Let us consider for a moment the historic events that have impacted the human psyche and imagination with life-changing profundity: Man's first flight ... the moon landing ... the creation of the Internet ... Polyester.
All these pale in comparison to the annual Springfield outdoor cabaret that is the Bauer Fourth of July Barbecue.
Next week, Springfield's biggest social event makes its return. This year is different though, because it is likely the last. With "Guiding Light" leaving the air in September, we can expect a kickass party. And the fact that three familiar faces make their return -- Danny and Michelle Santos, along with Mindy Lewis -- makes this a sorta-kinda must see!
There will almost certainly be plot twists to emerge from the BBQ -- and one of those is a startling revelation for Natalia. Look for things to get really complicated for her, virtually overnight. She's got a medical condition ... and it ain't the kind Phillip has. We'll let you think about it for a second. Yeah, we know where you're going. And it's such a huge mess -- but great drama for "Otalia."
