One of the four soaps is bringing a character back from the dead – which one is it? My money is on GH and that it will have something to do with Luke’s exit story (Bill Eckert?)… however, Pratt is doing such a terrible job on Y&R lately maybe it would be that show.
Unfortunately, “wildest” wouldn’t describe any of the characters I wish would be risen from the dead: AJ Quartermaine, Alan Quartermaine, John Abbott, Stephanie Forrester – so I think it won’t be any of these characters. Perhaps Connie Falconeri, since it would kind of get Ava off the hook, but I don’t really think so.
Other possibilities: Frank Smith, GH; Jerome Sr, Ava and Julian’s dad, GH; Kelly Andrews, Y&R….
Which show do you think it will be? Which character? And do you have a “wish list’ of characters you would like for it to be, even if it is really unlikely? The lbind item says “wildest ever”….June 23, 2015 at 10:13 am #429446
Lightning strikes the Q crypt and all the dead Q’s come back as brain eating zombies a la Walking Dead. Because at this point, why not?June 23, 2015 at 11:30 am #429447
The blind item specifically mentions Whoopi Goldberg’s famous “he doesn’t have a head!” dialogue from Soapdish so I’m thinking it’ll be someone who was an organ donor. So BJ and Jake on GH. Colleen and whatever baby JFP killed and won all those Emmy’s for on Y&R. Jack from Days might qualify since they’ve killed him and brought him back so many times now. I doubt this is referring to B&B. Sounds more like something Pratt, Higley or Carlivati would be likely to do than Brad Bell.June 23, 2015 at 4:58 pm #429448
Freeman, I was thinking of starting a post on this very subject! My theory is that this post is about Lily, Sonny’s ex on GH who blew up in a car in 1996. One of the reasons I chose her is because the actress who portrays her made a brief appearance on the 50th anniversary episode promo. Also, Rosalie could be her daughter; maybe that is Rosalie’s secret, that Sonny is her father and that Lily is still alive.June 23, 2015 at 7:06 pm #429449
I vote for Maya’s child on B&B!June 23, 2015 at 8:31 pm #429450
This sounds very GH to me… just a hunch, and I think that Robbalto’s theory about Lily very well could be true.June 23, 2015 at 10:42 pm #429451
Which would mean Michael slept with his adoptive sister. Ick.June 24, 2015 at 2:59 am #429452
I thought of that issue, tennisfreak, but they are not blood-related and were not raised as siblings, so I think it would fly.June 24, 2015 at 7:18 am #429453
Still…Michael’s related to enough core families almost all of his romantic prospects make him look like the title character of a Greek tragedy. Heh what if Lily is alive and it turns out Sabrina is her and Sonny’s daughter?June 24, 2015 at 8:12 am #429454
I don’t want it to be Lily – for one thing, wouldn’t that mean more screen time for Sonny? (YUCK!)
It wouldn’t be the wildest ever, but I would love for it to be Jack Devereaux, since a Jennifer/Jack/Eve triangle would be fun! (I never believed Jack was dead; all we had was Abe’s word for it)…
I do think for it to equate to Soapdish it would have to be someone who has donated organs or their head has been blown off, etc. (I have a craving to see Soapdish again!)
Also: Michael isn’t Sonny’s biological child, so it wouldn’t have any “ick” factor for Sabrina – but I sure don’t want Sabrina to be Sonny’s child (super YUCK!)June 24, 2015 at 9:03 am #429455
I had heard the rumor previously about Lily returning from the dead and being Rosalie’s mother, with Sonny as her father, which I wouldn’t care for at all. I have a hard time getting a read on how popular Lily was. I’ve read some claims that she was quite beloved, but don’t have anything anecdotal to support that. My friend who was giving me some background on the character said that Lily dying in that car explosion is literally one of her happiest soap-related memories ever, which tells you how she felt about the character.
I don’t even want to imagine what “wildest ever” means, but bringing back someone whose organs were donated sounds like a good candidate for it. I don’t want to see another Jack Deveraux resurrection, and considering what Eve’s been up to since her return to Salem, I don’t see that it would be much of a triangle with him, Eve and Jennifer. (Frankie is a much more compelling option for that.) There is a decently long list of dead children to choose from, including BJ and Jake on GH, Delia on Y&R and Zack on DAYS, but I can’t see any of those happening.
The deaths that always seem more final, the ones from which there seems to be no turning back, are the ones where the person dies of some illness in a hospital with a body and a funeral and everything, and undoing those always seems the most outlandish to me.June 24, 2015 at 9:45 am #429456
Lily really wasn’t very popular. The fans of Soap Opera Digest voted her and Miguel (Ricky Martin) the most boring couple of 1995. She basically got her father to force Sonny into marrying her not long thereafter thus providing an obstacle between her and Sonny (which the fans hated). The character has been more popular in death largely because we got what we wanted. The actress also had dreadful chemistry with all her male costars. You can probably find clips to back that up on YouTube.June 24, 2015 at 11:59 am #429457
Lily is a character that was more popular with the writers and producers than with the fans. Few fans actually had strong feelings for Lily one way or another, she was more or less just another thing keeping Sonny and Brenda apart. Her death while rather shocking and well produced didn’t leave any of the fans missing her in the least.June 24, 2015 at 8:04 pm #429458
might it have something to do with thaao penghlis’s return to days?
