Heather was definitely a grown adult over 20 before having Steven Lars, & was quite a few years older before Scotty even came in to the picture, which was after Jason was born. I learned this mostly through Wikipedia:)
The writers really need to honor GH history. This is just taking too many liberties.
By the way, does anyone else find it amusing that the hospital for the crazy people is called Miscavige? I laugh every time it's mentioned.
Really, it's a SOAP OPERA. They never adhere to reality, so why start now? Technically, Robin is at least 4 years older than Jason. Morgan should only be 10, Michael should only be 16, Molly should be 8 and Kristina should be 11. On soaps, NONE of the actual math matters. Soap writers don't find young kids all that exciting to write, hence all the SORAS'ed kids on soaps. They're 5 one minute and 18 the next. They've done that for 40+ years. They're not going to stop now.
If you let go of reality, you enjoy the show for what it is.
I don't care if some viewers don't like Carly. I love her and I love her with Franco or Todd or whoever Roger Howath is playing at the moment. He's my favorite leading man for Carly. He's the only one who takes her for who she is and doesn't expect her to change or be something she isn't. Plus, they have great chemistry.
I never liked John McBain, but Silas Clay is growing on me. This might have a little to do with his haircut. Now it looks like he washes it too.
Kiki jumping into the water to save Michael = :rofl
Thank you Critical!! Soaps have always played fast and loose with age, this is nothing remotely new. And honestly, I'm OK with Franco being the child of Heather and Scotty - at least Heather's obsession with him finally makes sense now. There's potential for interesting story there, and it gives Franco some living parents. I really don't care what they do with RH's character because no matter what they throw at him, he makes it work! And I completely agree, RH is the best match for Laura Wright's Carly bar none. Their chemistry is off the charts!!
Carly has always been a fave of mine. I know she isnt popular but lol I love her to bits!
Soap Operas = Revisionist History. Period. Too bad, cause it spoils things for those of us with a MEMORY!!!
I love Carly too. I am fine with the writers recalculating age(why can't that happen to me). What I don't like is when it changes an entire storyline. I am so lost on who is/isn't/can be a Quatermin.e If it ends up that Ava is a long lost Quartermine I am OUT.
I'd just love to know how Franco was a match for Danny!? Random match? This is just too recent to play fast and loose with. Could Heather somehow be a Quartermaine?
As an aside, I read an interview with FV about the whole Franco parentage. It was a recent decision. Part of it was that initially they were like, great, Franco has all these ties to the Q's - but then they realized that most of the Q's are actually dead. Having Franco be the child of Scotty and Heather gives him a chance to have some immediate family ties with people currently on air as well as giving those people more story to play. I'm actually looking forward to Franco having to come to terms with being psycho Heather's son....mostly because I know RH is going to knock it out of the park!!
