Monday’s episode was a nice reminder that this thing I record every day is a soap opera and not just a really pointless documentary about a bunch of people who live in a cardboard town and receive amazing job offers without exerting any effort whatsoever.
We had not one but two cases of Outraged Sami Outbursts, about Will having brought Sydney over to EJ’s and also about… well…
This whole prince-and-princess-waltz thing has left me speechless — and if you ask any of my friends, or my family, and anyone I work with, or anyone I encounter in public, that is a serious accomplishment. Did they even bother to explain where they got the costumes? This was some serious James E. Reilly craziness. And I have two questions:
1) If Kayla’s invisible son loves this show so much, why isn’t he at the party? Isn’t he Sydney’s second cousin or something? Then again, he’s invisible, so maybe he is there. (Also, why aren’t Sydney’s other two siblings there?!)
2) I’m all for exploring the chemistry between Rafe and Carrie, but um, how are they supposed to be at all sympathetic here? Yes, Sami slept with her ex/the father of her children/her rapist while consumed by grief at the thought that her son was dead, but Rafe is just running around lusting after his sister-in-law because… Sami is somewhat busy with work? It’s just making Rafe incredibly unlikable, and for a “good girl,” Carrie sure busts up a lot of marriages.
