Synopsis: Hollyoaks’ far right story came to a rather abrupt end and we’re of a mixed opinion about it and the seeds of Darren’s depression are being swen as Charlie nearly exposes his affair with Nancy; The Young and the Restless is changing heads at Jabot again, changing our tune on Theo and why is Victor interested in Amanda Sinclair; General Hospital was a slow week but there were moments our panel enjoyed including Finn and Chase’s brotherly heart-to-heart and Jason’s emotional reaction to the ramifications of his and Sam’s actions; Days of our Lives has Queen Marlena vs. Princess Gina! Our thoughts on the budding rivalry, Cin goes undercover to get back baby Mickey and why Will isn’t a plot device, not hating Sonny while liking his thing with Evan and Jennifer being used as the audience’s avatar.
