'Cause I am. A total soap nerd. Not that there were ever any illusions that I was cool or together or anything. (Though let's face it, there's only one soap of my many that ever makes me actually do happy dances.)
After the heartbreaking, heart-filling, weepily-wonderful of Wednesday's episode, I expected a major crash and a decent-but-no-biggie kind of follow-up episode. I was wrong! So much to love!
Téa and Tina, first of all. How cute was this? Téa all snuggly and sleepy, just waking up with her big giant teddy bear! Tina was bringing by flyers for her missing dog (c'mon, Princess David Vickers, you're out there somewhere!) and Téa was downright adorable about it. She actually looked really upset for Tina that she'd lost her dog (as well she should be)! And Tina was all heart in these scenes, the first time we've really seen that since she's been back -- and I'm thankful for it. Sure, Tina's a selfish mess, but she's also got a big old heart and it was good to see it again, and especially good to see someone else responding to it in a positive manner.
And Tina pointed out that they're sisters-in-law and that she's there for Téa if she needs her. And they hugged! I am loving the idea of these two as friends. I do enjoy the friendship between Téa and Blair but, realistically, with Todd back and Victor out of the picture? We've got some rough roads ahead. Speaking of which, Tina mentioned that Téa seems to be taking care of everyone else and wondered who's taking care of Téa. I think we all know the answer to that!
