ATWT Opinion Article
Week of June 23
By Anna Banks
This week of As the World Turns left many questions unanswered.
Is James Stenbeck behind the kidnappings of Rose and Lily? With his masked
hints such as using the word ďdeepĒ continuously and being very smug about
the whole issue, it is looking more and more like he is, and this just
makes me very annoyed. Itís like the ATWT writers canít think of another
villain. Year after year they bring back Stenbeck, and year after year I
wonder when Stenbeck will become old. Since when was he remotely concerned
about Paul? And now he is trying to avenge his death.
When will Rose and Lily be rescued from the well? I hope soon, because
seeing the two of them in the same place for an extended period of time is
becoming tedious. Conversations about being rescued and being found and
ďhanging onĒ has already been worn down, and the scene is not getting
younger. Every time ATWT makes a cut to the twins in the well, I take a
deep yawn. They need to hurry up and get rescued, because nothing exciting
is happening down there.
Will Rosanna and Carly make their newfound friendship last? They better,
because it was great to see the sisters actually acting like siblings.
Itís pretty hard to imagine the camaraderie lasting when something very
similar to this happened months ago, when the two agreed it was better to
be friends than enemies. Everything blew up in their faces, of course, and
they ended up being more of adversaries than they were before. It was
refreshing to see Rosanna so vulnerable, and I like the change in the
What will happen to Dusty once he realizes that the fake Brackett is
probably a Stenbeck crony? Dusty has spent a long time in jail when itís
fairly obvious that he has nothing to do with the kidnapping of Rose and
Lily. I thought it was hilarious to see Dusty try to explain himself out
of murders all week long, and was quite surprised to find out that the
Agent Brackett that we all knew was a fake. At first when the fake
Brackett was talking to Molly, I thought he was a bit of a shady
character, but didnít think of it anymore when he was verified. Hopefully
next week we will see what has become of Dusty.
Well Bob and Rick are unconscious. At first I thought Rick could have
easily attacked himself to look less suspicious, but when I found out Rick
wasnít breathing, I thought again. Why would someone almost kill
themselves to divert suspicion? I would suppose that Rick is supposed to
be off the suspect list now that he is unconscious, but heís not off mine.
Thereís just something about that guy. . . .
Oh, yeah. Why would Bob call the supposed murderer to his office and tell
him that he was going to report everything? That just doesnít make sense.
If I had found out who the murderer was, my first stop would be the police
station, not the murderer himself!
Best scene of the week: Margo finding out who the real Agent Brackett
Honorable mention: Craig and Parker having hilarious male bonding.
Thatís all for this week.
