Episode Discussion: TFGH

Recommended Posts

It continues to annoy me to no end that after a year away from PC, Laura rolled into town and threw her hat into the mayoral campaign and automatically had the main players tripping over themselves to support her candidacy, leaving Ned in the dust. Now even Olivia thinks it wouldn't be a bad thing if Ned lost. I like Laura, but damn. There's no need to skew things so thoroughly in her favor (including Spencer and his chicanery). 

Not sure if the Dante mentions are just a placeholder for now until the show decides to recast, or if it's meant to remind us that Lulu is lonely and unhappy and thus might seek connection with another man. What I am sure of is that Girl Reporter Lulu is an insufferable uppity twit. Don't act like you're a model of integrity and transparency for your readers when you're stealing police info without permission, girl. 

Sam and Carly talking about Oscar wasn't awful, though Sam's attempt at emoting sadness was...truly something. Watch that scene with no sound, you might think she's worrying about where she left her keys, not her daughter's older brother DYING. Anyway, Sam and Carly hanging out was just an excuse for Carly to later act smug about Sam leaving to see Jason. JaSam being yet another feather in Carly's cap is high on the reasons I hate them.

Was Carly being especially smug on purpose or was that just her face when she told Sam to tell Jason hello as Sam was leaving?

Oh but did you see the look of absolute excitement on Sam's face at the prospect of seeing her true wuv?

She always either looks glum or shocked that Jason is said in her presence or people think they are together (why would she be shocked considering she spends 90% of her scenes with him, no clue).

But yes, stellar expressions all the time from KeMo!

Yeah, I like Laura, but her being trumpeted as the righteous choice given this election is only happening because of the ELECTION FRAUD her grandson committed that was covered up BY THE TOWN MOB BOSS really sticks in my craw.  Poor Ned.

I'm not one for plot lines to linger on forever with no logical pacing or conclusion (see: Mike, the Baby swap, Ryan, just to name a few) but did Sam and Jason seriously sit down with a laptop and a copy of Shilo's version of Dianetics and figure out all the tentacles of this thing, complete with doodle, in twenty minutes? Seriously? I mean I know Google is a handy tool but, come on. I'm the last one to sign up for Jasam hijinks since I loathe the sight of them, but they couldn't have them go a few places first, follow some clues, ask some more people questions before landing on 10 revelations at once? Shiloh was just revealed all of two days ago. Soaps aren't the gig they used to be, but there has to be thousands of struggling writers out there that would be grateful to cobble together a better show than what we have now.

And of course Sam is at the center of this. I can't wait to watch her whisper and zombie act through even more scenes! There was the big revelation that this guy is the son of one of your first "marks" and it was like Jason told her they were out of milk. I caaaaaaan't. 

I rag on BM all the time because he's always such a pill in every scene but when Terry told them that Oscar's treatment didn't take I think he did a good job. The rest of the episode not so much but I thought he looked appropriately bewildered and devastated by the news. Eden was also on point when they told Oscar in the hospital room. Her expressions said it all. 

Who is Eden?

Not to mention, her entire campaign was about Ferncliffe, which ISN'T EVEN SOMETHING IN PC'S JURISDICTION.

It must be nice being Billy Miller showing up 10 minutes before an episode ends and earning a paycheck for a day's work.

His stuff was good today.  Cameron would fit more as Drew's son than Oscar.

I know I'm a day late to this but...Oscar's tumor.  Didn't they say it's 9cm in diameter?  Shouldn't it be causing problems for him by now?  Headaches, dizziness, confusion, personality changes, problems with his vision, whatever else a brain tumor could cause? Because 9cm is pretty big. Or did they say 9mm - in which case, I wouldn't think he could die in the "possibly weeks" that Drew mentioned. 

I wish I cared more about this story. But I just don't.  We have a teenager dying of a brain tumor, an elderly man dying of Alzheimer's, a serial killer roaming around - whatever happened to "love in the afternoon"?  This is a big pile of depressing.

Oscar hasn't had one symptom outside of a headache and one seizure and he's had this tumor on screen hidden or not for over a year.  This show doesn't even try.  They don't even make Oscar look tired by adding some black circles under his eyes. Nothing. He just mopes and acts dopey.

