Happy Easter, Will!
(Anyone else kind of miss those ridiculous “Happy Flag Day, Sami!” commercials?)
I can’t tell how much of this is influenced by how bored I’ve been by 90% of the show lately, but Friday’s episode — with the revelation of Paul’s paternity and then the public outing of Will’s affair — felt like pretty classic Days, no? I loved Marlena’s creeping horror as she realized what Will was up to and how he really is the spawn of Sami’s dumb ass. I loved Victor’s speech where he said that Sonny and Will’s wedding was a nice change-of-pace because “No one was shot, no one was arrested, no one found out they were pregnant.” I loved the fact that they threw together this impromptu toast for Will and Sonny’s anniversary and yet had the time to get this banner made.
Actually, the entire fundraiser was great. It was so nice to have that many people swirling around in one setting, and that felt like the right sort of event to hold in the Town Square (as opposed to, say, a gay beer pong tournament or a vow renewal).
I loved how they took the time to give everyone reactions to the affair revelation: Victor officially deciding that Will is no good for Sonny; Adrienne telling Lucas they can’t sleep together again; John deciding that he wants nothing more to do with that homewrecker Paul. These sorts of things work so much better when we get to feel those ripples.
