My reaction to the Four Musketeers reunion……(possible spoilers if you get GL later in the day……)
Is it just me, or did Guiding Light’s editor have too much coffee? Or perhaps, had cocktail hour too early in the day? It was all a bit confusing…..
Listen, any series of days on GL that lets us see (a) the Four Musketeers together, (b) Grady going to hell and (c) a Bill/Lizzie reunion is all good with me.
But…..wasn’t it a bit odd that in the middle of a lovely reunion, Phillip took off, comforted Lizzie during a meltdown, tossed Grady off the side of a ravine, and then came back and…..was re-crowned prom king, as if he’d just taken a quick run to the john?
These were two vastly different stories in tone, and clashed loudly when the show transitioned back and forth from one to another. I didn’t understand why the reunion didn’t happen in and of itself, with the Phillip/Grady faceoff after it concluded.
Beyond that, I stood and clapped when Grady did a Roger Thorpe today. Unlike Roger, here’s hoping a branch doesn’t catch Grady on the way down.
And Krista Tesreau is much missed and would be a welcome addition back into Springfield, even if just on a part-time basis. Maybe Mindy’s expanded into interior decorating? I hear Cedars could use some designer magic……
