The rex and gigi scene trying to get shane off the ledge broke my heart. I was crying uncontrollably. I love when oltl gets me to bawl my eyes out. Its not very often. Farah Fath deserves some praise.

outstanding and Emmy worthy. OLTL has done what the other soaps have not. that is giving us a fresh story which is painful and powerful… the writing is the best out of the 3 abc soaps… sh-sh we dont want Frons to know-he’ll force the writers to write for Gh … he doesnt care about the other soaps only GH.. He has an agenda. and i hope we shut him down before he cancels OLTL… wow how sad… please write Frons boss. or sign on line petition to fire Brian Frons anne.x.sweeney@disney.com

Great storyline, great writing, great acting–and then OLTL is canceled?! This cast, this crew, these writers consistently produce quality and deserve better.

I love Austin Williams. He’s fantastic. I felt so bad for him when GIGI died. Now Rex is going to ruin things for him. Rex thinks he’s doing something right.
