I don't watch OLTL so I'm confused. How can Clint and Kim get custody of the baby if they are not related biologically? People still don't know Fish is the father?

Stacy begged Kim to take the baby if anything ever happened to her. Kim said she didn't like babies, so Stacy left the baby to Schuyler in her will. Now I'm thinking since they were best friends, that is the leverage Kim will use to get the baby. Her and Clint will marry, so it will look like they can give the baby a stable home life. And no people don't kow Fish is the father, they will think it's Schulyer. Kim knows that Fish is the father though.

Thanks. I still don't completely understand, but that is okay.

I think Khan watched OLTL during the 70s and 80s, right? Melinda was a more important character then. Melinda was with Dorian for most of the 70s and then returned for a few years in the late 80s when Robin Strasser fell out with Paul Rauch.

I would have rather seen Melinda return so we could see more of her relationships with Addie, Kelly, and Dorian, but since that was unlikely, and since killing off some of the other non-essential Cramers wasn't going to happen, then I'd rather see her go than Cassie.

Is killing off Melinda that big of a deal? Compared to Addie and Cassie, I'm relieved that is this character who I'm not familiar with lol.

Yes. It is. Especially when 1) she's killed off-screen (I hate it when writers do that), 2) there was a time when she was important to OLTL's canvas, and 3) plenty of mileage could've been had from re-introducing her and rebuilding her relationship w/ daughter Kelly.

I think Khan watched OLTL during the 70s and 80s, right?

My memories of OLTL go as far back as '81, but I've researched enough about this show to know how pivotal Melinda was, for instance, to the Jenny/Katrina baby switch.

I didn't know about the baby switch part. Was that because of her relationship with Peter Janssen?

I agree that they could have done a lot with her. Unfortunately I don't think they would have ever done so. I remember when they made Addie sane and I thought wow, think of all the story potential! And since then, it's been just about nothing. With four or five women over 50 already on the canvas and most of them struggling for story I don't think she would have had a chance. I do agree it's wasted potential. I would have rather seen River go, or Langston, or Starr.

Agree. Just as I doubt Viki's other half-brother, Tony Lord, would have much to do these days if they hadn't killed him off back in '83. And who knows? As they say, "No body, no death" (or, if you're Mitch, "Body, STILL no death").

OLTL has always been very kill happy, unfortunately. I still long for dear sweet Meredith.

I resent that they've brought back Kelly only to kill her mother within days of her return. It would have been nice to see at least ONE scene with Kelly and Melinda where Melinda had all her marbles, or a scene with the three Cramer sisters all sane. That is something I would have appreciated as a fan, I'm just disappointed that that's out the window.

Soap operas have so screwed with the concept of death it's hard to decide just what to get behind and accept. I wish I could have "known" Meredith, and it probably would have been easier if she'd died naturally than to violence, but that's one of those soap deaths that I've always respected. Hearing Viki occasionally refer to her sister sweetly (back when she used to) was nice, it reminds me of how my great-grandmother would fondly mention her sister who died in her twenties.

Like Khan, I also don't like that Melinda's apparently dying off-screen. And it's not like she's been around or in her right mind for years now, but it just seems wrong to kill off a character like that without any sort of farewell. I'm not saying that you can quite compare the popularity of the characters, but imagine if the writers had the *brilliant* idea to really shake things up and kill off Tina, off-screen, before AE had made her return for the 40th. How incredibly outraged and gypped we'd all feel. That's pretty much what I'm feeling, to an admittedly lesser degree. But I'm also well aware of the fact that I'm mourning most likely unrealized possibility.

If nothing else, I would love to see ONE LIFE answer the question of just how Addie and Melinda had their respective daughters to begin with! Perhaps, Kelly would've been in a situation where she needed to know her father's identity, but when she confronts Melinda, her mother leaps to her death (or at least a coma) rather than reveal the answer.

As always, I'm just saying.

I think Addie was raped by an orderly.

