It Ain't All Bad
Now that I'm on a B&B mostly-hiatus, I did get a little worried. Time back in my life is great, lower blood pressure is great, but I'd promised myself I would at least keep up on the storylines that don't make my blood boil. Problem is, that basically leaves Marcus and Dayzee and, let's face it, the show generally makes their minimal screentime about as dull as humanly possible. It's been a little more interesting lately with a brother introduced into the mix for Marcus as well as Maya turning up to put the pressure on Dayzee for having assisted with somewhat sketchy adoption placement in the past.
Sure enough, though, Maya is copasetic about the death of her birth child and not going to try to get Dayzee into any trouble. Does this mean the end of this storyline? Because uh... so much for conflict. I'm really hoping that Maya and Carter stick around and are launched into a lasting storyline as soon as possible, but in the meantime, there's a silver lining:
Well, hello, Carter. You've been keeping secrets under there!
And I'll confess here that I did watch a few seconds of the scenes between Brooke and the priest, only because I assumed those scenes would naturally lead to some sort of forbidden sex, right? Silly me, those scenes were really about how Brooke is now completely psychotic and has arranged for a "surprise wedding" (which, you know, is generally a surprise when the couple in question isn't even engaged) for her daughter and He Who Must Not Be Named.
And again I say: I made the right choice.
