We’re not 100% sure if both the General Hospital writers and Tamara Braun are trying to paint Kim as sympathetic in this Dranco Memory-Mapping Mess, but if they are, it’s not working.
The only thing many of us can feel for Kim (Tamara Braun) is disgust as she teeters on the very edge of sanity and slowly slips into the realm of the delusional. This is certainly not the fault of the uber-talented Braun.

We don’t care if she can relive it all through this body that is not Drew. Franco, aka Dranco, is NOT Drew (in ANY way whatsoever, and that deserves it’s own Soap Hub article) and any logical person would stop calling him such.
But not Kim. She just …continue reading on the next page —>
