That's the same guy behind the Tonight Show Jay/Conan kafuffle as well. I don't know about this. The beauty of L&O the mothership was that the episodes were about the CASE, not the characters' personal lives and I don't trust Wolf/NBC not to screw that up. Besides, it's been over a decade. I say just leave it alone, but who knows.
I really don't understand these one-or-two episode temps.
I realize soap filming is a well-oiled machine but if someone has to be out for a couple of days for an illness or whatever, it seems it wouldn't be that hard to reschedule a handful of scenes to film a bit later that week, no? Is it really that time-sensitive?
To me their (too abrupt) shift to writing Jason as starting to get into the relationship with Carly after initially being shown to be very reluctant was telegraphing him getting there... just in time for Sonny to see them.
And something happened where story was rushed AND the drama was taken out of it. I bet Jarly doing it was specifically vetoed by someone.
But there is no way someone didn't have the parallel in mind; it really looked like they were setting it up.
I don't want to derail this fantastic conversation by ranting about the current events but I agree with amy: the writers knew about the history. The very way in which they showed Carly being gung-ho about wedding Jason as soon as the idea came up despite "not being in love" was very fitting with the way that relationship had been written all the way back to SJB days imo.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin has cast Carly Pope (Arrow, Popular),GL's Sharon Leal , ATWT's Lea Salonga (A.K.A. Broadway’s Miss Saigon), ATWT's Elena Goode and Zakiya Young (Iron Fist) as the moms of the new teen characters, our sister site Deadline reports.
I feel like my age is showing on this issue. As a gay man, I think there is power in coming out, and this feels like a justification. I'm willing to accept that Brooks hasn't consolidated his sexual identity, regardless of how he presents. But, to suggest that equality is about not "needing" to come out to your family says, to me, that Brooks' Mother feels that his sexuality is not a significant part of his identity, and that as a public figure, he shouldn't use the opportunity to support the cause of equality when he can demonstrate his pride about being gay. It seems tone deaf to suggest that kids who are strong enough to come out at the risk of loosing their parent's support are not as progressive as this guy who uses his family's exposure and money to promote a business rather than the cause of equality.
