This week, on the hypocrisy Olympics…

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:

Carly vs Ava

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–

Ric whines

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.

  1. Is it possible to become emotionally when it comes to this show? Because I think that happened around May. I feel nothing for this show, and and I’m watching nothing; and I won’t until I know what Michael and Sabrina’s unexpected surprise is

    I never wish on soaps, because be careful what you wish for applies to soaps times 10. But I’d genuinely prefer a baby to more of Michael being a Sonnybot.

    • i started doing that right around july maybe…i barely watched it all summer, and guess what, i didn’t care that i missed it at all…

      so, i’m really hearing you on loosing emotions for this show…

      i so don’t care about whether or not sonny lives or dies…if he died, we’d so be in a better place

      i was looking for paul coming back but look at what they’ve done to him…so don’t care, anymore

      the only good part is dante, lulu and dillon, but they can so get rid of valerie

      they lie, they lie, they lie…

      no it’s not going to be mob city.l..

      they lie, they lie…they lie

      i agree, that’s the only good thing about sabrina and michela’s surprise…but guess what, i don’t care anyjore, now that he’s the real micheal carinthos the thrid, i stopped caring…

      and we know it’s all going to be srewed up…..she’ll loose the baby, or it will be kidnapped, or some stupid thing like that…so really i don’t want to watch that either

      i have an idea…..let her keep the baby, let us know that he’s the father, right off the bat, let’s not have the baby kidnapped…you know something that has never been actually done before…..or if it has, it’s been a very long time, and all that…

      oh and don’t make ava pregs like rumoured at the same freaking time….so that one baby lives, and one dies…(not a spoiler, but just what i’ve heard)

      susan

    • It’s definitely possible. See my lack of commentary on the continuing nightmare that is this Elizabeth story. I just… can’t care anymore. They killed my ability to care.

      • Elizabeth when she found out Jake was Jason’s son and became SUPER bitter. Performing a biological function doesn’t make one a mother??? Aside from extreme circumstances, I would think that is exactly what makes one a mother. I

        i guess that i missed that part, because um, she was already a mother when she had cam…..so carly that has to be the stupiest thing…..

        i’m glad that most of the time i don’t listen to carly……

        if i was liz, i’d point out back to her, hey at least i didn’t poison someone, (alhool sp,) because i didnt’ want him to be the father…heck i didn’t shoot a man, and all that….remember tony, dear……

        yup….my darling carly you’ve done far worse, and i wish that they’d have the guts or the permission to have liz or anyone else say something like that to her

  2. You know, Carly likes to toss around lines about how anyone can give birth, but it doesn’t really matter. She pulled the same crap with Elizabeth when she found out Jake was Jason’s son and became SUPER bitter. Performing a biological function doesn’t make one a mother??? Aside from extreme circumstances, I would think that is exactly what makes one a mother. I did love Ava pointing out that perhaps Sonny and Carly’s parenting is what ruined Morgan’s life, as opposed to the last couple of years with Ava, despite him being a grown man and making his own choices. And yes, Kiki justifiably wants nothing to do with Ava now, but from what I can gather, Kiki had a pretty great childhood with no violence and Ava did raise her alone so…

    Also, I think Carly and Sonny think they know what “good parenting” means, but it doesn’t match my (or the universe’s) definition. Case in point: the awfulness of Michael and Morgan. They did that. That is not good. I really thought finally their lack of self-awareness would cease to be so astounding. I hope Jax keeps Josslyn. He’s that girl’s only hope.

    Lastly, I can’t with the hypocrisy of their notion that Ava shouldn’t parent her child b/c she’s a murderer, but Sonny can even though he’s a murderer. Connie’s life wasn’t more valuable than A.J.’s. What the hell? I hope Ava gets sole custody.

    • Yeah, it’s not like I’m gonna argue that Ava should be up for mother of the year, because… please. But the idea that she is somehow less qualified/more dangerous than Sonny and Carly is the most laughable thing I think I’ve ever heard. I mean, that example Carly spat out about Ava threatening to drink while pregnant? Carefully left out the part where she said that in response to Sonny holding her captive and telling her every day that he was going to murder her as soon as the baby was born. Which was in no way a stress-inducing situation harmful to the baby, I’m sure!

      In conclusion: all of these people are horrible.

      • I like how Morgan said “that’s disgusting” when Carly brought it up too, like, excuse me, Dude Who Drugged His Brother.

        I like how Ric acted like he wanted his marriage or something.

        LAst week was indeed a rough slog. I mostly FFed, except for Dillon, Maxie and Tracy, and except Morgan, because he is so awful and annoying, it’s almost fascinating.

      • Tell me about it, I don’t think I have ever wished for a an actual Super Villain to be angered, so that said Super Villain could swoop in and rescue… I mean kidnap her and keep her away until she’s to tell them how ridiculous they are. Maybe Liesl will do it for us.

    • Pretty Sure it is too late for Joss. I fully expect her to return as a beautiful young woman with a mean spirit, as she was when she was on the scene w/ the other kids. Puberty will not go easy for her. The more power she gets the more ruthless she is likely to be. Remember young Carly?

      • Remember young Carly?

        i so couldn’t stand her….i need to take away mommy’s husband…i need to take her away, she doesn’t know who i am…yeah that’s what i’ll do, i’ll laugh in her face and make her life a living h, because hey, she gave me up, right….to a better family…don’t you know, but hey…..must seek revenge, must seek revenge

        susan

        and you’re so right, that’s just what i expet joss to be like in a few years…a carbon copy of old dearest mommy….

    • Lastly, I can’t with the hypocrisy of their notion that Ava shouldn’t parent her child b/c she’s a murderer, but Sonny can even though he’s a murderer. Connie’s life wasn’t more valuable than A.J.’s. What the hell? I hope Ava gets sole custody.

      and again, someone so needs to point that out…and real fast

      susan

    • Liz: We made a miracle.
      Carly: No, you made a baby. Any bitch in heat can do that.

      And a few years later, Carly begged Liz for Jake’s kidneys.

  3. well carly should know that for a fact she has managed to NOT raise these two morons and has obviously lost her daughter somewhere in another country. Neither of these women should be raising children. They should just have a sister wives thing with the sperminator Sonny he’s what they both deserve but take that baby away from them all.

    GH is just completely nuts right now I try to watch but end up turning it off 9 times out of 10. It sucks and whoever is writing this current stuff needs their ass kicked.
