YOU GUYS. LUCAS IS BACK. HE'S BACK AND HE WENT STRAIGHT TO SAMI AND THEY'RE TALKING AND BEING HONEST AND BANTERING AND HUGGING AND SAYING THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. IN THE SWEETEST WE'VE-FINALLY-LOOPED-BACK-AROUND-TO-BEING-BEST-FRIENDS-AFTER-ALL-THE-SHIT-WE-PUT-EACH-OTHER-THROUGH WAY.



THIS IS BASICALLY MY REACTION:


(And not because I just chloroformed someone.)

I CAN'T EVEN PROCESS THIS YOU GUYS. I just...it's hard to explain if you've never fallen in love with a soap couple. I've been shipping these characters since 1997. That's literally half my life. It's close to half of *their* lives. Soaps have a lot of issues (shit, I haven't even watched Days regularly since 2004 because I couldn't stand it), but they are unrivaled in the amount of history that can be brought to a single scene, just because their characters have been on for *so long*-- it's amazing.

I honestly thought I had this out of my system. Like I said, I haven't even watched since 2004. But then I watched today's show (and Monday's, since they air a day ahead in Canada and the Canadians are a kind and generous people) and I wanted to hop up and down with how excited and happy and thrilled I was. Seriously, in just these two days, we've gotten more than we used to get in *years.*

So basically, HEARTS. HEARTS IN MY EYES.

I KNOW, RIGHT??? They were my first DOOL OTP when I began watching in 1997 and Sami was still hiding that Lucas was Will's father!

That's when I started watching too!!! Oh my gosh, it felt like we waited forever for that reveal, and now it's been almost 15 years since it happened! Somewhere, I still have a VHS tape of the entire paternity-reveal week. :D

holy crap, I'm having some serious flashbacks....my boyfriend-at-the-time's Mom was obsessed, and therefore got me into it as well...I remember Sami and her sister and they fought over Austin (?) and Lucas always seemed to get the shit end of the stick, then Sami's preggers, has a kid, gets electrocuted and has amnesia. Yeah, I'm pretty sure she taped all those episodes as well lol....
Lucas is back. I'm trippin.

You remember correctly! Sami and Carrie didn't so much fight over Austin as Sami kept trying to steal him. Although Austin was an idiot so why either of them wanted him is a mystery. But yes poor Lucas usually got the short end. He and Sami have two kids now...though she also has two with another guy and is married to yet another. And two of the kids are twins, but with different dads. Oh, soap operas. Never change.

Lol. Me too, honey. Flailing squeefest going on at my house. Didja see the hugs? The kiss? Didja replay the I love yous? Cause I did, a few times. I haven't watched Dool since Alice died. But I came back for Lumi. I've also gone back and watched the last couple weeks of Sami, Marlena, and Will... no idea what else is happening in Salem, but I'm all caught up on my favorite Horton family!

Yes, yes, and yes! Soooo excited. I'm loving will's storyline too. I'm looking forward to his scenes with Lucas. The only other thing I know is going on is that Abigail is the new Sami because she's trying to steal Austin from Carrie. Can I just say, ewwwww.

I completely understand, my friend. No judgment from me! I'm just happy for you! :-)

I so get this. I grew up with As The World Turns, and had my share of beloved couples over the years. I was really sad when they took it off the air...
*sigh*

Enjoy!

Ugh I know, it's sad how many soaps are gone now. There's only four left!

Lucas and Sami were always SO much better for each other than anyone else. Then again, I never liked Austin in the first place and couldn't stand the fighting over him--as I didn't understand it. But I am SO happy to see Lucas back. Lumi makes me smile.

Now if I could just get Mike & Carrie and Brady & Chole (from yesteryears ... NOT as they are today) ... I might be even happier.

But I love how comfortable these actors are (and still are) with each other. I think it's really reflected in their roles.

They make me smile too! I seriously giggled out loud a couple of times. (Especially when Kate showed up at the pub and she was all agog at the two of them and Lumi instantly started screwing with her, as if they'd never been apart. I burst out laughing when Sami was all "You know, because of Rafe" with her faux-genuine expression.) They are *so* comfortable with each other, and so genuinely happy at being in scenes with each other again. They totally outclassed all the other storylines this last week. :D

I was never into Brady and Chloe, but I really liked Mike and Carrie. It made me not hate Carrie! Alas, not happening. Carrie is apparently going to be with cardboard-cutout Rafe for the next while.
