Theresa called home this week and yes of course, the call was blocked by the
DEA agent. The DEA agent continued his same lectures to Theresa over and over
this week about how she had to stay dead, how she couldn't go home. Fed up with
her not wanting to agree, he locked her in the room and left. Of course behind
the cabinet was an unlocked window! Are you kidding me? How ridiculous! Though
at least Theresa is on her way home and not stuck in that room with that jerk
anymore. I was tired of his lines. Of course now she's back to square one,
trying to get away from Juanita and out of Mexico!
Gwen's celebration with
Ethan was disrupted when Little Ethan and a nightmare. Then even more so by Ethan
deciding he wanted to adopt Little Ethan. Pilar of course gave her blessing and
later gave Gwen hell. I loved Pilar telling her that Little Ethan being around
would always make sure Theresa was in Ethan's heart and Gwen would be reminded
that she killed that little boys mother. As much as I loved her speech, she
forgot one ting . . . Gwen doesn't care! She doesn't care that Theresa is dead,
she doesn't care Little Ethan's without his mother. This is what she's always
wanted, Theresa gone. Gwen must be punished somehow . . . someday . . . before this show ends!
Down on the docks, thanks to Pretty, Fancy once again lost it. Sheridan
showed up though and stopped her from using the remote to kill Paloma. For once
Sheridan did something good? I was shocked! Although she couldn't bring herself to tell Luis
and Fancy what Pretty was doing, she did also throw the remote into the river,
which had even bigger consequences.
While Sheridan and Pretty
fought over the
control, Fancy got down and all fours and barked like a dog! She quickly passed
out and Luis' "love" saved her and brought her back. This not only
served to bring Luis and Fancy back together, but Paloma realized maybe Noah
wasn't lying and Fancy was really acting nuts. LEt's just hope they stay
together, as I can't take their same conversation over and over again anymore
When Sheridan threw the
remote in the river, well it made Fancy have a coughing fit and she coughed the
implant right out of her nose. Again, are you kidding me? I mean if that is all
it took, she should have sneezed or blew it out ages ago. Whatever, I'm just
glad it's gone and we don't have to deal with robot Fancy anymore. Though I
would have liked Pretty to get caught for what she's done!
learned the news that Paloma and Noah worked things out and she was busy convincing
them all to go on with the double wedding, Tabitha was once again worrying about
that blasted demon elf. I wish he'd stay gone honestly! In her worrying, she blurt out they were under elf
attack, which got Pilar wondering. Pilar started questioning the gossip she had
heard about Tabitha, how everyone has always known her, how she's lived her so
long, how she never ages. Pilar told Kay she believes the rumors are true and
Tabitha is a witch. Wow, it took 8 years to figure that out? I mean we've been
told Sam knew Tabitha as a little boy, you'd think he'd have also put two and
two together. Then again he can't manage to catch any criminals in town either.
of criminals, it seems once again Spike has dropped off the radar and Jessica
and her new baby are nowhere to be found. They were back one day and now gone
again. What's up with that? I hope to see that story resolved before this show

So everyone came home this week from Mexico. Sam arranged
for an impromptu memorial at the mansion for Theresa. Even at the memorial Gwen
continued to blackmail Pilar not only into keeping quiet, but also to not let
anyone learn the truth about Little Ethan. I had forgotten that Theresa told
Luis the truth long ago. Seriously, how does Gwen expect to keep this from
coming out? I mean even Little Ethan knows the truth. When he finally accepts
that his mother is gone (which of course she's not), he is going to tell Ethan
the truth and Gwen won't be able to stop it. I don't think she thought this plan
over that well, or she's just delusional enough to think it will work out for
his mom was still alive, thanks to the tasteless Rebecca wearing a wig that
looked like Theresa's hair and trying on her clothes. Why on earth they didn't
throw her out of that mansion I don't even know. I did love her comment to Luis
when he said if she was a man that he and Miguel would take her outside and lash
her. She asked tag team or together? Personally I don't understand
why Gwen and Rebecca are still living in the mansion at all. They need to be given the
boot and find their own places to live.
Throughout the memorial Gwen pushed Ethan to basically get over Theresa and
be with him, for the children's sake if for no other reason. Ethan told her over
and over that he couldn't discuss this, wait until at least the service was
over. She did, a whole ten minutes! Then she brought it up again. Somehow,
through what seemed to be like another whole ten minutes of contemplation and
thought, Ethan agreed that he had to move on with his life and he's be a family
with her and the kids. WHAT! I hope when Theresa comes back she tells Ethan to jump off a
bridge. I mean he must have really loved Theresa a whole lot to have gotten over
her so quickly! He can stay with Gwen and knowing Theresa alive and no
longer wants him. Seriously Ethan, what is wrong with you?
between Luis and Fancy, thanks to Pretty and in part Sheridan, have just gotten
more and more ridiculous. Pretty told Fancy that Luis didn't want her to come
down for the service. She also told Luis that Fancy went out partying and
couldn't come down. They'd figure out what Pretty has done if they could take
two minutes to TALK to each other. This has actually reminded me a lot of the
old Sami coming between Austin and Carrie on "Days" years ago. Yeah
guess who was writing that story too! I remember back then thinking "Can
these people just talk and figure out what is going on?"
