Okay, so I'm biased, but I have to give credit where its due. Deidre Hall was on FIRE yesterday. She tore up that shit until there was nothing left to tear. She was amazing. If she actually submitted, and maybe got a few more chances like this (as in, writing that actually gives her words to say and scenes that don't end after 10 seconds), she'd have a really strong Emmy reel next year that could give her a long overdue win.|
She played every beat perfectly. She was angry, she was sad, she was mad, then she was broken hearted. She didn't overdo it, she didn't underplay it, it was just perfectly done. Reminded me of why I became a fan in the first place. Because when she gets the chance, there's nobody better on soaps, IMO.
As for Drake... I just feel so bad for him that I can't really be mad that she was pretty much doing it alone. But I can imagine that John is trying to break through whatever mindgames Stefano has played with him that made him do this in the first place, and it makes it watchable. He looked so sad and so confused. It's sad when I want one of my characters, half of my all-time favorite any-medium couple to go off-screen... because that decreases the possibility of being destroyed.
