Log in to Reply AlistairCrane December 19, 2008 Did they ever say if they got Robin Christopher or Linda Dano to return? Log in to Reply THEBEST December 19, 2008 Allistair, this is ABC. Of course, Linda & Robin aren’t coming back. Myrtle’s surrogate daughter, Kitty, will be though… Even though I knew it was coming, when Erica said, “Myrtle’s gone.”, it officially hit me. Pratt better not mess this up! ***///My life as a soap fan is on life support, waiting for a miracle…\\\*** Log in to Reply alex197923 December 19, 2008 RC & Linda belong on the show. Log in to Reply uofmichgrad99 December 19, 2008 Let’s just enjoy today’s show, is that asking for too much? In today’s age of ranting about everything that is wrong with soaps, Eileen Herlie was one of our treasures and was such a treat. Everyone may have their own memory of what Myrtle represented. Being a surrogate mom to mostly everyone on the show, especially the Kane women, sticks out in my memory. I’m glad that AMC touched upon that. It’s nearly impossible to give the proper respect to Eileen in a day, week or hell even a month. But AMC has made a valiant effort. Today’s show was beautiful, touching and so Myrtle in every way and I applaud them.

Log in to Reply At50 December 19, 2008 I agree uofmichgrad99. I thought today’s show was quite good. I liked the liberal use of flashbacks and the poem at the end. I thought the show captured what Myrtle was about and what she brought to AMC. I was really touched by it. Log in to Reply luverica December 19, 2008 I totally agree uofmichgrad99. I truly think this is one of those moments where we should put the nitpicking to the side and just enjoy what was a very moving and well done episode in memory of a great actress and character. Francesca James looks GOOD! Kelly Cole was one of my favorite characters and I’ve always thought Francesca was one of the most beautiful women, and one of its most talented directors, to grace daytime. I’m glad they showed scenes from what I considered to be one of the best Erica Kane storylines and that was her pill addiction. It was that storyline that really cemented the mother/daughter bond of her and Myrtle. Myrtle’s loving reaction to Bianca’s coming out was one of my all time favorite Myrtle scenes because it was soooo her. I remember that scene with Myrtle and Greenlee like it was yesterday because it gave me such a big laugh. “I’ll do whatever I DAMN well please.” You go Myrtle. The brief appearance of Agnes Nixon really touched me. All in all, a great show. God bless you Eileen Herlie. You will be missed.

What a wonderful show, what a wonderful dedication to a woman who will be missed by everyone including her fans, well done to the writters of AMC. Agnes Nixon, what a great job. Log in to Reply SusieQ December 20, 2008 It was a beautiful tribute. I cried from the moment the show opened with Zach til Myrtle’s line at the end. When Erica called her the heart of Pine Valley she was right and her loss will be felt for a very long time. Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville December 20, 2008 I DVR’d it…I can’t wait to see it! I was an AMC watcher in the early to mid 80s and I remember her well. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
