Out in the Open
Me: I hate drama
I mean, I get it. I’m bored, too, Chloe. But I’m not so sure about the wisdom of provoking a woman who has tried to murder you and gotten you blackmailed into prostitution just for shits and giggles. Especially by making out with a former assassin double your age in the middle of the mall. But if it keeps your mind off that kid you allegedly miss so much, then have at it, I guess.
This is super-random, though, right? Like they had nothing for Nadia Bjorlin to do while this kidnapping plays out, so they just decided to plonk her in the middle of this Eduardo/Kate “story” for the hell of it.
And speaking of said kidnapping…
Nicole seriously has the worst luck with neighbors. I’ve lived in my building for nine years, and there are people I see every day whose names I barely know. Meanwhile, this woman walks inside with a suitcase and she has people beating down the door to get her life story. After what happened at that motel, I wouldn’t so much as let a stranger past the threshold, but nah, Nicole will just sit down and have banana bread with this incredibly nosy woman 15 minutes after arriving in Downtown Canada. And her brain has been so thoroughly compromised by her relationships with Daniel and Deimos that she referred to the baby she kidnapped, whose name is all over the news, by her actual name. Meanwhile, Brady — a defective Hooked on Phonics cassette tape that somehow became sentient — can make it all the way back to Salem from “Canada” in the span of a commercial break, and he waits until he’s in the living room of a mansion filled with people who want to find Nicole to talk loudly on his cell phone about all kinds of sensitive information.
Fun fact: Hillary is played by Jennifer Landon, three-time Daytime Emmy winner for her role as Gwen on As the World Turns and also the daughter of the late Michael Landon. This could actually be an interesting, organic way of introducing a new character played by a very capable actor, but nah, she’ll probably do eight episodes and then we’ll go back to The Adventures of White Jade or whatever.
And I don’t even know what to do with the fact that Brady’s Canadian alter ego is “Freddie Smith.” I assume this is his passport photo.
What, was “Chandler Massey” taken?
