OLTL’s Schuyler Joplin has been plagued since he came to Llanview. First he got mixed up with the teen drama queen Starr and lost his job. He let Stacy pull him head first into the Morasco Fiasco. He let Kim string him along and let Gigi use him as a consolation prize. Now, we find out that Schuyler is Mitch’s son, and that he too can be an ass. Gigi dumped Sky on his ass and Sierra Rose isn’t his daughter. The boy has lost his damn mind and taken Gigi hostage by gun point, and for that, Schuyler is our Jackass of the Month.
I have been watching soaps all of my life and I have to tell you I have never seen fans react to casting shake ups as they are reacting to the firings and write offs of our favorite actors and characters on OLTL. Seems like things started to go downhill when Crystal Hunt was let go, and snowballed from there ending at the demise of one of the most popular couples on daytime, Kyle and Fish. Rumors are swirling that the entire Evans family is getting the boot, and the internet is still buzzing with the news that Florencia Lozano might be on her way out. As much as we fans want to support our shows, and I know I for one always will, OLTL execs make it very hard to stay loyal to a show that isn’t interested in what we have to say. Just saying.
This week on OLTL, Gigi and Schuyler wage war against one another for custody of Sierra Rose. Clint and Kim are going to join in the battle after they tie the knot, if Kim will sign the prenup. All the while, the other baby daddy, Fish, is keeping mum about his potential role as sperm donor. Kyle isn’t happy with the way Fish is handling this situation and told him so on today’s episode. OLTL fans are crucifying Schuyler for not stepping up for the baby, but I hear very little bitching about Fish. Fish is a good guy, and the guilt is obviously eating away at him. Fish needs to man up and at least get a paternity test to see if he is the father. We know Gigi and Rex would take good care of Sierra Rose, but I think we all want to see Kyle and Fish take the journey as parents together. It would make for a great story! Who do you think should end up with custody of Sierra Rose? Please leave your comments below!
Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Crystal Hunt will reprise her role as Stacy Morasco one last time on March 3. I wonder if she will be wearing Kimmy’s boots.
Looks like Stacy is going to be hanging out in Llanview a little bit longer than we expected. On Thursday, February 11, Stacy will welcome her “tiny dancer”, Sierra Rose, with the help of her sister Gigi. At the same time, Rex will try to take Schuyler’s life by strangling him. He will not be successful. Nevertheless, it will be hilarious to watch. The truth about the skank-baby will come out in the following weeks and all the guilty parties will be exposed. Does this mean we can expect a Rex and Gigi redo? My magic 8-ball points to YES.
