    I can’t see HamLexis going anywhere. He’ll soon discover what an emotional cripple she is and head back to Anna. It’s just a diversion until Alexis eventually rolls back around to Julie again.

    And can you imagine Alexis as mayor? She can’t even run her own life, much less a city.

    Julian called Ned “Ted” today. I still can’t figure out Kim’s purpose here.

    S’up with little Bobby locking Drew in the hope chest? Is it supposed to show he was twisted as a kid? Well, duh.

    I thought Curtis was gonna get down on Jim in the alley. Turns out he was just throwing some shade. Let down.

    I think Maxie’s about to talk a walk on the dark side.

    Julian calls him Ted as a jibe. Ned’s name is Edward. Both Ned and Ted (more typical) are nicknames for Edward. He can’t call him Ed or Eddy since that doesn’t sting with Eddy being his stage name.

    Kim has no purpose other than they like to cast ex-Carly’s.

    Yeah, I knew about Ned, Ted for Edward. I just thought his screwed up his line. He should have called him Little Q if he wanted to put him down.

    Like when Kim called Julian “Charlie.” I know that’s the name on his dive. Surely she knows he’s Julian.

    I bought Tamara Braun as Carly back in the day, but she seems to be phoning it in as Kim.

    Did I miss an episode? How are Quinn and Alexis sleeping together, not drinking, and not seeming to remember that they slept together????

    So Lulu wants to give up her big 2 week career as a writer. ;)

    And no one though to have the office where Nathan was killed cleaned up???

    They remember. It was just a stupid thing to do. I can’t believe he would get into bed with Alexis while he was sober. More drama with Ham and Anna.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure Val wouldn’t let Nina go back to the office without ServPro-ing it first. Just more opportunity for some over acting.

    The way Maxie is being so stoic right now, I think she’s going to eventually have a meltdown, and it won’t be pretty.

    A secretive organization like the WSB is gonna give a civilian an award in public? Yeah, okay.

    Nice burn that Maxie laid on Nelle. Obviously, there’s bad blood there but I can’t remember why.

    A little spark between Jason and Sam. How long before they get down to it?

    What’s Heinrik’s game here? And how bad will Jason and Drew pound on him when they find out he is Peter?

    Looks like Ava may have some leverage over Sonny briefly. But I wouldn’t push it if I were her.

    Nelle better hope that baby stays in place for about 18 months. She won’t only have Sonny to contend with but Jason as well. Maybe she should start picking out a location in the Pine Barrens for her remains.

    The WSB isn’t that secretive. They’ve been in the public eye a lot. Think Interpol.

    The Finn/Alexis thing was just poorly written and rushed.

    True and true.

    S’up between Negative Nelle and Maxie?

    A clever way to commemorate episode 14000.

    Epiphany unwittingly encapsulated my feelings on the pairing of Liz and Frankfurter: “Aw, HELL no!”

    I missed a lot of the show because the local affiliate is working on upgrades to the transmitter.

    I’m not entirely clear on how Anna got Andre out of prison.

    Is Nelle trying to gaslight Carly into thinking Morgan is still alive?

    They really want to push this Hamilton-Alexis-Anna triangle on us. Meanwhile, Hayden’s still out there having his baby.

    Yeah, I was a bit taken aback when he just strolled in.

    That’s exactly what devious Nelle is trying to do, drive Carly crazy. She’s really looking to get whacked. It’ll be the next big murder mystery. (Mike did it, accidentally).

    Hayden is yesterday’s news. To paraphrase Clemenza “Hayden, won’t see her no more.” (Or, until the child is 8 or 9 and they run out of other story ideas).

    I’m still most curious about what Heiney is up to. It’s not like he can control Drew now. What’s his plan. He’s such a milquetoast. He wouldn’t know how to be the next big bad.

    Is he only on the show because he’s Laura Wright’s boy toy?

    Wait, what? (Does some Googling...) Ah, I see now. Huh.

    Well, it seems Andre has got himself a get out of jail free card, courtesy WSB. Sentence commuted, records expunged the whole 9.

    Odd that the WSB wants to study brain mapping in the open now. You’d expect maybe CDC, Harvard or Mount Sinai.

    How many chances is Liz going to give Franco to prove what a freak he really is?

    I guess they’re running the Alzheimer’s story as sort of a PSA, but I really don’t want to see all the emotional turmoil this will unleash. Been there, done that.

    Nelle ought to know by now that can’t get away with anything in the Port of Chuck. She will be found out. Consequences will be grim.

    Uh oh, check your six, Kiki. Ol’ Doc Bensch is coming around and trying to get a target lock. He’s such a sleazy fellow.

    I’d love to see a CU of Peter where he admits: “I don’t have a real purpose here, I’m just Carly’s off-screen boyfriend.” That would be refreshing.

    To be fair, Wes Ramsey is a soap opera veteran.

    Yes, but that doesn’t make him a good actor. I’ve caught him “acting” enough times to pull me out of the show.

    As I said, he is a soap opera veteran.

    He has a huge filmography, too. I’m not sure why.

    So does William Shatner.
    ;)

    Maybe he went to the Joey Tribbiani school for acting in soap operas.

    He’s one of those guys that looks like he’s thinking instead of being in character. Or, he doesn’t believe the words that are written for him. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Another prime example is Ava. Especially when she has to be over the top. I have to ff through her scenes.

    Ava is best when she is subtle. Then she is pretty good. She isn’t good at scene chewing. Which should be a compliment but it isn’t.

    I think on top of Peter not being a good actor that the character is poorly written so far. The concept works but the lines are stilted. It takes a good actor to pull off the “villain” role. Thats what Faison and Helena we’re so brilliant.

    Are we really sure that he's a villain?

    Yeah, but Helena and Faison were scary villains. They could convey so much with a look.

    I don’t think the writers have figured out what they want to do with Heinrik yet. So, maybe he doesn’t know what to do.

    But that's pretty lame at this stage with all the other bad guys dead or in a coma.

    With Ava, it’s in her eyes. I don’t believe what she’s saying because it feels like she’s calculating the camera blocking where her light will be best instead of what her character is feeling.
