Michael, I agree 100% with you on your #1 pick for worst ever moment/decision by producers and writers. It is not only the worst decision of 2010 but of the entire soap history. I wish VH and ESS the very best and hope they win Emmy awrads for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. But, I sincerely wish that CG and JP (formerly on ATWT) should never even be nominated. And, It would be amazing if they are rated the worst ever team in soap history. They compeltely deserve that dishonor after they killed one of the most beautiful… Read more »

I agree 100% with you. LuRe was the best couple and didn’t deserve what JP & CG gave them.

I couldn’t agree more!As a long time ATWT watcher this had to be the worst ending in the History of Soaps! To kill off one half of the best couple EVER on soaps and leave the other half devastated and alone was a slap in the face to all who loved Luke and Reid and their wonderful and unique love story!

I definitely agree with # 1 and # 2. Chris didn’t deserve to live and Reid didn’t deserve to die.

Although in my mind, there was never a train. Reid made it back from Bay City with heart for Chris and Luke and Reid are living happily together.

Michael, I also agree 100% with you on your # 2 pick for worst ever moment/decision by producers and writers. It is absolutely appaling that CG and JP actually killed one of the best characters (Reid) on ATWT, left the best and most loved caharcater (Luke) to a life of perpetual pain, suffering, and misery; and the biggest irony is that all this was done to save probably one of the worst and most boring character (Chris) so that Katie (who changed husbands at the drop of a hat) could have one more man toy to add to her ever… Read more »

Van Hansis was so perfect and so beautiful in those scenes of Luke mourning his boyfriend’s reid death that I can’t fathom it was the worst moment. That’s sure that Luke’s story ended sadly for him, being alone and very depressed, but Van Hansis did an amazing work and for me that was the most memorable moment in the soaps.

It’s not the acting that made it the worst, it was the story of Reid dying that made it the worst.

ESS and Van hit it out the park with their acting and they both deserve an Emmy for it, but there should be no credit given to JP and CG for the “story” to be considered the best of 2010.

ATWT should have allowed Luke to seek comfort with his ex, Noah during the final episode. It didn’t have to mean that he “forgot” Reid, just that Noah could finally be the guy that I (and Luke) fell in love with in the beginning: A standup guy, who would be there during Luke’s time of need.

You have to be kidding!!!!! Luke loved Reid….don’t you understand? You don’t substitute one love with another.Luke would NEVER go back to Noah.Reid and Luke became better for loving each other!, so bite your tongue!

Absolutely not! It was completely inappropriate with the way their relationship had progressed over the past year even before Reid came to town…it started with the election and Mason! Noah had just told Luke that he couldn’t even be friends with him, so for Luke to seek comfort with Noah? No. And Noah kissing him 2 days after Reid’s death and inviting Luke to LA – also completely inappropriate. I can see Luke and Noah remaining friends in the future, but not now. Luke has a lot to work through. Reid’s death was idiotic to begin with, but everything that… Read more »

I’m not sure what you mean by “seek comfort”. Noah did comfort Luke as a friend. That was appropriate given their bond, but if you mean they should have hooked up, then eww. I am a complete Nuke fan, but that would’ve been not-cool so soon after Reid’s death. I hated the ending all around, but given what happened to Reid, it was appropriate that Noah and Luke reconciled as just friends for now.

Michael i definitely agree with #1 & #2. Chris & Katie had zero chemistry together which is ironic considering how many husbands she’s had & had chemistry with every one of them & he was one of the worst written soap characters on there, i don’t know how many times he was written out & recast. Then Luke finally fell in love with a guy who appreciated him for who he was & encouraged him to be himself & love who he is & to not apologize for that & they decided in the middle of the “big” triangle to… Read more »

I’m still crying at this awful ending and the fact that ATWT went off forever.But we should be thankful that we had this glorious story of luke and reid.i loved them, I loved their love story, and I loved the superb acting from Eric and Van.Having Reid die and Luke left alone was cruel and insensitive to the fans.and having Chris live so he and Katie could unite was just so stupid.She still had a small baby….how much did she love Brad if she could get involved with another man.And how many marriages did she have 5, 6, or 1000?who… Read more »

Karen,
I so agree with what you wrote.
Chris and Katie = zero chemistry.
Luke and Reid = off the charts

Since I can’t say anything nice about JP & CG, i’ll just keep my mouth shut about my feelings there.

