While I think there is a good chance this is a continuity error -- and much bigger than just RC forgetting, since there was a breakdown writer, scriptwriter, AHWs, etc who ALL didn't catch it-- I think there's also a very real possibility that RC ignored and/or changed it because it gave him a whole episode's worth of story. Sigh.
In any case, can I get the name of that tumblr page dedicated to soap analysis, please?
OMG, I plan to dive into that Steven/Rachel/Alice stuff with glee! LOL A lot of fans nowadays wouldn't even tolerate two months, let alone 2 years. For all the complaints about things moving too fast, they also don't like when things move slow! If only there could be some middle ground, lol
On the other hand, well, I feel like I should point this out...
Y&R used to be the very antithesis of this... Even if you look at 1999/2000, most of the stories were character-driven, well-thought out, long-term. You had relationships, people and couples that developed organically and slowly. Nina had a years-long story about writing her first book, confronting her emotions about her baby's kidnapping, and connecting with Tomas, for example. The occasional soapily OTT story like Spermgate or Matt Clarke coming back with a new face. It was wonderful.
And, yet, most would say it was "boring" and "too slow." "Nothing happens!"
Once more, I have to point this out. PLEASE, can we do something about it? Even by hitting delete, instead of deleting the previous quote/bubble, it just moves what I've just written INTO the quote/someone else's bubble. My God. How insanely frustrating. :S I'm on Chrome, as well. Yep. Toups said it's always been two enters but nope -- always just one LOL Now, it requires two, even THREE enters, and sometimes that doesn't even work!
Case in point, you can see on the screenshot how I've formatted the post and how it looks when I've posted it
I was gonna make a thread about this but was too lazy
This paragraph is perfection: Days of Our Lives will be celebrating the show’s 50th anniversary this fall, with a serial-killer story set to knock off several contract players and perhaps even a few returning fan favorites. (Which sounds like the opposite of a historical celebration to me. Then again, General Hospital commemorated its 52nd anniversary this past April by totally rewriting several characters’ histories, so maybe spitting in long-term fans’ eyes is the new hip thing.)
