Quote largale80: OMG....Why did Laura shoot Rick? & What happen to Luke? I remember Steve & Audrey. What happen to Bobby? I'd say things have changed. Thanks for catching me up on all the details.
Basically right about the time that L&L were about to get married again (GF did not renew her contract) Laura started having bad dreams about the attic at her parents' (Rick and Leslie) house (which is now the Scorpio home). Eventually with Luke's help and despite Scott Baldwin's objections Laura remember that as a teenager she had seen a light in the attic and gone to investigate. She found step-dad Ric having sex with some red-head (don't remember her name). I think Laura confronted him and Rick tried to end the affair at the next meeting in the attic. The woman threaten to tell Leslie (and everybody else). Rick ended up shooting and killing her not knowing Laura was watching. Scott (who had come looking for Laura) helped bury the body. Laura was in shock and they managed to get her to supress the memory - until Rick returned for the wedding. When she started putting it all togetger she went to the attic. Rick, realizing that Laura would tell when she did remember followed her and tried to inject her with something. Laura defending herself, struggled with him and rick ended up dead, but Laura had a break down and ended up catonic. Luke has not forgiven himself for not getting to the attic in time to save her from Rick's attack!
Laura was sent to Fernglen at first, but then Nik moved her to a clinic in europe. Evenutally Luke brought her back to PC. And she has been there since. And will apparently remain there until about Nov. 15th or so!!!!
Hope that helps, sorry it was so long! :))
