Hot Topics (00:51)
Mal Young was fired from The Young & The Restless and replaced with Josh Griffith. Is this a good or bad thing? Also Ingo Rademacher is out on The Bold & the Beautiful while Arianne Zucker is back in on Days!
In a twist we didn’t see coming, Darren is revealed to not be the father of Mandy’s baby. Sort of. With Spina Bifida running in Lukes family, it seems like he’s the most likely father though he convinced Mandy not to pursue the paternity test and instead raise the baby with Darren who will remain none the wiser. Also its a McQueen family Christmas with major twists, reveals and microwaved turkey.
General Hospital (23:22)
We got a chance to sit down with Carolyn Hennesy to talk about all kinds of things. Check it out here. Also, as we predicted, Willow is the birth mother of the baby Brad and Lucas adopted.
The Young & The Restless (30:49)
Reed is back in town for 2 days and has already run over his granny using Charlie’s car. Who will go down with this? Also Ana alliance with Fenmore to get Devon to sign him works like a charm but at the expense of Ana being shut out. Is Devon being too harsh?
The Bold & The Beautiful (43:17)
With Ingo out, will Thorne even get a proper send off? Also. Steffy now wants a sister for Kelly and the rumor mill is on overdrive that Hope’s baby will be ‘swapped’ and Steffy will raise it. Do we want a baby swap?
Days of our Lives (53:13)
Gabi is the most endearingly terrible schemer in Salem. How much longer can she keep winning? Will spirals out without Sonny. At least that’s what the breakdowns say. Can we find something for him to that involves his family? Particularly his daughter? Abigail hits Stefan with Divorce papers and Sarah lashes out at Maggie.
