Soaps' most memorable twin stories


Recommended Posts

I really loved Rose on ATWT. That was a depressing goodbye. She died a horrible, tragic death for no reason.

I has dropped out of GH when the other Emily showed up. I can't even remember her name. Rebecca? Was she a twin?

Kristen is a fun character, and Susan was pretty entertaining. Not the rest IMO.

Yeah, Rebecca was Em's twin. -_- That had to be one of the worse twin reveal stories.

I was hot and cold when it came to Rose. Somedays I liked her. Other days I didn't. It depended on the story. I was kind of glad that Babs had Will poison Rose. :lol: One Walsh twin was enough and I'll settle for Lily, the one I grew up watching (even though she irked my nerves too).

I'll always carry a torch for Vicky/Marley. They were the best set of soap twins IMO. At least when Anne Heche played them. I loved watching her play them during the SoapNet run (as it was a bit before my time), and "Who Shot Jake" furthered my love for them. I loved that Vicky championed Marley and wanted vengeance. Sucks because that'd all come crashing down when they made Vicky marry Jake at the end of AW--a decision I still don't care for to this day. I preferred them as frenemies or friends at the most. Lovers? Yuck. And Marley going cray cray and coming back as Ellen Wheeler didn't please me much either.

I dug Rose more than Lily. But I thought they killed her at the right time. I also think DAYS has made a mistake not bringing Susan back, maybe with a bit of orthodontic surgery.

I had a really bizarre twin story in mind for GL once, Blake and Ross's two sons, but it was inherently flawed in that it required them to be retconned into being identical when they were, of course, fraternal. My utterly sound logic was 'who gives a [!@#$%^&*], we never see them.'

I always wished that GL would've SORASED them when Phillip returned in the end. It would've been so good.

On my GL blog that I used to do on here, I intended for Kevin to be the upstanding twin like Ross and for Jason to embrace his Thorpe side. tongue.png He'd be like good ole' grandpa, Roger. I wanted Kevin to be conflicted as he really wanted to go into medicine, but went into law (like his late father) to appease Blake. Kevin, once believed to be Rick's son, would grow close to Rick--view Rick as a mentor, which would unnerved Blake. She still holds ill will towards him for his part in Ross' death, and she does not want her son anywhere near him.

Eventually, Kevin would've flunked out of law school, pissing off Blake, and he'd follow his passion apply for medical school; however, Blake isn't for it. She's not paying for him. Ed and Rick would try and coax her into allowing Kevin his dream, but she is not bending. She wants him to be like Ross. Holly (the sensible one) would undermine Blake's wishes and dig into a trust that Roger left for Kevin to help him pay for his tuition. Blake would be pissed but would eventually grow to accept Kevin's dream ... even though she still does not want him near Rick.

Jason, on the other hand, would've followed his grandpa's footsteps. He's a womanizer. A dreamer. An aspiring businessman. I wanted him to intern under Alan and Phillip at Spaulding while secretly dismantling the company with coaching from a bitter Alan Michael. Jason would hate the Spauldings for everything they've done to his dad and grandpa. Even though he and Phillip are related, his hatred for him is blind. I would've also had him target Rick by having him court Leah and turn her against her father, who Leah already has a strained relationship with. He could've been this generation's Roger.

Ugh! The possibilities with these two could've been endless. A modern day Cain (bad brother) vs. Abel (good brother). And eventually SORASING Clarissa and making her into a little neurotic minx like her grandmother and mother....wub.png

I hate P&G.

Pretty much loathed Rose from day one. But the reveal was hilarious, just for Holden's line "ugh....that's your real voice?" I was glad the beyotch died. At that point, even I missed Lily.

How has the epic Sonni/Solita saga not been mentioned yet?

    • The Lily reveal is what everyone brings up, but I thought her romance with Kirk was better. Their breakup broke my heart.  "Damn you---damn you for making me want and hope for things I could never, ever have with a man like you..." I constantly complain about the writing for Iva in the ATWT thread, but never, ever about Lisa's performance. She never phoned her scenes in. 
    • So we've all seen the famous lab fight between Lauren and Sheila, but I don't think we've seen any of the aftermath till now!    
    • The sad irony of Tick Tick Boom is that it was patterned after Jonathan Larson's one man show about his real life anxiety about not being able to make a career as a theater composer and running out of time (hence the title) It debuted on Broadway posthumously.
    • It was Craig. It took place in the barn at the Snyder farm, the episode before she took the backbreaking fall. Craig was breaking up with her because he wanted to reunite with Sierra and Iva knows that this is what's happening and she knows he wants to let her down easy, so in the process although her heart is breaking, she tries to help smooth the way for him to end the relationship. No screaming and shouting, which is the usual Emmy bait but she did great work and it was memorable. I don't remember which scene she submitted for her Emmy reel for the '88 Daytime Emmy awards, do you remember?  It was a shame that Ellie and Kirk ended it getting married because Iva and Kirk were a much more entertaining and dynamic fit. I thought each was the others' best pairing on the show but I don't know if one particular scene stood out for the Emmys, it was more about the banter they had and the obvious chemistry that Brown and Tom Wiggins had. It's just one of those quirks of the Daytime Emmys that Brown was never nominated for her work on Guiding Light despite how incredibly popular her character obviously was.   My main point is that I don't think that her best work from ATWT is even on YouTube.
    • I didn't like the album either.  I only liked three songs: Easy on Me, Can I Get It, Oh My God.   She said this in the interview with Vogue: And she still takes measures to avoid ramping up her fame. She avoided writing a certain kind of song for the next album, for instance. “There isn’t a bombastic ‘Hello,’ ” she tells me at one point. “But I don’t want another song like that. That song catapulted me in fame to another level that I don’t want to happen again. I’m not saying I’ve got ‘Hello’s in my pocket. I was just conscious that I didn’t want my story on this album to sound like that.”   I love songs like: Someone Like You, Rolling in The Deep, Set Fire to The Rain, Turning Tables, Hello, Water Under The Bridge, Send My Love (To Your New Lover), When We Were Young. Those songs had very good melodies and production - they are tier 1 and tier 2 songs for me.   The three songs that I liked on this new album are not tier 1 or tier 2 songs.
