The new prince of darkness
For the Week of December 10, 2007
At Cedar's last week, it was more than a little shocking to see Gus pull the Spaulding card in order to get Olivia on the transplant list. Not very in-character for the son who wants to be nothing like Alan.
I never thought I'd see the day when Edmund Winslow lost his title… certainly not to a pint-sized prince! But after watching E-Will (as I now call him) this week I think he's gone down for the count!
I have to say that I was a little surprised to see everything turn out this way. Nearly everyone in town despises old Eddie, and would love to shove him off of a balcony. But for him to fall to a tiny tot dressed as an angel? Talk about sending the wrong holiday message! Give this kid some horns and a pitchfork!! And to know he killed his own father, too? I can't see how GL can imagine keeping him around - and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't let my young son play a psychopath at such a young age. That kid just looked scary - although his voice reminds me of Charlie Brown ; )
But if Will stays in town - and somehow beats his rap - I have his next victim all lined up for him. Not that he's ever met her. But I have to say that Natalia really needs to find herself on the wrong side of Will's anger. As a Mom to Rafe she's fine. But her lack of chemistry with Ricky Paull Goldin (Gus) puts me to sleep. For once I am rooting for a marriage in Springfield to fail - even before it starts! I can see her wanting to be jealous of Olivia - her reputation precedes her. But I find myself wishing Gus would have an accident, get amnesia and forget her!
And this new bad boy Bill is a total mystery. I like the Lizzie/Bill pairing, but NOT if he's just going to break her heart. Seeing Daniel Cosgrove shirtless is a holiday treat I would love to see more of!! But his anger towards Billy leaves me cold. I hope GL doesn't drag this out too long.
At Cedar's this week I was more than a little shocked to see Gus pull the Spaulding card out when it came to getting Olivia on the transplant list. Not very in character for the son who wants to be nothing like Alan. Since I'll see both RPG and Crystal (Olivia) Tuesday I'll have to get their take on the storyline.
Speaking of the "Find Your Light" event I hope to see some of you there. If you haven't signed up for the Baltimore event, it's too late - there is a waiting list of over 300 names I'm told. Thanks to Naomi for putting the event together - I'll have a ton of pictures to share next week - and hopefully some great scoop, too!!
Until next week…
Keep the Light Shining and Have a Great Week!
