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?

    I was thinking the same thing about the wedding invitation. Good grief!

    LOL at Abby and the PI sharing a wardrobe.

  2. Shea Says:

    I was glad we got a nice Kayla/JJ moment but I still feel like these writers keep forgetting people are related. I know Kayla said the line “If you were my son…” so that JJ would ask about Joey but JJ IS her nephew so that line is unnecessary to me. Aunts can be proud of their nephews too. I know I am nitpicking but they constantly ignore the fact that Hope is Ciara’s grandmother. They seem to forget Brady should be part of John and Marlena’s family. Theresa never interacts with any Bradys. Don’t get me started about the lack of Steve/Adrienne interactions… and it still bugs the crap out of me that everyone ignores the fact that John was Roman for like a decade!!!! I mean there was that scene during the bicentennial celebration where Julie insisted Maggie join the Horton photo and she nearly knocked down Shawn Douglas (who was being excluded) to get into the shot!

    I swear Abby’s outfit looks like it was left over from Bea Arthur’s Golden Girls wardrobe!

    And that wedding invitation is ridiculous…I mean the living room was so damaged from a fire that they couldn’t even live in the house for a couple of months but that wedding invitation survived?

      About Kayla/JJ — I know. I couldn’t tell if it was intentionally a family moment or just a “these two people kinda know each other” screw-up. I was shocked when they had Claire say “Grandma Hope” a few weeks ago!

      That thing at the bicentennial was SO weird/funny to me. Why did Shawn hang back?!

    • mykleraus Says:

      And that’s a good point about the fire! LOL.

  3. UnderYourWing Says:

    the writers need to eat some special cupcakes…..or was that donuts? whatevs, they need it. it’s getting pretty embarrassing….

    • mykleraus Says:

      It was donuts, and I want some.

    • ADW Says:

      LMAO 😂 I was thinking about those special doughnuts while Julie was serving Maggie and Victor “high tea.” WTF is high tea anyways? Did Rory provide the special ingredients?
      Yes, the writers seem to forget which characters are related. For example, Hope is Ari’s cousin on the Horton side and her Great Aunt on the Brady side, she doesn’t show much concern that Ari was knocking on deaths door with a strange virus.
      OMG Abbie’s and the PI’s Jimmy Buffet collection. Once again Abbie forgot her pants. LOL at Shady Acres. 😄 I thought the actor who played the PI looked remarkably similar to the John Goodman. I was cracking up over “Pirate Steve.” Speaking of fashion, thank you Joey for stealing Steve’s black Michelin man jacket, it seems he that jacket every single day. Also, Jade’s vest made her look like Aladian.

      • Dylan Says:

        High tea is a British invention – at around 15:00 people sit down and drink tea (with milk) with cakes/other sweet snacks. Nobody does this in the US as far as I know, but it is still practised in other former British colonies.

      • mykleraus Says:

        But do the Brits do it in the foyer?!

      • mykleraus Says:

        Everyone is SO in their own bubbles these days. I was shocked to see Brady and Belle actually talking about Paul! And the lack of involvement of Jennifer with Ciara’s rape is ridiculous, considering it happened in her own damn house.

  4. Dylan Says:

    It always kills me when they have “weather” in Salem, because it always seems so fake. Today Hope said “it’s really coming down out there” but she and Aiden were outside and weren’t getting rained on!

    • UnderYourWing Says:

      perhaps she meant the shit-storm the show too often is?? speaking of what the flock is she even doing with this look alike real aiden again any freaking way? seriously……. nvr mind. going to eat a few donuts.

    • mykleraus Says:

      And how they decided the Town Square is, like, a bio-dome so you won’t get wet there. They wanted an outdoor set, but… not really?

      • Dylan Says:

        Oh, I always forget about that. But I feel like it snowed there once back in Feb 2013? Is that weird Murder Park with the bench also part of this biodome?

      • mykleraus Says:

        I think it did snow there once. We shouldn’t be thinking about it so hard.
