Guiding Light discussion thread in DTS: Cancelled Soaps Posted Wednesday at 09:17 PM · Edited Wednesday at 09:37 PM by j swift · Report reply 1 hour ago, redontop4 said: Nadine's exit actually bothered me more than Maureen's. At least Mo was given a big, very dramatic, exquisitely written, beautifully produced send-off. Nadine's was quick and cheesy and ultimately macabre My recollection is slightly different. Nadine's murder was shocking because it raised the stakes in Brent's plot to where it felt like any character could be at risk. Most soap serial killers only kill off superfluous characters, so when someone that close to Lucy died it had a great deal of impact. Although, your point is well taken that Mo's family got better written, (and performed), grieving scenes. The exception is that most of her family of origin wasn't around to watch grieve by the time she left this mortal coil. Also, I vaguely recall that SOW did not have spoilers that the actress was leaving, which contributed to the surprise. However, I think that the SOW editors did not approve of either the violence or the loss of the character.
