I might have a brain tumor from the toxic gas in the tunnels beneath my house (I was trapped down there for six months — but don’t worry, I was immediately allowed to return to my job as a doctor!), because I continue to find this show utterly delightful since the writer switch.
How sweet were those scenes between Will and Abigail?
I will never understand why the previous writers’ reboot required Abigail to have no interaction with the two cousins who are her age and heavily involved in story together, but Kate Mansi and Chandler Massey work very well together, and that was such a normal, enjoyable conversation between two college-aged cousins. Also, I like to imagine that what they were saying during the breaks was stuff like, “Hey Will, remember that time you were older than me and pushed me off the swing like a demon child?” and “Hey Abby, remember when you were in college and I was still a 13-year-old scarecrow-looking kid?”
But seriously, with these two and the recently returned Nick, there’s a great next generation of Hortons set up, if they choose to put in the effort to write for them.
I’m also enjoying just about everything with Sonny — his confrontations with T, his interactions with his parents and Victor, and Brian’s continued pursuit of him.
I was going to complain that it was awfully rude of Brian to go up to Sonny and do the old tap-on-the-shoulder fakeout thing while he was clearly talking to Adrienne, but then I thought Brian was actually trying to finagle an introduction, so nevermind. Maybe. Also, that conversation between Sonny and Brian was possibly the most normal “getting to know you” talk ever on this show. “Do you have a dog?” No one in Salem asks stuff like that! It’s usually, “What has Stefano done to you?” and “Why was your last prison stint not really your fault?”
