I’m sorry to say there will be no installment in the Steve and Kayla story (80’s version) this week because I got behind in my clip watching. I was, however, coincidentally watching the scenes where Steve is arrested for Britta’s murder on the same day that 2007 Steve was arrested and committed for stealing John from the hospital. Someone on Hogan’s writing team has been doing their homework. Here’s some snippets of dialogue from Friday’s show:
Steve: “I was just gonna leave town, get out of everybody’s life. But you wanted to help. What is this help? You know what they’re going to do to me? They’re gonna lock me in with all the psychos, killers, and perverts, and I won’t be able to protect myself.”
Kayla: “I will not let that happen.”
Steve: “You already have, baby. You’re the one who got this ball rolling, you can’t stop it now.”
And here, from 1986, after Kayla encourages Steve to turn himself in, and her evidence (she heard Steve threaten Britta) is used against him to arrest him:
Steve: “I need to look out for number one, and that means not sitting here and listening to any more of your self-righteous crap.”
Kayla: “Dammit, Steve, I am going to help you whether you like it or not.”
Steve: “You can’t help me! So just forget it, will you? Just get out of my life. Every time you try to help it just causes me more pain.”
I love it!
I’ll try to have the next installment up by next weekend at the latest!
