Victor's an idiot for leaving his search history intact. Does he WANT to get caught?

Loved the cutting of the Natalie/Vicki phone call.

This week was not so entertaining.

Todd/Victor feud falls flat because Victor is not even there to spice things up. And the focus on "Victor" and the tattoo on the dead body doesn't work either because we all know he is not dead. So even exploring comes up as lazy writing.

I like that Viki is having a crisis with running The Banner in the digital age. That is timely and relates to what is happening in the newspaper industry all around. But the crisis does not feel real enough. To make the idea of Vicki having to lay long-time staff members off that would cause such a conundrum, The Banner would have to be in state where she is going to have to declare bankruptcy on a principle loan from the past that kept the news organization afloat during the 2008 recession.

Something is needed though to make me connect more with it.

When it comes to Dani and Matthew it is as if the writers have clearly decided to alienate these two characters from the rest of the cast. Especially their parents and family members, just to try and push that they want the audience to view them as a future couple. I might need to add that this show started with Dani overdosing on drugs and since then she has not even taken another hit? This from a young woman who was to supposedly have fallen off the track due to her mother's distance from her and the loss of her dad. It appears to me from a writing and storytelling standpoint that Dani should be struggling more with drugs and having Matthew trying to save her as the source of what would draw them together. She should be a walking-talking bitch of an addict who goes through all the stages of addiction and would lead to an intervention of sorts. That is how this story should be told.

The tattoo on the dead body belongs to the guy who was killed on the first episode. The victim may be connected to whoever had Victor since they both have the same tattoo. We were never meant to think that the dead guy was Victor.

Clint wants Matthew to be a father to Drew, but wants John to stay out of Liam life. :what:
D/J/M/D, not interested in baby mama/daddy drama.

I appreciated seeing a promo for the UK soap Coronation Street embedded into today's commercials for OLTL that airs exclusively in the US on Hulu.

Coronation Street at also airs on Hulu.
On my stream, it comes on right after OLTL (or is it Days?) One or the other.

I'm liking Matthew and Dani against my better judgment. I'm pulling for Destiny to win her man, somehow.

I can't wait until Bo finds out what Clint did to John in regards to Liam, I hope he puts him in place.
The Shelter should be called a brothel because more sex in taking place than drinking.

That 3 week recap just came on and I never noticed until now that the first episode opened with the 80s theme as the background music during the Viki scene.

Clint got a restraining from the court to prevent John from seeing Liam.(Episode happened on GH). He wants to keep John out of Liam life for good, even though John wants to see Liam. But he gets mad a Matthew because he does not want to be a father to Drew. That the hypocrisy of Clint.

I would argue that the canon of events transpiring on GH is tenuous at best.
