Before I start talking about today's episode, I just wanted to quickly say that I'm so sorry to all you Guiding Light fans. I've never watched the show, but I think it's terrible that a soap that's been on over seven decades is being canceled. I know if ATWT got canceled, I'd be devastated, so I'm very sorry.
