Here is your handy soap opera viewing schedule over the holiday! On Thanksgiving Day, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless are all pre-empted.

However, General Hospital will be airing on encore episode from September 11, 2012 when at the hospital Monica, Patrick and Steve work hard to help patients all over Port Charles who are affected by Jerry’s deadly virus.  Edward Quartermaine arrives and we see him bestow life and gratitude upon Emma.  Meanwhile McBain, Dante and Lulu work together to defuse the bomb rigged to the anti-serum.   Sonny and Shawn help Alexis escape as Jax tries to take down his brother Jerry.  At the end of the episode, as a shoot-out occurs near the boat dock, Dante and Lulu’s kiss is interrupted by an explosion.   GH chose to re-air this episode in honor of John Ingle’s passing as this was the final heart-tugging performance of Ingle as Edward Q.   Then on Thanksgiving night make sure to head on over to SOAPnet, (if you get it in your cable outlet and area) and watch five classic episodes of GH’s Quartermaine Thanksgivings called “Quartermania”!

Next on Friday, November 23rd get ready for a blast from the past! A classic Days of Our Lives episode will be airing and it features Eileen Davidson (as Kristen and Susan), Drake Hogestyn (John), Deidre Hall (Marlena) and others.  The episode, originally aired on June 24, 1997, centered around John and Kristen’s wedding day; only Susan has taken the bride’s place. Meanwhile, Marlena and Kristen are unconscious in a secret room at the DiMera mansion, succumbing to fumes from a gas leak.  Meanwhile, The Young and the Restless will air an encore classic episode that features Victor and Nikki’s wedding from September5, 2002.  Both General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful will be pre-empted that day.

So soapers, as you prepare your Turkey with all the stuffings, then if you feel too stuffed to move the next day, which classic episodes are you most interest in watching? Let us know!

The episodes they chose were so-so; loved the one with Lucy Coe and Sigmund! One of those must have been a JFP show where she hired Jensen Buchanan, A Martinez and Linda Dano. Kinda strange!!! I must have stopped watching that year because I don’t remember any of them being on there. Loved seeing Stuart Damon and the classy Anna Lee though in those! Could have done without the more current stuff with Carly/Jax though …

Am right now enjoying Y&R’s classic from 2002. WOW! You can see from this perspective how MAB ruined the show in the successive years. SORAS and other silly plot devices destroyed so many rich and wonderful characters. Thank goodness for the opportunity to look back.

What a difference ten years makes!! MAB really destroyed “Y & R” when you look back like this!! I have seen much improvement since her departure especially in terms of character-driven story, something the show has been lacking for many years!

Enjoyed watching the episode on CBS-HD as well for once I/O on SoapNet and in standard def.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
