Rebecca Staab gave a fantastic performance! She actually
made me feel sorry for Elizabeth, which is a really hard thing to do since
I have no respect for the character. I guess Elizabeth really is trying to
be a better mother.
Like last Friday, Caleb really got to me with the
sleigh. It's just so romantic! He was respectful of Tess, and he behaved
like a perfect gentleman, even though his motives aren't what he thinks
they are. I also like the way he's slowly realizing how he feels about
her, no matter how much he tries to fight it and convince himself that
Olivia is the one he wants.
I also loved Caleb's line, "What could be more
important than me?" Priceless!
Why didn't Caleb just pop into Elizabeth's room? I guess
he was being careful, in case Alison was there, but I thought he would
just know that kind of thing.
I'm glad we didn't see Lucy dump Kevin. It was nice to
be surprised when she came back in and told Ian what she had done. I
thought it might play out this way, but it was nice not to know for
The raw emotion on Ian's face when he thought Lucy had
chosen Kevin was really painful. Thorsten Kaye's performances have been
Alison's description of Joshua as "Mr.
Excitement" was hilarious. I thoroughly enjoyed the scene between
Alison, Elizabeth, and Caleb.
Casey's back! She always was my favorite twin. It was
nice to hear her mention Ed's name.
Rafe finally proved to Alison that they're not related.
Rebecca Staab's delivery of "Probably flapped his
big old bat wings all the way home" was great.
Rafe is using magic for romance again. I was cracking up
throughout the whole fog incident. The setup was very good, from hearing
Elizabeth on the phone and just knowing Rafe had done something, to seeing
Alison walk back into her room and find him pouring two glasses of
champagne. Elizabeth's reaction to the fog was funny, as was Alison's, but
for different reasons. Alison knew immediately that Rafe was behind it. I
don't know why she said she wanted to go to her room and go to
"sleep." She could have said she wanted to go to
"bed." Her mother wouldn't have thought anything of it, and it
wouldn't have been a lie.
Casey's mention of "Hey, Sister" was cute. I
liked the way she talked to Marissa. She told her off for being an idiot,
but at the same time, she was trying to soften the blow of having to leave
town and never remember Jamal.
Just about everything that happened at the
studio/rehearsal hall was great. It was funny when Caleb saw Ricky staring
at him and closed the door. When Casey came in, Ricky immediately took
notice. He and Jamal exchanged bewildered looks about her behavior. The
catfight was a real hoot! Casey just can't help herself. It's not enough
that Reese tried to kill her sister. The vamp's also after Ricky, and
Casey simply won't stand for it. She really wants to let Ricky know her
true identity, but at least for now she's trying to play by the rules.
That didn't stop her from staring at him, though. Ricky already seems
suspicious, but I wonder how long it will take for him and Jamal to figure
Casey replaced Marissa in the opening credits.
They used the older credits today, with Marissa instead
Kevin looked great. I really wish we'd get the real
Kevin back instead of this "Ryvin" hybrid.
Not being with Lucy for a few minutes sure has some
effect on Ian!!!
I liked the meeting in the park between Rafe and Caleb.
I enjoyed the last scene, especially when the Caleb
theme started playing. The music on this show is fantastic!
