Halfway through today’s episode, I started composing a post in my head about how amazing Kirsten Storms looks with the real life pregnancy glow, and how magically interesting Maxie and Spinelli have suddenly become for the first time in years. I was going to bitch a little about Michael and Kiki’s insta-love, and marvel at how Maurice Bernard and Laura Wright can have zero romantic chemistry and still work so well as exes who totally get each other.
It probably would have been a fine little post. But then this happened, and it was simultaneously so gross and perfect and fascinating that I think I lost most of my high brain function?
HOLY CATS, KIDS. Was that amazing for you too? I actually stood up and cheered.
First of all, I have been waiting for Ava to make a man out of Morgan since the moment she started seducing him back at her apartment in the city. I did NOT think it would actually ever happen, though.
Or that Morgan would be the instigator — after spending the last two days pulling a classic move straight out of the Corinthos playbook, aka when caught red-handed in a despicable act, take no responsibility for your actions, blame all the other “hypocrites” around you, and shout about BETRAAAAYAL at the top of your lungs.
(Which just goes to show how perfect he and his mother-in-law — SOAPS! — really are for each other, considering she had the nerve to proclaim herself the aggrieved party after being rejected by the man whose daughter she stole for 20 years — an action for which she has yet to offer a single apology or explanation, by the way.)
But just because I have a hard time not laughing at anyone who’s big complaint is that their parents robbed them of the chance to get shot in the head or raped, I don’t want to suggest that Morgan doesn’t also have some legitimate grievances against his family. He even got some solid truth-telling in:
MORGAN: My whole family’s nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. Especially my father.
Word, Morgain. WORD. (Real talk: back before this fratty dudebro SORAS showed up, I used to dream Morgan might come back to town all grown up, hating Sonny, and calling Jax “dad.”)
He’s certainly seeming more grown up by the second. I guess two out of three ain’t bad?
