Tuesday, October 6th:
It’s been less than two months and Lily and Damian want to get married tomorrow. TOMORROW!?! Are you freaking kidding me?! Lily, the presumed death of your husband JUST HAPPENED! As much as I really don’t like Lily and Damian together anyway, this is the type of storyline that can last a really decent amount of time when told properly. But thanks to Chris Goutman’s warp speed storytelling method, everything has been told in less than two months. Someone please tell him that this is not a race! There is no reason - even in soap land, no, ESPECIALLY in soap land - for Lily to be making such a rash decision like this so fast! It’d be one thing if it were many months, maybe even a year down the line if this were to happen, but this is just ridiculous. HOLDEN WAS PRESUMED DEAD A MONTH AND A HALF AGO!!! You know, there have been parts of this show in the last month or so that have been rather good, and parts that make me want to throw a brick at the TV. This is definitely the latter. And that group hug at the end was just cringe-worthy. This has to be the first time I have ever been made uncomfortable by the sight of one of those. Ever.
The one thing that was nice though is that today did show how well Luke interacts with his younger siblings. Especially Ethan. They are so adorable together. But other than that, where in the hell is this family’s sanity?! WHERE?!
