bit on the selfish side, since he knew if he died, Eve would feel so
guilty it might affect the two of them. I guess he's right, too, but
I sure hope not. TC deserves whatever he gets, actually, since he
was a total jerk to her once Liz told her story. Even finding out
she was a liar didn't seem to soften him up any, as he continued to mouth
off at Eve and treat her badly.
Yes, he seemed to be sorry for the way he acted at times,
but whenever something went wrong, he still blamed it on Eve and her
"lack of character", or whatever. He's the idiot that got
drunk and decided to take off in his car, so whatever happens to him is
his own fault. However, you know Eve and Julian are going to pay for
it, since no couple can ever be truly happy on this show. That
really bugs me, because I love these two together, and I'd hate to see her
leave Julian to go take care of TC.
Kay has really gotten herself into a pickle at this point.
She got shocked by loose wires on the washing machine, and totally lost
her memory, at least as to who she loves and is engaged to. Funny
how she can remember everything else, except that she is engaged to Fox,
not Miguel. Personally, I think it's just an act on her part so she
can dump Fox and take up with Miguel without being blamed for it.
Siren is on to her, however. She thinks it's all an
act, too, and while she and I are probably wrong, it does make sense,
considering the things Kay has been willing to do in the past to get the
man. I really feel sorry for Fox, because not only is his heart
breaking, he's probably going to be the one who pays for Kay's
Siren tried to cure Kay's problem with a baseball bat, but
once that didn't work, she decided that payback's fair play, so she
started working her mermaid-y magic on poor Fox, enchanting him with her
Siren Song, which no man can resist. Now she has him in her web, so
to speak, and there seems to be nothing even Tabitha and Endora can do to
stop her from making love to him, leaving him unable to ever be with a
human woman again. If that happens, even if Kay does get her memory
back, she and Fox will be done with for good.
I can't help wondering what good being a witch is if you
can't use your power when you need to. I mean, they can do
everything under the sun, it seems, and Endora is even the one that
conjured up Siren in the first place, so how can they not stop her from
ruining Fox? It makes no.....oh, never mind. I'm so tired of
saying that. I just hope they can come up with something to stop
Siren and get Kay to remember who she really wants to be with, and I hope
that's still Fox.
So, all in all, this was a pretty good week, even tho
there were parts that didn't sit well. I hope the pace keeps going
during July, because it's really been pretty nice to have stories that
actually moved forward instead of just spinning their wheels. I'm
hoping being chopped from the Days head writing position might make JER
realize he's really not doing such a great job, and maybe he might start
trying to write better stories for Passions. Maybe. Hey,
we can always hope, right?
