The Real Victim Here Is My Eardrums
The General Hospital writers who decided to center so much of today's episode on Kristina and Connie together, in scenes prominently featuring the former's UNBELIEVABLY LOUD YELLS OF RAGE-Y RAGE and the latter's open-mouthed terror and, eventually, sneer-mouthed aggression, are either horrible people who want to cause me physical and emotional pain or absolute geniuses who know that what I need after a long and terrible day is a good guffaw and what in the world is funnier than Kristina screaming at Connie with such force that her voluminous hair kept flopping into her eyes in a manner that reminded me of Barkley on Sesame Street.
No, really, it was amazing and also terrible. Why would they allow Lindsey Morgan in a scene with such a mondo (and entertaining, but really: mondo) overactor when she hasn't exactly mastered the concept of "acting"? What was she trying to...do, here, exactly (I know, I know, convey rage and heartbreak, but I keep forgetting that Kristina and Trey were even a couple, because I've spent so long blocking out their scenes)? Why are any and all references to Trey being abandoned in a drawer so amazingly funny to me? Why is Dante the only police officer who works in Port Charles and how many more of his family members will he need to arrest before he decides it might be best to look into another line of work, like accounting or hairdressing?
