When I started I Believe in the Mystery it was to give Marah and Tony the happy ending they deserved. To do that I had to rewrite a lot of history on Guiding Light. So I figured, why stop now? There are a few things I would have changed about the final episodes and this medium gives me the perfect opportunity to make those changes. When Guiding Light ended it was implied that Shayne and Marina were a couple, something I did NOT like. This also addresses something I should have addressed in I Believe in the Mystery, where Shayne Lewis has been hiding. Shayne and Marah always had a great sibling relationship. So while I built up Marah and Jonathan’s relationship it’s time to being Shayne into the fold. It’s time to reunite the Lewis family.
As a result of this What Matters Most will reunite one of my favorite last minute couples, Dinah and Shayne. Everyone knows how much I loved this couple. Their ending even made my list of Guiding Light blunders. Shayne is no longer Henry’s father, the child that connected him to weak Marina. In my slice of daytime fiction Edmund changed the DNA results to re-establish contact with the Lewis family. Edmund’s hate for Reva was a big part of his character makeup. To find out that Josh and Reva’s grandchild wasn’t their grandchild afterall? Well that would cause pain throughout the ENTIRE Lewis family. So now we have Shayne Lewis and Marina realizing that they were together for the sake of the child and splitting up. Shayne is following his heart, he’s going after Dinah in Europe and will soon be arriving in Springfield….
