Ron C on DAYS rushes past all the suspense to get to the climaxes and twists, and the GH writers play all the beats and then can’t stick the landing, so all their suspense and building falls flat. I wish anyone in these shows could still get it right- the build when done properly and then an actual climax drives up ratings you fools! It has on every soap I ever watched!
Yes, I know that I started watching regularly (instead of it just being on in the background as a kid) in 79 and he was never mentioned. I know that the actor came to the 25th anniversary party so he was up and about and apparently no hard feeling so I wonder if he just wanted to retire? Odd that they just never mentioned him dying off camera. Alma was mentioned when Gregg Marx was Tom as an excuse for Fulton to take her 3 month hiatus at that time, he said she went to take care of her mother, "Grandma" in Florida who was sick. Then Alma was never mentioned again.
