The best of the blogs.
While we said goodbye to Bo on “DOOL” this week, there was plenty of drama to go around on all of the soaps. Stephanie continued to share her feelings with her loved ones before she goes on “B&B” while AJ started off his return on “GH” by becoming a menace almost immediately. As for “Y&R” the characters are doing some adjusting to accommodate the new writers, and so far we like what we see.
It was goodbye bikinis and hello snow gear as Steffy and Liam’s romantic getaway to Hawaii was abruptly canceled when a concerned Bill and Brooke jumped on board and changed course. But Candace did not think things were what they seemed once they got to Aspen. “Brooke and Bill moved quickly to follow Katie, only to find she’d led them on a wild goose chase,” she said. “I love how Bill took the time to insult Liam’s Hawaiian shirt at the height of the crisis. Too funny. Steffy and Liam’s romance in Aspen has been light and fun to watch – interesting to see Liam noticing what qualities she brings out in him too. As for Brooke finding Bill appearing to have overdosed – I don’t believe it. That’s not in Bill’s character at all.” Read more in The Bold and the Beautiful Weekly Blog.
Christine is utterly confused when it comes to Gabi’s seeming about face in terms of her feelings about gay people. “Nick alluded to Gabi that while in prison he got into spirituality and religion and he believes people choose to be gay,” Christine says. “I am having a hard time buying this since he’s so scientific. (Scientific people more often than not are not spiritual or religious.) Gabi got over their massive differing beliefs on homosexuality with lightening speed but something this big should have had them at odds for weeks and in fact; this could have been the end of their relationship. I don’t even know what to think about this, nor do I understand Gabi’s thoughts. Maybe she’s just horny.” Read about more from last week, including Bo’s departure, in the Days of our Lives Weekly Blog.
While Johnny was dealing with the ever-growing problems of keeping Connie out of the loony bin, his ex Carly was moving on quite nicely, thank you very much. “Not only do these two have incredible sexual chemistry, their banter is just too cute,” Hollie says. “Sure, Todd has great banter with just about everyone he shares a scene with, but Carly is a real match for him. Todd has certainly done a lot of bad things since he has come to town, but he has done some good too for the people he loves. That makes him totally redeemable with a bit of an edge. Bad boys are Carly’s Kryptonite and Todd certainly fits the bill.” Meanwhile, AJ couldn’t stop telling people he was back. Read all about it in the General Hospital Weekly Blog.
It was a rough week for Marlena, who could not handle Kristen’s return at all. Matt said, “While Kristen’s return has not amounted to much so far, it has proved that Marlena is a few shrimps short of a cocktail. The former dame of Satan was coming apart at the seams after only a few days of her old enemy being back. John kept urging her to be cool but her face was becoming so creased with worry wrinkles that it resembled a highway after an earthquake. Since he has nothing else to do, Brady paid Kristen a visit and ordered her to stay away from his family. Wearing only a towel, she got suggestive. He called her names. This led to her slapping him. For a DiMera, that counts as sex.” Read more of Matt’s take on last week’s show in Matt’s Musings.
The effects of the new writers continue to have their reach, and Candace is most excited about all of the potential kookiness surrounding the dynamic of Jack, Phyllis and Adam. “The possibilities for entertaining scenes with Adam, Jack, and Phyllis working together are unlimited – love it. However, one thing I did not enjoy/understand this week was Phyllis’ out-of-the-blue whining about having to work with Adam. She’s already been working for Tag ‘n’ Grab, but more importantly, her attitude toward Adam has always been one of amused curiosity – they circle each other with ‘takes one to know one’ wariness, and an air of excitement and a certain chemistry surrounds their battle of wits and one-upmanship – Phyllis has always been up for it.” Find out what else Candace thought in The Young and the Restless Weekly Blog.
