    As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    I read Jean Rouverol's book three or four times in the 2000s. It's excellent! Obviously outdated now in terms of some of the specifics, but it's great. Totally worth picking up if you find a copy.

    Characters with multiple backstories

    I think that was the story where the Alan Jackson thing came out, but I'm not sure. I've seen it described different ways, but that was definitely the period (like '83?) where Neil's "true" identity was revealed. I need to do some research!

    Characters with multiple backstories

    Does Neil Curtis from DAYS fit this one? For his first, oh, ten years on the show, he was "just" Neil Curtis, doctor and cad. I'm pretty sure viewers met his father and his cousin (Johnny?). In the 80s, there was some reveal about his actual identity being "Alan Jackson" and that Neil Curtis was either a stolen identity or an alias. I might have it wrong and Alan Jackson was the alias, but from what I've read, it didn't track, and the existence of Curtis relatives didn't make sense with what was revealed later on.

    Characters That Never Got A Proper Send-off

    Cassie was in that stupid castle with Jack. She made it back to Salem (Alexis Thorpe filmed, like, one or two episodes). When Rex left town, there was mention that he was going to live with Cassie. Did Susan Martin really just vanish? I know the recast wasn't well liked, but it sounded like she pretty decisively left Salem to be with Eric Peters and their daughter, Annie. Was that just something they said after the fact? At least Holly on GL got that ending with Ed. It was rushed and odd, but it was nice to have a final note for the characters. I was also glad that AMC brought Brooke back -- having her around for the final months was lovely.

    DAYS: Fan favorite Makes A Return

    My guess would be that she shows up as Susan but it's really Kristen impersonating Susan.

    B&B Actress Talks Status

    Was coming in to post the exact same thing. I think she'd be great in that role, and that's a character they could really use to fill a hole in the canvas.

    Days Promo - Kidnapped

    They almost made this one dramatic!
  8. This is absolute insanity and I can't WAIT to see how terribly it turns out. I think there's an in-between with SORASing that works. If a character is supposed to be, say, 11 or 12, and then they cast an actor to play 16, whatever. You're just kind of eclipsing a few years, and especially if the parents are old enough to have a kid that age, fine. That makes sense to me. It's when they completely screw with timelines that it becomes damaging.

    Yeah, WTF was that? Was he unable to get a fake ID that said "Chandler Massey"?

    I think it first appeared (new furniture and all) on Wednesday.

    Days: Actress leaving...

    I'm actually shocked. Totally thought she'd be a lifer. I've loved AZ and Nicole for years, but I do think the character could use a rest. This last year of Daniel/Deimos BS has made her really tiresome.

    Ditto. I'm surprised by how interested I am when Valerie appears on the screen. Where did they get the stage space for that huge-ass bathroom in Rafe's house? And how are they going to repurpose it over the next month? I'm surprised they didn't just hold Holly's custody hearing in there.

    Considering... well, everything, the funeral hasn't been bad. They hit a lot of nice notes. David hasn't been onscreen in 34 years, which is ridiculous, but given that, at least Julie's actually getting to mourn him. I liked Ciara and Claire ten times more in their interactions with Julie than when they're sniping and bitching at one another, too. Ridiculous that Hope wasn't there. I know, actor guarantees, blah blah, but come on. It just makes her (and Rafe) come off as even more self-centered. And Maggie was very enjoyable in most of the episode. Until... Valerie: "And I'm so sorry about YOUR SON!" Maggie: "HE WAS A GOOD MAN!" E.Nough!!!!!

    I'm pleasantly surprised!
