What I Watched Today
(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)
Ned apologizes for making Alexis come over and being insensitive. She says they all need to process everything. She opens the door and Julian is standing there. He says he’s not stalking her or trespassing. He’s there to see Olivia-Q. Olivia asks what he wants, and he says, his son.
Carly is making out cards, and tells Sonny they have lots of people to catch up with. Sonny asks if he can’t have one day without conspiracies, mysteries, bad guys, or stationery. A day to enjoy his wife, his kids, and Christmas.
Jordan asks Curtis if he’s ready to do this. He wonders how this became his job, and she says there’s no one else she trusts. He’s dressed like Santa, and does a ho-ho-ho.
Michael takes Rocco to see Santa. Nelle comes out dressed as an elf. She says she’s Santa’s helper, and anyone who wants to see him has to go through her.
Lulu tells Maxie that Operation Sweet Smell of Defeat is a go, and they’ll be out of the hazmat suits soon. They just have to wear them long enough to get in, get the scoop, and get out. Maxie says she feels like she’s been wearing it long enough for corsets to make a comeback. She tells Lulu no offense, but Sam is probably focused on which Jason she’s going to be with, and not finding a place for Lulu in the company.
At the station, Dante questions the credential of the Naval lawyer, who tells him the warrant stands for itself. In the interrogation room, Sam tells Drew that they’re arguing the letter of the law with the lawyer, but it’s just a stall. If they don’t come up with something, he’s going to be court marshaled. Drew says, for leaving a life he didn’t know he had.
Olivia asks if Julian has been released, and Alexis says it’s conditional, and he’s getting a new trial. Ned is sure he’ll be guilty again. Julian hears Leo on the monitor. Ned tells him not to do anything stupid, and goes upstairs. Olivia says if he does, Diane will have him back in Pentonville. She has sole custody since he was convicted, and he has no right to be near her son.
On the phone, The Intruder dude says he has photos, texts, and an adult Teddy Ruxpin costume. Lulu and Maxie knock on the door, telling him he has to evacuate since ammonium sulfide has gotten into the air. They push him out of the office. Lulu says they have to work fast, before he figures out that’s the chemical name for stink bomb. She starts to go through the files.
Michael tells Rocco that every CEO counts on their employees, and the elves are Santa’s eyes and ears. Rocco goes to get hot chocolate, and Michael says he sees Nelle is putting her professional experience with kids to good use. She tells him she can’t be picky, and he says she’ll land on her feet. She says she always does, no matter who tries to keep her down.
Sonny kisses Carly. He suggests they bundle up Avery, and get some holiday cheer. She’s all for a drama-free day, but doesn’t think it can be delivered. He says everything is good, and it’s all settled. She tells him nothing is settled.
Drew tells Sam that he didn’t see this coming. Sam says he’s not a deserter. He was kidnapped by a most wanted criminal. He says a lot of what he did was classified. He doesn’t know where he was sent or what he did, but he sure the Navy doesn’t want him sharing it. Sam says they’re looking at him as a traitor, and he tells her that they’ll transport him to a secure location, and debrief him. This might be a problem, since he doesn’t remember what he’s supposed to know or who he told.
Olivia asks Alexis to tell Julian to scram. She says he’s got grown kids to visit, and asks if they slammed the door in his face. They want nothing to do with him, and neither does Leo. Leo doesn’t remember him, and he’s nothing to Leo. Julian hears Leo call Ned “daddy” on the monitor. Olivia says he’s a non-entity in Leo’s life. Why doesn’t he do what’s best for everyone, and stay far away? Alexis says she’ll give him some free advice. His mere presence there jeopardizes his chance of acquittal, not to mention any chance of release. He says it’s not that simple, and she says it is for her.
