I hate to be so negative about a memorial, but I can't help it. With decades of history, I really wanted to see some flashbacks of Caroline and her family. If film flashbacks are too expensive, then just have a couple posters of pictures of the characters, and simply pan over to it, after each character's "speech".
And I have to nitpick the speeches too. Other than John, did any of those character's "memories" happen onscreen? Surely they could have dredged up something, even recent for the recasts, that we viewers would remember.
The best scenes didn't even take place at the pub, but with Victor/Kayla and Victor/Hope.
I guess my expectations/wishes were just higher, as usual, than what the show can produce. 🙁
