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…

THE BACHELORETTE: ‘Still To Come’ Promo Leaves Viewers Pondering with Its Editing

“A shocking arrival, tough decisions, emotional exits, and budding romances … don’t miss all this and more as The Bachelorette continues,” are the log lines the ABC reality-dating series foreshadows in its latest promo; as the back-half of its season is about to get underway.

After Monday’s night’s episode, this latest promo was revealed and for ‘Bachelor Nation’ some key moments where within it.  Problem is, you don’t know what is actually what, because the way the producers edit these, a reaction and a response could be from two different scenes or moments, and they are, of course, all out of order. That includes the narrative VO lines spoken by the contestants or ‘Bachelorette’ Katie Thurston, and how it may not match what you actually see play out when it airs within an episode.

So with all that, here is what was notable:

It appears that dad to a toddler, Michael A., will exit the show after receiving a heartbreaking Facetime call with his son, who says to him, “Maybe Daddy doesn’t want to see me”.  But does he leave?

Someone shows up at Katie’s door that she is very surprised to see – we are guessing it’s someone with some key intel to throw a wrench into one of Katie’s relationships.

Since late arrival Blake is seen speaking to his sister, one can assume he received one of the coveted ‘Hometown’ slots.

Favorite to win Katie’s heart, actor Greg Grippo, seems to get highly emotional and walks off the resort, that is followed by Katie seemingly following him angry.  But is she going after him, or talking to someone else?

Later, Katie announces she wants to just go home.  Did she exit the show ahead of schedule?  According to a report, this season of The Bachelorette wrapped one-week earlier than expected on Saturday, April 24.

So, take a look at the mega-promo below. Then let us know, who do you think will remain in the running for Katie’s heart towards the end of her journey … or is it another ‘Bachelor Nation’ bust, but this time for Katie?

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.