Carly tells Sonny that Drew is determined to keep everything that belongs to Jason, and Jason won’t fight. He tells her to give everyone a minute. Maybe he’ll see that they weren’t siding against him. Their friend came back, and they’re honoring that friendship, but they’re still his friend too. Carly says he feels like they betrayed him. She doesn’t know how to fix that, and show him they’re still friends. Sonny says Drew can’t figure out who they are to him, until he figures out who he is.
Dante tells the Naval lawyer that Drew is part of an ongoing case, but the lawyer says he has to bring him back for dereliction of duty. I guess they never bothered looking for him? Sam tells Drew that the most important thing is to keep him in Port Charles. The Navy could take him anywhere, and not disclose it. They have to stop it before it starts. He tells her that whatever happens, and no matter how long it takes, he’ll find his way back to her. She says she’s counting on that. The Navy guys come in
Jordan tells Curtis that he’s got to go in alone; the Navy is taking his friend away. He wants to go with her, but she tells him to stay and entertain the kids. There’s nothing he can do right now. She’s going to protect her turf. She says if any brazen elves get within mistletoe distance, they’ll have to answer to her.
Michael asks Nelle how the apartment is, and she says it feels a little big without him. He suggests putting up a temporary wall, and getting a roommate to save on rent, but she doesn’t think it’s come to that yet.
Maxie asks if Lulu is sure the bomb isn’t toxic, and she says only smelly. Maxie holds her nose, and Lulu tells her to use both hands to look. Maxie says it’s taking too long. Lulu asks if she’s resigned to not knowing who tipped the intruder off. Maxie says if it means saving her hair from smelling like a cesspool, yes. Babies are expensive. She can’t afford using a paycheck to fix her hair. Lulu says she’s a genius. Look for paystubs or a checkbook. The article quoted an anonymous source; they can see how the source was paid. Lulu goes through a folder and finds something. She tells Maxie it even says Ask Man Landers tip. It’s a check for $10K made out to Nelle Benson.
Lulu wonders why Nelle would sell them out. Maxie says the answer is in the dollar signs. It takes two hands to count how many jobs Nelle has been fired from, and Crimson was the last one. It’s probably how she found out. Lulu says she has an exposé to write, and Maxie has some choice words for Nelle. They’re met at the door by The Intruder dude and two other men.
Maxie and Lulu sit in a jail cell. Nathan asks what they were thinking, and Dante asks why they smell so bad.
Michael tells Nelle that he’s flexible if she has a problem with the rent. She says they’re in an awkward place right now, but she has the feeling they’ll make things work, and be in each other’s lives for a long time. Sonny and Carly show up with Avery. Rocco comes back, and Michael says he’s not used to Sonny being called grandpa. Carly says better him than her, and Nelle tells her she’s very suited to the title. Ouch. Curtis comes out as Santa, doing his ho-ho-ho thing. Nelle is left with Carly. Nelle says she loves this time of year, so much possibility. She doesn’t get depressed, since her luck can change at any moment. Carly says as long as it has nothing to do with Michael, and Nelle says that’s up to him. Carly tells her not to mistake his cheer; he’s seen the real her. Nelle looks forward to resetting her expectations, and Carly asks what that’s supposed to mean.
Olivia tells Julian to go before it gets ugly. He says if he leaves, he’s abandoning Leo, and if he stays, the cops will drag him out. He tells her it’s not cut and dried. Look how it almost turned out with Dante. One day Leo will come to him, and he’ll tell him the truth. Ned comes down with Leo, and Julian says he’s leaving. Olivia tells him they’re going to the park to see Santa, and to meet them there.
Sam tells the Naval lawyer that he’s making a mistake. Drew did nothing wrong; he was kidnapped. Drew tells her it’s okay, and to take care of the kids and herself. Alexis walks in, and tells them to uncuff Drew. The lawyer asks who she is, and she says the woman in charge of taking them down, and he’s her client.
