In a tough episode of All My Children, Monday’s installment of the beloved series (available on Hulu and iTunes), had more than enough drama to have you hanging on to your seats!

Debbi Morgan (Angie) showed once again why she is a Daytime Emmy winner in moving moments when Jesse (Darnell Williams) comes clean to Angie about the plight of her missing daughter, Cassandra (Sal Stowers)!  And then we are taken for a look at the world of human sex trafficking, as Cassandra is drugged and being forced to drink to loosen her up so she can be useful to Yuri and Vlad inside the Gentlemen’s Club!

Cara (Lindsay Hartley) reveals what she did with her and David’s (Vincent Irizarry) baby!  Yes, she says she had an abortion!  JR is diagnosed with Retrograde Amensia, and cannot recall the night of the shooting five years ago.  AJ (Eric Nelsen) goes to visit his dad and JR does not recognize him, devastating AJ!  Meanwhile, Bianca (Eden Riegel) is concerned what will happen if Miranda (Denyse Tontz) finds out she was the product of her rape by Michael Cambias many years ago!

Watch today’s AMC below!  Then let us know what you thought of the sex-trafficking story? Cara aborting her and David’s baby?  And, JR’s medical diagnosis!

Great episode! This story is rather engaging. Two weeks ago, I had no interest in Cassadra, but she’s already becoming one of my favorites. All because of the strong writing and especially to Sal Stowers, who is amazing!!! How surreal that the Cleveland story broke when it did. I had no idea that things like this happened. Hats off to Agnes Nixon.

Tales from the Darkside…OLTL and AMC! Good or Bad…depends on how you look at it! After nearly 50 years of watching soaps im nearly done! GH has been a bit boring the last week and at times felt like two different soaps…too many characters at the moment…but now seems to be improving with todays episode. GH is the only serial left that keeps me a soap fan. OLTL showed promise but hasnt really hooked me…ill tune in once in awhile hoping for improvement and hopefully some storys will be resolved…like what happen to Victor for the full year he was… Read more »

I understand that human and sex trafficing are a huge problem… but I don’t need or want to see it on daytime or what we are calling “anytime”. Let cable or night time deal with it if they must. I was liking AMC… but may will be skipping through this story line. I don’t need or want that kind of drama. There’s a reason why I like the Cassadine’s so much more. The campy nature of the Ice Princess story line is much more preferable than this painful to watch story line. I hope it is short lived or I… Read more »

Oh, please-grow up, will you? I’m in no way defending sex trafficking, but this is the stuff we were promised. Could you not handle domestic violence storylines, either? The world is a strange place-deal with it

You can always skim past that part if you are so uncomfortable with it.Before you know it Cassandra will have a new and hopefully happier story.

This is characteristic of All My Children. They’re always the 1st soap and touch the real life stories of today. If you’re an AMC fan you already know that.

The cast of AMC is bringing it! So many good performances. Cassandra’s storyline is gritty and intense and I love that. I know some fans are complaining that the show is going too far with the content but soaps have always been suggestive. It’s just that now they don’t have to be so watered down. To the fans who are complainig if you want G rated shows watch the disney channel.

I don’t think that Cara aborted the baby, I think the baby was put up for adoption or she has the baby in the care of relatives. As for Cassandra’s story, they should have introduced the character to us first, or rather re-introduced the character to us (since it’s a re-cast) and let us get to know and like the character and THEN bring on the Kidnap caper. I think it was thrust at us a little too quickly, but I do love Angie and Jesse as played by Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams and I realize they need (and… Read more »

“ALL MY CHILDREN” is back! 1. Vincent Irizzary – “Thank You”. 2. Debbi Morgan – BIG 2nd. Huge. AJ – give props to = huge endoresement. AJ – per Adam… is showing his Spirit – his chutzpa??? as it were…. AJ & Miranda are going to work. this pair… as best friends…. grew up brother and sister… a potential pairing in the works… I can’t complain… ie: demographics… these two can act. AJ is ? the son of Miranda… and JR. his grandfathers are Adam and Dr. David Hayward… WOW ! ? ! ? talk about potential for growing a… Read more »

Zach is already a father. He’s Ian’s dad and he raised Spike, and yet no one on AMC chooses to remember that. It has been a huge part of who Zach is and now this version of AMC is erasing that. Zach doesn’t need to be grounded by suddenly discovering he’s Miranda’s dad. He’s already a dad and yet AMC chooses to ignore it. When someone tells me that AMC honors and remembers history, I have to laugh at how they’ve turned Zach Slater, family guy who would die for his family, into…this person I don’t know,about whom viewers forget… Read more »

I hear you… I thought, for nuAMC.. they could possibly have Miranda as….

so Zach could have something his own….

since it may well be.. that Kendell and her children.. his…. are MIA.

