    What's next for Zarf?

    Pine Valley's new resident, Zarf, is making headlines and generating talk. In a recent New York Times article, it was reported that while some viewers find Zarf fascinating, others consider him "creepy" or "repulsive."

    "I'm sort of hoping we open the door to soaps in general to get back to more of the adventurous days of storytelling," said Brian Frons, president of daytime for the Disney-ABC Television Group. "Sometimes I think the genre falls back a little bit too much on baby switching and paternity stories. We're doing this as a show of courage as much as entertainment, hoping it encourages people across the genre to be bolder."

    Expect more developments in the coming weeks in the growing relationship between lesbian Bianca and Zarf, as Bianca is puzzled by her attraction to a man.
