My, my. Was Tuesday (12/12) a red letter day for Steve and Kayla fans? After 21 years, we got to see something I didn’t think we would ever see: Steve and Kayla in the act. In the Bluesmobile, no less. I thought the scenes were sweet and hot and funny. I loved how they were laughing at themselves, while obviously being into it at the same time. That’s how you show two older, happily married people in a love scene like this. Imagine what Dee and Drake would have done with this scene. On second thought … don’t.
I loved the mention of Shenanigans by name. It shows someone on the writing staff went the extra mile in paying attention to the little details. I loved that the Bluesmobile is an old Chevy, perfectly appropriate for Steven Earl Johnson. (I still haven’t gotten used to seeing him use a cell phone.)
And this gives me a good opportunity to talk about what Mary Beth Evans does with just a look. Here is her expression when Steve first mentions what they used to do in the parking lot at Shenanigans:
The line they give her a few minutes later, “I know what you’re doing and I love you for it,” is almost unnecessary. It’s all right there on her face.
And another great look, of course, is this one, when she walks into the Brady Pub after being caught in the act by Hope:
Speaking of great looks, who could resist this invitation?
