One Life To Live — The Last Wednesday
Even though a third of the eppy was wasted with Lumber and the Jack-o-tron, there was still enough soapy goodness to make me…cry (okay, I admitted it). I was not pleased that they killed Bobby yesterday, especially after they’d gone to all the trouble to make him triple-gorgeous the day before (that was either homage or sadism).
But that wasn’t why I started crying today. The Starr-James thing got to me. I didn’t expect James himself to start bawling, and I guess it was contagious. Killer goodbye scene.
And then the big surprise was how moving he Mumbles-Natalie thing was. I liked their apologies to each other. But then when they started macking in that one room apartment, and were moving toward the bed as they stripped — well, did anybody else wonder if they were gonna be humping on top of little Uber-Gerber? I mean, they put the baby down two scenes earlier — so where else is he, if not on the bed. This means that John and Histrionica played Hide the McNugget while their baby was in the closet, bathroom, or fire escape. But then John said, “Natalie, I love you” in their afterglow, and I started crying again…regardless of whether Liam is in a dresser drawer or not.
Destiny came in to give BoNora some thank-you flowers, and ran into Matthew. I enjoyed watching all of BoNra’s reactions as Matthew acted like a passive little shit. But my favorite thing was — brace yourself — Destiny’s monologue to Matthew. I wholeheartedly recant my old opinion and admit that Destiny is now a damn good little actress. Great job, kid.
Looks like Shane and his folks are going to Really Good (perhaps even Great) Britain. (don’t let their dust get caught in your throat, Roxy.) And it also looks like “StarrFish” (ha) is about to blow town with some super recording contract or something (perhaps the soundtrack album to “The Boy with the Chipmunk Tattoo”?).
Yep, the peeps are starting to make their end-of-days departures. And I know I predicted wrong about them saving Ford instead of Squishy. But I really have this feeling — even though the actor denied it — that Victor Junior will be popping up in one of the last scenes on the last day.
And once again I have to thank this creative team — for Megan and Luna on Monday, for making me cry today, for whomever-the-hell s going to appear tomorrow (Marty and “Zack Slater,” anyone?), and for what I’m suspecting will be a Final Friday to remember.
