I THOUGHT THIS WAS A HOAX...you know how much I want the Vampires..look at this:
On Monday, Jan. 14, Lucy will drop by Kelly's Diner for some chow and
spot John McBain, the good-guy cop played by Easton. "She completely
freaks and screams, "Caleb!" says head writer Ron Carlivati. "Later
Kelly's character, Sam, comes out of the ladies room and Lucy think it's
Livvie." Lucy goes into full slayer mode and stabs John. He's rushed to
the hospital. She ends up in the slammer
"Our universes are colliding but this is no quick gimmick," Carlivati
promises. "This will kick off a nice little mystery story: Is Lucy crazy
or is there something very real going on here? And, if she's crazy, why
do John and Sam feel like they've met before?"
The plot gets even dizzier when Duke Lavery, played by Ian Buchanan who also played vampire king Joshua Temple on PC,
pays a visit to Lucy at the jailhouse. "That really throws her for a
loop — in fact, the whole thing's a total mindf--k!" says Carlivati.
"We'll also throw Sam's mother Alexis [Nancy Lee Grahn] into the mix as Lucy's attorney."
far will Carlivati take this thing? "The story does get pretty
over-the-top yet it's still rooted in a certain reality," says the
scribe. "Lucy may be off-kilter but she's certainly not in Heather
Webber territory. Her belief in vampires will be very convincing."
Especially for the PC viewers who saw it all happen!
show was so ahead of its time and this is a nice nod to the fans who
supported all those wild chances we took," Herring says. "I love that
we're still taking chances and not sidestepping the past. If Lucy met up
with John and didn't recognize him, we'd be flooded with complaints!
