Ok. As much praising of the breakdowns as I was, the jump from Rafe's loft to Gabi's room with only 1 scene in between was just really bad editing/breakdown. You simply can NEVER have a character completely change settings within the span of a single act unless the two sets are logically within an understood short distance. Longer distances can only be done between acts with a commercial in between because we can accept that passage of time much easier. Soap Writing Mechanics 101, imo.
I agree, that was annoying. Could have waited until the end of that act. Especially since Rafe said he was going to talk to someone on Will's side who isn't crazy. That was good enough to go to commercial with, IMO. How far is HTS from the Brady Pub though? I always feel like its right around the corner because for so long those were the only sets we ever saw.

Parker drinks cherry juice? Um.... EWWWWW.

Of course, since he's clearly 25, maybe it's just to mix into his Manhattans. :shrug:

Today's show was directed by Steven Williford from a script by THE QUEEN Melissa Salmons (her 2nd script in a row).

Hope, honey, Will's a Horton, too. It's even his last name in case you forget (as you so frequently do). I wish they'd address this more because it's a glaring flaw in this whole storyline.

If Jennifer was so worried about Dan getting that message, wouldn't she just have apologized again when she saw him in person? I'm so, so, so sorry might not translate so well on paper!

God help me I enjoyed Rafe for an entire episode. Lauren Koslow worked some magic. But it didn't rub off in his scenes with Gabi (which I have never, ever enjoyed in the history of the two characters) so there's a change happening.

Jennifer/Daniel hallway scenes were embarrassing and horribly acted. They couldn't convey emotions through their acting so she awkwardly rubbed his face before leaving. Okay.

Hope is being written as a horrible person, IMO. I wanted to throw something through my TV. "The Hortons will stand behind you." in the battle between Nick and Will? Um, someone brush her up on who she is related to, please. I know its the writers fault before someone starts defending KA. But it still sucks.

I'm looking forward to the scenes where Brady opens up to Kristen about why he doesn't want to marry her. Gives Eric Martsolf another chance to win me over. Everyone is surprising me lately on this show from the writers to the actors so there's a chance! Maybe.

I'm glad to see Lucas, Stefano, and Kayla more. They aren't doing anything overly important, but at least they're being used. The more we see them the more there's a chance they will do something relevant. Lucas is obviously on his way up because he's about to be involved in two different storylines. I hate that Kayla and Hope are just sounding boards for everyone else right now. Hoping their time will come.

My highlights today : Stefano is coming home! Rafe and Kate work well together and GG and LK actually have some awkward chemistry together. I want more. Enjoyed Chloe today.

Lowlights : Bristen was pretty dull, but there will probably be some good movement tomorrow. Thank god. Dannifer continues to bore me to death.

Holy crap! Really? Jen-Jen is that insecure when she doesn't hear from her boyfriend for a few hours? I can't believe TPTB think this is a healthy, normal relationship. But then what Jennifer did by deliberately lying to Chloe isn't healthy or normal, either. Yes, Chloe is scheming to break up Dannifer, but the bottom line is Daniel wanted the mother of his child to have the correct contact info and Jennifer made sure she got the wrong info. That's all on her. In trying to come between Daniel and Chloe, Jennifer ended up coming between Daniel and Parker--and that's a big no-no when it comes to dating someone with kids from a previous relationship. As a mother herself, Jennifer should have known better: she's coming across as jealous of a two-year-old.

During the snoozefest that was Dannifer 1.0, she gushed about how great it was that despite being a big, important surgeon, Daniel always put her first--unlike Jack. :rolleyes: But now Parker and Chloe are in the picture, so guess who's not #1 anymore, and handling it atrociously?

What I loved most about Don/Marlena was that they became sort of best friends after their divorce. So I'd love for him to return purely as a friend to Marlena.

I really enjoyed the Kate and Rafe scenes today ... like the awkwardness between them, the laughter, the talk ... didn't even mind them having sex again. I don't know where they're going with this but I did enjoy their scenes yesterday and today.

Nick is a genius. He's lining everything up in a row. Love how he gets the information he needs from everyone while making it sound like he's just having a normal conversation about nothing important. It won't be long and he'll have Gabi convinced that the only way she can keep her baby is by going along with his schemes.

Chloe - Jen is right about one thing - you are not subtle at all! Give it a rest already!
