But. Twinkle lights.
And in fairness to Rachel's funeral dress, which wedding to Mac was that?
But I do agree that Cassie's was atrocious.
I think Felicia's worst hat is not a wedding hat.
I'm a product of my age and kind of secretly love the big meringue wedding dresses. And the psuedo Victorian ones.
About the real-life pregancies of actress Susan Lucci:
The first time that she was having a baby, it was written into the script. She was married to Philip Brent, and he had bought her a house (which was later purchased from her by Myrtil, who turned it into a boarding house). Erica lost the baby, but she would not accept that she had miscarried. She had Phil to bring her bed into the living room of the house and kept talking about when the baby arrives. Eventually (when Ms. Lucci actually took a maternity leave), it was decided that she was too deluginal and would have to be placed in a sanitertarium for mental patients. When she was released, it was feared by so many that Philip (who had tried to be a good faithful husband to her during her time of not knowing that the baby was not coming) would hurt her by telling her that the marriage was over and she would relapse.
On the second time that she was taking a maternity leave, Erica moved to Hollywood, where she was sure that she would be in demand as an actress and movie star. She eventually returned to Pine Valley as a very disinchanted person. She said that everyone out there only wanted her to remove her clothes or to sleep to get a role.
I absolutely cannot condone murdering Joey Perrini. Not that it makes a difference in the way retcons work, but did Sally at the time succeed in seducing Joey onscreen? I have a vivid recollection of her drugging him and staging a scenario where Eileen caught them apparently in flagrante in the back of a van, but I have been scanning the AWHP synopses for 1979 and 1980 and I don't find any description of Joey and Sally actually having sex even though the character guide does list them as lovers.
David Thatcher made a good murder victim as a villainous outsider nobody cared about who had already murdered Uncle Kevin.
My enjoyment of Kevin boiled down to Sally's clear love for him and a comment that Mary Page Keller made about how much the child actor looked like her as a child. And if he had remained on the canvas he could have been SORASed and interacted with Maggie (and Cory and Jeanne and whoever else) and been integrated with the Matthewses, come to terms with his parentage, and so on. (But I would also have moved Brittany out of Catlin's orbit sooner so that her baby was Zane's or Peter's or Mitch's or Michaud's or whoever's.)
