SOAP BYTES: Marry Poppins, Promises Kept and DeVanity’s Shocking Season 2 Finale

GH BYTES: Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) promised Robin (Kimberly McCullough) she’d take care of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Emma. Now she’s going to keep that promise. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a medical degree to figure out where this is headed.

Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Mac Scorpio (John J. York) reminded everyone of the power of brotherly love. I’m blaming the multiple Kleenex boxes I’m going through on my allergies. Yeah, that’s it. Allergies.

Port Charles just won’t be the same without Robin and Kimberly McCullough.

As far as I’m concerned, Jason Thompson has locked up his 2013 Emmy nomination.

Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens was right; we’re seeing way more shirtless soap hunks on General Hospital with Frank Valentini in charge. He’s definitely working his way through his  hunk checklist.

Can Sonny (Maurice Bernard) and Kate (Kelly Sullivan) be fixed? Nope.

Where in the world are Todd (Roger Howarth) and Blair Manning? (Kassie DePaiva)? Epiphany called them on yesterday’s episode. The Todd I know would have a jet fired up and they’d have winged their way to Port Charles immediately. The flight from Llanview, PA. to Port Charles, NY. couldn’t take more than an hour. We’ve seen much more time than that transpire onscreen. 


DAYS BYTES:  Come on, give Lexi (Renee Jones) some teeth and let her embrace her inner DiMera! Yes you can!

So John (Drake Hogestyn) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) are having flashbacks of humping like Thumper and Flower behind a tree stump? Is there something in the water in Alamania?

Hope sure is applying lip gloss/lipstick and powdering her nose a lot lately.

Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) marriage certificate with Rafe (Galen Gering) is still good for something, emergency babysitting.  I do appreciate that Rafe is willing to step up for Sami’s kids, no matter what.

Should Rafe give Sami another chance?

Let’s make bets about how long it will take before a third person finds out about Nicole’s (Arianne Zucker) pregnancy? I say less than two weeks.


DeVanity BYTES: I interrupt this column to encourage everyone to visit to watch the #MustSee second season finale of “The Web’s Best Soap Opera,” DeVanity.

As I said on Twitter:

“The S2 finale of @DeVanitysoap served up #JustDesserts, #SweetRevenge & a #DeliciousCliffhanger"

Kyle Lowder’s Andrew Regis provided one of the episode's most shocking surprises. And trust me, that is saying something.


B&B BYTES: Hope’s (Kim Matula) famous last words, “There is nothing Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) can do to stop us.” I think Steffy’s track record has proven she’s very capable of stopping them.

I always enjoy Stephanie (Susan Flannery) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) scenes, but I much prefer when the topic of conversation is Forrester Creations, not the kiddos.

Brooke: “You’re such a big believer in the sanctity of marriage.”

Stephanie: “Yes, I was. Until you came along.”

I love how the moment Stephanie finds out Hope plans to sleep with Liam tonight; she rushes out of Forrester Creations.  The Stephanie Forrester emergency beacon has been activated!

Does anyone dish out a guilt trip better than Stephanie? 

Remember when Steffy targeted men because of a scheme? I can’t believe I’m actually beginning to believe she might have true feelings for Liam.

Ridge (Ronn Moss): “What the hell happened to abstinence?” 


Y&R BYTES:  We need more Beth Maitland (Traci) and Tricia Cast (Nina). That is all.

Mary Poppins believed a spoon full of a sugar can help the medicine go down; well I firmly believe that a spoon full of chemistry can help a storyline go down. Michael Muhney (Adam) and Sharon Case’s (Sharon) chemistry proves this for me.

Did Adam really give up on himself?

I’m sure there are a lot of people who love Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) as a couple, but I still prefer her with Jack (Peter Bergman).

He may be the son of Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), but there is nothing the least bit appealing about Ricky (Peter Porte).

Victor (Eric Braeden) vs. Victoria (Amelia Heinle) over a cosmetics company. Same story, 100th verse.
