Carrie Genzel On ABC's 'Castle'

Just a reminder.. Carrie Genzel (AMC's Ex-Skye Chandler) will be playing a former supermodel whose billionaire hubby blows up in a suspicious plane crash on an upcoming episode of ABC's 'Castle'. Carrie tells ABC SID..
"I had such a great time, and it was great to see Nathan Fillion (OLTL's Ex-Joey) again after all these years, We had a lot of fun catching up and talking about 'the old days' of ABC Daytime."
Although previously reported to be airing on Monday, January 3rd, the episode titled "Poof, You're Dead" will actually be aired Monday, January 10th, at 10pm EST. Check your local listings for times.

It's All About Erica Kane!




Susan Lucci's Erica Kane is the queen of daytime, so it's only fitting that her Royal highness would ring in the new year front and center. Special Erica Episode was slated to air tomorrow (New Years Eve) but dew to a presidential speech that will air tomorrow in stead, The 'All About Erica' episode will air on Monday Jan 3rd 2011. So you know what that means right... Not only was today a re- run, but tomorrow and Monday will be too.

Cara Castillo is an Iron Butterfly

Cara Castillo may be beautiful, but that doesn’t mean she’s just a pretty face. In fact, portrayer Lindsay Hartley says she’s going to be quite a force for Pine Valley to reckon with! “She’s cocky and confident,” the California native reveals of her medical-minded alter ego. “The writing has made it really easy for me to develop her; they’ve written some really nice things. And I’ve thought about it a lot and decided that I really like the character; I have fun playing her.”

Though fans have gotten to see a little bit of who Cara is via Jake’s flashbacks and the videos ABC posted on their official Web site, the character still remains a mystery, and no one is quite sure why she really came to town in the first place. But Hartley says the story will soon unravel — and she has a feeling viewers will be pleasantly surprised. “In a few months, you guys are going to see other things about why she is the way she is,” the actress teases. “And I hope people like her and the whole group that is happening now!”

To find out more about the character and Hartley (who dishes on what it’s like to work with not one but two devilishly sexy men), be sure to pick up the latest copy of ABC Soaps In Depth, on sale now!

Lisa's Weekly "All My Children" Rant...

First things first...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Tomorrow is Daniel Cosgrove's first airdate as Scott Chandler. I AM SOOO EXCITED!!!!!! I have my opinions and storyline for Scott all mapped out but need your help on that. We need TC Warner back as Kelsey Jefferson so that they can work together again and become a couple. They toyed with it back then and had such sexual chemistry!! I would really like to see it again........... Please write to the show so that can maybe happen. I do not want Scott with Marissa or Annie!! Email me @pequena12311@yahoo.com with more Kelsey storylines and TC and I will look at them and submit them to the show! Thanks in advance for your help!

I would like to see Reese back.........Give Bianca some closure or they can get back together? I think that they are going to put her with a man.....Any thoughts?? I love Christina Bennett Lind as Bianca and can totally see her with a man!!

Cara really needs to back off Jake and Amanda...He sexy brother needs to lay off Kendall and Amanda also........Maybe they will couple Griffin with Bianca and Kendall will be jealous????

Greenlee sure has nerve talking to Madison the way she did. Greenlee just showed how spoiled she is when things do not go exactly her way!

No Asher, Damon, and Colby (not in that order) this week does not make me happy!! They are definitely this fan's favorites!

The new opening...YAY or NAY?? I am loving it!! There are a few that should have been in there and why is Zach in there? Love Zach, ya know, but he left.......Should not be in there. Natalia should have been there and Amanda was only there slightly.

Thanks for letting me rant! These are only my opinions; we all have them. Happy Holidays and see you in Pine Valley!!

Spoilers for the week of December 20th 2010...


Madison's pregnancy remains a threat to Greenlee and Ryan's relationship as long as Madison's around so Greenlee is prepared to take care of that. But will her job be taken care of for her when she finds Madison passed out in the snow (and will she get help?).


Kendall is surprised to get a Christmas gift from Zach a journal detailing his feelings for her. And as 2010 dawns, Kendall and Erica get some interesting news about Zach and what both ladies can expect for themselves in 2011. Once you hear it, we'll let you decide what you think it really means.


Cara is finding it harder and harder to work with Jake, given that they used to be married and all. This is making Amanda real uneasy so she places a call posing as Cara that could cause a whole heap of trouble.


