Here's the thing: I am not one of the 'elite few' -- Maurice. Steve. Nancy Lee Grahn. Laura Wright. -- who actually get to go up to the fifth floor and sit down and have a nice long chat with Bob Guza and Jill Farren Phelps and say, 'Where is my character going?' These people know what's going to happen five, six months down the line. Diane is basically day-by-day, so I don't know what's going to happen.
I know that Alexis is in deep, deep trouble right now -- huge, huge trouble. She is going to do something with regards to her eldest daughter that could destroy Alexis's life -- and Diane is going to try to figure out every way underneath the sun to keep that from happening. She's going to staunchly stand by her friend. I think there's some funny stuff coming up with Max, that does not involve a marriage proposal, but might involve... (laughs) no, I can't spoil that!
I don't see a trial coming up in the foreseeable future, but basically there's some serious, serious goings-on with Alexis, and dear Alexis is playing it wrong right down the line, and Diane is trying to be the voice of reason, desperately trying to keep her friend from making one of the biggest mistakes of her life.