Maxie tells Nathan and Dante not to look at her; it was Lulu’s idea. Lulu says they had to buy uninterrupted time, and couldn’t break in, since that’s illegal. Dante is like, so you chose noxious fumes instead? She tells him it was harmless, and he says to tell that to Homeland Security. She says they did this for Nathan. Maxie says they know who almost got them busted for fraud – Nelle.
Nelle goes to do her elf thing, and Sonny joins Carly. Carly wonders what Nelle knows that would turn her world upside down, but Sonny says it’s not the right time. Avery wants picture with Santa. I have to mention that there’s been a jump in all these children’s ages.
The Naval lawyer tells Alexis it won’t help the circumstances in the long run. Alexis says it’s due process. They have a warrant for Andrew Kane, but they’ve yet to see physical evidence that contradicts he’s not Jason. She shows them the folder, and says Andrew doesn’t even look like him. The lawyer says they’ve been apprised of the twin theory, but Alexis says his legal name is Jason Morgan. The lawyer snarks that he probably changed his face so he could enjoy his new life. Yeah, he’s been having a real ball. Sam says he was in a terrible accident. Jordan arrives, and isn’t willing to have him removed from her jurisdiction. He’s connected with a WSB most wanted criminal, and is their only lead to the whereabouts of Faison. I get excited all over again.
Michael welcomes everyone to Christmas in the Park. He thanks the parks department, and Ned thanks the sponsors, saying they’ve donated $50K to underprivileged children. Sonny sees Julian, and tells Carly they were supposed to come here to get away from trouble. He asks what Julian is doing there. Olivia tells him it’s a conditional release. His sister’s confession that she extorted him got him another trial. Sonny tells Julian to be careful on the icy roads; accidents happen. I wonder if Sonny has the power to make ice on the roads, since it’s in the 50s. They take the kids’ photos with Santa, and Olivia is obviously not happy in the photo with Julian. She suggests they take an extended family photo. Nelle takes the picture, and Julian pops his head in between Ned and Olivia. It’s actually a pretty funny scene. I like when they take pictures.
Jordan has a judge’s order and can’t relinquish custody. The Naval lawyer says for a half hour; he’ll have a word with the judge, and Drew better be there when he gets back. Sam tells Alexis she’s amazing, but Alexis says hold her applause. They have less time for a save than a pizza delivery.
Lulu tells Dante and Nathan they found a five-figure check made out to Nelle. Dante hopes she didn’t take the stub, and she says she says of course not. She took a picture; they’re not thieves. Nathan tells them they’re free to go. He only had to promise to take Maxie to Cabo. Maxie asks Nathan if he’s really mad. He says no, and she says that she’ll see him at home. He tells her to shower first.
Michael says Lulu was supposed to pick up Rocco, but Olivia says he can come home with them. Julian tells Ned to get used to him being around. He intends to be a presence in his son’s life. Leo is going to call him “dad.”
Michael thanks Curtis for taking the hit, and he says it’s his pleasure. Curtis tells Nelle that she did a good job wrangling the kids. He leaves, and Michael says he can take it from there. Nelle says it’s not his job. He says it’s his event, and she admits she could use a break. He says that’s what are friends for.
Back at home, Olivia tells Ned that Santa wore the kids out. Ned asks if Leo wondered about the strange man who crashed his visit with Santa. Olivia asks how mad he is, and he says he’s not mad; he’s perplexed. Julian has minimal legal standing, he’s on conditional release, and wearing an ankle monitor. It would have been a win to have him arrested. Olivia says she’s a coward. Ned says she is not. She’s fearless, strong, and gutsy; she even stood up to Monica. She says she’s a coward when comes to her kids. She can’t stand the thought that they might not love her. If Dante had been a different kind of person, it would have been a tragedy. She lied his entire life. Because of it, he went undercover, gathering information on a man he didn’t know was his father, and Sonny shot a man he didn’t know was his son. That Dante survived was a miracle, and an even bigger one was that he forgave her. She has to do better with Leo. She can’t pretend Julian doesn’t exist. Ned says it sounds like a plan to him. She asks what happens when grows up, and wants to know his father? He’ll look for Julian, and will find him. How does he think Julian will handle it? He’ll whine about how much he wanted to be father, and how Olivia kept him from it. He’ll make it Leo’s job to love and save him, and she’s not letting that happen. Ned asks what the alternative is, and she says minimal contact. Ideally, he’ll be in prison, but it’s better for Leo to know the truth than have an idealized picture. Ned says she’s not only fearless and beautiful, but incredibly wise. She says she’s lucky she married him. They kiss.
