SOAP BYTES: Austin Says Goodbye to Kate on Days of Our Lives; Lulu Wants Patrick to Detox on General Hospital!By Luke Kerr on July 25, 2012
Y&R BYTES: Cane (Daniel Goddard) received confirmation his father was still in Australia, much to Lily’s (Christel Khalil) relief. However, the mystery surrounding what happened to his mother’s money still has Cane searching for answers. He asked Kevin for help.
Carmine (Marco Dapper) wanted to see if Kevin (Greg Rikaart) would help him get his job back at Gloworm. Abby (Marcy Rylan) convinced him to let her take a stab at convincing Gloria (Judith Chapman) to rehire him. Carmine went against Abby’s advice and tried his luck with Kevin.
Abby was not happy when she overheard Ashley (Eileen Davidson) contemplating letting Tucker (Stephen Nichols) back into her life, yet not being able to forgive her own daughter. READ MORE
SOAP BYTES: Does Sami Love Lucas on Days of Our Lives? Phyllis Clings to Her Delusions on The Young and the RestlessBy Luke Kerr on July 24, 2012
DAYS BYTES: Rafe (Galen Gering) arrived at the DiMera mansion and slapped a pair of handcuffs on EJ (James Scott). Roman (Josh Taylor) revealed, while Sami (Alison Sweeney) was standing there, that EJ isn’t Stefano’s (Joseph Mascolo) son. Sami then hauled off and socked EJ.
Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) issued another ultimatum to Sami. He told her he won’t go down "this road" again, saying it was him or EJ. We all know how Sami gets when faced with an ultimatum. READ MORE
SOAP BYTES: General Hospital Needs to Sell "Crazy Calling" Ringtones; Lucas Holds The Key to the DiMera Empire on Days of Our Lives!By Luke Kerr on July 19, 2012
GH BYTES: My favorite soap moment on Wednesday was hearing Todd’s (Roger Howarth) ringtone for Heather crying out, “Crazy calling! Crazy Calling!” I still haven’t found my all-time most desired ringtone–the one used by CTU’s phones on Fox’s 24–so I might have to settle for getting a copy of “Crazy calling! Crazy calling!”
Now there’s a way General Hospital could earn money to pad its budget, sell ringtones! Family Guy, The Simpsons and many other TV series have made lots of money by turning their quotes into ringtones. Why can’t GH do the same?
People spend a lot of money on ringtones . I know I'd pay a buck or two for a Liason,Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot) or Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) ringtone! I'm sure JaSam fans would do the same for a tone featuring their fave couple. Come on, ABC, make it happen!
Todd to Heather (Robin Mattson): “I’d give anything to see you locked in a room with Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser).”’
Todd to Carly: “Blair and her manwhore are making sweet love in their hotel room, probably right now.” READ MORE
GH BYTES: The mere mention of Jack Manning (Andrew Trischitta) sent shivers of horror down my spine, because I couldn’t help imagining the awfulness of Trischitta ending up in scenes opposite Haley Pullos’ Molly. May it never happen.
I appreciate that General Hospital uses a variety of sets, but for some reason the impact of Kate (Kelly Sullivan) and Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) conversation about her DID, lost child and emotional state just doesn’t pack as big of a punch when a bunch of coffee bean bags are in the background.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Anne Robinson had popped up from behind one of those bags and told Kate “You are the weakest link, goodbye!”? READ MORE
SOAP BYTES: Karen Comes Out to Bill on The Bold and the Beautiful; Michael Still Needs Ex-Lax Chewables on General HospitalBy Luke Kerr on July 03, 2012
Ashley to Tucker (Stephen Nichols): “My little girl is fine and she’s coming home. And then I’m going to kill her.”
I’ve read how some Y&R fans aren’t liking Abby’s fake kidnapping story. However, I’m enjoying it immensely. It’s the bright spot on Y&R. I wasn’t a fan of Carmine (Marco Dapper) and Abby at first, but I’m a sucker for two people who loathe one another being thrown together. I'm amused by Carmine needling Abby and vice versa. I actually wish the storyline wasn’t nearing its end.
SOAP BYTES: Lexie Gives up The Ghost on Days of Our Lives; Skeletons Pop Out of Phyllis’ Closet on The Young and the RestlessBy Luke Kerr on June 20, 2012
Y&R BYTES: Daniel (Michael Graziadei) demanded to know what Daisy (Yvonne Zima) was talking about regarding his mother. He asked Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) if she tried to run down Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell). When in doubt deny, deny, deny; that is exactly what Phyllis did. Her past was coming back to haunt her, and she desperately wanted to stuff the skeletons back in the closet.
When Daniel pressed his mother, Phyllis finally admitted she rented the car Daisy was referring to. Even though she admitted hitting them, she maintained what happened was different from the eye witness accounts reported. As Phyllis recounted her version, we were treated to flashbacks of Paul and Cricket canoodling beneath the stars and later being hit by the car.
