Matt's Musings on Passions this week is going up Monday, and my
Last Word on Days is already up! For a

So Theresa has made it back from Mexico in one piece, but only to sneak around
the Crane Mansion in fear of Juanita finding out she's alive. While we give her
props for trying to protect her family, how exactly is this helping them? Yes,
Gwen has threatened to tell Juanita where Pilar lives, but if Ethan or chief of
police Sam find out Gwen was the one to tip Juanita off in the first place,
wouldn't that eliminate the threat? Gwen certainly wouldn't have Pilar or
Theresa killed if Ethan knew she was behind it. So Pilar or Theresa needs to
tell Ethan the truth, including that he is Little E's father, and then Theresa
can come out of hiding, Ethan will dump Gwen to be with Theresa, Gwen and
Rebecca will possibly go to jail and everyone will get what they deserve!
said, I kinda like Theresa's "Gertrude" disguise… but how does a "dead" woman
with no access to money obtain that get-up in mere moments? I'll let that one
go, as it should be fun to watch Theresa toy with Rebecca and Ivy while longing
for Ethan (even though she should just tell him she's alive. Did I already say
that?). And the scenes of Rebecca and Ivy interviewing her were a hoot! I'm
looking forward to seeing more of these uppity women interact with Ugly Betty
As for Gwen, let the poor man grieve already! Ethan just
lost the love of his life and the day of her memorial service, Gwen demands he
put his feelings for Theresa behind him and focus on her. We all know she has an
agenda and isn't upset Theresa is dead, but come on!
again, Little Ethan is the only grounded and mature person in this whole group.
He's already proven he can keep a secret by not telling Ethan they are father
and son, so why can't Theresa at least tell him she's alive? Whether that
happens or not, the scenes between Little E and Ethan are pretty sweet and quite
possible the most real moments on the show.
This week also brought the return of Roberto. Admittedly, I
don't know his history with Paloma, as I only started watching Passions since it
came to DirecTV, but I like him already. He is far more interesting on screen
and has more chemistry with Paloma than Noah ever has. Noah's a little too bland
for my taste and his "aw shucks" demeanor doesn't cut it. I hope the demon elf's
plan of breaking up Noah and Paloma works, because I want to see more Roberto
and less Noah!
on the heels of a real life transgender man going public with his own pregnancy
story, Vincent was back this week. I'm pretty sure the Oregon man didn't get
knocked up by his own father, but still, it's pretty interesting that this
is the story on "Passions" that somewhat reflects real life. Anyway, the Vincent
story is absurd, which is too bad, because I do like the actor. Eve just needs
to tell Julian what's going on so they can battle Vincent together.
Of course, Julian's having his own problems this week,
since Viki cut his penis off. Sucks to be him! I hope this story wraps up soon
and doesn't drag out until the end of the show in August. I don't care about
Viki's abandonment issues and am tired of her lurking in the hallways with her
bloody knife. In fact, I'm not sure which story I like least: the Viki stalker
storyline or the Pretty stalker storyline. At least we got a reprieve from the
latter this week!
