It is hard to picture Sonny as the one listening, dispensing good advice and providing comfort. Yet, there he was yesterday with Jason and today with Michael. It was a welcome change from the rants and violence Sonny usually goes in for to fix a problem. A softer Sonny is most welcome.
Some days I love Maxie to death like when she outs Elizabeth for her unforgivable deceptions. Other days I want to smack her like today. Spinelli is clearly her backup plan for Christmas. My heart breaks for Spinelli every time Maxie rejects him. I know I should hope for him to move on, but when he and Maxie are good, they are great.
A couple that looks great right now is Dante and Lulu. Sadly, I know this won't last. The next time Dante takes too much risk, Lulu will either tear into him or turn to the bottle or both. I know she means well but its just not going to stick. The marriage may not stick either. If nothing was open, how are they going to get a marriage license.
Loved seeing the discussion between Monica and Robin today. I am amazed that Brenda would know anyone who could help Robin. Then again, I have so little confidence that Brenda can do anything. I thought having Brenda call in a favor for her was unnecessary bit of dragging an old character back in. I like it when they mention off screen characters but there needs to be a clear purpose.
Carly was the only one who seemed to get a happy Thanksgiving and she is on her way to a Merry Christmas, too. What woman wouldn't want to come home to a decorated tree and a handsome man beside it.
