Nothing Makes Sense
JJ over here seems to be thinking exactly what I am.
The virus storyline has produced some decent scenes — actual screentime for JJ and Gabi as a couple, fleshing-out of Adriana, that great Kayla/JJ moment, some good John/Paul stuff — but, like… what’s the point? Is this fundamentally going to change anything at all? A storyline like this is supposed to shake up dynamics, act as a turning point for relationships, that kind of thing. It’s basically just people worrying about people they already like, and quarantined patients freely wandering the hospital and intermingling with people who should be trying not to get sick, and Fynn flatly reading medical jargon off a Teleprompter. I guess they’re going to have Fynn be by Kayla’s side while Steve is searching for Joey, thus bringing them close together, which works (even though no one on Earth thinks this is anything more than a temporary obstacle for Steve and Kayla), but I feel like the writers maybe missed the part where a story is supposed to accomplish something aside from filling airtime.
Speaking of hospitalization: I think Chad might need to check in to Shady Acres or whatever it’s called, if this is how he imagines his wife coming home to him.
Yikes. Is Abigail now splitting a wardrobe with this random P.I. Steve went to see?
And apropos of nothing but kind of everything — who in the hell would keep the invitation from the wedding where the groom TRIED TO KILL YOU in an easily accessible living room drawer?
