Unsurprising Surprises and Surprises of Fun
Today's episode promptly revealed that Shawn didn't really shoot Nikolas which, I mean, duh. We pretty much all knew that, despite yesterday's attempted fake-out.
But here's where it got awesome.
Shawn: C'mon, Dante, you know me. I didn't shoot anyone, I'm just trying to help!
What? Yeah, I'm sure Dante would never side-eye this dude considering his early storylines. If I do recall correctly, Shawn was deeply involved in the car explosion at Dante's father's wedding. A former mercenary who reformed and then got bored again and started acting as muscle for the local mob boss. You know me! (But he's a good guy now, y'all, 'cause remember that one time he found a dog in a car? Where is that dog these days?)
Anyway, naturally he took a bullet for the police commissioner today because while they've done a great job of making GH wildly and blissfully less mob-focused over the past year, we have to have some way to recognize our show. And what better way than allowing one of Sonny's associates to be valiant and heroic and more competent than cops?
But don't allow me to speak too soon! Dante got a good moment today where he helped save Shawn from a gunman in the bushes, and then practically beat the crap out of said gunman, trying to get information about what happened to Lulu.
The gunman didn't really much appreciate this approach. So he worked up the biggest loogie I have ever seen!
All right, I kid. He started foaming at the mouth. Because he killed himself with a cyanide pill so he wouldn't have to talk about what he knows.
Poor Dante! (I am going to miss Dominic Zamprogna and Julie Marie Berman together so much.)
In other news, Scott and Bobbie got in some quality time, Laura and Alexis and Elizabeth worried over a not-out-of-the-woods-yet shot Nikolas, Britt got yelled at by her awesome campy mother some more, Molly and T.J. made plans to go to the Nurses Ball together, and the show is definitely teasing a possible union between Felix and Milo. (Okay, or Felix and a recast Lucas?)
That's it! Oh yeah, something about Patrick realizing he has feelings for Sabrina, which I don't want to talk about because I just can't be objective. My lack of objectivity has nothing to do with Robin, by the way, since she is "paradigm-dead." I'd love a fun new romance for Dr. Drake. My lack of objectivity really only has to do with, well... my feelings about Sabrina. Which are similar to Britt's. Because I am apparently not a good person, which I can live with in this case!
