I thought Greg Vaughan and Eric Martsolf were great in their scenes today. At first I was annoyed at Brady’s hypocrisy, given his own past addiction. But then he brought it up himself, saying this could have happened to him. More importantly, as he kept talking it became clear that he was trying to light a fire under Eric, make him direct his guilt into productive channels, instead of tearing himself up. But, this element was in addition to being truly angry with him over causing the accident. I thought it was a great balance.
Afterwards, I would have appreciated a few lines in his scene with Theresa about it, so we could see these twin motives more clearly. I would also like to see someone, anyone, ask themselves why Eric has been drinking so much lately, and why they didn’t notice. But, I’ll take what I can get.
Are they setting up Eric going back into the priesthood as he goes to jail? I hope not, but it does look like they are going to set up some kind of redemption for him. And I’m all for that.
I thought Ari was very good in her scenes with nuParker, who was surprisingly effective. I had to laugh at how Chloe, for the second time, handed over the hard parenting stuff to Nicole.
Of course, Parker looks eerily like Nicole. They even have the same hairdresser!
I didn’t do a post on yesterday’s show because I found the excessive grieving and eulogizing of Daniel really sad – and not sad in the way the show intends. Today that was toned down … a little. But how are they going to top all this grieving at the funeral? I foresee a huge funeral pyre, where, in a massive outpouring of grief, the whole town will throw themselves.
How hilarious was Nicole appearing in Brady’s dream in THIS dress:
If this is what Daniel is sending him in his subconscious, are we sure it was a heart transplant Brady got?