JR's made significant progress with Marissa enough that he's sure a joint custody agreement is imminent. Annie remains an unstable threat, but that's not the only problem Scott has re-entered the picture (now played by Daniel Cosgrove). Scott's surmised that JR is conning Marissa and may just tell her as such.


Quick programming note: There are no original episodes on Thursday, December 30 and Friday, December 31. Instead, you can see the episode where Erica pumped David full of hot lead, plus the fallout from the shooting.

THE EXPOSER's Exclusive Interview with Christina Bennett Lind (AMC's Bianca Montgomery)

WE HAVE A WINNER! Please Enjoy Christina's Interview...

Alright Binks Fans, Are y'all ready for this FANtastic interview with Christina Bennett Lind (AMC's Bianca Montgomery)? Well first i must give big "Thank You!" to Christina for taking time out of her very busy schedule to answer fans burning questions. Thank you to all you fans that submitted great question to Christina's Interview with THE Pine Valley EXPOSER!, It was so hard to narrow them down, hopefully we can have Christina come back real soon to answer more. Be sure to check the end of Christina's questions. Where she will ask you (her fans) one questions about her character Bianca Montgomery and the first person to answer her question correctly will win this autographed photo of Christina.

So without further delay to y'all, Check out Christina's interview and see if your questions made the cut......

THE Pine Valley EXPOSER!: Where are you from and are you able to get back there often? And when back home where is the one place in your home town you must visit (restaurant, school, mall, exc..) when you return?

Christina Bennett Lind: I was born in Pennsylvania but I grew up in upstate New York, a small town called Guilderland, just outside of Albany. My parents moved for work to Ohio and then New Jersey when I went to college, so I haven't been back much except to visit friends and to do a play there in 2006. The one place I must visit is a place called Tawasentha Park. I took swimming classes there in the summers, skated on the ice rink in the winters, went leaf-peeping in the fall, and performed with my local ballet company in the summers at their big outdoor amphitheater. I even had my senior picnic there for school and ran on my cross-country team through the trails! That park holds some deep-seeded memories for me, and I always try to at least drive by, if not make a picnic and do some pas de deux on the stage!

TE: Are you single, or is there a special someone in your life?

CBL: I am not single, I have a boyfriend of 5 years. We started dating as roommates in New York City and, since we couldn't afford to move, have been dating ever since! (Just kidding, there are other reasons!) He's a very talented actor and filmmaker in New York and is from Dallas, originally. (Any Texans out there? Go Stars!)

TE: Not only are you a wonderful actress but you are also a writer/ producer, You wrote 'The Talk Man' due for a 2011 release date. Can you tell us about this? How did you get into writing/ producing and is this something will will see more of from you in the future?

CBL: First of all, thank you! I have always had an attraction to the many sides of this business and of all the fine arts, and in my dreams for the future, I see writing/producing/directing/acting/ as a 4-sided die of myself as an artist. I have been writing my whole life but really dove into it when I met my boyfriend, who is a huge proponent of self-generated work. I actually co-wrote 'The Talk Man' with him, as well as a small film called 'grown' that we made together in 2009, which I also directed and edited. I have learned, first and foremost, that the old saying is true: if you can see it, you can do it! I was struck by how 'possible' it is to conceptualize and produce new work. (It's not easy, and not all of us are genius', but it's POSSIBLE. That's the first step.) I hope to do a lot more in the future. I'm finishing the final draft of a play at the moment, hoping to produce a play in the next year, and am preparing a screenplay for its baby steps towards being made, so I'll keep everyone posted...fingers crossing now...

TE: How old were you when you got your first acting gig? and what was it?

CBL: When I started acting, I was in about 7th grade. I was a dance my whole life so I was used to being on stage and performing. My mother was my first dance teacher at about age 4, so I learned the presence and discipline from her that I continue to use on set today. My English teacher suggested starting a drama club and producing a play, which (as an English teacher, I mean come on) had to be Shakespeare. So we auditioned for 'Twelfth Night' and, as it turned out, I got Viola and my twin sister, Heather, got Sebastian (the male twin of Viola: she had to dress in drag.) At that time, I wanted to be an artist and maybe work as an animator and she had always been set on acting, so I offered her the role of Viola, who is more of the lead. I am grateful to her that she didn't say 'Sure' because I caught the bug and have loved it ever since. (Except for when my 7th grade boyfriend whistled at me when I came on-stage, at which point I was horrified that he didn't take it as seriously as I did. That relationship didn't last much longer...)

