…but now so does Ron Carlivati.
Seriously, this was probably the single best episode of this year. And that’s following the face melting! Why, is it so good, you ask?
It’s almost impossible to count all the reasons, but here goes:
1) The quiet grief that Jason Thompson has so perfectly executed for the last few months. This man breaks my heart with just the look in his eye. It kills me!
2) Anna and Duke together again. For reals this time, you guys! I don’t think I was ever invested in them back in the day, but the shared looks and Ian Buchanan’s clear body language change as real Duke got to me. Kudos to both actors for making that reunion a great payoff.
And when he called Robin “bonnie lass” after hearing the news of her death? I wanted to give him a cookie and a hug.
3) Lulu and Dante’s baby making. It sounds dirty, and it was a little campy, but mostly just sweet and uber-endearing. This is the Dante and Lulu I love. I’m rooting for them so bad, you guys! The latest speculation about what these dumb-ass Olivia visions mean makes me want to stick a fork in my eye, so I’m going to take my co-blogger’s approach and pretend that it isn’t happening. Lalalalala.
4) Holy crap, you guys. Robert found Robin!
I was screaming at the tv for someone to save Robin and then Robert found her! And then I was screaming for Robert to get that damned syringe. I’m unspoiled so I’m crossing my fingers that Robert was only knocked out and that Faison’s plan wasn’t to kill Robin, but make her disappear. This is such a suspenseful way of dragging this out! I’m on the edge of my effing seat here people.
I can’t wait for tomorrow!! I can’t use enough exclamation points to convey my excitement!!!!
All this happiness is causing me to have an identity crisis. Who am I without my snark?