Maxie and Lulu arrive at the park, and Maxie says it looks like it’s all over. Lulu can’t believe she missed it. She gets text from Olivia saying Leo is with her. Maxie says what a shame; let’s go to the spa not. She can’t think, and needs her wits to go to battle with Nelle. She says, speaking of the skank…
Curtis hunts down Jordan at the station, and she explains she was called in to deal with Drew. He wonders why Maxie and Lulu were hauled in, and what is that smell?
Carly tells Sonny so much for a Christmas outing. He says next time he has a bright idea, remind him of today’s events. She wants to finish her cards, and says she just has Sam and Drew left. Sonny asks her to let him write that one.
Nathan puts Drew in a cell, saying, sorry. Drew tells him there’s something he can do. If Alexis can’t pull this off, and get the Navy to back off, Sam and the kids will need looking after. Others might come looking for him. He knows Curtis will step up, but he’ll need more than one man. He can’t trust Sonny anymore, and Jason will just bring more danger.
Sam asks Alexis how Drew’s chances are. She says Andre is their best shot. She might be able to get the warrant tossed. But if they have nothing more than his word, they need more ammunition and time, and she doesn’t know who can give it to them. Sam says she does.
Tomorrow, Lulu confronts Nelle, Drew confronts Andre, and Sam asks for help from Jason.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Interior decorator Joyce drops by Margaret’s house. She needs the living room done asap. She shows Joyce around. She thinks Joe #3 is crossing over into the style lane, when he’s supposed to stay in the execution lane. She has to go to Italy, and hopes it can be done in a couple of weeks She tells Joe they’ll fight about it after she comes back.
Melissa and Joe #2 make salad. He misses his mom. Melissa feels like no matter how much time passes, he’ll miss her; it’s just the way it is. He’s talked to a medium, because he wants to know that his mom is okay. In his interview, he says he was raised old school, but is hoping the medium will “connect” him. Melissa tells him about Dolores and Siggy going to Kim D.’s store, and how she said Teresa is fanning an old flame. She says there was a time when Teresa was supportive of Kim, but sees the truth now.
Margaret tells Joe #3 the Kim D. story, and about how Teresa went gangster style over it. She says tonight they’re confronting Kim at the fashion show. Joe is a little concerned, but she says she can outrun anybody in her heels.
Dolores and Siggy show up to get their makeup and hair done before the show. Kim D.’s eyes shoot flames. She asks how it’s going, and Siggy tells her about the dinner and how they’d repeated what she said. Kim asks what the reaction was, and Dolores says Teresa threw a wineglass and everyone hates Kim now. Some chick demonstrates how the guy was hugging Teresa in the club, and it’s pretty ambiguous. Dolores and Siggy aren’t impressed either. Kim says she heard Teresa is done with Joe #1 anyway. In her interview, Siggy isn’t cool with Kim messing with Teresa’s marriage. Dolores doesn’t believe Teresa is cheating, and Sylvia Miles Kim says, welcome to the Posche fundraiser. Toodle-oo! Idiot.
Teresa arrives at Melissa’s. Melissa asks if she’s ready for this, and she says no. She wonders why Kim D. wants to start rumor, and Melissa says because she’s an a-hole. I’d say that about sums it up. Teresa can’t wait to confront Kim. She doesn’t care about herself, but her kids. Melissa says Kim goes deep and hard.
