So sad. This was a great plot that drove intense story still in 1989 when
Roger came back to town and Holly tried to kill him as he slept in a
hospital bed. This is the "Guiding Light" I will always remember. I have no
idea what this show is that is getting cancelled that calls itself "Guiding
Light" but I hope in the final 5 months they bring back characters like
Holly, Fletcher, Roxie and someway/somehow Harley. The writers have 5
months to make the end count. I hope they find a way to do so.

I never saw this episode. I was much too young at the time. But I do
remember in 1989 this was STILL fueling storylines 10 years after it
happened when Holly almost suffocated Roger as he lay sleeping in a
hospital bed. This show used to be such an great program with much more
intelligent storytelling. It now is a hollow shell of what it once was.

since about 1996. some of the acting was a little less then best, but still
good. roger seems to be stumble through some words when he questions about
ed and breathin a little rough.. lol

I forgot all about Roger Thorpe, he went from nice guy to psycho/bad guy
quite suddenly. This was a really good story too. BUT didn't this go to
trial at some point? I'd love to see that too.

Author robbygtx32 (5 years)
Roger and Holly were the best couple in soap history. Nobody did
dysfunction better than Michael Zalsow and Maureen Garrett. Perhaps if GL
wrote stories like this today, they'd be on past 9/18/09.

@BabyCarlyle Woh, calm down there. He said "not always." He was just
pointing out that in the real world everything is grey, not black and white
like a soap opera. A lot of people don't realize that it's not only women
who have to worry about rape, but men too! And not only about being raped,
but about accidentally "going too far" as Arenzoj said and becoming a
rapist. I've had bfs that after they found out I was a rape victim were
afraid to even touch me. It completely ruined sex with them.

"I'm your husband! I have certain rights!" Man, Michael Zaslow was SCARY in
this scene.

Author eriklovessoaps (5 years)
This is the first time I've seen this. Michael Zaslow was a really good
actor. As far as the rape went, I've read it called marital rape, but she
was about to leave him for Ed. I assume Holly divorced Roger's ass soon
after. For all intents and purposes, wasn't the marriage over? I guess this
subject came up when people wondered if Olivia and Jeffery could get
together. With this rape, they loved each other before the crime making it
confusing. They tried to do the opposite with Olivia.

You know, I've watch over a dozen GL clips on YouTube concerning various
characters and issues,a nd almost every comment board has a post about how
bad teh show much better the other shows are. So I guess I'm
asking, what is so bad about the GL today? People talking about how it'll
probably go off the air, and how bad the storylne is. , but I check out
Y&R, and ATWT, and AMC, and what's the big difference? GL has lasted over
70 years...I hope it's around to see 100..

Author ronaldhaynie (2 years)
RIP Michael Zaslow. And I say that with tears of joy in my eyes. I must
make a vlog about the humility of this man, offstage. A phenomenal actor, a
true humanitarian; and his funeral is one I should have attended. Mr.
Zaslow was kind enough to speak with his casting lady, Barbara Harter then
in 1979, to award me with a small background role, all because of a
telephone conversation we had. A beautiful blessing I won't forget, making
me the actor I am today. God rest you Mr. Zaslow...Ronald Haynie

Author Bigcitytaken (3 years)
hmmmmm is it wrong that this clip got me aroused??

Author TVDude78 (1 year)
It seems like 1979 was a big time for rape storylines on soaps. Off hand
Roger raped Holly on GL, Luke raped Laura on GH and Nikki almost got raped
by her father on Y&R. The Nikki scene was similar to this when her father
backed her up against a cabinet and she knocked off a glass figurine then
he ran her into the back bedroom. She was holding the door as her father
beat on it screaming for her to let him in. She killed him by bashing his
brains out with a lamp after he ripped her clothes off.

didn't she go blind?

Outstandingly acted scene controversial topic if they had the media outlets
they have today the show would have been revered even more for approaching
this hidden troubled family topic GL deserves major credit for tackling
this social topic
