Watch the preview after the jump!  Then, let us know will you have the hankies ready for the two-day farewell to Katherine?  What do you think might happen in story that might surprise or shock you? Weigh-in!

Well, I hope I will need my hankie otherwise it would mean the writers did a lousy job. As for shock or surprises– I doubt it, this show hasn’t had either in their stories for a very long time that if there was a surprise– I would be shock.

I predict Carmine will be back. The last shot of him was sitting in his cell, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be around.

Plus he’s too hot to waste!

Just watched the first episode of Katherine’s celebration of life.

It was great to see Gina again (along with all of the other former characters that returned for the celebration).

Previews for the second episode mention Katherine’s will & knowing Katherine, I’m sure there’ll be something “explosive” in her will.

Didn’t you find it funny, there wasn’t even enough chairs for the small amount of characters that were there to sit on? They could have made the set just a tad bigger so those characters didn’t have to stand there, while Father Todd had a park bench all to himself. Could say a lot about part one but don’t want to spoil it for the American fans who have yet to see it–there were some disappointments, but overall I think they did a good job so far celebrating everything Katherine was.

Well tell me did Gina go over and smack Kevin for burning her restaurant down? You know him trying to kill Colleen but hey the past writers made him a friend of Katherine’s he only tried to kill her friend John Abbott’s granddaughter the fact he got a letter just tells you how bad these writers are and does Jill know she has a real son named Billy. I have heard what happens I am not impressed and I tell you the fact they did not even attempt to get TB/Phillip back just for a couple of episodes really makes… Read more »

I have a full box, and a new tape for the VCR! Hopefully, CBS will create a Katherine Chancellor DVD that will hold her final episode, the tribute, Murphy breaking the news to here loved ones in the living room, their reations the past 2 weeks and the funeral. The proceeds could go to her favorite rehab center in TX, so as not to profit, but it would certainly be an act of good will. Her/their devoted fans would much appreciate it! I had hopes that they would invite LOTS of old cast members who “heard the news or read… Read more »

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
