Soap operas are known for their exposition.
Of course, one of the biggest exposition for the sake of exposition offenders was NBC's late-'90s soap opera Passions.
But no scene in the history of television has featured a better exposition dump than THIS SCENE RIGHT HERE.
Here, Gwen Winthrop is chasing after reporter J.T. Cornell because he has evidence that could expose a years-long secret of hers.
Meanwhile, Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald is chasing after BOTH of them and, well...she lets us know why.
Can you say that again? And maybe a little slower — oh, OK, I guess you don't have time.
I guess I'll just look at it again.
So there's you, Gwen, Gwen's mother, J.T., Ethan, a tabloid, a paternity secret, a betrayal, unrequited love, and also y'all are running through the streets of Rome for no reason?!?!?!
You know what? Never mind.
Gwen! She's after J.T.! She probably wants to get the proof that he has that she and her mother sent the information to the tabloid revealing Ethan's true paternity before J.T. has a chance to show it to Ethan, but I've gotta get the truth so Ethan'll believe that I'm telling the truth that Gwen was actually the one that betrayed him, maybe Ethan will realize that everything I did, I did because I love him.
