Happy Independence Day from the TV Source crew! In this Week in Soaps episode, we’re discussing the high-profile exits of Eileen Davidson, Stephen Nichols and Chloe Lanier from their respective soaps; Y&R’s ghost of JT derailing the abuse storyline we once praised and DAYS’ Ciara and Ben has fans buzzing both good and bad. All that and more in the new episode of the TV Source podcast!
Episode Taped: July 1, 2018
The headlines: Eileen Davidson quits The Young and the Restless! Stacy Haiduk (ex-Patty, Y&R) is Days of our Lives’ new Kristen DiMera! Stephen Nichols out as DAYS’ Patch; Chloe Lanier quits General Hospital.
The Young and the Restless: Jack’s chasing his Chancellor past as the ghost of JT haunts Victoria, Phyllis, Sharon and Nikki. Our hosts express disappointment with the direction of the JT story, as the potential to showcase an abuse survivor rebuilding her life has been non-existent.
Days of our Lives: Gabi Hernandez is a hurricane in the making and Salem, specifically Abby and Stefan, need to watch out. And as the summer of Cin heats up fans online so does the criticism. Is DAYS weighing Ben’s sins of murder to be less than Chase’s sexual assault on Ciara? Also: what does the future hold for Tripp and Ciara?
