Babies that are supposedly dead aren't, Annie's latest accessory has a monitoring device on it, Erica and Ryan are getting closer, Adam's making bizarre choices, David's still a jerk, the D.A.'s a bigger jerk, Liza's working some hot maternity mini-skirts, and Angie's got new hair. What a week! And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here's our highlights:
Funniest Moment: Given that everyone thinks Amanda's baby is dead (OK, only half the town does. But that's good by Pine Valley secret standards), there wasn't a ton of laughs. We've got to give props to the residue comedy from last week of Tad throwing a dart in Liza's faux-pregnant stomach. But we think the funniest moment came from Erica dropping this bon mot to Annie: "You may be a homicidal maniac, but you're not as dumb as you look." The fact that she says it as if it's a really normal thing to say to someone just makes us love her more.
WTH? Moment: What in the name of Stuart's ghost is going through Adam's brain? OK, we can go along with his fierce protection of Annie -- he's all sorts of screwed up after Stuart's death, believes she saved him, and wants to help someone ... mostly because he couldn't help Stuart. Fine. But would he really kick JR and Little Adam out so Annie could move in? JR, yes, we buy that, but Little Adam is like heroin to Adam. He wanted the boy in his life so badly, it lead David to nearly kill him! This just doesn't add up. <!--pagebreak-->
Also, did anyone else catch the quick glimpse of Liza's business card when she gave it to Annie? It totally had her picture on it? What kind of lawyer has their picture on their business card? Like, does she work for Caldwell or something?
Performer of the Week: We're giving this one to Vincent Irizarry (David). David is a stone cold jerk who we spend half our day wanting to smack, but his genuine grief and devastation over losing his baby got to us. We actually felt bad for the guy. Which takes a lot to do!
Runner up is Chrishell Stause, who continues to impress us with Amanda's "I never wanted to be a mom but I actually love my baby" journey.
Best Moment: We loved the scene where Frankie, after huffing around and being pissy all week, was sitting at the dinner table and told Randi he couldn't hold the silverware. Randi gave him a loving look and then fed him. It was a small moment, completely silent, but was -- in our opinion -- incredibly romantic. <!--pagebreak-->
Why We Love "All My Children" This Week: Liza Colby's sexy maternity wear! Seriously, does Mimi Maternity stock mini-mini skirts? Meow!
