Hello, all you Hidden Palms fans!

My, but you are an exclusive lot. Perhaps a tad too exclusive. That might be why the network is now showing two episodes (that's right, two original episodes back-to-back!) this Wednesday and next Wednesday, in the hopes that they can ignite Hidden Palms fever by the time our finale airs on July 4. (Cue fireworks here.)

That being said, I deeply appreciate all your comments and votes of confidence and will continue to blog no matter what. Or at least until TV Guide tells me to stop. Which might happen on July 5. We'll see.

Anyway, let's talk about our two upcoming episodes. I think you will enjoy them for the following reasons:

1. The mystery surrounding Eddie's death deepens.

2. The adults start to become more of a factor in the developing events. Trust me, this is a good thing. Kids misbehaving is one thing, but when the adults go naughty, it's a hoot!

So, here's the scoop:

" Cliff finally has it out with his mom's sleazy boyfriend, Travis, and Sharon Lawrence turns in some epic work!

" Johnny and Greta continue to gaze longingly at each other. (What's wrong with that?) And oh, by the way, did Greta kill somebody?!

" Johnny and step-father Bob (yours truly) have their day in the sun - and their moment of mutual hell.

" Nikki comes crawling back and gets real. Good for her!

" And Liza... Oh, Liza, what are you up to? Can you spell bombshell?

Sound fun? Check it out! Let me know what you think (love hearing from you guys), and as always, enjoy the show!

Till next week,

D.W.
