Today, TOLN posted the final episode of the season of All My Children. We will not give out a blow by blow description, or major spoilers,  but a general overview, as many of you have not had the opportunity to watch the episode due to your plans for Labor Day!

But suffice to say, during the AMC season finale, the action really centers on four men whose stories intersect at points.  In the finale, David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) continues his revenge game on the town of Pine Valley and all his enemies. As you will see, he is ever the cagy master manipulator!  Speaking of master manipulator, JR (Ryan Bittle) is going around town trying to make amends to everyone he wronged, only he looks like he just might be up to some dirty tricks of his own in the book to get want he wants from people.  Elsewhere, Dimitri Marrick (Michael Nader) really left his heart on his sleeve with Brooke (Julia Barr).  Can these two work together if they truly have an attraction to one another?  And finally, Jesse (Darnell Williams) is trying to pick up the pieces after losing his job and trying to do right by Angie.  But Jesse always seems to end up in trouble, and the future may be no exception.

Of note for All My Children fans:  look for the final seconds of the finale episode for the cliffhanger!

Watch below what goes down with some of your favorite characters in Pine Valley in the season finale.  Then let us know, what did you think of the finale episode? What did you think about the cliffhanger?

I love Tad to, can’t wait to see him & Jesse work together! When does season 2 start? Any date I should log? Didn’t think I would enjoy AMC online but I really do like it, I can enjoy on my time & I don’t need to worry about running out of tape or time on my TV!

Really want Tad to come back! Would also like to see more of the original cast return. Don’t like this J.R. and would like Erica and Kendall back.

I have throughly enjoyed AMC 2.0. I liked the finale but it didn’t really feel like much of a finale. More like a normal episode. I’m hoping next season will start with some answers to a lot of the questions we have this season.

I loved the surprise at the end and hope it’s leading to much more of the same!! I think Jesse opening his own detective agency is a great idea, and can’t wait to see what happens as Miranda struggles with her feelings while watching AJ and Heather get closer. Most of all I’m looking forward to season 2 and Kendall’s return. Zach’s clearly not ready to move on, so I’m very anxious to see how that will all unfold. All in all and despite a rocky start, I thought AMC finished quite strong, and with a great set up leading… Read more »

I do hope this means that Tad is coming back. I think Dixie should fall hard for that new doctor first and then have a triangle with Tad. I really hope they don’t continue with this Lea and Zach relationship though. I don’t dislike Lea and they could put her with Griffin and give him more story but please bring Kendall back for Zach. I know Alicia is busy doing other stuff but she could come back and do one episode a week or every other week or something. They made it work for Roger Howarth on OLTL and he… Read more »

Great to see Tad back. That was a great surprise. I like that they did more of a setup for next season–setting up story for several characters rather than a big finale as such. Best of all the lack of any Zach/Lea stuff–leaving a lot of hope for Kendall to return and a potential Zendall story next season . All in all a nice ending to the season .

Can’t wait to see Tad (MEK) back! But what I really want to see is Kendall (Alicia Minshew) back.
Dixie gets Tad back.
Zach needs to get Kendall back!

AMC has been better than OLTL all the way through, but the OLTL season finale was better than the AMC finale.

I agree. I have been a fan of OLTL for many years and it didn’t pick up until the end. I haven’t watched AMC since the late 90’s, but have been impressed with the quality of writing on Hulu. The finale of OLTL was better, the finale of AMC felt more like a normal episode. It’s nice to see them bring back some of their original characters. What would have been a great finale if they brought back Erica Kane. I wonder if Susan Lucci will make an apperance in Season 2. I hope both shows come back soon.

