As November Sweeps are in full bloom, your favorite daytime soaps gave fans some jaw-dropping, emotional and tense moments on yesterday’s cliffhanger Friday!

Of course, the one that most everyone is talking about is the key scene at the end of General Hospital, as Robin, after grilling “Duke” about moments together from their past, realizes she is not with the real Duke! And then came the shocker when “Duke” ripped off his false face to reveal … who?  Fade to black!

Over at The Bold and the Beautiful, Stephanie’s goodbye party kicked-off and we were treated to some very short but tender moments between Stephanie and Eric, and her children including the return of Kristen and Felicia as the party is about to begin.  Elsewhere, Katie who is losing her grip on reality is phoning Taylor, and Taylor is acting a bit suspicious too! Are the two conspiring to put Bill and Brooke together?  What is going on here?

At Days of our Lives, Arianne Zuker (Nicole) gave a knockout performance as a woman unglued as Nicole’s machinations are exposed, complete with what appeared to be a suicide attempt with a scalpel held to her throat and then an attempt to jump!  However, the best part of this for viewers is that this convoluted storyline involving Nicole, EJ, Rafe and Daniel and Jennifer will now come to an end! Please!

Finally at The Young and the Restless, Victoria has been kidnapped, Billy is to blame, and the guilty and upset hubby lets Victoria’s mother, Nikki, know they need money for a ransom to save her!  It was tense drama in Genoa City!

Have a few questions about the soaps this week –on B&B why is it bright and sunny everywhere in LA except outside Katie’s apartment? Every time she is there it is raining. On Y&R why is Ronan’s mustache always appearing and disappearing off his face? The poor guy must have to shave twenty times a day On Days how is it possible that everyone affected by Nicole’s lie all ended up at Jennifer’s place at exactly at the right moment to hear the truth. I can’t even get my family to come to dinner all at the same time, that is a pretty amazing feat. Just wondering?

Hi Mary… we have to remember they are soaps! However I totally agree and got a kick out of your post. I hate the screens with Aspen or LA spelled out on our screens for time that they shouldn’t waste on the tacky labels. What they forgot was the label that the rainy scene was “Katie’s mind” and not the sunny LA that is really where she is.

The idea that all those people showed up in the Horton house and then the town square is truly strange… but they are soaps! The town square is the leading character on DOOL these days… sorry getting just a bit tired of it. Your comments were very funny!

Ronan’s on again off again facial hair is funny… but there are so many more strange things going on… but again the comments are very cute and funny!

Thanks for insights- wish my reality could sometimes work like soap opera reality. I agree those tags on B&B are really lame, maybe some writer just discovered Google Earth and thought it be really cool to use it on the show. The Horton square on Days seems to be the place to meet in Salem, but you have to admit it is a safer meeting place than the docks, which is where everyone used to hang out.
At least with the square you will always know what season it is by the decorations, unlike the docks. And now it is heading toward Christmas it would be great if the square had one of those shopping days left signs, so I could know when it was time to turn off the show and head to malls.

GH cliffhanger was creepy good, omg was it creepy good, didn’t expect the face to come off ,that part was awesome and unexpected even though there’s been speculation that Duke wasn’t really Duke, it was must see tv. Good job GH , I can’t wait till Monday, that’s what I call a cliffhanger!

I hope Anna wakes up & realizes Duke is not Duke. And that Luke was right all along…

Fake Duke by far! It has to be Faison! So glad to finally have them say he is a fake as we all knew it! Maybe except for Anna… Can’t wait for the reveal! Love GH!!!

I agree with you Heidi, I also think it is Faison. Although, with Constance Towers returning as Helena once again, I know she will also figure into this somehow.

Ari Zuker has given outstanding performances ever since the now infamous October 8th when Nicole discovers her baby has died inside her. This week was no exception. She delivered a gripping, devastating yet entertaining performance that worked on all levels. Many kudos to her!

Over at GH, oh dear L-rd! I’m not watching but by the sounds of it, it’s typical RC! First the doctor, then “Duke”, and now someone else. Anything to stretch this story out further! And you (Michael) thought DAYS was dragging their baby storyline? How many months has the audience endured, and how many more months will the audience have to endure, when will Robin reunite with her family? 2014 perchance?

YR has not grabbed me since the new management came aboard. Not that MAB did either, but so far, I have missed episodes on YR and hardly care. Still boring and have no interest or reason for tuning in.

BB I wish I cared right now. I have never been a faithful, loyal viewer, but now would be the time to watch more than any other, yet, I can hardly bring myself to. Maybe months down the line I’ll rewatch all that I’ve been missing, but right now I just can’t seem to.

heidi

Agree! Ari Zucker did give a fabulous performance! She is very talented!

Agree somewhat with your comments about GH… but it is my favorite soap! Love it and want it to stay around for many more years… despite some of the things we don’t like so well For me it is the Connie stoyline.

Y&R is in a state of change at the moment… you can see the differences between the changes. Hoping it gets better and finds it’s momentum.

Totally agree with your comments on B&B! After Stephanie/Susan leaves I am not sure I will be able to watch it consistently… it is just too sad. They waste so much with so few minutes they have.

Dmitri

So sad for Nicole, but shr was wrong. I hope she is eventually reunited with EJ, but will tune in to her upcoming storyline with Eric, maybe Rafe thrown in. Still, Days isn’t very good right now.

