Gorgeous Ladies of Llanview and Finally, a Kish Kiss!
Wow, I’m still reeling from yesterday’s double bouquet catch at Viki and Nora’s wedding reception. First Tea (Florencia Lozano) caught Viki’s (Erika Slezak) and then the ethereal Blair (Kassie DePaiva) caught Nora’s (Hillary B. Smith) and made a sound like “Chtzaaa!” while pumping her hands into the air like she’d just completed a tumbling routine. Add to that drunk Dorian (Robin Strasser) passed out on a pew and basically I can tell you that you had at me at “drunk Dorian.” Seriously, I’m not even bringing up the incredible Grey Gardens episode on Monday for fear of exploding with delight.
But tomorrow is the first homosexual kiss in Llanview since ... when? I can’t think of another one off-hand. Officer Oliver Fish (hunky gay boy Scott Evans) and Kyle Lewis (hunky straight boy Brett Claywell) are locking lips for the first time since their KAD Frat House days. Yay! I am really excited about this because I love they gays but also feel that this is so far a well told story. I think that Brett is actually shaping up to be one of the better actors on the show, especially given his somewhat random beginnings as a blackmailing “Lab Rat.”
Now, of course, the kiss doesn’t solve anything and, because this is Llanview, actually makes things worse for awhile. But it’s the first big step on Fish’s road to being open about his sexuality (expect him to finally admit the truth around the end of the month). So, yay for inclusiveness. But what I’m NOT looking forward to his one last hetero dalliance with one of the most despised ladies in all of Soapland. Do I need to tell you who or can you guess?
