Besides talking about Llanview’s favorite duo’s thoughts on the heartbreaking cancellation of the series, fans learn that on the upcoming May 23rd episode that Matthew played by Eddie Alderson, is seriously injured in the head in a fight with Nate. So much so that he has very little brain-activity. Meanwhile, Uncle Clint, the great Jerry verDorn desperately needs a new heart, or he will die! Daytime Emmy winners, Woods and Smith weigh in on yet more tragedy and turmoil for the Buchanan family. Here are a few excerpts!
Woods and Smith on Bo and Nora realizing both Matthew and Clint are dying. Hillary: “Things get so bad that Bo and Nora actually set aside the murder — their minds just can’t handle that much. Decisions need to be made about Matthew. They’re told he has minimal brain activity just as Clint’s condition is suddenly worse. They’re being jerked around from one tragedy to another. It’s too, too much. Matthew’s getting worse. Clint’s getting worse. All they need now is a tornado to hit Llanview.” Bob: “And Bo has horrible guilt, feeling responsible for causing Clint’s heart attack. But at the same time, Bo wants him behind bars, paying for what he’s done. Yet here’s Clint barely fighting for his life. It’s pretty complicated stuff.”
Woods and Smith on the story point that when Clint knows he’s terminally ill, that he goes on TV and confesses to killing Eddie Ford and if Bo and Nora think this is their way out for Matthew not to be accused of the crime and to leave well enough alone! Hillary “Oh, Nora goes right there! Of course, she does! Bob: [Laughs] It’s like, “Hey, here’s the solution to our Eddie problem! Wanna go have lunch?
Hillary: [Laughs] “Works for me! I think we’re kinda done here.”
