SOAP BYTES: Old Times For Lumi vs. Kate, Cherries (Possibly) Popped, Fake Sons and Not-So-Smilin' Jack

GH BYTES: Isn’t it great that Anna (Finola Hughes) and Mac (John J. York) don’t trust Holly (Emma Samms) as far as they can throw her? I don’t like the idea of even a fake insta-son for Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), because it’s taking him away from Port Charles, but we’ll see how this plays out.

Holly said it: “There are so many holes in this plan.”

Luke (Anthony Geary) tried to convince Ethan (Nathan Parsons) it’s all about the chase. Let the adventure begin!

What do you think of Todd (Roger Howarth) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) chemistry? Todd staying at Metro Court is bound to stir things up; isn't it? Plus, Todd and Carly conspiring in blue scrubs was hilarious.

While we’re on the topic of chemistry, not seeing any between Starr (Kristen Alderson) and Michael (Chad Duell). On paper their respective family histories make them ideal, but so far I’ve found them to be a bit of a slow burn. Of course, I may be getting the cart far ahead of the horse. Starr did just lose her daughter and the man she loved.

I wasn’t a fan of Tomas (Ted King) and Blair (Kassie DePaiva) on One Life to Live. However, considering King has played characters on both OLTL and General Hospital, I find it curious they are referring to King’s OLTL character and not Lorenzo Alcazar.  I’m really hoping Lorenzo and Tomas end up being the one-and-the-same, because that would hopefully mean the return of Skye Chandler Quartermaine (Robin Christopher).

Since we're on things I'm hopeful for, I would love it if Roger Howarth being put on contract means we might one day get a resolution to Victor’s (Trevor St. John) return from the dead at the end of the OLTL finale.

So Jason (Steve Burton) is still Carly’s “someone.” Hmmmmm.


Y&R BYTES: Does anyone believe Daisy (Yvonne Zima) is really a mastermind in training? Granted, she’s had the luck of the Irish lately, but come on! No soap villain can always stay on top, not even Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). I’m confident Daisy will one day get what’s coming to her.

Peter Bergman is really throwing himself into this paralysis storyline. The nuance of his performances just sucks you right into Jack’s struggle. Dug Jack calling Genaura (Genie Francis) out on the carpet about Beauty of Nature. Go Jack!

Jack: “I hope Beauty of Nature keeps you warm at night. I’m done with you.”

Run Lauren (Tracey Bregman), take your baby and run like the wind!

Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson): “What’s going on?”

Phyllis (Michelle Stafford): “We’re taking Daisy down.”


B&B BYTES: Did Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Kim Matula) FINALLY do it? I just hope their dialogue wasn’t a red herring. Only time will tell, I guess.

As Liam began to lower the strap on Hope’s teddy, I totally expected to hear a Kenny G-style saxophone. I wasn't disappointed.

Steffy is (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is having hot-flash memories of her time with Liam.

Best quote of the day came from Taylor (Hunter Tylo) about Brooke's (Katherine Kelly Lang) gloating: “Seriously, tonight? Am I the only one that finds it the least bit disturbing that she even knows in the first place, and then is going around bragging about it?” No Taylor, we’re as disturbed by this as you are.

Ridge (Ronn Moss): “If Hope has talked herself into something she isn’t ready for, it’s going to backfire.” Who knew Ridge could actually come up with something relatively intelligent to say?

I am looking forward to the day when Hope's sex life isn't on everyone's mind.


DAYS BYTES: Bo (Peter Reckell) and Roman (Josh Taylor) caught a Brady beat down.

I wonder how long it will take for Sami (Alison Sweeney) to realize Kate (Lauren Koslow) knows she was a mole? .

Lucas (Bryan Datillo) to Kate:" The more things change, the more they stay the same, mom.”

You've got that right, Lucas.

Awkward is the perfect word to describe Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Dr. Hairy Chest’s (Shawn Christian) past relationship. So the question is, why is DAYS revisiting that storyline? I suppose it's better than him spending time with Nicole (Arianne Zucker).

Ok, I admit it, i’m loving the blue walls and gold accents of John (Drake Hogestyn) and Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) Alamanian bedroom. So refreshing that it isn’t purple.

Do you believe that John would really go behind Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) back for something as important as him continuing to be an undercover agent?
