The Bold and the Beautiful

The moment news broke that Linsey Godfrey was exiting Days of Our Lives, rumors began circulating that she might return to Bold & Beautiful as Caroline. We took a look at why that’s an interesting idea… as well as why it’s unlikely to come to pass. Meanwhile, thinking about potential combacks had us thinking about a missing character whose return would shake up several current relationships… and possibly lead to us finally finding out exactly what went wrong between Maya and Rick!

General Hospital

Viewers were shocked when Franco was killed off in cold blood by Peter August. They may have been almost as surprised to learn that Roger Howarth isn’t leaving the ABC soap even if his character has. Read what the actor had to say about Franco’s demise, his future, and previous characters he’s played who didn’t last. Whoever Howarth ends up coming back as,
it shouldn’t be Drew. Hear our explanation as to why.

Dustin doesn’t know what to believe about Chase’s paternity, actually managed to feel something for Finn and Anna as a couple, wasn’t convinced that bringing Zander back served much purpose, and suspects Peter and Cyrus’ alliance could spell doom for at least one of them in his General Hospital column.

The Young and the Restless

Hard as it is to believe, it’s been 16 years since Amelia Heinle debuted as Victoria. She was already a veteran of three other soaps by the time she joined the cast, but that didn’t mean she didn’t have some big shoes to fill as she took over the role of Victor’s powerful and ambitious daughter. She’s been on the front burner for years and we take a trek down memory lane for some of the highlights from her run so far.
