I am having an ethical dilemma.
If I write my honest thoughts about All My Children, and the aftermath of Stuart's murder in particular, and how I am actually sort of looking forward to the show these days (which is in stark contrast to previous weeks in which I needed to outfit myself a contraption a la A Clockwork Orange to make it through an episode) because it is engaging and most of the cast is doing some of their best work in ages, does that mean that I am saying that it was a good move to kill off Stuart? Because I do not feel that it was a good move to kill off Stuart! I am, in fact, still aghast about the entire thing and I don't want to implicitly cheer the writers on for their decision, but I have been thoroughly enjoying the Chandler-centric scenes of late. I AM SO CONFLICTED!
I am not, however, conflicted about the awesome of one Mr. David Canary.
[Talking to Stuart's coffin] Nothing is going to be the same, Stuart. I remember when Lottie died, and my whole world came crashing down around me, but you were there for me, and I knew I could count on you any time...but this, this hurts so much. I have never felt this alone in my life. I...I remember, you used to say, 'Adam, Adam, when you're good, you're very good, but when you're bad..."...when I was bad, you always let me know it. I always wanted to be there for you Stuart and I was until I failed, and I failed you over and over, many times. No matter, I've always loved you, Stuart, and God knows (cries) I'm going to miss you.
I feel like there needs to be a new word invented in his honor, some amalgamation of awesome, amazing, fantastic and glorious, because while all of those words describe his performance as of late, they don't quite do it justice. Like, if I were to say, "Wow, David Canary was amazing during Stuart's funeral", you wouldn't be that impressed because he is always awesome. But if I said, "Wow, David Canary was [some new word, accompanied by jazz hands] during Stuart's funeral", you'd know that he was even more brilliant than usual.
