THIS WEEK ON Y&R: Farewell to Dina As Marla Adams Wraps Her Run

Courtesy/CBS

It’s time for all of us to say our goodbyes to the character of Dina Mergeron in upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless. 

The top-rated CBS Daytime drama has released a promo illustrating the legacy of the character originally created by the late, great Bill Bell.

 

As fans of Y&R know, Dina was married to John Abbott (Jerry Douglas), cheated on him, left the family, and more. Chief among them hiding the truth of Ashley’s paternity for many years.  When Marla Adams returned to the show in 2017 ub recurring capacity through the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline, some of the past pain Dina caused the Abbott children had been re-addressed.

Now, its time for Marla Adams on-screen run to come to its conclusion and the character of Dina.  Adams had first appeared on the show in 1983, and came and went through the years.

Watch the promo below as the show says their farewells to Dina … and how Marla ‘thanks’ all of you!

Will you be watching this week’s Y&R as the Abbott family comes to terms with Dina’s death? Comment below.

I’m going to miss her, and her relationship with all the Abbotts, so very much. What a talent, an what a treat it has been to have had her back as long as we did.

All I have to say is that she better get the Emmy this time because I wasn’t happy when she didn’t get it last time. She played the character so well as we watched her state of mind declining. I can’t wait to see her scenes this week!!!

I hate the character is being killed off, but that’s how Y&R works they kill off it’s great actors/actresses, or the get rid of them like Gina T. – These writers of Y&R have been awesome in the handling of this storyline that I believe could on a bit longer. Marla Adams is have been awesome all these years, to kill her off is awful. Why kill those that are growing old in real life when she is doing great on the show. So sad so wrong. Forget the rating, this is great actresses that gives 100%. Y&R is not… Read more »

Marla Adams/Dina gave a stunning performance BRAVA!
but-
the story was weak, in comparison to
GH’s Alzheimer’s story- that actually took us
on the journey through Alzheimer’s was indeed better written.
Dina/Marla will be missed 🙁
I enjoyed every one of her scenes.

I’m really sad to see Dina and Marla go. She’s a great actress.

I realize there were limitations to finalize the story due to COVID, but the entire necklace home movie addition to the storyline is yet another example of the poor quality of writing on the show. Everyone, multi-millionaires, live n a hotel room, at least they could have come up with condo or townhomes if they must use the “same sets”. Phyllis big success in her life is running a hotel? Chance might become a cop? Paul sent him a text!

I was glad to see Dina finally return to Y&R after being AWOL for so long. However, I was not happy with the Alzheimer’s storyline. The character had way too much history and plot-potential to be given a “one way” plot to her death. John, Brad Carlton, Colleen, Delia, and now Dina. No matter the regime, the writers can’t seem to resist the urge to “kill off” Abbott family members for the mere sake of a plot. The killing off of these characters (especially Colleen) has really damaged the presence of the Abbotts on the show. I often wonder why… Read more »

I noticed it is always an Abbott that dies – and usually benefits a Newman – Colleens’s heart was donated to Victor, Delia’s corneas went to Connor,!

Oh yes, Marla Adams will be missed as Dina. Enjoyed her talent and beauty back in the day as Belle on Secret Storm. She was a force to be reckoned with. Hopefully the Emerald necklace will bring some last moments of happiness to Dina.

Think Katherine Chancellor, grandma Horton etc. Who kills off the last shows true matriach?. Oh, yea, Josh Griffith…

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn to be Featured in Alexis-Centric Episode to Mark Her Upcoming 25 Years on the ABC Daytime Drama

She is a two Daytime Emmy-winning actress, and one of the best that has ever graced the soap genre, and now General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) will have an episode devoted to her, and her soap opera alter-ego, next week on the ABC daytime drama series.

The episode has been scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 7th.

Grahn will celebrate her 25th anniversary with GH in September, but as the imminent milestone draws near, and with Alexis in story getting ready to begin a three-year stint in Pentonville, it sets up plenty of drama for the former legal eagle of Port Charles; who has had an enduring battle with booze.

 

According to Nancy, who spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, “I will say that she (Alexis) knows she can’t stop drinking unless she faces her life as it really is and not as she’s faked it thus far, and she is perhaps forcing a brutal bottom in order for her to rise again from the ashes.”

Viewers can look for Alexis to interact with many characters, plus a brand new character, and her on-screen daughters within the episode.

Grahn added to what fans will see, “I feel like this show is not so much about what Alexis discovers, but how that discovery and resolution will affect the heart of so many who watch it.  I feel that many will relate in a personal way.”

So, excited to see the Alexis-centric episode featuring Nancy? Comment below.

Will tragedy strike again?”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Franco Have Planned For Peter … The Ultimate Revenge?

This week on General Hospital, the story picks back up on the night of the double-wedding debacle for Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).

Last week’s Friday cliffhanger saw Franco (Roger Howarth) taking a crowbar to Peter’s head and knocking him out after realizing the voice in his head was that of Peter’s.

Meanwhile, Maxie who is in the hospital trying to ensure the safety of her unborn baby with Peter, is getting an earful on how far his deception has gone, and from all the people she knows and trusts.  Now, Anna (Finola Hughes) comes to see her God-daughter in the latest promo from ABC.

But the twist that many may, or may not, have seen coming is that Franco has taken Peter and tied him up which looks eerily familiar from when Franco’s mind-mapping took place and he was turned into Drew.

With Franco’s growing brain tumor, what is he capable of doing to Peter? Will he exact the perfect revenge on the guy?

Watch the latest teaser below.

Now weigh-in: what do you think Franco will do next? Share your theories in the comment section.
