The Bobbie/Lucy Fiasco
Ok, I'm starting off to say that I am HAPPY AS HELL these ladies are gracing our screens again. SO, let's get that outta the way.
I am however, going to take umbrage with the 'story lines' they've been 'featured' in over the past year. (I learned the word "umbrage" from Spencer, btw)
Ok, so Bobbie came back, lived with Carly (along with Lucas) and...and... I remember when she was around for a day or 2 when Lucas got shot, then. Nothing.
Lucy? Had some fun stuff at the Nurses Ball and of course, went from Doc to Scott..to Doc to Scott over a year's time, with many gaps in between. SO many gaps, that I really don't care about that side of the 'story'. And I'm someone that watched these 2 in their hey-day.
Lucy shows up crying about Rafe, but couldn't be there because the 'canvas was too full'...so instead we watch TJ for days holding Molly's hand. Welp. There was also a note on twitter from the head writer that said these actors are not on contract and ergo, can't be on that much.
Let's go with that. SO...they aren't on contract. So, why don't you open up Lucy's Spa (where did that go? Did it leave with Laura?) and have her on now and again in the Spa, interacting with a bunch of people doing Lucy type stuff. Bobbie could be at Carly's now and again, interacting with Josslyn and Franco. Scotty has a great 'in' with his DA job and MAYBE getting to know Franco a bit. Why put them in the same tired triangle hi-jinks? Did Bobbie and Lucy really need to have another cat fight?
Look, Kevin and Lucy have a kid and Scott and Lucy have a kid. You obviously want newbies and there have been rumors out for a long time that they are coming. Welp? Let's go! Get a house for Lucy to have a home base from. Kevin and Scotty can come and go, along with her daughters. The two of them might just have an interesting dynamic, no?
Bobbie? She can be around Carly's now and again to be with Joss and Lucas. Monica and she can have lunch. Lucy, Felicia and Bobbie can go out to Floating Jake's every once and awhile. But not like 4 months apart. It has to be more consistent. GH Is way to crowded -- and yes, I know we need newbies but some of the newbies are just NOT NECESSARY.
So, there you have it. I had to get that out. And in it's own special little post. I can't wait until Sunday!!
