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 »

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
