Valentine's Day 2008 in Oakdale was a study in What If?

What if Lily had died and Holden was left to carry on alone?
What if Noah had joined the Navy instead of becoming a filmmaker?
What if Tom and Margo, and Carly and Jack, and Brad and Katie lived in a classic movie?

In the winter of 2008, As The World Turns (along with the rest of the television industry), was in the middle of a writer's strike. That meant that stories already in progress were left spinning their wheels. This was bad. On the other hand, being unable to continue a story did lead to creative, stand alone episodes like the Valentine's Day fantasy. This was good.
