This Show Has Hit The Motherlode
I have not felt compelled to ask this question after the end of a soap Friday in...a really long time but here goes: IS IT MONDAY YET?
How about now? Is it? Because I kind of can't wait.
Kay: Well, take a look. You do not match the woman who was buried in my grave, and you do not match me.
Jill: That's not possible.
Kay: You refuse to see what's been staring you in the face all along. Tests don't lie, Jill. Three tests all telling you the same thing. Deny it if you want for the rest of your life, but you are not my daughter.
I'm not going to lie: even though I knew this twist was coming, I still made a sound that was part "Eeeee!!!!", part giggle and part gasp. I am SO excited by this, which I know is kind of hypocritical, since I am usually vehemently anti-history rewrite, but since this is a rewrite of a rewrite, I feel like there could be a dispensation of some sort.
This is awesome for several reasons:
- It gives the awesome Jeanne Cooper something different, after months (months that felt like years, mind you) of the mistaken identity saga
- It gives the awesome Jess Walton something to do besides sneer at random people and be a day player (and how much better does her hair look than it did last week?!)
- It erases the lame twist that made Katherine and Jill mother and daughter in the first place, which came out of nowhere, was stupid and defanged both of them, which leads nicely to...
- Jill and Katherine. Enemies. At each other's throats. I am already kvelling.
DISCLAIMER: I reserve the right to pretend that I never wrote the above if it turns out that Katherine's daughter is actually Gloria, because I'd have lived the rest of my days with Kay and Jill being boring, background mother/daughter if it meant that Gloria was not inserted into yet another story in an effort to one up the rest of Genoa City.
