Just dawned on me... "White Haired Man" is LUKE from General Hospital!! So they should Genie Francis in as Em-manda's mommy. They could cross the plots so Em was really the daughter of Luke and Laura...It was an ABC Soap after all...Luke was a doctor, now he's doctor evil... Genie looks like Em... it all makes sense.... I am brilliant.
This is one of those shows that should have stuck to the original premise - knock off the hoity-toity Hamptons rich folks that screwed Emily er, Amanda.... put Jack and Amanda (the real one) back together... and call it a 'happily ever after' day. Nice single season summer replacement. Now it's going to have to jump the shark immediately just to stay on the air. We care about the main characters but I'm not sure we love them enough to follow them into back-from-the-dead-twisted-plot-wooden-acting oblivion. PS - for next season, please hire a new prop-master and start doing some consistency-checks. Little things like "Fake frost on the windows" one second "No fake frost on the windows" the next looks really obvious in Hi-Def. Cheez..zey! Dr. Steve Throne II
Diana DiGarmo should be the mom. Even though younger than Emily, she looks older so it _could_ work. Second choice - Jennifer Hudson. A young black woman would explain Emily's dark roots.
