    Ugh, couldn’t they have come up with something better? If I remember correctly, this was not that great of an episode because there was too much crammed into it. I guess if you are a fan of OLTL it is a reminder that you can still see your favs, but all the Sonny, Carly, Sam & Jason fans are just out of luck. JMO

    • Sonny, Carly, Sam, & Jason have had more than their fair share of the show devoted to them over the course of the past fifteen years…I think the show can survive one episode without them in it! Besides, it’s just a rerun, anyway.

        Isn’t it funny though how all the rerun’s are from the past eight months? It used to be that we would see long ago episodes, no matter who the EP and HW were at the time the show originally aired. Are Frank and Ron worried that they might remind the GH fans of how good the show used to be if they showed a rerun episode from two, ten or fifteen years ago?

  • Thank God, because I only watched that episode for the Todd and Blair love. But the rest ended up being pretty good too. Lots going on in this episode. Good choice.
