Can I just say how believable Marcy Walker is in playing the angry Eden when confronting the whole CC in the coma situation? She has chemistry with everybody right now. I might not be the fan of her character but I have to give it to the actress - well played and well deserved of all those Emmys later
Also, just a quick question and a thought - I don't like paranormal, supernatural in my soaps. Am I correct that SB never did that, even later on? I believe the only soaps that did do that at a certain point in the late '80s and '90s were Guiding Light, One Life to live and Days, particularly the last one.
I think there is an interesting contrast of Lily v Andy. Now Andy had a very involved mother who was nothing like Lucinda or Iva for that matter- but his family had crap loads of drama (it’s a soap) and his father was really a bad guy- John raped his mother among many other crimes. His parents worked and with a father and stepfather who were doctors they were busy - the show would have John and/or Bob at the hospital at all hours. One could argue too busy to be constantly with Andy - something Lily and the writers constantly drag Lucinda.
As to Lily, they established Lucinda was always busy and she was devious. The problem is trying to sell Lily not having warmth and love growing up- or she was lonely (go make some friends at school or the country club- your mama ain’t your confidant or playmate she is your mother)-I never bought it - that is not what I saw on my screen- I saw a character constantly adored. I remember a scene where Lily whines to Holden she grew up without love- now kids can truly believe they are not loved but it was clear onscreen that Lucinda loved Lily. A simple fix for me would have been someone calling her out on her nonsense - they did it with Andy and his drinking, with John and his crap, etc. I think that was the crux - letting her crap go unchallenged- while the writer may have wanted her to have unattractive qualities - in the totality of the circumstances, it came off as everyone was suppose to agree with her and like those qualities.
About John, what happened with him and Dee. How was what he did not rape?
Lol! First off I said I don't care if they kill Freddie off and I meant Sonny. I don't wish bodily harm to Freddie Smith. I may or may not edit it lol.
The show doesn't have to kill off Sonny. I don't mind him or FS honestly. I just think it might be easier for Will to move on without the specter of Sonny showing up at any moment and I feel like the show, regardless of regime, is too afraid to take Sonny/Will too far from one another.
I just don't believe "I will never come back!" from a young guy like him with a wife to support. They may have a ton of other things going on but I can't imagine their you tube channel makes a ton of money, but what do I know?
FS was let go. Fired. To me, it sounds like someone who is saying it's so awesome he got fired because he's found so many better things to do, but would totally be on board if Days called lol.
