Jax was never my favorite, but I was pretty damn fond of him and I was pretty damn pissed about the way they wrote him out. So I may have squealed a bit when I saw Ingo Rademacher on Thursday.
We’ve lost so many characters that give me warm fuzzies! It’s nice to have one of them back, even if it may only be for a little while. And he was so sweet with his daughter! Also, Ingo Rademacher and Laura Wright continue to have good chemistry together. I find their dynamic refreshing, instead of uncomfortable and gross, like Carly and Johnny. (Did I mention I hate Carly and Johnny?)
I also may have been maniacally rubbing my hands together at the thought of Jax’s head exploding when he finds out that he left his daughter for her safety and she’s been spending her nights with Johnny Zacharra. And although Jax didn’t have the epic meltdown I was hoping he would have, his WTF face was still well worth it:
But as always with Port Charles, I have to pay for my glee with something, well, gross. It seems as though Tracy is going to being involved with yet another man who will treat her like crap. Good times! Sorry show, but I don’t have any interest in a meet cute and a tryst between a rapist and, well… anybody. But especially someone as awesome as Tracy. Just. Don’t.
And can we stop seeing her bend over backwards to do nice things for Luke? It’s getting tired, and Tracy is too amazing to continue doing this. So if she can have some meaningless sex and drop this jack-off, I’ll be okay with this situation for now. But I highly doubt that will happen. It just seems like Tracy is getting set up to get stomped on yet again. *sigh*
But hey, it looks like we might get some movement on the Robin’s fake death plot! And that makes me super excited. I can’t say that I am 100% happy with everything RC has been doing, but the plots aren’t overly drawn out. There is movement and that, my friends, makes this show a million times more interesting than it was last year at this time.
