Scott reflected on the "Niktor" week:

I haven’t seen some of the featured shows since we shot them. I’m especially eager to see the very early episode in which Nikki enters the Newman Ranch for the very first time!

Everyone has time to relish the classic episodes because of COVID-19 quarantine. Thomas Scott is self-isolating with her husband, veteran soap producer Ed Scott, and a close friend. 

The time at home has given MTS a chance to revisit her 2003 thriller, The Paradise Virus. She noted:

When we shot it, on an island in Turks and Caicos, (it was far from the glamorous location one would assume,) the premise seemed so far-fetched, we basically treated it as science fiction. Fast forward eighteen years later and the entire world is living it. I certainly have gained newfound respect for the script, written by Peter Layton.

What about her eagerly-anticipated memoir, Always Young and Restless: My Life On and Off America's #1 Daytime Drama

Its release date has been pushed, but MTS isn't too sad. Why? She dished:

In spite of editing the manuscript several times, I am still finding things that need tweaking. Due to delays we can thank corona for, the new release date is August 18, 2020.
