Soap Opera Digest: Last year, Executive Producer Frank Valentini took you for a walk to break the news that Anna was going to kill Carlos. How did you find out about death No. 2?
Jeffrey Vincent Parise: I had just done the jail scenes with Finola [Hughes, Anna], so I was flying high, and Frank pulled me aside. For a second, I thought he was just going to say, "Those scenes were really awesome," and he said, "So, I have to talk to you." It felt so much like déjà vu; I said, "No," and he said, "Yeah, you're going to die." I kept saying, "You're kidding. Come on, tell me you're kidding," and he was like, "No, I'm not kidding." I was just like, "Oh, no! Why?" He said, "It's just for the story. We kind of painted Carlos into a corner, and somebody has to die."
Exit Interview from SOD. Makes me furious. Just read it...this is everything that's wrong with soaps, imo. "Welp, someone had to die"...
Ok, then. Thanks. So, why did you bother making him Sabrina's supposed baby Daddy? Even if they change it to Michael later, why'd we sit through that? Why did you bring him back? To destroy Julian?? Furthering the MOB agenda??
UGH. I still have to write Thursday and Friday's show if I'm going to do Surgery. Oy.
