ATWT: The Funeral

It really irritated me to see Luke not want to be with Noah at the time because he would just remind him of the whole situation, only for him to go home to see Damian, and walk right over and hug him. However, the writers redeemed themselves at the end of the show. Noah showing that he’s willing to be there for Luke no matter what show what a good boyfriend he really is.

And again, every actor showed grief and sadness over Holden’s accident very well. Especially Van… he just makes you want to hug him.

Well this certainly didn’t play out as badly as I thought it would. Though this whole Jude Law business really did seem like it came out of left field. In spite of that, again, scenes like this just have me baffled how anyone can suggest Noah is a bad boyfriend. Noah was ready to drop everything in a heartbeat to be at Holden’s funeral, and it was Luke’s insistence that Noah should go ahead and go to the meeting. And it’s really convenient how Damian is there to save the day, isn‘t it?

As much as I feel that no one can truly replace Martha Byrne, Noelle is doing a great job with what she is given. She’s done a very good job at playing a grieving character. And more Lucinda is always a plus.

This has to be one of the most pathetic funeral scenes I have ever seen. It’s nice seeing relatives like Aaron and Uncle Seth, and I’ll love anyone that wants to try to put Meg in her place. But geez… why use such a large church if there are only a few people there? Not enough time at all was devoted to the service, which like usual, is the result of Chris Goutman’s warp-speed story telling. This was almost as bad as Riley/Adam’s service. And I really don’t care much at all about Liberty right now. Lily, please do me a favor. Get a freakin’ clue. How is it that she has not seemed to realized that Faith actually saw her kiss Damian by this point? How?!

Holden’s alive. Yeah, not a shock at all. However. This can be played out well if done right… and a lot of that has to do with telling it in the proper speed.
