SOAP BYTES: Is Sharon the Grim Reaper on Young and Restless? Are Liam and Hope Really over on Bold and Beautiful?



GH BYTES: Ewen (Nathin Butler) tried to convince Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) she was safe with him, but she didn’t believe him.

Jason (Steve Burton) was at Liz's when Patrick (Jason Thompson) woke up, and grilled him about Ewen. When Elizabeth asked why he’d help “that monster” Jerry, Ewen responded that he was forced into it. 

Lulu (Julie Marie Berman) arrived at the police station to tell Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) she wanted to be with him.

In Vegas, Michael (Chad Duell) went all protective brother and beat Trey (Erik Valdez) to a pulp. Like father, like son. Kristina (Linsey Morgan) went spastic.

Dante popped up at Elizabeth’s, where Jason recounted all the reasons why he suspects Ewen of working with Jerry (Sebastian Roche).

I loved Starr’s mention of Todd (Roger Howarth) and Victor’s (Trevor St. John) war. I really hope all these mentions of Victor evolve into something after January 1.

I have over 15 episodes of GH on my DVR that I should watch, but I just can't get into it.

I was really looking forward to the war between Todd and Victor. Sigh.

What show is this? I started out with a heading that appears to be about Young and Restless, so now I am lost.

I see the photo of Sharon on that GC web news site with the "Newman"s Grim Reaper" caption and can't help thinking it should actually be a picture of MAB and substitute "The Young and the Restless" for "Newman's". But that's me... Innocent

yojoromo4469 ... I know what you mean. Sometimes these threads are multi-topic so the comments are all over the place. But when they are not and somehow the comments start to get off topic altogether then it can get confusing. But this one did have two topics in the heading.

Y&R-just really don't know what to say about this show.I'm still watching but FF thru Victor,and may add Ronan to that.

B&B-haven't watched it in the last 2 days.I just read the recaps.Rick is not Rick anymore.He has become JR from AMC.

I really am enjoying Days,I like the way they are setting up the future stories,using the vets and the younger crowd.The stories are flowing better,and not a lot of repetition.I totally like the way Thurs that Adrienne,Sonny's mom,got involved.Missteps at the start of romances are a soap staple.Go WilSon,but I'm loving Brian also.

"Y & R" is just a mess - that's all I can say without going into detail...

Did anyone notice that Sharon had Kyle's drivers' license in her possession and that MAB retconned his birth date to the year 1990?? Ugh - such awful, awful storytelling since he was a pre-teen when his mother Diane Jenkins was offed just last August 2011...

Also, what 22 y-o kid sits down and pours themselves a glass of scotch and drinks with their dad - really, MAB???

So glad you are history - now we just need to get through about 6 more weeks of the drek you have created - where's that scotch?!?

SoapByets is almost always about all four of the soaps, so the comments are about all shows.

What's wrong with that? He's of age, why can't he have a drink with dear old dad? It was later in the day, so?

Bartman202 ... I get your consternation here but I don't have a problem with the driver license nor with the Scotch drinking. The license is appropriate and I know I was drinking Scotch (straight up) at that age. We just have to accept that Kyle is now much older than he used to be.

I LMAO when the author of Sharon's article said she probably ran out of the room and looked up the big words!

What kills me isn't the lack of storyline continuity regarding Kyle (soaps have been doing that for years). What kills me is how is "Christian" surviving without his anti-rejection meds. He'd be dead sooner rather than later since he had a heart transplant -- Colleen's (one of the worst storylines EVER!!!). TPTB could at least try to remember what has happened under his/her own regime. Is VN the new Chuck Norris? [A python bit Victor Newman and it died a painful excruciating death 5 days later]. I love Eric Braeden and Victor Newman but this is ridiculous!!!

robin316... I keep saying that Victor should remember why he still lives and leave his Abbott vendetta (mainly Jack and Billy) behind. Also, he shouldn't be able to do anything he's been doing to his body considering the care and massive medications needed to counter his various major ailments. And ... have you ever noticed any major scars when we've been forced to see him bare chested?

My husband said that too,"why doesn't he have the zipper?"
Very unrealistic. But we have MAB to thank for that bit of farce. I don't know that the "heart medication" is the anti-rejection or the regular heart pill. You get a few after heart surgery.

"I LMAO when the author of Sharon's article said she probably ran out of the room and looked up the big words"

Thank you for the laugh. I can picture her sliding her finger across the paper and sounding out the big words.
Wonder if she's more like her character than we know.
