What The World Needs Now...
Well, there is at least one person who is going to be completely fine with Robin Scorpio's exit storyline, regardless of how rushed and poorly placed and absolutely implausible (I could keep listing negative aspects of this storyline. There are only, like, three dozen to choose from. It's basically a perfect storm of Not Good things. But for brevity's sake, I will just say "Leaving Emma?" and glance at you over the top of my glasses--or I would do that if I wore glasses. I feel like I'd do it a lot because it's melodramatic and bitchy, which is right up my alley. Curse my stellar vision) it is--because if anybody needs Jason Morgan back in his life, it's Sonny, and if it means Robin has to leave her family mere minutes after reuniting with them so she can haul ass to Scarsdale (we're neighbors, Robin! I...meant for that to read way less crazily than it does. Still, 914 represent!) to free Jason from the slab of ice he is living in and resuscitate him so that he can kill again, GOD DAMN IT, ROBIN, LEAVE FASTER!
Because this is the face of a man who needs Jason.
The blank-eyed panic on his face after he shot AJ--who, not to blame the victim or anything, but really, you didn't think it was a good time to tell Sonny that Ava killed Connie? You screamed "Just listen" like a hundred times, very shrilly, but didn't give him anything to listen to. If you had spilled the Connie beans, he might have paid attention. He also might have thought "Connie...that sounds familiar. Blonde, right? And [does universal sign for crazy]?" because I buy his great love for Connie not even a little but MAYBE he'd have paused] brought me to tears, I laughed so hard. How out of his depth was this fierce mobster? He was just staring, clearly thinking "...the hell do I do now? Do I have to like...touch him? Do I bury him? There's fucking blood all over the place, which is just disgusting I need Jason. Jason would know what to do! DAMN IT! WHY DOES HE HAVE TO BE DEAD?!" I also laughed at how limber Ava was when she scrambled out of the way so that her glam jumpsuit didn't get stained by AJ's blood. It was a pretty comedic few minutes (which I needed after all of the Scrubs flashbacks. I can't, you guys. I just can't)!
Sonny Corinthos, protector of women: This is how you get off? Hurting women, abusing them, killing them?
AJ: Sonny, listen. I know how this looks, but I wasn't going to kill her! You've got to hear me out--
Sonny: I'm not [A full minute of unintelligible yelling loudly] YOU KILLED THE WOMAN I LOVE!
AJ: No, no, I didn't! No, I didn't! Listen, if you just put the gun down, I can explain, I can make you understand.
Ava, caressing her neck and giving an Academy Award winning performance: He tried to kill me.
AJ: SHUT UP! Don't listen to her.
Sonny: Who do I listen to? I'M DONE LISTENING, I'M DONE [More unintelligible screaming at the highest volume. I could not make out a single word of it. It could have just been sounds. "Ahhhh! Eeeee! Ooooooh!" I can't say for sure that he screamed "I'm done, I'm done, damn it" although it sounds like he did. I CAN say for sure that he spat all over the place. And then shot AJ]
I will continue laughing loudly until Sonny is cleared of all charges on a technicality and mocks AJ for being weak and awful. So...tomorrow at 2:15ish, I guess.
