LISTEN TO THE BROADCAST: Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman with Co-Host Kimberly McCullough & Guests: Finola Hughes, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Gina Tognoni, Galen Gering, Minae Noji & Michael Sutton!

Last night on the August edition of Soap Nation Live with Michael Fairman, we welcomed our very special in-studio co-host General Hospital’s Kimberly McCullough (Robin) for a lively, entertaining, and revealing jam-packed broadcast.

The two-hour show kicked-off with Michael chatting with Kimberly about Robin’s return this week to the ABC soap opera and what it means for the relationship of Patrick and Robin and much more!

Next, the first guest of the night, Finola Hughes (Anna) of General Hospital joined Soap Nation Live! where she and Kimberly talked about working with each other, being directors, their favorite Anna and Robin scenes and much more! And then in a surprise call-in to Kimberly, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) joined us on the line in the most endearing and cutest moment of the broadcast.  Hearing the Scorpio gals all chatting together was quite the moment!

Later, two-time Daytime Emmy winner Gina Tognoni of The Young and the Restless joined the show for her segment discussing her highly anticipated return to daytime in the coveted role of Phyllis Summers, and what fans can look forward to when she premieres next Monday on the August 11th episode of the CBS soap opera. Gina also had some fun with us with the fact that both she, and former Phyllis Michelle Stafford (now Nina GH) premiered on their new soap homes in comatose states with their characters!

Then in a heartfelt moment, Kimberly’s former on-screen love interest, Michael Sutton (Stone) taped a special message and interview sharing his thoughts on working with Kimberly in the important AIDS storyline as Stone and Robin.  We played it back as a surprise to Kimberly on the air, and you will hear her reaction!

Next, we welcomed Galen Gering (Rafe) of Days of our Lives to Soap Nation Live!  Galen discussed the state of Rafe’s love life where the guy finds himself in a bit of the doghouse after Rafe slept with Kate … while he really seemingly loves Jordan!  In addition, Kimberly asks Galen about all those random shirtless scenes.  Plus we discuss how DAYS tapes so far ahead that they just finished apparently finished taping New Years episodes.

After our Kimberly McCullough/Robin Scorpio Game Show Trivia segment where one lucky fan won tickets to all the GH individual fan events at the upcoming Fall Getaway Orlando event, the broadcast closed when Kimberly welcomed her dear friend Minae Noji (Ex-Kelly, GH and GH: Night Shift) to the show where we bantered about Minae’s role in the motion picture Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles out today, and playing the sex addicted OB/GYN Dr. Kelly Lee!

Listen to the latest episode of Soap Nation Live after the jump! Then let us know what was your favorite part of the broadcast!

We all love Kimberly, the actress….some of us do not like the character (s) portrayed by actors.
Please , let us not confuse or blend reality with fiction. We love our soaps, including the players, otherwise we would not watch or post our likes and dislikes. I am very happy for your positive intake and output. Kudos.

I knew Levi was a bum! He has the Aztec necklace. He was just using Maxi. I hope the wedding doesn’t happen. I can’t stand him and dumb hair-do.. Goodbye to you Levi!

Fun show, thanks. I’m glad Galen is getting to be involved in a storyline where he gets to be a bit naughty, he’s so whiter than white most of the time.

There will be a Deimos Kiriakias sighting next week on NBC’s Days of our Lives, and viewers will get to see Daytime Emmy winner, Vincent Irizarry, back in this bad boy role.

In story, MarDevil (Deidre Hall) decides its time to resurrect some of the Salem deceased, and from the looks of it will choose not so nice-ones to wreak a bit of havoc on the residents of the town.

As DAYS fans recall, back in 2017, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) killed Deimos when he set out to drug everyone at a major party with the hallucinogen Halo all in his effort to steal a a valued amulet.

Irizarry confirmed his return via Facebook by simply stating: “Heeeeere’s Deimos! 👿

Now, who else will be stirring up trouble from beyond the grave on Halloween week on Days? Share your thoughts below and if you are excited to see Vincent back in Salem for the spookiest time of the year!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
