Elena was written into a corner without any redemption possible, nor any potential love interests. Her death brought Pamela back to town, and the casting of Pamela was one of the reasons cited by the Dobsons for their fight with the production which got them locked out of their offices.
So, it marks the end of the line for the first rein of the Dobsons and a newfound creative period for the show.
I see that Jason's kids didn't get an invite to the wedding. This wedding is so cringy and dull. I don't care about the drama with Vincent Novak. And we have Spinelli giggling like a schoolgirl as Carly walks down the aisle. Yuck.
Nixon Falls was much more interesting today than the wedding. Things are happening. Nina is totally in the wrong but I'm not even really that mad at her because Cynthia Watros is just really good. It was good to see Max Gail. LOL at Sonny's first memory being him smashing barware. He's back, now let's get him to the wedding ASAP so we can have a hell of a Friday cliffhanger tomorrow.
I'm rewatching the entire Mary McKinnon storyline. And I love it so much. I got to her memories returning today. Part of me wishes that Mary and Vince had stayed on the canvas longer. But the other part is happy that they were allowed to go off and live happily ever after.
