On last week’s episode of the hit ABC primetime soap, Revenge, viewers learned the paternity of Amanda’s soon-to-be born bundle of joy!  Nick Wechsler who plays Jack Porter on the series, spoke to The Insider.com, and revealed that although his on-screen alter-ego is not to pleased with outcome, he is!   Here are a few excerpts!

Wechsler on that viewers got the sense that Jack did not want the baby to be his:  “Look, this girl just decimated his heart a few times and just ruined his trust in her. He finally got to a place where he could wrap his brain around letting go of this girl that he thinks is the girl that he named his boat after and has been carrying a torch for ever since. He finally was able to let that go, and I think that was best for him. But now that she’s back, I think he feels like that’s like “F*ck you for coming back under these circumstances!” You only took my calls when you needed something and now you’re coming back this late in the game pregnant when you need someone to take care of it? That’s offensive. But Jack’s so decent and loyal, so he’s trying to silence the part of his mind that is screaming. I think he was hoping that it wouldn’t be [his kid] so he could be with [Emily] this girl who he has a huge connection with that he can’t explain. We kissed once, it was amazing, and now I have to go back to pretending I don’t have these feelings for her.”

Wechsler on what he thinks will happen when Jack finds out just what Emily has been up to in the Hamptons:  “That’s a good question. I suspect the writers would want to extract as much drama from that reveal as possible. The tension they’re trying to build with this is that she’s getting so deep into this lie, that if she told the truth now, everyone would be like, “I can never trust you again.” Personally, I think if Emily explained to Jack what she was doing and why he’d come to understand that. Yeah, she swapped identities with someone else and it’s a little out there, a little crazy. But I think once he thought about what happened to her, he’d want her to get revenge.”

Wechsler previews what lies ahead for Jack in upcoming episodes:  “The bar is Jack’s sole method of providing for his family and it causes some desperation, which puts him in some trouble. It sets up a scenario where he gets involved with some of the wrong people.”

So as the drama heats up for the Amanda/Jack/Emily triangle, there are plenty of other revelations and action on an all-new episode of Revenge tonight at 9PMEST/PST on ABC.   Here is the lowdown:  In the episode titled “Confidence”,  the Graysons are back in the spotlight and at the center of a media storm once again, while Emily’s past continues to haunt her.    Watch a preview of tonight’s episode below! Then let us know, are you rooting for a Jack/Emily romance?

GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Addresses Why She Was Not a Part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s ‘Alexis-Centric’ 25th Anniversary Episode

For the past several weeks, savvy General Hospital fans were wondering why on earth was Alexis’ best friend, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), was not a part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s (Alexis) 25th anniversary episode of the ABC daytime drama series, which centered around Alexis saying goodbye to those near and dear before she goes to Pentonville to serve a prison sentence.

After all, Diane and Alexis have been through so much together, that it seemed like a glaring omission. Was Hennesy not asked back for the episode?  The answer came in the form of Hennesy herself via in a response to a fan’s tweet on her being MIA from the episode.

As it turns out, the ever-busy Hennesy was shooting a film in Atlanta and was not available at the time of the tape date of Grahn’s special episode.

 

Carolyn tweeted: “Not their fault, my dear. I was off filming on Atlanta!!! Cuz you know Diane wouldn’t have missed it!”  That came in response to this: “Watched the big @NancyLeeGrahn ep of #GH and I’m perplexed that there was no Diane! @carolynhennesy One of the most fun TV female friendships and she wasn’t there to send her off? Come on you guys @GeneralHospital”

Mystery solved! Carolyn would have gladly been at the GH set that day in a heartbeat, if she could have.

So, happy to know that GH did not forget about Diane for the Alexis-Centric episode, but had to work around it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Renewal Update: Sony and NBC In Talks, Insiders Optimistic While Show Pauses Production

Every year around this time, Days of our Lives renewal has been its own cliffhanger.  With the show taping episodes so far in advance and wrapping their current season, the series paused production and went dark on April 16th, according to TV Line.

Now comes the waiting game and according to a report from Deadline on Wednesday, NBC and Sony are continuing to be in talks to bring the series back for its 57th season. While no one from any camp is officially commenting on the negotiations, their sources are reporting that things do look optimistic, as of now.

The report indicates that in anticipation of a renewal, the producers have been making if-come deals with key cast members in the past few weeks and the writing team is said to be hard at work on potential scripts for the new season.

In the past, DAYS’ renewal had taken several months to pan out, because of how the show’s distributor Sony Pictures Television has to adjust its business model to continue the show without going in the red.

Even though over the years DAYS had declined in the linear ratings, there appears to be a commitment by the studio and NBC to find ways to keep it on the air.

So, are you hopeful that DAYS will survive yet another negotiation for renewal? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
