Mallory really wanted to post about Jonathan Jackson's return as Lucky Spencer after today's airing of his first episode back, but she and her therapist were wary of her venturing back into multiple-personality land (it's never as fun as they make it seem on soaps!). So you are stuck with me, and -- Debbie Downer alert! -- while I enjoyed Jackson's Lucky very much back in the day, I was far too old to have a crush on him and therefore my assessment of his return is likely to have far less "eeeee!"ing than Mal's. I'm sure she will balance the scales at a future date. I have it on good authority that screencaps with animated exploding hearts are well underway.
So, first day back. "Remember me?" was a terribly cheesy opener, but Jackson had the decency to look chagrined by that, so kudos.
And then we cut to the credits, which readers have emailed to point out still include Greg Vaughan. How grossly cheap is this show?! It is bad enough that the credits have at least four dead characters in them, but really, you somewhat brutally fire a longtime cast member and then leave him in the credits even after his replacement has started? This show is to class what Lindsay Lohan is to sobriety. (Related note: You look fab for 56, Lindz! Don't let anyone tell you differently!)
Side note: The Beard must be eliminated. A strategic razor could get in and out without causing any collateral damage. I say we let it try. For the good of the country. Or at least for the couple hundred of us still watching General Hospital.
