Before we get into the insanely stupid antics of this week’s “Melrose Place” characters — and there were many — I just had to call attention to the graveyard flashback near the beginning of this episode. I’m sure actor Shaun Sipos is a heck of a guy who calls home every Sunday and volunteers at local charities when he’s not shooting, but I could not keep my giggles under wraps when David sobbed unconvincingly over his mother’s grave in the flashback.
But this isn’t just about David’s softer side — it’s also where he meets Sydney for the first time. She claims to be there visiting her father and just thought she’d stop by the neighboring tombstone and see how he’s doing. And what is the most logical thing to do after meeting a hot cougar in Hollywood Forever? Why, have sex with her, of course. So that’s why the Cinespia screenings are so popular!
It looks like we’re back on the murder storyline this week and the magical powers of flashbacks also teach us that David woke up the day after Sydney’s stabbing with the (probably planted) bloody knife in his hand. He tells Ella that he blacked out from drinking too much that night. He’s not sure if he did it, and I’m voting not guilty. Which means the murderer must have known how David gets when he drinks, so that could really be anyone. My bets are on Michael or Auggie right now. But Ella suspects it was the P.I. she hired because Sydney might have caught him in the penthouse .
