Tyler, I know there wasn't plot movement and I could have definitely done without the Diner mess. Vienna needs to go like yesterday.
What wooed me today was the moments. This to me is what soaps are all about. Some of the things I remember through the years about soaps are necessarily full stories but moments or just self-contained parts of episodes. They are what is special to me over time.
I just loved the Carly and Jack stuff today. It was so real and so special. I am not the biggest Jack/Carly fan, but today I really got what is special about them.
I was glad to see and forgot to say it too a little spark of friendship and remembrance between Dusty and Lily what they once meant to one another. Here was her first love, and it was just a nice thing to see them relate to one another and talk a little about the past. It would have been 100% times better if it had been Brian Bloom back as Dusty, but it was still so special to me.
I don't know there doesn't have to always be movement for me to enjoy an episode. I guess I am strange that way. And I don't have to have complete action either. I am strange that way too.
It was just a nice episode that helped to bond characters and that is what makes me care for them. And it is what is so sadly missing from so many soaps today.
I enjoyed the Carjack stuff too now that I really think about it. I loved how Carly knew exactly how things would work and even though Jack tried to deny it, we could see deep down that he knew it wasn't over with her and he had to constantly reassure himself that he's in love with Katie. :lol:
Vienna....ugh. I was over her the second I started seeing her as an Oakdale presence. I don't think I've heard her speak more than twenty words because I FF her scenes so much.