GH by a landslide! That’s was a real cliffhanger is: suck you in, surprise and delight you, put you on the edge of your seat, pulling your hair out because you want more and know you won’t get it until Monday. That was GH today. Frankly, (no pun intended), it’s been that way a lot since Cartini arrived. Bravo!

Scott (ATWT Fan)

The GH cliffhanger made ZERO sense. Taking his “face” off? How dumb does Ron believe he are? It’s the dumbest thing he’s ever written, and there’s been a lot of dumb things on that list.

DAYS/Y&R/B&B are on-top of their game and are the best soaps on the air. The Nicole confrontation had amazing acting on both Arianne Zucker and Kate Mansi; both actresses put on Emmy winning performances. Y&R has been on fire since J+J took the show over, which makes me laugh at those who said they’d “destroy” it. They’ve made the show a lot more centralized and character-dictated. Something the series has yet to be in the past five years.

B&B is honoring its history of Stephanie beautifully. And I am loving a Ridge-free enviornment. It makes for a much more enjoyable experiencing watching the series. The PPD storyline with Katie is so empowering that I’m over-taken with Ms. Tom’s excellent portrayal of Katie. I love it! Keep it up you three series.

Jules

Once again, we agree on GH. I’m so glad I’m not alone in not buying the overhyped nonsense that show is selling. If people love it, that’s great for them. But I’m finding it all convoluted, destructive to the legacy of characters and history and way, way over dramatized to the point of embarrassing to watch…which is why I no longer do.

Also agree with you on DAYS, all the way.

Maybe if I felt more connected to YR and BB I’d feel the same with you on both shows too. I’m a newer viewer to YR and was scratching my head at the possibility of the show being #1 in viewership with a constant swing dancing of partners and horrible plot points during MAB’s tenure. I want to give YR a shot now but I’m still not jiving with it. And in regards to BB, as I said in my own post above, I wish I cared. I genuinely mean that. Eventually I think I will spend an evening and watch all the clips together of Stephanie’s goodbyes but right now I just simply have no desire.

Mary SF

I’m not a GH follower, but if all you need to impersonate someone is a mask, someone should tell that to Stefano Dimera on Days, he could save a fortune in plastic surgery bills the next time he wants to kidnap a Brady and replace them with a double.

Days is having moments of brilliance again, not nodding off while it is on, so that is a good sign. Y&R, story wise still in transition, but the writing is so much better. Characters act like real people again, with real emotions, instead of stereotypes and melodramatics. Use to dislike Avery, but since giving her an apartment and a sense of humor she is becoming one of my new faves.

B&B, I am sorry but I am with Jules on that one. I am trying really hard to get back into it, since I began watching again for Stephanie’s goodbye. I am a fan, but for me watching this show right now is like watching paint dry and it saddens me because it used to be one of my never miss shows.

Why would duke be faison he was much smaller man and how come robin figured it out but anna who was married to him can not figure out that it is not him and she is the police comm o

Robbyrob

Kathleen,

I know you want some sense of reality but come on. All soaps do this and you can argue whether it merits you to not watch OR go along for the ride. Personally, I love to suspend reality for an hour a day. GH has been so good since Frank & Ron have taken over. A number of beloved former cast members are returning and a respect for the history of GH is being used. If this is Faison, remember he and Helena were in cahoots faking Lucky’s death years ago so doing it to Robin is very intriguing. If you didn’t turn off GH when they had Casey the alien , then this is nothing. GH is top notch entertainment and I couldn’t be happier. So what if the actor who plays Faison is shorter or whatever. If Anna figured out everything right away she’d have no story. Remember Anna first came on GH with a fake scar…how come Robert didn’t figure that out right away either????

SZima

What?

“…Katie, who is losing her grip on reality, is phoning Taylor, and Taylor is acting a bit suspicious too! Are the two conspiring to put Bill and Brooke together? What is going on here?”

Taylor is the one who phoned Katie.
Taylor is acting suspicious because she insisted that Katie come back to her husband? How is she “conspiring” to get Bill & Brooke together?

LucyFan

Watching as Nicole mentally unravelled was just breathtaking. Ari was sublime and the rest of the cast as they watched were clearly in awe of her talent. Days is pretty good right now but I do wish they’d wrap up some storylines from the previous writers – Is John still legally married to Hope or did that divorce go through, and when will he & Marlena re-re-re-re-re-marry? Where will that leave Hope if/when Bo is declared dead – and then again when Peter Reckell comes back (face it!)? If Gabi is pregnant, the idea of Sami being a grandmothr is beyond laughable – she needs to grow up BIG time & stay with Rafe who grounds her (and makes Ali a better actress – when she’s with James, they both look like they are going to start giggling at any moment). Jennifer and Daniel TOTALLY need to get married and TOTALLY need to be killed off (bodies found, no coming back) – both characters are boring beyond belief. I am, however, IN LOVE with the Maggie/Victor pairing, as well as nurse Maxine – she really owns her scenes! Days needs to get back to character-driven umbrella storylines that take years to tell and get the heck away from love triangles & pregnancies. <3'in Days!

And the winner is………………..Cesar Faison!!!! WOW!

Faison was one of my original guesses as to ‘who has Robin’ Make so much more sense than nice Duke coming back as lethal…. that is Faison’s thing!

glad we get them all back tho!
