Zach Remembers Myrtle On This Week's All My Children!

On this week’s All My Children episode #59, Zach (Thorsten Kaye) finds a picture of his dear friend, the late Myrtle Fargate (played by the beloved Eileen Herlie, who also passed away) and recalls the advice she gave to him … that he is entitled to happiness, and so is Kendall (Alicia Minshew).  What was great about this was that the new AMC actually used an archived clip that was first seen years ago on ABC’s version of All My Children.

Kudos to AMC executive producer Ginger Smith, who has maintained throughout season one, nods to some of the history of the show; bringing back characters such as Dimitri Marrick (Michael Nader) and Billy Clyde Tuggle (Matthew Cowles), and reminding viewers of the wonderful connection Zach had with Myrtle, as did Thorsten Kaye with Eileen Herlie.

And who can ever forget, the heartbreaking funeral of Myrtle put together by Zach!  It was a ten-hankie episode.  But what we recall the most, was the scene in which Zach broke down privately in an elevator over losing his dearest friend.

In current story, obviously Zach is trying to figure out what to do with his attraction to Lea (Paula Garces) and whether or not open up his heart to love again? Or,  should he hold out hope for a Zendall reunion?  What should he do?

Watch this week’s AMC episode below which recalls Myrtle, and an old AMC clip of Myrtle’s funeral where Zach breaks down over her death.  Then, share your thoughts!

Myrtle was such a big Zach and Kendall fan. I hope she guides him and Kendall back to each other. Their love story was unique and beautiful. It isn’t over, not by a long shot.

It’s always such a poignant treat to see any Zyrtle scenes! Those two have chemistry off the charts! Loved their relationship & loved seeing the clip – although hankies were definitely a must. Now put me in the ‘hoping for a Zen reunion’ column. I think that would make Myrtle and me very happy.

If Myrtle had still been alive, there probably wouldn’t have been a Zen divorce. Myrtle believed in them-she thought Zach and Kendall were forever meant for each other. lea is a poor substitute for what Zach had with Kendall, and I believe he would eventually realize that he had settled for second best. And he wouldn’t have had to wonder about it, Myrtle would have told him. JMO.

Great pic of Eileen Herlie btw!

I really miss Myrtle….
Zach wishes that he were still together with Kendall and even told Miranda so that very same day. He should work things out with his wife and reunite with his family. I don’t want Zach to settle because he thinks a reunion with Kendall isn’t possible. Their wedding vows even start that if there were ever apart they would find their way back to each other. A Zendall reunion would make me, Zach, Kendall, Spike Ian and Miranda very happy. I’m sure Myrtle would want that too. I hope Alicia Minshew returns. I love her chemistry with Thorsten Kaye.

Myrtle once said Zach and Kendall were the greatest love story she ever saw. That is saying something–something I totally agree with. Zach needs to be with Kendall and she needs to be with him

Myrtle just like the Zen fans knew that Zach and Kendall belonged together. It is pretty clear that Zach still loves Kendall and he will eventually realize that he will never be able to move on. He and Kendall will always find their way back to each other. If Myrtle were still alive she would be trying to get them back together.

Zach and Myrtle’s relationship was one of my favorite soap friendships. Myrtle was a true friend to Zach and he always valued both her advice and her friendship. Myrtle also was a true committed “Zendall” shipper and the flashback clip we saw where she tells Zach that both he and Kendall deserve to be happy, it was clear to me that she meant for them to move forward with each other and find that happiness. She was urging Zach to reveal his feelings to Kendall. I do not see any such feelings, even remotely, for Lea. Zach is definitely not over Kendall. The fact that he still wears his wedding ring proves that. For me to continue watching AMC, I want to see Zach reunited with his family ……Kendall, Spike and Ian. That is exactly what Myrtle would want for Zach, as well as for Kendall,

Myrtle was a great character (played by an amazing actress), and she so believed in Zach and Kendall. I’m hoping that when Zach was thinking about her, he was listening to her advice that he and Kendall should be together (always). If Myrtle were still here, she would tell him to fight for Kendall (and also would tell Kendall to fight for Zach). Hoping for our Zen reunion soon, please!!!

Interesting how ABC gave permission or allowed AMC to use some vintage clips since they are in a legal dispute with PP over the OLTL characters! I just don’t get people.

