Last evening, On-Air On-Soaps spoke with The Bay executive producer Gregori Martin, who informed us of new casting changes and additions to upcoming episodes/chapters of his web series with some very familiar faces from daytime!

Chief among them is none other than former The Bold and the Beautiful star, Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge), who will play the new role of  former D.A. John Blackwell.  Meanwhile, Judi Evans (Adrienne, DAYS) will portray his wife,  Katherine.  They are the parents of Damien Blackwell played by Erik Fellows, who come to Bay City with a secret agenda against the Garrett clan!

B&B’s returning Sean Kanan (Deacon) is also on board, and will replace Brody Hutzler (Ex-Patrick, DAYS) in the role of Press Secretary Kenneth Allen.  And Patrick Darbo (Ex-Nancy, DAYS) will play a “GH Ruby Anderson type” as Mickey, who runs a small eatery called “Patrick’s Roadhouse”.

The Bay will continue principal photography beginning later this week featuring some of these new cast members with new episodes streaming in May.

What do you think of the casting additions to The Bay? Let us know!

I’m happy for Sean Kanan, as the writers did a terrible job writing for AJ Quartermaine this time around, so Sean decided to leave and head over to the Bold and the Beautiful. I’m happy for all of the daytime actors who are also working on The Bay. Good luck, everyone.

It is true that AJ was always written badly but I thought Sean Kean was going to Bold and the Beautiful. I wonder if he can do both.

I’m sick of the sour grapes that Ron Moss has for the Bold & the Beautiful. The guy didn’t like the contract and left PERIOD! Why can’t he let it be. I love the new Ridge and I really wish Ron Moss would just go play his music and leave the soap HE LEFT alone.

I love the new Ridge also but must admit as a new viewer to B&B, I am appalled at how all of the characters have inner bread. It is hilarious and often sickening. I recall seeing previews of B&B when Ron Moss was on the soap. It seems that there was a mass exit from B&B but they have done well with carrying on.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
