Happening upon a young woman in the park, Rosanna learned that Cabot's adoptive parents were run off the road, but police claimed it was an accident. Putting two and two together, Rosanna gussed that James had something to do with all of this. Before she could reach Paul, though, James trapped her in an elevator and forced her into a bus, discreetly aiming the gu
Katie rallied behind her uncle when she learned that Doris was off her medication for biploar disorder. Surely, she concluded, Doris must have done this all to frame Michael. But alas, no one share the same belief. Knowing what Doris was capable of, Michael pushed away his family in an effort to keep them safe. Lyla remained quiet the whole time and slipped away to confront Doris in her hospital room. Doris faintly paged a nurse, who quickly escorted Lyla out. Brad questioned Lyla about where sh
Still unsettled by Gwen's words, Carly tries to clear her head by going for a run. Unable to focus, she gives up halfway through the park, finding a spot near the water's edge to sit. The more she thinks about it, the more annoyed she becomes at Gwen for taking Jack's side. Fuming, she doesn't see Nancy heading her way, until the older lady lays a hand on her shoulder and asks if she needs help. Startled, Carly quickly rises, shaking her head no. Dressed for her power-walk, Nancy gives her a rel
Smiling, Carly opens the door and finds Jack on the other side. She grouchily asks Jack what he wants. Jack replies that he's not done with their previous conversation from last night.

Bob saw Kim's diehard attitude to keep Michael at Memorial as a sign that she had finally buried the hatchet. When Nancy confronted her daughter in law about
Oh, the troll said that? Gotcha.
It's ridiculous they keep pulling out the 'youth' card. That 'theory' has gone back to at least the 80s with the soaps and it NEVER worked. Did it?
What works is a multi-generational show with layered characters and writing. When I was younger I didn't watch for the teens. I watched for the adults. So many in the industry just 'don't get it'. They're there to push an agenda, follow the status quo and keep the show on a budget. Some care of course. When care is taken, it shows.
I would have loved more follow up questions with Goutman.
EDIT: I've been rewatching some Marland ATWT and as I bemoan how useless characters like Beau and Pam are, I realize Marland was brilliant in having younger people to 'check off the box' while cleverly showcasing the veterans. The younger people really didn't 'matter' because the show was happening around them.
Unless I'm giving him too much credit. Just a thought. Writers/producers should take note.
On GL I have to add that I LOVED Brent/Marion and I thought the switching HIV test results was a good use of an old trope. I thought that he should have killed Fletcher or Buzz instead of Nadine but... I also liked the Nursery Rhyme Stalker...Holly didnt do anything that would make her irredeemable and it was fun to see smart Holly running around in her sexy stalker gear..plus it was funny, soaps have NOTORIOUSLY bad mothers running around.
I hope the Devil tortures Tripp after today lol. But it seems to be an anvil that he's next.
I honestly don't remember the last time Julie/John interacted. They don't very often at all like in their entire histories.
Weren't Ben/Ciara having the same dreams about their kid Bo Jr. like a month ago? Ben is correct, but I can understand Ciara being blindsided by this because he didn't mention it before. I guess they were too busy in bed to talk about their life plans. Also, you guys could adopt? Honestly, I don't care so I don't even know why I brought it up.
I thought the MarDevil stuff was good. I just can't take months of it. I clearly couldn't take it in the original story and I am not looking forward to it now.
