Umbrella stories are back! Whodunits, “Who’s the daddy?” and classic wedding disasters.
Carolyn Hinsey

“Everything is awesome,” insisted GH’s Maxie to Britt before all hell broke loose at her and Peter’s double wedding with Anna and Finn. Normally, the action builds to a shocking interruption or kidnapping or reveal but GH gave us all three. (What, no locusts?) All roads led to Maxie’s groom, who was acting so sinister I think he twirled an invisible mustache.

Peter: “I don’t want you at my wedding.”

Spinelli: “This marriage nauseates me.”

Him and all the other guests. Obrecht resurfaced with dire warnings for Maxie — who did not heed them — so Anna and Valentin hatched a plan to kidnap her “son” and prove he’s a criminal. Unfortunately, they locked Peter in a shed about 10 feet away so Dante could hear his screams and spring him. So much for that WSB training.

Anna (to Finn in the ensuing chaos): “We just have to get past this thing with Peter.”

Fat chance. Obrecht revealed Alex was Peter’s mother, which Anna confirmed, Finn walked out and it was downhill from there.

On the bright side, it was fun having Anna and Finn’s exes Scorpio and Jackie show up together. Robert’s weary sarcasm struck just the right note with Jackie, Mac and even Obrecht when she bragged she was bringing Peter to justice.

Robert: “I don’t see a lot of justice here. Just a bunch of broken hearts.”

Especially Finn’s. I’m bummed his BF Tracy didn’t return for his nuptials. Remember this exchange?

Tracy: “Am I invited or do I have to crash?”

Finn: “Which do you prefer?”

Gaming By Degrees: The Philosophical Journey of Dr. Finn's Games

Early in his career as a self-publishing game designer, Dr. Stephen Finn earned a reputation as a designer of filler games. In fact, Richard Ham, host of the well-known board gaming video series and podcast “Rahdo Runs Through,” has called Finn the “undisputed King of the Filler.” It was a title that Finn embraced. “There was a time,” notes Finn, “when ‘filler’ wasn’t a pejorative term, but I think it’s now becoming one. I was always proud to call myself the King of the Fillers, because I was thinking of ‘filler’ as just a quick thing.” “However, over time, I began to realize that it may be to my detriment and now, I try to avoid it.” Not completely. Finn continues to promote the phrase on his company’s website because “being King of anything is still a good thing.” “I was thinking maybe it would become something bigger.”

Cutler’s two hour and 20-minute documentary about the “Ocean Eyes” singer and songwriter is not biography or reportage. It’s a verite-style plunge into her life, her home, her concerts, her process, her Tourette’s, her brother’s bedroom where they famously write all their songs and even her diary in the year in which she became a star.
