Was that… an episode I didn’t hate?

Listen, if you’d told me three years ago that I’d be this invested in either Britt or Brad, I probably wouldn’t have believed you, but BRITT AND BRAD, YOU GUYS!

Brad Britt reunion

Of the many things this show has been missing lately — of the top of my head: romance, character motivation, a day without the mob — happiness is at the top of the list. But Britt + Brad = instant joy, and I missed them so much and I’m so happy! Can she stay forever? Pretty please?

Brad sees Britt

LITERALLY THE FACE MY HEART MADE

Meanwhile, over on the romance front, these two beautiful goobers still make my life complete:

Jake Liz cuteness

Jake Liz cuteness2

JAKE: I’m with Hayden. And you’re with Ric. But I can’t stop thinking about you. It might be wrong, but it’s the truth.
ELIZABETH: I don’t know what to say.
JAKE: I don’t want to make you uncomfortable, I just… you’re the woman that I remember. The one I miss.
ELIZABETH: I miss you.
JAKE: You’re the woman whose kisses I remember.

True facts: her hair makes me want to cry. But the pining and the awkward attempts to find out if he’s been sexing his wife and the goofy smiles when they talk about the kissing. My heart seriously cannot take this much cuteness.

LIASON VICTORIAN HAND PORN

ALSO LITERAL VICTORIAN HAND PORN

Even Sam is shipping it! Which I know is meant to be all dramatically ironic or whatever, but come on, girl. You don’t want Liz to get hurt again because “she’s Patrick’s best friend”? JUST ADMIT THAT YOU LOVE HER ALREADY. (#sizzle4life)

But as delightful as all of the above was, this week’s Show Savior award goes to one Dante Falconeri, whose complete lack of patience with Morgan and Kiki’s bullshit made me awkwardly attempt to high five the television several times:

DANTE: See, unfortunately, in the real world, Morgan, you can’t whine your way out of the consequences.

MY HERO.

  1. Agreed. God, I can’t wait for Rick’s stupid plan to be blown out of the water. I don’t even care that it allows Carly to smug it up all over the place.
    I also loved Dante’s speech to Morgan, but the rest of his story with Lulu’s cousin is just so contrived and uncomfortable. What kind of person would sit there and awkwardly talk about how great the other person’s husband is in that way? I don’t really blame Lulu for being all “yeah, I know, I married him. Duh.”
    One more thing, Nikolas’ going off the rails is now even more out of control. Apparently he menaces women now? Ugh. Do not want. And he is the worst at keeping secrets. I can’t believe he hasn’t been found out by now.

  2. “ALSO LITERAL VICTORIAN HAND PORN” You are the best.

    The fall out of this whole fake wife thing better be finished up soon. Please, please I need them to be kissing some time this month! Though I suspect Elizabeth will be blaming herself for Ric being obsessed with her and trying to ruin Jake’s life (again). My guess is they will finally get to talking and then kissing and then . . . “knock knock” the police are going to show up.

    Fine, build it up! I loved Elizabeth making some comment about Jake being great in bed. She better investigate that further.

    I love Dante right now.

    I agree that the thing with Valerie/Dante/Lulu feels sloppy and contrived, but I kinda don’t care? I think I am just desperate for Dante to be with another woman on the show and for Lulu to do something mildly interesting? Lulu/Dante and Maxie/Nathan being besties is nice and all but they can they not be boring? I am also kinda into the idea of Ellie having a hook-up with Nathan because she is a beautiful nerd girl.

    • If Dante cheats I hope Lulu cheats first though; Dante NOT being a freaking skeeve is what makes his character unique and appealing, imo. At the very least I wish they hadn’t made her Lulu’s cousin – it just adds an extra layer of skeeve.

      • but that’s all that the soaps do…they make everyone related to everyone and it’s especially true on YR…..it used to be true on GL……and another world…I hated it….it’s like you automatically knew that so and so will be together, because they’re related to someone else…

        the newmans have all slept through the same family…and all that…….

        so now it’s gh’s turn…

    oh I agree with your comment kate…on the new spencer…it is so contrived, that it’s not funny…or even entertaining……..anymore..

    yeah I like the idea of Nathan and ellie too, I didn’t pay attention to her too much the last time, but this time I really do like her….she’s so cute……I just love her short hair now…..

    One more thing, Nikolas’ going off the rails is now even more out of control. Apparently he menace’s women now? Ugh. Do not want. And he is the worst at keeping secrets. I can’t believe he hasn’t been found out by now

    I too hate the direction that they’ve taken nick..

  4. I haven’t been able to watch recently, so …….Liz & Ric!?! What the hell? Why do the writers do this to her. I’m going to have to YouTube to see the Jake/Liz scene but especially Dante. The Victorian hand porn was my favorite quote until I read that.
    The whole set up of Liz/ Jake & Patrick/Sam could be so great if they don’t mess it up. But no matter what they better let Liz keep her dignity.

  5. while not a brad/britt fan they are kinda funny together but not enough to bring her back. Loved Dante for once; too bad he didn’t treat his father this way. They should have all taken turns kicking Morgn’s butt.
    I posted on Twitter than even sam was pimping Lake/Liason.
    The victorian hand porn thing- I so thought that I had a fb to Age of Innocence (I think) where Daniel Day Lewis & Michelle Pheiffer were in the carnage and he pulls her glove down and kisses her arm–that was swoon worthy–BM/BH so embody that especially yesterday with the hand touch–you could just see her shiver.
    They have got to stop this stupid Ric thing. Any EW fan worth their salt knows she would never take that trick back–Jakeson is the one she always finds her way back to.
