I've Lost That Loving Feeling
Due, perhaps, to her adorable friendship with Maxie, or the fact that she works best as a singleton and has been single until her promising romance with Dominante, or Julie Marie Berman substantially toning down the smug face, I found myself liking Lulu again in recent months for the first time in YEARS.
And then Lulu found out Dominante's two secrets and I was reminded why the words I most often associate with the character are "vile", "shrieking", "shrew", "smug", "bratty", and "pout": because HOLY HELL, this girl is a judgmental asshole with a superiority complex and no moral compass.
Lulu: Now you've gone from a warning to overkill, because even if I did believe that Sonny would kill you, there is no way under any circumstances that he would ever hurt Olivia.
Yes, because there are no cases on record of Sonny ever lashing out and physically or emotionally hurting a woman who he felt betrayed him, except for that one case known as "Every relationship Sonny has ever had".
Lulu: Sonny trusts Dominic Pirelli. He depends on you. You guard his children. In Sonny's book, that is a huge compliment. But officer Dante Falconeri is betraying him. You are lying to his face. You are gathering evidence from his house that could put him in prison. If I know all of this and I don't warn him, then I'm betraying him as much as you are.
Is she for real?
Lulu: But the system can work both ways. And I was brought up not to trust it. And Sonny has done a lot of good for Port Charles. He bought a whole wing of the hospital for AIDS patients to be treated with or without insurance. He's donated millions of dollars to the head trauma unit that Carly started. He's done a lot of good for a lot of people over the years.
To recap: criticism of Sonny is not allowed, under any circumstances, because he helped take care of Stone and supports AIDS patients. And because he donated money to the head trauma unit started in honor OF HIS OWN SON? I'm not even going to mention the fact that his son had head trauma because he was shot in the head during a botched hit on Sonny's life, but, really, we're awarding prizes for Sonny donating money to his child's foundation?
Lulu: Why did you bring me here? Are you trying to impress me with how brave you are? Because Sonny's office is right there. I could walk right in and tell him the truth, and then you wouldn't make it out of here.
Lulu: Really? 'Cause if you could lie to Sonny and Morgan and all the other people in the organization, people who put their lives on the line for you, who depend on you to keep them safe, why should I believe a word out of your mouth?
I certainly don't want this show to become MORE violent, so I won't say anything like, "Is there any reason why Lulu can't be used in a mobster's target practice?" I will just glare angrily at my TV and curse the writers, which is pretty much what I do after every episode of GH anyway, but at least this time I have a specific reason for the glaring.