Danielle goes to Margaret’s house to wait for the others. She tells Margaret the last time she went to the Posche fashion show, she got chased from the event, and had her hair pulled out. Margaret says they go in, accomplish what they have to do, and never see her again.
Melissa tells Teresa to be careful. Teresa says Kim knows how to push her buttons. In her interview, Melissa doesn’t think Teresa should put herself in this kind of position. If she gets in trouble, she’ll have to “go away” again. Italian for being thrown in the pokey. Teresa says something happens at every fashion show, but if anyone puts their hands on her, she’ll walk away. In her interview, Teresa says she used to like Kim, but she came after both her and Melissa.
They pick up Danielle and Margaret. Danielle says they’re going to a real Italian shake down now. The ladies arrive at the venue, and Teresa says it’s time to call that bitch out. Melissa is nervous. She says you don’t have to be genius to know this isn’t going to end well. They hit the bar and head downstairs. As Melissa walks down the steps, she says it feels like she’s walking into the lion’s den.
Teresa goes in first, and the others follow. There’s a long pause of silence, and Kim welcomes them and asks how they are. In her interview, Dolores says she’s lived in this part of the zoo a long time, and Teresa is not coming in peace. Kim asks if this is going to be one-on-one or are they all talking to her? Teresa asks if they’re scaring her, and Kim says she can “take youse all on.” Teresa says no one is going to talk about her husband or her, and Kim tells her, too bad. Teresa asks if she saw him screwing another girl, and Kim says, no. Kim calls them all dirty bitches, and says her girls have seen Teresa going to clubs. Melissa says Kim is the queen of going out, and Teresa can do what she wants. Who gives a flying; it’s her business. In her interview, Melissa says Kim just admitted her whole basis for destroying Teresa’s marriage is that someone saw her at a club. She can’t believe Dolores and Siggy. Teresa wants to straighten Kim out, and calls her trash. Kim says she’s the one who went to jail, and if Teresa touches her, she’s leaving in handcuffs. Margaret says don’t even speak her. Kim says she hasn’t seen Danielle since Teresa chased her from the first fashion show. In her interview, Danielle says she knows what Kim is capable of, and knows what Teresa is capable of, and she’s glad she’s on Teresa’s side of the fence. Teresa tells Kim that Posche stands for piece of sh*t crazy homewrecker every day (or something like that), and says she doesn’t want to go there. As Kim walks out with her entourage, Teresa says she’d love to grab her by the back of her hair. Me too. Kim says touch her, and Teresa is done. Teresa invites Kim to come at her, and Kim calls them animals.
In her interview, Teresa says she set Kim straight, and whatever her and Joe #1 go through is nobody’s business. We flash back to Joe being stupid, and Teresa says you don’t know what’s really going on unless you’re living together. Kim wants them out. Melissa says she’s disgusting. She can’t believe Dolores and Siggy are walking in the show. Dolores gets a few inches from Melissa’s face, and says, don’t tell her what to do. Melissa asks why Dolores is getting in her face; they’re supposed to be friends. Dolores screeches that it’s for charity. Teresa calls them Kim D.’s puppets, and Dolores says they’re acting like ladies at a fundraiser. In her interview, Dolores is dumbfounded by Teresa’s behavior, saying there’s a time and place for everything, but it’s not here at a charity event. She says she’s a grown woman, makes her own enemies and fights her own battles. She doesn’t need to get involved.
