Sometimes Absence Makes The Heart Just Fine
Hang on a second. Was that an actual PCPD briefing on an ongoing investigation? Like, where a higher-ranking officer provided information to a team of people? People employed by the PCPD? They actually have a staff for more than filing?
(I loved how these mug shots reflected reality for these ladies -- Heather's seriously dangerous, Lucy's just a kook.)
Is that a member of the PCPD taking notes on a criminal investigation? Where are we?
Why aren't they just letting some non-police entity solve the crimes and save the day? I'm really confused.
Oh wait, no I'm not. BECAUSE JASON MORGAN ISN'T ON THIS SHOW ANYMORE.
Meanwhile, I really liked the color of Olivia's dress.
Also, hey girls! Whoa.
Otherwise, what was I supposed to be rooting for in this scene? Connie to let Kristina off the hook? Because I am meant to care about Kristina? Now I'm lost again, and this time it doesn't seem to be about Jason's absence.
Speaking of Kristina, sweet mercy. She had a little "moment" with Johnny today.
Kristina: I wanted to kill Connie. I wanted her dead with all my heart. But you -- you never meant to kill Starr's family.
That better not be part of some sort of "understanding" that leads to... I'm not even going to say it. DON'T MAKE ME SAY IT!
Starr and Todd had a couple of lovely scenes today. Let's call it a pleasant surprise because while Roger Howarth playing Todd as just a comic villain is certainly entertaining, I do miss dark, tortured Todd who really does have a small handful of people he truly loves (and respects!). (That guy still had a good sense of humor, you know!) Ever since the big reveal about the baby switch and the Johnny blackmail, he's exclusively cared only about Carly or escape and has basically shown not a shred of remorse over the unspeakable way he betrayed his daughter. So it was great to see them today and hear him actually express that he does love her and that he ruined everything with her and the rest of the family.
And they said goodbye and he called her Shorty and I actually felt something! So you know, what better time to take up a third of the screen with some annoying graphic plugging a new show?
Way to make your moments work, ABC!
Really hoping there's some fun and excellent rationalizaton for all this because I definitely do not want any actual vampires anywhere near this show. But this Sinister McBain/Caleb hybrid thing that keeps showing up actually might keep me entertained in the meantime.
Because seriously. That continues to be hilarious.
And finally, but perhaps most importantly, DID THEY SERIOUSLY END YESTERDAY'S EPISODE WITH FRISCO AND MAXIE SEEING EACH OTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL AND THEN TOTALLY DROP THAT STORYLINE FOR TODAY'S EPISODE?!?!?!
Because I'm pretty sure they did. Not cool. Not cool at all, Afternoon Television Program.
