Passions Opinion 7/3/06 - 7/7/06
Short week, not much happening.....makes you wonder why
they didn't just take the whole week off and start again new next Monday,
doesn't it? I mean, really, what was the point of this week? I
can't find one, can you?
It started out with promise, tho. Chad and Whitney
found out at long last that they really aren't brother and sister, and
they can finally be together and raise Miles as a family. I have to
say, that was a really great turn of events, but then it hit a brick wall
and fell right over backwards, leaving nothing but fond memories of
the happy reunion. Yes, we got a few minutes of celebration, some
tender love scenes, some happy banter, but then - nothing. Chad
disappeared, and Whitney ran around Rome with Theresa, looking for Ethan.
Speaking of Theresa, what the heck is up with all that?
I mean, she's chasing JT all over Rome, demanding the proof he has that
Gwen and Rebecca are the ones who actually outted Ethan's paternity, then
blamed it on Theresa, right? Only, once she finally gets him, has
him cornered and pinned, he tells her Little Ethan is really Ethan's son,
not Julian's, and she simply drops the demand for the real scoop and runs
off dementedly, sure that this knowledge will bring Ethan back to her
forever. Now, just how stupid is that, especially when she lets JT
run off for parts unknown, taking the proof with him?
Now, we all know that while this information is
interesting, and it's what we've all known since - well, since Little
Ethan was conceived, actually - it's not something that will make him
leave Gwen. Come on, people, Jane is his daughter, but he's still
with Gwen! Nope, as I have said before, all that will happen is Gwen
will demand he assert his parental rights and take Little Ethan to live
with them, then start claiming him as HER son, not Theresa's. How
much brain power do you have to have to realize that? I have to say,
this is the stupidest move Theresa's made since.....well, last week, at
Luis had Alistair cornered, had him and Beth in his grasp,
and yet the old lizard and his evil spawn managed to slip away again.
Just when things start looking up, they pull the same old stunts and slap
us in the face yet again. Totally unsatisfying, I tell you. He
and Fancy had Marty within their reach, and yet he's gone again, just like
always. Luis needs to stop being so Dudley-Do Right in all this
stuff, don't you think? Buy a gun, load it with armor piercing
bullets, and mow the two of them down at first sight. Now, that
would be a satisfying end to the whole mess, and yet they simply don't do
it. They continue to let these two get away, and take Marty with
Sheridan, of course, is no help at all. She either
cries and whines, or she screams and yells at Luis for not stopping them.
What good does that do? None, obviously. This week found her
in bed, watching Luis and Fancy stumble around Rome trying to find her son
after yet another botched "apprehension", while Chris'
connection with Al was made clear yet again. Nothing new there,
either. Well, I guess you'd have to say the whole
lions-chasing-Luis-and-Fancy part is new, pretty much. Not much to
get excited about, tho, in the grand scheme of things. Al and Beth
still got away, yet again, with Marty.
Meanwhile, back in Harmony, things continue to be stuck in
quicksand, also. Kay still hasn't managed to get her memory back,
while Fox and Miguel continue to argue about just how far Miguel can go in
his charade of being engaged to her. I still say, he's enjoying this
mix-up a bit too much. How hard is it to not kiss her back when she
locks lips with him, or at least keep it a short, more platonic kiss
instead of a deep, tongue-tangling, passion-filled one? Not that
hard, and yet he continues to play the whole sex thing to the hilt,
enjoying every minute of it, while twisting the knife a little deeper in
Fox's back the whole time.
I just keep waiting for Fox to finally haul off and knock
the opportunistic skunk clear into next week. He's really losing a
lot of respect from me, I'll tell you that. He's simply taking
advantage of a situation that a real gentleman would do all within his
power to resist, and he's enjoying it way too much. It's almost like
rape, at least in my opinion. He knows she's not in her right mind,
and yet he's willing to go as far as he can get away with, enjoying
himself all the way. All he had to do was "remind" her
that they had made a pact of celibacy until their wedding night, or
something like that, and then let her sleep in her own bed, shower by
herself, and keep her dignity at the same time. Nope, not our little
perv, Miguel. He has to get all he can, while he can.
Endora has done all she can do, but it's not enough,
either. And she managed to burn their house down in the end, too.
Poor little tyke, she wants her big brother to be happy, but there just
doesn't seem to be anything she can do about it. Tabby is still half
in Fox's camp, half in Miguel's, thinking that having him and Kay together
is the only way to keep him from Charity, but if she'd only stop and
think, the best thing would be for him and Siren to get together. I
mean, if her objective, as she's so often stated, is to keep Miguel from
making love to Charity and thereby enabling her to come into her
"full powers", wouldn't it make sense to have him make love to
Siren and end up unable to ever make love to a human woman? He'd
never be able to be with Charity in that case, while with Kay, he could
easily drop her at any time and run back to Charity. The old witch
still isn't thinking clearly.
Siren's enchantment of Fox was a bit much, don't you
think? I mean, I enjoyed the vocals, great voice and all, but having
him stumble along to her room like a zombie on Prozac was just dumb.
It was so sweet to see him fighting her spell so hard, tho. He just
couldn't stop remembering Kay, wanting her, and it blew holes in Siren's
plan the whole time. Even if the fire hadn't happened, I don't think
he'd have gone through with making love to Siren at all. The pull of
Kay was just too strong for him, and when the fire broke out, she was the
first person he thought of. Now, if that's not real love, I don't
know what is, and yet they writers want to fool around and have her
crawling all over Miguel. It's just not right, I tell you.
Last but not least, just how long is it going to take for
TC to give up the ghost? Come on, we've been waiting for something
like this for years now, and still they have to drag it out indefinitely.
Let the guy go, would you please? Put him, and us, out our misery
already! Yes, I know, they have to play up the whole
"let's-make-problems-for-Eve-and-Julian" business, but this is
ridiculous. I mean, all these two have had is trouble from day one,
and enough is enough. He loves her, she loves him, so let them
finally be happy. I guess losing TC is a traumatic thing, but still,
he's been nothing but a royal pain in the rear end for years now, and
enough is enough. Let him go!
Well, that's about all for now. Not much happened,
really, and certainly not much that was new and worth talking about, and I
really do think they could have chucked this week and we would never have
missed a thing. The new stuff could have been covered during the
first ten minutes or so on Monday, and the stories moved on from there,
and we'd never have known the difference. Actually, it probably
would have made for a faster-paced show, which really would have made it
more enjoyable, don't you agree? They need to get these stories
moving, come up with new and more exciting stuff, and yet we all know that
will never happen, don't we? Well, hope springs eternal, even now.
