Attack of the Killer Twins
The pregnant twins had tons of scenes together today! I love me some Buchanan twins, especially when one of them is as big as a house. How is she not on maternity leave yet? Or did they pre-tape these scenes?
And speaking of pregnant twins and the people who want their blood, Marty has really gone off the deep end. Am I the only one finding this hilarious? She seems far more focused on Natalie than on anything having to do with her menace-to-society son Cole, and she keeps popping up in the screen to make snide comments about her to John, who (prince that he is) is eating up every second of it and not spending one second defending his girlfriend but is in fact just fueling Marty's crazypants fire (of course, starting the other day when he told her basically that he would've happily lied for Cole if it weren't for that Natalie!).
"Hey John, where's your little girlfriend and her party hat? Hey John, why isn't she here poking at Cole's open wound? Hey John, does your girlfriend ever wake up in the middle of the night beaming after having dreams about destroying my world? Hey John, remember that kid I have who was born a girl and got a sex change and basically morphed into a young man with the personality of my two-time rapist? I don't really remember his name, but I do remember who did something bad to him and that was Natalie Natalie NATALIE!" (I'm pretty sure that's basically what she said, right?) And all in the middle of the sentencing hearing for her homicidal son! Marty is nothing if not a multi-tasker! (Though in all sincerity, I'm thrilled to see Susan Haskell with some actual material even though it basically amounts to a full run under the Ross Rayburn Bus O' Character Destruction.)
And Cole, of course, handled the sentencing hearing the way he handles generally everything -- glaring and rolling his eyes.
Oh how I'll miss what he's become. Now, since they're letting him stroll around town to say his goodbyes, I guess we have yet to see if he'll actually serve his ten years or go on the run or something. My favorite part of the "trial" (I can't believe they even called it that) was the argument that Eli would've gotten the death penalty had he lived, so the court should show leniency toward Cole. Ha! "Hey look, he saved the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania craploads of money as well as a perfectly good death row cell for years to come!"
And then of course the best part of the episode was Cole, about to head off to a decade in the slammer, "breaking up" with Starr. Oh, he's so noble!
Adrianna made an appearance today!
Much to Gigi's dismay, of course.
You know, I gotta say that I was never a very big fan of Miss Adrianna Cramer, but I don't know what it is about these recent visits of hers. Is it something rubbing off on Melissa Fumero during her time on Gossip Girl? There's something a lot lighter but also more magnetic in her presence, and I for one am loving it. Maybe it's just that I like seeing Gigi get tortured just a bit? Does that make me a bad person?
Also, some potentially amazing casting news. Working with Blair? I like. What do you guys think??
