That was a great twist today, definitely did not see that coming! Y&R has been doing really great lately.

Pretty weird. If his mom died, seems more logical to have
his dad fly to him in Australia. No one called Ben? But
his son suddenly shows up at the police station. Who
came with him?
Anyway, this boy seems like a handful already.

Very true, Nanci. There are strict rules and regulations about a child traveling alone without a parent’s consent. And, even then, there is a certain protocol to follow. Is he a stowaway? We’ll soon find out. One thing is very puzzling to me; as Ben was on his haunches questioning his son, Max relayed that his mother had died. Then he continued saying, “… And you killed her”. ( Or he may have said “because of you”….I can’t remember). But, while he declared this, he turned his head to look straight at Abby. Was he accusing Ben or Abby? I… Read more »

I swear, lol. I think Max will wipe the smile from Abby’s happy bride face
in record time!

Yes, indeed, more logical but far less dramatic.

So did Jenna kill herself and then Max bought himself a plane ticket like SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE?! What about a passport?

Oh, maybe he stowed away somehow. I hope for once there is some logic to one of Y&R’s storylines. I tried to watch yesterday’s episode last night after the kids went to bed and it PUT ME TO SLEEP. My internal clock has been messed up for about a year now. I guess the key is watching Y&R before bed because DOOL didn’t put me to sleep.

Happy New Year Suooo I see you still have your sense of humor that probably is not off the mark too much with Pratt writing. I expect any day to see the shrink Sandy to be looking in the mirror and take off a wig and see a big scar on her head. Think Kimberly Shaw on Melrose Place.

That’s really funny, Kay. I always look forward to suzie Q’s comments. Never fails to put a smile on my face.
This story with the psycho psycho-analyst is so off-the wall. By the same token, albeit, mot so much for Y&R. Every time I see Dr. Anderson, I am reminded of that eye-doctor in the RESTASIS commercial. They look so much alike. Poor Sharon. Now, poor Sage. Wow, what a nut case!!!

my question is will abby be able to handle this kid????
my answer is i do not think so……………..but we shall see

CeeCee

CeeCee

Hi, elm,
This kid will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. But, hey, the ‘hierarchy’ may surprise us and have Max be the one to meld Ben and Abby together; taking Ashley out of the equation. I still refuse to believe letting go of Ashley is so simple for Ben AND vice versa.

I liked his debut, but the storyline potential for someone of his age is limited, I think he’ll be SORAS’d in the not too distant future.

I thought he meant Abby killed his mother because after he said it he was looking at Abby.

If mom died in Australia, how did he get to WI?

Honeymoon is over Abby. Max is coming to live with you.

When they mentioned Max so much, I wondered what was up.

So glad Stitch’s son has come to town & Stitch finally has a family! It’s about time! It’ll be interesting how Abby handles being a step mom.

Stitch has had a family. His mother and sister were both in GC.

Mill

I know he did, but sister died and who knows where the mother is…she’s on the run somewhere. He finally has his son with him! Should make for an interesting storyline!

Maybe his mom was bringing him to the wedding and got killed in Geonoa City. They did not know who her son was so police took him to station. It was Abby who he said killed his mom not Ben

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Yes, peggy, anything is possible. But, wouldn’t the police have been aware of the accident? I’m sure she would have her ID on her. The cops now know who the boy is, therefore, they would put two and two together. So, Paul called Ben, why not tell him there had been an accident? The accident would have been newsworthy, I would think. Who knows? There’s more to this, and they better have a reasonable explanation….no more of this Mickey Mouse, stuff. On another note, Peggy. Did you notice that now Dylan is not only going on police investigations; he has… Read more »

Just watched clip again and yeah, Max says Abby killed his mom, not Ben.

CeeCee
Guest

Hey, Mo. That’s what I thought, as well, on my post (above). Apparently Abby called her as she was driving; thus, the accident. So Max blames Abby. Lesson learned? I doubt it. Unless it’s my son’s school calling or an emergency, I will not answer my cell. If it is important, I will pull over. This is a reality we all see on the road…….unfortunately.

Cute kid— not buying the premise that his mother would die and they would just ship the kid to GC without notifying Ben first. But even if they did, they wouldn’t go through the police department– children’s aid or a lawyer, but not the cops– so that was a really lame introduction. However now that the kid is here, no doubt he blames Abby because she was on the phone with his mother when the crash happened. He will give Abby all kinds of grief behind Ben’s back— not interested in watching Abby try to play mommy with this child,… Read more »

Same here, Mary. Ben’s not worth it….especially since his heart belongs to Mommy (Ashley).

PS. I don’t buy it either, Mary. That’s why I said he could be a stowaway. But that is starting to sound as a discordant note to myself. What about security? Everything sounds lame to me so far.
Then there’s Dylan, robofakecop. Why can’t I get into this guy??

Abby will leave Stitch. Cant handle life with a readymade kid

Nanci

I actually think now that the reason the writers had such a fast wedding for Abby
and Ben is because of Max coming onboard. Without a tie to Abby, not a ton of
viewers would give a hoot about Ben’s offspring. Not a lot of viewers give a hoot
about Ben to be able to extend any interest in Max, in my opinion. So it will be
all about drama between Abby, Ben, and their new little addition.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Good premise, Nanci. I agree with you. The PTB put the emphasis on Ashley and her medical issue for rushing the wedding. I do like Abby….it’s the cantaloupe that bugs me. If I old only find some interest in this couple….Alas, I cannot.

I could not care less. Stitch just doesn’t do anything for me & neither does Abby. In fact Y&R is boring me to tears right now. Someone is in the hospital ALL THE TIME & gee, another hit & run? Noah barely bumped Billy! The beating he took from the bookie’s thug is what nearly killed him. And if I hear Victor call him Billy Boy or Billy Boy Abbott one more time . . . . It is not cute or funny anymore! And I hope when Jason Thompson takes over as Billy which I just can’t grasp yet… Read more »

While I like this plot twist, it is another example of lazy writers. Do they think any kid would be sent from another country to a police station? There would be lots of red tape to move that kid from Australia to the US, especially with his mother dying! The only thing that could save that goof would be if he came on his own as a hide-a-way! There are so many good writers in the world, so why do they hire people who are ignorant and lack creativity???

GH needs a new little Jake. Kid can’t act. It’s okay to replace him. He was gone for 5 years – we didn’t get attached.

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.
