This Week in Daytime,
I teared up at As the World Turns’ tribute to Nancy Hughes (Helen Wagner). The episode contained so many wonderful flashbacks. I was in the midst of patting myself on the back for not letting it get to me when they began Nancy’s Thanksgiving prayer and I knew I was a goner. Of course, that touching scene was immediately followed by Katie’s (Terri Colombino) flashbacks of Nancy. I know each ATWT fan has their own fond memories, but there are three reasons I fell in love with ATWT and Oakdale. 1) I discovered ATWT because it was where my beloved Another World characters ended up. 2) I couldn’t get enough of Jack (Michael Park) and Carly’s (Maura West) on again/off again relationship 3). Katie and Simon’s (Paul Leyden) romance–nurtured by Nancy–hooked me. Share your favorite Nancy Hughes moments in the comments. We miss you Helen Wagner.

I wondered why they needed to share the desk considering that office was ginormous and would likely fit a second desk for the time being. READ MORE
Ok, so I was wrong. Last week, I said one of the episodes was the one that Jonathan Jackson should submit for his Emmy. Clearly, today's episode should be the one he submits and wins.
Talk about raw passion and emotion. It was all there. Anger, sadness, heartbreak and disappointment. I also think Rebecca Herbst did a bang up job. The fear, the desperation and the lies to try to save her hide.
By contrast, Tyler Christopher spent the episode looking like he was mentally reading the ingredients on a bottle of ketchup, except for a brief moment when he had a line of water coming down his face. It was as if suddenly the make up department realized that he needed to look invested and pulled out the bottle of Visine. READ MORE
