    Of course, I was sobbing again today! Chris is an a** and I won't even comment on him.

    What I'm MOST pissed off about is they used a brown cardboard box for Reid's ashes??? The props people couldn't come up with a wooden box at least??? And is there going to be an "official" memorial service for Reid?!? If so...don't blink your eyes cause you'll probably miss it..or worse yet, there won't be any at all!!!

    And I don't know about any one else but I feel as if I should be wearing a seatbelt watching these last three days!!! Talk about everything being in hyper-drive!!! Lily and Holden go to Chicago, track down Uncle Angus, have a talk with him, he signs the papers, they get back to Oakdale, Reid has already been cremated and they arrive at the pond with the ashes (in the crude cardboard box, no less!) all in the same day?!?!?!?!? And it's still daylight, not even close to dusk at least!!! I feel like I've got whiplash from all the jumping around from one scene to the next then back to the first scene and on and on and on......... Reid hasn't even been dead 24 hours, Chris looks healthier than Luke and is talking up a storm, he's not in any pain whatsoever after having his chest cracked open, no one has changed clothes, John hasn't had any sleep since Lord knows when but is making his rounds around Oakdale!!!

    Yep, these last three days have all been in hyper-drive!!! Sorry for the rant but I'm just so angry with how everything is being rushed through!! Once again, the fans are being cheated...big time!!!

    So...then Luke wakes up and Reid is in the shower...

    I totally agree, Barb G, you could get whiplash at the speed of this episode. Since last November, ATWT began moving the storylines quicker. Today's episode moved at warp speed, it's ridiculous. (I understand the need to wrap it up since, time's running out. Plus this was a short week). I'm glad they imparted a little background on Reid, but it wasn't enough. I still wish they hadn't sacrificed Reid to save Chris. I've accepted a lot of bad storylines on different soaps. I watched until I couldn't anymore. (Y&R and B&B).I don't have that problem with ATWT; it's been cancelled. Many fans, like me were terminated from this soap. I'm watching to the bitter end. I don't like how some of the storylines are being wrapped up. Still, ATWT is head and shoulders above all the other soaps. (If some of them don't improve, they will be cancelled too). I'm looking forward to watching the remaing episodes next week. I will be taping them.

    I agree with you Barb G. and i already have problems with my neck and this week of ATWT isn't helping it....I can't figure out why John would order a paternity test for Janet, what would he have to gain, he doesn't even know her..so confusing....

    North/Cards just read your comments from yesterday - I was in early yesterday when there were just 4 comments - came back today and saw there were 50 so I had to go back to read them! Awesome! Totally enjoyed them. Cards, Lily's birth mom was Iva. And I am impressed with the thoughts back to GL about Bradley Rains - I knew he was Beth's bad guy dad but didn't remember his name. Then again, GL left the airwaves here in Sacramento about 20 years ago :*(

    Now, to continue with the story... The hospital erects a state of the art neuro unit and names it the Reid Oliver Center for Neuro Research. The story gets national coverage and Andy Dixon comes to take photos for the national magazine that he is working for. The entire town of Oakdale comes for the ribbon cutting. There is a huge Hughes Family reunion and all of the Hughes family comes to town, Penny and hubby, Sabrina and Frannie, everyone and they thank the Lord that Reid had a heart to give to Chris but are saddened on the loss of his talents. Luke, while searching for more history on the love of his life finds out that Reid had a twin brother 'Rod', an identical twin to Reid, who was placed with another family member when their parents died. Luke is shocked at the resemblence and finds himself falling for the equally handsome and sarcastic brother...

    Someone else's turn... (oh, and if I remember right, John Dixon was Dusty's guardian, way back when, so they have a relationship)

    Hi fans,

    It's been a sad week. It is just a pity that the writers had to kill off Reid. He and Luke had such a chemistery. What i would like to know is these haracters who act the gay scenes are they really gay in life or just acting the part?

    As much as I hate to correct people who know it all or think they do----Lily & Holden went to Brooklyn not to Chicago. I guess the whiplash must have got to them.
    Sure am glad that this one particular s/l is over with!!! Now maybe we will have worth while s/l to watch without having to fast forward.

    sweet caoline: You can relax now. The LuRe story is over and you can go back to whiny Janet.

    Dongirl: I think I read that ESS has a wife and children, but as for Luke and Noah in real life, I have never heard one way or the other. I've always wondered if TPTB didn't want us to know about that.
