The Ava storyline has been the highlight for me this week. There is actually a smidgen of complexity being presented, unintentional and fleeting though it may be. Ava is caught in an interesting dilemma, one that I can ponder during the commercial breaks. She is caught between not trusting Steve and yet knowing that if her plan to get him back is to have any measure of success, she will have to find a way to trust him somehow. How would I handle it if I had Steve Johnson locked up in a room … and that’s where I lose my train of thought.
Hope pretending to be Kayla has been all kinds of fun. I also like the mystery of Ava not being able to remember something that happened right before Steve left her at the altar. Here’s hoping that there’s something else to explain her descent into madness besides the hot guy leaving her. And of course I am enjoying Kayla being determined to go after Steve the Lone Wolf and help him. Stupid problem pregnancy! Now I can’t get the picture out of my head of Kayla and Bo smooshed together in a wheelchair, blundering around the Vitale mansion together.
Ava, Steve, and Stephanie now all have the exact same hair color. It’s eerie.
I can no longer make any assessment of Chloe’s storyline, her character, her lines, or Nadia Bjorlin’s acting, because I have been hypnotized by her cleavage.
Good dialogue alert!
Nicole (to Sami): You look like … you just had twins.
Today was excruciating from a Chick fan perspective. I think I might have PTSD from the Jett triangle and today I was having bad trip flashbacks. Chelsea gushing and seeking approval about a coffeeshop. And why would Dr. McPederasty ask Chelsea to show him the sights of Salem anyway? (“And here’s where Marlena’s exorcism took place …”) He just heard that a) she has a big crush on him and b) he went out of his way to emphasize that they are only friends. And then his condescending remark to Nick that girls love it when you get territorial. Nice.
