A Tragic End
It spawned a million Google searches. It almost single-handedly buoyed our spirits during dark times (i.e., approximately 37 minutes of GH airtime a day). Sure, it had started to change a bit, lose a bit of its sparkle and look a bit long in the tooth, but we nonetheless held out hope. It would survive.
But we were wrong. Why are we not accustomed by now to General Hospital stomping all over our soap-viewing hearts? That's right: According to today's preview of tomorrow's episode, the Kate Howard Bob is dead.
We tried to make it know how many people loved it. We shared our love of it with friends, family, strangers, and hairdressers. We wrote about it as if it were a James Scott/Jason Thompson human hybrid. We had high hopes that it might cure cancer. Yet it met a tragic fate, long before its time. It still had so much to give. It was timeless, professional, and inspiring. RIP, Kate Howard/Megan Ward Bob. RIP.
