Sally’s descent is eerily like how Ivy went from pivotal to window dressing to randomly popping up until she didn’t. Killing off Sally would be short sighted as she’s a Spectra and a designer and still has story potential if done right,
I’d hate to lose Pam as I’m a fan, she had a pretty crappy life until she came to LA which to have it cut short after finding family and love would suck, and they’ve established that for Ridge she’s a touchstone with the loss of Stephanie. Ridge talking to his Aunt Pam is one of the few times I find him genuine. If they do kill Pam, I hope it leads to Ridge finally be forced to face his grief for Stephanie. I’ve long felt that a large real part of why Ridge bailed on life in LA was because he just couldn’t watch his mother die. Couldn’t be anywhere near it. He hid abroad using Brooke’s text with Deacon as a reason why he wasn’t with her and ‘releasing’ her so she wouldn’t witness his pain and abandoned Eric and everyone else to deal with it. Pam dying would be a way for Ridge, Brooke, and Eric to work through this, confront each other, and heal finally.
Eric can never die. He just needs to go join Sally Sr. on her never ending cruise.
Also didn’t Bell say someone would die in the toxic vat of acid goo? And that came to nada.
Hate to say it but the only deaths that would turn the canvas upside down at this point would either be Liam, Hope, or Steffy.
-Bill losing his firstborn son and Hope and Steffy losing their baby daddy has legs. Forces them both to move on.
-Brooke has never lost a living child which would be devastating; RJ, Bridget and Rick would be promoted home; Deacon would have lost his daughter and Liam as single dad to Beth all have legs.
-Ridge losing his other daughter- his mother’s namesake - would be devastating and take him out of commission. It’d bring back Taylor (recast her please); Liam would be a single father and Forrester would’ve lost its CEO which would prompt another round of musical chairs that could bring the return of Rick Forrester.
