Words Don't Do It Justice: Only Gibberish Can Describe My Excitement

!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!

I try, for the most part, to refrain from reading spoilers. Partly because I am still naively hoping to be surprised by plot twists which...you wonder how I don't fall down more. And I also try to avoid spoilers so that I don't judge stories unfarily, sight unseen. It makes way more sense to wait for the story to start and THEN judge. Patience is a virtue and all that.

But, in a beautiful instance of serendipity, I accidentally read a spoiler that was so glorious, and so insanely perfect that it completely salvaged a day that was marred by torrential downpours and accidentally searing my hand with my flatiron.

If you want to remain unspoiled, do not keep reading. But if you want a hint of the most amazing thing to happen to Pine Valley in years (Petey Cortlandt notwithstanding), join me in walking on air after the jump!

Ohmigod, you guys. It's happened. It has finally happened. After five years of bitching and moaning and being convinced that the powers-that-be at All My Children were writing this character specifically to drive the audience insane, it has happened.

Amanda Baker has gotten pink slipped and Babe is being killed off.

Babe, the loathsome, babynapping, smugger than smug, lying, bitchy and not even in the entertaining way, overexposed, hypocritical Babe is gone. Gone! Dead! As in "Ding, Dong, The Witch Is Gone". As in "No, FOR REAL, they aren't faking it this time". As in "We'll be able to watch an entire AMC episode without being assaulted by the smugness that permeates the character no matter who is playing her".

I feel like Julia Roberts presenting Denzel Washington with the Oscar, because I really do love my life.

I could rain on my own parade of happiness by pointing out that we're probably in for a good six months of mourning over Babe and express regret that Babe wasn't killed off earlier, especially when Alexa Havins was still playing her, but for right now, I'd just...like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony.

I will be liveblogging the hell out of this when the wonderful day comes, by the way.
