Common Sense and Sensibility
This hussy goes inside to get drilled and leaves her phone lying around in the backyard all night?
Least accurate portrayal of a 20-something ever. More like Abi-FAIL, amirite?!
Gotta appreciate how Chad slipped into his Club TBD Burgundy™ for the morning after, just to remind her of Ben a little more. I definitely find Abigail and Chad more interesting than Abigail and Ben, though. I can barely muster a vague interest in the truth about this romp coming out, because who cares? I forget Ben exists on days when he isn’t on. And it’s not like Abigail is married to him — just break up with him and be with Chad. I think they’re trying to play the Safe Choice Vs. Bad Boy dilemma here, but that dynamic gets a little skewed when the “Safe Choice” is a rageaholic with a criminal daddy.
Bonus points for all the weeks of heavy-handed “Abigail, you’re so lucky to have a nice guy like Ben!” and “Abigail, I know how trustworthy you are!” we have coming.
Then you’ve got her cousin Will, who is eyeing Sonny the same way Brady eyes a decanter of booze or Maggie eyes Daniel.
This dope takes lack of subtlety to a new level. Why does he think that constantly grilling Sonny about his whereabouts is going to do any good? And then he’s such a moron that he misses their counseling session and tries to force Sonny to admit that he still loves Paul. It’s like they decided to pattern him after his mother, but the only character trait of Sami’s that they remembered was “stupid.”
For all my griping, though, I did really enjoy those scenes between Caroline and Roman.
I appreciate the way that they keep Caroline’s Alzheimer’s threaded through scenes and stories, even if it isn’t a big plot. And her and Roman bantering about phones and having kids help them with technology was really cute. It astounds me that the scene-writing can be so great for moments like this, but the overall stories are so hollow.
As much as I enjoyed these scenes, though, I have to give props to faithful reader and commenter underyourwing for the hilarious observation that they were just casually gabbing about how Caroline went on all these rides at Universal Studios with Sami and the kids. What kind of moron lets an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient go on these wild rollercoasters? (Will, probably.)
