The Lewis/Spaulding Partnership
Let me preface this by saying that I really like the Billy/Lizzie interaction
that we’re seeing now. In fact, its one of the best storylines, in my opinion,
that they have going on the show right now. That being said there are definitely
some things about this that need to be mentioned.
Part of the reason that the Lizzie and Billy storyline works so well is that
it makes sense. It wasn’t thrown together haphazardly. It’s actually a well
thought out pairing. Lizzie has desperately been looking for a father figure
since Phillip was shot, and Billy has only wanted someone to care for. Once Reva
got better he just seemed like a lost soul. So in that sense, this is perfect.
However and here’s the big but - this duo will only work with the two as
friends and mentors. And nothing more. I don’t know if we can trust the
writers, especially after the fiasco that was Alan-Michael and Marina, not to
make this an inappropriate relationship by throwing romance in as well. I really
hope that they keep things as they are between the two instead of making the
viewers want to retch uncontrollably.
It’s great to see more of Jordan Clarke on the show, especially as an
employee of Lewis Construction. It had seemed, for a while at least, that those
days were over. I’m only saddened that Lizzie and Billy had to start their
friendship as we found out about Billy falling off the wagon yet again.
Sometimes I wonder if the writers can even write Billy without including
All that being said, I look forward to this storyline evolving into a real
treat to watch. Billy’s son, Bill, is on his way back into town, and it looks
like Alan wants to make Phillip’s dreams of transforming Springfield into
“Spauldingville” a reality. From this vantage point it sounds like another turf
war in Springfield, with one Spaulding on the opposite team. If those in charge
at Guiding Light make the right decisions, we’re in for some good Guiding Light
moments in the days ahead.
