Kelly was another fail recasting on soaps but who lasted for years.  Great actress, wrong role.  Melanie was so Susan like. They had a gold mine with that actress and could have found a similar replacement.  I never liked the character after Melanie left.

I don't think Menighan was the problem. It was the writing for her in the role.

Can anyone guess what's different about this episode? If your a long time fan and paid attention to every "word" you'll get it.

 

 

I'm still watching it, but the repartee between John and Lucinda where John asks her "Can I borrow your bathtub?" sounds like incredible foreshadowing. I also chuckle whenever I see that, in the midst of the verbal jousting between them, John still finds the time and wherewithal to tell Lucinda how good she looks. More breadcrumbs.

 

Just as an aside, I always found it cute that John and Dusty had that special "too much to do" handshake.

The dialogue doesn't sound very Marlandish. I wish there was more of the Doug Cummings saga. The stuff with Doug is giving me Henry Slezar/EON vibes. I didn't realize John already knew Lucy's real name. Years before DM did her origin story. It's nice to see Jay still around. Also like seeing Jay and Heather playing  supporting roles. In the Cummings story. Marie was a hoot. The show felt very vibrant and edgy.  And not stuffy like it became later.

Iva must've been stalking Lucinda for months, as it was several months before she was revealed to be behind those phone calls.

 

I could see how penny-pinching P&G might have thought the cast needed to be culled. Those Halloween party scenes are chaotic.

I liked Iva in 1985. She had some Nola in her. Later on she became wimpy and boring.

And Iva circa 1985/6 had a youthful style..that became matronly in by the early 90s

Iva had great chemistry with teen Lily.  That whole story with Josh Snyder was one of my favorite SL's.

Got too distracted by a young Scott Bryce.

He looked like an adult to me back then.  Today, he looks like a baby. OMG!
