Daniel Hall Off The Young and the Restless!

When Scott Grainger exited Genoa City for Europe last week, it signaled for now the end of the run of Daniel Hall.

In story, Scott relocated from Genoa City to London.  However, The Young and the Restless has not issued a statement on the status of Hall.

Inquisitive minds sprouted up on Twitter, and one asked if Scott would be seen on Y&R again, to which the actor responded, “It’s gonna be a while, I believe :/”

Scott’s on-screen lady love, Melissa Ordway (Abby) was also written-off to Europe due to the actress maternity leave.  So, it appears the door could be left open for a return down the line for Hall, since Ordway will be on her way back to the show soon.

So, what are your thoughts of Daniel being written-out of Y&R? Do you hope he returns? Comment below.

I had such hopes for Scott when Daniel joined Y&R. However, the writers have completely ruined the character with bad writing and bad storylines, starting with how Scott reacted when he woke up with the dead prostitute in the motel room. The writing just went steadily downhill from there. The abrupt ending of Shott after the build-up over 8 months and the about face of Scott’s character left me shaking my head. It’s too bad because I like Daniel Hall and think he is talented. If he returns, I hope it is to better writing.

I for one won’t miss him one bit. His role bored me. It seemed if he couldn’t have Sharon, he’d take Abby. He looked kind of WUS like with that poodle hair.

I would like to see the character if not the actor return. Now that sheila is alive, we still gotta see her cross paths with Lauren which means Scott will figure in too. I know Kimberlin Brown hasn’t been seen on B&B in a few weeks and I do have hope Sheila’s story will pick up. This brings me back to Daniel Hall and Scott. Yes, I would like to see him return. Let’s see where the stories will lead us.

Oh no I hope your wrong. Enough already of Sheila. How many times can someone die? I say bring him back for Abby but make him get a hair cut and shave, otherwise find a street person for him that Sharon is helping.

Love his hair! Matt Cohen and Aidan Turner, two similar looking actors, also had longish hair like this and it’s gorgeous! Some guys can just carry it…and Scott is one of them.

Without a doubt– Scott will return to continue on with Abby..
Most likely she will be pregnant and it will Scotts..
Scott and Abby will be.

Anyways– pregnant or not Scott will return for Abby (( Scott will return.

That was my first statement when Melissa became pregnant. But, I said it was Zack’s baby….then, after the “wharehouse” thing, I said Abby would not really know who the bio dad was. I remember, after she and Scott had sex, she mentioned something about ….”no worries because she was on birth-control” ( paraphrasing). To me? That was such an “underhanded” clue!!!! I hope I haven’t lost my sense of sniffing, LOL. Then, I said that if the actress’s pregnancy would not be an issue, she would be sent away to a spa to recoup from all the hullabaloo. But, now… Read more »

was really starting to enjoy the abby/ scott pairing… could feel something was clandestine at their goodbye in paris which at the time i didn’t realise was really the last time they ‘d be together. Beautiful send off…left me hoping they ll be reunited one day

I wasn’t too happy about where they took Scott’s story after he was rescued and brought back to Genoa City. He seemed a man of integrity, but increasingly could be “bought” by the likes of Victor or his own ambition.

Celia
Guest

I still ask myself why TPTB made such a complete turnabout regarding Scott.
Is it possible “they” were looking to send him packing and changing his persona so drastically facilitated the ‘transition’, as it were, rose?

He reminds me of a blind date I had. Took 3 hours and endless phone calls to find my address. I do not live in the boonies. Upon arrival, immediately ran and hid in my bathroom. When he finally emerged, he ran for the exit. Memories. Misty watercolor memories. I fully understand and sympathize with PTSD sufferers. Except when they steal my purse. I seem to trigger Pre-traumatic stress disorder. Even the Frango mints and comment cards go untouched. As do I.

Ha! ha!! You are hilarious. Phyllis, my sister had a blind date which was almost as horrific as yours.
She was in the passenger seat and he puts in a Hootie and the Blowfish CD. He starts to sing along, he sings along loudly and badly. At the stop lights, he turns his head to look at her and sings,”I only want to be with you.” At the fifth stop light, she opened the door and jumped out of the car. She never saw her Hootie and the Blowfish fan man again.