Esme came up with the idea, which she has awhile ago actually, to not only
marry Julian . . but this time to send Viki off to a fancy boarding
school. Uh oh! This isn't what Viki wanted to hear. However she seemed okay with
it, as long as she got to come home and visit for all the holidays and the
summer. Esme then went to talk to Julian about her idea, but he seemed to think
that Viki would be better off traveling abroad during those times rather than
coming home to Harmony. Viki didn't like this and once again seems determined to
kill Julian if she has to. What I didn't get was Julian just seemed to be okay
with Esme's whole idea, including the part about them getting married. What
happened to wanting to work things out with Eve? I hope they catch Viki soon as
this story has gotten just far too silly. Though maybe Esme needs to run into
Vincent and find him hot, then Viki could kill him off for good.
Finally somewhere in Mexico, Theresa woke up in a morgue. Yes she's alive,
and has been taken in by the US DEA, supposedly. I had a hard time believing
that because the man was insistent she had to stay dead, otherwise Juanita would
find her and then go kill her family. I didn't get the logic in how Theresa
calling home to her family would put them in danger, given Juanita doesn't know
where they are. Seems like Theresa wasn't getting the logic much either. By the
end of the week she called home to Pilar, but you can see where this one is
going. Pilar picked up the phone saying "Hello? Is anyone there?" Yup,
Pilar isn't going to hear it's Theresa on the other end! Too much static I'm
March 2 -
The Vincent debacle was back this week. I can't believe
"Passions" hasn't ended it yet. I do believe it's the single most
offensive storyline I've ever seen on a soap, and I've seen a lot. I think it is
just offensive to anyone and everyone, no matter what your race, religion or
sexual orientation may be. Is there anyone out there who is enjoying it? I will
say the only thing I have enjoyed in this storyline is Eve and her comments. I
loved this week how she borrowed Endora's talkie-bubbles and was wishing for
booze as Vincent was going on and on about his man package hurting from doing Lamaze.
Gwen helped Juanita escape at the beginning of the week, and then bragged
about it to Pilar! Gwen is just sick at this point. I have to agree with many of
the comments left, she's far out-trumped anything Theresa has ever done at this
point. Gwen doesn't get to play the Sarah card anymore as far as I'm concerned. I
never thought she should be playing it in the first place, given she never
wanted to accept her own part in what happened.
Juanita meanwhile stole Marty, but later returned him. Pilar got the hint,
this was a warning that Juanita was out there and still coming for her family.
Gwen threatened Pilar to keep quiet about what she did, or she'd tell Juanita
just where to find Pilar and her family. Okay this is where I just got angry
because of the way it's all playing out for Gwen yet again. I mean come on!
Pilar needed to expose Gwen right then and there in front of everyone. What's
Gwen going to do, go tell Juanita after all to spite Pilar? Ethan would only
hate her even more! If she did then she'd
only end up with more years on her prison sentence for already helping a
fugitive escape and being an accessory to murder. Lock Gwen up in a Mexican
prison and just leave her there please!
It seems Sheridan, and even Marty, aren't as dumb as I thought they
originally were. They both noticed the connection between Pretty's remote and
Fancy's behavior. The problem of course is Sheridan is keeping this to herself,
as she knows if it's exposed then Luis will marry Fancy. I hate what's happened
to Sheridan. She's been ruined for me and I do not want to see her end up with
Luis at the end of this show. Honestly, at this point I could see Alistair dying
and her taking over his empire as the new evil Crane. She'd probably have to
fight Pretty for it all though.
Finally back in Harmony, Tabitha had enough of the demon elf and blasted him
away, or tried to. Just when she thought it was safe to go back in her kitchen .
. . he's back! The demon elf was resurrected by the dark side it seems and given
all new evil powers. Gone is his silly red suit, now he's sporting some black
matrix-like outfit. Tabitha made the comment that she wasn't sure which mortals
would survive the hell on earth about to be unleashed in Harmony. That got me
thinking, I wouldn't put it past "Passions" to end the show with a
bang and just have the entire town of Harmony blown right off the map, or sucked
down into hell.

So Kay and Tabitha watched Noah falling on the scaffolding and Paloma
struggling to save him. Kay finally decided to use magic to save him, but then
changed her mind! Noah made this passionate speech of love to her, saying he'd
rather die than live without her. Kay decided Miguel was right, if she used
magic to save them then they'd be back to fighting. Also she wanted to honor
Noah's wishes. Tabitha had one of the best lines of the week
when she told her to look up the word hyperbole. I've really had it up to hear
with Kay and her desire not to use magic. Miguel is not right Kay, which I'm
sure he's realizing now that his sister is "dead." I can't believe Kay
was seriously going to let her
brother die because he claimed he couldn't live without Paloma. That's romantic,
but they aren't Romeo and Juliet. Paloma meanwhile saved Noah, but nothing
changes between them. Guess it didn't matter that Kay didn't use magic or not!
