You know I haven't really felt the long-term vision for the show since Tomlin came, except for the Baby switch. Everything else just feels like it did when Corday/NBC messed with Sheffer's work and the Higley/Scott shit last summer. Storylines are dropped, random stuff is happening, no pay-offs, etc, etc.

Corday explains to SOD that "Bo and Hope's story is in three phases, and this is the kickoff of the first phase." Corday continues that "the important factor here is what this does to their relationship and how it changes."
That makes me hopeful that they have the story planned already and don't just come up with some random shit a long the way like it's been for the past years.
That has been the case since Tomlin came on. It's just sad that it did not happen sooner but, then again, Tomlin seems to be the only one since Langan who can keep Corday out of things. It's so simple. You get rid of Corday and add to the fact that Tomlin and the writing team share their vision, and the show has more direction and long-term planning then it has in years. That is the problem with soaps today. Too many hands in the cookie jar. There needs to be one vision and these shows have to find a way to make that happen.
