GH: Laura's Return, was the Joke on us?

Lulu began to lose her mind due to killing Logan Hayes in self-defense. While on the run with Johnny, Logan continued to haunt her. Johnny risked his freedom to bring her back to Shady Brook a mental institution in Port Charles. He was thrown back in jail and tried for Logan's murder, though a jury of his peers, which included Epiphany and Edward Quartermaine, found him not guilty.

Meanwhile back at the institution, Lulu had to suffer alone or so she thought as her mother Laura began to speak with her. When Lulu brought Nikolas and Lucky to visit their mom, it was revealed that Laura was just a huge delusion created by Lulu to cope with her circumstances. So was the joke on us?

Dorian staged a hostile takeover of Buchanan Enterprises giving the company the new moniker of Cramer Enterprises. Even if she acted alone in her revenge, certain situations gave her the opportunity to succeed.

So who is to blame? The easiest answer would be the decision makers who created and/or approved this plot after Phil Carey declined to appear without a contract as Asa Buchanan, since the takeover is fallout from Asa’s death. Including Dorian’s actions, what else lead to the downfall of the house of Buchanan?

OLTL: Todd and Marty Kiss September 2008

One Life to Live had something I never thought I would see, Marty Saybrooke and Todd Manning kissing. Way back in 1993, Todd along with his two buddies Powell Lord and Zach gang raped Marty at a college party.

Now, Marty has amnesia and doesn't remember that Todd raped her. She does know about the rape, and that they had a past. Prior to the rape Todd and Marty slept together once.