TE: How did you feel stepping into the role of such a loved daytime lesbian character?

CBL: I was a little worried that I wouldn't be as well-liked as Eden was, but I think I realized pretty quickly that I didn't have control over that and I just needed to do the best I could to embody the character and try to make Bianca (and Eden) proud. My first day on-set was the scariest, because not only was I working with these amazing actors for the first time, I was aware that this was how the New Bianca would be presented, and I wanted to be as honest and open as I could. I've always believed in first impressions, and I just wanted to allow the fans to arrive back in Pine Valley with Bianca, to get to know her as I got to know her, and so to be as much a part of who this character is as I now am. As far as the lesbian element, I was truly excited and proud to represent a character with such a rich subtext and unique place in Pine Valley and the hearts of the daytime audience. I was aware right from the beginning that it's a gift to play someone who is different than everyone else because it's such a universal feeling to be an outsider, and not only could I relate to that but my fans could relate to it. It feels like I'm sharing that feeling with the fans, and so I don't feel like an outsider at all. I feel like I have a community behind me, rooting me on.

TE: We attended your Karaoke event in LA back in Sept. Is singing something you enjoy doing? Eden Riegel's Bianca sang on AMC do you think we will ever see your Bianca singing on the show?

CBL: I don't usually enjoy singing in public, but Karaoke is fun because the pressure to be good is gone! It's more fun if you're terrible! I took singing lessons in high school and can read music, but I usually stick to the shower or my car...mostly because I've heard what really good singing can be! I'm very self-critical, as I'm sure we all are! I hope I can do some singing on the show, though. I usually find it's easier to rise to a goal than just to break out singing, so I'm open to it all. And if Bianca sang, then Bianca sings! When I'm in character, I feel far less pressure. It's just like putting on a disguise: I can do anything!

TE: What is the best acting advice you have ever been given and who gave it to you?

CBL: This is the hardest question to answer, since I've have so many good teachers in my life. I remember being in an 'Acting for Shakespeare' class in college with Roger Rees and he was trying to describe what he feels is the essence of Shakespeare's work. He was trying to show us that it's not a different language (as it seems, sometimes, at first..) but that it's "PEOPLE, who talk like this." He put his hand out, palm up, and said "it's people," and then put his other hand out, palm up, directly over it, and said, "who talk like this." He was trying to show us that, in the end, acting is about people who are saying these things, and that no matter how confusing or complicated, if we remember that WE are people TOO and, therefore, understand what being a person IS, we can learn how to make even Shakespeare natural and human. I use that advice today on set and in life.

TE: Do you have a favorite fan story? Maybe something a fan has sent you or said to you?

CBL: I was at a fundraiser event for an amazing not-for-profit company called 'Peace Over Violence' and I was standing with Stephanie and a woman came over to us. She actually worked for the company and talked about how she always ti-Vo's it or watches at night on SoapNet because she's working during the day. She said she has watched for years and, very simply, that it allows her and all the fans an hour out of the day to let go, relax, and focus on something outside of herself. She was so grateful for the distraction but also the reflection it allowed her, and I was so struck by her taking a moment to tell us that. She just said, 'thanks,' and went away and left Stephanie and I standing there, speechless. I feel very grateful that I have a job that does that for people once in awhile. It feels really good.

TE: Before landing your gig on AMC, did you or any of your friends & family watch the show? If so what where their thoughts on you being cast on the show? As Erica Kane's daughter none the least.

CBL: After landing the job, I realized how many people in my life DID watch the show and I had no idea! I still hear from people who take time out of their lunch break or watch at night who I hadn't expected, and even more people I've gotten hooked on the show! My parents are so proud and started watching for me, and now they 'won't miss it,' and are wrapped up in all the families! My Poppa is 92 and he watches everyday, too! I have a huge support system behind me, and that's so lucky. Everyone was so excited for me that I got to work with Susan and I think that, by far, the most-asked question is how it is to work with her and 'is she really that beautiful in person?' Yes. She is. And Yes. It's been a dream to work with her, she is such a professional. She's the best.

TE: You have a wonderful style of dress, Can we ever except to see the character Bianca in any thing other then dark colors? Maybe bring a little of your style to Binks?

