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 think you’re right. This kid will probably prove to be a challenge….putting a wedge between the newlyweds….tee-hee, I hope so.

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.

I’m pretty sure Max killed his mom. He’ s an evil child.

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.

CeeCee

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!!!

CeeCee

Are you rubbing your hands together, su?…..lol, I am…. Maybe Ben will move to Australia and leave Abby behind.

I’ve been expecting him to show up some how. Glad he finally made it.

So glad that Stitch’s son is in Genoa City. Hope he stays.

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.

Brett

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.

Timmm

GOOD! I hope he guilt’s his dad into moving to Australia PERMANENTLY!

CeeCee

Hey, my Timmm.
I just read your comment after sending mine to su. You and I actually said the same thing. Oh, boy!! What do you make of that? Ha!…..later.

Timmm

Great BEHINDS think alike! Ha ha ha!

@Timmm.
And I wonder why I am so into you. It’s answers like that!!!!!!

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.

Mill

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.

Mo
Mo

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

Mill
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!

peggy
peggy

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
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 also graduated to taking notes. Who the heck does that? He is not a lawman. As I said….Mickey Mouse stuff. Civilians are now running the GCPD.

Mo
Mo

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

CeeCee
CeeCee

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, so this gives me another reason to FF through scenes with these characters in them.

CeeCee
CeeCee

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

CeeCee
CeeCee

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??

Kathy Simpson

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

Nanci
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
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.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Correction: if I could only find…..

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 he will be a tall strong Billy who can look Victor in the eye & behave like a grown MAN instead of these weak little billy boys (as Victor says) they’ve had over the years-no offense to any of the actors but this character needs to grow up.

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.

Chicago Police Believe That Jussie Smollett May Have Been “Active Participant” In His Own Attack

Saturday has brought with it some major twists and developments into the alleged assault on Empire star, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon) through multiple reports.  Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the on-going investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe actor Jussie Smollet paid two men to orchestrate an assault on him.

The men in question, who are brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, were originally arrested on Wednesday, but released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited: “Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete.”  Reports also say that the two men are fully cooperating with law enforcement.

Of note is: that the brothers are of Nigerian descent and teach online body building classes. The Chicago Tribune reports that Smollett follows the brothers’ workout page on Instagram.   One brother reportedly appeared in an episode of Empire, but was not credited it for it.

Smollett’s attack happened in the early hours of January 29th on the streets of Chicago, when Smollett told authorities that two men were “yelling out racial and homophobic slurs.”  He also noted that one of the attackers put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

The sources told CNN there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at an Ace Hardware store in Chicago.

“The new direction of the investigation is now based on the premise that Mr. Smollett was an active participant in the incident,” a law enforcement source close to the situation told Deadline.

In a statement from Chicago PD late Saturday: “We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation. We’ve reached out to the ‘Empire’ cast member’s attorney to request a follow-up interview.”

So, what do you believe at this juncture?  Do you think Smollett would stage a hate crime on himself? Could the police just not have found the true culprits? Share your theories on this developing story.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

Doug Davidson Back To The Young and the Restless

Big news Y&R fans, longtime veteran and fan favorite, Doug Davidson is back filming scenes at CBS Daytime’s top-rated soap as Paul Williams.

The news broke when Eric Braeden tweeted a picture of himself with Davidson that simply stated: “He’s Back”

A spokesperson for Y&R did confirm that Davidson (who had been taken off contract by the series a year ago back in January, which caused quite the social media stir) was back on set filming on Friday.  That episode in which Davidson is in will air on March 25th.

Davidson tweeted: “Okay! So, the cat is out of the bag. NONE of any of this would happen without all of your undying loyalty, support and kindness. All of you are the reason “Paul” is back on the canvas. THANK YOU SO MUCH. has been incredible the entire time. A huge thanks to him as well!”

Doug is a Daytime Emmy winner, who started on the daytime drama series back in 1978.  Y&R did receive pushback under Mal Young’s (Ex-EP and head writer) regime for its misuse of long-standing vets.

Braeden also tweeted with the photo: “I want to thank from SONY, JOSH GRIFFITH and TONY MORINA, for turning the ship around!!! Steve made an executive decision a few months ago and we want to thank him for it!”

So, excited to hear that Davidson is back taping at Y&R? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
