SOAP BYTES: Marlena Goes Hood on Sami and Carrie on Days of Our Lives; Liason Remembers Jake on General Hospital!By Luke Kerr on March 22, 2012
Y&R BYTES: When Jamey Giddens said on our recent podcast that The Young and the Restless was chemistry-testing Ricky (Peter Porte) and Daisy (Yvonne Zima), I wanted to bury my head in the sand. However, there was no escaping their scenes on Wednesday. Can someone please explain to me what appeal such a pairing might hold?
SOAP BYTES: Jill’s Japanese Adventure on The Young and the Restless; Sami’s Confession on Days of Our LivesBy Luke Kerr on March 20, 2012
Y&R BYTES: Where is Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) when you need her? She should be in Japan to take out Genaura (Genie Francis) in an epic catfight that results in those thin, white walls crashing down around everyone.
Nikki’s jealousy is so much fun to watch. It's obvious Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) is a bit tired of Nikki and Victor's (Eric Braeden) back and forth.
Katherine: “You ran. He buried his head in the sands of business, any distraction will do. Why don’t the two of you, one day, just sit down and stare at each other long enough to come up with some solution to make this relationship work. Make it stick!”
DAYS BYTES: EJ (James Scott) sure looked smug and for a bit it was almost as if Will (Chandler Massey) didn’t give a flying flip what EJ thought.
Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) to EJ: “Save your breath, Elvis. You’re not Will’s boss any more, effective immediately.”
In the end, Will chose to keep working for EJ. That has to piss off Lucas. It might also get him closer to the truth about Will’s secret.
GH BYTES: The heartbreaking performances on General Hospital continue. At this rate I’m going to need to invest in Kleenex stock. John J. York (Mac), Finola Hughes (Anna) and especially Jason Thompson (Patrick) continue to deliver emotional material. Even Jen Lilley (Maxie) is shouldering her part of the storyline. This is so hard.
I’m not sure how I feel about Sonny (Maurice Benard) speaking at Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) funeral. Patrick told him to “get the hell out,” but I’m not surprised he refused to leave. I get Sonny wanted to pay his respects to someone he’s known for so long, but if I were in Patrick’s shoes I wouldn’t have wanted him to speak at my dead wife’s funeral. READ MORE
SOAP BYTES: Hope Can't Shake Her Psychic Scarlet 'A' on Bold and Beautiful; Edward Recalls Dead Q's on General HospitalBy Luke Kerr on March 15, 2012
B&B BYTES: I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) has really screwed up Hope’s (Kim Matula) head. It is admirable that Hope is working desperately to save what she has with Liam (Scott Clifton), but with that big 'ol Scarlet 'A' that Steffy has managed to brand on Hope's psyche, it's no doubt Brooke' (Katherine Kelly Lang) daughter needs therapy!
GH BYTES: Leave it to John McBain (Michael Easton) to fire off a gun in a courthouse. I wonder, if there was a three-way gun fight at between John and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), who would be the last man standing?
John McBain to Todd: “Drop the gun, before I drop you.”
Carly (Laura Wright): “So that detective guy [John McBain] that showed up. What’s his story?”
Todd: “He has remarkably attractive hair.”
Carly: “Anything else?”
Todd: “No sense of humor.”
Who do you think framed Roger Rabbit…err…Sonny?
