SOAP BYTES: When Will Genoa City Drive Michael Baldwin Insane Again? Where is McBam Headed on General Hospital?

Y&R BYTES: Michael (Christian LeBlanc) finally found out that Lauren (Tracey Bregman) has had a gun since February. He’s not happy his wife has been hiding her piece from him. He’s even less pleased that his best friend Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Lauren’s sister Jill (Jess Walton) didn't warn him. 

I won't be the least bit surprised when one day Michael goes back off the deep end. The poor man is having a time of it, trying to balance all the crazy antics of his family, friends, legal clients and enemies. Does anyone wanna place bets on how soon Michael will snap again?

Jill: “Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) clerking at the boutique. That is ridiculous.”

Jill’s (Jess Walton) comment pretty much sums up what I was thinking. Katherine has always meddled in other Genoa City resident’s lives, but boy has she been getting around lately.

Isn’t Moses just the most adorable baby?

Ashley (Eileen Davidson) and Tucker’s (Stephen Nichols) marriage is on the brink. This time they are in trouble because of his revelation that his falling out with Sofia (Julia Pace Mitchell) was fake. Y&R needs to pair Tucker with someone else already.


B&B BYTES: I knew about New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week and L.A. Fashion Week, but until The Bold and the Beautiful, I didn't know there was an Aspen Fashion Week.  Who knew there is such a thing as ski suit couture? The things one learns from soaps!

Bill’s (Don Diamont) plot to send Hope (Kim Matula) screaming through the streets of Aspen naked, as she’s popping pills like Tic Tacs, is falling into place. Ok, she may not be naked. Unfortunately for Hope, the only friendly face she will find in Aspen is Liam's (Scott Clifton).

DAYS BYTES: When I said I missed seeing Will (Chandler Massey) I didn’t mean I wanted to see him sharing screen time with Gabi (Camila Banus).

Lexie (Renee Jones) would love to see the changes in EJ’s (James Scott) life five to 10 years from now. So would I, so NBC better keep this show on the air! I do like how EJ is absolutely confident Nicole’s (Arianne Zucker) baby is his. His self-assurance makes me want to root for him and Nicole to reunite. 


GH BYTES:  I call no fair! How did Port Charles get the new Avengers movie in its theaters when it has only been released internationally? I need to move to Port Charles. Regardless, Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Matt’s (Jason Cook) discussion in front of Avengers' movie posters has to be one of the longest product placements in recent memory (Editor's Note: So what?! Pay them bills, Frank!).

Carly (Laura Wright) ripped Johnny (Brandon Barash) a new one over his betrayal with Kate/Connie (Kelly Sullivan). Now he has to live with the consequences of his decision to drop his carrot down Connie’s rabbit hole.

So Connie and Johnny actually had sex. I was really hoping it was just staged to piss off Sonny. I'm praying they used protection, because I do not want to see Kate pregnant with Johnny’s baby.

Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) slapped the hell out of Heather (Robin Matson)! I’m really enjoying their budding rivalry. That scene was my favorite soap moment of the day.

Sam (Kelly Monaco) and John (Michael Easton) continued to bond, while the betrayal Jason (Steve Burton) is feeling is soothed by Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) compassionate words. There is so much history and emotional understanding in Jason and Elizabeth’s scenes. I’m eating it up with a spoon.!Elizabeth is helping me feel the first twinges of empathy for Jason.

Here’s a question I have about McBam: General Hospital keeps playing up their connection and teasing an unexplainable bond. How long can you tease something like that before you have to actually explain it? At some point are we going to learn Sam and John are the reincarnations of Port Charles' Livvie and Caleb? Does GH really want to go there? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn't.
