Brad and Lucas getting married at the Nurses’ Ball is ridiculously contrived. And Lucas’ reasons for doing it there: free venue, food and booze are just ludicrous and tacky. Besides, the Nurses’ Ball isn’t supposed to be about them, it’s supposed to be around raising money for HIV and AIDS.
If they are that pressed, why not have a quick ceremony at the justice of the peace and then a reception at the hotel that Carly owns. Carly does happen to be Lucas’ sister. You don’t think she’d help her brother out? This set up is really dumb.
BTW, I’m hoping those rumors of Lucas being killed off are not true. Not only would one of the few gays on daytime would be dead, Lucas is a legacy (if little used) character with ties to the core canvas. And Lucas and Brad are a popular couple. They should be driving story, not being written out.
John Paul should never be dating anyone who’d buy a pair of Britney Spears’ boots. Nope. That kind of guy just isn’t JP’s type and the fact that he has to talk himself into this relationship proves that. This romance continues to be out of character for JP.
Uhh… Scott loves JP? They’ve only been dating a few weeks and they haven’t even had sex. At least JP made Scott realize where his proposal came from and that they need to take it slow.
How strange that John Paul and Ste are still married. They’ve been apart longer than they were together. I’m not getting why they haven’t divorced yet.
I know you have to be married for a full year before you can divorced in the UK, but that year was up last Christmas Eve. I hope this doesn’t mean the show is planning on getting them back together like they did with Ste and Doug. Getting back with Ste didn’t go so well for poor Doug.
The reveal of Sally being JP’s bio dad was well done and well acted. JP has reason to be shocked and angry at such a big lie. But how does JP tell Myra she has to leave? It’s her house. He should be packing his stuff and moving out. He’s a grown man anyway, with a full time job. Time to leave the nest.
Oh that James is truly wicked, manipulating Tony into turning over the club and using Harry to do it. It was a clever plot twist, though did we really need to have James punching Harry in the face? I guess they did it for effect, but it was a little too much, IMO.
I found it interesting that Nate said the fact that he and Aaron were so different was the basis if their attraction. Thing is, I never understood why they were into each other. Sure, opposites attract, but they had nothing in common and only brought out the worst in each other, when they weren’t enabling bad behavior. I like them as characters (though in Nate’s case, just barely), but as a couple they were a bad idea from the start.
Honestly, this relationship only existed because they were the only two gays on the canvas. But the pairing never made sense and was for the most part boring because of a lack of chemistry. Now that Meyne Wyatt is officially leaving for good in a couple of weeks, here’s hoping they find a much more compatible boyfriend for Aaron.
Those were sweet, nicely done scenes between Iolo and Tyler where they admitted how they felt about one another and decided to give things a go. I also liked later in the week where they discussed what commitment means and that they would have an exclusive relationship. I love their chemistry. They are a pair of beautiful men who look fantastic together.
However, I wish the show hadn’t of rushed things between them and I really wish that we’ve of actually seen Tyler’s growing feelings for Iolo on screen. Tyler did explain that he shied away from Iolo because Iolo outed him and then Iolo was hurt which makes sense, but we still should have seen Tyler’s conflict developing. Too much is happening off screen.
I did notice they mentioned William, which makes me wonder if he’ll be coming back now that Iolo and Tyler are officially a couple. Now would be the perfect time to bring him back, not just because of Tyler and Iolo’s relationship status, but because of the long awaited reveal about Sion stealing that money, which William knew about. That was a big reason why Sion was always trying to break Sion and William up and also led to Iolo’s kidnapping that caused the breakup between Iolo and William. That was always an unresolved storyline and William and Iolo never got any closure. Now’s the time to deal with it.
I also liked Iolo deciding to take self-defense after his attack a few weeks ago. I hope that wasn’t just a start for the boxing storyline (a plot I find really strange) and we see and hear more of this.
I’m also enjoying the drama with Chester, which is a well done family storyline about struggling parents dealing with a kid they played a role in messing up. Chester is a nasty, mean spirited teenager who I can’t stand. That just means the young actor playing Chester is doing a damn good job.
