I...I Can't Even Think Of A Pithy Joke About Predictability
Jason: It would help to know what Theo is trying to accomplish. Taking Brenda, blowing up the limo...it's almost like you're his target, not Brenda.
Sonny: You're right. This all started with Theo avenging his son. He's messing with me. He wants a war? I sure as hell will give him one.
I...am confused. Like, my confusion is at the same level as my marked disinterest.
1. WUT? And also, WHY?
2. Must everything on this show be about Sonny? Seriously? Couldn't this have just been a Brenda story with marginal Sonny involvement?
3. Is it too much to ask for that this war actually has, you know, consequences for Sonny? It probably is, right? But then what is the point of dealing with an evil criminal mastermind for months if he's not even savvy enough to take out Sonny?!
4. Not that I'm advocating even MORE screentime for Dante, but wouldn't this make way more sense if DANTE was Theo's other target, since he was actually involved in covering up Alexander's murder?
5. I obviously just spent more time writing this brief post than the writers have spent writing this entire storyline. The question is, how much more time? Double the time? Triple the time? Are they even writing, or just having a helper monkey or robot photocopy old scripts for them?
