    How fucking typical the show brought up McCall & Ashford only in the context of dissolving their partnership. That business and any potential Sam/Curtis friendship evaporated the moment Sam got back with Jason and prioritized him as her sole confidant. Now Sam's stuck aimlessly waiting around on Jason to be released from jail for the umpteenth time (and no, show, that jerk Beechers Corners cop doesn't negate that Jason was indeed engaging in illegal activity and is right where he belongs). Bobbie's diabetes diagnosis might be more meaningful if it hadn't abruptly transpired over the span of two episodes, but the overall handling was informative. I liked seeing Lucas in the simultaneous roles of doctor and son. Plus, Bobbie's awesome slam of anti-vaxxers was much appreciated. Kim behavior (and Drew's palpable distress) kickstarted my secondhand embarrassment so hard today. The thing is, I think it would be interesting to explore how Oscar's death and the loss of active motherhood has warped Kim's perception of herself. But this manic, desperate need to create a baby -- and forcing that need on unwilling participants -- is really uncomfortable to watch, and it leans into the "women are crazy and can't handle their emotions" trope more than I care for. I'd rather Kim grieve and redefine her life without grasping at the idea of a new baby as a cure-all.

    S08.E04: One Big Happy Family

    I was taken aback by Nova's meltdown and Cate's cavalier attitude towards it. Of course Nova freaked out when her mom said "I'm leaving." This is a child who is used to mommy disappearing for long stretches of time and doesn't have the security to trust that she'll return. Cate getting amused by Nova's distress (which she caused by saying "I'm leaving" instead of "I'll be gone a few hours but I'll be back to have supper with you" or whatever) and dismissing it as clingyness is a total disregard of Nova's emotional needs. Nova's not clingy, she's not spoiled, she is TERRIFIED that her mom will walk away for good, and the adults in her life are doing a piss-poor job understanding that mindset and doing anything to help foster faith they will stick around. Tyler listening to Cate's plan to buy a pony and landing on the reaction that he will "trust" her decision sure felt like a defeated man accepting his fate. I'm sure Tyler "trusts" that if Cate loses interest in the pony, he'll be the one to take care of it, just like he does everything else (do we ever see Cate cooking or cleaning like we do Tyler?). I can't believe how proud Cate was of herself for waiting a couple days to purchase the pony when it's clear her mind was made up from the initial conversation. Cate seems unable to think beyond her immediate desires and Tyler no longer seems to have the energy to keep her in check. A happy marriage this is not.

    Jax sharing scenes today with Robert (who was defending Robin!) AND Curtis is the kind of content I like to see. Now if they could incorporate Drew into the scene instead of just referring to his off-screen conversations with Jax, that'd be great. Though TBH, it does kind of suck that Curtis is only there reluctantly digging up dirt because he needs the money. That P.I. business with Sam really disappeared into thin air, huh? Considering New Nina has a very different vibe from Old Nina, I'd love it if the writing for her would begin to shift. Less of the immaturity towards Willow and more competence regarding Crimson would be appreciated. So far I think the new actress plays better with Jax than Valentin, but it's still early days. I laughed at the decision to have riffraff Dev wolfing down food while pretty, perfect Joss had nothing but a grapefruit in front of her. Dev's inclusion as a distraction for Joss and her probable new love interest just seems unnecessary, especially since Cam is around. He's got the perfect foundation for a story with Joss and the most important quality that we already care about him. But if the show went that route then they'd be breaking the cardinal rule of making everything about Sonny as much as possible, so we're stuck with Dev, sadly.

    Kevin getting his job reinstated didn't seem like a big deal considering how little impact the loss of his job has had. Outside of his brief court case, it had no bearing on Kevin's story these past few months. Really, the job issue was just a loose end that needed tying up to center Kevin and keep him and Laura on the path to happiness (and I am glad to see them happy). I've had my fill of Jason/Sonny/Michael being so ridiculously controlling of Carly's behavior while pregnant. It's clearly supposed to be protective but comes across like they're putting a grown woman on a leash. It's Carly's body and baby and Carly's decision on how to care for it and I don't think it's funny to watch a bunch of men dictating her choices. And damn, what kind of message does it send that they feel free to monitor her so closely only when she's pregnant? No matter how much I love Chase, I didn't like him proudly listing Sonny and Jason's contributions to "Wiley's Army." Even if he doesn't condone their methods he's sure willing to appreciate them so long as it's benefiting his girlfriend. Since Chase is genuinely such a great guy, I'd really prefer a greater demarcation between him and Sonny's ilk.

