This week's promo for As the World Turns.
I so hope Carly nail Jack with her custody battle!
I am fed up with righteous Jack! He needs to be brought down a couple of peg!
Carly does a lot of nailing but it sure isn't going to be w/ a custody battle. I'm sorry but who's the one that took off w/ her boy toy to avoid jail time and left her children feeling hurt, angry and bitter? Regardless, about what anyone says about Jack Carly ain't Mother Of The Year!
"Regardless, about what anyone says about Jack Carly ain't Mother Of The Year!"
Since the new writing regime is on, Carly became a bad mother. She was a good one before.
I hate the way ALL the woman are treated on ATWT! It is hard to forgive Passante for this one!
While I can't excuse everything that Carly has done in her life, I hate that her "leaving" in 2007 is the main thing that people bring up now. Nobody seems to remember that it was JACK's idea for Carly to go on the run with Simon to avoid prosecution. She didn't want to go initially but he talked her into it. Even on the plane, she regretted it but it was too late.
I guess when Maura came back from maternity leave, the new writers needed a sacrificial lamb and Carly's character ended up being it. The only times that Carly had ever left her children (well, Parker really since JJ and Sage weren't around before 2004) was when she was forced to (ie. Winston Lowe; The Spa saga).
Can I also just add that I really don't like what they are doing with these characters. I am a huge CarJack fan but right now, I don't even care about the Janet/Jack/Carly thing. I HATE where this story line is going. Child abuse, even in a soap world, shouldn't be treated like this. There could be a million different ways for Sage to try and break up Jack/Janet if the writer wanted but this is just wrong. Child abuse is a very VERY serious crime and to use it as a the plot device to force this "love" triangle and non-necessary custody battle makes me really upset.
I agree that Carly would never have left her children the way she did. There could have been another way to write out Maura so she could go on maternity leave. But Carly still made the dumb decision to get in business w/ Simon knowing that he's not the most reliable business partner. I get she was desperate to make a name for herself but she's too old to still be doing the same old shenanigans!
I'm a CarJack fan but when people bash Jack and continually talk about how he treats Carly when Carly has done her fair share of dirt to Jack upsets me. So sometimes I get a little defensive. LOL!
While, I'm not necessarily excited to see a custody battle play out there are many cases of children who have lied about being abused even sexually abused. I see this s/l as a way for Carly and Jack to see what their daughter has become and how to deal w/ her and what she's been having to go through because of them.
