Does anyone know if the Kim/Sabrina meet/reunion is on YouTube? I couldn’t find it during on a regular search. Maybe it’s tied to a daily episode or a compilation of JM’s best moments? 

 

I just remember it was remarkably authentic - especially for a sorta retcon - though I seem to remember that they showed an old clip of Kim ‘losing’ her baby. I was never a KH fan, but I was stunned at how beautifully acted those scenes were. OC, as a huge JM fan, she made everything great so I’m automatically biased by her work! 

 

Any guidance would be helpful. And I hope I’m not ‘over’ remembering how good it was!

It would be late Jan/ early Feb of 1987. I've seen episodes from late Jan with Bob...Kim and Frannie looking for Sabrina during that famous remote.

@Soapsuds Thank you! I’ll work with those dates. That’s right they were on location. Maybe a church. 

I think I found it.....the date is Feb 16, 1987...

 

 

Btw...ATWT ranked #3 the week Sabrina was reunited with Kim with a 7.9 rating. Up a whole ratings point via Vanessa Reasons 80s ratings post.

Open-marriage Susan would've been better to the boring Mom the character morphed into.  It was almost as if, Susan had to be "tamed" into eternal domesticity as retribution for her affair with Bob.  Most of the women characters were "dulled down" after the mid-late 90s.  They tried to make Carly "Superbad" to make up for all that dullness

I think Marland also tended to tone down many of the characters if they stayed on the canvas long-term, aside from Lucinda, as she had to be wicked in order to drive a ton of plots.

@Soapsuds The Kim/Sabrina scene was just as perfect as I remembered it! No dialogue. I'd forgotten about the quick cuts to the Mom/Child. Thank you for finding it for me! 

 

Separately, I'd forgotten that this was the end of the 'child' Emily. It was only when Melanie Smith was cast a few months later that it was believable that James would hook up with Emily. That 1987 cast was pretty darn solid (except for miscast Emily).

 

@DramatistDreamerDarn Marie Masters really could kick butt! And she should've never lost her edge. I loved the way she could flew in the face of all things wholesome and Stewart! 

 

The Marland-era work really did stand out.

Sorry - I thought you were talking about earlier with the mention of the affair. I felt like Susan was tamed around 1989 or 1990.

 

When she was hoeing it up with Dr. John and then Dr. Bob? 

Seriously though, I think she had her dalliance with John around 89, when Lucinda pushed her into the Christmas tree and she injured her back. She had the affair with Bob sometime around 90.

I was thinking farther along by the time she was with Larry.