I hope he comes back!! I thought he had sizzling chemistry with Abby and was hoping they would finally get together. Adored them. I’m upset that it’s looking like that will never happen. I also wanted to see the show delve into his relationship with his mother, Lauren. The only time they seemed to acknowledge the Lauren/Scotty dynamic was when Lauren disapproved of Scott dating Sharon. There should have been more substance there. Scott has a lot to offer the canvas. Bring him back and let the story that had been building play out. Y&R doesn’t have all that much… Read more »

I like him. I like his acting and I like his chemistry with Abby. This show always does a great job with the vets, but they really need to commit more and write better storylines and create engaging couples in the younger set. Scott and Abby had that classic old school winning soap couple vibe…the bickering, the push/pull, etc. In a few of their scenes, they reminded me in a way of Eden and Cruz from the late, great Santa Barbara. I hope Scott will be back, hopefully with this actor, but if not, with another one. Scott is a… Read more »

he was never right for the role they need to find a major replacement have the casting directors over there fallen asleep btw the next actor should actually have chemistry with abby and yes his mother lauren send sharon back to nick that is the end game

They really dropped the ball with Hall. Ha Ha Scott’s story ended very strangely. Him showing up in Paris to see Abby was so random. And no goodbye scenes with Lauren??!! Thumbs down.

He wasn’t even on a year. Came on with big fanfare and then fizzled out. I think Scott and Sharon could have been really good. They ruined it.

Can he keep the annoying, insipid Abby off-screen for a long while, too? I like the actress, can’t stand how she portrays the character-reminds me of the insipid, VERY annoying Lulu on General Hospital.

Celia

Hey, Jovin,
I think that Melissa, as seemingly spoiled as Abby is, brought some class and maturity to the character. Emme was more of an airhead…daddy’s little girl who seemed not to take her gaffes too seriously—immature.
What do you think? Do you like Melissa better, in the role? I’d like to have others’ opinions….love diversity, in a nice way, LOL.

Harry
Guest
Harry

I agree with Celia. I never liked Emme’s Abby either.
In fact, I don’t care for her interpretation of Lulu either and if she brushes her long hair forward and puts glasses on, she will look like Cousin It.
She’s too short for such long hair.

Poor Emme’s Lulu hasn’t been able to catch a fashion break since she was enveloped in that “Great Pink Pumpkin on Wheels” get-up at last year’s NB.

I dont want anyone losing a job but he was NOT right for the part. Too old and no chemistry with anyone. The hair was horrendous and how in the world would he ever pay Victor back 10 million dollars? He screwed over Sharon. Ridiculous! Plus, they dont have Lauren on enough. What should have happened is Fenn should have came back. And he could.

Celia

I agree with everything you said, T…except for the chemistry part…he did have some chemistry with Abby, I think…..I saw the attraction…just my opinion, Timmmy.

Oh Celia, speaking of Emme Rylan, what the heck are they doing with Lulu? All she’s missing is a hat with a scoop on it and a badge saying “Ace” or better yet “CUB REPORTER”. Is it MEANT to be laughable? Like when she and Maxie were the modern Bobbsey Twins ferreting out Nelle’s secrets. I thought it was comic relief. Silly me.

@Soaphound. Afternoon/evening, Soaphound, Hello!! I really like Emme…Lulu, not at all….I even liked her better as Abby on Y&R ( not a lot…just a teensy little bit) . What are they doing to her, is right…..and, who dresses her? She is small in stature; much like myself, but my clothes do not seem to swallow me whole. I can’t see her body….between the length of her hair and the bulky apparrel, she might as well not be there. All we see is her head….a pretty head…but, where’s the rest of her? Yes, the investigating reporter just isn’t her game….poor Lulu,… Read more »

Right Timm. Spot lost me the day he moved into Sharon’s and started seeing Abby’s goofy looking face when he kissed Sharon or when he looked at pictures of Sharon. I mean, it appeared he moved in with Sharon just because he needed a place to crash! Then Sharon kicks his butt out and he appears at Abby’s door who also says,”Out damn, Spot!” (I know I have been redundant with this joke, but it cracks me up. Yes, I laugh at my own jokes. Honestly, I need humor in my life). Oh, and it doesn’t help that Lauren plays… Read more »

Nail on the head Harry, Lauren treats Scotty like a kid. Thats another reason to have Finn around. Although he is not young either, he has more story possibilities and the kid can act!

