Not gonna lie: when Lexie received confirmation that her tumor is, in fact, inoperable and it dawned on her that she is going to die in a matter of months, I got emotional.
Abe and Lexie have been a staple on this show, through the ridiculous and the insulting, for a solid two decades. Theo is a familiar kid who we’ve seen struggle with an actual real disorder. So to think of that family being torn apart by something (theoretically) irreversible is pretty devastating.
Meanwhile, she invited the half-brother whom she literally does not know at all to be there for her appointment with the brain tumor specialist. Two minutes into the Carvers’ scenes today, I Tweeted something about “How long until Ian is revealed to be Cameron’s father?” — half as a joke. But I mean, how many older white men are running around town who wouldn’t require a total retcon to have fathered a kid with Celeste some 18 to 35 years ago? (Not that that’s ever stopped them before, but you know.) So then, all of a sudden, Celeste and Cameron are hanging out at Sonny’s unnamed coffee shop — it doesn’t have a name, right? — and guess who should walk in behind them…
None other than the Whore and the Vampire! Of course, there wasn’t time for a moment between Celeste and Ian, because Kate overheard the news about Lexie and ran out to go tell Stefano. Look, Kate, I know the woman invited a total stranger to her doctor’s appointment, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she’s okay with you blabbing her very personal information to her relatives! Then again, if Ian bites her and drains her blood, she won’t have to worry about that tumor anymore.
Meanwhile, does Ian realize how many millions of dollars it’s going to take to replace all of Kate’s accessories? The crucifixes alone will bankrupt him.
