As every one in soapland knows Kyle (Brett Claywell) and Fish (Scott Evans) are set to exit One Life to Live on-air in mid-April. But, TV Guide Magazine reports today, as we all have known, that for our favorite gay couple Kish, there’s still some plot before we have to say our sad goodbyes on April 12th, their last airdate, which has been confirmed by ABC. Kyle will be back on air solo for one episode on April 16th.
As previously announced on March 29, Fish will find out he’s the father of baby Sierra Rose. Scott Evans (Fish) tells TV Guide the fans are upset over the police officer’s inability (thus far) to deal with the elephant in the room, that he could be the baby daddy of Sierra Rose. “There are a lot of angry fans saying, ‘Why doesn’t Fish just man up and be responsible?‘ But they’re missing the bigger picture. This is a scary thing Fish isn’t ready for. He’s just out of the closet. He’s just started a new relationship. People take nine months to prepare to welcome a child into their lives. Fish isn’t mentally prepared to take this next step forward. He’s from this conservative upbringing and there’s a part of him that thinks a kid should have a father and a mother. I don’t necessarily agree with that. As long as you have parents who love you, it doesn’t matter what sex they are.”But, for Fish, well… he can’t just lose all the things he was taught his whole life in just a matter of a few months. I wish everybody would give Fish a break here. He still has unresolved hang-ups about his family—especially his father—and that takes time to get over. A lot of the gay fans don’t see it that way, but if gays want acceptance, we also have to accept gay people who think differently from the rest of us—and then try to change their minds!”
