Breaking Down the Lines
Let's explore some of Friday's dialogue, shall we?
Upon hearing Carly refer to Sonny by his first name...
Todd: Sunny? Like with a "u"?
Ah, it's good to have Todd and his snark back in my life.
Sonny, while trying to convince Dante to take the heat off him and find another suspect...
Sonny: You are a great investigator.
No one at the PCPD has been a "great investigator" since the 80s, Sonny. As evidenced by your living in the free world.
Various and sundry folks had lines about how deeply wrong it was for anyone to point the finger at Sonny for a crime and how totally and super unfair it is that everyone always assumes he's guilty. It never fails to amuse me that the people who are the most insufferably righteous about this topic are ones who have first-hand knowledge that, in fact, were charges ever pressed against Sonny for the crimes he actually has committed he'd likely get about 86 consecutive life sentences.
Starr said a lot on Friday as well, most of it incredibly annoying. I imagine I, too, would revert to 13-year-old brattiness (or likely much worse) if my boyfriend and child died in one fell swoop, so I'll let her off the hook for now. However, if the episode was an indication that they're going to take Starr down a "darker" path, as Blair is worried, I pray that it doesn't manifest itself by faces like this:
'Cause that'll irk me no end. So Blair should work overtime to prevent the darkness, and she knows from darkness. (Really, remember during one of her crazy-times episodes ages ago and she was in some sort of a fugue state and just sat their staring into space whispering, "Darrrkkknnesss"? I searched for a clip but had no luck. It was hilarious, though. A friend and I have had a running joke about it for years now. Any of y'all remember this? I'm trying to pin down a year and story arc so I can try to find a clip.)
Oh yeah, and Steve said that he killed someone. Yawn. I mean oh my gah I can't wait to find out what happened!!! Really, the only reason this storyline interests me at all is that it'll somehow rid us of Dr. Maggie "People Who Share Candy Bars Are The Coolest" Wurth. And that's a gift worth paying attention to.
In "Other Works" news, I finally got around to seeing Other Desert Cities on Broadway last night, which featured Judith Light (ex-Karen, OLTL). I wasn't crazy about the script, but I won't get into that here. I'll only say it was a strong production and the acting was top-notch by everyone (Stockard Channing! Stacy Keach! Justin Kirk!), but Judith Light was a major stand-out even among those rockin' thespians. I'd highly recommend it for her performance alone if you haven't seen it yet (and were thinking of it).
