have never liked Logan or warmed up to his character. I wanted to feel
sorry for him when Scotty dissed and dismissed him, claiming that
someone like Logan could never be his son, but I couldn't work up much
indignation. I felt for the child Logan once was, and how it must have
hurt; not having a father while growing up, but I couldn't bring
myself to feel sorry for adult-Logan. Why? Maybe because he is a
victimizer of women and has always been? (Is this why Cody wants to
break his sleazy neck?) Maybe because he seems not to have one iota of
respect for women in general?
Coop, if rumors are to be believed, will soon be departing PC - and not to move to another town. My question is "why"? Why? Why? WHY?! Coop has so much potential to be a great character, if only they would USE him! And with a last name like Barrett? Why, why, WHY has NO ONE ever questioned him about any possible relation to Brenda or Julia Barrett? Especially Jax and Sonny! Killing off Coop would be a huge mistake, in my opinion, because it would be a waste of, not only a great character, but a wealth of storyline potentials for several key characters. I sincerely hope TPTB reconsider killing him off - IF that is really what they have planned for him.
Onto Lulu... WTF are they doing to this girl? Does she have a contract renewal coming up or something? Because, suddenly, she has become one of the most unlikable characters on the show!!! Using Spinelli the way she is, emotional blackmail, and the cherry on top? Her getting involved with Johnny Zacchara (even over the phone!)??? Lulu has made her fair share of mistakes, but never before has she been utterly stupid. Please, please, PLEASE do not make Lulu another victim of whatever came over Lucky that changed him from a great guy into an utter putz!
Speaking of Lucky... No, moron, you do not get to be pissed off at Lizzeh for hiring the FABULOUS Diane Miller to represent her in the divorce. She didn't do it to hurt Lucky, she chose Diane because - first and foremost - Diane already knows about the sticky situation with Jake's paternity; that makes one less person she has to explain herself to. Also, really... who ELSE was she going to hire? There may be hundreds of qualified attorney's in the fictional town of Port Chuckles, but not so many that are currently on canvas. Alexis? Well, she IS Sam's mother. That alone makes her a non-viable option for Lizzeh. Ric? He's the D.A. and so not the person Lizzeh would turn to for anything, particularly after the way he treated her during Jason's trial. Trevor? *shudder* HELLLLL no! Why not go with Diane? She does have other clients besides Jason and Sonny - so what if she's Jason's lawyer. Schmucky's just peeved because of Diane's connection to Jason. *eyeroll*
I do have to give kudos to Steve Burton, Rebecaa Herbst and Greg Vaughan for some out of the park performances this week. As much as Schmucky annoys me lately, and as irritated as I have been with Lizzeh for not ending the Jake-farce as well as her marriage sooner, it was truly heart-wrenching to see them both finally acknowledge that there was no hope for their marriage - a marriage that should never have been (the second time). We all knew it was over, but for the burial, but it doesn't make it any less sad. Nicely done.
Can I just mention Diane Miller again? LOVE her! Can we please, please, please get her on contract before someone else (who actually knows what a goldmine she is) snaps her up and whisks her out of PC, the way they did with Amelia's Annie Wersching?! Please? That woman is a breath of fresh air and she steals EVERY scene she is in. She has chemistry with even an inanimate prop, for crying out loud! Let HER be Spinelli's long-lost-mommy. Please? PLEASE?! PLEASE?!!!!
Speaking of Annie / Amelia, I really hope they give her a spectacular sendoff - one by which she is able to expose all of Sam's evil deeds to the world. (Hopefully Lucky would see her for what she really is and then run, run, run as far away from her as he can.) I hate that they dropped her story so quickly and so suddenly. I know a lot of Sam's biggest fanatics hate her (mainly because she has always told the truth about Sam) but it really is a loss for the show and the fans to have had this just fizzle out without any kind of resolution.
One last gripe? Can we talk continuity for a moment? Fans were primed and ready for the Jason-Carly verbal smackdown - after Carly burst into Jason's Penthouse and announced that she was going to protect him from Lizzeh no matter what. That was the tail end of Tuesday's show, so everyone expected them to pick up right where they left off the next day but... WTF?! Nothing. It's like she just made her pronouncement and stormed out. Suddenly it's the next day and we get NOTHING?! Instead they save that scene for Thursday's episode. *shakes head* Also, in the same episode, we see another HUGE gaping continuity hole. One minute Jerry is in Sonny's office, being threatened for the umpteenth time and the very next moment - before they even finish that "conversation," Jerry is over at Wyndemere, getting his arse kicked by Nikolas! Talk about whiplash! Can we finish one scene before moving onto the next, please? Very, very sloppy, and not a way to earn those "Best Direction for a Daytime Drama" Emmy's. Just saying!
Until next time... You can find me at the bar!
