Do not toy with us General Hospital! For years Quartermaine family fans have begged and pleaded for the return of the Quartermaine heir to the family fold. Today, Carly (Laura Wright) returned to the Quartermaine mansion, in need of–and asking for–help. Later–in one of those rare moments–the Quartermaine's prodigal son, Jason (Steve Burton), stopped by and Edward (John Ingle) asked him to return too. READ MORE
On today's ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Regan, Tina and Nicki discuss the latest in All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital news and storylines, including:
Kendall's men problems continue, as All My Children ramps up for its Cougar storyline. Are Erica and Ryan even remotely appealing? Who should Kendall end up with if Ryan is with Erica and Zach is with Liza? Luke has a suggestion that the others don't like. They say Doctors are the worst patients, in Frankie's case it seems to be true. Liza has mommy issues. Can the child really be protected from David Hayward?
Michael's anger issues are giving Drew Garrett some great material, but does he really have impulse control problems? Matt gets drunk and has a chip on his shoulder. Tina weighs in with her thoughts on Martha Byrne's debut on General Hospital. Should the show have provided better build up for the introduction of her character? General Hospital was doing a Cougar storyline with Olivia and Johnny before All My Children did it with Erica and Ryan.
Marcie gets her miracle baby on One Life to Live. Cole was sentenced to prison time. Does anyone believe he'll actually do a full sentence? Could Starr be raising their daughter on her own? Todd's reaction to Cole proposing had Regan cracking up. Dorian woke up with a hangover, but do we buy Ray being the love of Dorian's life? How will Natalie factor into the Rex and Gigi saga? Gigi tries to seduce Kyle while he's more interested in Fish.
All this and much more on today's show.

My absence from Daytime Confidential lately has not been due to the usual business of family and work taking up a lot of my time, but rather a certain lack energy to post about practically any of the daytime serials that clog up my DVR from day to day. This is neither a positive nor a negative thing because there are frequent periods throughout the year when shows kind of coast along and do their their thing, usually between sweeps.
At these times, there is little for the viewer — if that viewer is me — to get all worked up about this plot twist, that character's action, some couple or another or even a whole show's direction. Normally, this state of affairs hits one or two shows at a time. Every once in a while like the last couple of weeks, the stars align and all the serials get caught in the same momentum of drift. All that is required of us is to watch and see where it all goes.
In that spirit, my brain plays a little game of soap opera hopscotch, taking in odds and ends big and small. There is no great elaboration on anything here, just a quick rundown of things I like and not like so much. Your mileage may vary... READ MORE
Here’s the Scoop! 06.15.09
JOlivia… more to come? That’s the RUMOR! I actually like them together. Does this pairing have the legs to go the distance? Surely Dante’s arrival will throw a wrench at the “mechanic.” Weigh in!
What’s the Mayor going public with? It’s SPOILED to be “startling.” Will he out his affair with the DA? Do we really care about this story except for it including Martha Byrne (Andrea Floyd)? What exactly do Ric and Andrea have cooking?
Was Rick Hearst given a proper send off? RUMOR has it there wasn’t enough time. But there was enough time for a little Hearst –Byrne interaction. What’s the deal? One RUMOR says Ric wanted the DA job back and was using Andrea to get it. Maybe “using” isn’t the right word. The SCOOP says Andrea is the one to tell Ric about Alexis and Mayor Floyd’s indiscretion. Was Ric planning on using that information to get his old job back? Really Ric? You’re no angel; in fact, you slept with your wife’s daughter around the same time. READ MORE
