it’s only my opinion

Follow Carolyn on Twitter @carolynhinsey I’m always yammering on about how soaps should play their histories, but look at how great they are when they do! Is there a bigger loser at love than GH’s Alexis? She picked two mobsters and a crook to father her children (Julian, Sonny, Ric) in between dating wingnuts like Jerry Jacks and finding Neil dead in her bed. But she got it right with former fiancé Ned and GH has been wise to keep them in each other’s orbits. Alexis (re: Neil’s overdose): “Was I being willfully blind like with Julian and Ric and all the other men in my life?

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, 2009 Bill’s surprise romance with Katie led to love.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL (Liam opines to Wyatt that Steffy’s doctor is attracted to his patient.) Wyatt: “And you think Dr. McHandsome is just dragging out the treatment so that he can spend more time with her.” Liam: “Oh, my God. I didn’t even think of that.” Wyatt: “Forget I said that.” (A worried Thomas vents to Hope about how much Steffy has been through.) Thomas: “She’s burying herself in work, and trying to follow Kelly around and acting like her emotional life doesn’t matter, and then top all that off, Bill with his ridiculous spray tan comes along and hits her while she’s on her motorcycle.” DAYS OF OUR LIVES (After cornering Kristen, Eli blasts her for using Lani to hide Kristen from the cops.) Kristen: “I didn’t ask Lani to turn a blind eye to anything. I just…
