It’s Party Time
As contrived as this entire Hope/Aiden debacle is, I really loved that montage at the end of Friday’s episode. But you guys, I don’t think Caroline is doing well at all.
She seems to have gotten herself ready for the bicentennial celebration by wrapping herself in some old drapes she found in the attic of the Martin mansion.
The energy of this whole thing coming together is a lot of fun. Bo and Steve putting basically every aircraft in the sky in danger so they can race back to Salem to stop a wedding for no particular reason than that Bo wants Hope back (it isn’t as if they know Aiden is planning to kill her tonight!)… Aiden lurking outside the windows while Hope spins around in her dress, unaware… Caroline freaking out… It’s at least soapy.
Also, Ciara decided to catch up with Chase and become a teenager.
I didn’t get much of a feel for the actress in the limited material they gave her, but I do appreciate how they’re easing these teens into the show. They haven’t made a big deal about them being older; they just recast the roles and they happen to be teenagers now. It’s much less jarring than I expected, though Ciara seemed to be dressed like an extra from Peter Pan, which has me a bit concerned.
Also, the last search item in this box is too good not to share.
It’s true! When she was prattling on about how she’s always preferred the sophisticated Madison Avenue fashions of the 60s, all I could do was stare at that tight, shiny, scaly dress she had on with my jaw open.
Lady, that is not daytime wear! I assume that when you say you prefer Madison Avenue, you mean you prefer standing on its corner, yeah?
Oh, and one final WTF for the week: what was with Justin asking Hope if she needs to recuse herself from the case? Yes, this cop who is barely involved with the case had better step down, since her fiancé is representing the accused, but the lead detective (who lost a woman to the prime suspect less than a year ago and is also the brother of one of the victims) and the D.A. (who was the father-in-law of another victim) are good to go!
