Goutman Previews End of 'World' For TV Guide
By Jillian Bowe on August 09, 2010
SPOILER ALERT: Hang on to your hats boys and girls! TV Guide's Michael Logan spoke with As The World Turns' Chris Goutman and got him to sing like a canary about what's to come in the final days of the soon-to-be defunct serial.
Barbara (Colleen Zenk) and Henry (Trent Dawson) will finally make it to the altar, reveals Goutman. "They are very flawed people but they know there's no other way to complete themselves other than being with each other. Their wedding will help heal the incredibly dysfunctional Ryan family and expunge the ghost of James Stenbeck (Anthony Hererra) once and for all. Once that ghost is put to rest, Emily (Kelley Menighan Hensely) and Paul (Roger Howarth) will be able to see through all their mishigas and finally realize they are meant for each other. They are going to raise Eliza together and be a family.
I think it's imperative we bring those two together even though they have never been able to get it right, Goutman notes. We've watched them go through so much, often to the point of viewer frustration. But odds be damned and differences be damned, these two belong together.
