  1. Okay, I was a huge Cass & Kathleen fan and never warmed up to Frankie, but seeing that photo of Stephen Schnetzer and Alice Barrett Mitchell made me smile so damned hard, my cheeks hurt. They look great and I miss Another World!

    1. Me too! Cass & Kathleen are my all-time favorite soap couple. It took me three years to accept Frankie, and was so ticked off when the triangle in 1991 was slanted in her favor (new writers that didn't totally get Cass & Kathleen). But Alice Barrett is terrific and it was no fault of hers. I eventually got over it and loved Cass & Frankie too (and later Cass & Lila). I wouldn't be upset though if Julie Osburn was also on the upcoming episode of The Following. :)

  2. I screamed when I saw Frankie and Cass, my fav couple from Another World on The Following! How I miss AW!
