Remember a few months ago when Sonny had just cheated on Dante’s mother with Morgan’s girlfriend over his guilt at killing Michael’s father, and it really seemed possible that all of Sonny’s sons would soon be united in hating him at the same time? That was a nice fantasy.
MORGAN: This whole time, Ava knew that you shot AJ, and she was using that to protect herself for when you found out that she killed Connie.
SONNY: She played me, but I fell for it, Morgan. Do you understand?
MORGAN: You’ve been dealing with this all alone. And all I’ve done is make things harder for you.
No, you didn’t just have a stroke. Morgan really did just apologize for having the temerity to be angry when his father knocked his girlfriend up and then tried to kill her. THAT REALLY HAPPENED. At this rate, Michael will find out the truth and be planning father/son outings by the end of the week.
This is why we cant have nice things, GH. Also, this:
SHAWN: Okay, you’ve got me. I’m off to kill Ava. And then it’s onto Julian! And after that, it’s that ice cream man who keeps playing that same tune outside Sonny’s house. [laughs]
JORDAN: So you think this is funny.
SHAWN: No, I just think you’d round up any excuse to get near me. You know, so you can bat your little eyelashes, and shimmy that rear to get me to revise my policy on you.
OMG, HE IS THE LIVING WORST.
(What, Shawn? Kill people for money? What an ridiculous idea! Actually, it is ridiculous, but only because he is the single most incompetent hit man this show has ever had — and I include Max and Milo in that list. At least I don’t remember either of them ever busting in to kill someone and then standing around, shooting the shit with him for ten minutes instead.)
Meanwhile, Jason’s been busy practicing his German accent, brushing up on his 90s pop culture references, and enjoying whatever mystical healing waters the hospital witches use to remove all scarring a week after complete facial reconstruction.
THEY GIVE FREE TANS WHILE THEY’RE AT IT
If this newly discovered sense of whimsy seems a wee bit out of character, let me just remind you that Jason Quartermaine was once known for wearing things like this. Enough said.
And anyway, I can’t complain when it leads to exchanges like this:
JASON: Do you think I was funny before?
ELIZABETH: I don’t know. The brain works in mysterious ways.
JASON: Well, I am glad I could make you laugh. Because you have a beautiful smile.
HE’S NOT WRONG.
It’s awkward, because I want them to bang SO HARD, but kind of not while she’s calling him by their dead son’s name. (#amnesia problems)