found Pretty's remote control, and mistook it for a videogame controller. Okay
first, I don't know any videogame controller that looks like that. It looks more
like a PDA. Second, I love that the sounds from his hi-tech game were none other
than pac-man! But seriously, Fancy found her arms and legs being controlled and
she didn't know why. She was chasing Sheridan and running into the walls, all
while saying she can't control herself. Sheridan sat there watching. As funny
as it was, we've now entered stupid-land. Sheridan should be figuring out at
this point this is more than Fancy having mood swings, something is really
wrong. She seems to have a hunch, telling this to Marty. However she still
doesn't seem to have it figured out.. How they couldn't connect
it to the remote is beyond me! It's going to take Luis, super detective and his sleuthing
skills to figure this one out probably.
So the revelation of Gwen's deeds and the reunion of Theresa was in fact a
dream, too good to be true. Theresa was still passed out on the docks, so it
seems. Later though when she found everyone apparently believing she was dead
and morning her, she found they couldn't see her and she was passing through everyone. It took her two days to realize she might be dead!
I couldn't take watching Theresa sit there wondering what was wrong with her.
Was she not listening to everything everyone was saying? I think she was
drinking from the Ethan-juice.
Is Theresa dead? Heck
no! I believe she was having an out of body experience. She's been picked up by
a ship or something. Would we have many more months for the story to drag out,
I'd even expect her to have amnesia after this, which normally would drag on for
a year or so. At this point we don't have that time I don't think. Plus they
already did this with Sheridan a few years back.
Finally Gwen and Juanita
striking up a deal was just horrible. Gwen should realize at this point letting
Juanita go means a death sentence for Pilar's family. Clearly she cares more
about keeping her secrets and Ethan! Gwen is also being naive if she thinks
Juanita won't kill her as well honestly. I also can't help but wonder why nobody
just took Juanita out when they had the chance. I know, Pilar is a good woman
and just wouldn't do that. Sorry but in reality I have a feeling Pilar would have
pushed her off those docks and into the water!

So that Q@%#$@% demon elf is back, thanks to Kay, and
is once again causing
trouble. You know if I wasn't already tired of hearing Kay complain how she can't use
magic because of her promise to Miguel before, I really am now! Zap that little
evil #$%#@%$$ off this show now! Tabitha put it best, Kay may love Miguel,
but she'll never give up being able to do magic for him. Miguel better come back
from this whole Mexico experience a changed man about doing magic. This whole
"you have to change to be with me" storyline is so old fashion!
Noah and Paloma's drama
continued, and it was the same-ole same-ole this week. He continued to beg her forgiveness, she
said nope! The demon elf stepped in with a spell, which actually was somewhat humorous. He had Noah tell Paloma he loved her, even if Fancy was a better
kisser, and he was telling her so she could improve and not make him bored for
life! At least we got some what of a laugh if we have to keep watching this same
scene over and over again. Later Noah continued to follow Paloma around, even climbing up to some
window washing scaffolding outside the police station. Yup we could all see
where this was headed . . . accident! By the end of Wednesday's show, Noah was plummeting
to the ground. Now I thought the police station only had one floor? Okay maybe
it has two floors, but something tells me it's not in a high rise!
At the mansion this week, Sam, Esme and Julian tried to set their trap for
the killer, but it seems like Viki remains one step ahead of them at all times.
Sam was seduced by Ivy, while on duty no less! This is why he probably doesn't
ever solve any crimes. Meanwhile Rebecca tried to flee with her big trunk of sex
toys, in probably the one hilarious scene this week. Sam caught her, and was
stunned to look through her gadgets. What the heck was the light up blue thing!
It looked like some puzzle toy from the 80s. When Esme saw she was leaving,
Rebecca said she was in a hurry, but did have time for a quick make out session!
Too funny. I've been wondering who Becs and Esme will end up with this show ends,
and I'm thinking maybe each other. Though actually I'd prefer to see Rebecca and
Gwen end up with each other, in a big ole jail cell.
Now we get to Mexico. What to say here? I have a
lot to say, but it's not nice so I can't put it on the page. Ethan was rescued,
and Gwen gave him CPR to save him. Theresa meanwhile was lost at sea, but later
seemed to make it to shore. While she was trying to get back to her family,
Juanita was telling Gwen she better run for it, as one way or another, her life
with Ethan is over. Can't Juanita just kill Gwen? Later Pilar arrived and slapped
both Gwen and Juanita, giving them hell. Yes! Loved that Pilar stood up to them
and told Juanita she wasn't going to be afraid of her anymore. Steal Luis gun
and just shoot her!
Meanwhile as all this was going on, Theresa was making it
back to shore. Sorry, can't get excited, it's got
to be fake! The minute I saw Theresa go down on those docks and later get
back up, I knew that's when her dream sequence was beginning. I was shocked they
didn't end Wednesday's show revealing this was some kind of fantasy. It looks
like they are drawing it out for a few days. Curse on Passions for doing this!
