Did They Think My Heart Wasn't Broken Enough?
I mean between Maxie today and Todd and Blair and then Robert's anguish, I just... thank goodness we have some comic relief.
You know, I've heard a surprising number of people compare "Connie" to Rizzo from Grease which really was hilarious since I'd already been thinking Grease, but just not Rizzo (uh, who is obviously the best character in the play and the movie, especially in Stockard Channing form, and is way cooler than this chick).
Faking-tough-and-sexy-Sandy at the end is more like it.
Anyway, apparently Connie is mad because Kate stuffed her away, thinking Connie was "too Brooklyn," which I have to assume means Connie was wearing ironic t-shirts and only eating at sustainable macrobiotic restaurants and riding a bike and trying to revive the No-Wave Movement and joining collectives? Maybe Kate just really liked gluten?
I'm sort of at a loss for words over the stupidity of Luke "saving" Robert by getting his hopes up about having another kid who isn't really his (which he's bound to discover), and Maxie (who I've mostly wanted to punch hard in the face for months) crushed me today. But I am who I am, so, you know, let's talk real super-quick about Blair and Todd.
Obviously they're not together, which makes sense considering the end of OLTL. Even if Blair did know that Victor isn't really dead (which she doesn't), she wouldn't have already forgiven him for covering the whole thing up, and kidnapping and framing Tomas. So I'm good with that -- it wouldn't make sense story-wise or character-wise that in just 5 or 6 weeks, all is forgiven and everything is grand again. But they sure were great together and made me 100% confident that there will be forgiveness and reunion. The moment they shared in grief over their granddaughter...
Can I get a hug too, y'all?
And as if that weren't enough...
Todd: Everything I have in my life that is positive; everything that I have in my life that I love... I have because I've loved you. Our son, our daughter, our granddaughter. (Pause. His voice breaking) I am sorry for your loss, Mrs. Manning. I am never going to stop trying to put us back together.
She's trying so hard to stay strong! Oh they kill me.
That's all I got, y'all, or we'd be here all night.
