Mary Worth 1861

Whatever you do, don't call an ambulance to check her out for water in her lungs, or possible brain damage. They might take her to the hospital and who would be there waiting for her? Dr. Kapuht. And as everybody knows, he's a bad doctor.

But who wouldn't be okay, warming up with Mary Worth under matching, rare white mink stoles?

That Charterstone! Lots of towels primly folded and stocked, but no safety fence or staff to clean up the poolside area at closing time.

Thank goodness we're spared Mary's thoroughly soaked and clinging night gown!

I think those are lovely prayer shawls, not towels so conveniently available for those who need them after near drowning.

At least the EMTs need not be disturbed to check on Olive since St. Mary has all under control.

How nice to see that, except for a few drips, Mary's coiffure is springing back into shape so well.

Not only is Olive okay, when Mary herself examines Olive's torso tomorrow, the cyst will be gone. Being rescued by Mary Worth herself comes with all kinds of perks.

Good to see that Mary is using Happy Hobo therapy! My favorite line - Are you okay? - does have special healing powers.

For God sakes Joe - Can you make up your mind????? Is it day or night????

This is the most absurd, entertaining storyline in a long time! KitKat, I love the idea of Olive's cyst being miraculously healed. Karen Moy, make it so!

Wanders, here's a suggestion for the Charterstone jukebox: Drowning in the Sea of Love by Boz Scaggs.

Mr. Allora/Alora/Alhora had better check those towels more often. They seem to have developed a nasty strain of black mold. That's all poor little Olive needs in her lungs along with pool water.

This entire plotline(flower fairies, prophetic dreams, behavior determined by weird vibes) signals a decidedly New Age-y turn in the perspective of Mary Worth... .Not sure it fits her so well. I'm accustomed to her being practical and down to earth. It all started with her visit to that yoga-churning spa/resort in Arizona last year. Next thing you know, she'll be wearing crystals and healing copper headbands and paying $1,000+ for a weekend of aura-reading. . .

I agree with LouiseF. This entire plot line makes me uneasy. And where will it go from here?

1. The cyst miraculously disappears (KitKat's idea).
2. The parents see the error in their ways and don't take Olive back to the hospital.
3. The parents take Olive back to the hospital, where the evil doctor will be revealed through the insight of Olive and the wisdom of Mary.
4. The parents take Olive back to the hospital, where she learns to channel her powers, resulting in a most painful death of the doctor. (My greatest hope...)

After Olive explains her fears, Mary will research Doctor K and find out that he has lost is medical license in ten states and the District of Columbia.

I have an uneasy feeling that Olive, her parents, and Dr. K. don't really exist. Didn't the TV show Dallas have an entire season that was revealed to be some character's dream? (I was in college and didn't own a television, and this was WAY before the intertubes, but I remember hearing something like this.) This entire summer might be Mary's dream.
