Okay, so my co-blogger established that Lisa is an off-putting, confusing, wreck of a character. So why is it that we are supposed to believe she and Patrick still have something between them? Because Matt SAID so?
I know I’ve said this before, but having a character say something doesn’t make it so, writers!
Where the hell is the build up? We randomly see Lisa with Matt on Christmas Eve and now we’re supposed to imagine — what? That they had a fling, started spending time together, Matt realized she still had a thing for Patrick, and is now disgruntled — all of this off-screen? WTF? Why are they doing this to Jason Cook? It’s a travesty. Seriously.
Although considering how awful Lisa is, it’s probably better for my blood pressure that we didn’t get to see those wonderful scenes.
Are we really supposed to be buying into this looming threat of Lisa? With Patrick and Robin having an amazing Christmas and anniversary? With them all happy and cuddly at New Years?

It makes me irate. I could be blissfully enjoying one of the most sweet, endearing couples on day time, but no. Guza & Co. are blatantly telling me something stupid is coming down the pike. If this was any other show, I’d consider this a fake out — a drama inducing red herring, if you will. But I can’t con myself into believing that. These writers don’t do plot twists, unless it’s a character randomly coming back from the dead.
I can’t imagine it will be any major shake up, but after the insanity that was the PPD story I’m just tired of it all. Let Patrick and Robin be the one steady center of this otherwise mob-infested, chaotic crapfest. Pretty please?
P.S. Keep letting Jonathan Jackson sing because it makes me feel like a fourteen-year-old girl again:
P.P.S. For the sake of nostalgia, here’s the original Liz and Lucky moment:
If only we could erase the last year of Nik/Liz. If only…
