Shots of JR, Zach, David, Kendall and Krystal each pointing or handling a gun at the mansion. There's a run down of all their motives (plus Tad's) and what happens before they get to the mansion. 6 characters will be shown with a gun. There'll also be three sets of "high heels running around" - they'll be unidentified for a while BUT 2 of them are Liza and Erica.

"It's someone who matters a lot"?!

That's the best blurb from the story they could use for the cover?! LOL!

I guess it's better than "And nothing will ever be the same again"

Still can't believe AMC is doing this... <_<

Its soo stuart.

Ehh, when was they last time they used him for anything? Honestly?

I l;ove David C and all, but its not Adam.

I get what you're saying, but I put it in the same category as No-Goodbye-Episode-For-Brooke and No-Goodbye-Scene-Between-Sami-and-Marlena-and-John. It's not so much that they're doing it, because I get we live in different times now and TPTB feel that this is the new world of soaps -- but the lack of respect it shows to fans bothers me.

I can live with it as long as it's done right. But I'm worried in all the Adam-as-Stuart and Stuart-as-Adam shenanigans, the emotion will be lost. But I'll give it a chance.

I thought it's Stuart that dies, but everybody thinks its Adam, because Adam "pretends" to be Stuart? Or something like that. LoL. Anyways, I heard this may be an out for David Canary because of his health problems.

I think it actually provides a lot. People are going to be mourning Adam. And then... BAM Stuart is dead and has been and Adam has been alive all this time so then they mourn Stuart and lash out at Adam.

It all comes down to how its pulled off.

Which is why I don't have a lot of faith. LOL!

Well i pretty much love AMC again for the first time in a very long time and thats all because of Pratt, so that may be why im optimistic.

I mean even when its bad its still actually OK and watchable, and thats a lot more than i can say for the past.

I particularly loved this quote (AMC related) in the column of "PTB's say the HUH?-est things." It made me imagine somebody coming to her with the idea of Dixie's pancake death and the same reaction probably coming out of her. On finding out who Pratt was killing off, Carruthers says: "First, I gasped. And then I went, 'Oh my God, if I'm gasping this could be good...'"

    • I was probably the only one in the target age range at the time who was impressed by that lol.  ATWT seemed to me like GL's older (I know, I know, GL was first by a long shot, but you wouldn't have known it going by the cast members who were on the show by then), stable, more popular sibling, even if that popularity was waning.  As other soaps disappointed me, that sense of consistency started to appeal to me.  Even though I never found ATWT compelling long-term whenever I tuned in in those years, and of course it had as much turmoil behind the scenes as the other network/sponsor-owned shows by then.
    • Lol didn’t they kinda do that when GT’s Phyllis dyed her hair blonde?
    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
