Speak Out: Where's Henry?
CBS Soaps In Depth, October 23, 2001
Jill Schafer from St. Paul, MN, is one of the many ATWT fans wondering what happened to Henry. "The last we saw of him, he still was stranded on the island and had just found the multi-million dollar diamond," she writes. "Oakdale is just not the same without his dry sense of humor! But if I know Henry, he's probably already come up with a plan to get off that island, sell the diamond, and wreak havoc on the people who wronged him!" Should someone warn Katie?
Guess what, that's me! In case you're curious about how the soap mags edit fan letters, here's what I actually wrote:
I am one
of the many ATWT fans screaming “Where is Henry?!”
The last we saw of him he was stranded on “Simon’s Island” with
the hermit Cooley and had just found the multi-million dollar diamond.
Katie and Simon left him without a second thought.
There was talk one day of calling the Coast Guard, but since they ran off
to Malta to help Lily we don’t know if that ever happened.
Poor Henry is left stuck in the sand.
But if I know Henry, he won’t be there for long.
He’s probably already come up with a plan to get off that island, sell
the diamond, and wreak havoc on Oakdale and the people who wronged him!
Oakdale is just not the same without our Henry. We need his dry sense of humor, his quick wit and devious plans. There’s a lot of drama in Oakdale right now, which is expected and even welcomed in a soap opera, but we need a little humor to balance this out. And no one brings humor to the show better than Trent Dawson’s Henry!
It's not too late, Henry fans, keep writing letters. Someone is listening!
