So…GH writers have decided to have Carly talk with Robin and help her realize that she does indeed have PPD, following Emma’s birth. Good! That’s right, I LIKE it! If you’re still reading let me tell you why. (If you’re still reading AND giving me the finger – save it for Guza and Frons. You know they have more screwing up to do and I’m just a soap blogger with an opinion).
Here’s what I like about Carly reaching out to Robin: it puts an end to the silliest feud in soap history. It closes the chapter on both women’s lives as mobster molls.
Carly and Robin’s antagonism was linked to their love for Jason and his confusion about his feelings for them. It was when Carly taunted Robin with the idea that Jason would always be a part of her and Michael’s lives that the stink hit the fan.
Robin wanted Carly to give Michael to her and Jason to raise. Carly, of course, said no and Robin told AJ the truth – that he, not Jason, was Michael’s father. Robin felt that she was ‘protecting’ Jason – uh huh… The animosity has grown steadily since that time.
Now? Both women have moved on. Both have grown – Carly at a slower pace and not without taking a few hits. Both women can hold their heads up high (and without worrying about being shot since their current husbands aren’t gangsters. In Carly’s case I should add that she no longer has to fear taking another shot to the dome).
In the years that have passed they’ve had real lives, careers, children, and chances at real happiness. Their conflict over something that no longer matters is tired and stale and childish. When women go to war on this show, let it be over something worth fighting for – like stocks, bonds, and board room dominance.
Let Carly and Robin make peace and move on. Neither is (or should be) in love with Jason so hanging on to any animosity related to that time in their lives dishonors them both and the good men who love them.
I’m afraid to look….are you stilll giving me the finger?
