Now that Alistair has been shot on PASSIONS, I hope he's really and truly dead this time. Not just because he was an awful and sick person who went out of his way to cause pain for his "loved ones," but because PASSIONS has seriously overused the whole "back from the dead" plot. That said, I had a laugh when a corpse — affected by the "evil" Tabitha keeps predicting is coming to Harmony — suddenly sat up on his gurney and chatted with an alarmed Tabitha and Kay at the hospital ... about food, no less. This was a fun inside jab at how often characters do turn up alive on the show, and if we see more talkative zombies, perhaps this is a cliché I'd be able to get behind.
