The Hand That Rocks the Cradle
No, literally. Monday’s episode ended with a mysterious hand rocking a mysterious baby in a cradle (actually, I’m not certain there was rocking, but “The Hand That Touched the Crib” sounds like a much more boring movie, so let’s go with the first one).
Cute baby! And it’s doubly cute because its appearance means this story might actually get moving.
I know I’ve complained about Melanie lately, but Molly Burnett seems like a real team player, so God bless her for sitting there and spouting that ridiculous dialogue to try and make it sound medically plausible for Theresa’s fetus to have been removed from her body and implanted into someone else’s — all the while managing not to topple over from the weight of those Christmas ornaments on her ears!
(Also, how random was that extended conversation between Maggie and Melanie about how Sarah is considering being a surrogate for a friend? It served a plot purpose in that it got Melanie to ponder another woman carrying Theresa and Brady’s baby, but it’s so rare for this show to give any real attention to offscreen characters that way. Things that make you go Hmmm…)
Meanwhile, any time I start to get annoyed with Eve on account of her role in this idiotic JJ/Paige story, remind me to think about scenes with her and Theresa.
Kassie dePaiva and Jen Lilley are nailing this reluctant-sisterly-bond thing. It really adds dimension to Theresa, and it gives me hope that there’s a place for this Eve outside that odious Young Love From Hell storyline.
