Help – we’re drowning in bad
guys! They seem to be everywhere you look, whether they are openly
villainous or quietly backstabbing. The inmates are running the asylum.
Even Sonny is starting to look like he should be wearing the white hat.
Let’s see – Lorenzo and Mr. Craig are dealing deadly hands with the
mysterious “shipment”. Jason, even for those who love him, is always
armed and ready to shoot. Skye has become the gangster’s moll overnight
and will be a force to contend with. There is an assassin on the loose
with Sonny’s name on his bullet. The devilish Ric has become totally
immersed in the dark side. His actions are so hideous that even his less
than holy brother is stunned. Busting poor Alexis for pot smoking to
ease her lung cancer, although she used to have such a bad cough that
smoking anything never seemed like an option, was lower than low. But, I
have to admit that Alexis is really a novice at this. Any
“participating” teen could tell her to go lock herself in the bathroom
and hide the goods.
Pete is giving Patrick all the misinformation he needs on relationships,
seemingly in order to kill his thing with Robin. Pete also is openly
chasing Georgie, knowing she is still in love with Dillon and somewhat
younger than him. Maxie, who more than qualifies as a bad guy/gal, has
schemed and weaseled her way in and out of many situations, and is still
in operation. Lucky is still teetering, since he has pills on his person
and he could at any time return to being Sleazy Lucky. Sam is also
teetering, since for all we know, Angela, her pseudonym, could be a
killer. The new priest is a bad guy as far as I am concerned just
because he is identical in every which way to his brother Manny.
Sonny has married Carly again due to lies and deceit. Who wouldn’t fall
in love with someone like that? Our lovely Liz, although a basically
good person, is up to her eyeballs in lies. Helena, as much as I love
her, has kidnapped Spencer from the kidnapper (one bad gal down!). She
is even starting to look like a normal grandma compared to some of the
other characters. We all know Scotty is hovering and is most likely up
to no good.
And where, may we ask, are the good guys? Mac has been reduced to
occasional cameos, mostly to ridicule his efforts and intelligence. Luke
is AWOL and should be back soon, as well as Jax. Sweet Noah can’t say or
do anything without getting knocked down. Robert is AWOL. Tracy, who can
be as bad as bad gets, is starting to show some real humanity at times.
At least we have Patrick and Dillon, who could probably never get
corrupted. I’m still going to root for the white hats!