I have, but as you say, they've been fired.

While she's not my cup of tea, she's a good actress. I think she needs a solid 6 month break, maybe even just 3 would give her a jolt.

She's hardly the only one of course.

She was terrible for 2018 and it's continuing into 2019.  She was ok yesterday I guess with showing some emotion over dopey Oscar and when she raised her voice at Kristina last week.  But that's all I can pull from her scenes so far.  Nothing's going.

Cam is a star. He elevates everyone he is in a scene with. That was the most life I've seen out of BM in ages. Same for emo Oscar. Can they have him visit Sam?!?! They need to shift the focus of the show to Cam while they are lucky enough to have him, cuz he will totally Jonathon Jackson his way onto bigger things.

He's a good actor, makes Garren look extra terrible.  They've set Cameron up pretty well I think once Oscar croaks (hopefully).

But I think BM has been better the past three days on his own, he's putting more effort in than usual. I have to imagine how sad it is for Scam that she tossed Drew aside overnight for a man who looks older than her dad and who can't dress himself.  The contrast with Drew showing up in court today to Jason is just laughable.

And Dante is his uncle by marriage (and his cousin lol).

I remember scenes of Lucky rebuking Nik about his parenting of Spencer way before Sonny took note of Spencer at all. 

It annoyed me when Sonny told Lulu not to be afraid to kick Dante's butt. Yeah, maybe Lulu should give him a little love bullet to keep him in line.

Ah Olivia, I get it now.  I spent forever trying to figure out why Rocco would be at the Q mansion when Lulu said that.  I mean, I get that the mansion is now PC daycare centre, what with Scout and Danny basically living there, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out Rocco's reason.  But Olivia's his grandmother and she lives at the mansion with Ned.  Thank you.

So it took me a while to figure out why Lulu had dumped her son at the Qs yesterday, because I forgot that Olivia was his nonna and that she was married to Ned. The Q mansion has officially turned into a daycare center was my first thought. Count me in as someone else who was confused by the whole thing.

I think they're getting ready to bring in a recast Dante. 

For the love of all that is sacred, someone should tell LW to stop giggling in her scenes. It is unnatural!!!

Ugh...I don't hate Sonny and actually sometimes kind of love him but the tounge bath his ass got from Laura yesterday is the exact same shit always made me resent him . Its phony baseless propping that Sonny has always depended on. Sonny is best when shown being a sweet caring dad like with Kristina sometimes or caring after Mike or kinda/sort saying he's sorry to Margaux in the graveyard..there it's character based, its shown, not told and Mo works the hell out of those scenes. Baseless kiss ups from the Pure and Sweet Fairy godmother of GH just to give the mobster a seal of approval just make him less likeable. But his zombie-d out lovers eat that shit up with a spoon.

Is there supposed to be some big suspense as to who is going to win the election?  It's clearly going to be Laura and I think the fact that they have everyone in town losing it over how great Laura is and no one on Ned's side shows just how clueless the writers are.  Can they not drum up some characters or even random extras to say that they like Ned? Way to be completely transparent, GH.  Heck, at this point,if we get shocked and Ned does win, you can expect it to later come out that there was voter fraud or something else that had him win (all while Spencer's tampering is forgotten).

Somewhat relatedly, I was thinking the other day I hate the current state of Ned and Alexis' relationship.  I really use to enjoy their friendship, that they still had a nice bond with each other after all these years, but the show systematically destroyed it over the past few years with Julian and Olivia and then having them compete in the mayoral race.

I was rolling my eyes yesterday at Carly and Sam's "sure, Ned has done awesome things for PC since being mayor--the economy is great and we've rebuilt since the earthquake...but, eh, who needs that?  We want you, Laura, who has given us no agenda other than finding out who a random patient is at Ferncliffe."

Today's version of the horrible new credits started with Maxie immediately followed by LWB/FS (which I suspect is why Maxie got to be first, UGH!), Sonny and Carly were like fifth and seventh, and Jason still at the end.  Also, Monica managed to slip in there.

I wonder how Maurice Bernard feels about his credit spot rotating while Steve Burton is always in the same spot...