Well, I said I would give it a couple of episodes before I gave a definitive opinion and now I’ve done that. I read other people’s comments and now I believe that people do drink Kool Aid or really have no lives whatsoever. This show absolutely stinks!!! It was an effort to watch. Save Vincent, Debbie and Darnell,and a highly wasted Thor, unbearable to watch. The stories are thin, very, very thin and very, very boring. A bunch of dull and boring teeny boppers and all of you old timers, left over from our beloved old AMC, buying into this… Read more »

I totally agree with you. I still plan to watch for a couple of months just to see if it improves. I have noticed that a lot of good shows have slow starts. The original AMC cast still has chemistry. The new actors appear to be fish out of water. Chemistry takes time. I feel like I am watching a nickelodeon show. The script sounds like a 12 tear old wrote it most the time. They have really dumbed the show down. I am glad to see that the cursing has stopped. I just fast forward through AJ and Miranda… Read more »

If you don’t like the show fine but don’t trash others that do. I think AMC is awesome and so do many other people. I’m not a “kool aid drinker”. Just because you say something is bad it doesn’t mean it’s a fact.

This is ridiculous.The sets look amazing just as nice or better than anything on GH and other network soaps.The new kids do take a little getting used to but they are ok.I’ld rather watch these stories than the ones with stupid satin slayers,poison peanut butter banana pancakes ,or Jane Erica’s aweful twin.It will be nice when Erica and Tad return.Looking forward to Miranda and Erica interaction.

I give AMC high marks for being a 1/2 hour show…

you mention… save for… Vincent, Debbi, and Darnell…. well … they pretty much fill 1/2 of that 1/2 hour.

and… AJ and Miranda… are demographics driven… and… i believe AJ, has the talent to carry off huge story… which is where it looks like it’s going. and yes… sometimes it would appear that Miranda.. is, shall we say… imitating Erica…at that younger age…

for the two week run….

it’s still better than most all of prime time and everything else.

lets support our soaps.

They just broke up a real sex trafficking story in Boston MA. they kept the girls from other countries . It happens. Usually they are smarter than to take the police captains daughter.but without that.no story. I hadn’t watched AMC in years.Since Miranda was a new baby kidnapped.etc, That Babe cleared us all fro watching her being best friends with Bianca and misunderstood ??? YUCK turned it offI like Miranda and aj. I love Jesse and Angie returned for a while because they did, but tiic ruined it again. I am giving the show a chance, didn’t think I would… Read more »

I was probably living under a rock because i had NO IDEA that AMC and OLTL were returning. So you can imagine my surprise when i was flipping through HULUplus and saw the new eppies. My first. Inclination was to immediately tune into OLTL and see what was happening. I watched the first episode half way through and decided to tune out. To be fair I wasnt really drawn into it at first. The opening was kind of lackluster. Snoop lion’s call back “brand new staaaaaart” made me start going around all day singing “brand new faaaaaart!” I did enjoy… Read more »

Thank you Kathy for the validation. I didn’t comment in order to ‘trash’ anyone, tho it seems that way. America is already dumbed down enough, we don’t need such banal shows to further this movement. This kind of show is from back in the 80’s. And in the 80’s, I thought it was horrid as well. Dallas, Dynasty, etc. And women had to be in front of their TV’s in order to not miss a nano-second of those awful shows. This is the same thing, except different demographic and no glamour. You said it, ‘you can’t go home again’. It’s… Read more »

I like AMC from years ago. It had a mix of younger actors and more of the ones that have been on for years like(Adam , Brook, etc…) Now it seems to me the young actors have it over the older actors. Not a fan of AJ…I alway’s liked Jessie,Angie,Jackson,Brook,Adam,Tad,Dixie,Palmer,The Martin Family,Tara , Phil etc! And Trevor was my favorite (Uncle Porkchop). Maria ,Julia. Which some these actors are no longer on . That’s when I really enjoyed AMC. It’s okay now but, it isn’t the same. I think they have it aimed at a younger crowd now.

Am loving the new AMC! A mix of the old along with the new. Yes Miranda can appear to be a childish brat but you need one of those on any soap lol. AJ the lovelorn boy who grew up with her, a kind heart but a hot head more of his dad in him then he would admit. Thorsten always a keeper but need Kendall and those boys back!!!! Angie/Jessie forever with each other in spite of how Jessie will still keep truths from her every time. Ok nothing changed there. Cassandra did not know nothing of this new… Read more »

Everyone has a right to their opinion. What you are hearing is the sadness that the AMC that we loved is so different. We tolerate a lot in the soap opera world. My husband was watching AMC with me and he was wondering who Dixie, JR, and AJ were. When I explained that it was a mother, son, and grandson, he started laughing. I am trying to ignore the fact that Dixie has an 18 year old grandson. I have watched AMC from the beginning so I have a right to state my opinion. I will continue to watch and… Read more »

I cant believe anyone is putting all my children and one life to live down. I am so excited everyday to wake up, and watch both of these fantastic shows with my son. He loves them too. I only wish they could be one hour shows again. They were taken off of abc, because no one was watching them, and now out of some miracle, we get them back again. Yes, their somewhat different, yet also very much the same. As far as recast goes, even when they were on the network , we would have to deal with recast,… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
