Former General Hospital EP Wendy Riche, who has joined The Bay team as Executive Consultant and is now an executive producer, told On-Air On-Soaps about the series streaming on Amazon Prime: “It’s a great way for people who have seen The Bay for people to see it again and refresh their memories, and it’s a wonderful way to introduce it to new people. ”

While you can binge The Bay and see all the action and the characters again, a new season will be coming viewers way soon.  EP and creator, Gregori Martin related, “We have a new writing team (Ex-GH’s Karen Harris, EX-DAYS. Anne Schoettle, EX-ATWT Julie Poll) which I am really excited about, and a new acting coach, and this all came from Wendy Riche.  We have a new music score, too.  Wendy is bringing the magic of GH to The Bay.”  Riche added, “There is a lot of magic at The Bay that people will want to be involved in.  I am glad to be there. I love Gregori, and the cast.”

Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge B&B, and John, The Bay) was enthusiastic about The Bay’s future and the addition of Riche to the team and upcoming season: “Wendy is bringing such a different dimension to the stuff we have been doing and we are changing that.  You are going to find out all the different layers of my character, and it gives me the opportunity to do something I have never done before.   You know my history, and you know Wendy’s history.  We have a lot more freedom, and expression and ability to build these shows.   When you see us after the next season has aired, you will go, ‘Whoa!'”

I just started watching “The Bay” on Amazon and I like what I’ve seen so far.

It was very difficult to find, though, as it did not show up when I did a search for “The Bay”. I had to do several different searches including “The Bay The Series” and “The Bay The Soap Opera” before it showed up on the Amazon Prime search screen results on my TV.

I tried searching for it on Amazon Prime with no luck at all. I checked each and every result that had The Bay in it . Can you tell me how you found it? Thanks!

Go to search specifically on Amazon Video. Type in “the Bay” then on the drop down bar select Prime and there it is.

What a shame that ALL MY CHILDREN couldn’t make it as an on-line series thanks to the incredible mishandling of both ABC and Prospect Park – before anyone yells at me and says “get over it” I AM now over it but I still wish things could have worked out
differently.

It’s such a fabulous show. Every soap fan needs to be watching and supporting it.

Not bad. I’ll keep watching to see if it holds my interest. But OMG since Ronn Moss left B&B I had forgotten how bad his one note acting was.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
