On Monday, there was heartbreaking news for fans of the iconic Twin Peaks. The ABC soap that aired for only two seasons on ABC in 1990 and 1991, and is currently in production for its revival to air on Showtime, lost one of its most beloved cast members.

Catherine Coulson, who played Margaret Lanterman, the clairvoyant Log Lady, died at age 71 of cancer.  Coulson who also worked as a camera assistant throughout her professional career had worked with, and known Twin Peaks creator David Lynch for years.

In a touching statement on her passing Lynch related: “Today I lost one of my dearest friends, Catherine Coulson. Catherine was solid gold. She was always there for her friends — she was filled with love for all people — for her family — for her work. She was a tireless worker. She had a great sense of humor — she loved to laugh and make people laugh. She was a spiritual person — a longtime (transcendental meditation) meditator. She was the Log Lady.”

Coulson had previously described her Twin Peaks character as the “only normal person on the show,” though did admit that the Log Lady had experienced “some trauma and bonded with this Ponderosa pine.”

Last December, Coulson appeared at a Twin Peaks event in Philadelphia.  She revealed that she had received a call from David Lynch about reprising her role as Log Lady for the upcoming revival of the series.  While she revealed to the audience that Lynch did not offer up much for the plans for the Log Lady, and how she had developed in 25 years ago, she would only say, “He suggested I talk about sustainable forestry.”

I saw this entry had no comments, so although I don’t exactly remember her in Twin Peaks, I do know she was somebody’s loved one, so my condolences to her family and friends on her passing.

Alison Sweeney Reveals She Is Making A Return To DAYS In 2020

Looks like Sami Brady will be back in action on NBC’s Days of our Lives later in the New Year, according to Alison Sweeney, Sami’s portrayer.

During a visit on Friday to the set of Hallmark Channel’s morning talker Home & Family, to promote her upcoming holiday film for the network entitled, Time For You To Come Home For Christmas, Sweeney chatted it up with hosts Cameron Mathison and Debbie Matenopoulos.

During her segment, Alison revealed “Sami is back, causing some trouble.”  But she was quick to note that it will be awhile before she is seen on-air clarifying “My scenes are not going to air until next Summer, next August.”

Sweeney promised the viewers and DAYS fans that there was great stuff coming up with her visit.  And if Sweeney’s last few returns are any indication, whatever is cooking in and out of Salem that may bring her back on to the canvas, we know it will be juicy, because when Sami is around the pot gets stirred!

So, excited to hear Alison will be back on your DAYS screens in 2020? Comment below.

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
