Thanksgiving at the Graysons will be anything but peaceful, but why would we want it to be?  The juicy primetime soap, Revenge returns tonight at 9PM EST/PST time on ABC for an episode entitled “Lineage”!

Here is what to expect:  hindsight’s 20/20 when a flashback to 2006 has Victoria getting a surprise visit from her estranged mother, triggering memories of her tumultuous upbringing. Emily embarks on her first mission under Takeda’s training, where she meets Aiden and learns of his revenge path. 2006 is also the year Nolcorp goes public, and Carl Porter gets into hot water when he crosses the wrong people on the docks.

Look for the debut of Adrienne Barbeau as Victoria’s  (Madeleine Stowe) mother, and as has been much talked about former Guiding Light star, E. J. Bonilla first appears as a man from Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann) past.  Bonilla’s character of Marco will be seen in a flashback tonight, and will appear in the present on next week’s episode.

Looking forward to tonight’s Revenge?  After the jump check out some preview clips!

Still no Asian americans on this soap abt the wealthy? I’m glad I stopped watching this racist crap. I’m guessing Takeda’s still asexual and w/o a romantic relationship on a soap opera while Nolan of course gets a love interest bec the lgbt characters are ALWAYS more significant than Asian americans. What a joke. The buying potential of Asian Americans is at 718.4 billion dollars! If the Asian american demographic were a country they’d be the 18th strongest economy on the planet! Where are the rich Asian american characters on soap operas w/c center on very rich families? According to the LA Times 40% of the rest of americans are among professional and managerial roles however 50% of Asian americans are among professional and managerial roles. Yet all these soaps and tv shows only show majority whites at corporate settings. How racist! LA Times reports that Asian americans are more likely to shop than whites and yet where are the representations from the media? hollywood would never ignore lgbt community but they love to mock and ridicule and belittle Asian americans. Shows like revenge epitomize the racist crap from hollywood as the enlightened and progressive and liberal hollywood fools keep ignoring and discriminating against Asians as usual!

Intriguing casting news out of Port Charles on Sunday. The ABC daytime drama series has tapped former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert to play the character of  Yvonne,who is said to be a love interest for Mike (Max Gail) at the nursing home he is now in.

According to EW.com, Yvonne will end up having a connection to someone or someones on the canvas.

Hubert’s first episode is slated to air on December 7th.   Sitcom fans remember Janet from “Fresh Prince’ in scenes with Will Smith in the series in the role of Vivian Banks.

GH is not Janet’s first soap, either.  She appeared on One Life to Live as Evangeline Williamson’s (Renee Elise Goldsberry) and Layla Williamsom’s (Tika Sumpter) mother, Lisa.  The actress also appeared on All My Children as Alice Dawson.

In another twist, Hubert will reunite with Vernee Watson (Stella)om GH.  The two appeared together on “Fresh Prince”, where Watson played Will’s mother.

So does this mean that Yvonne and Stella are both going to be romantically interested in Mike Corbin?

What do you think of the casting news?  Interested to see this next leg of Mike’s story as he declines from Alzheimer’s, but may find love?  Comment below.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
