PAUL AND ROSE, AS THE WORLD TURNS
It would probably make the editors of Modern Bride faint, but this was just the kind of nuptial ceremony we can get behind. More than just a wedding, it was a week of episodes (in December 2003, but we're still counting it for this year) that perfectly captured in tone, scope, script, performance and production exactly how wildly engrossing daytime drama can be.
So, they never actually tied the knot - the emotions here were tangled enough already. After a speech (fueled by insecurity, jealousy and one nasty misunderstanding) that can only be described as eviscerating, the groom cruelly spat, "I don't" at the altar. Cue the bride's meltdown into a grotesquely gorgeous puddle of chiffon, only to die (Of heartbreak? Better: poisoning!) hours later.
Just consider the fallout - months of suspicion, guilt, vengeance, rage, fear, penance, incarceration, isolation, therapy, insanity, etc. for half of the characters on ATWT's canvas - our honeymoon.
