This is What It’s Come To

Well, it’s been a week since Nicole managed to ward off Scooter’s predatory advances, so we’re overdue for a story in which a woman is degraded and assaulted!

I actually don’t mind this as a setup for some JJ/Lani story — and I like that they’re using their work to drive it — but I am so, so tired of rape and sexual assault and whatnot on this show. They’ve gone out of their way to state that Lani wasn’t actually assaulted, but there’s something icky about continually putting the female characters in this sort of position. Interestingly, though, Sal Stowers seems to be coming alive in playing this — maybe because Lani has some actual drive and agency here — but the only other time I’ve seen a spark from her was during her sex-trafficking storyline on the online version of All My Children, so I wonder if they decided to write into that a bit?

I have very little else to say, other than that I came home yesterday and the TV was on, and I thought Roman was choking instead of having an allergic reaction, and I burst out laughing. Also, it appears Kate’s grief over Eduardo going to prison has caused her to start lending Dario her blouses.

Yikes. Kind of makes you long for the days of the ubiquitous Club TBD burgundy, huh?
