BTW, one of my New Year's resolutions is to keep up with this baby every week - it's really hard!
ANYWAY, the week was a little light on the drama side, what with a huge snowstorm hitting Genoa City and leaving most of our notorious citizens stuck inside in unlikely pairings - however, the steamy affairs that usually seem to happen in such extreme weather only existed between the hot chocolate and marshmallows. Just as it seemed Sharon was about to kick Jacko to the curb, Noah threw a mildly less dramatic fit than his normal hissy-self and trekked through the snow down to the tack house after overhearing his mommy tell Jack that she was leaving him. After a traditional father-son chat that seemed reminiscent of Ward Cleaver, Noah's woes were subdued and Sharon came to pick him up - only to be snowed in! Burrrr! But nothing debauched happened...Nick and Sharon played cards. Literally. It was that boring.
Meanwhile, the snowstorm also stranded Phyllis and barf-tastic Brad Carlton at the Athletic Club, where our least favorite man of the show attempted to persuade Phyllis into officially breaking up Sharon and Jack. Although Phyllis agrees with the rest of the world that Sharon is a megaslut, she was obviously not up for 1) teaming up with Brad and 2) getting over-involved in someone else's drama - WHAAAA? isn't this a soap opera???
Another oxymoronic pair kept together in the snow was Nicki and Victor - who spent the manic night rehashing their unstoppable love with petty arguments about multimillion dollar lawsuits - which IRONICALLY is JUST how Thor and I spent our nights at the Cabin over Xmas! OMG!
And just as Jack was miserable and alone, Ashley popped in back from LA (I know I already told you this - sue me). They shared sleep-worthy stories about John, and Ashley attempted to convince her blatantly bitter brother to give Gloria her deserved money. She also touched on her failed engagement (on B&B) and how Abby loves the ocean - speaking of which...WHERE THE HELL IS ABBY? if BRAD is in Genoa City and ASHLEY is in Genoa City - did she just forget her child? But just as the storm ended, Sharon made the decision to stick it out with Jack - but as expected, she told Brad before telling Jack, wherein Jack then spied upon Brad giving Sharon a lot of heavy hand petting and he took off before she could give him the good news.
And in the storyline I am SOOO ready to rid myself of discussing, Cane seems to have AGAIN decided he likes Lily. Can someone PUH-LEASE stop off at Crimson Lights next week and advise Lily to tell Cane to SHOVE IT? His bumbling Aussie accent and hot body isn't doing it for us ANYMORE! We ladies like guys who are rough but RELIABLE all the same - which is why JT gets the "Hunk of the Week" award for not only taking care of his primi baby while nursing his comatose fiance, but also doing a little backseat investigating for Victor who is clearly being framed! Because just as things couldn't get ANY lower, Victor was arrested at Newman Enterprises and WE ALLL know it was someone flying under the radar.
My guess is it's Mrs. Chancellor.
I'm serious. She has lots of motive and doesn't seemed uber-concerned that Victor was arrested.
It was Mrs. Chancellor.
