If you missed this past Thursday’s night’s Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman holiday episode, you can hear the replay of the broadcast right here in the  audio player above.  For the last episode of 2018, Michael welcomes his special guest co-host, Daytime Emmy-winner, currently tearing it up on Days of our Lives, Greg Rikaart (Leo).

To get listeners in the yuletide spirit, the themed-broadcast featured special guests: General Hospital’s James Patrick Stuart (Vslentin), just departed General Hospital cast member, and soon-to-be-seen in the new Freeform series Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki), and One Life to Live favorite and icon, the incomparable Robin Strasser (Ex-Dorian).

During this festive night of chat, James Patrick Stuart was the first guest talking with Michael and Greg while on his way to the GH Holiday Party.  James filled listeners in on playing the scenes that aired this past week where Valentin pours his heart out to Nina (Michelle Stafford), and the two come back together, but Valentin’s secret (that he hired Sasha to pose as Nina’s long-lost daughter), is a definitive threat to their newfound happiness.  In addition, James talks about the release of his Christmas song on You Tube, his rendition of O Little Town of Bethlehem, and his upcoming appearance at the GH Fan Festival with several members of the cast at Elvis’ Graceland, the weekend of January 18-20.

Next, soap icon, Robin Strasser called-in to Soap Nation Live from New York City.  Robin talked about her collaboration over the years on-screen with Erika Slezak (Viki) as one of soap opera’s all-time classic duos, how much she misses, and the fans miss One Life to Live, exiting a part you have played for many years and moving on with your life, a key David (Tuc Watkins) and Dorian scene on Prospect Park’s reboot of One Life, and so much more. Robin also answered questions from listeners who called-in.

Later, Hayley Erin joins Soap Nation Live!, where she discussed: Kiki’s brutal exit from GH at the hands of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom), how her on-screen GH mom, Maura West (Ava) delivered a gut-wrenching performance when Ava found out her daughter was dead, and what it has been like taping her new show, PPL: The Perfectionists.  In addition, Hayley answers questions from listeners who are missing her on the GH canvas.

Throughout the show, Greg and Michael chatted, about Greg’s performances as DAYS’ Leo Starke, the interloper in Sonny and Will’s relationship, who has insinuated himself into their lives via blackmail.  Greg previews what will go down on the Christmas episode of Days, and how there could be changes ahead in the New Year for Leo, while he continues to be a wrecking ball in the lives of the Kiriakis family and more.

In our staple Game Show trivia segment, a lucky caller, who answers Elvis Presley trivia in celebration of GH’s upcoming Graceland event, won some GH swag.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
