When Ethan and Theresa, and Luis and Sheridan prepared to finally get hitched on PASSIONS, we cried. From laughing, that is. As the double nups proceeded, Ethan's mom, Ivy, burst into the church with the (erroneous) bombshell that his bride had leaked his true paternity to a tabloid. Sure, interrupted weddings are de rigueur, but did we mention that Ivy was behind the wheel of a car when she made her entrance? The moment was played to the campy hilt. "Going to the Chapel" was blaring from the radio as Ivy raced to break up the ceremony. "I didn't have time to park," she snapped. Though the couples wound up feeling blue, PASSIONS made an old formula seem like something new.
I loved this story line. As much as I wanted the wedding to continue for Ethan and Theresa, I remember just screaming 'thank you Ivy' because by stopping the wedding, Sheridan didn't die from that poisoned ring! These first few years of Passions were great. Although it helped that I hadn't really ever watched any soaps prior, and even though I was watching Days at the same time I didn't know the common soap themes. So when someone died I thought it was for good and when they came back I freaked out because I was so happy.