CBL: Thank you! I've always loved clothes and experimenting with them. I think the transition from Eden to myself was a challenge for the wardrobe department as much as it was for the fans. David Zyla (the costume designer) is so wonderful and is completely open to my sense of style blending with Bianca's; it's like we're blending two people into one, and I want to learn as much about Bianca and how she has presented herself in the history of the show and stay true to her way of being in the world. It is also invaluable to me as an actor to be dressed somewhat differently than 'Christina' dresses, as it helps me feel like a different person and feel as Bianca might. Clothes, as we all know, can change how we feel about ourselves and how we prepare ourselves for a variety of situations. As my good friend and fashion designer Mallory always quotes, "One shoe can change your life. -Cinderella.'"

TE: How hard where the recent scenes you did with Alicia Minshew (Kendall), After Kendall loosing Zach. She made me cry. How do y'all do it?

CBL: Alicia is incredible. I think her depth of work on those scenes was astonishing, as good as a lot of work I've seen in movies and on stage, and I want to applaud her for that. I really just watched her and did what moved me. We wanted it to be really focused on her, and so my strategy was just to listen to her and be there for her, as an actor and a person. Some moments, I was sad that I had to imagine all the history between these characters (besides the youTube frenzy I participated in when I got the job...) but that's also what's so fun about this job: taking the facts and imagining what I would have done in those circumstances. Then, it was just about listening to Alicia and letting her direct the scenes. I also would guess that, as a person, she was missing Thorsten, too, as was I. I only met him a few times but he can really get under your skin, in a good way. He's pretty incredible and hard not to want around, so there was a lot of mourning going on, and we could all relate to it. The shared feeling made it easier to come together and it felt very real and honest. That's probably why you cried; we were crying, too!

TE: Is Bianca ever going to get a love interest, like every other character on AMC, or in your opinion is homophobia in daytime TV alive and well?

CBL: I think it's actually the opposite of homophobia. I get the sense that it's so important for AMC now, as a trail-blazer in the gay community, to make Bianca and Reese right in some way and to do them honor and treat the story with respect. I know there will be a love interest for Bianca. She loves so hard that it would be impossible not to explore that with her! But I think they're taking very tiny steps and being extremely cautious and sensitive in order to take as much time and give as much significance to this important part of the Bianca and Pine Valley and to avoid any mistakes. It's so important to them that they treat Bianca's love life with respect. I feel that on set everyday, and I have the utmost confidence that when it becomes a prominent storyline, it will be rich and deep and complex, and I'm grateful for that. I feel very safe and will fight for love in Binx's life!

TE: Do you have a specific method for memorizing your lines?

CBL: I find that as an actor, it's hard to memorize lines as they are: just words on the page. The first thing I do is read the scene all the way through, and then I work through it and find out what the 'meat' of the scene is, or what's really happening. I then go through and make sure I understand what I mean with every line and what I'm trying to get (the famous clche, 'What's my motivation?') and then I can remember it pretty quickly. It's just like in life: if you know WHY you're wanting to say something, you know what to say.

TE: Do you spend any time with the ladies of AMC outside of the studio? If so who? And what do y'all do for fun when y'all get together?

CBL: I do! It's different with everyone, depending on what they like to do! We keep trying to get together, all of us, for a girl's night! I've even been working on seeing Eden (we haven't met yet! In THIS life!) and it's just a labor of love, trying to clear our schedules enough. It's hard with soap actors because, as with the girl's not related to my storyline, they're working when I'm not, and with Alicia, she's working when I'm working! In the past, we've drunk wine together and eaten chocolate. That's one of my favorites.

TE: You have appeared on every episode of AMC since November 18th, How many days a week do you spend at the studio? What are your typical working hours?

CBL: During the sad first days of Zach's death, I was working 4 days a week (a full week for us) and was there anywhere between 8 and 12 hours. It really depends on how the schedule worked out that week, but it ebbs and flows as the stories shift. I love that every week's different, though. Doesn't get us in a rut!

TE: Did you originally audition for Bianca or was it a completely different character? Who did you screen test with and how do you feel they helped you?

