You have me, there. OUCH.
Absolutely. To their credit, the show did bring back Barbara Berjer in 1995 as Barbara Norris, but I don't think Barbara was utilized enough at that time. There was so much history between Barbara and Roger, for example. Roger always hated Barbara for her constant interference in Holly's life. In fact, they should have brought in Roger's father, Adam Thorpe (Robert Milli), on a contract basis to further complicate things - Adam and Barbara had been married in the 1970's. As it was, Barbara left again in 1996.
Then, TPTB brought Roger Newman as Ken Norris in 1998, but again - I don't think they had a good plan on what to do with him. Imagine if both Ken *and* Andy suddenly arrived on Holly's doorstep - Ken being released from the mental institution and looking to reconnect with his family, and Andy also being released from prison around the same time - Ken having learned his lessons, but Andy not having learned a thing and concocting his next big scheme, which probably would have had something to do with Spaulding Enterprises.
That's correct. CC's knowledge was: some random woman saved Cruz's life right as his oldest daughter died and is suddenly around all the time. She tried to buy the Orient Express and CC refused to sell. He finds out his daughter isnt dead. Rando woman is trying to kill his children. Rando woman has been shot and says Cruz killed me Daddy. Alex confirms it after she's dead. So, really other than giving Pamela a goodbye boink before sending her packing, CC did nothing wrong to Elena.
Speaking of Pamela, why. WHY? I can sort of understand why Sophia is insecure. But these marriage problems are on her. She won. CC is hers. I really wish she would stop shrieking at him.
