Favorite Storyline

Guilty... But Not Really: Harley is unable to remember exactly what happened the night of Phillip's death, and when all evidence seems to point to her -- with a little help from Alan -- she is tried and convicted of Phillip's murder. (GL)

» Kissing Cousins: Despite a harrowing beginning, neither Jonathan nor Tammy can deny the attraction between them and, ignoring the fact they are half-cousins, defy all odds in order to be together. (GL)

Twist In My Sobriety: Billy takes what he thinks is an alcohol-free drink, not knowing Olivia has switched the glasses. On the wagon and in AA for 13 years, Billy gets roaring drunk, and tries, with Reva's help to get sober again. (GL)

Whoa, Baby!: With surrogate Dinah having miscarried, Edmund is at a loss as to where to find a baby in order to keep a connection with Cassie. When pregnant Michelle returns to town, Edmund seizes the opportunity, gives her a labor inducing drug. In a daze, she drives her car off the road. Edmund has followed, delivers her baby, then takes it away, leaving Michelle unconscious at the side of the road, making sure her car is afire. (GL)



Least Favorite Storyline

Kissing Cousins: Sweet Tammy Winslow falls for bad boy Jonathan Randall, despite being engaged to Sandy Foster. The fact they are related draws opposition from family, while his brushes with the law and quick temper do not gain him any support. (GL)

» The Change: Reva's massive mood swings, the result of menopause, has her pushing away her husband, acting erratically, and in trying to regain her youth, flirting with Nate, a dangerous man she does not realize is her son's adoptive father. (GL)

Who Shot Phillip?: Though there were plenty of suspects, Harley's memory loss resulted in her standing trial for Philip's murder, and for the court to allow Alan to orchestrate her conviction. (GL)

The Truth is Revealed: With Harley convicted of Phillip's murder and in prison, Alan gets overly confident. But finally, in an illuminating moment, shows his unstable state of mind, as he admits he was the one who shot Phillip. (GL)

They Do... Finally: After many false starts over time, Gus and Harley finally are wed, in a simple, but beautiful garden ceremony, with only family and close friends in attendance. (GL)

» Wedding Day Blues: At her fairy tale wedding to Sandy, Tammy cannot take her eyes off Jonathan in the front row, but says 'I do' anyway.
