I'll admit it's been more intense than expected. I was watching GH and I thought "wow, this sucks" and then I went back to the start and there was no Garin. I spent a few days in complete, abject grief over the change back to guns, guns, and more guns - the loss of a possible Jason transition and the rapid switch in Johnny's character - the lack of good Scrubs moments - and the quick clean-up of what had been really interesting storytelling. It was harsh. Very, very harsh.
There was glimmer yesterday, though, and I've noticed Michael Conforti is still listed as a writer. Maybe ABC learned a little something. I wouldn't mind some Guza plot action combined with some Garin-esque people-writing. That would be rockin' awesome. But, alas, when I saw some lovely Liason and Jax/Carly (what is their acronym?) - all I could think was, "Well, this must be the kiss of death for 2 romances."
I still haven't forgiven Guza for the gross Carly/Jason sequence when she was drowning. Blech. The only thing worse than Jason being 100% back to the mob would be Jason 100% with Carly in the mob. An flame me if you please. I love Carly but never liked her with Jason - she's Sonny's true love and a pretty good mate for Jax. That's really enough for one woman.
But I'll stop being so grumpy and be grateful for what was good yesterday: Jason's tearfulness as he spoke with Monica, the nice Liason moment, and the Jax/Carly moment in the nursery. That was good drama. And I'll enjoy it...while it lasts.
Since I know that non-stop gunfire is soon to be a reality, I've found myself in a momentary love affair with One Life to Live in order to assuage my pain. Rex and Gigi are so adorable - all that confusion and hidden attraction...reminds me why I fell so hard for soaps back when I was young and idealistic...just a good old-fashioned romance over there at OLTL. If you find yourself licking wounds over GH, you may want to see what the neighbor has to offer.