The show starts. Kim explains the fundraiser is for families who lost someone in a tragedy. Siggy dabs at her eyes, and Dolores tells her, let’s go, probably wanting to circumvent the waterworks. Siggy says no kind of rumor or drama will get in her way of doing acts of kindness. She’s thinking of how much money they can raise for the families. Don’t try to stop her. Zzzzz…
The girls gather at Margaret’s house, and she gets them cocktails. Melissa says it was a real sh*tshow. Teresa is glad she went. No one is going to talk about her family, and get away with it. Kim doesn’t scare her, and if she’s going to blatantly lie, Teresa is going to deal with her. Margaret thinks Kim was scared, and won’t say anything else. I wouldn’t bet on that. She wants to be on this show badly, and it’s her only connection. They agree that Siggy and Dolores aren’t supportive, and Margaret tells Teresa their silence says a lot. Melissa can’t believe they just made plans to go to Milan. Teresa isn’t sure she wants to go with them. In her interview, Teresa says it seems to be a pattern with Dolores. We flash back to her being unsympathetic. Teresa asks how many chances does she give Dolores before she sees Dolores isn’t there for her? She thanks everyone and says she’s torn about Siggy and Dolores. They’ll have to come to her.
Margaret goes to the office in rollers, and tells the fashion show story. Marge Sr. thinks it’s ridiculous. Margaret has finally set up her mom with Steve, her accountant. Marge hasn’t had serious boyfriend in years. She was like a wild divorcé in hot pants. She makes an appointment for her mom to get her hair done at the house, so she’ll look glamorous.
Frank and Dolores go out for pizza. Dolores thinks son Frankie needs to see life beyond his girlfriend. In her interview, she asks how a kid in high school is supposed to have relationship? It’s an anchor. She tells Frank that their son should have no distractions. Siggy joins them. She tells Frank about how Kim gossiped that someone saw Teresa getting cozy with a man at a club. She says things got ugly at the fashion show, and she called Teresa a criminal. Frank asks what did they do? and they tell him they did nothing. He asks if they stayed walking in the show. He’s looking at it from Teresa’s point of view, and what message was shown. They should have let Teresa know they had her back. Dolores says in hindsight, maybe they should have gone. Siggy says it makes sense. She thinks as her friends, they have to let Teresa know that they have her back 100%. These two are either stupid or insane.
Melissa and Joe #2 wait for the medium. Melissa says she doesn’t do this sort of thing. Joe #2 asks if she’s afraid of ghosts, and yes, she is. Teresa arrives, and they have some vodka. Joe asks if she’s ready. In her interview, Teresa says mediums aren’t her thing, but she’s there to support her brother. She’s not ready for all this. Medium Concetta enters. Melissa offers her a drink, but she says she never mixes alcohol with dead people. Good to know.
Concetta tells them ask questions. She’s simple girl who’s talked to dead people her whole life. She tells Teresa that her mother is next to her, and has been. She says that one of her children is sensitive to the other side. We flash back to Milania talking about seeing her nonna cooking. Concetta tells her not to discount it. She says their mother is home and at peace. She had a wonderful life, and hears herself being adored. Teresa says she still needed her, and Concetta says she hears the support and love. She tells Joe that she hears music playing. It’s Momma, sung by Connie Francis in Italian, and Joe says he danced to that song with his mother at his wedding. Concetta tells him that his mother had a hard time walking, but now she can run. In her interview, Melissa tells us that when Joe visited his mother in the hospital, he would whisper, go, run now, mom. Concetta knows things that she wouldn’t know unless she was really talking to her. Concetta tells them that she’s worried about their dad. He’s missing her terribly, and secretly talking to her, wishing he could join her. She wants him to know, don’t be in a hurry. Someday, they’ll be together again. Teresa believes Concetta is really talking to her mom, but it still hurts. She wants her to be there to hug, and it’s so painful. A sad, but uplifting and interesting scene.
The hair person arrives at Margaret’s. She asks if Marge has a safe word in case the date isn’t going well. Marge says she’ll pull her earring. Margaret wants her to be happy and have a companion. If it’s not Steve, she’ll find someone with one foot on a banana peel and a big will.
