I Am Overdosing on Awesome
Ohmigod, you guys. OHMIGOD, YOU GUYS.
There are days when I am watching Days and seriously consider the idea that I must have hallucinated the entire episode because what happens is SO BIZARRE and yet SO BRILLIANT that it can't possibly be real and must instead be something that I dreamed one night after taking cold medicine. Except it's not, it actually happened. It's real and it's spectacular!
Today was one of those days.
It's getting to the point where I am going to have to start watching the show with a paper bag handy at all times because the pure amazingness is making me hyperventilate.
First, there was E.J.'s horrific yet hilarious comment about Coma John.
Then, there was TONY ON A HORSE.
And now we learn that Lexie spent her absence from the show turning into Nell and also a ninja.
I simultaneously wondered "WTF?!?!", asked myself why I still watch this show, penned Hogan Sheffer a love note for writing this scene and laughed so hard that I actually made myself snort.
She was HISSING. And she tried to choke Hope! While HISSING.
And then Julie stepped in to give the righteous smackdown.
"Don't even try it!"
If you ever meet me and I'm silent for a little while, it's just because I'm replaying that scene in my head.
I seriously didn't know what to do with myself when the episode ended. I had no idea what to think. I still don't. Why was she hissing, only to stop when she recognized Hope? Why was she wearing a ski mask when she was living underground for months? Why am I not at all bothered by the fact that Hope's sister is married to her father? Why can't Julie go around beating down random characters? Why did anyone for one second entertain the notion that Lexie could be right and Bo could really be dead? How soon we all forget the days when Lexie declared an entire town's worth of people dead. Why did Hope's look of disgust when Doug suggested that they call Roman make me laugh for a full ten minutes? Okay, the last one is obvious. But overall, it's the type of episode best summed up with random punctuation !!!!!!!??????!!!!!!<3333???!!!!
And on top of that, Belle showed a personality and bordered on awesome. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE WORLD?! It's like up is down and left is right.
