WINNER OF THE WEEK: I’m not a fan of Chad by any stretch, but I like the character a little better after he stood up to Nicole and EJ about trying to get his kid back. Apparently, we’re watching his Brady backbone form right before our eyes if the rumor is true that he’s Bo and Carly’s long lost love child. I still don’t know how he thinks he can raise a kid by himself though when he can’t even make good grades in school. I’d prefer to see him recast though. I really hate even giving him this title this week, but there really were no other winners.
LOSER(S) OF THE WEEK: Bo and Hope are equal losers. I still remember Bo in 1991 saying to himself that he loved Carly more deeply than Hope before he “married” Carly in Matzalan. And now he’s babbling away to Justin that no relationship of his was complete without the love of his life, Fancy Face. Why does he always have to pit these women in a competition to justify these relationships and proclaim which one he loves more? And then you have independent feisty Hope running to Daddy and Julie in her time of trouble, not calling Bo, dredging up every bad BOPE moment she can think of. It’s ridiculous how the writers are slanting this relationship so much in Bo’s favor in a transparent attempt to make the BARLY love affair to come more tolerable. Just too contrived and out-of-character for me.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: The scene where Chad confronted EJ that Sydney was his…followed by Nicole discovering this…followed by the EJAMI scene…was all soapy goodness.
PERFORMER OF THE WEEK: Got to give it to James Scott again.
ZINGER OF THE WEEK: Victor to Chloe when he interrupts a Danloe scrump session with Chloe half dressed - “Well, Chloe, why am I not surprised to see you looking like you always do?”
WORST WRITING OF THE WEEK: I love seeing Peter Reckell and John Aniston in scenes together and the whole Bo/Victor dynamic…but someone fire the scriptwriter. First, Victor shows Bo the newspaper with Lawrence’s picture and then he grills and lectures Bo not to run after Carly when Bo showed no indication at all that he was going to do so. It made no sense. Couldn’t the writers have come up with some way to get this exposition and history out without making this scene so sloppy?
RANDOM THOUGHT OF THE WEEK: As I remember Carly from the 1990s pre-Reilly, I also recalled what a perfect Superwoman Saint Doctor she was. And she’s at it again. So for fun, I’m keeping a list of all of her annoying good deeds.
Good Deed of Saint Carly Manning the Martyr #1: Saving Rafe from drowning, honoring her Hippocratic Oath, even while she’s running for her life after slicing up her hubby.
MOST PREDICTABLE MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I knew that Rafe would somehow save Carly from getting shot, even though he was half dead from drowning.
