Not interested in some of the B&B episodes. I wish they’d do a Sally Spectra (Darlene Conley) week or a slapped by Stephanie week. 🙂

For Y&R, I want a Baldwin-Fisher week. The end of yesterday’s episode had me hooked. I want to see the next episode. It’s a been a long time since Y&*R gripped me like that.

Glaring omissions from the Y&R Villains Week —- An episode with Vanessa Prentess, Suzanne Lynch, or Rose DeVille. I know that you can’t fit an episode of every Y&R villain in only 5 days. However, these characters and several others (Shawn Garrett; Cameron Kirsten, to name just two) were far more noteworthy (and better written) than Ryder, the poorly created son of Sheila Carter.

Barbara I agree with you 100%. Let’s show more of the good old days of Y&R, like you said Vanessa Prentess, what a witch, lol…Oh my I forgot about Suzanne Lynch…Rose DeVille, mean, lol

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.

GH’s Marcus Coloma On Nikolas and Ava’s Relationship: “It’s So Complicated Between Them.”

This week on General Hospital, things take a turn for Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) when his son Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel), finally communicates with him and it could force the dark prince to make a decision as to just what his relationship truly is about with Ava Jerome (Maura West).

According to a preview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Spencer wants Nikolas to divorce Ava, in order to allow his dad to come back into his life.

But according to Coloma, it’s not so easy when Nik tells Ava about Spencer’s request. “They get into a fight that is very contentious,” Marcus shares.  Then he adds, “It’s so complicated between them. I don’t know if she actually has love for Nikolas, or if she’s just genuinely after his money and the house.   And it’s the same with Nikolas.  I think it’s kind of about the money for him, but there’s also a deeper connection between Ava and Nikolas.”

So, in this game of cat and mouse between Nikolas and Ava, it appears to be winner take all for that Cassadine fortune, no matter what the cost.  But in the process, what will happen to Spencer and Nikolas’ relationship?

Through their greed, will Ava and Nikolas be drawn romantically to each other and this becomes more of a love-match that neither of them saw coming no matter how much they protest?
