Quick Suggestion To Benevolent Ghosts Of The World
It sure is nice of various spirits to roam the Earth and remind the living that they are powerful or safe or being watched over or loved or... something. And ghosts are usually plentiful in soap towns (even ghosts that aren't real because they are ghosts of Not At All Dead People, like Robin or... oh hey, Anna was a ghost too, I guess ghosting-while-not-dead runs in the family), but it's high time someone gave the ghosts some tips.
Seeing dead people is startling. I once accidentally dropped my dog's leash because a rat ran out in front of us. Sometimes a noise makes me jump. It's best not to be holding anything fragile or liquid when one gets a shock, because said fragile item might drop and shatter or said liquid item might spill and stain the carpet with a deep burgundy stain, which sucks because red wine can really stain unless you get some salt on it pretty fast. Wait, what?
The point is, be careful when you first appear as a ghost to a loved one.
Here's one suggestion of what might be a bad time to make your debut apparition appearance to your son.
You know, WHEN HE'S HOLDING AN INFANT.
That kid is liable to drop that smaller kid!
All right, I guess he wasn't too shocked. And Danny's all, "What. WHAT. This ain't shit, lady, you should see what I've lived through already. What do you think, I was born yesterday?"
Also, apparently you can get knocked up pretty fast in the spirit world. Did she look that preggers when she got offed? (I realize the actress is really pregnant, but c'mon. Cover it up a tad!)
How cute are Duke and A.J., partners in business?
I love that Duke is getting woven into storylines outside of courting Anna. I know he initially claimed that the impetus for getting the ELQ job was to "prove himself" to Anna, which is fine (and we all know I'm rooting for huge success there!), but it's so important that he's integrated into other relationships and plots. Tying someone to only one character is generally a death knell for that person's longevity (which reminds me, Afternoon Television Program, please give Ellie a connection to someone in addition to Spinelli, please!), so this is promising indeed. And, as mentioned, the cutest.
And it's so nice to see A.J. having a little fun!
Now how can Elizabeth resist that sly smile? (Well... hopefully she can't. Not for long! And how adorable is A.J.'s nervousness around Elizabeth? VERY adorable, that's how!)
Speaking of Elizabeth, Steve lived. So uh... yay? And Olivia and Steve are going to move up their wedding. THE ROMANTIC EVENT OF THE CENTURY, right? This'll totally rival Luke and Laura's wedding in viewer numbers, am I right or am I right?
Speaking of romantic events, John and Sam generated some heat after the big Easton/EastonDouble fight scene that resulted in Caleb/Stephen Clay's alleged demise (I'd put money on their wrapping this story up with a little 'BUT WAS HE REALLY?' vampire moment at the end because they just cannot resist the silliness... perhaps a bat will swoop in to Steve and Olivia's wedding?).
I mean that is a soapy pre-makeout moment if I've ever seen one.
D'oh! Nevermind. Lucy's a total cockblocker with all her "but he's a vampire, he has a magical powerful ring!" business. Way to ruin the mood, slayer!
I'd write up a big thing and post screencaps of Sam getting her kid back, but hey, we all knew that was happening and Danny just rolls with the kidnappings at this point. Hell, he'd probably be more traumatized by going a month without getting kidnapped at this point.
