But when Erica had to rush home and disregarded the pilot's order to have the plane inspected, I as a little annoyed. Then that plane started to shake and Erica's panic set in and so did mine! Even though I knew she was going to live, I found myself getting a little teary eyed as she tried to call Bianca, and then yelled out for Jack after the pilot told her to brace for impact.
And that is where my interest in the story died.
What happened after that has been an exercise in the ridiculous. Mountain man Caleb came into the wreckage and pulled the pilot to safety. All the while Erica is asking him questions and trying to get information to no avail. The man is utterly silent. When he comes back for her, he carries her out of the wreckage and then starts to sift through the debris. He finally let's her know that he had borrowed an ATV and took the pilot to a nearby hospital. But what we don't know is why did not do the same for Erica and he's not telling us.
And then, ridiculousness piles on even higher as he seems to blame her for the plane crash. Just how is the plane crashing Erica's fault? OK, we can say that her rush to get home and not have the plane inspected could make her somewhat at fault, but douchey mountain man doesn't know that! For that matter, we could blame the pilot for listening to her and we could blame David for paying to have the plane tampered with! All that is besides the point. Caleb doesn't know any of it.
Here is a woman who has just survived a plane crash, could be in shock or could be hurt and Caleb treats her like a absolute crap. He won't help her, he will hardly talk to her, he's just a grouchy old coot (which makes me even more suspicious that he may be a long lost Cortlandt!). And then he tosses her luggage over a cliff ala Jack Colton. But this is no Romancing the Stone!
I'm all for the thin line between love and hate start to a romance. I've loved it when AMC has done it with Erica before. And I have no problem with the attempt to make that kind of magic again (remember how much Erica hated Dimitri when they first met?). But Caleb is doing nothing to endear himself. Erica should hate this man for the way he's treating her. And I don't mean just because he doesn't know who she is and expects her to chop wood or whatever else.
It's early on and my opinion of this is certainly subject to change. But if that's to happen we better find out a damn good reason why Caleb saved the pilot and not Erica. Why he blamed her for the loss of his cabin and his dog (um, yeah.. named Dog?). And why he is a better match for Erica than Jack!
What do you think?

Kendall was not absolutely positive she could trust Ryan, even though he went above and beyond for her, but her feelings for him were still there. So when Ryan and Greenlee rekindled their friendship, Kendall was not happy and she wanted to get Greenlee out of FUSION. Ryan to the rescue! Being Cambias heir, Ryan went to Greenlee with a proposal. If they marry, she will then have controlling interest in FUSION because Cambias now had controlling interest. Greenlee, who had been falling in love with Ryan, happily accepted!
On a beautiful spring day, Ryan and Greenlee were set to marry at a castle. It was a perfect fairy tale... until Kendall showed up in a wedding gown! Kendall decided she was going to marry Ryan, not Greenlee so she locked Greenlee in the turret of the castle and made her way to Ryan, asking him for forgiveness and telling him that she had already spoken to Greenlee and that Greenlee was ready to back out if Ryan truly wanted to marry Kendall instead. Ryan was actually in love with Kendall and believing that Greenlee was OK with the change, he agreed to marry Kendall instead and the two danced together before the said their vows.
Ahh but Kendall's plans were about to be ruined! Having brought Simone with her, she sent Simone off to call the pilot so they could leave before Ryan and Greenlee got married. At least, that's what devious Kendall told Simone! But Simone heard Greenlee's screams from the turret and after much convincing, Greenlee finally got her to believe what Kendall was really up to! So they raced to the courtyard where the wedding was to take place. When Ryan heard what really happened to Greenlee, he was furious! Oblivious Kendall thought she was still going to marry Ryan so when Ryan told the Reverend it was Greenlee who he was marrying, Kendall threw a fit and attacked Greenlee!
As the women fought, Simone and Ryan tried to break them up. But it wasn't until they all fell into a pool that things got a point where Ryan could actually break them up. He grabbed Greenlee and carried her out of the pool, leaving Kendall there in shock that he had actually chosen Greenlee over her.
Simone took a dejected and wet Kendall home. Full of disbelieve about what happened, Simone tried to be comforting and listen as Kendall tried to come to grips with what she had done. Simone gave her these words of wisdom on how to get past it all, "Time and therapy, girlfriend. Time and therapy."
Ryan took Greenlee back to the turret to dry off and they discussed all that happened. Realizing they still wanted to get married, they headed back down to the courtyard after drying off and changing clothes. Luckily Greenlee brought a white halter top with her so she could marry in white! After Ryan found Reverend Lovejoy, the pair said their "I do's" But living happily ever after was not in the cards and another flashback, for another day!

