I Have To Tell You Something
Watching soap operas for--oh, god, the rest of this sentence is both tragic and old-sounding--over half my life--really tragic and REALLY old-sounding--has made me sadly accustomed to the more ridiculous daytime television tropes, like comical reaction shots leading into a commercial and doppelgangers running amok and so on and so forth, so it's not like I'm SURPRISED by the amount of times characters boldly and seriously proclaimed "There's something I need to tell you" (or some variation of those words) to a bewildered character who never gets to hear what the first character has to tell them because they are interrupted by someone, or some thing or a commercial break.
I'm just ANNOYED by it--really, show? You think there's a chance any of us would believe Britt would spill the beans to Dante so soon? I know her defenses were probably down because of how adorable and sweet Dante was with Ben, but really, don't insult my intelligence like that! And Silas, too? Silas has a deep dark secret that he wants to confess to Sam, but probably won't because he'll keep getting interrupted by angry Quartermaines (according to Sam, the whole lot of them are filled with simmering rage, while the Corinthos family is more even-keeled because everything that's ever happened in Port Charles apparently hasn't really happened) or obsessive phone calls from Ava or who knows what and it will take a year and a day for him to confess his secret, which is probably profoundly uninteresting. And I'm just going to say, show, the bar for uninteresting is set pretty dully with Steve's secret Memphis death story, or whatever it was that he did that I can barely remember on account of not caring but which I vividly remember included flashbacks accompanied by a strumming guitar. So!
Also, I'm SCARED: how many times will Sabrina attempt to tell Patrick that she's pregnant before chickening out or getting interrupted or nobly deciding that it's better for her and Patrick if he never knows the truth? My money is on "once an episode for the next seven months"; there will be over-the-top and stilted references to babies in front of her which she will react to in a wildly exaggerated fashion in perhaps every scene she is in, but she'll only attempt to tell the truth once an episode. It's going to be a long nine months/however long Sabrina is pregnant before she goes into labor in a particularly dramatic way.
