If this All My Children promo is accurate–and we know how misleading ABC’s promos can be–it looks as if the writers at AMC have decided to blame David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) for his own murder. Seriously?
Why is it that “Who Done It?” storylines on soaps are becoming more and more lame as writers refuse to pin the murder of a popular character on a remaining resident? Almost everyone in Pine Valley had a reason for killing David and instead of say Erica (Susan Lucci), Tad (Michael E. Knight), Ryan (Cameron Mathison), Madison (Stephanie Gatschet), Amanda (Chrishell Stause) or David's own wife Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) being responsible for his death, they're alluding it was David himself?
I wouldn’t even have had a problem with finding out that Zach (Thorsten Kaye) secretly returned to town to murder David. That would be a better twist than David framing himself. All My Children’s writing may have improved, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t lazy. Watch this week’s AMC promo after the jump.
