Hi! Long time DOOL fan here, as in watching since Bo and Hope first got married......here's my 2 cents:
Patrick, Mimi, Bonnie, Lexie and Tek are all on the way out.END SPOILERS!!
As to the Kate hate, right here with ya!! I can't believe she would condone Philip leaving the country with Claire after what Curtis did to her re: Billie and Austin.
About the kid aging thing, they actually have a name for that: SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome). I always thought it was pretty funny that Phillip and Will were born around the same time, yet Phillip is grown and Will is still a teen.
I want Vivian back!! She was too funny, especially when she buried Carly alive (ahh the good old Days!)
I am LOVING the fact the JER(k) is gone from the show. I hate hate hate that guy!
NuShawn: way too simian for my tastes. He's doing better though on the acting, and he seems to work well with Martha Madison (Belle). I miss the original Belle though, she would look strange as a mom considering how young she looks. At least they got rid of the interim Belle as she was AWFUL.
I have always loved evil Victor.....
Also, I am soooo glad Steve and Kayla are back! I have been waiting for 16 years for this, ever since Steve's funeral where they switched the coffins after everyone left, and never brought it up again. None of my friends believed he would be back, and it was great to call and gloat when he finally did.
OK that was a really long winded post.......