It’s NOT Chris’ fault that Reid died! As a fan of the Hughes family for many years, including Kim, Bob and CHRIS, etc, I was glad to see them front and center as ATWT wrapped up in a heartbreaking, Emmy-worthy storyline. Why is everyone focusing on trashing Chris, and not recognizing the brilliant performances by Kathryn Hays, Don Hastings, Terri Conn, Ellen Dolan, Scott Holmes, etc? Michael Fairman – you singled out Van Hansis in your best moments of 2010 (rightfully so) but I’m disappointed that you didn’t also make the point to acknowledge the other positives, particularly that this… Read more »

Of course it wasn’t a ‘Reid or Chris’ choice- the writers could easily have had BOTH characters live. And I didn’t want Chris to die- but neither did I want Katie to get stuck in a piss-poor rebound relationship with Chris. ATWT overplayed their hand by acting like Chris and Katie are some epic love story. They’ll be divorced in a year at most. Hopefully Katie cheats on Chris with Simon.

We didn’t want Chris to die, there was no reason for anyone to die because this soap was going off forever.Doesn’t it seem strange that they would destroy the most popular couple in daytime/And for what? To leave us long time viewers with such sad thoughts of a show that was on for 54 years.if anyone in charge had listened to the fans, Luke and Reid would be living together for a long time.I can’t accept the horrible ending so I’m writing my own and it will be done in a few weeks.

Why I feel Chris deserved to die was that he refused to seek treatment for his condition. As a doctor he knew the consequences of his actions, but instead of telling his parents, he went golfing. Are you kidding me? And if Chris wouldn’t have needed a transplant, then Reid would not have been on the RR tracks to get hit by the train. That is why Chris is blamed for Reid’s death (all goes back to his refusing treatment) If it had to be Katie with a new husband (what number will Chris Hughes be) or Luke to finally… Read more »

i was always a Hughes family fan, they’d bring Chris on & he’d be on a year before they’d write him off again, they never knew how to write a great story for Chris that made you want to like him. but what they did at the end of the show made everybody forget the death of Nancy Hughes, a lady who’d uttered the first words on the show & was on the show the whole 54 years when the actress died in real life. the memorial service they did should of been all about her & showed more old… Read more »

I never saw anyone say that Chris “deserved” to die, although in a way, he hid his illness from everyone and as a doctor, that was irresponsible and stupid. I agree, though…neither he nor Reid needed to die. He could have most definitely have gotten his heart some other way. Nancy Hughes (and Helen Wagner, God rest her soul) had died…there didn’t need to be another death for impact. That should have been the focus. Instead, it was almost swept under the rug and didn’t get nearly the attention it should have. She was a legend and her death should… Read more »

No one has said Chris deserved to die. But, Reid should never have been killed; and Luke should never have been left devastated. Going by the majority of viewers and fans opinions; Chris and Katie were no match for Luke and Reid as love interests. And, Chris was one of the most boring characters (also acted very badly); while Luke and Reid were the best and most loved characters (and acted brilliantly). CG and JP made a mockery of the ATWT loyal fan base by ending a wonderful love story in a horrendous manner. If they knew that Luke and… Read more »

Katie and Chris (probably the worst pair on ATWT) definitely did not deserve a happy ending at the expense of Luke and Reid (perhaps the best couple of all soaps in 2010). If you have genuine love for someone, you don’t jump into another man’s arms in less than a year of your of beloved’s death (as in Katie-Brad-Chris story). Thank God! that CG and JP, as stupid as they are, at least had the sense to not push Luke into Noah’s arms immediately after Reid’s death.

I agree Michael ….When Reid died and Luke lost the love of his life was the worst soap moment of 2010 !!!!!There was no reason for it because this wonderful soap of 54 years was going off forever.I know if had stayed on TPTB would not let this hot love story continue.We all know that, but why not give Luke and Reid a happily ever after like everyone else.To me they showed more love, had more chemistry and were wonderful to watch. Seeing them smile at each other, be in each others space,helping each other was mesmerizing to watch.Eric and… Read more »

I also agree with #4 … OLTL getting rid of Kish was horrible. At least they got custody of Sierra-Rose before they disappered. I have a feeling that some day Sierra-Rose will be aged and will seen again, and hopefully will bring her dads with her.

well said….the abrupt and unexpected ending of the Kyle and Oliver love story was the worst mistake of 2010 and one that OLTL/ABC will never be forgiven for…hopefully as you say they will have the good sense to bring Kish and their daughter back again and most especially the amazing Brett Claywell and Scott Evans….I miss them so much…

I’m going to completely agree with Michael’s choice for #2 and #1 worst moments. Just reading all of the comments regarding Michael’s spot on choices almost got me crying again. I still miss ATWT, Van Hansis, Eric Sheffer Stevens. I’ll never forget the heartbreaking scenes where Luke (the mesmerizing and the amazingly talented Van Hansis) said good-bye to Reid (the equaling mesmerizing and the amazingly talented Eric Sheffer Stevens) as Reid breathed his last breath. I was bawling so hard that even thinking about it now, I’m starting to tear up just writing this. Chris Goutman was just picked by… Read more »

Oh! I agree with you 100%. I am in the seventh becuse CG has been named the worst show killer of all for 2010. In fact CG and JP should be named the worst show killers in all of soap history. I wish that the two stupidest beings on this earth will bite the dust in each and every of their endeavors (if someone is sympathetic enough to include them).

