Hello everyone! I admit – I am terrible about submitting the recaps quickly. This week has been crazy at work, so I am just getting around to it. The kids and husband are asleep, so I can hurry up and get this done!
In case everyone forgot, we closed last week with the revelation that Rebecca is – gasp! – pregnant. Or has a brain tumor, take your pick. Since Elena was there to take her to the hospital – for a nose bleed – Rebecca has come bearing gifts. Because nothing says ‘Thank you for helping me utilize the emergency room for a mundane medical nuisance’ like a nice gift basket! Rebecca hands Elena the gift basket – which looks like it has a big yellow lollipop in it – and obviously smells something that doesn’t agree with her stomach. After almost gagging twice, Elena figures out that something is wrong. She points Rebecca towards the bathroom. As Rebecca is puking, Elena asks her how far along she is. I have to give Elena props – she had me doubting her after going along with the whole deadly nosebleed thing. Rebecca tells her that she is nine weeks, but Christopher won’t answer her calls. She ends this touching seen with ‘Sorry for throwing up in your bathroom’. That line made me ashamed of the writers.
Meanwhile, Ann is in a park watching children play and gazing at the locket Harris sent her. She get a phone call that is from Bobby. I’m a little curious as to why he actually comes up as ‘Bobby Ewing’ on her phone. Are they not on a first name basis. My husband’s name comes up in my phone as either his first name or ‘home’.
Oh, that Bobby!
John Ross is meeting with his aunt Lucy for lunch. After sharing stories like the wonderful nephew he should be, he tells her that he wants Gary (her husband) to sign over his part of the mineral rights to South Fork. I honestly zoned out at the end of this conversation. I think she said she would think about it.
Elena is working on her truck when Christopher stops by. She tells Christopher that he needs to call Rebecca. After he hounds her about why, she tells him that Rebecca is pregnant. In case it was unclear, they want us to be aware that Elena is the perfect woman. She’s hot, likes to work on trucks, but is also girly.
Give her a pink rag to use. That will show everyone that she’s girly.
Just when you thought that we were done with the bitch slap heard round the world, the police show up. They are arresting Bobby for assaulting Harris Ryland. Bobby is either pissed or constipated. This look could be either one.
Christopher shows up on Rebecca’s doorstep asking about the pregnancy. He asks where Tommy is and Rebecca tells him that she told Tommy to leave. Christopher still thinks she’s up to something. He then tells her that he wants a paternity test before storming out.
The producers really seem to like these shots from above
