Where O' where is Ms.
Have any fans out there, besides me, been wondering what has become of
the fiery spitfire that was wreaking havoc on Springfield not so long ago? I
am of course talking about Blake Thorpe Marler, or as Roger used to like to
refer to her as, Chrissy. I can only guess that she's in a bamboo and green
colored room at Cedars with Mrs. Santos as her roommate.
I have some serious questions! What is happening with her? Where are her
children? And most importantly, why did they give her a major storyline only
to drop it and leave her in what we can presume is still a coma for months
Worse than us not seeing her at all is that it seems no one in town is
even asking about her! Harley and Cassie, her good friends havenít even
uttered her name in months. Dinah, half sibling to Kevin, Jason & Clarissa
hasnít mentioned them either, let alone seen them. One would think in the
small town of Springfield that there would be at least a mention of their
names here and there. Regrettably, this has not happened.
Liz Keifer is a phenomenal actress, and I hate to see her with no
airtime. This is especially hard when viewers were anticipating a shocking
conclusion to the Springfield Burns storyline. Unfortunately though, it
looks like we won't get that ending that many of us would like to see. I
guess itís just another ball dropped by the writers, which has this fan
With actors dropping like hot cakes from our screens, I don't understand
why they don't use as many characters as possible in the stories instead of
having the same characters dominate our screens. Call me crazy, but I like
to see a variety of talent on my television.
Blake is a huge part of Springfield history, and sadly, has been left
waiting in the wings for a substantial storyline for some time now.
Personally, if they're (the writers) are going to keep her in a coma
indefinitely, I'd prefer for her to be written off the show. As much as it
would anger me to lose Keifer, it would anger me more to see her lie in a
coma for another 6 months.
