I Needed a Box of Tissues
Week of July 3 to July 7
by Sonia

I couldnít bare watching this weeks episodes and the reason is because I knew (well most ATWTís fans knew) that the character of Jen was going to be killed off. Since a characterís Ďdeathí is happening on a soap its usually tragic (eg. Explosions) or all of the scenes are very, very emotional. Last week Jen collapsed in her room, and was rushed to the hospital. Her condition seemed to get worse, by the second and in the end the doctors announced that Jen would have survive her condition. Everyoneís eyes glared at Lucy because Jen was suppose to stay in the hospital. (Ok what was Lucy suppose to do tie Jen to the hospital bed and force her to stay, Jen chose to leave because she wanted to, and Dusty can blame everyone but the truth wonít change) The scenes where Jen was saying good-bye to her entire family, was literally heartbreaking (I felt like a complete and utter loser because I was crying over a fictional characters death) The emotional scenes got worse when Will said good bye to his sister, and the tears were just coming down his face, I felt so bad for this kid. (Gwen/Will fans take notice that I felt bad because I donít think youíll ever hear me say those words again) Jen handle the news of her impending death, and saying goodbye with total grace and dignity. (If a doctor told me that I was going to die, I would be screaming at the top of my lungs, and crying until the cows came home) Every time the show went to commercial I kept saying over and over, I hate this week, I hate this week. All Jen fans know exactly what Iím talking about, I still donít know why sheís gone, itís a complete mystery. Dusty and Jen finally got married, and he laid right beside his new bride, and he dreamed that they were having their first dance. After his dream finished he looked over at Jen and he knew that she was gone (Ok even as Iím writing this Iím getting upset, I want Jen back, I want the actress Jennifer Ferrin back) The cutest thing was that Jen made a video for Johnny, and on the video she celebrates his birthday. This coming week is probably going to be just as hard because everyone is going to be dealing with the emotions of her death.

Well this is all just my opinion