I think you and SFK both have so many good ideas for how this story would have had more impact. It's frustrating because we could have had even one or two episodes with Melinda, which didn't happen, yet we can have two strippers, and the awful Ford. But then I think the story is more about just giving Dorian a reason to act so erratic than for the actual plot. Most of the stories on OLTL tend to peter out. So if this is going to end with Langston and Blair being more focused on Langston's sex life and Starr on Todd and Dani (or Cole) than on Melinda's death, or what Dorian is going through, then I'd almost rather it be the less important of the characters. And this might give Kelly something to do, although as you said, I wish she'd had one or two scenes with Melinda before her death.

The show kills people off so casually and for no apparent reason, it's just about bargaining at this point. I still have no idea why Todd had no reaction to Rebecca's death, since I had assumed Todd's reaction was the one reason she was brought back.

The sad thing with Tina is that I almost feel like Malone killed her anyway with his dreadful 2003 rewrites of her as a deadbeat mother. Then when she returned, she was just trashed yet again, although Andrea did a good job.

I think it is a shame that they are going to kill Melinda...Seems like a waste.

I thought that they were going to make it look as if Cassie was murdered, only to have her pop back up later after Dorian loses her mind, or something like that.

I dont know, I just HATE when characters die off screen. It just really irks me. And I assume that's what will happen here.

Lately I really dislike Llangston (does she even HAVE a purpose, other than to prop up Ford)...So i wouldnt have minded if she was the "victim" of some sort of attempted murder, but in the end I was hoping no oen would die...I was wrong.

    • Every time I see FV or LW interviewed about Carly's upcoming storylines, they always say "...and of course Carly stomps in and throws her weight around, because that's Carly being Carly!" Basically, the show has a specific, one-dimensional view of the character, and they keep it simple like that because they assume that fans live for Carly 'kicking ass' and being a 'boss.' And LW, who is both popular and polarizing, delivers on that characterization.  GH missed a trick with the Jason wedding. Jason has always been the one who got away. Sonny was kind of Carly's second choice back in the day because Jason never really wanted her. And Carly was able to suppress that rejection because she had Jason emotionally tied to her via Michael for years. She put up with being friend-zoned for +2 decades, but the wedding should have been the dam breaking for her, where finally, FINALLY, Jason was going to be all hers. Finally she had another chance to make him fall in love with her the way she had always been with him. And then Sonny comes back, and of course she HAS to get back with Sonny but... And thereupon we have new storyline of five people featuring Carly, Jason Britt, Sonny and Nina, and with Carly perhaps no longer willing to keep her frustrated desire under lock-and-key anymore.  And with Jason presumed dead, this could send Carly in a tailspin where she is forced to come to terms with having her 'second chance' with Jason nipped from her grasp. Anyhoo, I'm doing what a lot of viewers do which is "If I was HWing this sh!t..."
    • I wouldn't put the demise of Miami all at Adriana's door. She wasn't the only one lying -- Joanna marrying Romain reeked of insta-TV wedding. Honestly, I blame production for pushing 'Duelling Weddings' as THE ONLY storyline sustaining 16 episodes. Weddings aren't quite the draw Bravo thinks they are, and it was boring watching hours of these chicks trying on dresses, etc. Season 3 suffered from: -a reduced wider cast; -No Mama Elsa (a major factor IMO); -no lightening-rod Karent; -increased toxicity amongst the women.  By the end, most of the cast clearly couldn't stand each other, or were drumming up a bunch of insta-fights (Lisa vs Joanna, Marysol's never-ending hounding of Lea). Lea was ready to peace out of the franchise altogether before it even ended. Reunion was a disaster because the rest of the cast were desperate to make S4 happen and just threw anything at the wall to see what stuck. Adriana, whatever you may think about her, was highly dramatic and a big pot-stirrer. I think she deserves a spot more than Larsa, but we will see how the Miami reboot shakes out. I do worry that we haven't seen any trailer or promo for this, unlike RHUGT which was trailed over a month in advance.
    • It helps that Ben doesn't have a long history with John (they've barely interacted) + it plays into the stroke John had which led to him having outbursts. So it's not completely out of the realm that Ben would believe her and even think it was possible because of above factors.
