Claudia and Enrique also came in at the time there were strong rumors B&B was going to expand to an hour. When that didn't happen, they likely got the chop.

Sounds about right. I remember B&B having a cast purge in spring 1997.

On As The World Turns, I believe Camille was searching for her father. She became close to John Dixon, and I thought either he was her father or a red herring, but Camille left town without an answer.

And I don't think they ever attempted a story out of it, but I don't think they ever mentioned who was Cassie's father on Guiding Light.

Since the Sean D. tribute is on GH this week, that reminds me. Was it ever the plan for Felicia to be Sean's daughter? It seemed they might of been going in that direction early on when he was after the Aztec treasure that was a part of Felicia's family legacy, but then ended up not going there after all.

It would've been fantastic; the storyline kind of just dipped out all of a sudden, which is so unfortunate.

I thought the story was overall looked down on? Was it that popular? I remember reading about it and was intrigued.

In watching scenes from the storyline, I am so intrigued by it, because it was dark and just seemed incredibly different for The Bold and the Beautiful.

On Dallas they implied that Wes Parmalee was really Jock Ewing then they dropped it as a hoax. Also after Pam's car crash, Katherine shows up in Pam's room, Pam disappears and Katherine is never seen or referred to again.

 

Y&R.....Wasn't there some sort of storyline with Jonas and Lucas saving orphans in South America that was dropped ? There was also the unexplained conclusion of Liz Foster's marriage to Stuart Brooks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


many, including myself, believe WP was Jock. I think it was dropped because fans hit the roof.

I think we need to differentiate between dropped and unresolved storylines.

 

Deveney on B&B was really neither.  It was an unusual story because it was so time limited and it had a distinct beginning, middle and end.  Stephanie began making mysterious phone calls, it is established that she was conned into believing that Angela Forrester was alive, there's an accident, and the doctor and Deveney were apparently dead.  Then, Deveney returned, vowed revenge on the Forrester brothers using the knowledge of the real unresolved story; Thorne's shooting of Ridge.  However, before she can reveal her plan at the Queen Mary fashion show, Thorne befriends Deveney, offers to pay for her plastic surgery, and she leaves to go get reconstructed.  Thus, it wasn't really dropped, and there was no need to revisit it, it just ended.

 

As far as unresolved stories, I would say that Passions was the guiltiest of the genre.  Why did Chad's adoptive parents disappear?  Why did Antonio abandon his siblings?  Whatever happened to the guy who Ivy paid to say was Grace's first husband (and his son)? These were all plots with no resolution but they were not dropped in the same way that Mitch's brother on OLTL suddenly disappeared without a mention.
