In the end, it went out with a bang, not a whimper. The bang — SPOILER ALERT! — came in the form of a gunshot fired in the general direction of Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and the rest of the remaining “All My Children” cast. The target? Unknown. Maybe we’ll find out if and when the series makes the jump to the web, as promised.
After 41 years on ABC, “All My Children” ended its run with a flourish. In recent weeks, many stars of the show’s past came back for cameos — including Sarah Michelle Gellar, who appeared on Thursday’s penultimate episode.
According to our colleagues at Daytime Confidential, the finale didn’t disappoint:
“After decades of seeing soap operas limp to the finish line in their final weeks, All My Children gave us some of the best episodes we’ve seen in years during the past month.”
