Casting rumors galore. Mishael Morgan is back? Billy Miller (and a few others) are out at GH? Eva LaRue’s stay will be short lived? Cancellation (fake) news hits Hollyoaks while also announcing that Goldie and Joel are a go and Prince McQueen is leaving.
The walls begin to close in on Breda as the teens plan a trip to her pig farm and almost stumble upon her buried secrets! This leads to her giving Jack the ring belonging to Louis Loveday! Looks like we are finally getting a summer teen adventure story! Laurie gets Sally suspended so he can assume her position, gaining even more power. Nancy decides she can no longer go through with the plan against Laurie.
The Young and the Restless (40:36)
Michelle Stafford is back as Phyllis. Who is this mysterious Chancellor family member with a connection to Adam? Ana feels Devon doesn’t trust her business savvy, Nate gives away Neil’s penthouse to Adam and Cane just won’t leave Lily. We could still be here for Trane, but enough with Traci’s novel.
The Bold and The Beautiful (1:04:40)
Brad Bell has killed off yet another young female character. Pierson Fodé really dodged a bullet as Thomas Forrester is now a certified psycho. The baby secret is the worst kept secret in all of California.
General Hospital (1:11:27)
Cynthia Watros debuts as Nina. Kim and Drew return to Port Charles. Kim wants a baby to replace Oscar and Drew is just… being Drew? Is the lack of story for the character of Drew just a sign that he’s out the door? The boy from Turkey arrives in Port Charles. Who could he be other than Sonny’s fake cousin?
Days of Our Lives (1:32:22)
Stefan recruits Abe to join Dimera Enterprises in a surprising move. Gabi feels threatened by Nicole’s presence at Dimera as Stefan revives Basic Black. Will’s tepid tumor troubles lead to touching tribute for Grandma Caroline. Lots of familiar faces came home to pay their respects. Ciara can’t hide how much she wants to beat Claire’s ass for getting Ben locked up. Hopefully with this story wrapping up soon, we will see more of Ciara independent of Ben.
