I just remember watching every day and thinking, "Hudson (or Cain) is going away soon, right? Right? RIGHT? Wait, who is Angela Holliday?".
LOL @ "Marjorie Main's evil twin." But, oh, boy, do I remember what happened to DuAnn in the barn, as well as Mama Khan's "Here we go again!" when Julia killed her and then covered her tracks. (She really came to hate OLTL, I think.)
Honestly, I feel establishing a new family and a new leading man (or men) should have been bigger priorities for DAYS than SORASing yet one more generation before they were truly ready. (Especially the new family. There are so few Hortons, Bradys and DiMeras still around, and the ones who are around have become related to each other in ways I'll never be able to understand.)
They did become a couple while working together on the show -- in fact, Hillary B. Smith has talked about Deas' initial reluctance to work with her after she replaced Colin as Margo -- but I don't think they made it legal until 1988, or some time after both had left ATWT.
I'm not sure I want to see stories anymore about high school OR college kids. Instead of SORASing kids and turning characters in their mid-30's into great-grandparents, why not let the offspring age naturally (and offscreen) and introduce new, ADULT characters to fill the void in the meantime?
I doubt it. They seem intent on making Allspice the purest angel in all the land. But they might have Sharon fake the baby's death for the second time (once she snaps out of it and realizes what's what) and then hide him again to keep him away from his real parents.
