Sami is without a doubt the nosiest person in the world. Like I wouldn't be shocked if she has every phone in town tapped and a team of people listening in to tell her if they hear anything interesting.
Seriously. She should be like...Salem's Gossip Girl. No one knows it's her and she's stirring up all kinds of crap.

Not gonna lie. Aside from the Gabi/Nick/Will meh-ness, I really enjoyed this episode. A lot. Wish we could get more of these. Loved Sami's temper tantrum and total obnoxiousness and how everything is about her. Eric was great handling her. Greg Vaughan is a great addition.

The Brady/John/Kristen/Marlena drama is fantastic stuff. LOVING Kristen so much. Brady is being so laughable right now. He really needs to start thinking with his actual brain and not the one in his pants, which seems to be his M.O.

Judi Evans was great in that bone she was thrown. Love her. She is so underused. Why can't Adrienne and Justin be leading storyline instead of Jennifer and Daniel? However, I kinda want Wally on GH as Ned .... lol.

Good episode.

Has anyone ever seen Another Cinderella Story? The one with Selena Gomez. Anyway, one of the "stepsisters" has some serious crazy eyes, and AS's eyes remind me of them. Not normally. Just with the current hair and make-up. I guess it's the hair and make-up. She doesn't usually have crazy eyes...
Are you talking about that sister who looks like and could well be Yvonne Zima? Or the other one?

No, that's the one with Lizzie McGuire. And that is Yvonne Zima.

You mean the chick from Ginger Snaps? Um, Emily Perkins, I believe.

Not to mention it shows a lack of trust for her husband, which IMO, is very out of character for Marlena. Even if John did believe that Kristen had changed, Marlena is still the only woman in his heart.
I'd agree with that IF Kristen hadn't already raped John. If she really wanted to, she'd just do it again.

Please more Judi Evans. She is the best actress on the show hands down. I loved the Adrienne scenes with Sonny and then Adrienne with Kate.

So glad this baby stuff secret stuff is just about coming out. I need it to end because it is all so repetitive. Even know I hate Nick, I love Blake. He's such a good actor.

Sami's lipstick was so distracting. It was way too dark.

Awe Brady Black your an idiot.
An idiot yes, .. but a lovable idiot.

I wish EJ would stop being an idiot by Sami (so many years now.. and run over a guy like Rafe). At least Brady's idioticy is fresh and new thanks to Kristen.

Brady is an idiot (though has good chemistry with Kristen)

John and Marlena being written out of character, instead of the soulmates they are who (BACK EACH OTHER UP). I miss MarDar. No way in hell would John move out on Marlena, or not believe her, and no way would Marlena not trust him. Someone needs to read the history on who this couple is. Cuz they are botching it.

Yes, remember last year when John was going to jail and he was trying to convince Marlena to give up on him? But she refused to do that and said she'd stand by him no matter what. What a difference a year (and a writing regime change) can make. :shame:

I'm all for having conflict for a married couple -- and not have them sitting around being happy all the time. But there were lots of ways the show could have gone with this that would have had John and Marlena confronting an obstacle together -- or at least not having John come across as such a dolt.

I rather enjoyed Drake today. I find I still enjoy him when he's not in scenes with Marlena looking annoyed at her existence.

This is a good conversation with Adrienne/Sonny. I wish Freddie would wake up to participate in it, but this is a good example, IMO, of a well done scene despite the fact that all participants aren't particularly good.


This is what I think is so fascinating about this show. Two people can watch it and draw completely opposite opinions. I continue to think Drake is by far the worst actor on the show and today didn't do anything to change my mind. As for Freddie, I still think he's one of the better actors on the show and actually gives a damn about his character and scenes. His brief scenes today with Judi only strengthened my opinion as I thought those mother and son scenes were better than the Sami and Will scenes. Different strokes I suppose.

Well, don't get me wrong. I'm not planning to give the guy any awards. But I didn't think he was bad. I have thought he was pretty bad the last several weeks, though.

Lately, I just find Freddie snoozeworthy. It's not so much that he's bad; he's just not present. But rewind several months, and I thought he was just great.

But no worries. I think most things are better than Sami and Will scenes, lmao.

^^If I were TPTB at NBC, I would make any renewal contingent upon that very thing. But...

The fact that Corday can blithely assert that they're proceeding full steam ahead with the status quo (triangles, Dannifer, etc) -- especially in light of the turnaround at GH -- is as if he has his head buried in the sand. Can they all really be satisfied with the ratings they're pulling in? TomSell have set record lows a few times in the last few months, which means they were lower than MarDar, who were setting record lows themselves.

Unless he's blowing smoke, I really don't get it. Was Corday spewing this kind of junk right before Higley et al were fired?

Corday's pretty much always spewing this stuff.

I enjoyed today's show quite a lot...

Thought that Sami was fantastic bursting in twice... it was so Sami... I also enjoyed her conv with Will...

I enjoyed Will & Kate's conv as well. It's nice to see the interaction between the two... I love how Will stands up for Nick.. I just wish that Nick will show some respect to Will.

I also enjoyed Adrienne & Will as well as Adrienne & Kate scenes. It was nice and refreshing.

Hope/Marlena was nice too. Kinda like that Hope is there for Marlena though I am not a big Marlena fan.

I hate the fact that Kristen is going to create problem between Brady and John though I enjoyed the scenes between the father and son. Not a big fan of Kristen's hair today though...

Overall I thought it was a nice episode. It was so much better without Dannifer.

I agree. I didn't FF a single scene today, which seldom happens. I'd call that a win for the show.
