Yesss, we're back to regular programming in the U.S. today! The interrupted GH schedule has reminded me that despite my many (many) complaints about the show, I rely on it being in my daily life. There's comfort in tuning in for dumb-fuck GH shenanigans five days out of seven, I guess.
Case in point: Nikolas continuing his streak of stunning idiocy by hotfooting it to Wyndemere and immediately getting caught by Charlotte. I know Nik won't hurt Charlotte and was just trying to cover his tracks, but making deals with a child and swearing her to secrecy is never, ever a good look.
Jason, essentially: "Ah, shit, you mean these minor kids who call me Dad are going to put a damper on my criminal activity? Son of a bitch." Somewhere, Drew's ghost is scoffing and throwing his hands up in the air, because when he came to this conclusion over two years ago everyone acted like he was insane. Now that the idea is sanctioned by Carly, suddenly it's a different story. Funny how that happens.
I need 100% more Chase/Finn brotherly chats and 100% less of Hayden judging Anna and acting as if there's any tenable parallel between Robin's childhood and Violet's. I'm legit proud of Anna for maintaining her cool, calmly shutting that shit down, and laying it out for Hayden that she knows exactly what's up. Hayden's play for space in Finn's heart is entirely transparent, and even if it weren't, Anna is nobody's fool. Even if she doesn't feel Hayden could seriously threaten her and Finn's relationship, she's smart enough to know she can't let Hayden's behavior slide by without calling it out for what it is: shameless and insidious. ("Are you still engaged? Time passes, feelings change." Girl, please.)