I agree, AMC needs Erica Kane. I haven’t watched teh show because she isn’t on it. I wonder if ther ehave been any references to her; I assume she isn’t dead. Why not say in the last five years she filmed her mvie and has been nominated five years in a row and no Oscar and now she is staring on a soap called Devious Maids and hosting a show abut love gone wrong on Deadly Affairs. Have her come back to town to marry Jackson(even though Walt Willey has moved on maybe he could film one wedding scene) Then… Read more »

I LOVE having AMC back, make no mistake…but, rating this episode as a season finale I was completely underwhelmed. Seems just like a “regular” episode. I will always keep tuning in, though 🙂

I don’t see any kind of attraction coming from Brooke towards Dimitri. There’s no longing looks. She’s been oblivious to his gone from subtle to just plain stalker tactics of trying to make their relationship anything but professional. She’s always about her fiance Adam She was delighted when she immediately thought the diamond necklace was from him (he ALWAYS bought her stuff like that) and then dumbfounded it was Dim. She looked creeped out when Dim said it was him and then put it on her neck and attempted a kiss. She’s flat out told him she has no interest… Read more »

With Agnes Nixon consulting/involved, they do know the history .. 🙂

Cady McClain herself said they had no idea of the history of any of the veteran characters which is why the 1st half of the this Season was the Pelia/Ajanda show.

Agnes was consulting but she did nothing for the Brooke story. It’s totally OOC for Brooke and I stand by what I said.

There’s a reason they were both fired a couple of months back.

It will be great to have Tad back. However, I hope it is for a longer amount of time than Adam, Bianca,Kendall and Griffin. Glad to see trouble brewing with David, JR, and Colby. Starting to be fun to watch again.

It was another solid episode after a very good season. The highlight of the episode for me was Dimitri pursuing Brooke. I hope they can get Susan Lucci back for a short stint during season 2 to see Erica’s reaction if they ever sleep together! I liked how we got to see more of the friendship of Cassandra & Colby with David showing up with flowers, which throws more doubt on exactly what he wants from Angie. Also, it was nice to have Colby defend her brother, although I sadly think David’s right that he’s the only person she can… Read more »

I guess you wanted Brooke to sleep with Harold the Stalker back in the day to get Erica’s reaction.

Really? Brooke should cheat on the love of her life it took 24 yrs to finally get back with so you can see Erica’s reaction? Let me guess you’re a Brooke ‘fan’

I suspect Tad (Michael E Knight) is back only for a brief time or a Cameo tease. I hope I am wrong.
The “season closer” was nothing that enthralling – sorry it just wasn’t. My wish is that they will get some stronger writing and develop better storylines. Brooke and Dimitri as played by Julia Barr and Michael Nadar together, well, they are both very capable actors but even they can’t extract real drama from the scripts presented to them. Better plots are needed and longer scenes are needed as well.

Jesse and Angie and David really make the show now but what I’ve been missing the most is Tad. I hope they let him be as easy as he used to be.He would be the glue that holds the whole thing together. It was very disappointing when Adam was on the show. He said about 3 words.Where was the old Adam flair? He just had to yell “Winifred” one time and it would have been great. Michael Knight, we need you!!

How will we know when the 2nd season starts? Will it be published somewhere? I have watched AMC since the first day it started when I was home with my first baby, through all these years, grown children, various careers and now I am a retired senior citizen—still following the antics of Pine Valley residents.

I heard that the writers are already back writing new scripts for ALL MY CHILDREN. I sincerely doubt that we will have to wait THAT long for the second season to start. If that’s true though they will lose quite a few viewers don’t you think?

It was fine, but my biggest disappointment was that they did not reveal that David had a son and introduce him to David. Those scenes in the recent episode where he took care of the young man were so very touching.

I read that they will be going back into PRODUCTION on Oct. 21st, that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s when the new Season starts ~ but they already have some more shows ready to go I think – keeping up with the actual shows is easier than keeping up with all the backstage drama from Prospect Park ~

“A Knight to Remember”—loved the title, so I hope it means Tad is NOT being recast and Michael is returning. I have thoroughly enjoyed the new AMC, but one thing is lacking: Tad. MEK is a wonderful actor, he could always make me laugh, cry or just smile even if I was having a bad day. He does what great actors do, take you away from your reality for a bit.

MEK, you have made such a contribution to the world and your many fans. I sincerely thank you!

AMC is still missing two key characters, First, Tad and his comedy but really AMC could be any soap. It is missing its heart and the spice – Erica Kane. AMC NEEDS Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) she brings that something extra. Surely she is available for a recurring role now that Devious Maids and Deadly Affairs are finished for a while.

Oh I don’t think Kendall will be back. Alicia Minshew signed on to Tainted dreams and Sarah Michelle Geller has a new tv series.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
