GEORGIE AND BARBARA, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
Too many kooks spoil the soup. Which begs the question: Why did OLTL bring on two loco ladies with Fatal Attraction things going? Consider: Georgie, a law student with a promising career ahead of her, became obsessed with Bo. Barbara, a successful nurse, slept with Kevin - who was engaged to Cassie - and became infatuated. Georgie reached out with a telephone and bloodied roomie Rachel, then threatened to kill her - but Rachel permanently disconnected Georgie instead. Barbara went insane after Kevin ditched her and tried to murder him. Instead, the bullet killed Drew and paralyzed Cassie.
The biggest gripe with all this, um, craziness? These chicks were practically carbon copies. There was one difference: Georgie was evil from start to finish, while Babs did an about-face and repented, thanks to the love of Joey. These days, Cassie, who knows what Barbara did, is tormenting the RN. Consequence: We are supposed to feel sorry for Barbara, not Cassie. Now that's crazy.