CBL: I originally auditioned for the role of 'Beth,' and I kept those sides for awhile after, hoping it would be more. I found out before the test in L.A. that it was for Bianca, the daughter of a Kane, and that's when I got nervous. I screen tested with Rebecca and Cameron, who stayed late after work to rehearse with us and shoot the scenes, which (knowing how long these days can be) was incredibly generous. Rebecca gave me great advice; she told me to do my best not to be self-aware, but to just feel what I was feeling and not censor or judge it. It was great advice and is something I will always be working on in this business. She's a pro. Cameron was just so kind and warm, and gave the great gift of making me less nervous! He was open and friendly and really let me be myself, and that did wonders for me in such a high-pressure situation.

TE: Do you have an Official website or Fan Club fans can join, Or are you on Twitter or Facebook?

CBL: Yes! My fabulous website administrators Colleen Harris and Anne Shnee have created my unofficial fan site, www.christinabennettlind.net and I have an official page www.christinabennettlind.com (but there's is updated more often!) I also am on facebook as Christina Bennett Lind and I'm on Twitter as @ChristinaBLind. I owe a lot to my fans so reach out to me! I'll reach right back!

TE: If you hadn't gone into show business what other career would you have chosen for yourself?

CBL: I always wanted to be an artist. My dad is an amazing painter and I have always loved to paint, but for a long time, I wanted to be an animator. One of the first places I went to was the ABC administrative offices, which are right across from the Disney animation studio. I got out of the car and looked up at the big hat and said, "I've arrived!" It was a weird 'dream-come-true' moment I'll never forget.

TE: What is one thing fans would be surprised to learn about you?

CBL: I'm really mostly a homebody! I love to 'nest' and be cozy on the couch with a good movie and a blanket and tea, or sit in my studio or back garden with my laptop or a journal. I'm the kind of person who rarely gets bored and am always making lists and plans for what I can do in my place (even lists for what to do FOR my place!) and I love cooking and baking. I have my moments when I need to get out and let loose, but I really enjoy being with friends at home, too. It feels like my own private world and anything's possible.

TE: Can you give us any scoops on what is in store for Bianca?

CBL: I, as you know, can't give too much away but I DO know that very soon there will be some more information about Binx's marriage and Reese. I know she will continue to field the many stages of grief Kendall is experiencing and trying to be a force of strength for her, and I'm getting the sense that she's going to be on Erica about being truthful...that's all I can say....

OK, now Christina has answered all your questions, THE PV EXPOSER turned it over to her to ask her fans a question about her character Bianca.

Here's Christina's question to you...
"Of the following choices, what food or beverage have Bianca and Kendall NOT consumed together since May of 2010?"
a). Ice cream sundaes
b). Chocolate chip cookies
c). Champagne
d). Hot tea

Good one Christina. Wasn't that nice of her to add choices for y'all, First fan to post the correct answer in the comment section below will win a hand signed autographed photo of Christina Bennett Lind, Good Luck!

Agnes Nixon: A Soap 'Goddess'

Perhaps the best line in Erica Kane's Wikipedia entry is this one: "Seven of her marriages to six different men have been valid while four of her other marriages are invalid."

Erica is, of course, the most famous soap-opera character ... well, ever. She's been the linchpin of All My Children since it debuted in 1970, and she's the most iconic creation of Agnes Nixon, who is profiled on Monday's Morning Edition. Nixon created All My Children as well as its ABC sibling One Life To Live, and she's written for Guiding Light and other shows as well. Many of us who have been, at some time, soap viewers — who watched All My Children when we were home from school sick, or watched it with our mothers and our grandmothers, or still think of Castle and Firefly star Nathan Fillion as One Life To Live's Joey Buchanan — have spent an awful lot of time in Nixon's creative company. (Do you recognize this music HERE? If so, this may mean you.)

Spoilers for the week of December 20th 2010...


With Christmas approaching, Kendall's in bad shape. She's mourning Zach, and she learns that Erica's been faced with manslaughter charges for the David shooting. Kendall's in need of a miracle -- bad. Could one come -- from Zach?


Across town, Greenlee learns Madison is pregnant … which could really put a crimp in Greenlee's blossoming relationship with Ryan (the father of Madison's baby). Coupled with the fact that Greenlee can't get pregnant -- well, you've got one sensitive cosmetics executive. The question of the evening: will Greenlee tell Ryan the truth? Or will she find a way to handle the Madison problem, "Greenlee" style?


