Gina you are awesome and your nom is well deserved

Agreed. Also, I think Billy and Phyllis have a lot more chemistry than Billy and Victoria, who, in my opinion, have zero, zilch, nada chemistry.

I am rooting for Nancy Lee Grahn and John Aniston the most (: Laura Wright was great but Nancy was better imo. Billy Flynn for Best Actor. Kate Mansi for Supporting Actress. Bryan Craig and Lexi Ainsworth for Younger Actor/Actress. B&B for Series and Writing; Days for Directing.

Mostly I am happy with the nominees. Not thrilled that Jeffrey Vincent Parise is nommed; I felt that Jess Walton was SUPPORTING, not Lead; not thrilled that Vincent Irizarry was nommed instead of Jason Thompson…

Glad we will get to see the show live this year!

I would love to know how the hell Maurice Benard was not nominated? Just another reason to believe these awards are fixed! The Bi Polar s/l was one of the best pieces of work on daytime! Bryan, Laura and yes Maurice were fabulous! Maurice was cheated imo. Very unhappy fan

Maurice Benard has to nominate himself/put himself in the game .

Didn’t know where else to put this question but why, Michael Fairman, are there barely any posts about story for the Bold & Beautiful? It’d be great to get more discussions going for this soap. Recent fan and I love it!

Laura, I had read you owned a vineyard. is this sold nationally or only locally ?

I read the comment that said,”We will be able to see it live this time”, yet no one has said how? No mention of any station or site is advertised as one people can go to & watch it?

Eric

They have not reveal anything yet, all David Michaels said, that it is certain that we would be able to see it live, either on a network or livestream.

Really sad I didn’t listen to this live. But man I loved every minute of this! Thank you Michael & thank you for having Laura!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
