Soap Opera Weekly: Blogging With Mala

I am having random soap thoughts and don’t know where to put them. Thank goodness I have a blog for this sort of thing! 

•We had a Mr. Pants and now a Mr. Quick. What’s with the random nouns and adjectives as surnames, ATWT? Hath the naming well truly gone dry? What’s next? Mr. Adverb? Mr. Dangling Participle? 

•GH’s Ethan and Lulu fans: Thanks for writing in and all, but for all intents and purposes they are SIBLINGS. I was okay with half-cousins Jon and Tammy on GL, but this is a bit too much for me. This is a soap, not a Greek tragedy. Kthanxbye. 

•Y&R’s Cane and Phillip: WTH? No, seriously, what the hell? THAT, my friends, is an old-fashioned cliffhanger Friday like we haven’t seen in a long time. Or, at least, it would’ve been had the episode not aired on Thursday in Canada and then gotten spoiled on the Internet.

•On a tangential note, are we supposed to believe Cane — adorably doofy, earnest Cane — has been running a long con this whole time? If he’s THAT savvy and capable of deception, how the heck did Amber and Chloe both pull one over on him?

•I did not see the GREY’S ANATOMY season finale cliffhanger coming. I mean, the Izzie part, yes…but not the other part. 

•The Fox fall season announcement is today and word has it that TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES isn’t being picked up. If so, Fox, we are DONE professionally. 

•Is there anything cuter than Eliza dangling off Paul’s arm on ATWT? Sure, it may look a bit precarious, but I have no doubt that Roger Howarth had a good grip on the baby and that she absolutely loves “hanging around” with him.