Siggy visits Teresa. She says sorry about yesterday, and Teresa says, her too. Siggy says it got heated, and Teresa asks if Siggy sees what she’s been talking about. What Kim said was out of line. Siggy agrees, and Teresa says if the roles were reversed, she would never support that person. what said out of line Siggy tells Teresa that she defended her in the store, and told Kim it was disgusting and below the belt. Teresa says after she heard it, why not just give her donation and leave? Siggy says they were there for the charity event. She didn’t care about Kim; she didn’t want to disappoint the families. Teresa gets it, and is fine with it. I’m not. Even if they’re considered minor celebrities, and people were there to see them walk, why didn’t either one of them put it like that before? I’d probably leave, but announce why first. Teresa says she never thought Kim would go against her, and it could happen to Siggy or Dolores. Siggy tells Teresa that they’re her friends. She can’t talk with Margaret, and Danielle is up Teresa’s ass. Teresa thought everything was good with Siggy and Margaret. She says it was until Margaret referenced Hitler at the dinner. We flash back, and I wonder if Siggy actually heard and/or understood what Margaret was saying, since it was an appropriate example. She thinks Margaret is missing a sensitivity chip. She doesn’t hate her, but she’s over it. Teresa appreciates her coming, but wonders where it leaves them. Siggy doesn’t know what’s going down, but wants to go to Milan. She won’t go without Dolores though, because we’re twelve. Teresa doesn’t mind Dolores going, but doesn’t know about Melissa; she’s the one who asked them to come. Siggy says if it works out, great, but if not, she wants Teresa to know she loves her.
Margaret and Joe #3 double-date with Steve and Marge Sr. Margaret tells Steve to watch Marge, she can be handsy after a few drinks. Margaret asks Steve what kind of woman he’s looking for, and Joe says, breathing. Steve admires Marge’s tattoo. She’s been thinking about one no one would see unless she’s naked. He asks if she’ll be getting it by their third date. Ha-ha! In her interview, Margaret says it’s going better than she planned. She asks about Steve’s five-year plan, and he says he eventually wants to settle down. Margaret says he doesn’t want to grow old alone; no one does. In her interview, Margaret says, move over, Siggy. She’s not the only matchmaker. Steve asks if they can have another date without them next time. Margaret says he’s approved.
Teresa calls Melissa, and tells her about Siggy’s visit, and how she didn’t want to let the families down. Melissa understands. Teresa says they were talking about Italy, and Siggy won’t go without Dolores. Melissa says she’s not taking the invitation back, but she’s always felt like Dolores is an older sister, and she got in her face. She should have gotten crazy on Kim, if she was in the mood to get crazy. The bottom line is that she doesn’t want to deal with anybody’s sh*t when they’re in Italy. She’s done with Dolores if she disrespects her like that again. Dolores is on her sh*t list.
Next time, a lively trip to Milan, a heated dinner, and Danielle throwing things.
💫 I was only half-paying attention to Star, but saw the important stuff. Like Queen Latifah in a gorgeous shoulder-length deep magenta wig. Star also deserved kudos for bringing on a 1920s bob with waves. Cotton had serious love troubles, with Elliot wanting to get serious with her, and running into her previous bad boyfriend when they were out together. Jahil told Hunter’s mother, Arlene, that Brody was trying to sell pictures of Star looking battered after Hunter beat the crap out of her. Miss Lawrence let Carlotta know what was going on with Brody. She didn’t want to sink to his level, but Miss Lawrence told her to, sink, bitch. Rehearsals for the showcase were not going well, but when the performers were told that if it failed, Ayanna would have no choice but to sell the label, they pulled it together for the dress rehearsal. Noah apologized to Alex, who told him to never kiss her again, but the look on her face wasn’t jiving with her words. The best part, besides the hair, was Arlene meeting Jahil, and telling him that she wanted Brody dead. Brody appeared out of nowhere, turning the tables, and slashing her a million times. Afterward, he returned Star’s phone, and told her that he’d never bother her again. Right. Next week, the finale.
🎆 When You Google Psychedelic Thursday…
You get more results than you’d think, but these are my top two.
