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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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

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!

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
