    Yes, I follow it obsessively. My only complaint is that it only gets updated once or twice a week.

    In the "80s compilation #2 vid that yrfan23 posted in the Lost Era playlist, there is a quick clip at 0:06 of LS' Patty fingering a letter opener, looking murderous... I want to see that entire scene so bad!

    Finally watched episode 4. I am entranced by Lilibet Stern’s Patty! Combination of great acting and writing. What a loss her departure was. Her Patty has so many layers. It was fascinating to watch Carl slowly dismantle Patty’s Stepford demeanor, and present some excellent arguments against Patty’s plan. Carl smartly did not criticize Jack, no matter how much he wanted to. He accurately pointed out that it’s not fair to Jack, or anyone, for Patty to get pregnant in this manner. But she is completely lost in her fantasy, and can not process his advice. Is Patty’s mindset within the realm of normal behavior, or is she demonstrating the beginnings of mental illness? She grew up in a stable household with loving parents. Reading the ’81 synopses, it appears that Patty went off the rails when she learned that Paul was not taking responsibility for baby Heather. She couldn’t believe that her big brother, who she admired so much, could act this way, and this threw her belief system awry. Soon after, she snuck out to a country bar and met Jack. I guess she transferred all her hopes and dreams of a stable life, from her own family to Jack. On a superficial note – is that a mullet hairstyle she is rocking? Not the most flattering, nor the dress. But LS’ beauty shines through ☺

    ^agreed, I bet BB had the Abbott house set built in spring '82 when he decided to expand the Abbotts past Jack. If Mamie appeared before that, it was probably a one-off.

    I've seen some sources listing Marguerite Ray's debut as 1980. But the YR 25th book says 1982. Hmmmm edit: here's MR's bio in her own words, and she says she was YR for 10 years http://oaklandtech.com/staff/centennial/2015/03/11/marguerite-ray-june-48/

    Anyone know exactly when Mamie debuted? I have a feeling that for awhile, she was referred to but not seen. I noticed that happen in two of these "lost eps". Same thing in the May '82 ep that used to be on YT, when Patty says Mamie was very welcoming after she moved in. The first synopsis mention I see is after John and Jill's marriage, when Jill and Mamie argue over household finances.

    I read this quote too, but it confused me. From '78-'79, Jill tricked Stuart Brooks into marriage by pretending she was pregnant, and tried and failed to get a divorce settlement from him. For the rest of '79, before BD left, she went back to plotting with Derek how to fleece Katherine of her money. So... seems like Jill of the late '70s was already a schemer - not sure why BD was so thrown off when she came back.

    Watched episode 3... Esther pop-up! I assume it was Kate Linder... I could only see a body walking by, but no face. We briefly heard the voice but couldn't tell if it was KL. Substitute Carl was hot!

    Ah, very interesting! Never considered this motivation but it makes perfect sense. I saw the scenes from '75 or '76 where Phillip (right before he dies) promises Jill he will financially take care of her family, and she looks so relieved.

    Looking through the '82 SOD recaps - pretty certain they didn't leave town together. After this March episode just posted, I only see one more mention of Karen in the recaps, when she finally signs Andy's divorce papers. Lucas stays on through summer '82 to help Lorie with her revenge plot against Victor (which she winds up abandoning when JLB quits). The 9/26/82 recap details Lorie leaving town and saying goodbye to Lucas, but I can't find any mention of him after that, so who knows if he got an official farewell scene? The only person left for him to possibly say goodbye to was Leslie. Also can't find any farewell mentions for Chris or Greg.

    Patty was still on the show for most of 1984, after she left Jack's orbit. She was brought into the Danny/Traci/Lauren story. Danny gave Patty hope that they could be together, but Danny was in the sham marriage with Traci, because Traci wanted it kept secret that she was pregnant with Professor Tim's baby. I found the SOD recap (dated 12/4/84) covering Patty's departure! "Patty has come to the realization that there is nothing left for her in GC. Danny and Traci appear to be getting closer to each other with each passing day. Besides, Danny blames Patty for Traci's accident. Arriving at the conclusion that her relationship with Danny is over, Patty tells her brother she's leaving town. Paul attempts to talk her out of the decision, but to no avail. Patty has a very touching farewell with her mother. It comes as a complete shock to Mary that her daughter is leaving, but Patty promises to return as soon as she can straighten out her personal life"

    Casey wanted him! But she finally bailed when he could not separate himself from Leslie

    Just watched episode 2 - I love Deborah Adair's Jill, as evidenced by my avatar! I think she ranks as my favorite Jill of all. Agreed with @DRW50 that DA's Jill scenes with Liz didn't quite nail the mother-daughter dynamic. DA's Jill has a more refined, patrician way of speaking, and Liz is less refined... she'll leave the "g" off of words, like "thinkin" instead of "thinking". Jill was raised in the lower middle-class home by Liz, so this disparity doesn't really add up. But regardless, they're both fantastic. Interesting for Liz to note that Jack is older than Jill - not sure if I ever knew that. Or maybe this fact was "forgotten" once BD took back the role. I do believe that Jill is in love with John Abbott. I also believe she loves his money! How ironic that Jack is so afraid that Jill will take some control of Jabot. She eventually does... but only because of the scandal that ensued after he slept with her, lol! I thought the Claire/janitor scene would end with Robert discovering them... not with Claire choking the janitor!! This fits in with the "gothic" tone that sometimes permeated YR from '79-'81. This is the first time I'm seeing the Carolyn character, and she seems like a snoozefest. Kevin also, while cute, is milquetoast. I think this ep is right when MTS leaves for maternity leave? Maybe this deal she made with God to leave Kevin is why she disappears for a few months.

    Yea, Leslie sticks around for another 6 months after Lance. Bill Bell wasn't quite ready to give up on Victoria Mallory! Hmmm I've seen those '84 Brooks scenes but don't recall any mention of Lance being with either Lorie or Leslie.
