For the week of October 11th…
Replace “= = = =” with whatever verb comes to mind:
“It’s my party and I’ll ====if I want to. ====if I want to. You would ====too, if it happened to you.”*
Oh, Annie. I completely understand your need to ==== after your party disaster. Your only mistake was ====ing your cousin-in-law instead of your husband. Oh, well, these things happen.
It was about time Scott let his rage filled flag fly. His calmness was starting to freak me out a little. He never really got angry at his uncle for accidently shooting his father. He never really got angry with Annie for cuckolding his uncle with JR. He never quite gets angry enough each time JR reminds him that he “is not really a Chandler.” He must be angry about the boring sex with Marissa. And now he must contend with Annie cuckolding him with his cousin.
Scott doesn’t have to be the antithesis of his father. Looking objectively at people and their motivations doesn’t make you a bad person; it makes you a smart person.
(I like Daniel Cosgrove but I am going to miss Adam Mayfield’s take on the character.)
What else. What else.
I try my best to like Kendall. Well, maybe not my best, but I do try. This week I wanted to smack her all the way to Port Charles. Poor wittle Kendall had to do community service instead of oh, yeah, going to prison. Are we really expected to believe she doesn’t know how to clean a toilet or wash a floor? Her adoptive parents, the Harts, lived a life in Florida that could hardly be considered luxurious. One of Kendall’s main complaints was that the Harts did not provide the life she deserved. I used to feel sorry for Alice Hart, because Kendall had forgotten all about her. Trust me on this one, Alice, you are better off without this brat bothering you all the time. If she gets any brattier, how will we be able to tell Kendall and Bianca apart?
Not-dead David didn’t complain as half as much during his community service gig. Not-dead David had to swab floors in the same hospital where he served as head cardiologist. Oh, and he lost his medical license, too.
Speaking of David:
“Nobody manipulates Greenlee. Greenlee brought out the worst in David.”
With that sentence, I went from merely liking Erica to almost loving her.
“Please don’t do this to AJ.” Nice try Colby but Marissa is a Carey. Careys always know what is best for any child-lots of cookies, ice cream, and grifting lessons.
Glad Jack is back. Pine Valley needs a grown-up.
“He can’t sleep without his stuffed cow.” Please don’t let this be a foreshadowing of a not-dead Babe returning to PV.
“So you sleep with the guy. On what planet does that make sense?” Scott, let me introduce you to my dear old friend, Planet Crack.
“Who am I? Crazy Annie? Some gold-digging slut who married Adam Chandler and then slept with his son?”
One reason I love Annie? Because she just might be the most self-aware person in the Valley.
On to the spoilers:
You’d think Scoot would be upset because the truth behind the purloined nanotech project could come out, but he’s not. His attitude surprises JR and Annie.
I’m guessing that everything pales in comparison to finding your wife in your bed with your cousin.
Scott takes a gun from Casa Chandler’s safe.
I don’t really care about this spoiler. I do care that the place doesn’t feel like Casa Chandler ever since Adam left.
Scott confesses that he stole the nanotech project from Palmer. JR and Annie are shocked that he confessed to Caleb.
These days so many PV residents are doing so many stupid things that Scott’s confession doesn’t surprise me at all.
Caleb is mighty pissed with Scott. Opal is angry at Scott for taking advantage of a dying Palmer.
The more I think about this, the more I am convinced that this is Palmer’s last scheme. He told Scott about the project, knowing that Scott would steal it. Should the truth come to light, the Chandlers would be on the brink of ruin. Few things made Palmer happier than a chance to ruin the Chandlers. Besides, I like the idea that Palmer wouldn’t let death stop him from messing with people.
Jesse arrests Scott.
Scott’s big mistake wasn’t stealing; it was not becoming BFFs with Jesse and Tad. Their friendship comes with a “get out of jail free” card.
Annie makes a mistake-she visits Scott in jail.
See above: stupid things/PV residents.
Scott tells JR that if he goes after Annie, he will lose custody of his son.
But which son? The one he already has or the one Annie is carrying? I don’t if Annie is pregnant but it’s been quite awhile since we had a WTD storyline. (I don’t think the whole Damon/Bailey thing counts.) And no, I don’t want a WTD story, which means we’ll probably get one.
The judge awards custody of AJ to Marissa until the final custody hearing takes place.
JR is having a really crappy week, isn’t he?
Erica and Caleb work together to get CE back into the fold.
As for me, I want Caleb to work on not referring to Erica as “Dorothy.” It irritates me. A lot.
Erica wants Scott to say that JR was his partner in crime.
I think Scott should turn down Erica’s request. I don’t trust Caleb. He has become too influential too fast.
PV’s other felon, Greenlee, discovers her situation is causing trouble for Fusion.
Isn’t something always causing trouble for Fusion?
Tad tells Ryan that a Nick Pearson saw him outside David’s room moments before he died.
I don’t know who this Nick Pearson is but I already like him.
The night before the trial, Amanda, Jake, Ryan, Greenlee, Kendall, and Madison hold a kegger at Wildwind.
I hope they hold their party in the mausoleum. I miss that place.
Ryan insists on testifying at the trial. Greenlee insists that Ryan not testify at her trial.
Aww, aren’t those kids sweet? You know what would really be sweet, if they both were found guilty and sent off to prison. The drinks would be on me!
Jake and Jesse commit perjury testify.
Let the endless lists of David’s transgressions, real and imagined, begin.
Angie talks to Krystal about her pregnancy.
“Well, Angie, you have come to the right person. I have lots of experience with this. First thing we need to do is decide where to post your “Baby for Sale” ad. I’m thinking Craig’s List and the Pennysaver, what do you think?”