I don’t see anything definitive here. He hasn’t said that he’s permanently off Y&R.
He and Abby may come back as a couple after Melissa’s maternity leave.

He needs a shave and a real haircut, not the “trim” that Reed got.

Scott Grainger’s return to Genoa City was welcomed by me. As time went on though, I found a lack of mother-son chemistry between the actors. I also wanted Scott to be more fiery (globetrotting journalist) as well as cerebral. Tho the latter is suspect after the human trafficking story line. That could hav e been a barn burner of a plot affecting so many. It lacked suspense or high emotional stakes. I am not sure a triangle involving Sharon was best route to take, but it was good to see Sharon be with someone outside the closed circle and be… Read more »

I don’t care for him. He’s a mediocre actor and looks much older than his age (he’s in his early 30s IRL). Y&R needs to either recast the role with someone more charismatic or keep Scott off the canvas permanently.

Celia
Guest

Yeah, PF….as I previously stated on another site; Scott and Lauren looked more like husband and wife, than mother and son.

Mary SF

The fact the character has nothing to do if Abby isn’t around proves how weak the character was written. Couples are important to soaps but each half of the couple needs to be a strong character on their own, a character that can fit into a number of stories and not just one– the way Scott was written made him a one note wonder– the same can be said for the character Ravi– what is his purpose other than to be eye candy for Ashley and even that isn’t working out.

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

I always felt sorry for Ravi. Ashley I thought gave that poor guy false hope then dumped him in a public area, in work, in a hallway, saying she used him then walked off. I want to see some consequences for that type of treatment. I love the way they have written Hillary lately and it’s so nice to see her getting along with Lily and just about everyone. I still hate Nick & Chelsea together.

Harry
Guest
Harry

I felt sorry for Ravi too, Nikki. Ashely has become just a horrible character and I used to like her. When she turned him away at Thanksgiving (and with he armed with a fruit pie) I was livid! Who does that? She invited him or made him think he was invited. Then this darling lad asks Ashely out on a real date and she turns him down. However, later, she calls him and tells him to meet her in room 246 at the Genoa City Hotel. Young Ravi opens the door of the hotel room, only to see Ashely, wearing… Read more »

Celia
Guest

Well said. I said this before, Nikki, my admiration of Ashley stopped with the Ravi fiasco. Was that an ‘over mid-life’ crisis? She took a schoolboy to bed. Think about it. Poor Ravi!!
Nick and Chelsea are a joke….too bad because I love the actors.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

I agree, Nikki. And, in today’s climate, Ravi could have a case for harassment (warranted or not). After all, Ashley did go to Victoria with threats if Victoria had gotten him to switch employers.

Mo
Guest
Mo

They should have had Scott interact more with his family: Lauren, Michael, Jill, Kevin, and Gloria.

I like Ravi. Don’t understand why they split up Ashley and Ravi. Although, if she was just going to use him for booty calls, it’s fine. Was hoping he might have story with Hilary, but no. Don’t know what Ravi will be doing.

Iakovos
Guest
Iakovos

You nailed it, Mo. Scott was a fail to a degree because he never was integrated with his family upon his return. That is huge. (And Kevin should never have been written off.)

As for Ravi, this character has been written into a corner, and I am not sure he has purpose. Ashley needs a man who is allowed to be more sizzling or charismatic.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yeah, Mo. Also, Lauren acted the over-the-top-mother-hen soooo annoyingly. Gee–if my mother-in-law, or anyone’s mother-in-law, treated my husband as her little boy who never grew up, I would have pulled out every hair on my head in frustration. I know Sharon wasn’t married to Scott, but they were together. I always knew the Ashley and Ravi fling wasn’t going to last, Mo. I think the writers finally realized the age difference was too great. Not realistic. Thirty year….. even for soaps….unless Ravi was after her booty ( oops; pardon the double entendre: that’s Harry’s specialty, LOL). But, he is such… Read more »

Celia

Exactly, Mary!!!! You got it….when Abby comes back, Scott may have a shot; however, as you say, he needs to hold his own. The question is, does it take good writing tailored to the character?…. or the characted holding the audience with mouth agape on his own merit?….. or a collaborstion??

