I realize there’s been some pretty stiff competition in that category this week. I mean, he didn’t fall for the world’s most transparent lie and then shoot the wrong person in the chest, a la Shawn “Why is my boss standing in front of the target if he ordered this hit? Oh well, better shoot anyway” Butler.
But in the space of one episode, Morgan took part in the following conversations:
KIKI: Guess what? Last night, I met my super rich relatives. They’re fighting each other for control of the family company, and my shares could be the deciding vote!
MICHEAL: Guess what? The cousin I just found out about showed up on the Quartermaine doorstep last night. Which is lucky, because her shares could by the deciding vote for control of the family company.
MORGAN: I in no way see a connection between these two events.
And then Alice came bring him to the Qs and he not only went with her without once bothering to even ask for the name of this mysterious rich and powerful family in his hometown, but also somehow didn’t even notice where they were going until he was literally inside the mansion.
I mean, REALLY? I would ask how anyone could possibly be that unaware and self-absorbed, but, well… you know. Look at his parents:
SONNY: You have gone too far, and I’ve had it. Now, you are the mother of my children. So is Olivia. It’s very simple. If she dies, you die!
Yup. That’s daddy threatening to have mommy killed! Because if there’s one thing Sonny absolutely cannot understand or forgive, it’s an innocent person accidentally getting hurt as the result of an impulsive decision made in anger. (Y’all, how did the skies not open and rain lightning on him during that speech? HOW?)
Of course, if he ends up using Shawn for the hit, it’s not like Carly has much to worry about. So there’s that.
And now, your One Life to Live moment of zen:
Oh, Todd. Oh, Blair. OH MY HEART.
