All things considered, this was a pretty smokin' week in Llanview. We had Stacy's dramatic tumble down the parking lot stairs, the word "bitch" scribbled in lipstick (our favorite writing utensil) on the hood of Gigi's Mini Cooper, Layla accusing Fish of batting for the other team, Roxy and Kyle doing shots in the hallways of the Angel Square Hotel, fantastic hand-acting from Rex, and a good look at what Dr. Greg Evans is packing beneath those surgical scrubs. All in all, we considered it aces.
Funniest Moment: There were a few this week but we're settling on Dorian combining "Blair!" and "Where have you been?" into "Blair have you been?" on Thursday's episode -- right before their big fight over Dorian's (ingenious!) idea to invite Tea to move into La Boulaie. Runner-up goes to Layla's explanation for why she thought Fish was gay: "I come from the acting and fashion worlds where if you're gay, straight, bi, tri -- whatever, who cares?" Llanview Gay Pride Agenda should grab Layla as their new spokesperson, pronto!
WTH? Moment: The Angel Square Hotel was home to a few weird scenes this week. One was the "first meeting" of Brody and Cristian. OK, we get it, Llanview's a huge town and all, but come on -- Brody's been on the scene for about two years now. Cristian's NEVER noticed him chowing down in the Buenos Dias Cafe before? Also, when Kyle lost the key to his room at the hotel, why didn't Roxy -- the proprietress -- have a spare? We assume it's so they could have a drinking scene in the hallway together. In any case, that was strange. But we liked it. Our apartment hallway is going to be our new happy hour spot.
Performer of the Week: Florencia Lozano as Tea Delgado. And her cane. And her gorgeous cream pantsuit. Everything she did this week was spot on (as usual with her), starting with her opening moments on Monday when she wiped down the park bench before sitting on it in her pristine pantsuit. She was wonderful opposite enraged Nora (Hillary B. Smith) and smoldering Todd (Trevor St. John). Florencia Lozano brings it day after day on this show. She's simply the best.