Annie's getting more unstable. Once JR loses Corltandt Electronics to Caleb, he grows increasingly despondent. And Marissa is there for him to lean on. Not Annie. And Annie is NOT happy. What's up with the fuzzy handcuffs, though?


All this PLUS Griffin has some stern warnings for Kendall, Erica and Caleb celebrate their victory, Cara tries to make nice with Jake, Frankie tells Madison she can't run away from making a decision, and someone's health is in jeopardy.


Quick programming note: there are no original episodes airing on December 23 and December 24. Instead, you can catch encore presentations of the episodes where David revealed himself to Pine Valley, very much alive.

Lisa's Weekly "All My Children" Rant...

This week was a good week in Pine Valley, no???

My first order of business is Scott and Annie are divorced!!!!!!!! I did a happy dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I got so excited but I am...And I got so excited when JR gave Annie a box.......Was hoping it was a ring to seal the deal!! Nope..Boy, Annie was pissed! I have to say so was I!

Kendall does not want to celebrate Christmas and Ryan and Greenlee just don't get it! Yes, Spike is Ryan's son; but she is mourning and they are not her favorite people right now!

Madison does not want to tell Ryan she is pregnant. Girl, he will find out. He has super x-ray vision and premonitions or something; so no chance of keeping it from him. Especially if you keep the baby!

And my co-worker was right...Griffin and Cara are brother and sister!! Well, that just proves he will go for Amanda and Cara for Jake! It is a good story; just hope it does not break up Jake and Amanda after all is said and done.

I need your help.. I want to step up my campaign for TC Warner AKA Kelsey Jefferson to come back to Pine Valley by sending in your suggestions on stories to bring her back to the show..... I, for one, want her with Scott; but will take any story and and TC and I will go through them and send the best ones to the show and her publicist(that one is up to her). Your help in advance will be appreciated.

David really needs to wake up already!!!!!!!!!!!! Enough said.

Thanks for letting me rant! These are only my opinions; we all have them!
Have a great vacation and see you in Pine Valley!

Alexa Havins joins Grey's Anatomy


When Meredith and Lexie Grey's father, Thatcher, returns to Grey's Anatomy in February, he'll be bringing with him a new lady, played by soap actress Alexa Havins (AMC's Ex- Babe Chandler).

While Alexa has appeared on episodes of Cold Case and CSI: Miami, Grey's is by far her highest-profile primetime gig to date.

How will Thatcher's daughters feel about their daddy dating a girl their own age? You'll have to wait and see, but it's safe to say they won't be overjoyed.

Look for Havins to make her debut on the ABC medical drama on February 10th.

Melissa Leo has a lot of fight in her

Melissa Leo (AMC's Ex- Linda Warner) is conflicted. For her latest film, "The Fighter," where she co-stars opposite Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale in a performance that's destined to earn her a second Oscar nomination, has her all knotted up with different emotions.

At once, the 50-year-old actress, who plays mother, manager and protector Alice Ward, is extremely proud of the movie. "In my scope of films, 'The Fighter' is, without a doubt, the greatest film I've ever been in." Yet, when asked if the tough love that director David O. Russell gave to her on the set led to a performance she's happy with, the actress pauses, and diplomatically responds, "I'm going to give you a 'no comment' on that."

Leo, who's dining on a very un-actressy breakfast of poached eggs, bacon and potatoes at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles, won't extrapolate on her answer but she does say that Russell's unorthodox way of asking for something—and sometimes yelling at his actors while they are in the middle of a scene—is not all that beneficial.

Holiday Hart-Break for Kendall!

Nobody needs a Christmas miracle more than All My Children's Kendall Hart (Alicia Minshew). She's about to receive one — but it's not the one she's hoping for. On the soap's December 27 episode, the Pine Valley heroine, still in deep mourning over the plane-crash death of her husband Zach (Thorsten Kaye), has a visit from Father Clarence, the magical, mystical priest who always appears on the show at holiday time to help those in need. (The terrific Malachy McCourt who played the role for many years had to bow out this time. He's replaced by Michael McCarthy).

"Kendall has this feeling that something big is going to happen on Christmas Eve and when Father Clarence shows up at her door she thinks he's going to tell her that Zach is somehow still alive, since they never found his body," says head writer Dave Kreizman. "Unfortunately, Clarence can't help Kendall with that, but he does lead her to the journal Zach had been writing — one that details his feelings for her."
