...and the moment's gone

Really, we'd never have forgiven them if they'd ended it any other way.

And the closing moments sealed the future of the show's signature on-and-off-again supercouple: Reva (Kim Zimmer, who created the role in 1983) and Josh (Robert Newman, who started on the show in 1981).

They rendezvoused, according to plan, at the local lighthouse and declared their undying love. Then these soul mates climbed into Josh's pickup truck.

"You ready?" asked Josh.

"Always," Reva said.

And they drove away.

I agree. What a wonderful way to end.

I grew up on all the CBS soaps (mom would tape them and would sit and watch them all after dinner).

This is a better ending than when capital ended.

wow. I've never been a soap watcher (at least not the middle of the day kind) but you were right about the surprise at the list!

Don't forget James Lipton and Ed Begley Sr. !

My paternal grandmother watched GL, General Hospital, and As The World Turns religiously, and they formed a peculiar attachment between us - she totally got my infatuation with Star Trek.
