BEST STORY


THE HUMAN STRAIN, AS THE WORLD TURNS


More like storytelling, actually, because it's nearly impossible to single out one particular plot when everything in Oakdale this year was so intimately connected.

Just look at the "Editors' Choices" - from Rosanna and Craig's upper-crust nuptials to Metro's sexually charged opening night - which ended up being a hodgepodge of praise, a nod to storylines woven together so tightly, they were ravel-proof. Think about it: The Montgomerys' story bled into the Jack/Carly and Paul/Rose/Dusty/Molly arcs, both of which affected the Katie/Mike romance (that paralleled Alison/Chris), which crossed into the serial killer story before twisting back around again.

And those are just the highlights. Maybe we should pick one that stood out, but the fact that we can't is just the point. Everything - whether you liked it all or not - intersected with consistency and balance, creating a real sense of community. There's your story.
