Wow, Sheridan is such a bitch. Holy crap the way she treated Pretty today was appalling. I'm more convinced than ever it's Beth. I don't buy NBC's claim Beth and Marty are dead. I don't buy it for a second.
Love Tabitha, Edna and Norma torturing Spike. It's so deserved.
LMAO at Kay and her witchcraft.
Looks like Jessica's getting arrested ... It was so random today even though I knew it was coming.
I have to admit I kinda liked Luis and Fancy today.
Loved Ethan/Gwen/Theresa too.
Passions is finally back on track and I'm loving it.
Let's just get something out of the way right now: I liked the Prency scenes just like a bunch of you; the flashbacks helped us understand their relationship more. HOWEVER. Think about it another way, and you'll see why these scenes were very poorly executed. The girls SHOULD HAVE BEEN cast with younger players for these dream sequences. Well, the flashback ones. After all, they may pass for two years ago or three or even four years ago (and that's really pushing it)... BUT EIGHT YEARS AGO?! (Remember, the show is that old and Prency weren't even on the show back then.) To say nothing of the show's timeline. I forget how long Fancy and Pretty had been away from the mansion. The point is, THOSE flashbacks did NOT gel with the show's timeline (at least, for eight years). And I'd bet that even though I forgot the official timeline, those scenes didn't gel with it either.
So... REALITY CHECK, "Pash"!
Ha. You are forgetting how Passions operates. Remember the Eve & Julian, Alistair & Katherine, Martin & Pilar, etc. flashbacks to 30 years ago? These older actors played 20-somethings, and I found those scenes much bigger stretch of imagination than what we saw today.
Usually with Passions, once the flashbacks involve the characters being at least older teenagers and older, they use the current actors.
This Fancy-Pretty thing had to have happened at least 8-10 years ago. The girls would have been anywhere from 15-19.
Only the first one was a flashback. The second one in the pool was Fancy's dream, so the age made sense there.
