B&B BYTES: Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down) and Owen’s (Brandon Beemer) relationship truly is magical. Owen’s laying down the law/declaration of commitment to her was classic Jowen. Even if we all know she wears the pants and he wears the Speedos in that relationship! Damn I’m going to miss this couple.
Even though Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) is a slime ball and Liam has the spine of a wet noodle, they are my favorite father/son duo on soaps at the moment.
So after months of protecting her virtue, Hope (Kim Matula) is racing to jump Liam’s (Scott Clifton) bones? I think I’m suffering from whiplash. Shouldn’t making love to the man you want to spend your life with be about their relationship and not a mad dash to cut Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) off at the pass? It doesn't say much about the strength of their relationship that Liam and Hope are so worried about Steffy.
DAYS BYTES: Poor Sami (Alison Sweeney), she’s really trying with Will (Chandler Massey), but she just can’t connect with her son.
Sami to Will: “You are my son and Will Horton I’m not going to lose you too. I just want to be your mom again.”
What does Ian (Ian Buchanan) have planned for Will?
Does anyone really believe that Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and John (Drake Hogestyn) are going to get out of Alamania any time soon? Fourteen days in soap time is basically the next three TV seasons. As slow as Days of Our Lives is moving at the moment, at earliest, Hope and John won’t get out of the country until sometime in April 2015.
“Watch your back.” No truer words were uttered in the episode. Hopefully, John listens to the advice.
Kate (Lauren Koslow) found out Sami has been spying on her. Here’s hoping this revelation reboots Kate vs. Sami.
It’s cute how Brady (Eric Martsolf) always gets a giant chip on his shoulder after being hurt by a woman. Granted, he has good reason to protect his heart, but Martsolf plays wounded so well.
Hello Lucas (Bryan Datillo)! Get your ass back to Salem, your son (and fans) needs you!
GH BYTES: Welcome back to Port Charles, Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), you’ve been sorely missed. Bravo to Rogers and Finola Hughes (Anna) for their heartbreaking performances. The Robin (Kimberly McCullough) flashbacks this week are killing me.
Thank you Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) for being Patrick’s (Jason Thompson) rock.
Is Kate Howard (Kelly Sullivan) on her way to becoming General Hospital’s version of One Life to Live’s Mad Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell)? The last few episodes have me wondering when we’ll see Kate throwing people off rooftops.
Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) to Ewen (Nathin Butler): “Spencer men are nothing, if not resourceful.”
Poor Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson), the pain she’s going to suffer from the loss of Hope and Cole (Van Hughes) will be unbearable. Can Michael (Chad Duell) provide the emotional salve she needs? Speaking of Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly's (Laura Wright) son, why is he beating himself up so much over failing Starr? I realize that being on the scene of such a terrible accident has left an impact on him, but it’s not like he made a blood oath. He did his best. The universe just wasn’t on his side.
So Jason (Steve Burton) has been saved by a ghost’s protocol. Hopefully, he’s worthy of the second chance Robin (Kimberly McCullough) sacrificed herself for.
Y&R BYTES: When I first started watching The Young and the Restless, I called it the fine wine of soaps. It was a show to savor. Today it is the mouthwash of soaps. It still contains alcohol, but you have to consume large quantities to get a buzz. For example, what is the least bit satisfying about this dialogue between Victor (Eric Braeden) and Genevieve (Genie Francis)?
Victor: “I don’t want you eaten alive.”
Genevieve: “By you?”
Victor: “Is that a request?”
Genevieve: “That depends.”
Victor: “On what?”
Genevieve: “Your experience and expertise.”
What is it about controlling cosmetic companies that makes everyone in Genoa City tingle like a Pop Rocks explosion?
Darnell Williams’ Sarge has been in Genoa City for a bit now. What do you think of the character?
