Oh, kittens. Very few soapy things in this world make me happier than the sight of this bright, beautiful, totally nutso face on my tv screen:
NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN, BABY!
So, Heather’s back! My world is complete once more! And she’s in Llanview, which means TÉA! and BABY DRAMA! and all sorts of goodness to come.
(Oh, and there was a whole lot of Sam/Jason schmoopy fantasyland, which isn’t really my cup of tea, but more power to those for who are into that kind of thing! I did enjoy seeing everyone so happy for once, and I appreciated the Sam/Alexis and Monica/Jason scenes — as well as our second AJ reference in as many weeks. CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER.)
But before all that, RC was nice enough to balance the scales with even more Liz/Jason and Sam/John action and sweet holy hell they were hot:
I mean, really! How’s a girl supposed to cope with John cradling Sam’s face and giving her the sex eyes? Or Jason doing that old school thing where he just knows that Liz is upset even though she’s trying hide it and he looks all intense while he comforts her. How?
(Well, if you’re this girl, you drink another glass of wine and flail your hands around excitedly making embarrassing high pitched cooing noises. Don’t judge! I have needs! Sexy needs!)
Although there was this bit of eye-rolling hilarity thrown in:
ELIZABETH: You know what’s ironic? That everyone kept telling me how wonderful Ewen was… and that you were this killer. Turned out it was the other way around.
Well, half of that statement is true! (Liz, I love you, truly. But Jason’s business card literally says ‘KILLER FOR HIRE.’ He just finished KILLING A MAN right in front of you. Come on.)
Of course, she was just about to admit her interest in Ewen was a distraction from someone else (I WONDER WHO?) when Sam and John came in, leading to some bonus action from the pairing that dare not speak it’s name — aka my sweet, sweet SIZZLE:
Can these two to become flirty frenemies who go on Jason-less adventures together when Steve Burton leaves? Please? It was so
hot refreshing the last time that happened:
::happy sigh:: Oh, ladies. Be still my big, old, sappy, gay heart.
In other news, Kirsten Storms is back! Which is awesome both because it means her health has improved and because I really missed her Maxie. Jen Lilley was lovely and did a great job in an difficult situation with some truly awful material, and I’d be happy to see her back on the show in another role, but Storms’ Maxie is a little more brittle and less ditzy and I’m looking forward to having her back:
Her quiet regret with Patrick was lovely — using her first scenes to revisit Robin’s death was a wise way for Storms’ Maxie to make a connection with that story. I’m less crazy about the Spinelli revisit today, which I sincerely do not want (but with little hope) to be a sign of things to come. God, those two need more time apart. MUCH, MUCH, MUCH MORE TIME APART.
Still — Maxie! Heather! Téa! It’s going to be a good Friday. I can feel it.
