I'm glad I haven't been watching. Roger is Todd and Franco is Franco. Stupid to try to make Todd (er Roger) into Franco IMO.

It's very obvious they are trying to rewrite the Franco character to be Todd 2.0.

So he's not a psychotic bad guy and was just horribly misunderstood by everyone? It was all a big mistake? Are we, as viewers, eventually supposed to grow to like Franco?

I miss Todd terribly, but I'm not so sure I'm buying this Franco/Todd mashup they've created.

I'm not familiar with Franco, but I think Todd made a better Todd than he does a Franco.

I certainly hope that the custody hearing doesn't drag out too long!!!
That's all we need is a rehash of Sam's life etc etc.

It's difficult getting my head around the new identities.

So how long will it be before Kiki dumps Morgan and sleeps with Michael?

I love the actor who plays Todd/Franco, so I'm really trying to go with it.

I hope not, because they are first cousins and share a common grandfather (Alan).

I told you that I'm having a problem keeping this altogether.
But, didn't John look like Stephen?

Yeah, and there was no explanation why a Landview/Port Charles cop looked like a vampire.

Or any explanation why that woman he was obsessed with (lizzie?) looked identical to Sam McCall.

This return of the the Three Musketeers cracks me up. They look so different from their previous characters. Dr. Clay with his stylish pony nub. Kiki with the dark hair and even more annoying personality. And "Franco" with that stupid blonde dye job. I can't believe he agreed to that.

Anyway, the viability of Toddy/Frank as a long term character doesn't look too promising. Even if Diane can get him off, (doubtful), everybody else in town wants him dead. How can he just hang around and carry on like the old Todd?

My take on all of this is that ABC hope it will win the lawsuit or have it dismiss that P. Park file against ABC. Or ABC will try to drag it on long enough that they will bankrupt P. Park and then try to regain control of the characters from OLTL. If you note all the "new" character are made to be replace. I think the actors are only on for six weeks and then they have to return to P. Park for six weeks.

This is where I think they are trying to go with the "Franco didn't really rape Sam and was really trying to protect Michael" scenario. They are trying to find a way for others to be more sympathetic to the Franco character and forgive him enough as to allow him to become a member of the Port Charles community. They look to be trying to show it was all just one big misunderstanding and, by golly, they would all really like him if they would just give him a chance.

In my opinion, it's very stupid...but that seems to be where they are leading us. Soap opera viewers have to suspend reality a LOT!

Yes, I agree that must have been the thinking, just slide him in sideways. But, with the level of hatred for this guy in Port Chuck, I don't see it working.

It would end up like the scene from Airplane where everyone is lined up to slap the hysterical passenger.

Why do I have a feeling that Danny is going to need a transfusion and Franco is going to be the only match?

It would have made more sense to just bring him in as a totally new character like they did with Star. Then we could just ignore that he looks a lot like Todd instead of having to also ignore that he looks nothing like Franco.

I'm waiting for "Franco" to reveal that he's actually Todd with a bad dye job.

Everyone will be so shocked!

This is the soap that recently brought back Duke Lavery as the original actor when they made a big thing about him getting plastic surgery to NOT look like the original actor years ago.

Wow, did the writers really find it necessary to add another annoying character and then put the two bitches together in one apartment?

BTW, Todd is still playing Todd. I don't think that Howarth has more than one character in him.
