Several days ago, I posted an entry about the fallout from the death of Dr. Reid Oliver (Eric Sheffer Stevens) on As The World Turns. There were three central ideas in that piece. First, despite the very legitimate complaints that any given fan might have, ATWT is providing great human drama here at the end of its run. Second, Reid’s tragic passing and donation of his heart to Chris (Daniel Cosgrove) encapsulated that goal mainly by thrusting the Hughes’— the show’s core family since its very debut— front and center toward its conclusion. Third, given the soap opera wrapped production months ago, the idea of kicking a dead horse with unrelenting criticism isn’t going to make it win the Kentucky Derby.
I have not budged one iota from any of those positions and I am about to incur the wrath of a whole lot more of you by making what I know will be a very controversial statement to many: I believe that in these final days, executive producer Christopher Goutman has made mostly the right decisions.
Carly (Maura West) watches Jack (Michael Park) and Janet (Julie Pinson) get closer. Lily (Noelle Beck) questions Holden (Jon Hensley) about what could have happened to Damian (Paolo Seganti). Paul (Roger Howarth) threatens Barbara (Colleen Zenk Pinter) at gunpoint and Mick (Tom Pelphrey) attacks a cop for Alison (Marnie Schulenburg).