    S08.E03: Blessings Not Baggage

    You know this show is scraping the bottom of the barrel when there's an extended segment of nothing but Amber and Matt meandering through L.A. traffic. Seriously, how much more tedious can it get? The only thing of note to happen was the birth of cuter-than-her-name Vaeda, and even that got bogged down in repetitive Butch drama. Actually, maybe that whole traffic scene is a good metaphor for the show in general: we're endlessly stuck spinning our wheels with these people and getting fucking nowhere. And since I'm here, I'm going to complain again about Mackenzie and her transparent as glass motives. She's going weeks without visiting her husband in jail not because it's "gross" (which, yeah, that's why it's called jail and not the spa) but because she's in this marriage for the TV show, not the man. I think it suits her just fine to go to lunch with friends and the camera crew and talk about how sad she is about the sin while doing the bare minimum to support Ryan. I'm sure she is upset by Ryan's problems since obviously the circumstances are not ideal, but as Ryan's wife she needs to show him some compassion and not retreat from visitations or stick her nose up in the air and dismiss what he's going through as "gross."

    How sad for Sam that she got dressed up in a cute little blouse (and in color!) for a date with Jason, who's dressed in last decade's jeans and black tee, only for her date to be derailed by Carly and a discussion of Shiloh within five seconds of arrival. I'm not complaining, though, since I'll take endless chatter and the phony Sam/Carly friendship over Sam and Jason sleepwalking their way through anything romantic. LMAO that Michael reassured Willow of the illustrious power of Diane Miller by pointing out that she's the reason Sonny and Carly are walking free. Yes, Willow, your problems are small potatoes compared to those felonious assholes. I just wish Willow had a little more autonomy in this situation instead of allowing Michael to flex his muscles and walk her through things. It's feeling less like she's leaning on a supportive friend and more like she's a damsel who can't act without someone holding her hand. The only stories not relating to Shiloh/Wiley today were Curtis and Jordan's medical woes (which is more realism than I'd like in my soap) and Lucy and Joss playing ghost whisperer (which is too silly to speak of). After nearly a fucking YEAR since the baby switch and with Shiloh now eating a bulk of the show, I'm so ready for the truth to come out and for something else to take prominence.

    Oh my GOD Jordan doing better detective work in a half hour from her hospital bed than she ever has before and the ensuing black-and-white flashbacks was fantastically ridiculous. That "meeting in progress" sign as the co-conspirators look at each other shiftily like this is Murder on the Orient Express instead of GH, fucking please. Don't get me wrong, I still hate what they did to Ryan (and hate that so many involved are medical professionals who should know better), but this whole silly sequence had me rolling. And it just goes to show that characters are only dumb when the plot requires them to be, since Jordan was able to piece the whole thing together without pinpointing evidence against Curtis. This allows everyone to skate legally while still leaving them open to Ryan's revenge, which should be more fun, anyway (his horrified reaction when it hit him that Kevin impersonated him was SO good, I love how JL plays Ryan).

    S08.E01: Walking on Eggshells

    Mackenzie glaring reproachfully as Ryan ordered a beer while baby Jagger sat by innocently was such a depressing tableau. What kind of future will this kid have with those two as his parents? Ryan needs to commit to complete sobriety, full stop, and Mackenzie needs to knock it off with the mealy-mouthed "I didn't sign up to be a single mother" plea for sympathy. She knew Ryan was an addict when she married him and knew he was an addict when they conceived Jagger. I firmly believe she turned a blind eye to Ryan's problems and pushed forward with creating this family so that she could get a slice of the MTV pie (which is also while she and Ryan are filming again after quitting last year). I can't feel sorry that she's shouldering parental duties because she's married to a man bouncing between jail and rehab; I feel angry that she knowingly brought a kid into this mess without thinking about the impact it would have on his life. Jagger deserves two present parents, but that's not going to happen unless Ryan gets it together and Mackenzie prioritizes her kid's wellbeing over a TV show.

