Welcome back, bitch!

 

So I guess this whole Katie going crazy thing was to throw us off the Sheila scent/introduce the story.

 

We should have known she's back when Lt. Baker got involved!

Exactly. 

 

It's sad that we can predict these plots before they even occur. That ought to let Brad Bell know that it is time for him to step down as head writer. 

I'm thinking Brad Bell pulled off one of the biggest surprises in recent daytime history today. I don't think anyone saw it coming, certainly no one on this board. It's nice to know it's still possible to create a Friday cliffhanger, something the soaps used to be so good at. Kudos B&B

You must be Bradley Bell himself. Only he would pat himself on the back a la Frank Valentini.

No. I'm not Bradley Bell. I'm just saying how nobody really saw this coming, and that the show did everything possible to keep the reveal a surprise. As posters often comment, the soaps don't surprise anymore. When one does successfully, I see nothing wrong in giving credit where credit is due.

It had to be Sheila because Katie legit didn't know what Quinn was talking about.

So we have two nuts fighting for Eric's love?

It certainly was a big surprise and I'll give credit for two things: 1) no characters even mentioned Sheila - not even in passing and 2) the set security. Only one site spoiled it early this morning and I only noticed that when I did a search after the news broke. 

 

Also, credit B&B's quick production model, remember the show was foolishly pre-empted for a nothing news conference only 4 weeks ago today. Most shows take 6-8 weeks to get back to Friday cliffhangers, sync holiday episodes etc. That's pretty darned amazing. I seriously doubt it was going to be set for a Thursday reveal.

Yes.  There was an article about the the Katie/Quinn story in this week's TV Guide magazine that hinted that something huge was going to happen with this story today that would interest veteran fans.  I really thought it was going to be Monday because of that pre-emption, so I was a little surprised that in did in fact air today and we got a good old-fashioned Friday cliff-hanger.  And that promo at the end of the episode was giving me all kinds of feelings and excited for the summer.  Brad better not disappoint.
