Monday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the last episode of Briana Lane in the role of Brook Lynn Quartermaine. Lane took over the role while Amanda Setton was on maternity leave.

In story, Brook Lynn tells her father, Ned she needs some distance and is leaving town, so she is heading to Bensonhurst.  She tells Valentin, she is leaving Port Charles and he wishes her luck,  But hold the phone! After Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) exits Brook Lynn pulls out a pregnancy test!  Is she preggers with Valentin’s bi0-child?  Guess the story will play out when Amanda Setton returns.

That’s too bad! Briana Lane did a terrific job filling in and I wanted her to stay! Things were just getting interesting and she has great chemistry with JPS!

What a brilliant job she did as BLQ. Briana Lane…remember that name! Here’s hoping casting directors from other soaps take a good look at her, and bring her on. She can do it all, remarkable range.

Too bad, she was perfect for the role. She looked like a younger version of her Grandma Tracy and really looks like she could be Ned’s daughter. The actress just fit in as Brooklyn. I wish she could stay on.

Briana clicked with every scene partner. What a true find — Mark Teschner does it again.

As others mentioned, she could have a nice career in soaps.

The character of Brook Lynn transformed with Briana’s performance. She took a one-note character and made her multi-dimensional.

I was thrilled when Amanda Setton was cast, and look forward to her return, but enjoyed every moment of Briana’s 3+ months in the role.

Can’t wait to see the eventual great grandchild of Tracy Quartermaine & Helena Cassadine.

Briana, you did a great job. The Brook Lyn character was always a bit irritating to me but you made her more watchable. And sympathetic after Nelle did her dirty deed. Best in the future.

Briana was amazing. Wish she could stay since they didn’t bring back Adrianne Leon last year.

Briana Lane made me completely forget Amanda Setton as Brook Lynn! That’s not to say Amanda isn’t a good actress, but Briana knocked it out of the park. She had chemistry with every scene partner, and brought a new spin on the character that I really enjoyed. I hope they bring her back as another character in the near future.

I was hoping that after her talk with Ned, Brook Lynn would change her mind and stay. I really like Amanda, but Briana really sparkled as a Q. I’m sorry to see her go.

But, such is show-biz. Best wishes to an exiting Briana and Welcome Back to a returning Amanda.

Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Brook Lynn and Valentine when she returns with a baby or baby-bump. That was a surprise to me!

This actress was so good! I love Amanda and welcome her back but I didnt have a problem with Briana. Its tough to step in and she did it quite well. Briana is talented and will land on a different show. I would even keep her on GH, change up her look a little and cast her as Liz’s sister.

I completely like her way more then Amanda setton, sorry to say, I mean is this the way its suppose to go? the fill in ends up being better then the one she’s filling in for? I hope GH brings her back as another character although I really like her as Brooklyn, she had great chemistry with everyone. Is the show going to re shoot? Its ironic that the show shot Brooklyns breakout story during Briana run, because under Amanda Brooklyn was really doing nothing.

The writing was likely too far along as without COVID, the Nurses Ball and Nelle slashing BLQ’s throat would have appeared on screen in May (when Setton was available). As Brook Lynn was integral to that storyline, they had to recast.

As we get into November, we are hitting scenes that were probably written since the show resumed work in July. Thus, a logical (temporary) exit for the character.

I was reluctant to get on board with Lane at first. I also understand the writing for BrookLynn improved vastly right at the time Sutton went on maternity leave (as an actress I bet she was dying, knowing she missed performing during this important arc of her character’s story). I want to commend Brianna Lane, for getting me on board with the transformation to a kinder, gentler BrookLynn. I am a big fan of Amanda Sutton from her days on OLTL. I believe she would have delivered not only a baby but a great performance as well. But it is… Read more »

Briana was mesmerizing as Brook Lyn, and I soo wish she would stay. Amanda was nice, but THIS girl just brought Brook Lyn to LIFE, without overacting. It was effortless for her. I sure hope that a soap, (or a show SOMEWHERE) finds a spot for her, because I would LOVE to see what else she’s capable of. It’s not often that we see an actor step into an established role, and gets it right from the very FIRST DAY!!! Briana is a baaaad chick!!! GO girl!

Briana did an amazing job, I can’t believe we can’t keep her. She’s way more believable as Brooklyn than Amanda. Can we petition for her to stay, she has chemistry with all her co-stars.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
