Warning to those that haven't watched today's episode yet: All My Children spoilers ahead!
In a twist, the latest killer to be featured on the show was intent on killing Adam Chandler (played by David Canary).
Instead, the murderer accidentally took out Adam’s sweet, mentally-challenged twin brother, Stuart. In an interview after that development aired, TV Guide Magazine spoke to Canary:
On Adam getting revenge: Oh, he wants revenge all right. That’s popping in and out of the upcoming scripts on a pretty regular basis. He’s taken a kindness to Annie [Melissa Claire Egan] because she protected him during that awful night when his house was full of people with guns wanting to kill him. Adam feels Annie truly saved his life, so he’s taking her under his wing. He wants revenge and to be a better person. Go figure.
On missing Stuart: I’ll tell you this: It’s going to be harder to win an Emmy! I’m embarrassed to admit it but I’ve won the Emmy five times, and every time I have submitted Stuart scenes. But I’m accepting this as a challenge. I think it’s going to help the show, and has the potential to be something very poignant, maybe even beautiful.
Of course, we’ll see if having Adam solo is going to carry the weight the two of them did. I doubt that it will. But this does give us the chance to see another side of him—the broken-hearted man who feels he better get his life in order or else. This is going to put some real energy into the show. So, one way or the other, the spirit of Stuart will live on.
