Pine Valley will never be the same

From SoapCentral. The beginning of this article discusses other things and people before discussing the upcoming murder mystery. Of the "candidates" who would you miss least? I am not sure who I would pick. http://www.soapcentral.com/amc/scoop.php?section=twoscoops&date=090511 Yes, this is the week... the week that someone meets their maker. Technically, the person will not die until Monday, May 18, but there's plenty of great setup until then. Fans have been creative in their attempts to get me to spill the beans about the victim of the impending murder. One even went as far as to offer to ply me with homemade cookies. It's hard to keep a secret of this magnitude, but if you want me to be honest, I really wish that I didn't know what was going to happen. In this age of instant news gratification, there are seldom surprises any more. Anyone who really wants to know what happens can find out, I guess. Be warned, though, because a lot of the so-called spoilers I've read elsewhere are w-r-o-n-g. ABC calls the victim "legendary" and assures fans that one of these people takes their last breath: Adam Chandler, Erica Kane, Kendall Hart, Ryan Lavery, Tad Martin, and Zach Slater. I am not really sure that Kendall, Ryan or Zach quality as "legendary," so let's remove them from the list. It's not intended as disrespect to fans of those characters or the actors that play the roles. I just don't believe that you can compare the longevity of the other three characters to these relative newcomers. Pratt has said that the victim will be someone that fans love and hate. Tad doesn't seem to fall into that category. Erica and Adam definitely do. Much has been made of Susan Lucci's recent pay cut and David Canary has gone a long time without a huge story. We hadn't seen Stuart for months prior to Scott's return. Can All My Children really survive if either Erica or Adam does not? In her visions, Opal has seen both Tad and Adam with serious injuries. This week, she adds Ryan to that list. All of Opal's visions seem to come true... so that doesn't bode well for the three men. On the other hand, Erica, Zach, and Kendall could breathe a sigh of relief.

They showed a trailer that had Tad with a bandage on his head which might fit with Opal's vision of him and yet indicate that he survives which fits your analysis. It really is hard to imagine AMC without Erica or Adam but other shows have done such things sho who knows, AMC might also.

I won't have tv after tomorrow and no internet until saturday so I will miss it all...but I heard about it and agree with what you have said above - gotta be Erica or Adam.... and I'd bet its Adam as he hasn't had much going on lately. And Erica... killing her off would be like kiling the show - she is the last of the originals. She has to many storylines and involved is so many storylines. I don't care for her at all, but the show wouldn't be the same without her. Now David... the show would only improve if they's get rid of that rat.

That sounds exciting. I just hope it is not Erica or Adam Chandlier. They have been from the beginning. If one of them goes, I am afraid All My Children will not survive. I have already seen one of my favorite soap operas disappear and although I do not watch the show as often, I still tune in to see what is up.
