Oakdale Confidential:
An As The World Turns Novel

Wednesday, July 19, 2006


Jennifer Ferrin has left her role as Jennifer on ATWT (as poor Jen expired, Camille-style, from a daytime form on consumption). CBS.com offers a video backstage pass to her last day on the set. (It was shot before Benjamin Hendrickson's (Hal) death, which makes her taking about him even more emotional).

And for those who are asking: What did Jen die of, exactly? Her baby had a blood cancer, and she didn't catch blood cancer from him. So what did she die of?

My theory is, she was at the hospital with Johnny and his blood cancer. She didn't take care of herself, was stressed, didn't eat right, and so her immune system was depressed. Since hospitals are the best place in the world to catch an infection, she caught something opportunistic, was too weak to fight it off, she went into sepsis and died.

That's my theory and I'm sticking with it.