    I'm disappointed in everyone who participated in the ruse to steal Ryan's kidney, especially Curtis. How does he think Jordan is going to feel when she finds out the circumstances of her transplant? And Kevin violated Ryan to suit his own purposes, which is exactly what Ryan did to his victims, meaning they're not so far removed as Kevin might like to believe. No matter Kevin's good intentions, it is not his call to play God and manipulate a situation at the expense of another human's life. Michael is so damn lucky Sasha listened to that rambling spiel of insecurity and self-depreciation and STILL agreed to go to Martha's Vineyard with him. I just hope Sasha can beat the odds of Michael's track record with women and not wind up dead, tbh. It will come as a surprise to no one that Nina and Maxie dumping all over Ava had me rolling up my sleeves to defend her. No one can deny the terrible things Ava's done but it takes a STAGGERING amount of nerve to call her "poisonous" in the same breath as saying stealing Avery from the womb was a chance to "learn" and "rebuild." It's also incredibly gross for Nina to say that because Ava and Kiki had a complicated relationship that Ava's grief isn't genuine. It's sick that Nina and Maxie are maligning Ava for her sins and simultaneously exploiting them for the sake of their precious Crimson.

    It's such a hollow victory to see Shiloh arrested when it's only happening due to Jason distorting the truth (whatever Shiloh's intent, he did not sexually assault Sam, and she consented to the tattoo and spiked drink) and Sonny blackmailing Margaux. Jason's follow-up comment to Michael that he dreams about murdering Shiloh made me bristle, too. "Here's one for the good guys," really, are we sure? The line between good and bad is so blurred on GH that I don't see much reason to celebrate. Sexual assault is unequivocally wrong, yet murder and blackmail are acceptable tools of the trade. Sam can scoff in disdain at Julian's reference to his criminal past, yet she'll eagerly go to bed with Jason each night. The show's muddled cesspool of criminality has made it so that when someone actually goes down for their crimes, it draws attention to the fact that there are plenty of other characters with misdeeds only forgiven due to their preferential status. The distinction between good and bad is irrelevant; everyone is awful but only some are chosen.

    Jax activating the inferiority complex of both Valentin and Sonny just on the sheer virtue of his existence is so much fun for me. He's just out there doing his business, looking at real estate, hanging with his kid, nothing extraordinary, yet these two tools are so very threatened. Really speaks to the quality of men they are that they can't handle a decent dude living his best life. Lord bless Alexis for finally coming out and saying that she resents Kristina for being a mob apologist asshole. She's taken so many emotional beatings from Kristina that she has every right to be upset with her daughter. Also, I like Neil and hope whatever is happening with him manages to not be disappointing/stupid. Finn and Kevin can justify doing the wrong thing for the right reasons all they want, but that doesn't make what they're doing okay. Ryan doesn't owe Jordan a kidney just because he's a match. Jordan isn't entitled to Ryan's kidney because she's a law-abiding citizen and he's not. Finn and Kevin are supposed to practice medicine honestly and ethically, it's not up to them to deem one life more deserving than another.

    "[Jason moving in] is something I have been thinking about ever since I was in my hospital bed and I opened my eyes and I saw you standing there. I mean, things were just really confusing for me, and you gave me the time I needed." Wait, what? It doesn't make sense for this to be referring to Sam's hospitalization from the Shiloh stuff, so Sam must mean that when Jason was newly returned to PC, when she was still with Drew, that she wanted Jason to move in with her. Which is utter bullshit. There's no need for Sam to make these ridiculous grandiose statements to support her relationship with Jason, especially since it flies in the face of the reality of Sam's emotions at the time (she was genuinely torn up over breaking up with Drew). I hate how the show resorts to these tactics (along with that fucking song playing in the background) to sell us on the inevitability of JaSam. New Danny looks less like Jason but seems like he may be a more comfortable actor. How convenient that Scout was left at the Quartermaine mansion so we could see the family unit of Sam/Jason/Danny. Honestly, Scout just stay at Monica's Group Home for Invisible Children (tree house coming Summer 2019), with her actual father, and let Jason and Sam play happy family with Danny, since he only exists as a tent pole for their love anyway.

