FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS


A tribute to the unsung heroine of Saved by the Bell. She's a motorcycle enthusiast, a lover of big hair, and she has the power to disappear without notice. Tori Scott, this one's for you!


While browsing through my Twitter feed yesterday, I saw a link with the following warning: "Don't go to Bayside High. You'll never been seen or heard from again". My spider sense was tingling! What could this be? See for yourself:


Pretty amazing, right? Go ahead and follow @drmistercody (Cody Johnston), as he and his Tumblr are awesome. 



Of course, I was hoping it was going to be something in regards to Tori Scott, Zack's tough girl love interest from half of the final season. Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen refused to return amidst a contract dispute, but would later have a change of heart. This left poor Leanna Creel (one of the triplets from The Parent Trap III and The Parent Trap: Hawaiian Honeymoon!) written off without explanation. 



In real life, it turns out Leanna Creel is a pretty major lesbian. Good for her! Was her SBTB character's constant leather jacket / surly demeanor strange foreshadowing? We may never know. But one thing's for sure, Tori Scott will always be my homegirl. Wherever she is!



While it's not closure to Tori's story, we can at least take comfort in knowing that we'll always have Lisa. Lark Voorhees may be up-with-Jehovah now, but back in the day she was Bayside's reigning queen of style. Thanks, ladies.
