It was soooo sad! I wasn’t expecting it at all and then the scene just wouldn’t stop! At first I thought the fight was funny in an absurd kind of way, like, you know, a physical fight on a soap, and then the car chase happened, which, again, wasn’t exactly Bourne caliber, and I thought soap contrivance would save him, not kill him, and then he got so scared when the engine wouldn’t start! That’s when I was like oh on oh no oh no. The longer it went, the more I thought it wouldn’t happen, because it would be too cruel! The door not opening, him being alive after getting shot to listen to Phelan. And then…tsk.
A part of me hoped that since they didn’t show the body he’d still be alive, that’s not even a soap thing, that’s a TV thing, but the cops showing up today, and it being all somber. We can’t exactly expect that he woke up and staggered off and then replaced the body, yeah?
