No, I don’t mean the big Bill reveal at the end. I’m talking about the surprise twist that the combination of Sonny, Julian, Franco and Ava forced to spend time together is actually… not terrible? Like, I legitimately guffawed more than once while watching Sonny’s pained expressions as Ava and Franco bickered in the back seat.
The face I normally make when Sonny talks
We are talking about three characters I normally can’t fast forward through fast enough, and one who is useless when not half naked and ripping clothes off of Alexis. And yet somehow, together, they don’t suck quite as much. I know! No one was more surprised than me!
Maybe it’s just the novelty of not having to listen to all of them having the same arguments for the 800th time? Because at this point, I really would rather watch Kiki try to explain quantum physics than have to sit through yet another scene of Sonny and Julian threatening to kill each other. At least now that they are the long-suffering dads of the jailbreak posse, it’s something new.
Don’t make Julian turn that car around, you two!
Meanwhile, Bill Eckert is probably a mummy and real Luke is most likely — brainwashed? Suffering from a split personality? A secret alien clone? I don’t even know, you guys.
But I am enjoying the exploration of Spencer history, whether it’s learning more about Patricia, or this little bit:
FLUKE: Your daughter got the whole clan over there to honor dear Aunt Ruby. Dear Aunt Ruby, who taught your sister when she was 15 to turn a trick and keep the johns crawling back for more.
I mean, I loved Ruby too, but he’s not wrong? And it was kind of weird listening to Bobbie wax nostalgic about everything Ruby did for her without acknowledging that pretty big teenage elephant prostitute in the room, you know?
Anyway, this twist is either going to be so ludicrous that it will be fondue mask melting levels of AMAZEBALLS or so ludicrous that it will be Franco’s brain tumor levels of terrible. TIME WILL TELL. Two things are for sure, though: 1) it will be ludicrous, and 2) the GH props department remains the best.
