I don't normally seek out spoilers because...well, for one, most of what happens on soaps these days and on All My Children in particular is so enormously predictable that the only people who can't accurately predict what's coming up next are people who haven't watched soaps in five years. And even those people have a pretty good understanding of upcoming plots; they just don't know the names of new characters. So I often don't feel the need to be spoiled, because it's not as though, like, "Ryan declares his love for Greenlee" is a surprising plot development.
The other reason I try not to spoil myself: I have a tendency to assume the worst. So I might read a vaguely worded spoiler, be horrified by it and spend days fixating on how bad it will be. And then by the time the episode actually airs, it winds up being even more awful than I originally anticipated.
But sometimes spoilers just can't be avoided and this week, there is a big one. We'll discuss after the jump, so if you want to be surprised, don't click!