Fath and Lavosier are awful so it’s great that they’re on this list. On Air On Soaps team should have included Franco’s hilariously bad, “artsy,” pretentious death on GH. It’s expected that the On Air On Soaps team mentioned how the same gender couples were treated on OLTL and ATWT since that upset a large amount from their audience. But at the very least those soaps actually had same gender couples that showed affection, even if they were dumped from the canvas or had a storyline their audience hated. On Air On Soaps should have put B&B on their worst… Read more »

As a staunch Luke/Noah fan, I still agree with Michael completely on #1. ATWT left its three gay characters dead or alone, while nearly every straight couple got a happy ending. No matter how any of us feel about the Luke/Reid romance, the storyline was badly mishandled, and the ending was cheap and ridiculous. The show belittled everything the Luke/Noah romance meant to so many people for years, shortchanged a major legacy character, and put far too much emphasis on a brand-new character (however interesting or well-liked). Yes, the actors (all three of them) did amazing work, and Van Hansis… Read more »

The point? To get Van Hansis crying, because he’s brilliant at it. I mean, it was a cheap thrill, in my opinion. And a very, very stupid point, because he’s brilliant at everything he did on that show anyway. They didn’t need to do this in particular, to get a great performance, or a dramatic ending out of the gay storyline. I would have much rather had something character-driven, and about Luke’s REAL emotions about his new love Reid, and his first love, Noah. Not what Luke felt like just because Reid was now dead. They turned Reid into an… Read more »

Yes, yes, and YES to every word of this.

Seriously, the way Reid was lionized after his death reminded me of many years ago when my great-aunt died and a preacher who never met her eulogized her by saying she never complained, never gossiped. Er, yes she did. She loved griping and she LOVED gossiping! And the people who knew her knew that about her. They didn’t know that person the preacher was talking about. That’s what ATWT did with Reid. Terrible, terrible storytelling, saved, as usual, by amazing acting all around.

I agree with you 100%. I don’t think the LURE and NUKE fans will ever understand why CG and JP decided that the best and most loved character (Luke) on ATWT had to be left alone, miserable, and devastated in the end. This is the worst ever ending in soap history for a character who was perhaps one of the best in daytime. If CG and JP have any shame and pride left in them, they should never work in soap production and writing. I pity the shows that will hire them, because they are sure to bite the dust… Read more »

This truly was the worst ending in soap history.I watched the death scene only once and i couldn’t watch it ever again.To see Luke so devastated and alone was sickening.i cried so much that i felt like I was about to die. But Vans acting was so amazing as always.The last few weeks of this show was so rushed it was hard to watch.Didn’t a 54 year old show deserve better/And didn’t the best love story deserve a happy ending too/What a disgrace!

I don’t know what all the fuss is about.Everyone is entitled to their opinion and are allowed to speak to their opinion of who,what and why the characters on soaps live or die, etc. Unfortunately, the writers and producers control it all. And, I wonder how much thay are concerned what you or I think. It’s tough when we get so invested with the characters.

Um, who cares about the token gays ATWT introduced in the last few years?? Soap operas were built on romance and love, not gay. I am more disturbed that LISA didn’t even have a scene in the finale. Tom and Margo were reduced to hand-wringing pathetic parents with no life beyond that of their absent children. Lily and Holden acted like random strangers. Barbara spent her last moments dancing like a moron with Henry, instead of relating with her family. This show had a year to prepare for its demise, and it was disappointing on every level, the LEAST of… Read more »

Van Hansis as Luke was one of the best stories on ATWT…not to mention that he is such a fabulous actor.The finale of this wonderful show left a lot to be desired in every way. Soap operas are about love and romance and about real life.And those that are gay are part of real life.The Luke and Reid storyline was so well done.Unfortunately the writers, the producers, CBS ,P& G and TPTB had no clue as to how a soap of 54 years should end!

The worst couple I have ever seen. The two of them are horrible. Not only for what they did but, I don`t see any chemistry between them. Sharon is out of her mind.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
