GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN|
ANOTHER WORLD ON AS THE WORLD TURNS
When soaps are canceled, the characters disappear into oblivion. Fortunately, ANOTHER WORLD still spins in Oakdale. What began as a gimmick, crossing over Cass, Lila, Jake and Vicky (and later, Marley and Cindy), has evolved into a universal story about love and loss. Since Vicky's death, we've seen Jake mourn, then take baby steps toward a romance with Molly. Thanks to superb writing, careful pacing and the undeniable chemistry of Tom Eplin and Lesli Kay, fans have embraced their relationship. Then, when Jake was ready to move on, the writers threw a curve ball: Ghost Vicky. To make sense of this otherworldly situation, Jake and Cass shared a profound discussion about lost loves that resonated for fans of both shows. Donna's heart-to-hearts with Molly, Marley's meetings with Jake and Cindy's surprise visit demonstrated how characters can blend seamlessly into the fabric of another soap's canvas. There truly is ANOTHER WORLD, and right now, it's in Oakdale.
