I like these.|
Not a whole lot to go on but that is a good thing, especially since we got more details with the SOD previews.
I'm not shocked about Brady. He wants no part of the violence and I think his feelings for Nicole will be in play. As for Victor tossing him out, it's in character and it will be interesting to see since he's never done that to Brady, who he has always seem to favor more at times over Philip.
The feud stuff sounds very good but it sounded good in the previews. I love the Caroline/Stephanie spoiler for a number of reasons. First, it brings up history. Second, it makes me feel better about the proposal because now I know there is no way they will rush these two to the altar. It sounds like the proposal comes before she gets kidnapped and I think the kidnapping will force her to reflect on things and will cause some tension. It's also nice to see Caroline involved with Stephanie. We were cheated out of so many good scenes with them because she was with Max and they were trying to ignore the family connection. This is good to see IMO, especially with Steve and Kayla gone. I want them to start using Bo, Hope, and Caroline as confidantes for her.
Glad Lucas begins to remember bits and pieces. I think they are building this up to a June reveal (Wimbledon, maybe?) and that they may string the baby switch along even longer, which is fine by me. I thought it may be the baby switch that is revealed but given how the feud has been intersected with that story, I think they can play that a little longer.
The Mia stuff is just more buildup. Shocked that they didn't even toss a blurb about Nicole in these previews since her and her story were so big in the SOD previews but these are just that...blurbs. I think that is why there are no direct quotes, unlike when Ken Corday gave them in SOD. That and the fact that I've felt all along that Dena is not really the HW anymore. I think she is just HW in name only and is just the third wheel while Tomlin and Whitesell control the story of the show. I suspect that is why there are no direct quotes and we simply have blurbs from 'Dena Higley and the writing team." Normally, a show does not hide their HW and at least will distinguish their position but that has not happened here and has not happened in a long time. Even in the Fall and 2009 previews for SOW, we had a similar situation here. She had a big interview in April 2008 when she was officially confirmed as HW coming out of the strike. Then, she gave out previews during the blackout story in July 2008 and I think she did another interview that had copy and pasted quotes from her later in summer. Otherwise, we've had nothing else. She hasn't even blogged since Fall when Tomlin and Whitesell came on board.
