Alice Barrett was utterly brilliant, but I've vowed that I will *never* watch these scenes again. When they first aired I was literally shaking with pain and anger, and it made me sick to my stomach. This was the most extreme example of the total ineptitude of both a head writer and an executive producer, Margaret DePriest and Jill Farren Phelps, respectively. A huge write-in and call-in campaign was mounted to save Frankie. The soap mags wrote about it at length as viewers begged the show to spare this beloved character. When word got out about Frankie's impending demise and the audience uproar, the shit hit the fan. Phelps asked DePriest to write it so Frankie's body was not found, leaving the door open for a future return. But DePriest the hack and her gutless EP allowed it to move forward as written.

As far as I'm concerned, this was the beginning of the end of Another World (along with Ryan's death). What a waste. :redface:
