* Another example came in a scene involving Franco and Kiki. Kristen Alderson, who originated the role, announced her departure; her final scene was with Roger Howarth, who had worked with Alderson on OneLifeToLive as Todd Manning and his daughter Starr respectively. As they had worked together since she was 6 years old, they were coworkers for the better part of two decades. As such, the dialogue of their last scene, written on the surface as Franco rambling after a dose of LSD, could also be intrepreted as Todd saying goodbye to Starr and in turn, Howarth saying goodbye to Alderson.
