Well, I was disappointed we didn’t get that moment, where Bo walked into the party on Caroline’s arm and everyone gasped. I’d say it was strange all around, how they handled it. Victor and Kayla both found out he was back, but neither one of them expressed a desire to see him. WTF?
I know they needed Bo to be running back to the house to see Hope, and maybe if he saw everyone else first, they’d all be trying to stop him from interrupting the newlyweds. But wouldn’t that make it even more tense and dramatic? I don’t know, I think they could have handled it better.
Putting that aside for the moment, the Hope/Aiden struggle, and Bo’s rush back to the house, was great drama. I was on the edge of my seat. I thought Aiden wouldn’t attack her until the end of the episode, so I was glad it happened a little earlier. The wordless moment, when Hope pulled off Aiden’s hood, was a great reveal.
I predict that on Monday, Bo will be fighting with Aiden, and just when it looks like he’s losing the fight, “dead” Hope will grab the gun and shoot Aiden.
Theresa and Brady had sex! Very surprising. I liked the scenes when they had a bit of a heart to heart and then Theresa “pushed too far” by saying she loved him. But I thought Victor’s insults were over the top, almost abusive. And when Theresa saw Brady in her room, I was almost positive it was a fantasy sequence. But it wasn’t. I liked the fact that Brady said it was a mistake, as he slipped into bed with her, which shows that not all is well. But overall, it seemed a bit too soon.
Then, a couple of new plots were introduced, which this team seems to like to do on Fridays. John has backed out of two assignments for the ISA, so I can understand them being a little ticked off. The veiled threats, though, I think (I hope!) will tie in to what happened with Steve, and maybe Bo too. It shows that the ISA is willing to resort to threats to get cooperation from our guys, which is the only thing that makes sense to explain Steve leaving the way he did. Linking that up into an umbrella story with John and Bo is a great idea.
Did Steve get a haircut on the way to the hospital?
I’m feeling a little grumpy about Steve and Kayla. As I said above, Kayla found out about Bo and didn’t ask if he’s all right, or say she wants to see him. She did give Steve this great smile, though:
And she said, “I owe Caroline an apology.” Mary Beth made the most of that line, showing with her eyes that she knows Steve was right too, but not able to say it. But then we go right into this new story with Joey and whether or not he took drugs. Again, they are at odds, and again Steve expresses belief and Kayla expresses skepticism. I suspect that Steve is going to be right this time too. So, no hash-it-out conversation from this story we’ve been watching, and now straight on to the next one? Days, you gotta give me something here!
And, it’s pretty obvious that note is from Ava, no? That dashes my hopes that Ava was being brought back only to have another 40-something woman on the canvas. Sigh.
