General Hospital is telling a whole host of flashy storylines right now! They are telling one of the ugliest storylines in the show’s history, with Tripp being accused of raping Allie. We KNOW he didn’t do it, so it is extra painful to watch him be accused. We don’t know a lot about Allie either, and this is compromising her character. Another World did this story when Morgan was accused of raping Lorna. All My Children did it when Ryan Lavery was accused of raping that Montgomery sister. It’s just an ugly, non-suspenseful, hard to watch story on any show,… Read more »

I am hoping NBC releases solo publicity images from their recent shoot, and not a select number of the usual faces. I’d love a major release!

Congratulations! I wish that I could say that I’m enjoying the show the way I used too, but that would be a lie. I tune in for certain couples & that’s it. Writers have been disappointing since the so called successful time jump..

I do agree with you and just watch the interesting parts or couples as you said. I sure didn’t need to be reminded of Kate’s affair all those years ago with Bill Horton, resulting in Lucas’s birth. Good thing she’s too old to breed, since she’s had a child with every man she’s slept with.

OK mortals.. here’s a longshot theory that just popped into a Devil’s head…. If you listened carefully to what Kayla said about the results of the DNA test, she’s sure that Tripp is baby Henry’s father as he’s a match and the only other person who could be a match would be Steve. Well obviously Steve wouldn’t have had sex with Allie…….. Except Steve at the time was under the control of the Stefano brain chip delusion. And since he doesn’t remember most of what he did while being chipped, he wouldn’t know. I don’t think Stefano (or somebody delusionally… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.
