I had to take some time off from watching GH because I was getting bored with the rotation of stories. Of course, when I did, my blog got tons of hits on my Silas, Kiki, Franco post from way back and it made me wonder what was going on? All these searches for, “Is Kiki Silas’ daughter?” kept showing up and I had to know what I was missing. So, I went to the dvr and watched 4 days in a row and I’m glad I did.
I’m still kind of sad that watching four days in a row live made me want to stop watching in the first place, but the stuff I saw was magical.
Ava and Silas! Woohoo – I never in a million years would have thought to put Maura West with Michael Easton, but it’s brilliant. They are both superstars on their own with huge fan bases. They are both gorgeous and talented. And they are both exactly what I need to keep watching. I admit to being a Maura West/Michael Easton fan for years. Maura as Carly Tenney Snyder was my all time fave soap character, and I fell in love with Michael when he played Tanner on Days of Our Lives years and years ago.
When Ava saw Silas, Maura let just a little of Carly’s weakness for Jack show on her face…I was hooked. And when Silas saw Ava, Michael played it with the knowledge that here – here might be the thing that’s really made Silas the asshole he is to others.
Aside from loving the possibilities with the two of them, I love the chatter it’s got going about Kiki and who her father might be. We know her father can’t be Franco – first cousins as lovers just won’t work and it’s obvious Kiki and Michael are going to end up together, so how can they not be related? How also can they keep it looking like they are?
This also brings us to the “Who’s Sam’s daddy?” story. From what I’ve read it looks like Peter Reckell will be joining GH as a Jerome. If he’s Danny’s grandfather then Kiki could still match Danny through the Jerome side of the family but look like she’s Franco’s daughter!
There are so many cool ways this story could go and I want to watch it…
I also want to watch the Nikolas/Laura/Lucy Deception business. Keep Nikolas on my screen and use Britt to make Elizabeth jealous. Put AJ with Carly and keep the feud going inside the Quartermaine family.
But please, please, please ditch the Sabrina story and find a place to put Patrick where he fits in with other actors who we care about. I’m tired of them and it looks like it’s going nowhere…
I think that’s still my main point – as much as I’m loving some stuff – I can’t figure out what to hope for or where anything’s heading. There are too many starts and not enough follow through. We’ve got enough characters…play with what you have and stop bringing in new people.
As much as I hated to lose Kelly Sullivan, there’s a story line that needed to be wrapped up! Sonny and Olivia make sense because you can connect them to drama through Dante and Lulu. The Kate story takes time away from other family story lines. Same thing with Patrick and Sabrina.
And for goodness sake – get on with making Ellie related to Tracy already. They’ve been laying groundwork for months. Either she is or she isn’t, and if she isn’t, she’s taking up time from other stories.
If you stuck around through that stream of consciousness rant – Thanks! I’ll try to be more structured next time!
