This was a tough one, guys. I mean, we had a week full of Michael saying in one breath how wrong it would have been for him to kill Sonny for shooting AJ, and in the next that they absolutely had to kill whoever shot Sonny. We had a week full of everything that came out of Elizabeth’s mouth.
We had a week of Carly — who was once so afraid other people would judge her an unfit mother that she committed a whole slew of crimes against his father and basically kicked off this whole mess — saying things like this:
AVA: It isn’t for you to say. I’m her mother.
CARLY: Just because you can perform a biological function doesn’t make you a mother.
Yeah. That happened.
But for sheer, unmitigated, lack of self-awareness, Ric takes the gold with this performance:
RIC: Sonny’s in critical condition and Julian just breezes through life, you know? Whining about his innocence. All the while avoiding the payback that he so richly deserves.
Boy, Ric, you said it! I sure do hate people who commit terrible crimes again and again and then somehow, against all logic and odds, manage to escape any punishment for it! And it’s ESPECIALLY the worst when they somehow manage to convince themselves that they’re the real victims and constantly whine about how persecuted they are–
Oh, what’s that? Something else to add?
TJ: Everything okay?
RIC: Oh, it’s just delightful. Delightful! In the past few days, I’ve been blindsided in court, I’ve been scapegoated for the previous incompetence of the DA. My brother was shot and I’ve been banned from his bedside, I was evicted from my house and my marriage and now? Now I’ve been fired. I guess the only thing left is a plague of frogs and locusts.
Sometimes, it’s the little things, you know?
