Okay so tonight we watched "The Longest Night"... Karen's gone missing out of the blue. It turns out she's been kidnapped! This plot came like out of nowhere with no build up what so ever... Ben changes his mind and doesn't leave with Cathy but Val realizes that Cathy and Ben has had an affair after she sees them hug and trashes Ben's house. I wonder how come he never locks his door? It seems like she always walks right in, if she uses a key we never see it. Mack's daughter Paige has shown up and he remembers her mother Anne. But Paige lies and says that Anne is dead. Mack feels responsible for the girl. Gary realizes that Abby is fooling around with Peter Hollister. So this is Cathy's final episode. It seems like they keep changing the young couples on this show. First it was Kenny & Ginger, then Diana & Chip, then Cathy & Joshua and now they've introduced Paige who will take over... Ben leaves town and Gary comforts Val on the beach. I love that scene when the two of them just sits and giggles and talks about how they've come full circle. It seems like whenever there's a season finale they tease the audience with a possible Val & Gary reunion to make the viewers tune in the next season... Also since the season has wrapped up. Here's some thoughts on season seven... I love: - Val & Ben getting married It was about time and I loved the drama with Gary on the wedding day. - Gary giving the twins Lotus Point This created drama and caused tension between Ben and Val. - The way they dealt with Gary's grief early on in the season It gave Abby the perfect opportunity to handle things. I like: - Cathy and Joshua. I like them as a couple even though he treated her so wrong. - Joshua's tragic ending I was sad to see the character go. The way he slipped and got more and more tormented was well executed. - Laura and Greg getting married I just wish they had actually shown the wedding. - Olivia the teen rebel I like how she found out about that Gary had fathered Val's twins and her mom's involvement in it and how she acted out. I dislike: - Cathy stealing Ben from Val. This makes both of their characters less likable. - Gary asking Abby for a divorce I really like them as a couple and is sad to see them come to an end. - Gary and Jill She seems like a gold digger at this point. - Peter Hollister I don't know why but I can't watch this character without thinking about how he ends up in the cement... - Making Jason Avery 4 years younger No offense to the new actor but it was just weird how he never grew up.
