After what seemed at times to be much confusion, on December 18th, Erica calls Zach to tell him Myrtle has died. The actress, Eileen H, died in late October, but even as spunky as she was at age 90, she was recurring at best.
Meanwhile, TPTB claim Myrtle's part will be recast and the boardinghouse will live on. Even Leigh Taylor-Young has auditioned.
Riddle me tis If AMC has a tribute at the rebuilt casino, complete with the Fargate Carnival Room, wouldn't be a tremendous stretch to recast the part? I mean, Myrtle's cousin/sister whatever, could come run the boarding house.
NOBODY can walk in and generate the special bond she had with Erica, Zach, and Ryan..
Just my two cents.
