Bo and Nora, after... 11 years? 12 years? Finally got re-married! And it was adorable.
I am only a viewer of ABC shows, so I can't speak for others, but one of the things I've always thought One Life to Live does better over the others is the comedic or dramatic "bits," the tiny moments of less-than-a-second detail. The show is generally much sloppier than, say, General Hospital, but the "slicker" shows don't usually have what they'd consider throw-away details that really contribute to the overall texture. The little fist-bump between Natalie and Brody while agreeing to keep their tryst between them. Jessica's and Natalie's facial expressions in the background while David was explaining his status as ordained minister. David's obsession with dancing with Viki at the reception. Eli's little chivalrous gesture to Blair after the "gun situation" settled at the beginning of the ceremony. Shaun's little death glares to Darrin. I'll give credit where it's due and this show excels at nuance. Follow-through? Logic? Not so much. But nuance they've got.
Now, down to business. How does this woman keep getting hotter?
It's ridiculous. And someone in town has certainly noticed!
What I wouldn't give to have a man look at me like that, just once. I swoon! And how nice of them to remember that Blair and Eli are actually a new and exciting couple on this show.
And we got a Kim mention!
While a million other couples are in the middle of reuniting, Clint reunited with his gun. But this time it was to pay David back for running his wife Kim out of town -- they remembered! He misses Kim! He's not the only one.
Meanwhile, Dani turned out to be a horrible little bitch. I'm all for getting yourself out of a relationship you're not into, but there are about a million choices of when to break such news. In the church where your boyfriend's parents just got married when he's supposed to be at the reception giving the best man speech? Maybe it would've been worse if she'd dumped him in the middle of the ceremony.
Sad Matthew is not okay.
Also at the reception, Natalie and Brody had a private conversation in public that went something like, "We should talk about the other night." "You mean the other night when we had all the sex?" "Yes, exactly, I'm talking about that time a few nights ago when we got drunk and slept together. I don't want anyone to know." "True, we wouldn't want anyone to find out about the drunken one-night stand we just had." "So we've decided? We're not going to tell anyone THAT WE HAD SEX?" "YES, LET'S JUST KEEP MUM ABOUT ALL THE MEANINGLESS HOT SEX WE HAD!"
Or at least that's what I heard.
While Matthew was down the street getting his heart broken, Rex had to stand in and give the best man speech. What I heard was, "I just found out my parents aren't who I thought they were. So my life is bad. Then I went searching for my biological parents because it's terrible that I don't know who I am. People should know who they are and know who their biological parents are, so it's totally no fair that I don't. Have I mentioned myself and my predicament? I've been going through a tough time. Oh yeah, congrats Bo, I wish you were my dad!"
Again, that's just what I heard.
In other news, all the fellas gave the wedding party gals adorable looks walking down the aisle, Kelly continues to be completely uninteresting in scenes with anyone other than Shaun, Destiny gets cooler and cooler and more like the Llanview Greek Chorus every day, and Viki played the Clint Whisperer again today. And ultimately? The wedding was fantastic and just what Bo and Nora deserved -- a little conflict, a little humor, a little schmaltz, and a lot of dancing.
By the way, that's quite a set of gams on Hillary B. Smith these days!
Mazel Tov, Bo and Nora. Destiny out!