It’s nice that Zach remembers Myrtle and I’m sure we all remember her as well.
I also remember ALL MY CHILDREN as being a warm-hearted interesting show. I am sorry to say that the current inception on-line bears little resemblance to the former show. One current storyline which consists of Colby placing an imaginary skunk in Celia’s direction is too inane for words. The other question we’re supposed to care about and don’t is will Petey get together with Celia – who cares? Another storyline that is dragged out and not terribly compelling is Miranda and A.J. – how long can they make a storyline out of this?
I don’t mean to carelessly disburse Negative comments, sincerely speaking I have loved the show for many (too many) years and I hate to see it come down to these weak, unsubstantial scripts that even the best actors couldn’t breathe life into. I am NOT knocking the actors, they are doing their best. The writing however is thin and uninteresting and I hope that Season 2 of “AMC” shows improvement.

I couldn’t disagree more. Love the present storylines. Miranda & AJ are the Phil & Tara of old.. I can’t wait for season 2 !

Remember this was suppose to be weeks not months. It was dragged on because they cut the schedule in half.

Johnny

Well fine, it’s a free country – of course you can disagree.
But do you HONESTLY think that Colby planting a Skunk near Celia makes
for an interesting storyline? Is that the best they could come up with?

What I got out of that scene was that memories of Myrtle’s love and advice are going to guide Zach back to his one true love… Kendall.
Even Myrtle would have found Lea blah, bland, and nothing more than a blip on Zach’s radar… compared to the vivacious mother of Zach’s boys!

I remember this episode – I couldn’t watch without puddling up, like I’m doing now…

Loved seeing Agnes Nixon come out of nowhere to blow a kiss to Myrtle’s photo.

The only episode then-Head Writer Chuck Pratt got right!!

When Myrtle died, she left Zach a gift which he brought to Kendall’s bedside when she was in a coma. The gift was an album of photos of Zach, Kendall and a brass ring, which both he and Kendall had grabbed a hold of and were holding on to for dear life through some very tough times. The lesson, Zach realized, was that Myrtle was telling Zach now, when Kendall was on death’s door, to keep holding on and to be patient because Kendall would come back to him. So I’m being patient and waiting for Kendall and Zach to find their way back to each other, just like Myrtle wanted for him. That’s Myrtle’s lasting wish for all Zendall fans. Patience. It’ll happen.

So glad Zach remembered Myrtle. They had one of the most special relationships on the soaps. Myrtle always showed Zach his heart. It’s nice when the current regime acknowledges past relationships.

What a beautiful friendship Zach and Myrtle had. I loved how she encouraged Zach to listen to his heart. She knew that Kendall was his heart and the only woman for him. I am looking forward to a Zendall reunion in season 2. They are one of AMC’s biggest Supercouples with a huge fanbase. A return of Alicia Minshew paired again with Thorsten Kaye will boost TOLN’s numbers and delight a faithful legion of fans.
As for Myrtle I think she’d be smiling down on Zach as he works to put his family back together.

AMC and OLTL ratings are not very good in m any ways but I hope they survive. Great chemistry but AMC needs their heart, their passion and drive back . Brooke, Zach, Dixie, Ada when he is own, Angie and Jesse just aren’t Erica Kane. Seeing Erica reminded me that she is so pivotal to AMC. Bring back Susan Lucci. It is not AMC without her.

Johnny

It’s NOT All My Children without Erica Kane or Tad Martin, it’s just not the same, despite what viewers may say.
Does anyone REALLY care about Celia and Pete? They have like zero chemistry together and when Celia smiles it’s like she’s inhaling gas. Why would Colby, this gorgeous blonde, go out of her way to make Petey like her when she could get like any guy she wanted – it doesn’t make sense.

Ash
Ash

so true. I mean i guess Pete has a great chest but then again there was Ryan Lavery. Tad and Erica and more important their portrayers brought life to the show. Julia Barr and the actress who play Dixie are awesome actors but they aren’t Knight or Lucci – they were borne wiht pizzazz, spark and that je ne sais quoi!

Prospect Park and AMC showed a lot of class when they showed this clip. No flash and trash, just two great actors sharing a screen. Thank you!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
