It’s a good thing that there have to be a few plastic sippy cups around Sonny and Carly’s house, because after, oh, half an hour in lockdown, we figure General Hospital’s claustrophobic don would go so stir-crazy, and he’d start partaking of his favorite stress reliever: throwing barware.
Kristen DiMera: Doing an About-Face
Even to keep herself out of prison, no way in hell would Days of our Lives’ Kristen be able to stay away from Brady for long. So she’d spend this period of forced separation creating one of her infamously lifelike masks in order to return to Salem — and, of course, his arms.
Quinn Fuller Forrester: Making a ‘Point’
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Quinn might be perfectly happy holed up with hubby Eric during the lockdown — especially with no in-laws dropping by! But the jewelry designer would need a pastime — like forging fancy pins to stick in the Brooke voodoo doll she had delivered by Amazon Prime!
Victor Newman: Being ‘Framed’
Whether The Young and the Restless’ Victor is running Newman Enterprises, he’d still want to keep an eye on things, at least metaphorically. So while the staff is working remotely, he’d pose for a series of new portraits — one to be hung in every office in his skyscraper!
Julian Jerome: Antisocial-Distancing
The honeymoon was over for GH’s Julian and Nelle before it even began. So we could see the groom taking full advantage of social-distancing requirements to at all times put six feet — maybe even six feet wearing oversized clown shoes? — between himself and his “better” half.
Xander Kiriakis: Getting Buff (Well, Buffer!)
Being well aware that he’ll need to pull out all the stops if he’s ever to win Sarah’s forgiveness, Days’ Xander would spend his time in isolation doing three things: 1. Working out. 2. Working out. 3. Repeating 1 and 2. If his sincerity doesn’t move her, those biceps might!
Rick Forrester and Maya Avant: Establishing a Reconnection
Though B&B’s Maya and Rick split up — why, we may never know! — she’d surely want to let him “see” daughter Lizzy, at least over Zoom, during the pandemic. Maybe during those calls, the exes would realize that they share more than a child: unresolved feelings for one another.
Traci Abbott: Seeing a Ghost
Stuck at home, and between books, Y&R’s Traci might search for inspiration by web-surfing, a pursuit that would lead her to spot…holy crap! Is that her late love, Brad? The caption says it’s an L.A. publisher named Bill Spencer, but is it? Thus, a new obsession would be begun.
