reasons to be giddy
Dootdootdoot. Dootdoot! Doot! Dootdoot. Doot! Doot! That's the sound of me doing my Ted King happy dance, in case you were wondering. Considering it was 6 degrees when I left the house this morning, the fact that I am now all warm and gooey after watching One Life to Live, of all things, well... it's saying something. Tomas was so cute running around all frantically, so excited to see Blair, so excited to learn she's single, so excited about his wine (to this I can relate)!
I'd say Chem Test: A+. Not that I'm shocked.
While I adored those scenes and feel like whatever this whole Tomas/Blair thing is definitely holds a lot of promise, it seems strange that basically the entire viewing audience noticed that the painting was from Blair and Todd’s wedding in the 90s, but Blair was so shocked to learn it. Right?
Meanwhile, Clint was hilarious immediately being onto Inez and the genius "wearing a wire" plan.
Inez was less hilarious being generic and emotionless again. After Clint pointed out that he's still in control, she looked at him and said "Whyareyoudoingthistome" in the flattest manner in the history of flat.
There's her big "my life's destroyed!" facial expression. I AM MOVED TO TEARS. THE POOR, POOR DEAR.
I'm pissed, of course, that Bo didn't pressing any charges for her drugging him, but thankfully he at least finally told her to steer clear of him and that he didn't want to hear her apologies.
Nora, on the other hand, laid down some law today with Clint.
Nora: I had an opportunity to tell Viki. But I didn’t want to hurt her like that. Because she respects you and she loves you. They all do. How could I possibly tell them that you have been plotting against your own brother and threating Inez and having me kidnapped and tortured and that you killed Eddie Ford? How could I tell them that? That would just devastate them. Your sons, your daughters, your grandchildren, your nephew, they all look up to you. They all love you. So, no, I wasn’t going to be the one to take that away from them. I’m going to let you do that all by yourself. You know, it’s funny, I always remember you talking about protecting the family the way Asa did. Well, from now on, Bo and I will be protecting the family, we’ll be doing that, we’ll protect Asa’s family. From you.
So Shaun and Theo get a scene and it’s…. to talk about Destiny’s and Darren’s breakup?
Lame. Time to introduce Theo to some ladies. And re-introduce Shaun to some ladies (and by the way, he still has chemistry with Tea!).
And Matthew and Destiny kissed and, just, yikes. It started fine and then turned into one of those awkward, no-movement-at-all teen kisses.
Uncomfortable. Having had a lot of experience directing teens in stage kisses, I can tell you that it's not easy. I am not unsympathetic. But c'mon. Just watch some footage and recreate!
Layla and Cris broke up, of course. Her speech was a rather torturous cliché. I mean seriously? "Je ne sais quoi?" Anyway, even though Layla did cheat on Cris, I’m glad the breakup was ultimately so that she could put her own dreams and career first.
Oh and James and Todd appear to have HAD it with Starr. She’s still talking on the phone to her boyfriend and father of her child and he went to prison like seven whole weeks ago! GAH! She’s so stubborn!
Destiny (making) out!