    Jax cheerfully rolling into Sonny's house and telling him to his face that he hates him and will never bend the knee to him was a fucking delight. I'm not so eager for the property wars Sonny wants to incite between them (grow up, dude, you can't literally own all of PC), but I'm down for Jax throwing his weight around and never letting Sonny forget he sucks. Nina is working overtime in an attempt to take Carly's crown as Most Insufferable Character. Showing up at Willow's classroom simply to bully her about her personal life is unjustifiable. It's one of those cases where I can't imagine how we're supposed to think her behavior is passable, and yet it just keeps escalating. It was nice to see Willow's pledge returned to her. After what she's been through, I think having that pledge back will give her the sense of agency and control over her own story that she deserves.

    S09.E20 Reunion Part 2

    Jenelle: "[This season has been hard] because there's so many good things happening at my house. And everyone's getting along. And it really sucks that no one can see it." Oh, don't worry, girl, we're all getting a clear look into your home life and how good things truly are. Watching this in the context of the turmoil of Jenelle's current problems makes everything seem more pathetic. She can admit David's done things that upset her but because he's her husband, she feels obligated to defend him no matter the cost. Her tears are so performative, like she and David are just ordinary folk being unfairly targeted, and sadly I think that she may really believe that. I think abusive, toxic relationships are her normal, and she knows no other way of living. I think she's only marginally less cruel than David, and doesn't view his actions as vile as everyone else does. I think she's loyal to David not just because he's her husband, but because she thrives in misery and playing the victim. Her life is an out of control bonfire of dysfunction at this point, and after years of MTV stoking the flames, it's a relief to know that this part, this glimpse of depravity masked as entertainment, will finally be extinguished from our TV screens.

    Sam's tears and overdramatic flashbacks and clinging to Jason was way too much today. She went into this situation with Shiloh with her eyes wide open, knowing exactly what would happen, and calmly insisted that she could handle it. She can be upset in the aftermath, but the implication that she's been severely victimized is gross. My sympathies are for Willow and anyone else who was genuinely manipulated by Shiloh and didn't have a Jason to storm in and save them, not for Sam. Lulu hovering around Chase like a bothersome gnat was balanced out by her epic "oh no, she DIDN'T" face at Lucy's rudeness to Laura. Seriously, Lucy needs to go far, far away until she can handle an appropriate relationship with Kevin. I legit screeched in surprise when Ava lunged out with that knife. I had been thinking that it was all too easy for Ryan to peaceably surrender and allow Curtis to harvest his kidney (just 'cause he's a serial killer doesn't mean he won't have to give consent to an organ donation, Curtis), so Ava getting the jump on Ryan was a nice unexpected treat. For once, show, you did good.

    S09.E19: Season 9 Reunion Part 1

    Ugh, they're seriously stretching this shit out for three full weeks? The fuck? As charming as Addie undoubtedly is, I question the logic of giving her her own Q&A segment on the show via video chat. Seems like the kind of attention that could easily go to a kid's head. I hope Leah and Jeremy know when to pump the brakes a little so that Addie understands she doesn't actually know more than the adults, and sometimes her precociousness needs to take a back seat. Are we all in agreement that Kail only came to the reunion to pimp her hair care products? Get that money while you can, I guess. I hated hearing about Devoin's drunken escapade with the kids around. Devoin seems so natural with Nova that I can't help but root for him. I don't want him to be some sort of weird inverted version of Ryan (TM OG): a decent dad but with substance abuse issues standing in the way. My problem with Nessa's discussion with Jenelle was the context she framed it in--that it was the same sort of "betrayal" between friends that Amber pulled on Jenelle. That's really not a comparable situation. Jenelle has known Nessa a fraction of the time she's known Amber, and I highly doubt they've spent any significant one-on-one time together outside of that reunion stage. It's hard to justify Nessa's belief that Jenelle knew her comments would be personally offensive to Nessa yet didn't care, as I don't think Nessa is on Jenelle's radar at all. I wish Nessa had broached the topic under the broader framework of SM in general, and emphasized that if you're going to spew your insensitive and racially charged opinions for the world, expect clapback. For all her big talk on the Internet, Jenelle sure is quick to run and hide the moment anyone stands up to her, and kudos to Nessa for her composure in calling Jenelle out (where has this Nessa been hiding, and can she stick around?).

