In the TV Source Podcast’s new Week in Soaps episode for May 27-31, 2019: Ste pledges his allegiance to the far right on Hollyoaks; We move The Bold and the Beautiful to recurring; Neil’s will is read on The Young and the Restless; Jax is back and in Nina’s orbit on General Hospital; Eve sets out to frame Ben on Days of Our Lives.
Taped: June 2, 2019
Producer: Johnathon K.
Bryton James celebrates 15th anniversary at YR with an interview with TVSource. Y&R’s Changing of the Guard interview offers insight in the face of outrage. Hollyoaks takes home Best Soap at British Soap Awards as well as Best Male Dramatic Performance, Best Actor, Best Villain!
Liam pushes Grace and Farrah apart, making Farrah leave the village. At least she’s safe from the far right group that comes out of the shadows and is open about who they are with Ste and the village. Nancy is working with Sienna to corner Laurie all while turning her friends and family against her! Harry has a girlfriend. Is this a classic soap turning a gay boy bisexual so he can have a baby?
The Bold and the Beautiful (57:10)
The baby secret is becoming the worst kept secret in LA. Flo and Wyatt have an uneventful love scene. In an effort to spare Johnathon’s sanity, this segment will be moved to monthly updates.
The Young and the Restless (59:58)
The reading of Neil’s will brought together family and friends for some touching scenes. Nitpicks aside. We even saw Devon and Elena bonding more.
General Hospital (1:18:08)
The character of Margaux seems to get dumber and dumber. Is this the show’s attempt to write off Elizabeth Hendricks as she goes back to YR? She’s in Shiloh’s Trust after willingly giving up information on the crime she committed and is fully backing DOD. Jax is back and bought out Crimson which puts him right back into Nina’s orbit. Sam and Jason get the pledges back.
Days of Our Lives (1:33:08)
Eve’s on a mission to get Ben under the jail. Could this have been her goal all along to get into power to avenge her daughter? Jack doesn’t seem too impressed about it and kind of seemed worried?Drunk Maggie is wildin’ out and saw unmasked Kristen! How much fun is this story throwing back to the Kristen vs Laura Horton days? Lots of people are calling out Ciara for having no personality now, but didn’t we kind of say this before?
