This Week’s BEACON HILL: Sarah Brown and Alicia Minshew Deliver Bravura Performances!

This past Wednesday, Beacon Hill released their 8th installment in an episode entitled, “Regret” which featured a knockout script which resonates to anyone who has ever been in a relationship only to have someone walk out on the other and have their heart and their trust broken.  And then, how do you deal with that when you see them again after many years?  Old feelings are dredged up: the hurt, anger, the regret, the love, it’s all there and underneath the surface.

With a fantastic script from Beacon Hill creators Linda and Jessica Hill along with Skip Shea, the latest episode finally brought Sarah Brown and Alicia Minshew together in a room as Katherine and Sara to have that long awaited conversation that was six years in the making in the back-story of Beacon Hill.

Sarah Brown is one of the finest actresses, period. When she is on screen she commands your attention and her choices are interesting and raw, and she captivates you.   And in “Regret” she truly delivered … the pain, the anger, the trying to make sense of it all at how this woman she loved walked out on her …. and now questioning …. what does she want?  Brown was phenomenal with playing all the complex emotions that were so relatable to anyone who has been in a similar situation or has even gone through a tad of the heartbreak of someone walking out on your relationship without saying even goodbye!

Alicia Minshew showed strength, vulnerability, and depth as well.  It was so nice to see her get a chance to show her chops in major scenes of substance once again, something she did time after time as Kendall Hart Slater on All My Children.  But Katherine is no Kendall.  And while Sara was the one who walked out on Katherine all those years ago, Minshew showed her hurt and regret for the pain she caused her former lady love, but still has that major issue with the thought of her grandfather (Ron Raines) manipulating Katherine for political gain and more!

The question becomes, how will these two former women-in-love, who clearly still have feelings for each other make it back to one another?  Or, will they?  If you have not got tuned into Beacon Hill yet, get on board now as there are only four episodes left of season one by subscribing via logging on to their website here!

Thanks for the recognition for this episode Michael. Sarah was amazing the last episode. I felt every emotion she conveyed. And Alicia was fantastic as well, I felt sympathy for her even though she was the one who left. Their chemistry is fanastic. Really, really enjoying this series.

They were friggin phenomenal. Sarah and Alicia hit every emotion perfectly. These two ladies together are making Beacon Hill one of the great soaps…

I liked the episode and like the show in general. I have to say that I found it a little disingenuous for a grown women to keep whining about her grandfathers control over her ex. Once-believable, Twice – if you have to. But over and over again?

I love it. The script is great, the acting superb, and the production is slick and professional. Each new project Crystal Chappell takes on (with the team she assembles) just keeps getting better. Keep up the great work, everyone!

Well said. Crystal is extraordinary. I’m so glad I started watching her Otalia storyline on GL, which led to Venice, then The Grove, and now Beacon Hill. Way to go, Crystal. Much gratitude from this fan!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
