Days will air Caroline Brady’s funeral next year with returns from Sami, Carrie, Austin and maybe more. Will we see more Brady’s come back? Also Emmerdale and Hollyoaks are both tackling #MeToo storylines.
Imran’s story reaches a climax with him attacking Ste and his abuse coming to light. He’s sent off to a treatment facility for young offenders. Meanwhile James and Romeo were beginning to bond until Mac stepped in and destroyed it all with his lies and mind games.
The Young and the Restless (17:50)
Summer sets off for Dubai and a job she’s not qualified for. Everyone’s reaction to Lola being a virgin is a bit much. Ana Hamilton is back in town to help her brother while Cane and Nate continue berating him. Bryton James continues to excel when the writers remember he’s there.
The Bold and the Beautiful (34:50)
Taylor arrives back in Los Angeles and is somehow both awful and great at the same time. Why are women always made to look completely insane? Now everyone knows she shot Bill.
General Hospital (39:50)
Oscar is choosing to fight for his health but who really cares anymore? Kiki is found murdered and the only person who showed up for their scenes was Maura THE West. Why was everyone else daydreaming? And why the character of Jordan has been terribly written from her inception.
Days of our Lives (55:40)
Ted Laurent stumbles back into town with a proposition for Hope. Prince Leo also returns to wreak havoc on Will and Sonny. Kate Mansi is also back and brought with her an energy that the character of Abigail hasn’t had in awhile. Ciara and Ben finally kissed! Ciara promptly told him she didn’t want a scrub and 5 minutes later, he has a job and a mansion to live in.
