I didn't think it was bad at all! Crossposting from the GH thread - with WL's performance, I genuinely saw the pain of a teenager reacting to a loved one dying rather violently (mind you this character has gone though SEVERAL losses over the last few years). I also find the comparisons to WR's performance unfair - with WR, I just saw a classically trained actor who got lost on his way to a Shakespearian Theatre and ended up on the GH soundstage.

To the Angel that uploaded the full confrontation from January 1984 between Jill and Kay where Jill accuses Kay of sending the pictures, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have been looking for that ever since I saw it on YouTube over 10 years ago and then it was deleted! I've watched it like 10 times already! Hopefully there's more rare stuff to come from the '83-'84 era!

Those scenes between Jill and Larry are hilarious. Katherine putting the screws to Jill while admiring Larry's physique, lol.

 

Crazy to look at that 92 episode and see Nicholas and consider where he's be in less than two years.

To see the Chancellor mansion so full of people! I'd forgotten that Dru lived at the Abbott's. Was that because of Mamie?

So many future relationships between the younger generation that the show never made good on. Kate and Nate should've had some type of friendship. Kate and Lil' Phillip/Chance should have been in and out of each other's lives. But then we got "Chloe" and everything went out the window.

So Paul and Lynn actually dated? I knew Lynn had a thing for Paul but I never remembered whether things went any further.

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I thought Cricket and Danny were a fun, cute couple. Christine became so solemn and stern later on, with a life flof near constant crisis and tragedy.

So what was this whole story of Carl Williams? in 1998 we learned he supposedly disappeared 8 years ago but nothing was mentioned about this in real time? 

 

Carl disappeared and had been gone eight years before Paul and Christine convinced Mary to have him declared legally dead. Then Mary finally accepted the attentions of Charlie Ockell. They were getting along well, and Charlie asked her to marry him. Paul's current girlfriend Christine happened to be helped by a man working as a security guard at the Norfolk airport, and later when Paul showed her a photo of his missing father, she realized that the security guard was Carl. Without telling Paul, she returned to Norfolk and found that he was going by the name of Jim Bradley.

From my recollection (and someone can fill in the details), Paul knows that his father is still alive and he as met him since then. I don't remember whether Mary was ever made aware of this, but instinct says no, that she was never told the truth.

 

Paul witnessed Mary seeing "Jim" for the first time and fainting. When Mary came to, Carl told her about his amnesia and Ruthie. Mary was convinced that despite his love for Ruthie, her love could bring back the past, and she and Carl would be happy together again, so told Charlie the wedding was off. But try as she might, Mary could never bring back Carl's memory of them, and he later returned to Norfolk and Ruthie, and no doubt were married as planned. Charlie apparently never forgave Mary, and she was again left with her only pastime-meddling in Paul's life.

Looks like you answered your own question.

April 1997 with a week full of the eps  is up in the Vault, boy with the 4/11/97 it certainly is attack of recasts with Sarah Aldrich, Sandra Nelson, and Sherri Shattuck all being heavily featured in the episode. Of the three Nelson is by far and beyond the best of course; Sarah Aldrich is dreadful in her scenes with Ryan, while Ashley is the stuck in the depths of hell with a triangle between her, Kurt, and Hope developing. 
 

Hopefully the rest of the week gets better lol.

Had there been internet back then, that story would have caused a ruckus.

Totally invented plot that did not play out onscreen.

Up till that point Carl had gone from regular to occasional presence, mentioned then not spoken about, but never stated to be missing.

The funny thing was it did create up a bit of a stir on the Internet at the time from what I remember amongst older fans, even so far as to creating a Mandela effect for some older viewers as a few were quite sure that they *did* remember the Carl disappearance storyline.  With Y&R not being one to do retcons at that point or definitely felt out of place, and the story wasn’t that great. I’ll always remember Leslie Bevis for her hilarious Star Trek parody character in the movie Spaceballs more than anything else.