Last week was a tough one for AMC fans so this week the PVB rates the farewells... Adam and Palmer's. What did you think, were our grades fair? (Pine Valley Bulletin)
The writing for GH characters when a new (or old) actor takes over the role changes so dramatically that the Serial Drama girls have had fun imagining how the Lucky/Michael scenes would have gone down with Greg Vaughan and Drew Garrett. The fact that this was the highlight of the week on GH says a whole lot, none of it good. (Serial Drama)

The lovely tribute included different people sharing their memories of Palmer. Adam was even welcomed into this group even though he was very much not someone who loved Palmer. He did have a certain amount of respect for the man though. And losing Palmer meant he had to face his own mortality. It's a hard thing to face, for anyone, but especially someone who is larger than life like Adam Chandler. With Brooke at his side, he stayed just long enough to give Nina a keepsake of him and Palmer. Then he took his leave so that his family could remember the man they loved and light a candle in Palmer's memory.
Honestly, nothing I can say can give you a feel for how personal, how moving and how special this tribute was. To me, it was one of the best. He was even greeted in heaven by his niece, Dixie. Eh, as not a Dixie fan, I can say even that was nice. And it was very nice to be surprised. AMC sure kept that little tidbit under wraps. All in all, I'd give the Palmer tribute an A.
And a little funny... Dixie presumably is in heaven, which is where she welcomed Palmer. But a few days later, David indicated that Palmer might be somewhere, well a little more toasty. As he was telling Greenlee about his plan to buy the hospital, he mentioned how in his day, Palmer would have probably pulled a similar move. He said, "He's probably smiling up at us right now as we speak, enjoying my power play." Smiling up at you is he? Well I'm sure David's not the only one who thinks Palmer might have ended up with a pitchfork and red horns! Takes one to know one eh David?
And then, only a few short days later, it was time to say goodbye to another important piece of AMC history, Adam Chandler. David Canary had opted to not make the permanent move to LA when the show left NYC. It's a blow, a big one, to the whole fabric of Pine Valley. Adam realized he loved Brooke, but couldn't have her. He was married. But then found out his wife cheated on him with his own son and bada bing, bada boom he was in the free and clear. He could have the woman he wanted. He had no further obligation to Annie. He left her fast, and found Brooke fast. And as he explained everything to her, it became clear that there was still so much love between them. And they slipped out of town together.
Adam's exit was quiet, but not undeserving of him. How can it be undeserving when one of the most beloved past characters came back for him, left with him and got their own happily ever after? Isn't that what we always hope for with our favorite characters? Adam and Brooke, together forever. I can't make one disappointing comment about that. And there is also the possibility of not just one, but both of them returning from time to time. That in and of itself is something to celebrate! But oh will he be missed!
I give the Adam exit, a B. I'm glad he got to say good bye to Erica, and I'm glad Brooke got another scene with Erica before leaving. I'm glad Adam and Brooke are together. We even got to see Stuart again! I think really, the only thing that I would have liked would be for Adam to say good bye to his family, especially his grandson. But as I said above, it is what it is. And the fact that it didn't seem like a final farewell was what I liked best!
