“So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”…
Good morning, GHers!
I’ve been so wiped out that I thought I’d bring the laptop to bed and blog from there. I vaguely remember typing the line above…and then my husband was trying to get the atop out from under my head, as I fell asleep on the keyboard.
Ah…the joys of motherhood! Wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world!
Who knew the day would come that I’d be agreeing with Lisa Niles? Yet, when it comes to Port Charles, she was absolutely right: “So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”…
First and foremost, of course, is the situation Lisa herself is part of. I bet Scrubs fans everywhere were praying that they had seen the last of Dr. Niles, and that their cute little couple made up of the Doctors Scorpio would sail on through the regular, everyday problems most couples face. Sadly, when you are praying to the soap gods known as TPTB, “So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”… Lisa is crazier, and has absolutely no conscience, which is one deadly combination! However, there are some times when prayers don’t get answered the way we ask, and the answer still turns out better than we planned. Brianna Brown plays crazy as though she was born to do it! 😉 I thought her scenes were outstanding! I also thought the dialogue she had with Patrick and Robin was fantastic – especially when Patrick thought he was playing her about wanting her. Lisa wasn’t buying it at all, and you know what? I think the Scrubs fans should take a fresh look at these scenes, and be kinda excited. Yes, I get that the vial of HIV infected blood is a bit over the top, but have people never watched a LIFETIME TV movie? Lisa is freakin’ deranged, she’s not PMSing! Of course she would seek to torture these two in the most vile way possible! Would I have written it? Probably not, but I still don’t think it’s the end of the world. In fact, Patrick and Robin are totally on the same side, fighting the same enemy, and I really think they are going to come out of this stronger. On top of that, they are getting lots of screen time, which is something every fanbase wants and needs more of for their couple. So I say, “Hang on tight, Scrubbers! Your Love Boat trip just became a mystery cruise!”
One pair keeping that boat rockin’ in more ways than one are Steve and Olivia. It kinda boggles my mind that the newest couple on GH seems to be getting all the action! Either that, or what they say about a woman’s sexual prime is totally true, and Liv can’t keep her clothes on if she tried. Either way, Olivia knows Steve is hiding something about his past, and no matter what she’s tried to get him to spill, it’s just not happening! I guess growin’ up on the tough streets of Bensonhurst gave Liv a real penchant for sensing when someone is full of crap, so he may not be spilling, but she’s not convinced. She is not gonna let this thing go, no matter how hard Steve prays that she will. Sorry, Doc.“So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”…
You know, there was a brief moment where I thought I could like Matt, but sadly the moment has passed. While I was totally okay, and kind of applauding Matt on letting Liz have the uncensored, alcohol assisted truth, I can’t stand a single minute more of his pity party whine fest. I think even before he upset Liz’s sensitivity to truth with the truth, I was praying that he would stop going on and on about Patrick, as if he were still 5 years old. Yet, even with no one to complain to, he still won’t shut up about it, proving “So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”…
I cannot tell you how excited I was when I saw Lisa do the one thing that all of us have wanted to do for years…flip that Liz right over the railing. I was #TeamLisa for a few! Yet, once again, I was reminded that “So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”… when we saw the mystery man carrying her ashore. I wonder where this guy was that he was able to see her fall overboard, since she was unconscious and unable to swim, and still get to her in time that she didn’t drown. I guess the call of her ovulation cycle is even stronger that a siren’s song. Damn.
Already we know that “So Many Prayers Go Unanswered”… just because Shawn and Carly are in Hawaii, using up precious hours of Jason and Sam’s honeymoon. However, like I said before, some prayers don’t get answered the way we way, but it doesn’t always mean there isn’t a blessing in disguise. Jason and Sam have been dancing around this baby talk for months. Even since the wedding, there have been baby talk moments that keep popping up, but never really lead to anything definitive. Yet, this time, Jason got a glimpse of something that neither he or Sam really allowed themselves to envision. Jason saw Sam sleeping with a baby in her arms. And he said, “It was beautiful.” Awww…my heart melted like Hershey’s Kisses under the Hawaiian sun! When Jason told Sam that he’d told her she was a natural, it served to remind me that Jason isn’t just imagining what Sam would be like with a baby, he was also remembering what she was like. Jason and Sam got to enjoy Baby Hope for a little while before they experienced another devastating loss, and they experienced being parents together for a moment in time. Still, they got to experience parenthood together a thousand times more than Jason experienced it with Liz over his son, so I am sure the memories of that still tug at Jason’s (much more vulnerable since the surgery) heart. Jason wants to have a family with Sam so badly he can taste it, and yet he still won’t place that pressure on Sam. This is why they do the dance they do…
“Do you want to have a baby?”
“Do you want to have a baby?”
“Are you saying we should, or shouldn’t have a baby?”
“Should we? Shouldn’t we?”
It’s enough to give me morning sickness in the middle of the afternoon! (Although, it’s Sam who’s been taking lots of naps lately….)
Let me just make this easy for Mr. & Mrs.Morgan!
YES, DAMMIT, YES! YOU SHOULD HAVE A BABY! YOU SHOULD START A FAMILY! AND WHATEVER HAPPEN, YOU WILL HANDLE IT TOGETHER!
NOW GET IN THAT BEDROOM AND MAKE SOME FIREWORKS OF YOUR OWN!
This is one prayer that better not go unanswered any longer!
Take a moment and let TPTB know exactly what you are thinking about this Baby Talk. Let them know how long you’ve waited for Jason and Sam to have their family! Be passionate, be sincere, but always BE RESPECTFUL! 😉
