Quote SandraJean: I loved that Josh and Reva ended up together. After all the years they were in love they should grow old together. However, what happened with Jeffrey. He was searching for Edmond, Jonathan knew he was alive, but the whole storyline went dead. What was with that whole thing? Are we to assume he was killed by Edmond or what?
You have put into words what I've been thinking for a long time. We went through so many stories that ended with tragedy/death--Natalie/Gus, Coop/Ashley, Cassie/Josh, Reva/Jeffrey, Mallet/Dinah, Coop/Beth, Grady/Daisy. Some we actually liked and some we really hated. But someone was always crying their eyes out and so many died.
I had favorite couples, but the writers seemed to destroy any chance they had to be together. I really wanted Dinah to be with Shane. She brought out so much good in him and he loved her with all his heart even to the end. Reva and Josh--He was not the man for her now. She was in love with Jeffrey because he didn't change her. He accepted her as she was. Why would he obsess over anything that would take his love from Reva? The writers could've done a better job and left us with something to hold on to. Reva deserved better than to have Jeffrey written out the way he was. I just knew he was coming back and I was so looking forward to seeing her face light up again. With Josh, it was same old, same old. With Jeffery everyday was new..."What the Hell" was so good to describe them. And to leave the story hanging like the writers did, I just can't imagine them doing such a thoughtless thing to us. Horrible, horrible--that's what I think.
And what about Jonathan knowing Jeffrey is alive???? What was that all about??? Were we supposed to just sit and take it-the fact that we knew Jeffrey was alive and Jonathan just kept his mouth shut! There was no closure on that little tidbit. Just lots and lots to ponder....the writers took it all away from us.
I have tried to put the story back in my head, but it's hard to do when Jeffrey is "out there" doing God knows what and the same for Mallet and Dinah. The ending to that story was horrible, too. I have nothing to go on, nothing to dream about because these story lines took us nowhere credible where we could continue the dream.
I have tears in my eyes for the way we were treated by the writers. I agree, it wasn't the outdoors or anything else that led to GW's demise. It was the writing. If I were a writer, I would wear a paper bag over my head, move to another country, change my name, beg forgiveness, and get another line of work. I don't think I've been so disgusted and heartbroken at the same time as I am now. PP, you have made things so clear. Loved your brief encounter with the young writer. Thanks for your posts.
