Strangers in the Night
It was weird how Chad had a nightmare that they recast Abigail with a drag queen.
I kept rewinding to find out what the hell was going on there. Did they pitch Melissa Reeves’s voice up? Did they literally just grab some guy off the crew and tell him to “do a girl voice”? If Aiden somehow had a way of accessing Chad’s subconscious — okay, let’s be real, Andre could probably do it with some old screensavers — this whole thing would probably make Jen’s case a slam dunk.
Meanwhile, Nicole continues her transformation into Kate Jr.
At least Kate was able to get Deimos to fuck her in a bed. Don’t go for second-best, baby! Put your “love” to the test! No matter how hard they try or how good the actors’ chemistry is — Zucker and Irizarry are nearly managing to sell something that isn’t there — I just cannot fathom this as a legitimate pairing. Why would a vengeful, psychotic man want to be with, let alone change for, someone who talks about Daniel Jonas this much?!
This foolishness aside, I’ve found this week infinitely more watchable than a lot of what we’ve gotten lately. Sonny’s scenes with Paul and Gabi were great, and instead of rushing through them, they let the characters sit and talk through things. We actually got to see Paul find out that Gabi’s with JJ! Gabi/Marlena was much needed, too, and even the hooey about inducing Caroline’s visions kind of worked for me. Kind of.
