“Your Own Worst Enemy”…
Good morning, GHers!
I hope you are all doing well after Monday. I know some were disappointed that we had no JaSam on the very first day of JaSam week, but I have got to say that I agree with some of the smarty-pants who saw something deeper; which was a tying up of some loose ends. Of course, I was waiting to see our Jason and Sam, but since I know that it is Wedding Week, I can hang in there. Hope you can, too!
Besides, the other alternative would be to complain and be negative, and sometimes it is counter productive to be “Your Own Worst Enemy.”
It seems everyone in Port Charles is in danger of becoming just that.
When will Luke stop creeping around and actually face his family, instead of judging their situations based on overheard snippets of conversations, and the appearance of things? Ugh. His kids could use his dysfunction more than his absence, because they are all haunted by a piece of him. I hate that he won’t face up to them. However, the fact that he seems to be eating himself up with jealousy because he’s only close enough to see Tracy with Anthony, but not hear her still singing his praises? It serves him right. Why is he running to Skye? Why not adjust his man parts and take back his place with those he loves, even if it hurts to admit it? Sometimes, Luke, “You Are Your Own Worst Enemy.”
I am really trying to understand this newly discovered, yet previously hidden street-smart Connie, part-time Kate. Megan Ward’s Kate was a decided sophisticate, whereas I feel that Kelly Sullivan’s Kate is a homegirl trying to act the part, kinda like Olivia. If that is what the writers were trying to do, then mission accomplished. The only problem I see with their plan, is that it may take some of us more time to forget the Original Kate Howard. Even the chemistry of the characters feels different now, because Sonny was formerly trying to pull Connie out of Kate. Now it seemed that Sonny was trying to hide from Connie, while trying to remind Kate to act like an upper-crust socialite. It may have been the smack Kate landed the minute Sonny was within striking difference. 😉 I guess it should speak to the connection that Sonny and Kate really do have that even though they haven’t seen each other or spoken in months, Kate is able to throw a few reminders of Sonny From The Block at him, and he should be able to face his issues once and for all. Kate wants Sonny to go back and deal with his past, even though she has been famously trying to erase her own since traipsing into town. I am not sure that anything but medical personnel and prescription meds can help Sonny, but the all-knowing Kate/Connie seems to have other ideas. Not that it really matters at this point, Sonny doesn’t want to be, or even think he needs to be, saved. He really doesn’t seem to get what everyone is making such a big deal about, the poor fool, and I guess when everyone he loves or cares about has completely shut him out, he’ll still be trying to figure it out. Oh, Sonny, “You Are Your Own Worst Enemy.”
Spinelli was finally able to play a part we can all deal with…himself. Even though Spin thought the only way he could save Maxie was by resurrecting the recently put-to-rest Jackal PI, he found that he had what it took to save his Maximista. He also had what it took to kiss her senseless. Awww! A Spixie kiss! It made me smile. I love them together! And I will love them forever if it means we never have to deal with Jackal PI again, outside of a paperback. Let’s face it, Spin. Your alter ego “Was Your Own Worst Enemy.”
Johnny is quickly becoming my new crush now that Jason will be exclusively Mrs. Samantha Morgan’s. 🙂 I so love that Johnny came to Spin’s rescue, and didn’t care one iota about getting any of the credit. Johnny is just galant and wonderful that way sometimes. He was at the right place at the right time to do the right things, and then dammit; he blew it. I wish Johnny had taken care of his father’s mess and then kept shut, like he did with Spin and Maxie. I think the only way to outsmart Anthony is to keep him guessing. I don’t think Johnny did himself any favors by telling him that he was involved, but I get that to Johnny this is some kind of sick game with his father. I just want John to come out the winner. Unfortunately, Johnny, occasionally, “You Are Your Own Worst Enemy.”
Where does Carly get off? Who does she think she is, going to the hospital, and acting as though she is to be kept informed of Jason’s every move? I am so thankful that Patrick was the one to intercept Carly instead of Sam. I am not sure that she would not have gotten, and totally deserved, another smackdown from Sam if she dared to accuse Sam to her face about “dragging” Jason down the aisle. I don’t like the fact that Carly keeps talking about the possibility of Jason having woken up “different.” I hate it that she only cares about how she would be affected. She is just so damned selfish. I can only pray that Patrick is right, and the only changes in Jason are his priorities…from Carly and her messes, to Sam and his life together. I was thrilled that Patrick made Carly consider the question of whether or not she would be able to let him go if he was happy… because it sure seems to me that is exactly the situation. Sadly, I don’t really think it struck a nerve with Carly. All she can think about is herself. Not how anything going wrong with Jason would affect his family, or God forbid, Sam. It’s no surprise that Carly only has Jason to call friend. It’s because most of the time, Carly, “You Are Your Own Worst Enemy.”
I am hoping that our JaSam Wedding Week starts today…but in the meantime, I am taking a cue from my Twitter friend and Bella Mafia reader, Connie.
Connie purchased an adorable wedding card for Mr. & Mrs. Jason Morgan, and mailed it the studio at the address we have below.
I thought it was an ADORABLE idea! Nothing would send a clearer message to TPTB than an outpouring of love from the JaSam Wedding Guests!
So, if you are so inclined, please send your congratulations to the happy couple!
Share the JaSam Love!
Take a moment and share your good wishes for the Happy Couple with TPTB!
