So Utterly Trivial!
It didn't quite achieve the comedic heights of the "Helena faked Lucky's death and it was hilarious" caper, but Heather and Todd's dead baby switch was a constant source of amusement to all of us, right? Or it was to some of us, at least. Namely Todd Manning. That scamp!
As Louise ranted on Facebook, Todd had a run-in with Sam that was basically the opposite of everything I've ever wanted for these two characters from an entertainment standpoint and it was also incredibly angry-making.
Todd: Sam, we live in the same town. We're gonna run into each other. Don't you think?
Sam: You think you just got away with it. Stealing my son, leaving me to grieve.
Todd: You got your kid back. Why can't it be over?
Sam: Because it's not.
Todd: Okay. You're an angry Sam. I see that. I get it. You want revenge. I know how that feels.
Sam: Well, maybe, one day, something really awful will happen to your family. Then you can tell me you know how it feels.
Rage, right? RAGE.
Okay, first of all, THIS WAS THE ENTIRETY OF THEIR CONFRONTATION and I'm sorry to YELL AT YOU IN CAPS LOCK, but I am angry that what could have been an EPIC confrontation was reduced to a couple of dozen words when it could have taken place over the course of the entire week or, at the very least, a few different scenes! It's only sort of a huge deal! I mean, it's clearly not as huge as Todd and Carly's estrangement, which is the most important thing to ever take place in the history of Port Charles (stalking and non-consensual video surveillance are also pretty hilarious to the GH writers. "Creepy? More like cre---creazy that these crazy kids can't work it out, amirite?!"), but still!
The writing--and Roger Howarth's performance--were so tone-deaf and wrong that it actually IS almost funny in how spectacularly it misses the point. Like, Todd was so irritated that he had to have this conversation with this random lady (who was destroyed--albeit temporarily, like, get over it, woman!--by his actions) instead of creepily monitoring the woman he's crushing on. And peeved at having a conversation that was so below him, like Sam was the one being petty over borrowed clothes.
"Ohmigod, Sam. Are you really going to roll your eyes at me every time you see me? I'm sorry that you're upset with me for returning your sweater with a hole in it, but it was an accident. Can't we just move on? It's not like it's cashmere!"
