Soap twitter erupted over a tweet about potentially recasting Billy Flynn as Morgan Corinthos. We tell you why this isn’t news. Alice Hunter ends her run on the Young and the Restless, but are we really that surprised? We say goodbye to two soap icons.
Tom/Harley/Peri made a go at being a throuple but all fell apart just as quickly as it came together. Lily continues to self-harm and spirals when Prince returns to the village. Scott’s big story is… he’s becoming a drag queen! Liam refuses to give up on Mercedes and will do anything to have her back. Including planting sugar booger in her purse!
Everything came together this week as the town figured out Ryan is alive and on the run with Ava. We talk about this shows refusal to let women be their own saviors.
The Bold and the Beautiful
Hope gave up on the idea of a wife swap but Liam is very curious about this idea. Steffy is overloaded as a single mom and businesswoman like she was warned Flo is baby Phoebe’s birth mom and Wyatt’s high school girlfriend.
Days of Our Lives
Diana is on the loose and She wants Marlena gone! Who would vote an amnesiac into mayoral office? Sheila is the only smart person in town as some townsfolk seem to actually go MAGA-light. Ben goes to work for Stefan again and Ciara does her best to get over her heroic hunk by harboring an illegal in her loft. At least for a little before Claire snitches on everyone to blow the whole plan up!