    I really wasn't feeling either of the musical numbers today. That opener starring Felix, Amy, and Not Amy would mean more if we saw any of those people more than once in a blue moon. It kind of just emphasizes how limited and marginalized the hospital and its staff are currently. And while Chase and Willow are adorable, I don't like that Coldplay song so it was a miss for me, too. I'm glad Mike and Yvonne didn't put up a fuss with the ring swap, and I felt a little sorry for Robert when Anna laid into him. Unless I'm misreading him, I don't think he ever thought he'd win Anna away from Finn, more that he felt slightly threatened by seeing Anna's bond with Finn and didn't handle it gracefully. But whatever, it's time for Finn to do the damn thing. Unless that llama is secretly Bran warging in from Westeros, I don't see any need for its reappearance this year. Cam sure acted his heart out with it, though.

    Real talk, how much of that awkward-city red carpet was intentional and how much was ineptitude? The bumbling with the microphones and forgetting to point them at the person speaking and shuffling around trying to find the camera was more annoying than funny. Nina accidentally (I guess?) bumping her hand into Sydney's hair and then petting it was weird, too. Best part was Scott straight-up plowing through that shit to get to the other side. Nina is wholly undeserving of Jax's charms but I loved how starstruck she was by him, 'cause fucking SAME. He looked incredible. No disrespect to Valentin (or to JPS, actually) but putting Valentin next to Jax is like comparing a finger-painting to a Monet. It's just not a fair match. Liz looked lovely, albeit slightly bridesmaid-y; Maxie and Lulu looked the best I can remember seeing them lately; Ava's look was age-appropriate with an edge; Nina was downright demure compared to some of the other stuff she wears; and then there was Sam, bursting at the seams. Put those things away before someone gets hurt, girl.
  19. An excellent end to a strong season! "Suicide Squad" was definitely the better episode overall and was full of good stuff. Poor eternally dumb CJ sucking on popsicles, fucking up the kidnapping (Amy, Charles, and Jake's shared reaction of dismay was GOLD), and just wanting someone to play Madden with him made me laugh. Jake chiming in with "yeah!" and "all right!" during Wunch's reveal of the successful plan, despite being unable to see or hear the conversation, was adorably enthusiastic and such a Jake thing to do. And Holt humbling himself on traffic duty after thoroughly disparaging Wunch's character seems pretty deserving to me (I love Holt but yeesh, his no-holds-barred approach to Wunch is rough, especially since she was on his team). I feel like Terry facing a potential transfer to Staten Island only to be saved at the last minute is a meta parallel for the show's cancellation and subsequent revival. His "quietly self-destructive" panic at the thought of missing out on 99 shenanigans was a very familiar sentiment. We're so lucky that NBC has given B99 and its sweet, quirky, intelligent, diverse characters a new home in which they can be nurtured and thrive.

    That "Curtis disappeared!" fake out which was immediately undone after the commercial break was such a meager effort at generating tension that I don't know why they even bothered. Also, amazing that Curtis can identify the contents of an upside down newspaper from half a room away yet needs Laura to spell out for him that the situation they're walking into is no bueno. Marcus perpetually has such a chip on his shoulder that it's hard for me to feel sorry for him, even though he's stuck in a complicated set of circumstances in which no one is the bad guy. Stella's ability to smooth out the turbulence is really the only thing I appreciate in a story that otherwise makes me uncomfortable (how's Mike going to feel when he has to return that ring?). "The baby is fine." Dammit, Epiphany, I'm trying real hard not to shoot the messenger here. (I know this baby is happening and I should accept it, but a girl can still hope.)

