Not Gonna Lie: I Totally Cried
I know it is an insanely overused plot device, that I should write a 14,000 word rant against any soap ever doing another baby-switch or baby-death storyline EVER again (And I still might! Get me a couple of vodka lemonades and another few horrible episodes of GH and I will be off and running.), that the pacing of this story especially Rafe's pseudo-adoption of Grace was bizarre, that the close-up on the actress baby after Grace passed away was icky,
that it appears from ABC promos that Days is totally ripping this story off from OLTL (which -- purely by coincidence! -- Days' head writer used to be the head writer for), and that the fallout from Grace's death is not going to be nearly as soapy and interesting as it should be....but dear readers, I do not have a void where my heart should be. I teared up when baby Grace died today! Especially when Sami and Rafe lost it.
Tears weren't streaming down my face or anything, and I think that some of my over-emotionalism was probably due to residual distress over my neighborhood convenience store's fountain soda machine being out of Coke Zero syrup this afternoon (will nobody think of the under-caffeinated children?!), but nonetheless, I welled up. Am I alone? Because for real, I liked this episode so much that I didn't even hate Daniel. What is wrong with me?
Elvis, much like your daughter, I must inquire,
Are you serious?
Also, on a side note: These kids are going to end up in med school with Max.
