As the World Turns - Katie/Simon  
Well ... , Simon's run this time around is over, but they did what I hoped. They basically repaired all of the past visits that pretty much worked to destroy their magic, and they did the leave the door open definitely enough for his return when the show ends later this year. Katie wasn't ready what with Brad just dying, but she still clearly loves Simon. LOTS. And Simon pretty much loves her unconditionally. So now my hope is just that they haven't gone too far into the Katie/Henry story -- which they seem to be hinting at that is just WRONG!, didn't work the first time, really won't work now -- upon hearing the cancellation news. That way, they can back out of it, and just get Katie ready for the end of the show's run and Simon's return. Then they can live happily ever after.

Uh huh.

Eh, he's kinda an ass unless you're a "friend," I know that Terri adores him, but he defintely, definitely has asshole-ish tendencies. Oh well, I still love Simon.

I'm glad you posted this. I wanted to discuss it but I've been pretty distant from the soap world for a while that I didn't really know where to go.

They were excellent last week even though you could tell that they were setting it up for Katie to be running away from her memories instead of running to Brad.

And I guess today worked as both a solid "we weren't just meant to be" forever goodbye but I do think they left the door open. It was about Katie loving Simon too much to ever want to chain him to her (which I don't think he'd mind) or Oakdale (which he might) while she sorts things out. And Simon didn't seem convinced that not settling down was what he wanted either. In fact, I appreciate how consistent Simon has been in his belief that he could stay in Oakdale as long as it was with Katie and Jacob. The thing that really left the door open was with the way their eyes locked and Katie went to look out the door as he left. It reminds me of another time she insisted that he leave but later looked like she secretly hoped he'd disobey her. (It was after the horrid Pilar incident.)

I really hope he comes back but I don't know what ATWT has planned. This Kenry revisit seems to be out of nowhere. Vienna is supposedly back but she has disappeared again. And I thought Daniel Cosgrove was supposed to be another love interest for Katie. It doesn't seem like that leaves much room for Simon and yet I can't see the show ending any other way.