    I was feeling Oscar's memorial today on a lot of fronts: Monica looking badass in her sunglasses, Cam's touching speech, FINALLY a conversation between Drew/Sam acknowledging Scout as their daughter, and even St. Sonny the wise didn't grate. But please, I beg the show to stop pushing the "Drew and Jason are BROTHERS, they're going to build a tree house together, whee!" nonsense down our throats. Neither one of them cares enough about the other to be adversarial or to be close, and that's okay. They can interact around Monica but it's so disingenuous to behave as if they're ever going to be brotherly. All in all, this memorial was way better than the other Gone Before Their Time memorials we got for Morgan and Kiki, though that's in large part due to Oscar actually being a decent person. Kim broke my heart a little, saying goodbye to Oscar on her own just as she brought him into the world by herself. TB has consistently been hitting all the right notes as a grieving parent.

    S06.E16: Cinco de Mayo

    This was unquestionably the best episode of the season. It's brilliant that they gave us the fan-favorite Heist with a legitimate reason for it happening in May instead of October. They could have skipped it all together, or shown it as a flashback, but instead they crafted it as a long-con in a way that played out beautifully. Over the years Terry has so often been relegated to dramatic whining about one thing or another, so letting him shine (figuratively and literally, hee!) by being the mastermind of everything was terrific payback. It was all perfectly improbable in true Brooklyn Nine-Nine fashion. I also appreciate that though everyone's personality is ratcheted up a hundred notches during the Heist in a way that borders on the edge of too mean, it's always balanced with humor and the knowledge that it's happening in the spirit of competition. A married couple secretly finding ways to tase each other works due to Jake and Amy existing on the same ruthless wavelength. Jake sacrificing his partnership with Terry so he could hog the glory with his custom banner is leveled out with the reveal that Terry sold him the banner to begin with and has a banner of his own. The show knows exactly how to exaggerate everyone's behavior without crossing the line into uncomfortable territory. And on top of all this goodness we got Cheddar AND Kevin. Truly two necessary components to the recipe for a perfect episode.

    Jason and Sam holding hands in the Quartermaine mansion with nary a word or thought about Drew/Oscar felt like a big "fuck you" from the show to anyone who expects Sam to care about her ex and her daughter's brother. If they'd just temper the Shiloh stuff with anything indicating Sam has genuine concern for what Drew's going through instead of keeping them completely removed from each other, I wouldn't be so upset. As it is, I hope Drew takes Scout and heads for Kilimanjaro and doesn't look back. Mike making off with someone else's ring is better than him walking away with someone else's child, so, progress? It is frustrating to watch Robert act childish and not return the damn thing to Finn already, though. He's entitled to his feelings about Anna and Peter but the ring deal feels needlessly petty. Wait, did Michael continue to hang out with Alexis to score Kristina's leftover frittata? CEO of ELQ, son of the most powerful families in town, taking advantage of a free meal, hee. (I did like their chat and enjoy when the show leans into Michael's old man aesthetic of preferring the company of people older than him.)

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I'm fucking thrilled that she's been fired, but my question is why the hell did it take so long? Why didn't it happen a year ago when MTV fired David instead of continuing to air her defense of him? Why didn't it happen during any of the CPS investigations? Why didn't it happen when Jenelle was filmed putting Jace in danger during her road rage incident? Why did it take an innocent animal losing its life for the network to decide Jenelle was a liability whose presence on the show could no longer be justified? MTV deserves no credit for finally making the right call after years of closing their eyes and sticking their fingers in their ears when it comes to Jenelle's deplorable actions.

    LMAO at Anna's no fucks given attitude at the idea that Peter isn't her kid. She was so distraught when she thought Robin might not be hers, but with Peter she doesn't even need to wait for confirmation, she's just like "yep, that tracks, and phew, no Faison sex, #bulletdodged." JAX! It definitely sucked that he came in and immediately started praising Carly and Jason, but then it turned into him dissing Carly's lack of kindness and I got hyped again. Plus, we got confirmation that Jax has had daily conversations with Joss and is totally up to date with her life. On a show where bare-minimum parenting is the norm, particularly by fathers, I love that Jax is involved even when he's on the other side of the world. Sonny: "I'm so glad my status as a crime boss means I can abuse every letter of the law and also the rights of my family members." Kristina: "Don't forget the word 'alleged,' dad, and thanks!" How heartwarming. Jason's super dramatic "ruh roh" face when he encountered the locked DoD door made me laugh. Like oh no, he's going to have to exert more force than twisting a door knob to save Sam, what a setback. She might get stuck with a fugly tattoo, better give it some muscle!
