No, I'm kidding, I have none of that to offer.
So sorry for my pathetic silence, especially in light of such fun stuff on OLTL last week. I have been working too hard playing too hard and sleeping not at all and I'm just running on fumes here. So let's just dive in with some totally random non-sequiturs about today's episode of One Life to Live.
First of all, Tea thinks Jack was always the more grounded one of Todd's kids? Did someone give her forget-me-now pills about basically every interaction she's ever had with him?
Second of all, Bo not understanding that Snoop Dogg is now Snoop Lion was the cutest ever.
Nora: It's Snoop Lion, honey.
Bo: Snoop don't lie, honey!
As awkward as Snoop's visits always are, they'll never fail for me just because of the whole incongruity in his alleged friendship with Bo and Nora. Sure, we had sit through his movie plug, but we also got that hilarious explanation of his name change, complete with Bo getting all starry-eyed and nostalgic about all that meaningful time he spent in Jamaica. OF COURSE HE DID!
Viki and Natalie finally got some mother/daughter time! Correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel like we've only seen them on phone calls with each other but not actually sharing a scene. I love their relationship.
I can't lie, though. I'm a bit disappointed that Natalie's storyline is picking up steam and it seems to be about John. Despite having been won over at the end, I hadn't ever been a fan of that couple (I much preferred her with Jared and Cristian, both men who liked her bad-girl streak and loved her like crazy). I know they were beloved but for me personally he took away a lot of her fire.
Now, if thinking about him always leads to her doing shots and getting all hottied out and going clubbing, I'm all for it!
Unfortunately the hints were coming left and right that Clint was totally responsible for their breakup and Natalie has no idea John thinks she took out a restraining order on him to keep him away from Liam. (Really? Clint can be nefarious, but these people have friends in common!) Which of course sets up a reunion, which also might mean a recast. I need to stop overthinking it! I'm too delirious!
So, is the youth brigade pretty much going to be featured in 100% of the episodes? Don't get me wrong, I really don't dislike them. And I think both Rob Gorrie and Corbin Bleu were pretty phenomenal casting choices. But maybe they can skip every fifth episode? How's that sound? Those can be Vimal's days, obviously!
How's the new two-episodes-a-week structure working for everyone? I'm still sad about it, but coincidentally it happened during such a busy time for me that it worked out kind of well. (My DVR is still full of my other soaps unwatched -- OLTL is the only one I've caught all of because it's the morning routine. Well, twice a week.) Of course I guess it's out into the great unknown again what with all the writing team personnel changes! I GET NERVOUS, Y'ALL. I'm still having to pinch myself that the show is back at all!
