It's gotta be Mitch?! Who else could it be? I can't think of anybody else who Roxy would be so afraid of.

OMG IK is rocking as Roxy in those scenes with the mystery patient. I want more! They should give her material like this more often, I was a huge fan of hers when she was on RH.

I have hated this show for almost two months, but today is very, very good.

OLTL never does old fashioned soap opera suspense anymore and Roxie's scenes are what I like. I don't even want to know who is in that hospital bed!

Dorian and David-perfect. Funny, but not in the stupid way that OLTL goes too far with. David and "MY ACTING." Love it.

Matthew and Bo- Nice.

I like Brandon Buddy and don't get why everyone thinks he is terrible. Kristen on the other hand today, is as awful as ever. Just terrible. And those looks on her face that she does, and those weird mouth things she does- She is godawful. She cannot handle adult stuff. Recast this chick. RECAST HER.

And I agree with everyone^^ Robin looks 200 times better and YOUNGER with her natural hair and not those damn campy wigs they stick her with.

I was just saying how great Robin looks for her age having never had a facelift (neck yes, but not face). Maybe it helps that she's looking up in all these scenes. :P

WHO IS IT!?!?!? I don't think it's Mitch, because even in a coma wouldn't he have to be in some sort of prison hospital? I am sitting here racking my brain.

Guys, please assure me that it isn't Victor Lord. PLEASE. I would be so through with this show. I don't think RC would go there.

Hmmm... who else was despicable? Not Carlo, not Powell :P ... are we opposed to the idea that it's someone we don't know? I know that wouldn't be much of a payoff, but...

Too bad Gerald Anthony is no longer with us, wouldn't it be fun to see Marco with Roxie as Rex's parents?

And wouldn't it be crazy if they originally planned for the man in the hospital bed to be Asa who'd faked his death, was in cahoots with Roxie, and was now in some sort of health crisis?

Could it be Gigi's and Stacy's presumed dead dad!?!? :o:huh::mellow:;):P:rolleyes:

I'm just going to enjoy the ride for now. Until it's revelaed, I'm telling myself that Rex's dad is Evangeline.

Sadly i don't think the show knows who it is. I have a feeling OLTL is rewrite central these days.

Wow, as of the last few weeks, I've actually thought the opposite.

Also too, I'm not ruling out the possibility that Rex's dad is NOT who Roxie thinks he is.

Ilene Kristen's superb but I can't get into the rest of this story as long as there's a possibility Mitch is the father. The idea of the overacting frenzy in scenes between Mitch, Gigi, and Rex is enough to make the sets take out restraining orders.

    • Yuh-Jung Youn just won the Supporting Actress BAFTA, which is a boost for her Oscar prospects. Would be only the second actress of Asian descent (to my knowledge) to win an Oscar after Miyoshi Umeki for Sayonara in 1958.
    • RHoJohannesburg   @Cheap21 @Chris B maybe not over yet?         RHOA   What? Not Finale Promo when it's actually NEXT WEEK!!!!    
    • Wendy Riche spoke about dealing with the network when she wanted to tell an AIDS story before the Labine had decided on Stone and Robin. She had gone to the network about having A.J. Quartermaine contract the disease from a situation that would leave people asking who slept with who. Of course, it's also rumored that Marland intended for Hank Eliot, not his lover Charles, to die of the disease. In both scenarios, there is definitely a concern about perpetuating a stereotype that gay men are promiscuous.    Here's the transcript from the Riche interview on WeLoveSoaps:     I'm watching a bit of 1995. There is a scene that I watched, before seeing this more recently, where A.J. shows up at the gatehouse and crashes a girls' night with Brenda and Lois. I believe the purpose of the scene is for Ned to walk in and be upset that A.J. is meddling, but there are moments where I feel like A.J. enjoyed just dishing the dirt with the ladies and that the show was testing the waters at pre- "Will and Grace" dynamic between A.J. and the ladies. It's entirely possible I completely misread the scene as well.   
    • It’s hard. These shows just weren’t built with us in mind. I feel like there was a small window to tell really strong LGBTQ stories in the early-to-mid ‘90s when society had advanced enough to be somewhat inclusive and soaps had become more grounded after their ‘80s flights of fancy yet still had quality and budget.     These remaining soaps are a lost cause. They are essentially zombies coasting on a mostly conservative audience born before the Kennedy administration. They can barely tell watchable stories about *anything.*   Most primetime portrayals don’t even really do it for me. Ryan Murphy has been an absolute scourge. The best screen depictions of gay men for me have always been movies like “My Beautiful Laundrette” and “Happy Together” and the rare TV series like the British version of “Queer As Folk.” (Hope the new one set in New Orleans can approach that quality.)
    • I agree with y'all, and I guess that's why I'm easier on soaps and other shows if they don't necessarily get it right. I'm not easy on them enough to still watch or support something I don't like, but I do think that "trying" is worth something. After being excited for a short while, I ended up absolutely HATING Luke/Noah on ATWT and thought they were embarrassing. But other gay men, especially the older ones who'd been watching the show for years and years, loved them. So while they just made me roll my eyes, I understood that they meant more to others. Still wanted that relationship blown to smithereens for something more fun, but y'know. GLEE. I hated it. But what it did for many gay youth can't be denied. I know that someone will reply that there were other majorly problematic things with the show, but my point is that it served tons of gay kids who otherwise would not have gotten that confidence boost or feeling of community.
