  1. At first, I felt a little bad for Chrissie when Lawrence kicked her out. Then I remembered how her obsessive pursuit of finding her “real” father despite the obvious pain it caused Lawrence was what caused him to be publicly outed. If it means that much more to her than Lawrence, let her have her new dad if she can find him.

  2. Theresa’s leaving (maybe dying). Summer’s leaving & told Brady to look to his Grandfather about Tate. There’s talk of John Anniston (Victor) leaving/retiring. this may be the set-up. Victor manipulated Tate’s kidnapping because he hates them both; then Victor will go to Greece (or wherever) when everyone finds out. Maggie then leaves him after she finds out what he did so she will get to stay. Sonny coming back? it may all be too late with the entire show being such a mess…….

  3. Guess who “General Hospital” finally let on-screen today after over a month has passed since his last appearance (and after the writers’ ridiculous “We love the character, he’s so important to the show!” quotes in that Michael Fairman interview): Lucas. He was allowed on-screen to drag Julian for his recent actions and, of course, had to prop Sonny while he was at it. Blech.

  4. I should have mentioned the Chrissie/Lawrence stuff in my review. Chrissie is an ungrateful child who should have been thrown out. I’ve really grown to dislike her during this ‘who is my real dad’ storyline. And yes, I didn’t miss Liv. Too bad Aaron and Robert had to talk about her.

    Sheryl is an terrible person. I wouldn’t mind seeing her leave forever too. But I’ve wanted that for a long time. She was especially awful when she got pregnant on purpose during her affair with Hywel so she could break up his marriage. I felt bad when she ended up losing that baby…. but not for her.

    Efifion is pretty hot and I think Ed is too. I love that Ed is always in workout clothes and shorts.

  5. My favorite part of the Lawrence story was when he told Chrissie what’s-what. It was long overdue and hit the nail on the head. Throwing her and Lachlan out was just gravy. My favorite part of the Aaron/Robert story was the complete absence of Liv.

    Having already seen the first of this week’s People of the Valley episodes, I don’t mind this turn in the Iolo/Tyler story. I’m really taking to DJ after the paternity reveal and the breakup with Cadno. He’s such a sweet character. I haven’t followed the show long enough to know Sheryl’s history, but God in heaven please let her leave and take that damn baby with her. And the show definitely needs more Eiffion, preferably with as few clothes as possible.

    It looks like I need to start giving Coronation Street another look now that the Todd/Billy story is heating up.