Shay
Guest
Shay

So, Ashley has also “gone cougar,” with this Ravi, CeeCeeGirl? In that case, she should move to Port Charles and join the Ava and Alexis Club…those two need some competition when it comes to hunting down young male flesh to satiate their carnal desires!

@Shay, Hi, Shaybelle, That’s not the half of it, Shay, LOL…..Ashley is turning into her brother, Jack. I am trying to understand why TPTB feel the need to turn Ashley, the ever-loving peacemaker, the altruistic , most caring woman on the show, into a shrew and a despot? She is going as far as to incite and recruit Abby ( her daughter), to sabotage Victoria. My instincts are screaming, Shay…..they are telling me, in no uncertain terms, Ashley has more than to “re-sass” ( Ha!) Brash ‘n Sassy on her mind….she wants to topple, take hold, imprison and re-invent Newman… Read more »

@CeeCee….I always liked Ashley….. she was such a class act and when Eileen Davidson first came on Y&R, she played off Terry Lester’s Jack in such a believable familial fashion, since thed really did look like brother and sister! Alas, once Lester left the soap, my interest in it waned…I could just never warm up to Dr. Cliff Warner as “NewJack!”

Hi, Shay,

I loved the actor and loved his hair. It was refreshing to have someone who didn’t look like every other soap guy. Also, journalists tend to be more individualistic so that was believable. The writing for the character, though, was all over the place and really let the actor down. If they could solidify the characterization, I think Mr. Hall would really sizzle.

Violet Lemm

Not crazy about the actor, especially the hair! He looked way to old to be Lauren’s son. Ravi’s character has more sex appeal, is more interesting, etc. in his own way , even with Mrs. Robinson! Abby bugs me, with her needing to please daddy and outshine Victoria, and way too full of herself, insecurity maybe.

Celia
Guest
Celia

You have a point, Violet. When someone tries too hard by explaining her motives and actions and pointing fingers, as Abby did ( especially towards Victoria, and to some degree, Scott himself) , yes, she lacks confidence and has issues of insecurity. She needed to be number one in Daddy’s eyes.
Abby always felt persecuted by her sister. I don’t remember when or how that all started. Maybe she will see a psychiatrist while in Paris. LOL.

Abby was raised by Brad Carlton and inherited his home and money the fact this character is living in a tack house and depending on Victor is stupid.

I would like to see the character return– explore his past. What made him a writer? Good grief, Y and R writers are NOT showing us the struggles and successes, the ups and downs of being a writer! There should have been a great storyline about real news and fake news, online reporting and live television reporting. When Y and R first began in the 70s, Stuart Brookes ran the local newspaper. There was a golden opportunity to explore the validity of news reporting; instead, we got glimpses of sensationalized garbage being meaningful “literature” for viewers through the antics of… Read more »

Marla Gibbs Joins Days of our Lives

Nearly 24 hours, after beloved TV star Marla Gibbs, almost passed out during her induction ceremony to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, comes more news.  Now, Gibbs is set to appear on NBC’s Days of our Lives.

According to SOD, Gibbs will play the mother to Jackée Harry’s, Paulina.  Look for her first appearance in the role of Olivia Price on August 17th.

The former star of The Jeffersons, now 90-years-old, was giving her speech in Hollywood yesterday when suddenly she stopped and began to appear to faint.  Gibbs’ son helped get her into as chair and some water, so she could recover.

The hot temperatures were to blame for Gibbs’ moment, but it all ended up ok.  Her daughter, Angela, told the crowd Marla needed a moment and would continue.

Later after she resumed her speech, Marla told ABC’s George Pennacchio on the Walk of Fame honor: “I never thought it would happen, but here it is.  I just got overwhelmed for a minute. I haven’t been excited until this moment!”

Watch a segment from ABC7 on Marla’s Hollywood Walk of Fame induction below.  Then let us knowl what you think of Gibbs coming to DAYS via the comment section,

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.
